June 26 2013 Vol CXXVI No. 5 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Accused o sexual assault NORTH ARLINGTON A 39-year-old North Arlington man has been arrested on sex assault and child endangerment charges for allegedly engaging in inappropriate sexual activity with two girls aged 12 and 13 Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli reported last week. The defendant has been identified as Richard Grossy who was arrested at his High St. home June 19 by officers from the North Arlington Police Department and the prosecutor s office s Special Victims Unit. Grossy is to be arraigned June 27 on two counts of sexual assault by sexual contact two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count each of aggravated criminal sexual contact and promoting obscene material Molinelli s office reported. Bail was set at 250 000 with no 10% option and Grossy was subsequently remanded to the Bergen County Jail. He has also been ordered to have no contact with the victims and to surrender his passport authorities said. Those victims according to the prosecutor were 12- and 13-year old female acquaintances. Authorities said the 12-yearold reported the incident to her mother who contacted the North Arlington police who see ASSAULT page The Corps of human kindness Photo by Karen Zautyk Dan Jacoby (l.) of Military & Veterans Affairs Bureau and World War II veteran Mike Paolino who got some volunteer help. By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent NUTLEY Big things can begin in a small way. As with a knock on the door. And a simple request for a little bit of help. Since early last year Public Affairs Commissioner Steven Rogers and his aides have personally knocked on approximately 700 doors to spread the word to veterans about his department s Military & Veterans Affairs Bureau and the services it offers. But in the course of their travels around town they discovered other needs. As we were walking door-to-door over the past several months numerous senior citizens and disabled residents would ask us to help them with minor things such as tightening a faucet or putting a frame up see CORPS page 13 Kearny gun range shot down By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY They won t be singing Home on the Range in Kearny after all. Last week Jonathan Giordano told The Observer that he and his brother Mark won t be converting two vacant warehouses they own on Arlington Ave. east of Schuyler Ave. into an indoor gun range as they d originally disclosed last summer. That plan is going to go away said Jon Giordano a local cabinetmaker. But as one businessman is retreating from one ambitious project another is going forward with a scaled-down version of the original at a nearby location with Schuyler Crossing a proposed residential development. Giordano said the range won t be built despite the Kearny Town Council having agreed in June 2012 to sanction a business development line of credit for up to 250 000 at 4% interest from the Kearny Enterprise Zone Development Corp. to repave much of the Arlington Ave. approach to the project site. Now however it looks like the brothers will have to forgo the loan he said.

