July 24 2013 www.theobserver.com Vol CXXVI No. 9 COVERING BELLEVILLE BLOOMFIELD EAST NEWARK HARRISON KEARNY LYNDHURST NORTH ARLINGTON NUTLEY Hudson nets 589 guns in buyback Hudson County residents turned in a total of 589 firearms during the state-sponsored gun buyback held July 12-13 N.J. Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman announced last week. The program was part of an ongoing effort by N.J. authorities to stem gun violence by allowing residents to turn in up to three weapons per person no questions asked at designated sites. Those who handed over guns were paid up to 250 per weapon. The Hudson County collection sites were Mount Carmel Church in Bayonne Evangelismos Greek Orthodox Church in Jersey City and St. Anthony of Padua Church in Union City. Prior to the buyback The Observer inquired as to why there was no collection point in West Hudson. In an email a spokesman for the Attorney General s Office stated In each of the buybacks we ve done around the state -- including this latest one . . . -the actual host locations are recommended by county and local officials. The July 12-13 program in Hudson was held simultaneously with one in Union County where 1 010 guns were collected -- bringing the combined total to 1 599.

Fishman announced. The defendant Christina Nunez 30 previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Esther Salas to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribution of 500 grams or more of cocaine and one count of mail theft authorities said. Salas imposed the prison sentence July 17 in Newark Federal Court. In June Nunez husband Luis A. Vega 37 was sentenced to 37 months for his role in distributing the cocaine-laden packages. According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court Since December 2010 Nunez had been receiving packages of cocaine which were mailed from Puerto Rico to delivery addresses along her mail route. Nunez would intercept the packages scan them as delivered -- despite never delivering the packages to the delivery addresses -- and ultimately transport them to conspirators in Camden. In February 2011 U.S. Postal Service inspectors seized approximately 1 300 grams of cocaine from an Express Mail see COCAINE page 201-991-1300 KEARNY OFFICE 213 Kearny Ave Kearny New Jersey C21Semiaokearny Century21.com 21 201-460-8000 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 13 C21Semiao Century21.com TO SEECENTURY 21 HAS GONE MOBILE OUR AD THIS WEEK PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 24 23 02 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 24 2013 How can you resist these loving creatures West Hudson Publishing Company s Fastest Growing Free Weekly Newspaper Established 1887 Family Owned & Operated By Karen Zautyk Observer Correspondent LYNDHURST T Mary Tortoreti President Robert Pezzolla General Manager 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 39 Seeley Ave. Kearny N.J. 07032 Phone 201-991-1600 Fax 201-991-8941 www.theobserver.com ucked beneath some green awnings at 221223 Stuyvesant Ave. is a storefront that some might mistake for a pet shop. And indeed it does sell pet supplies. But when you walk through the door you are entering a special world filled with the kind of unconditional love that pet owners know that cats and dogs can offer to their human caretakers. It s also a little world filled with the kind of joy frisky pups and purring kitties provide. This is the local headquarters for the Humane Society of Bergen County. It is not its literature notes an animal shelter. But there you will find animals for adoption primarily cats and dogs but on occasion other critters. Parrots turtles iguanas snakes and sugar gliders ( a small omnivorous arboreal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass according to Wikipedia) have called the place home until they were adopted. (We would have loved to have seen a sugar glider since we had never even heard of it before.) When we visited recently cats ruled. We have kittens read a sign in the window. And there they were along with adult cats in their own special room which was immaculate. There were about 30 felines in residence Kathy Johnson executive director of the facility told us. The cats kits are housed in 6-foot-long cages each sparkly clean. But the felines basically have the run of the room. Photos by Karen Zautyk Clockwise from l. Kathy Johnson with one of the many kittens up for adoption two of the cats available and Tina a Yorkshire terrier. They re chasing each other around the floor playing with toys perched on cat towers or curled up on top of a cabinet surveying the activity below. In the course of a year Johnson said the Society takes in 100 to 200 dogs and more than 400 cats. The goal is a forever home for all of them sinc this is a no kill facility. Last week there were just six dogs three up for adoption and three in temporary care belonging to a woman who lost her home to Hurricane Sandy Johnson told us. The dog population may have increased since our visit since the Society will take dogs brought in by Animal Control. The Society s newsletter told the story of 10 such pups that were adopted last year after they were abandoned in two cat carriers left in a park in northern Bergen County. There were five small Yorkies and five Toy Miniature poodles. Suspicion is they were discarded by a breeder since the females had evidently had many litters of puppies the newslwtter notes. Tyco Animal Control sought help from the Society which got the dogs the health care they needed got them used to humans (they were frightened of people) and eventually found homes for all 11. (Yes originally there were 10 but one of the poodles turned out to be pregnant and gave birth in Lyndhurst.) It is people like those at the Humane Society of Bergen County Lost Pet Inc. (its official moniker) who counterbalance and compensate for the sort who abandon helpless animals in parks or on the streets or whereever is most convenient to dispose of an inconvenient animal. Johnson told us about one such abandoned creature that was left literally at the Society s front door. Arriving one morning staffers found a huge cage nailed shut with boards on top. What could possibly be inside It was a 9-foot king snake which someone must have tired of. And yes it found a home.

