Dear Readers,

Nataly Davis and I had a personal dispute. I want to apologize for anything I may have said to her in public or on the phone that offended her. I will not call or write to her or visit her again. I hope she will lead a happy life.

A Big Mitzvah

Anita (Mankoff) and Taras Denis of Spokane, Washing ton have a great reason to be very proud grandparents!

Anita and Taras used to live in New York. Jeremy sure has touched many people's hearts!
