Resolution in Support of Ukraine and Big Anniversary for New Jersey This Week at Randolph Town Council Meeting

April 6, 2014 at 8:53 PM

RANDOLPH, NJ - Assemblyman Anthony Bucco and Ukraine Consul General Igor Sybiga were just two of the dignitaries to speak before an audience at the Township Council meeting on Thursday, April 3.  The passage of a resolution in support of Ukraine was well attended, with many Ukrainian-Americans present.

Introduced by Councilman Roman Hirniak, the resolution expresses support for Ukraine’s independence and sovereignty, condemnation of the recent events in violation of that sovereignty, and solidarity with those who have sacrificed themselves in the cause of their homeland.

“People of our great nation know full well the price of freedom...and when you’re in those battles there is nothing better then to have friends,” Bucco said.

Consul General Sybiga thanked the council and said, “The situation in Ukraine deteriorates at a dramatic pace...neither Ukraine, nor the international community, can recognize this travesty of travesties.”

“In this complicated period for Ukraine, I thank the governing body of the township of Randolph, other U.S. partners, and the Ukrainian-American community of Morris County, all who support Ukraine in it’s struggle for sovereignty.  I hope to unite our efforts and to help to secure peace in Ukraine and the rest of the world.”

Father Roman Mirchuk, a board member of the Ukrainian-American Cultural Center of NJ in Whippany, also thanked the council.  “It means a lot to us that our fellow Americans here in NJ and in Randolph stand with us because it is only right that America, a haven of all the persecuted, should defend those that are persecuted elsewhere.”

Also that evening, council marked a very special anniversary for New Jersey.  350 years ago King Charles II deeded ownership of the area that would become known as New Jersey to two noblemen -  John Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret - who established a proprietary colony and named it after Carteret’s ancestral home, the Channel Isle of Jersey.

Deputy Mayor Joanne Veech read a proclamation and presented Marcia Rumsey of the Landmarks Committee with a plaque.  The Landmarks Committee will coordinate events and activities for this year’s commemoration.

A group from the high school also attended the meeting.  Members of the Autism Speaks Club and their teacher advisors, stood with Mayor Loveys for the reading of a proclamation designating April as “Randolph Autism Awareness Month.”

It’s a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects millions worldwide, in our country and at home here in New Jersey,” Loveys said.

“On behalf of the RHS Autism Speaks Club I would like to thank Mayor Loveys and the town council for having us here tonight and for their willingness to join us in the effort to celebrate and improve the lives of those affected with the autism spectrum of disorders,” a club member said.

Finally, council passed an ordinance that will slightly increase Randolph Park Beach’s summer fees.  Resident seasonal beach memberships for family, individual, and couples each went up $5, as did non-resident individual and non-resident family passes.  All day-pass prices remain the same.

The next town council meeting will be held on Thursday April 24 at 7:00 p.m., and will be open to the public.

When Good Enough, Isn't

“Good enough is the death of greatness.”

I fell in love with this quote when I first heard it because it rings so true in sports and in life. Being a competitive athlete it is easy to fall into this trap of making some progress, seeing some success and then getting satisfied. When that feeling starts to sink in think about how many times in the course of a game or season good ...