They could be starting to take those calls by sometime in September predicted Fire Chief Steven Dyl. They re undergoing background checks and then they have to go through training. It was in July 2012 that the mayor and Town Council acting on the recommendation of Dyl voted to contract out the emergency response telecommunications duties to the East Orange Fire Department for about 90 000 a year in place of uniformed KFD personnel. However the town abandoned those plans when after having installed the phone lines linking the Fire Department s Maple St. communications center with East Orange discovered that the town was left with an alarming coverage gap thanks to Superstorm Sandy playing havoc with the telecommunications technology. Last Tuesday July 16 the town governing body authorized hiring 15 men and six women as part-time public safety telecommunicator trainees (a non-competitive state Civil Service job title) assigned to the Fire Department to work a maximum of 24 hours per week at the current hourly rate of 15.25. Each will be on probation for 90 days upon starting their jobs. As of last Wednesday though that number had declined by one after a male hiree notified the town he was withdrawing Dyl said. It s unclear at this point whether he ll be replaced. Mayor Alberto Santos said that since the money required to pay the new appointees hasn t been budgeted the council will be asked to approve an emergency appropriation to cover the expense. For a full year the mayor estimated the cost at about 384 000 of which less than half will be needed for the balance of 2013. Ultimately Santos said the town should still see significant savings by not having to pay overtime to firefighter personnel to satisfy minimum staffing levels at the town s four fire companies. The town s current Fire Department roster which will stand at 83 as of Aug. 1 well short of the 102 called for by the KFD Table of Organization. Two dispatchers will be assigned to each 8-hour shift on a rotation basis Santos said. The dispatchers will be supervised by the fire chief or a deputy fire chief he added. The application process yielded many qualified candidates Santos said including many in the mix who have previous experience as dispatchers with different organizations so it looks promising that we ll be able to have a well-trained and knowledgable civilian dispatch center in the Kearny Fire Department. Eight of the 20 dispatchers are retired Kearny firefighters the mayor noted. There won t be a complete disengagement of uniformed services right away Santos said since the Fire Department will need to ensure a smooth transition with appropriate protocols applied by the new employees. The new dispatchers are James Baille Almecia Baskersville Rosemarie Baloga James Carey Stewart Docherty Robert Grusenski Barry Hruby Charles Kerr Josephine Love-Lofflin Kim Luciano-Alfieri Brian McCurrie Margaret Moore Alex Penelva Joseph Piumelli Riboberto Rivera Joseph Rizzolo Stephen Taylor Andrew Taylor Jr. Douglas Tilley and Diane Tilley. Meanwhile the Fire Department is faced with an increasing attrition rate in its ranks from retirements (the most recent being Capt. Michael Karlok looking to leave Aug. 1) while at the same time Santos said the town is struggling with higher expenses but reduced revenues. Nonetheless he said the town is committed to hiring more firefighters but they re finding that problematic. Our original [Civil Service appointment] list of 30 [candidates] is down to one Santos said. Some didn t respond some didn t pass background checks we ve never had this kind of experience before. Santos said the town is hoping to hire more cops possibly by next month. How many I don t know he added. What is known is that several municipal departments will be getting some parttime help and as a result will be better equipped to help the public. These new hires were approved by the mayor and council last week and they are as follows Finance Miriam Seda will be payroll clerk Daisy Solari will be a cashier in the tax collector s office and Elizabeth Blevis will assist the CFO with different projects. Urban Enterprise Zone Fatima Oliveira will split her time between UEZ and tax assessor. Construction Code Maria Quinteros will be a clerk typist. Health Catherine Quintana will be a bilingual clerk typist and assist with programs.

