Belgrove 2-family rejected By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY You could say the deck was stacked against them before they got to the table. First the new owners of 612 Belgrove Drive were mistakenly told by the town construction office that their newly acquired property was in an R-2 zone and that it could accommodate a 2-family home which was their intent. Then after they closed on the property and they applied for permits to build the town informed them oops forget about that 2-family that property is zoned for a medical office 1-family use so you ll need to apply for a use variance. Now the die was cast Belgrove Drive residents led by two politically-connected neighbors lined up in earnest against the owner s proposed split-level duplex with high steps and a garage in front and persuaded the seven members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment to shoot it down unanimously. All the zoning commissioners said they felt for the plight of the owners but still concluded that the proposed duplex with garage out front would clash with the existing neighborhood.

Not to mention a bunch of cooperative buinesses that have allowed their windows to be transformed from plate glass to figuratively speaking canvases. Over the course of two days last week -- Wednesday and Thursday -- some 60 to 70 KHS kids took to the streets with brushes and paint creating colorful floral displays as part of the KUEZ s second annual Windows of Spring project. First launched last year it proved to be a popular and successful promotion prompting residents and visitors alike to tour the town to view the murals and patronize the participating businesses. Part of the project involves a contest a hunt for Kearny Kardinals hidden among some of the flowers. There are 18 KUEZ businesses with decorated windows but only five will feature the KHS mascot. Find all five (look sharp ) and you can be eligible to win a KUEZ shopping spree. John Peneda KUEZ coordinator said Windows of Spring arose from a brainstorming session last year. He and KUEZ publicist Linda Kraus-D Isa were discussing promotional projects and Linda came up with this idea Peneda said. She knew it had worked in another town.

Belleville Fire Capt. Scott Wentworth said the Fire Department received a 911 emergency call at 11 37 p.m. about people trapped in a singlefamily wood frame house at 16 Hickory St. off Chestnut St. near the Nutley border. Wentworth said the fire originated on the first floor and extended up the attic. He said a 43-year-old grandmother and 2-year-old female toddler had climbed out a second-floor bedroom window onto the rear roof of the building and Belleville Police officers used a neighbor s ladder to climb up and safely escort the pair down to safety. Additionally Wentworth T said three dogs were safely removed from the building and were administered oxygen outside. Wentworth said the civilians were taken initially to Clara Maass Medical Center Belleville where they were stabilized and then transferred to St. Barnabas Hospital in Livingston for more entensive treatment. As of Monday both were listed in good condition fire officials said. No injuries to firefighters were reported. Wentworth said the fire was brought under control by midnight and wrapped up at 1 30 a.m. Cause of the fire remains under investigation he said. The building which suf- fered interior damage was tagged as an unsafe structure Wentworth said. Battalion Chief Richard Cavanagh served as tour com- mander at the fire scene. Ten Belleville firefighters aboard two engines and a ladder truck were assisted by 15 mutual aid firefighters. Nutley supplied an engine and ladder truck Bloomfield a pumper and Kearny a ladder truck. -- Ron Leir HIGHEST CASH PAID ON THE SPOT FOR YOUR OLD GOLD & DIAMONDS Arlington Jewelers Professional Jeweler & Diamond Expert for over 35 Years Mother s Day & Spring Special Gold is Near 1 400 per oz.

Dr. Richard Ekstein and his staff devoted their Saturday to help the unemployed community and were glad that they did. The event ran smoothly as all patients arrived promptly for their scheduled appointments. Ekstein said he sponsored the event because in the difficult economy sometimes the extra money for dental work is simply not affordable but people have a need that should be addressed so that a simple procedure would not turn into a larger problem if it went uncared for. Hygienists Liz and Sharon worked diligently on a wide range of people. They scaled polished and took x-rays and found that most patients had taken good care of their teeth.

