July 3 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXVI No. 6 HAPPY 4TH OF JULY COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY 5K run to boost KHS clubs By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY Kearny High School is marshaling all its resources for a blockbuster event to coincide with the start of the fall term. It s billed as the first annual Kearny 5K Charity Run Walk open to students and the public slated for Saturday Sept. 7 three days after classes resume for the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year. Proceeds from the run will go to benefit the extra-curricular programs at Kearny High School according to a fact sheet provided Mayor Alberto Santos and the Town Council last week. Those extra-curricular programs in which an estimated one of every five KHS s approximately 1 700 students participate receive no money from the Board of Education nor for the most part do faculty and or parental advisors who serve as volunteers said KHS Vice Principal John Millar who oversees athletics activities. Students and parents organize periodic canning and other types of fundraising on nights and weekends to support the extra-curriculars Millar said. With the run he added KHS is putting a program in place so that students and parents spend less time on fundraising see 5K RUN page Full speed ahead for KFD KEARNY By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent Photos by Karen Zautyk From left Capt. Dennis Hyde Capt. Mike Livolsi Capt. Joseph Mastandrea and Firefighters Dave Auerbach and Jed Schappert he other afternoon driving past the Kearny Fire Department headquarters on Midland Ave. we saw parked outside a large army troop truck complete with camouflage. What s that for we asked. And a friend answered Maybe they re getting ready for an attack. After having also seen Marine 3 the latest addition to the KFD firefighting arsenal we wondered. It s a sleek swift turbo-charged vessel with a landing-craft portal that reminds one of the Higgins Boats that poured soldiers onto the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. It even has a gun on the bow. But not to worry. This gun shoots onlywater at a rate of 1 250 gallons per minute. It see FIREBOAT page T 08 Mold disables Silver Lake firehouse BELLEVILLE The township s Silver Lake Firehouse on Franklin St. has been shuttered as an unsafe structure. Councilman Michael Nicosia said the building was declared a health hazard after the discovery that it s been infested with mold apparently the result of a persistently leaky roof. We ve tried to patch it but the moisture built up to the point where mold developed Nicosia said. Fire Capt. Scott Wentworth said the township is in the process of having an engineering study done to determine how much of the problem is structural and whether the building can be rehabilitated. Since the firehouse s closure several weeks ago its engine company three firefighters per shift has been relocated about a mile away to Fire Headquarters at 275 Franklin Ave. Wentworth said. From that location he said the company continues to respond to fires in the Silver Lake district. There are also building code issues associated with the Silver Lake Firehouse Nicosia noted. The [pumper] truck barely fits in the firehouse we probably need new steps up to the second floor quarters and we probably have to relocate the kitchen he said. see FIREHOUSE page 201-991-1300 KEARNY OFFICE 213 Kearny Ave Kearny New Jersey C21Semiaokearny Century21.com 30 201-460-8000 LYNDHURST OFFICE Semiao & Associates www.Century21Semiao.com 761 Ridge Road Lyndhurst New Jersey Get CENTURY 21 Real Estate Mobile App. Visit http 87778.mobi c21 11 C21Semiao Century21.com TO SEECENTURY 21 HAS GONE MOBILE OUR AD THIS WEEK PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 24 23 02 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 10 straight years as Elks lodge leader By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent West Hudson Publishing Company s Fastest Growing Free Weekly Newspaper Established 1887 Family Owned & Operated HARRISON e s probably the smallest guy in the outfit but his buddies as much as they may kid him acknowledge that he s got a huge heart. And that s probably why they ve chosen Larry Bennett as exalted ruler of the Harrison East Newark Elks Lodge 2326 each year for the past decade a significant milestone in the annals of the organization. Ten years is a record for the Elks North Central District Bennett noted. The district encompasses lodges in Harrison East Newark Kearny North Arlington Lyndhurst Belleville Newark Bloomfield Cedar Grove Orange West Orange and South Orange. He s going to keep doing it till he gets it right quipped 35-year lodge member Larry Park a trustee and past exalted ruler. Among the 117 lodges around the state Bennett ranks No. 2 in consecutive years of service in the top spot. Another guy has 12 years he said. Ironically compared to Park and some other longtime lodge brothers Bennett who also serves the community as a member of the Town Council and Housing Authority Board of Commissioners might be considered a rookie having come aboard in 2000. Rich Rykowski and James Geddes both past exalted rulers and trustees approached me and asked me to help the Elks reorganize Bennett said. Membership was slipping and the lodge was becoming stagnant it needed a big push. We put together a team and it just H Mary Tortoreti President Robert Pezzolla General Manager XXXXXXXXX ADVERTISING Natalie Rodriguez - Ulloa Classified Asst.to 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 Trustee Larry Park (l.) 20-year lodge member John Lednovich (c.) and Exalted Ruler Larry Bennett display an archival photo of the Jolly Corks a group of unemployed New York actors who were the progenitors for today s Elks. 39 Seeley Ave. Kearny N.J. 07032 Phone 201-991-1600 Fax 201-991-8941 www.theobserver.com Deadlines Display Ads Thursday by 4PM Real Estate Thursday by 12PM Obituaries Monday by 10AM Classifieds Monday by 4PM took off. Now a largely blue collar membership exceeds 350 including retirees now living in Florida but also others coming in from Kearny North Arlington and Lyndhurst and the lodge collecting per-member dues of 42 a year has a healthy treasury. And all are involved in one way or another Bennett said with the Elks charitable efforts in West Hudson and supporting Elks-sponsored project around the state. Perhaps the biggest of those endeavors is the New Jersey State Elks Association s Camp Moore for disabled children which operates in Haskell a rural part of Passaic County. Six-hundred kids go every year Bennett said. It costs 900 000 a year to run the camp. To send a kid to camp for one week it costs 500 and that cost is underwritten by individual Elks lodges fundraising activities. We send four to six kids each year Bennett said. Veterans are another focusgroup for the Elks. Lodge members sponsor picnics holiday visitations and clothing drives for ex-servicemen and servicewomen at V.A. hospitals in East Orange and Lyons. We also take a group of those veterans to Bears Stadium in Newark for a [baseball] game during the summer Bennett said. The Elks also pitch in to help with financial support for Camp Fatima of New Jersey a non-profit non-sectarian summer camp for developmentally disabled youngsters and adults based in Lebanon in Hunterdon County. Other beneficiaries of the Elks largesse include a host of local organizations Harrison Cancer League Harrison Little League Harrison Pop Warner and High School Football Harrison Travel Baseball Harrison Cheerleaders Lady Blue Thistle Soccer Team Harrison Girl Scouts Harrison Lions Club gala PBA Torch Run East Newark Volunteer Fire Department (new equipment) and college scholarships cosponsored by the PTOs. But the lodge also helps in other ways. For example Bennett said When Sandy hit we had food for the workers who were dealing with the flooding. We sent trays of food to the Senior Center for people evacuated from their homes. If a person has cancer and needs help paying bills we help. In the past year we raised money for a family who couldn t afford to pay for their son s burial. All the money we raise here goes to charitable causes Bennett said. And we re all volunteers here no one gets paid. And this needs to continue because a lot of fraternal orders today are folding up. In a sense we re really the center of this community. The lodge meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at its hall 406-408 Harrison Ave. New members are welcome. five day weather forecast Wednesday July 3 Thursday July 4 Friday July 5 Saturday July 6 Sunday July7 Inside Editorial .............................06 Around Town ....................13 Real Estate ........................22 87 89 89 89 89 Scattered T-Storms Scattered T-Storms Isolated T-Storms Partly Cloudy Isolated T-Storms Obits ...................................25 Classifieds .........................26 Business Directory .... 30 31 Check back here for Upcoming Promos THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 03 Relief in sight for land-locked residents By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent BELLEVILLE t may be hard to believe now but working farms once prevailed over a chunk of Belleville s Second Ward including the area behind the old SoHo hospital building at Franklin and Belleville Aves. Dee Hank a 40-year township resident says the building on Carpenter St. she has occupied since 1960 was the last parcel of former farmland to be filled in by residential development between 1944 and 1947. Altogether she said there were 24 four-family buildings for a total of 96 dwelling units. Buyers typically acquired one or more of those buildings part of which they d occupy and partly rent out. Carpenter St. then was just a country road said Hank who has researched the area s history. Back in 1947 there were no cars so the builder didn t provide parking. In those days most people living I there worked in the old [Essex County] Isolation Hospital Hank added so they had an easy walk to their jobs. But things began to change after the hospital having gone through permutations as a polio treatment center and geriatrics facility was occupied by the Garden State Cancer Research clinic which took over four floors in the hospital s east wing but ultimately defaulted on a 5 million loan from the Essex County Improvement Authority and vacated the building in July 2011 leaving it open to trespassers who vandalized the property. By that time Hank said many of the folks who d been living in the Carpenter St. Photos by Ron Leir apartment cluster had retired Clockwise from top Parking restrictions on Carpenter St. and on tightlyfrom their hospital jobs or moved or died and the people packed cul de sacs -- like the one resident Jose Fernandez striped -- prompted resident Dee Hank to push for relief by getting the county to widen the street. who took over those apartments tended to have multiple cars. And for the past 10 years or so parking on Carpenter St. a 20-foot-wide one-way block or on two small circles with spaces earmarked for own- ers tenants started becoming problematic said Hank a retiree from Prudential Ins. Co. who commuted to work by bus for 25 years. At any rate each of the circles can accommodate 13 to 14 cars hardly enough to satisfy the demand she said. By 8 o clock at night every inch of available space is taken Hank said. We ve got people parking on the side streets Berkeley Smallwood [Aves.] wherever they can find a space and then hoofing it back here. A lot of the women are scared about having to walk alone at night. It s bad news. One of Hank s neighbors Jose Hernandez a self-employed plumber who moved here from Newark s North Ward in 1994 said We ve lost see PARKING page 22 Real Estate Presented by Jarlynn Hyde Broker Owner Let s Talk Single-family home buyers looking to make large purchases should familiarize themselves with so-called jumbo loans. These loans exceed the limits set by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac for conventional conforming loans. Because jumbo loans are larger than the average price of a home and carry more risk lenders offering jumbo loans are likely to charge a higher interest rate and more closely scrutinize the finances of those seeking mortgages that exceed 417 000 (the conforming loan limit in most parts of the country). Thus buyers applying for jumbo loans should be prepared for most lenders to re- BIG DEAL FOR BUYERS quire a minimum 720 FICO score.

