“He didn’t even stop.” These words made their way into every conversation my family and I had when we first learned my aunt, Rosalie Apadula Gugliotta, was struck in a hit-and-run this past summer.

It’s the day before New Year’s Eve, a day when many may ponder the question: Is there a cure for a hangover? I’ve heard of a few remedies. “Best to try a little bit of the dog that bit you last night.” (This didn’t strike me as a good idea.) “Take some anti-inflammatory (aspirin) before going to bed.” (Could pose stomach problems to those hoping to alleviate the next day’s pain.) “Drink plenty of tomato juice the following morning.” (Possibly, sounds good – if you like tomato juice.)
Over the years, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with New Year’s Eve.

I was ecstatic when I heard that a leader of Martina White’s caliber was elected as the new state representative for the 170th district.
Oh nuts! It’s the day of the party, and you just remembered that you promised to bring an appetizer. Do you go nuts? Absolutely not. When it’s crunch time, there’s nuttin’ to it. Just make a bowl of sweet and spicy, sweet or spicy nuts.
December is a wonderful, slightly crazy month. Two words – “holiday season” – explain both the wonder and the craziness.
Back to our roots
Martina White was the first new Philadelphia Republican elected to the state legislature in the last 25 years. She represents District 170 with a serious demand for change.
