Wellness campaign, school groups host trio of community events
By Eric Colvin
Residents and visitors from
around the state visited Bay
Head last weekend to enjoy the
borough’s
inaugural
Fall
Festival, which took place in
various locations all over town,
as well as a couple of beloved
annual events — the Shark
Run 5K and the Great Bay
Head Duck Derby.
“It’s a wonderful family day,”
said Gina Davis, of Bay Head.
Mrs. Davis volunteered at,
and ran in, the fifth annual
Shark Run 5K. Hosted by the
Bay Head Home & School
Association, the Shark Run
benefits the Bay Head School,
where Mrs. Davis’ son, Donald,
is a seventh-grader.
“We had a great turnout,”
said
Bay Head’s
Deanna
Finnerty, who volunteered as
part of the Home & School
Association’s Shark Run committee. “We even ran out of
shirts.”
Heather
Haddad,
of
Manhattan, and Christie
Andarsia, of North Brunswick,
came down to the Jersey Shore
to participate in the Shark Run
with friend Michelle Lippert,
of East Brunswick.
The three women said they
saw the race advertised on the
Internet. When asked what
drew the group to Bay Head,
each said they are fond of the
borough in general, and the
race seemed a comfortable distance, in a great area.
“We all wanted to run in a
race together,” Ms. Haddad
said. “It’s a flat course — plus,
it’s near the ocean, and you
can’t beat that.”
Mueller’s Bakery, on Bridge
Avenue, had an even greater
number of people stopping in
than usual on a Saturday
morning.
Dan Pinkerton, of Long
Beach Island, said he made the
trip up the Garden State
Parkway to participate in the
Shark Run with his girlfriend,
Heather Powell, also of the
Long Beach Island area.
“I usually don’t eat a donut
like this,” Ms. Powell joked, as
she stood outside Mueller’s.
“But, it’s OK, because we just
ran in the race.”
As Shark Run finishers
trickled down Bridge Avenue,
other festivities were under way
as part of the much anticipated
event.
“It’s all about getting the
community together,” said
Kathy Jennings, of Brick. Mrs.
Jennings finished second in the
5K.
Mrs. Finnerty said 150 race
participants pre-registered for
the event, and more than 100
people signed up on Saturday.
In total, she said, about 290
people ran the 2010 Shark Run
5K.
Among the top sponsors of
the event were The Hesse
Companies,
of
Atlantic
Highlands; Conover Beyer
Associates, of Manasquan; and
Cornell MedClaim, of New
Providence.
The monies raised from the
5K will go to support the Bay
Head School.
Mrs. Davis said the funds
will be used for whatever the

N.Y., anxiously waited for Chef Looney — a very good friend of Brick’s Cheryl Schwendel —
to finish their “wacky marble” balloons at Bay Head’s Fall Festival on Saturday.
school needs, including classroom activities, assemblies,
technology, field trips and
sports programs.
“It’s a large event,” Mrs.
Davis said, of the Shark Run.
“We [the Bay Head Home &
School Association] do one,
large fundraiser a year.”
“We plan all year,” said Bay
Head Home & School
Association President Diane
Cornell, of the preparation for
the Shark Run 5K. “We
received a lot of community
support, and there has been an
amazing turnout.”
“Today will fund just about
all of the projects for the year,”
Mrs. Cornell said, of the funds
raised for the Bay Head
School.
One hour after the Shark
Run 5K kicked off at 8:30 a.m.,
on Bridge Avenue, the third
annual Bay Head School
Foundation Duck Derby hit
the water at Centennial Park.
Shannon Curtis, of Bay
Head School Foundation, said
the third annual Great Bay
Head Duck Derby was a success.
SUEANNE GOSS, The Ocean Star
Claudia Jacobs, of Bay Head, and her 3-year-old daughter,
Caroline, enjoyed the festivities at the inaugural Bay Head

Ms. Curtis said more than
825 competitors, with rubber
ducks, competed in four racing
heats. The top finishers went
on to compete in the final heat
and the top four received
prizes.
“[The Duck Derby] raises
money for the mini grants,”
Ms. Curtis said. “The grants go
to teachers and volunteers of
the Bay Head School for innovative, curriculum projects and
extra curricular activities that
are not covered in the budget.”
Ms. Curtis said Shore
Cycling, Jersey Paddler, Bay
Head Beach House Board
Shop and Point Pleasant
Bicycle sponsored the prizes.
The Duck Derby and Shark
Run 5K were not the only big
events in town this past weekend.
All along the Bridge Avenue
business district, various members of the Bay Head Mayor’s
Wellness Campaign, called
“Go Bay Head!” hosted events
and activities to promote
healthy lifestyles among Bay
Head residents, part of the
campaign’s first Fall Festival.
The Billy Lawlor Band performed for all Fall Festival
attendees. The band set up a
stage right off Bridge Avenue
and could be heard throughout
the event.
Catherine Jung and her
daughter, Gabrielle, both of
Wall, attended the festival to
participate in the Zumba dance
demonstration.
“It’s such a great day,” Mrs.
Jung said, as she and her
daughter drank some of the
antioxidant-enriched
water
that was made available to
everyone at the event.
The enriched water was distributed at a booth called
“Drink to your Health,” which
was designed to inform people
of the importance of proper
hydration.
Georgette Januse, of the
Shore Ballroom Studio, in
Point Pleasant, led the Zumba
demonstration, which had people moving in the street. Ms.
Januse teaches a Zumba class
at the studio on Tuesday
nights.
Patti Durkin, of Bay Head’s
Therapeutic Touch, and a
member of the Bay Head
Mayor’s Wellness Campaign,
was on hand to assist in making the group’s first Fall
Festival a success.
“We wanted to have things
that were fun and would get
people moving,” Mrs. Durkin
said.
“It’s exercise in disguise,” she
remarked.
Bay Head’s Char Charlton,
also a member of the Mayor’s
Wellness Committee, was on
hand as well.
Mrs. Charlton led a group
walking tour during the Fall
Festival. “Go Bay Head!” has
mapped out four different tour
routes that take walkers
throughout the borough, and
Mrs. Charlton said she was
going to lead a group on the
Town Tour Saturday morning.
That tour, which she said is
roughly one-half of 1 mile, features many of the historic
homes in Bay Head.

Bay Head GOP incumbents running unopposed for council
By Nick Malfitano
This year, two of Bay Head’s
incumbent Republican council
members will be running unopposed in the general election.
Councilmen John DeFilippis
and James A. Urner will be
unchallenged on Election Day,
Nov. 2, for a pair of three-year
terms on the governing body.
No Democrats filed to run
for their party’s general election
in the June primary.
Unless a write-in campaign
is organized, the two incumbents are guaranteed re-election.
Councilman DeFilippis, 78,
is a retired corporate vice-president
for
International
Telephone
&
Telegraph
Consumer Specialty Products.
He studied industrial engineering at the Newark Technical
School [now the New Jersey
Institute of Technology], and
then after a stint in the Armed
Forces, earned a bachelor’s
degree in industrial management from Rutgers University.
Councilman
DeFilippis
resides on Goetze Street with
his wife, Helene. They have
three sons: John, 49, who is an
attorney in Manhattan; David,
46, owner of a
film production company
in
Santa

California;
and Randy,
40, who owns

the fields of
DEFILIPPIS
medicine and
education. He has been a resident of Bay Head for 21 years.
The councilman recently
extolled the virtues of living in
2010
the borough.
“It’s a quiet, residential, laidback town,” said Councilman
DeFilippis. “It’s a small community where everyone knows
one another.”
The councilman’s interest in
politics goes back to his childhood days. “My family was
involved in local politics where
I grew up in Perth Amboy. But
I had not been active again
myself until I moved to Bay
Head 21 years ago,” he said.
In addition, Councilman
DeFilippis has served as president of the Bay Head
Republican Club, on the Bay
Head Planning Board and as a
borough councilman for three
terms. He has been endorsed by
the Bay Head Republican Club
for re-election.
“Having
been elected
on three separate occasions
seems to indicate that the
residents are

Historical society house tour tomorrow
The Bay Head Historical
Society invites the public to enjoy
a tour of several historic area
homes and a picnic lunch this
Saturday, Oct. 9 from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m.
This year’s tour entitled “A Peek
At The Past” features nine Bay
Head and Mantoloking houses, as
well as the Historical Society
Museum. The tour offers the public a first-hand look at interesting
historic homes, as well as two
newer homes with interesting
architectural details.
All of the homes demonstrate
the great architectural elements in
the design of homes built soon
after the development of the two
towns at the end of the 19th and
the beginning of the early 20th
centuries. Several of the homes, as
well as the museum building, were
all candidates for demolition or
major changes, but instead the
owners chose to do whatever it
took to preserve or maintain the
integrity of the buildings.
One of the buildings featured
on the tour is an elegant Neo-classic estate home designed in the
style of noted world class architect
Stanford White. With its huge
white pillars and two story portico,
it is the premier pivotal landmark
building at the northern entry into
Bay Head’s historical district. Also
featured along with this exceptional residence is the building
immediately behind it, which at
one time was the carriage house
for the main house. Once a garage
and then a small bunkhouse for
employees of the railroad, it has
been reborn as an “upside-down”
unusual and pleasurable residence
filled with antiquities and treasures from all over the world.
Another unusual home on this
tour highlights the steps taken to
save an old building from the bulldozers and turn it into a house
that is suitable for comfortable living in today’s world. With photos
important issues accordingly,”
said the councilman, who stated that making decisions is not
always easy.
“There are nuances to the
process, but knowing the residents well and remaining cognizant on key issues is very
important. As other issues
arise, we will address them
also,” Councilman DeFilippis
said.
When asked what he wanted
to continue or change during
his future in office, if re-elected
in November, Councilman
DeFilippis said that he
“respects the judgment” of Bay
Head citizens, and will “continue to work for their best interests.”
His
running
mate,
Councilman Urner, 71, also
emphasized that representing
the borough of Bay Head was a
welcome assignment. Having
spent summers in a home on
Mount Street as a young child,
he and his wife, Sherry, became
full-time residents of the borough in 2000.
The couple has two daughters, Nancy, who lives in
Connecticut, and Katherine, of
Rhode Island, and a son, James,
of Albany, N.Y.; and seven
grandchildren.
Prior to his retirement,
Councilman Urner worked for
Phoenix Insurance, located in
Hartford, Conn.
He is seeking his third term
on the council in this year’s
election, having served as chairman of the finance committee
for the past three years.
Councilman Urner has also
been endorsed by the Bay Head
Republican Club.
“I’ve been chairman of the
finance committee for three
years, and I have the background and experience which is
needed in these difficult economic times,” said the councilman, who stated that no drastic
changes to Bay Head’s financial
future were in store. “I think
that we’re on a good fiscal path,
and it’s a path that I feel we
should continue on.”
The
councilman
also
explained his affinity for the
community of Bay Head, where
his family has maintained a residence in some form for four
generations, dating back to the
1920s.
“I’ve grown up in Bay Head
from the age of 5, it’s a wonderful community where everyone
helps each other at the drop of
a hat. The weather is wonderful
too, and so is the beach. What
more could you ask for?”
Councilman Urner emphasized that working for the citizens of the borough is a gratifying job.
“The residents have supported me in the past, and I do
hope they continue to support
me in the future,” he said.
Polls for the general election
will open at 6 a.m. and close at
8 p.m. Bay Head’s lone voting
district is at the municipal
building, located at 81 Bridge
Avenue.
JOSEPH J. DELCONZO, The Ocean Star
The Gables, at 200 Main Avenue in Bay Head, is just one of the featured stops on the Bay
Head Historical Society’s House Tour, set for tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 9, from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m. This year’s tour is titled “A Peek At The Past.”
and narrated video to demonstrate
what can be done and how to do
it, this home offers the public a
close-up view of the pleasures and
possibilities of restoration. A residence that was once the Baptist
church for the servants of the
“Golden Age;” a newer home
filled with hand-painted murals;
an oceanfront estate with a revolving observatory on its rooftop; a
pair of original “old Mantoloking”
homes built into 1903; and a quintessential country cottage round
out the roster of exciting homes on
this tour.
At the Historical Society
Museum, itself an historic building built in 1867 and rescued in
1995 by the Bay Head Historical
Society, will be an “old-fashioned”
picnic lunch from 12 to 2:30 p.m.
For an “old-fashioned” price of $5,
lunch includes hot dogs or hamburgers, sides, drinks and desserts.
Everyone is welcome to the picnic,
and to enjoy the current museum
exhibit, “World War II:
Remembered.” This outstanding
display of artifacts, photos, uniforms, memorabilia and personal
stories commemorates the 65th
anniversary of the end of World
War II. The exhibit also honors
those in the area who served and
highlights the roles played by this
area during the war.
Admission charge for the house
tour is $40 for tickets purchased in
advance, or $45 on the day of the
tour. Tickets can be purchased
only at The Jolly Tar, 56 Bridge
Avenue, Bay Head. A tour
brochure for tourgoers will be
available the day of the event at
The Jolly Tar.
Free parking is available in the
Bay Head municipal parking lot
on Bridge Avenue, and on the side
streets of Bay Head and
Mantoloking. Admission to the
museum is free of charge. While
children are welcome at the museum, the house tour is not suitable
for children under age 12.

Point Pleasant Beach
TNR trailers change location
— FROM PAGE 1 —
This week, Cooks Lane resident Greg Gennaro, the attorney who filed the lawsuit,
explained that the lawsuit is no
longer necessary, because during
its meeting last Tuesday, the
Point Pleasant Beach Council
decided to keep the trailers on
Cooks Road, and simply move
them closer to the curb, making
it easier to hook them up to
water and sewer utilities.
“I and the plaintiffs are very
relieved that the trailers are not
going to be placed on the resi-
Opdyke Furniture
plans cocktail
party for charity
Opdyke Furniture, located at
308 Sea Ave., in Point Pleasant
Beach, will hold a cocktail party
for charity at the store, on
Wednesday, Oct. 27, from 5 to
7:30 p.m.
The party will be a fundraiser for Providence House
Domestic Violence Services, of
Whiting, which provides victims of domestic abuse and
their children with an array of
services that include emergency
shelter, a 24-hour hotline,
counseling services, a comprehensive children’s program, a
parenting education program,
and a program specifically
designed to assist victims age 50
and older.
Providence House’s services
are offered at no cost to the victims, who are struggling to
break free from the cycle of violence in their homes.
Tickets to the cocktail party
cost $12, each, and 100 percent
of ticket sales goes to
Providence House Domestic
Violence Services.
Tickets can be purchased at
Opdyke Furniture.
A portion of everything sold
in the store that night will also
be donated to Providence
House.
dential lot on Cooks Lane, and
the rest of the residents are
pleased as well,” Mr. Gennaro
said.
Mr. Gennaro filed a lawsuit
seeking to block the relocation
of the TNR trailers in Ocean
County Superior Court last
month, on behalf of his father,
Richard Gennaro, and a neighbor, Jim Aiosa, who both live on
Cooks Lane.
The lawsuit stated that the
plaintiffs were looking for a
judge to invalidate the consent
resolution item the council
passed in June to authorize the
trailer relocation.
The plaintiffs were also seeking a court order to prevent the
trailers from being placed at the
unused lot on Cooks Lane.
The lawsuit claimed that, in
order for TNR activity to take
place on Cooks Lane — which
is part of the borough’s SF-5
single-family residential zone —
the AWC or the borough would
first have to apply for, and
obtain, a use variance from the
Point Pleasant Beach Zoning
Board of Adjustment, something the AWC has not done.
On
Tuesday,
Borough
Attorney Kevin Riordan said he
“executed a consent order, which
will end the case.”
The consent order states that
because the council passed the
resolution to keep the trailers on
Cooks Road, the plaintiffs’
action had been “rendered
moot.”
Council President Kristine
Tooker, who is the council liaison to the Animal Welfare
Committee, has explained that
the trailers had to be moved so
they could be hooked up to hot
and cold running water sources.
In the past, Councilwoman
Tooker said water had to be
brought in for the cats that were
housed in the trailers.
At the Sept. 7 council meeting, Borough Administrator
Christine Riehl said the Ocean
County Board of Health has
given the borough some leeway
regarding the deadline for relocating the trailers.
Ms. Riehl said the council
had to make a decision on
whether or not it would alter its
plan for the location of the trailers by the Sept. 28 council meeting.
This week, the councilwoman
said the cost of moving the trailers on Cooks Road is about
$7,000, which is “equal to, or a
little less than,” the cost of moving the trailers to Cooks Lane.
That move would have
included costs for taking down
two abandoned pump houses on
the Cooks Lane lot, and landscaping the area.
Ms. Riehl said all the expenses associated with the move
would be covered by the AWC,
which has been helping fund the
TNR program through a series
of fundraisers.
Councilwoman Tooker said
this week she felt this was the
best course of action for the borough “in the long run.”
“It will be better, mainly
because it will be less work for
us — it will be a lot easier for
us,” Councilwoman Tooker said.
During last week’s council
meeting, Borough Attorney Ray
Savacool said the move would
also “free up the balance of the
parking lot, and eliminates putting them [the trailers] near any
residential area.”
Mr. Savacool said it would
have been cheaper to connect
the trailers to water and sewer
utilities if they were located on
Cooks Lane.
During the meeting last
week, Councilwoman Tooker
said the wheels would be taken
off the trailers once they are
moved closer to the curb, and a
fence would also be placed
around them.
Councilman Ray Cervino
added that he was pleased with
the new location, because the
relocation would not affect residents.
“You can’t put a price on
that,” Councilman Cervino said.
The council unanimously
passed a resolution to move the
trailers on Cooks Road, based
on the information provided by
Mr. Savacool.

HOW “SUNTELLIGENT” ARE YOU?
According to a recent survey by the American
Academy of Dermatology
(AAD) most people are concerned about skin cancer,
however, their attitudes and
behaviors are hardly in line
with
their
concerns.
According to the online survey Suntelligence: How
Smart is Your City?, 80 percent of respondents professed to be concerned
about skin cancer while 75
percent said they would do
anything to prevent it. Yet,
74 percent indicated a belief
that a tan makes people
look more attractive, and
two-thirds of the respondents said that a tan makes
people look healthier. Sixty
percent agreed that sunexposure is good for a person.
Moreover, 28 percent of the
survey’s respondents said
that they never checked
moles and skin blemishes
for changes.
The warning signs of skin
cancer may include changes
in the surface of a mole,
scales, bleeding as well as
tenderness, itchiness and
pain. If you have any signs
to suggest a skin disease,
see a medical specialist. If
you do not have a dermatologist at this time, we are
accepting new patients. To
schedule an appointment,
call 732-295-1331. I am conveniently located at 407
Richmond Ave., Route 35
South, Point Pleasant

always welcome.
P.S. Fifty-nine percent of
the respondents in the survey mentioned above have
never been checked for skin
cancer by a healthcare professional and 70 percent did
not apply sunscreen on an
average day despite AAF
recommendations! Call for

Candidates square off in mayoral recall
By Chris Sheldon
For the first time in the history of the borough, there will
be a recall election on Nov. 2,
with two candidates challenging current Mayor Vincent
Barrella for his seat.
In June, the Republican
County Committee chose to
endorse Stephen Reid over
Mayor Barrella in the recall
election. The following day,
t
h
e
Democratic
C o u n t y
Committee
picked form e r Po i n t
Pleasant
Beach councilman John
STEPHEN Dixon to go
REID
up
against
the mayor.
The mayor filed as an
Independent candidate in the
recall election, after his party
chose not to endorse him.
Mayor Barrella has consistently challenged in everhigher courts the validity of
the petition to put the recall
question on the ballot in the
first place.
Last month, the New Jersey
Supreme Court refused to
hear his appeal, giving the
final green light to the recall
election this November.
The voters will first be
asked if they think the mayor
should be recalled. Those that
vote yes to a recall will then be
asked who they believe should
replace the mayor. They will
be able to choose from Mr.
Reid, Mr. Dixon or even
Mayor Barrella.

