Town's annual reorganization meeting was held on Tuesday.
In a non-election year, much of Tuesday night’s Morristown reorganization was routine, with board appointments and responsibilities for council members remaining mostly as they were in 2012. Five volunteer firefighters were sworn in, as is the annual custom. With no objections from the other council members in attendance—councilman Kevin Gsell did not arrive until during the regular Town Council meeting—Michelle Dupree Harris was again named council president and Rebecca Feldman was again named council vice president. 2013 will be the pair’s second year’s serving in those roles. One council member, however, was noticeably absent: longtime member Anthony Cattano Jr., who died in September. “It was a sad year,” noted Town Clerk Matt …

The first, Olivia Graciela Heyman, of Budd Lake was born at 6:04 a.m.
Oh, baby! Babies. Six, in fact. It wouldn't be a New Year without some New Years babies to welcome 2013 into the world. Morristown Medical Center did not have its first birth until the year was six hours and four minutes old (practically ancient!). But, Olivia Graciela Heyman—daughter of Brett and Carolina Heyman of Budd Lake—has the proud honor of being the first baby at our hospital in 2013. Weighing in at seven pounds, two ounces, little Olivia and parents are all doing well. Five others followed on Tuesday, at 6:17 a.m. (so close!), 10:39 a.m., 2:58 p.m., 4:43 p.m. and the final New Years baby squeaking by with barely any time to spare, at 11:48 p.m.
