Grab your business suit and briefcase, because It's trial time in New Jersey. In this episode, Teresa G. deals with her trial on charges of mortgage fraud. Prior to the trial, we see her praying for God's protection. After the trial, her attorney makes a statement on behalf of her that she pleads guilty. There are more technical issues at hand with the trial, but it's too complicated. Dina gathers the girls to help her plan an event for her charity, Project Ladybug, that raises money for children with cancer.

Regarding letter writer D.B. Herman's claim that President Obama was "nowhere near" the disaster area after Hurricane Sandy, Is it possible he did not see the president with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie inspecting the destruction both from the air and on the ground ("Obama's disastrous storm response overlooked," Nov. 16)? President Bush viewed the mess from Hurricane Katrina from the comfort of Air Force One. Perhaps he joins the group of Republicans who chastised Chris Christie for praising the president for his quick response to and commitment to helping the governor and the state of New Jersey.

My sister and I recently spent five days at Ocean City, New Jersey. In early childhood summers, thanks to our grandparents, we spent months there. As we grew older, they took us traveling. Beach months dwindled to weeks, then days. The imprint of those early years is strong. In summer, what I now enjoy most is what I enjoyed in childhood: learning to ride a two-wheel bike, riding on the boardwalk and flat beach sidewalks, walking down the street to the beach and swimming in the ocean, eating fresh fruit and vegetables for dinner, eating ice cream later, playing cards and board games, having my first library card and spending time at the library, riding the rides and meeting up with friends.
