May 22 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXV No. 53 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Hunt is on for serial bandits By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY In early February two bandits held up a Kearny delicatessen at gunpoint tied up the clerk and two customers with zip ties and escaped with approximately 5 000 in cash. Within days of that heist KPD investigating officers Sgt. Charles Smith and Det. Ray Lopes noting similarities in the robbers descriptions and MO had linked the crime to at least three others -- in Belleville Bloomfield and Newark. Further investigation by local and state police has now led authorities to suspect the bandits are responsible for 11 hold-ups in multiple municipalities since Feb. 1. The case is now in the hands of the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force which became the lead agency in the investigation last week. In addition the Essex County Sheriff s Office has announced that the Crime Stoppers program would pay up to 5 000 for information leading to the culprits arrests. According to police the crime spree apparently began Feb. 1 with two robberies one at a convenience store in Linden the second at a Newark gas station.

Last Tuesday night May 14 Kearny s governing body voted to cut back its mutual aid response to Harrison by sending only two fire companies to assist the Harrison Fire Department one less than Kearny has been providing since a backdraft at a March 10 fire on Frank E. Rodgers Blvd. North injured five Jersey City firefighters who were assisting. Kearny officials will reassess its position on June 30 and could further reduce its response level if Harrison s fire staffing levels reflect no change. And it s possible that Kearny may next look to pull the plug on providing ambulance services to Harrison. Asked for reaction Harrison Fire Director Harold Stahl said Kearny has to do what Kearny has to do. We ll take a look at it when it happens. I have to take the situation as it s presented to me and overcome somehow. Kearny Mayor Alberto Santos a vocal proponent of the new policy said the circumstances of the March 10 fire persuaded local officials that see MUTUAL AID page 201-991-1300 KEARNY OFFICE 213 Kearny Ave Kearny New Jersey C21Semiaokearny Century21.com 13 201-460-8000 LYNDHURST OFFICE 761 Ridge Road Lyndhurst New Jersey Get CENTURY 21 Real Estate Mobile App. Visit http 87778.mobi c21 21 Semiao & Associates www.Century21Semiao.com C21Semiao Century21.com TO SEE OUR AD THIS WEEK PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 24 02 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 22 2013 Giangeruso team wins by 3-1 margin West Hudson Publishing Company s Fastest Growing Free Weekly Newspaper Established 1887 Family Owned & Operated Mary Tortoreti President Robert Pezzolla General Manager Photos by Ron Leir LEFT Winners of the Lyndhurst municipal election recite Pledge of Allegiance at victory headquarters.

From about 2007 until 2012 Arcentales reputedly engaged in the conspiracy through a Woodbridge-based company called Premier Mortgage Services (PMS). Arcentales a loan officer at PMS allegedly provided fraudulent documents to financial institutions in connection with mortgage applications on behalf of straw buyers Fishman s office said. As described in the indictment such buyers were individuals who were recruited by accused co-conspirators and who reportedly were known to have no means of paying the mortgages and no intention of residing at the properties in question. The conspirators allegedly used false bank statements and other documents to make it appear as though the straw buyers possessed far more assets and earned far more income than they actually did the indictment reads. Relying upon those false documents financial institutions funded mortgage loans. According to the indictment Arcentales then profited illegally by receiving a commission from PMS for each mortgage loan that she closed and also by diverting portions of the fraudulentlyobtained mortgage proceeds for herself. The accused co-conspirators all previously charged by complaint include a partowner of PMS who allegedly arranged for the creation of fraudulent documents a paralegal who reportedly served as the settlement agent on mortgage loans brokered by Arcentales and the owner manager of a construction company that built properties sold to straw buyers authorities said. Each of the five counts against Arcentales is punishable by a maximum potential penalty of 30 years in prison and a fine of 1 million. Fishman credited special agents of the FBI and of IRS-Criminal Investigation for the investigation leading to the indictment and also thanked the Social Security Administration-Office of Inspector General for its participation in the probe. -- Karen Zautyk Lyndhurst woman was indicted last week for her alleged role in what U.S. Attorney Paul J.

