May 15 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXV No. 52 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Rec coaches cautioned on conduct By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY The Kearny Recreation Commission has cautioned two of its volunteer coaches to clean up their act or risk the chance of being disciplined for any potential future missteps. Commission Chairwoman Lyla DeCastro Lawdanski said the seven members attending a special session held May 3 voted to send written warnings to Frank Goresh and Carlos Chavez to cease inappropriate language and conduct. Goresh a former president of Kearny Little League which is sponsored by the town s Recreation Department is the current coach of the Cali Little League senior baseball team. Chavez coaches the Applebee s Little League squad. Players are ages 14 and 15. The commission received a complaint from one of the coaches about an incident that happened during a game between the Cali and Applebee s teams played April 26 at the Gunnell Oval recreation complex and the commission felt it was serious enough to follow through according to DeCastro Lawdanski. To gather more information on the matter the commission met in closed session for more than two and a half hours Frisee COACHES page A new low Photos courtesy of N.J.

It s painted with the names of FDNY and NYPD and Port Authority first responders who died at Ground Zero on 9 11. Nice tribute right Dramatic statement of patriotism right We saw the truck which also is decorated with an image of the Twin Towers on the road once and thought those things. But we couldn t see who was driving. Turns out it was operated by leeches. Correction. Alleged leeches. On May 3 a state grand jury sitting in Mercer County indicted two New Jersey men for allegedly using the truck for phony fundraising collecting more than 50 000 supposedly for 9 11 charities and WTC victims families. Neither the legitimate charities nor the families saw a cent authorities said. And now the state Division of Criminal Justice would like to hear from anyone who see 9 11 SCAM page 08 Farewell to the chie By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent EAST NEWARK Hudson County s smallest municipal police force nine cops plus one special will be diminished by one on May 31. That s when Police Chief Kenneth Sheehan will bid farewell to the troops. I ll have 28 years and nine months on the job he said during a recent interview in his tiny office at Borough Hall. It s been a great career Sheehan said. I ve had a great working relationship with the mayor and council. They ve always been very supportive of my role. Returning the compliment Mayor Joseph Smith who named Sheehan acting chief in May 2000 and appointed him permanently in January 2002 lauded the chief with reviving the morale and performance of the department. He always would stick up for the [rank and file] Smith said. He always put them first. ... To have the men as happy as they are he should get the credit. And he led by setting a good example. The chief who received a 3% pay hike retroactive to Jan. 1 will retire with pension of about 8 000 per month.

It s all due to the U.S. Navy and Ken Bania the school district s science coordinator with a big assist from physics teachers Michael Naumoff and Marc Kasner. The students are participating in the 2013 National SeaPerch Challenge a competition that engages students in engineering concepts problem solving teamwork and technical applications in an underwater robotics program according to a Navy fact sheet. The Navy in partnership with the Association for Underwater Vehicle Systems International Foundation furnishes students with a kit of resources which they use to build a Remotely Operated Vehicle ROV in Navy parlance and guide it through a series of underwater maneuvers. Massachusetts Institute of Technology helped found the program in 2003. Judges grade students on the basis of performance design oral presentation planning and team spirit. Bania brought the idea of NHS experimenting with the program to Principal Denis Williams after seeing a SeaPerch demonstration at a National Science Teachers seminar in Atlantic City in May 2012. Williams agreed noting that SeaPerch is linked to a U.S. Department of Education national initiative O Mary Tortoreti President Robert Pezzolla General Manager ADVERTISING Natalie Rodriguez - Ulloa Classified Asst.to GM 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 Pachas Graphic Designer 531 Kearny Ave. Kearny N.J. 07032 Phone 201-991-1600 Fax 201-991-8941 www.theobserver.com aimed at encouraging more students to explore paths that may lead to future careers in the science technology engineering and math fields. After getting their ROV kits earlier this year students from different grade levels in the NHS engineering club put in many after-school hours assembling their robot (a contraption of PVC pipe and motors which weighs in at a little more than two pounds) testing out design features then putting it through its underwater paces in the school s outdoor koi pool. Nutley sent three teams to a preliminary regional competition March 25 at the City College of New York s Mahoney Pool in the basement of the Marshak Science Building on W. 138th St. and a seven-member team led by senior Nick Sherer and junior Gabe Tortora who are teammates on the Maroon Raiders gridiron squad was deemed good enough to advance to the nationals Williams said. It all began a bit more than three months ago recalled 17-year-old junior Monica Bobila when they provided us with the raw materials and instructions and the students took it from there. It took us about a month to tweak [the ROV] to the point where we felt it was ready Gabe 17 said. Senior Laurence Rafer 17 recalled that the rules permitted the students to build onto the basic specifications to some extent. They could spend up to 20 on modifications Naumoff said. see ROBOTS page Photo courtesy of Ken Bania Students prepare to assemble their ROV. 07 Photo by Ron Leir Students experiment with maneuvering ROV at NHS koi pool.

