July 10 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXVI No. 7 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Assessing Sandy s handiwork By Ron Leir Observer Correspondent KEARNY Now that Kearny has a permanent tax assessor he ll likely be grappling with claims by multiple home and businesses owners that the value of their properties have been diminished by the onslaught of Superstorm Sandy last fall. Nationwide the bill for Sandy s handiwork has been reckoned at nearly 70 billion in property wreckage. Based on preliminary surveys the Kearny Office of Emergency Management figured that some 300 industries and commercial businesses suffered more than 50 million in losses while 150 homes and 50 apartments took a hit of about 8 million. Not to mention the shocks absorbed by municipal infrastructure including water control systems rolling stock debris clearance and employee overtime calculated at about 4 million. For 2013 Peneda will be dealing with 129 tax appeals from residential property owners and an additional 50 from commercial owners with most of that latter expected to end up in state tax court for final deliberation. We figure most of the state tax cases should be settled by the third or fourth week of see PENEDA page The span of memories By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent NORTH ARLINGTON n the middle of the day on July 4 in the middle of the span that was known on the western side of the Passaic River as the Rutgers St. Bridge and on the eastern side as the Belleville Pike Bridge there was a ceremony to mark its official renaming. Henceforth it shall be called the Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca Memorial Bridge. Undoubtedly people will shorten that to just the Montes De Oca Bridge or even the De Oca Bridge which would be colloquially acceptable. But in no instance should it revert to its old names. Despite official renamings no one (except certain traffic reporters) calls the 59th St. Bridge in Manhattan the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge and no one calls the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel.

I knew it had a place in local history but not exactly why or of what import. Basically what I knew is that it was old. And like many old things it can be in danger of being ignored. Or worse forgotten. Now however thanks to the Belleville Historical Society I have begun to educate myself on this local treasure. And last week also thanks to the society I spent one of the most meaningful Fourths of July ever. Part of that was because of the ceremony renaming the Rutgers St. Belleville Pike Bridge in honor of Marine Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca. (See story P. 1) But the day began with a tribute to other American veterans those who won our nation its freedom in the first place. As it does every July 4th the Belleville Historical Society held its Independence Day Ceremony in the cemetery of the Dutch Reformed Church at Rutgers and Main Sts. In that graveyard are buried 66 soldiers who fought in the American Revolution. There is a well-kept monument inscribed with their names but time has taken its toll on the graveyard at large.

The Rev.

The suspect Juan Garcia was being held in the Hudson County Jail on 75 000 bail on charges of luring by attempting to entice a child authorities said. According to police Officer Pat Becker and Sgt. Pete Gleason responded to the 800 block of Kearny Ave. at 2 30 p.m. July 2 to interview the girl and her guardian relative to the girl s having been approached in the area at least twice in of the suspect who was believed to be still in the area Becker and Gleason located and detained Garcia who was also found to be wanted on an outstanding theft warrant from Clifton police said. He was taken into custody and transported to Kearny police headquarters for processing and for follow-up investigation regarding the original complaint. While Garcia was at HQ a positive identification was made by the victim and evidence gathered by officers at the latest location where he had allegedly approached the girl further linked him to the incident police said. Before he was transported to the county jail a DNA sample was taken from the suspect.. The Hudson County Prosecutor s Special Victims Unit was notified of the incident the KPD noted.

