Description: June 12, 2013 Edition of The Observer

June 12 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXVI No. 3 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY KPD Teen accosted on way to school By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY Police last week arrested a local man on charges of criminal attempted kidnapping after he allegedly grabbed a 17-year-old student on her way to Kearny High School. The girl managed to escape his clutches and ran to the school where she reported the crime police said. The suspect identified as 44-year-old Holger Chamba of Kearny was being held in the Hudson County Jail on 150 000 bail -- cash only authorities said. Kearny Police Chief John Dowie told The Observer the girl was walking on Highland Ave. about 8 a.m. Tuesday June 4 when she was accosted. The man reportedly grabbed her and tried to take her with him along the street. She struggled free and fled Dowie said. At KHS she notified the school administration and the KPD s high school resource officer P.O. Steve Montanino of the incident. Montanino broadcast a description of the suspect and his last known location and all available KPD resources were sent to the area. On the 100 block of Maple St. Lt. Anthony Gouveia saw a man matching the description see ACCOST page A right to be proud Photos by Shannon Stoia and Peter Lemos KHS Canstructors with Bob the Builder and his truck Scoop By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent KEARNY The sculptures have been constructed -- and deconstructed. The canned goods have disappeared from Kearny High School and been delivered to food pan- tries and community food banks around the area. The students have turned their attention to other things like graduation. But the memories and the sense of service and accomplishment linger on. And will for a very long time. For the second year KHS students participated in a project called Canstruction a nationwide effort to both collect food donations and to raise awareness of hunger -- around the world in the United States and in their local communities. Yes there is hunger even in thriving exurbia. The fact that it is often hidden makes it no less a crisis for families that have difficulty putting food on the table.

Drivers traveling southbound on Passaic Ave. need only cast their eyes towards the river to Riverside Park north of Skinner Bros. Automotive to see proof that the Kearny Community Garden or the Orchard as Mayor Alberto Santos likes to call it is a work in progress. Two-hundred straw bales are laid out in 11 parallel rows implanted with the seeds of a variety of vegetables and irrigated by an ingenious water system designed by Kearny Public Works Superintendent Donald Gavin consisting of underground PVC pipes linked to a roadside hydrant. One end of the system in turn leads to a tap to which a hose may be attached to periodically spray the bales. David Mach who along with his spouse Jenny created the nearby butterfly garden now sprouting with a variety of flowers are also part of the core group that devised the community garden experiment.

Anthony Monteiro was appointed acting East Newark Police Chief effective June 1 in place of former Chief Kenneth Sheehan who retired May 31. As provided by a borough ordinance up for adoption June 12 Monteiro s annual base salary will be fixed at 91 754 an increase from his prior sergeant s pay of about 80 000 a year. Mayor Joseph Smith said that he and the Borough Council will review the new chief s status and pay level after he s had six months on the job. Asked about the sergeant vacancy created by Monteiro s elevation in rank Smith said Under our contract with the PBA (Patrolman s Benevolent Association) we have 60 days to fill that position. Chief and sergeant are the only superior officers on the eight-member police force plus one special officer. Until his elevation to chief Monteiro served as sergeant since Nov. 21 2012 borough records show. East Newark doesn t follow state Civil Service procedure in hiring and or promoting police. After seeking applicants for the chief s position Monteiro and Officer Robert Tomasko a former borough volunteer fire chief expressed interest. Smith said both were interviewed by two of the three members of the borough Police Committee Councilmen Charles Tighe and (Hans) Pete Lucas and himself. Ed Serafin the chairman of that committee was working that night so I filled in the mayor said. Both men have about the same time on the force Smith said. In the end Smith said there was a consensus to go with Monteiro. He s got an unblemished record he s been a sergeant for six months he s a cop s cop he s played everything by the book and he s tri-lingual he speaks Spanish Portuguese and English. We felt it was time to consider that factor given the town s changing rison High School Monteiro enrolled at New Jersey Institute of Technology intending to study architecture. But he had to forgo the academics for full-time employment which he found with the East Newark Police Department. Monteiro s cousin Augie Rodrigues is a detective with the Harrison Police Department having worked there for more than 15 years. In 2003 Monteiro began serving as a member of the East Newark Volunteer Fire Department. While working as a rankand-file cop in the borough Monteiro was an active member of the PBA having served as both treasurer and president. Soon enough though Monteiro will find himself as a borough advocate sitting on the other side of the bargaining table when he ll be asked for input into labor contract talks. The borough s four-year contract with the PBA runs out this December so he ll likely be in the thick of discussions about salaries and working conditions. On a personal note Monteiro and his wife Gloria a financial analyst in the private sector have two daughters Sophia 5 and Sarah 4. While he s not involved in any organized borough recreation programs he makes a point to interact with kids in the borough playground next to Borough Hall Police Headquarters. He ll be teaming with his former chief who has asked to stay on as the borough s emergency management coordinator as the deputy coordinator. Still getting accustomed to his new duties Monteiro who will celebrate his 38th birthday in August has taken time to informally meet with the rest of the department.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is working closely with the Lower Passaic River Study Area Cooperating Partners Group representatives of some 70 companies who ve agreed to accept the responsibility of removing industrial pollutants from the waterway. The EPA said it s focusing on the mudflats near Riverside County Park because it s found high levels of contaminants like dioxin mercury and PCBs there. However EPA says that Celebrate the Class of 2013 with a 20.13 Bonus Photo courtesy of EPA A section of Lyndhurst mudflats slated for dredging.

