June 19 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXVI No. 4 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Where will E. Newark kids end up By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent EAST NEWARK For much of its entire 118year history since it broke away from Kearny s First Ward the borough of East Newark (population 2 400) has maintained a single public school for kindergarten to grade 8 and has consistently sent its graduates to high school in neighboring Harrison. Now however the borough is going shopping for a new high school and might even look to the place it separated from so many years ago Kearny. Why It simply comes down to money said Mayor Joseph Smith who chairs the borough s Board of School Estimate which fixes the local school tax rate. Smith said that the borough is looking elsewhere not because it s unhappy with the education its kids are getting in Harrison but rather because of rising tuition costs and that s between 40% and 50% of our school budget. For the 2012-2013 school year the East Newark Board of Education paid Harrison s school district 14 674 for every borough student attending Harrison High School Smith said. For the 2009-2010 school year the rate was 11 067 per see SHOPPING page Nastiness in Nutley Police Department then Strumolo can fire his next round with a formal lawsuit that would expose the mayor and the townNUTLEY disgruntled Nutship to further embarrassley Police supement and potentially big rior officer has liabilities. fired the opening round The 12-page claim alin a battle with Mayor leges that Petracco has Alphonse Petracco the steadfastly refused to protownship Public Safety mote Captain Strumolo director accusing the to Deputy Chief despite mayor of political inthe fact that he is the terference in the Police highest ranked and only Department. eligible [candidate] on Capt.

It was also a muchappreciated reminder. Every year your correspondent thinks I must remember Flag Day. And then I forget. Flag Day alas is one of those American observances that has nearly fallen by the wayside. It appears to no longer be recognized nationally in any special way. But luckily small towns across the U.S. and the patriots who dwell therein are keeping it alive. It marks the anniversary of the day June 14 1777 when the Second Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the new country. Coincidentally the same day also marks the official birthday of the U.S. Army on June 14 1775. Trying to determine when Flag Day itself Troop 20502 performed the exacting flag-folding ceremony one sees most often at veterans funerals. This flag about to be officially retired was representative of some 250 American flags dropped off at the Public Affairs offices during the year byNutleyites -- flags that were faded or tattered or torn. American flags no longer suitable for display are not to be tossed in the trash. Rogers explained that all 250 from Nutley would be delivered to a crematorium where they will be burned That is the only acceptable form of disposal for the Stars and Stripes. In his remarks at the ceremony Rogers noted that June 14 is an important day for every American but unfortunately across the country we have seen some of these important days disappearing. Not in Nutley. Of the ceremony Rogers said We do it for the younger generation. On Flag Day honoring the flag and the Americans who have served and are serving under Old Glory is a reminder that freedom cost a lot and is a tribute to those who paid the price those who came before us the commissioner said.

(Or maybe my lack of research skills is to blame.) In any case reportedly the first commemoration took place June 14 1861 in Hartford Conn. at the suggestion of a resident of that city named George Morris. Or maybe Jonathan Morris. But it wasn t until 1916 with World War I raging in Europe that Flag Day was made official via proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson. It was then made legislatively official in 1949 when President Harry S Truman signed the Act of Congress establishing June 14 as the date. For an exceedingly readable history of Flag Day I direct you to a 2011 article by Adam Goodheart published in a New York Times blog. Just Google Unhappy Flag Day. Which is the headline on the piece. It recounts the ups and downs of the holiday. Goodheart writes It was destined eventually to become the runty stepchild among American national holidays. One hundred and fifty years after its original creation no one ever hosts a Flag Day cookout or sends a Flag Day greeting card. Nobody gets to take a long weekend away from the office. Even the most customerhungry car dealers don t advertise Flag Day sales. And today exactly 150 years [this was from 2011 remember] after it was first celebrated almost no one seems to have noticed the anniversary. But Nutley notices this year and in past years. We attended the brief but solemn and moving ceremony last Friday afternoon.

