April 3 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXV No. 47 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Now Bergen is buying back guns In February law enforcement authorities sponsored a gun buyback program in Essex County collecting 1 770 weapons from Essex residents over two days. Now it s Bergen County s turn. On Saturday April 13 and Sunday April 14 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day the Bergen County Sheriff s Office (BCSO) and Bergen County Prosecutor s Office will partner with local police departments to host a countywide gun buyback at places of worship in seven communities Garfield Hackensack Englewood Fair Lawn Maywood Park Ridge and New Milford. According to a statement from Sheriff Michael Saudino s office the buyback is being held in light of the recent acts of gun violence that have taken place across our nation. If we can take even one dangerous weapon off our streets we can make Bergen County a safer place in which to live work and play the statement said. Individuals who turn in firearms can receive up to 300 for each weapon surrendered. Compensation varies by firearm type 20 for non-operational weapons 80 for rifles and shotguns 100 for handguns and 300 for automatic assault weapons and machine guns. see GUNS page Out in front with technology By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent LYNDHURST W ith technology viewed as the bridge to the future Lyndhurst public schools are committed to crossing that bridge right now. It s all about readiness and preparation for the real world. We re on that path said Lyndhurst High School Principal Nicholas Coffaro. So this year the school district took a big step on that path by ordering and distributing an iPad to every Lyndhurst High School student on the assumption that it has a practical application to learning in virtually any kind of academic setting. And by the time the next school year begins in September the district plans to have either iPads or laptops in place for every middle schooler in grades 6 through 8. Not only will the new instrumentation fit in as a useful instructional tool noted Schools Superintendent Tracey Marinelli but it will also be essential for students to get acclimated to them since the state Department of Education see IPADS page Photos by Ron Leir Lyndhurst teachers and students find ways to adapt iPads to a variety of classroom lessons. 14 Afraid o cyberspace fraud Fight back Worried about being caught in an online phishing expedition Concerned about malware Identity theft in cyberspace The N.J.