I couldn t shine Will s shoes much less those of his horse but please allow me to share some musings on these events on the world stage Egypt said to be the cradle of civilization continues to rock our world with the latest pronouncements of the nation s military. President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood cannot be trusted to run the country the generals have pronounced with the tacit assent of Ameri- I ca s envoys. Perhaps Morsi will now be whisked off to some wait station at some Middle East airport and somewhere cross flight paths with the American fugitive leaker Edward Snowden. If so Snowden can probably shed some light on why Obama & Co. lost patience with the man in Cairo. Turns out this Arab Spring phenomenon has more twists and turns than the Secrets of the Sphinx. So the military has taken control in Egypt which as the press pundits point out sounds like a coup in which case the country forfeits the 1 billion-plus aid we use to prop up our Near East ally mostly for weaponry by the way. Which we ve already given them this year. Oops. Maybe we ll take it away next year and hand it over to Israel. They can use the dough to build more border settlements just in case the Palestinians want to explore the notion of statehood again. The cause of social media is advancing in the Far East. Japanese politicians are learning about Facebook and Twitter and transparency. Seems their media-savvy consultants are cautioning them not to overtax their constituents with a lot of heavy talk about the meat-and-potato issues ... just tell the voters what you had for lunch for example so they know you re a real person. At least that s what The New York Times has reported. In the U.S. we ve got some fun stuff happening in Wyoming where the cattle outnumber the people and where Liz Cheney daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is itching to run for U.S. Senate as the Republican nominee and dad is stumping with her the Times notes. Only problem is her opponent would be the incumbent Republican Sen. Michael Enzi a longtime fly-fishing pal of Dick. Enzi isn t backing down. Put down those shotguns fellas. Then there s Frank Serpico the ex-New York cop who you ll recall blew the whistle on what he claimed was widespread police corruption in the late 60s retiring on a disability pension after being shot during a drug bust. Serpico now 77 and living in a rural upstate N.Y. town is upset again the Times reports this time with his neighbor in a property dispute. The neighbor aiming to sell his land to a developer has bulldozed the grounds and in the process according to Serpico has uprooted trees on his land which the ex-cop says he s maintained in its natural wild state. Maybe there ll be a new movie in the making. Ron Leir Don t forget to check www.theobserver.com for news that didn t make it into this week s paper Follow us on Facebook & twitter.com theobservernj WE VE GOT MAIL To the Editor While certainly respecting the writer Swami Mukundananda personally I wish to set forth the true God of the Bible far different than set forth in the article. Yes indeed there is certainly One Creator. However the God of the Bible has not at all set forth in His Bible that there would be a merging into Him at the time of what the writer calls the time of annihilation. Just the opposite The God of the Bible ( all Scripture is God-breathed ) has revealed that each of us is born a sinner sinners by nature falling short of His glory which is why we die. ( We ve all gone astray each of us has turned to his own way ... There is none righteous no not one. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God... the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus. ) God sets forth in His Bible that we have all broken His law and that if we break one we have broken them all. Not good news. However there is good news for those who have and for those who will put their trust in the finished work of a glorious Person Jesus Christ God come in the flesh ( And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and the Another religious viewpoint Word was God ) Who paid our debt by His shed blood ( there is no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood ) His crucifixion ( It is finished ) and ( justification i.e. rendered innocent ) by His resurrection. There is a glorious eternity for those of us who have and those who will receive the Savior and the gift of salvation. (The promise is a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. ) We know that Michael Phelps broke world records with his Olympic swimming but he can t swim to Europe. In the same way we cannot in ourselves in the condition in which we are all born hope to satisfy the sin debt we owe to a perfectly holy God by anything we can do whether good we do religion etc. But the Bible is 100% clear it is appointed unto men to die once and then to face judgment. And what follows that judgment is anything but annihilation. With outstretched arms and unfathomable love He makes the one-time offer of the free gift of salvation that of receiving Him and putting trust in Him and His finished work when He did what none of us can do for ourselves. His invitation is for all from every background. Jesus said I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever comes to Me even though He dies He will live. Also the writer of the article mentioned wars - having a label of Christian in any period of time in no way means that a person(s) has repented of his her sin and received Jesus as Savior having a personal relationship with Him. It should be noted that untold numbers of people have walked among the very lands and events described in the Bible. Also over 300 prophecies have been accurately