Inspired by Political Events, A Show Of Unity In Red Bank

first_imgBy John Burton|RED BANK – It wasn’t just women who came to a rally at Riverside Gardens Park last Saturday.“More than 50 percent of our population is women,” said Errol Logan, a Bound Brook resident who traveled to Red Bank last Saturday to participate in the gathering. “So, it’s important to show our support for women and their issues. “Women’s rights are human rights,” Logan said.Logan was one of what organizers estimated were roughly 500 people – men and women from a wide range of ages, many with young children in tow – who gathered at the borough’s Riverside Gardens Park on the afternoon of Jan. 21.The intent of the rally, organized by the recently formed Greater Red Bank Women’s Initiative, was to show solidarity with the worldwide series of marches and rallies taking place that day. Those marches, initially in support of women’s issues, also came to include concerns over the environment, civil liberties and immigrant rights in light of comments made by President Donald J. Trump leading up to the election and since taking the oath of office on Jan. 20. Many of the participants were wearing the same pink hats visible at the events in New York City, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. They held signs expressing their views and concerns.The Red Bank event, according to one of the organizers, Ellen Herman, was intended as a nonpartisan expression in the spirit of Red Bank’s tradition of fostering diversity and inclusion. But, as fellow organizer Suellen Sims said in her remarks to the crowd later that afternoon, “That diversity is always an ephemeral quality that can be extinguished too early.” Naulty has “major concerns about this administration’s changes to environmental regulations” and stressed how important it is to “protect this world and all who live in it.”Rubina Tareen, a Muslim who traveled from Pennsylvania to participate in the rally, told the gathering she came to combat fear-mongering. “We gather here today to meet ignorance with understanding,” she said.Red Bank resident Barbara Boas said she attended Saturday’s rally because she was concerned about the direction the nation could be taking with the new administration, especially concerning public education. “It’s not a protest,” she maintained about the day’s activities, “but an announcement that we are here and we’re not going anywhere.”“I felt strongly enough and wanted to be a part of something,” said Nicole Korman, Howell, who came with her 2-year-old son, Logan. “Clearly, something has to be done to keep our ideals.”“The real question,” asked Herman, “is where do we go from here?”“I truly believe the antidote is to get involved,” Sims said.Tim McLoone, the local restaurateur and musician who is active on many community fronts, served as the event’s M.C. and said he believed there is always something to be done. “If you can’t change the wind,” he reminded the crowd, “you can at least adjust your sails.”Lynn Cremona, Neptune, vowed to stay active and offered a warning. “If they thought we were uppity feminists before,” she said, “watch the next four years.” Sims said the day after Trump’s election it was important to reaffirm the shared beliefs of many in attendance. Of the treatment of the immigrant population everywhere, she asked, “Should they be tarnished as ‘the other’?”Several hundred people gathered at Red Bank’s Riverside Gardens Park on Saturday afternoon in a show of unity.

Jessica Brendler Naulty, senior pastor for the United Methodist Church, 247 Broad St., “is basic human decency.”last_img read more

GECOM officials abusing taxpayers’ monies

first_imgDear Editor,The internal dynamics of Guyana are in a potentially explosive political crisis, emanating from who control Guyana. Many intelligent and sincere people are convinced that the taking of or continuation in power by the APNU/AFC coalition Government will be destructive for the nation while the Government satisfies their own self-interest.The most troublesome and worrying development is the Guyana Elections Commission, which was explicitly created to prepare and conduct elections (which the Constitution specified could be held anytime) and which exists to continuously update the voters’ registry and otherwise prepare for elections at any time. GECOM is acting in defiance of the Constitution and continues to be partisan in its behaviour when making critical decisions. It is factual that GECOM is an autonomous Commission that is being financed by taxpayers, and must ensure that its constitutional mandates are being fulfilled despite any external political forces. The drastic action by  GECOM to embark on House-to-House Registration cannot satisfy all stakeholders in the holding of credible elections since obligations to hold genuine elections have not been addressed comprehensively or systematically by GECOM.However, no two electoral systems are exactly alike, there is no single model of democracy, there is no one size democracy that fits all, while it differs, the range of democratic systems does share one important similarity that is the intricate link to everyone’s civil rights and obligations.While each country’s sovereign right is to choose how to conduct its elections, UN member states have agreed by a set of obligations and commitments to protect and promote electoral rights of their citizens, basically to ensure that every citizen has the effective right and opportunity to participate in elections on an equal basis.If a Guyanese goes out of the country for six months and returns to Guyana after the final voters’ list has been compiled by GECOM, (but their name was on the last voters’ list), only to be told that their name is no longer on the voters’ list, that would deny this person an opportunity of their constitutional right to vote. Therefore, the ongoing HTH Registration is not only denying this person their right, but many other Guyanese who are holidaying overseas.Guyanese must ask:1) Why is it that GECOM presently doesn’t have a valid voters’ list?2) Why did GECOM allow the voters’ list to expire?3) What happens if there should be by-elections in the Local Government System?Billions are being spent by taxpayers yet officials who are mandated to execute their functions are failing.  We must not continue to pay officials for failure and incompetence in GECOM.GECOM, under its new leadership, must act professionally to ensure that Guyana remains a democratic State. The UN, OAS, Carter Center etc must be asked to assist in the preparations for elections before September 18, 2018. Congratulations to the new Chairperson of GECOM.Regards,Zamal Hussainlast_img read more

