    Was anyone aware of once again how the board of education has shown it’s colors. I am a parent of a student at calvary academy which is a private school in lakewood. Our 1st day of school is 9/3/15 at 8a why did the board of education wait till 9/2/15 at 430p to notify us that our busing has been cut. Do they not realize most of us work this is very unacceptable. How could this happen? Why is calvary academy the only school in lakewood which has no busing now? I would love to hear their explanation.

    Why is the scoop not investigating Helen tobia’s pugery on the witness stand!!!! The state monitor is pressing tenure charges against her for LYING UNDER OATH and she is still in her same position of power. Any normal place of work would put someone like this at the very least on leave pending an investigation. The woman has more than nine lives and is still causing havoc and not allowing special need students out of district into placements like schi and the center. Contact anyone in the special ed department or anyone at the center or even better Michael Inzelbuch for more information.

    I find it interesting that in the Shopper coverage of the Kol Aryeh Melava Malka the Gedolai Torah in Lakewood that are koveir ittim in Kol Aryeh and wrote Berachos in the sefer are not mentioned. These are the masmidim that are always found in the Bais Medrash and not at photo ops
    Kol Aryeh is a place where they give Kavod LaTorah so let’s hear it for HaRav HaGaon Eliyahu Levin shlita, Harav HaGaon Chaim Yerucham Ginsburg shlita, HaRav HaGaon Meir Reuven Berkovitz . Come to Kol Aryeh and see their Geshmake in learning.

    Shemittah Produce has Reached these Shores
    Currently produce from Israel has been sighted in the wholesale fruit and vegetable markets on the East Coast. Boston area Vaad Hakashrus reports that produce from Israel already available in area supermarkets under the name “Holyland”, which may have Kedushas Sheviis (or alternately require Terumos and maasros). Likewise, produce of Israel has become available in the Midwest and the COR of Detroit reports that it is available in Meijer Supermarkets, where sunset loose red Bell Peppers and Sunset Organic Sweet Bell Peppers state “Product of Israel” on the label/ package. These have the status of Shemittah, and should not be purchased. If already purchased, a Rav must be consulted.
    Consumers should always take care when buying produce to check the sticker, bag, label or original case for country of origin, especially in this Shemittah year (since Shemittah produce has special kedushah governing its purchase and consumption). Examples of Israeli produce commonly found in the United States include carrots, tomatoes, citrus fruit, persimmons, pomelos, dates and parsley.

    Lakewood based Charity founded by Pearl Perri Reich Susholz should be questioned.
    Save Penina’s Children’s Charity SPCC uses the same name and logo as
    the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. It is not
    however as one could research affiliated. Nor is it a registered
    charity or non profit according to NY state, NJ and the IRS tax
    bureau. Its purpose is questionable and it is somehow affiliated with
    an online jewelry business and a style blog. There is also a Facebook page. In a search we found this charity
    and thought it was affiliated with the Society for the Prevention of
    Cruelty to Children because it has the same brand and initials but we
    could not find a tax id or 501(c)3 number or status. Is she selling jewelry or her modeling? How does
    that relate to children? If someone sends money, what is it used for
    and how do I know this is a legitimate charity? Did she promote this on Dr. Phil and the Daily News?

    Please do not make this public knowledge unless verified! I noticed that the sheimos trailer on Pine Street right before Martin Luther King Dr. is taking sheimos. However, the truck was there the whole year and never removed the sheimos from inside. It appears to me that they are just adding more sheimos to the old sheimos from last year. I was wondering if you could somehow verify this and notify the public. I hope it’s not a sheimos scandal.

    A Liberated Car

    I was a pedestrian standing by the light on Madison and Sixth street waiting for the sign to cross west. A car turning left onto Sixth from Madison was driven by a one-handed driver . The other hand was occupied with his cell phone. The only way the maneuver worked for the sharp turn required was to let go of the wheel. Now the car was driven without hands on the wheel for a while. However, the newly liberated car knew no better than to follow the direction of the car diagonally across the intersection endangering life and limb.

    The Torah says venishmartem meod al nafshosachem and certainly for other neshomos.

Fortunately she ran into a neighbors house real quick and escaped their affront. The police are investigating the incident as of this time. Please post so that all mothers are aware of this incident and are on the lookout for these maniacs bothering young girls.

    When Lakewood area residents need information about health care and health insurance issues, they now have a convenient place to go: UnitedHealthcare’s Community Storefront, which opened on October 15 at 212 2nd Street near Lexington Avenue in Lakewood.

    The UnitedHealthcare Community Storefront will enable Lakewood area residents covered by one of UnitedHealthcare’s commercial, individual, Medicare or Medicaid health insurance plans to get information on insurance, healthcare and wellness issues. It’s only the fourth community storefront that UnitedHealthcare has opened in the tri-state area.

    While it will serve all residents, UnitedHealthcare selected the location as part of a special outreach to the Jewish community in the area. Other UnitedHealthcare Community Storefronts tend to be in ethnic neighborhoods and serve the needs of the neighborhood.

    The grand opening was on October 15. It was open to the general public and included health screenings, promotional giveaways and kosher food between 10:00am and 4:00pm.