If the majority of voters
choose a recall, and Mr. Reid
or Mr. Dixon receive more
votes than Mayor Barrella, the
mayor will not be allowed to
finish the remainder of his
four-year term, which is set to
expire at the end of 2011. He
would be removed from office
immediately following the
election and the new mayor
would be sworn in.
According to the state
recall statute, “the successor
receiving the greatest number
of votes shall succeed to the
office of [the mayor] upon
certification of the election
results, and
shall
serve
for
the
remainder of
the unexpired
term.”
The statute
also dictates
that if voters
JOHN
choose note
DIXON
to
recall
Mayor Barrella, he “shall not
again be subject to recall until
after having served one year of
a term calculated from the
date of the recall election.”
No matter who wins the
election, they will have to run
again in November 2011 for a
new, four-year term.

Jacqueline, and daughter

FOR
POINT PLEASANT BEACH
A FISCAL CONSERVATIVE
On the Issues
• Stabilizing Property Taxes: I will work with our municipal department heads to
put forth zero-sum budgets in the upcoming year. I WILL WORK TOWARDS
A ZERO MUNICIPAL TAX INCREASE IN 2011-2012.
• Our Police Department: I do not support consolidation of our police department
with Point Pleasant Borough.
• Our Schools: PPB has an excellent school system, which helps to maintain our
property values. As a Council member, by law, I would have no role in any decision to consolidate our school system. That type of decision is determined by our
Board of Education and our voters. Our Governing Body should not have to play
a role in reviewing our local school budget. Our Board of Education members, as
elected officials, owe a duty to the voters and taxpayers of PPB to develop a budget that our voters can willingly pass without intervention from our Governing
Body.
• Generating Revenue: I do not support imposing new taxes on any stakeholder
of PPB. Taxes are not the solution, especially in a difficult economy. I welcome
all suggestions from the members of our community for ideas on generating nontax revenue for our town.

Mr. Reid has never served
in public office. He ran for a
spot on the Point Pleasant
Council in 1996, and was
unsuccessful.
Mr. Reid graduated from
Point Pleasant Beach High
School in 1983, before moving to Point Pleasant, then
Pennsylvania.
Mr. Reid moved back to
Point Pleasant Beach last
year.
Mr. Reid is the senior vice
president of Capital Public
Affairs, which handles public
relations, grassroots and lobbying for clients such as
Walgreens and Home Depot.
He is also a wrestling coach
at the Antrim School, and was
an assistant football coach at
Point Pleasant Beach High
School last year.
Although he has never been
a member of council, Mr. Reid
is no stranger to local government. His mother, Barbara
Reid, sat on the borough
council, and his father,
Donald Reid, served on the
Point

Planning Board.
Mr. Reid also worked with
former New Jersey governor
Christine Todd Whitman on
the New Jersey Board of
Public Utilities.
Mr. Reid said he has already
started going door-to-door to
listen to residents’ concerns
“The number one thing, I
would like to bring civility
back to Point Pleasant
Beach.”
“People are sick and tired of
the way things are right now

Councilwoman Tooker said.
“I haven't played politics but
have listened to the public and
made independent decisions
based on what's right for the
Beach,” the councilwoman
added.
Ms. Arrabito, 52, of Forman

Volunteers needed to
help plant rain garden
The Point Pleasant Beach
Environmental Commission and
Green
Team
Advisory
Committee [GTAC] are seeking
volunteers to assist with the
installation of the borough’s first
public native plant/rain garden.
The garden will be installed in
the grassy area at the east end of
Little Silver Lake, in Point
Pleasant Beach.
The Point Pleasant Beach
Council has approved the site,
and Council President Kristine
Tooker who is the council liaison
to
the
Environmental
Commission, said she sees this as
an “important step to help water
quality at Little Silver Lake.”
Steve Ardito, Green Team
Project Lead on the rain garden,
said he is excited about the project, as it will serve multiple purposes.
The primary purpose of the
garden is to demonstrate the benefits of non-structural storm
water management, and use of
native plants in the landscape.
The garden will serve to intercept and treat a portion of the
storm water draining from the
adjacent asphalt parking area.
“The Green Team sees great
educational and motivational
potential for residents to add
some of these native plants to
their landscapes,” Mr. Ardito said
recently. “With the summer we
have had, these drought-resistant
plants would be a welcome addition to anyone’s garden.”
Mr. Ardito has successfully
engaged
Rutgers
Water
Resources Program on the design
of the rain garden, and secured
donation pricing on the plants
from Pinelands Nursery and
Supply Co., in Columbus.
With the assistance of the
Point
Pleasant
Beach
Department of Public Works,
volunteer labor, donated materials
and reduced plant material costs
provided by Pinelands Nursery
and Supply, the cost for this project is going to be minimal.
The
Environmental
Sale
at
Flexsteel Fine Furniture on
Sale now through 10/31
Commission and Green Team
will also rely upon volunteer labor
for any future plantings, as well as
maintenance of the garden.
The target dates for planting
the garden are Saturday, Oct. 23
and Saturday, Nov. 6.
Anyone interested in volunteering to plant or join the Green
Team, which meets at 7 p.m. on
the third Wednesday of the
month, can contact Peter
Ritchings at 732-899-5024.
Recently, Green Team members and community volunteers
held a successful Weeding Party,
organized by Kim Dietz-Kabbal
on Arnold Avenue, to help the
downtown business district look
its best for the Point Pleasant
Beach Chamber of Commercesponsored Festival of the Sea.
The Green Team is also working on a Green Business
Recognition Program. Part of the
program is to actively engage
business owners and operators in
the maintenance of the area in
front of their stores.

Ocean Fire Co. marks 125 years serving community
By Chris Sheldon
Ocean Fire Company No. 1
just blew out the candles on its
125th birthday cake, and celebrated its unique distinction as
the oldest fire company in
Ocean County.
The fire company, located at
the corner of Arnold and Saint
Louis Avenue in Point
Pleasant Beach, hosted the
celebration on Saturday at the
fire house.
Ocean Fire Company No. 1
firefighter Scott Potter, who is
on the company’s anniversary
committee, said he estimated
that about 250 people attended
the celebration.
Mr. Potter said he, and
those who attended, had a
memorable experience.
“Overall I think it was a
great time,” Mr. Potter said.
“There was lots of food, music,
drink and a lot of good people
coming out to help us celebrate.”
“I think everybody who
came out had a fantastic time.
We had a good time with the
members [of the fire company]
and the community,” Mr.
Potter continued.
Mr. Potter said the fire company received a proclamation
from the Point Pleasant Beach

Beach BOE looks
to refinance bonds
By Eric Colvin
At the last Point Pleasant
Beach Board of Education
regular meeting, held Tuesday,
Sept. 28, board members
voted unanimously to pursue
refinancing existing bonds.
Brian Savage, school business administrator and board
secretary, informed board
members and meeting attendees that the current economic climate is suitable for the
school district to explore
reworking current bonds.
“We have a potential refinance of bonds,” Mr. Savage
said. He said the possibility
exists that the district could
obtain “lower interest rates” if
board members approved a
motion on the agenda.
James Ireland, board president, immediately removed
himself from any discussion.
Mr. Ireland informed board
members that he works for
Wells Fargo, and it would be
inappropriate for him to participate in refinance discussions.
Mr. Savage said the first
step for board members to
take would be to submit an
application to the local finance
board. Then, members can
move forward with the refinance.
Board members approved
the measure. Mr. Savage said
the district will only move forward with a refinance if there
is a projected net return of at
least 3 percent.
Following approval, Mr.
Savage said there will be a formal presentation on the matter at the next board of education meeting later this month.
At the meeting, the board
also accepted the retirements
of Mary Testa and Ed Hanley.
“Theirs will be hard shoes
to fill,” Mr. Ireland said.
Both retirees were longtime
district employees at the high
school. Mrs. Testa was a math
teacher and Mr. Hanley a
guidance counselor.
The board also moved to
provide
Ocean
County
Superintendent of Schools
Bruce Greenfield with a certified district nursing list.
Kathy Fioretti, a certified
nurse, and Elizabeth Finnerty,
also a certified nurse, are
assigned to the schools and
will perform nursing duties.
Point Pleasant School
District Superintendent John
A. Ravally opened discussion
about the high school sailing
club. He spoke highly of the
club and informed the board
that members would like official recognition from the
board. The sailing club would
like to be an official, schoolsanctioned club.
“There will be no financial
obligation on behalf of the
board,” Mr. Ravally advised.
Mr. Ravally asked board
members for authorization to
get more information from the
sailing club in order to assess
the recognition the members
seek.
Board members unanimously authorized Mr. Ravally to
explore the matter further.
“The club has been successful,” Mr. Ireland said.

Ocean Fire Company No. 1
Vice President Mike Ryan,
who was also the chair of the
anniversary committee, and
Point Pleasant Beach Fire
Department Chief Michael
Brodeur, both said a few words
to the crowd.
“I did a lot of thanking,” Mr.
Ryan said. “I tried to thank
everybody involved with planning the celebration, the other
companies we deal with, along
with the ladies auxiliary and all
the members over the 125-year
history [of the fire company].”
Other
fire
companies,
including Point Pleasant
Beach Fire Company No. 2
and the Point Pleasant Fire
Department, also came to the
celebration.
Members of the fire company received commemorative Tshirts and decorative mugs, as
well.
Mr. Potter has been a member of the fire company for
almost six years, and said he is
glad he was able to be a part of
the day.
“It’s special to say I’m a part,
even though it’s a small part, of
the 125 years of pride and tradition we have at the fire company,” Mr. Potter said.
Mr. Ryan said he also was
pleased he was able to enjoy
the celebration.
“We had a lot fun,” Mr.
Ryan said. “We had a fantastic
DJ, there was dancing, the
food was fantastic and it was a
perfect day.”
Mr. Potter said this will not
be the last anniversary celebration for fire company, but that
the next one will not occur
until the fire company celebrates its 150th birthday.
“This will be the last one for
at least another 25 years,” Mr.
Potter said.

Point Pleasant
Democrats, Republicans vie for two open council seats
By Eric Colvin
With the Point Pleasant general election quickly approaching, Democratic and Republican
candidates are ready to square off
and see who will win the two
council seats that will be up for
grabs on Nov. 2.
Each of the seats carries a
three-year term in office.
Current GOP Councilman
William Dikun announced earlier this year that he would not
seek re-election as his term
comes to end in December.
Council President Susan Rogers’
seat is also available, as the councilwoman is not running for reelection to her seat and instead
has decided to seek the open
mayor’s seat [see related story].
The Democratic ticket for
council consists of Christopher
Goss and Robert Rusk, both
newcomers to borough politics.
Likewise, Republicans Al
Faraldi and Robert Sabosik are
also newcomers.
Council is currently composed
of four Republicans —
Councilwoman
Rogers,
Councilwoman Toni DePaola,
and councilmen William Dikun
and Mitch Remig.
There are two Democrats
with
seats
on
council:
Councilman
Christopher
Leitner and Councilman Jack
McHugh.
Mr. Goss, 34, lives on Kilkare
Parkway with his wife, Jacquie,
and their three boys. Mr. Goss
has four children: Maura
DeRose, 10, Spencer, 8,
William, 5, and Elliott, 10
months.
Mrs. Goss is both a web communications specialist and
spokesperson for the Point
Pleasant
Borough
School
District.
“My wife and I came to Point
Pleasant by choice, because we
knew that it would be a wonderful place to make our home,” Mr.
Goss said this week.
“My wife is a product of our
fine schools who put herself
through NYU and based on our
experience so far I have no doubt
that the same opportunities for
success will be available to our
children,” he continued.
After high school, Mr. Goss
attended Rutgers University and
left after his
first year to
pursue
a
career
in
music.
In
past
years,
Mr.
Goss
has
worked as a
CHRIS GOSS media buyer
“I felt that people
like me, with
concerns like me,
weren't being
represented in
our town.”
— Christopher Goss,
Democratic council
candidate
for Jack’s Music Shoppe and an
assistant manager for the
Murphy Style Grille –– both in
Red Bank –– and a custom millwork specialist for Woodhaven
Lumber in Lakewood and Point
Pleasant.
“I worked at Woodhaven
Lumber for five years [and] I
came to know many of the families and professionals that make
the borough so special,” Mr.
Goss said. “Coaching soccer and
helping form the Skate Club has
just reinforced my belief that
Point Pleasant is really one large
neighborhood.”
Currently, Mr. Goss is a fulltime parent, and he and his wife
are planning to start their own
2010
grant writing firm. They moved
to Point Pleasant in 2004.
When asked what prompted
him to run for council, Mr. Goss
said, “I have three boys that will
be going through our schools
and growing up in our town.”
Mr. Goss said the programs
offered by the library and recreation center “are priceless.” He
said he believes “it is imperative
that we be self sustaining, that
we insulate ourselves from the
ills of our state, county, and other
municipalities.
“I think it would be foolish to
create a situation where the benefits and services we enjoy and
rely on as residents of Point
Pleasant are handed off to other
towns that would receive our tax
compensation but where we do
not vote,” he continued.
Mr. Goss said he would like to
see the borough handle situations internally, instead of looking to outside sources.
“Our problems with cell towers, traffic, garbage collection,
school conduct, drugs, safety,
and so many others are local and
we have no good reason to see
them as anything else,” Mr. Goss
said. “Just as our difficulties are
local so are our successes and it is
when we come together, one on
one, neighbor to neighbor, street
by street that we thrive.
“I have no love for politics.
My passion is for the success of
my children. I felt that people
like me, with concerns like me,
weren't being represented in our
town, and when I got involved
it started to become clear just
how fragile the things I love
about our town had become,”
Mr. Goss said.
Mr. Rusk said, “As someone
who was raised in Point
Pleasant, it’s been a great pleasure to come back these last five
years to our town and find so
much of it just the way I remembered. It has also been a personal pleasure to care for my parents
and return the care and attention
they have always given me.
“Unfortunately, obligations at
work and at home have kept me
busier than I expected, but my
love of Point Pleasant and my
desire to serve her in difficult
times has not diminished,” he
added. “I feel as my running
mates do, that our community
needs to be preserved and that it
is people like [William
Schroeder],
[Councilman
Leitner], and myself that are
needed, people without personal
agendas or personal gains to be
made in the name of service.
There are no special requirements or skills to serve on council, you just need to be trusted by
your neighbors to put their
interests above your own. I
believe that even a brief look will
show Bill, Chris, and I to be
those people.”
Republican candidate Robert
Sabosik, 59, lives on Rue
Mirador with his wife, CJ. He
has three grown children,
Michelle, 33, Meredith, 29, and
Megan, 24.
Mr. Sabosik is a graduate of
Seton Hall University where he
majored in history and minored
in political science with a concentration in accounting.
Mr. Sabosik runs ME Sabosik
Associates, a flooring specialist
company, on Bridge Avenue. He
has been in business since 1976
and at the Bridge Avenue location since 1982.
“This town has been
good to my family and
now I want to give back
to our town to insure it
remains our town for
the future generations to
come,” Mr. Sabosik said
this week.
The success of his
business has led to his involvement in several organizations
including Carpet America
Recovery Effort [CARE],
Starnet Commercial Flooring
Partnership,
American
Subcontractors Association and
the Floor Covering Installation
Contractors
Association
[FCICA].

2001.

and now I want to

— Robert Sabosik,
Republican council
candidate
given the Leadership Award for
Business Excellence from the
Point
Pleasant
Borough
Chamber of Commerce in 2004.
Mr. Sabosik grew up in Point
Pleasant Borough. He moved
away for several years, ultimately
migrating back to the borough.
He is an active member of the
Point Pleasant Boro Rotary
Club and the Point Pleasant
Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Sabosik has sat on the
Point Pleasant Zoning Board of
Adjustment for the last three
years.
“I have received local awards
from [the] Point Pleasant
Chamber of Commerce,” Mr.
Sabosik said this week. He said
he received the leadership award
for business excellence and the
Rotary service above self award.
“I believe with my business
experience of almost 40 years, I
can bring some of my knowledge
of the business world to the
world of helping to run a town
in a positive manner,” Mr.
Sabosik said when asked why he
is running for office.
“I have extensive knowledge
in contract review, purchasing
including reverse auctions and
can lead a cohesive unit to create
a platform of respect and calmness that will be beneficial to
all,” he continued.
“We cannot just keep raising
taxes, we must find a way to
deliver a safe environment to our
citizens without losing the
charm that Point Pleasant has to
offer,” Mr. Sabosik concluded.
Mr. Sabosik’s running mate,
Al Faraldi, 58, lives on Bay Isle
Drive with his wife, Claudia.
The couple has three grown
children, Rob, 30, Jaime, 27, and
Nick, 21.
Mr. Faraldi is a licensed land
surveyor and planner. He owns
Faraldi Group, Inc., which is
based in Secaucus. He also
teaches land surveying at
Stevens Institute of Technology
in Hoboken.
Mr. Faraldi has lived in the
borough since 1953. He attended what is now the New Jersey
Institute of Technology, where
he majored in engineering.
Mr. Faraldi served 10 years on
the New Jersey State Board of
Professional Engineers and
Land Surveyors.
“We spend too much,” Mr.
Faraldi said this week. “The
town does, the state does and the
country does.”
He said he will focus on providing tax relief for the citizens,
while also controlling spending
in the borough.
“The schools are great, the
police are great, and the residents are great,” Mr. Faraldi said
this week. “Everything is fine the
way it is, we just have to get the
spending under control.
“You can’t do it by yourself.
I’m a team player, we all need to
work together on whatever
problems come up.”
Mr. Faraldi said one way he
believes spending can be controlled is to take a closer look at
the current contracts the borough has with vendors and professionals.
He said he will “ask questions”
and encourage “thorough bidding processes.”
“I will be an active, forceful
member of council,” Mr. Faraldi
said when asked to describe
what type of councilman he
intends to be. “I won’t just
be there to be there.”

