April 24 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXV No. 50 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Bergen buys back 1 345 guns Like other recent gun buybacks in New Jersey the one held the weekend of April 13-14 in Bergen County was a huge success bringing in a total of 1 345 weapons authorities reported. Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino called the results overwhelming. In the buyback individuals could anonymously surrender firearms for cash. According to the Sheriff s Office a total of 101 923 was paid out the funding coming from the Bergen County Prosecutor s Office with money seized from criminal activities. Surprisingly tiny upscale Park Ridge (President Richard Nixon lived there after leaving office) led the pack in guns collected at a single site 259. And that was just one day s take. As in the buybacks in Essex County Camden and Trenton houses of worship served as the collection points with law enforcement officers in charge of the collection. But unlike the other events where sites were open on both Saturdays and Sundays the 11 participating churches and temples in Bergen were open only one day each. Park Ridge set its record on Saturday the 13th. The reported tally at Our Lady of Mercy Church included 107 shotguns see GUNS page Insight into Boston By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent NUTLEY ollowing the horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon last week one Nutley official could be found all over the airwaves. Being interviewed on this network or that was Commissioner Steven Rogers director of the township s Department of Public Affairs. You might wonder why if you re not from Nutley. It s because Rogers also happens to be an intelligence expert with unique insight into terrorists and the mayhem they wish to perpetrate. Rogers spent 38 years as a member of the Nutley Police Depart- F ment retiring in 2011 as detective lieutenant and commander of the Detective Bureau. But during his police career he was also a lieutenant commander in the Naval Reserve and when the Iraqi war began he was mobilized and took a military leave from the police force. From 2001 to 2003 he served in military intelligence in Colorado with the U.S. Northern Command in Norfolk Va. and at FBI headquarters in Washington. Then from 2003 to 2005 he was a senior military intelligence officer assigned to the National Joint Terrorism Task Force Office see BOMBING page Photo by Karen Zautyk Nutley Commissioner Steve Rogers in his office. 13 A rescue plan for better fire protection A five-alarm fire March 10 at Frank E.

Fifty-seven years as a Kearny public school teacher is proof enough. Next month Bixler who retired in June 2011 will be accorded honors on two separate occasions for her work as a loyal educator in the community. On May 3 at 1 30 p.m. the Parent Teacher Association of Roosevelt Elementary School with backing by the Board of Education will name one of the school s two playgrounds for the former instructor and on May 16 the Salvation Army of Greater Kearny will fete her at a dinner. When she reached the half-century mark the Kearny Board of Education recognized her achievement at a public meeting. It was at Roosevelt School where Bixler spent 53 years opening the minds of kindergarten and first-grade children to the wonders of words and numbers. For the prior four years she taught kindergarten at Garfield School. Roosevelt PTA President Melanie Pasquarelli whose daughter and whose grandfather s second wife were both Bixler s students said that Bixler merited bravos as a super dedicated teacher. But Pasquarelli noted she didn t tell anybody she was retiring. Had the PTA known beforehand Pasquarelli said we d have acknowledged her in a big way. ...