Borough enacts long-term financing plan I NORTH ARLINGTON n a move that the Democratic majority says will save taxpayers money in the long run the North Arlington mayor and Borough Council voted July 11 to convert more than 7.6 million in short-term bond anticipation notes to a longterm bond before interest rates begin climbing. Borough officials said the action will roll the current temporary financing of 25 different capital improvement projects into one bond that will spread interest costs over 14 years. Payments of principal [would] start Aug. 15 at 350 000 then go to 700 000 in 2019 drop to 650 000 in 2025 and 609 000 in 2027 said borough spokesman Thom Ammirato. Although the interest rate won t be known for sure until the bonds are sold Council President Al Granell who chairs the finance committee predicted that There will be considerable savings in interest and fees as we go from short-term notes that have to be renewed every year to [permanent financing]. The two Republicans on the council Rich Hughes and Joseph Bianchi voted against the bond resolution not over the strategy of going to long-term financing but in opposition to getting the document at the 11th hour. It s the correct thing to do Bianchi said but let me read it first. We got the resolution] 10 minutes before the meeting. It was 15 pages long and all those bonds. I just wanted a chance to read it. The council president [Granell] never warned us we were going to get it. The Democrats kept us in the dark about it. There was no reason to rush. If we d gone into closed session for say 30 minuts we could ve heard about it and we [Republicans] probably would ve approved it. 04 THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 24 2013 the money to outstanding debt. However based on a part of the ordinance that he managed to read Bianchi wondered why the borough which had co-bonded 500 000 with Lyndhurst on the Joint Sewer Commission to buy new sewage pumps didn t apply the 250 000 it received from the N.J. Meadowlands Commission to pay off its share of the bond. The borough applied that money somewhere else and we wanted to know why but our bond counsel couldn t answer. Democrats said it made sense to go to long-term financing because the shortterm notes have interest rates that reset each year at the market interest rate prevailing when the notes are sold. And they said constant reauthorization of the notes Granell said the council puts the borough at risk needed to act now because because it cannot lock in a interest rates have been low interest rate and it must gradually ticking up in repay additional thousands of cent weeks. dollars in professional fees The council cannot afford associated with the annual to dawdle on this financing short-term borrowing. plan the longer we wait the The borough has two more it will cost the taxpay- temporary bond anticipaers Granell said.

Money and convenience are the two factors governing the township s decision to go this route according to Township Manager Kevin Esposito. We expect to achieve a savings of 483 000 over the next two years by going with the same vendor for pickups of both regular household trash and recyclables Esposito said. The Township Council voted on May 14 to award Suburban Disposal of Fairfield a one-year contract with an option for two one-year renewal options. Suburban the lone bidder when bids for scavenger refuse services and for recycling services were received on May 2 will be paid 767 000 for the first year for regular trash collections with options to continue for two more years at the same annual price. And Suburban will get 209 000 for recyclable pickups for the first year with an option to renew at 219 000 for the second and third years. A Residential Guide to Single-Stream Recycling published by the township advises residents that under the new system all recyclables are placed in the same recycle bin aluminum and metal cans newspapers cartons books plastic bottles paper bags Photos by Ron Leir Separating recyclables in Belleville will be a thing of the past starting Aug. 1. paperboard cardboard (flatten all boxes) steel tin cans and empty aerosol cans glass bottles and jars magazines and catalogs and office and paper junk mail. Residents are reminded not to package recyclables in plastic bags. Residents should refrain from placing in their recyclable bin any trash plastic bags scrap metal needles or syringes plastic microwave trays Styrofoam organic material and food waste electronic waste (batteries cell phones computers etc.) paint pesticides oil and cleansers light bulbs medical waste hazardous materials auto parts or motor oil containers. Recyclables will be picked up on Wednesdays only. Residents are asked to place their recyclables at curbside on Tuesdays after 5 p.m. Recyclable bins should be no heavier than 50 pounds. Leaves grass and compost will be collected separately in paper leaf bags at curbside on the designated leaf and brush pickup day listed on the township s recycling calendar. Calendars are available at the Public Works Department 429 Stephens St. or may be viewed on the township website www.bellevillenj.org. Owners of multi-dwelling buildings will be held responsible for their tenants compli- ance with recycling regulations. Offenders who fail to comply can expect to receive a summons and if found guilty a fine officials said. Belleville it turns out is going with the flow on singlestream strategy said state Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Bob Considine. While the state agency lets municipalities choose how to collect recyclables we can safely tell you [full commingling] is a trend Considine said. Single stream is now the norm in most counties as the public and private recycling center operators have been converting their processing operations over to this method over the past couple of years.