I d see a lot of him we d be at the same practice (varsity and junior varsity) on Harvey Field. It was like a war zone. Growing up Turowski didn t really pull for any one team though he remembers his dad being a follower of former Cardinals great Stan Musial probably because he was Polish and very anti-Yankee. Some years later after he went to college got married and had kids Turowski s son Steve Jr. (he prefers Ziggy ) became a devoted follower of pitcher Roger Clemens then playing for Boston. My son who was around 8 or 10 at the time got me into the Sox he said. That would be in the early 80s. So following up on his high school connection Turowski called up someone in town who had Stanley s contact information and managed to get in touch with his former teammate. Stanley remembered him Turowski said. [Kearny] is a small town you knew the guys who played ball. Bob was very gracious about it Turowski said. He d get us tickets six seven times a year and he d take me and Ziggy into the [Sox] dugout and introduce us around. The best thing about it was half my family on my mother s side still live in the Boston area so we always had a place to stay when we went up there for a game. Sometimes they d drive up without having seats waiting for them. We d go to maybe 20 games a year Turowski said. Gripped by a wave of diamond fever Turowski began amassing a vast collection of thousands of vintage baseball cards and watching games when he wasn t at the ballpark. I get Baseball Channel every year I don t know how my wife [Margarita] stands it he said. Margarita who emigrated to the U.S. from her native Cuba around 1962 remembers liking the newly emerging Mets while living initially in Staten Island N.Y. but noted that when we got married we became Sox fans. She s retired from teaching language arts at Kearny s Lincoln School. The couple s two kids Steve Jr. and Elaine were sportsminded Steve Jr. aside from being a Sox devotee played football for Lyndhurst High and Elaine has coached Lyndhurst Girls Softball for the past several years. It was three summers ago that the great experiment began. see RED SOX FAN page 10 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 8 2013 05 Zinna leaving after 27 years on bench By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent BELLEVILLE fter 27 years on the bench Belleville Municipal Court Judge Frank J. Zinna is calling it quits. June 30 will be Zinna s last day on the township payroll. Zinna was coming up for reappointment to another three-year term but in a surprising development the judge submitted a letter of resignation last month which was accepted by the governing body. Karen Smith who serves as Belleville s alternate judge will take over Zinna s duties. She ll preside over day court sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and night sessions every other Wednesday at least for now. Zinna s departure comes on the heels of the township s suspension of Municipal Court Administrator Cheryl Jeannette and her replacement effective April 1 by part-time Interim Administrator Kathleen Laudicini at 35 an hour for 20 hours per week. Neither the township nor the New Jersey Division of the Courts would disclose any information about the matter saying it was confidential. Zinna said he couldn t discuss it either. It ll be sad to see him go said Township Manager Kevin Esposito referring to the departing judge. But I guess everyone has the right to kick back especially someone who s served the township 40 years. Zinna has been a township employee for the past four decades After getting a B.S. degree in business from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1968 and a law degree from A Belleville Chief Judge Frank Zinna Seton Hall Law School in 1972 (he graduated cum laude and was associate editor of the Law Review) he was hired as counsel to the Belleville Zoning Board of Adjustment for a year. He moved on to assistant township attorney serving in that post from 1975 to 1979 then township attorney from 1979 to 1986 before his appointment as chief judge in 1986. He also chaired the Nutley Juvenile Conference committee from 1973 to 1979 and was assistant counsel to the N.J. State Senate from 1982 to 1986. In 1973 he joined a Nutley law firm now known as Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo where he is a partner and where he says he will continue the private practice of law. However at the same time as he quits the Belleville bench Zinna said he ll also be severing his ties as presiding judge for the municipal courts of Morris and Sussex counties a position he s held since 1993. I ll be 68 in June Zinna said. There s a lot of time and travel involved visiting courts [in Morris and Sussex] traveling to Trenton for meetings and that s time away from my personal practice. At 69 it s the right time to get out gracefully. ... And I won t be getting up in the middle of the night anymore to take care of [applications for] restraining orders. By shedding his judicial responsibilities Zinna said he ll also have more time for his family. My wife and I have three grandkids he noted. Asked how life in the halls of justice has changed during his judicial tenure Zinna said It s changed dramatically. Since I first started as presiding judge 22 years ago the municipal courts have elevated themselves with training. Zinna should know. He s been vice chairman of the New Jersey Supreme Court Practice Committee for Municipal Courts since 2008 a member of the Conference of Presiding Judges for Municipal Courts (and former chairman) since 1992 and has co-chaired since 2011 the Comprehensive Judicial Orientation Program Committee. Zinna said he and his col- leagues finalized a program for orienting new municipal court judges first they must be trained by a presiding judge sitting with us for a minimum of three hours then there are four-day training periods where we visit their courtrooms. Beyond that Zinna said there are several annual conferences that all judges must attend. The most recent one focused on case management and in particular relieving DWI cases that tend to be backlogged he said. When I first started practicing law Zinna recalled in one jurisdiction in Sussex the bench was literally a folding table in a hallway. You just don t find that sort of thing anymore. Today s courts are typically outfitted with sound recordings and some form of security. Belleville Municipal Court s annual case volume has grown to about 20 000 cases Zinna estimated. A good proportion of those cases tend to be drug-related and DWI matters he said. Karen [Smith] and I work hard to maintain a minimum backlog. We just got a grant for training purposes that s earmarked for municipalities that are close to big cities [like Newark for example] and geared toward the handling of drug cases Zinna added. And the newest development upcoming based on a recommendation by Zinna and Smith is the opportunity for defendants found guilty of municipal infractions to pay court-levied fines with plastic. On April 9 the township governing body authorized advertising for bids for the private collection of electronic credit debit card service for municipal court and for receiving those bids on Thursday May 9 at 11 a.m. in the second-floor council see ZINNA RETIRES page 23 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 Open 7 Days a Week Stuffed Angus Buger facebook.com theangrycoffeebean Make your Mother s Day reservations early Stuffed French Toast in olf season once aga It s g INJURED ON THE JOB RX DUH HQWLWOHG WR EHQH WV &XVWRP &OXEV & Complete Custom Golf Club Repair TJM Andrew J.

