WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT DRIVING CAN GET YOU KILLED: An Exposé of phony traffic laws and dangerous driving habits! - Author: Al Cinamon '55 - Available June 2, 2016 at Amazon.com in Kindle and Paperback. Enter "Cinamon" or the title in Amazon's search box.
 photo EXPOSED Alcin_zpsxiuysjbh.jpg
"The State would like everyone to believe that it cares about your safety. It does not! But, of course, it can't be admitted, so laws are enacted that make you think they care about your safety. In reality, the current crop of laws put you at risk. People need to understand that crashing is a business and the State makes a lot of money from all the transactions that flow from a crash. It's an industry that produces vast amounts of revenue for a lot of people including the State in the form of sales and income taxes. Not only will the hypocrisy be exposed, but suggestions will be offered to help you minimize the risk of crashing." Mazol Tov to Al Cinamon! A well-deserved acknowledgment for his years of service and infinite knowledge of the industry.

Photobucket

Courtesy of UHC: Volunteer your time. Giving back to your community can be very rewarding. In one recent study, a whopping 94% of people reported that volunteering lifted their mood. And that's not all. More than three-quarters also said that volunteering made them feel healthier overall. So when you help others, you just might help yourself too.

Are you ready, willing and able to give yourself to a good cause? Tell me about your experience and skills and I'll tell you how we can best apply them to the TJHS Class of '61 and our goals. A rewarding volunteer job may be in your immediate future. Email TJHS1961@aol.com

Stu Rothstein is ready to mail a membership application to your home. Please contact him at sturothstein64@yahoo.com - provide your name (ladies, please include your maiden and married names), complete address, phone number and month/year of graduation.
