November 11, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • Page 27 Mahwah Minutes Library presents Neil Simon play The Mahwah Public Library will present Neil Simon’s “The Good Doctor” a comedy with music by the M&M Acting Company, on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. Neil Simon, Broadway’s master of comedy, deftly weaves together a parody of the life and works of Anton Chekhov into a comedic, laugh-out-loud masterpiece, replete with conniving con artists, sly seducers, and ridiculous slapstick. Using the writer as the guide and narrator, Simon deftly adapts a group of Chekhov’s early stories into sketches, some farcical, some wistful and sentimental, exploring the foibles of life in any time. The production is directed by Ray Eckerle and features cast members Janice Fay Hanges, Stewart Hanges, Jean Kadela, Peter Lillo, and Kevin Vislocky. “The Good Doctor” is free. No tickets are necessary. Seats are on a “first come” basis. The library is located at 100 Ridge Road. Classic rock concert set On Nov. 22 at 2 p.m., The Kootz will perform classic rock and roll of the 1960s and 1970s, including music from the Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Steve Winwood, Bob Dylan, the Byrds, Rolling Stones, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. The program will be presented at the Mahwah Public Library, 100 Ridge Road. Originally known as The OMJ (Old Man Jam), this band played occasionally around northern New Jersey at street fairs and clubs for several years. The Kootz now appear in and around the Garden State and New York, two to four nights a week, both as a full electric band, and as an acoustic version.

Councilman Allan Kidd said he felt putting retail in this location would be convenient for the people who live in the garden apartments on Franklin Turnpike who would be able to walk to the shopping center. He also said a retail use would be a higher value to the town than a warehouse or industrial use. Councilwoman Lisa DiGiulio asked Burgis to consider creating a new general retail zone for the site so that some of the uses that would be permitted under the existing zones would not be allowed at this site. “If the property was sold,” DiGiulio explained, “somebody else could put something in there that we don’t want.” Community Blood Services 970 Linwood Avenue, West Paramus, NJ 07652 It’s About Life!
