March 27 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXV No. 46 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Feds charge BOE veep with fraud By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY The vice president of the Kearny Board of Education A Kearny school has been linked to a multi-million dollar mortgage fraud enterprise which federal law enforcement agents allege used fake documents and straw buyers to extract profits from Jersey Shore condominiums. John Leadbeater 54 a former town councilman is charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. A federal grand jury sitting in Camden issued an indictment dated March 20 alleging that Leadbeater and Daniel Cardillo 49 of Wildwood conspired with others to profit from the sale of waterfront condominiums overbuilt by financially distressed developers in Wildwood and Wildwood Crest ... by obtaining mortage loans for unqualified borrowers using fraudulent loan applications HUD (U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development)-1 Settlement Statements and other documents between May 2006 and August 2011.

Last Monday March 20 the Kearny Board of Education voted unanimously (Trustee John Leadbeater was absent) to fire the general contractor Brockwell & Carrington (B&C) of Towaco. The firm was terminated for convenience which according to the website Business Dictionary.com is a standard clause in government contracts which gives [a government entity] the right to unilaterally terminate [a] contract at any time with or without giving a reason. The contractor is generally entitled to a negotiated settlement for an equitable recovery of costs and losses incurred. Neither Board Counsel Kenneth Lindenfelser nor the board s Florham Park construction attorney Gary Werner returned phone messages to talk about the board s action. But in a phone interview last week Schools Superintendent Frank Ferraro said A Photos by Ron Leir Construction in and out of Kearny High School has been a thorn in the BOE s side for some time. see KHS page 16 Shop local get tax break By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY Kearny homeowners who are dedicated local shoppers may soon be getting a break on their property taxes. Because every ka ching heard on a retail register will if the town governing body approves signal a discount on a property owner s local tax bill. That s the premise of a Kearny Tax Reward program being cooked up by John Peneda who doubles as town Tax Assessor and Coordinator of the Kearny Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) program. Peneda said the plan is based on an initiative developed by Marlboro Township which reportedly pioneered the concept in concert with a company called Fincredit Inc. also based in Marlboro. Peneda who learned about it through a New Jersey State League of Municipalities publication has already talked up what he perceives as its merits with his UEZ board and now see SHOP page 34 14 201-991-1300 KEArny OFFICE 213 Kearny Ave Kearny new Jersey C21Semiaokearny Century21.com 201-460-8000 LyndhurSt OFFICE Semiao & Associates 761 ridge road Lyndhurst new Jersey C21Semiao Century21.com tO SEE Our Ad thIS wEEK pLEASE turn tO pAgE 22 27 02 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 Ex-coach pleads to sex charge West Hudson Publishing Company s Fastest Growing Free Weekly Newspaper Established 1887 Family Owned & Operated ormer Lyndhurst High School football coach Scott M.

The indictment returned by a Bergen County grand jury July 25 2012 alleges that on various dates between Oct. 1 2009 and March 30 2010 Rubinetti while working as a coach and physical education teacher for the Lyndhurst Board of Education engaged in sexual conduct including penetration and oral sex with the girl who was a Lyndhurst High School senior at the time. Additionally the indictment alleges that Rubinetti on or about Jan. 18 2012 tried to influence the student ... to testify or inform falsely and or withhold any testimony information document or thing .... Rubinetti s contract with the Lyndhurst Board of Education was terminated June 30 2012 after the board voted not to renew it. He was a non-tenured employee at the time according to board officials. The board then named Rubinetti s predecessor Joseph Castagnetti as the new high school football coach and assigned one of several new P.E. teachers to fill Rubinetti s teaching slot. During his 3-year tenure from 2008 to 2010 as the Golden Bears head coach Rubinetti guided the squad to records of 3-7 3-7 and 9-3 respectively.

So predicted Mayor Alberto Santos who told The Observer last week that the town has asked New Jersey Civil Service to certify [appointment] lists for police and fire [departments] the first of several steps that have to be taken toward eventual new hires. Only recently the federal government turned aside the town s application for a little more than 1 million in Staffing for Emergency & Fire Response funding to pay salaries and benefits for eight new firefighters for two years. After that the town would have had to shoulder the entire financial burden. In the application Fire Chief Steven Dyl said his depart- K Photos by Ron Leir Kearny Firefighter Edward Ryan staffs dispatch center on Maple St. In future civilians may be working here. ment currently at 87 members desperately needed more personnel having had to shut down one fire company in the past year for lack of sufficient firefighters while being called on for mutual aid by surrounding communities more and more frequently. Dyl further said that the town was appealing for federal aid because it like other municipalities in the state finds itself in a tight fiscal squeeze given the governor s mandated 2% cap on local spending. But now Santos said Kearny has no choice but to bite the fiscal bullet and look to its own resources to ensure that local residents and businesses are adequately protected against fire and crime. How many new cops and firefighters will be put on the town payroll depends on how much we have in the municipal budget and on the number of retirees in the Police and Fire Departments Santos said. My guess the mayor said is that there will be anywhere from four to eight [new hires] in each department. Salaries for new entry-level cops and firefighters run in the 40 000 range plus an additional 15 000 to 20 000 for benefits. Personnel numbers could drop even lower in both departments as early as this year when according to town personnel records a dozen members of the Fire Department and as many as 28 from the Police Department become eligible to put in their retirement papers after reaching 25 years of service. see HIRINGS page 17 04 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 Gourmet dinner & show a priceless treat By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY -What could be better than dinner and a show How about a free gourmet dinner and a free Broadway-caliber show And without the hassle of having to trek into New York Last Tuesday March 19 nearly 150 Kearny senior citizens were treated to both at Kearny High School thanks to the school s accomplished culinary students and the talented cast of this year s school musical Once On This Island. The dinner which began at 5 p.m. was open to any Kearny resident age 55 and over. Following the threecourse meal the honored guests were ushered into the auditorium to view a full the time of year the parsnips were uprooted from the soil. Parsnips are winter vegetables that can be dug from November to April he said. But the colder they remain the sweeter-tasting they get so the spring dug ones sitting in the winter-cold ground for months are the sweetest of all. The ones his students used for the bisque were dug just 12 days ago. As for the Amish chicken What makes a chicken Amish Do they wear little bonnets and refuse to be photographed It turned out that all the chickens the KHS kids cook come from a farm in Lancaster Pa. They are humanely raised and there are no hormones and no antibiotics used Barone said. They re like the chickens you would get in the 50s. Helping prepare the meal which was done from scratch over several days were the 21 students in Barone s culinary arts course which is offered only to juniors and seniors. Freshmen and sophomores can take basic cooking classes but culinary arts is on the elite level.

