That s the expectation of the regulars at the Belleville Senior Center who will within a year or so be welcoming new neighbors residents of the township s first senior citizen residential complex in the last 35 years being built by Mill St. Development Urban Renewal LLC. Gov. Chris Christie joined Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo Jr. Belleville Mayor Ray Kimble and a host of dignitaries and guests for a ceremonial groundbreaking last Wednesday May 29 at the construction site near the intersection of Franklin and Mill Sts. Christie assured residents that government bureaucrats would be making sure this 18 million project happens on time and under budget. This is a great thing for the senior citizens of Belleville the governor continued. We need to provide affordable housing. People shouldn t have to leave a place where you ve lived your lives and raised your children.

I was given neither a name nor a contact number so as intriguing as this sounded (I mean how big must that egg be ) it went on the brain s back burner where it percolated for fully two days before the alleged brain realized Wait a minute. Whales don t hatch. They re mammals. Duh. Fortunately I was then emailed the correct info. It wasn t KHS it was Washington School. And the students had watched QUAILS hatch. The second-graders in teacher Marie Altobelli s class were now nurturing 32 Bobwhite chicks through the Quail in the Classroom project sponsored by the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance and the N.J. Division of Fish Wildlife. It is part of an effort to raise children s awareness of the delicate balance of nature and the need for wildlife conservation.

Fishman reported. The details surrounding the hold-up appear to fit the string of ll heists by a team of bandits reported in The Observer on May 22 however a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney s Office would neither confirm nor deny that the arrestee was in any way linked to those crimes or to any other suspect. The man arrested last week was identified as Bobby Dawson 43 of East Orange charged with one count of committing a Hobbs Act robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. According to the criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Newark On or about the afternoon of April 17 Dawson reportedly wearing a mask and brandishing a firearm entered the Belleville News and Food store at 111 Newark Ave. Dawson allegedly pointed the gun at the store clerk s head and demanded money from the cash registers. The clerk complied and Dawson reportedly fled with 2 000. According to the complaint security video captured the robbery and an image of the suspect removing his mask before leaving the premises. In addition the store s video had footage of a man resembling the suspect apparently conducting a reconnaissance of the shop the day before authorities said. The Hobbs Act robbery charge is punishable by a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison the weapons charge by a maximum life sentence and a mandatory minimum of seven years which must run consecutively to any other prison term. Each count also carries a maximum fine of 250 000 or twice the gross gain or loss. Fishman credited special agents of the FBI with the investigation leading to Dawson s arrest and also thanked the Belleville Kearny Bloomfield Maplewood Newark Paramus and Verona police departments the N.J. State Police and the Essex County Prosecutor s Office for their assistance. The heists reported in the earlier Observer story had occurred in Belleville Kearny Bloomfield Newark Linden Maplewood and West Orange over a period of nearly three months starting in early February authorities said. In May following investigations by local and state police the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force took over the case. 531 Kearny Ave. Kearny N.J. 07032 Phone 201-991-1600 Fax 201-991-8941 www.theobserver.com Display Ads Thursday by 4PM Real Estate Thursday by 12PM Obituaries Monday by 10AM Classifieds Monday by 4PM Deadlines five day weather forecast Wednesday June 5 Thursday June 6 Friday June 7 Saturday June 8 Sunday June 9 Inside Editorial .............................06 Around Town ....................15 Real Estate ........................22 Upcoming Promos 75 72 70 73 78 Partly Cloudy Mostly Cloudy Scattered T-Storms Showers Partly Cloudy Obits ...................................25 Classifieds .........................26 Business Directory ..........31 Father s Day 6-12-13 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 5 2013 03 Body in river ID d as oil-attack suspect By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY hen police and firefighters fished a corpse from the murky waters of the Passaic River off South Kearny last week they put an end to a two-month hunt for a man sought in a vicious assault on his ex-wife. The body recovered in the early hours of Wednesday May 29 was identified Saturday as that of Byron Stokely 47 who had been accused of pouring a mixture of boiling water and hot oil on his former wife Terri Thompson as she slept in her Irvington home on March 28. Stokely allegedly fled the scene in Thompson s car which was later recovered but he had disappeared. Essex County law enforcement had been searching for him ever since. The 32-year-old victim suffered severe burns and was treated in the critical care unit at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston. She is now recovering at home it was reported. W Ward and Pontrella contacted the Newark Fire Department to request that its fireboat which was in the general area assist in a search. The body was eventually located about 30 yards off the Kearny shore it was reported. The Kearny police were assisted by Kearny firefighters in removing the corpse from the river. KPD Det. Sgt. John View had also responded to the scene along with investigators from the offices of the Hudson County Prosecutor and the state Medical Examiner who took over the case. Authorities said it could not be immediately determined how long the body had been in the water. On Saturday night Gene Rubino spokesman for the HCPO confirmed that the body had been identified as Stokely. The preliminary ME finding indicates no signs of trauma but final results are pending further medical studies Rubino told The Observer. At press time no new information was available. Photo courtesy Essex County Prosecutor s Office Byron Stokely The unraveling of the mystery of Stokely s whereabouts began at 11 p.m. May 28 when Kearny Police Officers Frank West and Tom Pontrella on patrol in South Kearny were dispatched to the CSX railyard off Fish House Road. There they were met by a security officer from the Norfolk Southern RR who told them that an alert engineer driving a train through the area had reported seeing a body in the Passaic KPD Police Chief John Dowie told The Observer.