On March 19 18-year-old Juliana Leite was one of seven people appointed by Board of Commissioners to the township s newly created Historic Preservation Committee. The other members are Gary Marino Sal Corvino Jack Barry and Dot Greengrove and alternates James Levendusky and John Demmer. Leite told us that not long ago I went to Commissioner [Steven] Rogers because I wanted to get more involved in my town. We talked about the veterans programs (she ll be helping with those too) and then he told me about the Historic Preservation Committee. I am honored to have been appointed especially as the first high school student she said. She is also excited to learn more about the organization and to participate in Nutley preservation. The HPC is an outgrowth of the Nutley Community Preservation Partnership a nonprofit group formed eight years ago and now under the direction of Suzanne Beadle. Its mission is to try to preserve certain properties with links to Nutley history--as well as preserving its natural history. As in gardens. And trees. According to the Nutley website (nutleynj.org) The latest surveys list the township as maintaining over Mary Tortoreti President Robert Pezzolla General Manager ADVERTISING Natalie Rodriguez - Ulloa Classified Asst.to GM Lisette Hernandez Classified Kim Pezzolla Sales Rosemary Bennett Sales EDITORIAL Jim Hague Sportswriter Melissa Bastek Copywriter Ron Leir Correspondent Karen Zautyk Correspondent ART DEPARTMENT Michelle Rybeck Graphic Designer Winie Pachs Graphic Designer Photo by Karen Zautyk Juliana Leite and Nutley Commissioner Steven Rogers. 10 000 trees . . . . That number has surely decreased -- but hopefully not sharply -- due to recent storms including Hurricane Sandy and the No-Name Storm that pummeled the area in late 2011. Caretakers are definitely needed. The Partnership defines its overall goal as preserving the unique character of our town. Our mission is to enhance communication and foster a partnership between our community and government in order to encourage appropriate development. As for the HPC it will be charged with identifying designating and regulating historic landmarks within the town. Nutley s history is deep and rich. Although incorporated as a township only in 1902 the community can trace its roots back 300 years. As the website also notes the spirit of volunteerism has long been nurtured Whether . . . families have lived in Nutley for generations or for a few years the civic involvement here in Nutley is infectious. Juliana Leite has surely caught the volunteerism bug. Or maybe it s in a Nutleyite s genes. Born and raised in Nutley she is the daughter of Elaina Zoganas and Volney Leite. Her stepdad is Tim Zoganas. She has a 20-year-old sister Francesca. At Nutley HS Leite has played soccer for three years and basketball for four--but she still finds time to be active in the St. Thomas the Apostle Youth Group. She plans on majoring in elementary and special education in college and is thinking of attending St. Joseph s University in Philadelphia. As for a commitment to Nutley she said I m strongly influenced by my faith family and country and want to give back to the community where I was raised. I really do love my town she told The Observer and I am proud to be from Nutley. It s a great community to be part of and a great town to live in. Citing her new HPC assignment Leite noted I feel very honored to actually get to be a part of the town. Nutley has been great to me and I want to give back. How refreshing it that Commenting on Leite s appointment Commissioner Rogers said I thought it would be a great asset to have her on the committee. It is important to invest in our young people and have them participate in government. And he summed it up perfectly It is important for young persons to be involved in the town. They ll be here when we re gone. 531 Kearny Ave. Kearny N.J. 07032 Phone 201-991-1600 Fax 201-991-8941 www.theobserver.com Display Ads Thursday by 4PM Real Estate Thursday by 12PM Obituaries Monday by 10AM Classifieds Monday by 4PM Deadlines five day weather forecast Wednesday March 3 Thursday March 4 Friday March 5 Saturday March 6 Sunday March 7 Inside Editorial .............................06 Around Town ....................15 Real Estate ........................27 Upcoming Promos 47 56 47 56 59 Partly Cloudy Mostly Cloudy Rain Sunny Cloudy Obits ...................................29 Classifieds .........................30 Business Directory ..........34 Mother s Day 5-08-13 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 3 2013 03 Bringing joy one smile at a time By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY -The other day we had the pleasure and honor of meeting one of this town s most selfless and charming and cherished residents. He greeted us with a handshake at the door of his home and made us feel welcome but conversation was somewhat limited. Part of that was perhaps due to the fact that his first language was German which I do not speak. But then I also do not speak dog. Our visit was with a yellow Labrador named Coby who resides with (I won t say is owned by ) Diane Tilley and her husband retired KFD Capt. Doug Tilley. Coby is a therapy dog who every week visits and brings joy to patients at Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville and students at Northwest Essex Community Healthcare Network Therapeutic School & Preschool also in Belleville. Unlike service dogs which are paired with individuals who have disabilities helping them cope with daily life the job of a therapy dog is to love to be hugged to be petted and to bring smiles Diane explained. We can make people happy one smile at a time. Therapy dogs are also used in reading programs usually at libraries. Dogs are not judgmental Diane noted. A child who might have trouble reading can select a book and read it to the dog without having to worry about making mistakes. It boosts their confidence and increases their skills. Coby who turns 4 on April 5 came into the Tilleys life when he was 9 months old. He born in Germany and was brought to the U.S. by a man who trains K-9 and militaryservice dogs. Coby was destined to be a bomb-sniffer. But a mutual friend who knew the Tilleys were looking for a therapy dog arranged for the Lab to come to Kearny. Coby has a German passport (really) and as a pup had been trained in German which is the only language he understood when he moved in. We couldn t speak German Diane said. But he s smarter than us. So he had to learn English. Coby and Diane have been visiting Clara Maass for a year and the school for six months. I have wanted to do this for a long time Diane said and Coby turned out to be just perfect for it. see DOG page 23 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 Zizzi Salon & Spa Salon & Spa www.ZizziSalon.com PROM Photo by Diane Tilley GIF T CE RTI FICA TE A VAI L ABL E Coby with Edith Valez at Clara Maass INJURED ON THE JOB Workers Compensation Attorney 75 Kip Avenue Rutherford NJ 07070 Phone 201-635-0300 E-mail CoachlawAJC yahoo.com Andrew J.