And that s just how Tennessee newspapers characterized the state s ag-gag bill now awaiting the governor s signature. Ag-gag bills criminalize whistleblowing that exposes animal abuses unsafe working conditions and environmental problems on factory farms. Instead of encouraging whistleblowing and preventing these violations ag-gag laws ensure that consumers and regulatory authorities are kept in the dark. Iowa Kansas Missouri Montana North Dakota and Ag-Gag Laws and Freedom of the Press Utah have enacted ag-gag laws but such bills were defeated in eight other states thanks to a strong outcry from the public and newspaper editors. In 2013 new aggag bills were introduced in Arkansas California Indiana Nebraska New Hampshire New Mexico North Carolina Pennsylvania Tennessee Vermont and Wyoming. The language has been invariably drafted by the infamous anti-consumer American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Thirty newspapers and 60 national animal protection workers rights civil liberties public health food safety and environmental conservation organizations have recently gone on record as strongly opposing ag-gag bills. Our government must never restrict our right and obligation to know where our food comes from.

Police said they responded to a Franklin Ave. location at 1 55 a.m. on a report of a medical call. There they said they found a man with a bloodied face spitting up blood claiming to be missing a tooth and unsure what had happened. He was taken to the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey for treatment. However witnesses told police they saw the man being punched repeatedly by two men who fled on foot. After getting descriptions of the alleged assailants police said they found men matching those descriptions in the area. Police charged the suspects Steven Scharton 31 of Nutley and Dennis Harvey 25 of Lyndhurst with aggravated assault. While enroute to headquarters police said Scharton shouted profanities and racial epithets at the officers persistently kicked the rear driver s side window of the patrol car and ignoring commands to stop managed to kick out the rear window causing it to shatter. For that he was additionally charged with criminal mischief. After Scharton was cuffed police said they noticed blood on both of his hands along with blood droplets on his boots and shirt.

Here are other incidents logged for the past week in the Nutley Police blotter May 2 At 4 16 p.m. police responded to a Washington Ave. location on a call of a man down possibly having a seizure. Police said they found Matthew McMahon 26 of Clifton lying on his side shaking and inhaling a blue can of Dust Destroyer Compressed gas duster. Police said McMahon was also carrying a bag of seven additional cans of the same item. Nutley Volunteer Emergency & Rescue Squad checked him out but he refused further medical aid. McMahon was issued summonses charging him with inhaling fumes of toxic chemicals to cause intoxification and possession of drug paraphernalia. May 1 Two apparent scams were reported by township residents. One resident reported getting a call from someone claiming to have money from the government for the resident but then asking for checking account information so the money could be deposited. Police said upon trying to redial the number shown on caller ID it was no longer in service. Another resident told police someone called them saying that their son was in an accident and needed several thousand dollars wired to an account to cover the cost of surgery. But police said their son was uninjured. When an attempt was made to reach the number it was no longer a valid number police said. 7 hWdab_d 7l[% Xki_d[ii owner called police at 1 59 p.m. to report an incident of shoplifting.

Police said they found no objects in the area but speculated that a lacrosse ball may have shattered the window. No one entered the school they said. April 28 A Burnett Place resident called police at 6 14 a.m. to report that the side door to their home had been damaged some time ago. Police said they noticed that the molding around the window in the door appeared to have been pulled away from the glass and they spotted two pry marks high on the door casement.

But it was told to us last week by lifelong Kearny resident John Jarvie 91 a veteran of that Ghost Army whose predilection for memorabilia was a direct cause of the documentary s being created in the first place. Jarvie has scores of photo albums and scrapbooks preserving the history of his family (one album is dated 1881) and his exceptional military service. Jarvie s niece Martha Garvin of Massachusetts had borrowed one of the WWII scrapbooks for her son who had asked if he could use it for a high school project. Garvin showed it to a Massachusetts filmmaker Rick Beyer who came hurrying down to Kearny in 2005 to meet Jarvie see the rest of the collection and learn more about the 23rd s mission. Beyer wrote produced and directed the upcoming documentary which features Jarvie and he co-authored with illustrator Elizabeth Sayles a companion book.

I thought it would be tremendous to paint it as the Green Monster. He was referring of course to the towering left field wall in Fenway Park which was first painted green in 1947. I even called the Red Sox for the name of their paint supplier. It turns out there s a color called Fenway Fence Green. Turowski bought two gallons of the stuff and went to work. Along the way he decided to include a replica of the Fenway scoreboard by duplicating one of the last 2004 American League playoff games between Boston and New York. He cut out a picture of Fenway from a sports magazine to use as a guide for his design. I had to measure it all out.

Of course with this part of New Jersey being dominated by Yankee fans Turowski s prized possession didn t always draw rave reviews. Nutley Mayor Alphonse Petracco a dedicated fan of the Bronx Bombers has shunned the artifact. My next-door neighbor is a major Yankee fan Torowski said. He busted my chops about it.

