Show Your Scarlet Knight Pride

Tomorrow looks like a great day to walk the boardwalk and if you’re a Rutgers alumnus or supporter you might want to join up with a contingent of your fellow Scarlet Knights who will stroll the boards in Lavallette, Ortley Beach, Seaside Park and Seaside Heights.

Bob Salomon Scores Again For The Kids

Bob Solomon is at it again. About seven years after he helped create and publish a critically-acclaimed children’s book with a baseball theme he’s back. Solomon and his team have released “Beyond the Laces” which as you might guess uses the sport of football to send a message which will resonate with children and parents alike.

Trump Takes the Heat

Quoting a former President of the United States I want to make this perfectly clear: ”I am not a Donald Trump supporter.” However even in these politically correct times I’m amazed at the fallout over comments Trump made last month when he announced he would seek the Republican nomination for president.