On Saturday April 20 the state firefighters union presented gold medals to six members of the HFD at the union s annual Valor Awards ceremony held this year at the Pines Manor in Edison. The gold medal is the top award given by the union which paid tribute to an elite group of the Bravest from around the state. A citation presented to the HFD outlines a narrative of a fire rescue performed by members of Tour 4 on Nov. 20 2012 for which the Harrison six Firefighters Willie McMahon Robert Underhill Joseph Zicchinella and David Prina Lt. Joseph Lang and Capt. John Dwyer were honored. At around 8 20 a.m. that day the HFD was dispatched to an apartment complex at 550 Central Ave. where there was a working fire with people on the scene reporting that a man was trapped in the second-floor apartment where the fire had originated. Following Dwyer upstairs Prina serving that day as acting lieutenant Zicchinella and Lang of Engine 3 stretched a line to thesecondfloor hallway where they were met by the mother of the man in the apartment T screaming that her son was in there. Lang and Prina forced open the door to the son s apartment where despite high heat and zero visibility they started to search the apartment. At the same time Dwyer directed Underhill and Zicchinella to raise a ground ladder to the apartment s balcony and begin a vent enter search operation from the opposite side of the apartment. McMahon meanwhile managed water supply for interior operations. Firefighters converging from opposite directions located the apartment s occupant who was unconscious and burned but still alive in the hallway between the bedroom and living room. Lang Prina Underhill and Zicchinella removed the man who was 6-feet-one and about 275 pounds to the balcony where lifesaving rescue breathing was begun. Zicchinella then re-entered the apartment and put out the remaining fire. A Reeves stretcher was sent up to the balcony the man was placed inside removed from the building and transported to the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey Newark. Had it not been for the extraordinary effort and teamwork displayed at this incident there certainly would have been a much different outcome the citation said. -- Ron Leir Photo by Cindy Dwyer From l.

First there was the devastating fire at the fertilizer plant in Texas that laid waste to much of the host town West and the puzzlement over what if anything to do about it. Then there was the globally alarming development reported in last Saturday s New York Times about the record level of carbon dioxide the world is producing through the burning of fossil fuels. Both issues should raise concerns over what Americans stand for and how America can try to use its geopolitical power to effect positive out- Hold government s feet to the fire A comes for our planet. In the aftermath of the tragic fire April 17 at the West Fertilizer Co. plant that killed 14 mostly emergency first responders and injured some 200 both Lone Star State Gov. Rick Perry and West Mayor Tommy Muska weren t pushing for more aggressive regulation of fire codes for these facilities of which there are said to be several hundred in the state according to reporting by The Times on May 10. Texas even outlaws rural counties from implementing fire safety codes. Its largest city Houston the Times noted doesn t even have zoning laws. Maybe when you have a state with such wide open spaces you figure you don t need restrictions telling folks how they can live. Texas being a super business-friendly place I guess it makes sense that its officials would ease off pressuring factory owners to put in expensive fire sprinkler systems and provide other safety precautions. Couldn t Lyndon Johnson have used the same persuasive techniques he was famously associated with in the White House to push through his Great Society legislation to corral Lone Star lawmakers to afford their citizens more protection Maybe it s all about the votes and the money. That s states rights for you. But official government neglect extends to the national sphere too. As the Times reported on May 11 two agencies that monitor carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego announced that the gas had reached an average daily level of about 400 parts per million. That s a level that scientists say the earth hasn t seen in perhaps 3 million years when the planet was a lot hotter. The time isn t far those same experts fear when the ice caps will continue to melt at such a pace that the oceans and waterways will flood cities all along the coast. All because countries around the globe including the U.S. aren t doing enough to push the development of alternate technologies like the electric car to significant reduce the volume of that heat-trapping gas. Yes some nations have subscribed to international treaties pledging to get that done but where is the U.S. around this goal Why isn t our President sounding the alarm with more alactrity Why isn t the United Nations reacting Do we just keep putting this issue off like Congress has done with sequestering We can t afford to wait until we re carried off to oblivion. Act now and don t leave this terrible legacy for the next generation.