Council Member Carol Jean Doyle who is the governing body s liaison to the local senior community explained that the town used to host an annual senior prom and spaghetti dinner but eventually switched to the dinner show. Then a couple of years ago KHS guidance counselor Kathy Astrella came up with the idea of having the school s culinary students prepare the food. It was a way to showcase the students. Doyle said. Showcase them it does. The menu last week consisted of Spring Dug Parsnip Bisque with peppered bacon and basil oil Roasted Amish Chicken Supreme with giblet stuffing and French green beans and White Chocolate Bread Pudding with cranberry caramel. We needed no explanation regarding the dessert but the other two courses raised questions in our junk-food brain. We thought a dug might be the nickname of a kind of parsnip but KHS culinary arts teacher and chef Matt Barone kindly explained to us that spring dug referred to EFFECTIVE ALARM SYSTEMS SERVING THE COMMUNITY SINCE 1975 All types of alarms from the smallest home to the largest industrial complex at competitive prices Serving Northern New Jersey Competitive Pricing Free Estimates Fully Insured Authorized Security Dealer 201-998-0890 INJURED ON THE JOB Workers Compensation Attorney 75 Kip Avenue Rutherford NJ 07070 Phone 201-635-0300 E-mail CoachlawAJC yahoo.com 10 Andrew J.

The alert for the latest blaze at the Nature s Choice Corp. property at 1 Baler Blvd. just off the Belleville Pike was called in by an observant driver passing by on the N.J. Turnpike said Kearny Fire Chief Steve Dyl. Units from the Kearny and North Arlington Fire Departments responded to the 8 50 p.m. alarm and the blaze was declared under control at 11 p.m. Firefighters remained at the scene however until 2 10 a.m. The Jersey City Fire Department provided coverage of the towns while the local units were on site. The incident commander at the scene was KFD Deputy Chief Joe Viscuso. The investigation into the cause of the latest conflagration has been turned over an NJMC landfill straddling the Kearny North Arlington border has been the site of recurring fires which have been imposing a strain on firefighter overtime which has been a source of concern for us for several years. Commenting on the latest blaze Santos noted If there are multiple visits to a site and repeated fires we have the ability to assess a fee against the tenant. There is no word as to whether such a fee will be assessed but on Friday fire officials met with the NJMC. As a result Dyl said the Division of Fire Safety will work with Nature s Choice the NJMC and the Kearny and North Arlington Fire Departments in an attempt to resolve the problems. On Monday the commission issued a brief statement noting The NJMC will continue to cooperate and work together with all parties involved.

State investigators are also looking into the March 4 fire which lit up the skies over the meadows and resulted in a brush fire that burned several acres authorities reported. Nature s Choice operates a composting facility on the land which is leased from the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission. Over the course of 20 years the property apparently has been leased to a succession of private firms. Following the earlier fire Kearny Mayor Alberto Santos said the property on More than 100 people turned out at the Meadowlands Environment Center in Lyndhurst on March 10 to learn about wolves and to greet Tecomah a 10-month old female wolf.

It was a lovely event but I was not completely at ease. Gourmet food frightens me. And I am intimidated by the people who can cook it. I cannot cook at all. I do not want to learn. I have survived this long on take-out and eating out and microwave tasties and I am not about to change. My mother was a great cook. Nothing gourmet but the best home-cooking you d ever want. She was Irish and she made the most delicious lasagna. To this day I will not order lasagna out because no place even the finest Italian restaurant could prepare it as well as she did. I heard once that if your mother was a great cook one of two things happened Either you also became an accomplished cook because you learned at her knee. Or you don t cook at all because you never had to learn you just sat down at the table and ate wonderful food. File me firmly in the latter category. When I first moved back to Jersey it was into an apartment that had just been given a completely renovated kitchen. I lived there three years and the brand-new oven was not turned on once. The week before I moved out I suddenly became ashamed of myself and decided to bake a casserole using a recipe from one of the many unread cookbooks I possess. (Friends are always giving them to me as gifts -- as a form of intervention. It doesn t work.) Anyway I assembled the ingredients and turned on the virginal oven to pre-heat it. I then left the room. When I returned both the kitchen and the living room were filled with smoke. Nothing was ablaze luckily. It was just all the dust that had accumulated inside the oven being incinerated. I ordered Chinese that night. Because I don t cook I also have problems in supermarkets. I once arrived at the checkout counter with a cabbage that I had thought was a head of lettuce. The clerk explained. I went to the produce section put back the cabbage grabbed a lettuce and started to go to checkout again. But I stopped in my tracks and went back to the cabbage bin and retrieved the one I had left there. Its having been selected and then abandoned I was afraid it would feel rejected. (Hey How do you know cabbages don t have feelings ) As I recounted in an earlier column concerning pet clams I have always been lucky enough to have had significant others who don t give a hoot about my lack of cooking skills. Either they were cooks themselves or they also preferred dining out. In NYC where I resided many years this is not uncommon. But I have come to realize that not cooking can be a drawback to finding a soul- mate in the Garden State. One day I was in the Midland Dairy picking up essentials Pepsi cold cuts Entenmann s donuts ice cream. As I was getting ready to depart the woman behind the deli counter said Aren t you forgetting something What I asked. Where are your White Castle cheeseburgers I thanked her profusely for catching my oversight and then I heard another customer say She reminds me of my uncle. Pepsi and White Castle cheeseburgers for dinner every night. Really I said. This could be a match made in heaven. Is he married And she said He s dead.

There were no injuries to the occupants or firefighters but two pet cats rescued from the house did not survive. We got them out but it was too late said Kearny Fire Chief Steve Dyl. Dyl said the alarm came in at 9 08 a.m. and units from Kearny East Newark and Jersey City responded to the scene at 142 Schuyler near Hoyt St. The blaze in the two-story wood-frame home was declared under control at 10 27 a.m. Dyl said the Kearny police evacuated the occupants as firefighters were arriving on the scene. One resident has been relocated by the Red Cross and the other four are reportedly staying with friends. The fire is thought to have started in a rear stairwell but the exact cause is under investigation by the KFD Bureau of Combustibles under the direction of Acting Chief Inspector John Donovan. Although there was severe damage to the home Dyl said that an agressive interior attack by the KFD prevented the fire from destroying the entire building and extending to a nearby building. The members of the KFD once again went above and beyond expectations to try to save the structure the chief said. Dyl said a building on Hoyt St. received minor exterior damage due to radiant heat. KFD Deputy Chief John Harris was the incident commander at the scene. The Harrison and North Arlington Fire Departments provided coverage to Kearny while the town s fire units were battling the blaze. On March 20 at 8 p.m. the KFD was called to a chimney fire in a one-family home at 197 Brighton Ave. Kearny was assisted by firefighters from Newark and North Arlington because the other KFD units were in Bayonne helping that city s firefighters battle a fouralarm blaze.