fulfilled by the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and now again the world scene for future events is accurately unfolding according to the continued prophecies in the Bible. Virginia Desmond North Arlington A kind gesture The Lyndhurst Girls Association is a small group of women who maintain The Libbie Lindsay Little House as a meeting place for Lyndhurst Girl Scouts and their leaders. Recently we had an unexpected emergency when the commode was not working properly and needed to be replaced. With scout meetings and several other events scheduled we needed to get this done as quickly as possible. I placed a call to Carl Carbone Plumbing who came first thing in the morning and replaced the toilet. I asked for the bill only to be told there would be no bill. Carl donated the fixture materials and labor to the Little House. On behalf of the ladies and the Girl Scouts of Lyndhurst I would like to thank Carl Carbone for his very kind and generous donation. He is a wonderful asset to the community and we wanted to publicly acknowledge him. Kathy Isoldi Lyndhurst Girls Association THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 10 2013 07 BRIDGE from 01 The Lance Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca Memorial Bridge however is different. Just as it rises above the river it rises above politics. It memorializes a local man a local patriot a local hero a 20-yearold Marine from North Arlington who was killed February 2012 on a combat mission in Helmand Province Afghanistan. The thousands who cross the span every day should remind themselves at each crossing of the Marine s supreme sacrifice. Those who live in the surrounding towns -- Belleville North Arlington Kearny Lyndhurst Nutley -- should try to forget the bridge ever had another name. Children should be taught to use the new name. The Montes De Oca Bridge is a tribute to every American serving in uniform serving in the name of liberty. And to the families who love them. The crowd that gathered at noon July 4 in the scorching sunlight and blistering heat was there to honor the corporal and all his military compatriots. Patriotism is not necessarily comfortable. The ceremony included rousing music and the plaintive sounds of a lone bagpipe there were heartfelt prayers and there were brief speeches some by the local state and national elected officials who had helped gain government approval for the renaming. Among the speakers was North Arlington Mayor Peter Massa who had earlier stated Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca gave his life for this country on a battlefield halfway across the world. It is a fitting tribute to have the bridge renamed in his honor and to stand as Photos by Karen Zautyk Osmany Montes De Oca who is Osbrany s twin Maria Samaniego Osbrany s girlfriend and the Marine s mother Miriam Montes De Oca (l. to r.) at ceremony which featured Marine Corps Color Guard an everlasting monument to the sacrifice he made for the United States of America. A memorial wreath was cast into the waters. And the new bridge signs were unveiled. But at the heart of it all were the active-duty Marines serving in the color guard the VFW American Legion and West Hudson Marine Corps League who cooperated in organizing the event and the veterans from various branches of the military and various wars (there was a significant Vietnam veterans contingent) who were there to pay tribute to a fallen brother. Also at the heart of it were all the ordinary people who had come out to witness the dedication. And the extraordinary people the members of the corporal s family including his mother Miriam Montes De Oca a woman whose fragile beauty belies her incredible inner strength. Miriam Montes De Oca whose home is on the Belleville Pike has lost one son to combat. She also has two others serving in the Marine Corps Osbrany s twin Osmany and their older brother Sandro. A fourth son Franklin the youngest reportedly also harbors a desire to join the Corps. Last year following Osbrany s hometown funeral with full military honors and his burial at Holy Cross Cemetery the mourning mother was kind enough to sit down with Observer correspondent Jeff Bahr to share some memories of her son. Osbrany and Osmany were determined to become U.S. Marines she told Bahr. Since they were 11 they dreamed about being Marines. They said when they were 18 they wanted to sign up and were going to do it no matter what I said. Osbrany even told me that he would one day win the Purple Heart. She recalled Osbrany telling her Mom I know what I m getting myself into. If I m going to die I m going to die a Marine. Bahr wrote It was a haunting comment that she could never quite shake. He also described a velvet box on a table in the family s home a box containing Osbrany s Purple Heart. We spoke to Miriam before the ceremony began only briefly because it appeared she was going to be besieged by television reporters. The bridge renaming was something really important she told us. Every time I am over here she explained I will feel like my son is here too. We are certain he was there on the Fourth of July. As the ceremony was beginning there was a brief but telling moment that some in the crowd might have not even seen. The Marine Corps Color Guard having marched in with the American flag and the U.S. Marine flag set the banners onto pedestals on the bridge walkway at center span. Just then a gust of wind swept in and the Stars & Stripes began to topple. As some onlookers gasped one of the Vietnam veterans acted--sprinting forward with lightning speed and grasping Old Glory before it could touch the ground. We had a feeling that Lance Cpl. Osbrany Montes De Oca was looking down and saluting. Semper Fi.