Member FDIC sampling and testing of soil contained in the Lyndhurst and North Arlington sections of the park itself shows nothing alarming and has greenlighted recreational activities there while the work at the mudflats proceeds. At a public meeting held in the Lyndhurst Senior Center on June 5 Stan Kaczmarek senior project director for the Cooperating Partners Group outlined a scenario for the cleanup. EPA has yet to sign off on the design plan but EPA Project Manager Stephanie Vaughn says it s 90% completed and expects no major obstacles. If things go according to schedule the cleanup will launch after the July 4th weekend Kaczmarek said. In the meantime four buoys have been set up two on either side of the mudflat area one north of the Rt. 3 bridge and one south of the DeJessa (Park Ave.) bridge with equipment that s testing the turbidity amount of sediment in the river. Vaughn said those readings will show the levels of sediment stirred up by the natural flow of the river so that when machinery begins removing material from the mudflats EPA will know not to increase it beyond what naturally occurs so as to avoid creating more disruption and possible spread of toxins. Starting in early July Kaczmarek said for six days a week between dawn and dusk excavators from the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock of Staten Island will scoop out the top two feet of sediment in the riverbed a total of 20 000 cubic yards and dump the stuff into barges which will be sent down river to the Clean Earth of North Jersey plant in Kearny a hazardous waste processing facility. As a precaution all dredging work will be enclosed in fairly shallow water by polypropylene silt curtains anchored by floats he said. And we don t expect any chemical odors or anything volatile he added. But air monitors will be installed at the edge of the park and in the water around the dredging site as a further precaution. At least five bridges that cross the Passaic the DeJessa Bridge Rt. 7 Bridge Clay St. Bridge Bridge St. Bridge and Pennsylvania Railroad (Center St.) Bridge will have to be opened periodically to allow for the barge transport down river each day. These openings will be timed to happen at night or during early morning. Kaczmarek conceded that the dredging and barge traffic will be an inconvenience to recreational boaters and area high school crew teams that use the river. Every effort will be made to minimize disruption he said.

