  • Every vote really does matter

    I have always loved documentaries.

    Give me a movie about some real-life situation, a good book of someone's memoirs or a television show documenting something worth watching, and I'm set.

    I didn't realize I had a thing for documentaries until maybe seven years or so ago when I began watching real-life crime shows and made-for-TV movies on Lifetime.

    My first crime shows were "CSI" and "Law and Order SVU."

    I know those shows aren't documentaries, and aren't real life, but it got my interest in real-life crime dramas started.

  • When I'm wrong, I can admit it

    I don't mind admitting when I'm wrong. And boy was I wrong last week.

    Earlier this year, I wrote a column and a front-page story asking those who might be interested in starting a community reading club to contact me. More than 20 people responded, and we had the first meeting of the CKNJ Bookmarks in April.

    Our first book was "Marley and Me" by John Grogran. The story of a family and its neurotic dog, the book was a great read and we're all looking forward to the movie based on the book, which is scheduled to be released in December.

    October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is sad that we must designate a month to highlight the problem of domestic violence, but this perverse, insidious malady is not going away.

    Each September, the National Network to End Domestic Violence conducts a 24-hour census across the entire United States. Shelters and other agencies who work with victims of violence are asked to count the number of people they helped during that day.

    Here are some of the statistics from September 2007 (2008 numbers are still being tabulated).

  • Be safe this Halloween

    Tomorrow evening, our community will be filled with ghosts, goblins, witches, princesses, all sorts of strange-looking animals - and just about any other character a child's imagination can invent.