In addition when newspapers and mail pile up it s indicative of an unoccupied home. The KPD has always and is continuing to offer a Vacant House Check while a resident is away the department notes. Residents can easily register for this service and talk to an officer about crime prevention tips by contacting the Community Police Unit at 201-9981313 ext. 2825. Meanwhile the KPD remains busily occupied. Recent reports from the police blotter included but were not limited to the following June 27 At 4 40 p.m. Vice Unit detectives reportedly observed a known drug offender engage in a hand-to-hand transaction with another individual in an out-of-town location. They subsequently followed the offender into Kearny to Schuyler and Bergen Aves. where they stopped his vehicle and advised him of their earlier observation. They also reportedly observed him attempt to hide something in the vehicle s door pocket. Police said this turned out to be six bags of suspected heroin. Placed under arrest was 23-year-old Kearny resident Janusz Chytla charged with possession of a CDS possession of paraphernalia and operating a motor vehicle while in possession of a CDS. At 3 30 that afternoon Gonzalez located the suspect Fabio Laguer 20 of Newark on Passaic Ave. There Gonzalez and Officer Brian Wisely took him into custody on the Newark fugitive warrant and after processing at HQ turned him over to the Newark PD.

Orsini an experienced clinical psychologist to its team. She will work with cancer patients at the center to assist them through feelings of depression anxiety or isolation following a cancer diagnosis and offer them individual or family counseling sessions as they undergo treatment. The Cancer Center at CMMC is committed to meeting the physical and psychosocial needs of our patients by offering access to a full array of professionals in one convenient location said Jill Wargo director of the Cancer Center. After a cancer diagnosis Orsini said the need for support increases because patients may experience increased worry and are often concerned about how to talk to family members about issues such as diagnosis and treatment. For seriously ill patients therapy can offer a chance to re-evaluate the meaning of life by encouraging relationship bonds completion of lingering lifelong goals and most importantly therapy can help patients tie any loose ends regarding the legacy they would like to leave with others Orsini said. We are proud to offer this expert care to cancer patients at Clara Maass Medical Center said Mary Ellen Clyne president and CEO of CMMC.

For the past few weeks the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission (PVSC) has been hard at work clearing major debris deposited by Superstorm Sandy from the shoreline that adjoins Port Liberte and New York Harbor. For residents of Port Liberte a townhouse and condominium community which commands a spectacular panoramic view of the New York Skyline the debris left behind by Sandy presented an esthetic as well as a safety problem. Among the debris removed from the shoreline are large timbers pieces of ravaged docks and piers and other floatables that not only were unsightly and dangerous to residents but hazardous to recreational and commercial traffic in the navigation channel. It s fitting that PVSC through our River Restoration Program has been able to remove this ugly debris and transform these beautiful vistas just in time for our nation s 237th birthday said PVSC Executive Director Michael DeFrancisci. The PVSC has embarked on an intensive strategic poststorm cleanup campaign to free the Passaic River and major tributaries of blockages help with flood control and maintain the quality of the waterways. Cleanups will continue throughout the summer. According to PVSC Commissioner Kenneth J. Lucianin PVSC is mindful of the pollution and quality of life issues associated with the storm debris as well as the navigational and safety hazards they pose. The removal of this debris is a significant undertaking. We re glad that PVSC was able to lend assistance to our neighboring towns and businesses. PVSC crew clears debris left by Sandy off Liberty Island and in New York Harbor. It s Nice to Eat at Slice Any Specialty Pizza Not valid with any other coupon. Must present coupon.