And the government is building a million square foot facility in Utah maybe it will turn out to be our next national monument as a repository for the multi-billions of bytes of information about its citizens (and outsiders too) our comings and goings who we re talking to for how long etc. Pretty sophisticated stuff. I ve been meaning to clean out my accumulated electronic trash for some time now. The government is welcome to it. I guess the National Security Agency will be if it hasn t already done so programming high speed computers to match up patterns of communication among terror suspects and maybe then someone or something after the President gives the go signal will dispatch a drone to take out the target. And we re told at least a few people we elected to Congress bothered to read some briefing papers prepared by the people in charge of official government secrets and began worrying aloud whether this was too much invasion of our privacy and maybe a breach of the Constitution. And the government got upset not because maybe our individual liberties may be under siege but because some darned government bureaucrat entrusted with national security clearance went and told some newspaper reporter about what was happening. What with China hacking our electronic data bases and the U.S. perhaps in partnership with Israel playing havoc with Iranian computer systems this whole snooping business is getting really sloppy. It reminds me of the really bad old days when the country was battling the Depression (not like today when government economists cheered the latest unemployment rate because more people were actually going out and looking for work imagine that ) and Kaufman & Hart penned a daffy comedy called You Can t Take it with You. In the play which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1937 Martin Vanderhoff the central character of an eccentric New York household says he sees no sense in paying the government income taxes because the government won t know what to do with the money. Another character Ed Carmichael makes homemade candies and prints anarchist slogans on the candy boxes just for the fun of it. Things go rather swimmingly for a while until a family hobby goes awry and a big set of fireworks blows up in the basement causing much consternation among federal gendarmes. It all ends happily of course with a wealthy industrialist s son getting hitched to a member of the daffy brood. The point here is that even in what was one of America s darkest hours the nation gave itself permission to laugh perhaps a bit nervously at its own real fears while showing respect for what we today might refer to as home values. Yes the world can be a dangerous place but all nations can do a better job to make it safer and healthier for all of us who live here. Thousands of Turks havecome out to protest the proposed razing of a popular urban park slated to be uprooted by a shopping center only to be tear-gassed by local police while the government s leader detached himself from the situation. Simply amazing. Ron Leir Don t forget to check www.theobserver.com for news that didn t make it into this week s paper Follow us on Facebook & twitter.com theobservernj WE VE GOT MAIL To the Editor This week s issue of Time magazine brings more documentation that vegetarians live longer than their meatchomping friends. A six-year study of 70 000 Seventh-Day Adventists published in the current issue of the American Medical Association s prestigious Journal of Internal Medicine found that vegetarians and vegans have a 12% lower risk of death. This is but the latest evidence linking meat consumption to diseases that kill 1.3 million Americans annually. It comes only two months Avoid meat live longer after a discovery at the Cleveland Clinic that carnitine contained in all meat products is a major factor in heart failure. Similarly an Oxford University study of nearly 45 000 adults published in last January s American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that vegetarians were 32% less likely to suffer from heart disease than people who ate meat and fish. A Harvard University study of 37 698 men and 83 644 women published in last year s Archives of Internal Medicine concluded that meat consumption raises the risk of heart disease and cancer mortality. Indeed each of us can find our own fountain of youth by adopting a meat and dairy-free diet. An Internet search on vegan recipes or live vegan provides ample resources.

Harrison Police Det. Sgt. Ed Markowski gave this account An East Newark man called 911 emergency at 11 57 p.m. May 28 and told police he d just been robbed by someone with what appeared to be a handgun. The victim told police he parked his car at Grant and Reynolds Aves. under Rt. 280 got out and was followed by an unknown male who abruptly asked him Did you want to get shot in the face Then pointing to what looked to be a weapon tucked under his waistband the man said Give me everything you got He then punched the victim in the face. The victim turned over his iPhone to his attacker who ran to a Hamilton St. parking lot where a vehicle was waiting. The victim told police he heard a woman s voice yelling Come on let s go At that point police said the victim lost track of the pair. Police said the victim provided officers with information that allowed them to activate a find my phone app linked to the victim s cell phone which led police to Clark St. and Belgrove Drive in Kearny but police were unable to locate anyone in that area. Shortly afterward police said the cell phone appeared to shut off. At that point police said they broadcast an alert and a description of the suspect to police in surrounding communities. But the trail went cold until about an hour later when police said East Newark Police Officer Billy Erezuma called Harrison P.D. to say he saw someone matching the description in the borough. Harrison Police then drove the victim to that location where they said he identified the man as the individual who robbed him. Acting East Newark Police Chief Anthony Monteiro told The Observer that Erezuma a six-year member of the department and president of the PBA unit was on patrol when he spotted the suspect sitting at a bus stop at Passaic and Central Aves. and immediately alerted Harrison P.D. Police then arrested the suspect Hector Ramos 24 of Newark on a robbery charge. Police said they learned that Ramos was wanted on two outstanding warrants from Seaside Heights and one from Newark.

