Unregulated Capitalism is ruining America giving the bum a dime will not suffice for economic andRead More environmental justice. Although plenty of work can be had cleaning up our polluted and litter landscapes the corporate private agenda will not allow it. Why has Governor Christie suspended Council on affordable Housing Mandates? We are a fallen people who stupidly do not realize it. Our system cheats the masses it is now in our time of human evolution, called progress in which it is either capitalism or the end of the world. Our system has obviously been hijacked by big money and private interest our politic stands opposed to the nation. The quicker we the people die the better then then rich can spend our social security. We are two nations one private the other ordinary people, a house divided, we may have well not have had a civil war. Government of, for by the people no longer exists. We have been duped by our own privileged class, the fairy tale of the individual and how we all can be like him/her, selfish, greedy, uncaring and yes patriotic and we abandon America in pursuit of more profit.

Ummmm, I think that was Richard Butler School...... Not Robert Butler Park!
Sherry June 14, 2012 at 06:51 pm
Well then Rich i hope your not either. Because God forbid a accident happens, (and I did sayRead More accident) the TRI-BORO FAS crew will do what they were taught how to make sure there is a safe route to get the patient to safety so thanks for giving everyone heads up that you are not willing to respond AND IF YOU DONT THINK YOU CAN THAT IS FINE. BECAUSE WE WOULD NOT WANT SOMEONE WHO CANT PREFORM UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. THANKS AGAIN RICH FOR LETING US KNOW.

I am just saying it will be difficult. If you don't believe me Sherry, just look at the radicalRead More terrain. Maybe the new owner will put a roadway down the embankment along with a parking area.

Sherry, seriously, now that the park is officially open and we have established that we are allRead More concerned about the preservation of the area and the wildlife, what exactly are the PRC rules and how are they to be enforced? These areas are very problematic on weekends and holidays and whenever it becomes very hot. Matt mentioned asking the Butler PD to make regular patrols of the area. Has there been any conversation with them? Who should we call if there is a problem albeit with the understanding that the Butler PD will only enforce obvious violations of town & state law. Do they have the authority to stop littering, swimming, destruction of vegetation, etc.? Is there a PRC rep available to call during these times who will have the ability to formally ask Butler PD to intervene? A flyer distributed in the neighborhood would be a terrific idea.

The contributions of Harry Hicks not just to Kinnelon but our surrounding area as a volunteerRead More fireman Emergency Management Coordinator (formerly called Civil Defense Director) and for years was the Route 23 Traffic Safety Coordinator appointed by multiple towns in that corridor; he would compile monthly accident statistics then send them to Trenton during the years before Route 23 was rebuilt and he made himself availalbe whenever possible to photograph traffic acciedent scenes for the police departments in the days before digital cameras were invented. The things that he has done to benefit all of us are tremendous. So after knowing him personally since I was 18 years old in 1970, he is truly one of the greats of our area. This award is definitely well deserved and so I say "thanks Harry."

How wonderful to get the children involved; they are the ones who will carry on for us theseRead More important ceremonies and remembering what our Veterans, our Neighbors, did so unselfishly for us so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have. Thank you to the Boy Scouts, leaders and VFW for involving our youth and lets hope we see many lined the streets this Memorial Day to honor our fallen Veterans. Jane McCarthy

My kids love Historic Speedwell. I've been sending them to the summer camp at the site, and weRead More attend almost all the events they have on weekends. We love the Civil War Encampment and the workshops they hold for the kids over the summer. We can't wait to see the new exhibit that's been installed there. Our neighbors went last week and they couldn't believe how much fun they all had!

If it's a one day trip, try Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, NY. I've lived in ParsippanyRead More for about 16 years, originally moved from Corona, Queens. There's just so much open space for picnics and walking around. As you walk around, you can't help but see the diversity of the neighborhood surrounding you. Corona is a true melting pot of cultures. If you're a history buff, the 1964 World's Fair attracted the entire world there. 95% of that history is gone, but there is still the main attraction, the Unisphere, that is a site to see! Every year, the tennis US Open takes place there. That time of year is even better, when you can walk around and be in a bodega one minute and then bump into a celebrity the next! The park fountains are all operating during the US Open. If you ever want to just get away (and don't mind paying the GWB and Triboro bridge tolls), take a walk in this hidden NYC gem.