San Marino’s top cop

first_imgSome say Isaacs’ calm demeanor matches that of the affluent city he’s protected since 1980, which, with its philosophy of historic preservation and expansive, stylish homes built more than a half-century ago, still maintains an air reminiscent of a more genteel era. “Gary is a very steady fellow,” said former San Marino Mayor Gene Dryden, a 71-year city resident. “He transmits to the community a sense of confidence in the police department. And you get the feeling the people in his department have confidence in him.” Former Arcadia police Chief Bob Hinig agrees, describing Isaacs as “approachable and personable.” “His heart and soul rest with that department,” he said. “He came up through the organization. His intimate knowledge of the community and the personnel in the department give him the best vantage point for guiding the department.” Unlike many who wear the badge, whose dreams of law enforcement began as children, Isaacs didn’t consider becoming a cop until he was 25, having worked in the grocery business for several years after high school. SAN MARINO – Nearly a decade has passed since the city’s last homicide, according to police Chief Gary Isaacs. It was sometime in the mid-1990s, said Isaacs, struggling to pinpoint an exact date for San Marino’s most recent homicide. In fact, Isaacs, who took over as this city’s top cop a year and a half ago, can list San Marino’s outstanding criminal events of the last generation or so on one hand. “The degree of stability here is very comforting,” said Isaacs, a 27-year veteran of the department. “It’s been stable for decades.” “I went on a ride-along with Baldwin Park officers set up by a family friend,” said Isaacs, sitting in his office at the rear of the community’s police facility, “and I have been in love with the profession ever since.” Isaacs said his parents – a former salesman and a homemaker – still live in the same Covina house where he was raised, adding that the middle-class stability of his childhood defined the calm that now reflects in his demeanor. “My mother was always home when we came home from school,” he said, recalling a childhood in the east San Gabriel Valley city with his lone sibling, an older brother. “That really makes a difference in a child’s life, I think.” After attending the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department academy, Isaacs spent three years as an officer in the Baldwin Park department before transferring to San Marino. Policing a city with a notably low crime rate must be met with an attitude of public service, he said, rather than the cops-and-robbers excitement found in areas with more criminal activity. “When I interview potential officers, I look for that attitude,” Isaacs said. “There must be a desire to protect citizens from crime, but there is a crossover to community service that is necessary.” Isaacs, an avid pilot who has been married to his wife, Susan, for 27 years, has managed to merge his dedication to public service with an interest in piloting. Much of his free time is spent teaching students who’ve received piloting scholarships from a fund he established at Mt. San Antonio College.

first_imgHe spoke of the emotion involved with pulling on the green and gold, the work ethic involved to get there, and the passion that Australians- both competitors and spectators have for sports such as Touch.Dean Russell inspired all with his speech during the Opening Ceremony of the National 18 Years and under Championships yesterday.Russell is the current General Manager of NSW Touch Association, but over the years he has played a much different role to this.With a total of 52 caps for Australia, he was a member of the Australian Mixed Open team between 1986 and 1993.And although he was taking the field in the green and gold when most participants at this tournament were youngsters, his words could not have been more relevant.He described the pride involved when watching a fellow Australian excel in the sporting arena.“No doubt we all gazed in adoration of Cathy Freeman as she sat motionless on the track after winning at the Sydney Olympics, or like me, were swearing at the TV as those Italians dived to rob the Socceroos of a World Cup dream or been screaming with the masses as Thorpie mowed down Gary Hall Jnr to snatch a thrilling victory in the 4 x 100 metres freestyle relay at Sydney,” he said. “All famous sporting moments that makes us proud.”But Russell believes that this feeling is nothing compared to actually taking to the field as a representative of your country, personally.“The first time you pull on the green and gold to represent your country in your chosen sport is a feeling that is unsurpassable and one that doesn’t change from the first time or your 52nd time,” he said.“That first moment is hard to describe but one you will never forget…it’s honour, it’s pride, it’s passion and it’s fear. “But most importantly it’s humility, realising that you are one of a very very few who have been given the privilege to represent Australia with only the one ask, that being to give it your all and to continue the legacy built up by those who have traveled this road before.”Russell is an experienced coach, having coached the Australian Senior Mixed Open team and being the Assistant Coach of both the Australian Mixed Open and Australian Women’s Open teams. He is the current coach of the Australian Women’s 20’s and it was this coaching knowledge that he drew upon when urging the players to strive for the top.He referred to English writer DH Lawrence who said ‘Australians play sport as though their lived depended on it.’“It is these ‘characteristics’ that we as coaches will be looking for in our future athletes,” he said.“So therein lies your challenge for this week, to show this character, not based on the fact to make the National squad but rather to help your own team.”He challenged the players to try that extra bit harder, and to lift when they’re down.“Over this week there are going to be times when things look bleak or times when someone is down, this will be your signal to try that little bit harder. “Don’t yield to the pressure or give up. Stick together on and off the field and keep you and your team going at the opposition at all times.  Dig deep and you’ll find strength, believe in yourself and find inspiration in each others efforts. Above all never ever give up.“Be there and get there to make the touch that has to be made, take that ruck that no one wants to take, go to half when you’re so tired your legs are screaming at you to stop and get off the field- make the effort, whatever it is. Slap your sub on the back ‘great work, keep going, we’ve got them’,” he said.These are the inspirational words that will be running through the heads of the players as they take the field this week. It might just help them score that touchdown, or make that touch.last_img read more
