ROXBURY TWP. – Donald J. Dyrness, owner of Main Street Custom Homes & Remodeling, LLC (MSCH&R) was named 2022 Remodeler of the Year by the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association of New Jersey (MetroBCA).

The award was presented to Dyrness during MetroBCA’s Installation of 2023 Officers & Directors Holiday Party held at the Bridgewater Manor in Bridgewater, on Thursday, Dec. 15.

According to the organization, this award is presented each year to recognize one MetroBCA builder member in the specific area of remodeling, whose work is an outstanding example of building and remodeling.

“I am honored, as there are so many talented members,” said Dyrness.

This past year has been an exciting year for Dyrness. In December 2021, he was appointed as a member of Metro’s Board of Directors. He also serves as co-chair of the Remodeler’s Council. This past June, Dyrness was presented with an award for Best Custom Single Family Home for a lake front home in Sussex County. He said he takes great pride in collaborating with his peers during in person networking events and over zoom meetings. “Every project no matter the size is given the same level of detail and attention,” he said.

Dyrness became involved in the construction industry at an early age, helping his father Dan Dyrness on job sites and learning the trade from the ground up. Upon earning his degree in chemical engineering, he returned to his roots, building a career constructing custom homes, additions and remodeling projects for over 30 years.

Main Street Custom Homes & Remodeling, LLC designs and builds single-family residences, additions, remodeling projects and light commercial jobs. MSCH&R is led by long-time Succasunna, residents, father and son team, Daniel & Donald Dyrness, who share a long history of constructing award winning projects together.

ROXBURY, NJ - With 42 days left until the annual Rox-THON charity dance marathon at Roxbury High School, the students involved in planning the event are in the home stretch of soliciting donations and sponsors.

The goal of Rox-THON is to raise money that will be donated to Goryeb Children’s Hospital in Morristown and to Four Diamonds (Penn State Children’s Hospital) for pediatric cancer research. Last year’s event raised $55,566.

Rox-THON 2023 will take place March 10. It will be a 12-hour-long gathering in the Roxbury High School gymnasium, running from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

The students are seeking both direct donations and business sponsorships. Information on both can be found here.

On Thursday, the Roxbury Rotary Club did its part to support the cause by donating $1,000. The donation took place at the club’s weekly luncheon after members heard a presentation by Rox-THON President Diya Narayan, a Roxbury High School senior, and Rox-THON Vice President Tyler Benedetto, a junior.

“They, along with their advisor, Michael Gottfried and the rest of their members, are a shining example of what’s great about our town of Roxbury,” said the Rotary Club on its Facebook page.

The Rox-THON organizers are creative in their fundraising. They recently sold, for $750, a coffee table made by Roxbury High School senior Anthony Blehl. The table, made of olive, maple, resin and steel, was valued at $600.

Rox-THON organizers also raise money through their "flocking" program wherein people can pay to have plastic flamingoes placed on lawns.

On the Rox-THON website, the students explain the importance of supporting the event.

“All of us have been impacted by cancer - family, friends, neighbors, peers, staff,” they wrote. “The list goes on. There are several students in Roxbury’s school system that have had or currently have cancer. Just a couple years ago we lost a student - Nick Russo. We even lost three faculty members in recent memory to cancer - Mrs. Hopper (English), Mrs. Bauer (Guidance), and Ms. Nagy (Computer Science).“

Since the students began the Rox-THON effort in 2014 (initially called the mini-THON) they have raised nearly $379,000.

The teens note that money raised by Rox-THON is “helping save the lives of countless children, while working towards finding a cure so that no parent ever has to be told ‘Your child has cancer.“

ROXBURY, NJ – The Roxbury School Board might return to offering remote access to its meetings, something that’s not been done in 18 months.

Board President Leo Coakley this week asked that the topic be discussed by the board’s Policy and Governance Committee. He directed the committee to come back to the full board with its findings.

At the meeting, several board members said they would support allowing virtual access in some form. The board offered remote attendance of meetings during the height of the COVID-19 situation after it canceled in-person gatherings in April 2020.