The Kearny incident involved a flim-flam perpetrated on a Schuyler Ave. car dealer allegedly by a Newark woman who purchased a 2007 Grand Cherokee for 25 000. The cashier s check in the full amount that she gave the dealership turned out to be bogus Kearny Police Chief John Dowie reported. Detectives following a paper trail identified the suspect as 21-year-old Jasmine Johnson who is reportedly on the lam with a 20 000 check-fraud warrant hanging over her head authorities said. Shortly after the scam was reported Dowie said the Grand Cherokee was found abandoned in Newark. Kearny Det. John Plaugic searched the recovered vehicle for evidence as to who might have used it and discarded items were swabbed for DNA. Through the national Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) there was a positive match to a 19-year-old Newark resident Isaac Torres Dowie said. A Kearny warrant was issued for his arrest on a charge of receiving stolen property and on May 28 Torres was taken into custody by KPD Officer Frank West at the Essex County Jail where he was being held on charges of firearms possession and drug distribution Dowie reported. His new habitat is the Hudson County Jail the chief added. Other recent reports from the KPD blotter include the following May 24 At noon police received a report that an alert Board of Education employee had information that a 13-year-old student in Lincoln School had secreted marijuana in a deodorant stick. She notified school administration who confronted the boy and confiscated the item which allegedly was found to contain a bag of the drug. Police took possession of the pot and the case was turned over to the KPD Juvenile Aid Bureau for adjudication. May 25 P.O. Tim Castle was on patrol at 10 a.m. when he encountered two individuals loading office furniture into a van behind the currently-unoccupied Sandy-damaged KPD KFD station in South Kearny police said. With Sgt. Paul Bershefski as backup the officers questioned the men and the van driver Len McKiver 47 of Jersey City was reportedly found to have a revoked license and a nonrevoked warrant out of Riverdale. Both McKiver and his passenger Robert Breeden 46 also of Jersey City were charged with criminal trespass attempted theft and possession of burglar tools (bolt-cutters and a pry bar). May 28 At 8 30 p.m. P.O. Frank West responded to the report of a burglary on the 200 block of Schuyler Ave. Police said the occupant had returned home from work to find the door pried open and computers missing. Security-camera footage is being reviewed and Det. John Telle is in charge of the investigation. May 29 P.O. Joe Volcano and Sgt. Paul Bershefski responded to a report of an assault in progress at 11 40 a.m. on the 800 block of Kearny Ave. The female victim said she had been punched in the face and knocked off her bicycle by a man in a passing car police reported. While they were interviewing her a bystander -- Paul McGinnis 43 of Kearny --began acting out in the middle of the avenue interrupting the officers yelling and cursing and being otherwise not very helpful it is alleged. He was charged with disorderly conduct and released on bail at about 3 30 p.m. Only to resurface a few hours later police said. (See next item.) At 11 30 p.m. P.O. Kevin Canaley was dispatched to Stewart Ave. and Elm St. on the report of a burglary in progress at a liquor store. see KPD page INJURED ON THE JOB Workers Compensation Attorney 75 Kip Avenue Rutherford NJ 07070 Phone 201-635-0300 E-mail CoachlawAJC yahoo.com Andrew J.

Attorney at Law 10 Real Estate Presented by Jarlynn Hyde Broker Owner Let s Talk OPEN HOUSES WITH A TWIST In this era of extreme makeover television shows we have all become quite accustomed to seeing homeowners throwing celebratory parties to show off new home renovations. With this trend in mind many real estate agents have embraced the idea of scheduling what have become known as extreme open houses. These theme-based get-togethers are creative events that bring real estate professionals neighbors and potential buyers together to show off homes and their interesting features in particular. For instance if a home is outfitted with a professional-grade kitchen a cooking class can be scheduled to focus attention on its food-preparation and entertaining potential. Or an outdoor barbeque can be held on a beautiful patio. These events are fun and promote interest. If you are trying to sell that house of yours you might need to get a bit extreme when it comes to tempting potential buyers and getting them to remember your home. While curb appeal is important so is a buyer s opinion of your home and the type of person who could live there. Extremes in the housing market call for extreme open houses. Mid-Realty Inc. will make sure your open house stands out from the crowd while possibly enticing home buyers. We are a family owned and operated real estate agency in Kearny that has served our area for 45 years. Together we will sell your home for as much as the market will bear and as quickly as possible.

