Here are five memorable quotes from Wayne residents in 2013.

“I am more disgusted at the way the administration has handled the communication than what has actually happened with Resource4Teachers. It’s almost more appalling that the administration waited almost one month to comment on this situation.” — Karen Veale, mother of a child who was allegedly abused by a substitute teacher.

“I always had a fuzzy goal at the end of getting back to work and getting back to taking care of my three kids and my wife. I never had any doubt that I would be back.” — Officer Robert Franco on returning to light duty after suffering a severe spinal cord injury during Super storm Sandy in 2012.

“I refuse to bow down to it. I don’t want to be a statistic. I said to myself ‘I don’t want to die at 27 so let’s do what we have to do to beat this thing’.” — Sean Fritts who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and has been battling the disease ever since.

“I will look at every decision thoroughly and make sure it is in the best interests of the students and taxpayers.” — Trustee-elect Cathy Kazan during a candidates night for residents running for election to Board of Education.

“[He] appeared to be under the influence of something.” — Witness to former high school quarterback Kevin Olsen after Olsen crashed the SUV he was driving into a tree and another vehicle.

“I am more disgusted at the way the administration has handled the communication than what has actually happened with Resource4Teachers,” Veal said. “It’s almost more appalling that the administration waited almost one month to comment on this situation.”