The district used the WebEX platform. That came to an end in July 2021.

Since then, the topic has been broached several times, but no effort has been made to seriously consider restoring some form of remote access to meetings. “We need to have that debate and discussion,” said Roxbury School Board Member Joseph Bocchino at this week’s meeting.

It was a sentiment shared by several of his board colleagues including new Board Member Sharon MacGregork, Board Member Anne Colucci and Board Member Edwin Botero, who said he is “100 percent on-board” with the idea.

Appearing to be less in favor was Board Member Carol Scheneck, who said she attended a seminar on the topic during the recent New Jersey Education Association Convention in Atlantic City.

Scheneck, a lawyer, said those attending the seminar were warned about potential legal pitfalls, particularly related to the possibility of slanderous or otherwise improper comments from members of the audience being broadcast during the livestream. She suggested those on the Policy and Governance Committee reach out to the New Jersey School Boards Association for guidance.

Colucci said she supported some form of remote access to meetings, noting that “it would be nice” for parents and grandparents to be able to watch meetings, particularly those like this week’s, where students made a presentation before the board.

Coakley said the committee should come back to the full board with options and “a list of pros and cons” that would be discussed in public. “I’m open to it, but I want to hear the pros and cons,” he said in an interview Thursday.

Although the school board showed some interest in providing virtual access to its meetings, the Roxbury Mayor and Council seems set against it. The Mayor and Council began offering remote access to its meetings in March 2020 via the Zoom platform, but stopped doing so in July 2022.

At this week's council meeting, Succasunna resident Joanne Bock asked that Zoom meetings be reinstated. She said remote access would be helpful to people who want to know what's going on with the council but can't, for various reasons, drive to town hall for meetings.

Her request was flatly rejected by Roxbury Mayor Jim Rilee. “We haven’t discussed that of late,” he said. “I don’t see it going that direction, honestly.”

Roxbury Schools Superintendent Announces Retirement

ROXBURY, NJ – Roxbury Schools Superintendent Loretta Radulic today announced she is retiring effective June 30, a decision she said entailed “a mix of excitement, appreciation and nostalgia.”Radulic said she submitted her letter of resignation to the school board on Monday and noted it will be part of the board’s Feb. 13 meeting agenda.

ROXBURY, NJ – Roxbury Schools Superintendent Loretta Radulic today announced she is retiring effective June 30, a decision she said entailed “a mix of excitement, appreciation and nostalgia.”

Radulic said she submitted her letter of resignation to the school board on Monday and noted it will be part of the board’s Feb. 13 meeting agenda. She said the remaining months until she leaves give “plenty of time for the board and community to work together to find Roxbury’s next superintendent.”

Radulic’s current 5-year contract was signed in 2020. It paid her an initial salary of $235,184. Radulic, who was assistant superintendent since July 2012, has been Roxbury’s school superintendent since January 2016 when she replaced former superintendent Patrick Tierney who took a job in Jefferson.

“In 2016, the Board of Education tasked me with creating stability, consistency, clear expectations for excellence and a vision for Roxbury’s continued progress as a school district,” wrote Radulic in a letter posted today on the district’s website. “I believe that task has been accomplished.”

The superintendent said she set “a personal mission to create a comprehensive and superior educational experience” that prepares Roxbury students for the future.

“With a highly effective central office and administrative team of directors, principals and supervisors sharing in the vision to ‘prepare the children of today for tomorrow,’ we designed programming to offer a plethora of experiences and pathways leading towards careers,” Radulic said.

She cited increased electives and many dual-credit classes as among the district’s recent accomplishments. “We created initiatives to enhance the culture of our district as exemplified in our Portrait of a Graduate, Sustainability, Inclusivity, Social Emotional programs and Wellness,” wrote the superintendent.

'A Lot of Innovation'

Roxbury School Board President Leo Coakley said he and the other board members were “surprised” when Radulic told them about her decision. He said she will be missed.