They were Jennifer O Brian a member of the Army who has served in Afghanistan and Iraq and Mary Biro who completed a tour of duty with the Army in Kuwait. North Arlington Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander Harvey Applegate said that he recommended conferring that honor to the women in recognition of their military service to their country and added that he believed it marked the first time that the borough had selected a woman two in this case to lead the parade. Borough Recreation Director Jimmy Herrmann who along with the local recreation commission organized the annual event estimated that some 2 500 spectators watched the 500 marchers from 30 participating units as they proceeded along the route beginning at Canterbury Ave. and ending about three quarters of a mile down Ridge Rd. at Borough Hall.

Also notable was the first public appearance of the borough s newly acquired ambulance described by borough spokesman Thom Ammirato as all electronic and boasts the latest in medical equipment and radio communications [and] runs on a diesel engine. This vehicle which replaces an eight-year-old model according to Emergency Management Services Chief Tony Mondaro now gives the borough four usable ambulances. Mayor Peter Massa said The men and women of our EMS team and the N.A. Volunteer Emergency Squad do a terrific job responding to people in need of medical attention and the [borough] council and I want to make sure they have the best equipment we can afford to make their job easier. North Arlington bonded 176 000 to purchase the new ambulance and spent an additional 15 000 to outfit it.

According to the dictionary that s con tu ma cious. Adjective. Pronounced kon-tuhMAY-shuhs or kon-too-MAYshuhs. Definition stubbornly disobedient rebellious . Usage in a sentence The judge threatened to charge the contumacious witness with contempt of court. Synonyms balky contrary disobedient defiant froward [froward drat now I have to look up froward] incompliant insubordinate intractable obstreperous ungovernable unruly untoward wayward willful. First known use of contumacious 1583. That s all it says. 1583. Really How do we know Used by whom Where Why In what context Maybe two peasants were sitting around the hearth one evening and one says Forsooth mine oxen hath become contumacious. And his friend says Awesome word dude Did st thou just maketh that up How would st thou spelleth it Spelleth I can t even readeth or writeth. Anyway I d like to know the whole story. Some citaintriguing exception. I had an assignment at Washington School in Kearny the other day and because I can never remember which of the Belgrove Drive schools is I Googled the name and the only references I could find were on a Kearny High School alumni message board that appears to have been inactive since 2006. But there I found What I couldn t figure out was why it was called that. I knew what the definition was Perry continued. but was unable to match it up on a search engine with the name Kearny. It makes better sense now knowing a little more about the relationship between General Kearny and his horse I wonder why the town never acknowledged this bit of historical trivia by putting up a simple street sign. The historical trivia appears to refer to another poster s citing Gen. Philip Kearny s having to deal with a contumacious horse and mule during a Western expedition. But it was only an incidental comment in a book and doesn t appear to have much importance. Certainly not enough to warrant a street name in the Town of Kearny. There must be more to the story. And it may have nothing to do with the general at all. If any Kearny history buff has ever solved the mystery of Contumacious Trail contact me at The Observer. Meanwhile somebody please put up a street sign. Karen Zautyk tion would help. The trouble with research is that it often raises more questions than it answers. These days the word appears to be used primarily in courtrooms and legal documents. With at least one Washington and which is Garfield (I never said I was bright) I needed to check a map. The one shown here. On which I noticed something strange. Look at West Hudson Park. See it A road named Contumacious Trail. several postings by an A.J. Perry with such comments as I . . . was quite surprised to learn that most of us on this Forum probably travelled over its half-mile length multiple times without ever knowing what it was officially called.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 5 2013 07 Borough can t reclaim water utility By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent NORTH ARLINGTON fter spending nearly two and a half years in court and at least 100 000 in legal fees North Arlington has lost its bid to cancel the sale of the borough s water utility to the Passaic Valley Water Commission. Now at the court s direction both sides will meet to negotiate other legal issues arising from the 2004 sale including unpaid permit fees the borough says it s owed by the utility and an ancillary access agreement that clarifies the utility s responsibilities to the borough. Mayor Peter Massa said We ll continue to mediate toward a settlement on handling street openings use of cops on an overtime basis maintenance of hydrants and getting proper permits. Those talks have been delegated to Borough Attorney Doug Bern after that the mayor and Borough Council voted last month to sever former Borough Attorney Randy Pearce from the litigation. As Massa put it We approved a resolution to have [Pearce s] role terminated so the balance of the case could be handled by Bern. The May 9 resolution was approved on party lines the four-member Democratic majority carried it by a 4-2 margin. Massa said that the borough has already provided Pearce s law firm with about 100 000 in compensation for work on the case. In December 2010 nearly six years after it sold the water utility to the PVWC for about 4 million the borough sued the PVWC for alleged breach of contract related to the sale price lack of an ancillary services agreement and failure to properly maintain the system. But in her May 2 ruling Superior Court Judge Margaret Mary McVeigh sitting in Passaic County dismissed the borough s complaint concluding that despite North Arlington s allegation that there were misrepresentations about the purchase price she could find no evidence of fraud by the PVWC. While the borough argued A that it got a bum deal from its negotiations with the PVWC the court said it wasn t obliged to create a better agreement for the parties that they negotiated for themselves. And it could always have walked away the court said. As for North Arlington s argument that it ended up getting stuck with a deal made by then-sitting government without public bidding the court noted that the borough has not come forward with any facts to demonstrate ... that 1) there were other parties interested in purchasing [its] water system or 2) North Arlington missed a better opportunity to sell the water system by relying on the facts at the time of closing. Additionally the court went on to say ... North Arlington has failed to establish ... why it took nearly six years after the contract was executed for North Arlington to challenge PVWC .... While the borough argued that its residents have suffered since the sale by having to pay water rates higher than other municipalities the court noted that At no time since the closing has North Arlington ever filed an application [to reduce the rates] before the PVWC .... After the sale the court noted PVWC employees were in the borough changing meters conducting road maintenance and re-lining water lines even in the absence of an ancillary services agreement. While violations of municipal ordinances were noted [for allegedly failing to get permits for the work] no action [by North Arlington] was taken in 2005 2006 2007 or 2008. Straightening out that shortcoming is what the borough now hopes to achieve through negotiations with the utility instead of spending more money to appeal the court ruling Massa said. The borough has not completely ruled out an appeal but at this time we feel it is more financially prudent to pursue a negotiated settlement with the PVWC that will hopefully yield better service for our community Massa said. The negotiations will touch on fees that the borough says the utility should have been paying it for road opening permits that could reach an estimated low six figures according to Bern. Those permits are required whenever a the utility digs up a street to repair water lines. The talks will also deal with what the borough characterized as close out costs from the last quarter of 2004. The borough says it s owed money the PVWC collected from property owners in the closing months of 2004 while the PVWC contends the borough owes it money for water used by the borough water utility. Both sides are due to meet in mid-July with former Superior Court Judge Daniel Mecca who will serve as a courtappointed arbitrator to try to settle their differences.