But it turns out that the bank manager is a former [Kearny] student of mine so I talked to her about it and that just stopped.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 8 2013 11 IMMIGRATION from are fugitives from immigration court. As an immigration fugitive Frageri-Carlos is a priority for removal by ICE. He was arrested by ICE officers April 16 2013 outside his home in Kearney [sic] N.J. He is currently detained at Delaney Hall [a federal detention center on Doremus Ave. in Newark] pending removal from the United States. In a phone interview Rodas said his client doesn t have any criminal history. The removal order wasn t because he committed a crime. Asked if the ICE allegation about illegal entry to the U.S. was accurate Rodas said 01 and Kearny. Rodas said his client didn t have anyone that could help him with his legal status. Frageri-Carlo s fianc e Flaviane de Souza said she came to the U.S. in 1996 with her parents from San Paolo Brazil. Her mother has since become a U.S. citizen and de Souza has applied for a visa. De Souza s family settled in Massachusetts and Flaviane s introduction to Leandro came on a social website and an online relationship developed. Their first face-to-face meeting she said came in April 2009 at a rodeo which is held annually in Brockton Mass. After I got pregnant [with system too. It s going to be a hard choice for us to make. I just don t want to think about it. A lot of people are going to get hurt. I m just trying to think positive for now. Joanne Gottesman clinical professor at Rutgers University Law School Camden and director of the Immigrant Justice Clinic said that the Frageri-Carlo situation isn t an isolated occurrence these days. ICE enforcement of federal immigration laws in New Jersey and elsewhere is continuing and expanding under the Obama administration even now on the verge of immigration reform. And although the expectation is that ICE would prioritize going after criminal suspects in the enforcement of immigration laws Gottesman said the patterns of cases show that enforcement laws are not being uniformly or systematically applied. Kearny Mayor Alberto Santos who has seen the online petition said he doesn t know the individuals involved but he believes that the number of ICE cases have more than doubled under Obama. Santos recalled a case four years ago when Sen. Robert Menendez interceded on behalf of an undocumented Uruguayan family in Kearny facing deportation despite the fact that their child a student at Franklin School was on dialysis and near death. Fortunately Santos said a year s deferment was granted and the child got surgery and survived. That case he said illustrated that sometimes a compelling reason for staying in the U.S. can save an individual or family from deportation. Just because you ve been here and established roots doesn t do it he said.

[Frageri-Carlo] did enter the country without permission looking for a better life. He has been working recently as a laborer in construction in Essex and Hudson counties. In the past he worked as a waiter and bartender. That s how he supports his daughter and fianc e. According to his attorney Frageri-Carlo is from Cuiaba capital of the Brazilian state Mato Grosso in the western part of the country. After graduating from secondary school the equivalent to high school in the U.S. he sold appliances. Rodas said Frageri-Carlo s mother left Brazil when he was 17 and five years later when both his mother and sister had settled in the U.S. he decided to join them. Since then he s lived in Newark s Ironbound section Elizabeth Giovana now age 2] Flaviane said I decided to join Leo in New Jersey. She also has another daughter Leticia now age 10 whose biological father lives in New Hampshire. If Frageri-Carlo is forced to leave the U.S. de Souza and her fianc face some hard choices. If de Souza opted to follow Frageri-Carlo back to Brazil she said it s unlikely that Leticia s dad would object to her taking his daughter with her. My 10-year-old has been crying de Souza said. She understands [what could happen]. She barely sees her [biological dad. Now she may lose her new dad. Following her fianc back to their native country is a no-win proposition she said.

The Germans would listen secure in the knowledge they had pinpointed an American unit but as Beyer s book notes never catch on that the real unit and its radio operator were long gone. The 406th Engineer Combat Company executed construction and demolition tasks and most importantly provided perimeter security for the Ghost Army. Jarvie had heard about the Army s needing artists in 1942 although the concept of the Ghost Army (also called the Blarney Units ) would not be authorized until 1943. The enlistees initial primary job was creating and painting camouflage art. News of the need was circulated in art schools Jarvie recalled and you could get into the unit only if you enlisted. You also had to be cleared by both the local and State Police. In one of Jarvie s scrapbooks is the 1942 letter signed by then-Kearny Police Chief John N. Hemsley attest- 09 ing to the applicant s sterling character. So at age 20 he left the family home at 4 Madison Ave. for basic training at Fort Meade in Maryland. Then it was on to Camp Forest in Tennessee and eventually to England. It was only in England that the companies that would make up the Ghost Army came together Jarvie said since they had all been trained in different places stateside. When they were given their assignment we were told Chances are you re not going to come back from this Jarvie remembered. We carried very light arms and were sent into places where there was no army to make believe there was an army there. We set up fake artillery to draw fire. And we got shelled. We got shelled a lot. They had 300 rubber tanks each of which could be folded into a 2.5-foot x 3-foot bag. They also had to transport the inflatable artillery jeeps planes tanks trucks et al. We got artillery fire all the time Jarvie said. The inflatables used to leak regularly but sometimes it took out our guys too. And he wasn t talking about the inflatable soldiers. Why use artists for this work Because you have to have a concept of how this is going to look Jarvie said. When you want concept you get artists. Your concept is everything. You ask What is this going to look like from the air So when a troop emplacement was set up it had realistic touches. The rubber trucks and tanks had left tracks in the soil tracks created by bulldozers. The vehicles the artillery the planes were hidden but hidden so the Germans could see them Jarvie said. When the Germans returned ready to attack there was nothing left but the tracks Javie said. The Ghost Army was gone. But not all the Ghost Army s time was spent in foxholes and among the hedgerows. Part of their job was to spread false information by word-of-mouth and this they did by patronizing the bars and cafes in nearby towns and villages and talking among themselves. France was loaded with spies Jarvie said. There was always someone listening. But the stuff we dropped for them to hear was all phony. They had to look the part of whatever American unit they were impersonating at any given time. Although the Ghost Army had its own insignia (see illustration that accompanies this story) it wasn t seen until after the war. Instead the soldiers carried patches of various U.S. units and would sew them on their uniforms as needed for a particular deception. In all they took part in over 20 decoy operations. Among them was Operation Brittany which led the Nazis to believe that Gen. George Patton s troops were heading west. They weren t. Patton was moving east to encircle the German 7th Army. And in 1945 as the American 9th Army prepared to cross the Rhine into Germany the Ghost Army impersonated two full U.S. divisions 30 000 troops diverting German attention and allowing the 9th to carry out its attack with minimal resistance. On July 2 1945 Jarvie and the others returned to U.S. soil -- but not to the end of war. They were sent to Pine Camp (now Fort Drum) in upstate New York there to start training for the invasion of Japan. Training that about a month later became moot due to the explosion of two atomic bombs. Mark your calendars for May 21 and check your TV listings. There s much more to learn about the Ghost Army--and the artwork they created while fighting a war. And as described in the book along with danger there could be humor. One anecdote Two Frenchmen on bicycles accidentally got through the perimeter. And what they thought they saw was four GI s picking up a 40ton Sherman tank and turning it around. Ghost Army soldier Arthur Shilstone told the bewildered civilians The Americans are very strong. Roma Ristorante )DPLO 2ZQHG 2SHUDWHG IRU HDUV Meet Cpl.

