Abbott and Costello To Meet The Toga Chip Guy
In August we're spotlighting a new section to the newsletter called, The Spotlight Is On You!
If you would like to be our first "Spotlight," we'd run a photo of you, you can write up a short paragraph or two about what you do, anything you want to let our worldwide subscribers know about you (love the potato chip historian!). We'll add in your web site, anything you want to
The deadline for the August issue would be mid-July.
Let me know if you'd be interested. I checked out your web site and instantly thought, "This is too perfect!"
Enjoy the opening theme to the Abbott and Costello Show
Dear Principal Feeley and Arthur:
It is my great honor and distinct privilege to nominate the late Joseph Patrick Curry for enshrinement into the Arthur L. Johnson High School ("ALJ") Hall of Fame ("HOF"). At the age of 19, Joseph lost his life attempting to rescue a 13-year old who was drowning in the Rahway River.
I have mailed you each hard copy of the attached. Please acknowledge receipt of this e-mail including the attachment.

Thank you for submitting the TAPinto Clark Hometown Heroes Submission Form! We are interested in choosing to write a story about Joseph Curry, and we would like to request a little bit more information from you:
- Do you know when (month/year) the Township dedicated “Curry Field” in Curry’s honor?
- I have reviewed the newspaper clippings you sent to my editor Elizabeth, along with your application/statement to induct Curry into the ALJ Hall of Fame and the statement provided by Curtis Helfrich. We are unsure where two of the clippings came from, specifically those titled “Drowning feared in rescue attempt” and “PBA Honoring 10 acts of heroism.” Do you recall which newspaper these two came from, and if so please let us know.
- We also will need picture(s) to include in the article. If you have a picture of Curry himself and/or a picture of the park, those would both be very helpful.
Thanks again for sharing this story, and I look forward to being able to share it with our readers.