And yet for others the sheer thought of going to a health and sports club is enough to cause nausea. To help that the folks over at King s Court are opening the club s doors each Saturday in April so members of the public -- especially those in and around the Lyndhurst area -- can get the King s Court experience free of charge as if a full-fledged member. The health and sports club is undergoing a multi-milliondollar upgrade. And the club s marketing director Kristin Degenhardt says the idea of opening the doors stems from the club s desire to let everyone know about the club and what it has to offer -- especially for those who might be otherwise reluctant to join a gym. Those who take part won t just get to see and use the facilities Degenhardt said. They ll be able to attend classes meet with professional trainers learn about healthy lifestyles and more. They can take part in boot camps and aerobics and it ll be a chance for them to be the best they can be. Here are the classes available at King s Court each Saturday (including the Saturdays when the doors will be open for residents to try the club out for free). 9 a.m. -- Steppin Out with Alissa. 10 a.m. -- Body Sculpt with Alissa. 10 15 a.m. -- Spin with Jackie. 11 30 a.m. -- Cardio Belly Dancing with Shevon.

Although officially introduced just a bit more than a month ago on Feb. 18 Milania apparently has been gathering its own loyal fans at a rapid pace. More than one of the women who attended the event told us it was love of the product as much as affection for Giudice that led them to Kearny that day. Milania is named after one of Giudice s four daughters -- the others being Gia Gabriella and Audriana. It was chosen by a vote of fans on Facebook and Twitter Giudice told us noting It fits Giudice also known for her appearance on Celebrity Apprentice and as the author of three best-selling cookbooks could have lent her creds to any number of products so why hair care She told us the choice was the result of personal experience all the damage her own hair was suffering thanks to all the straightening irons and the curling irons and the blow dryers used to prep her for her TV appearances. I wanted three good products she said and sought the help of friend and beauty-industry guru Jerel Sabella who developed formulas for the Milania line the Total Vitamin Leave-In Treatment the Keratin Heat Protector and the Argan Oil Infusion Serum. All of them designed specifically to increase moisture and shine in heat-damaged hair. Salon owner David Antunes said Milania was first brought to his attention by his sister Elizabeth Aranjo of Morris Plains who raved about it. He started offering it to his clientele and we had such a great success selling it it has just blown off the shelves. Antunes contacted Giudice via social media regarding Milania s instant popularity at the salon and the Meet & Greet was arranged. The products were for sale of course ( 24.99 apiece or 49.99 for the set of three) but the event Antunes said was also a great way for her to meet her fans. Giudice publicist Dina Elliot noted that the Kearny visit was among the first in a series they have planned to promote Milania. Teresa loves the events Elliot said. She is so grateful and appreciative of her fans support and she loves hearing the feedback. We had one more question for Giudice What can you tell us about the new season of Real Housewives It s definitely a season you don t want to miss she said. She s not giving away any secrets. Except how to glamorize your hair.

ARLINGTON T 201-997-0577 F 201-997-6477 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 11 Lyndhurst honors the man behind the striped top hat This month Americans celebrate the birth of the famous Dr. Seuss author of The Cat in the Hat Green Eggs and Ham and The Lorax among other children s classics. All schools within the Lyndhurst district are honoring Dr. Seuss s legacy with related activities. Mrs. Marron a fifth grade teacher at Roosevelt School said she is decorating her classroom door from top to bottom in tribute to Dr. Seuss. She said the class will read Dr. Seuss s Oh the Places You ll Go and discuss the places the students intend to go both as a class and as individuals. Marron said her students will also be completing Dr. Seuss word searches and puzzles. Samantha Miller a student in Marron s class said her favorite Dr. Seuss book is The Lorax. I like it because it teaches you to help the Earth stay clean Miller said. I like [the Dr. Seuss theme] because we are able to do fun projects in our class. Not only do younger children read Dr. Seuss books but high school students enjoy his works as well. Freshman Nic DiTommaso said he has been a fan of Dr. Seuss ever since he was a child. My favorite one probably has to be The Cat in the Hat. That was the book that I always read when I was younger DiTommaso said. Along with reading the books he said he enjoys watching the film adaptations. During March LHS students will notice Dr. Seussrelated activities woven into their various courses. English teacher Mrs. DeMarco said each class period she will be presenting a quote related to Dr. Seuss. There will be free writing activities that will require students to respond to the morals that can be found in FIRES from 07 the chimney with some minor extension into the walls. By utilizing its thermal-imaging cameras the KFD was able to detect the specific hot spots avoiding unnecessary damage to the walls Dyl said. Firefighters had to open some walls the chief noted but there were not a lot of holes. The fire was declared under control at 8 40 p.m. No injuries were reported and the residents were permitted to reoccupy their home. KFD Deputy Chief Ozzie Osborn was the commander at the scene. Dyl said the probable cause was a partially clogged chimney and he used the incident to remind homeowners that it is important that your chimneys fireplaces and heating chimneys be maintained and serviced annually by a professional.

In the classrooms of LHS students will reflect on the simple lessons taught in the Seuss stories and the character traits represented by these characters and apply them to their current learning. There is much more to Dr. Seuss than most people realize. For example few know that Theodore Seuss Giesel is the birth name of this American-born writer and poet. Dr. Seuss is well-known for his wacky characters. Have you ever noticed that many of them wear tall crazy hats Not only do these hats add to the characters appearance but they also held personal meaning since Dr. Seuss was a hat fanatic. According to an article featured in the New York Times Dr. Seuss collected hundreds of hats of all kinds and kept them hidden behind a bookcase in his home in San Diego. Dr. Seuss s hobbies and exotic characters came to an end when he died of throat cancer in 1991 at the age of 87. His legacy will live on for years to come. 288 RIVER ROAD NORTH ARLINGTON 551-580-7307 A Long Time Tradition Continues in East Newark...