Afterwards Domingues a Lyndhurst-based optometrist with offices at 348 Ridge Road said I feel that for the most part the board did what they could. But I also feel that unfortunately because of a lot of political pressure by the councilwoman [Carol Jean Doyle] and the mayor s aide [Lyla DeCastro] who went knocking on my neighbors doors I don t know if I got a fair hearing. It seems to me there was a preconceived notion because of friendships and relationships with board members [who were] maybe not basing my case on the testimony that was presented. The testimony elicited by Bennett from his witnesses indicated that the new owners of 612 Belgrove wanted to demolish a small single family home that had also served as a dental office until the dentist s retirement and build a two-family side-by-side split level duplex with three master bedrooms and a garage to accommodate Domingues and her sister. I loved the location Domingues said. It had a big lot for a big house. At least twice before closing on the property in July 2012 family members were told by town construction office employees the property was zoned for R-2 use and presented with a zoning certificate reinforcing that claim. It wasn t until late September 2012 after the family had engaged a Lyndhurst BRADY BRADY & REILLY architect for the project that Domingues brother-in-law Ricardo Esteves was told he couldn t build a 2-family house. When they told me that I was very confused Esteves said. Bennett reasoned that the site a 10 600 square foot lot was particularly suited to an R-2 use being larger than most of the adjacent properties and [would] not represent introduction of a new nonconforming use. Further he said it would preserve the character of the neighborhood maintain and improve the quality of housing and protect against infill of the residential neighborhood. But neighbors weren t having any of that. Calling Belgrove Drive a special street in Kearny Councilwoman Doyle said the block has no duplexes and that most homes there are Victorians. She said that given that a member of the family was an experienced contractor she found it curious that the owners would go back to the construction office several times and ask the same questions two three four times. DeCastro said many homes on Belgrove have beautiful large lots with onefamily homes. That s how it should remain. When it was noted by one of Bennett s experts that a building directly across from the former dental office was a multi-family DeCastro said it s been used for that purpose since the 1930s it s not new construction. Deirdre Sullivan said she was owner of a huge pagoda home on Belgrove. It s a one-family home she said. I d like to see it stay that way. Other neighbors including James Lawless George Fernandez and Paul Shalvoy all agreed with that central premise. In summary Bennett asked the board to show some leniency to the owners who he said purchased the property for 225 000 with the expectation that they d be able to put up a 2-family home. A mistake was made he added. That happens. But it precludes them from doing what they want without your permission. These people aren t investors Bennett continued. They want to live in the property. And he noted they did their best not to overextend the footprint of the house by see BELGROVE page 30 Experience. Expertise. Success. NO FEES UNLESS YOU RECOVER DAMAGES.

Real Estate Presented by Jarlynn Hyde Broker Owner Let s Talk SELLERS DON T MAKE YOURSELVES AT HOME Sellers with strong emotional attachments to their homes may want to extol the virtues of their properties to any and all prospective buyers however that may not help them sell their homes. In fact most real estate agents encourage sellers to leave their homes while they are being shown because their presence usually only serves to inhibit buyers. The more prospective buyers try not to step on owners toes the less likely they are to make honest assessments of the house that will lead to conclusive results. Therefore it is a good idea for sellers to remove any clutter and personal effects that stand in the way of potential buyers seeing onthe-market houses as their own homes. Having the seller present during an open house or showing of their property is almost always a bad idea. Their presence will make the buyer feel awkward and you want the buyer to feel as comfortable as possible when viewing a potential home.

