CENTRAL JERSEY: Middlesex County to handle drug charges filed against Sheridan son

The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office is going to handle drug charges filed against Matthew Sheridan, the 41-year-old son of the late John and Joyce Sheridan, according to a press release issued May 4 by the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office.

The younger Mr. Sheridan, who lived with his parents at 49 Meadow Drive in Montgomery Township, was arrested on cocaine charges Sept. 28, 2014, which is the same day that his parents died. He allegedly had cocaine and drug paraphernalia in his car.

The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office was handling the drug case, but the request to transfer the case was made to eliminate any conflict or appearance of conflict due to the potential civil litigation by the Sheridan family against the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office, according to the May 4 press release.

    If I were writing these essays for a high school class, chances are, I would get a failing grade. That’s because one rule trumps all the others in most essays assigned in English classes: do not use the pronoun “I.” Yet this one little letter is so extremely important to writers that to banish it dehumanizes the English class and blocks the opportunity for both self-discovery and self-expression.



Happy Birthday Orson
Classic films at the Garden Theatre
ORSON Welles was born on May 6, 1915, and in honor of his 100th birthday, the Princeton Garden Theatre is presenting a tribute to his filmmaking talents, May 6 through June 3.

   ”Orson Welles was a man of many talents — actor, director, writer and producer. He is remembered for groundbreaking work in not only film, but theater and radio as well,” says John Toner, executive director of the Princeton Garden Theatre. “The first film he directed, 1941’s ‘Citizen Kane,’ is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.”

   A talented stage magician and noted Shakespearean actor, Welles was active in Hollywood for more than three decades. In 1971, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented him with an honorary award “For superlative artistry and versatility in the creation of motion pictures.”
