Meet Your Mount Olive Town Council President

Joe Nicastro, My Life Publications publisher, and Mount Olive Township Council President, has a fun goal.
He wants to be on stage. “I love comedy. I always wanted to do stand-up comedy. That’s one of the things I wanted to do and actually I did one time. A comedian had invited me to do a stand-up routine at a wedding, believe it or not. I did it, but unfortunately – eh, I won’t say it was that great, but I still want to do something with it.” Read More

Residents Invited To Drop Off Worn Or Torn Flags In New Mailboxes

There are two new eye-catching mailboxes in town but they are not the typical mailbox for dropping in letters or bills.
Residents now have a place to drop off torn or old flags to be properly deposited and disposed. One mailbox is located at Town Hall in Budd Lake and the other was just installed right before Memorial Day just adjacent to the All Veterans Memorial at Turkey Brook Park, also in Budd Lake.
“The purpose of the boxes is to give the residents a place to bring old worn out flags,” explains Council President Joe Nicastro who came up with the idea a year ago. “There is a place at the All Veterans Memorial for properly burning the flag that will be done by the VFW or other organizations.” Read More
