As a California native, I am struck daily by the abundance of water surrounding us from our brooks, creeks and rivers to our estuaries, lakes and reservoirs. I am fascinated by the flow of water through our woodlands, across our farmlands and ultimately supplying thousands upon thousands of people with drinking water in our nearby metropolitan areas. I know the majority of the waters in Sullivan County flow westerly to drain into the Delaware River Basin where they join with the waters that flow easterly into it from Pennsylvania. Read more
Once again this election season, I received campaign literature with a bold headline: “This is OUR Town!” This time the candidates are Lang and Pierce for town council. I have tried to figure out just who belongs to “Our Town.” I wondered if I owned our town, seeing as how I was born and raised here. Then I thought maybe seniority had something to do with it.

With Election Day drawing near I would like to remind everyone to get out and vote for Paul Menditto for Magisterial District Judge. I have known Paul for many years, and I have always known him to be a kind, helpful and generous man. He is always working to help out and better our community. Always volunteering for various community functions, as well as encouraging others to follow suit. He is a family man with values and principles. Integrity is a sign of a true leader, just one more reason to vote for Paul Menditto in the upcoming election.
Paul Menditto has been in our township for multiple years and has supported our community and neighboring communities relentlessly. He has always been a helping hand when someone called for assistance, whether large or small. Paul has shown true resolve and unwavering character. Paul Menditto is a man of integrity and will be a judge for the people, who will be fair, honest and thorough to all concerned.
Please join me in supporting Paul Menditto for magistrate.

In this political climate an ideal such as this is a rarity, even nonexistent. However, this is exactly what I bore witness to with my own eyes on October 20 at the Paul Menditto Barbeque Fundraiser. Republicans, Democrats and Independents came together to support Menditto for Magisterial District Judge. Read more