So it would appear at least from the posse of ceremonial I shovel-shifters who descended on the edge of a 25-foot-wide by 175-foot long dirt lot at 41 Kearny Ave. under a broiling sun for a photo op last Thursday May 30. When the few spadefuls of dirt had been turned and speeches made it remained for chapter co-directors Tom Bruning and Greg Strid to outline what s ahead now that the former Hudson County TB clinic that has stood empty on the site for many years is just a memory now. The county had essentially deeded over the property for a token 1 on the condition that Habitat a nonprofit ecumenical Christian ministry advocating for decent safe and affordable housing would commit to building such a residence on the site. After lining up financing Photo courtesy Greg Strid Sponsors and supporters of Habit for Humanity s at ceremonial groundbreaking for its first Kearny project at 41 Kearny Ave. for the project eliminating a proposed ground-floor retail space and getting local Planning Board approvals Habitat acting as its own general contractor engaged a construction manager Dave Tillou of Foran & Associates of Pittstown to oversee demolition of the old clinic and to erect the new structure. A Google search yielded scant background on Tillou who while previously working under the company name Design Enterprise was involved with a 1 million construction project at the Hunterdon County Poly-Tech School in Flemington in 2006 and more recently was construction manager at a multi-year project at Franklin Township School in Quakertown through 2011. Although Habitat typically solicits the future occupants of the homes it builds and others to donate their labor Bruning said We have contractors doing the heavy lifting. Volunteers won t be invited onto the site until there are functional stairs in place he said. Volunteers who will be recruited from the Kearny community will be assigned jobs with supervision by professionals that will meet your skill set and comfort level he added. To further explain the process to the public and make applications available Habitat will hold two open houses June 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Kearny Public Library 318 Kearny Ave. and June 22 from 10 a.m. to noon at the First Presbyterian Church of Arlington 663 Kearny Ave. Habitat is starting small in Kearny Plans call for a threestory building with a single two-bedroom ADA-compliant apartment on the first floor a three-bedroom apartment on the second floor and another three-bedroom unit on the top floor. The apartments would be sold as condominiums. Prices have yet to be set but the buyers would get an interest-free mortgage loan payable over 30 years. If the buyer defaults the apartment reverts back to Habitat. With Habitat projects state-wide our default rate has been less than 5% Bruning said. Habitat lends support to buyers by providing classes in financial planning. see HABITAT page BRADY BRADY & REILLY Experience. Expertise. Success. NO FEES UNLESS YOU RECOVER DAMAGES.

Up to now Stewart s fans have been treated to the normal roadside staples of franks sandwich specialties (like kielbasa with pierogies Italian sausage Taylor ham grilled cheese) and a value meal menu with a variety of beverages at reasonable prices.