The other team members are juniors Zohaeb Atiq and A.J. Fernandez both 17 and seniors Andrew Allison 18 and Nick Sherer 17. For the upcoming competition which will be held in the Olympic Pool in the Natatorium on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis students from more than 100 high school and middle school teams from around the nation will be expected to maneuver their ROVs through two trials. First they ll guide the robots through an underwater obstacle course through hoops oriented in different directions next they ll direct the robots again underwater to a rack set up with rings which the robots must remove and place in baskets set at different levels all of which must be done within a fixed time limit. The bigger picture here Williams said is I want eventually all our science classes moving this way maybe incorporating some type of problem-solving learning activity [because] learning comes from feedback when you fail. Williams said he s hoping to get more faculty to buy in to this concept of more experimentation. Asked if more students were buying in to the sciences as a post-graduate option Williams said that the school doesn t follow up on every student once they ve completed their academic obligations but he added Of the top 10% of our graduating class there seems to be a growing number pursuing careers in math and science.

In addition to misrepresenting their cause the pair misrepresented themselves authorities charged. Elie Honig director of the N.J. Division of Criminal Justice said We allege that these defendants told a barrage of lies to further their scheme with Niemczyk claiming he was a Navy SEAL who served three tours of duty in Vietnam and both men telling donors they were fatherand-son firefighters who were working at a firehouse near the World Trade Center on 9 11. Honig described their conduct as outrageous. According to investigators Niemczyk bought a Ford F-150 pickup truck in June 2010 and had it custom-painted with 9 11 themes including the World Trade Center towers police and fire department logos and the names of the first responders who perished in New York on 9 11. Niemczyk and Scalgione reputedly worked as partners to bring the truck to 9 11 events both inside and outside New Jersey selling shirts and collecting donations. Scalgione is said to have acted as the public relations person making arrangements for their participation at 9 11 events. According to the indictment the defendants purchased hundreds of T-shirts printed with 9 11 themes similar to those painted on the truck. They reportedly paid vendors between 3 and 6.90 per shirt and then sold them from the truck for 20 apiece at various 9 11 events where they would also put out a jug to collect cash donations authorities said. At times the defendants are said to have represented that they ran an established charity or were affiliated with a registered 9 11 one. The men were not registered with the State of New Jersey as a charitable organization as required by law authorities said. According to the indictment no proceeds went to 9 11 families or charities. Instead proceeds in excess of 50 000 were allegedly deposited into Niemczyk s personal bank accounts. A second count of theft by deception relates to the defendants reportedly obtaining discounts from two T-shirt vendors by falsely representing where the proceeds from their sale would go. One vendor gave discounts of 3 312 the other discounts totaling 1 378 it is alleged. In addition to the charges of conspiracy and theft by deception Niemczyk is also charged with failure to file a personal state income tax return in 2011. While Niemczyk receives tax-exempt Social Security benefits he collected thousands of dollars in proceeds at 9 11 events in 2011 and he won 55 000 at the Borgata casino in Atlantic City on Sept. 6 2011 which he was required to report authorities said. In November the state Division of Consumer Affairs secured a final consent judgment in a civil action against the defendants under which they must pay more than 200 000 representing disgorgement of donations and payment of civil penalties attorneys fees and investigative costs. The judgment also bars Niemczyck and Scalgione from ever working for any charitable organization in New Jersey. The May 3 indictment was handed up to Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson in Mercer County who assigned the case to Ocean County where the defendants were to appear for arraignment.