Rodgers Blvd. South which has been transforming itself from industrial ghost town to a vibrant residential retail transportation hub--not to mention Red Bull epicenter--there is yet another business that is beckoning customers. Pro Cuts salon located at 707 Rodgers Blvd. South in the Harrison Commons complex near the PATH station had its soft opening in late January but the grand opening was this past Saturday -- a Red Bulls game day. Harrison Mayor Ray McDonough stopped by along with Councilman Larry Bennett to greet the eightmember staff and congratulate owner Jim Cretella. And passersby were treated to popcorn and cold drinks and hot pizza. Being only a hop skip and a kick from the soccer stadium Pro Cuts has chosen an aptly clever slogan Get your head in the game. And that means men s women s and children s heads for the salon serves all three groups. (With a discount for kids.) As noted on its website procuts.com At Pro Cuts we re focused on the basics. Haircuts. But basics doesn t mean you won t be pampered. Haircuts include shampoo head and neck massage and a hot towel treatment. Also Cretella noted there is a TV at every station and customers receive complimentary soda Gatorade bottled water etc. The salon is sports themed (see the coffee table filled with baseballs) and is decoSalon staff (from l.) Francine Cerbone Kara Maffei (director of operations) Rachel Castro Brittani Bermudez and owner Jim Cretella rated primarily in Red Bull colors red black and white. It is bright and cheery and sparkling and just walking into the place can brighten your day and lift your spirits. Cretella who also owns a Pro Cuts franchise in Montclair decided to open the Harrison salon because it s a chance to be part of the revitalization of the town. Photos by Karen Zautyk Harrison Mayor Ray McDonough and Councilman Larry Bennett with MaKara Maffei and Jim Cretella at grand opening We love this area he said. It s a wonderful town with great people. They re very nice and very friendly. Cretella noting that he is familiar with the developers who are redefining Harrison added We think this area is growing in a great direction. Evidence of Pro Cuts commitment to investing in the community is the fact that all the proceeds from Saturday s tailgate party grand opening were earmarked for the Red Cross and the Harrison Education Foundation.

A borough press release said that the amount of local taxation needed to support municipal spending in 2013 would decline from last year s 15 359 927 to 15 155 998. And the overall municipal budget which was introduced March 14 would drop by 715 679 to 20 149 434. If no further amendments are made by the governing body the average tax bill for municipal services only is expected to remain about the same as last year -- 3 259 but the average property owner can expect their 2013 tax bill to register increases for school and county expenses according to borough spokesman Thom Ammirato. Last year s budget included 22.23 million to operate borough schools and a 3.56 million county tax levy. No municipal tax increase in N. Arlington N A public hearing to adopt the 2013 municipal budget has yet to be scheduled. Borough Council President Budget Committee Chairman Al Granell said the local budget committee worked hard with the borough s financial professionals to craft a spending plan designed not to hike taxes. Our goal at the start of the year was to give residents tax relief and we have achieved that goal he said. This is an honest budget that puts us on sound financial footing as we try to grow our tax revenue base through redevelopment. There are no cuts to municipal services or programs in the proposed budget. The budget includes a 50% increase in funding for recreation programs and the first phase of funding to cover 450 000 in expenses related to Superstorm Sandy. The borough is hoping for at least partial reimbursement of stormrelated costs from FEMA. Although borough employees contributed 220 000 to their health insurance coverage the budget does reflect a 54 000 increase in health benefits due to premium hikes in the state health benefits program. To reduce the borough s debt burden the council budget committee added nearly 250 000 beyond the statutory minimum to retire current debt. The budget committee also earmarked 25 000 to address redevelopment issues such as establishing an inventory of properties available for redevelopment and efforts to market those properties. Councilman Peter Norcia said the borough s financial future is keyed to its ability to attract developers and increase revenue to the borough from economic growth.... Granell said he expects the borough to begin aggressively seeking developers this year for meadowlands property that was turned over to North Arlington late last year the former Bergen County baler site and the old Bethlehem Steel site. I also want to begin finding developers willing to invest in underutilized properties on Ridge Road [such as the vacant Ridge Lumber Co.] and other main arteries in the borough. The sooner we start talking to developers the sooner we can bring in more tax revenue that will relieve the burden on homeowners Granell said.

A friend who is a Marine veteran and a former Saigon war correspondent emailed me what appears below. I thought it would be an appropriate commemoration and I have tried to find out who wrote it -- but to no avail. I asked my friend and his response was It has been forwarded so many times that I doubt you could find the origin. Therefore I cannot give the writer credit nor can I vouch for the accuracy of all the data but I truly doubt anyone would make it up.