No easy thing indeed after so much enmity in the region and blood spilled. But reasonable adults can find a way to agree for the sake of peace. In Russia meanwhile the recent conviction and sentencing of dissident Aleksei Navalny who was found innocent by a court of allegations that he stole from a timber company reminds us how the Putin regime treats those who dare speak out against officially-sanctioned corruption. It should also remind us that our country s democratic process skewed though it is in favor of the banks and big corporations still affords its citizens with an opportunity for due process and the right to be heard without facing the likely prospect of time behind bars. And despite the operations of secret FISA courts in the U.S. the New Jersey Supreme Court has offered some solace to privacy advocates with its majority ruling that law enforcement agencies must first secure a warrant before asking Verizon to track a suspect through his or her cell phone transmissions. Meanwhile where is the Congress headed with plans for immigration reform On the one hand one version of the bill being considered proposes to loosen current visa restrictions for foreign students for those highly-skilled and for agricultural workers for example and would create a 13-year path to citizenship for those living here since prior to 2012. Advocates say these measures will boost our economy by allowing the government to collect substantial new tax revenues from the influx of prospective new citizens. On the other hand the bill would double the length of the security wall across our southern border and double the number of security agents allegedly ensuring a 90% capture rate of those looking to enter the U.S. illegally. Conservatives are against the provisions of the bill that would extend citizenship opportunities to those currently here without the proper documents saying that is unfair to those who were born overseas and went through proper channels to establish themselves here legally. But America has always been a beacon to those living in developing countries or in lands where poverty is the daily norm. Should we now be thinking of closing our doors to those aspiring to make a better life for themselves and their families Compared to the rest of the world we are still a young country and still puzzling over how to interact with our neighbors in an ever-shrinking globe. And we are still a democratic republic with many of the republic s virtues though not perfect still intact. Let us endeavor to live up to those ideals as best we can in an imperfect world.

The underpinning of both references is the precept that a board president can only be recalled for refusing to carry out the duties of the office. Not one of the members who voted against Mrs. McDonald cited even one instance of her refusal to carry out her duties -- NOT ONE So on what did Mr. King base his resolution Was it the tone of her voice the wording of an email or his personal opinion of her attitude Hardly objective I respectfully suggest that the difficulties between Superintendent Ferraro and President McDonald are not uncommon in the education community and that as two reasonable adults given time and opportunity they could have quietly and privately worked through them. The public dressing down of a woman who over the past 12 years has dedicated countless hours to our children and our schools served no purpose except to demean her. Much to her credit Bernadette stayed above the fray and is now pursuing legal measures to rectify the situation. Mr. King s resolution and the subsequent vote did nothing to remedy the situation. On the contrary it has deepened the wedge between the two factions of the board. It certainly has not helped the relationship between Mrs. McDonald and Superintendent Ferraro. The time and effort expended on this issue would have been better spent on the important challenges facing our schools. In addition it has prompted litigation the defense of which will prove futile and costly to the Kearny Board of Education. Good job guys Barbara Cifelli-Sherry Kearny THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 24 2013 07 KPD blotter 100 degrees 106 calls A t 7 a.m. last Wednesday July 17 the Kearny Police Department logged its 15 000th job for 2013. By 7 a.m. July 18 the tally was 15 106. That represents more than 100 calls for aid in a 24-hour period and during one of the hottest 24 hours of the year. Don t fret. We re not going to list all the reports here. Suffice it to say they ran the gamut from burglar alarms going off to disorderly conduct to medical emergencies --many heat-related to motor vehicle offenses accidents to criminal mischief. Etc. Along with one bizarre threat to hold a bicycle hostage. Not a bicyclist. A bicycle. At 5 p.m. July 17 nearly midway through the hectic span Officer Chris Levchak was on patrol on Belgrove Drive near Washington School when he was alerted by a resident that a group of youths had just stolen two bikes from their property. Levchak spotted two teenagers who were riding bikes on Highland Ave. who ignored his request to stop and who attempted to elude him police said. He caught them at Wilson Ave. and Belgrove. The victim and witnesses to the theft came to the scene and identified one of the bicycles as having been stolen. Taken into custody were two Newark youths aged 16 and 17 both of whom were charged with theft defiant trespass and conspiracy. The older teen also was charged with possession of burglary tools after bolt cutters--like those used to sever the bikes locks--were found in his backpack police said. The two were taken to headquarters for processing and their parents were notified. But that still left one bike missing. At 7 p.m. Officer Jay Ward stopped a group of cyclists at Passaic Ave. and Belgrove Drive. They included a 19-year-old Newark female Nyasia Wheeler who when confronted reportedly admitted the bike she was riding had been stolen. However according to Police Chief John Dowie Wheeler told Ward she would not surrender the bicycle until her brother--one of those arrested earlier--was released. Ward informed her that we do not conduct business in that manner Dowie said and placed her under arrest for receiving stolen property. Brother and sister were reunited at HQ.