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 13 He could run but he couldn t hide KEARNY -A Jersey City drag-racer who led Kearny cops on a round-about pursuit before they terminated it for safety reasons might have thought he had gotten away on the highway to haven. But thanks to some good police work he ended up parked in the Hudson County Jail. Shortly after midnight on Monday March 18 KPD Officers Tom Pontrella and Glenn Reed were on patrol in South Kearny when they came upon several vehicles drag racing at Pennsylvania and Jacobus Aves. There was also a large contingent of smaller sports cars parked and ready to race Police Chief John Dowie said. As the officers stopped to disburse the crowd one of the drivers smashed his Honda into the front of the marked KPD SUV then backed up and started to flee down Pennsylvania Ave. Dowie said. As Pontrella and Reed gave chase the driver reportedly turned off his headlights but the cops were able to keep him in sight as he led them along Fish House Road over the Wittpenn Bridge into Jersey City south on Rt. 440 and then over the Hackensack River Bridge heading back into Kearny. On the bridge the cops ended the chase when the Honda began to take on an excessive rate of speed Dowie said. While the pursuit was going on. backup officers had been dispatched to the South Kearny drag strip to interview witnesses and collect information. Thanks to that info and to video footage from cameras along the route of the chase police developed a probable suspect whose photo was ID d by Reed and Pontrella. Last Friday morning Kearny Det. Michael Gonzalez and Det. Lt. Anthony Gouveia located the suspect 24-year-old Kadeem Browne of Jersey City in his hometown and brought him back to Kearny where he was booked on a charge of eluding police. Browne was being held on 25 000 bail. Other recent reports from the Kearny police blotter included the following incidents many involving demon rum (or demon vodka or some such) March 14 P.O. John Fabula responding to the report of a motorcycle accident on the 400 block of Elm St. at 7 p.m. arrived to find the bike on the ground and a highly agitated man walking in circles around it. The biker reportedly told Fabula that someone must have put oil on the street or thrown a can under his bike. In any case police said he had managed to ride only about 20 feet from where he started his journey before falling off. Fabula ruled out alcohol as the cause but felt the man was under the influence of something and the biker then admitted he had ingested medication Dowie said. EMS was summoned and Ryan Decker 23 of Livingston was charged with DUI careless driving and being under the influence of a CDS. At 11 30 p.m. P.O. Ben Wuelfing was on patrol at Schuyler and Midland Aves. when he observed a red Mazda with Kentucky plates run the red light at the intersection and proceed south on Schuyler at a high rate of speed. The officer pursued the car which made a series of evasive turns onto a number of side streets before being brought to a halt on Garfield Ave. After he reportedly failed the field sobriety tests the driver was taken to headquarters given an Alcotest and charged with DWI DWI in a school zone underage DWI careless driving and failure to observe a traffic signal. He was identified as 20-year-old Kearny resident Ilya Harbacheuski. March 15 Chief Dowie driving on the 100 block of Devon St. at 3 p.m. observed an apparently intoxicated individual sleeping in the doorway of a home. P.O. Brian Wisely responded to the report and persuaded the man to move along. Moments later and a block away came a report of a disorderly person near West Hudson Park and in view of a group of schoolchildren and their parents. Wisely and P.O. Tom Pontrella cautioned him as to his behavior and offered medical aid but the man refused and became uncooperative and confrontational police said. Placed in the patrol car he allegedly tried to kick out the back window. Arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct was Arthur Smith 48 of Kearny who was also issued summonses for creating a disturbance and failure to obey a police officer. At 8 p.m. on the 800 block of Kearny Ave. P.O. Pete Jahera came upon two cars that apparently had been involved in an accident. The crash he learned had just occurred on the Belleville Pike where one vehicle exiting a driveway was hit by another. Both then proceeded to the avenue and pulled over. Police said there were no injuries but Jahera noted that one driver nearly fell while exiting his vehicle and he then failed a field sobriety test. Charged with DWI and careless driving was John Keenan 81 of North Arlington. see KPD page 24 North Arlington s Little Secret... the angry coffee bean coffeehouse & cafe 89 ridge road (201) 772-5554 Breakfast - Lunch- Dinner Desserts - Micro Roasted Coffee Open Mic Nights Catering for Office & Home Sunday Brunch Menu & Dinner Menu (Closed Easter Sunday) facebook.com theangrycoffeebean MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS FOR 10% OFF TRAYS TO- GO EASTER SUNDAY Rated Excellence by NY Times The Spiekermann family proudly present Always in Good Taste Italian Ice Cream Window Now OPEN FREE FREE NORTH ARLINGTON 201-246-0100 11- 3 5 R I V E R R O A D HEIGHTS PLAZA VALID ALL WEEK LIMIT 1 DISCOUNT PER CHECK PER VISIT.

Fincredit would send Kearny a check for the total amount of the rebates. A small percentage of the tax credits collected would go to Fincredit. I like the program said Peneda because it helps local businesses increase their sales volume and helps property owners reduce their taxes. Peneda said that Kearny Federal Savings Bank has expressed interest in providing the reward cards to the town and if that happened that would be one expense we don t have to have. Fincredit Managing Director Carmine DeFalco told The Observer that the company can provide local retailers a swipe machine for 160 including shipment and programming although for low-volume businesses we can process transactions online for nothing from our web portal. Participating businesses would get free listings on the company s web portal which according to DeFalco gets a lot of traffic. Since mid-September 2012 when it helped Marlboro set up its reward system the program has generated local purchases of 240 000 for 41 participating businesses and more than 13 000 in tax savings for 2 000 registered households DeFalco said. But those numbers are going to grow he said. We re hoping for between 70 and 80 businesses to sign up. When Marlboro homeowners register online they can check to see which businesses are in the reward program he said. DeFalco said Fincredit is working with several other New Jersey municipalities to set up similar reward programs. Bayonne has given us the goahead and we re working out the design now he said. Other communities looking to launch in about two months include Pequannock Caldwell Highland Park and Voorhees. We re also talking to a town in Massachusetts looking at the concept he said. And they may well be adding Kearny to the list.

Romano is a licensed see AROUND TOWN page 36 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 KHS from 01 that the 37.3 million project has transitioned into a different direction. We just needed to restructure the project because as currently constituted it became unaffordable. Ferraro said that if the project were allowed to continue on its current course we d be substantially over budget. The work is funded by outside government sources mostly from the Federal Aviation Administration and Port Authority of New York & New Jersey with the balance from the N.J. Department of Education. Ferraro said he s kept all three agencies in the loop about the board s plans to disengage from B&C and they ve gone along. BOE President Bernadette McDonald said the move was made on the recommendation of our construction counsel in conjunction with the board attorney. [The project] is a real mess.... Brockwell & Carrington didn t do the job they needed to do.... We re trying to salvage what we have so we don t have to go all the way back. Asked about the students and teachers rotating through classroom trailers parked on the KHS front lawn McDon- ald said They ll have to stay. We can t put them back in the building. She couldn t say how long that arrangement would continue. Ferraro inherited the mess when he was appointed as the district s chief school administrator late last year. One reason he was hired was his prior experience in guiding several large-scale school construction projects in New York State. From now on Ferraro said the board will be acting as its own general contractor with help from Epic Management Inc. of Piscataway previously hired as the project s construction management firm. 1st Easter Drawing Participating Ages 6 years to 10 years old Drawing must be submitted on a letter size paper by March 28 and name of child March 26 to be written on the back.

