Hi, I just wanted to let HL know that Desiderio's is closed. Sorry if I missed this on the forum. My family and I found Desidero's on HL and was our favorite pizza place. We just didn't go there all too often as it is a bit of a drive from where we live. Last year Desiderio's told me they put lights outside to let people know that they were still there after A&P closed and left the strip mall lifeless. If anyone is making delicious brick oven pizzas like then please let me know. :(

Dr. Hennie

Can anyone share experiences with Dr Hennie, the family doctor at the midwives practice? I'm looking for someone who will take a holistic approach, and her bio looks impressive.

Gel-One Knee Injection

My husband has been having trouble with his knee for a few months. At first it was suspected to be a meniscus tear and he was given a cortisone shot. When that didn't help he was sent for an MRI. The MRI revealed that he has a severe loss of cartilage behind his knee. Ortho suggested this Gel-One injection. Of course we have read up about the particulars of it online, but I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with these type of injections? Were they helpful or not?

Street lamp light bulbs out along Main Street and Route 46

I was surprised to see that almost one-third of all of our street lamps along Main Street and Route 46 are not lighting up at night time. Is there a reason why they are not being maintained, or did no one else notice?

Trucks on Rt80

A Hackettstown couple was killed yesterday on Rt80 by a dump truck that blew a tire and swerved into them. I travel rt80 everyday and can't help but notice that most truckers drive like complete a-holes. Some people will argue that truckers are professional drivers. I disagree for truckers in this area. I see them on the phone and swerving all over the place. I also think that state police should be cracking down on inspections on these rigs. Some I see clearly with bald tires and fenders being held on with zip ties. It's really pretty bad. What are... More