The list will expire Feb. 14 2014. With Police Chief John Holland ready to retire in November Strumolo is viewed by many in the department as ultimately the logical successor to Holland. But in a notice of claim filed against the township and the mayor Strumolo alleged that Petracco has set several roadblocks to the deputy chief slot ever since Strumolo refused to engage in certain union-busting activities which Strumolo alleged Petracco wanted him to carry out. Outside the Municipal Building the Nutley PBA with help from the Teamsters union set up the giant rat (which has come to be a popular icon at labor demonstrations) along the driveway entrance so the mayor had to drive past it when he arrived for the commission meeting. This rally is about [recognition of] fairness merit and hard work Nutley PBA President Gerard Tusa said. We in the Police Department strive to set examples of that and when government wants to make promotions based on politics it hurts us and the public. You don t put in decades of work only to be told because you don t vote for a certain person you don t deserve the job. You can t have a good department without a solid leader and if our leader can be compromised where do we stand Referring to the mayor s rationale that he was looking for ways to economize in prior proposals to replace the deputy chief rank with an additional captain or to hire Photos by Ron Leir Inflatable rat and protestors greeted Nutley commissioners before last week s meeting. At right PBA President Gerard Tusa talks to media. BELWEDER DELI P O L I S H - A M E RI C A N D E L I a civilian director instead of hiring a new chief Tusa said This isn t about money. None of this is going to put money back in taxpayers pockets. Tusa said he hoped the rally incurs enough interest for the public to put pressure on our elected officials to let the Civil Service procedure work. That s why we re a Civil Service town. If you come out No. 1 [on a C.S. test] you should expect to be promoted to that position. Among the orderly group of civilians who came out to offer support for the PBA and Strumolo were retiree Joe Castellano and his wife Lillian. You work all your career the right way and when it comes time to be rewarded it s taken away. That s not right Joe Castellano said. Off-duty police officers from in and out of Nutley also attended the rally and were among the many observers who later packed the assembly chambers for the commission meeting including Chief Holland and his predecessor retired Chief Robert DeLitta. Neither spoke at the meeting but DeLitta in a June 30 letter to Tusa warned that appointing a civilian director in place of a chief would spell disaster for the Nutley Police Department because the department would become saturated with politics. And he said following Civil Service procedure is important because ... denying a deserving officer s promotional opportunities can be devastating to the organization. At the meeting the audience didn t have to wait long for a dramatic confrontation when Tusa the first public speaker accused the mayor of manipulation in an effort ... to promote friends and allies and to prevent Strumolo from becoming deputy chief Petracco responded Let s cut to the chase. You re accusing me of trying to manipulate the system. Tell me who I m favoring Which one replied Tusa drawing cheers and applause from the heavily partisan crowd. Come on Petracco tried again. Name the names. Tusa said he mentioned only Strumolo because that [Civil Service promotional] list [for deputy chief] is the only one still alive so to name anyone further wouldn t be relevant. Still Petracco pressed on. Who am I trying to reach And why didn t you fight for your captains Aren t they your members too Tusa said he would never turn down an opportunity for the department to get new members to protect the town. Cheers from the spectators greeted this pronouncesee PETRACCO page 14 TOO HOT TO COOK LET US COOK FOR YOU TRY OUR HOME COOKED MEALS CATERING FOR ALL OCCASIONS I VE NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY MY HUMAN WON T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT HER LEASH.

Not long afterward the chambers fell silent when Police Lt. John Ryan approached the microphone to announce I d like the opportunity to test for the [chief s] position.