Address ....................................................................................... Phone ........................................................................................... Ferraro who has quickly gotten himself up to speed on the stalled project said that plans were initially developed back in 2004 and between then and [start of construction in] 2010 building code changes happened and that created a lot of change orders in the plans and that s why things slowed up. Now Ferraro said We re pulling back we re having our engineering and architectural plans redone so when we go out to bid [for the remaining work] our subcontractors [heating ventilating and air-conditioning plumbing and electric as examples] will report to the construction manager so we have tighter control over the job. The process of having Epic and a third party [the general contractor] had become cumbersome Ferraro said and we ll have better control if we do it this way. Asked when he anticipated that bidding process to begin Ferraro declined to give a specific date but said it would happen pretty soon. We re getting all the information from our architects and structural engineers. Now nearing the midpoint of its third year the project is clearly behind schedule. Structural steel was due to be delivered last summer when the district had hoped to get a big portion of the work done when students and staff were away but that didn t happen. Ferraro estimated that to date 18% of the project is complete. Asked how much had been spent Ferraro said he didn t know the answer. I m going to be proposing some things to the board to check on finances he said. Could he predict how long the job would take to complete Ferraro said We re going to be putting out a timeline once we get our [bid] proposals back. I understand we ve had timelines before and they weren t accurate. When he has a more definite idea about the direction of the work Ferraro said he ll find a way to get the word out to the high school community. I want to get the students staff s and public s trust back. To that end Ferraro said Safety is our first consideration. I ve spoken with the town s building inspectors and our Director of Buildings and Grounds [Mark Bruscino] works with them very closely to make sure everything is up to code. We re taking no shortcuts and we re making sure we don t jeopardize the safety of the people in that building. Ferraro said that any payments that may still be due to B&C will be done through negotiations under a profit margin formula. The lawyers and accountants are working that out. B&C didn t return a phone message for comment. Aside from soundproofing the school against the persistent noise from passing plane traffic mostly from Liberty International Airport in Newark whose flight paths take them over the West Hudson area the KHS project includes the renovation of more than 200 000 square feet of space across two buildings on five floors involving asbestos removal demolition roofing windows and new mechanical and electrical systems plus construction of a 30 000 square foot six-story addition within the existing building s light court and restoration of 80 000 square feet of the school s exterior masonry and field houses which involves repointing and replacement of brick fa ade restoration and anchoring of limestone moldings and cornices and replacement of parapets and lintels. The project has been fraught with obstacles literally from the get-go when the BOE s initial contract award to Dobko Inc. in September 2010 was challenged by B&C and the litigation dragged on in the state appellate court until a ruling came in June 2011 awarding B&C the contract. Then in October 2011 the board fired the project s New York architect DF Gibson eventually replacing that firm with Sen Architects of New York. Along the way friction arose between the district and the town as the Kearny Construction Department concluded that certain aspects of the work on the project failed to comply with revised building codes. And now the BOE has scrapped the project s general contractor. Asked how the latest incident was affecting morale among his students and staff KHS Principal Al Gilson said that other than an updating of KHS staff by Ferraro and Buscino it hasn t been a topic of conversation at the school. We ve been moving forward accomplishing a lot of other things at the school he added. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 17 HIRINGS from 03 About 70% of the potential police retirees and about 60% of the prospective fire retirees would come from superior officer ranks with the balance from rank-and-file said Town Administrator Michael Martello. If everybody who could go did leave the Police Department roster would fall from its current 97 to 69 and the Fire Department from 87 to 75 with the latter drop likely forcing more company closures. Again though Martello and Santos said they have no way of knowing what the outcome will be particularly since even if an employee applies for a retirement pension he or she can still opt to withdraw the application at the last minute. Complicating the equation Santos said is that in both Police and Fire Departments we have dedicated employ- ees who enjoy their jobs and who don t like to leave after 25 years (minimum service time needed for retirement). On the other hand he said others may prefer to take their pension at the current health co-pay rates rather than face mandated higher co-pays in future years. The decline of personnel through attrition in the town s uniformed ranks mirrors the hits taken through layoffs and retirements among its civilian work force. Overall Santos said the town s total work force currently in the 340 range has declined by 52 since 2009. In another public safety development the town could be looking to hire non-uniformed employees to serve as roundthe-clock dispatchers to handle fire-related calls at the Fire Department communications center on Maple St. Santos said the town is investigating the costs of a civilian dispatch system and to that end has [notified] Civil Service that we re interested in hiring for that position now that the town has decided to abandon a July 2012 agreement to contract with the City of East Orange for shared fire emergency and non-emergency dispatch services. Kearny and East Orange had signed a one-year deal through June 30 2013 with Kearny paying 6 500 for dedicated phone lines and software with options to renew for two more years at annual costs of about 90 000. Since the dispatching service was to be provided by East Orange Fire Headquarters Kearny arranged for what Santos described as partial installation of dedicated transmission lines and software to link the two communities but last fall s SuperStorm Sandy exposed shortfalls in the system according to Santos. The system was not yet in use at the time the mayor said but if it had been we would ve had coverage gaps in the service. Doing the job in-house Santos said we can rely on our own communications system and technology which didn t fail during Sandy. Santos said the town legal department is assessing recovery costs from the East Orange contract. In the meantime Santos said the town would likely switch from the current system of firefighters handling fire calls to civilians. We re looking at the number of shifts hours and number of employees required per shift and whether we d use part-time or full-time employees he added. Santos acknowledged that while the town would like to fill several clerical and secretarial vacancies in various departments the priority is on public safety-related positions. The governing body will have to find a way to fund the new jobs even with a municipal budget which as introduced several weeks ago would hike taxes on an average house ( 100 000 assessment) by an estimated 140 just on the municipal tax portion. Although overall employee salaries are down employee health coverage and pension costs are up as are the county s solid waste tipping fees which at 100 per ton are reportedly the highest in the state town officials say.