Point Pleasant
Former mayor, current council president seek mayor’s seat
By Eric Colvin
With the much anticipated
Point Pleasant Borough general
election less than one month
a w a y ,
Republican
Susan Rogers
and Democrat
W i l l i a m
Schroeder are
set to square
off, each with
hopes
of
becoming the
SUSAN
next mayor of
ROGERS
P o i n t
Pleasant.
The six-person borough
council currently consists of four
Republicans
and
two
Democrats. The current leader
of the governing body, Mayor
Martin Konkus, is also a
Republican.
With Mayor Konkus’ fouryear term set to expire this year,
Ms. Rogers, the current council
president, has her eyes set on the
mayor’s post, while former
mayor William Schroeder, now
a Democrat, looks to return to
the seat he once held as a
Republican.
“I am the taxpayers’ advocate
and their strong and outspoken
voice on council,” the councilwoman said this week. “I know
taxpayers can’t afford any more
new taxes and I know how to
keep us effective and efficient —
without raising taxes.”
Councilwoman Rogers’ first
three-year term on council will
end at the close of 2010. She has
been council president for the
last two years.
“In the past three years my
leadership and initiatives have
set precedents to include being
the first town in the [state] to
take contract negotiations public,” Councilwoman Rogers
said.
“I lead the charge with shared
services and some of the largest
and most beneficial shred
agreements in Ocean and
Monmouth [counties] that
have saved and will continue to
save taxpayers more than a
quarter of a million dollars
heading into the future.”
The councilwoman, 43,
resides on River Road. She has
two children in her life: Bryan,
12, and Kyra, 15. She has been a
resident of Point Pleasant for
more than 25 years.
On council
she has been
the chair of
the administration
and
finance committee for the
last two years.
She is also a
WILLIAM member of the
SCHROEDER p l a n n i n g
board,
and
chairwoman of the open space
advisory committee.
“I brought taxpayers a zero
municipal tax increase in 2010,
one of the most difficult years in
our state’s history,” the councilwoman said.
She said fiscal responsibility
remains a top priority, and has
the record to prove effectiveness
concerning financial matters.
“I cut spending 5.4 percent in
my first year on council, brought
trust accounts into compliance
and made sure we did business
with transparency,” the councilwoman said. “In 2009, I was the
lone no vote against a 4.9-percent tax increase and I know
how to provide solutions in difficult economic times.”
Councilwoman Rogers also
sits on the Board of Directors of
Dottie’s House.
She is a past Golden Elks
cheerleading coach, the founder
of the Neighborhood Watch
Program and co-founder of the
Point
Pleasant
Warrior
Basketball Program.
2010
This year, Councilwoman
Rogers was the Ocean County
Young Republican Leadership
award recipient. The borough’s
Foundation for Educational
Excellence also inducted her
into the hall of fame in 2010.
The county’s Federation of
Republican Women named her
the Woman of the Year for two
consecutive years, in 2008 and
2009.
Councilwoman Rogers said
she is the owner of multiple
businesses and has been doing
financial planning, as well as
land and agricultural development, for more than 20 years.
“As the borough’s future
mayor, I will continue to build a
strong working relationship
with our county and state officials,” the councilwoman said.
She said that relationship will be
important in order to “restore
aid to the borough and lead in
needed reforms” in an effort to
“stabilize taxes here in the borough and keep Point Pleasant
an affordable place to live.”
After a write-in campaign in
the June primary, the Democrats
will host former mayor William
Schroeder in an attempt to
derail Councilwoman Rogers’
ambitions.
“I am a former mayor, and
council member,” Mr. Schroeder
said this week. “I am proud of
my tenure. While I served the
people of Point Pleasant, I was
able to preserve acres of open
space
by
developing
Community Park and negotiating the purchase of the property
that is now Riverfront Park. I
was able to negotiate the hiring
of police and build our recycling
center. I formed the council of
mayors that brought the Urgent
Care Center to fruition. I was
able to do all this while maintaining a low and reasonable tax
rate.”
Mr. Schroeder, 63, lives on
Clarks Landing Drive with his
wife, Bonnie. He has five grown
children and five grandchildren.
He is a 1966 graduate of
Point Pleasant Borough High
School.
“I love this town, I've made
my life in this town,” Mr.
Schroeder said.
Following high school, Mr.
Schroeder attended Ocean
County College and Rutgers
University, where he studied
accounting, agronomy and agriculture.
Mr. Schroeder is selfemployed and owns a tree farm
in Farmingdale.
He is a past soccer and football coach in the borough. He
has also served as a member of
the borough’s environmental
commission, as well as four-year
terms on the town’s zoning
board of adjustment and planning board, and served two
terms on the borough council in
the late 1990s.
Mr. Schroeder served four
years as mayor of Point Pleasant
from 1998 to 2002.
“In the years since I was
mayor, I have watched with dismay at the increasing mismanagement of the borough,” Mr.
Schroeder said this week.
“Taxes have gone up 94 percent, but we have less services
and are have furloughed
employees,” he continued. “Our
building department is intended
to support itself with fees, yet
council after council has failed
to set the fees sufficiently to
allow it to support itself.”
Mr. Schroeder, not satisfied
with the current leadership in
the borough, said, “They have
drained every surplus imaginable, and now are raiding our
school funds. While they pretend to be low tax, we have seen
the water rates go up 16 percent
this year.
“My agenda is simple: take
our town back to those things
that make it the town we all
love,” Mr. Schroeder continued.
Mr. Schroeder said he would
support shared services, but only
if the sharing is “done right.” He
said he believes the recent
shared court and construction
department services with Point
Beach were not done correctly
and have changed the face of the
borough.
“Our home town feel, where
you know all the guys in public
works, you know all the officers
on the force, where you can go
into borough hall and get
answers, are evaporating under
the plans of my adversaries. I
want to preserve those things,”
Mr. Schroeder said this week.
Mr. Schroeder said earlier this
year that he originally thought
the 12 years he served as mayor
and on council were enough, but
his opinion has changed.
“I am compelled back into
public service because of the
mismanagement I see from the
current establishment,” Mr.
Schroeder explained. “I want to
change course from the path
they have taken us on since I left
public service. I want to take
Point Pleasant back to the good
old days, and move forward to
better days.
“Some of the things that
make Point Pleasant the place
that I, and so many of my neighbors, love, have been under
attack, and I want to protect
those
institutions,”
Mr.
Schroeder concluded.

DEAR COLOR GUY,
My problem is that I can not seem to keep my color. It fades out so fast that I am becoming frustrated. I have a beautiful shade of red put on my hair but within two weeks it
looks faded. I am a dark brown naturally with no gray I have my hair made a medium to
light red with some copper in the color. Also my hair never looks shiny. I want to stay
red do you have any suggestions?
Washed Out
Toms River
Dear Washed Out,
You hit the nail on the head. Washing your hair to soon after a color will remove as much
as 30% of the color. So for starters do not shampoo for 24 hours after you have a touchup. This give the cuticle or outer layer time to close down or harden and that will make
a big difference in your color retention. As you know reds are notorious for fading out
but the color companies have come up with some solutions. The best is to use a temporary color on the shaft as this will help stain your hair and will have more of that shine
you are looking for. Another thing that works is to have the salon put a refresher on after
about two weeks this will be a big help. I know that people do not have a lot of time to
do this but it is well worth doing. The red shampoos will also help start to use them as
soon as you see any fading. Something else to consider is it is possible that you are
reaching for to light of a shade. When your hair is dark brown it takes a strong developer to lighten it up to the level you like. When you do that the color can become diffused
or weaker and that will definitely add to the problem. Talk to your stylist about going a
little deeper for the color. Reds are still very popular but really need a lot more maintenance to look vibrant. The richness and vibrancy is what people look for in their reds
and it can be frustrating when it looks faded. If you take my advice and go a little darker but feel to dull just put some killer copper or amber highlights in. I haven’t seen you
but I am willing to bet that your hair is a little to light for you and with fall approaching it
might be time to go for a change. You can always go back if you do not feel comfortable
with the new tone.

Mr. Blaine, of Cedar Street in
the borough, was sentenced on
Oct. 1 to 270 days in the Ocean
County Jail and ordered to repay
his victim the $22,670 he took
instead of completing a construction project.
Mr. Blaine pleaded guilty to
third-degree charges of theft
and forgery in Ocean County
Superior Court in Toms River
on July 13.
Superior
Court
Judge
Stephanie M. Wauters had been
prepared to hear the case, but
Mr. Blaine instead pleaded
guilty concerning the construction contract gone bad.
Last Friday, Judge Wauters
handed down the sentence, but
allowed Mr. Blaine to remain
free until Dec. 1, when he must
report to begin the sentence.
Mr. Blaine pleaded guilty to
third-degree charges of theft
and forgery at the beginning of
what was scheduled to be his
trial at the Ocean County
Courthouse in Toms River on
Tuesday, July 13.
Senior Assistant Ocean
County Prosecutor Martin
Anton said Mr. Blaine entered
into the construction contract
with Linda Sparrow, of Brick, in
2007.
According to Mr. Anton, Ms.
Sparrow hired Mr. Blaine to
build an addition to her home.
At the time, Ms. Sparrow wanted to expand her home to house
and care for her elderly mother.
Records show Ms. Sparrow
paid Mr. Blaine $20,000 over
the next few years. Mr. Blaine
never completed the project, and
Ms. Sparrow’s mother has since
died.
In July, Mr. Blaine confessed
to using Ms. Sparrow’s money
for personal expenses, including
mortgage payments, instead of
completing the addition.
According to Mr. Anton, the
forgery charge, the other thirddegree crime to which Mr.
Blaine confessed, stemmed from
an incident in which the contractor forged Ms. Sparrow’s
signature on an electrical permit
application.
Mr. Anton said Mr. Blaine
admitted he signed Ms.
Sparrow’s name when he
applied to Brick Township for
an electrical permit needed to
complete the addition.
Not only did Mr. Blaine forge
Ms. Sparrow’s name, but he also
put on file with the township
that she was going to complete
the work herself.
Under a plea agreement
negotiated earlier this year, Mr.
Blaine had the option to serve a
probationary period and pay
restitution to Ms. Sparrow in
the amount of $20,039.
Mr. Anton said Mr. Blaine
originally accepted the terms of
the deal, when he appeared
before Superior Court Judge
Wendel E. Daniels and pleaded
guilty to theft in March.
Judge Daniels gave Mr.
Blaine until May 7, when a sentencing date was scheduled, to
return with $6,000 as an initial
payment toward the total restitution amount of $20,039,
according to Mr. Anton.
Instead, Mr. Blaine returned
to the courtroom in May with
no money, which nullified the
plea agreement.
Mr. Blaine’s failure to comply
with the terms of the agreement
led Judge Daniels to schedule
the July 13 trial, where Mr.
Blaine pleaded guilty.
Mr. Anton said, if Mr. Blaine
had honored his end of the bargain, the county would have
honored the plea agreement. He
said Mr. Blaine would have
served a probationary period
and paid restitution.
Mr. Anton said there was no
sentencing recommendation,
but Mr. Blaine’s offenses could
have carried an incarceration
term totaling three to five years.

tomorrow’s pig roast fundraiser
Dream Factory of the Jersey
Shore, which was chartered
locally in June, will host its first
of what members to hope to be
an Annual Pig Roast tomorrow,
to help raise money for the
many efforts of the organization.
The pig roast is slated for
Saturday, Oct. 9, from 2 to 6
p.m. The rain date is the following day, Sunday, Oct. 10, at the
same time.
The event will take place at
2158 Lanes Mill Road, in
Brick. Dream Factory volunteers request a $25 donation,
which will entitle donors to
roast pig, hot dogs, hamburgers,
salads, beer, wine, soda, cake
and live music by The
Woodzmen.
Anyone interested in attending the event should call 732840-100. The event is for people over age 21.
Dream Factory volunteers
said generous donations from
local businesses helped to make
the group’s work, and tomorrow’s event, possible.
Among the local businesses
that contributed are the Norkus
Foodtown, located at 505
Richmond Ave., in Point
Pleasant Beach; Joe Leone’s
Italian Specialties & Catering,
located at 400 Route 35 South,
in Point Pleasant Beach; the

Education foundation seeks
sponsors for Casino Night
Through the generosity of
the community over the past
13 years, the Point Pleasant
Foundation for Excellence in
Education has raised and distributed more than $340,000
to the Point Pleasant Borough
School District.
The money has been used
for student leadership grants
and scholarships; teacher
grants; new technology, including two mobile computer labs
and a weather station; and new
equipment, including a playground and the Project
Adventure high ropes course.
Funds have also been used to
purchase inventory for the
Around the Corner school
store. High school students
with disabilities operate the
store.
The organization has also
provided more than $2,000 in
each of the past two years to
provide prizes to students for
the Summer Reading Program.
This year, the top summer
readers — one from each
school — took home an Apple
iPad.
The organization will continue fundraising efforts in
support of new initiatives.
Those initiatives, which are yet
to be determined, will be
selected by Point Pleasant
School
District
Superintendent
Vincent
Smith, along with other
administrators such as Robert
Alfonse, director of curriculum
and instruction.
The foundation raises the
majority of funds through
community-based events.
The annual Point Pleasant
Foundation for Excellence in
Education Hall of Fame induction dinner is the largest event
of the year for the organization.
Coming up next month, the
organization will host its
Second Annual Casino Night.
The event will take place Nov.
20 at the Lobster Shanty. The
Lobster Shanty is located at 83
Channel Drive, in Point
Pleasant Beach.
Foundation members are in
the process of reaching out to
former Hall of Fame inductees
for assistance with this year’s
effort. They would especially
like members to contribute, but
welcome the support of all
community members.
For inductees who do not
live locally, foundation members are asking for a possible
sponsorship. A gaming table
can be sponsored for $250,
either through a company or
business sponsorship, or even
in combination with a group of
classmates or fellow graduates.
Table sponsors will receive
recognition via a sign that will
be placed at the table being
sponsored.
Another way to assist, if an
inductee is not in the area, is
through the donation of a gift
item, gift certificate, or cash
equivalent. The money will be
used to purchase prizes that
will be raffled off that evening.
All proceeds will benefit the
children of Point Pleasant.
Tickets to attend the event
will cost $50 per person. And,
because the foundation is a
501[c]3 charitable organization, all contributions and tickets purchased will be taxdeductible.
Foundation members stress
that inductee and community
support is vital to the success of
the organization.

Councilwoman DePaola said.
“Whether or not they were
there, we’re going to treat as a

one at borough hall actually
saw a bed bug. The borough is

reportedly basing the need for
treatment completely off the
positive indication from the
dogs.
“I have a call out to the borough administrator about
this,” Mayor Martin Konkus
said yesterday, when asked
about the bugs.
“The exterminator came to
Borough Hall early this morning with a dog that can use its
sense of smell to locate any
bedbugs,” Mr. Maffei confirmed.
He said the dog’s reaction
indicated that there was not
an infestation, but that “there
were a couple of spots that the
exterminator said may have
the bugs or their eggs.”
Borough hall’s administrative office and the hallways are
scheduled to be treated tomorrow, while borough hall is
closed for a furlough day.
As
a
precaution,
Councilwoman DePaola said
the construction department
will also be treated.
“There was a concern
amongst some employees that
there might be bedbugs in the
building,” Mr. Maffei confirmed. “When I heard of
their concern, I had the public
works department contact an
exterminator.”
In another forwarded email, this one from the borough’s joint insurance fund
representative, council was
instructed what measures to
take.
“What you need to do is
make everyone aware the
building has them, and that
steps are being taken to have
the problem taken care of,”
wrote Tamara Goble, who
handles governmental entities
for Connor Strong, in Toms

Borough council votes to
update surveillance system
By Eric Colvin
The Point Pleasant Borough
Council approved an ordinance to
appropriate funds to purchase and
install surveillance equipment at
various borough parks during a
council meeting earlier this week.
Council voted 4-2 on the final
reading of the ordinance on
Tuesday night. As was the case at
the Sept. 21 meeting, where
council introduced the ordinance,
councilmen Christopher Leitner
and Jack McHugh cast the only
votes in opposition to acquiring
the surveillance equipment.
“I support a surveillance system,” Councilman McHugh said
before casting his vote, “but it is
beyond what we can afford right
now.”
The two councilmen are the
lone Democrats on the six-person
council that consists of four
Republicans.
Each of the four Republicans
— Council President Susan
Rogers, Councilwoman Toni
DePaola
and
councilmen
William Dikun and Mitch
Remig — voted in favor of the
measure.
“The new system will enhance
and improve public safety,”
Councilwoman Rogers said. The
councilwoman said “one unified
platform will be more cost effective in long run.
“The system will have shelf life
into the future,” the councilwoman continued.
The current system has cameras at three locations in the borough. Cameras are set up at
Community Park, the recreation
facility and the department of
public works.
“All the cameras we have now
are working,” the councilwoman
explained, “but they are not connected to each other.”
The new system will link the
existing cameras to each other and
add an additional two locations.
Cameras will be added to River

Avenue Beach and the Point
Pleasant Skate Park, located on
Route 88 at McKennan Lake
Field.
The new system will have live
feeds and be viewable online.
Council hopes to streamline the
surveillance process by having one
system that can effectively monitor key locations in the borough.
In a series of votes during the
last few years, council appropriated a total of $71,817 to purchase
and install the surveillance equipment. The vote this week will add
an additional $60,000.
“Money has been allocated
over a two-year period,”
Councilwoman Rogers said.
The total cost of the security
system is estimated to be
$124,191. Council approved
Comtech Systems bid at the Sept.
21 meeting for the sale and installation of the equipment. Comtech
Systems is located in Vineland.
Residents of Waters Edge in
the borough approved of the borough using the rooftops there to
place cameras that will have a
direct view of the park.
Last month, Councilman
McHugh provided estimates of
the cost of implementing the new
system.
He said upgrades to Riverfront
Park will cost roughly $14,200
and $9,200 at the recreation center.
Councilwoman Rogers said the
new system will be composed of
about 30 cameras.
Felipe Contreras, a senior
design engineer with Remington,
Vernick & Vena Engineers, provided the breakdown of the number of cameras.
Mr. Contreras said, under the
current plan, there will be 22 cameras at Riverfront Park, two at the
River Avenue Beach, four at the
skate park, and four at the recreation center. The total number at
the department of public works is
still to be determined.
At the meeting, resident Laura
Beeden expressed concern regarding the money to be spent on the
surveillance system.
Ms. Beeden said she could not
understand how the borough is
“furloughing employees” yet has
“$120,000 to spend on cameras.”
Councilman Leitner expressed
similar feelings regarding the system.
“We’re approaching a time
when we can barely afford to pay
public works people and police
responding to these tapes,”
Councilman Leitner said recently.
“Every dollar we spend on one
thing is a dollar we cant spend on
something else, and our money is
better spent on actual personnel.
“What’s the sense of having a
surveillance system if you don't
have anybody to respond to it,”
the councilman continued.
Like Councilman McHugh,
Councilman Leitner said he is
“not against the idea in principal,”
but does not believe the borough
is in a financial position to spend
the money.
“[The system] will … improve
technology on several borough
properties and decrease vandalism,” Councilwoman Rogers said.
“[The system] will give the police
the ability to go after perpetrators
who don’t follow our laws.
“We have to use technology to
offset using additional personnel,”
the councilwoman concluded.
sign on the doors so the public
is aware of it,” Ms. Goble continued.
In
the
e-mail
Councilwoman DePaola forwarded,
Councilwoman
Rogers wrote that Mr.
Maffei’s “office has been
closed off,” and that the borough administrator was working “in the conference room”
on Thursday.
While borough hall did not
close at any point yesterday,
some employees relocated to
other parts of the building,
and one went home for part of
the afternoon.
The borough also notified
the Ocean County Health
Department. The department’s field representatives
were unavailable for comment
yesterday afternoon.
“It appears to not be a widespread problem, and seems to
be rather contained to those
two areas [the administrative
office and hallways],” the
Councilwoman DePaola said.
In addition to today’s furlough day, borough hall will be
closed Monday for Columbus
Day, and will reopen Tuesday,
Oct. 12.
Tips for identification,
eradication of bed bugs
Bed bugs are small, wingless, parasitic insects that feed
on the blood of warm-blooded animals, such as humans,
according to the website for
Tallman Scientific Bed Bug
Control.
The most common species
of bed bug is Cimex lectularius. Adult bed bugs are reddish brown, oval and wingless. They grow up to threesixteenths of an inch in
length.
Bed bugs’ peak attack period is about one hour before
dawn, and they are mostly
active at night. The are
attracted to warmth and the
presence of carbon dioxide.
It takes a bed bug approximately five minutes to feed
from its host, after which it
returns to its hiding place.
The skin’s reaction to a bite
from a bed bug resembles its
reaction to bites from mosquitoes and fleas. At times,
these lesions are confused
with poison ivy or spider
bites.
Bed bugs are efficient
hitchhikers, and can be
unknowingly transported on
luggage or clothing. Also,
these insects can live for up to
18 months without feeding,
so even a vacant house that
appears to be clean can be full
of them.
Bed bugs are adept at hiding in tiny crevices, such as
those found in beds, but they
can also be found in night-
stands, dressers and other
furniture, as well as under the
edges of wall-to-wall carpeting and inside electronic
devices, such as clocks and
phones.
Bed bugs usually congregate in groups, although they
can travel on their own up to
100 feet.
The only way to determine
whether a home is infested
with bed bugs is to find and
identify the bugs.
“If you find something you
are suspicious of being a bed
bug, capture the suspicious
bug with a piece of clear,
sticky tape and then affix the
tape to an index card or piece
of paper,” Tallman Scientific
advises. “You can then take
your captured evidence and
compare it to pictures of
known bed bugs.”
Another means of identify
a bed bug infestation is to
look for the presence of stains
from crushed bed bugs or bed
bug feces on one’s bedding.
These stains will range in
color from blood red to dark
brown, and can show up in
streaky lines.
The final method of bed
bug discovery is identifying
skin lesions as being produced by bed bugs. Bed bug
bites can occur on their own,
but they often follow a linear
pattern of several bites.
Often, the lines of bites will
run along the paths of blood
vessels close to the skin.
At the first sign of bed bug
infestation, “the best thing to
do is have an inspection,” said
Joe Montone, of Swarm
Termite and Pest Control, in
Wall Township.
“You could do a preventative inspection at any time,
but if you think you’re being
bitten or anything like that,
then obviously, you’re at the
point where you need a professional
inspection,” Mr.
Montone said.
The Internet can be useful
in identifying bed bugs and
the stains they leave behind,
Mr. Montone said.
“If you think you already
have them, you need the
inspection as soon as possible,” Mr. Montone said.
“Why even take the chance?”
Bed bugs are resilient and
difficult to eradicate, but tips
for preventing a bed bug
infestation can be found at
the
United
States
Environmental Protection
Agency
website,
at
epa.gov/pesticides/bedbugs.
Some simple precautions
include checking secondhand
furniture, beds and couches
for signs of infestation, as
well as using a protective
cover that encases mattresses
and box springs to eliminate
hiding spots, and reducing
clutter in the home in order
to reduce hiding spots for the
insects.