Crecco former Mayor of Bloomfield and his wife Marion Crecco who served in the State Assembly presented Clara Maass Medical Center representatives with a 12 000 donation towards a 25 000 pledge on behalf of the John I. Crecco Foundation for cardiacrelated services at the Belleville hospital. The Creccos said they decided to contribute cardiac exercise equipment to Clara Maass after receiving a letter from the CMMC Foundation about its newly renovated Cardiac Rehabilitation Suite. I was always responsive to Clara Maass s needs and requests said Mrs. Crecco. And when I got the letter I was happy to be able to continue to be supportive. During the visit the Creccos shared memories of Essex County and of Clara Maass. They shared their fondness for CMMC physicians many of whom they have been close friends with for years as well as what the Medical Center has meant to them in their personal and political lives. This was my district for six years Mrs. Crecco said. I had nothing but positive experiences in the township of Belleville and at Clara Maass Medical Center. I supported it then and I support it now. According to the Crecco family the John I. Crecco Foundation has been dedicated to improving health and enriching lives for over 40 years. Through its efforts the organization has contributed over 1 million to hospitals in the area including CMMC for cardiac initiatives. Renovations and improvements at Clara Maass Medical Center are contingent on community philanthropy said Jane Newman Kessler vice president of the CMMC Foundation. The fact that Mr. and Mrs. Crecco have such fond memories of the Medical Center and want to contribute to its wellbeing is truly meaningful. John Crecco served as an elected official for Bloomfield for 22 years including mayor from 1986 to 1989 and was re-elected councilman four times. Mrs. Crecco served over 15 years in the Assembly where she held the posts of Deputy Speaker Assistant Majority Leader and Assistant Majority Whip.

More importantly Durning graduated from Kearny High School as the No. 2 student academically in the Class of 2013 a high achievement on its own. Durning was also one of the team s leaders earning the nickname of Mother Duck from coach Al Perez because the younger members of the team constantly followed Durning around. Durning certainly left her mark as one of the most diversified female athletes in the school s history. Another standout Kearny athlete was soccer standout Katie O Neill who is headed to the University of Binghamton in a few weeks to play soccer there. O Neill was clearly one of the best all-around players in the state and should be able to make her mark on the college level as well. Fellow Kearny senior Kristen Stankus had a brilliant senior year as the school s top female bowler and as a slugging catcher for the softball team. Speaking of softball how could you go wrong with the talented battery from Lyndhurst namely pitcher Casey Zdanek and catcher Julieann Schneidenbach The two friends led the Golden Bears to their best season in recent memory going all the way to the NJSIAA North 2 Group II sectional title game. Zdanek will take her talents to Drew University in the fall where she s bound to be a success. see VIEW next page NA s Nocciolo earns Observer Athlete of the Year second straight Viking Three-sport standout becomes fourth in six years to earn honor Photo by Jim Hague North Arlington graduate A.J.

Dear Dr. E Why do I have to have my wisdom teeth out if they do not bother me A majority of the time even if the wisdom teeth are not causing discomfort the x-rays show a different story. Many times by reading the xray your dentist can predict if the wisdom teeth are going to be a future problem. Many wisdom teeth are impacted which means that they are within your gums and or your jawbone. Exposed or partially impacted wisdom teeth are at greater risk for decay due to their difficult to-reach while brushing area. These partially exposed wisdom teeth allow an opening for bacteria to enter which can lead to infection. Most commonly this infection will cause swelling jaw stiffness and discomfort. Many dentists and oral surgeons want to remove wisdom teeth during their patient s later teen years. Removing wisdom teeth during this time is done to avoid a more complicated extraction years later. Removal during this time has a much quicker recovery because the roots are not fully developed and bone is less dense. In older people these factors tend to create much more difficult extractions as well as a prolonged healing period. So even if your wisdom teeth are not bothering you it is always a great idea to ask your dentist their opinion about what is the best course of action for you and your wisdom teeth. And remember summer is a great time to have them removed it gives you a great excuse to hang out and enjoy some ice cream All the Best ZOOM IMPLANTS PREVENTATIVE SERVICES WHITENING VENEERS ROOT CANAL CROWNS BRIDGES DENTURES IMPLANTS PERIODONTAL TREATMENT EXTRACTIONS & FILLINGS IMMEDIATE RESULTS FIRST VISIT ONLY 99 1999 & UP Free Consultation Whitening Branford Dental Center 23 Branford Pl.