(And maybe some of you gentlemen too). Many of us are suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. You know the symptoms the compulsion to wear elbow-length white gloves drinking far too much tea dressing for dinner even if you ve ordered takeout and constantly searching eBay for pickle fork auctions. (Personally if I don t get a Mr. Bates fix THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 15 2013 09 In Lyndhurst we were to the manor borne A soon I shall suffer an attack of the vapors.) Watching repeats helps a bit but we know there s a long long trail a-winding until Season 4 starts next year. For that reason I took the motorcar on a jaunt to the Lyndhurst Public Library on Valley Brook Ave. last Saturday forenoon for a special presentation Life at an Edwardian Manor -- Inspired by Downton Abbey . The speaker was Judith Krall-Russo of Fords. KrallRusso is a food historian but she has also done massive research into the manners and mores of the Edwardian era which technically spanned the reign of Edward VII (1901-1910) but is more generally expanded to define the period from the 1880s to the end of World War I. And perhaps a bit beyond. As Downton fans know the Crawley family at the center of the saga has already entered the postWWI period and massive changes are in the air. But within the walls of the manor house customs and attitudes (and the relationship between upstairs and downstairs) evolve at a more glacial pace. Krall-Russo s informative and intriguing program helped fill in some of the cultural-knowledge gaps of the series American audience ranging from broad economic issues to such tidbits as why Lady Sybil s appearance in harem pants cause such a stir. (What she was wearing was called a tango dress and the tango introduced to England around 1911 was downright scandalous. Until then thanks to the omnipresent gloves when men and women danced they never touched flesh-to-flesh that would have been considered totally evil. ) Not that there wasn t such touching going on off the dance floor. Arranged marriages could be especially unhappy and there were scores of American heiresses ( new money not accepted into U.S. high society) shipped off to Britain simply to marry a lord and gain a title -- and save the husband s formerly wealthy family from bankruptcy. This could lead to significant hanky-panky among the upper classes. Krall-Russo gave her listeners a succinct lesson in economics which play a critical role in the Crawley drama. Downton is in dire financial straits but it still looks pretty spiffy. ( This is a show not a documentary Krall-Russo reminded us more than once.) In fact many of the British manor houses of the time lacked electricity and indoor plumbing and had deteriorated into fairly shabby conditions. (Not what those imported heiresses had expected at all.) A primary cause -- this is how the world economy works children -- was the American Civil War after which U.S. industry research science and technology took off. On this side of the pond it was also the era of huge ranches and farms. England began buying its corn wheat and meat etc. from us and the English laboring class who had worked the manor house fields for centuries began leaving the land to do other things. The aristocrats were losing their fortunes as land values plummeted. This is also why the aristocrats were eager to wed rich American brides since a bride and her money became the husband s property. The idle rich Krall-Russo explained were exactly that. Idle. Completely except for socializing. They did nothing she said. Aristocrats were unemployed and they were proud to be unemployed. Oh the men might go fishing or shooting or fox hunting on occasion but there was no concept of work for them. If they were out shooting they didn t even load their own guns. The loader did that handed the weapon to the gentleman who pegged a shot at a bird handed the gun back to the loader and was given a freshly loaded one. As for aristocratic Edwardian women their primary occupation was to change clothes. Five times a day. The clothes were put on them by their maids as were their jewels their shoes etc. A servant even put the toothpaste on their toothbrushes.

Except in France where upper-class women wore makeup but prostitutes did not. (Must have been confusing for Englishmen visiting Paris.) Makeup -- rice powder pearl powder and rouge -started becoming acceptable for proper Englishwomen in the 1900s. The dark brunette hair of Cora and Lady Mary was not the preferred color. And blonde hair was considered unfortunate. Light brown hair was the ideal. Until age 18 girls could wear their hair down. But once they came out in society the hair went up and it never came down in public again. An unmarried woman would never be left alone in a room with a man. Ever. A woman never left the house without a hat or bonnet. Ever.

