Breaking NewsHoly Cross Mausoleum to add 6,100 more spaces

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

NORTH ARLINGTON (Sept. 23, 2010) — Archbishop John J. Myers presided over a groundbreaking and blessing ceremony at Holy Cross Chapel Cemetery in North Arlington Saturday, Sept. 18. The special event, held on the north side of the grounds, marks the beginning of the mausoleum’s expansion.

First constructed in 1979, the mausoleum originally consisted of 6,100 crypt spaces. After a series of three additions, the mausoleum now holds 29,000 spaces. With most of those spaces either in use or reserved, 6,100 additional spaces will be added with the expansion — making it one of the largest such structures in the country.

North ArlingtonNA’s Roosevelt School, a Blue Ribbon winner

NORTH ARLINGTON (Sept. 23, 2010) — North Arlington Superintendent of Schools Oliver Stringham recently reported that the secretary of the United States Department of Education has announced that Roosevelt Elementary School is a National Blue Ribbon Award Winner.

“What an honor for our staff, students, families, community and school district,” Stringham stated. “The award honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools whose students achieve at very high levels or have made significant progress and helped close gaps in achievement especially among disadvantaged and minority students. It is the pinnacle of acknowledgment of success from the United States Department of Education. One could liken this to being inducted into the Hall of Fame — only better.”

Breaking NewsEDITORIAL: Will there be a candidates forum in North Arlington?

(Sept. 23, 2010) — The Leader and South Bergenite, two weekly publications that cover the Meadowlands area, have been trying for the past few weeks to organize a candidates forum in North Arlington for the upcoming mayoral and council races. In August, the planning stages began with finding the appropriate venue.

Because of the expected turnout in this hotly contested race — featuring three incumbents and three challengers — it became clear early on that a venue in the North Arlington school system would work the best. The seating capacities in the senior center, municipal chambers and other venues in the borough would likely not suffice for a turnout that could number in the hundreds. Queen of Peace was already booked with events.

(Sept. 23, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

In the weeks ahead North Arlington voters will be making an important choice as to who is best suited to serve as our next mayor.

While my decision has been made as to which ticket I’ll be supporting, most residents won’t decide to literally the time they walk to the polling station to cast their vote.

(Sept. 23, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Let’s cut through Pete Massa and Al Granell’s political shanigans for just a moment. These two running mates now want to work with an obscure, Florida-based compny named WSI and explore the possibility of building a garbage incinerator at the bottom of Noel Drive. One day Massa and Granell want to get North Arlington out of the garbage business and the next day, they support burning garbage for a profit.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Burns needs to come clean on housing issue

(Sept. 23, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

North Arlington voters were enlightened in a strange way by a press release submitted by Gary Burns, the Republican candidate for mayor.

In an effort to condemn the WSI idea of building a state-of-the-art, $200-million facility that could employ up to 200 North Arlington residents and yield $1.25 million annually in sustainable income to homeowners, Burns tries to claim that such a proposal would set North Arlington back and threaten the GOP redevelopment plan.

(Sept. 23, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Let’s talk about taxes.

Everywhere I go around North Arlington the big issue is property taxes and for good reason, those controlling the purse strings now just don’t get it.

Taxes are increasing at record proportions. More than Rutherford. More than East Rutherford. More than Carlstadt. Lyndhurst or Wood-Ridge.

Sports SceneQueen of Peace alum excels at Temple

Photo by James Dombrowski

PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 23, 2010) — Queen of Peace graduate John Palumbo (#77) is in his junior red shirt year as a Temple Football Owl. The former high school lineman helped lead a potent Queen of Peace football program under Coach Andy Cerco to a state championship game. Palumbo became the starting center for Temple last season. He was originally the starting guard before Golden moved the 6-foot-6-inch, 320-pound lineman to center. In the above photo, Palumbo, nephew of salon owner Robert Palumbo, points out the defensive scheme to quarterback Chester Stewart. Temple under Golden has in five seasons taken a floundering football program that was on the verge of extinction at the Division 1 Level and turned the Owls into a success. The Owls have started the 2010 season at 3-0, their best start since 1979. Palumbo has been receiving rave reviews at the center position, opening the eyes of professional scouts in the NFL.