Winning 19 games is huge in Lyndhurst history said Catanese who begins her fourth season as the Golden Bears head coach. We went far last year but we hope to go a little further this year. If the Golden Bears can win more than 19 games it would mean the makings of a championship season a place where the Golden Bears could legitimately land come June. Maybe the main reason why Catanese is so high on her team is the fact that she has both parts of an experienced and talented battery back and that s not a bad place to start. Leading the returnees is senior right-handed pitcher Casey Zdanek who has done anything and everything for the Lyndhurst program since her freshman year. The other key returnee is senior catcher Julieann Schneidenbach who has been a mainstay behind the plate for four seasons. Both were All-NJIC Meadowlands Division selections last season. They ve been together and gotten stronger together for all four years Catanese said. It s huge having them both back. Julie is remembered a lot because she has that last name and had her brother Dave play baseball before her. But she has a presence behind the plate like no one else. She s a great hitter and a clutch hitter. Added Catanese Casey is like the silent killer. She s the ace in the hole. People come up against her and they re amazed. Together they re something to watch. The terrific twosome will also anchor the Golden Bears batting order with Schneidenbach batting third and Zdanek cleanup. I m very confident with the two of them there Catanese said. Zdanek pitched to a 1.37 ERA last year and won all 19 games. She averaged almost eight strikeouts per game and batted .452. That s what is called a solid season. Schneidenbach batted .376 and offers the solid defense behind the plate. She s taking it more seriously now Catanese said. She s the strongest person I ve seen in my four years. see VIEW page Photos by Jim Hague Kearny s Jim Mullen is all smiles after winning his second straight New Jersey scholastic state championship.

You can call me Jim he Mullen with his floppy curly said. blond hair and acting much So there it is Jim Mullen more mature than his age By Jim Hague Observer Sports Writer A recalled the feeling of standing atop the podium as a state champion once again. It was awesome and amazing Mullen said. I was sixth when I was six but then I took first in the state at age seven. So how does a young kid get so proficient at a sport at an early age I don t know Mullen said. It all started innocently for Mullen. A well-rounded athlete who plays baseball basketball and football in Kearny Recreation programs went one day to see his cousin Jose Sanchez wrestle in the Kearny Rec program. When I watched it I knew I liked it Mullen said. One day see mUllEn next page 20 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MARCH 27 2013 MULLEN from 19 I practiced with my cousin and I wanted to try it. I started liking it a lot. So at age 5 Mullen gave wrestling a try. I didn t know all the moves but I wanted to learn. His father Jim Mullen Sr. who is active in coaching different sports in Kearny remembers his son s first tournament. It was at Queen of Peace the elder Mullen said. He lost two in a row so I sat him down and gave him a heartfelt speech. After I was done he said Dad can I get Dippin Dots now I thought he was going to be upset that he lost but he said It s just for fun right I didn t know if wrestling was going to be his sport. But Jim Mullen liked the sport so much that he went to practice with the Kearny Rec program at least four times a week. Because of his size Mullen is constantly wrestling with kids older and bigger which definitely helps come time to compete in statewide tournaments. Usually the kids I practice with have been wrestling for a long time Mullen said. That s how I get better. I have no fear going up against the older kids. I love the sport. I can t get enough of it. Because Mullen is a largersized kid he has to maintain his weight in order to reach the 95-pound weight limit. So Mullen has a strict diet. I eat apples and drink a lot of water Mullen said. I eat oranges. I do a lot of push-ups and sit-ups to help me lose weight. It is a little disturbing that I have to do it but it s just part of the sacrifice of the sport. Mullen already has a goal in mind. I want to wrestle for Kearny High School he says. That news has to make Kearny wrestling coach Tony Carratura very happy although Mullen has five more years of grade school before Carratura gets a chance to work with him. Mullen was asked what his favorite wrestling move was. I like head locks Mullen said. I get points by being on top. I wrestle older kids that are strong so I have to use head locks. Mullen is also a fine football player. He was the quarterback on the Kearny Generals team that had its best season in 22 years. He plays baseball in the Kearny Little League and was recently selected to play for perennial power Rick s Auto Body. Mullen is a pitcher and infielder in baseball. It s really amazing all the things he s able to do the elder Mullen said. I hate to say it because he s my son but the sky s the limit for him. The younger Mullen was proud of his achievements. Yeah I m impressed Mullen said. I know that this is only the start. I m on to bigger and better things. But what about the curly floppy hair When he puts the head gear on before a match the hair goes in about 13 different directions. I like my hair Mullen said. I m not going to change that. People notice me for my hair. They also notice what he does on the wrestling mat. As he turns just nine years old Mullen has two state championships already. It s safe to say that this young man has a very bright future.

At shortstop is junior Grace Tomko who does everything in every sport she plays. Be it soccer basketball or softball Tomko is a presence. She s the real deal Catanese said of her leadoff hitter. On a whole Grace may be our best hitter. If she gets on base with Casey and Julie coming up we re going to score a lot of runs and be a force to be reckoned with. I have a lot of confidence in them.

I definitely like this team s chances Catanese said. I don t want to put any added pressure on them but with Casey and Julie I think we re pretty good. I think Casey and Julie will have monstrous seasons. We have to go out and play well to get where we were last year. Nothing is guaranteed.

But several members of that team have moved on thanks to graduation. We lost seven players to graduation said third-year head baseball coach Sean Dolaghan. We lost all our starting pitchers. We had so much pitching depth last year so it s extremely tough to lose that many. Gone are standouts like Anthony Ferriero and Felipe Flores who have both joined the pitching staff at FDUFlorham.

However Dolaghan doesn t have his head between his legs sobbing about the upcoming season which begins April 1 against Leonia. We have some good young arms that are ready to step in Dolaghan said. Dolaghan is high on the potential of his young staff. One of those young hurlers is junior Sebastian Sanchez. I m looking for him to be the ace Dolaghan said.

Sanchez missed most of last season due to a hip injury but he s back and healthy. Another of the young arms is the coach s cousin Tom Dolaghan. He throws strikes as well the coach Dolaghan said. He s grown a little got a little stronger and has more pop on his fastball. He also throws a knuckleball and it s not bad. It has a lot of movement. Junior Moises Roque will also be a member of the staff. He might throw harder than anyone else Dolaghan said. If he could just throw strikes more consistently. He has to work on that. He s very raw but has a lot of talent. Sophomore Joshua Williams is another quality hurler and the team s lone southpaw. He doesn t throw super hard but he keeps batters off balance with his off-speed stuff Dolaghan said. He has a nice changeup and throws strikes. Emil Zorrilla is the one that the Blue Tide pitchers will be throwing to and Zorrilla is all that and more. The senior made All-State Group I last year and batted .425. He can smash the ball but he s much better defensively Dolaghan said. He s a great defensive catcher. No one can bother to attempt to steal on him.

