Sparta Education Foundation

The recently formed Sparta Education Association would like you to read the press release and consider being a volunteer. Press Release : Pledge Form: Volunteer Form

USS Houston

This note comes from Clay Ramsey of ASIATICFLEET.com. Jim Hornfischer's new book "SHIP OF GHOSTS" is featured in an exceprt called "the street fight in the sunda strait" in this month's issue of Naval History magazine. Also, in that same issue, the book "Shattered Sword" by Jon Parshall and Tony Tully, has been added to their "bookshelf" for the year 2006. This means, in
essence, they regard it as a "must-read" book. So, if you don't already subscribe, go to a bookstore and get a copy of this month's Naval History! These books are also supported by the DVD "LAST STAND OF USS HOUSTON" by Vic Campbell.

Spooked in New Jersey

Armond, our reporter on the scene, did this video for a media production class for extra credit. With no help, he took a school camera and visted the site of a local Haunted House. The story behind it involves a child molester, a murder and lots of scary feelings. We hope you enjoy Armond's tour. He was quite shaken up from the experience. The house is in Sussex County. He got full credit for this one-man production effort. His assigment was to shoot so there would be no editing required. He came close! You can learn more about making video for broadast at the Sussex County Community College. Contact Tony Selimo for information. SCCC 973

Books To Read

I recommend these! I read them and learned a LOT!
"Cotton (TheBiography of A Revolutionary Fiber)" by Yafra. A great insight into the world economy and conflict over time as it relates to the fiber itself.
"Mayflower A Story of Courage, Community, and War" by Philbrik
"Benjamin Franklin: An American Life" by Isaacson - an excellent follow up to "JohnAdams by McCullough" and "1776" also by McCullough
"Johanna" .. by Jennifer Brune. A Book by a local Sussex County new author . Interesting story-line takes a young reader into several known books of the past to make sure one of the (usually minor) characters deos something that will "move the story along" ... or else the book will fail.
"Playing For Time" by Alford: an excellent overview of the last days of the Asiatic Fleet in WWII as it was thrust against the IJN in a desperate attempt to stall the Japanese. I met Wicke Aflord (Capt. USN, Ret) at the Asiatic Fleet Reunion in Asheville in April.

Fall View over The Delaware River

It is a great view this time of year from a sail plane over the Delaware River. This historic valley is gorgeous this time of year! The Glider Port is in Blairstown. The color in October is amazing.