It was a pleasure to see what the kid could do every single day. David Walsh who recently resigned as the head boys basketball coach at North Arlington also had praise for Nocciolo. He knew what it took to be a better athlete and knew that it took a lot of work Walsh said. He might not have been the best basketball player but he was going to give 100% every single day. He had a nice mid-range jump shot but his best shot was the 3-pointer. But because of his size he knew he had to mix it up down low. He was big enough and tough enough to get the job done and that was a big plus for us. Walsh believed that Nocciolo s basketball prowess came easy. He just loved to play and liked to play our style Walsh said. He wanted to be a part of our program. He could have easily found something else to do but he wanted to play basketball. Playing those three sports isn t easy. I think he realized that being idle is bad. It s smarter to be active. Free time is a coach s enemy.

Fairly recently researchers discovered that there are branchlike eye cells that mammals utilize to set their inner clocks to either day or night. These so-called intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells or ipRGCs number only between one and two thousand and are positioned deeper in the retina than the rods and cones (the photoreceptors that help the eye distinguish light and color). For their part ipRGCs measure overall light intensity and relay the information to a small region of the brain that controls the body clock.

It s stressed that it s for the kid. Imagine that they re able to raffle off bikes for the kids. There s something to win every single game. I love the tournament and will never leave as long as it s played. It s good competition for the kids and it s fun for them. As they move on they will always remember playing in the tournament. As they move up to Little League next year they already have a little taste of what they re going to see. Watson said that Kearny has participated in the tourney for the last six years. Anthony Farinhas is the coach of the Kearny entry in the tourney. I ve enjoyed coaching this team tremendously Farinhas said. You want the kids to learn something about the game and this is such a tremendous experience for them. They get to compete against other teams from other towns and see the other competition at such an early age. Farinhas said that he wanted to compile a team that featured kids who want to play the game. You want to have kids who have the passion to play and that makes me enjoy it more Farinhas said. They are soaking it all up like a sponge. If they have the passion at an early age it only helps as they progress. Farinhas said that his team represents the future of Kearny baseball. His son Anthony Jr. has been one of the team s top pitchers having struck out 50 batters so far. Anthony Schi- menti is another promising pitcher and Adam Juchnik who also plays shortstop has the potential to be a great one someday. A pair of twins occupies catcher and first base for Kearny. Jonathan Muller is the first baseman while Matthew is the catcher. Matthew is an outstanding catcher with a great demeanor behind the plate Farinhas said. He s always very calm back there. I love his demeanor. Tranton Witt the younger brother of Kearny standout T.J. is the second baseman. He s a very aggressive player Farinhas said. Juchnik spends most of his time at shortstop. He s a very good player and he s very vocal Farinhas said. He probably has the most experience of anyone on the team. Billy McChesney is the third baseman. He hits the ball a ton said Farinhas of McChesney who also serves as the backup catcher. Michael Ciardiello plays left field but Ciardiello also sees time at third base. Eli Jablonski is the centerfielder and Chris Carson is in right field. Kyle Antosh Jonathan Hernandez and Nate Matthews are key reserves. These are the best eightyear-olds in Kearny and I guarantee that they will have a bright future in baseball said Farinhas who has received assistance from Bobby Carson Jim Muller Chris Juchnik and Watson. Other towns in the tourney include Garfield Paramus Hoboken Teaneck WoodRidge Oradell Rutherford Little Ferry North Bergen and Maywood. Needless to say it s been a labor of love for the people in Lyndhurst like league president Bob Laverty and committee members Mark Naseef Terry Chiappa John Berko and Nick Romito. A tip of the cap goes to recently retired Superintendent of Parks and Recreation Rick Pizzuti who helped make the tournament successful. Pizzuti spent 42 years with the Parks and Recreation department in Lyndhurst. There are countless others behind the scenes who make The Tournament as it is now readily known a success. And will continue to do so in the years to come. North Arlington Girls So tball League annual coaches game The 15th annual North Arlington Girls Softball Coaches vs. Coaches game was held on June 22.