They have wings and fangs and fierce expressions. But if you look in their eyes you can see they are gentle creatures. We know all this because we saw the dragons for ourselves a whole herd (flock ) of them right outside the main office at Lincoln School on Cross St. These dragons were made of aluminum cake pans coffee cup lids cardboard tubes egg cartons and innumerable other items one might not expect to be part of a dragon unless you have a wonderful imagination. And secondgraders usually do. The beasties were part of the school s annual art show which spotlights the creativity of Lincoln s 270 students. Under the guidance of art teacher Regina Green-Paradiso with assistance this year from Hamilton School art teacher Cienne Keegan the youngsters in kindergarten through third grade used various recyclable materials -- and the aforementioned imaginations -- to produce artwork for the show open to the public last Wednesday evening. More than 600 people attended the event which has been held for more than 25 years. As always said Lincoln Principal Jo Ann DignazioBotch we were very pleased with our students projects and the families participation in viewing our show. Each class has its own individual project which incorporates not only art but other subjects (writing science math etc.) in a cross-curriculum learning experience. Each of the dragons for instance bore a short description written by the child who created it. ( The dragon lived in the castle with fire on it. It was a boy. It was on TV. ) see ART SHOW page 22 No-Point Mortgages 15-YEAR FIXED 20-YEAR FIXED Photos by Karen Zautyk At left Artworks (clockwise from bottom) The Lion Sees the Jungle made from plastic markers pipecleaner octopus catching shrimp hungry (or laughing) dragon made from cake pan cereal bowls and egg carton.

I am not sure exactly what Human Interface Technology is but it apparently has something to do with improving human computer interaction. I m not sure what that is either but the first thing I thought of was Hello HAL. Do you read me HAL Affirmative Dave. I read you. Open the pod-bay doors HAL. I m sorry Dave. I m afraid I can t do that. But I digress. The HIT expert Dr. Christoph Bartneck has reportedly examined 3 665 LEGO minifigures produced from 1975 to 2010 and has discovered what is to some an alarming trend. According to the university s website he found The number of happy faces . . . is decreasing and the number of angry faces is increasing. So Said Bartneck Children s toys and how they are perceived can have a significant impact on children. We cannot help but wonder how the move from only positive faces to an increasing number of negative faces impacts on how children play. Hey this is important stuff. Bartneck will present a paper on his findings at the International Conference on HumanAgent Interaction to be held in August in Japan. Suppose we are raising a generation of children who can never outgrow the psychological effects that growly veloped by the manufacturer was tested by a range of children while child psychiatrists parents and teachers were also consulted. He also noted that in LEGO games the good guys always win in the end. And he told The Guadian if parents are still concerned they can always just switch heads with another figure.

As New Jersey s Long Term Care Ombudsman I oversee a state- and federally-funded program that advocates for elderly people living in longterm care facilities like nursing homes and assisted-living residences. While the care and treatment of elderly individuals in long-term care facilities is strictly regulated and can be very good these facilities are not exempt from incidents of abuse neglect and exploitation. Indeed anywhere you have Volunteer as advocate for elderly extremely vulnerable people there is the potential for serious abuse. That is why I urge anyone who is truly concerned about elder abuse and exploitation to call my office at 609-8265053 to find out about how to become a Volunteer Advocate in a local nursing home. Volunteer Advocates receive 32 hours of training and asked to spend four hours a week at a local nursing home listening to residents concerns and advocating on their behalf. We have a critical need for volunteers in the northeastern part of the state especially in Hudson County where there are 17 nursing homes but we have just nine volunteers and in Essex County where there are 34 facilities but just 15 volunteers assigned. The need is clearly there. If you are interested in having a direct impact on the lives of elderly citizens in nursing homes please consider becoming a Volunteer Advocate. James W.

Arlington man wrote starred in first film By Angelica Rebozo Observer Correspondent Wednesday May 29 was a regular business day for most of us but for Gerard Garilli it was the beginning of making his dream come true. He is a young man from North Arlington with the dream of being in the film industry. He works alongside his father in father s photography business and has always dreamed of being a film maker. I ve always been a fan of movies ever since I was a little kid from Back to the Future to Billy Madison to Taxi Driver every type of genre I always liked it he says. Garilli made two short films last year called August 18 and Hunt s Place which were very experimental and helped him hone the skills needed to write a script and create screenplays. Now a year later he is premiering his first film called Fratello at The Producer s Club in New York on 44th St. After I made those I knew it was like an addiction it s like eating Doritos you can t just have one and walk away I knew that this was my passion Garilli said. The film is about two down and out brothers who run into some trouble and have to natural because Steve and I have worked together and we have a really good relationship. The first day of shooting the director Tony Picciotti was giving the actors a hard time and never returned. It took Garilli some time to find a good director to work with and see his vision. He finally found Jason King who took over and everyone was very happy with him. The film was originally called On the Run and as coincidence would have Gannascoli was in a film with that name. Garilli decided to change it post production. Fratello s ethnic and I liked it he says grinning.