Most Americans who read this will see only the numbers that the Vietnam War created. But those of us who survived the war and the families of those who did not see the faces. We feel the pain that these numbers created. We are until we too pass away haunted by these numbers because they were our friends fathers husbands wives sons and daughters. There are no noble wars just noble warriors.

I want to thank both the Board of Education as well as our county executive and Freeholder Tanelli for all of their hard work in achieving these goals and objectives we all share as borough residents parents and children alike. At the same time the mayor & council have introduced a zero tax hike budget for 2013. For the first time in three years there will be no increase in the municipal tax levy the portion of the tax bill controlled directly by this governing body. For a home assessed at 318 000 the municipal portion of a homeowner s tax bill will increase about 3 cents from 3 264.28 to 3 264.31 Keep in mind the school portion of your tax bill is roughly 1 400 higher or 4 788.42 for a home assessed at the same 318 000 The municipal tax levy here in North Arlington represents 37% of your overall tax bill while the Board of Education represents 54% and the remaining 9% is from the County of Bergen. Maintaining a stable tax rate is part of keeping North Arlington small safe and suburban. This budget cuts overall spending by over 700 000 and decreases our dependence on homeowners by roughly 200 000. No services were eliminated. Not one. In fact our commitment to recreation programs such as Little League and Girl s Softball increased by as much as 50% per line item. This is what happens when we work collectively for the common good of homeowners and taxpayers I urge speedy adoption of this budget. I want to thank the entire governing body and especially Council President Granell and the professional staff for putting the people s business first in these tough times. And now with the budget s introduction behind us must prioritize our time and examine the best course of action as it applies to redevelopment both in the Meadowlands as well as here on Ridge Road Schuyler Ave. and River Road. Mayor Pete Massa Borough of North Arlington THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 3 2013 07 News from the Nutley Police blotter March 28 Police are investigating the theft of industrial pallets from the property of a Franklin Ave. business.

But as technology evolves so do cybercriminals tactics. Thus the DCA notes Although the basic information about personal protection stays the same specific facts may change as the Internet rapidly changes. For that reason the booklet concludes with a list of online resources that provide regularly updated consumer-friendly information. N.J. Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa noted that identity BRADY BRADY & REILLY theft is considered the fastestgrowing financial crime and identity thieves often steal their victims personal data through computer-based methods such as phishing or by infecting computers with spyware. Online privacy is another growing concern. In June 2012 the N.J. DCA filed its first-ever lawsuit under the Children s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) against a Los Angeles-based developer of children s apps for devices such as the iPhone and iPad. The state alleged that the company s educational apps violated COPPA by collecting personal information from its young users then transmitting that information to a third party without parental notifi- cation or consent. In its settlement with the state the company agreed to cease such practices and to ensure the destruction of all data that had been provided to third parties the DCA reported. But one should note that was just one company. As aggressive and unflagging as we are in our role of enforcing the laws that protect New Jersey s consumers against fraud and abusive practices we are just as committed to help consumers protect themselves through education and awareness Chiesa stated.