As for the lower-class the servants or slavies KrallRusso noted In Downton Abbey they re too clean. They would not have bathed regularly. And they would have slept in attics on leftover sheets and torn blankets. Aside from all the housecleaning and fireplace-feeding and silver-polishing and kitchen work their chores would have included ironing the newspapers so ink would not come off on the master s hands and washing all coins because the coins had been touched by commoners. And nothing not a letter not a calling card would ever be handed directly to a family member it would always be presented on a small tray. If you as a servant passed a family member in a hallway you would look down or at the wall. Because said KrallRusso you were not there. The servants got a half-day per week and one full day per month off -- family social engagements permitting. They awoke at 5 30 a.m. and did not go to bed until all the work was done. Or in a lady s maid s case until the lady returned from her evening out. Which could be 2 a.m. or later. Sometimes the servants got no sleep at all. At one shooting party Krall-Russo said 4 000 birds were reportedly shot in one day. Who plucked and cleaned them Not the gentleman shooters. All of the above is just part of the information we gleaned in the hourlong presentation. The library had noted that you didn t have to be a Downton Abbey fan to enjoy the program but devoted fans may take more notice of certain details in the show after attending. This one certainly will. On Sunday night I already started applying my new knowledge while watching another PBS program Mr. Selfridge. For the first time I was noticing the hats on the men in the street and rating the wearer s social standing. The more you know the more interesting even the simple things become. 28 499 buy for buy for New sessions added for CPR AED training Nutley Parks & Recreation Department 44 Park Ave. is offering residents Heartsaver CPR & AED training on June 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. in Room 201.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 15 2013 11 News from the Kearny Police blotter A call about a theft in progress in an industrial area of Kearny the morning of Saturday May 4 led to the arrest of two local men on both burglary and drug charges Kearny police reported. At 8 10 a.m. Officers Tom Bannon and Vanessa Sevillano responded to a report of individuals apparently stealing scrap metal on Sellers St. off the Belleville Pike.

Two events -- both free and open to the public -- will commemorate the anniversary. First there will be a 4 p.m. ceremony at the Nutley Parks Department building 44 Park Ave. which is near the site where the velodrome once stood. Township commissioners along with members of the Historical Society s executive board will dedicate a monument and Parks Recreation Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci will read a resolution. At 7 p.m. the Historical Society will host a program at the Nutley Museum 65 Church St. featuring author and historian Michael Gabriele. Two years ago Gabriele wrote The Golden Age of Bicycle Racing in New Jersey published by The History Press which chronicles the 130-year history of cycling in the Garden State. The program will include a presentation by Gabriele along with a display of photos programs and cycling memorabilia. A limited number of Gabriele s books will be available for sale. In connection with the anniversary the Nutley Public Library starting June 1 will feature a monthlong display of photos velodrome programs and cycling memorabilia in its main lobby at 93 Booth Drive. The Nutley Velodrome opened Sunday June 4 1933 to a capacity crowd of 12 000. Joseph Miele an entrepreneur and sportsman from East Orange led the effort to build the track. A field of top international cycling stars -- Gerard Debaets of Belgium Alfred Letourner of France Franz Deulberg of Germany Giovanni Manera of Italy Charlie Jaeger and Tino Reboli of Newark Paul Croley of Brooklyn Norman Hill of California and Australians Cecil Walker and Reggie McNamara -- were featured in opening-day racing events. New Jersey is acknowledged as the cradle of cycling for the United States and the Nutley Velodrome is an important part of the legacy. From the 1890s to 1940 New Jersey was the epicenter for the international professional cycling circuit. Though the era is long forgotten professional cycling was a major spectator sport in New Jersey in the early years of the 20th Century. The Nutley track -- a one-seventh of a mile wooden saucer -- was built three years after the Newark Velodrome closed. In addition to cycling events the Nutley Velodrome also hosted several boxing matches and midget-car races. The velodrome was located on the north side of Park Ave. near River Road. The site today is occupied by the Nutley Parks and Recreation Building and Father Glotzbach Memorial Park. Due to a variety of economic and social factors the sport of professional track cycling began a steep decline in the late 1920s. Though initially it was successful the Nutley Velodrome eventually suffered from this downward trend which was manifested in a dramatic drop in fan attendance. 15 1940 it marked the end of the golden age of professional bicycle racing in the U.S. Two years later the track was demolished. In subsequent years Nutley commissioners acquired the velodrome property and developed a public park and a Little League baseball field for the township s Avondale neighborhood.