The saga began Saturday June 8 at 2 p.m. when P.O. Frank West responded to a report of a shoplifter at the Midtown Pharmacy at Kearny and Midland Aves. An individual fitting the description of the suspect who allegedly had stolen some candy bars was located in the area arrested and taken to KPD headquarters for processing. There Police Chief John Dowie said the man was searched and found to be in possession of quite a few forms of property -- bank cards and charge cards -- belonging to others. The chief said the suspect 22-year-old Marc Prezioso claimed he had found them. Nevertheless he was charged with credit card theft and shoplifting and released on summonses. On Monday June 10 at 4 a.m. P.O. Ben Wuelfing responded to North Midland Ave. on the report of a suspicious individual lurking near parked cars. Wuelfing found the man and asked for his identification. While he was producing same the officer noted he was also in possession of ID -- a debit card and a driver s license -- that apparently did not belong to him police said. Again he said he had found it Dowie reported. Again because the suspect was the same Marc Prezioso taken into custody on the 8th.

Sometimes it s rolled up and called Diploma www.romaristorantenj.com THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 19 2013 09 UNIFORMS from policy in place to hurt anyone McDermott said. If anything he said it should dissuade kids from bullying peers just because they happen to be wearing clothing purchased from a discount retailer. Uniforms aren t what makes kids personalities McDermott said. That starts at home and hopefully is reinforced at school. Allowing students to dress in a helter-skelter manner serves only as a deterrent to education McDermott asserted. Since the weather has turned warm we ve had an average of 15 to 20 kids a day 04 sent to the principal s office for dress code violations he said. If you figure 15 minutes per child for getting pulled out of class having to report to an administrator and so forth that s a total of five hours of education time lost Although it will be up to parents and or guardians to bear the uniform cost the board policy resolution predicts that they ll actually save money in the long run by avoiding catering to kids clamoring for more expensive garments. However the resolution notes fundraising opportunities community donation programs and corporate scholarships will defray the cost of the school uniforms for economically disadvantaged students. McDermott said the district has reached out to PTA and the North Arlington Education Foundation to ask them to consider setting aside funds for needier families who may require assistance but his expectation is that few will ask based on similar efforts in Harrison and Lyndhurst. How many other districts in the state have adopted uniform rules is hard to say. The New Jersey School Boards Association doesn t track such trends but the National Center for Education Statistics has reported that as of 2009-2010 the most recent year available nearly 19% of schools nationwide require students to wear uniforms and nearly 57% of principals reported having a strict dress code. Meanwhile in a follow-up to the public s approval to spend 3.1 million for upgrading Rip Collins Field the board authorized advertising for soil test borings at the project site to check for any environmental contamination. It s part of our due diligence McDermott said. By summer s end McDermott said he expected that the board would contract for the demolition of our old buildings at the project site. Last month Board Secretary Business Administrator Kathleen Marano reported to the board that Valley National Bank had agreed to purchase 1 150 000 in notes at an interest rate of 0.58% to be repaid by Dec. 4 as a partial drawdown of money required for the Collins Field project. At the June 3 meeting the board also approved the hiring of Jennifer Rodriquez to replace Nicole Russo as principal of Jefferson Elementary School. Russo was named last month to replace Dan DiGuglielmo who is retiring June 30 after spending the last decade as Middle School principal and after 35 years as an educator in the district.