That s what lies ahead for the Kearny public school system unless it takes steps to enact a middle school program Superintendent of Schools Frank Ferraro has warned the Kearny Board of Education. But a skeptical board seems unwilling to go there. And in fact it s a mystery where the board is going period given that at its most recent meeting on June 17 a majority vote appeared to have removed Bernadette McDonald as the board president although the board s counsel is questioning the vote s legality. As the meeting neared its end board member George King who preceded McDonald in the president s seat introduced a resolution to oust her. Here s how King explained his action last week to The Observer There was a lack of working relationship between the board president and the new superintendent (Ferraro) and there was obvious discord there. There was a lack of respect shown and I don t think it s healthy for the board or the district .... You re not getting things done. King who isn t seeking re-election in the November school balloting said he wrestled with [pitching McDonald s removal] all night and by the next day concluded that we had to have this discussion. I know that being the board president is a tough job because you re pulled in a lot of different positions King said but if you re not in a working relationship with the superintendent it s damaging to the district. Asked to cite instances where McDonald may have been hostile to Ferraro King said he couldn t give specifics. It s just been a culmination of things that have happened in the last six months he said. Although King said he didn t expect [the resolution] to take life it got a second from Dan Esteves who was appointed to the board in late January after Deborah Lowry was declared ineligible to take the seat to which she d been elected. Esteves will be running in November for a 2-year term. The resolution passed 6-3 with King Esteves Board Vice President John Leadbeater John Plaugic Robert O Malley and oddly enough McDonald voting in favor. James Doran Jr. Sebastian Viscuso and Cecilia Lindenfelser dissented. In a phone interview last week McDonald said she threw in her lot with the majority I guess because I was blindsided and seeing that a majority would carry the day I felt my vote didn t really mean anything. Asked if she understood King s point McDonald replied I have no clue. The superintendent is the one that brings forward proposals. All the board president does is run the table. Asked to assess Ferraro s performance so far McDonald said He s doing the best he can adding that the board is still waiting to hear from its business administrator recommendations on how it should implement 800 000 in budget cuts it authorized in April. Meanwhile McDonald said the board has been advised by its attorney Kenneth Lindenfelser that a board president can only be removed when he or she refuses to do their duty under the law apparently there s a whole list of duties under [N.J. Statute] 18A or if I resign. Since she hasn t been told that she s in violation of the law McDonald figures to remain as board president. At the June 17 meeting King joined by Plaugic and O Malley voted against approving and paying a 3 265 change order to Fallon & Pacheco the Bloomfield architects retained to perform environmental consulting work related to preparing a facility at 174 Midland Ave. to house the board s offices and two classrooms. King said he objected because the work [soil borings related to an off-site contaminated soil condition and lab testing of samples] had already been done before the change order was sent to us. It s a procedural problem. We didn t get an explanation. The information should come to us before the work is done. King and his allies were outvoted. Nearly lost in the commotion over King s surprise resolution was a recommendation by Ferraro for the appointment of Debra Sheard as assistant superintendent. Sheard an educator since 1994 is currently interim superintendent for the Califon school district in Hunterdon County. The board took no vote but after a closed-session discussion directed Lindenfelser to talk with Sheard about contract terms and get approval from the county superintendent s office. But the board did vote to hire Advanced Solar Products of Flemington to replace solar modules mounting system and related components for Franklin Elementary School gym damaged by Sandy at a cost of 147 512. Meanwhile there s no word on what if anything the board is doing about Ferraro s dire forecast and prescription for recovery that he pitched at a joint meeting of the board s curriculum and facilities committees in late May. Ferraro said he s had preliminary talks with the Rev. Joseph Mancini pastor of St. Stephen s Parish about the possibility of the board leasing space at the former parish school on Midland Ave. last occupied by Mater Dei Academy as a nearby annex to Lincoln School and as part of a middle school campus that he said could be phased in over the next two years. By going this route Ferraro said the district would eliminate overcrowding in most of its elementary schools improve the delivery of instruction to grades 6 through 8 and cut costs. Ferraro said the Board of Education must do something to change the current system otherwise it will be facing troubled fiscal times ahead very shortly. see RED SCARE page Mary Tortoreti President Robert Pezzolla General Manager ADVERTISING Natalie Rodriguez - Ulloa Classified GM Kim Pezzolla Sales Rosemary Bennett Sales EDITORIAL Jim Hague Sportswriter Melissa Bastek Copywriter Ron Leir Correspondent Karen Zautyk Correspondent ART DEPARTMENT Michelle Rybeck Graphic Designer 39 Seeley Ave. Kearny N.J. 07032 Phone 201-991-1600 Fax 201-991-8941 Deadlines Display Ads Thursday by 4PM Real Estate Thursday by 12PM Obituaries Monday by 10AM Classifieds Monday by 4PM 10 five day weather forecast Wednesday June 26 Thursday June 27 Friday June 28 Saturday June 29 Sunday June 30 Inside Editorial .............................06 Around Town ....................12 Real Estate ........................22 91 Isolated T-Storms 91 83 84 83 Isolated T-Storms Scattered T-Storms Scattered T-Storms Scattered T-Storms Business Directory ..........24 Obits ...................................25 Classifieds .........................26 Check back here for Upcoming Promos THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 2013 03 Riverside Park fields getting big facelift By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent NORTH ARLINGTON An ambitious upgrade of playing fields at Riverside County Park is proceeding on schedule Bergen County Parks Director Ron Kistner said last week. The long-heralded improvements will benefit the neighboring communities and scholastic athletic teams of Lyndhurst and North Arlington both of which enjoy the use of recreational space within the borders of the park as it extends along the banks of the Passaic River. For the North Arlington space the county is providing a new multi-purpose turf field to accommodate football and soccer with lights a 6-lane rubberized walking running track bleachers that can seat up to 900 one girls softball turf field with lights and one girls softball natural grass field. Between the multi-use field and the turf softball field the contractor will put up a prefab Photos by Ron Leir Turf softball field (l.) and turf football soccer field are rounding into shape. concrete building which will be raised out of the flood zone and which will house locker rooms bathrooms and a concession stand. And the walking paths outside the fields will be reconfigured. Applied Landscaping of Montville was retained as the general contractor on the North Arlington job which is expected to cost about 5.4 million. The multi-use field turf is down and next we re going to start paving the running track Kistner said. The track sub-base settles for 30 days and then the final rubber coating is applied. The turf softball field is pretty much done he added with the final coat of rubber pellets slated to have been laid down last week. The contractor is starting getting the poles ready for the lights. We ve met with Public Service [Electric & Gas] about running in the electrical service and that s going along well he said. The multi-use field figures to be ready for play by September and the prefab structure should be finished by sometime in the fall Kistner said. This week the contractor was expected to being work on the grass softball field. We ll be recommending a permit fee [to be charged for use of the fields] to help defer cost of maintenance Kistner said.

Observer readers residing in Essex or Bergen County had the chance to turn in guns at buybacks held in February and April respectively. The Essex program brought in 1 770 weapons Bergen 1 300. Those buybacks were among seven held to date as part of a state-led initiative. Among the total weapons turned in were more than 6 000 handguns which have since been destroyed Hoffman reported. According to his office prior buybacks also led to the collection and destruction of approximately 1 500 illegal guns -- firearms with unlawfully high magazine capacities or weapons that have been sawed-off or otherwise modified. It is troubling to contemplate just how much deadly firepower is out there in our communities on any given day just waiting to fall into the wrong hands Hoffman said at a press conference held in Elizabeth. That is why these gun buybacks are important the AG continued. The weapons we buy back are taken off the street -- once and for all -- and melted down.

