Having switched to a three-times-a-week format, sometimes writers who produce columns more frequently get backlogged, but never fear we'll run all their stories for your edification and reading pleasure. In this issue, for example, Ira Sharkansky and Donald H. Harrison have three stories each.
We dedicate this issue with happy birthday wishes and a hearty mazal tov to Noah Sutton-Smolin, who became a bar mitzvah on Saturday. It also is dedicated to Mitchell J. Freedman, president of Ner Tamid Synagogue, with happy August 2 birthday wishes.
