Humans Reap The Health Benefits Of Canine Companionship
By Colleen Kelly
The health benefits of owning a dog have long been known, but now people are starting to bring dogs into hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and prisons where canine affection is changing peoples’ lives and promoting wellness.
Only a dog owner could relate to the feeling of being greeted by ecstatic, tail-wagging euphoria after a hard day at work. Every day, regardless of what you’ve accomplished or where you’ve been, your dog is elated to see you, and that joy can be contagious.

…It’s not just about diving anymore
For decades, the island of Bonaire, located in the Dutch West Indies, (Lesser Antilles) has been known as a diver’s paradise. Year after year, divers return to the protected waters around this island of 14,000 residents, never tiring of the beauty below the water. But over the past few years, more and more visitors are coming to this 24-mile long Caribbean paradise to take in the beauty above the water as well, and all of the activities it offers.

Month of August -Judy Banta Lewis
AIRES-The aspects to the 1st house of your solar chart are stunning. The good news is people will see you as a powerful spirit. The bad news is they may be overwhelmed by your energy and go into an avoidant mode. If your associates see you walking down the hallway and slip into the bathroom just so they don’t have to face you, it could be time to tone down that Aries personality. Just a thought, the astral advice suggests.
TAURUS- Mars in the 2nd house of finance and nicely aspected will find you pushing for the financial advantage that you so deserve. At this time you sense the universe is in harmony with your inner soul. Money and success are not bad words. Your pot of gold will begin filling in the month of August.
GEMINI– Short trips can lead to adventure as you seem destined for excitement. Time away from home leaves you lusting for more. This is a month that will be remembered as one of the best life has to offer. Normal concerns will return in the fall but now is the time for FUN.
CANCER- Activity to the 5th house of your solar chart with Mercury Continue reading Horoscope-STARGAZINE

Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He’s looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. Continue reading The Guy’s -Attic Ensemble
Nickola Dudley’s earlier work mainly consisted of family and friends in mundane situations. Even though the subjects stood or sat close together there was never any interaction or tension. They kept their distance, remaining remote and seemed content in doing so. The artist eventually became more interested in the space between them and started pulling the areas out. These spaces soon became her new subjects.

If you need to ask what “going green” means, then you are probably not part of the movement to conserve energy, and well, in a nutshell, save the planet. Of course you have heard of global warming and the dire predictions by former Vice President Al Gore and a host of scientists from around the world. But what are we doing right here in Hudson County to conserve energy and make our environment safer for generations to come?
There was a time not that long ago, when Hudson County was known for its toxic waste dumps, much of it created by factories that produced carcinogens that leaked into the land, air, marshes and local rivers. But in the 1980’s, there was a slow but steady change to start cleaning up the toxic sites, along with a massive new urban renewal of the waterfronts in Hudson County that drew corporations and developers to Hudson County. Today, Hudson County is considered by many city, state and national organizations as one of the most progressive counties when it comes to cleaning up and protecting the environment.