Lavallette
Borough may look to enforce
parking on Bay Beach Way
What’s Your Beef?
SUEANNE GOSS, The Ocean Star
Joyce and Robert Shug, of Lavallette, were among
those who enjoyed the Lavallette Voters and Taxpayers
Association’s annual beefsteak dinner, held at St.
Pio’s Church Hall, in Lavallette, Saturday night.
By Chris Sheldon
At the Lavallette Borough
Council meeting on Monday
night, Mayor Walter LaCicero
said some residents of Bay
Beach Way have requested the
borough enforce parking regulations on their private road.
Mayor LaCicero said residents of the street have complained that they would like to
park overnight on their street,
but are not allowed to do so,
per restrictions placed on the
property by the road’s homeowners’ association, Ocean
Beach One.
Mayor LaCicero said Ocean
Beach One has ownership of
the road, and the beach and
marina located on it.
“Their bylaws say there can
be no overnight parking, but
some of the residents believe
they can now abide by borough ordinances, which don’t
place that restriction,” Mayor
LaCicero said.

cancer and finding a cure in

for your support.
He explained that the only
overnight parking restrictions
the borough has are that people cannot park in the
bayfront lots overnight.
Mayor LaCicero said not all
residents have expressed this
concern, and there are some
who wish for things to remain
the same, and they do not
want overnight parking on the
road.
Mayor LaCicero said he felt
it would be a good idea for the
borough if parking regulations
were enforced on Bay Beach
Way.
“We could write summonses
and collect revenue, from
parking
tickets,”
Mayor
LaCicero said.
However, the mayor said
Ocean Beach will have to
make the request of the borough.
“We will listen to the association, not to individual residents,” Mayor LaCicero said.
He said he has spoken to
about about a “half dozen” residents, with two different
opinions on the matter.
Borough Attorney Philip
George agreed and said
because Bay Beach Way is a
private road, the borough
cannot enforce parking regulations there.
Mr. George said the homeowners’ association would
have to pass a resolution “saying that they want to go forward with this.”
He said the borough would
then have to create and adopt
an ordinance so it could
enforce parking on Bay Beach
Way.
The borough already provides snow plow and garbage
pickup services for the road.
The consensus of the council was that going forward

with regulating parking on
Bay Beach Way would be a
good thing.
“I don’t see any problems
with
it,” Councilwoman
Joanne Filippone said.”
Mayor LaCicero said he
would speak to the residents
again and explain the process
they would have to go through
in order for the borough to
enforce parking.
In January, the New Jersey
Supreme Court upheld its
decision to not hear Toms
River’s appeal seeking to keep
Bay Beach Way as part of the
township. The decision effectively ended all of Toms
River’s legal options seeking to
stop the residents move to deannex from the town and
annex with Lavallette.
Residents had complained
that a lack of services provided
by Toms River was their main
reason for seceding.
Both
Toms River
and
Lavallette passed ordinances
allowing the de-annexation of
the street to Lavallette.
The Lavallette Borough
Council passed the ordinance
during a December meeting
and
the

THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PROSTATE SCREENING
An extensive new study involving 20,000 men shows that screening men between the ages of 50
and 65 for prostate cancer saves
lives. Using the screening method
known as prostate-specific antigen
(PSA) testing, which is used to
detect early signs of cancer,
researchers found that prostate
cancer deaths were cut in half
among the screening group (compared with the non-screening
group) over a 14-year follow-up
period. However, as effective as
prostate cancer screening was
found to be, health experts are
quick to point out that wide-scale
screening programs run the risk of
over-diagnosis among men who do
not suffer any ill effects from their
cancers. Thus, screening remains
an individual choice for each man.
As a medical doctor, I cannot
stress enough the importance of
preventative care. Men over the age
of 50 should have an annual physical which should include a prostate
examination. Prostate cancer is
very serious and can be successfully treated if found in time. For
more information about PSA testing, call 732-223-7877 for our
office located at 2401 Highway 35
(Orchard
Park
Medical
Building), Manasquan or 732206-9830 for the office at 525 Jack
Martin Blvd., Suite 102, Brick.
We treat genitourinary problems
for adults and children. New
patients are always welcome.
P.S. Despite the risk of overdiagnosis, routine PSA screening
is usually recommended for men
over 50 based on the assumption
that early diagnosis and treatment
is better than standing by and
doing nothing.

The Nov. 2 election in
Lavallette will see two incumbent Republicans running
unopposed for two spots on the
borough council, and a contested race for the mayor’s seat.
During the June Republican
Primary, Lavallette Republican
M a y o r Wa l t e r L a C i c e r o
received 202 votes in his party’s
primary and Democratic mayoral candidate Britta Wenzel
received 55 votes in her party’s
primary.
Incumbent Republican councilmen Michael Stogdill and
Robert Lamb garnered 207 and
213 votes, respectively, in the
Republican Primary for council.
There are no Democratic
candidates running for the
council seats this year.
Councilmen Stogdill and
Lamb are running, uncontested,
for two open

They have four children —
Adam, 27, Christian, 25,

Mayor LaCicero is a selfemployed attorney, and is serving his first term as mayor.
Mayor LaCicero said he will
continue to make good financial
decisions for the borough if he is
re-elected.
“I want to continue to seek
other sources of revenue, so we
don’t have to raise taxes excessively in Lavallette,” Mayor
LaCicero said.
“For the past four years we’ve
found over a million and a half
dollars in grants, and found
other sources of revenue that
don’t involve raising taxes,
which includes adding Bay
Beach Way,” Mayor LaCicero
continued.

ROGERS IS THE ONE WHO CAN GET JOB DONE
FOR BORO
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Recent months have shown the incredible challenges facing us as a community and a nation.
People are concerned about what the future holds
and when the economy will improve. We feel an
urgent need for essential change. The status quo
can no longer be carried on the backs of the taxpayers. We need leaders that are not afraid to take on
the special interests, break down the acceptance of
old ideas, and fight for the change so vitally necessary to our quality of life. Susan Rogers is that
leader.
Susan is my friend and a very strong woman.
She is passionate, intense, brutally honest and executes her responsibilities to the residents with a
missionary zeal. She is outspoken and very smart.
She is unafraid of the consequences of tackling the
most controversial issues when she knows that it is
the right to do. Susan is what we need NOW.
Some say she needs to “soften” her personality.
It’s said by her opponents like an accusation. Well,
I disagree. I once had a boss tell me, “Deborah, I
didn’t hire you to win a popularity contest – I hired
you to get the job done.” Sue is in good company.
Polls indicate that Governor Christie is either considered a bully or a great leader. Should we tell him
to “soften” his personality? Or to “just get the job
done”?
The residents have made it clear that they are
not going to support paying the outlandish salaries
and benefits supported by unions. The days of a
32-hour work week with unlimited health benefits
and administrators making $200,000 per year need
to be over. Some people that are paid with our taxes
say, “Residents expect taxes to go up every year.” I
heard that comment with my own ears.
Not many would take on the unions or shared
services. There is no limit to what people will do or
say to discredit an adversary. We need Susan
Rogers.
Democrats have abandoned the residents. And
they have brought Bill Schroeder back? Ask yourself why. Do you really think a recycled
“Republican” mayor from the days of raising taxes,
increasing salaries and pumping up benefits is what
we need now? A smooth talker that will disappoint
when the chips are down? That was my experience.
I worked on Bill’s campaign when he first ran for
council. I was also the Chairwoman to Prevent the
Closure of Point Hospital when he was mayor. The
last thing that Point Pleasant needs now is Bill
Schroeder. We’ve been there, done that and felt the
pain.
One of the strangest things I ever read was written by the Democrats’ council candidate Chris
Goss. He wrote, “I’m not the smartest person in the
room.” After reading other things he wrote, I
believe him. So I thank Mr. Goss for his honesty.
Please leave the room. We need the smartest people working for us right now. Vote for Rogers,
Sabosik and Faraldi and put the smartest people to
work for you.

makes our town a coveted location to live. Our
location at the shore adds to the total package.
That’s the good news. The not-so-good news is
that slowly and inexorably, we are taxing ourselves
to the point that no one but the richest of us will
be able to stay in town.
Our public service personnel do a wonderful
job! I wish that statement could end the letter, but
unfortunately, it can’t. Things have to change. We
need to begin to look to another way. Every mention of change seems to bring pain and anguish to
some group of people in our borough. The talk of
sharing with our neighbor towns seems to bring
out the ugly in a lot of folks. Like it or not, cooperation between towns is less painful than a lot of
alternatives.
The candidates for council, Bob Sabosik, and Al
Faraldi, have a history of facing problems in the eye
in their businesses and coming up with innovative
solutions to complex and sticky problems. Now is
the time to look to our business leaders to help our
proven leaders like Sue Rogers, our Council
President and hopefully, next mayor, continue to
work toward the solutions we need in Point
Pleasant. Our mayor and council will be faced with
extremely hard decisions in the coming years. I
believe the team of Bob, Al, and Sue are up to the
task. How can I be so sure, you ask? I have a little
experience watching Bob Sabosik work through
thorny issues. Bob is my partner at Sabosik
Associates here in town. We are a family business,
and Bob is President and CEO of our firm. We are
in construction, and to say this has been an interesting year to be in business, is an understatement.
There have been many hard and often unpopular decisions that have had to be made to keep our
company vital, in a tough business climate. Bob has
made those tough choices, and our company is
stronger for them. He will bring that ability to the
council. We have a philosophy at our corporate
meetings. There are 5 people sitting at the corporate table, but there are 6 chairs. That extra chair is
for the corporation. No matter what occurs at the
meeting, the corporation must always be considered. The same goes for council meetings. there is
one more voice that must be considered at every
meeting, the taxpayer. Like the corporation is to
our family business, the taxpayer is the reason the
town functions. Al, Bob, and Sue will continue to
keep our seat at the meeting. They can and will
make the right choices for us, and will not lose
sight of the people that live in this town. Let’s all
help them do the hard work ahead . On Election
Day, vote for Sue Rogers for mayor, and Bob
Sabosik and Al Faraldi for council. Thank you.

I have to commend the clergy from St. Peter’s
Church for their recent stand on the Lord’s Prayer
at the council meeting. I have offered to attend
with them, along with some friends to make our
collective voices a little louder. Also, to run an ad in
a local paper inviting others to join with us. Just
maybe the police will need some help to control the
crowd. For too long the silent majority has looked
the other way. It is time to put Christ back in

Christmas and the baby back in the manger. Let God
remain in the pledge to the flag. Let people live the
way they choose, but don’t ask me to change. For too
long we have let people trample on the values this
country was founded upon. It was wrong for the
mayor to make a taxpayer wait until later in the meeting to express her opinion. Whatever happened to
the First Amendment? Enough already!

BOB DIKUN KNOWS ROGERS IS THE RIGHT
CHOICE
Editor, The Ocean Star:
In 2007, Bob Dikun said, Susan Rogers is “fiscally
responsible,” “character-driven,” “committed to service,” “honest,” “hard-working,” “innovative” and
“willing to tackle the difficult issues.” Dikun goes further to say, “We face serious issues in serious times!”
Susan Rogers is a “community leader” who will “take
on these issues and continue to work hard for us!”
[full-page ad in The Ocean Star, 2007].
May 30, the primary race, Bob Dikun said to
Susan Rogers, “Let’s do the right thing, get through
the primary, and get you elected as mayor.”
I couldn’t agree more, we need Susan Rogers! In
2008, Susan Rogers’ first year on council, she cut
spending, bringing the municipal tax rate increase
down to 1.8 cents, from an increase of 5.7 cents in
2007! Bill Schroeder’s first year on council taxes
increased 12.7 percent — the right choice is Sue
Rogers!
Sue’s second year on council, she was the lone no
vote against a majority that included Democrats
Chris Leitner, Jack McHugh and Shaun O’Rourke,
and on-again, off-again Republican John
Kaklamanis. Bill Schroeder’s second year on council,
the municipal tax rate increased from 31.1 cents to
37.2 [a change of 19.6 percent]. The right choice is
Sue Rogers!
In 2010, Susan Rogers’ third year on council, she
brought taxpayers a “zero” municipal tax increase! Bill
Schroeder never ever gave taxpayers a “zero” only tax
increase! In fact, he increased our taxes from 1995 to
2002 — 68 percent — in nine years! The right choice
is Sue Rogers!
Bill Schroeder was an employee of the borough, a
“special police officer,” before getting on council.
While on council and as mayor, Bill Schroeder gave
some of the richest union contracts with 4-percent
raises, more base pay for personnel, more benefits and
all paid for through our taxpayer dollars! And, he
negotiated behind closed doors.
Susan Rogers saved taxpayers $400,000 cutting
health care costs! She voted for pay freezes, increasing employee contributions to health care costs and
asked for shared sacrifice in these hard financial
times. Sue Rogers initiated and took union contract
negotiations public, no more closed-door discussions!
Finally, transparency; taxpayers don’t have to guess if
the council is giving away the farm, they can see it for
themselves.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see Bill
Schroeder is bad for Point Pleasant, his record tells us
all we need to know — 68 percent increase in nine
years! Susan Rogers is here for taxpayers — a “zero”
increase 2010, cut spending, shared services, reduced
union contracts and open up negotiations. Susan
Rogers is the honest, hard-working person we should
make our next mayor.
Vote Column “A” Susan Rogers for mayor, Bob
Sabosik and Al Faraldi for borough council!

SILENCE IS NOT THE AMERICAN ANSWER
Editor, The Ocean Star:
The issue at hand is not whether the Point
Pleasant Beach Town Council should require prayer
at its meetings, but whether the council is going to
uphold the constitutional rights of its citizens in
allowing prayer at its meetings. The first amendment
states: Congress “shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof.”
Americans are thus guaranteed the opportunity to
pray without fear of persecution or suppression.
Praying aloud publicly is legal and appropriate.
Praying citizens should not be hindered or denied
this act. Mandating a moment of silence in place of
praying aloud is effectively banning the individual’s
right to express their religious beliefs. Muting religion, smothering it and banishing it to silence are a
flagrant violation of the principle of religious freedom.
The town council would err egregiously in relegating its citizens to silence. Rather, the council has an
obligation to provide a moment to any and all who
wish to pray aloud, Attempting to substitute silence
for prayer would be unconstitutional and unacceptable. Silence is not the American answer.

QUALITY OF POINT PLEASANT EDUCATION MUST
BE PRESERVED
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Every parent with a child in our schools has experienced the quality of education Point Pleasant takes
pride in. Every parent whose child has graduated and
moved on is watching the investment repaid and the
advantages our schools provided flourish.
Tough times and huge debt have trickled down
from the state to our town, and our schools that have
almost always operated under budget. Now, the quality we depend on and maybe take for granted is
threatened, not because of something we did or the
schools did, but because the state will be withholding
millions of the tax dollars we paid them to invest in
our schools.
People can make villains of the dedicated people
that work in our schools, but firing teachers, administrators, or cafeteria staff won’t save the services that
will be sacrificed by those that don’t value our schools
or the professionals that make them so exceptional.
Activities and sports fees will restrict opportunities
for students and will limit them to families that can
more easily afford them. This will undermine the
overall excellence of programs that provide scholarship opportunities to students, and attract grants and
investments that reduce our tax burden. Those of us
who have been involved with the schools over a long
period of time know that programs that get cut never
come back.
I’m proud of the education and opportunities my
children have received and hope other parents that
value our schools will vote for candidates that value
our schools. Please help elect Bill Schroeder, Bob
Rusk, and Chris Goss.

LOOK AT YOUR TAX BILL
Editor, The Ocean Star:
How does one judge if their elected officials are
doing a good job? There is always a lot of fingerpointing and emotion as election time gets near. My
criteria is to pull out my tax bill, which I did, and note
that the much-maligned “bloc,” which includes three
Republicans and one Democrat, were able to put
together a municipal budget that makes up a smaller
percentage of my overall tax bill than it did last year
[24.15 percent last year, as opposed to 24.08 percent
this year]. This is the only spending of your tax dollars that the governing body has control over. Our
mayor and two other council persons Laurie and
Tooker voted against this zero-increased budget.
Also in anticipation of next year’s 2-percent caps
on municipal spending and an increase of 15 percent
to 22 percent in pension and health costs that is outside the cap, they have moved to share services with
the Boro to meet the demands of cutbacks that the
2-percent cap will require. These four councilmen
have made very tough decisions to save your tax dollars now and next year. I have asked them if there are
any plans for consolidation with the Boro, and I was
told an emphatic “no.” Any such move, if ever considered, may be done so by referendum. They are such
proud representatives of the “Beach”, and understand
the need to keep our own identity.
Also needed is a change in leadership in order to
bring civility and cooperation between all residents
and council persons regardless of party affiliation
back to the government. Steve Reid has promised to
work hard to accomplish this. Also, he and council
candidate Joellen Arrabito, strong fiscal conservative,
will work hard to maintain a zero increase in municipal spending if given the chance.