At that point Pasquarelli said the PTA thought one of the best things we could do would be to honor her by naming the [toddler] playground for her. It seemed the ideal choice since it seemed that whenever Bixler wasn t in her classroom she was outside on the school grounds around the play areas busy planting bulbs sometimes with the students or yanking weeds from a garden or tending to those flowerings that Superstorm Sandy ravaged. And now will be perfect time to do it the PTA leader said now that one of the organization s members Paula Fernandes successfully applied for a 5 000 Lowe s Charitable & Educational Foundation grant matched by 1 850 raised by PTA playground committee head Jennifer Cullen and PTA members to refurbish the playground as an interactive play area for kids with a map of the U.S. painted on the asphalt alongside hopscotch and funnel ball courts. Once Pasquarelli recalled Bixler s class took up a collection and gave her a digital camera as a gift so Bixler immediately set out to snap shots of her students working on class projects and other activities and sent them to the children. Even in retirement Bixler has been no stranger to Roosevelt School returning to watch the sixth-graders annual play share in birthday celebrations and just generally support our school Pasquarelli said. There are no words to describe how dedicated she has been to our school community Pasquarelli said. All of this attention is a bit overwhelming for Bixler who says I feel humbled for sure. Not totally at ease. It s a very big honor for those who came before me. A product of Kearny public schools Bixler attended kindergarten at Washington School then switched to Garfield for first through third grades then on to Lincoln Jr. High for seventh and eighth grades before finishing at Kearny High graduating in 1949. She got an undergraduate degree in elementary education from Newark State Teachers College in 1953 and began her teaching career that same year at Garfield School in Kearny. Since then she s never looked back. Once I got in the classroom and saw what it was like I never thought of [doing] anything else Bixler said. Her inspiration has always come from her students she says. They re full of life. Once in a while an acre of pain. But for the most part the positives outweighed any discomfort she said. At that age they re so bubbly. Eager to learn. Like sponges. Eager to please you. Energetic upbeat kind of kids. It s a wonderful environment to work in. I don t believe I ever had a boring day of teaching. ... It was a tremendous satisfaction to see how kids can learn so much. Over the long span of her career Bixler estimates she s seen more than 1 000 students come through her classroom doors many comprising two see PLAYGROUND page 10 Display Ads Thursday by 4PM Real Estate Thursday by 12PM Obituaries Monday by 10AM Classifieds Monday by 4PM Deadlines five day weather forecast Wednesday April 24 Thursday April 25 Friday April 26 Saturday April 27 Sunday April 28 Inside Editorial .............................06 Around Town ....................12 Business Directory ..........20 Upcoming Promos 69 57 63 63 65 Partly Cloudy Mostly Cloudy Sunny Mostly Sunny Mostly Sunny Real Estate ........................22 Obits ...................................25 Classifieds .........................26 Mother s Day 5-08-13 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 24 2013 03 Issues lingering at Kearny field house KEARNY t wasn t easy but finally Kearny s new field house at Veterans Field is finished and ready for business ... if you overlook issues with the concession stand.

At the public ceremonies Mayor Alberto Santos said We are very excited to open this environmentally friendly facility just a few days before Earth Day 2013. It comes with a green roof and trellis system a water recycling system for toilets and maintenance-free metal roof and siding all designed to keep the building cool and delivered by the contractor for a cost of 750 000 paid for by outside government sources 483 000 from the Hudson County Open Space trust fund 158 000 from a federal Energy Efficiency and Conservation block grant and the rest from Community Development Block funds for the ADA component.

Van Riper son-in-law of former Harrison Municipal Court Judge John Johnson (currently special counsel to the Harrison Redevelopment Agency) grew up in Paterson but his family moved to Elmwood Park during his high school years.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 24 2013 05 Ready set serve KEARNY he annual Kearny Project Graduation Volleyball Tournament an always much-anticipated event is scheduled for this Friday April 26 in the Kearny High School gym. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the games begin at 6 30. Traditional rivalries will be renewed as the combatants meet on the court. The matches are Franklin Falcons vs. Washington School Garfield School vs. Roosevelt School Lincoln Lightning vs. Schuyler Tigers Board of Education members vs. Town of Kearny employees KHS Teachers vs. KHS Seniors and Firefighters vs. Police Officers. General admission is 5 3 for senior citizens and students with IDs. The tournament is second only to the 50 50 raffle (tickets for which will be sold at the tourney) in raising funds for Project Graduation which treats KHS seniors to a nightlong post-commencement T party. It s an alcohol-free event launched in 1996 as a safer alternative to private house parties. According to Project Grad s president Kearny Fire Chief Steve Dyl typically about 80% of each graduating class elects to attend the event which costs about 30 000 to run. Hence the need for fundraising. There is also a continuing need for adult volunteers as planners coordinators and party chaperones. Project Grad vols meet on the last Thursday of each month the next meeting being this Thursday April 25 at 7 30 p.m. in the KHS teachers lounge. For more information those who might be interested in volunteering are invited to call Dyl at 201-991-7467. Or just go to the meeting he said. As for the raffle tickets which are 10 each they can always be purchased by contacting either Dyl at the number above or Sandy Hyde at 551-265-8969.

