  • When hearing fails, it becomes a family issue

    Our trek to the audiologist became an interesting venture. It revealed the tip of a huge iceberg called: “Can you hear me now?” Actually, “Are you listening, pretending or truly unable to understand my words?”

  • Inspiring others to run

    After talking about running to Joe Yalch, you’d probably be inspired to run 3 miles.

    At South Brunswick High School, at least 28 students are willing to do so as members of the Cougars’ cross-country team.

    Twenty-eight—that’s the size of some Class 1-A football teams.

    Yalch, in his first year as head cross-country coach, is an inspiration himself. He decided he wanted to run a marathon, and did so two years ago—after he trained rigorously.
