From a story in today's Trenton Times: Gov. Chris Christie ordered that flags be flown at half-staff on Thursday in honor of E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons "in special recognition of his contributions to the state, people, and culture of New Jersey."

In Memory of Rich Turner
Long-time English adjunct faculty member Rich Turner died on June 16. He had retired after the fall semester. Laura Knight says, "Rich was one of the most passionate, demanding, caring, concerned instructors I have had the pleasure to know. What his wife wrote in her email to tell of Rich's passing really sums him up: 'He is at peace – and probably giving God a hard time about some of those awkward sentences in the Bible.'"