I returned home and flipped on the television and there on the screen was President Obama addressing the nation and stating We will find out who did this and bring them to justice (or words to that effect). Did WHAT Of course the story was all over the news and I soon found out about the bombings the coverage of which I followed all week. On Friday I awoke to the O Running with a story and stumbling clock radio and a live feed from a press conference with some official stating The entire city of Boston is in lock-down. People are being asked to shelter in place. WHAT Apparently I had gone to sleep the night before just prior to when the news broke about the shootout between police and the terror suspects. For much of the day I was glued to the TV following as best I could the dramatic events unfolding in Watertown Mass. I flipped from channel to channel and was struck by the same thing I had thought during the week How misinformative much of the coverage was. This is partly due to the desire to scoop the competition (something I touched on in last week s column about the feeding-frenzy for sound bites). But it is also because when you ve got nonstop coverage you ve got to fill the airtime with something. So straight factual reporting can take a backseat to the yadayadayada of the talking heads. And worse to errors. A prime example was CNN s now-infamous report Wednesday that sources had informed them of an arrest of a suspect in the bombings. It took them about an hour to confirm this was not so. On Friday Scott Pelley on CBS started to report that Connecticut police had issued a BOLO for a green Honda sedan with Massachusetts plates. But before he went any further he interrupted himself. He was getting new info. And he immediately made a correction No such alert had been issued. Good for you Scott. At least a half-hour after that another network announced that Connecticut police were looking for a green Honda . . . which still was not true. Disgusted I changed the channel so I don t know how long it took them to correct their mistake. I might be wrong but somehow I doubt it was immediate. This is dangerous territory because we all make mistakes (which is why The Observer puts corrections on this page when warranted) but mistakes are most egregious when they involve a high-profile story about which the entire world is awaiting accurate information. Too often in the race to be first what is sometimes reported as fact isn t fact at all. There has long been an in joke among journalists about how bad the reporting can be when someone not completely on the ball is covering a breaking story. We re aware of it. You should be too. This is not deliberate carelessness. It is explicable. But it is still not excusable. Suggestion You might consider keeping a few grains of salt next to your remote. Karen Zautyk Sportsmanship Show me the money So the sword has fallen on the head basketball coach and athletic director at Rutgers our premiere State University in the wake of the release of videos showing abusive actions and homophobic barbs by the coach toward his players. Should we be shocked that (a) nothing happened until the videos came to public light (b) that higher-ups knew about the coach s aberrant behavior well before we did or (c) that lawsuits (whistleblower and otherwise) are resulting Nope. Maybe y all may remember a little scandal not so long ago that happened at Penn State University. A different scholastic sport a somewhat different alleged behavior pattern by a coach but the facts were known beforehand. Welcome to America boys and girls. Maybe some of you watched the recent CBS 60 Minutes episode and caught the segment on Linsanity. Remember the former Harvard hoops standout and later New York Knicks guard who exploded as a scoring star and not long after abandoned Madison Square Garden to blast off with the Rockets for a more lucrative deal in Houston It s all about the money. Lin told interviewer Charlie Rose that he had the support of his parents to go for the gold rather than pursue a career as an engineer or doctor an anomaly among more traditional Asian-Americans. And the adulation adoring fans from both the U.S. and China shower on him Lin seems to take as validation of that pursuit. Of course the big bucks he s getting from Rockets management is also comforting no doubt. For American student athletes intent on edging their way into Division 1 colleges and universities with the expectation of being scouted by pro teams no matter what the sport the insidious pressure self-imposed or from outside sources is enough to corrupt even the most pure. So much so that many are willing to overlook the kinds of abuse foisted on them in the belief that it s a necessary evil to make the grade. If they can manage to do that then it s all worth it. Bottom line It s not the value of learning to be a team player and using your talents for the best interests of you and your teammates. No. It s all about ME and breaking the individual basketball scoring record or busting the quarterback s head or slamming a record number of homers to attract the cheers and cashola. Win one for the Gipper Hell no bro . I m winning this so I get picked among the top 10 in the draft. Sure you hear professional coaches talking all the time about teamwork but to me that s just trash talk.