The idea of serving up the savory sweets came to Decato when a retired chiropractor pal from Staten Island introduced me to it at the end of last summer. Since his business had taken a slight downturn which wasn t helped by Superstorm Sandy doing some of its own damage to inventory I figured it needed a little oomph to get it moving Decato said. Now Decato s hoping to see a payoff in summer trade. The 52-year-old merchant has learned the business from the ground up starting at age 12 washing down tables cleaning the bathroom waiting on customers. Seven years later he had essentially taken over running the operation. The owner says he s put his life blood into making the place a welcome stop for families in the area providing enclosed comfortable outdoor table seating for up to 70 diners and counter seating for an additional 10 individuals. We also provide carhop service he said for those who prefer munching in their vehicles. There s on-site parking available for about 50 cars. While most patrons are from the West Hudson South Bergen area Decato said he s heard of some people coming down from Rockaway [in Morris County] where there s another franchise because they find our food better. Decato said he remains committed to providing the best produce and service available so he can stay local. Originally from Cranford he s made North Arlington his residence since 1980 and he likes the area. He acknowledges that the property could have value for a fast food-type outlet and he s considered renting it out but that would only be as a last resort. I wouldn t know what to do with myself Decato said. I m not married got no hobbies. This place has been my life. It s in my blood.

Arlington man accused of sex crime HACKENSACK A 40-year-old North Arlington man has been arrested in connection with an alleged sex crime it was announced May 30 by the Bergen County Prosecutor s Office. Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said the arrest resulted from an investigation conducted by members of his office s Special Victims Unit led by Chief Steven Cucciniello and the Lyndhurst Police Department under Chief James O Connor. According to Molinelli on May 29 members of the Special Victims Unit and Lyndhurst Police arrested Juan Carlos Collado of Allan Drive after learning that he had allegedly inappropriately touched a 13-year-old female acquaintance. Molinelli said the alleged Prosecutor s Office Special Victims Unit. The investigation and arrest followed. Collado listed as divorced and an employee of a car sales business in Edison was charged with one count of sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child both second degree crimes. Collado was sent to the Bergen County Jail Hackensack after bail was set by Judge George Savino at 50 000 with no 10% cash option and no contact with the victim permitted.

Collado acts took place about a year ago in Lyndhurst when the victim was between ages 11 and 12. Molinelli said the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency was notified of the allegation the week of May 20 and subsequently contacted the Bergen County recalled that several years ago Habitat approached the town with the idea of building affordable housing in Kearny. It was an idea I fully supported and with the cooperation of county and local officials including County Executive Tom DeGise Susan Mearns who heads the County Office of Housing and Community Development Freeholder Al Cifelli and the Kearny Town Council this old unused property that years ago was a TB chest clinic will soon become affordable condominiums for families who will be the owners of those new units. I look forward to working with the families who will eventually live at 41 Kearny Ave. as they contribute their sweat equity to building their new homes. Since the Hudson Chapter was formed in 2004 it has completed two single family homes on Ocean Ave. in Jersey City s Greenville section facilitated by the donation of land from Jersey City private donations volunteer labor and 400 hours of sweat equity from each of the partner families. This summer the Hudson Chapter under the leadership of co-director Greg Strid will implement Habitat Helping Hands undertaking several moderate-scale projects to repair homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

Years later when the present-day Harrison High School was opened in 2007 Villalta s memories of Donnie and the many accolades his friend won for his swimming exploits were rekindled. 01 I asked the Board of Education to name something for Donnie for making the supreme sacrifice he said. And last Thursday May 30 on the heels of Memorial Day weekend that s exactly what the board did. Now there is a plaque bearing a photo of Scott in uniform mounted on the wall of the high school pool lobby. It says the Harrison High School Natatorium is dedicated to Lance Cpl.

Donnie s cousin Lloyd Murdoch of Brick Township explained how Donnie was just gung ho. He couldn t wait to go. His dad Duncan was in the Coast Guard in World War II. And Scott-Mahnken added that s why her brother didn t want to be drafted into the Army. He wanted the Marines because they were a sister service to the Coast Guard. And given his competitive edge in the pool maybe Donnie counted on that skill to come in hand as a Marine. Harrison Board of Education President James Fife who was Donnie s swim coach in 1966 said Donnie s specialty was backstroke but he could swim anything and he held many county records. But Donnie had other interests. His sister remembered he was a Little League AllStar played with the Woodsiders Drum & Bugle Corps and loved anything to do with racing cars. A free spirit Donnie was known for his red hair freckles and contagious laugh the dedication program noted. This is a wonderful event said Donnie s younger brother Russell who still lives in Harrison and he credited Villalta for having worked tirelessly for this and it s great. Another brother Bruce of Fords also attended the ceremony. Attendees were reminded that Harrison had previously renamed Hill St. as ScottMobus Place in memory of Donald Scott and another native son of Harrison Army Pvt. Joseph Patrick Mobus who was killed in Vietnam on Aug. 19 1969. Ed Marshman commander of the Harrison American Legion post remembered serving as a member of the joint VFW Legion honor guard for Scott at the funeral service adding His body was laid out in Town Hall all night and the then-Mayor Frank E.