In the Newark incident the victim was shot and wounded police said. The initial crime was reported at 3 a.m. June 21 when KPD Officers Mike Santucci and Thomas Floyd responded to the Jersey Truck Stop at Rts. 1 and 9 and Hackensack Ave. in South Kearny. The victim who had been pistol-whipped and suffered a head injury was a 48-year-old New York State truck driver who had stopped to refuel his vehicle. Police said a gray car pulled up next to him and three black males two armed with handguns exited struck the trucker with the butt of one gun pushed him back into his cab and took 185 from him They then fled over the Hackensack River bridge in the direction of Jersey City. Shortly after that they must have made a U-turn said KPD Chief John Dowie because Newark then reported a similar vehicle and similar suspects involved in the robbery of a trucker on Rt. 21. That victim was shot police said. Kearny Det. Michael Gonzalez is working the case with the Newark Police Department Robbery Squad.

That s a real tragedy not just because we ve been deprived of the talents of a wonderful actor but more importantly because the New Jersey native apparently gave more attention to learning his lines than to learning how to take care of himself. Weighing 275 pounds and given to binge eating and drinking according to published reports Gandolfini much like his character in The Sopranos wouldn t or couldn t restrain himself. And for that unwillingness or inability to adjust he paid the ultimate price suffering a fatal heart attack while on a trip with his 13-year-old son in Italy. Am I setting myself up as Gandolfini s judge Heck no I don t presume to hold myself above anyone particularly since I myself am no slim Jim (pardon the pun) for someone my size. And I am a victim of my own self-neglect having become a Type 2 diabetic some years ago undoubtedly from downing too many beers and sugar drinks. I control my blood sugar with meds. But Gandolfini s and his family s misfortune given his extraordinary popularity can serve as a valuable lifesaving lesson for all of us. The common sense approach to living life in a productive healthy manner is a virtue we can and should all strive to achieve. The ancient Greeks had it right moderation in all things. The nation s First Lady Michele Obama has taken the lead in raising awareness about the dangers of obesity in our population particularly among our youth and she is right on the money there. Too many of us are content to sit on our couches and watch the boob tube or fiddle with our electronic games when we could be in the gym or biking or taking a brisk walk exercising the mind and the body. Me During the summer I m a weekend warrior playing softball doubleheaders on Sundays in New York s Central Park with the Appalachian Mountain Club. But that s about it. I have a bike sitting collecting dust in a basement storage room and I hardly bother to ride it. There s a health club in the building where I live and I don t use it. So shame on me for failing to exploit the resources easily available to me. There is one area however where I am I think improving watching what I eat and when I eat it. I ve been trying to incorporate more salads and veggies into my diet. Even fresh fruit now and again. I m avoiding heavy stuff like pasta bread and potatoes. And I ve been getting better about not packing away my dinner meal late at night. It s still a work in progress. But unlike the mysterious scene that ended the last episode of The Sopranos I m striving for clarity as I move through my twilight years. I hope I can pull it off. I hope we all can.

They can never turn a domestic argument into a tragedy. And they can never claim the life of one of our brave police officers. Acting Hudson County Prosecutor Gaetano T. Gregory endorsing the buyback noted Every gun surrendered will provide one less opportunity for that gun to fall into the wrong hands and to be used in a violent crime. Also cooperating in the udson event are the state Division of Criminal Justice the Hudson County Sheriff s Office the State Police the Bayonne Jersey City and Union City police departments and the faith-based community. The vast majority of these weapons [the ones collected at earlier buybacks] have been operable and capable of either maiming someone or killing them Hoffman said. He added As we all recognize there are far too many guns on the street and too many people dying as a result of gun violence. I look forward to a day when gun violence is not as pervasive in our society and we can direct our attention to other critical public safety issues. But we aren t there yet and our campaign to stop the needless bloodshed goes on full force.