The detectives stopped the vehicle at Bergen Ave. and Ivy St. and the couple admitted they were involved in a heated argument. [Editor s note Over what was not reported to your curious correspondent drat.] It was reported however that the passenger Vanessa Wong 23 of Effort Pa. was found to be wanted on an outstanding warrant out of Annandale N.J. As Wong was exiting the car police said she was observed attempting to conceal something between the seats. Det. Traynor retrieved the object which was found to be a plastic bag allegedly containing 90 glassine folds of suspected heroin 60 of which were stamped After-Earth and 30 of which were stamped Steel Monkey. Both Wong and the driver 25-year-old Jason Frey also of Effort were arrested and charged with possession of heroin possession with intent to distribute and intent to istribute in a school zone and a park zone. Bail was set at 10 000 for each defendant. Other recent reports from the Kearny Police Department blotter included the following June 21 Officers John Fabula and Luis Moran were on patrol in South Kearny at 4 30 p.m. when they observed a white Dodge pick-up truck disregard a red light while speeding northbound on Rt. 1&9 at Hackensack Ave. The officers pursued the truck and were finally able to bring it to a stop on Rt. 440 in Jersey City. On approaching the vehicle police said Fabula observed a can of Budweiser beer in the center console along with a small plastic bag containing a white powdery substance later determined to be heroin. The driver 57-year-old Rahway resident Wesley Newton was slumped in his seat and his speech was slow and slurred police said. After administering roadside sobriety tests Fabula placed him under arrest and transported him to headquarters where more extensive testing was completed. Newton was charged criminally with possession of heroin and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was also given motor vehicle summonses for DWI operating a vehicle while in possession of a CDS failing to obey a traffic signal and reckless driving. June 22 At 8 15 p.m. Officer Sean Kelly responded to the 500 block of Schuyler Ave. on a report of a suspicious individual in a backyard. After searching the area on foot Kelly came upon and detained 33-year-old Newark resident Nuno Rodrigues who reportedly gave the officer conflicting accounts as to why he was in the area. A check with the homeowner on whose property Rodrigues was seen told the officers he had not been given permission to be there police said. Rodrigues was placed under arrest for defiant trespass and was also found to be in contempt of a Hudson County court order police said.