Without a doubt having pitching in line is important in the postseason Voza said. This team was built for the postseason. I told the kids in April that I needed them to be pitchers in the postseason. Maybe they might get an inning here or there in relief but it s important because we play practically every day. The postseason began Sunday with Lyndhurst Post 139 securing a 2-1 victory over Sussex in the first round of the District 1 tourney. Bobby Miskura pitched a three-hit complete game for the locals and drove in a key run as well. It s important to get quality pitching now because the games are nine innings not seven innings like the regular season. There lies the reason to have as much quality pitching as possible. Believe me there s a big difference between seven and nine innings for a pitching staff Voza said. You can have your three best pitchers lined up for the first three games but that s not enough. You need pitchers to throw nine innings for five games in a week. That s why we have the kids we have on the team. We knew we were going to need kids to pitch. Part of Voza s coaching background comes from his days as an assistant to Jeff Albies at William Paterson University. Albies had a rule that the pitchers pitch and the hitters hit Voza said. I ve adopted that philosophy with this team. Voza said that before the American Legion season he had a meeting with Willie Krajnik the Lyndhurst native who will be a senior at St. Mary s of Rutherford this fall. I told Krajnik who is one of our better pitchers that he might not see a lot of action in the regular season Voza said. But once we got through the regular season and got to the tournament he would see a lot of action. Krajnik is expected to see VIEW page Photo courtesy Lisa O Neill The Nutley East Little League 12-year-old All-Stars are headed for the state championships this week.

The catcher is Ryan O Mara who has an affectionate nickname. We call him Turtle because he doesn t run fast O Neill said. But he s a tremendous kid. O Mara hit a clutch homer in the win over Hoboken. He s as steady as a rock and gives his maximum effort every time O Neill said of O Mara. Lotito is the team s regular first baseman. He s our No. 4 hitter who drives in a lot of runs O Neill said.

The shortstop duties are shared between Josh O Neill and Lopez depending upon who s pitching. They re both key hitters for us O Neill said. Peter is our leadoff hitter and Josh bats third. The third baseman is Aidan Okamoto-Wolf who has been a true leader in the postseason. He s a very solid defensive player who keeps getting better and better O Neill said. He s grown every day as a hitter. Okamoto-Wolf has hit .657 this postseason with an astounding five homers two of which have been game winners. Left field duties are shared by Jack Christman and Jim Quinn. Lopez or Caraballo play centerfield. O Neill depends a lot on Lopez. No kid works harder than Peter O Neill said. In centerfield he defends with perfection. I ve never seen a kid get a better jump on the ball. He has an unbelievable first step. Jeremy Kraft is the starting right fielder. He bats fifth in the order. Blayke Alvarez a second baseman outfielder is another key reserve as is Natalia Bascunan. Yes the Nutley East AllStars have a girl on the team perhaps the lone team in the state finals to have a girl on its roster. She s a joy to have on the team O Neill said. She does everything you ask.

So much that she wants to stay a step ahead of her twin brothers who are seven. We have a 10-foot basket at home so I can practice my shooting said Natalie a Jefferson School student. I have practiced hard on my shooting and I feel like I m getting better. Natalie wanted to continue her improvement so she attended the Kearny Girls Basketball Camp recently at Kearny High School. Natalie attended the camp last year and had such a good time that she made sure she attended the camp directed by Kearny High head girls basketball coach Jody Hill for another year. Nearly 100 young ladies spent a week learning more about basketball and having a little bit of fun at the same time. And this camp was strictly for and about girls. No boys allowed. It really helps me a lot said 11-year-old Olivia Montenino who attends Roosevelt School. I have two brothers at home and this gets me away from them. If you have boys here they re always hogging the ball and tell you that you can t play because you re a girl. Olivia said that she was able to work on her shooting and defense at the camp. She obviously wasn t alone. I think it was great that we had such a great turnout Hill said. I know some girls told me that they were really looking forward to it.

I think Photo by Jim Hague As Kearny High School head coach Jody Hill (far l.) looks on Meagan McClelland (l.) and Emily Angeles display some of their ball handling skills at the annual Kearny High School Girls Basketball Camp recently the fact that the numbers are so high it means that a lot of girls are interested and want to play. Hill said that she had to make a tough call in limiting the camp to strictly girls. I think the decision I made to separate the girls and the boys was a good one because the girls like that aspect Hill said. They re able to get some confidence and don t have to worry about that intimidation factor. They re put in an environment that they re used to and I can see the difference in the way they handle everything. Hill said that she has received great support from local organizations and teams like Sacred Heart of Lyndhurst. A lot of these teams have spread the word and other girls have come Hill said. You get to see some of the same faces every year and that s great to see. I like to think that these girls are taking some of the skills they learn and working on their game on their own. story continues next page THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 24 2013 19 Hill said that she was impressed with some of the up-and-coming talented players.