As Pola Galie operating manager of the Lighthouse Center for Natural Resources Education located in Waretown told us quail were once plentiful in New Jersey but the last count in 2010 indicated there were only about 600 left in the wild in the entire state. In the world of birds 600 is a worrisomely low number a substantially decreased population threatened in the words of the Outdoor Alliance by its devastating loss of habitat.

Thirty-two baby quails chirping and feeding and fluffling their feathers and growing day-by-day can be some motivators. And the Washington School children aren t just bystanders. Their quail companions have become part of their lessons. For example each of Altobelli s students has produced a journal on the project they are learning about the birds habitat and behavior and even the predators that might threaten them. In the class we learned something about that ourselves. Altobelli told us that when quail are in the wild they group together in a covey (one of the students provided that correct term) of 10 to 16 birds sitting in a circle and all facing outward. That way they can see a predator approaching and if one appears they can all fly off in separate directions without crashing into each other. Smart quails. The quail eggs (they are very very small) were delivered to Washington School on March 27 and kept in an incubator set at exactly 99.5 degrees with humidity strictly controlled. If the humidity is too high the eggs go soft if it s too low they get brittle Altobelli explained. In either case they then won t hatch. The first Washington School quail hatched Friday April 19. On that Saturday there were a dozen and a dozen more by Sunday. It was a weekend but Altobelli was at the school. And I haven t had a decent night s sleep since she joked. The custodians were so kind she noted thanking them for allowing her access to care for the newborns. In all 33 Bobwhites were hatched but one sadly died. The children named that one Miracle. All 32 have names now ranging from Franco and Stella to Sundance Jolly Rancher and Hershey Kisses to Beast. They are in two large cages at the back of the classroom but there s also a tiny camera that projects live images onto the smart board at the front so the children can keep an eye on the chicks all day.

The Alliance is also working with N.J. landowners to encourage them to create quail-friendly habitats on 14 their property the better to promote repopulation of the species. Although Quail in the Classroom has been around for several years Washington School is the first and only school in North Jersey to participate and Altobelli thanked both Principal Jon Zimmerman and Kearny Superintendent of Schools Frank Ferraro for their enthusiastic support. Taking care of animals has a profound effect on young children she told us. I wanted to involve my students in a project that would impact their attitudes and understanding of wildlife management and its importance. Altobelli can remember when the quail s distinctive cry was not a rarity in N.J. There s no Bobwhite call anymore she said sadly. But we heard it for admittedly the first time the other afternoon in her classroom. And it was beautiful.

