Rich LaBarbiera won the mayoral election in Paramus defeating Sam Casiello. His two running mates, Rich Conte and Pat Verile did not fare as well. Although there were still absentee ballots to be counted and accounted for, the Democrats went with the count that they had and conceded defeat to Ralph Amato and Eric Nazziola.

I want to take this opportunity to "THANK" the youngsters of Rochelle Park and their parents for the co-operation in complying with the curfew on Mischief Night. During the night we had a few reported instances of mischief, two of which could be considered somewhat serious. Damage to Halloween decorations at a Chestnut Ave. home, and the arrest of two juveniles in possession of paint. The two will be charged and remanded to Juvenile Court in Hackensack. A 16 year old from Hackensack and a 15 year old from Fort Lee were taken into police custody and released to their parents.

Congress handed the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) some assumptions, the computers came up with the mix of adjustments needed to give a magic number under $1 trillion in 10 years, and the “Affordable Care Act” (ACA) emerged. The “affordable” trillion apparently means net additional federal government expenditures, with the Treasury envisioned as one big pot of liquid gold. All the revenue gets mixed in, and the financial engineers turn the valves to direct the outgo. Less will go into some channels (“savings”), and more into others.