Sydney is a soccer and softball player much like her sisters but for the week she concentrated on her basketball skills. It s tough to juggle all three sports but I m managing Sydney said. This camp helps me a lot with basketball. I ve been working on my left hand because it s my weaker hand. But this camp helped me get better.

Sandra DaSilva is another 14-year-old who will enter Kearny High in September. I m really looking forward to it Sandra said. I m very excited about it. I ve been playing basketball for two years now and this was my first year at camp. It was the best experience for me. Since she is a potential point guard Sandra concentrated on point guard skills. Shooting and ball handling are important for me Sandra said. This has totally prepared me to get ready to play later this year. I think the future looks really bright Hill said. There are a lot of good seventh and eighth grade players here. We have a whole new group coming up and I can see already it s going to be a really nice group. Which is another advantage of having a girls only camp. You can see firsthand what the future has in store.

What are you to do when that mishap includes your child s tooth When your children participate in an activity that can involve contact protect them with an appropriate mouth guard because prevention is always the easiest way to avoid or lessen an injury. Now for those injuries that cannot be avoided Teeth that have been knocked out. If it is a baby tooth you are in luck Just bring your child to their dentist to ensure that there are no pieces of the broken tooth remaining. If it is an adult tooth pick it up by the top of the tooth not the root end and rinse it with clean water. Do not scrub the tooth because that will limit the ability for the tooth to be reattached. Place the tooth in gauze tissue soaked in your child s saliva milk or water because it is important to keep the tooth moist and then get to a dentist within the hour. These steps will increase the chance for reattachment of the tooth. These types of accidents happen all the time and to people of all ages but armed with a bit of knowledge and some luck you can have that tooth that was knocked out of your mouth put back in and functioning for years to come.

In Hudson County the illegal weapons turned in included an Uzi a Savage Arms 12-gauge shotgun and a Universal Firearms M1 30-caliber military-style rifle authorities reported. Hoffman noted that the Hudson Union program helped N.J. reach a new milestone . . . 14 000 firearms taken out of circulation since we began the statewide initiative. That s 14 000 fewer weapons out there to be used in a crime or to claim someone s life in a tragic accident he commented.

Photo courtesy nj.gov Guns collected in Hudson County are displayed by law enforcement agents. The firearms collected in both Hudson and Union counties were on view at the Jersey City press conference and Hoffman termed the display truly sobering. It brings home viscerally why these gun buybacks are so important . . . Hoffman said. Were it not for our buyback all of these firearms -- the vast majority of them operable -- would still be out there with the potential to be stolen to fall tragically into the hands of a curious child or to be stashed in a central location and used by criminals as so-called community guns. The Hudson buyback was a cooperative effort involving the Hudson County Prosecutor s Office the state Division of Criminal Justice the Hudson County Sheriff s Office the N.J. State Police the Bayonne Jersey City and Union City police departments and the faith-based community. Said Hudson County Acting Prosecutor Gatano T. Gregory The office is grateful to its dedicated partners in the faith civic governmental and law enforcement sectors who contribute unselfishly to programs such as this in an effort to secure the safety of the people of the county. As with the previous stateled buybacks guns in Hudson County were purchased using criminal forfeiture funds provided by the Attorney General s Office through its Division of Criminal Justice. The Hudson County Prosecutor s Office also provided forfeiture funds and CarePoint Health donated money to support the program. For the two-day Hudson event a total of 82 775 was expended in authorities said. What we ve found is that these buybacks both energize and galvanize communities and they help to build a bond of trust between neighborhoods and law enforcement Hoffman said. All of this can only help as we move forward and in the future continue to address not only the gun violence issue but other public safety concerns as well.

For example Dressel added We ve heard of a number of communities working with [the Elizabeth-based contractor] Waste Management. This seems to be one company that s been aggressive in pushing this. Marie Arucan executive director of the Association of New Jersey Recyclers agreed that single stream is more cost effective for municipalities but added that s only if you have a material processing facility to manage the separation of the recyclables at the receiving end. Arucan said the recycling industry s technology has adapted to market demand but you have to keep educating people on putting the right stuff into the recyclable bins. Contamination is still an issue because it screws 05 up the manufacturing process on the other end [converting recyclables into other products]. For example Arucan said there are seven or eight different types of plastics but the manufacturers can t use them all. Milk and soda bottles are preferred by material recovery facilities. And although China has a growing demand for recyclables the country has put up a green fence it will send back a lot of materials because of contamination Arucan said. Longtime local civic activist Vincent Frantantoni who often raises concerns about township government decisions credits Belleville for the change in recycling operations. Other towns have been doing it for years Frantantoni said. A few years back Councilwoman [Marie Strumolo] Burke was complaining that the town looks like hell and that s because people were putting garbage out every day because of the different days for different types of recyclables. Bloomfield has residents put out recyclables and household garbage out on the same day and that s a more efficient way of doing it he said. Designating one day a week for picking up all recyclables at once is better from a sanitary standpoint Frantantoni said. Now you won t have to keep food containers around for two weeks before disposing of them. I m in favor of [the new policy] he said. I can finally give the [Township] Council an A on this. I ve been giving them Ds and Fs on everything else. Currently the township schedules pickups of bottles and cans every two weeks as it does for paper and cardboard. Collection days are keyed to each of five residential zones.