KEARNY NJ 07032 T 201-997-0030 F 201-997-7150 WWW.BBR-LAW.COM KearnyObserver_AD.indd 1 3 29 13 8 15 AM out out&about By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY -he trout-fishing season starts in New Jersey this Saturday April 6 at 8 a.m. and local anglers do not have to travel very far to seek a prize catch. The pond in West Hudson Park covers a mere 4 acres but by Saturday it will have been stocked with 340 trout most of average size about 10.5 inches and a half-pound each. However lucky fisherfolk could land what the N.J. Division of Fish & Wildlife terms a lifetime trout. Of the 340 fishies 30 are large broodstock trout -weighing 3 to 7 pounds each and ranging from 15 to 24 inches. West Hudson s pond is one of only 10 sites in the state to be selected for the broodstock for the 2013 season. By concentrating . . . these large trout in 10 relatively small lakes and ponds it is expected that angler participation and satisfaction will increase as anglers catch these trout themselves or observe others catching them the division s website notes. Imagine going to a small pond or lake and latching onto one of these lunkers. (We do not fish but we presume lunker is a good thing.) In 2012 West Hudson Park had received only five broodstock trout so odds of catching one are far better this year. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 3 2013 09 Go fish Starting Saturday it s trout & about T Every spring over a span of several weeks Fish & Wildlife workers travel the length and breadth of the state depositing more than 570 000 brook brown and rainbow trout in approximately 200 bodies of water not only lakes and ponds but also streams and rivers. All the fish come from the the division s Pequest Hatchery in Warren County. The Hackensack River will have been stocked with 690 trout by Opening Day and a total of 1 810 by the end of May. The Passaic River will have 2 700 by Saturday and an eventual total of 7 020. (No broodstock in the rivers though.) Your correspondent was surprised to see the Passaic on the stocking list but then we remembered that the river is more than the sum of its polluted parts (the section that flows through Observer towns.) The Passaic is 80 miles long and wends its way through pristine hills and lowlands of rural and suburban Jersey before it reaches this area. We surmise (and hope) that the river trout will be caught primarily in the unpolluted areas. If any make it down this far and are caught in these waters (people do fish the river here why we cannot fathom) they should NOT be consumed. In any case the trout likely will have developed feet and glowing fins if they ve spent any time in the Lower Passaic. Perhaps one could use them as nightlights. Please note that to legally fish for trout even in a park pond a valid N.J. fishing license and trout stamp are required for N.J. residents aged 16 through 69 and for all nonresidents aged 16 and older.

FEMA agents checking flood-prone properties The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is in the process of visiting Belleville Nutley Bloomfield and other Essex County communities that have been hit repetitively by flooding the agency has announced. FEMA has identified properties within these communities that have received flooding damage claims payments on at least two occasions. FEMA teams will be surveying owners of these properties to collect data to help explain why these structures are vulnerable to flooding and damages and what mitigation measures may be feasible to protect them from future storms. FEMA agents are also doing this survey on behalf of the National Flood Insurance Program with an eye to trying to keep property owners flood insurance premiums affordable. FEMA representatives will be visiting locations through April 12. They will be wearing FEMA identification badges confirming their authorization to conduct this survey. These representatives will need about 15 minutes to check aspects of a property s construction assess its flood vulnerabilities and photograph the structure. Other communities on FEMA s visitation list are East Orange Fairfield Glen Ridge Irvington Livingston Maplewood Millburn Montclair Newark North Caldwell East Caldwell Orange South Orange West Orange Roseland and Verona.

Zillow reports that U.S. homes gained 1.3 trillion in cumulative value in 2012 which is the first cumulative value increase since 2006. In contrast between 2007 and 2011 cumulative home values dropped annually. The largest declines occurred in 2008 when homes lost more than 3.2 trillion in value. The three factors thought to be driving up home prices recently are fewer foreclosures and more short sales low inventory and investor activity. Whatever the cause(s) there is every reason to believe that the housing market has turned the corner. For most people buying and selling a home is one of the largest decisions they will ever make.

Created as a nonprofit charity to honor the 30-year career of one of North Arlington High School s most beloved teachers the GMAS will be held on Thursday April 4 at 6 30 p.m. at the North Arlington Public Library. Established in 2009 by Andrea Jennings and Daniel Marck former students of Miller GMAS features the fine art and sculpture work of current elementary middle and high school students in North Arlington. It also supports the George Miller Art Scholarship Program funded by donations from parents and New Jersey businesses. In addition to showcasing the art of North Arlington students the GMAS will also hold a silent auction so attendees can purchase original student art pieces. The growth of the George Miller Art Show has been a welcome development but not a total surprise said Marck. George was so loved and his spirit was so generous the people who knew him are determined to keep his legacy alive and thriving. Miller taught at NAHS from 1962 until his death in 1993. He was an accomplished painter himself and his artwork often incorporating the Egyptian ankh symbol is used to guide themes for the annual art shows. This year s guest speakers are Dr. Tina H. Snider owner and director of the Chatham Mental Health Center and Patricia Flicker Addiss a Broadway producer whose most recent production was A Christmas Story The Musical. Snider will speak on the importance of art in our schools and its impact on building a child s self-esteem. Addiss will discuss the role of art in our society and how it deeply enriches the lives of children and adults. Addiss is also involved in anti-bullying initiatives and will briefly touch on ways that promotion of the arts increases tolerance. The event organizers have ambitious hopes for the future of GMAS. Plans are already being made for the creation of the George Miller Center for the Arts. The center will be become a focal point for cultural enrichment and art education for students who intend to pursue a lifelong career in the arts. At a time when violence in our schools is a hard reality the healing power of art and the peaceful spirit of George Miller have inspired us to come together once again for this positive community experience said Jennings who now owns MadCreek Advertising an Upper Montclair agency that helps sponsor the GMAS. We hope that everyone will come out to celebrate George s life and his enormous contributions to our community and to ensure a fourth successful GMAS. Deon Deonysios Kalevas CPA P.C.