Police Capt. Tom Strumolo said the contractor was renovating a recently vacated apartment in the boarding home just off Franklin Ave. shortly before noon and was ripping down sheetrock when he came across a grenade wedged between the sheetrock and a shaft in a wall. Because of the way it was positioned you couldn t tell if it was live or not Strumolo said. So the contractor immediately phoned police and when officers arrived showed them a photo of the device that he d taken with his cellular phone. Police called for the Essex County Bomb Squad who sent two technicians in to check out the explosive. At the same time officers evacuated seven tenants from the rooming house. Officers checked on neighboring residences but no one was home police said. It was deemed inert Strumolo said. The bottom was drilled out but you couldn t tell immediately looking at it. It must have been there for years somebody might have dropped it in the shaft. After determining the device didn t pose a danger the technicians removed it for disposal Strumolo said. There will be no investigation to determine where the grenade came from he said. Here are other incidents logged by Nutley P.D. during the past week June 28 A traffic stop on Rt. 21 at 1 19 a.m. resulted in the arrest of Leon Lowery 36 of North Brunswick who was ticketed on a speeding charge.

He was turned over to the custody of Irvington P.D. June 26 A patron at the Nutley Public Library called police at 11 24 a.m. to report a theft.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 The foundations of our nation Tomorrow being the Glorious Fourth I decided to give myself a little refresher course in American history and wouldn t you know I learned something I never knew before. On the day in 1776 when the Continental Congress approved (this is the original wording and capitalization) The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America it apparently marked the first time the former British colonies officially referred to themselves as states. If I m wrong about that would some historian please correct me In any case I wanted Observer readers to get a little refresher course of their own. We all (I hope) know bits of the introduction to the Declaration of Independence but this is a suitable occasion on which to repeat the initial sentences which set the stage for the birth of a nation When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands [I always thought it was bonds didn t you ] which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature s God entitle them a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. . . . I would also like to offer for your consideration the Bill of Rights the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution. More than one of these has served as a flashpoint in recent national debates but I did wonder how familiar those on the sidelines are with the precise wording. TV s talking heads offer scraps and phrases but rarely enlighten the public by reading the entire amendment at the heart of an argument. So here for your edification is what they say in their original form. Take into consideration such things as subordinate clauses and (18th century) punctuation and you can get a bit of feel for what it must be like to be a Supreme Court justice Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Amendment II A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. Amendment III No Soldier shall in time of peace be quartered in any house without the consent of the Owner nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law. on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury except in cases arising in the land or naval forces or in the Militia when in actual service in time of War or public danger nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself nor be deprived of life liberty or property without due process of law nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation. be preserved and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law. Amendment VIII Excessive bail shall not be required nor excessive fines imposed nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. Amendment IX The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. Amendment X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively or to the people. Reading all this over I am struck by one thing These truly are living documents as relevant today (except perhaps that 20 reference) as to when they were written. Therein lies the genius of our Founding Fathers. Please give a little thought to and thanks for that tomorrow night when our skies are ablaze with fireworks.

The Hotline s advice is to grill them longer and hotter. Of course they don t Beware of barbecued bugs bother to mention that the high-temperature grilling that kills the bugs also forms lots of cancer-causing compounds. Luckily a bunch of enterprising U.S. food manufacturers and processors have met this challenge head-on by developing a great variety of healthful delicious and convenient veggie burgers and soy dogs. These delicious plant-based foods don t harbor nasty pathogens or cancer-causing compounds. They don t even carry cholesterol saturated fats drugs or pesticides. And they are waiting for us in the frozen food section of our supermarket. This 4th of July offers a great opportunity to declare our independence from the meat industry and to share wholesome veggie burgers and soy dogs with our family and friends. Cory Baker Kearny THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 07 New youth director bonding with kids Kids are Terry M. Iavarone s reason for being. During the school year Iavarone teaches history in the Bloomfield public school system in the summer he runs the youth recreation program for North Arlington. Last month the Borough Council appointed Iavarone as the new Youth Center director replacing Michael Kraft who s moving on to a career in law enforcement after three years in the borough slot. Iavarone 24 has worked as a counselor for the Youth Center since 2005 and has been lead counselor for the last five years. He s got a B.A. in history education from Montclair State University. We are happy to have Terry on board to continue with the Youth Center programs for the remainder of the year Mayor Peter Massa said. I am confident that given his experience in dealing with students in school and at the Youth Center he will continue to provide quality services for the young people of this community and their parents. Massa extended thanks to Kraft. He has served the community well at the Youth Center he said. As the new youth leader Iavarone is currently presiding over an eight-week summer program for North Arlington kids ages four to 10 but eventually he ll be overseeing programs year-round. In the meantime summer activities indoors and outdoors are being offered Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day with a staff of 14 counselors on a rotating schedule. We ll have maybe eight on any given day Iavarone said. Every week we ll have themed programs Iavarone said like Chirstmas in July arts and crafts making goodies so that kids have something different every week. Still in the program s initial stages daily attendance has been averaging about 40 kids per week but Iavarone figures that number will be rising as the program advances. There s a 40 a week registration fee to cover expenses associated with the program he said. I want to expand the program as much as possible to maximize participation by our kids he added. To that end Iavarone said he s exploring the possibility of recruiting a counselor trained to work with special needs youngsters. at the North Arlington BowlO-Drome on Schuyler Ave. or watching movies. Meanwhile in another recreation-related development the borough announced that at its last meeting the governing body authorized spending 9 000 for the first phase of improvements to Alan Park. Council President Al Granelli said the funding will pay for planning and design of the parking area to increase parking capacity and safety at the site. This is the start of an investment that we need to Photo by Ron Leir make in Alan Park he said.

While all members of the department will receive what s called Swift Water Awareness training the boat will be primarily manned by members of Engine 3 headquartered on Midland Ave. and Engine 1 on Davis Ave. KFD Capt Michael Livolsi explained Right now we re testing the boat and developing general operating guidelines and conducting training. Capt. Joseph Mastandrea who is in overall charge of the training said the goal is to have it completed and the boat fully in service within a few months. Last week we were privileged to accompany Mastandrea Livolsi (the chief pilot) Capt. Dennis Hyde and Firefighters Dave Auerbach and Jed Schappert on a train- ing trip up the Passaic River from the North Arlington Fire Department boat launch off River Road north to Wallington. We would have gone farther except our path was blocked by a Wallington bridge (I do not know its name) that offered absolutely no overhead clearance and from the looks of the bridge mechanism (rusted gears) likely had not been opened since the Industrial Revolution. Besides we learned to get certain Passaic River bridges opened for watercraft one must give advance notice -- four hours for the Bellville Pike bridge six hours for the Lyndhurst bridge.

