More Than $560K Raised at Share NJ 5K
The Caldewells Patch - over 4 years
Some ran to honor those they lost. Others ran to give thanks for a second chance at life. Nearly 5,000 people, united by their support for organ and tissue donation, gathered Sunday for the Second Annual Share NJ 5K Race to Save Lives through Organ & Tissue Donation. The event, with record turnout, raised more than $560,000 to provide education, outreach and family support. Check out photos from the event. More than 245 teams participated, most connected through the story of an organ donor or recipient—or someone on the waiting list.  “I am here today because there are no words to thank the person who saved my life and allowed me to continue to be a teacher, a mom, a wife and a friend,” said Maria Feeney, a 39-year-old heart recipient from Morris Plains whose team was called 'Heart & Soul.' “The only obligation to be on my team was to be a registered organ donor. We need to raise awareness.” The number of participants increased 35 percent from last year's 5K. ...

Sweet Miracles at Sweet Indulgences
New Milford Patch - almost 5 years
Before he reached the age of 17, New Milford's Bryan Mueller had four brushes with death. So, what's the story behind this co-owner of Dumont's Sweet Indulgences Dessert Shoppe and Food Network Cupcake Wars contestant?   Mueller was born with a life-threatening kidney disease, Posterior Urethal Valves, a congenital condition that affects only boys. Before he reached the age of 18, Bryan underwent nine surgeries and nearly died four times.  On February 4, 2005, when Mueller was 17, he received a kidney transplant from a 24-year old man who was killed in a car accident. For the first time in his short life, he is healthy.  When Mueller and Leigh Mulvihill, also a New Milford resident, joined forces at St. Joseph University's Haub School of Business in Philadelphia, they wasted no time forming a partnership. Inspired by Mueller's medical triumph, together they established the non-profit Donate Perspective as a way of helping others in need. Donate Perspective was aimed at their g ...

Jack Nicholson Movies: Rating The Actor's Best And Worst Films
Deadline Hollywood - almost 5 years
What's Jack Nicholson's secret? Maybe it's the eyebrows, hovering like ironic quotation marks over every line reading. Maybe it's the hooded eyes, which hold the threat of danger or the promise of joviality -- you're never sure which. Same with that sharklike grin. Or maybe it's the voice, which has evolved over the years from a thin sneer to a deep rumble, but is always precisely calibrated to provoke a reaction. Put them all together, and they say: "I am a man to be reckoned with. Ignore me at your peril." Nicholson, who turns 75 on April 22, is often criticized for relying on his bag of tricks, for just showing up and doing Jack Nicholson (though indeed, he often seems to have been hired precisely for that purpose). But he's also capable of burrowing deep into a character, finding his wounded heart, and revealing the ugly truth without fear or vanity. Moviegoers don't always love the subtler Nicholson as much as the broader-played rabble rouser, but both have made him an instituti ...