During his attempts to locate the cash he believed to be there Grochulski struggled with [the dealer s] father and shot him dead at point-blank range -- with a shotgun. They fled and drove off with their female companion in Grochulski s car. On Oct. 25 1975 a group of five -- not including Grochulski -- returned to the dealer s apartment to attempt the robbery a second time struggled with the dealer wounded him and fled. The NYPD eventually located all the participants in both crimes and a witness identified Grochulski s car as the one seen fleeing the Oct. 20 murder scene. Grochulski was identified in police lineups as the killer by eyewitnesses to the murder. He was tried in state Supreme Court in Manhattan and convicted on Feb. 10 1977. Since Grochulski has now been arrested in Kearny one might assume that would be a parole violation requiring his reincarceration. This is not the case. Law enforcement authorities told The Observer that his parole was not automatically revoked but he has been put under intensive supervision. Revocation of parole is contingent on Grochulski s being convicted in the Kearny case. Currently his term of parole sources said is not scheduled to end until December 2099 when Grochulski would be 154 years old.

On the night of April 3 72 Steven and another boy Donald Caldwell 12 disappeared from the campsite without a trace. In the words of law enforcement never to be seen or heard from again. Nearly 30 years later in 2000 -- and coincidentally in April -- an off-duty N.J. state trooper hiking in the park found a piece of a sneaker and several bones. These were sent to the State Police Forensic Lab but could not be identified. Meanwhile detectives from the Cook County (Ill.) Sheriff s Office have been continuing efforts to ID victims of serial killer John Wayne Gacy who was executed in 1994 for the murders of (at least) 33 young men and boys. His rampage apparently began in 1972. Last October Steven s sister on the off-chance that her Identification put the sample in their database found an apparent match and contacted the N.J. State Police lab and the Burlington County Medical Examiner s Office to confirm the identity. Steven Soden had been found. But exactly what happened to him is still a mystery. As is the fate of young Donald Caldwell. Is Caldwell still alive somewhere or did both boys die Were they the victims of foul play Of an accident or an animal attack Or did they just get lost and die of hunger or exposure Bass River State Forest covers 23 563 acres and it s not likely two boys from urban Paterson had the wilderness skills to survive in that vastness. We don t know if they even had a compass. And early-April weather can It sounds like something from a CSI episode but it s not fiction. And though the story has no (apparent) link to the area The Observer covers you never know. Over the course of 40 years people can move aound a lot. Old memories can resurface. Maybe someone knows something something they didn t even realize was important. In any case the story is a fascinating what-are-the-odds saga and it has brought some amount of closure to a Washington State woman who once lived in a New Jersey orphanage. In April 1972 that woman then a young girl and her 16-year-old brother Steven Soden were among 18 children from a Paterson orphanage who along with four adults were on a weeklong camping trip in Bass River State Forest on the eastern Steven Soden missing brother was among the Gacy victims submitted a DNA sample to the investigators but there was no genetic link found. However the forensics experts at University of North Texas Center for Human be unforgiving if you re not equipped to deal with it. Last week New Jersey authorities announced that the State Police and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children are continuing the investigation in an attempt to locate additional evidence in the 40-year-old cold case. State Police detectives are asking the public s assistance with any information about Donald Caldwell Steve Soden and the Paterson Orphanage group. Anyone with any information is asked to call 1-800-THE-LOST. Yes the odds against solving this are enormous. But so were the odds against finding and matching those bones and identifying Steven.