Thanks to security cameras and some good police work the suspect has been identified and will be turned over to Hudson County authorities as soon as Union County is through with him. It all began around 4 a.m. June 6 when Officers Tom Floyd and Chris Levchak were called to the Subway shop at Tullo s Truck Stop on the Lincoln Highway where they found the front door smashed and the culprit gone. According to the business owner 225 in cash had been stolen along with some food primarily bags of potato chips a trail of which had been left behind. Det. John Plaugic searched the crime scene gathered evidence and along with the owner reviewed security videos. Plaugic then utilized the KPD s Critical Reach system a law enforcement intelligence and information-sharing network and discovered that Elizabeth had a similar break-in also at a Subway and a suspect was in custody. Comparing security footage and the arrest photo of the alleged burglar the detective was able to identify 23-yearold Gustavo Figueroa as the suspect in the Kearny crime and on June 18 draw a warrant for his arrest on charges of burglary and theft. Figueroa who previously had no known address has one now the Union County Jail in Elizabeth. He will eventually be transferred to Hudson County on the Kearny charges police said. Other recent reports from the KPD blotter included the following June 15 At approximately 3 a.m. three young men apparently all Kearny residents were sitting on a bench on the 200 block of Kearny Ave. enjoying some food they had just purchased at Quick Chek when they were approached by an individual who asked them if they had any weed. Police said the three told him they did not nor did they want any. At that point the stranger displayed a handgun punched one of the youths in the face and relieved them of their credit cards driver s licenses and an iPhone. He then ran to a waiting vehicle which fled along the avenue. The suspect was described as a black male in his early 20s wearing a grey hoodie and dark pants. P.O. Dean Gasser was the initial responding officer and Dets. Michael Gonzalez and John Plaugic are conducting the follow-up. June 17 At 7 30 p.m. P.O. Jay Ward arrested a 16-year- old Kearny youth at Kearny and Midland Aves. after confirming the teen had an outstanding warrant from Hudson County for failure to appear in drug court police said. A search subsequent to the arrest reportedly revealed four small bottles containing suspected cocaine in his bookbag. The youth was processed at headquarters his parents were notified and he was transported to the Hudson County Juvenile Detention Center. Vice Detectives on patrol on the Belleville Pike at 10 p.m. noticed a parked car with its interior lights on put it under surveillance and saw the occupant apparently in the process of rolling a marijuana cigar. Arrested on charges of possession of a CDS and drug paraphernalia was David Emanuel 27 of Kearny who also received a summons for operating a motor vehicle while in possession of a CDS. June 18 At 5 45 p.m P.O. John Fabula and Sgt. Anthony Limite responding to a report of a fight on Tappan St. arrived to find that one of the combatants had already fled. The other identified as 18-year-old Harrison resident Christopher Henry was found to be highly intoxicated and carrying alcoholic beverages in his backpack police said. Henry was charged with underage possession of alcohol. At HQ due to the state of his intoxication EMS was summoned and transported him to Clara Maass Medical Center for treatment Police Chief John Dowie reported.

John Travelino in full uniform and wearing a traffic vest was on pedestriancrossing duty at 3 15p.m. on Kearny Ave. near Mandee s when Dowie said he noticed some interaction between a motorcycle and a red Honda travelling south on the avenue.

But for the 2014-2015 school year because revenues aren t keeping pace with expenses Ferraro projected that surplus would morph into a 2.4 mil- lion deficit meaning that the board would have to reduce its instructional payroll by 25 to 30 positions to balance its budget. And the following year Ferraro said the deficit would grow to 4.6 million which he added means we will be facing a reduction in force of as many as 60 teachers.... The Lincoln Campus provides the needed solution Ferraro asserted because it offers a more efficient way of providing education to all elementary school children with fewer staff needed. Ferraro proposed phasing in the plan with sixth-graders moving into the former Mater Dei building during the 20132014 school year and grades 7 and 8 occupying Lincoln School during the 2014-2015 school year. These steps he said among other things would ensure increased instructional time in math and language arts provide teachers common planning time and even out enrollment at other schools. But Doran said he didn t think there was sufficient lead time to work out terms for a lease of Mater Dei and get the first phase done in time for September opening. McDonald said We re spending too much on leases now. Let s get done with one project (Midland Ave.) before we start another. Lindenfelser added that maintenance [of Mater Dei] could potentially be real costly. This needs a lot more [analysis] before we even present it to the public. And Esteves said Spending money [to lease Mater Dei] is going to set us back further. Instead he suggested the board look at restructuring the district or cracking down on out-ofdistrict kids going to Kearny. Ferraro replied At least this starts the conversation....

KEARNY North Arlington plus Hasbrouck 7_26_13B Observer.indd 1 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 2013 11 GUN RANGE from 01 After Superstorm Sandy hit last October Mark Giordano a lawyer and financial consultant called the folks who d been lined up as prospective business partners to gauge whether they were still interested in backing the project. Turns out Jon Giordano several weren t because they were still struggling to recover from property damage caused by the massive storm. They d say Sandy wiped out my summer house and I didn t have insurance or I m still waiting to needed. Or perhaps an outdoor paintball facility could be rigged Giordano said. But a more realistic and practical plan at this point he said will likely be renting out the warehouse space as contractor condominiums with small offices in front and dry self-storage space in back for shops dealing in items like video cameras and electronics electrical and plumbing stock which can be accessed via loading docks. It s a good solution for a small business with inventory he said. Giordano is for residents. Ample on-site parking will be provided. The one-bedroom apartments would range from 711 to 899 square feet each while the two-bedroom units would be from 1 134 to 1 243 square feet each. Monthly rentals haven t yet been announced. Russo has already built a larger apartment complex in nearby Lyndhurst known as Meadows Crossing. Mayor Alberto Santos who sits on the Planning Board said the layout proposed for Kearny Crossing is more consistent with the kind of townhouse stock product we have in town as opposed to the more dense rental buildings like those being built in Harrison. It will be a positive addition to the area. Some unfinished business however still to be dealt with by the town Santos said is Russo s application for a PILOT (Payment In Lieu Of Taxes) agreement which the mayor said he planned to review this week with Town Administrator Michael Martello. We ve not done PILOTs before in Kearny except for senior [citizen] buildings San- tos said so I guess this would be a first for a multi-family residential building. Whether it s warranted will be based on projections for the cost of the project [with municipal services factored into the equation] and for the rate of return based on rental income. Typically a PILOT is based on a fixed percentage of the project s gross receipts. If a PILOT is granted the developer would pay the town 95% of the annual in lieu of tax fee and the county the remaining 5% while the local school system would get nothing.