KEARNY THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 12 2013 11 Cultivate body & mind to serve God The following is an interview with Swami Mukundananda by Nilima Mehra producer with Global TV Network of the Washington D.C. area that was broadcast Aug. 19 2011. Nilima Mehra I read your biodata. You are such an accomplished educationalist. Please tell us first something about your education. Swami Mukundananda Well Nilimaji I first did [a bachelor s degree in technology] in mechanical engineering from IIT Delhi. After that I went on to do MBA from IIM Calcutta. I worked for some time in a company named TataBurroughs. That was the time when the IT industry in India was just taking off. This was one of the first IT companies in India. NM Please tell our viewers why did you give up all this professionalism and move on to spirituality SM Nilimaji while I was doing engineering there were many questions which came to my mind. We were being exposed to a number of laws of science. But my question was Why are there laws in existence Who is the lawmaker What is my purpose in this creation Why am I here What is the goal of life These questions were not being answered in science. When I began my management course I was being taught all the humanities subjects as well. Yet I found my questions still remained unanswered. That was the time I came across the philosophy of the Bhagavad Geeta through a class fellow on mine. When I started reading the Geeta it was as if all my doubts got resolved at the same time. The conviction came very strongly that I am not the body I am the eternal soul. I am a tiny part of God. And that my goal in life is to serve God. So along with my studies I started practicing spiritual sadhana. That was so relishable so blissful I began spending my weekends in the ashram with devotees. The decision came very strong that this is what I wish to do in life. I did take a job. But it did not satisfy me. The question arose in my mind Is this the fulfillment of my life To put in my best efforts to enhance the profits of the shareholders of this company I decided if I have to serve then why not serve the Supreme Almighty SM While I was working my training period was complete. I had been assigned to a project in the United States. I was thinking let me go around and see the world. And later I will take sannyas (monkhood) At that time a sannyasi (monk) told me a very interesting incident. He said There was a person sitting on the banks of the Ganges river with chipped rice in front of him thinking of offering it to the Lord. The doubt in his mind however was that if he offered the chipped rice maybe the Lord would take it all and there would be nothing left for himself. He was thinking Should I offer it Should I not offer it In the meantime a gust of wind came and all the rice was blown away. So the person said Oh Lord I offer everything to you Now that offering makes no sense when it has blown out of his hands. In the same way the sannyasi (monk) said to me if you come in your old age and tell the Lord I have surrendered to You God will say what is the meaning of this surrender When you have your future in front of you and you offer it to the Lord He will accept that yes you have made a sacrifice for me. That story touched me so deeply in the heart that I immediately resigned from my job and took sannyas (monkhood). NM Swamiji give us your ideas your input and your inner feelings on What is mediation Who should meditate Where does one reach with meditation How often should one meditate SM All of us are tormented by the mind. The mind if it is controlled focused and pure it is our best friend. The uncontrolled mind can be our worst enemy. As John Milton said The mind is its own place and in itself can make a heaven of hell a hell of heaven. So everyone realizes it is important to train purify and elevate the mind. To fill and enrich it with inspirsee SWAMI page 30 The Jersey Shore has come to Kearny R 938 Passaic Ave Kearny 201-998-0600 Ice Cream Cones Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches vors Banana Splits zing Fla es 20 Ama alian Ic It t Ice Cream Sundays Gourme ding inclu Zeppoles moni i & Spu Cannol 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 Rated Excellence by NY Times The Spiekermann family proudly present Always in Good Taste we have ItalIan Ices & Gelatos THURSDAY Mazur s Bakery Mazur s Spiekermann Deli Friday Saturday & Sunday Free Sandwiches Discounts 323 Ridge Road Lyndhurst GRAND OPENING LIVE ACOUSTIC ROCK abluemoonrevue.com Book your Party at Roma 9PM - 12AM PRIVATE PARTY ROOMS (up to 75 people) Catering available for every occasion Full Line of Thumann s Cold Cuts Fresh Mozzarella daily 201-438-8500 www.MazursBakery.com 201-991-2550 33 Crystal St. North Arlington www.romaristorantenj.com 12 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 12 2013 CANSTRUCTION from participating schools.

Among them were 45 area businesses including Shop-Rite of Kearny which is a premier sponsor. Canstruction entails the design and building of structures and or sculptures composed entirely of the canned goods. It all requires a bit of engineering art and economics -- and a lot of student energy and effort. Overseeing the KHS effort was teacher Melody LaRossa. Students worked with a budgeted amount of money for their projects and researched the best cans for color size and price utilizing sales whenever possible Gilson reported. This year the two main projects created were A camera (using 8 800 cans) and Bob the Builder and his truck Scoop (5 145 cans). Participating in Canstruction were 32 students from the Engineering Club Mechanical Drawing and Architecture classes Gilson said. Also cited were the efforts of student volunteers from Rutgers Newark who assisted in shopping for the food and serving refreshments to the KHS kids working on the Canstructions. Paul Rogers community co-chairperson of the overall project along with Julie Smith of Valley National Bank explained that the Rutgers volunteers also make a final count of the cans divide them into categories box and label them and help deliver them. Members of the Kearny Fire Department and Police Department were among those helping collect the cans from for example Shop-Rite and then deliver the items to the food banks. This year Gilson said the 23 000 cans were divided among five local food pan- tries for distribution to individuals and families in need. It was Rogers a retired KFD captain who first approached KHS administrators last year with the Canstruction idea after seeing one of the national-project exhibits in New York. Coincidentally Gilson s first encounter with Canstruction was also in New York long before he was named KHS principal in late 2012. I had actually seen Canstuction years ago in Manhattan [Canstruction was launched in 1992]. I saw these amazing structures he recalled. When I took over at Kearny High School I found out about the project they did here last year he told The Observer. I thought Is this the same thing I saw 10 years ago in Manhattan It was full circle to me bizarre to say the least. Bizarre in the good way strange coincidences are. Then I began to learn through the Optimist Club and other community members how all the different participants pulled together he noted. Students learned to work together to overcome design challenges and issues students also made new friends with some they may never have interacted with and students had fun throughout the process of learning and helping others KHS staff noted. And what of next year Kearny High s Canstruction promises to be bigger and better than ever. But we are sworn to secrecy.

