Crime rate is down in township BY VINCENT A. DE MURO JR. Staff Writer
urglaries, aggravated assaults and rapes increased in South Brunswick last year, while other categories of violent and nonviolent crime decreased, according to recently released state crime figures. According to the 1995 Uniform Crime Report compiled by the Uniform Crime Division of the New Jersey State police, South Brunswick's 1995 crime index was 633, down from 649 the previous year. The crime index includes four categories of violent crime: murder, rape, robber and aggravated assault; and three of nonviolent crime: burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft. Statistics also are included for arson, domestic violence and bias crime. South Brunswick's total crime rate per 1,000 residents decreased from 25.2 to 20.5. With an estimated 1994 population of 30,932, the 41-square-mile township had a small increase in the violent crime rate per 1,000 residents, from 0.8 to 1.0 in 1995. The nonviolent crime rate per 1,000 dropped from 24.3 to 19.5. South Brunswick Police Department public information officer Lt. Ron Schmalz said the slight increase in violent crime should not overshadow the significant reductions in nonviolent crime and bias crimes. Violent crimes increased from 21 to 31, with the majority of that increase coming from aggravated assaults, which rose from 17 in 1994 to 25 last year. "Violent crime, from a police perspective, is a different type of crime to target," Schmalz said. The categories of murder, rape and aggravated assault are generally committed by suspects known to the victim, he said. Schmalz said there is no real way that police can provide proactive measures to enforce the law in violent crime categories. Aggravated assault occurs most often in familiar or domestic situations, Schmalz said. Last year's Continued on page 10

More water woes reported BY VINCENT A. DE MURO JR. Staff Writer
looding is again a concern of the township, but this time off Route L Residents of the Monmouth Mobile Home Park on Route 1 south, just before the New Street intersection, have also been experiencing improper drainage and run-off from rain waters. Residents of Beekman Manor in Kendall Park experienced numerous problems earlier this summer. Woodlot Park, which borders the mobile home park, is also a concern, as residents believe it is runoff from the park that is flooding their properties. John Brown, a Carol Road resident, asked township officials at Monday's Township Committee meeting what they intend to do about the improper drainage affecting the mobile park. "There is not a big enough culvert there along Route 1 to catch all the water," Brown said. "People's yards are