Rodgers Blvd Harrison NJ THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 09 Highlights from the Lyndhurst PD blotter June 25 A Lyndhurst motorist was charged with careless driving failure to keep right and DWI after a traffic incident that police said unfolded at 1 25 a.m. on Lake Ave. Police said a patrol unit westbound on Lake had to swerve to avoid being hit by an eastbound vehicle. The officer reversed direction pulled over the errant driver Rogerio Molinaro 32 and issued him the three motor vehicle summonses. June 23 A man with an apparent thirst for expensive booze was thwarted in an effort to swipe some from a local shop. Police said a man concealing his face with a bandana entered Lyndhurst Liquors on Valley Brook Ave. at 3 36 p.m. grabbed a bottle of peach vodka valued at nearly 58 and ran off with it. Police said the store owner followed the man to New Jersey Ave. where officers responded and collared Endeavor Warrick 19 of Lyndhurst and seized the bottle of alcohol. Warrick was charged with shoplifting and released pending a court hearing. After noting that a motor vehicle traveling in the area of Riverside and Valley Brook Aves. at 2 06 a.m. had an expired inspection decal police pulled over the car operated by Philip Cruz 22 of Kearny and issued him a summons for the expired inspection. They also ticketed him on charges of suspended driver s license and DWI. June 19 Police said a tour bus driver drove himself into trouble by reportedly traveling at an excessive rate of speed at 9 46 p.m. west on Valley Brook Ave. near Riverside Ave. where the roadway had been undergoing milling and paving work. Police Chief James O Connor who happened to be in the area pulled over the driver Donovan Fuller 62 of Lodi who police said became hostile and argumentative. Fuller who works for Saddle River Tours was given summonses charging him with careless driving and disorderly conduct. Police said the bus was carrying no passengers. June 18 At 3 29 p.m. police came upon a vehicle stopped in the middle of the intersection of Valley Brook and Riverside Aves. and the driver passed out. The driver John Mancini 57 of Elizabeth told police he was taking a prescription drug. Mancini was issued a summons charging him with DUI and was taken to Hackensack University Hospital for examination. His vehicle was towed. A Lyndhurst man making an appearance in Municipal Court at 9 55 a.m. was issued a summons charging him with being under the influence of prescription drugs. Keith Parasmo 23 was taken to Bergen Regional Hospital Paramus for examination.

There is a humorous anecdote regarding this theory Maxwell one of the greatest scientists in history was a firm believer in God. His fellow scientist and close friend did not believe there was a God. He would argue that the world was created by itself. One day Maxwell made a model of the solar system and put it in motion in his study room. His friend came to meet him and on seeing the model he exclaimed This is amazing Who made it Nobody made it Maxwell replied. I was working on my table when I heard an explosion. I turned around and saw this had been created. How ridiculous his friend retorted. How can this be created by an explosion Someone must have definitely made it. Maxwell said My friend you are not willing to believe that a little model of the solar system could be created by itself. And you want me to believe that the real universe consisting of many such solar systems has come into existence without a Creator. If it is logical to believe that someone has created this model it is also commonsensical to conclude that the real world must have a Creator too. This is exactly how the Vedas describe God Yato va imani bhutani jayante... ( Taittiriya Upanishad 3.1.1 ) God is he who has created this world God is he within whom the entire world exists God is he within whom the whole world will merge at the time of annihilation. The Vednt Darhan gives the definition of God in the same manner. It begins by stating in the first aphorism Athato brahma jigyasa (Vednt Darhan 1.1.1) Now try to know God. However on reading the aphorism the natural question arises who is God This is answered in the second aphorism of the Vednt Darhan Janmadyasya yatah (Vednt Darhan 1.1.2) God is he who has created this world. Different religions across the globe advocate their respective concepts of Almighty God and use different names to worship. The Hindus worship Bhagavan the Christians worship Christ the Muslims worship Allah the Jews worship Yahweh the Parsis worship Ahura Mazda the Jains worship Alakh Niranjan the Sikhs worship Ikomkar and the Buddhists worship Shunya. So a natural question arises that are they all different Gods Very often religious practitioners develop intense enmity with each other on the basis of the God they worship. History is witness to some of the biggest battles fought in the name of religion. The Vedic scriptures however give us a broader vision. see SWAMI page www.romaristorantenj.com 20 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 11 FIREHOUSE from About two months ago Nicosia said the township governing body authorized a Request For Proposals for a design-build job on the building.

Nicosia said the firehouse is still being used as a public polling place for elections although he said it s possible that the township may opt to switch the location to the newly rebuilt Friendly House awaiting site work as the final touch for the upcoming special election in October for U.S. Senate. About three years ago the township administration had proposed building a new Silver Lake firehouse behind a self-storage facility near the NJ Transit Light Rail stop as part of a capital improvements bond issue after NJ Transit 01 Photos by Ron Leir The township Construction Office closed the Silver Lake firehouse after finding mold growing inside. had offered to put up 600 000 toward the construction but that plan was dropped after Second Ward Councilman Steven Rovell and Nicosia got enough residents to sign a petition opposing the bond.

Hoffman and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs offer a reminder Under New Jersey s Fireworks Regulation Law it is unlawful to sell offer for sale possess or use fireworks anywhere in the state without a valid permit issued by a municipality for a public fireworks display. A valid permit must name one person who shall be authorized to purchase or otherwise order and receive delivery of any fireworks. After such permit shall have been granted sales possession and use of fireworks for such display shall be lawful for that purpose only. Any person who sells offers or exposes for sale or possesses with intent to sell any fireworks is guilty of a crime of the fourth degree. Any person who purchases uses discharges causes to be discharged ignites fires or otherwise sets in action or possesses any fireworks without the required permit is guilty of a disorderly persons offense. In its most recent Fireworks Annual Report the Consumer Product Safety Commission noted that 60% of all fireworks injuries occurred within the 30 days surrounding the Fourth of July holiday. More than half involved burns to the hands head and face. More than 5 000 persons were treated in hospital emergency rooms due to fireworks-related injuries between June 22 and July 22 2012.