Frank West responded to a 2 30 p.m. report of a man harassing people at Kearny and Laurel Aves. The man a 32-year-old South Orange resident denied harassing anyone said he was down on his luck and was just looking for money for food and coffee and wished the officer a Happy Father s Day. Shortly thereafter West observed the same man drinking a beer on Kearny Ave. suds he is thought to have purchased with his coffee money. He was cited for drinking in public and transported at his request to Penn Station. April 15 In another case of lockedout and locked-up P.O. Brian Wisely did come upon a vehicle blocking a driveway on the 200 block of Kearny Ave. at 6 p.m. and did approach a female who was standing alongside it. She claimed she had locked herself out of the car but had just regained access as the officer arrived. One of the windows was down and Wisely reportedly detected a strong odor of marijuana. Under questioning the woman admitted she had just ingested the drug inside the car police said. A search of the vehicle reportedly uncovered three bags of marijuana 14 partially smoked marijuana cigars and an open bottle of alcohol. Kearny resident Idalina Fidalgo 28 was charged with possession of pot and paraphernalia and was issued traffic summonses for blocking a driveway and open alcohol in a vehicle. At 6 38 p.m. Officers Rich Pawlowski and Pat Becker were on patrol in the 590 tract off the Belleville Pike when they observed two men leaving a warehouse through a broken door and placing brand new packages of copier toner cartridges into a vehicle police said. When questioned the men claimed they had permission to take the items but police said the distributor confirmed they were stealing the items valued at an estimated 1 000. Arrested and charged with criminal trespass and receiving stolen property were Abdulla Barr 38 of East Orange and Howard Ruddock 39 of Irvington who was also found to have on outstanding warrant from Elizabeth. April 17 At 1 10 p.m. Detective Mike Gonzalez and Sgt. Paul Bershefski arrested Scott Huaman 22 of Kearny on the 200 block of Chestnut St. on an outstanding warrant issued by Clifton. A search incident to that arrest found that Huaman was in possession of two marijuana cigarettes police said and he was additionally charged with possession of a CDS and paraphernalia. At 2 06 p.m. P.O. John Fabula observed 27-year-old Sidnei Antunes (no known address) on the steps of the Kearny Library and arrested him on an outstanding warrant issued by the Kearny Municipal Court. He was transported to headquarters for processing. see KPD next page 1 APY % 1.35 APY % OFFERS AVAILABLE AT LYNDHURST OFFICE ONLY 1195 Lyndhurst 5.95x9 promo ad.indd 1 3 28 13 2 29 PM 08 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 24 2013 KPD from 07 P.O. Officer Ben Wuelfing was dispatched to a noise complaint on the 200 block of Maple St. at 11 30 p.m. and arrived to find a doubleparked vehicle obstructing traffic.

Crews will work Monday through Friday between 9p.m and 1a.m. to minimize customer inconvenience. The flushing program is expected to last for about 4 weeks. Flushing removes harmless minerals that collect in the water mains. The project is part of the Town routine maintenance program to assure high water quality. Flushing hydrants help to maintain the integrity of the distribution system by keeping the water lines clean. It is also necessary for fire protection because flushing ensures that the hydrants are working properly. During the flushing process customers may experience low water pressure or discolored water. While the water is safe to drink customers may prefer to wait until it runs clear before drinking or washing clothes or dishes.

The promotions of Henry Zienowicz David Prina Joseph Scaperotta and Joseph Faugno from a certified state Civil Service list expected to be confirmed by action of the mayor and Town Council this month would give the HFD a total of eight lieutenants which together with an existing five captains (one assigned to administrative duties) will allow the HFD to staff at least one tour commander two lieutenants and four firefighters per shift the minimum staffing for one engine and one truck. To ease the town s financial burden the union has agreed to defer the pay raises for those promoted (about 13 300 a year more in base pay per man) for 12 months from the day of the promotions. Additionally for the balance of 2013 if the town needs to call in additional personnel for overtime duty it can give that extra compensation as half straight time and half compensatory time on the condition that the comp time can only Photo by Ron Leir A demolition crew was still at work at the scene of the March 10 fire at Frank E.

Even with the new labor contract which according to FMBA President Prina was overwhelmingly ratified by the union membership the town is getting a break. The old contract expired Dec. 31 2011 and both sides agreed to a four-year extension but for the first year 2012 there will be no pay raise. For 2013 and 2014 the town will provide a 1.5% increase each year and for 2015 it will grant a 2% hike. So over the life of the contract top annual pay for firefighter will rise from the current rate of 83 530 to 87 776 top pay for lieutenant will go from the current 95 833 to 100 705 and top pay for captain will climb from the current 108 137 to 113 634 according to calculations by Zarbetski and Robert Murray the town s labor attorney. In a concession to the town the FMBA accepted a new contractual provision that prevents its members from banking any more unused vacation days beyond those already accu- Spa opens Lose up to mulated as of March 18 2013. Murray and Zarbetski said that capping members cumulative unused vacation time will save the town from paying out potentially substantial cash when a longtime FMBA member retires. Also the FMBA agreed to switch from its current Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield health care provider to the state health care benefits plan something that Gov. Chris Christie s administration has been pushing for statewide according to Murray. While the town has made no commitment to new hirings Prina said that during negotiations the mayor (Ray McDonough) promised he would rebuild the Fire Department (now at 29 employees) in anticipation of the new redevelopment coming on line. My feeling is that two years from now we ll be back on track. In the meantime the town is proceeding with what Murray described as informal conversations with police union representatives on extending their labor contract.