An artist s conception of Schuyler Crossing from two different perspectives. collect my insurance.... For a project that by Giordano s revised estimate would ve required about 3 million to put together the brothers figured they needed 10 partners. If two or three bail out you re going to be short. You have to have it all or you don t even start. Another worry you have is what do you do with the guns and bullets if a storm [like Sandy] is coming in he added. So at the end of the day Giordano said the storm kind of killed it. The range had been targeted for use primarily by law enforcement professionals for qualification purposes but also by licensed gun owners from the general public. Another possibility Giordano said would be to develop a simulated shooting training facility where patrons would use a fake gun that shoots laser beams wired to an electrical source. Not any live fire he added. This would greatly reduce your liability and permits hoping he doesn t have to raise the building to comply with the new flood control regulations. At any rate the gun range is put on the back burner at least for now maybe until the state s economy straightens out Giordano said. For now Giordano s attention is focused on rebuilding his West Hudson Lumber & Millwork business where flooding damaged some of his equipment and slowed the pace of work. Since the storm he said my sales and amount of customers dropped crazily. Meanwhile on another front Carlstadt developer Ed Russo secured approvals from the Kearny Planning Board on June 12 to scale down his Schuyler Crossing project at Schuyler and Bergen Aves. from more than 200 apartments as originally designed to 138 units.

Other citizens who suddenly found themselves under medical care and temporarily lost their mobility needed help with walking their dogs. These may seem to be minor tasks to some but for someone who just had a back operation or who is suffering from an acute case of arthritis such a task becomes overwhelming. And thus was born the idea for Nutley Corps volunteers in service to Nutley residents. Plans for the Corps were announced last week and Rogers notes that right now the project is still in the embryonic stage. But he hopes to have the Corps up and running soon after Labor Day. As the official announcement noted Nutley Corps will offer interested individuals and local businesses the opportunity to be part of a network of citizen volunteers who are willing to use their skills talents expertise and life s experiences for the purpose of assisting fellow citizens who have temporary needs. We met one such citizen last week a veteran whose temporary need was one that helped inspire the Nutley Corps idea. Dan Jacoby assistant director of Military & Veterans Affairs took us to visit Mike Paolino a World War II vet 86 going on 87 who told us that when he got that knock on the door from Rogers and Jacoby he was having some issues 01 with his lawn. More specifically with his lawn mower. It was up on a shelf and he couldn t safely lower it. I asked them to take it down for me Paolino said. They did. And then they cut the grass He had neither asked for nor expected the yard work but it was hugely appreciated. Mike served his country Jacoby said. I m the new vet and as one vet to another I wanted to give something back. Because of Mike s scenario and others like it we realized that there were small needs that needed to be met Jacoby explained. Such as the Nutley senior whose garage needed to be cleaned out. And another recovering from an operation who needed temporary care for a pet. Helping could entail something as simple as changing a light bulb in a ceiling fixture a senior can no longer reach. Most of the Nutley Corps volunteers are expected to assist with relatively small projects but Rogers -- along with Robert De Bello who will oversee Nutley Corps -are also looking for vols with special skill sets. Carpenters electricians landscapers and firefighters and police officers with such skills will be needed for more complicated tasks. De Bello who retired from the Nutley Police Department in 1996 as detective sergeant will screen all the potential volunteers and then build a database of the personnel and the needs of those requesting help. We already have some fine volunteers working through a program called Seniors Helping Seniors Rogers explained in his press release. These volunteers have assisted many citizens with minor repairs through the former CARE Committee. They will continue working with us via Nutley Corps. We are now going to bring this program to another level. And it won t be just senior citizens and veterans who can get help the temporarily disabled can apply too. The commissioner noted that one significant change from the CARE program is that Nutley Corps volunteers will not become involved with health-care issues. There are laws that require strict confidentiality with regard to a person s health Rogers said. This confidentially will be maintained through our health- care professionals. Hence if a citizen has a health- care need the Nutley Health Department not the volunteer group will take of it. That includes providing transportation to a doctor s office or arranging for a nurse to visit a home. Those situa- tions will be within the Health Department s purview. The Nutley Corps is a great opportunity for retired citizens to get busy again said De Bello. But volunteers of all ages will be welcome and an invitation has gone out to Nutley High School students and youth involved in Scouting. Once De Bello has finished the screenings and compiled the list of volunteers a 30-minute orientation meeting will be scheduled. Any Nutley resident interested in volunteering is invited to call 973-284-4976 or email RDebello . Nutley has always been known for our spirit of volunteerism in this town De Bello told us. Nutley Corps should offer even more evidence of that.