It s like the thermal-imaging cameras we carry into burning buildings Livolsi noted. He gave us a demonstration of it and the mobile data terminal computer radar navigational system which details the channel the water s depth and the size and position of objects beneath the surface. It s all invaluable especially when we have a call at night Livolsi said. But even with all the hightech gear a pilot cannot concentrate solely on computer screens. Of equal importance are the human eyes trained on the river itself trained to detect changes in the current and subtle ripples on the surface of the water which could indicate a submerged obstacle. Learning how to read the river is also part of the ongoing education of those who will serve aboard Marine 3. The boat will be used to fight building and bridge fires pumping water from the river through the aforementioned deck gun or by feeding the water through a hose to supply fire engines on land. It will be used in rescue and recovery. There have been situations when people went into the river and all we could do was stand on land and watch Mastandrea recalled. It can maneuver equally well in deep water or shallows as little as 14 inches shallow. And it is fast. With its twin engines 250 HP each it will top out at 50 mph about 44 knots Mastandrea said. Because it was funded through a federal Port Security grant Marine 3 will also provide any assistance required by the U.S. Coast Guard. And it can be called for service anywhere in the Port of New York and New Jersey the captain said. 10% OFF TRAYS TO- GO LET BENSI DO THE COOKIN BEAT THE HEAT THIS SUMMER H O L I D AY S B I R T H D AY S P I C N I C S FREE FREE HASBROUCK HEIGHTS 201-727-9525 HEIGHTS PLAZA VALID ALL WEEK LIMIT 1 DISCOUNT PER CHECK PER VISIT.

After the arrest which Adamek deemed as nothing the 36-year-old native of Poland who has lived in Kearny for the last three years said that he needed some time away from fighting. There was somewhat of a rift between Main Events president Kathy Duva and the Adamek team but Adamek s absence was mainly caused by his need of rest.

I needed some time for rest. I m not 20 anymore. I m older. I was tired. Now I feel good. I feel like a young boy again. I m ready to come back. The Adamek-Grano fight will be televised live on NBC s Sports Network as part of its popular Friday Night Fights package. Adamek has been featured on the network four times already. The two fighters are anticipated to take the ring around 10 30 p.m. that night. Adamek said that his arrest had nothing to do with his time away from the ring. It was a long time ago Adamek said. Everything is settled. I m not worried about it. I ve forgotten about it already. I m thinking more about training for this fight. Adamek now 48-2 lifetime is working his way back toward getting another world championship title fight ever since he lost to Vitali Klitschko in Sept. 2011 via a 12th round technical knockout. He has won four straight bouts since that loss including the win over Cunningham which many experts felt he lost. With that win Adamek earned the right to fight top challenger and undefeated Kubrat Pulev but Adamek has declined the chance to battle the undefeated see VIEW next page Photo by Jim Hague Lyndhurst graduate Camila Alonso (seated center r.) receives the 2012-13 Observer Athlete of the Year award from sports writer Jim Hague (seated center l.).

By Jim Hague Observer Sports Writer W hen Camila Alonso first arrived at Lyndhurst High School three years ago transferring to Lyndhurst from Lodi she almost felt like a fish out of water. I really didn t know anyone Alonso said. But Alonso knew that she wanted to participate in athletics. I started to play soccer when I was 10 in Lodi Alonso said. So when we came here to Lyndhurst it was natural that I played soccer. I played freshman basketball at Lodi but I was a point guard there because they didn t have anyone to bring the ball up the court. So Alonso played soccer in the fall and basketball in the winter. Later on she gave track and field a try. Three years later Alonso has developed into one of the best all-around athletes in Lyndhurst High School history. Last week Alonso culminated her brilliant high school career by receiving the 2012-13 Observer Female Athlete of the Year becoming the second Lyndhurst girl to ever receive the award. Cassie Indri received the award in 2009. It s crazy when you think of it said Kim Hykey Alonso s coach in both soccer and track and field. I think it s the type of storybook tale that you don t think can happen. They make movies about things like this. Alonso wasn t even a member of the varsity basketball team as a sophomore. She was playing on the junior varsity when she scored 37 points in a double overtime game. I just remember everything I shot went in Alonso said of that game. From the start it didn t look like Camila was going to be a player Lyndhurst head girls basketball coach Perrin Mosca said. It didn t seem like it. But she had that one game and we had to bring her up to the varsity. see aTHlETE page 17 16 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 VIEW from 15 Bulgarian. Adamek ranked as the No. 4 heavyweight in the world and his promoter Ziggy Rozalski also of Kearny of Ziggy Promotions tried to secure a bout outside of the Main Events banner but those attempts fell awry. We have had a long and beautiful relationship with Ziggy Roger (Bloodworth Adamek s trainer) and Tomasz Duva said. There was a period there where we were estranged. His contract ran out and he wanted to test the waters. But he made the decision to come back to us. We want to be able to work together throughout his career. We had a couple offers but Kathy gave us the best deal Adamek said. We want to stay with Kathy. It s the 12th card that Main Events is doing with the NBC Sports Network but it will mark the first time Adamek has had to move to the opponent s home turf. The 32-year-old Grano (20-3-1) who lost his last fight to Eric Molina April 27 is a Hartford Conn. native. He has fought seven times at Mohegan Sun posting a 6-1 record in those fights.

