The owners of Angie's offer their gratitude to the business community and their patrons after a difficult year.
Our warmest holiday wishes to all our customers and fellow merchants this Christmas time. So many of you helped us recover from a serious fire earlier this year at our coffee shop.

God bless your new year with good help and happiness. Jimmy and Louia Poulimenos Owners, Angie's Luncheonette

To the Editor, As election day looms, there is more here than just electing a new president. We also have our local races. We here in Chatham Township need Kevin Sullivan to be elected to the Township Committee. He has served our town well over the years, has a great background, has served our country, is a family man, etc. He has what it takes to serve us with solid common sense, thoughtfulness, fiscal responsibility and knowledge of our town needs. Kevin Sullivan has been endorsed by many in town, existing, and former members of the Committee, as well as current and former mayors. Member of the planning board, Member of St. Pats, former coach of our children, and a good and decent man. I have had the privilege of dealing with Mr. …

Whippany resident responds to recent 'Letter to the Editor' criticizing congressman.
To the Editor: In response to "Veteran Questions Frelinghuysen's Voting Record" dated Sept. 28, 2012 This issue again? I am always amused that partisan opponents of our Congressman, Rodney Frelinghuysen, think they can curry favor with the voters by attacking a fellow veteran with a distinguished record of service. Sure, anyone can take a few votes out of context in a career filled with thousands of votes. But the truth of the matter is that I know of no other veteran who thinks Mr. Frelinghuysen doesn’t care about veterans or does them any ill. In fact, talk to any of the veterans leaders in this area and they will tell you they are proud to stand alongside Frelinghuysen. Actually, Mr. Foley’s attacks are not amusing. They are a sad …

John Paul Foley attended a town hall meeting in Roseland in June, where U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen was in attendance.
To the Editor: I attended a town hall meeting on Saturday, June 23, 2012, at the Roseland Municipal Building that was conducted by Rodney Frelinghuysen, the Congressman representing NJ’s 11th district. As a veteran who served this country, I have a special interest in understanding how and why our representatives vote on issues of war, the military, and veterans’ affairs. I asked Congressman Frelinghuysen three questions about his voting record: Congressman Frelinghuysen never answered the first question. With respect to the second two, he replied as follows: “Veterans should never be second class citizens. I’ve always voted to support health care and job training for veterans.” When asked the third question, the Congressman actually …

The Chatham Township Committee will discuss a possible cell tower at Esternay Field Thursday.
To the Editor: This Thursday, Sept. 27, the Chatham Township Committee will discuss a “possible ordinance or resolution” for a “temporary T-Mobile cell tower lease at Esternay Field.” Essentially, the Township Committee is considering whether to allow T-Mobile to remove the upper playground at Esternay Field and, in its place, install a “temporary” T-Mobile cell tower. The 150-ft. cell tower and it’s equipment trailer will look much like the “temporary” cell tower that currently sits next to the Chatham Township Municipal Bldg. In exchange, the Township will receive a fee of approximately $3,000 per month. I’m writing this letter to ask residents to urge the Chatham Township Committee to reject any additional T-Mobile “temporary” cell…

Organization's housing alliance reps grateful to keep affordable housing funding.
The following Letter to the Editor was submited by the United Way of Northern New Jersey Just four months ago, United Way of Northern New Jersey Housing Alliance representatives approached local state legislators, Sen. Anthony R. Bucco and Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco, with a simple appeal. We asked them to help keep $22 million of funding earmarked for affordable housing in Morris County rather than forfeiting it to plug holes in the state budget. The father-and-son team heard the merits and filed common-sense legislation to keep the funding in our county. Co-sponsors have joined the effort and our Morris County freeholders have lent their support, too. We applaud our elected officials for seeing the need for affordable housing in our …

A township resident explains why Nonnenmacher gets her vote.
To the editor: As the June 7th Republican primary quickly approaches in Chatham Township, I wanted to bring attention to candidate Laura Ali Nonnenmacher—especially for those residents who have not had the pleasure of knowing or working with this dynamic individual. As a Chatham Township resident for almost 12 years with four children in the school district, I have known Laura on a professional and personal level for more than four years and have worked with her on numerous committees at the Southern Boulevard School. Never have I met a person with more heart, initiative, integrity, business savvy, an ability to think outside the box, a willingness to speak her mind, an effectiveness at working with disparate groups, and the skill to …