Connor who had Bixler as a kindergarten teacher at Garfield in 1955 and who ended up working across the hall from her teaching second grade at Roosevelt called Bixler a totally giving warm person who always strives to expand her field of knowledge. She goes to the nth degree to learn everything. And she s truly creative Every year she [did] different things with the kids and individualized the curriculum to meet the student s needs. Perhaps the biggest adjustment she had to make in the classroom Bixler recalls was adapting to computers as a teaching tool when they were introduced to Kearny schools in the late 80s. I had never touched a computer and at the time I didn t know whether I wanted to learn. But she decided to accept the challenge. After I got the consent of the principal I took the Apple equipment home with me every Friday carrying it up two flights of stairs so I could practice with it over the weekend Bixler said. And I did that for a year until I was addicted. Even now Bixler is keeping herself updated in the tech world getting tutoring in photo shop from Kearny art teacher Dan McShane another of her former Roosevelt students. Bixler kept active professionally serving as treasurer of the Kearny Education Association and as a charter member of the Kearny Pi chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa the international women s educators sorority. Stepping away from the classroom was a hard decision to make when it actually came to putting my signature to my letter [of retirement] Bixler said. I felt I still had the energy and all but I finally said it has to happen. Still Bixler admits it s been hard to stay away Since June 2011 she s returned to help with the national Read Across America program and she responded to a staff request to help with the planting of tulips and daffodils on school grounds. She and her husband Ed have volunteered to serve on the steering committee for the newly emerging Kearny Community Garden spearheaded by Jenny and David Mach at Riverbank Park.

When the pump comes on to feed the toilets it s airlocked. Still by Saturday according to Santos most pending construction issues had been 01 successfully dealt with but still remaining he said was an irksome design issue. Some of the volunteers who staff the concessions have told Santos and members of the Kearny Recreation Commission that they won t be able to see the games and that it will be hard to sell the concessions. They contend that the stand window is too small and not high enough to easily access customers so if you re taller than say 5-feet-six you ve got to bend down to look into the booth to talk to the person inside Santos said. Also he said because of the tight quarters it s hard for two people to work together inside the concession stand. And because the stand is located in a difficult corner of the building the folks inside cannot get a clear view of what s happening on the field Santos said. So we ve got a space that s inefficient and inconvenient for both the workers and the public the mayor said. Santos said there may be a structural way to remedy the problem and to that end he s trying to get estimates of what the work would cost and whether there s money available to do it. The Musial Group of Mountainside were the architects on the job he said.

We won seven games the first year then had 15 wins the next Cantarella said. Then we won 18 games three years in a row. We were ranked among the Top 20 in the state for a while. However last year Cantarella saw the bottom drop out. Fielding a very inexperienced and young team the Buccaneers won only two games. It was tough Cantarella said. Cantarella was hoping for better things in 2013 but that hasn t been the case as Belleville has struggled to a 1-9 record. Last Friday afternoon the Buccaneers played neighboring rival Bloomfield well for four innings then suffered through one bad inning that led to another resulting in yet another loss. Unfortunately that s been the case Cantarella said. It just seems to be our M.O. We play well for three or four innings then one thing leads to the next and at the end of the game we ve lost again. However Cantarella can t praise the collective attitude of his team enough. Even though we were losing 11-0 you would think we were winning by the way they were cheering and had each other s back Cantarella said. We keep trying hard but we have that one bad inning that kills us. Last week the Buccaneers dropped a 1-0 contest to Kearny which has only one loss all season. That run came in the top of the seventh inning. It could be tougher than what it is but the girls are the reason why I keep with it Cantarella said. They re coming to practice every day and working hard to get better. They are all working to get better and that s a positive. I see the positive signs every day a little thing here and there. I see improvements. In the game against Bloomfield last Friday Cantarella said that his team had better at-bats. We had better swings on the ball and worked the count a little better Cantarella said. I have to be able to take the little positive things that come out of every game.

