MESSAGE FROM STEVE RIBACK REGARDING MT. MILLS TRAFFIC
First, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who attended the Town Council meeting on July 5th to support the issue I raised concerning the traffic on Mounts Mills Rd. Your presence certainly added to our argument.
As an update, I would like to notify you that this morning, I received an email from our town engineer, Mark Rasimowicz. He informed me that Mayor Tamburro has corresponded with the County Administrator and Engineer. In his written correspondence, he requested that the County evaluate the intersection of Mounts Mills Rd and Englishtown Rd to determine the necessary measures to improve that intersection. This is a required first step toward any improvements to that intersection. Mr. Rasimowics also has reached out to the County Engineer directly.
At that meeting, I also requested that they look into creating dedicated left turn lanes into Monroe Parke’s commercial area from Mounts Mills Rd. Mr. Rasimowics informed me that they are not proposed by the developer at this time; however, he understands our concern and said that he will monitor the Mounts Mills access as the site develops. When the applicant returns to the board it can be revisited. There are, however, left-turn lanes proposed off of Spotswood Englishtown Rd into the development and at the proposed traffic signal at Spotswood Enlishtown and Mounts Mills.
This is only a step and I am grateful to the mayor as well as Marc Rasimowics for their quick and positive response to our concerns. But we must continue to bring this issue to the town government whether it be in writing or addressing the Town Council. I am still concerned that the current plans do not show a dedicated left turn lane into Monroe Parke from Mounts Mills Rd (between Spotswood Englishtown Rd and Englishtown Rd). The commercial space there will foster even more traffic and create congested and potentially dangerous driving conditions.
I will provide further updates as they arrive.
A special thanks to Ron Post for providing this important means of communication.
(STEVE, IT’S YOU WHO WE GIVE THANKS TOO FOR YOUR INVOLVEMENT WITH THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE. THAT LIGHT ON Mt MILLS AND ENGLISHTOWN ROAD IS VERY IMPORTANT)

If you are a Democrat you probably received in the mail the letter from these 3 Legislator’s writing about the “Senior Freeze.” They probably read my email from last week and said, “not a bad idea to send something like this out before our election.”
Regency, I never ask much, but I will ask you NOT to vote for these 3 legislator’s in the November elections. This is exactly what they do just prior to an election. Where was this letter when NJ instituted the “senior freeze?”
It is appalling that there was not even ONE MENTION of what, if anything, they are doing to get the State to properly fund us for education. Their letter will help just some residents. Getting proper funding for education, will affect all residents. Yet they sit back and do nothing and other townships like Freehold get millions of dollars for State aid for education plus money to build new schools.
Imagine, not one word in their letter deals with our getting one of the lowest amounts per student for State Aid.

Regency Bowling Captures Olympic Silver
On Saturday morning, July 15, at the refurbished Strathmore Lanes in Matawan, the Regency bowling teams captured Olympic silver. Fourteen communities from Middlesex and Monmouth Counties participated and were divided into three divisions. Each team had to have at least one woman bowler. Regency bowled in Division 1 this year. Each division has its own gold, silver, and bronze medal winners. Having 14 three or four-member teams compete at the same time on 44 lanes at one venue created quite a chaotic, exciting event.
Only the past two Olympic averages were used as opening averages. New bowlers established their opening averages with this year’s three games. Regency swept one match against Stonebridge, won two games and total wood from Clearbrook, but lost three games to Greenbriar/Whittingham for a total of 12 points. Greenbriar/Whittingham won gold with 14 points. The Regency highlights were Mark Spinner’s series of 663 including a 258 game, Gary Ferrazzano’s game of 232, Neil Sohmer’s game of 225, Leo Friedlich’s game of 216, and Roger Dantoni’s game of 206.
Regency Bowling Olympic Teams:
1) Ellen Porges, Phil Fishman, Rich Smilowitz, Bill Andruzzi,
2) Elaine Hathaway, Russ Porges, Roger Dantoni, Leo Friedlich,
3) Adele Buren, Gary Ferrazzano, Neil Sohmer, Mark Spinner.
Congratulations and thanks to these terrific bowlers for their enthusiastic participation. Special thanks to Neil Sohmer, the captain of the three teams, for a job well done.
The Regency Men Bowling League is accepting entry fees for the 2017 fall season. All bowlers at every skill level are welcome to join. It’s a great recreational night out to have competitive fun every Thursday evening from 6:30 to 9:00 pm. For further information, please contact Russ Porges, 732-561-2301, Gary Ferrazzano, 917-319-6210, or Ping Eng 732-521-5508.

Join Regency Hadassah and find out about the
Secret Jews and Hidden Lives Medieval Times to the 21stCentury
Monday evening, August 21 at 7PM in the Regency Club House Ballroom
Enjoy this thought provoking night with Regency Hadassah as we meet Antonia J.Martinez (Julie) who will provide insight into the history of the Jewish population of the Iberian Peninsula and its ramifications centuries later. Born into the Catholic faith, Julie was innately drawn to Judaism without any rational explanation. She began a search without knowing what she was searching for or why. The answer revealed itself to her over a period of three decades. Come listen to her historical and personal discoveries that have led her to embrace her newly found heritage, stifled over the course of centuries past. Learn about the hidden lives of Crypto Jews. Following the Spanish Edict of Expulsion in 1492, many Jews publicly converted to Catholicism, yet continued to practice Judaism in secrecy. Learn about all of this and so much more. This meeting is open to all.
Refreshments to be served. RSVP to Genia Beeferman at email@example.com or call 732-656-4525 or Leslie Kohn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 732-656-1412.

GUESS WHAT SONG
Mo Adler and I absolutely love the music of the 50’s and 60’s. The other night he asked me, WHAT SONG DID CRAZY ELEPHANT SING? I didn’t know but do you know? It was a pretty popular song.
Okay, I love Regency so I will give you a hint. The first word of the song is GIMME

WHAT SONG OR SINGER DO YOU LIKE?
As you know my music collection of the 50’ and 60’ with some early 70’s is HUGE. So let me know which song or singer you would like to listen too and I will try to include it in my next weekend’s email.
To Florida Snowbirds,
You may be aware that a large portion of Western Boynton Beach ( along Lyons Road) is zoned as an agricultural reserve which prevents development. GL homes is lobbying to have that zoning changed so that is can build on those preserved lands. If you agree that the area is already overbuilt and lacks the infrastructure to support additional density, and should continue to be preserved as farmland, please let the Palm Beach County commissioners know your feelings by clicking on the link below, complete the form and submit it as soon as possible.
Thank you for your assistance in the matter.
