Like many Americans, I am feeling a little less financially secure these days. As the holiday season inches closer, I feel like I should be scrimping and saving, not spending and splurging.

But with prices as low as they are in retail stores, this could be one of the best opportunities for holiday shoppers to buy big-ticket items at bargain prices. Plus we can’t postpone the holiday season until a time that is more convenient for us. Try explaining that to your kids.

What we can do is make sure we’re getting the biggest bang for our buck; the best way to do that is to shop locally.

letter-to-the-editorHow many times have you noticed something on a wall of a public place called a ‘Defibrillator’ or ‘A.E.D.’?

I did notice one in the Anthony Amalfe Community Center here in Roselle and being a retired L.P.N., I did know what it was. I asked around and found out that most people had no idea. That’s when I decided that it was time we offered an opportunity to let the mysterious medical magic speak for itself.

Paul Mucha, deputy chief of the Roselle Fire Department agreed that ignorance is not always bliss and that the reason the defibrillators are out in public means that the public should know what they are for and how to properly use them. These are not inexpensive devices and although they don’t literally bring the dead back to life, (like on TV shows), there is the possibility they may provide the few minutes difference we might need.