It s going to be an interesting fight Adamek said. I ve had fights in Germany England California where I wasn t the favorite of the crowd. I think the Polish crowd will be bigger than Grano s crowd. I m a warrior with a big heart. I m a top heavyweight. Everyone wants to fight me. Bloodworth knows that there s work to be done with his boxer. Tomasz has been off for a while Bloodworth said. But he hasn t been idle. We ve been working on his technique. We know that Tony Grano comes to fight. We ve had a pretty good camp so far. Roger is the one who looks at the opponent Adamek said. We ve been training for about eight-to-10 weeks now about what the opponent does. I m 36 now and have been fighting a long time. But I m still learning and I m never satisfied. Roger is my teacher and he s never stopped teaching me. I have to be ready for anything. I want to be quick. That s why I m training so hard. Duva said that she tried to get the Prudential Center Adamek s boxing home to host the event but Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus is occupying The Rock on Aug. 3. We couldn t line up anything in advance at the Prudential Center Diva said. Tomasz has an established well-known name who brings fans to his fights. We would have loved to have the Prudential Center but with NBC s calendar it just didn t work. Adamek is confident that he could get another shot at the heavyweight championship. I m looking for a title fight next year Adamek said. But I can t look ahead. I have to win Aug. 3. I needed the rest and I ve come back now. Adamek doesn t want to consider what happens if he loses. If God lets me win this next fight I ll go on Adamek said. If not then I stop. This is my destiny. I ll get a signal when my time is over. I feel comfortable right now and feel good. If I have a feeling I can t do it anymore then it s my time to quit. But not now. Also on the Aug. 3 card will be Eddie Chambers a boxer who lost to Adamek last year but is now trying the cruiserweight division. Chambers will fight Thabiso Mchunu on the undercard. Middleweight Curtis Stevens will also fight Saul Roman in another of the seven bouts that evening. But all eyes will be on the Kearny resident making somewhat of a comeback. I m strong mentally now Adamek said. It s good that I came back. Adamek believes he s ready for another challenge in the ring. I feel fresh and ready to come back Adamek said. It s time for me to come back. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 17 ATHLETE from After enjoying success on the varsity level Alonso said that she worked hard on her basketball skills. After my sophomore year I took the game more seriously and put more time into it Alonso said. I got a lot better. I played on a travel team. I worked a lot on my post moves. Once Alonso became an inside player her game took over. As a senior Alonso averaged close to 20 points and 13 rebounds per game including setting a new single-game school scoring record when she scored 46 points in a win over Leonia. That was just unbelievable Alonso said. Who would have ever thought I could score 46 points in one game 15 for what she accomplished. She always gave credit to her teammates. She was a great kid to coach and as I look back someday she ll be one of the best I ll ever coach. She definitely leaves a legacy. Alonso left Lyndhurst with more than 1 000 points in her career becoming only the fifth Lyndhurst girls player to eclipse the prestigious milestone. Hykey said that Alonso s senior year in soccer as a defender was curtailed by a foot injury. She tried to play through the injury and it didn t work Hykey said. I knew what she was capable in basketball so I had to make sure she was ready to play basketball. The track aspect of Alonso s career may be the most impressive considering she did at the NJIC Liberty Division championships winning the discus by 30 feet winning the javelin by 22 feet and placing second in the high jump. At the Bergen County Division C championships she won the javelin with a throw of 131 feet 11 inches and came in third in the discus. When I hit 131 for the first time that s when I knew I was getting pretty good Alonso said. I had medals hanging all over the house and I had no idea what they were for. Alonso continued to fin- ish second overall in Bergen County Meet of Champions in the javelin throwing 133-4. At the NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2 Group I state sectionals Alonso won the discus gold medal and finished second in the javelin. A week later at the overall Group I championships Alonso was second in the javelin and fourth in the discus qualifying for the NJSIAA Meet of Champions in two events. She finished by placing 19th in the javelin and 27th in the discus in the entire state. In the end Alonso set two school records in the javelin and the single game scoring mark in basketball. She was just a tenacious kid Hykey said. To compete in two events at the Meet of Champions is quite an accomplishment. It really couldn t happen to a better kid. She was definitely the hardest worker we had. She was there in the weight room when everyone else had gone home lifting and working.

Once it clicked for her once she knew what she was capable of doing it just took off Mosca said. We certainly weren t looking for her to break a record. That was just a special night. But she worked her tail off to become a better basketball player. She bought into what the coaches were saying and we worked with her. Mosca who has resigned from his coaching position at Lyndhurst to take over the girls basketball program at his alma mater Hackensack said that Alonso s demeanor was a blessing to his team. She never gave up Mosca said. She fought hard and worked hard. She s just a great kid who never took credit not compete in track at all as a junior. I think it was Anthony (Immediate) who talked her into coming out Hykey said. Anthony had her in basketball and coached her a little with the javelin when she was a sophomore. We told her that she could become something special in track but we let her make her own decision. Track and field was very different Alonso said. It was more of an individual sport but in a team. Coach Immediate told me that he thought I could be pretty good. I thought about it and said Why not Let s try it. It was my senior year and I wanted to try it and see if I could have fun.

These kids can hit the ball Michaels said. I m really not surprised at all the way they hit. Henriques Mustafa and Brandon Lau were the team s pitchers. Pitching played a huge part in it Michaels said. We have to watch the pitch count that the league uses (pitchers can only throw 85 pitches) so it s so important to have pitching depth. It s also important for the pitchers to throw strikes. It s absolutely paramount. story continues next page Photo courtesy of Sui Wa Lau Kearny VFW Post 1302 is the 2013 Kearny Little League Champions.

When adults with glaucoma age-related macular degeneration and Fuchs corneal dystrophy (which adversely affects the clear outer layer of the eye) were compared with people without these eye conditions it was found that 40% to 50% of them limited their activities due to fear of falling. Only 16% of their peers with normal vision were less likely to leave home out of fear of falling. This study lends some further insight into the effects of vision loss. In this case treatment could lead to greater social participation and less disability. Stop wishing you could see better and come in to learn how we can help.

THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 19 League championship Jack Michaels the manager s son was a fixture behind the plate and he s only 11 years old so he gets to return next season. He s taking after his older brother Michaels said. Ryan Michaels was a fine catcher and wrestler at Kearny High School graduating just two weeks ago. Mustafa and Henriques shared duties at first base. Henriques also played shortstop so his versatility was a key. Liam Flanagan was the team s second baseman but he played a big role in Game 2 of the championship series. He rarely pitched but he had to come in that game and managed to get out of jams in two innings striking out four Michaels said. He did a great job. Henriques and Lau shared shortstop duties while 11-yearold Andrew Mauricio was the third baseman. In left field the team had Antonio Mastrpole who is a 10-year-old and Michael Carey who is just nine years old. Matthew Sammarone another 10-year-old was in centerfield and right field was shared by a pair of 9-year-olds in Enrique Dajer and Adam Michaels another of the manager s sons. It was a special thrill for Michaels to be able to coach his two sons while winning a championship. It means the world to me Michaels said. They all worked so hard toward this one goal. This is something that they ll never forget for the rest of their lives. To come back this year and defeat the three-time defending champs is a great job. The effort they gave was tremendous. They deserve it. Michaels gave credit to his coaches Sui Wah Lau and Donna Wahler. They were tremendous in getting these kids prepared Michaels said. The manager also wanted to thank the parents who allowed their children to go to practices and games at all different times. They came out and supported us and that means a lot Michaels said. VFW Post 1302 loses five players to graduation but the rest return. We re always in the hunt always around with our kids Michaels said. We re doing our best. It s more than just baseball. It s about life as well and they re doing their best.

