The great Western theme park in Northern New Jersey, Wild West City, is still going strong. The famous skits, from Jesse James to Skeeter Ford (with a female Skeeter who is the niece of the original Skeeter) are still going strong. School trips come in May and day camps all summer. The educational programs let kids know that by 1880 1/3 of the cowboys were black and abou 1/3 Hispanic. We have a black marshal, which is exciting to kids from the inner city who rarely see someone who looks like them as the man in charge. We also have a cowgirl and an occasional female sheriff (that would be me!). Except for Dodge City, we are the last of the 1950s Western Parks since the closing of Carson City in the Catskills two years ago. We now feature Pony Bob Ervin and his son, C.D.,  in the art of the bullwhips. Owner and board president Mike Stabile still does the "dancing ropes." We also put on special events, craft fairs for the moms, Abe Lincoln Day for his 200th birthday, a jubilee for the 140th anniversary of Wyoming granting women the vote, and book signings of books on the west. This year we featured Charley's Choice, the story of Charley Parkhurst, a woman who lived as a man for a chance to be a stage driver. Next year is Annie Oakley's 150th birthday on Aug. 11, so just wait!

What do the U.S. Government and British Petroleum have in common?  Well, aside from bureaucratic B.S. and a whole lot more money than we could ever dream of… they also seem to have a complete lack of concern for the sanctity of life. ...
