Top StoriesTowns take their time with budgets

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

LYNDHURST (Sept. 30, 2010) — A state-mandated budget deadline for municipalities — Friday, Sept. 24 —- has come and gone, and local municipalities failed to finalize their spending plans before time ran out.

Lyndhurst, Rutherford and North Arlington were among a handful of the state’s 566 municipalities to flirt with the finish line. On Friday, Sept. 17, there were 37 municipalities that had not finished their budgets, according to Lisa Ryan, spokeswoman for the New Jersey Division of Local Government Services, the agency that oversees the municipal budget process.

EntertainmentRutherford physician pens brand-new humor book

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

RUTHERFORD (Sept. 30, 2010) — “That Girl’s Not Right” is not a self-help book. There is no talk of clinical studies or medical jargon. Only one story takes place in a medical setting. In fact, what’s most interesting about the book, written by Rutherford physician Kathleen Wooton, is that it’s a complete departure from a profession she has dedicated so much of her life to — a move from the patient’s bed to the comedy arena.

Breaking NewsJane Fisher to leave Rutherford Public Library

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

RUTHERFORD (Sept. 30, 2010) — Jane Fisher, director of the Rutherford Public Library, will resign from the job she has held for six years. Her last day as Rutherford’s head librarian will be Thursday, Oct. 14.

“It’s bittersweet for me,” Fisher said of her decision to leave the Borough of Trees. But, an offer from the New York Public Library system was enough to draw her away. The new job, managing a network of 17 libraries in the Bronx, is a great opportunity, Fisher said.

OpinionTHE LEADER OF THE WEEK: Edward Cortright

(Sept. 30, 2010) — Last week, The Leader reported on the pending retirement of Rutherford’s chief financial officer, Edward Cortright (read more Page A7 of last week’s edition). Cortright is a gracious public servant who has served the borough for many years. He has seen Rutherford through many ups and downs and has always been an asset for explaining complex budgets in digestible terms. It’s always a bittersweet moment when a longtime public employee decides to say goodbye. We imagine there will be many people ready to shake Cortright’s hand for his years of dedication.

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

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: A response to ‘racist’ charges

(Sept. 30, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Maybe Vincent La Iacona, last week’s guest columnist, isn’t a racist. He certainly is wrong on a number of assertions that he calls facts, though. Looking at his lead alone, the complaints there did not result from the Obama administration’s agenda as he says. Rather, “high unemployment, stimulus spending and huge deficits and debt, big health-care program that increases health costs, big energy proposals, feeble foreign policy handling” is mostly a mixed bag of woes left over from the previous administration, plus questionable opinion.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thank you

(Sept. 30, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

The Woman’s Club of Rutherford would like to thank the Rutherford’s Boy Scout Troop 166 and its parents along with Scout Master David Mack for once again coming to the rescue of the clubwomen. All the tables and chairs in the main reception hall had to be removed so the floors could be refurbished. It is a daunting task that the women are not able to handle.

The Scouts not only graciously accepted the challenge but then offered to come back after the flooring dried to put them all back. The Woman’s Club is so very grateful to be part of such a caring community that they can reach out to and get this positive response.

Thank you all for nurturing this community spirit.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Bad ideas coming from borough hall

(Sept. 30, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

After last year’s special election and their recent letter to the editor, Mayor John Hipp protégées Todd Hennessey and Joseph McAllister are up to their old tricks again (convicted felon allegedly harassing the elderly anyone?).

Their methods will be even worse if they get elected. The abominable leadership of Hipp and company will continue while taxes rise, deficits balloon and services are cut.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Congress gone crazy

(Sept. 30, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

This is what’s in the “amnesty” bill currently working its way through Congress — “already a done deal” quoted from inside Congress halls. Visa/amnesty approval in 24 hours — regardless of whether the background check is finished or not; a “temporary visa” — but wait ... it can be renewed indefinitely; if they need an immigration lawyer — we’re paying for it; millions of our taxpayer monies will be sent to Mexico to improve their health care and education system — to “encourage” the Mexicans to stay in Mexico; free tuition and they can cut to the front of the acceptance line; one does not need to learn English for nine years; if they already went through the courts and were ordered to deport — they can just request citizenship; there are more than 30,000 illegals that are members of gangs in the United States — they just have to say they don’t want to be a gang member any more and they can request citizenship ... it just goes on and on.

Real EstateIn current market, sellers reset their expectations

RUTHERFORD (Sept. 30, 2010) — Who sets the tone and real estate values in the real estate market? Some may think it to be the Realtors and some may think it to be the sellers, but in truth it is what the buyers in the market are willing to pay for real estate. Sellers are resetting their expectations to be part of the continuing 2010 real estate market.

To be successful with a sale, sellers should step back and view their house as a commodity that is accepting to the market while depersonalizing their home and not viewing it with natural attachments.