After attending Brookdale Community College and playing baseball there D Errico walked away from the game he loved. I stayed away from baseball for two years said D Errico the Kearny native and Kearny High School grad. A lot happened to me in those two years. My Dad (Michael) passed away. It wasn t a good time for me. After the two-year respite D Errico first enrolled at Kean University. I tried out for the team there and stuck around for a few practices D Errico said. But I knew I wasn t going to be able to play there. So D Errico packed up his belongings and headed to New Jersey City University. I had to find my way back to the diamond D Errico said. At NJCU there was a familiar face already there namely D Errico s former Kearny teammate Kevin DeMauro. A great bond developed between us D Errico said. I knew who I could turn to. He was one of my own and knew what it was like to be a college baseball player. It really helped having Kevin there. For DeMauro it was like a reversal of roles. Nick took me under his wing when I was in high school being a couple of years older than me DeMauro said. We were teammates and friends so I tried to make him feel as comfortable as possible. It was great to play on the same diamond again. It s almost kind of unreal how it happened. D Errico (whose uncle David is one of the best soccer players to ever come out of Kearny and played professionally in the North American A return trip to county finals for Belleville volleyball John Spina had no idea what to expect from the Belleville High School boys volleyball team this season. After all Spina a proud alumnus of the school (Class of 1995) was just appointed as the boys head coach adding to the responsibilities he already owned as the girls head volleyball coach at the school. Plus the Buccaneers graduated seven players from last year s 20-win team that went to the Essex County Tournament finals and the NJSIAA North 1 sectional semifinals and was ranked for most of the season among the very best teams in the state. We had only one starter back from last year Spina said. The entire team was made up of sophomores and two juniors many of whom never played varsity volleyball before. But Spina had faith that the Buccaneers could develop into something special. I always have a lot of faith regardless of what other people say Spina said. I knew we could be competitive. I knew we had good athletes. The Buccaneers didn t exactly set the world on fire when the season began. We had a bit of a learning process in the beginning Spina said. It was a learning process for me as well because I never coached boys before. It was a faster paced game. But I knew once this team jelled they could be difficult to beat because of the young guys showing superior athleticism. I never coached a team with this team s athleticism. It s a phenomenal group. Spina believes that the current team learned a lot by watching last year s successful team perform. They got to play with last year s team and learned from them Spina said. I think they benefitted from that team. When I came in this year I felt like this team was trying to challenge last year s team. I also sensed that they responded to me they listened to me. They were very coachable kids. They trust me. When I look to my setter and tell him to do something he ll do it. It means a lot to have that kind of trust. see VIEW page N Photo by Ira Thor Nick D Errico (l.) and Kevin DeMauro became key components as the New Jersey City University enjoyed its best season in recent memory winning 17 games. The two young men from Kearny played huge roles for the Gothic Knights this spring. 17 Soccer League) and DeMauro were reunited as teammates once again this time at NJCU. I had been coaching a little at Harrison (High School) but I knew it wasn t time for me yet to hang up the cleats D Errico said. I still had the itch to play. As it turned out both Kearny products played prominent roles this season for the Gothic Knights who won 17 games including memorable victories over nationally ranked Kean and Ramapo. When the Gothic Knights upset Kean the Cougars were the No. 1-ranked team in the nation among NCAA Division III schools. The one thing I always knew about Kearny kids is that they are tough said second- year NJCU head baseball coach Jerry Smith. Nick and Kevin have that same mental toughness. I can t say enough good things about Kevin. He s a special kid a gamer the kind of guy that puts his teammates first. He ll do anything for the team as a closer as a starter. I knew his talents would come through this year. I knew that we had a chance to win any game Kevin pitches. DeMauro had a 2-6 record with a 5.57 ERA in 13 appearances eight of which were starts. D Errico came in and became the starting third baseman for the Gothic Knights but was moved to shortstop early in the season. see NJCU next page 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 8 2013 and batted .261 with no homers and eight RBI.

DeMauro is working toward a degree in fire science with the hope of eventually becoming a fireman when he graduates next May. D Errico is approaching a degree in health and physical education. He wants to become a teacher and coach. This gets the ball rolling D Errico said. I don t ever want to walk away from the game again. The two have another year together with the Gothic Knights. I m already looking forward to it DeMauro said. It s great that we have one more year together. It would be awesome if we could continue to win next year. I definitely feel like there are things I can improve on for next year D Errico said. We made a lot of progress this year. I feel we could be a team to beat next year. We could win it all. I think people are going to think twice about facing us DeMauro said. We put ourselves on the map a little. Now we re a threat. I definitely have going out as a winner next year in my mind already. And if the Gothic Knights do become winners next year it will be with the help of two talented young men from Kearny who took the long way home to becoming teammates once again. 6jV 6iR d 4 _eRTe V_dVd AVUZRecZT 4RcV 5c RcZR 5 Z_XfVd Optometric Physician Lic 270A0063100 %) CZUXV C RU j_UYfcde La doctora habla Espa ol Belleville DAV induction 201.438.8668 A doutora fala Portugu s ew Smile N WE OFFER Obtain a...