Jamesburg mayor $ 2 million richer JAMESBURG — No one ever thinks it could happen to them, until it does. Mayor Joseph Dipicrro, 55, certainly wasn't expecting to win the lottery when he slopped into Jamesburg Deli on Gatzmer Avenue last Thursday morning for a buttered roll. But last Friday morning, he found out thai he was the sole winner of $2 million in the New Jersey Lottery. "It's a little bit more than what I make as mayor," Dipicrro said with a laugh. He will be paid $100,000 a year over the next 20 years — actually $70,000 annually after Uncle Sam takes his share. Dipicrro said he keeps a lottery card on the sun visor of his car, but he hadn't played in two months. "I play sporadically," he said. "I had an extra $5 that day, so I figured I'd get a ticket." The winning numbers — 1,4, 8, 14, 20, and 23 — arc the birth dates of his parents, brother, two sisters and himself. Dipicrro said he always plays the same six numbers. "It was a good Wake~up call," he said of hearing the numbers announced over the radio. "I was very much surprised and excited, and pretty much not believing it until I confirmed it with lottery headquarters." But the mayor, who plans on treating himself to a new set of golf clubs with his windfall, said he doesn't expect the money to change him, and he certainly doesn't plan on retiring from his position with Gandy Realty in Jamesburg or stepping down from his term as mayor. "I really like what I'm doing," he said. "If I didn't like what I was doing, maybe I'd quit, but I'm not ready to retire." As far as being mayor goes, he said, "I started it, and I intend to follow it through to the end of my term."
And although he said his wife Hiltrud may cut back her hours as a teller at Ocean Federal Bank, she's not about to retire either. Dipicrro said he's considering using some of the money to help the financially troubled borough, although he's not sure what he can do. "Even if I donated it all, it wouldn't have much of an impact. Maybe I can buy some trash cans and put them around town," he said. Winning the lottery has brought some instant celebrity to the borough and to the mayor, who was interviewed by CBS radio on Sunday and by ABC Eyewitness News on Monday. "I hope it results in positive publicity for Jamesburg," he said. "I told (the reporters), if anyone really wants to win the lottery, they should leave their towns and move to Jamesburg." Dipierro is the fifth person from the borough in the past 40 years to win the milliondollar jackpot, he said. "A lot of people have called to wish me well, and they said, 'It couldn't happen to a nicer person,' " the mayor said. "I told them, 'Sure it could. If it happened to you it would have been nicer.' " Dipierro also plans to use the money to pay some of his mortgage and help out his three daughters if they need it. He also may fulfill a lifelong fantasy of playing baseball with the New York Mets by attending "Fantasy Dream Week" in Port Saint Lucie, Fla. Jay Patel, manager of Jamesburg Deli, said that the sale of lottery tickets has increased about 20 percent since Dipierro wpn the lottery. — Gina Bothner
SOUTH BRUNSWICK — Davidson Mill Road resident Angelo Franchette has been lobbying the state for the acquisition and development of open space land in Middlesex County for the past three years. A lifelong resident of the township, Franchette said he would like to see more done in the way of preserving open space. "Just like you need a truck route like 522, you've got to make adjustments for open space," Franchette said. "You've got to have a balance between development and open space." Recently, the County Board of Chosen Freeholders approved a resolution that established the implementation of an open space and farm land preservation trust fund. Franchetle, witli the help of the township Department of Recreation and Community Affairs, has submitted a proposal to the county to link South Brunswick with its neighboring municipalities. "My goal is for South Brunswick to lead the way in developing open space so that other municipalities may follow," Franchette said. Franchette is working with the Middlesex County Open Space and Recreation Public Advisory Committee to develop an open space program with an estimated 7,000 acres. In addition to the county land, South Brunswick has a vast area of open space that can be dedicated to a county-wide open space project. "I would like to see these proposals for South Brunswick's (potential) 3,000 acres added to the county plan," Franchette said. The areas proposed for this open space project in South Brunswick are Pigeon S*wamp Park, Davidson Mill Park and areas of Friendship Road, Finnegans Lane tinct Ridge Road. Pigeon Swamp Park is owned by the state and is undeveloped "We've been waiting 300 years to do something with this property," Franchette said. "I think it's time has come." "We've got about 15 horse farms in South Brunswick, but not many riding trails," Franchette "said, proposing the 274acre property be considered for equestrian trails. The 241 acres at Davidson Mill Park has been well utilized by township residents, and recently became the site of a countyapproved boat-launching ramp. A major aspect of the open space proposal is the creation of a grcenway that would link all the parks surrounded by the New Jersey Turnpike, Route 1 and Route 130. "Deans Pond would be a good link, making South Brunswick a center point," Franchette said. Farmland and open space along Ridge Road could link South Brunswick from the Delaware/Raritan Canal, connecting North Brunswick, East Brunswick, parts of New Brunswick and Milltown, he said. "Once you link the parks together, you've got about 25 miles of trails for common use," Franchette said. Areas bordering South Brunswick that could be linked to the greenway include the County Fair Grounds and the Irelands Brook Park in East Brunswick. — Vincent A.DeMuro Jr.