Arlington awards contract to pave Gold St. NORTH ARLINGTON The borough council awarded a contract last week for the paving of Gold Street from Front Street to Albert Street said Council President Al Granell. The Gold Street improvements include milling the existing surface repaving the street replacing sidewalks and creating new handicapped friendly curb cuts as needed. The 168 340 contract was awarded to 4 Cleanup Inc. of North Bergen. The cost will be offset by a 79 600 grant from the County of Bergen through the Community Development Block Grant fund. By leveraging CDBC monies we can lower the cost of improvements to our taxpayers said Granell. Engineers for the project expect construction to begin in mid-April weather permitting. Mayor Peter Massa said the street paving is part of his administration continued investment in the borough s infrastructure. We want to continue to make investments that add to the homeowners property values said Massa.

In Patrick Newman s World History Honors class ninthgraders worked in clusters with their iPads as Newman led them through a Power- can more readily assimilate. And at the same time Marinelli said this instructional strategy promotes independent thinking and learning as well. In the math class for example a student can take a picture of an algebra problem and e-mail it to themselves to review at home especially if they re not good at taking notes in class she said.

Marinelli explained that high school teachers had begun getting acclimating to the new devices back in March 2012 when they were put through training sessions on how to apply the instrumentation to actual instructional techniques. Ipads in the classroom function essentially as interactive textbooks Marinelli said and that s key when teaching to today s 21st century learner. Today she said students aren t predisposed to go from page 1 to 120 they lose concentration because they live in a fast-paced world. So we teach to the curriculum not the textbook she said. This means that teachers are freed up to use the technology at their disposal iPads in concert with projectors and Smartboards to present material in a way that students of that has the iPads available on a one-to-one basis to high school students Marinelli said. In another personnelrelated district development Marinelli said that Lyndhurst has successfully petitioned the Bergen County Superintendent of Schools Office for permission to exceed the budget cap for administration by hiring two additional kindergarten to grade 8 school principals although the district s overall budget must still stay within the state mandated 2% cap. She said that one of those slots will be a new position and the other will be a replacement triggered by the resignation of Washington School Principal Jean FurlongGordon. Currently the principal assigned to Jefferson School (grades 4 to 8) and Columbus School (grades k to 3) also covers Washington School (grades pre-k disabled to grade 3) and an interim principal is now handling Lincoln School (grades 4 to 8). around town Kearny Trinity Episcopal Church 575 Kearny Ave. Kearny still has tables available at a cost of 15 each or two for 25 for a flea market on Saturday April 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both new and used items as well as crafts will be available for sale.