I think John Gascione was the winning pitcher for the first one back then but I have no idea who it was against Servideo said. As a matter of fact I remember my baseball coach at Lyndhurst was a guy named Frank Ruggiero who was a big Marine type of a man and coach. I remember him having 249 wins as a coach and thinking that it must have taken forever to get to that total and I would never get there. Last Saturday night Servideo got to his coach s win total times two. When the Golden Bears defeated Bogota 3-0 as part of the program s annual special Mothers Day Game it gave Servideo his 500th career coaching win a milestone reached by only a handful of coaches throughout New Jersey and in Bergen County. I think it was a flashback to see how fast the time went by Servideo said. I ve been coaching 28 years and you think how long of a time that is. It feels like just a few years. I guess if you stick around long enough you can get that number. Servideo knew that legendary Bergen County high school coaches like Ramsey s John Ponchak Paramus Joe Cervino Emerson Borough s Bob Carcich and Frank Salvano of St. Joseph of Montvale had all reached the 500-win plateau so he was pleased to be in such great company. The win Saturday was the 18th straight for the Golden Bears breaking the longest win streak in a single season. Both th Kearny pitcher MacConchie better after getting hit with line drive There s no question that the Kearny High School baseball team is better than the 5-17 record the Kardinals currently own. Out of our 17 losses I d say four of them we had no part of being in those games Kearny head coach Frank Bifulco said. The rest were all one bad inning here and there. It just seems like when everything could go wrong it does. I asked the other coaches the other day about when the dark cloud passes us. However wins and losses took a back seat last Friday afternoon when the Kardinals were facing Hudson Catholic in the opening round of the Ed Ford Memorial Hudson County Baseball Tournament. In a fleeting moment all that mattered was the health and well being of senior pitcher Kyle MacConchie. The Kardinals were in another close game unfortunately on the short end once again when MacConchie pitching a solid game experienced one of the more frightening scenarios in all of high school sports. Soon after delivering a pitch MacConchie was struck in the head with a line drive off the bat of a Hudson Catholic player. It was the scariest thing I d ever witnessed in all my years of baseball Bifulco said. He got hit with the line drive square in the side of his head and didn t even have a chance to put the glove up. MacConchie went right down to the turf at Lincoln Park in Jersey City and lay there motionless. We were out on the field before the play even stopped Bifulco said. Coaches from both teams ran right out there. Within 30 minutes MacConchie was being examined by specialists in the Jersey City Medical Center Trauma Center. We were playing a great game that had turned into a close dogfight and then Kyle gets hit with the ball Bifulco said. It was very scary. Fortunately for MacConchie he is going to be fine. He got released from the hospital later that night about 10 p.m. or so Bifulco said. The CAT scan came back fine.

For the last quarter century Lyndhurst has played Bogota on the Saturday night before Mothers Day. We bring the mothers out and give them corsages Servideo said. They wear their son s jersey. It s a special night a great night. My mother was big on it. Servideo s mother passed away four years ago. It s always a big night for our seniors Servideo said. I always let the seniors start in that game. So Servideo gave the ball to little-used senior Nick Galvez who earned his first start. I didn t know how long we were going to go with Nick and the kid went the distance throwing a two-hitter Servideo said. So I ll always remember the answer to that trivia question that Nick Galvez was the winning pitcher in the 500th win. Servideo said that he was happy to share the milestone with his three assistant coaches Anthony Rizzo Jeff Radigan and Pat Auteri all three of whom once played for Servideo at Lyndhurst. All three could be head coaches but they choose to stay with us Servideo said. The only reason why we re good is because they help to mold young men into baseball players every year. see SERVIDEO page 19 18 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY mAY 15 2013 friends.

