Mark Twain visits the library The Mahwah Public Library presents “Mark Twain’s Last Stand” with Alan Kitty as Mark Twain on Sunday April 26 at 2 p.m. Twain is better known for his books, essays, and humorous storytelling than for his riotous and calamitous real-life adventures. Perhaps America’s first superstar as a writer and lecturer, Twain’s influence was global. Despite this, his business ventures resulted in one catastrophe after another. Kitty’s impersonation explores the nearly inexhaustible parallels between his century and ours. Twain had something of interest to say about nearly any topic of the day. “Mark Twain’s Last Stand” is free. No tickets are necessary. Latecomers will be seated during any appropriate breaks. The Mahwah Public Library is located at 100 Ridge Road. Call (201) 529-READ.

Apprenticeships (continued from page 13) and plumbers,” said Alan Concha, the school’s vice president and director. Students in the electrical apprenticeship program are taught the theory and skills necessary to install and maintain electrical devices and wiring in homes, factories, offices and other structures. The HoHoKus School of Trade provides complete hands-on workstations that allow students to learn electrical theory and procedures firsthand. Completion of this program is equal to a one-year, on-thejob apprenticeship experience. “The students do not need to have electrical backgrounds to be successful,” said Joe Pete, an electrical and professional engineer, certified energy practitioner and instructor for the electrical apprenticeship program. “More importantly, the program is endorsed at the highest levels providing fabulous opportunities for our graduates.” The fully accredited plumbing, heating, and pipefitting technology program at the HoHoKus School of Trades prepares students for a career in both residential and light commercial settings. Students are trained to install, repair and troubleshoot equipment. Classroom instruction includes blueprint reading, joining and soldering, and safety and building code procedures. Upon completion, students earn the equivalent of one year of on-the-job apprenticeship experience and are prepared to accept positions as an apprentice plumber or plumber’s assistant. According to the nonprofit agency, Jobs for the Future, most building-related industries are having trouble finding reliable workers with the skills they require. More than 20,000 job openings with opportunities for advancement are expected each year. Asked who makes a good plumber, Ralph Wetzel, first vice president of the NJPHCC, said, “Someone who enjoys working with their hands, is able to conceptualize the flow of liquids, as well as read and follow required codes. “HoHoKus graduates of the plumbing apprenticeship program will always be in demand,” Wetzel added. Owned and operated by Eastwick Education, Eastwick College and the HoHoKus Schools are among the leading career colleges in the tri-state area. In addition to HoHoKus School of Trade in Paterson, Eastwick Education owns Eastwick College in Ramsey, HoHoKus-RETS in Nutley, HoHoKus Hackensack, and HoHoKus at Bergen Regional Medical Center in Paramus. “HoHoKus School of Trade and Technical Sciences offers programs that are on the edge of technology, providing our graduates with skills for the modern job market,” said Eastwick. “In addition, we consistently maintain one of the highest graduate job-placement rates in the nation.” For more information, visit the HoHoKus School of Trade and Technical Sciences, at 634 Market Street in Paterson, call (800) 646-WELD, or visit online at www.eastwick.edu. ������ �� �������� � Proceeds to benefit the Waldwick Ambulance Corps, Waldwick Community Alliance and town beautification projects. �������� SPONSORS: 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk April 26, 2009 5K Race: 9:00 a.m. 1 Mile Fun Walk: 9:30 a.m. Date: Location: Registration: Race Time: Course: 5K Entry Fees: Waldwick High School Track & Field 7:30 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. at the Waldwick High School Track Wyckoff Avenue & Hopper Avenue Opening Ceremonies: 8:30 a.m. DOOR PRIZES, Goody bags, post race refreshments Rain or shine.