After last year s 15-12 campaign that featured a run to the Greater Newark Tournament finals and a berth in the NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2 Group III playoffs Harbison knows that the Maroon Raiders will be solid once again this spring. We have a good number of kids back Harbison said. I like the makeup of this team. If the pitchers can throw strikes and we re able to score a few runs I think we can be okay. I just want to win now and I think we can. I m not trying to put too much emphasis on early games. I want us to be better at the end of the season. One of the reasons Harbison is optimistic about the 2013 season is the return of senior right-handed pitcher Joe Feraco who won five games last season and pitched a lot of key games. He s definitely a little better this year Harbison said. He s a groundball pitcher who puts the ball in play. He holds runners on very well. Bottom line he gets outs and that s what we need. Junior Mike Meechem will be another of the Maroon Raiders hurlers. He throws hard said Harbison of Meechem who got his feet wet last year as a sophomore with a few appearances. We just have to get his control down a little for him to be consistently effective. Junior Kyle Cresci is a right-hander who also saw a little time on the mound for the Maroon Raiders last year. He has a good fastball and breaking ball Harbison said of Cresci. Juniors Nick Liaci and sophomores Sean Rodriguez and Pete DeCilla a transfer from Paramus Catholic will also get time on the mound. Liaci and Rodriguez are also left-handed giving Harbison three lefties to call on. It s a good thing to have left-handers on your staff Harbison said. Handling that deep staff is returning starter Austin Kunz who has been behind the plate for the Maroon Raiders since he arrived at the school. The junior Kunz is a top talent who keeps improving. see VIEW page Photos by Jim Hague Harrison sophomore pitcher Fiona Slattery holds the key to the Blue Tide s success this season. 19 who earned 10 of the team s 12 wins last season.

I m also By Jim Hague Observer Sports Writer A hoping that her leadership comes around. Confidence is also an issue. But I think playing basketball helped her mature a lot. I don t see any of the traits that sent her back last year. She s turned around 180 degrees. I think she has the potential to be the best player in her family. There already have been three O Donnell sisters to play softball at Harrison so that s a compliment. The catcher is junior Alexandria Hidrovo who started behind the plate last year. She started every game and learned a lot Nankivell said. She s a decent hitter who hits the ball to all fields. Her defensive play behind the plate has improved tremendously and that comes with experience. see BlUE TIDE next page 18 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 3 2013 BLUE TIDE from 17 Two seniors Michelle Zea and Zemaida Miranda have formed a platoon at first base. Senior Genevie Andujar is the second baseman. Andujar is a complete bundle of energy who does a lot for the Blue Tide. It s her third year of playing second base for us so that s a big plus Nankivell said. She s our leadoff hitter and can do a lot of things for us. We re expecting good things from her. O Donnell has handled the transition to shortstop very well. Junior Jenna Ferriero is the third baseman. She s the younger sister of former baseball standout Anthony currently playing at FDUFlorham. She s our slugger Nankivell said of Ferriero. She grips it and rips it. Sophomore Kayla Montilla is the starter in left field. Montilla could very well be the fastest player in the NJIC Meadowlands Division. She sure can run Nankivell said. She amazes me with the way she runs after the ball. Kayla s younger sister Abby Montilla is the starter in centerfield. She has a very strong arm and she can move around out Kearny Family Health Center General & Cosmetic Dentistry For the entire Family there as well Nankivell said. In right field sophomore Fayth Hartkopf and sophomore Nicole Colon are battling for playing time. The Blue Tide will learn quickly how improved they are facing Leonia Lyndhurst and Snyder in the first week of the season. We graduated some big players Nankivell said. We lost our No. 1 No. 3 and No. 4 batters so we have a lot of holes to fill. But I like the way they are coming together. Nankivell who was the Harrison football coach for the last six seasons resigned for family reasons in December after a winless campaign. I tell these girls all the time that they got to get me a win Nankivell laughed. I haven t won in a while. But Nankivell will win with this team far more than once. We can be successful if we can just harness their ability Nankivell said. Athletically we re very good. We just have to try to translate that into wins. DR. SOUHA HANNA D.D.S. DR.

They were quality players who are hard to replace said Kearny head coach Jim Pickel. However it just may be that the Kardinals have at least found a replacement for Amadeo on the mound. We re going to miss Ashleigh s pitching but we think that the new kid is very good Pickel said. The new kid is freshman Carolynne Rivera who has all the tools to be a very good one. I knew she was good coming in but I didn t think this good Pickel said of Rivera.

