Hunterdon County’s Board of Commissioners, joined by County Veterans, at the December 7th Board meeting, designated December 7, 2021 as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, as part of a ceremony recognizing and honoring the lives lost, particularly fifteen New Jerseyans, on the 80th Anniversary of the attack that initiated the United States entry into World War II.
 
Board Director Susan J. Soloway stated, “Today marks a most important date in American history, the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941, well known to all of us from our history classes and the news reels of the time as, in the words of President Franklin Roosevelt, ‘a date that will live in infamy.’
 
It is a date, like September 11th, 2001, that should always be remembered by all Americans. With this Proclamation we honor the memory of the 2403 Americans whose lives were taken that day – Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, including fifteen New Jerseyans, and even 68 civilians. We recognize their service to our nation and mourn their loss.”

Commissioner Lanza:
PennEast Pipeline Plan
Now Officially Dead
The PennEast Pipeline Company has officially notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that it has ceased all further development of the pipeline project, Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Deputy Director John E. Lanza reported at the Board’s December 7th meeting.
 
Lanza, who has long been engaged in the efforts to stop the abuse of eminent domain, reported, “The county has received a copy of a communication, dated November 30, 2021, from PennEast to FERC that leaves no question that the effort to take land in our county for the pipeline project is now officially dead.”
