APRIL - MAY 2018


Rhonda Malkin

By Graham McCarty

If you've had the good fortune of passing Rhonda Malkin in the halls here at Ripley-Grier, you'd be forgiven for thinking you've seen her somewhere else before. Perhaps you caught her dancing up a storm with Matthew Broderick in the film version of The Producers, performing with Robin Williams at The Academy Awards, or jamming with Panic! At the Disco at the VMAs. And if you happen to be President Obama or First Lady Michelle, you even saw her dance in the East Wing of the White House. These are just a few of the notable performances from Rhonda's impressive career...

Yesterday nine of our family members went to a Yankees' home game against the Orioles (We lost in the 12th inning). We had to leave early because we were freezing cold and had to head home. What a trying time this is concerning the weather conditions for North-Easterners, unless you are a total 'Winter-sports person' or a 'Snowbird'...

Happy Spring!? It's still cold. I usually enjoy the cooler temperatures, but it's time for some warm weather...
