Is it a miracle? You decide!


Is it a miracle?
Is it a miracle?
Just before Yom Kippur, I asked Councilman Keith Zakheim if he was going to fast for this event. His strong assertive response was "I always fast!" Although I strongly adhere to being Jewish, there are times when I don't observe all the protocols. Keith's firmness in our belief gave me the impetus to fast for this solemn holiday.

Several things happened after that!

Miracle!


By Alexis Fabrikant
Miracle
It has always been said that I ask too many questions. In my formative years my mother called me Curious George,. Now that I am older I am often called The Interrogator by some of my favorite people.

One important part of my life is finding out who I am, who are the people that make up my family? I realized this sense of urgency when I was a sophomore in college.

A father and a brother speaks out!


Loving Brothers
Loving Brothers
PROUD FATHER, LOVING BROTHER Reaching Closure
By Robert Fabrikant 

More than 50 years ago I first learned that my father had a son from a former marriage. For reasons entirely inexplicable, I never sought out my brother from that former marriage. My father had turned his back on that son when the boy was not even 10 years old. Perhaps out of a sense of loyalty to my father, I blindly followed his example. Even after my father died, I stayed the course without giving it any thought. I did so even though my father had never told me why he had forsaken his first son.

New cancer treatment much more precise

Lying on his back on a hard table, Michael Robinson holds himself perfectly still, closes his eyes, quietly sings gospel songs to himself and seeks guidance from above.

During the next 10 to 15 minutes, a machine that looks like an oversized hair dryer from a beauty shop swivels around his head, buzzing and shooting high-energy X-rays into his mouth.

A Valentine to Marriage


 
Kay and I will be married 45 years in August. How can that be?  I'm only 18.  But it's true. I guess you can say with assurance: "45 years that's a long marriage". These days I would have thought "long marriage" was an oxymoron. We're inundated with reports of celebrities being married for a weekend or going from one marriage to another like Brad Pitt and Jennifer-or is it Angelina? Seemingly bouncing from bed to bed like Tom Cruise jumping off a couch.

Doctors debate the current medical methods of detecting prostate cancer

Harry Truman was famously frustrated by economic advisers who could never offer an observation without adding, "but on the other hand." The president joked that what he needed was a one-armed economist.

It's kind of that way when it comes to screening for prostate cancer.

The problem rests with the PSA test. An elevated reading may indicate a tumor, but on the other hand...

"It's only one test, only one view, and you cannot really rely on that alone," said Dr. Israel Barken, a urologist and leader of the San Diego Prostate Cancer Support Group.

PARAMUS IS A SAFE COMMUNITY


In a letter sent To the Editor of The Town News and published 1/18/06, Police Chief  Fred Corrubia lashed out at one of their articles relating to Paramus not being a safe community. With his permission we are re-printing it here:

Corrubia400.jpg

Your Jan. 11, 2006 article, “FBI crime report: Paramus statistics vary” notes that a waning number of police officers employed by the borough signals that inflating crime rates may stay on the rise if vacancies in the Paramus Police Department are not filled soon. The Town News also notes a correlation between increasing criminal activity in Paramus and decreasing number of police officers employed by the borough.

Statements such as these would lead citizens to believe that Paramus is being patrolled with fewer officers than in the past. Nothing is further from the truth!

Paramus Cultural Arts Council Bullletin


Valerie Coniglio has issued the Fall edition of the PCAC bulletin. In it she thanks everyone who participated in making the inaugural year a success. Recognizing that the weather wasn't always as friendly as the Paramus residents, Valerie feels that these events have helped knit Paramus into a tighter community.

Commenting on the July 22nd reopening, she wrote " Those who were there would undoubtedly agree that it was a refreshingly nostalgic evening. It was a unique moment to be able to look out on the lawn as mother's fed their infant babies, young adults sat on blankets and grandparents tapped their feet to the tunes."