ROGERS & RUNNING BRING BUSINESS SENSE TO
POINT
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Sue Rogers should be elected mayor simply
because she was able to find a way to avoid raising
taxes this year. Many of you know that the council
elected to borrow $559,000 from School Tax
Deferment Funding to avoid a tax increase. I have
read on a couple of different blogs that there is no
plan to pay this back. That could not be further from
the truth. As a matter of fact, Sue has already devised
a plan to pay back $233,500. Sue’s opponent supported borrowing $1,000,000 from the School Tax
Deferment Funding from 1995 to 1997, and never
paid it back.
Sue has also orchestrated several other changes in
her three years on council such as: founded the Point
Pleasant Neighborhood Watch, took the union contract negotiations public, cut health costs by
$400,000, and shared services with Point Pleasant
Beach, which is saving each town hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Bob Sabosik and Al Faraldi are excellent candidates for council. Both of these men run successful
businesses which are succeeding in these hard economic times. It has not been easy for them, they have
had to make cuts and make necessary adjustments to
keep their business alive. They will bring this knowledge to council. They have a great plan for redefining
the bidding process for capital improvements. No
longer will we have the choice of the “lesser of two
evils.” I’m excited to see this plan take shape, and see
how much money it will save the town.
I cannot think of three more qualified people to
join our local government to make a great town even
better. Vote for Sue Rogers for mayor, Bob Sabosik
and Al Faraldi for council.

I DON’T NEED ROGERS TO BE MY FRIEND — BUT
POINT NEEDS HER FOR MAYOR
Editor, The Ocean Star:
I am supporting Sue Rogers for mayor, Bob
Sabosik and Al Faraldi for council in Point Pleasant.
Here are the facts; while taxes went down or stayed
level under our current mayor and council, they went
up by quite a bit during Mr. Schroeder’s tenure.
While both administrations used school tax deferment for their budgets; Mr. Schroeder used a
$1,000,000.00, raised taxes, and never paid it back.
This administration used about half that, gave a zerotax increase, and will allocate $233,000 back to the
fund in the upcoming 2011 budget cycle. Under Mr.
Schroeder, the size of our government expanded.
Under this administration, shared services agreements were hammered out, hard personnel choices
were made, and significant changes in health coverage were negotiated resulting in major savings for the
Boro.
I am very disappointed in the vicious personal
attacks against Sue and her family. I am all for vigorous debate in the public arena, but diatribes like Mr.
Dikun’s in the Oct. 1 edition of The Ocean Star are
inexcusable. His first argument about the schools is
just silly. Ms. Rogers is running for mayor, not the
board of education. The mayor and council have no
authority over the board of education, except in the
event of a budget defeat by the people. Only then do
they have the responsibility of cutting the budget; but
not in specific areas and they are not the final word.
The only other concrete issue he seems to address is
the shared services agreements. His argument is hard
to follow, as he does not say the agreements are a bad
thing, just that they hadn’t been studied long enough.
This is a consolidation of two construction offices
and courts in two small towns for goodness sake. You
would think that this mayor and council had upend-
ed our entire health care system and passed a law that
we didn’t want and they didn’t read in the middle of
the night! The rest of Mr. Dikun’s advertisement was
invective that does nothing to engage his opposition
in relevant debate, and certainly lessens my opinion
of him and those he represents.
I don’t need Sue to be my BFF [best friend forever]. I need her to be a hard-working, smart-working,
and honest mayor. I need her to work with council,
county, and state officials to try and lessen the crushing weight of taxes in this state. I believe she will do
those things. I believe that Bob and Al will work
alongside the other council members to bring about
the hard choices that officials all over this country
have to make before we dig a hole our children’s children won’t be able to climb out of. Respectfully submitted,

WHY I AM VOTING FOR STEPHEN REID
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Point Pleasant Beach and towns throughout New
Jersey are at a fiscal/managerial crossroad where the
next few years will lay the foundation for the future
direction of the decades to come. Not only has the
funding stream from Trenton been drastically
reduced, but the survival of small towns, such as ours
is in jeopardy. Though I am relatively new to Beach,
I had the great opportunity to meet Stephen Reid
last year and the following are the reasons why I am
voting for him for mayor.
Stephen Reid brings a wealth of professional experience with regards to navigating through the state
and local governmental systems. Not only is he the
right candidate to serve as the voice for the Beach,
but he will work his hardest to ensure that the independence and sustainability of our town remains
intact. Of the many great assets that Point Pleasant
Beach has to offer, perhaps our schools are the greatest. As the father of a young child in the G. Harold
Antrim School, Stephen Reid has a vested interest in
our schools. Thus, he will ensure they retain their
rightful and well-earned place at the top of Ocean
County and New Jersey schools. Lastly, and perhaps
most importantly, Stephen Reid is Point Pleasant
Beach born and bred. Following in the footsteps of
his parents, he is deeply involved in the extracurricular activities of our town. As mayor, I am sure that he
will bring the same attributes that he instills in our
youth as wrestling coach – determination, hard work,
ethical behavior and success.

THANKS FOR SUPPORT OF BAY HEAD SCHOOL
FOUNDATION’S ANNUAL DUCK DERBY
Editor, The Ocean Star:
The Bay Head School Foundation’s third annual
Great Bay Head Duck Derby was a tremendous success, thanks to the many months of preparation by
Ed Convey and Barry Pearce. Ed and Barry did a
yeoman’s job of coordinating all aspects of this
important fundraiser for the Foundation, the net proceeds of which fund the mini-grants awarded to Bay
Head School teachers and volunteers for innovative
curriculum and extra-curricular projects. So thank
you, gentlemen, and your hardworking team.
There were just so many people and businesses
who helped to make this event happen that I fear listing names in case I miss a few, but for those of you
who lent a hand please know your effort is very much
appreciated. That being said, a special thanks is warranted for Bay Head Board of Education members
Jay Cornell and Ben Hinds, who as our race officiants
waded in Scow Ditch for hours overseeing the more
than 800 rubber ducks.
The Foundation is pleased to announce that the
grand prize of a new tandem bike, courtesy of Shore
Cycling, was won by Bay Head School students
Braedon, Connor and Chloe Brenna. Second place
earned Bay Head School student Julia Paolella a new
sea kayak from Jersey Paddler. Bay Head School
Students Liam and Mia Preyer took third place, and
will share a $300 gift certificate to the Beach House
Classic Boardshop. We also had a prize for the fourth
place finisher, the duck sponsored by Bay Head resident Jim Kellogg, who received a $250 gift certificate
to Point Pleasant Bicycle.
Thanks also to the mayor and council for authorizing the use of Scow Ditch, the municipal parking

REAR VIEW
A buttock (or “butt”) lift does not involve adding
structure or volume to the backside. Often confused
with buttock implants and body contouring, a buttock
lift simply raises and tightens the skin over the buttocks, thereby eliminating dimples, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The procedure may be undertaken in conjunction with a thigh lift to improve sagging thighs. A
thigh lift involves making two parallel, crescent-shaped
incisions across the top of each thigh that extend from
the crease of the leg near the groin all the way around
to the buttock. For a buttock lift, an incision is made
above the crease to remove fat and skin. While results
are permanent, further weight gain might stretch skin
once again.
If the idea is to reduce the size of your posterior, a
plastic surgeon will often recommend liposuction be
done in tandem with a buttock lift to achieve the effect
of drastic, yet natural looking weight loss. For this par-
ticular procedure, there is no one method used by all
plastic surgeons. The way your case is handled
depends on your body shape, the amount of skin and
fat to be removed, and the state of your general
health. To request a consultation, please call SEA
SHORE PLASTIC AND HAND SURGERY CENTER.
P.S. The total healing time for most buttock lifts is
usually four to six months. Bruising and swelling usually subside within a month.

Breast cancer walk
slated for Oct. 17
Join the fight against breast
cancer and the movement to create a world with more birthdays
by participating in the 16th
Annual American Cancer
Society Making Strides Against
Breast Cancer 5K walk, on
Sunday, Oct. 17 in Point
Pleasant Beach, starting at 8
a.m.
This event unites the entire
community to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors, and
supports the society’s mission to
help people stay well, find cures
and fight back against the disease.
To register or to receive more
information,
visit
www.cancer.org/stridesonline or
call 800-227-2345.
This year, more than 207,000
American women will receive
the terrifying news that they
have breast cancer, and more
than 40,000 will die from the
disease.
This includes:
• In New Jersey, 6,820 women
will be diagnosed, and 1,430
women will die in 2010.
• In Monmouth and Ocean
counties 1,074 women will be
diagnosed, and 242 women will
die in 2010. In Ocean County,
542 new cases of breast cancer
will be diagnosed, and 135
women will die in 2010.
This event brings out more
than 10,000 walkers each year.
This year, Peter Criss, best
known as one of the founding
members of the rock band KISS,
will be walking in Point Pleasant
Beach.
Mr. Criss has been a role
model for aspiring rock musicians for more than three
decades. Now, he hopes to be a
role model in another sense —
to help raise the public’s consciousness of the little-known
fact that men can get breast cancer too.
As a high-profile celebrity,
Mr. Criss hopes his heavy metal
credentials will help mitigate the
stigma around breast cancer for
men.
Registration will take place at
8 a.m. on Oct. 17, and the walk
will begin at 10 a.m.
The walk will start at the
Silver Lake Lot on Arnold
Avenue, then head east to Ocean
Avenue.
Walkers will proceed north on
Ocean Avenue to Broadway,
where they will then head east
on Broadway, to the boardwalk.
They will then walk south on
the boardwalk, to the New Jersey
Avenue exit ramps.
The course will continue
south on Ocean Avenue to
Elizabeth Avenue, where walkers will walk west, past Lake of
the Lilies, to St. Louis Avenue.
On St. Louis Avenue, the
walkers will head north to
Newark Avenue, then travel west
to Washington Avenue.
Walkers will then progress
east to Baltimore Avenue, and
from Baltimore Avenue, the
course heads north to Forman
Avenue.
At Forman Avenue, the walkers will head east, back to Ocean
Avenue, where they will head
north to the entrance of the
Silver Lake Lot, completing the
event.
The distance of the walk is 3.4
miles, or approximately 5 kilometers.

Photos Courtesy of TOM WATTERS
One of the greatest joys in Tom Watters’ life comes from
spending time with his children [left], including his 11-yearold son, Tommy, and 6-year-old daughter, Alyssa. Mr. Watters
shared a moment with his father, also named Tom [right], on
a family vacation to Key West, Fla., a few years ago. For over
12 years, Mr. Watters — a Point Pleasant resident — and his
fellow Elks volunteers [above] have dedicated their spare time
to the Special Needs Children’s Committee of Point Pleasant
Elks Lodge No. 1698.
Point Elks’ Tom Watters has ‘special’
place in his heart for area children
he Benevolent and
Protective Order of
the Elks is known
nationwide as a charitable, fraternal organization,
committed to building community bonds. One Elk who fits that
description to a tee is Point
Pleasant Elk Tom Watters, 47.
Mr. Watters’ story begins in
Kearny, as the oldest sibling born
to parents Tom and Miriam
Watters.
Mr. Watters has one brother,
Tim, and one sister, Melissa, both
42.
“My father is retired from the
United States Postal Service
[USPS], and my mother worked
for
the
Kearny
Police
Department. She was the ticket
woman,” Mr. Watters laughed.
Mr. Watters is a member of
Kearny High School’s Class of
1980, and continued his education at DeVry Technical
Institute, in Woodbridge. He
graduated from that school in
1982 with a degree in electronics,
and immediately went to work.
“Like my father, I also went to
work for the United States Postal
Service,” said Mr. Watters. “I
started in their Jersey City bulk
center in 1982 as a mechanic,
then I was soon transferred to
their DVD facility in Kearny
[also known as their service vehicle maintenance center], where I
worked for 17 years,” Mr. Watters
recalled.
In 1999, Mr. Watters was
transferred to the USPS’ facility
in Eatontown, a much shorter
commute. In the Eatontown
location, Mr. Watters has worked
as a maintenance supervisor for
the past 11 years.
“I supervise employees that go
to small offices and do maintenance there,” Mr. Watters
explained. “That includes HVAC
[heating, ventilating and air-conditioning], toilets, electricity,
counters, and masonry.
“Anything someone would do
at home,” Mr. Watters added,
with a smile.
Having resided in North Jersey
for a significant portion of his
life, Mr. Watters and his family
made the move to Point Pleasant
T
in 1998, and could not be happier with their decision.
Something that accompanied
the journey of his family to the
borough was Mr. Watters’ decision to join Point Pleasant Elks
Lodge No. 1698.
“As soon as I got down here, I
joined,” Mr. Watters said.
Indirectly, it was the Elks
organization that brought Mr.
Watters and his wife, Carolyn,
together, as both of their fathers
were longtime friends and members of Harrison-East Newark
Elks Lodge No. 2326.
“I saw and heard what the Elks
do, and decided that I would get
involved in it down here,” Mr.
Watters said. “I guess you could
say that everything came full circle for me.”
He wasted no time in dedicating his efforts to the organization, specifically its Special Needs
Children’s Committee, which
coordinates activities for children
with physical and developmental
handicaps, or medical needs associated with their care.
“Along with my wonderful
committee, this has been my sole
goal for the last 12 years,” Mr.
Watters declared.
Mr. Watters described how the
New Jersey Elks run Camp
Moore, in Haskell, a
state project that provides special needs children with a summer
camp experience.
“The kids will spend
a week up at the camp,
and then we [the Point
Pleasant Elks] bring the
whole camp down here
to the area for the summer picnic, which is
usually about 70 or 80
kids,” Mr. Watters said.
The
committee
chairman said about 250
people help to prepare
the Point Pleasant Elks’
summer picnic event for
Camp Moore every
year.
“Being a part of the

Watters humbly stated. “We try golf outings, and donate medical
equipment, as well,” Mr. Watters
added.
In the past, Mr. Watters said
his committee has provided
crutches, canes and wheelchairs,
among other items, to those in
need.
“They call us, and we can give
them [this equipment] free of
charge,” he said. “Once, we
donated a wheelchair to
Jenkinson’s for handicapped visitors to use on the boardwalk.”
Mr. Watters extolled the members of his committee for their
work, noting that the group
includes members ranging in age
from 40 to 87.
“We have World War II veterans, Korean War veterans, and I’d
put them up against anybody,”
Mr. Watters said.
In addition to his philanthropic work, one of the brightest parts
of Mr. Watters’ life is his family,
including his wife Carolyn, son
Tommy, 11, and daughter Alyssa,
6. He and his family are parishioners of St. Martha’s Roman
Catholic Church, in the borough.
“I coach baseball for my two
children — my son is in the Babe
Ruth League and my daughter
just began T-ball,” Mr. Watters
explained.
“I’ve been coaching Tommy
for five years, and
whether Alyssa wants to
keep doing it [after this
season], we will see,” he
grinned.
“Between time with
my family and my volunteer work, there’s not too
much spare time,” Mr.
Watters said.
“You want that time
with your family, so any
time the phone rings,
you’ll try like hell to get
the job done,” he continued. “But I have the support of my family in
everything I do, and for
that, I’m very grateful.”
However, when he
does get a few hours of
free time, Mr. Watters
smiles and says he can be
found on these fall weekends in his garage, watching football games —
“
“
We’re proud to
support him in any
way we can.

Wife
specifically, cheering on his
favorite New York Giants.
Mr. Watters describes himself
a “die-hard fan of Big Blue,” but
fellow Special Needs Children’s
Committee
member
John
Kaufman described his fellow
Elks as “an outgoing man, who’s
very concerned about meeting
the needs of area special needs
children,” and “a wonderful person.”
Mr. Watters’ predecessor as
chairman of the Special Needs
Children’s Committee, Dan
DiCorcia, testified to his successor’s passion for the group’s worthy cause.
“Nobody works harder for the
children than Tom Watters,” Mr.
DiCorcia said. “I ran that committee for over 10 years, and
when I was ready to step down, I
couldn’t have been happier to
turn it over to a wonderful man
like Tom.”
Mr. DiCorcia added that Mrs.
Watters is also very active in
fundraising for the committee’s
events and public functions.
Mrs. Watters also spoke glowingly of her husband.
“We’re very proud to support
him in any way we can,” she said.
“A lot of people join clubs for
different reasons, but Tom’s was
always to help the kids,” Mrs.
Watters said.
“We were on a family vacation
on Sanibel Island, in Florida. At
the time, we were all on the
beach, and Tom received a phone
call from a member of the Special
Needs
Committee,”
Mrs.
Watters recalled. “There was an
individual who required the use
of a wheelchair, and despite the
fact that he was on vacation, Tom
made all the necessary phone
calls to ensure that person
received the wheelchair they
needed.”
Mrs. Watters proudly stated
that Mr. Watters’ volunteer work
has truly become a team effort in
their household.
“We’re all committed to the
cause — it’s a family event now.
We’re very proud of him,” Mrs.
Watters declared. “He’s a very
good man, who’s in it for all the
right reasons.”
Tom is a man who’s
very concerned about
special needs children.

PUTTING ‘UNITY ’ BACK IN ‘COMMUNITY ’ IN POINT
PLEASANT
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Point Pleasant is an outstanding town with a terrific community. The town is not divisive despite
what we often read or hear coming from a select few
with their own personal agenda and resources. That
is why I started to have a voice approximately five
years ago: to have a positive impact for the community in Point Pleasant. I hope everyone will take the
time and be heard in the upcoming election for
mayor and council in November. If we do not speak
up, a few will continue to segregate the town for votes
and pit neighbor against neighbor as we have seen
over the last three years. It is not too late. The choice
is black and white and not colorful advertisements
and signs.
We need to break from the current personal agenda politics with hidden plans and decisions. We need
to break from controversial decisions made allegedly
on our behalf that are quickly put through with little
or no notice or discussion by the council or the public. We need to break from quick and under investigated decisions made simply to influence/impact
elections. We need to break from these council votes
that are partisan [even with one brave Republican
crossing the party vote to oppose these poor decisions] and only decided by the tie-breaking mayor as
he exits office and simply supports his chosen candidate regardless of the impact on the community.
We need to break from the block of three on council and controlled by one. We need to stop the false
statements and PowerPoint presentations that
attempt to divide our town. We need change from
the last three troubling years. We need to put unity
back in community and bring this town together for
the common good so we can continue to be great.
We need Schroeder, Goss and Rusk. Let your voice
be heard and vote!

HOW DID THE RECALL GET STARTED IN THE
FIRST PLACE?
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Recently, I had a conversation with someone new
to our town. They wondered what were the grounds
for recalling the mayor. It was an interesting thought.
It has been a long time and things sort of morph into
something else.
No one went around then saying sign this petition
to recall the mayor because he is difficult to get along
with. No one said, sign this petition because the
council members don’t want to work with him, we
need a mayor who is easy to get along with. By the
way, just because you are easy to get along with does-

n’t mean you can tackle difficult problems.
No, this all started, when Mayor Barrella said that
our town was in financial trouble and it could affect
our future. He put together a committee of business
people to work on a plan to bring additional revenue
into the town. “The Revenue Committee” became
known as the “Parking Committee” and they were
prepared to bring a plan to the council for pay parking throughout the town using the newest technology.
They actually never got to do that. Rumors started flying around about the parking plan. Parking
meters and parking boxes, too many signs...we must
stop this from happening and the way to do this was
to recall the mayor...
What happened? The recall petition came about.
But let’s be honest, some people probably signed
because they had been told they were signing against
the parking plan, some people probably signed to just
stop being pressured to sign, some people probably
signed because they didn’t like the man and some
probably signed because they could not get over the
fact that their candidate lost.
The mayor heard what the people said and he has
responded over and over again, that he would not
mention the “P” word again.
So why vote to recall him? Did he try to push a
Police Director on us? Did he want to dismantle our
courts, our building department, our school system?
Did he want to lower the Hotel/Motel tax? No!
I think the record is clear on who wanted to do
that. I don’t see anyone trying to recall Hennessy,
Dyer, Rizzo or Cervino. I do believe that had Mr.
Cervino remained on the ticket, the residents of this
town would have shown their displeasure with him
by casting their vote for someone else.
So why not let the man finish out his term. Why
not preserve the office of the mayor and let any future
mayor have the ability to present ideas without the
fear of being recalled.
I would ask that you please vote “No” to the recall.