State would provide across-the-board aid of $4,000 per student
Rt 27 & Cozzens Lane North Brunswick, NJ
NORTH BRUNSWICK — As the 1996-97 school year approaches, debates over the future of special education in New Jersey are being waged on both state and local levels. In mid-July, a plan which calls for revisions in special education funding was introduced in the state legislature and, if passed, will have a significant effect on the way special education is handled and funded. The plan — backed by Gov. Christine Whitman — is currently the target of both praise and criticism from various special education advocates. Members of the state's strongest grassroots organizations, like the state ARC of New Jersey, headquartered on Livingston Avenue in North Brunswick, are supportive of some parts of the new plan, but skeptical of others. "The changes in special education that this plan willmake will be profound," said Andrew Hendry, director of governmental affairs for the ARC, a national advocacy group for people with learning or physical disabilities. "In particular, there has been concern about the costs of special education," Hendry said. "One of the arguments from parents of regular education students is that special education students are taking away money from other programs." The proposed plan will make two major changes. The first will provide funding for special education students in regular classrooms, a change which special education advocates applaud. The second will give each special education student a set amount of aid, $4,000 per student, an amount which would be loo much for students with minor needs and not enough for individuals with more severe disabililfes. The plan is currently being reviewed by the legislature's education committee and interested groups. Once reviewed, the plan will go back to the state Senate and Assembly, where it was llrst introduced in June, Under the current system, special education students who are able to participate in regular classes with non-disabled students do not receive state aid. Critics argue that this system dissuades the inclusion of special education students in mainstream classrooms. Hendry said (hat the new plan, which would provide categorical aid to special education students in regular classrooms, is preferred over the current system, which does not. He said that special education students who are given the chance to interact with non-disabled students are better able to contribute to society, which, in turn, develops a better understanding of people with mental and physical handicaps. "The more (the public) knows about people with disabilities, the more understanding there will be," Hendry said. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Alan Elko said that the North Brunswick Township School District is now considering the concept of inclusion for certain special education students. "We've been working hafd over the last
year to increase services in the schools for the handicapped," Elko said. "Where youngsters can be served in a normal class setting, that's preferable to, other, separate schools." There arc currently 651 special education students in the North Brunswick school district. Thomasina McBride, director of special services, said that the North Brunswick school district will start a new program which will integrate select special education pupils into regular classrooms. "It will be a ihree-year plan," McBride said. "We're excited about it. The program will mean additional training, not so much the special education teachers, but the regular teachers." McBride sai4»that all of the district's six schools have special education services. "Sometimes we bus students to other schools, like Livingston students to Parsons for (special) classes. Mainly, we try to keep the students in their own areas." Elko stated thai some students would require additional aid in an inclusionary situation or, in some cases, a separate classroom altogether. "If you have a special education student in a regular classroom, you don't just let them sink or swim. Some children really need a separate program. You have to take each child and consider (him or her) separately." Educators and special education advocates do not support the proposed plan with respect to funding. If the proposed legislation becomes law, each school district will receive about $4,000 per student. The current system allows for aid of varying amounts, depending on each pupil's needs and placement. "I think money should be allocated for each student," Elko said. "There shouldn't be a set amount. Some students need special transportation, so that cost differs from a child with a speech disability." Hendry said' that the state came up with the $4,000 figure by averaging out the costs for special education. "There are 200,000 kids in about 600 school districts in New Jersey. They took the average figure from those numbers and came up with $4,000. However, this amount is skewed toward kids with only minor needs." Hendry said that most pupils require only a few hundred dollars of aid,' whereas more extreme cases sometimes require about $10,000 each. In addition, the state will give school districts money based on population and not on the number o( special education students, and there are no laws which require a school with an cxifcss in special education funds to refund the money. McBride said that plans to create a flat., rate fo,r special education students will hurt the program. ' "The state isn't funding the program enough now," she said. "I don't think a flat rate will work. Hendry said that groups like the ARC will continue to push for student-specific funding and other legislation which affects special education. "The state should support funding for special education," Hendry said. "It saves the taxpayers money down the road. A few decades ago, most of these students would have been institutionalized, which was very costly for the public. Now people with autism and physical handicaps can get out and become tax-paying citizens themselves."-