Back row from l. are assistant coach Amy Goldman Emily Papa Kelsey one makes an error behind French Kerry Sweeney and head coach Jim Pickel. her she never gets rattled. She stays the same the whole time and for a freshman that s very impressive. She does have an assortment of different pitches but we ll still working on her. Rivera s best pitches seem to be her drop and her drop curve. She ll get better as she goes along Pickel said. Finding someone who could do as much as O Neill did might be a different story. O Neill started her career as an outfielder became an infielder and could pitch and catch if needed. She played three different positions for us so losing that versatility might be a little tough Pickel said. We do have some girls who can do different things. Senior Kristen Stankus just one-third of the Stankus triplet brigade is the starting catcher. She s our returning catcher story continued next page THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 3 2013 21 and this year she looks really solid Pickel said. She s taking on the leadership role back there. She communicates well with the rest of the team in terms of telling people what to do. And she s helping the young pitcher. Senior Emily Papa returns to her spot at first base. Papa batted close to .400 last season. We re hopeful that she can do a little bit more this year Pickel said. She s our No. 3 hitter and helps the offense but the key thing she does for us is her defense. She scoops up balls in the dirt and catches everything. She s more comfortable now at first so that s made her into a better hitter as well. The second base duties are being shared by a pair of juniors namely Kelly Wilkinson and Lacey Burton. They both do different things Pickel said. It s kind of hard to pick one out ahead of the other but they both help us. Sophomore Daniella Echevestre is the starting shortstop. She s very athletic and handles playing there well said Pickel of Echevestre who is also a solid hitter. Senior Kelsey French returns for her third season as the starting third baseman. She s very solid there Pickel said. She s hitting the ball a lot better so far this spring. Junior Amanda Seda is the starter in left field with senior Kerry Sweeney in control of centerfield. Kerry played mostly in the infield last year but she played centerfield in the fall and did very well Pickel said. Junior Spiridoula Dimou is the starter in right field. Pickel has a good bench he can rely on including the other two Stankus twins namely Nicole and Jennifer. Nicole will do some pitching and can fill in at any infield position so she s valuable Picklel said. Jen can play right field or second base. They re all great kids and I m glad to have them.

I don t think it s a problem having triplets on the team Pickel said. In fact I think it helps us. Freshman Melissa McAndrew is another versatile player who can catch play the outfield or infield. She ll go wherever she s needed Pickel said of McAndrew. The Kardinals were scheduled to open their season Tuesday against Hoboken then face Queen of Peace Thursday and head to the Hackensack Tournament with a matchup against Passaic County Tech in the first round. Pickel is confident that the Kardinals can make some noise this season. I definitely think we can compete Pickel said. We just have to keep going year by year. The big concern for me coming into the school year was who the pitcher was going to be. But Carolynne has put the time in and made life a lot easier.

But you can t just walk into a health-care facility and say you have a therapy dog no matter how gentle and friendly the canine is. Both Coby and Diane had to be trained. Diane signed up with Joana Watsky of Sit and Stay dog training (www.njsitnstay. com) who teaches a therapy-dog course in Nutley. During the sixweek program Coby with his human Diane Tilley and Clara Maass nurse Carolyn Giordano Coby worked on his obedience and personal skills and got up close to wheelchairs and canes and walkers so he would be densensitized to those objects that might initially cause him apprehension. And Diane learned how to be the vigilant handler. At the end of the course Diane was tested and certified by Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs (www. golden-dogs.org) which is a licensed nonprofit authorized to issue certification. At Clara Maass where the health restrictions are tight and strictly obeyed Coby visits patients in several units -- oncology behavioral pediatrics chemotheraphy same-day surgery. His task To bring joy Diane said. Coby s second job came about through a chance encounter in a Belleville park between Diane and the Lab and some students and teachers from the Northwest Essex school. The first day he visited the school there were Welcome Coby signs on all the doors Diane said. Many of the students are autistic and some were initially afraid of the dog but now they ve bonded Diane said. In some of the classrooms he visits he goes to every desk. In others he ll lie on the floor and the kids come up to him. Their interaction varies from a tentative pat or a hug to lying on him like a pillow Diane said. Coby spends at least two hours at the school once a week. Working with the children is very gratifying Diane noted but the weekly visits to the hospital can be very sobering. If you can touch their (the patients ) lives for a moment make them forget that s a job well done she explained noting that it s Coby who does the work. It s all about him I m just his driver she said. By the way Coby has his own Facebook page and his own email account so his fans can communicate with him. But Diane explained I let them know that I have to do the typing because he can t spell worth a damn. Photos by Diane Tilley & Karen Zautyk Make time for life. Schedule a mammogram today.