To transform a front entrance and give it needed architectural interest sellers should look for replacement units with sidelights. This term refers to those narrow windows on one (or both) sides of the door opening. Sidelights offer the practical benefit of allowing more natural light into the foyer as well as imparting a more substantial overall look to the front of the home. To project an even grander look some sidelights come with decorative glazing options such as etched and beveled glass and leaded designs. New hardware helps punctuate the effect.

Recently Bill Schoener handed in his resignation letter to the powers-that-be in the Kearny Board of Education stepping down as the head boys basketball coach after just one season. The reason Schoener has taken a position as the new head coach at a Bergen County private school called Saddle River Day a school that has gone a long way to trying to become a better athletic institution than it was when it was known as Saddle River Country Day sounding more like a summer camp than a high school. Schoener gave no indication to Kearny athletic director John Millar that he was pursuing other coaching opportunities. Absolutely not Millar said. I had no indication whatsoever. It wasn t like Saddle River Day called me and said that they were pursuing my basketball coach. It caught me totally offguard. And it s left Millar with the difficult task of trying to find a suitable replacement in the middle of the summer when most programs are in the midst of summer camps summer leagues and summer training. It s not easy Millar said. The timing was not good at all. Even if we knew a little earlier the timing still wouldn t have been good. Schoener said that he wasn t actively pursuing other opportunities although it was learned that he did in fact interview for the opening at Harrison. I definitely wasn t actively looking Schoener said. I liked it in Kearny. I thought we were going in the right direction. But Schoener said that Saddle River Day called him in for an interview. I was one of 40 who were being interviewed Schoener said. When I got there I fell in love with the place.

They re all willing to work. We bring them in for practice two hours before a scheduled game and the kids are great. They re making it happen. The young team is doing well so the signs look promising for the future. It s real encouraging Bifulco said. We have three objectives in the summer. We want to build a winning attitude we want to get every kid playing baseball and staying involved and we want to give them as much baseball as possible under our supervision to keep them playing and bring that success back to the high school varsity level. We re on the right track. We re enjoying winning in the middle of the summer. Last weekend the Kearny see KEaRnY page 17 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 2013 VIEW from 15 why Schoener took the job was that the school offered him lower tuition for his daughter Alyssa who recently graduated grammar school. That was the clincher for me Schoener said. She s already been accepted there. It s like no place I ve ever seen. My other daughter is in the sixth grade and hopefully she ll go there as well. The school has great kids great facilities. Incredibly that s what Schoener said in August of 2012 when he decided to take the Kearny job. It s a school close to where I live (Rutherford) Schoener said last August. It s a larger school that has had success in other sports. They play in a better league a very good basketball league (the HCIAL). The facilities are great. It s everything you can want. Plus there are a lot of pieces in place. Schoener came to Kearny after two years at Queen of Peace and four years at Becton Regional. But I felt it was time to get a new challenge Schoener said last August. Kearny is a bigger program. We have 35 kids in the program. I like the numbers game. I like having more kids to work with. Schoener said that he took the job at Saddle River Day last Monday. A day later he went to meet with Millar. I sat down and he knew right away something was up Schoener said. I was so uncomfortable about talking about the situation but I knew I had to do it. I felt terrible about it. John was great to me.

Sometimes you have to make tough decisions and this was one. Schoener has still yet to meet with his former players. I still haven t been able to do that Schoener said. It s not going to be easy. I like those kids. I really do. I wasn t unhappy at Kearny. Schoener was asked if he felt he was letting the current Kearny players down by leaving after one year. Schoener guided the Kardinals to a 5-22 record last season. I guess that s the way you can look at it that I was there for only a year and then leave Schoener said. But this wasn t a basketball decision. This was a family decision. At the end of the day family came first. Schoener s assistant Jimmy Mahre has been doing the brunt of the summer work with the Kardinals coaching them in the Bloomfield summer league and taking them to the Garfield team camp. I hope Jimmy gets the job Schoener said. He s a great candidate. He ll do everything I did. He was a great assistant. He ll carry on and then some. I thought we were turning things around and in a place to get things going. There was an upside. We ve already started with Jimmy two nights a week Millar said. Some things are already in place. It s not like the kids are out there on their own. But who s to say that Mahre if he gets the job won t leave after a year There are never any guarantees Millar said. It s just the way it is. We have to move forward to find someone who is a good fit for us someone who will give us some years. That s what we re looking for. That s what Millar thought he had a year ago when he hired Schoener. He was wrong. I thought the kids responded well to Bill Millar said. I thought they enjoyed playing for him. I think that was evident both in practices and in games. I think they were looking forward to a new season with some new varsity players. We thought we were approaching an improved season. Millar said that he has already begun the process to hire a new basketball coach. This comes on the heels of having to hire a new football coach which the school did with Nick Edwards. I think we ll have our fair share of interested people Millar said. I think we ll be okay. Hopefully by the July Board meeting (July 22) we can make an appointment. At least we re going to try. Here s the last quote that comes from Schoener s interview here last August. I wouldn t be there if I didn t think we can win games Schoener said. I went to Becton and people said I couldn t win there. I loved my team in Becton and I am sure I ll love this team as well. It was time to move on. I m excited about this challenge. I m going to like playing the Hudson County schools. It s great to have a bigger program. Let s see what happens. What happened is that Schoener left before he could experience any changes and left Millar in the lurch scrambling once again to find a new boys basketball coach after less than a full year.

