1860's style baseball came to New Bridge Landing on Saturday, July 5th, 2014, with the Flemington Neshanocks returning, this time playing a double header against the Brooklyn Eckfords. And this year, the weather was perfect, sunny, seasonably warm (as opposed to last year's heat wave), with a good crowd showing up at the Bergen County Historical Society's stomping grounds.

On Saturday, June 14th, the day before Father's Day, fathers and children came down to Hardcastle Pond in New Milford to say "no" to drugs and "yes" to a morning of fishing fun. While the Drug & Alcohol Municipal Alliance Committee came through with a great event, as usual, this year the attendance was down to 48 children this year. This was largely due to the people who started the New Milford Run not being able to find another day in the entire year when they could hold their event, forcing families to have to choose to chose between two of the few family friendly events that New Milford has every year. However, those who chose to attend this event certainly made a good choice, as we shall see.

After 50 years of raising money for charity and having fun doing it, the New Milford-Teaneck Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks' 2014 carnival almost didn't happen, when they lost their provider. But McDaniel Brothers Shows of Lodi came through. We can only hope the weather holds out, too (maybe the thunderstorms can be marketed as a fireworks display?).

We can start off with a simple statement: If you love theater, you are going to love this play. If that fits you, you can stop reading this review, right now. Just buy a ticket to the Bergen County Players production of Ruthless! The Musical at the Little Firehouse Theater in Oradell, New Jersey, and see it. Now, to break into the first person for a few seconds, I will admit that I love the theater (which, if you see this play, you will see is not a necessary quality in a reviewer), and I had a great time. But the purpose of this is not to say whether or not I enjoyed the play; it is to help you decide if you will enjoy the play. So let's go on to the details.

Every year, the Dumont Shade Tree Commission attempts to top itself in its Arbor Day celebration, and the 2014 edition (on April 26th) was no exception. There was the usual presentations, art contest, and tree planting, but this year, there was something a little, well, different.
