Breaking NewsThis man plays games at work … and doesn’t get in trouble

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

LYNDHURST (Sept. 27, 2010) — In a small office in a large building off Chubb Avenue in Lyndhurst, Edward Di Geronimo shoots aliens and walks on ceilings. For this 29-year-old Fair Lawn resident, defying gravity and using powerful weapons as a means of defense in the solar system is all in a day’s work.

And he’s one of the few workers in the labor force who can play games at his computer and get away with it.

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

LYNDHURST (Sept. 23, 2010) — Officers with the Lyndhurst Police Department fired bullet after bullet into a dirt hillside just off the Belleville Turnpike Monday, Sept. 20. The first shots came from 40-caliber side arms, the second set from shotguns.

Sports SceneBecton blanks Bears, keeps coveted trophy

By W.L. Bill Allen Jr. / Special to The Leader

EAST RUTHERFORD (Sept. 23, 2010) — There are still, quite clearly, many, many ... many things that are yet to be worked out in the brand-new North Jersey Athletic Conference.

Not the least of which is the dearth (and almost death) of the previously plentiful, traditional and very much beloved slate of Turkey Day games, a list which, for many, many years has included Lyndhurst facing Becton Regional with possession of the venerated Hall of Fame Bowl Trophy for the ensuing year on the line.

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

Top StoriesLyndhurst to welcome The Rat Pack

By Jennifer Vazquez / Reporter

LYNDHURST (Sept. 16, 2010) — That sharp-as-a-knife, jovial entertainment ... that genuine, unapologetic show business that entices all who witness it ... that embodiment of the quintessential group of longtime friends, incomparable entertainers and revolutionary talent ... that grand fixture of stages throughout the 1960s is on the brink of hitting the stage again.

Sort of.

The Rat Pack, home to the iconic Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin, are ready to belt out classics in our own backyard. Granted that it might not be the original dynamic trio who is set to perform at the Lyndhurst Elks Lodge on Saturday, Oct. 9, however, the impersonators of these legends are uncanny mirror images of the entertainers they play.

Other NewsA message from Mazur's

(Sept. 16, 2010) — I’m Joe Spiekermann, owner of Mazur’s Bakery in Lyndhurst. About 30 years ago, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Like so many of us I still love sweets, so I developed a sugar-free line of cakes, pies and pastries.

My whipped cream cakes are made with 100-percent pure heavy cream and are sweetened with Splenda. Throughout my research, I found Splenda to be very diabetic friendly. Splenda is a sugar substitute that does not contain aspartame and it saves you additional calories and carbohydrates that sugar typically has.

I recently developed a sugar-free chocolate pudding and vanilla custard that we use as ingredients in our desserts. Please visit the bakery and try some of my products. It would be my pleasure to meet you.

Top StoriesAfter so much heat, did the Lyndhurst pool earn rave reviews?

By Kyle Orlowicz / Reporter

LYNDHURST (Sept. 2, 2010) — On a recent Saturday afternoon, the Lyndhurst community pool, opened to the public since April, is bustling but tranquil. A diverse crowd of around 15 people — nowhere near capacity — shares the large pool without conflict, while parents and spent swimmers look on from the bleachers. Though it may not rival a day at the beach, the brand-new indoor facility provides an affordable daily getaway for a family or individual on a budget.

By W. L. Bill Allen, Jr. / New Jersey Sport/Action

LYNDHURST (Sept. 2, 2010) — The gap between the two most recent conference crowns copped by the boys cross-country contingent from Lyndhurst High School was well over 40 years, as the Golden Bears ran to 2009 Bergen County Scholastic League/National Division after not having garnered a title of any kind since 1965.

Now, the defending champion locals are optimistic that the gap between last year’s crown and the next one will be much, much shorter.