The first boat cruise is Tuesday June 4 at 5 30 p.m. departing from River Barge Park in Carlstadt and the canoe season begins Saturday June 15 at 8 30 a.m. also at River Barge Park. The Meadowlands Commission s pontoon boat cruises and canoe tours cannot be beat in giving visitors a new and remarkable view of the Meadowlands and an understanding of its natural history said Marcia Karrow NJMC executive director. These trips are truly a wonderful opportunity and judging by the number of return visitors an experience that you ll want to relive again and again. The two-hour pontoon cruises are led by expert NJMC narrators who talk about the Hackensack River estuary s amazing history. Guides also point out wildlife along the way. Expect to see many of the more than 280 bird species such as egrets herons sandpipers peregrine falcons ospreys and even a bald eagle that make the Meadowlands their seasonal or year-round home including 34 on New Jersey s threatened endangered and species of special concern lists. The cruises head south from River Barge Park and pass under historic lift bridges and drawbridges. The excursions also visit the river s marshes where muskrats diamondback terrapins and fiddler crabs may be seen. No two cruises are alike as each takes a slightly different path along the river at different tides. The canoe tours last three hours and focus on the river s marshes taking participants on a journey through a diverse array of vegetation and wildlife. Paddlers will learn the basics of salt marsh ecology and enjoy the magnificent scenery while rowing past wetlands and down creeks. The pontoon boat and canoe trips are for ages 10 and older. Canoes hold up to three people and it is preferred that at least one person has experience in canoeing. Requests for group pontoon boat and canoe trips are welcome. Due to the popularity of these tours early reservations are recommended. Canoe tours are 15 per person and the suggested donation for pontoon boat rides is also 15 per person. All pontoon boat rides depart from River Barge Park. The canoe trips launch from River Barge Park Mill Creek Point Park in Secaucus and Laurel Hill Park also in Secaucus.

State Police enforce seat belt laws yearround they will be out in force on our roads from May 20 through June 2 taking part in the 2013 national Click It or Ticket mobilization and cracking down on motorists who are not belted in. This year 124 of the participating law enforcement agencies have each received 4 000 grants to run seat belt enforcement checkpoints and saturation patrols. Among the recipients are the Harrison and Belleville Police Departments and the Essex County Sheriff s Office. But hundreds of other departments will also be part of the effort. As we kick-off the busy summer driving season it s important that everyone buckles up every time they go out both day and night -- no excuses said Gary Poedubicky acting director of the state Division of Highway Traffic Safety. Officers throughout New Jersey are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing their seat belt he warned. Last year 86% of New Jersey police agencies or 425 of 493 participated in the Click It or Ticket campaign which resulted in 29 307 seat-belt citations being issued. Police officers also wrote 981 child-restraint and 4 951 speeding citations and made 861 DWI arrests during the crackdown. Legislation passed in 2010 made it a secondary offense for adults over the age of 18 to ride unbuckled in the backseat of a motor vehicle. The law allows police to issue a summons and fine of 46 to unrestrained adults in the back seat when the car they are in is pulled over for another violation. The state s primary seat belt law requires all motorists and passengers in the front seat including passengers under the age of 18 to wear a seat belt or be securely buckled in a car seat or face a 46 fine. This ticket is issued to the driver. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 52% of the 21 253 people killed in passengervehicle accidents in 2011 were not wearing their seat belts. The rate increases at night. According to NHTSA 62% of 10 135 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 during the overnight hours of 6 p.m. to 5 59 a.m. were not wearing seat belts. In 2011 seat belts saved an estimated 11 949 lives nationwide NHTSA reported. However far too many motorists are still not buckling up especially at night when the risk of getting in a crash is even greater said Poedubicky. scholarship fund A Day at the Casino fundraiser a trip to Mt. Airy Lodge in Mt. Pocono Pa. is planned for Sunday June 2 by members of the Hudson County Community College (HCCC) West Hudson Scholarship Committee.

How are they going to pay it I feel we re in trouble. Running mate Glover agreed that the decisive majority at the polls gave the Giangeruso team a mandate to pursue its policies. I hope this administration keeps to their word doesn t sell off our water utility fixes our roads does stabilize taxes and keeps all the promises they made so our residents will not suffer. But that is something that Glover finds somewhat incredulous. To them fountains [like the one in Town Hall Park] are more important than families and pools [the community pool at the high school] are important than people he said. Asked if he planned another run for office Guida 82 said No this was it for me. I wouldn t do it again. 02 Roma Ristorante Family Owned & Operated for 40 Years NEW LOOK TUES - WED - THURS Dinner only 20% OFF Parties of 6 or less Not valid holidays Exp. 06 15 13 Can not be combine with any other offer THURSDAYS 7PM While a DJ played rock music and campaigners toasted each other at the victory party uptown at Vivo s Ristorante within hailing distance of the Municipal Building the mood among the remnants of the Guida camp was somber.

