    If you've been to Watchung Reservation, chances are you've passed Richard Carroll. Having grown up working in the stables, the park was the Scotch Plains native's happy place for decades.  On Monday, April 18, Carroll made the park his final resting place. He chose to go on his own terms after a 12-year battle with cancer, his family tells Daily Voice. "The cancer beat my dad, physically and at the end mentally," Katrina Carroll said on a GoFundMe page that had raised more than $28,000 as of April 21. "My dad couldn’t fight anymore, and he ended his fight in his way." Carroll was from Edison and married his high school sweetheart Patricia, 47 years ago. Together they shared two kids, Katrina and Patrick. Carroll sold produce for more than 40 years, but his true passion was antiques. His house was full of them. In 2010, Carroll was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He endured countless treatments: Chemo, radiation and had two stem cell transplants and was in the midst of clinical trials at the time of his death.  He went into...

    When the history-making politician Ritchie Torres won his House seat in November, he told his mom, Debra Bosolet, “This moment belongs to you as much as it belongs to me, because I would not be here without your unconditional love.” On Sunday, when the 117th United States Congress convenes Torres will start his new job representing New York City’s 15th District—which includes the South Bronx, where he grew up. When he returned from his freshman orientation at the House of Representatives, he had dinner with his mom, his “hero.” She told him, “This is the first time I’ve had dinner with a congressman.” Torres said he was smiling as he recalled the moment to The Daily Beast in the mellifluous, even-toned way he speaks. It is the same tone he employed throughout our conversation, whether discussing politics or the extremely personal—the bullying he endured as a kid, growing up in poverty, contemplating suicide, the mental illness he has confronted, contracting the coronavirus, his disdain for “incompetent” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, his pride in being the first...

    Tyler Perry celebrated how he emerged from a working poor family to become a multimedia mogul, during his emotional acceptance speech after being honored with the Governors Award at the Emmys on Sunday. “When I was about 19 years old, I left home, and my grandmother, she gave me a quilt that she had made, and this quilt was something that I didn’t really care for, it had all these different colors, and these different patches in it, and I was quite embarrassed by it,” began Perry as he told his story. “I had no value in it at all,” he added. “When the dog got wet, I dried him off with it. When I needed to change the oil on the car, I laid it on the ground. I had no respect for this quilt.” Watch Below: “Many years later, as I was walking past one of those fancy antique stores that I could finally go in and shop, I saw in the window a quilt that looked just like the one that she had given me,” continued Perry....
    Former national security adviser John Bolton, who is being slammed from all sides over the memoir he wrote about his time in the White House, said in an interview Tuesday night he decided to come out about his experiences because he had taken his job hoping to be part of a conservative Republican administration, but "it didnt turn out that way." "The idea of making successful deals is something that any president diplomatically wants to try to do," Bolton told Fox News "Special Report" with Bret Baier. "The record here has been pretty inadequate in terms of those deals, despite the presidents assertion that that is what he does better than anyone else." But speaking as a "lifelong conservative Republican," Bolton said he wrote his book, "The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir," for everyone, but for conservatives most of all so they can "think about what the implications" would be for a second Trump term in office.  But that decision has not come without criticism, including from Fred Fleitz, his former chief of staff, who commented he did not...