But for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year Smith said Harrison had proposed charging 16 900 per student but when we hollered and screamed about that they agreed to bring it down to 16 300. In the meantime the board has filed an appeal of the Harrison tuition rate on the grounds that it s still too fiscally onerous for borough taxpayers. And its attorney has filed an Open Public Records Act request with the Harrison school district for the past decade of tuition records. We re asking them for documentation to justify what they re charging Smith said. For that reason Smith said the borough is exploring the possibility of sending its kids to Kearny High School. The tuition rate would be lower than Harrison s and there s room at KHS for East Newark s kids according to Smith. We re looking at possibly running one or two buses to get our kids to Kearny and back he added. Harrison Schools Superintendent James Doran com- 01 mented The parents of East Newark children are being well-served by Harrison. We don t see how it would be in the children s best safety and health interests to travel to Kearny. If Kearny s school board were to accept the proposition Smith said the borough wouldn t be inclined to do an all or nothing switch involving grades 9 to 12. We d maybe look to keep the juniors and seniors in Harrison initially and start with incoming freshmen and sophomores he said. Currently East Newark has 119 youths attending Harrison High but it s projecting it will have 139 enrolled by the fall term. But before anything could happen East Newark would first have to get the state s okay to make any switch. Under state school law the Board of Education of either a sending school district (in this case East Newark) or receiving district (Harrison) must petition the state Commissioner of Education to terminate the existing relationship based on statutory criteria set by N.J. Statute Title 18A 38-13 including for example financial instability being created for one district or the other. To make its case the East Newark school board would have to do a feasibility study to be submitted to the Commissioner to judge the merits of the petition for withdrawal. According to N.J. School Boards Association spokesman Michael Yaple there have been 21 petitions for withdrawal from sending receiving relationships filed by various districts from around the state since 1982. While we don t keep a won loss count Yaple said we can say anecdotally it s been running about 50 50. If East Newark loses its tuition appeal Smith said the school board may be looking at having to revise its budget to absorb the increase in tuition fees by making cuts to services such as preventive maintenance field trips and so forth. We d have to cut everything other than what s academicsrelated to the bone Smith said unless the state would agree to increase our state aid or give us extraordinary aid. The alternative he said is to retain those services and increase taxes.

Strumolo alleges in the claim that his rivalry with Petracco stems from October 2009 when he refused to participate in union-busting conduct which he says the mayor proposed against an [unnamed] officer in the Department. After referring several complaints he received as Internal Affairs boss against Petracco to the Essex County Prosecutor s Office Strumolo alleged Petracco retaliated by refusing to promote him to deputy chief and further that Petracco tried several times to change the department s Table of Organization by eliminating the deputy chief position and adding two captain positions thereby setting the stage for promoting the mayor s favored [unnamed] officers. Strumolo s claim alleged that Petracco initially tried to alter the T.O. by introducing an ordinance Oct. 16 2012 but pulled it after a premeeting caucus then did introduce the legislation Nov. 30 2012 only to see it narrowly rejected. On Jan. 15 2013 Strumolo said Petracco sought to re-introduce the ordinance to change the T.O. this time proposing to eliminate the deputy chief rank and add one captain claiming that the township would save money in the process which Strumolo s claim denies and proposed the hiring of a consultant at a 17 500 cap for a study of the Police Department in what Strumolo s claim characterized as an attempt to create an after the fact justification for the proposed T.O. change. After a lengthy caucus however Petracco withdrew both proposals but the following day the Strumolo claim says Petracco retaliated by instructing Chief Holland to assign [Strumolo] to the night shift and to order [Strumolo] to wear his uniform as opposed to plainclothes while on duty. At the township meeting of Feb. 5 2013 Petracco re-introduced the proposed hiring of the consultant SDM which was approved by a 2-1 vote. However the Strumolo claim notes SDM has never visited the [Police] Department or consulted with Chief Holland or any other member of the Department .... Nor has SDM s study ever been released. Despite the mayor s claim that he s trying to save the township money he has hired five new dispatchers at a salary of 45 000 each and a second administrative assistant for 47 000 despite the fact that no other [Township] Commissioner has two administrative assistant and [that] he had to change the salary ordinance to add this position Strumolo s claim states. By declaring Strumolo too young for promotional consideration Petracco committed reverse age discrimination the claim alleges. Petracco s conduct also violates the federal whistleblower act and the state Civil Rights Act the claim alleges. At the June 4 Township Commission meeting Nutley PBA Local 33 President Gerard Tusa echoed the Strumolo contention that politics not public safety are at the heart of the Department s direction of late and cited the mayor s extending of all police promotional lists as an indication that Mayor Petracco wanted the list extended to promote his friends over those deserving candidates who are better suited for the position. According to Tusa the mayor s motivation is to remove control of the Department from our Chief. Such interference Tusa said will not only jeopardize the safety of the police officers but the safety of the general public as well. Tusa told the commissioners that his members deserve a safe ethical and honest place to work free of political pressure and backlash. If the police department falls so does the Township....

