Joe ‘The Scoop’ Hair is a bit under the weather we’re told.

We hope you are back on your feet real soon. We miss your news clippings service and Aldi cookies. When you get home we’ll have a lot of catching up to do – your friends at the Bronx Times Reporter

War Writing Workshops

The spring session of The Craft of War Writing, a writing workshop at the Morris Park Library, began Saturday, March 10 and will continue on into the spring.

The group meets on many, but not all, Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The writing is geared toward veterans and war tales, said Jeremy Warneke, a workshop facilitator, but covers many different themes.

It is for both veterans and the general public. For more information, including specific meeting dates, call the Morris Park Library at (718) 931-0636.

You can also visit or email for details and registration.

The Morris Park branch is located at 985 Morris Park Avenue.