A SPECIAL MEETING WILL SERVE NO PUBLIC
PURPOSE
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Mayor Barrella has scheduled a special meeting for
Oct. 12, 2010 to review the legal services provided by
our current borough attorney, Kevin Riordan.
Specifically, Mayor Barrella’s complaint is that Mr.
Riordan told the mayor that the Office of
Administrative Courts scheduled a meeting to
review our shared services municipal court agreement, whereas Mayor Barrella believes that the
meeting was actually requested by Councilwoman
Susan Rogers. During the last governing body meeting, Mr. Riordan explained that it was possible that
Ms. Rogers had requested the meeting, but that he
had only learned about the meeting from a notice he
received from the AOC, and based on that notice,
had opined that the meeting had been scheduled by
the AOC.
In my opinion, Mayor Barrella’s decision to call
this special meeting to publicly address his concerns
about Mr. Riordan is simply one more example of
our current mayor’s abuse of power and lack of civility. In the past, members of the governing body have

Point Pleasant Beach Fire Company No. 2 Lt. Ira Waldman gave a group of pre-kindergarten

stand that working smoke
alarms are needed in every
home, on every level, including
the basement, outside each
sleeping area, and inside each
bedroom,” the fire chief said.
“And, if a smoke alarm is 10
years old or older, it needs to be
replaced.”
“Through our educational
program, we encourage children
to become active in creating a
fire-safe environment in their
home,” Chief Brodeur said.
“In addition to the classroom
lessons, we provide material for
them to bring home and review
with their families,” he continued. “We hope that they will
make sure that there is a fire
escape plan in place for their
home, and that they have working smoke detectors.”
Smoke alarms can mean the
difference between life and
death in a fire, according to local
fire officials and the NFPA.
NFPA statistics show that
working smoke alarms cut the
chance of dying in a fire nearly
in half — but, the alarms must

be working properly to do so.
The association’s data shows
that many homes have smoke
alarms that aren’t working or
maintained properly, usually
because of missing, disconnected or dead batteries. Roughly
two-thirds of all home fire
deaths result from fires in homes
with no smoke alarms or no
working smoke alarms.
Through the outreach programs in the local schools and
tomorrow’s family-oriented fire
safety fair, residents can learn
more about the power of smoke
alarms, newer options for
installing and maintaining them
properly, and ultimately, how to
better protect their loved ones

occasionally had concerns about professional services. These matters have always been addressed during
closed session, as permitted by the Open Public
Meetings Act. Closed session is the proper forum for
addressing professional service issues.
Mayor Barrella is clearly using his authority to call
a special meeting as an opportunity to embarrass Mr.
Riordan and to afford himself the opportunity to act
as both prosecutor and judge in a court-like setting.
Mayor Barrella is attempting to use taxpayer money
to fund his own political agenda. I have a scheduling
problem with the Oct. 12 meeting, but was considering rearranging my schedule to attend the meeting,
so to avoid Mayor Barrella criticizing my lack of
attendance. However, it is clear to me that this special meeting serves no legitimate public purpose.
Mayor Barrella’s issues are not emergent, and can be
addressed at the next regular meeting on Oct. 19,
2010. In addition, I am certain that allowing this special meeting to take place will only prove to be another blemish on the history of Point Pleasant Beach,
arising out of Mayor Barrella’s behavior.
Mayor Barrella is a vindictive man. He regularly
uses his position as mayor to embarrass people who
have challenged him. I have personally been a victim
of the mayor’s forked tongue and disrespectful comments while serving with him as a member of the
governing body. The role of the mayor is to keep
peace in our town, yet Mayor Barrella uses the gavel
as a means to create chaos, rather than to keep order.
I cannot think of any person who is more poorly suited to serve as mayor of our town. Please vote “yes” for
the recall on the November ballot, so that we can
once again have a mayor who can work with others
and demonstrate a willingness to keep the peace in
our town.

COUNCILMAN DYER DECLARES HE WILL NOT

BARRELLA
Editor, The Ocean Star:
The mayor has scheduled a special meeting for
October 12, 2010 to discuss the status of the
Borough Attorney, Kevin Riordan. As the mayor, he
has the authority to call special meetings. However,
what I believe he is really planning to do, on Oct. 12,
is to hold a public trial, which he will control, and
allow the members of the public to attack and belittle Mr. Riordan. As a councilman, I have no ability to
stop the Mayor from calling this meeting. My only
option is to choose not to attend, with the hope that
my absence will prevent a quorum of the governing
body. That is my plan.
When I campaigned in 2009, I promised to help
put the “pleasant” back in Point Pleasant Beach. I
Fire Department Fire Safety
Fair will take place tomorrow,

p.m,. at Point Pleasant Beach
Fire Company No. 2, on Laurel
Avenue, across from Foodtown.
All are welcome.
The Point Pleasant Beach
Fire Department offers the following tips for making sure
home smoke alarms are maintained and working properly:
• Test smoke alarms at least
once per month using the test
button, and make sure everyone
in the home knows their sound.
• If an alarm “chirps,” warning
the battery is low, replace the
battery right away.
• Replace all smoke alarms,
including alarms that use 10year batteries and hard-wired
alarms, when they are 10 years
old — or sooner, if they do not
respond properly when tested.
• Never remove or disable a
smoke alarm.

knew that many of our residents were unhappy with
the conduct of our governing body, and unhappy
with the general lack of civility in our town and public meetings. I admit that I have been unable to fulfill that promise, despite my best efforts to date. The
problem is Vincent Barrella prefers to create chaos
rather than peace.
Some may criticize me for my unwillingness to
attend the Oct. 12 special meeting, feeling that I have
some how failed in my duties as a councilman. I think
that my absence from this meeting is exactly what I
should do to fulfill my duties to our town. This is not
a question of politics. This is a question of what is
right and what is wrong. The role of the borough
attorney is to provide legal services, specifically to the
members of the governing body. The Open Public
Meetings Act permits the governing body to address
matters involving personnel, including Borough professionals, in closed session, and that is how they’ve
always been handled. By allowing Mayor Barrella to
conduct a public trial of our borough attorney, not
only we will further diminish the reputation of our
town, but also further diminish the types of future
professional relationships we will have. What attorney will ever want to work for Point Pleasant Beach?
What type of relationship will that attorney have
with our council members if he or she has to constantly fear the wrath of any future mayor employing
the power to call a special meeting solely to ridicule
that attorney?
It has been a difficult year to be a member of our
governing body. Looking forward, I know that the
biggest issues that our governing body will face concern our municipal budget. We need a mayor who is
more concerned about the good of the town than he
is his own political and personal agendas. In
November, Point Pleasant Beach voters will have the
opportunity to choose new leadership for our town. I
hope that all will vote “yes” for the recall and select
new governing body members who are willing to
cooperate with those of us who have tried to serve the
town well this year.

Food addiction is a misunderstood phenomenon. I have
many clients who come in
thinking they are addicted to
certain types of foods. This
may or may not be true. Let
me explain.
The food industry would
like you to believe that you, the
consumer, are in control over
what you purchase and, ultimately, eat. The food industry
goes out of their way and
spends lots of money trying to
figure out exactly how to
increase your odds of purchasing certain foods.
It starts in the processing of
the foods, where sugar or highfructose corn syrup is added to
just about everything.
The manipulation continues
on the television, in print, and
in the stores themselves, with
foods being promoted in ways
that are certain to catch your
attention.
Now, some people appear to
be immune to these manipulations, and others are drawn
right in. A person can be
drawn in for many different
reasons. Emotionally, food can
provide lots of comfort, and
the tactics employed by the
food industry work to draw
you in.

education meetings,” Mayor
William Curtis said this week.
“She always questioned members of the council on town
issues, and always had something intelligent to say.
“I admired her for what she
was doing, because she made
you want to reflect and find a
better way to do things for the
community,” he added.
According to Bay Head
School
Principal
Walter
Therien, Ms. Mastrobuono
made arrangements before her
passing for the Victoria
Mastrobuono Prize for Civic
Improvement, a $300 scholarship that is awarded yearly to a
graduating senior of Point
Pleasant Beach High School,
who is also a resident of Bay
Head, and a graduate of the
Bay Head School.
“The scholarship was made
possible by the heartfelt generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Marx
Renzulli, of Bay Head, who
wanted to recognize her [Ms.
Mastrobuono’s] love of the
arts,” Principal Therien said.
Among Ms. Mastrobuono’s
bequests was a gift to the
Algonquin Arts Theater,
located on Main Street in
Manasquan, which received a
$260,000 gift from the estate
of the former Bay Head resident.
“We are extremely honored
to have been included in Ms.
Mastrobuono’s will,” said Bill
Whitefield, Algonquin Arts
executive director. “She was an
amazing, unique woman, who
dedicated so much of her life
to the arts and education, and
we are proud to help ensure
that her name is not forgotten.”
Ms. Mastrobuono was an
advocate, ticket buyer, donor
and annual attendee at
Algonquin Arts benefits —
always purchasing works of
art, theater officials said.
“She was always ready to
praise all that was creative,
courageous and challenging,”
theater officials said. “She was
a woman of great generosity
who possessed a passion for
the arts and all that is good in
humanity.”

On the flip side, in addition
to drawing you in, the food
industry wants you to keep
coming back for more. Is sugar,
in any form, addictive? Do you
have to avoid it at all costs in
order to stay in control?
The author of the column I
read thinks that it is an all-ornothing deal. She has to avoid
all junk food because she is
addicted.
I disagree, respectfully.
While she is correct in saying
that food addiction is unlike
other addictions because you
have to eat, her implication
that quitting the addictive substance is the only answer is
incorrect.
It certainly is easier to avoid
cigarettes than food — however, a person can make peace
with food. The work lies in
making peace with whatever is
driving the eating, and not
with the food that is being
eaten. That is the difference.
Now, if you want to go
through life avoiding junk food
or processed sugar and carbs,
be my guest. It is a healthier
way to eat.
But let’s say that you eat
something that kicks the craving into overdrive. Now what?
You constantly fight the craving and restrict, only to throw
yourself back into the whole
cycle? How about doing the
work on what it is that drives
the eating?
It is possible to overcome
food addiction, but the answer

is not in dieting or restricting.
The answer lies in the reason
for the overeating.
My sympathies go out to the
author of the column, who is in
the depths of grief for her
daughter. She is eating in an
effort to comfort herself.
As she puts it, she is not
used to caring for herself. If she
can learn to do that without
using food, she will find that
junk food will no longer have
the power over her that is does
now.
There are answers out there.
It is not as helpless as she
implies.
Along these lines, I want to
remind you that there are still a
few openings for my Diet
Recovery Group. If food
addiction is something that
you think you suffer from, this
group can help.
Contact me at the number
below for more information.
Until next time, eat healthy,
be happy.

officials said.
Among the improvements
will be an upgrade of theater
seating.
Ms. Mastrobuono already
sponsored the upgrade of two
seats in Row J of the theater,
and the remainder of Row J
will be designated as a gift
from her.
Funds will also help establish the theater’s new capital
campaign,
designed
to
improve patron comfort and
accessibility, according to theater officials.
• And, to help the
Algonquin Arts Theater meet
the current economic challenges that all arts groups face
these days, a portion of Ms.
Mastrobuono’s gift will be put
toward the theater’s general
operating fund.

School foundation planning Locks of Love fundraiser
Featuring...
424 Main Street • Avon-By-The-Sea
732-361-8250
www.ArtNsoleFootwear.com
La Luz Salon and the Bay
Head School Foundation are
joining forces to raise lots of hair
— and money — to benefit
Locks Of Love and the Bay
Head School.
Salon owner Luz Zavala-Rose,
who is celebrating being in business in Bay Head for 15 years, is
spearheading this effort in memory of her sister, Diana Claudio,
who succumbed to cancer 15
years ago.
The Bay Head School
Foundation [BHSF] is proud to
partner with La Luz Salon in
offering two fantastic ways to
support the children in the community and throughout the
United States.
First, the BHSF encourages all
of its friends, young and old, with
long hair to keep growing it, and
to let La Luz Salon give them a
shorter hair style to start the new
school year and fall season off in
style.
A blunt cut is complimentary.
La Luz Salon will also accept a
donated ponytail if the donor cuts
it at home or at another salon, as
long as it is 10 inches or longer,
braided and in a sealed, Ziploc
bag.
Hair that has been colored or
permed can be used, but bleached
hair cannot.
It takes six to 10 donated
ponytails to make one cranial
prosthetic hairpiece, at a cost to
Locks Of Love of $1,000.
La Luz Salon will have
appointments
throughout
September and October for
Locks Of Love haircuts, and the
salon will package and send
donated ponytails to Locks Of
Love, which is a nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to
financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term
medical hair loss from any diagnosis, including alopecia areata.
There will be prizes for the
student [age 20 or younger] and
adult [age 21 or older] who
donate the longest locks.
Second, save the date, as the
BHSF invites the adults to celebrate the success of its Locks of
Love Campaign at a cocktail
party on Oct. 24, from 4 to 7
p.m., at the New Jersey Museum
of Boating, located at 1800 Bay
Ave., in nearby Point Pleasant.
There will be a live and silent
auction, with proceeds benefiting
Locks Of Love and the Bay
Head School Foundation, both
501[c]3 nonprofit, charitable
organizations.
Information regarding tickets
to the event, and the items up for
auction, will follow.
For additional information,
please call or e-mail Luz ZavalaRose, at La Luz Salon, at 732892-6363 or [email protected]

Foundation President Shannon
Curtis at 732-899-1178 or [email protected]

Blood drive slated for Oct. 19
at Ocean County College
New Jersey Blood Services
[NJBS], a division of the New
York Blood Center [NYBC], is
calling upon the communities it
serves to donate blood.
A blood drive will be held on
Tuesday, Oct. 19, at the Ocean
County College Center Annex,
on College Drive in Toms
River, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Recent stormy weather, and
the Labor Day holiday weekend, have resulted in fewer
donations, and a less than twoday supply of O-negative and
B-negative blood for patients in
need.
Donations from O-negative
and B-negative types are particularly needed, immediately.
NJBS calls upon blood
donors to help achieve its goal
of a five- to seven-day supply of
these types.
Of course, healthy people of
all blood types and ethnicities
are also encouraged to donate
and help save lives.
As students return to school
and the summer of 2010 comes
to a close, we must remember
that the need for blood is constant. Hospital use of blood
products remains high due to
surgeries, emergencies and care
of cancer patients.
About one in seven people
entering a hospital needs blood.
People with Rh-negative
blood, including A-negative,
B-negative and O-negative,
account for just 15 percent of
the population, yet their blood
can be safely transfused to the
remaining 85 percent.
People with O-negative
blood are known as “universal
donors,” because their blood
can be transfused into anyone.
Type O-negative blood is
found in just 6 percent of the
population, but is used more
often by patients with other
blood types, especially in emergency rooms and trauma situations.

have sponsored Little Doctors
Program blood drives. NYBC

“The movie ‘The Social Network’
recently made its debut to rave
reviews. What are your thoughts on
social networks like Facebook?”
“It’s good to an extent, for people who graduated high school,
so they can keep in touch with
their friends.”
“I think it’s a great way to see
what all of your friends are
doing at one time.”
“I think it’s a good way to connect with your friends.”

that there are those who can’t effectively communicate with one another. We can not have a group of people governing that don’t talk to each
other!
I have known Stephen personally for many years and I know he will
work tirelessly for you. He will represent “all” of the people of Point
Pleasant Beach...no personal agendas...no alliances with anyone...just
his ideas as to what makes this town such a wonderful place to live and
his desire to maintain it.
I encourage you to contact Stephen and ask him any questions or
express any concerns you may have about his platform and his vision for
the future. Do not to rely on what “you heard”...find out the truth. It is
only then that you can empower yourself to make an educated decision
as to who you would like to vote for to be our next mayor.
If you decide you want Stephen Reid as the next mayor of Point
Pleasant Beach, you must first vote “yes” for the recall and then vote for
Stephen Reid. Thank you.

DIXON, CORBALLY & MORRONGIELLO ARE THE FUTURE
Editor, The Ocean Star:
As a former female candidate for Point Pleasant Beach Council, I
would normally be supportive of having two women represent our
interests on the governing body. However, this year I cannot in good
conscience pull their lever in the election booth.
Councilwoman Tooker is a nice woman who unfortunately has
directed her enthusiasm in many ways intrusive to our residents. She
advocates having us receive approval from some appointed board to
plant/relocate/dismantle trees and other foliage on our own properties.
Moreover, as an employee of the town’s school system, Ms. Tooker will
be precluded from interceding in any effort from Point Boro to take over
our schools. I believe that’s on the horizon, and we need every vote we
can get to make sure this doesn’t happen.
Ms. Arrabito I do not know, but she’s actively running on the
Republican slate, which has been railroading through the consolidation
of our court and building departments with Point Boro, to our immense
detriment, both financially and in terms of our way of life.
That’s why I’m voting for John Dixon as mayor, and Mike Corbally
and John Morrongiello for council this year. Both John Dixon and Mike

have proven themselves to responsible, knowledgeable and civil members of the governing body in the past — and I’m sure they will continue to conduct themselves as such if elected. John Morrongiello located
his family here permanently after 9/11, when he fought as a New York
City firefighter at Ground Zero for five months. Although he never
talks about it, he sustained injuries there which forced him into early
retirement. This man, who put his life on the line to save others, will
fight as hard for us on council.
I’m ashamed of the conduct of our current mayor and council. Too
many people here have too many second agendas and egos. Let’s get
back to the time when honest debate occurred on council, when the residents’ opinions were heard and civility dictated. We need a governing
body that’s not fighting among themselves, but fighting for us. That’s
why we should elected the team of Dixon, Corbally and Morrongiello.
Without all three, I believe the future of our town is definitely at risk of
being absorbed by our town to the west.