After all Walsh had spent most of his time as a coach on the collegiate level with stops at Upsala Montclair State Rutgers-Newark and finally William Paterson. Bob called me and said he needed a coach Walsh said. It was my alma mater. It was the first place I ever coached. I was a volunteer coach at NA. I had a chance to get back in the high school game. It re-energized me. Walsh remained as the Vikings head coach for the last decade until last week when he decided to step down. I had a lot of fun but it s time to move on Walsh said. Our job was to be competitive every year. I think that s what we did. We were in every game and other coaches knew that if they were coming to play North Arlington it was going to be a battle and certainly no walk in the park. Although Walsh said it wasn t the primary reason for his resignation he did admit that recent life-altering events aided in him stepping down. Plain and simple Walsh is battling colon cancer. I went for a colonoscopy on Feb. 18 and on Feb. 25 I was being operated on Walsh said. Doctors removed nine centimeters of Walsh s colon through a labroscopic procedure. Chop and reattach Walsh said. However three spots were also spotted on Walsh s liver. That was the beginning of the battle Walsh said. I missed one game our state playoff game. I was home three days after the surgery. But Walsh has been enduring a regimen of chemotherapy. I m currently in my fourth cycle Walsh said. I have 12 cycles to go through. It s general maintenance stuff. But as I go through this it s going to be really tough at night for me to have enough energy. Doctors have told Walsh that his cancer is very treatable. Unfortunately with my diagnosis I have to see VIEW page Photo courtesy of Ronald Shields The Harrison High School boys volleyball team upset state-ranked St. Peter s Prep before falling to another state-ranked team Bayonne in the Hudson County Tournament finals last Friday night. By Jim Hague Observer Sports Writer When the Harrison High School boys volleyball team reached the semifinals of the Hudson County Tournament last week it would have been a crowning achievement on its own. After all the Blue Tide comes from a Group I enrollment school while most of the competition in the county tourney features much bigger schools. We re not even supposed to be there said Harrison head volleyball coach Nick Landy. We ve been pretty good now for about four or five years but we re a small Group I school. All the others teams are much bigger. So last Thursday Harrison traveled to downtown Jersey 17 City to face St. Peter s Prep a program that has been featured as among the best in New Jersey for the last decade. The Marauders were ranked No. 9 in the state at the time of their semifinal showdown with the Blue Tide. And Landy was confident that his little team could knock off the giant. I m confident with the team we have Landy said. We have a very good offensive team maybe the best we ve ever had. I m always kind of positive. If you don t think you can win then you re in trouble. Landy started to feel better about his team s chances on Wednesday. The day before we had a really good practice maybe our best practice of the year Landy said. That gave us a lit- tle bit of confidence. Landy said that he scouted the Marauders against Kearny and realized that his team had a legitimate chance of pulling off the upset. I realized that they weren t as good as they had been in the past Landy said. I knew that we were playing a really good team but we had nothing to lose. If we played together and stayed away from mistakes then we ll see what was going to happen. However things didn t look good when the Marauders lost the first game of the match 25-13. I thought we were in trouble Landy said. But we ve come back before. Some of it was just survival but we see BlUE TIDE next page 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY MAY 22 2013 BLUE TIDE from 15 started playing better. The Blue Tide rebounded and won the second game 25-15 then stormed back and captured the deciding game by a 25-21 margin. They had shocked the Marauders two games to one to advance to the county tournament final against defending champion Bayonne. It was clearly the biggest win in Harrison volleyball history. It was amazing Landy said. It was brilliant. We spent a lot of energy on winning Thursday. The Blue Tide then had to come back and face Bayonne a day later. I wish we could have bottled what we did Thursday Landy said. Some of what we did Thursday was surreal. I was walking around Friday in a fog after we beat St. Peter s. We beat a powerhouse the No. 9 team in the state. The kids were the same way. Emotionally it was tough to overcome. I wish we had a few days before we played Bayonne. There was a lot of emotion going on. Unfortunately the Blue Tide couldn t overcome the emotional win on Thursday and fell in straight games 25-15 2519 to Bayonne at New Jersey City University Friday night. We suffered a tough loss Landy said. But it was something to build on. I m glad we were there. No one thought we could get there. It showed that the hard work paid off.

