|Citizens Vow to Fight Against Closure of
Mother's Day Gestures of Love and Thanks Should Be Extended Throughout the
Year...Each year in the United States we celebrate
Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May, a day on which we pay tribute to those women who shape our lives in so many
ways - as nurturer, teacher, friend, role model and confidante
- and influence us perhaps more than anyone else in who we become as we mature.
Is a Great Instrument of Compassion...Why is Muhlenberg Hospital closing? The simple answer is that too few patients are paying their bills. For years, Muhlenberg has been providing health care to those that
don't (and/or can't) pay. The state has been subsidizing the hospital in an attempt to cover the shortfall. The amount of non-paying customers has grown. Coupled with that, the state is now broke.

Good, Bad and Ugly: From '50s to Present
Leaders Must Learn To 'Lead from the Side'
Reform Thought: Some people in the State of New Jersey believe they are entitled to free health
care, and that they can go to hospitals without paying. Some of these individuals
include illegal aliens. Hospitals are closing and going bankrupt. We request that
all state leaders and the Governor to issue a clear statement as to what the
entitlements are, and who is to pay for entitlements that may exist.