If we understand due to lack of understanding. that He possesses the power This is like the story of some to create this vast universe blind people who went to see we behold He also without an elephant. One of them put doubt possesses the power his hand on the elephant s to create a form for Himself. stomach and exclaimed This Even though many spiritual creature is just like a wall. practices argue that God is The second man caught the only formless their argument leg of the elephant and stated is baseless as it implies that This animal is like a tree. they do not accept God as The third caught the tail and All-powerful. If we admit that said The elephant is like a God is All-powerful then we rope. must accept that He possesses The fourth caught the elethe power to manifest Himself phant s ear and said It is like in a form. a fan. Now they all started God is perfect and complete fighting. and so he is both formless and One man was watching possessing forms. He exists these blind men. He pacified everywhere in the world and them Do not fight. None pervades all matter as the of you is wrong. You are Formless God. This fact is all describing parts of the stated in the Vedas same elephant. All that you Dve vava brahmano rupe... have said together makes the ( Brihadaranyaka Upanishad complete elephant. Similarly 2.3.1) SWAMI from 10 God is formless and Allpervading but He also manifests in a personal form. Talking about the personal form of God there are many different forms of the same God worshipped in Hinduism as Krishna Ram Shiva Durga and Vishnu etc. But due to lack of knowledge of the scriptures people are bewildered by the large number of forms of God. People often complain that Hinduism is a very complicated religion which confuses them and they would rather adopt something simpler. The truth is that its diversity is indicative of its depth and treasure of enlightening knowledge passed down since eternity. Through proper guidance one can dispel such doubts and realize that Hinduism in fact presents the profoundest knowledge in the simplest manner. Different forms of God are not different from each other none is bigger or smaller than the other. We too have different dimensions aspects to our personality. When a father goes to the office he is dressed very formally. When he goes out to the park he is dressed semi-formally. And when he is at home he is dressed very informally. Now one does not become confused thinking how come one man has become three fathers The child knows very well that these are three different appearances of one father. Similarly Krishna Ram Shiv Vishnu etc. are not different Gods they all are different forms of the same one God. This is stated in the Vedas Ekam santam bahudhaya kalpayanti (Rig Veda 10.114.5) The Absolute Truth is one but it has been described in a variety of ways by the saints. While comparing the example of a worldly father with God we must also note the difference. A worldly father is not all-powerful he cannot exist in all three places at the same time. However God is Supremely powerful. He can manifest in as many forms as he wishes and exist in all of them simultaneously. Therefore he eternally exists in the forms of Krishna Ram Shiv Vishnu etc. The true devotee respects all these forms of God while doing devotion to any one of them. Many people also worship the celestial gods for material rewards. However we must remember that these devats cannot grant either liberation from material bondage or God-realization. It is because devats are not God they are souls like all of us. They simply occupy specific posts in the affairs of running the world and live in the higher planes of existence within this material world called swarg or the celestial abodes. Even if they do bestow material benefits it is only by the powers they have received from God. Consider the federal government of the country. There is a Secretary of State a Finance Secretary an Industries Secretary an Agriculture Secretary and so on. These are posts and chosen people occupy those posts for a limited tenure. At the end of the tenure the government changes and all the post-holders change too. The posts of Secretary of State etc. remain but the persons holding these posts change. see SWAMI page 23 Make time for life. Schedule a mammogram today. You lead a busy life.

People were getting a lot of tickets for parking in yellow zones or other prohibited areas because they were desperate. And Hernandez added let s say you have visitors where do they park Now however some relief appears to be in sight thanks to a cooperative agreement reached between the township and Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo. Township Manager Kevin Esposito said last week that the county has agreed to yield several feet of right of way to the former hospital property to allow the township to widen Carpenter St. by a fixed length and thereby create more parking for the residents along the street by allowing residents to park on both sides of Carpenter which will remain one-way. The job which will include removal of several trees along the right of way will be done by A&J Contractors Group Inc. of Monroe Township Esposito said. A&J is the same firm that has been contracted to pave several designated streets in the township. We definitely need more parking up there said Second Ward Councilman Steven Rovell. Councilman Michael Nicosia said the township engineer has come up with a preliminary estimate that the work will price out at around 75 000. The township is looking at two ways to pay for it either tapping unused federal Community Development Block Grant funds or using money from the sale of the former School 1 property Hank pointed out that the agreement was secured after [the county] had put the [former hospital] property out to bid. We were nervous about that. Work on the right of way was expected to begin this week. The county has tentatively designated Alma Realty of New York as the high bidder at 3.7 million for the 34-acre hospital property conditional on the county freeholders approving the sale. The status of the Great Lawn fronting Belleville Ave. remains in question. Members of the Pathen family and a group of other investors have looked to acquire this property but the transactions have been stalled by litigation. The township has introduced legislation looking to the possibility of exercising the power of eminent domain to acquire the land to preserve it as open space.

Then they fall from their posts and others occupy these seats. Thus souls get these posts of Agni Dev Vyu Dev Indra Dev Varu Dev etc. only temporarily. We cannot compare them to the Supreme Lord. This distinction should be borne in mind between the various forms of Bhagavn or God and the celestial gods or devats of swarg. Hence Shree Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita that people who worship the celestial gods are less intelligent. Those who are situated in knowledge worship the Supreme Lord.

The teachers collaborated once again on a Vietnam War unit culminating in students creating posters honoring the 11 men they were randomly assigned to study. Students researched their man using Belleville Sons Honor Roll a book written by Buccino s husband local author Anthony Buccino who spoke to the students about the 11 heroes the importance of honoring their service and keeping local history alive. The classes also heard from Belleville High School alumnus Bob Druther a Vietnam War veteran and Bronze Star recipient. Druther told students about his experiences in Vietnam and shared personal stories about some of the 11 men who were his friends and comrades. He also brought some of his medals including the Bronze Star for the students to see and hold. The finished posters were displayed in the halls of BMS in time for Memorial Day. Buccino returned to the school to judge the posters picking one winner for each man to be displayed across from the main office. The remaining posters were displayed on the third floor outside the students classrooms. The 2013 winning posters for the 11 Belleville Sons were for Helder DaSilva honored by Ashley Tulud John Hoar honored by Elijah Umar Jerry Donatiello honored by Lenny Haynoski Roger Crowell honored by Casandra Catanio Donald Saunders honored by Josh Yilmaz Ray DeLuca honored by Luis Cedano Frank Cancelliere honored by Elijah Bosques Alfred Barnes honored by Ananda Osborne Paul Nelson honored by Kaicy Naranjo William Branch honored by Naomi Hiraldo and Carl Mickens honored by Christina Sawires.

