A few years back, this reporter used to have a game, when watching an old movie on TV. He would take a look at clues in the movie, such as technology, fashion, and, most notably, social attitudes, and try to figure out when the movie was made. There were certain landmarks that were very useful; one notable one was the radical difference in the attitude towards women which would clearly demarcate a movie made before 1969 from a movie made after 1971. It was therefore with great interest to see how a sex romp from the early 1960's would stand up to today's standards. However, with the Bergen County Players' production of Boeing-Boeing, it turns out that not only is this not a problem, it is not even an issue.

The British author, Douglas Adams, once observed that the difference between the British and the Americans is that the British think 100 miles is a long distance, and the Americans think that 100 years is a long time. Being Americans, the 100th anniversary of the Oradell Public Library is definitely an occasion to celebrate, and, on Sunday, April 28th, celebrate they did. Here are a few photos illustrating the event.

Part of the Arbor Day Foundations requirements to be a "Tree City USA" is to have regular Arbor Day ceremonies. Many towns have small ceremonies, but the Dumont Shade Tree Commission has never been known to go by half measures, and includes contests with prizes, the planting of a new tree in the Arboretum (on West Shore Avenue between Madison and New Milford Avenues), and other ceremonies along with it, and their April 27th, 2013 Arbor Day celebration continued with that tradition.

It was a sunny Sunday (April 7th, to be precise), the kind of pleasant spring weather that they had in New Netherland, as this area was called when the Dutch were in control in the 17th Century. And, after a major cleanup of the grounds in the morning, the Bergen County Historical Society presented a program on the people who inhabited the area at the time.
