Breaking NewsOpen space in new plan for EnCap

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

LYNDHURST (Dec. 16, 2010) — Housing has been removed from the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s plan for land formerly controlled by EnCap Golf Holdings LLC. Numerous other uses, including a solar farm and commerce center, have been penciled in.

When EnCap failed to deliver on its controversial plans for the area, it left behind a legal mess and contaminated, fallow property. But, it also cleared the way for a fresh look on how to use the 1,400 acres that stretch through four municipalities from Rutherford to Kearny.

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

(Dec. 10, 2010) — The information below is compiled from local police blotters, as that information is made available, and is not intended to give a full description of every criminal incident in the local area.


Assault

NORTH ARLINGTON — A police officer on patrol in the early morning hours of Nov. 25 observed a man on the ground in front of a Ridge Road address. The man was attempting to stand up and was bleeding from his face. The injured man told the police officer that he had been approached by another man who started an argument and then punched him in the face. The victim refused medical treatment. The suspect is a white male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 170 pounds, with a thick beard.

Top StoriesNo Passport Required with Andrew Segedin: Turkey

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

MOONACHIE (Dec. 10, 2010) — This week, in our effort to learn about local Turkish influence, we find ourselves in a place we’d least expect: a pizzeria in Moonachie, owned by a North Arlington resident.

As strange as it seems, it’s all the more so to owner Hazar Karacay, who, prior to opening Amalfi Pizzeria in Carlstadt six years ago, never had any interest in owning a restaurant. Over the past few weeks, Karacay has moved to a larger space on Moonachie Avenue and hopes to integrate more of his personal background and culture while maintaining his old customers and attracting new ones.

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

PISCATAWAY (Dec. 10, 2010) — In a game that many contend should never have been played, fourth-slotted St. Mary High School of Rutherford was shutout, 40-0, by third-seeded St. Joseph High School of Hammonton in the state’s first ever Groups 1 and 2 combined championship clash on Friday night, Dec. 3, at Rutgers Stadium in Piscataway.