ABANDONED ANIMALS NEED SHELTER & LOVING CARE
Editor, The Ocean Star:
We rescued 3 young adult and extremely friendly cats on Tuesday of
this week, when we received a call from Jack Neary, “Muskrat Jack”, saying a woman had called him to say while she was walking her dogs over
by Slade Dale Bird Sanctuary at the end of Dorsett Dock Road in Point
Boro, she found a medium-sized dog carrier with 3 cats in it. The cats
were abandoned and left there to die all the way down by the water in
all the bad weather we had.Thanks to Jack who immediately went right
over to rescue them and later stated they had to have been there for a
couple of days with no food, no water, no litter box, nothing…? The cats
appear to be healthy, a little scared, but very friendly and were definitely someone’s pets. If anyone at all has ANY information that may be
helpful to us, your name will be kept confidential so please find it in your
heart to do the right thing and call me. Please call Patti Ascolese at 732899-6487 or e-mail me at [email protected] The cats are being fostered by Point Paws Point Pleasant’s Animal Welfare Committee as of
right now and are definitely adoptable and adorable. This situation
could have, and should have been handled in a very different way.
It seems that sometimes an elder person may die and their family
may not want the pets their relatives may have had, so instead they think

this is an easy way out, and it is a heartless, sick way
out. With the economy the way it is today, others
who may have had to leave there homes due to bad
times sometimes leave behind their pets as well.
This is not the way to handle this. You need to take
them to the right place. There is no excuse! There
are rescues, shelters and many places you can go to,
even the police department would see they get in
the right hands, but to do this would lead to a long,
horrible death for these kitties if they weren’t found.
Also, our part time residents in our area need to
be reminded at this time that when closing up your
summer homes you need to please be very careful to
make sure there is no wild life under the crawl
spaces there before hand, because a lot of people
close up the crawl space. This has become a problem with feral cats and other wild life, and again, a
long horrible death. If people would just take the
time to think before they act in these situations
these horrible incidents can be prevented.

BARRELLA DESERVES CHANCE TO FINISH TERM
Editor, The Ocean Star:
To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure how a son
writes about his father without sounding completely cliché or cheesy. By writing this letter, I risk doing
just that, because a lot of what I have to say about
my dad is, in fact, cliché and cheesy. But I can
promise you this much as you read this: it’s all 100percent honest and from the heart.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m the
youngest, and probably the quietest [comparatively
speaking] of the Barrella family. I’ve been somewhat
out of the loop as to a lot of the events happening
in town, mostly because I’ve been spending the past
few years at New York University studying drama.
Now, for those of you who don’t know, NYU is a
pretty expensive school, and drama isn’t necessarily
the most lucrative career choice, but it’s what I want
to do and NYU is where I wanted to go to do it.
One of the many people who understands this is the
guy who writes the checks: my father. When I was

innumerable amount of shows attended and checks

complete faith in everything I do, even when I

Most people don’t know how difficult it is to be
the mayor of a town. It’s a job that requires huge
amounts of dedication and is very time-consuming.
This situation has led to many sleepless nights for

that gets so much done. Since taking office, he has
gone to every graduation and rarely misses a town

attention to his mayoral position. He is a tax professor at Pace University’s school of business and he
commutes to New York City two to three times per
week. He has been married for nearly 36 years and
has raised three successful children.
My father is a committed man who I have never

back down from a fight when he believes something
is wrong. My father is a role model, a dedicated citizen, and the kind of man I’d like to be someday. He

PARKING PLAN NOT MAYOR BARRELLA’S WORK
Editor, The Ocean Star:
In the Sept. 24 edition, a letter was published
from Point Pleasant Beach Councilman Frank
Rizzo, providing his opinion as to the reasons the
town council has become dysfunctional. The councilman has every right to his opinion. However, the
letter Councilman Rizzo sent included a couple of
factual inaccuracies. First, the 2008-2009 proposed
parking plan did not call for residents or property
owners to pay to park in town. They were all to be
provided with parking permits. Further, the plan
was not created by Mayor Barrella.
We, the members of the citizens’ committee, did
so without direction from the mayor. In fact, the
only advice he and the two town council liaisons
[one Democrat and one Republican] gave us was to
try and develop a new approach that would raise
revenue, but in a way acceptable to local property
owners. We worked completely independently, and
presented our recommendations to the entire town
council in several public meetings, giving citizens
the opportunity to impact the decision. To quote
Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, “Everyone is
entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own
facts.”

TIME TO RECONSIDER REASONS FOR
SIGNINGRECALL PETITION
Editor, The Ocean Star:
Did you sign the petition last year thinking it was
against the proposed parking plan? Did you sign the
petition last year thinking it was for closing the local
bars earlier? Did you know you were signing a petition to recall Mayor Vincent Barrella, a man who
has not broken any laws or done anything wrong
since taking office on January 1, 2008? The only
thing you can accuse him of is making good on his
campaign promises of putting the Beach’s residents
and taxpayers first.
If you were duped into thinking that petition was
against a parking plan or for closing bars early,
please think again. The group of individuals who
circulated and signed that petition don’t have the
best interests of Point Pleasant Beach residents at
heart. Mayor Vincent Barrella does. He is the right
man in the right place at the right time.
As our town faces a very challenging financial
future, Mayor Barrella’s financial and legal background will help us navigate the choppy waters. He
knows and understands the Beach's finances and
the ramifications of decisions affecting our revenues
and expenses. He tells the truth, like it or not.
Mayor Barrella works hard for the residents and
taxpayers of Point Pleasant Beach and does it without ulterior motives.
Give Mayor Barrella the opportunity to finish his
term, the term he was duly elected to serve in
November 2007. Make your vote count this Nov. 2
and remember to vote twice. First, vote no in order
to not recall Mayor Vincent Barrella, and then vote
Column C for Vincent Barrella to remain Mayor of

Second-half surge pushes Boro past Jackson Liberty
By Greg Domorski
POINT PLEASANT —

Bolger made one thing clear to
her field hockey team this past
Saturday — the team could
either run against the Jackson
Liberty Lions or run extra
sprints the following practice.

responded with a 3-0 victory
over the Lions at Point Pleasant

Saturday, to stay alive in the B
Central Division race.
“[Coach Bolger] gave us the
right motivation,” laughed senior sweeper Molly Hoffmaster,
who stopped the Lions forwards
in their tracks. “We wouldn’t be
able to do it without her. She
pressured and helped us today.
She always knows what to say.”
Bolger did not want the team
to approach the game too lightly after defeating Jackson
Liberty on the Lions’ home field
in the teams’ previous meeting.
“I told them just because we
remained competitive early,
evenly attacking the opponent’s
side of the field. The Panthers
barely had the advantage in the
half, as the team had five shots
on goal compared to Jackson
Liberty’s four.
In the second half, the story
unfolded differently, as the
Panthers pressed the Lions, outshooting the Jackson Liberty
team 8-2, propelling the
Panthers to two more goals.
On defense, the Panthers
were led by Kate Delucca,
Catherine Hunt and Molly
Hoffmaster, who shut out the
Lions and stopped opportunities, letting their own offense go
to work.
With 22:57 left on the clock,
sophomore forward Cailyn Rafi
hit the ball across the net to senior forward Joanna Peluso, who
tapped the ball in the left side of
the goal to take a 2-0 lead.

poned, but was happy to see the
team battle to a comfortable victory.
“I think if you have momentum, outside weather can be a
deterrent,” said coach Burstein.
“But I think our girls are handling the adversity well with how
they are playing.”
Point Beach exhibited no
mental or physical lapse coming
into the game, displaying their
superior athletic skills from the
first whistle.
Two minutes in, Morgan
LaDuca strategically shot the
ball off the goalkeeper, causing
the ball to spin to the middle of

Erin Springsteen ran down

The Seraphs instantly tried to
respond when forward Dejah

almost had a goal on the breakaway, but Gulls goalkeeper Cora
Wallace made a diving save to
prevent the score.
It was clear the bottled-up
energy of the Lady Gulls was just
beginning to be released.
Anxious to answer the competitive call, LaDuca kept the
pressure on Mater Dei on a
breakaway.
Sprinting down the right sideline, she shot the ball off the left
post, which rebounded into the

Seraphs goalkeeper’s face. The
ball then gently rolled into the
net, which extended the Beach’s
lead 2-0 in the 13th minute.
The Seraphs defense struggled
with the Gulls’ offensive firepower throughout the game.
Mater Dei was led by Danielle
Hesler, who was able to make key
stops throughout the game. Yet,
the relentless pressured attack
crafted by the Gulls caused the
Seraphs to execute shots that
were being constantly pounded
at the goalkeeper, who was on
high alert to prevent a goal.
Point Beach’s Hailey Ray created the next opportunity by
kicking a lead pass to Nicole
Meyer. After gaining control,
Meyer kicked the ball in the left
side of the net to make the game
3-0 in the 24th minute.
Meyer returned the favor next,
by helping her teammates with
her smooth passing skills as she
set up Morgan Ludwig. Ludwig
one-timed the ball from inside to
the box to light 4-0 on the scoreboard just one minute after
Meyer’s goal.
Ray capped the scoring of the
game, scoring on breakaway,
kicking the ball past the goalkeeper and running the ball into
the net, upping the score to 5-0
in the 32nd minute.
After half, the Gulls were able
to move players into different
positions, in order for the team to
gain knowledge and experience
about the positions around them.
Maggie Loundy moved from
defense to forward, and late into
the second half, she broke free
within the box to almost score,
but the Mater Dei goalkeeper
lunged for the ball before she had
an opportunity.
Wallace was the only player
held at one position,but she was
happy staying in goal, as it further validated her worth
throughout the game with key
stops in the second half.
“I believe I am best in goal.
Offensive positions are not for
me,” laughed Wallace. “I was
probably meant to play football
in a different life because I play
best on defense and am physical,
but sometimes is nice to get out
of the goalie box.”
Mater Dei nearly prevented
the shutout when Hesler had a
free kick 20 yards out, but
Wallace barely tapped the ball
over the net to prevent the scoring opportunity and to continue
frustrating the Seraphs.
“I have had a couple fights
with the crossbar before where I
hit [the ball] and went down
hard,” said Wallace. “I just
thought I should go for it. I had
to time it but I jumped up and
got lucky enough to [block the
ball].”
As the time ticked away at the
end of the half, coach Burstein
was proud with how the team
played against the Seraphs.
“It was a nice effort,” said
Burstein. “We finished very well
in the first half.”
The Point Beach Gulls outshot the Seraphs 15-9, in the
game but the Gulls had better
opportunities, which put the
team on top.
Burstein is confident in his
team, but believes there is still
much work left to do.
“We have enjoyed a little bit of
success but we haven't done anything yet,” he said.
The Gulls play Matawan at
home today, Oct. 8, at 3:45 p.m.
The team’s key divisional games
come against Shore Regional
[Oct. 11] and St. Rose [Oct. 12].
The winner would put either
team in the driver’s seat to winning the division.
But Wallace believes the team
has to play every game like it is
their last to have a successful end
to the season.
“We have to go out to every
game like its St. Rose,” said
Wallace. “We don’t just want
conference this year, we want to
win a state championship.”
Boro falls to Manasquan in heartbreaker
By Greg Domorski
On Wednesday afternoon at
the Sea Girt Army Camp fields,
wild wind
SOCCER
rustled
the
Point Boro 0 across
pitch in a
Manasquan 1 b i z a r r e
C-CENTRAL DIVISION m a t c h
between
the Point Boro Panthers and
Manasquan Warriors. The
Panthers had 26 shots in the
game compared to Manasquan’s
seven, but bad luck haunted the
Panthers throughout the game
as they fell to the Warriors, 1-0,
in a heartbreaker.
The Panthers were on the
offensive attack the majority of
the contest, but the Manasquan
defense remained resilient, led
by Kate Badecker, Emily
Dayton and Shea Cowley.
The Panthers’ Carly Snyder
tried finding her teammates
inside the goal area, but the ball
was by kicked away by Squan’s
Shea Cowley on the cross.
Boro’s Stevie Ferrara kept the
Manasquan defense on their
toes when she had a near shot in
the 26th minute, but the ball
ricocheted off the crossbar, preventing the goal.
Clare Baxter and Kelsey
Haycook kept the pressure
intact by pounding the ball at
the net, but the Manasquan
defense still remained tough.
Manasquan could not find its
way to the net the first half, and
the team’s most favorable
opportunity was when Emily
Dayton booted the toward
Panthers goalkeeper Lauren
Hughes. Hughes easily blocked
the shot and prevented the
score.
The Panthers’ opportunities
remained endless, with the team
just missing the goal on every
opportunity.
Alana Keffer had a beautiful
cross that curved to Haycook
for a side header in the 33rd
minute, but the Manasquan
goalkeeper grabbed the ball in
the middle of the air to prevent
the score.
The Panthers’ Shannon
Smith was next in line, and had
nice strike toward the end of the
first half, when her shot hit the
goalkeeper and then the crossbar.
With the shots differential
being 14-3 at the end of the
first half, the Panthers were
bewildered about why they
could not light up the scoreboard.
When the second half started, the Panthers kept attacking
the Manasquan goal.
The Warriors had their golden opportunity on a long ball as
Melissa Pavia had a breakaway
down the left sideline.
In the 62nd minute, Pavia
crossed the ball to Julia Ford.
The ball deflected off her right
knee and bounced right into the
goal, to shock the Panthers
bench, giving Manasquan the
1-0 lead.
Later on in the second half,
both teams’ played physically.
Snyder and Haycook both
collapsed in the goalie box, and
no call was made by the offi-
cials. Boro remained firing at
the Manasquan goalkeeper, but
she did not falter the entire
game. Snyder shot the ball
down the center of the goal, but
the ball took a Warrior bounce
right into the goalkeeper’s arms.
As the clock ticked zero and
the Panthers shocked by the
loss after outplaying the
Warriors, Point Boro head
coach Mike Edolo was quiet
after the game, disappointed
with the end result. He
remained confused about why
the team just couldn’t get the
ball in the back of the net.
“We had great opportunities
in the first and second half —
we just couldn’t score,” said
Mike Edolo. “This seems like
this has happened a few times
this year where we outshoot
teams and just end up winning
or losing”
Even with the loss, he was
complimentary toward the
Warriors.
“I think their goalie played
very well,” he explained, but was
still disappointed none of his
team’s chances found their way
into the net. “We had [26]
chances. We are creating opportunities — they just are not
going in [the net].”
The Point Boro Panthers will
play at Wall High School today,
Oct. 8, at 3:45 p.m.

The Panthers will face off

Leading the pack of Panthers
against Manasquan was senior
forward Bryan Brodeur, who
had two goals in the game. With
this season being his final year,
he feels the pressure to lead his
team to a state championship.
When asked his secret to
finding out how he prepares for a
game, as he nearly had a hat trick
in the first half against
Manasquan, he claimed he performs a pre-game ritual for good
luck.
“I get pumped up for a game
by doing a routine and it works
every time,” he laughed. “I actually just start screaming before
the game.”

followed Brodeur’s passion,
beginning with his first goal of
the game. Mike Dolan kicked
the ball off the goalkeeper and
the ball went right to Brodeur’s
legs. He instantly kicked the ball
off the rebound in the 18th
minute to start the game with a
1-0 lead.
“When you place yourself in
the right position and when you
get an opportunity, you can’t get
nervous,” he explained “You just
have to finish it.”
Brodeur remained confident
throughout the rest of the game
and was able to score in the center of the goal area when Lou
Pazienza crossed the ball to him
in the 29th minute, extending
the lead to 2-0.
Brodeur believes the reason
the team played well together
was chemistry.
“Our chemistry is good,” he
explained. “We hang out before,
during and after school.”
Pazienza got his share scoring,
as well, down the right side of
the box. He controlled the ball
then one-timed it to the top
right corner of the net in the
35th minute, to make the score
3-0.
In the second half, the
Panthers kept pressuring the
Warriors. In the 44th minute
Tori Remondelli kicked a lead
pass Mike Dolan, who kicked
the ball into the net, capping the
scoring at 4-0.
Afterward, when most of
Point Boro’s starters were pulled
from the game, there remained
lots of activity around both nets.
Bill Kavanagh, a sophomore,
proved he will be able to take
over the goalkeeper position,
once the starter Ed Moran graduates after this year. Moran plans
to play for Siena College in New
York next year.
Oswaldo Giron played forward toward the end of the game
and had several opportunities,
but his strikes could not find
their way to the back of the net.
In his first attempt, he cut to the
center of the goal area and
kicked the ball, which curved off
to the left side of the goal. In his
final opportunity, he was on a
breakaway until a Manasquan
defender finally caught him.
As the clock struck zero, the
Panthers were proud of the
shutout.
During the game, the team
wore pink laces, in order to
honor Breast Cancer Awareness
month. A Pop Warner mother,
Michelle Mayfield, organized
the effort. All of the Panthers
coaches supported the cause, as
there was a wide range of pink
apparel displayed at the game.
“We discussed about doing
something for Breast Cancer
awareness this month,” said
Panthers head coach Pete
Casalino. “I told them to think
about the most important female
in their life and what they would
be going through something like
this and how they will feel. So
we are trying to honor [those
who are suffering].”
Coach Casalino believes the
team will be in a favorable position if they can come up with a
win against the Crimson
Knights on Oct. 8.
“If we win this game, we are in
pretty good shape to win the
division,” he explained. “Every
time we play Wall it is an intense
match up. Hopefully we can
come out with the same energy
and intensity [as we did today].”
When Brodeur was asked
about the possibility of losing to
Wall again after they fell to the
Knights 2-0 on Sept. 22, he
swiftly responded, “I’m not letting it happen.”

Haugen sisters bring family chemistry to Beach volleyball

Thursday, but losing to
Manchester Township on
Wednesday, Oct. 6.
The Gulls volleyball team,
which has a guaranteed spot in
the state and shore conference
tournament by hitting the .500
record mark, is now looking to
improve its seed and overall play.
The Lady Gulls contain a
powerful roster with many creditable contributors on the team,
but two key players that took the
spotlight this week were sisters
Mary Grace and Jane Haugen.
Mary Grace is a junior and
plays opposite/outside hitter,
and Jane is a sophomore and
plays libero. The two earned a
starting spot on the varsity volleyball team and have become
valuable assets. They worked
hard in the off-season while
playing at Goodsports USA,
located in Wall Township,where

they developed skills and chemistry coming into the season.
Jane is excited for this season
because she believes the team
can have a successful year.
“We worked together last
year but this year [the team] is
more tight knit,” explained Jane.
“We are pulling the ball more
and getting passes to the center.
We learned how to communicate better in this game.”
The Beach proved their dominance this past Thursday,
destroying the Brick Memorial
Green Dragons in two sets with
the final scores being 25-15 and
25-12.
In the game, Sarah Beresik,
the team’s senior who plays outside hitter, had three kills and
three aces.
Samantha Crescitelli, a junior
middle hitter, had four kills, one
block, two digs and five aces.
Mackenzie Donald, a junior
middle hitter, had seven kills
and one ace. Kirby Given, a junior outside hitter, had three kills.
Jane Haugen had one kill and
eight digs, while Mary Grace

aces. Lauren Sharkey, a junior

After the game, Mary Grace
said, “It was really all teamwork.
We have improved so much and
we know how to talk to each
other. [Games like this] teach us
how to hit more and look for the

But on Wednesday afternoon,
the Point Pleasant Gulls lost to
Manchester in three sets.

THE OCEAN STAR, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2010
High School Football 2010
Chilly second-half offense leads to Panthers’ loss to Wall Knights
the Crimson Knights on top 7-0
to start the game.
When the Panthers failed to
compile their second offensive
drive, resulting in a punt, the
Crimson Knights kept up the
heat on offense.
On a trick play, the Wall team
lined up in the wildcat formation, and Avon passed the ball to
receiver Harry Paytas for a 50yard touchdown.
Down 14-0, the Panthers
offense finally gelled, and capitalized on the team’s raw talent
to put some much-needed
points on the scoreboard. Krohn
floated the ball to Jeff Lokerson
down the left side of the field for
a touchdown with 5:57 left to
play in the first quarter, cutting
Wall’s lead to 14-7.
On the Panthers’ next possession — which resulted from
defensive back Dan Trainor
intercepting a pass — sophomore kicker Brett Blank kicked a
29-yard field goal to cut the lead
to 14-10, closing the deficit.
Blank was perfect on the day —
4 for 4 on extra points and field
goals.
The Panthers’ momentum
appeared to build, but it would
be short-lived. The Crimson
Knights made another trip to the
end zone, when Wall's dynamic
running back, Raul Pola, got into
the scoring on the Wall team’s
next possession.
Pola ran a 7-yard touchdown
up the left side of the field with
7:54 left in the half, to put the
Knights up 21-10.

night.