He s like a court general and leader out there Landy said. He keeps the team together. He leads the team in service points and is ranked among the top 10 in the state. The key middle hitter is senior Verinder Singh. The 6-foot-5 Singh controls the net every match. He finishes the play hard and usually stops the other team by blocking the ball Landy said. Senior Matt Oliviera is another middle hitter. He s also a good hitter and blocker Landy said. He stepped it up big in the county tournament. Vinny Yoshimoto is the team s setter. The junior Yoshimoto is a bundle of energy. He hustles and is all over the court Landy said. He gets to balls that no one else could. Junior Piero Martinez is another setter. He s a good student of the game Landy said. The libero or defensive specialist is sophomore David Penaherrera. He s a true libero Landy said. He gets to every ball in the back. He knew the sport before he got here and that s a big plus. He makes the future look very good. Freshman Piotr Namiotko stepped in and played a big role right away as a reserve outside hitter. He s above any freshman we ve ever had Landy said. Junior Ramon Madiera came up big in the tourney as an outside hitter. Because he s long and lanky you would think he couldn t hit the ball Landy said. But he has surprising power. He s going to be pretty good. The 16-7 Blue Tide will begin play in the Group II state tournament Thursday when they travel to face Summit. It s been a great season Landy said. Even with the way we played against Bayonne we played well against a great team. Everything else now is gravy and we can build on it. We can use the experience in the county now for the state tourney. For Landy it was a bit of a personal redemption because he learned last week that he will not return as the head boys basketball coach that another coach has been hired. I m throwing everything into volleyball and hopefully I think I ll be around for a while Landy said. But it s been tough really tough with the other. Landy is a dutiful soldier as loyal as they come to Harrison High. He deserves the chance to be coaching a team in the program for many years to come.

They were a hungry group of kids. Walsh said that he will miss coaching at his alma mater. The best part for me was the pre-game planning Walsh said. I liked getting ready for a game. I liked seeing the kids get better. I ll miss all of that. But this is the right time for a new chal- tice for a two-hour shot. I figured that if these kids could do this every day play with that kind of high energy then we re going to win games. I didn t care what happened before. Those kids came to play. Added Walsh And that s what we did all the time. North Arlington kids come to play. The teams I had played hard. They were representing the school and the town as a team. Individually they played hard for themselves. It was that first practice that stood out. I ll never forget that. Walsh doesn t know what comes next. For me it s the right time for a new challenge Walsh said. But I have a lot of other things going on now. First and foremost Walsh s focus is on getting healthy. I don t have a lot of op- tions Walsh said. It has to come first. During his tenure at NA Walsh was known for being a great coach who got his players to overachieve and fear no obstacles. That s the way Dave Walsh has to approach this battle. Fear nothing. Overcome the obstacles. If Walsh can achieve in life what he did as a coach then cancer will be just another opponent on the road of life.

You don t know when you re going to be good. The spokes are never in the wheel at the same time. There s a limited amount of kids in the school to begin with. But Walsh enjoyed building the Vikings program. The year before I got there they won five games Walsh said. I got there and we won 15. We changed the culture of the program. We had kids who were excited lenge.

He definitely could run but it was going to take a little while for him to get into shape. Happel was encouraged by the opportunity to run at Rutgers-Newark. I really wanted to run Happel said. I did the javelin in high school but I wanted to run here. I knew I was at a big disadvantage because I was out of running shape. I just wanted to see if I could keep up with my old standards. Happel started to lose weight in rapid fashion by simply working out with the other members of the Scarlet Raider program. He was down to 210 by the end of the outdoor season and ran a 52 (second time in the 400-meter run) Edney said.