The Nutley native and recent Seton Hall graduate heard the names of some of his Seton Hall teammates get called and wondered when and if he would hear his own name. I talked to a bunch of teams for two months prior to the draft Papaccio said. But I really didn t know where I would go. Papaccio even traveled to Rochester N.Y. to work out for the Minnesota Twins scouts with Pirate teammates Brian Gilbert and Brian Granite and did a workout with the Pittsburgh Pirates in Lyndhurst also with Granite. About 10 days prior to the draft Chicago Cubs scout John Ceprini came to Nutley and spoke with Papaccio. They were the last team to contact me Papaccio said. As it turned out it was the Cubs that wanted Papaccio more than anyone else. The Cubs took Papaccio as the second pick in the 18th round. I heard my name then threw my laptop off my bed Papaccio said. I didn t see my name but when I did it was unbelievable. Just to have the opportunity to get picked is incredible. Papaccio was the 528th player selected overall. His teammates and friends Gilbert (No. 200) and Granite (No. 410) were selected right before him both by the Minnesota Twins as was Jon Prosinski (No. 301) by the Philadelphia Phillies. It s the most to be picked from Seton Hall since 1997 and I m really proud of that Papaccio said. Papaccio said that once he heard his name he went downstairs where his mother was waiting. She gave me the look and I gave her the thumbs up Papaccio said. She then started crying. Dad came home and he was crying. I couldn t say anything. Incredibly Saturday was Papaccio s 22nd birthday. It was hands down the best day of my life said Papaccio who earned Third Team AllAmerica status earlier in the week. I was thrilled that I went so high. Considering the round they must really trust me. It shows the type of faith see VIEW page Photo by Jim Hague The Queen of Peace contingent got together before competing last week at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions in South Plainfield.

It s really a blessing for me. Words can t explain the feeling. I am glad that I won and I want to keep the winning tradition going.