We Think of Your Teeth as a Work of Art straight games 25-22 and 26-24 the Buccaneers have advanced once again to the Essex County Tournament finals. Belleville will face defending champion Livingston in the title match Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Livingston. In defeating Bloomfield the Bucs were able to avenge a defeat suffered two weeks ago. And they managed to come back from being down 24-21 in the last game scoring the last five points to seal the victory. It said a lot to me the way they were able to come back said Spina who was a varsity wrestler at Belleville during his high school days helping the Bucs win county district and state sectional titles his senior year. Leading the way for the Bucs this year is sophomore outside hitter P.J. Gencarelli. The powerful Gencarelli who had a solid soccer season for the Bucs in the fall is among New Jersey s leaders in kills. He s been phenomenal Spina said of Gencarelli. He plays in the full rotation for us. He s extremely versatile. He does everything for us. Another sophomore out- Junior Edward Peralta is another middle hitter. Peralta leads the Bucs in blocks.

He has more than 350 assists this season which is among the top 10 in the state. He s improved his game a lot since the beginning of the year. Senior Carl Laroco is the team s libero and the lone returning starter from a year ago. Sophomore Edward Edghill is an opposite hitter who is solid defensively. Sophomore Kevin Vicente is the Bucs hustle player. We started Kevin in the Livingston Tournament and you could see he brings a spark to the rotation Spina said. He dove for a loose ball and ended up landing on a pile of folding chairs but still was able to make a play. He sacrifices himself for the good of the team.

I was both nervous and excited Zdanek said. It was a pretty big deal for us. I knew we hadn t won a game in the county tournament in a very long time. To be precise the Golden Bears hadn t won a single game in the Bergen County Tournament since 1991. That s before Zdanek and all of her teammates were even born. I had faith in Casey Lyndhurst head softball coach Elaine Catanese said. I was a little nervous but with Casey on the mound I knew we could play with anyone. There was a good sign. The Golden Bears have been so surprisingly dominant this season that they actually drew a home game in the Bergen County tourney against Pascack Valley a definite rarity for a small school like Lyndhurst. I knew nothing about them so that was a big concern Zdanek said. I knew they played in a good league (the Big North) so I had to be ready for anything. That s exactly what transpired. Zdanek was more than ready firing a five-hitter striking out nine in the process giving her 138 strikeouts on the season already surpassing last year s impressive total. At the plate Zdanek was dominant as well with a homer a double and three RBI leading the Golden Bears to an impressive 8-3 win the Golden Bears first win in the counties in 22 years. For her efforts Zdanek was selected as The Observer Athlete of the Week for last week. It marks the third straight year that Zdanek has earned the honor the first Lyndhurst female athlete to receive such a distinction. Catanese said that Zdanek and her fellow senior catcher Julieann Schneidenbach have been devastating at the plate since Catanese moved both seniors up in the batting order. We have Grace Tomko as our leadoff hitter followed by Casey and Julie Catanese said. All three together have been excellent. In the case of Casey she s doing way better than I could have imagined. She s always been good offensively but pitching she s been incredible. Catanese believes that Zdanek has developed into a fine pitcher. I think she s throwing a little harder than she ever did and she s much more confident Catanese said. Casey is in total control of the game when she s out there. When she s throwing she has an idea of where to throw it and then she does it. She s definitely a Photo by Jim Hague Lyndhurst senior pitcher Casey Zdanek. better pitcher. She s matured 110%. Catanese said that she meets with Zdanek before every game to go through the strategy. We talk prior to every game and she knows where she has to throw her screwball and where to throw her changeup. She does such a great job that I can t say enough about her. Zdanek said that she has improved as a pitcher. I think my changeup is a lot better Zdanek said. I m hitting my spots better and I m more accurate with all of my pitches. The changeup has definitely helped. In the offseason Zdanek trained with some of her teammates at FASST Training in Lyndhurst. We worked on my speed and strength Zdanek said. It helped a lot. I m throwing the ball a lot harder that s for sure. When I m hitting I m not doing anything differently except I see the ball a lot better. I see the ball coming in and I m having more discipline not swinging at balls outside anymore. I think I m more disciplined at the plate more see ATHLETE next page HAPPY MOTHER S DAY from 1 of only 14 Board Certified Prosthodonist in NJ Only Board Certified Implant Team in the area Smile Design Specialist GO TO A PRO Dr. Ekstein NEW REASON TO EXAMINE YOUNG EYES Amblyopia popularly referred to as lazy eye is the most common cause of vision problems among children. This condition usually develops before the age of six and results from one eye that does not develop good vision while the other eye does. As a consequence vision becomes blurred and depth perception may be lost. Thus amblyopia must be detected and treated as early as possible preferably in infancy or early childhood. Thus a new study takes on a good deal of importance as it recommends vision screening before age three to detect risk factors for amblyopia. Performing the screening exam at this early age was found to be as accurate as screening between the ages of three and six years. Primary eye care ranges from an annual eye exam for Amblyopia to diabetic and glaucoma screening as well as diagnosing and treatment for various other eye diseases. We analyze patient symptoms perform a regular eye exam and may test for glare disability and contrast sensitivity to make a diagnosis. The final decision to proceed with any treatment lies with you the patient. We re located at 20 Park Avenue Lyndhurst where we are truly concerned about your eyes. Please call us at 201 896-0096 (our optical shop 201 896-0007) to schedule an appointment. We re taking eye care into the new millennium. Come in and visit our optical shop.