Around 4:30 p.m., a two-car accident caused a fire underneath the Hardenburg Lane overpass in East Brunswick. •Customers started getting service back around midnight, with the majority of lines returning to operation around 3 a.m. "From ground zero, we are talking about 14 hours of interrupted service," Smith said. There were three different groups of cable that were affected, 96 strands of fiber optics in all. The majority of the lines cross the turnpike to South Brunswick. Approximately 65 percent of the homes affected were Comcast Cablevision subscribers About 17 digital nodes used in processing the laser light in fiber optics were affected by the fire. Each node serves about 500 homes. "The fluke that occurs in Central Jersey is that a number of municipalities are separated by the New Jersey Turnpike," Smith said. "We have to cross these highways using the only available means, the
overpasses. "When something like this happens, it leaves the cable lines vulnerable," Smith said. The PVC utility conduits containing the fiber optic lines were directly affected by the fire, melting the cable lines completely. The fiber optic cable is surrounded by a rubber coating to protect it from the elements. The coating covers a metal casing that provides strength, and the casing contains the plastic tubes which house the hair-thin optical glass fibers. "Fiber optic cable has incredible tensile strength," Smith said. "You can take a length of cable strung between two poles and theoretically support the weight of an elephant. "But if you expose them to heat, they melt," Smith said. Smith said that if this had occurred a few months earlier, there might have been more service interruptions. "We recently started changing the cable capacities to increase service to the area," Smith said. There are two types of cable systems. The coaxial design resembles a tree and branches, and the fiber optic design resembles a wheel with spokes. In the old system, this accident would have completely severed the "trunk" of the service, cutting access to all the branches. Since the new service acts like the spokes of a wheel, power was cut off from the center hub, Comcast headquarters, down one spoke of the line. If any subscriber to Comcast Cable-

1993, for example, it jumped from 132 to 179. "You've got to point out, though, that the increase is in reported incidents, not in the incidents themselves," Schmalz said "There can be dozens of othci cases not getting reported, but they are still happening.'
Schmalz said the formation of a Domestic Violence Response Team in 1991 has contributed to the increase in reports of domestic violence. The team offers service to the victims including education, support, and counseling 'Thanks to this service, we have seen an increase in reported incidents, but a drop in the number of repeat cases," Schmal/. said. In the area of bias crimes, police attribute the drop from 17 incidents in 1994 to five last year to community policing efforts among the township's youth. Schmalz said in 1993 police became aware of a problem developing among young people. From 1992 to 1993, there was a use in bias crime, from 5 to 15 incidents, mostly among the young community. The numbers continued to increase with 17 incidents in 1994. "Since then, we have been working coactivcly with the community to address the problem," Schmalz said. Arsons dropped from three to iwo, but again, police reported that this type of crime is "hit 01 miss," in that police cannot take prevcntative nieasuies, From 1990 to 1993, South Brunswick's population remained al about 26,000 residents and the police force stayed relatively the same size, averaging 66 officers and 20 civilian employees. As a result of an early-retirement program in 1993, the force dropped to 56 in 1994. After being appointed chief in 1994, Police Chief Michael Paquctte applied foi a number of grants that allowed the department to return to 64 officeis in 1995, with 29 civilian employees. • "The numbers tell it in black and white," Schmalz said. "We were able to reduce crime with the limited number. "The residents have to see these numbers and realize thai we are doing a very credible job as the population grows and the crime index drops," Schmalz said.

Accident snarls traffic NORTH BRUNSWICK — An accident involving two motor vehicles occurred on Route I at the beginning of rush hour Friday, blocking traffic for an hour, police said. Margaret Clark, 59, from Englishtown was given a summons for reckless driving, Lt. Dan Shine said. According to Shine, Clark was about 100 feet south of College Farm Road when she cut across two lanes of traffic in her 1995 Toyota. Clark collided into a 1995 Chevy Geo, driven by Derek Park, 30, of Mount Holly. Park's vehicle hit the divider and
flipped onto its side before skidding across three lanes and coming to a stop on the grassy shoulder, Shine said. Park was uninjured in the accident. His passenger, John Francesco, 27, of Atco, and Clark suffered minor head injuries and were transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick, by the North Brunswick First Aid Squad, Shine said. The incident was investigated by Patrolman Patrick McGinn. Both vehicles involved in the accident were totaled, Shine said.

