Lakewood parents join in the camp spirit

 Vuss tut men nit far der kinder! Look around its color war on wheels. As boys camp season begins the camps are at it again outdoing and competing with each other who can have the best PR and placement on the cars. The shtick changes yearly from the simple bumper sticker to a magnet to a flag a mirror sleeve or perhaps soon a fully painted vehicle. Bright colors catching attention as kids drive with pride ans a badge of honor to the camp they are attending. The parents happily join in despite finding it a bit embarrassing, they join along knowing it makes their children happy. That's real pride thats not needed to be displayed.

How much do you pay for that watermelon, how to pick one out.

When it comes to watermelon shopping how many of us actually buy it in one of the local frum stores. Unlike other items, watermelon can not be sold close to an expiration date at a cheaper price. The frum Lakewood stores either can not or wont compete with shop rite or other brand name stores. Many would love to shop and patronize local merchants but not at any price. Watermelon this week on sale at ALDI supermarket $3.99, Stop and shop 69¢/lb. with your card. 
To pick a nice watermelon, look for a nice symmetrical shape free of cuts and bruises. The bottom of melon should be a nice yellow color, showing that it laid on the ground as the sun ripened it. Since it is mostly water, it should be heavy in weight so you know it is not yet drying out. There are, of course, certain health risks associated with spoiled watermelon, so always remember to practice food safety and enjoy your fruits and vegetables prior to their eat by date.

Give back to the Doc

DR. Shanik is synonymous to Lakewood like apple pie is to America. Well not really a comparison but you get what were saying here. Doctor Shanik, not only is he Lakewood's pediatrician (no offense to the others) but he and his wife have established Lakewood's original Tzedakah- Ahavas Tzadaka for poor families. Show support and give something back to the doc whose always there for us 24/7 literally. Bais Faiga hall 7:15 pm.

Parking meters coming to downtown?
Who are they fooling here, parking is not the main problem now. Metered parking will not necessarily fix or clean up the mess. You would think there are no other shopping areas in town. Yes many enjoy and would like to shop downtown on main street. Unfortunately, there are still stores and elements that keep people away from shopping there, its not only a parking problem. Although the downtown still seems to be a favorite place to shop for many, more has to be done. Women and children are scared and not comfortable to walk by certain areas of Clifton Avenue. Adding   meters will push customers to shop elsewhere.