I m sad that this is my last year in high school but excited that I m going to be able to continue to play. After Zdanek completes her studies at Drew she plans on becoming a math teacher.

Your correspondent feels privileged to have met this one. Karen Zautyk IMMIGRATION from one s native country or the threat of being politically or religiously persecuted in your country of origin for example can save the day he added. Santos said Congress needs to bear in mind that we have a very large population throughout the country of undocumented individuals who are performing jobs that are very hard to staff usually in the service trades such as the restaurant and landscaping industries typically working off the books. They should be paying taxes and their employers should be paying taxes not having them work 11 off the books. There should be a way to grant those individuals work status and later we can debate whether that should lead to a path to citizenship and I think it should. If we had mass deportations in the agriculture industry many farms would shut down. Santos himself an immigrant whose family had to wait two years before it could get into the U.S. from South America in 1970 said there s something else to bear in mind America s birth rate has slipped to just about 2%. If we fall below that admitting more immigrants could be the way to sustain the country s growth rate ultimately vital to the U.S. economy. This country was built by immigrants Santos said. We have to provide a path [to citizenship]. We can t make it so restrictive that we close the door. Meanwhile Rodas is doing what he can to keep his client in the U.S. I filed a motion to reopen his case with the Immigration Court in Boston the attorney said. Legally ICE can only hold someone for 180 days and execute an order for removal [from the country] within that time. But also by law a stay [of removal] automatically goes into effect when the Court receives the motion. The paperwork was delivered last week he said.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 8 2013 23 ZINNA RETIRES from 05 chambers at the Municipal Building 152 Washington Ave. We ve been encouraging [the township] to do it for some time Zinna said. I guess it was just a matter of working out the kinks. Other municipalities in New Jersey have been doing this. The plastic option was pitched Zinna said for several reasons. First an awful lot of people who end up in court are not carrying sufficient funds to pay a fine but they do have a debit or credit card so they can pay that way. Secondly it saves the court time setting out a payment schedule. And also those courts with that payment option are probably collecting more toward unpaid fines.

When they tried to calm her and take her away from her intended target she began screaming and a crowd started to gather police said. Fabula asked the target to move from the scene which she did.

OBITS from 25 BELGROVE from 14 providing for only 23% lot coverage. ... This isn t Clinton Ave. it s not Grand Place it s a little different. As the board voted member Sebastian Viscuso seemed to set the tone when he said I totally feel for these people because I have in my hand a document signed by [Town Construction Official] Michael Martello stating that [612 Belgrove] is in an R-2 zone. They went under the assumption they could build a 2-family home. They spent a lot of money. But I d prefer to see the garage flipflopped. Board member Cecilia Lindenfelser said she too felt empathy for the applicants but she said she wasn t convinced that 612 Belgrove was the only place you could go to build the duplex. And there s no basis to say it benefits the neighborhood [because] it doesn t fit in. And I m concerned about setting a precedent inviting other property owners to follow suit. Kearny is becoming dense said board member James Hill. We have unique neighborhoods and we need to preserve those neighborhoods. Board Vice Chairman Tony Capiti said that he too sympathized with the applicants but I can t see changing the [property s] use because you re setting a precedent. Board member Janice Barton found herself of two minds on the issue. While she objected to the duplex s design I don t like to see two front doors and steps going up that high she told the applicants You got bad information and something should be done about it. Board member Joseph Slavik found himself befuddled. I don t know what to say he said. But Board Chairman Richard Konopka didn t hesitate when he observed that the applicants duplex would be a beautiful home but not good for Belgrove Drive. Putting this up would not be conforming to the neighborhood. By a 4-3 margin the board voted to reject the application. Konopka Capiti Lindenfelser and Hill opposed the project while Barton Slavik and Viscuso favored it. Domingues said she was mulling over what if anything to do with the property. I do have the option of building a one-family house a nice modern home in the style I want it s not going to look like a ranch or Victorian home. I m also considering putting my professional office there. And if I do that I work six days a week so I want the neighbors to know that plenty of parking on the street will be taken up by my patients. I have to weigh my options. ... If I do build a home I will build a massive home within the limits for a 1-family home. I am not selling that house. Last week Martello was on vacation but Assistant Construction Official Anthony Chisari said that when the applicants brought 612 Belgrove a typographical error was to blame for the change to the previous R-2 template on the certificate of occupancy. That s where we went downhill and it snowballed from there Chisari said. Asked how that sort of error could be prevented in future Chisari said It s just a matter of scrutinizing the paperwork.