In baseball Harrison advanced to the NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2 Group I semifinals for the first time in a decade. The Blue Tide received some clutch pitching from Tommy Dolaghan down the stretch and the Blue Tide survived an 11-10 slugfest against Dunellen to reach the semifinals. In softball Lyndhurst went all the way to the North Jersey Section 2 Group I championship game before falling to top-seeded Hanover Park in the finals. Coach Elaine Catanese loses pitcher Casey Zdanek and catcher Julie Schneidenbach to graduation from this year s 20-win team but the rest of the team returns next year. In track and field Lyndhurst s Nathan Daquilla finished sixth at the NJISAA s Group I championships in the pole vault earning a trip to the Meet of Champions. In track Queen of Peace fared well in both the boys and girls NonPublic B championships. Kevin Monmohin won four medals winning the 100-meter hurdles finishing second in the 200-meter dash fifth in the 400-meter dash and fourth in the triple jump. That s four medals for the talented Golden Griffin junior. Teammate Michael Akanbi was second in the 110-meter high hurdles. As for the QP girls Natalie Negroni won the 400-meter hurdles and fourth in the 100-meter hurdles. Lia Rodriguez who is developing into one of the best female athletes in the area finished second in the long jump. Rodriguez is also a standout soccer player as a goalkeeper and as a basketball player. The Rozalski sisters Cas and Michelle both earned medals in the pole vault. Cas was second and Michelle was sixth. The QP 4x400-meter relay finished third helping the Golden Griffins finish sixth overall as a team which is quite an accomplishment. But the real achievement of the week belongs to Lyndhurst s Camila Alonso who finished second in the javelin and fourth in the discus at the North 2 Group I championships. Alonso threw the javelin 129 feet and the discus 107 feet to earn the two medals. see VIEW next page Photo by Jim Hague The Lyndhurst baseball team celebrates after winning the NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2 Group II championship last Friday in Lyndhurst. The Golden Bears scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to secure a thrilling 8-7 victory. It was the school s first state sectional title since 2008. By Jim Hague Observer Sports Writer t will go down as one of the most thrilling and improbable victories in Lyndhurst High School baseball history _ especially since there was a state sectional championship involved. Last Friday Lyndhurst was rolling along toward the NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2 Group II championship. The Golden Bears held a 5-1 lead over Garfield going into the final inning. Senior righthanded pitcher Max Hart was in complete command. Things looked extremely promising. Then disaster struck almost too fast to fathom. Garfield scored six times in the top of the seventh inning to take a 7-5 lead. Hart wilted a bit in the 95-degree heat and the Golden Bears had no answer to stop the Garfield onslaught. Max just got tired veteran Lyndhurst head coach Frank Butch Servideo said. It was heartbreaking to watch that. When the Golden Bears came into the dugout to start the bottom of the seventh I Servideo brought his team together. We re not a good team Servideo said. We re a great team. Great teams come back and never give up. The players also believed. We were all very confident second baseman Michael Perry said. We all had faith. I knew it wasn t over Hart said. I wasn t about to let anyone get down. I was as loud as I could be. I definitely had faith we could come back. We all had too much pride to go down like that catcher Austin Meeney said. We saw the lead slip away but we weren t done. So the Bears gave it their all one last time. They heard what their coach had to say and believed in fate. They scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning giving Lyndhurst the unbelievable 8-7 victory and the school s first state sectional title since winning the overall Group I state crown in 2008. Lyndhurst was slated to face Mahwah which captured the North 1 Group II title Friday in the overall Group II semifinals Tuesday at Kean University. A win there would elevate the Golden Bears to the overall Group II state finals in Toms River on Saturday. After giving up the four-run lead so suddenly in the top of the seventh inning the Bears (23-6) wasted little time to mount their winning rally in the home seventh. Bobby DeMarco led off the inning by getting hit by a Chris Castillo pitch and Franky Deleva (who had a double triple and three runs scored) kept the rally going with a double down the right field line putting the tying runs in scoring position with no one out. Up stepped Lyndhurst catcher Meeney who had two doubles and two RBI in his prior at-bats. For some reason Garfield head coach Charlie Rigoliosi went against pure baseball wisdom and intentionally walked Meeney putting Meeney on base as the potential winning run. see CHamPS page 19 18 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 5 2013 VIEW from 17 What makes it noteworthy is that Alonso did not compete in track and field last year as a junior. Of course Alonso is the 1 000-point scorer at Lyndhurst in basketball who had a 46-point game earlier in the year. Alonso was coaxed back into competing in track and field thanks to assistant coach Anthony Immediate who was a fine athlete in the javelin when he was at Lyndhurst. Coach Immediate said that I could do good things Alonso said. He s a very good coach and I knew what he was talking about and what he s doing. I was a little rusty when I came back. Alonso said that she was stuck at 111 feet until Immediate tweaked her approach. For a while I stayed at 111 feet but I kept working at it. I m a little surprised that I was able to do what I do. It s a good feeling to do it. I like track. It s a lot of fun. Lyndhurst girls track and field coach Kim Hykey a great athlete during her time at Lyndhurst and who remains the all-time leader in goals scored in soccer at her school likes the way Alonso developed.

Fellow Academy of General Dentistry Fellow International Congress of Oral Implantology I m so glad she came back out for track Hykey said. She s a great kid and a super athlete but she s an even better kid. We knew in sophomore year what she was capable of. It was so disappointing that she didn t come out. After her great basketball season we didn t push her to come back out. But we did tell her that she had the ability to do something special. Hykey will accompany her athlete to the NJSIAA Meet of Champions this week. Who knows what she would have been able to do if she was on the team last year Hykey said. She s just so coachable. Anthony did such a great job working with her training her and making her so competitive. It s nice to watch her keep getting better. Hykey charted it out to find that Alonso is currently 10th in the state in the javelin. If she throws her personal best at the Meet of Champions who knows what can happen Hykey said. I think she has 140 or 150 in her. Nothing would surprise either coach or athlete at this point. Only outsiders are surprised with her prowess. It feels pretty good Alonso said. I do feel I can do better but this is amazing. Sure is. It s beyond remarkable. I m definitely a better basketball player said Alonso who is still undecided about her future. Maybe I d like to keep throwing the javelin as well. It s a lot of fun. It could become even more fun in the days to come. 18.00 (Reg 220) Louis J.

All of our kids can do it and we all practice it. Mikey just had to put the bat on the ball. When Castillo went into the wind-up Meeney sprinted toward the plate and Perry got down the bunt for the game-winning hit that capped the delirious comeback and madcap final inning. Incredibly the last time the Golden Bears won a state sectional title in 2008 they defeated Whippany Park 1-0 on a suicide squeeze bunt from cleanup hitter Glenn Flora. History repeated itself. The rally made a winner out of Michael Polito who pitched two-thirds of the seventh in relief of starter Hart who went the first six innings surrendering just one unearned run on three hits but was touched up for six runs on four hits in the seventh. Hart was ecstatic after the game. This is the best experience in my life said Hart the sadness of losing the lead in the top of the seventh long gone. I felt like I let everyone down with the way I pitched. I m glad we came back strong and got the win. We stayed focused and never gave up Perry said. We worked really hard to get this. We all believed we could come back. This means the whole world to me Meeney said. Before the season we heard that we weren t that good of a team. People thought that we could never go anywhere. But we stayed together and stayed strong and came away with the win.