One big reason extracurricular groups need money is for travel Millar said. Examples the Fishing Club did a weekend trip to Brielle to catch blues and striped bass Alpha Omega a Christian club visited an evolution museum in Kentucky Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) recently attended a national convention in California and the Culinary Club went to the City Farm Caf at Manhattan s Union Square Park to pick up items needed to plan and execute a banquet. The KHS fact sheet says the event will run from 8 to 11 a.m. with organizers setting up for the race at 7 a.m. and spending an hour in postrace mode doing cleanup. Racers will start at the back side of the KHS stadium football end zone at the south end of the field then exit the stadium to Forest St. go one block and turn right onto Quincy Ave. go one block and turn right onto Davis Ave. to enter West Hudson Park where they ll complete one loop around the park then turn right onto Davis and turning left onto King St. and continuing to the stadium entrance until they reach the finish line 165 meters down the track near the south field house. KHS is asking the town to place barricades along the race route and to close residential streets within the event area to vehicular access between 8 a.m. and 10 30 a.m. and run organizers will be responsible for notifying all residents affected by street closings and [parking restrictions] ... [and] will deliver fliers to residents doorsteps detailing [the] course map and street closures no later than Sept. 1 the fact sheet says. Organizers are asking the town for a police presence along the route for safety s sake. Photo by Ron Leir Race co-director John Millar displays flier for 5K run. The KHS Band will be positioned inside the stadium and will play as runners start and finish. Organizers will take pains to ensure that the music volume will not adversely impact on residents and businesses. Restroom facilities along with food and water will be available inside the stadium. As an added attraction organizers will set up tents to display student work and or to distribute information about student programs. Aside from the 5K race which KHS says will be USA Track & Field certified there are also plans for a fun race for children. I m very excited KHS Principal Al Gilson said. This will really build our culture and support our kids and it s a great way to kick off the school year. We ll also be showing our kids an example of a healthy life style. Our purpose is actually two-fold we do fundraising and we show the community what [our kids] do. And Gilson said it will be a good way to get kids who don t sign up for extra-curricular programs to get on board build a sense of community in our school. We re shooting for 500 to 750 participants Gilson said but I d love to get 1 000 or more. But organizers still have to pin down a budget for the event including such things as overtime for municipal police and or county sheriff s officers T-shirts and trophies certification and timing of the race race forms bibs pins and packet prep ribbons raffles and race announcer food and beverages race posters and lawn signs. Organizers will try to line up corporate sponsors to help subsidize the event Millar and Gilson said. Insurance coverage for the event is provided through the Board of Education s policy Millar said so that s one less item to factor into the projected budget. KHS art teachers are designing the race Tshirts he said. Gilson and Millar are the co-directors of the race but they ve got plenty of help from these volunteers Matt Weber is registration coordinator Jim Cifelli is course marshal Jennifer Correnti is volunteer coordinator Wendy Kerr is food coordinator Police Sgt. John Manley is logistics coordinators Sally Sprague is secretary Charlotte Harris is treasurer Chris McShane is design director and Alan Correnti is media coordinator. Millar is also awards coordinator. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 Nutley Health Department now offers shingles vaccine The Nutley Health Department is offering the shingles (herpes zoster) vaccination for people age 60 and over by appointment only. Shingles is a condition characterized by clusters of blisters which develop on one side of the body in a band-like pattern and can cause severe pain that may last for weeks months or years. CDC recommends a single dose of the zoster vaccine Zostavax for adults age 60 and over even if they have had a prior episode of shingles. This vaccine is recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) a committee of immunization experts who advise CDC on immunization policy. The most common side effects in people who received Zostavax were redness pain and tenderness swelling at the site of injection itching and headache. Researchers found that overall in those ages 60 and above the vaccine reduced the occurrence of shingles by about 50 % and 64 % for ages 60-69. During their lifetime over 95 % of people are infected by the varicella zoster virus (VZV) the virus that causes the common childhood disease chickenpox. The virus becomes dormant within the nerves and if it reactivates later in life the result can be shingles. The risk of contracting shingles increases with age starting at around 50 and is highest in the elderly. About one in three persons will develop shingles during their lifetimes resulting in about one million cases of shingles per year. Shingles Facts Anyone who has had chicken pox can get shingles. That means 95 % of adults are at risk. Approximately onethird of the U.S. population will get shingles. More than half of older adults do not understand the seriousness of shingles and its complications. Among those who get shingles more than one-third will develop serious complications. The risk of complications rises after 60 years of age. Appropriate and immediate treatment of herpes zoster can control acute symptoms and reduce the risk of longer term complications. Starting anti-viral medication within 72 hours of the onset of shingles can reduce the pain and the length of time the outbreak lasts. For more information or to set up an appointment call 973-284-4976. The cost of the vaccine is 175. Free vaccine may be available if you qualify. Some insurance companies will reimburse you.

People with O-negative blood are known as universal donors because their blood can be transfused into anyone in emergency rooms and trauma situations when there is no time for blood typing. Our donor pool decreases sharply just as summer approaches said NYBC Vice President Rob Purvis. Since schools are out and people are on vacation we need others to step up for the continued care of hospital patients. Each day there are patients some arrive in emergency rooms and others are undergoing cancer treatment who depend on the transfusion of red blood cells platelets and plasma to stay alive. To donate blood or to organize a blood drive call toll-free 1-800933-2566 or visit www. nybloodcenter.org. Those unable to donate are encouraged to ask someone to donate for them or to consider volunteering at a local blood drive. NYBC also offers special community service scholarships for students who organize community blood drives during summer months. Any company community organization place of worship or individual may host a blood drive. Blood donors receive free mini-medical exams on site including information about their temperature blood pressure and hematocrit level. Eligible donors must be at least age 16 (with parental permission or consent) who weigh at least 110 pounds are in good health and meet all Food and Drug Administration and N.Y. or N.J. State Department of Health donor criteria. People over 75 may donate with a doctor s note. 201.618.4168 201.997.1020 (973)273-1325 www.divorcebankruptcyimmigration.com 397 Kearny Ave Kearny NJ 201-998-2588 Jasmine Foot Spa Grand Opening Organic Oil & Hot Stone Body Work 30 mins. 30 45 mins. 45 60 mins. 50 Gift Certificates Available Foot Reflexology 30 mins. 25 45 mins. 35 60 mins. 45 5 OFF One Hour Foot Refexology 10 OFF Any Services of 60 or more 15 OFF Any Services of 75 or more I GENERAL COSMETIC & IMPLANT DENTISTRY Love PERFUME www.iloveperfume.us DESIGNER FRAGRANCE DISTRIBUTOR Kearny - NJ (201) 246-0923 We sell original perfumes only San Juan - PR (787) 701-4747 Accepting NOW ACCEPTING LOCAL 472-172 Falamos Portugu s Hablamos Espa ol 47 Kearny Ave Kearny NJ 07032 201-998-1400 125HKearnyAve. Kearny NJ 201-246-0923 www.iloveperfume.us To advertise in our Business Directory Call 201-991-1600 32 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 3 2013 BradY BradY & reillY Experience.
