Welcome back letters

We just received our welcome letter for my daughter’s first year in Kindergarten at Hatchery Hill. Do they not find out their teachers until their first day of school? I assumed they would send their teacher’s name out prior to the first day.

In-home physical / occupational therapy?

I'm looking for a physical or occupational therapist that can come to my home to spend some time helping me get comfortable with crutches, especially on stairs. Insurance doesn't cover this, but I'm able to pay out of pocket. Hoping for sometime next week. Any recommendations? I live in Washington borough.

Thanks so much.

PA priests molestation

Here we go again. The Catholic Church has more pedofiles than anyone can imagine. These poor kids and and their famailies who have been effected and have had their lives ruined. When will the church be held accountable for this atrocity? It is unreal that these people for the most part are sent to other places and not to prison. If the common person did this they would be put in prison for life or sentenced to death. Can someone please enlighten me on why these people are protected ?

Strand Studios/Acting Lessons

Hi I wanted to see if anyone knew about the Strand Studios in Hackettstown. There is also the Hackettstown Center for the Arts owned by the same person Chris Lance. My daughter is thinking about taking acting lessons with him and I wanted to check to see if anyone knew anything about this business. Thank you in advance.

Ulcerative colitis

Somebody close to me has ulcerative colitis and I just want somebody to talk to who understands what I am going through.
I dont think people realize that when somebody has something like that it can affect family members too.

Pizza/Chinese etc. deliveries out to Port Murray?

Hey guys, we're moving out into Port Murray (right off of Main Street) and there doesn't seem to be any pizza parlors or other eateries in the vicinity.

Does anyone know of pizza parlors and Chinese restaurants (etc.) in Hackettstown or Mansfield that will deliver to this area? We're coming from Flanders and had all kinds of options there, so I got spoiled. LOL.

Sunday night is our order-out night and the one night I don't have to cook - and I ain't giving that up. :-)

Thanks for any help, folks!