“She’s done some marvelous improvements to the district over the past seven years,” Coakley said. “It was her spirit and energy and imagination and involvement with the community as well as the faculty and administration. There’s been a lot of innovation in the district. We are certainly going to miss her.”

Coakley said Radulic, a Jefferson resident, clearly “loves Roxbury” and gave “no inkling” that she is planning to look for another job.

“While being your Superintendent, I achieved my doctorate,” Radulic said in her letter. “I appreciate the Board and community’s contribution to that achievement. The topic of my dissertation was resiliency in leadership. It was my goal to be a long-standing superintendent in this district. What better way to achieve it than to research resiliency! I have outlasted every superintendent since 1995. I couldn’t find any information prior to that date. My hope is that your next superintendent beats my record!”

Former Roxbury School Still Needs a Purpose

ROXBURY, NJ – Almost a year has passed since the Canal Society of New Jersey (CSNJ) backed away from a plan to buy the former Lafayette School in Roxbury and turn the historic building into its headquarters.In doing so, the non-profit group disappointed Roxbury officials who, for more than a decade, have been struggling to find a tenant for the vacant building.So, when Roxbury officials learned in November the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, they weren’t particularly excited.

ROXBURY, NJ – Almost a year has passed since the Canal Society of New Jersey (CSNJ) backed away from a plan to buy the former Lafayette School in Roxbury and turn the historic building into its headquarters.

In doing so, the non-profit group disappointed Roxbury officials who, for more than a decade, have been struggling to find a tenant for the vacant building.

So, when Roxbury officials learned in November the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, they weren’t particularly excited. They still don’t know what to do with the 102-year-old edifice on Mill Road in Lower Berkshire Valley, a building made with thick, cast-in-place concrete walls covered with a rubble stone veneer.

“We plan on regrouping this year by looking at various options, some of which we discussed today by telephone,” said Roxbury Township Manager John Shepherd today.

The former 2-room schoolhouse has been unoccupied for about 13 years. It’s been at least 60 years since it served as a place of learning.

“We’ve been working on this for years,” said Shepherd. “Way before I started, in 2017, the town was actively looking for tenant … The last thing the town actively used it for was for nutrition center.“

Canal Society Sinks Plan

Because the building is near the remains of the former Morris Canal, those involved in the concept thought it would be an ideal home for the CSNJ. However, in a March 15, 2021 email to Shepherd, Canal Society President Joseph Macasek said the deal was off.

“Sorry for the delay in getting you this email,” he wrote. “The CSNJ board met over the weekend. It was a very contentious meeting, but in the end the board voted not to move forward with participating in the upcoming grant application. Personally, I feel that this is a short-sighted decision.”

Macasek could not be reached for this article. But in an interview two years ago, he sounded optimistic.

“We’ve been talking with the township about acquiring that property and fixing it up and making it a state-of-the-art headquarters for the Canal Society … and also a meeting and exhibition venue,” Macasek said in 2020. “We need to come to the right agreement with the township. We are just historical society after all, not a major corporation. We’d have to be able to afford to do this.”

Given all the work put into studying the structure and securing its placement on the historic registers, town officials were (not pleasantly) surprised at the CSNJ’s change of heart.

“We moved forward with the Canal Society and there was a lot of work done … with grant money,” Shepherd said. “At the very end, when we thought we were at the eleventh hour, the Canal Society - for lack of better term - backed out of the deal.”

No Bulldozers for Now

Lake Hopatcong Foundation Chairman Marty Kane, a historian, said he played a part in recommending the Lafayette School to the Canal Society. He expressed disappointment that the deal fell apart.

"I just went by there two days ago and pulled into the parking lot to stare at that building," Kane said.

Shepherd said it’s too early to talk about razing the structure, but he acknowledged “there’s a concern among the council about what potentially will happen to the building” if a tenant cannot be found.

“Now it’s in a stagnant position, not being utilized other than for storage,” Shepherd said. “The goal was always to have a tenant in the building. Certainly … down the road, if there is no tenant in sight, and we are unable to restore it, the town will have to make decisions whether the building stays or not stays. But, for now, the town has no interest in removing a historic building.”
