These are desperate times for those fleeing their home countries for safety and freedom. In the face of the stunning injustices the president’s government has been inflicting on those in need, many of us are wondering what can one person do. Despite the walls going up (literal or figurative), there are still organizations working to […]
Growing up, my family was not particularly religious. I learned Hebrew from a private tutor, alongside the children of a couple family friends, but only stepped foot in a synagogue once or twice throughout my childhood. My family was part of a group of similarly-minded Jewish families that would gather in a church basement on […]

Each year I get excited about summer vacation. I go to schools and talk up fun programs to kids and teens, and share with them some of the books I’ve enjoyed. I daydream about long weeks with nothing to do, but visit the library and read read read. I was definitely one of those kids […]

Wallingford Playfield equipment is scheduled to be replaced this Fall (and will be closed for a while while that happens) due to a termite infestation in the swings. While they’re replacing the swings, they’ll be replacing all the old equipment with metal equipment as well, presumably to avert future termite incursions. It’s a $400,000 project, […]

I’ve always been fascinated with sourdough. With regular bread, you’ve got your flour, your water and your yeast. The yeast comes in a powder from Fleischmann’s or whomever, and it’s yeast: you mix in with the flour and water, you wait for the little yeasties to eat the sugars in the flour, toot out some […]
