The Paramus Library's monthly travel film series, "In the Spotlight", features "Touring America's Ghost Towns" on Monday, January 15 at 12:30pm. The film features a collection of anecdotes and history when, with the race West for gold and mining, towns sprang up overnight with prospectors, hustlers, gamblers and outlaws. When they moved on, left behind were empty buildings and silent streets. Many of these ghost towns are still standing -- some deserted, and others too alive to qualify as "dead." The film is free and open to all. Light refreshments are served. Seating is on a first come basis. The library is located at 116 E. Century Blvd. For more information, please call 201-599-1300.
Mel, youâ€™ve got to see these four actors from Paramus perform was the exhortation from my good friend, Diane Marichal. They are acting in â€˜Annie Get Your Gunâ€™ staged by the Garage Theater Group over at Fairleigh Dickinson. I listened; I attended; I was enthralled!
Arriving early gave me the chance to meet some of the staff and most importantly Michael Bias, the Artistic and Producing Director.
Helix Electric likes its employee holiday parties so much that it plans to hold three this year.
Times are good for the large electrical contractor, which reported a 20 percent increase in revenue over the past year. With 1,400 employees scattered throughout California and southern Nevada, the three regional parties give everyone a chance to celebrate with co-workers.
A few of the vehicles looked like cartoons, and one resembled something you might ride at a theme park. Others were actually sleek.
Whatever the case, their manufacturers - and their environmentalist allies - hoped the vehicles on display at the Alternative Car and Transportation Expo would capture the imagination of consumers weary of sticker shock at the gas pump and headlines about the global atmosphere turning into a toaster oven.

For stylists, a client's happiness is only inches away. Cut enough hair and see a transformation. Cut too much and get served with a lawsuit.
But all too often there's something else in the mix. That client, the one who wants to look like that celebrity in the magazine clipping, also wants free counseling because the world is crashing down around her. Oh, and she doesn't want to be judged.