I can see the improvement from March 15 to March 30 from April 1 to April 15. We re making strides. We re getting there. It s good to see someone as dedicated and devoted as Chris Cantarella keeping a positive approach because the Belleville softball program needs him to remain on track.

The Kardinals only failed to receive a medal in the 4x100meter relay. The rest of the meet the Kards were golden. It was a great day Perez said. We never won before. We came close a couple times but never won. This was something that we were going after to try to win. Perez gave credit to some of his unsung heroes like Mariah Davilla. She was excellent Perez said. She does a bunch of things for us from the 200-meter to the 1 600 as well as the long jump and triple jump as well. She s matured a lot and developed a lot of mental toughness. Sophomore Chelsea DaSilva was also impressive competing in the hurdles for the first time and helping the Kards come away with two gold medals. It was nice to get the whole team involved Perez said. A meet like this is truly a team effort. It was a bit of a challenge for the kids and the coaches especially with the strategy involved putting the right kids in the right places. Perez credited assistant coach Jim Cifelli for helping with the strategy. We went back and forth a couple times with it over which kids to use Perez said. Jim was a big help. And the Kardinals had a county championship to celebrate. It really is a nice feeling Perez said. They all came together to get it done. It was a very good meet for us.

Combined they put on a pitching clinic that will last a lifetime. Neither pitcher gained the victory. Neither suffered the loss. They both pitched lights out into the gloaming into dusk. Dolaghan pitched nine scoreless innings allowing just four singles while striking out 10. Fego pitched 10 scoreless frames also allowing just four hits. But Fego fanned an astounding 19 batters while walking just one. Fego s 19 strikeouts is the third highest single game mark in the state this season and set a new school record. Harrison won the game 1-0 in 11 innings but everyone is still buzzing about the performances of the two starters who matched zeroes all afternoon. He threw 125 pitches in 10 innings with 90 for strikes Marcantuono said of his ace. I think he has more talent than he thinks he has. He s confident and he s super talented with a live arm. Tommy was throwing his curve for strikes said Dolaghan who is the cousin of the player. While Fego was coming right at us and blowing us away Tommy was just pounding the strike zone. It was an all-around great game with two great pitching performances. For their efforts in the classic both Fego and Dolaghan have been selected as the Observer Co-Athletes of the Week this week. It s the first time that opposing players have been selected as Co-Athletes of the Week. But the game the pitching performances deserved recognition. I was just hoping that Ryan or Dolaghan didn t get the loss Marcantuono said. Because both pitchers deserved to win and both teams deserved to win. They both pitched their hearts out. Fego has been a member of the North Arlington pitching staff for the last three years but he has really showed his talents this season. I definitely feel like I ve gotten bigger and stronger Fego said. I can attack people now in the count. I definitely feel like I have more velocity and my breaking ball is better. I spent a lot of time in the weight room and did a lot more cardio workouts to help with my stamina. Fego said that the workouts helped his stamina as well. My velocity was the same from the first inning through the tenth Fego said. I wanted to do whatever I could to keep us in the game. It was a once-in-a-lifetime game and it just happened at the same time for both of us. Dolaghan said that he felt a sense of importance since he was one of only four returning players. I had to step up and be a leader Dolaghan said. I story continued next page THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY APRIL 24 2013 19 share honors after pitching gems worked out a lot to get ready for the season. I built up my strength by lifting. I also grew a little more. I ve been throwing strikes. A lot of what I do is location. I m not afraid to throw my curve or changeup at any time. Dolaghan also developed a special pitch. He now has a knuckleball Sean Dolaghan said. I watched R.A. Dickey (the former Mets Cy Young Award winner) and started throwing it with my friends Tom Dolaghan said. I just started throwing it and it works. I use it maybe five times a game in key situations. Tom Dolaghan is also a confident pitcher now. I have five different pitches I can throw for strikes Dolaghan said. This was one of the most fantastic games I ve ever been in. I m trying not to let it get to my head. But this really helped my confidence. Fego is doing the same. My velocity was up and I was trying to blow it by them said Fego who might continue his career at the County College of Morris or Lackawanna Junior College in the fall. Both of us had great pitching performances. It is almost fitting that neither of us lost. I m still in shock about the game. I always thought I was capable of this. Now I m confident. It reminds me again that I am capable of it. Marcantuono said that Fego has enjoyed a great season thus far. His record doesn t show how good he s been Marcantuono said. He s been so valuable to us as a hitter as well. He had three hits and three RBI against Lyndhurst. He s been dominant. He just doesn t have the wins to show for it. Coach Dolaghan thinks his cousin is making strides toward consistent stardom. He s also a better hitter this season Sean Dolaghan said. He s our No. 2 hitter and has been making solid contact every at-bat. He plays shortstop when he s not pitching and doing a great job. He s been very surprising thus far and he could turn into an excellent player. And both can say that they had a major part in pitching and playing in a game of a lifetime.