All things considered Bifulco has to be pleased with his summer action considering the Kardinals struggled during the regular high school varsity campaign. I m very happy Bifulco said. Things are going very well. All of the coaches are working at it. It s been a collective effort and I m happy with the results. It s all part of what we need to do.

We Think of Your Teeth as a Work of Art Each year more than 2.5 million eye injuries occur in this country resulting in 50 000 people losing at least a portion of their vision. The most common type of such injuries is scratching that occurs when a foreign body enters the eye and a person rubs the eye in an attempt to remove the irritation. Whether scratches to the outer portion of the eye (cornea) are caused by airborne debris or a poke in the eye the resultant scratch poses a potentially serious problem. Either fungal or bacterial infection can set in requiring immediate treatment. It is best to have scratches and other eye injuries assessed by the eye doctor. In the meantime it pays to wear protective eyewear. Accidents cause many kinds of eye injuries from corneal scratches to penetrating wounds. We know everything JUST SCRATCHING THE SURFACE about eyes and can help you to see to your fullest potential. We re located at 20 Park Avenue Lyndhurst where the decision for any treatment is based on the patient s visual needs and the expectation that visual function will be improved.

Our staff is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish. Dr. DeLuca has been selected as one of the best Doctors in America and also to The America s Top Ophthalmologists. P.S. When a piece of debris enters the eye resist the temptation to rub the eye. Instead try to flush the foreign object from the eye by positioning the head under running water.

For me the biggest thing about Matt was that I knew he was going to be successful in anything he does Prep head soccer coach Josh Jantas said. He was a vital cog to our program s success. Coming into his senior year he had a chance to do well for us but he exceeded all expectations we had. Halchak helped lead the Marauders to the championship game in the Hudson County Tournament.

There really are no words for it what Matt brought to the school brought to our program Decker said. He s one of the most incredible young men to ever come through Prep. I don t know of anyone who has done what he s done. He maintained such a high character in athletics and academics. He was also the type of teammate that you want to have. Decker called Halchak our unsung hero. He didn t play much to start and a lot of other kids might have folded up shop and quit Decker said. But Matt kept on fighting and working. He made a believer out of everyone including me. He really brought a lot to everyone at Prep. You look at him and everything he s accomplished someone of his size and stature and he was able to play at such a high level. It s toughness. You look at him and he s the definition of tough. He never once backed down. Decker marveled at the way Halchak was able to juggle the demands of being a three-sport athlete. In today s day and age coaches want their athletes to concentrate on just one sport and play that sport all year round. I don t know how he did it Decker said.

Every time he would come to us to lift he was coming straight from soccer and then go off to baseball. It s amazing. It shows the type of kid he is. I know how hard it is to juggle three sports. Decker said that Halchak is definitely a role model. We re already using him as an example Decker said. About what it s like to create a role and make the most of that role for himself. That s exactly what Matt did. Baseball is definitely Halchak s best sport. I never would have picked one sport over another before this year but it s definitely baseball Halchak said. I never thought I d play a college sport but I may try to walk on to my team in college now. I didn t do anything differently. I just had a good year. Halchak batted .412 in leading the Marauders to a 26-4 record the most wins in a single season in school history. While Halchak s teams might have lost in the county finals in soccer to Kearny and basketball to Hudson Catholic the Marauders won the county crown in baseball. Matt Halchak is aces in my eyes Prep head baseball coach Pat Laguerre said. He s a coach s dream. He has one speed fast. Everything he does is fast. Some others may learn to slow down but not Matt. I have nothing but great things to say about him. That s why he was one of our captains. He s a born leader. He s as competitive as they come and he just doesn t stop. Laguerre continued to sing his captain s praises. What you have here is something pretty special and doesn t come along every day Laguerre said. It s really refreshing to see a kid who is a throwback and doesn t shy away from competition. He wants to be the best. I literally go after the younger kids and tell them to watch Matt. He should be rubbing off on them because he does it all the right way. Halchak is headed to Georgetown to perhaps have a double major in government and economics. Law school is a goal down the road. I had a very blessed senior year Halchak said. I got to play in three county championship games. I played in six over two years. You just can t believe things like that can happen. It s pretty cool. I played all three sports all year and I was once at the bottom of the totem pole. It was tough but it all paid off. It was one hell of a ride.

