National anniversaries are very difficult to resist fo media outlets. These stories are evergreen, but in documenting the 10th anniversary of those horrific Sept. 11 attacks, there must be a fine line observed between commemoration and perceived exploitation. Mindful of this possible misinterpretation, City Island Images wishes to focus our special coverage of this anniversary on issues like how much our readers can share, and how such a solemn occasion should be viewed as a specially sensitive opportunity.

As we approach Labor Day, let us spend time with our families and make time for ourselves. But, Labor Day is really about recognizing working men and women and the contribution they have made to our country. They have been strengthened by unions that have long fought for worker rights. With both unemployment and under-employment too prevalent today, we should use this weekend to focus on how we can create more and better jobs!
The Bronx has once again fallen victim to a wave of disturbing gun violence. In just the 47th Precinct, our borough saw eight separate shooting incidents, and three small children—a 13 year old girl two boys, ages 11 and 10—are among those affected by these senseless acts, both in the 47th Precinct and elsewhere in our borough.