At second base Dolaghan can choose from either Kishan Patel a junior or promising freshman Marquis Valentin. Marquis can hit Dolaghan said. He s a player. He s just a little rough around the edges. There will be a rotation of players at shortstop and third base depending upon who is pitching. Dolaghan and Roque will share shortstop duties while Sanchez and Roque will be at third base. We ll rotate them around Dolaghan said. But our pitchers all hit. Roque will be our leadoff hitter and Tommy (Dolaghan) will bat second. Alex Ruccatano a senior is in left field. Junior Adam Huseinovic remains in center field and will be the Blue Tide s cleanup hitter. He s been with the varsity since he was a freshman Dolaghan said. We re going to rely on him big time. He s our X factor. If he has a good year we will too. The right field duties are up in the air right now between seniors Daniel Rueda and An- thony Williams the brother of Joshua and Freddy Alcala and junior Justin Thomas. Sophomore Miguel Zorrilla the brother of Emil will stay with the varsity and may serve as times as the designated hitter. But Dolaghan likes the makeup of his team. We definitely have a good chance to be pretty good Dola- ghan said. We have a couple of guys who can hit the ball and our pitchers are solid. I think a lot of what we do will be defensively. But I like our chances a lot. The Blue Tide begins the season with Leonia on Monday Lyndhurst on Wednesday then independent games against Snyder of Jersey City and Science Park of Newark. N. Arlington Lights it up Blue for autism The North Arlington mayor and council are encouraging borough residents to support autism awareness by displaying a blue light outside their home on April 2 the official national Light it up Blue Day for the fight against autism. Councilman Tom Zammatore who has an autistic child said autism is a devastating and all too common disease for families and children and more research needs to be devoted to its causes and cures. Autism is very prevalent in this region and I appreciate residents who take the time to support autism awareness so researchers and institutions will hopefully someday develop a cure for this horrible affliction that robs children of their childhood. said Zammatore. Mayor Peter Massa signed a proclamation making April Autism Awareness Month in North Arlington. He is encouraging residents to use blue light bulbs outside their homes for the entire month to commemorate the effort to bring awareness to the devastating disease. The mayor said blue autism lights can be purchased at Home Depot stores for a nominal fee of about 2. Councilman Joseph Bianchi noted that resident Christie Gilmartin is an activist for Autism awareness. Her 4-year old-son William was diagnosed with autism when he was 2 years old. Bianchi met with Christie at a recent council meeting and pledged to support her struggle to raise and autistic child. The disease is heartbreaking to parents like Christie and I admire her courage and effort to fight for autism awareness said Bianchi. I would love to see North Arlington lead the way in lighting up the town blue for Autism Awareness Month. Gilmartin will be participating in an event Walking for Autism Speaks May 19 at Bergen County Community College. A recent study published by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) indicates autism now affects one in 88 children (one in 54 boys) -- a sharp increase from the previous numbers released in a 2009 study that showed one in 110 children were afflicted. In New Jersey the rate of autism is even higher. A study published last year by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey found one of every 57 children in the state had autism in 2006 compared with one in 94 just four years earlier.

Michael Gonzalez were on patrol at at noon when they observed two men sharing a bottle of Pride & Glory vodka while walking on Kearny Ave. near Stuyvesant Ave. Both guzzlers were issued summonses for drinking in public but one was also taken into custody after a warrant check showed he was wanted by Linden police said. He was identified as Richard Hester 49 of Kearny. March 17 Another incident apparently involving mid-day imbibing was reported at 11 30 a.m. when P.O. Steve Hroncich responded to a radio call concerning a dangerous driver heading south on Schuyler Ave. near Oakwood Ave. The officer observed a blue Honda travelling erratically crossing the center line and heading into oncoming traffic police said. Hroncich with backup by P.O. Adriano Marques stopped it at Wilson Ave. and reportedly found the driver to have slurred speech and a scent of alcohol about his person. Arrested and charged with DWI careless driving and refusal to take an Alcotest was Robert Ramsey 27 of Upper Darby Pa. March 19 At 3 30 p.m. P.O. Sean Kelly was dispatched to the area of Bunny Hill (Afton St. and Hillside Ave.) on a report of a disorderly intoxicated man with a dog (which luckily was neither disorderly nor intoxicated). He arrived to find a large individual who was covered in mud and standing near a vehicle parked against the flow of traffic. The dog was running free dragging its leash behind it. Approached by Kelly the man reportedly announced I m drunk began laughing and then fell to the ground. EMS and backup Officer Chris Levchak were sent to the scene but the man became upset about the ambulance became profane and belligerent fell again and when arrested for DWI began to fight punched Levchak in the chest and resisted being cuffed police reported. Charged with DWI refusing an Alcotest aggressive assault on a police officer and resisting arrest was 64-yearold Newark resident Edmond Morris. The dog was retrieved and turned over to Morris daughter. March 20 At 5 15 a.m. P.O. Levchak responded to the report of a shoplifting-turned-robbery at WalMart where two individuals had allegedly assaulted store security personnel while fleeing with the stolen goods including a Wal-Mart vest and a box of condoms. Levchak broadcast a description of the getaway car a red Cadillac and its direction of flight. P.O. Derek Hemphill spotted the vehicle heading east on Harrison Ave. unsuccessfully attempted to stop it and pursued it onto Rt. 280 West. Because of the icy road conditions he terminated the chase but did get the license LEE TCM Health Center Acupuncture & Acupressure (Massage) Chinese Herbs Foot Reflexology Chinese Food Nutrition Weiping Li O.M.D & Ph.D Licensed Acupuncturist in NJ NY Certified Chinese Herbalist Over 20 Yrs Experience www.leetcmhealthcenter.com plate number. Security tapes from Wal-Mart led the officers to suspect that one of the robbers had been involved with the KPD at another store Chief Dowie said. With info from Hemphill and after viewing the surveillance footage Det. Ray Lopez developed a suspect comparing a recent arrest photo to the person on the tapes. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Omar Greene 18 of Newark who was picked up the morning of March 22 by Essex County authorities and taken to the Green St. Jail in Newark to await transfer to Kearny on robbery charges. Officer John Fabula and Sgt. Anthony Limite went to the Marshall s lot on Passaic Ave. at 8 p.m. on the report of two suspicious individuals one of whom explained his presence by stating he was waiting for a bus. Which is odd because buses don t stop in the Marshall s lot. A warrant check showed that the man Jerome Thomas 43 of Rahway was wanted by both Rahway and Clark and a search of his person produced what appeared to be a crack pipe police said. He was arrested on the warrants charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and held on 5 000 bail. The other suspicious person was questioned and released. Members of the Vice Squad were at Bergen and Kearny Aves. at 9 20 p.m. when they observed what appeared to be a hand-to-hand drug transaction between alleged customer 23-year-old Barbara Walsh of Kearny and reputed supplier Paul Cabrera 25 of Harrison. Walsh was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia Cabrera with possession and distribution of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. Police said he was also wanted on a Harrison warrant for pot possession. March 21 P.O. Brian Wisely was patrolling the Belleville Pike near Sellers St. at 4 p.m. when he noticed three individuals walking along the road carrying in plain view a bag of scrap metal and copper. He did a warrant check and arrested Anthony Malacow 34 of Newark who reportedly was wanted by Seaside Heights. The other two men were negative for warrants and because it could not be assumed that the metal was stolen were allowed to leave Chief Dowie noted. Also at 4 p.m. Dets. Ray Lopez and Mike Gonzalez pursuant to an ongoing investigation arrested 47-year-old Kearny resident Carlos Fernandez at Kearny Ave. and Hoyt St. on an outstanding warrant connected to a Schuyler Ave. theft earlier this month. Fernandez was remanded to the Hudson County Jail on a charge of theft of movable property a large air-conditioning unit. -- Karen Zautyk Headache Sciatica Arthritis Neck Back Low Back Pain Smoking and body Weight Control Menopause Allergies Fatigue Insomnia Treatment Specialties 293 Grove St. Jersey City NJ 07302 201-915-0710 215 N. 2nd St. Harrison NJ 07029 973-482-1530 KIDDIE SOCCER Ages 3 - 6 1 2 Dear Dr. E. I always hear commercials about Gingivitis what is it What do I need to combat it Combat it infers that there is a war going on in your mouth well there is. It s a bacterial battle and if you are not proactive the bacteria can win leaving you with inflamed gums a.k.a gingivitis. If it remains untreated it will develop into periodontal disease something you do not want trust me. This inflammation of your gums creates a great environment in which the destructive bacteria will flourish which leads to periodontal disease. This destructive bacteria eats away the tissue and bone that support your teeth. Not a good situation Your dental hygienist should measure your gums at least once a year. A normal measurement is between 3 to 4 millimeters in all areas surrounding a tooth. If the measurements are deeper and or accompanied by excessive bleeding during the exam that indicates a periodontal problem. The use of a mouthwash pre-rinse and daily flossing is recommended to reduce the bad bacteria as a method to avoid gingivitis. The same procedure also helps gingivitis from escalating into periodontal disease. The method of pre-rinsing with a mouthwash routine brushing capped off with a final rinse of mouthwash is what I recommend for the lazy brusher ( a person that does not floss). The best routine though is one that includes flossing. These steps will have you winning the war on gingivitis for the rest of your life.

