Thanks to the acumen of Tony Bucco and Len LoPinto, the latest showing of the Paramus Cultural Council was a show to see. We thought the Mahoney Bros., Jukebox Heroes was great, this show was on a par if not better. Played at the Westfield Garden State Plaza Bandshell, the audience was clapping, yelling â€˜Bravoâ€™ and even dancing on the perimeter.
On August 6th, a hot sunny day, the Paramus Municipal Pool Wahoo was held. Diving was divided into 4 categories: 8 & under, 9 â€“ 11, 12 â€“ 15 and 16 & up. The day was perfect for them. Matthew Frohnapfel was on hand wearing a Yankee shirt and Mayor Tedesco introduced him to everyone.

In 1975 just as I started my professional career I met a man named Jerry. Jerry was the most decent, gentle, affable, hard working, well rounded man I had ever met. He was also the most humble. He was a clerk for the company I worked for but there was something about him that made me always feel there was much more. Iâ€™d like to tell you what I learned over the next twenty years about a hero.
As I entered the automatic doors of the Comfort Inn on Rte 17 South, I asked the pretty receptionist for Fernando. "He's not in." she replied. Swallowing a gasp (the weather was boiling hot), I mentioned that I had an appointment with him. She immediately got on the phone and then assured me that it was no problem, Sean would be out in a few minutes. I was assured that he would be able to help, that Fernando had called in sick.
