Top StoriesCarlstadt’s River Barge Park ready for phase II

By Kyle Orlowicz / Reporter

CARLSTADT (Sept. 23, 2010) — After a year of construction, all that remains of the old Barge Club in Carlstadt is a towering, steel sign, which reads, “BARGE.”

The transformation of this site — located on the banks of the Hackensack River — from run-down restaurant to pristine public park and marina is almost complete. The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, which oversees the project officially known as “River Barge Park and Boating Center,” recently finished phase one, which included the installation of a new bulkhead, 30-slip marina, boat ramp and kayak and rowing launch points.

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.

Top StoriesThe aftermath of Hurricane Christie

By Jennifer Vazquez / Reporter

(Sept. 9, 2010) — After the loss of so much state aid, New Jersey school districts are facing the reality of their current financial ordeals. To close the gap between their wants and needs, school districts are finding creative ways to fund the coming school year.

The economic hindrance has prompted districts to resort to creative methods in dealing with the lack of funds, according to Frank Belluscio, director of communications for the New Jersey School Boards Association.

Breaking NewsCarlstadt merchant says he was scammed in shady deal

By Chris Neidenberg / Reporter

CARLSTADT (Sept. 2, 2010) — While justice may very well be blind, merchant Ronald Radomski views local police as “blind to the injustice” he has suffered in trying to solve what would seem like a clear-cut $4,000 bad check case.

Radomski, owner of Cutting Techniques, Inc. on Industrial Road in Carlstadt, said the case allegedly involves a New York City man, who, he complained, keeps snubbing his request to pay up without even trying to hide.

By Ray Smith / Reporter

WALLINGTON (Sept. 2, 2010) — Municipalities throughout New Jersey are certainly not immune to budget cuts. With the development of a large municipal public safety complex in East Rutherford, some towns are wondering if cutting costs could be achieved by combining municipal courts.

At the Thursday, Aug. 26 Wallington Borough Council meeting, the five council members in attendance voted unanimously to authorize a municipal court feasibility study.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: A warning to Carlstadt seniors

(Sept. 2, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

It has come to my attention that Carlstadt is considering building senior citizen housing buildings at vacant school sites. As an East Rutherford senior citizen, I would like my neighboring borough to think long and hard about this decision.

East Rutherford’s senior citizen housing project was a welcomed addition to our borough years back. However, I cannot remember how or when it was taken away from us, but our senior housing building is now owned by the county for years now and is used for public housing. Carlstadt seniors — be forewarned.

It sounds like a great idea now, but will it benefit local seniors in the future?

Top StoriesBecton Regional High School scores high marks on HSPA

By Chris Neidenberg / Reporter

EAST RUTHERFORD (Aug. 19, 2010) — For the 2009-10 state High School Proficiency Assessment, Henry P. Becton Regional High School saw the most students achieve “proficient” status in language arts and math since 2005, the district’s regional curriculum director reported.

The findings, released by Melissa Varley, appointed to the post last year to better align curriculum between Becton and its two sending districts, have given school board members reason to hope tools implemented under her watch for improving HSPA performance are working. Passing HSPA is required for graduation.

Top StoriesUnexpected finds in the wetlands

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

(Aug. 12, 2010) — The wildlife of the wetlands in the South Bergen area is quite unpredictable. The local environment, which plays host to a number of avian, fish and mammal species, is never a textbook habitat. When naturalists and staff members of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission make their way through the environs of the Hackensack River, serendipity is the rule rather than the exception.

Recently, Jim Wright, communication officer for the NJMC and contributor to the Meadowlands Blog, encountered what he called a “doubly serendipitous” situation in Carlstadt. While he was accompanying a researcher with the New York Audubon Society at the usual stomping ground for the area’s snowy egrets, an unexpected visitor looked on.