I m just along for the ride. We really have put together a very talented team a great group of kids. American Legion baseball may be a dying breed throughout New Jersey but not at the Lyndhurst Post 139. We have more than 80 years of tradition in baseball said Voza who took over the reins as manager three summers ago. We re not giving up. The Legion Post recently had a fifth anniversary reunion of the team that won the New Jersey state championship in 2008 and went all the way to the East Region tourney in Connecticut. The Post 139 people are behind us all the way Voza said. They give us great support. That s why without any hesitation or doubt Voza took his team last weekend to a wooden bat tournament in Scranton Pa. Several local grid standouts get one last chance Play for East squad in 20th Robeson All-Star Classic It was an eight-team four-game three-day tourney on the campus of the University of Scranton a tournament held in the memory of Fred Battaglia one of the biggest wooden bat advocates in Pennsylvania. We went to the tournament to honor Fred his name and what he did for American Legion baseball Voza said. He was an old-school guy and believed that playing with the wood bats was the way to go. It wasn t hard to get the kids interested in playing. So the Post did a little fundraising bought a few wood bats and sent the kids to Scranton. Little did they know that they would come home with the tournament championship. Lyndhurst Post 139 won all four games in the tourney defeating a previously undefeated team from Latrobe Pa. in the first round 4-3 then defeating host South Scranton 3-2 then defeated New Milford Conn. 2-0 with pitcher Kevin Rehbein firing a no-hitter then defeating Oneonta see VIEW next page Photo by Jim Hague The East squad in the 20th annual Robeson High School Football All-Star Classic was well represented by local talent.

By Jim Hague Observer Sports Writer EAST ORANGE Before he heads off to Union College in Schenectady N.Y. Nutley s Chris Merkle is fortunate enough to get the chance to represent his town and school a few more times as a football player. When the Nutley regular season ended last November Merkle a standout two-way lineman for the Maroon Raiders was certain that was it. I thought my high school career was over Merkle said. I thought I had a pretty good senior season but that was it. I wasn t expecting to get picked for anything else so I was getting ready to go play in college. However Merkle who will be an offensive tackle in college was wrong. He was selected to play in two high school All-Star games. First was the Robeson AllStar High School Football Classic which was played last Tuesday night fittingly at Robeson Stadium in East Orange. The game is named for the legendary Paul Robeson the New Jersey native who was once named as the greatest defensive football player to ever play high school football in New Jersey. Merkle was one of 10 local graduating high school seniors selected to play in the game for the East All-Stars. It was a great feeling to be out there Merkle said. I hadn t played in a while so it was great to get back into the swing of things. This weekend Merkle will head to Kean University to participate in the New Jersey Football Coaches Association s North-South All-Star Classic. He will get four days of preparation at Kean before the game Monday night at 7 p.m. Merkle is one of only two New Jersey players selected to play in both games joining Kamau Dumas of Morristown who is headed to Monmouth University to play. I m very excited to get the opportunity to play in both games Merkle said. I m so happy and thankful to get the chance to play. It is kind of tough doing this for two weeks. see all STaR page 17 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 19 2013 VIEW from 15 N.Y. in the title game 7-3. The kids played great all weekend Voza said. Two of our games were at 9 a.m. but they were up and ready. They didn t make a single error in four games. It was amazing to watch. Voza said that the highlight of the weekend was the no-hitter from Rehbein the former Lyndhurst High School standout who now attends Rutgers-Newark. Not everyone is sold on Rehbein being a front line starter but I believe in Kevin like nobody s business Voza said. Voza likes the makeup of his pitching staff that includes Rehbein Willie Krajnik a Lyndhurst resident who just graduated from St. Mary s of Rutherford Anthony Pacillo a recent graduate of St. Peter s Prep who also resides in Lyndhurst and Bobby Miskura of Rutherford and Drew University. We have a nice rotation of kids who can pitch play first and be the designated hitter Voza said. We ll move them in and out.