My main goal was to have them become competitive Spina said. I coached these kids when they were younger so I knew they could learn quickly. But they responded better than I could have imagined. In fact the Buccaneers were a major surprise posting a 17-8 record advancing to the finals of the Essex County Tournament and through two rounds of the NJSIAA state tourney. Words can t really explain the sense of pride I have for these kids Spina said. They were great. They exceeded all expectations. They took us on a ride that was so totally unexpected. Spina said that he has learned quickly to appreciate the good that a team can give. You have to cherish these moments because you never know how many other times you ll get like it Spina said. They were such a coachable group of kids. Spina said that only Carl Laroco the team s libero was a returning starter from 2012. Sophomore Marlon Rodriguez did see some action at the end of his freshman year but that was it. The remainder of the Buccaneers roster was filled with newcomers. We were in such a tough division that I would have been happy if we got close to story continued next page Photo courtesy of John Spina The Belleville boys volleyball team enjoyed a solid 2013 winning 17 matches and advancing to the Essex County Tournament finals and two rounds of the NJSIAA state tourney. Front row from left are Kevin Vicente Ammar Rahim Carl Laroco Andrew Roberts and Ray Cortez. Back row from l. are head coach John Spina P.J. Gencarelli Edward Edghill Stafon Kellam Edward Peralta Marlon Rodriguez Douglas Fonseca and assistant coach Ryan Sheridan. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 12 2013 19 .500 Spina said. But we went like 7-3 to start the season before facing (eventual league and county champion) Livington. We came together that day because we had nothing to lose and everything to gain. We played well against Livingston. It wasn t a complete shellacking. The second set we were up 21-20 and lost 25-21. That proved we belonged. Right after that match I knew we could compete. Spina said that the Buccaneers went to the finals of the Union City tournament before losing to Kearny. We were down to Kearny but kept storming back Spina said. That showed me a lot about the team s character. We then starting beating teams like Montclair West Essex and Bloomfield that were good teams. We beat Montclair pretty easily. The Buccaneers advanced all the way to the Essex County Tournament finals before falling to Livingston. In the state tournament the Buccaneers defeated Pope John of Sparta in the first round. They were a scrappy tough team Spina said. We were behind by seven points in the first game then relaxed and came back and won. We overcame the young team jitters and nerves. In the second round the Buccaneers faced Passaic County Tournament champion Wayne Valley and emerged victorious once again. We got down to the third set and won 26-24 Spina said. It was a great match. In the third round the Buccaneers had to travel all the way to face Vernon in Sussex County. We were on the bus for a long time Spina said. We just didn t do well and got beat pretty good. They played much better than we did. They didn t make mistakes like we did. Of the team s eight losses three were to Livingston two to Bloomfield two to Vernon and one to Harrison. Looking back our eight losses were all against good teams Spina said. The good news for the Buccaneers is that almost their entire starting lineup returns next year. Laroco was the lone starting senior. Of course they were able to make a name for themselves this year Spina said. What more could they possibly do But next year they re now on everyone s radar. It s a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is that everyone will be scared of us but the bad thing is that everyone will be gunning for us. So Spina sent his team off into the offseason with a mission. I think they have to come back next year and take it to the next level Spina said. It s one thing to go to the finals but there was a common theme. We lost. We couldn t seal the deal. Next year has to be the year we win. We have a good group coming back. We can t miss a beat. Everyone will be gunning for us. We have to do a little better. Spina said that 10 of his players are going to volleyball camp together and many will play club volleyball over the summer. If we do all the stuff we re supposed to do in the offseason then next year will be our year Spina said. We re going to make a step up next year if they work hard. The plans are already in place.

We Think of Your Teeth as a Work of Art In order for the eyes to transmit a single clear image to the brain the focusing power of the cornea and eye lens must work in coordination with the extraocular muscles that rotate the eyes and the optic nerves that carry visual information to the brain. Finally the brain must be able to process the visual information properly. Because problems involving double vision ( diplopia ) can involve any of these various components of the visual system detecting its cause may potentially require comprehensive evaluation. Diplopia linked with the cornea (herpes zoster corneal scars and dryness) usually involves only one eye while cataracts are usually the cause of lens-related double vision. Muscle problems can stem from autoimmune illness or a thyroid condition. We are a state of the art ophthalmology facility designed to answer all your eye-care needs.

Acording to the EPA the tract is contaminated with a number of hazardous chemicals including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and dioxin. PCBs are likely cancercausing chemicals and can have serious neurological effects. Exposure to dioxin can also result in serious health effects including cancer the agency said in its press release which also noted that fish-consumption advisories have been issued for the Hackensack due to river contamination originating in part from the Standard Chlorine site. The soil ground water and two lagoons were contaminated with dioxin benzene 01 naphthalene PCBs and volatile organic compounds the EPA reported. The site was originally littered with tanks and drums containing hazardous substances including dioxin and asbestos. According to reports in 2003 the tract had been under consideration for designation as a national Superfund site but the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) pulled it off the candidate list reportedly because DEP believed it could effect a more efficient cleanup than the feds could. Work apparently did not progress very far and in 2007 the EPA asked the DEP to reconsider-- and it did. The tract was added to the Superfund list in September of that year. Since then parties responsible for the pollution -- with oversight by the NJDEP and the EPA -- [have addressed] the immediate risks to public the EPA said. The dioxin and asbestos have been collected and dis- Map courtesy of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency posed of at facilities licensed to receive the waste the agency reported. Contaminated buildings on-site were demolished and removed. The two contaminated lagoons were emptied of water filled with clean material and covered. A slurry wall was installed between the site and the Hackensack River to keep contamination from moving into the river. A system of pumps is being used to bring the polluted ground water to the surface where it can be cleaned. Under the new agreement the study and evaluation of potential cleanup technologies will be conducted before the EPA issues a proposed cleanup plan for the remaining work at the site the agency noted. This agreement marks an important step in the cleanup of the Standard Chlorine Chemical site said EPA Regional Administrator Judith Enck who added that it illustrates how the Superfund law works to make polluters not taxpayers pay to clean up sites like this one. Kearny Mayor Alberto Santos told The Observer that once the site is cleaned the Town of Kearny which has title can use it for redevelopment.
