Now I know I grabbed your attention...Commingling literaly means to mix together. While this is a NO-NO for real estate agents to mix funds together...it is a good thing for recycling!Starting January 1, 2008, the town of Mahwah will begin to commingle recyclables including: glass, plastic and medal materials. Up until then, the residents always had to separate these items and put them out on a particular day of the week separate from the trash collection day. Now these items can be put together in one container. This new procedure should make recycling and collection of these recyclable items easier. Area residents should look for a new brochure due out in December.

 At 6 am this morning, approximately 400 teachers, parents and students drove to Ramapo Ridge Middle School and readied themselves for the trip ahead to Frost Valley, NY. Now seen as an annual right of passage, area 6 th graders weather a sleepliness night on Sunday anxious about their first trip away from home --- alone --- with 300 classmates & friends. At the start of the middle school experience, in Mahwah at least, students are invited to attend the camp in the Catskills as a way of bonding with their peers, teachers and administrators; they embark on hands-on explorations of geography, history, reading and just plain fun. They sleep in lodges on bunk beds. They stay up way too late. And, they learn for the first time, to be without their parents and without the support of their li...

 On September 15, 2007 a local teenager turned a sweet 16 event into her own personal food drive for area residents. Kira "W" (full name withheld), a junior at Mahwah High School, wanted to do more then celebrate her birthday. She wanted to give back to those around her that may be less fortunate.   Kira hand-made and mailed or hand delivered creative lolly-pop invitations that requested that all her guests bring a non-perishable food or personal care item to gain entrance to her birthday party. She visited the local food bank, the Center for Food Action in Mahwah and spoke with the director to see what items were most needed. She made a list and sent it to all her guests via email and instant messages. She made a poster, purchased balloons and hung a banner from the food bank.   At the...
