EnCap attorney, former state senator arrested by feds

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

NEWARK (Sept. 28, 2010) — Eric Wisler, an attorney who represented the failed Meadowlands developer EnCap Golf Holdings, LLC in its interactions with local governing bodies, was indicted on federal corruption charges Monday Sept. 27.

Former state Sen. Wayne Bryant was also accused in the alleged scheme to trade money for legislative influence that would ease the way for development projects undertaken by Wisler’s clients.

This man plays games at work … and doesn’t get in trouble

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

LYNDHURST (Sept. 27, 2010) — In a small office in a large building off Chubb Avenue in Lyndhurst, Edward Di Geronimo shoots aliens and walks on ceilings. For this 29-year-old Fair Lawn resident, defying gravity and using powerful weapons as a means of defense in the solar system is all in a day’s work.

And he’s one of the few workers in the labor force who can play games at his computer and get away with it.

LPD trains for worst-case scenarios

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

LYNDHURST (Sept. 23, 2010) — Officers with the Lyndhurst Police Department fired bullet after bullet into a dirt hillside just off the Belleville Turnpike Monday, Sept. 20. The first shots came from 40-caliber side arms, the second set from shotguns.

The target practice took place at a simply constructed range somewhere on the reed-strewn border between North Arlington and Kearny, as part of the department’s twice-annual firearms qualification and training day.

Holy Cross Mausoleum to add 6,100 more spaces

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

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

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

EDITORIAL: Will there be a candidates forum in North Arlington?

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

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

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

LYNDHURST (Sept. 17, 2010) — Robert Ceberio, the executive director of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, will retire from public service Dec. 31. The decision was announced at the commission’s Wednesday, Sept. 15 meeting in Lyndhurst.

Christie, Schaer disagree about status of EMT funding

By Chris Neidenberg / Reporter

(Sept. 16, 2010) — In countering recent statements made to The Leader by Assemblyman Gary Schaer (D-36), a spokesman for Republican Gov. Chris Christie said there are no immediate plans to restore more money to the EMT Training Fund.

In a phone interview, Deputy Press Secretary Kevin Roberts cited actions Christie’s Democratic predecessor, Jon S. Corzine, already took in addressing the issue late last year. Roberts said Christie merely inherited Corzine’s moving about $4 million to the state budget’s General Fund, for purposes of deficit reduction, leaving only about $400,000 in the line item.

Death of the funeral?

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

(Sept. 16, 2010) — Has the economy affected the funeral home business?

Angelo Mania, funeral director of Collins-Calhoun in Rutherford, laughed at the question for a moment before proceeding.

“There’s an old joke,” he said, “that funeral homes are recession proof, which isn’t the case.”

THE ROME TOME, Dispatch #5: Some final thoughts

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

ROME, Italy (Sept. 14, 2010) -- Rome is one of those places that is difficult to blog from. Why? Because who wants to write when there is so much to see? Alas, I skipped a few days in my daily dispatches, but have put together this hopefully helpful and interesting array of final thoughts on my stay in the capital of the world.

THE ROME TOME, Dispatch #4: Culture and more culture

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

ROME, Italy (Sept. 9, 2010) -- Hello from the city of gelato. Rome continues to be an invigorating place, both personally and professionally. The sights never fail to stun. The emotions of the architecture and the vibrancy of the atmosphere make the Eternal City earn its nickname.

Today's seminar dealt with several topical issues facing the church, including Catholic identity, Pope Benedict XVI's upcoming visit to the United Kingdom, embryonic stem-cell research and the church in Africa.

THE ROME TOME, Dispatch #3: The underground crypts and a papal blessing

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

ROME, Italy (Sept. 8, 2010) -- Hello from the Eternal City. It's now approaching midnight, so in deference to my closing eyelids, I'll make this dispatch a little more succinct (but just a little, because there is so much to write).

On Wednesdays during most weeks of the year, Catholics are able to attend an audience with Pope Benedict XVI. The frenzy to attain tickets (which are free), to pass through security, to secure a seat and to sneak a decent view of the pontiff could be laughable if it weren't for the fact that many of these pilgrims have waited their entire life to just steal a glimpse of the successor of St. Peter.

THE ROME TOME, Dispatch #2: Michelangelo and the business of rosaries

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

ROME, Italy (Sept. 7, 2010) -- Hello faithful readers. John Soltes here in Rome, dispatching from "The Church Up Close" seminar sponsored by the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross. The first day of the seminar (yesterday, Sept. 6) was focused on introductions among the participants, introductions to the Roman Catholic Church itself and introductions to what we have in store for the coming days. It was a chock-full day of lectures, interesting question-and-answer sessions and plenty of good times over good food.

Today's activities were inspiring and engaging, focusing mostly on the history of the Vatican and also one of its more controversial departments, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

THE ROME TOME, Dispatch #1: Gods and gorgonzola

By John Soltes / Editor in Chief

ROME, Italy (Sept. 6, 2010) -- Hello readers of The Leader. This is John Soltes, editor in chief of the newspaper. While you are all enjoying Labor Day in the United States, I'm an ocean (and a sea) away in Rome, Italy, attending the second-ever "The Church Up Close" seminar hosted by the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross. The goal of the week-long series of lectures, tours and encounters with Catholic clergy is for English-speaking journalists to gain a better knowledge and understanding of the inner-workings of the Roman Catholic Church and its faithful.

Carlstadt merchant says he was scammed in shady deal

By Chris Neidenberg / Reporter

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

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