The second baseman is Danny Wagner a guy who Voza said plays with more enthusiasm than anyone I ve ever seen. The shortstop is Rex McMillian a former Rutherford High standout headed to NJIT in the fall. He scored six runs in the Scranton tourney. Every college wanted him but he s going to NJIT Voza said. The third baseman is Jake Regina the standout wrestler at Rutherford High who is headed to Maryland to wrestle in the fall. He has the best swing on the team Voza said of Regina. He s a beast of a kid who hits the ball hard. Regina had seven hits in 13 at-bats and five RBI in the Scranton tournament. Another infielder is recent Queen of Peace graduate Mark Petrucelli. The left fielder is Adam Hernandez another Rutherford graduate headed to NJIT in the fall. In centerfield is Pat Landrigan who played at Rutherford and will go to Rowan University in the fall to play either football or baseball. Landrigan played in the Bergen County All-Star football game last weekend in Palisades Park. In right field is Jimmy Fitzgerald a Lyndhurst High grad who was on the Post 139 team last year. Fitzger- ald goes to New Jersey City University. Sergio Turelli a speedster on the Lyndhurst High state championship team is also on the roster. Turelli will return to Lyndhurst High in the fall. Two other St. Mary s graduates Kevin Van Dyke and J.R. Hilcher are pitchers as well. Hilcher recorded a save in the 3-2 win over South Scranton last Saturday and his grandfather is a member of Post 139. There is one major difference this year with the Post 139 squad. The Bergen County American Legion baseball league folded so the team had to find another league to join. They are now members of an American Legion league in Essex and Union counties. Some of the drives aren t the easiest to do but we look at it as a new challenge Voza said. We won the league and the district last year so this is something new. We ve embraced the new league. The local Post has already won one game in the league and will resume action with three home dates against Linden Friday night against Union Catholic and Sunday a doubleheader at 4 p.m. against Edison. All of the Post 139 home games are played at the Lyndhurst Recreation facility. We re off to a great start said Voza whose team now owns a 6-0 record after the tournament sweep in Scranton. It s going to be a great summer. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 19 2013 17 ALL STAR from All the practices take a little toll on the body. But I had a great experience playing in the Robeson game. I got to meet new players as teammates. Merkle said that he has been working on keeping in shape hoping to play right away when he gets to Union College. I ve been getting ready since the end of the football season Merkle said. I played basketball this year and that really helped my foot work. I always loved playing basketball and I m glad IO was on the team this year. Merkle said that participating in both All-Star games will be helpful. The priority was getting used to playing at college speed Merkle said. Hopefully I ll have a nice transition into college and play early. There was only one downside for the locals. The East squad lost the game 13-12 on a late touchdown. Belleville s Aaquil Ingram who was a last minute addition to the East squad worked his way into becoming one of the most versatile members of the team. In fact Bloomfield head coach Mike Carter one of the assistants for the East team praised Ingram for his versatility as a receiver and as a blocker. I m glad they gave me the chance said Ingram who is headed to American International College in Springfield 15 Mass. to play football in the fall. It s better to play in the game than not at all. I honestly didn t think I could be on the field but my parents said that if I play up to my potential I can play with anyone. Ingram was proud to be the lone Belleville player on the East squad. It was an honor to represent Belleville Ingram said. It s a small town and we don t get much recognition. It was great to play for Belleville one last time. I hope we proved that Belleville football is on the rise. Ingram will also get to play high school football one more time. On June 29 Ingram and Belleville teammate Shaq Richards will play in the National Underclassman Combine Senior All-Star Game at Palisades Park High School playing for a New Jersey All-Star team that will face New York. Joe Rivera was one of seven Bloomfield players selected to participate. It was a great 2012 season for the Bengals capped with a solid appearance in the NJSIAA Group IV playoffs winning two games. It was a good opportunity for me said Rivera who will play football at Monroe College in New Rochelle N.Y. in the fall. Not many get the opportunity to play. It was a great experience. There was nothing bad about it. It was a wonderful feeling to get to play with my Bloomfield teammates one last time. There s no better way to go out than with the guys I grew up with playing on the big stage. Rivera liked the camaraderie that the East players had including with the Nutley and Belleville players guys who were once fierce rivals. It was great to play with them Rivera said. The other guys were really cool and it was great to be on the same team. We put aside our differences and became friends. We just couldn t come away with a win. Other Bloomfield players on the East squad included Jaquan Boyd Isaiah Dockett Anthony Mastrimi David and Brian Hicks and Adam Wooten. Zac Dearwater an assistant at Bloomfield was one of the assistant coaches for the East so Bloomfield was more than well represented. It was the largest contingency from one school at the Robeson Classic in recent memory. Sal Gabriele of Nutley was also selected to play in the game. I was really surprised that I was picked but it was a great feeling to be out there Gabriele said. I was truly honored and lucky to be in the game. I actually dreamed of playing one last game and it happened playing in front of family and friends. Gabriele s football career ended with the game. He s headed to Richard Stockton College to play lacrosse. It was a happy feeling Gabriele said. I just wish we d won. Gabriele was also happy he shared the game with Merkle. We have been great friends for a long time Gabriele said. It was great to play one last game with him. Merkle now moves on to his next All-Star challenge. The North squad will go through three practice sessions on Friday and Saturday at Kean. I ve never done three-aday Merkle said. There s a first for everything. It s just all going to keep me in great shape.