Once their cloudy natural lenses are replaced with clear manmade intraocular lenses (IOLs) most cataract patients are astonished at the clarity of their vision and their renewed ability to discern color. In fact some patients have even told of repainting the walls of their homes after seeing what color their old paint really was. With all this in mind those diagnosed with cataracts should know that the timing of this elective procedure is totally in their hands. No one says that they have to wait until they are nearly blind. In most cases earlier intervention is far preferable and even life-altering. Once removed cataracts will not grow back. We recommend frequent eye examinations and tests which are critical for monitoring your eyes for any changes and may help prevent unnecessary vision loss. If you have questions regarding cataracts or any other eye health concerns please call us. We re located at 20 Park Avenue Lyndhurst where our experienced staff and fully equipped office can determine your needs and perform the required procedures.

How can he be helped Sad to say but many people are afraid or anxious about going to the dentist and it is a very real problem. Over the years I have found that a person s fear stems from a childhood trauma involving a dentist and that is hard to overcome. So while maybe 10% have a traumatic experience another 20% have basic dental anxiety. While many people express fear of needles or of being hurt most dental anxiety is due to the lack of control people feel while sitting in a dental chair. In order to feel more in control you should take charge and tell your dentist right away about your fears and what will make you comfortable. Your dentist can help calm your fears by talking with you and explaining the procedure before any work starts give you a signal to use if you feel any discomfort so that he can stop immediately and find out why give you time to take a break . All of these help give the fearful patient a sense of control and calm while in the dentist s office. If these steps do not calm you enough I would then give you the option of laughing gas or a pill sedative which will help calm you completely. My advice is to be proactive talk to the staff and dentist and remember if you feel uncomfortable you can leave. I have told some of my patients this and I have yet to have one get out of my chair. It is all about liking and feeling comfortable with your dentist. Take control by asking questions and expressing what you need to be fearless. Remember we cannot help if we do not know your anxiety level or your fears. Don t worry be pro-active Prakash J.

His 200 (meter) time was right around his personal record and his high jump was a little off Shoebridge said. But since all four were the same day it was a great performance. Shoebridge knew that Wenger would be an asset to his program. I could see the kid work hard in the weight room and watched him train and you could see he was an athlete Shoebridge said. I m not surprised at all that he did so well. Shoebridge is also looking for more of the same from Wenger at the Bergen County Championships and the NJSIAA state sectionals. If he gets four medals the next two weekends I wouldn t be surprised Shoebridge said. I m so happy for the kid. He s the greatest kid to work with. All the other kids love him. I m ecstatic he s been so successful. It s like you gave the kid a million dollars. Wenger enjoys the camaraderie he has with Shoebridge. I m always trying my best and hoping he sees that Wenger said. Knowing that he thinks I m just reaching my potential means a lot to me. I just hopefully can continue to keep getting better. Wenger is hoping that the success continues through the next two weekends of championship meets. I m just going to keep training and keep working hard Wenger said. I m going to keep working on my 100 (meter) times and my triple jump as much as I can. I would defi- nitely say that the 200 (meter) is the toughest for me because it s just an all-out sprint. Needless to say Wenger is happy that he was able to compete in track over volleyball. I ll take this over volleyball any day Wenger said. I m pretty happy with this. Collecting four medals in a single day can do that for any track athlete. Pascrell opens Lyndhurst o fice LYNDHURST Continuing in his efforts to bring high quality service to the communities he represents in Congress U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-NJ09) recently opened a new South Bergen Satellite Office in Lyndhurst. The office located in Town Hall will be staffed part time by a caseworker from Pascrell s office and will assist constituents with inquiries about federal agencies and programs including Medicare Social Security Veterans Affairs and immigration issues. One of my top priorities in Congress has and will continue to be addressing the individual needs of the people I proudly represent said Pascrell. From veterans accessing their benefits to individuals seeking lost Social Security checks to seniors having someone to help answer questions about their Medicare benefits cutting through the bureaucratic red tape can be a daunting task at times. I thank Mayor (Robert) Giangeruso and the town commissioners for helping provide this opportunity to assist individuals with their federal representation. I have spent my entire public career as a mayor as a state legislator and now in Congress listening to individuals about how government can work better for them. Residents in Lyndhurst and neighboring communities in Bergen and Hudson Counties will soon have a resource nearby to assist them with any concern from help dealing with a federal agency to a Capitol tour request. Pascrell currently has a satellite office in Passaic to serve residents of Passaic County and expects to open another satellite office in Englewood City Hall in the coming weeks. Lyndhurst Mayor Bob Giangeruso joined Pascrell for the grand opening and acknowledged the benefit of the new office to the community. Having a congressional satellite office in our community will not only benefit residents of Lyndhurst but all the communities of southern Bergen County and Hudson County in the 9th Congressional District said Giangeruso. I d like to welcome Congressman Pascrell to our community and I look forward to working with him and his staff as he addresses the needs of our residents. The South Bergen Satellite Office will have regular office hours on Wednesdays and Fridays. The Congressman s satellite offices are in addition to his main district office in the Robert A. Roe Federal Building in the City of Paterson which is open on a fulltime basis. 22 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY mAY 15 2013 Harrison Lions share the pride The month of April was a busy month if you were a member of the Harrison Lions Club.