For the first time in years across the nation the housing market is finally tipping in favor of home sellers yet homes for sale are scarce. As stated in a recent release from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Total housing inventory at the end of January fell 4.9% to 1.74 million existing homes available for sale which represents a 4.2-month supply. With this low level of supply it is clearly a seller s market. Though credit requirements are more stringent funds to borrow are available and buyers are anxious to take advantage of historically low interest rates. Lawrence Yun NAR chief economist said Buyer traffic is 40% above a year ago so there is plenty of demand but insufficient inventory to improve sales more strongly. We ve transitioned into a seller s market in much of the country. For those potential home sellers who are waiting for prices to dramatically increase to put their home on the market think again because your competition may be thinking the same thing. Prices are currently gaining strength because indemand buyers are rushing to purchase the homes that are currently available. Because of this demand homes on the market today are selling much quicker and at higher asking prices due to multiple bids and bidding wars. Be forewarned that as more homes enter the market for sale and more competition exists among home sellers prices may not dramatically increase and time on the market could be months longer. Additionally according to a recent Newsday article applications for building permits rose nationwide to an annual rate of 925 000 in January and Northeast building permits increased 10.1% between December and January. New homes mean fierce competition for home sellers. There is a clear window of opportunity for sellers right now that should be taken advantage of. If you want to sell your home and are not sure if there is enough equity call me and I will provide you with a Competitive Market Analysis. The analysis will provide you with in-depth details about your competition such as median price and time on the market. With this tool I will build a price marketing strategy for your home. For homebuyers stay resilient. Call me and I can help you find your dream home in your price range negotiate on your behalf and walk you through the sales process. Arm yourself in advance by obtaining financing. If you have questions on how to do so please ask me and I can refer you to a trusted mortgage specialist. For sellers on the fence and buyers facing tough competition call me today. I am here to help you navigate and negotiate.

According to the indictment Leadbeater and his co-conspirators recruited straw purchasers who had good credit scores but lacked the criteria needed to qualify for mortage loans for which they d pay no deposits or closing costs no 01 monthly mortgage fees and get an upfront payment after the closing. Meanwhile the indictment alleges the conspirators falsified buyers earnings form tax returns and rental agreements to make the buyers seem more credit worthy to get the loans from lenders. The indictment says the conspirators took proceeds from the fraudulent mortgage loans by having funds wired or checks deposited into various accounts that they controlled [and] the Straw Purchasers ... were paid a portion of the funds.

As part of the scam the indictment says Leadbeater located a real estate property to purchase typically from a real estate developer and purchased the property dry meaning that little to no funds were produced for that transaction and then recruited a straw buyer to purchase the same property ... [which] Leadbeater had purchased dry at a substantially increased sales price. That hiked up price the indictment alleges was designed ... to cover a pay-out to ... Leadbeater and or [two] coconspirators. Title companies ... distributed proceeds of the fraudulently-obtained mortgage loan to the conspirators by wire transferring funds into an account controlled by ... Leadbeater or [by] issuing a check made payable to ... Leadbeater s companies such as BCJL Enterprises or Lead 1 Investments the indictment says. The indictment says that if Leadbeater is convicted the government will compel Leadbeater to forfeit 2 961 518 ... representing the amount of proceeds obtained as a result of the offense for which [Leadbeater] is ... liable. The U.S. Attorney s Office said that Leadbeater surrendered to the FBI on Saturday March 23 and was expected to appear that day before U.S. Magistrate Ann Marie Donio in Camden Federal Court. Leadbeater is being represented by Jersey City attorney Thomas J. Cammarata. Kearny BOE President Bernadette McDonald reached on Saturday said that BOE Attorney Kenneth Lindenfelser is reviewing the situation to determine if the federal accusation will impact Leadbeater s status on the board. It appears that the criminal allegations have no bearing on Leadbeater s involvement with the Kearny school system she said. I talked to [Leadbeater] this morning and he told me he s coming to the [BOE] budget hearing Monday [March 25] McDonald said. After she read news accounts of her colleague s plight McDonald said I was stunned. I got up and said to my husband Did I dream that I really didn t believe that. I ve known him since I ran for the board 12 years ago [when] he supported me McDonald said. But we had a falling out after he came on the board two years ago. I thought we had an understanding that he was supposed to support me for [BOE] president but he supported someone else. He stabbed me in the back. But McDonald said that was water under the bridge. I do feel for his family his three boys one in college and two out and his wife Kathy she said.