Cops use toys to comfort kids NORTH BRUNSWICK — In addition to enforcing the law and maintaining the peace, township officers are now equipped to comfort the young in times of stress and trauma. Patrolmen who arrive on the scene of an accident will be able to ease young minds with a toy animal, police said. North Brunswick police officers are the latest participants in "Toys for Tots," a program initiated by the U.S. Marine Corps years ago.
Lt. Dan Shine said that the Police Department procured 100 Goofy dolls from the program through Middlesex County Freeholder Jane Brady. "We carry the dolls in our patrol cars on the way to a motor vehicle accident or any other incident with children. We can give them to children who have been in traumatic situations." AT&T Corp. augmented the Goofy stock by donating 100 teddy bears to the Police Department.

Schools brace for a long ride on Internet By Bonnie Griffiths (k)rrespondi'nl ave computer, will travel. That's become the motto of students in -^ just about every clementaiy, middle and high school in our area, thanks to the fact that their classroom computers are just some of the millions nationwide now linked to the Internet. This year, students in many local districts will have the opportunity to jet through cyberspace and explore the oceans, travel to Spain, converse with scientists and meet children from around the world — all before the school bell rings. These days, a little modem goes a very long way. "It's opened up the entire world to our students," says Pal Marascio, Computer Education B.S.I. Supervisor for Middletown Township, where an on-line program was piloted just last year. "Our students now have the opportunity to access information from libraries and data bases in other countries, phis obtain material that's so current it would only be contained in periodicals, such as the crash of TWA flight 800 or the 1996 Summer Olympics. "We're coming to an age where we'll see a lot less information in print, and a lot more people using computers. It's already progressing that way and there's no turning back," Marascio says. "The printed word is slowly going to become extinct as better means of communication become available. For example, one of our projects last year found some of the students with e-mail pals in Australia. They were able to exchange ideas and experience another culture on a daily basis, instantly receiving feedback that would have taken weeks with written mail." Middletown Township's program was piloted on a small scale at every academic level from elementary through high school, and this year will be upgraded to include a total of 50 Internet accounts in the district's 17 buildings. An "Acceptable Use Program" has been implemented in the schools, whereby students must sign a contract and stay within strict guidelines while using the account. The township ,also hopes to begin a "new program this year that will help parents purchase an inexpensive home computer package, already wired and ready to go with three months of on-line service. In Keyport's Central School, the students first went on-line about three years ago with Fort Monmouth's Adopt-aSchool program.

Gadgets and gizmo intrigue youngsters By The Associated Press or a light break from all the serious business of getting ready for school, here are some innovative and fun products to consider: • Gilbert the Fish is a largc-mouth insulated lunch kit who keeps his lip zipped until mealtime. The big mouth unzips, then folds down to serve as a place mat. His tail fin has a zippered compartment for keys, mad money, and other small valuables. The kit, from Rubbermaid, is blueberry- and jade-colored with red zippered mouth; it costs about $10. • Who.says a stapler has to be dull? The Swingline Electronic Stapling Machine has a see-through case and brightly colored gears and levers, so you can see what happens when the machine senses the paper and delivers the staple. The stapler, created by ACCO North America, loads 105 standard staples, has a 12-sheet capacity, and is powered by four AA batteries. Price is about $20. • Classroom cutups will enjoy the line of craft and drawing implements from Fiskars, all in bright colors. Paper Edgers ($7.50 each) are scissors on the

Preschool years good time to teach tolerance By The Associated Press lesson of tolerance — learning to accept others who have disabilities — may best be taught in the preschool years, a Purdue University child development specialist believes. "You don't see the teasing of other children and overt meanness that can be displayed by older kids," says Karen E. Diamond, associate professor of child development and family studies, "Also, preschoolers are open and curious. They ask a lot of questions. They also like to test and learn about the equipment that's associated with disabilities, such as walkers and computer aids." Diamond, who directs the university's Child Development Labs, a preschool program that includes children with disabilities, has been conducting research about how normal children interact with disabled peers. She has found that from at least age 4, children are aware of others' disabilities. "Disabilities associated with adaptive equipment — for example leg braces and hearing aids — are obviously easier for young children to notice. But our data point to the fact that young children can pick up on less obvious cues, such as developmental delays in cognition, language and physical abili-

