Assembly Approves Eustace Ban on Transporting Game Trophies Through N.J. Airports

Additional Eustace Bill Would Boost Protections for Endangered Species in N.J.

                (TRENTON) – Legislation Assembly Democrats Tim Eustace proposed to help protect threatened animals from extinction by banning the transport of game trophies of threatened or endangered species through airports and facilities controlled by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was approved by the full Assembly.

                Since the airports and facilities controlled by the Port Authority – Newark Liberty International, J.F.K and LaGuardia – are some of the most heavily traveled routes back to the U.S. from countries in Africa, Eustace hope the ban will serve as a disincentive for killing endangered animals for sport.

Bergenfield St. Patrick's Day Parade Fest At Tommy Fox's Public House

St. Patty's Day An invitation came through from NJ Assemblyman Tim Eustace to attend a pre-parade St. Patty's Day celebration at Tommy Fox's Public House in Bergenfield. Mr. Eustace was the volunteer Emcee at the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club Fashion Show in February so we felt that it was only fitting to reciprocate. Arriving about 15 minutes before the celebration at Tommy Fox, parking presented a problem. Luckily we were early enough to gain a parking space on the street behind the restaurant. Parking on S. Washington Avenue  was prohibited so that the parade could  take place.. This necessitated a climb up the back steps to reach the main level.

Cooktique Constantly Self Improves

Cooktique When www.ParamusPost.com requested permission from Cooktique's co-owner Karine Abrahamyan to visit and to take pictures for a story, her first response was not that day. It seems that she had Miriam Miller of M. Miller Designs coming in to upgrade the store display. Karine suggested that we wait a day and come in then. Even that delay didn't complete the task for Miriam was there placing items into appealing presentations the next day. This is an example of how the Cooktique owners approach their clientele. For them, they want nothing but the best!