C CENTRAL DIVISION [2-2, 2-1]
demolished the Panthers, 49-24, at
Wall High School.
With a losing record to start
the season, a bye week could not
come at a better time to give the
Point Boro squad a much-needed breather, and time to hammer
out mistakes and work on execution.
“It does not get any worse
than this,” Panthers head coach
Calvin Thompson said recently.
“We have no choice but to get
better.”
After a strong first defensive
series resulted in a Wall punt in
Saturday’s game, the Panthers
initially struggled on offense.
Junior quarterback Chuckie
Krohn threw an interception to
Wall’s Kyle Cozens on the Point
Boro team’s first possession.
This set up the first score of
the game for Knights running
back Will Avon, who — in one
play — ran for the first touchdown of the night, shifting his
way between the tackles to put
STEVE WEXLER, The Ocean Star
Sophomore wide receiver Steve McGarry climbed on top of
Wall defensive back Jim Guliano for a stunning catch in
Saturday night’s game, but the Panthers fell to the Crimson
Knights 49-24.
Thus began a see-saw scoring
battle between the Panthers and
the Crimson Knights, starting
the Boro squad’s adrenaline
pumping.
With 4:18 left in the first half,
Panther junior running back Jim
DiOrio streaked down the right
side on a hand-off down for at 5yard touchdown, to cut the
Crimson Knights’ lead to 21-17,
capping off a 66-yard drive.
However, the Boro defense
could not contain Wall, resulting
in another touchdown to put up
the Knights up 28-17 at the half.
On and off the field, the general consensus was that there was
plenty of athletic talent and
competitive play left in both
teams, and the game was still up
for grabs.
The Panthers opened the second half with a bang, when
Mickey Kearns recovered a fumble down the sideline for 24
yards to score. The touchdown
brought the the Panthers within
four points of Wall, 28-24, and
seemed to give the Boro team
new life.
But the Panthers offense went
cold in the second half, as the
Crimson Knights scored 21
straight, to cap the score at 4924.
Overall, the Panthers struggled with the game in the air, as
quarterback Chuckie Krohn
grappled with a completion percentage of only 36 percent —
only one of the Panthers’ final
seven attempts through the air
connected with a receiver.
The Knights dropped back
deep in coverage, making it difficult for receivers to find open
space.
Wall junior quarterback Steve
Cluley remained hot all night, as
he tore apart the Panthers secondary, ending the game 8 for
11, having thrown for 175 yards
and three touchdowns. The
majority of Cluley’s passes were
caught by senior wide receiver
Kyle Janeczek, who had two
touchdowns and 153 yards
receiving.
“The kid was Tom Brady out
there,” said Panthers head coach
Calvin Thompson, of Cluley.
“There is nothing I can say to
explain it. We know what we are
coaching this team to do.”
Tight end Ryan Malleck
believes his team should simply
look in the mirror and take own-
ership of the loss.
“We beat ourselves,” he said.
“We need to work on tackling
and executing all around. We
have to win from here on out.
We have no choice, but I think
we can do it.”
The Panthers will receive help
from the return of former quarterback John Dunbar, who
Krohn replaced as the starter.
Dunbar, who had been out
recovering from a concussion,
will give the Panthers more
options on offense when he joins
the team as a receiver upon his
return.
“We need to have more go-to
guys,” explained Thompson.
“Dunbar will give us another
play-maker when he returns.”
Citing dissatisfaction with the
number of defense breakdowns
and missed offensive assignments, Thompson will look to
rebuild this team into a contender one player at a time.
“We have to express the
importance of doing your job,”
coach Thompson said after
Saturday’s game. “All we can do
is coach.”
The Panthers will look to correct their previous mistakes in
the upcoming bye week, and in
two games against lesser division
rivals Monsignor Donovan and
Lakewood, on Oct. 15 and 23,
respectively.
If the Panthers can look ahead
and put their losses behind
them, the team has the potential
to make a run back into contention for the division title.

Beach team is finally seeing
winning become a habit.
Even though they have
already won more games this
season than in all of the last one,
the Gulls aren’t content to rest
on their newfound laurels, as the
team aims for a victory over
Keyport next week. The Gulls
are slated to travel to Keyport
tomorrow for a 2 p.m. game.
“We can’t be satisfied,”
explained Fioretti. “We knew
we had to get this win and be 21. This week, we have to keep
mentally and physically preparing, because we know Keyport is
going to be a big game.”
With the team starting to buy
into its own ability to succeed,
Coach Sasse believes the Gulls
can do well if the players continue to work together. The proof,
according to the coach, is in the
proverbial pudding — Friday’s
win was the team’s first at home
since the fall of 2009.
“We have to keep on getting
better,” the coach said after
Friday’s game. “If we can do
that, we can do very well [this
season]. We want to make it to
the playoffs.”
The Gulls will have plenty of
help against Keyport, with the
return of sophomore running
back/defensive back Andre
Cochran.
Cochran was kept out of the
game against Keansburg due to
a concussion, but is expected to
play tomorrow in Keyport.

Point Beach senior Reischel choosing between five colleges
— FROM PAGE 33 —
have a significant impact as a
freshman at a mid-major
[team].”
As he moves into his senior
year, Catania noted that
Reischel has been presented
with more than 40 offers to play
at the college level.
Reischel said this week he has
narrowed down that pool to his
top five choices, a varied set of
impressive universities.
Reischel’s top schools include
Seton Hall University, in South
Orange, Philadelphia’s Temple
University, Penn State, Rice
University in Houston, and
Georgetown.
Reischel has hit the road
recently, and is enjoying the
recruiting process, searching for
the school that will be the best
fit.
On his first stop, at Rice on
Sept. 23, Reischel was exposed
to what life will be like as a college athlete. He believes the
school would have a lot to contribute to his development as a
player and as a person.
“I chose Rice in my final five
because they have great academics, and I think they are going to
be a great team,” Reischel said.
“I was surprised with how nice
the campus was. I thought Rice
would be in a separate area, but
it is right near the city of
Houston. It is only five to 10
minutes away on the train.”
“There are great alumni and
academics, and it is really hot
down there,” Reischel said. “I
played with the guys in the gym,
went to breakfast and went
inside the dorms.”
Reischel, who plans on
majoring in international business, was also able to sit in on a
criminal justice class on his visit
to Rice.
Reischel is slated to visit
Seton Hall on Thursday, Oct.
15, and a significant selling
point for the Pirates is Reischel’s
relationship with the coaching
staff, and the opportunity to
help build a program.
Reischel said he plans on
attending the Pirates’ first practice on the 15th, and said he
plans on spending three days at
the school.
“I like Seton Hall’s change in
the coaching staff. They want to
rebuild Seton Hall,” Reischel
said this week. “ [I like] how the
coach [Kevin Willard] has experience from Louisville and the
Boston Celtics.”
Next up, Reischel is due to
visit Georgetown on Oct. 23.
Reischel recognizes that the
school is top-notch.
“Georgetown is an overall
great school, with great academics,” Reischel said. “They have a
history of great players. They
have a great coaching staff [with
John Thompson III].”
Reischel said this week he is
excited about the opportunities
at Penn State, and plans on visiting the university on Oct. 30.
“Penn State is a great academic school, and I have a
chance to play as a freshman,”
said Reischel.
Reischel said he is looking to
visit Temple in between
Georgetown and Penn State,
but has not scheduled an official
visit.
As for Temple, Reischel said
the school made the cut on his
short list, because the school is
close and the basketball program has been successful on the
court the past couple seasons.
“Temple is always, like, top 30
in the country, and it is close to
home,” Reischel said. “ I like the
head coach [Fran Dunphy] a
lot.”
When asked what factors will
play a prominent role in his final
decision, Reischel said he would
mostly focus on the coaching
staff, playing opportunities and
the campus atmosphere.
“The campus is really important to me, because I really want
to experience college,” he said. “I
have always wanted to play college basketball. In Germany,
they really don’t have these
opportunities. I want to make
the most out of it.”

Geoffrey, a senior, finished

The Lady Panthers were
more successful as Carly Martz,
a sophomore, finished 16th

Jersey, but I came from
Germany, so it really does not
matter.”
Reischel said he does not feel
pressured to make a decision,
and believes that time will not
come until he is finished with all
of his official visits.
“I really don’t have a
timetable,” he said this week.
“Once I am finished with all my
official visits, I will sit down and
make a decision.”
Once he makes a non-binding commitment to a particular
school, Reischel said he will end
his recruiting process and not
open it back up for any school.
Reischel will then able to ink
his commitment in one of the
two NCAA-approved signing
periods. Reischel can sign a
binding national letter of intent
during the early signing period,
from Nov. 10 to 17. If he does
not sign then, Reischel can sign
during the regular period, from
April 13 to May 18, 2011.
Catania believes that college
coaches have traveled all the way
to Point Beach to watch
Reischel play, due to the senior’s

become contagious throughout
the team.”
With Reischel looking to be a
better player every day, Catania
believes he has taught his fellow
athletes the commitment it
takes to excel on and off the
court.
“His biggest impact is not
only playing basketball, but off
the [court], in terms of showing
kids how hard you have to work,
to get to that level,” said
Catania.
Reischel believes his commitment and versatility are what
separate him from others on the
court.
“Right now, I say the versatility is the strength of my game,”
he explained. “I can play many
different positions, and I am
working out everyday. I have
been working on my ball handling,
conditioning
and
strength.”
With this being Reischel’s
final season at Point Pleasant
Beach High School, Reischel
has big plan to propel his team
to a successful season.
“My last year, I want to go all
out and win as many games as
possible,” Reischel said confidently. “I want to practice as
hard as I can, because high
school is eventually going to be
over. I want to leave it all out on
the court.”

but could not capitalize,
unluckily missing the goal on
each attempt. Toward the end
of the second half, she had her
best opportunity when her shot
went through the goalkeeper’s
legs — but the ball rolled just
outside the box, prompting the
Lions to breathe a sigh of
relief.
Even though she did not
record a goal, Rafi pressed the
Lions goalkeeper, who had to
make 11 saves in the game.
Berger had the Lady
Panthers’ final score, on an
unassisted rebound, to extend
the lead to 3-0 with 20:56 left.
“Andrea [Berger] had some
good goals,” remarked Bolger.
“She was really aggressive.”
After coming off a disappointing
loss
to
the
Manasquan Warriors, the
Point Boro players knew they
had to make a statement.
“We played so well in the
final 7 minutes [against
Manasquan], and we need to
prove ourselves today,” Peluso
declared. “When we started
this season, we thought it was
going to be a rebuilding year,
but [later on], we realized we
can win [this season].”

was proud of her team’s play,
despite having limited prep
time for the Jackson Liberty
matchup.
“We haven’t practiced out on
our field since Monday,” said
Bolger.
According to Bolger, the
team practiced in the high
school gymnasium during the
deluge, to prevent any lapse
going into the Jackson Liberty
game.
“I am real proud of how they
came out and played today,”
Bolger said Saturday.
The Panthers’ scheduled
game against Freehold Boro

The Panthers were scheduled to play the undefeated

Saturday
over
the
Manchester Hawks Midgets.
The game was a hard-hitting
contest on both sides of the ball
all night.
The Elks’ running game, led
by Joe Wegrzyniak, Gavin
Hynes, Antonio Garcia and Jake
Fioretti, dominated.
Garcia was tough up the middle yards and Hynes consistently moved the sticks. Wegrzyniak
scored twice. The offensive line
dominated the Hawks’ aggressive defense. The score was 14-0
at the half.
The Elks’ squib kicked the
opening kickoff of the second
half and recovered the ball near
midfield. A time-consuming
drive was capped by Fioretti’s
20-yard strike to Jax Wigert to
end the Elk’s scoring at 20-0.
Manchester was able to
muster a score late in the game
to make the final score 20-6.
The Elks Midgets will open
the conference payoffs at home

MITEY-MITE PURPLE
On Saturday afternoon, the
Golden Elks Mitey-Mite
Purple kicked off the seventh
week of the Pop Warner season
hosting the Holmdel Hornets,
in a game where no score could
be recorded due to the instructional level of play.
For the first two quarters,
both teams were scoreless in
what turned into a defensive
battle.
It was not until the second
half when Christian Aurin
broke a run to the outside for a
20-yard touchdown run, putting
the Elks on top. Tight end
Michael Mayfields scored the
extra point after.
In what coach Joesph
Mayfield calls the “most exciting
game” he ever coached, the
players had a great time in a nail
bitter. They picked up the extra
point on a play that the players
designed in the beginning of
the season.
Given as a “homework
assignment,” the players had to
write up a play. Coach Mayfield
tested his team to see how well
it understood the offense.

quarterback, jumping in front of
a long pass for an interception
PEE WEE
The weather was a bit unpredictable on Sunday, Sept. 26, as
the Golden Elks Pee Wee team
took the field in Toms River to
square off against the Toms
River Raiders. The performance
by the Elks Pee Wee team was
anything but unpredictable —
its offensive and defensive lines
worked in unison to produce
another tally mark in the win
column with a final score of 19-
6.
Following the initial kick-off,
the Elks began their first offensive drive on the 50-yard line.
The offense moved 50 yards in
nine plays, accumulating three
first downs finally culminating
with a 5-yard touchdown run by
Devin Connelly. The extra
point attempt was no good to
start the game off with a 6-0
score.
The Elks started the second
half with an onside kick which
they were able to recover on the
Raiders’ 49-yard line. This was
the beginning of an impressive
drive that moved the ball 35
yards.
The drive ended with
Connelly airing the ball out 14
yards to the corner to Mike
Waddleton in the end zone for
a touchdown. The extra point
attempt was no good. The
scoreboard lit up 12-0 in favor
of the Elks.
After a turnover on downs by
the Raiders, the crowd came
alive in the stands when
Connelly, behind the blocking
of the offensive line, broke out
for a 59-yard run with no
defender near him to score in
the endzone. The extra point
attempt was again no good, and
the score now stood at 19 -0.
The Raiders had the ball for
the last possession of the game
and pushed hard to get close to
the endzone. Late in the fourth
quarter, they were successful as
the Elks’ defense gave up a
touchdown. Toms River was
not able to run the ball in for
the extra point.
The final score stood in favor
of the Golden Elks, 19-6.
FISHING TIPS
This sounds like a repeating
column, but once again, more
wind and bad weather has been
on tap for our coast.
Another storm, this one a
nor’easter, came in early Sunday
morning and blew into Tuesday.
There was, however, a short
weather window on Saturday
afternoon, as the hard northwest
winds from Thursday, Friday and
Saturday othat prevented boaters
from getting out finally subsided.
But, by then, most anglers were
already engaged in other activities, or had other things on their
mind.
I was lucky enough to get my
work done in the morning, and
was ready to go banking on the
forecasted calm seas in the afternoon. So, I headed out with my
son, Tommy, and my friend, Dan
Keating, and we made a quick run
in calm seas out to the west side
of the Mud Hole, in hopes of jigging up some bluefin tuna.
We did find some good sand
eel bait readings, but only had big
gator blues take our jigs.
Nonetheless, it was a lot of fun
having our rods bend after being
off the water for so long.
It was either rain, wind or
swells — but mostly wind — that
was the pattern for the majority
of September, making it one of
the worst Septembers for getting
out in the boat in a long time.
The few weather windows that
did exist did have excellent
reports of bluefin, bluefish and
false albacore spread over a wide
area. In fact, the run of false albacore in September was one of the
best runs in several years.
Unfortunately, there weren’t
many opportunities to get out
and target them.
Greg over at Brielle Bait and
Tackle reported: “It was another
tough week with the weather, but
we still managed to have a little
action. The Manasquan River is a
good place for porgies, spots, tog,
blowfish and even stripers.
“Chris Smith, of Sea Girt,
fished the river with clams and
caught three, 25-inch stripers
right by the Route 35 bridge.
“The local kids have been fishing by Union Landing, off the
By
Jim Freda
dock, and catching spots and porgies on sandworms. Small boats
drifting in front of the Point
Pleasant Canal are catching small
weakfish, tog, sea bass and porgies, mostly on clams and worms.
“Mark Mantlick, from Brielle,
fished by the old hospital and
caught a couple nice tog on green
crabs.
“In the surf, clams were working well this week, as striped bass
from 20 to 30 inches long are
being caught from Manasquan,
north to Spring Lake. I just got in
some awesome surf plugs, a new
batch of R.P. Customs from
Asbury Park, 2- and 3-ounce
swimmers in white, yellow and
chartreuse — they’re awesome.
“As far as the party boats,
Wednesday was the only day the
boats got out during the week,
but the ling fishing was hot.
Paramount customers fishing the
Mud Hole did very good, with
big ling. High hook was in the
30s.
“This past weekend, and this
upcoming weekend, are when
many freshwater anglers from our
area head up to the Salmon River
in Pulaski, N.Y., to cash in on the
world-class king salmon and
coho salmon fishery.
“Every fall, at this time, these
fish run the Salmon River coming
out of Lake Ontario by the thousands. Unfortunately, the heavy
rains from last week have put the
town in a state of emergency, as
the second-worst flooding ever
seen in the area has taken place,
as water from the Salmon River
has reached dangerous levels.
Chris McGrath, of CNY
Central, reported: “This is supposed to be a very big weekend
for fishing in Pulaski. In fact,
people from as far away as Texas
are in Oswego County to cast
their lines, but fishing is off limits
because of the high water levels.
“It’s impacting businesses big
time, as they rely on this time of
year to make money.
“‘We’re in one of the biggest
weekends of the season, and a lot
of these shops aren’t gonna make
any money this year,’ said Tony
Gulisano, of the Yankee Fly and
Tackle Shop. ‘We've already been
feeling the effects of the economy
from the get-go, but now, we’re
really going to be feeling the
effects of this.’
“The village is also reporting
that part of a retaining wall on
the banks of the Salmon River
has collapsed, and village officials
are concerned the rest of the wall
could collapse in the river.
“Hopefully, water levels will
subside enough during this week
to make this Columbus Day
weekend fishable. If they do,
good fishing should result, as
increase water flows bring in
major runs of salmon and steelhead.”
The New Jersey Division of
Fish and Wildlife fall trout stocking began this past Tuesday, Oct.
5 and continues through Oct. 13.
Over this period, approximately
21,000 trout, averaging 14 to 16
inches, and weighing 1.5 to 2
pounds, plus 1,000 exceptionally
large broodstock trout, measuring
17 to 24 inches, and weighing 3
to 8 pounds, will be distributed in
16 streams and 16 lakes and
ponds statewide.
Monmouth and Ocean county
waters were scheduled to be
stocked this Tuesday with the following numbers of trout:
Manasquan
River,
640;
Metedeconk River, North
Branch, 270; Metedeconk River,
South Branch, 240; and Toms
River, including TCA, 350.
Tip of the week: If you are
heading up to the Salmon River,
never try to wade across the river
when the water levels are up. The
swift currents can sweep you right
off of your feet.