Dear Dr. E My teeth are slightly crooked can they be straightened without braces Well yes and no. It depends on a few factors but more commonly now patients with minor tooth displacement can be treated with invisible braces . Invisible braces are comparable to wearing a mouth guard a very thin mouth guard. The Invisalign Company has a program that involves using only 5 or 10 aligners. These aligners will have your teeth straight in as little as 10 to 20 weeks. This is not only a time saver but a money saver when compared to the costs of traditional braces. Some dentists and orthodontists are trained in Invisalign and you can find out if there is some one in your area by visiting the Invisalign website. The best part aside from not having to wear braces is that you can actually see an animated version of how your teeth are going to move and the end result. Your dentist will take full mouth impressions and ship them to Invisalign where they create an animated movie for your dentist and you to view. They will even forward the movie to your email for your personal viewing pleasure. The entire process is quick and painless whether you need a small amount of moment or a large amount. But for those cases where you need a lot of tooth movement it normally takes about 30-60 weeks for the aligners to do their job invisibly. My wife has had her teeth re-aligned with Invisalign due to the shifting that occurred after having worn braces as a teen-ager but never wearing her retainer And she and I are happy with the results so I think that you will be happy with your results too Wishing you and yours a great week Attention Medicare Diabetic patients Call Midtown Pharmacy TODAY for your Diabetic supplies.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 2013 21 Multi-car smashup in Harrison under review An out-of-town motorist struck five parked cars including one owned by a Harrison lawmaker while driving through Harrison on Sunday June 16 police reported. And police said a sixth vehicle whose driver was trying to get out of the way was hit by one the struck parked cars sent spinning out across the street. As of last week no charges had been filed against the errant driver but police said the accident is still under investigation. Police said the episode began shortly after 3 30 p.m. when Manuel Calle Calle 30 of Newark was driving a 1999 Dodge Durango west on Harrison Ave. when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a 2011 Toyota registered to a Kearny resident and a 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis owned by Harrison Councilman Larry Bennett. The driver told police his vehicle experienced a mechanical failure causing it to veer off. After that initial crash police said the driver slammed on his brake trying to stop but nonetheless continued forward into the eastbound lane and hit a 2003 Ford Explorer a 2008 Maserati a 2010 Mitsubishi Galant and a 2010 Honda CRV all registered to Harrison residents. Police said the Honda was propelled across Harrison Ave. about 30 feet into the left front side of a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor traveling west on Harrison Ave. whose driver a Harrison woman seeing the accident had pulled over to the right side of the avenue to avoid being hit.

Please visit and like the Bergen County Animal Shelter. 30 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 2013 RIVERSIDE from 03 the Public Library to learn more about the project. One longtime observer of athletic events held at the park noted that Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011 and Sandy in October 2012 caused massive flooding of the area and the storms brought up a lot of debris onto the fields. Also for the last several years the old playing fields were compromised by goose droppings. The geese don t like artificial turf surfaces so the new turf fields should be safer and easier to play on he said. Having lights at the fields will mean that for the first time games can be played at night which should allow softball leagues to extend their seasons possibly into October the observer said. North Arlington High School Athletic Director Dave Hutchinson couldn t be reached at press time but Ed Abromaitis athletic director for Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington said the school will probably use the multi-purpose field for boys and girls soccer in the fall as soon as [the county] gives us the okay. We hope to use one of their softball fields as well. We don t know yet whether we ll use the multipurpose field for football Abromaitis said. The interscholastic league constitution governing gridiron play for Queen of Peace calls for a shelter locker room facility for the two opposing teams to be provided and it appears that condition will be satisfied by the county. Queen of Peace has been playing its home football games at Harrison High School s field. Based on what Abromaitis has heard the county will be collecting a flat fee of 150 for either a football or soccer practice or a game or 225 for a night game. We re hoping to rent but naturally if you practiceevery day [Monday to Friday] you re looking at like 800. We can t afford that. Using the facility for nine home games in a 16game season schedule might be acceptable but the fee for officials would also have to be factored in he said. For baseball Abromaitis said we re hoping to use Breslin Field in Lyndhurst. At Breslin Field the county has installed a new turf baseball diamond with new lighting along with two prefab concrete buildings one at the field that s two levels with a press box upstairs and concessions and bathrooms below the other outside the right field area which contains bathrooms. Both are elevated out of the flood zone Kistner said. Turco Golf of Washington Township in Warren County was the low bidder on the job with a price of 2.4 million. THEME INDEPENDENCE DAY ACROSS 1.
