On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Obama their Person of the Year, again... BORING.
Who cares about the same-old, same-old?
Here at Wyckoff-Franklin Lakes Patch all we care about is local.
The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including the president, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, Apple CEO Tim Cook, the Mars Rover and Higgs Boson Particle — neither of whom are even people.
Talk about jumping the shark... add that to the fact that they seem to have completely ignored the newsmakers from here in Bergen County.
Now is your time to fix that... who is your Wyckoff-Franklin Lakes Person of the Year — the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse?"
You can pick anyone from Franklin Lakes Mayor Frank Bivona who made the news for riding the utility companies after Hurricane Sandy, Wyckoff resident Lynn Murphy for her work with the charity 074ATE1, outgoing Wyckoff Mayor Chris DePhillips, or township Chief of Police Benjamin Fox who made some high profile arrests this past year.
There are so many more to choose from... we'll accept individuals, animals, groups, inanimate objects (Time set a precedent) and anything else you can think of.