ATHLETE from 17 say that I had some of the best athletes in North Arlington over the last 20 or so years. Walsh did coach all four Observer Athlete of the Year recipients.

He was always mentally ready to compete and he brought that attitude to the baseball team Marcantuono said. He s a tough kid a great kid a superior athlete. He told me that he really missed playing baseball and wanted to come back. Nocciolo knew that there were no guarantees for playing time in baseball especially after sitting out two seasons.

Girone said the parish has been in the processing of repaying an emergency loan from the Archdiocese to finance much of those repairs. Proceeds from the sale of the Carmelites property gifted to the parish were used along with a portion of the rental of the school building to help pay back the Archdiocese he said. Meanwhile the windows and gutters project is expected to be completed in a few weeks according to Antonio Silva. Sometime after that Girone said yet another fundraising drive will be undertaken for the replacement of the sanctuary pews and flooring which he said are believed to date from the late 1880s when the church was built. To that end the church will be sponsoring A Night Un- der The Stars a gala dinner dance on Sept. 21 beginning with a cocktails at 6 30 p.m. followed by a catered dinner at 7 30 p.m. and concluding with a tricky tray at 9 15 p.m. The celebration starts outside Church Square by the St. Anthony s entrance.

Parker photo exhibit at Nutley Public Library Visit the Nutley Public Library 93 Booth Dr. this month to view the photography exhibit of local artist Robert Parker. His display features large vivid photographs from around the world that he selected for this show. Selecting the Art of Seeing as his theme Parker explains From the broad scene before his eyes the photographer must focus on that small portion that offers artistic balance--a portion in which light balance color and simplicity come together to create an artistic whole. The photographer also looks for an underlying emotion in his image. Parker who has practiced his craft for more than four decades has won many national awards. He has exhibited his photographs throughout the metropolitan area with his wife Margot at both the Venezuelan Consulate and the Donnell Library in Manhattan as well as at Brookdale Community College in Freehold. His work has also appeared at The Donald B. Palmer Museum Springfield Sussex County Community College the Arts Guild of Rahway and Sussex Community College Newton. Solo exhibitions have been at the Atrium Gallery Morristown Forrestal Center Princeton Bloomfield College and Fairleigh-Dickinson University both Rutherford and Teaneck as well as at the Nutley Belleville Madison and Chester public libraries. This is Parker s fourth show at the Nutley Public Library. For more information about this exhibit stop by the library or contact Parker at 973-6673788 or rapcom aol.com.

HOUSE WANTED Norcia to nudge NJMC to sell meadows parcels North Arlington Mayor Peter Massa has appointed Councilman Peter Norcia to serve as special liaison between the borough and the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission on issues concerning redevelopment. Massa said the borough is seeking a closer working relationship with the NJMC to spur redevelopment in the Meadowlands portion of the community. The mayor said he wants to work with the NJMC to bring closure to the sale of the former Bergen County Utilities Authority trash baler on Disposal Road and of the Bethlehem Steel property. Both sites were remitted to ownership by the NJMC after the EnCap developer went bankrupt. I applaud the efforts that the NJMC has made cleaning up after the EnCap disaster and remediating contaminated sites in the Meadowlands now it s time to move forward to redevelop the area in a positive beneficial way said Massa. In a letter to Marsha Karrow the executive director of the NJMC Massa said he understands that finding buyers for the baler and the former industrial steel making site is not easy in this economy. However the borough would like the opportunity to work with the NJMC to market and sell these sites to qualified buyers and review transportation improvements that will facilitate redevelopment in the Meadowlands. Norcia said he is eager to take on the role of redevelopment liaison between the borough and the NJMC. There are developable properties controlled by the NJMC and adjacent to commission properties that can bring tax ratables to the borough and jobs for our residents and I want to do anything I can to make sure redevelopment potential becomes development reality said Norcia. EnCap is in the rear view mirror it s time to embrace a better future for the borough added Norcia. THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 10 2013 29 OBITS from 25 lison.
