The Verona and Cedar Grove guide to Winter Storm information.
[Last Updated: Feb. 8, 5:20 p.m.] Residents are getting ready to hunker down to wait out the snow after Essex County declared a state of emergency.

With the new school year almost upon us, help get your kids’ brains working again with this fun, free daily email newsletter.
With back-to-school stresses piling up, Laura Overdeck wants to let children and parents in on a little secret: math can be fun. Really. Overdeck is on a mission to change the way Americans think about math — especially given that math anxiety has been tracked in kids as young as age 5. This is what inspired her to create Bedtime Math, a nonprofit that sends out a daily email with a math problem tailored to “wee ones,” little and big kids. Bedtime Math has been very successful in both Verona and Cedar Grove. “Families signed up for the program and got calendar of summer months and stars. They can go online and have math problem delivered every day,” said Cedar Grove Youth Services Librarian Natalie Cheetham. “They put a star on the …
