yogikids.jpgMontclair’s resident legend Yogi Berra appeared with fifth-grade students from Hillside and Northeast Schools on Tuesday to film a public-service announcement for the College Board on the importance of writing. The 30-second commercial was filmed at the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center and will air during Big East Conference basketball telecasts. Yogi, who has a way of words like few others, has authored a couple of New York Times bestsellers and his granddaughter Lindsay is a senior writer for ESPN magazine.

    Dear Kids, we all love Yogi, but please don’t try to emulate his prose style.

And we can get this project completed in time for Montclair's sesquicentennial when we can stick a fork into historic preservation as a public policy.
