Top StoriesMcKenzie School in E. Rutherford marks 100 years

By Chris Neidenberg / Reporter

EAST RUTHERFORD (Sept. 23, 2010) — Other borough public schools have come and gone over the past 100 years, but one special spot on Carlton Avenue has stood the test of time.

McKenzie School conducted its centennial celebration Thursday, Sept. 16 during a special assembly attended by roughly 200 pupils. Though lasting about an hour, four pupils, conducting the special presentation with help from the East Rutherford Historical Society, tried offering enough snapshots of the school’s rich history to adequately span the period.

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.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: ER should reclaim land

(Sept. 23, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Finally, East Rutherford is negotiating to reclaim our land from the new stadium owners (Jets and Giants) and recoup our tax loss when the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority took over. As an East Rutherford resident and taxpayer, I ask “what would prevent us from reclaiming our land. Why must we fight for something that is rightfully ours?”

With new income derived from just this one huge property, our local police can maintain a full force police. With additional manpower, new jobs would be created and our town would grow again. Property owners would benefit with new lower taxes, full services — not to mention our school and municipal budgets would be back to reality.

So, I ask “how do we reclaim our land?” East Rutherford citizens stay on top of this and unite to fight for what is rightfully ours. Ask questions, seek answers. Don’t let this slip by. Communicate with our local politicians and voice your concerns.

Carole J. Cosentino / East Rutherford

Top StoriesLocal center features sound healing

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

EAST RUTHERFORD (Aug. 26, 2010) — Window browsing down Park Avenue in East Rutherford, one may have no idea what to make of it — a predominantly empty store front with a collection of drums, crystal bowls, chimes and synthesizers lining the back — nothing but open space in between. Most may very well shrug and walk on, but for those who step inside the Self Awareness & Transformation Center they’re in for as unique an experience as they’re likely to find anywhere in the area.

Breaking NewsOfficials fear the door is left open for a ‘mini-city’ by the complex


By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

HACKENSACK (Aug. 19, 2010, 10:55 a.m.) — If it were up to most of the public officials in the South Bergen area, housing would be taken off the suggestion list for the future of the Meadowlands Sports Complex. But, realistically, is “a mini-city with 5 million square feet of housing” an option for the tract of land in the eastern portion of East Rutherford?

Jon F. Hanson, who heads Gov. Chris Christie’s advisory commission on gaming, sports and entertainment throughout the state, recently spoke of the financial advantages of adding a housing component in the Meadowlands, according to news reports. His comments, and the conceptual plans to privatize some of the public assets at the complex, such as the racetrack and IZOD Center, prompted Bergen County Freeholder Bernadette McPherson to draft a resolution calling for the abandonment of “any plan for housing in the Meadowlands.”