Police said that after both boys were bitten on the thigh on upper buttocks they ran to Lincoln School where they were met by police and an ambulance that transported them to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment of what was characterized as non-life threatening injuries. It s unclear why the dog attacked the two boys police said. Police reported the incident to the Lyndhurst Health Department and then went to the dog owner s home where according to police the dog a mixed pit bull Labrador called Harley had returned after the biting incident. Police said the owner listed as Lorena Castillo 22 wasn t aware that the dog had left the rear yard to go after the boys. Police said that when they got to the house Castillo s sister Nataly 28 was with the dog. After reviewing Health Department records police issued summonses to Lorena Castillo charging her with having an unlicensed dog no dog tag and failing to provide proper dog vaccinations. Police also wrote out summonses to Nataly Castillo charging her with allowing a dog to run at large and allowing an injury caused by dog bite. Both are due in court on June 25. Meanwhile the pit bull has been placed in the hands of the county animal shelter for a 10-day quarantine. If the dog is determined to be dangerous police said the court could either compel the owner to surrender the dog possibly to be put down or to keep the dog in a specially-secured cage. Police said the same pit bull was alleged to have attacked an adult and a boy in two prior incidents both of which they said were reported to the Lyndhurst Health Department. On Sept. 14 2011 police said a 44-year-old Lyndhurst man told police he was attacked three days previously by a pit bull allegedly known to be Harley. The man told police he d just parked behind the stores at Ridge Road and Valley Brook Ave. and exited his car when the dog came running at him. As he tried to flee the man said he tripped and fell and was then bitten on the forearm. Police said they didn t know why the man waited several days before reporting the incident. On April 2 2010 police said that Harley ran out from the rear yard of the owner s home and bit an 8-year-old boy in the back of his left leg as he was walking with his sister on Valley Brook Ave. In this case the dog bite didn t break the boy s skin police said. Other incidents logged by Lyndhurst Police during the past few weeks included these June 10 At 12 28 a.m. the Lyndhurst owner of a commercial car service called police to report that someone had smashed the driver s side window of a 2009 Chevrolet Suburban while it was parked in the Courtyard by Marriott on Polito Ave. and removed a GPS a wireless credit card scanner and keys to other company vehicles.

Near the dragons was a table full of pipe-cleaner sculptures (a monkey with bananas an octopus catching shrimp in its tentacles a fierce gray wolf) created by third-graders. Among the dozens of other exhibits were animal collages pictures incorporating colorful beadwork others made with the caps from Magic Markers potholder looms with beads and string packing-foam animals self-portraits (some very Modiglianiesque) and butterfly sock puppets. Just inside the school s main entrance is another example of the children s talents this display more perma- 05 nent. Last year GreenParadiso had the students create paintings of endangered species. The finished works have been made into colorful tiles which were installed at the head of the front staircase last summer. The display is stunning. (Your correspondent thinks individual tiles should be reproduced and sold. Just a suggestion. I d buy a dozen or so.) This week now that the public has seen the art show all the students will. Since the children in various classrooms do not necessarily get to visit the other floors of their school they will be given guided tours-led by third-graders outfitted with official badges to identify their lofty status and wands with which to point out specific artworks. Perhaps the one titled The Crazy Cat That Can Fly or The Crazy Dinosaur That Barks. (There s that imagination again.) Dr. James P. Doran Harrison superintendent of schools offered accolades to Lincoln s students and staff. The art show project he told The Observer is reflective of everything that goes on in that school. It s a wonderful learning environment. In one of Lincoln s hallways there is a poster that reads The arts challenge us to think in innovative ways. Last week evidence of that was all around.