    Many people in the Lakewood community will want to know more about the UnitedHealthcare Community Storefront. If you would like to write a story about how one health insurer is reaching out directly to communities, we could arrange a tour of the Storefront and an interview with the chief executive officer of UnitedHealthcare’s New Jersey operations.

    If you need to get more information immediately, please contact Mary McElrath-Jones at mary_r_mcelrath-jones@uhc.com (914) 552-5713.

    Thanks for your consideration,

  • WARNING for parents buying people speak 5 says:
    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    Much is to be admired about the people and kids speak series. Sadly the last story (Title of story: the grand scheme), in the new People speak, #5 sends a terrible and dangerous message,applauding someones recklessness.

    In the story a Rebbe is trying very hard to coax a child to take his adhd medication.The Rebbe comes up with a scheme to make the child realize there is nothing wrong with the medication and nothing to be ashamed of.

    Very nice except part of accomplishing this is that the Rebbe WITHOUT doctor approval,TAKES one of the Prescribed Medications, a known controlled substance!

    The story then goes on to laud the Rebbe for his caring and ingenuity. The Father of the Rebbe is so proud of his son for thinking of this ploy to help a talmid, that he actually RECOMMENDS that rebbeim/teachers with similar issues can try the same thing for their students as it worked so well and advises
    “Don’t worry there is nothing wrong with taking one pill.”

    Most add/adhd drugs are fairly safe. However,virtually all even in a minute amount have some immediate effect on the mood and the wrong “one”pill can actually have an undesired effect on a person similar to steroid rage. Additionally, there can be unknown drug interactions or health complications.(There is a real reason why there are different brands of stimulant and some with short and some with long acting release)

    To unnecessarily take any prescription medication,without doctor oversight especially one that effects mood and then in a book to say that there is nothing wrong with it is horrible. This is doubly wrong as so many readers of people speak are preteen-teenagers who know people on adhd drugs, and might think there is nothing wrong if they have just one, or even a rebbe after reading this story might actually listen to this advice as it comes from such a respected source.

    This is the type of story that induces people (especially impressionable young people)to think there is nothing wrong with prescription painkiller and adhd drugs even if they don’t have a severe enough need or do not realize due to lack of medical or mental oversight the need to treat their problem in a different fashion.
    There is a reason why these are controlled substances. This story can easily be a prototypical one pill scenario that leads to a second then third pill…

    Additionally, after the Rebbe demonstrates taking the pill in front of the class, some other boys in the class divulge that they are on various medications and name them as well in front of the whole class. If I were a parent of a child that needed medication regardless of issue I would not want my child to broadcast it to the entire grade.Additionally for teenagers reading this story they might get misguided. Even a teenager must first consult with parents before telling friends about health or mental issues they might have,as there reason to divulge might be shortsighted.

    I do not know how they allowed this story, as it is wrong on so many fronts and can send a terrible message to the intended audience especially based on its best seller reliability.

    The seforim store told me that these books are selling like hotcakes please be aware before giving the book to your kid or as a gift.
    Parents please be on guard and there is no such thing as just “one pill” when it comes to illegally taking a controlled substance.

    Lakewood HS Athletes to get “Dose of Reality” from College Recruiting Expert

    John Craddox, athletic director at Lakewood High School, is hosting an event Monday, May 7, 2012, for the school’s student-athletes and their parents, who will get a strong dose of reality about the world of college recruiting. In an eye-opening presentation, national keynote speaker Jack Renkens will share with the audience the lessons he’s learned during many years as a high school and college coach, athletic director and parent of a high school athlete.

    One fact athletes and their parents may not want to hear: less than one percent of all student-athletes will play their sport at a Division I school. On the other hand, a wealth of opportunities is available for student-athletes at colleges and universities below that level.

    In his 16th year as an athletic/motivational speaker, Renkens has three key messages for the audience:

    You don’t get to pick the school. The school picks you

    A college coach can’t recruit you if he or she doesn’t know who you are. You need to market yourself

    Don’t get hung up on the term “athletic scholarship.” Focus on “funding,” which is made up of academic money, merit dollars, grants, endowments and achievement funds.

    Renkens’ presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the school’s lecture room. It is free and open to the public.

    Attention Park Avenue Parents:
    This evening (Monday, February 20) I was stopped at the intersection of Park & Seventh at 5:10 pm. A bus pulled over and some sweet little boys got off. One of them was bouncing a large ball. I shudder to think what might have happened had his ball rolled under the bus.

    Parents: please teach your children about bus safety.
    If you have children on this bus, please talk to the other parents in case they don’t read the Scoop. I feel it is very important to alert the parents of this boy!

    Bus companies (this was a heimishe company): your driver should alert the children to how dangerous this could be.

    Isn’t it about time we tried to be pro-active instead of re-active????

    Credit Error? It Pays to Be on V.I.P. List

    The New York Times reported that the three largest credit reporting agencies have a two tier system for investigating and resolving consumers’ claims of mistakes on their credit reports. Consumers on an A list “get special help from workers in the United States in fixing mistakes on their credit reports.” Everyone else has their claims “electronically ferried to a subcontractor overseas, where a worker spends, on average, about two minutes figuring out the gist of the matter.” …….
