LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thank you to Cub Pack

(Nov. 18, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

The Rutherford Public Library trustees and I extend our thanks to Cub Master Rick Inguanti, the boys in Cub Pack 168, their parents and siblings for their work at the library on Saturday, Oct. 30.

The energetic group conducted a thorough fall cleanup of the library grounds as a community service project. The Cub Scouts also planted 60 daffodil bulbs, which will add colorful beauty to the library gardens for the spring season. The efforts of all participants are appreciated.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Granell, McClintock say thank you to supporters

(Nov. 18, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

We would like to thank the voters of North Arlington for their support during our campaign for borough council.

Running for office is a difficult task that asks so much of your time and energy. At the same time the process is an education in democracy, people, politics and public policy.

While we were not successful, we believe offering voters a contrasting point-of-view on the issues facing North Arlington is just as important as victory or defeat.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Councilmen make pledge

(Nov. 18, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

We would like to thank all of those who worked on our behalf during the recent re-election for North Arlington Borough Council and express our sincere gratitude to the voters for coming out to support us at the polls.

We also want to congratulate Mayor Peter Massa on his reelection. As we pledged in our campaign literature we will work to create an atmosphere where everyone can work together for a better community.

The borough faces many critical challenges in the year ahead. We look forward to meeting them and working to change things in North Arlington for the better.

It is a privilege to serve in public office. We pledge to work hard, to listen to the people we represent and to give them straight talk in return.

Richard Hughes / Joseph Bianchi / North Arlington Councilmen

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Sheridan sounds off

(Nov. 18, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

I want to thank 278 voters from District 1 in Lyndhurst who went to the polls Nov. 2 and voted. We now have a change in Bergen County government. The number of registered voters in Lyndhurst is approximately 12,000. Total votes cast was 4,273. I hope this sends a message to Lyndhurst voters for a change here in 2012.

OpinionEDITORIAL: Let's hope for the best

(Nov. 18, 2010) — With the election now over and candidates getting ready to become public officials, it’s time for the annual post-mortem.

In local races in South Bergen, not much changed. All of the incumbents won in North Arlington, East Rutherford and Carlstadt. Wood-Ridge and Rutherford saw newcomers fill open slots on their governing bodies.

Only Wallington, where Celina Urbankowski claimed victory, did a challenger actually overcome an incumbent (that incumbent being Robert Ryaby).

OpinionTHE VIEW FROM HERE: After elections — now what?

By Craig Ruvere / Columnist

(Nov. 18, 2010) — With the conclusion of the 2010 elections, we all can breathe a sigh of relief. No more will we return home to find our mailboxes jam-packed with propaganda no one reads and only adds to the waste in our environment. We will no longer have to sit through another mellow-dramatic political commercial whose only purpose seems to be defacing the other candidate. And finally, front lawns and roadways will cease to be littered with flimsy signs protruding from the ground like tombstones in a cemetery.

OpinionEDITORIAL: The value of voting

(Oct. 28, 2010) — Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 2. If you’re reading this editorial then there is a good chance you will head to the polls and cast a vote for your favorite candidate. Those who read newspapers or educate themselves on the candidates typically are the ones who exercise their right to vote most vigorously.

But, sadly, many will not head to the polls this Election Day. Many of these people are your friends, classmates and family members. Why is this the case?

OpinionTHE LEADERS OF THE WEEK: Haunted house winners

(Oct. 28, 2010) — The Leader for three years now has journeyed to the scariest haunted houses in the South Bergen area and judged the costumes, lawn displays, ghosts, goblins, ghouls and skeletons of those who dress up their house for Halloween. If you’re looking for something to do this Halloween, head to these houses to take a look at the elaborate portraits of terror. Each of the contestants is different (note: not all are kid-friendly). Thanks again to all the contestants for making this year one of the scariest.

Have someone you’d like to nominate? E-mail The Leader at JSoltes@LeaderNewspapers.net.

OpinionTHE VIEW FROM HERE: Prioritizing life’s to-do list

By Craig Ruvere / Columnist

(Oct. 28, 2010) — I often meet up with a friend of mine on Wednesday nights, for coffee and conversation at a small café in a local bookstore.

The other night, while she stood at the counter ordering something caffeinated to drink and a sweet-treat to munch on, I was busy laying claim on a table for two. With everyone searching for a comfortable place to drink their coffee and flip through a book they have no intention of buying, available tables are often hard to find.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fecanin is part of the problem

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

We wish to continue to express our commitment to the residents of Rutherford and discuss the issues that are relevant to the future of our borough. Our opponents and their surrogates have decided to discuss anything but the issues. One could not find that hard to understand considering that George Fecanin has always been part of the problem rather than part of the solution. While we have been discussing the reform that is needed in borough hall, Fecanin and Jack Boyle have been burning the midnight oil repackaging themselves into a new improved version of the same old novel. That book, as residents know, should be titled, “McPherson and Friends: How to bankrupt your town in just eight short years.”

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Spay and neuter your pets

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Thank you for calling attention to the problem of companion animals being abandoned in the Meadowlands. All animal shelters are underfunded and understaffed, but charging fees actually causes animal abandonment, the very problem that shelters were established to resolve. If someone no longer can or wants to care for their cat or dog, chances are high that they won’t pay a fee to do the right thing and bring their animals to a shelter.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: America was once considered ‘One Nation Under God’

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

What was once “One Nation Under God” is crumbling at its base because we have lost our foundation. The United States is a Christian nation, as history has proven, yet many are continually reproving this common truth.

According to the First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: I endorse Donovan

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

In this election on Nov. 2 for Bergen County executive, I am voting for our friend, neighbor and outstanding public servant, Republican Kathleen A. Donovan. With 30 years of experience in the political arena, I have been casting my ballot exclusively for Democrats in the last 22 of those years. But sometimes party loyalty and partisan politics ask too much. This year it’s time to make a change in Bergen County.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote for the Massa team

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

The voters of North Arlington have a clear and obvious choice as to who has raised property taxes and who hasn’t come Tuesday, Nov. 2.

The Massa team opposes this year’s 15-percent property tax hike and the outright mismanagement of this community for the last 11 months.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote for Donovan

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

For years now, Bergen County taxpayers have had to watch as the county budget ballooned, the patronage jobs increased exponentially and debt exploded. This election, voters will have the most influence over the issues that directly affect their wallet and their quality of life. By electing Kathe Donovan to serve as county executive, the people of South Bergen will finally have an effective, efficient servant-leader in Hackensack.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: We need Hennessey and McAllister

(Oct. 28, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Do we the residents of Rutherford want to go backward to the days of George Fecanin or move forward? How many remember the 18-percent increase in our taxes in one year under the last Democratic administration?

The current administration has made progress reducing costs of salaries, number of borough employees, etc. We commend them for their efforts. But they have a long way to go to bring Rutherford back to 2001.