DiVincenzo Jr. and Gov. Chris Christie officially opened the Sea Lion Sound Exhibit in Essex County Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange. What makes this attraction even more special is that it returns sea lions to the Turtle Back animal family for the first time in over 20 years and its opening coincides with the zoo s 50th anniversary. Developing the exhibit was a massive undertaking and was only possible because of the widespread support and confidence we received from a host of sponsors including the Zoological Society of New Jersey NJ Green Acres PNC Bank Covanta Energy philanthropist David Tepper and the Essex County Recreation and Open Space Trust Fund he noted. The Sea Lion Sound Exhibit is located in the center of the zoo near the Penguin Coast Exhibit. This new natural habitat-themed display is the largest exhibit developed in Turtle Back s history and features an 82 000-gallon pool for sea lions and a 1 600-gallon touch tank for sting rays and sharks along with space for education programs and special events. Visitors can feed these animals for a 2 fee. The exhibit also includes rock formations where the mammals can bathe in the sun. Seals will be added to the exhibit later this summer. There are several viewing areas around the exhibit which enables visitors to see the sea lions and seals whether they are on land or under water. The exhibit is designed to resemble an ocean village on the west coast. The visitors entrance area looks like a boat dock decorated with nautical flags boats and wharf artifacts. The buildings look as though they have been weathered by the climate and ocean. Other features of the exhibit include an outdoor 500-square-foot foot deck and an indoor 2 450-square-foot room where small functions and events can be hosted restroom facilities for visitors and a husbandry area to house the exhibit s complex life support systems animal holding and breeding facilities. It is the second waterrelated exhibit at Turtle Back Zoo following the Tropical Currents Aquarium which opened in September 2010. Clarke Caton Hintz Architecture Planning Landscape Architecture of Trenton received a 277 449 contract to design the exhibit. Arco Construction Group from Elizabeth was awarded a publicly bid contract of 5.485 million to perform the construction work. The Essex County Department of Public Works monitored the project to address issues that arose Photo courtesy Glen Frieson Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo Jr. reaches into the touch tank to feed the sting rays as Gov. Chris Christie and his daughter Bridget watch. The touch tank is one of the elements of the new Sea Lion Sound Exhibit that opened at Essex County Turtle Back Zoo on Wednesday April 10. This natural habitat-themed display is the largest exhibit developed in Turtle Back s history. during construction. Funding for the exhibit was provided through grants from the New Jersey Green Acres Program the Essex County Recreation and Open Space Trust Fund the Zoological Society of New Jersey PNC Bank Covanta Energy and philanthropist David Tepper from Short Hills. In addition a 1 surcharge was added to Zoo admissions in 2011 and is expected to raise approximately 1.2 million from 2011 to 2014. DiVincenzo said that the new Sea Lion Exhibit is anticipated to attract 50 000 additional visitors a year which should increase zoo revenue by 350 000 (based on the children s rate of 7 per visitor). Current hours for the zoo are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 30 p.m. Admission is 11 for adults 8 for children and senior citizens and free for children under age 2..

For the long-term Van Riper a department with 21 employsaid that with local redevelopees is to focus on vehicle maintenance in the aftermath ment and construction proceeding along with increased of Hurricane Sandy which volume of traffic through town did quite a bit of damage to particularly on days when the DPW rolling stock. DPW from 04 the Red Bulls are home he sees his challenge as keeping the roads safe and clean and keeping taxpayers happy with their services. Van Riper said the town is also counting on him to schedule senior citizen transportation maintain roads fix potholes clean up any debris weeds uncut grass and graffiti from municipal properties make sure traffic lights are working properly and supervise garbage pickups. Asked about snow removal another of his responsibilities Van Riper said I think we re the best in the state at the job which he credits to DPW employees whom he described as hard-working individuals and I plan on having their trust.