Mayor Ray McDonough and members of the Harrison Town Council kindly circled back after the parade to rejoin the Lions for the tree planting ceremony at the Library Park. Immediately following the tree planting the many volunteers and students in attendance were organized into groups to conduct a town wide cleanup that collected nearly 10 cubic yards of debris. The HLC has been serving the community since its inception in 1951. They volunteer to help the vis ually impaired also reach out to those Harrison residents who are in need of help.

Just as summer brings its beauty shouldn t a home bring forth its beauty Yes especially if you are considering selling your home this year. From my experience as real estate professional I have found that a well-polished house appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and for a higher price in today s real estate market. Buyers feel more comfortable purchasing a well-cared for home because if what they can see is maintained what they can t see has probably also been properly maintained by the homeowner as well. Consider the following in readying your house for sale this year consider How much should you spend on the exterior and curb appeal and in preparing the interior How much should you spend In preparing your home for a market sale It s really in the spending factor. Spend as little money as possible. Buyers will often be impressed by a brand new roof but they aren t likely to give you enough extra money for your investment. There is a big difference between making a minor inexpensive polishing and what is called touch-ups. For example painting your house or putting new knobs on cabinets and doing extensive and costly renovations like installing a new kitchen would be considerations for how much should actually be invested to sell your home. Paulo Pinto broker owner of Campion Realty LLC is familiar with buyers expectations in your neighborhood and can advise you specifically on what improvements need to be made so don t hesitate to ask for more information. Maximizing exterior and your curb appeal Before putting your house on the market take as much time is necessary (and as little money as possible) to enhance your exterior and interior appeal. Here are some tips that will help enhance your home s exterior and curb appeal Keep the lawn edged cut and watered regularly. Trim hedges weed lawns and flowerbeds and prune trees regularly. Check the foundation steps walkways walls and patios for cracks and crumbling. Inspect doors and windows for peeling paint. Clean and align gutters. Inspect and clean your chimney. Repair and replace loose or damaged roof shingles. Repair and repaint loose siding and caulking. In northern winters keep walks neatly cleared of snow and ice. During spring and summer months consider adding a few showy annuals perhaps in pots near your front entrance. Re-seal an asphalt driveway. Keep your garage door closed. Store RVs or old and beaten up cars elsewhere while the house is on the market. Apply a fresh coat of paint to the front door. Maximizing interior appeal Enhance your home s interior by Giving every room in the house a thorough cleaning as well as removing all clutter. This alone will make your house appear bigger and brighter. Consider hiring a professional cleaning company. Remove the less frequently used even daily used items from kitchen counters closets and attics make these areas less cluttered. Since you re anticipating a move anyhow holding a garage sale at this point is a great idea especially in the summer months approaching. Replace broken or cracked windowpanes moldings and other woodwork. Inspect and repair the plumbing heating cooling and alarm systems. Repair dripping faucets and showerheads. Buy showy new towels for the bathroom to be brought out only when prospective buyers are on the way. Spruce up a kitchen in need of more major remodeling by investing in new cabinet knobs new curtains or a coat of neutral paint. The summer is considered the most productive months for real estate sales and purchases. Having a realtor like Paulo Pinto broker owner of Champion Realty LLC who has served the Kearny North Arlington and the surrounding areas for more than nine years makes the difference in your home selling or purchasing endeavors.