It started for us at the end of last season Sorce said. The kids made a commitment last summer to play together (in the Essex County American Legion baseball league). We went to the playoffs in that league and that gave us a start. They also played together in the fall and did well there. In the winter they lifted weights and did workouts together so they were ready for the spring. Sorce knew that he had the makings of something special when the season began in earnest April 1. The kids had worked hard to get ready Sorce said. story continued next page THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 5 2013 21 Once we started rolling and won some games it didn t stop. The Buccaneers won their first 15 games giving Sorce a sense that they were headed for greatness. We really started to play well Sorce said. Then the Buccaneers hit a little bump in the road. They lost to Newark Academy in the opening round of the Greater Newark Tournament. It was a good wakeup call Sorce said. I told the kids that they had a lot to play for and they bounced back and made it all the way to sectional semifinals. That s accomplishing a lot. The Buccaneers will lose Caba to graduation but will expect the return of the team s other three top starting pitchers in Damien Sanchez Steven Basantes and Anthony Rivera. Sanchez and Basantes each won three games Rivera won two. The Walicky brothers Dustin and Dylan will be back as will Anthony Lantigua the smooth fielding first baseman. We also have a good group of freshmen coming in Sorce said. I m excited about what we have moving forward. The Buccaneers won 23 games one short of the school record. We didn t play two games because of rain so we had a chance Sorce said. But it was a great year and I m really happy for the kids. They really worked hard. There were a lot of sad faces after we lost but they should know that they turned things around going from seven wins to 23. They set the example for the younger ones and with many players coming back we set the bar high for next year. www.theobser ver.com Visit our New State of the Art Office Midland Family Dentistry OSHA trainees complete program Members of Bloomfield small businesses were among 17 graduates of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Certification Program sponsored by the Essex County Office of Small Business Development and Affirmative Action. Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo Jr. presented the graduates with certificates from the U.S. Department of Labor during an awards presentation on Thursday May 23. OSHA guidelines can be very complicated but understanding and implementing them in the work place is important for the safety of employees and clients. We are pleased to present workshops to help small businesses succeed said Deborah E. Collins director of the Office of Small Business Development and Affirmative Action. Taking time to attend class and complete coursework and sit for an examination while operating a small business is a big commitment. I commend our participants for their hard work and participation and wish them the best of luck she added. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Training Program was a 30-hour class held in May. It was geared for laborers foremen superintendents and project managers who work with construction companies. Participants learned about the OSHA Act and the functions of OSHA information about the procedures and priorities of an OSHA Compliance Inspection a description of the rights and responsibilities of the employers and employees under the OSHA Act and the tools skills and knowledge to identify control and eliminate hazards in the workplace. Receiving their OSHA certification were Michael Chioco from the Bloomfield Parking Authority. Scott Cullari from Carpi Buildings in Bloomfield. Jose M. Vargas from Onpoint Service Group in Bloomfield. For information or to find out about future programs please call the Office of Small Business Development and Affirmative Action at 973-6212011.

AUTOMOBILES FOR SALE Mystery surrounds discovery of graveside shell casings Rifle shell casings were reported found on the gravestone of the child of a North Arlington police superior officer during the Memorial Holiday weekend police said. The officer involved Sgt. Tony Abilio had sued the North Arlington Police Department and the borough in 2010 claiming they had created a hostile work environment for him and had bypassed him for promotion. In a statement released last Thursday Police Chief Louis Ghione said that a family member of the officer involved reported a suspicious incident at 4 02 p.m. on May 29 in Holy Cross Cemetery North Arlington. The family member reported finding two rifle shell casings placed on the gravestone where the child was buried. There is currently an ongoing investigation to determine how these rifle shell casings may have ended up at that location a statement released by North Arlington P.D. said. If it is determined that these rifle shell casings were placed at that location as a threat to one of our police officers or his family members then every effort from local and county police agencies will be utilized to determine who the [suspect] may be and any [suspect] identified will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. North Arlington Police Capt. John Hearn said last Friday It appears that those casings were blank ceremonial rounds which he said have been known to have been fired in an area of the cemetery where 9 11 victims and marines killed in the line of duty are buried. Hearn said it also appears that the casings found were very weathered older and therefore may have been around for some time. Is it possible someone may have moved [the casings] closer to the headstone We don t know Hearn said. For possible clues Hearn said the Bergen County Prosecutor s Office s Bureau of Criminal Investigation will likely be checking the casings for any traces of fingerprints and the types of rounds involved. Efforts to reach the prosecutor s office last Friday were unsuccessful. Abilio and his wife lost two children to a rare muscular disease. Sometime before the officer s lawsuit was scheduled to go to trial the borough approved a legal settlement but neither side released the terms. Abilio was however promoted to sergeant. Asked about the incident North Arlington Mayor Peter A. Massa said he was briefed about the circumstances by the police chief. It s a very unfortunate situation. Since it s under a police investigation I better let the Police Department handle it. Anyone with information about the cemetery incident is asked to contact the North Arlington Police Department at 201-955-5684.