Noticing them isn't the same as understanding them, she says. "In one study, several children leferred to a peer's hearing aids or auditory trainer as the cause of his hearing loss. These children appeared to believe that the equipment interfered with, rather than aided, the child's hearing." It's known that by I he ihial or fourth grade, many childien have developed negative attitudes toward those with disabilities, she says. But her studies suggest that preschoolers who know peers with disabilities are more accepting of other children wtth disabilities. Diamond says interaction during play will depend on circumstances. "For example, if they are outside, it may be difficult to include a child in a wheelchair in a game requiring a lot of movement. On the other hand, the disability doesn't pose a problem for some indoor activities such as building with blocks. "Also, individual personalities come, into play. Children may befriend a child with a disability because he's kind and cheerful. "All young children, whether disabled or not, need the help of others at some time. In a sense, all children are handicapped in an adult world,"she said.

The combination of good looks and durability make boots the choice for both kids and their parents.
Sturdy boots are this year's choice
risp jeans, fresh notebooks and brand-new stylish boots. Get geared up for the upcoming school scene with this year's ultimate fashion statement — a brand-new pair of authentic, rugged and great-looking boots. Boots are the ultimate footwear choice for a lough, active school year, whether it's fierce motorcycle boots for high-school students, sporty casual footwear for kids or the ideal Western boots for any age. With children's active lifestyles and the fickle whims of fashion, parents' challenge today is finding tough, quality shoes with timeless, classic style. Justin Bool Co. offers the ultimate answer for kids — Sport Lace-Rs for Kids. Sport Lace-Rs will meet parents' practical needs for a sturdy shoe that is guaranteed to last until kids outgrow them. Complete with full-grain leather uppers, they come in browns, black, white and fun two-tones that will add a sharp, sporty touch to a wide range of current fashion looks, from funky T-shirts and shorts to jean vests and sweaters. If it's khakis and button-down shirts or even holiday attire, another ideal casual footwear choice this school season is the new Tony Lama Red Lites line for Kids. Available in black, brown or gold leather with pull-on or lace-up styles, they are another ideal solution for the casual sporty looks that are sweeping the nation, parents and kids alike. If it's a solid, utilitarian and rugged boot that's in order this school year, a pair of black leather motorcycle boots or distressed brown 8-inch lace-up loggers make a bold statement for both men and women. Tough lug soles, thick weatherproof leather and authentic style are part of what make Chippewa Boots the most
authentic and practical rugged boot available. Parents should take nole of how, important it is to get the right fit in their children's shoes and boots are no exception. The authentic boot makers of the country maintain the tradition of carefully fitting their customers by offering the following tips. • The foot should slip a bit in the heel of a new Western boot. Because the boot is new and the sole is stiff, slippage is normal. After the boot is worn, the sole flexes in the ball, and most of the slippage disappears. If there is no initial heel slippage, the boot may be too tight and could cause blisters. • The instep of a boot should be snug, but not tight. If the foot slips in too easily ihe first time, the instep is probably too loose, and a different size is required Check the fit by sliding your thumb across the instep. This should cause a slight ripple of leather to advance across the boot.. • The ball of the foot is the area right behind the, toes and is the widest area of tlie foot. The 'ball of the foot must align with the ball of the boot. If the ball of the foot sits too far forward and the toes cram into the boot's toe box, the boot is too short. When the boot fits right, the toes should be one-half to three-quarters of an inch from the end of the boot. • A steel shank in the arch of the boot gives the boot sturdy support. This is one of the reasons boots are generally more comfortable than shoes. Most boots have no laces to hold them securely to the foot, so width and size are extremely important to proper fitting. In general, if a boot doesn't feel right the first time, try another size. The extra time spent choosing a boot will make for a quality purchase.