He didn t say who he was going to beat. But he said he was coming after a spot that they better watch out. I wanted to be part of something bigger being part of the A team here Happel said. I didn t want to be in the shadows here. In high school I really didn t make a name for myself. So I made a promise to the team and made a promise to myself that I would make the relay team this year. It made me work harder for this year. So Happel worked with the Scarlet Raider cross country program in the fall. It was the first time I ever ran cross country and I wasn t used to running those distances Happel said. It took a toll on my body but it helped with my stamina. I was then able to focus on speed along with my stamina. There was only one problem in the fall. Happel could not stay healthy. He was always catching a cold Edney said. I would stay on him to take vitamins and dress warmer. But he was constantly getting sick. The illnesses caught up with Happel as the indoor season began. Ever since he came to us he s always been a great worker Edney said. He s a great kid. He s very respectful. He ll do anything I ask of him. I love him to death. Happel has really enjoyed a breakthrough season in the current outdoor campaign. He ran a 50.5 in the 400-meter leg of the mile relay at the Penn Relays and posted a split of 50.8 seconds in the mile relay at the recent New Jersey Athletic Conference championships. The team ran a 3 19 for the mile breaking a school record with Happel running the anchor leg. I still think he can give me a little bit more Edney said. He has one semester left of school. I m trying to have him take the extra semester and run outdoor next year. He s still learning how to run. He s getting better and better each time. If he continues the sky s the limit. Happel has made such an impact on the program that Edney hopes he becomes the program s graduate assistant coach after he graduates. He still doesn t know what he s doing and he hasn t reached his full potential Edney said. But you tell him something he does it. He works on it and gets better. He loves to work hard. He s been a big addition to our program. Happel said that he was flattered to hear that Edney wants him to become a coach. When he spoke to me about that I was in such astonishment Happel said. I was so happy to hear that because it means that Coach Edney has so much faith in me to help the program. He wants me to get better and if I get better then I can give back to the program. Sure enough the promise that Happel made last year came true as he was set to run the anchor leg this weekend at the ECAC Championships. I made my promise and I lived up to it Happel said. I have loved every minute of being part of this team. I wish I did track earlier in my life because I love the sport and I have a good time. So Happel will return next fall in some capacity. I will see if I can run one more semester and give it my all Happel said. Like he s done since he arrived in Newark. Louis J.

Ignorance can be hazardous in light of the fact that the best way to prevent and treat the disorder is to have regular eye exams. Age-related macular degeneration affects the macula the central part of the retina that enables the eye to see fine detail. It also obscures central vision while leaving peripheral vision intact which can make it difficult to identify faces. Early detection of AMD is critical because there is no cure for the disease but treatment may help to halt its progression. AMD can develop quickly or slowly. The disease usually affects one eye first and then the other.

You ve got to prove to me that it works. I don t understand how you can have a negotiation [to combine Harrison and Kearny Fire Departments] where there is an intent [by the state] to shift much of the cost to us. There are other options that Harrison can pursue the mayor said such as contracting with Newark or Jersey City or regionalizing for additional fire protection services. Kearny meanwhile Santos said has its own difficulties holding the line on diminishing fire resources. We re not where we were a year ago but not the 40% reduction that Harrison has experienced. In fact Santos said the town has asked for and received a new statecertified appointment for firefighter. However the list of 30 names supplied by the state has been whittled down very quickly to four and may go down even further the mayor said either because people were no longer interested or because they didn t meet the eligibility requirements. Residents can likely expect to see some new firefighters by early or late autumn Santos said and there are also plans to hire 15 to 22 part-time civilian fire dispatchers who would work in shifts around the clock he added.

No was was reported hurt in the fire that began at around 4 15 p.m. in the alley separating Gamer s Edge an Inernet games shop at 498 Kearny and Mace Electronics at 500 Kearny.

Firefighters used a saw and axe to open up the roof of Gamer s to vent the building and to expose the fire in the walls.
