I Remember Dad: A Summertime Saturday Afternoon, in 1950, at the A&P

By Richard Mabey Jr.

In June of 1950, my Mom began working in the Bakery Department at the A&P Grocery Store in Boonton. Mom was all of 17 years old and had just completed her junior year at Boonton High School. Mom was an apprentice baker. Back then the A&P was noted for its fresh baked bread and pastries. I hold a grand gratitude to whoever was my Mom’s boss and taught Mom how to bake, oh so well. For my Mom baked homemade biscuits and bread, pretty much every day of the week, when I was a boy growing up in Old Lincoln Park.

OPINION: Expanding the Child Tax Credit Ignores Historical Precedent

BY VERONIQUE DE RUGY

Attention readers: Mark Shields is off this week. Please enjoy the following column by Veronique de Rugy.

marketing is everything in politics. It explains why a tax credit that benefits 90% of American families with kids — some of them with income higher than $400,000 — is marketed as an anti-poverty measure. But in politics, that marketing is often an illusion that hides the hard consequences of a preferred policy.

With the latest COVID-19 relief package, Congress expanded the child tax credit, increasing the maximum amount a taxpayer could claim from $2,000 per child to $3,000 for those aged 6 to 17 and to $3,600 under age 6.

OPINION: Victory for the Santorum Squashers

From the right

BY TIM GRAHAM

Rick Santorum’s gig as a CNN contributor came to an abrupt halt on May 22. Leftists on Twitter finally found a pretext for their crusade to rid CNN of this turbulent conservative. The former senator suggested in an April 23 speech that America’s founding documents didn’t draw on Native American culture.

The final straw was a designated apology tour of sorts on Chris Cuomo’s show on May 3. Santorum explained that he didn’t mean to disparage the Native Americans, but nothing was going to stop the steamroller.