E THE OBSERVER WEDNESDAY JULY 24 2013 HUMANE from 02 stipends Johnson noted. We survive totally on donations. Which makes the work the Lyndhurst facility does even more impressive. Along with its pet adoption service it maintains an animal help and info line offers pet spay neuter assistance for owners in financial distress lists and matches lost-found pets provides help with wildlife rescue and promotes public education among other things. After Hurricane Sandy for instance the Lyndhurst Humane sent supplies to shelters down the Shore that had been damaged or destroyed. All of this is thanks to donations including annual memberships in the registered nonprofit charity and money raised from adoption fees (which help cover the costs of vet care for the adoptables). All the cats Johnson said are at least 10 weeks old and have been spayed or neutered tested for diseases and been given all their shots. Vet care for the dogs depends on the age breed and what needs to be done she said. The Society is careful about who is permitted to adopt. Applications are required. And in the case of dogs so is a home visit to ensure that the canine is going to a clean safe environment. The Lyndhurst facility is also dependent on volunteers who clean the cages feed the animals walk the dogs and go to ShopRite when pet food is on sale Johnson said with a smile. The vols stock the shelves in the Kindness Korner (the on-site pet supply store) featuring food toys anti-flea meds collars and everything to keep a pet content. It even has the Thundershirt a doggy wrap that can calm a canine that is frightened of thunder fireworks and other loud noises. The Humane Society also offers dog food canned and dry available to anyone who due to unemployment disability or any other financial dificulty cannot afford to feed their dog. It was that little notice appearing regularly in The Observer s Around Town column that led us to visit the Stuyvesant Ave. site to learn more about such a caring organization. The free food is funded by donations too which come from animal hospitals and a prime donor the Bergen County Association of Realtors which collects contributed pet food in front of supermarkets. (It also collects human food for food pantries.) Good Realtors Anyone who would like to donate pet food or other items can pick up a list of sought supplies (which range from litter to tissues to bottled water) at the Stuyvesant Ave. headquarters.

Police Karen Zautyk Ready.gov business Keeping tabs on local veterans residents to better serve needs Nutley Commissioner Steven Rogers announced today that he has completed his mission to visit the home of every veteran in town 957 in all. It took about a year to knock on all those doors. But we did it he said. The commissioner said that approximately 300 veterans were not at home so he left a note letting them know that he stopped by to see them. He also said that of the 957 veterans and widows his department reached out to about 167 received some kind of assistance from the public affairs department. Dan Jacoby who directs the Nutley Department of Military and Veterans Affairs Bureau reported that a number of veterans needed assistance with processing them into the VA medical care counseling physical therapy and other assistance. We were able to save some veterans up to 3 000a year in prescription costs said Jacoby. Jacoby added I am sure that there are a number of veterans in town that we are not aware of. Some of them we found along our routes. If they did not hear from us I encourage them to call our department. He also said that he and the commissioner spoke to at least 100 widows of veterans who needed some kind of assistance. We are encouraging Nutley veterans to join the VFW AMVETS American Legion DAV and Women s Auxiliary because these organizations will provide continuous representation and assistance to them said Rogers. Rogers said that a new walking tour is in the works. I will be announcing that one in a few weeks he said. The commissioner says that while serving as a Commander in the U.S. Navy he made it a point to visit hundreds of sailors asking them one question How are you doing From that one four-word question I learned more about their quality of life their feelings about their leaders and their needs than I did from any other source he added. He said he is now employing that same policy here in Nutley and will visit every resident s home in for the next 18 months for the purpose of seeking an answer to that same question he asked those sailors a few years ago How are you doing It is important for me as an elected official to know how I can best serve the people. So whatever is on a resident s mind with regard to their quality life or other matters of importance to them they can let me know. Perhaps in some way I can be of help he said.
