Crime rate is down in township BY VINCENT A. DE MURO JR. Staff Writer

B

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."-

Accident cuts cable to 5,000 homes BY VINCENT A. DE MURO JR. Staff W r i t e r SOUTH BRUNSWICK — An accident Friday on the New Jersey Turnpike south at exit 9 resulted in the interruption of cable television service to approximately 3,500 Comcast Cablevision subscribers in South Brunswick. Robert Smith, a public relations spokesperson for Comcast, said over 5,000 homes in South Brunswick and East Brunswick were affected by a fire that destroyed a major cable crossing over the highway. 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-

Besides the thrill of international competition, Zhuang enjoyed other benefits of being an Olympian. "I got to meet the members of the 'Dream Team,' " he beamed. "I also met President Clinton when he visited the village (where the athletes stayed)." Now that Zhuang and Fu are back in North Brunswick, they can savor the memories of the games.

Zhuang returned to his job and a warm welcome from his fellow employees at Diamond Flowers Electric Northeast Inc. in East Brunswick. "I (especially) owe thanks to my boss, Rocky Liu, who supported me and gave me time to train." When asked whether he will be in Sydney in 2000, the 32-year-old Olympian paused, then laughed.

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.

OUR VIEW

Where are the S.B. candidates?

T

here are only 15 days left to submit a petition to become a candidate for the South Brunswick Charter Study Commission. So far, only three residents have done so. Voters will elect five members to the commission in the November general election. The plan is to have voters choose from a list of candidates and select the five residents they feel are., the most qualified.' But, how can residents choose if there are not enough candidates? If you have not considered running, now is the lime to do so. The commission will be considering a change of government possibly from a Township Committee to a Township Council. The council form of government is larger and has an elected mayor. The commission will only study the idea. It will still be up

to residents to decide if they want to change. A change in the form of government is a very important matter and should not be taken lightly. Also, serving on the commission is a good opportunity to learn how local government works, something too few taxpayers understand. If you have not considered running, why not do so now, before time runs out. All you have to do is pick up a petition from the township clerk, get 100 people to sign it in support of your candidacy and get it back to the township clerk's office in time. There are many vocal people in South Brunswick, quick to complain about what is happening in their back yards. South Brunswick is in the midst of growing pains. Serving on the commission is one important way to ensure that the township will have a sound future. So, come on, give it a try.

LITTERS

Stand up for free speech

P

olitics have become very costly in North Brunswick. Not in terms of dollars, but a much more precious commodity — volunteer time. When someone made the decision the township was not going to pay for a track backhoe to help fight the mid-June fire that destroyed the Pulda's barn, volunteers had to stand by for days, instead of hours, to put that fire out. If they'd been paid fireman on overtime, I'm sure the backhoe would have been there. We owe even more to those willing to offer their time to keep our taxes down — not less that was delivered that weekend. Now a few volunteers are trying to punish another because he spoke his views in public. The last I heard, our fire companies were seeking more help. Now one of them is telling someone they don't want his help. Yes, Sandy Gurtov can get under one's skin. But, he also accomplishes what he set out to do, making him a valuable part of any effort. Unless the leadership of North Brunswick Volunteer Fire/Ladder Company Number 3 can retract their action and speak publicly for free speech, they can forget the support of this-resident.

And those speaking publicly for this action by the fire company should include our elected officials. JIM BRUMM North Brunswick

Questions raised about motivation

I

am writing in response to a recent letter by the North Brunswick mayor and council which appears to attack Republicans for being "negative." While I do not question the right of our elected officials to write such letters, I do question their motivation. The fact is that North Brunswick's elected officials have been exclusively Democrats for years. They have held all the power. They have made all the decisions. Lashing out at Republicans seems' to be an attempt to avoid taking responsibility for their decisions. Instead of writing letters attacking those who do not hold office, I would like to see the mayor and council write letters explaining their actions. It is time for our elected officials to stand up and take responsibility for their actions, and to stop trying to lay the blame on those who are not in office.

LETTERS Liaisons do not oversee S.B. department heads

Y

esterday, I read a letter from Ms. Vicki Yandolino concerning the code enforcement department and liaisonship relationships. I would like to take advantage of the opportunity Ms. Yandolino gave me to discuss how our present form of government in South Brunswick works. Under the Township Committee system, all five committee members should have equal vote. The majority normally controls the decisions made in the town simply because they have the most votes. All committee members sit on township boards/committees and serve as liaisons. In addition, we each serve as liaisons to various township departments. As department liaisons, we are responsible for serving as conduits from the department to the committee. We, the committee members, do not supervise department heads. We communicate concerns from the Township Committee to the department and vice versa. Under this form of government, department heads are paid to

supervise their stalls. The administrator is paid to supervise the department heads, and the Township Committee relies on the professional staff to give us the information we need to make the best decisions we can for the town. When the Township Committee does not receive appropriate information, it is our responsibility on the whole to find out why and correct any and all problems. The Bcekman Manor problems, as well as other problems in developments in this town, arc very serious and severe. All Township Committee members are responsible for investigating the concerns associated with these issues, and I believe most committee members have participated in trying to resolve the problems occurring in several areas of the town. In fact, after visiting the Bcekman Manor site with township staff, the mayor, Mr. Van Hessen, staled that there were no code violations. Even so, I still Celt it necessary to pursue various avenues to try and rectify the prob-

lems being faced by the citizens of the town. For example, after visiting the construction, school and Hood sites several times, I have asked the administrator for a full investigation of every issue sui rounding the Bcekman Manor/Parsons Road/Williams Road situation. I have also been working will] residents and staff to reach viable solutions. Bcekman Manor/Parsons Road residents, who were seriously affected by the present situation, have on more than one occasion, both publicly and privately, acknowledged and thanked me for my efforts, and 1 am still working to do all I can to help all the citizens I can. I would also like to add, should any cili/en of South Brunswick have a problem that has no relationship to any of the departments that I am liaison to, I would still be happy to assist them in any way I possibly can. DEBRA JOHNSON South Brunswick

It appears that controversy is hiding the truth

M

ayor (Paul) Matacera seems to have a real problem with the Republicans in the township that write letters to the editor that criticize this administration Since I am a registered Democrat, I guess I won't be accused of trying to tear down the township's reputation. Perhaps if Mayor Matacera spent less time DAVID C. BARRY finding out what political party North Brunswick the letter writer belongs to, he

might have time to answer the many questions about the unbelievable tax increase he so kindly has passed and the Pulda farm fire. Remember, Mayor Matacera, when you were elected you said, "Once elected we serve all the people. ..." Doesn't that include Republicans that write letters to the editor, even if they criticize you? Although you staled that Bruce Chandlee wasn't motivated

by partisan politics, I seem to remember him seeking the nomination from ihc Democratic Party to run for freeholder last year. Wouldn't you call that political, mayor? Please, Mayor Matacera, stick to the facts, and let's have some honest answers to this latest fiasco at the Pulda farm. I think the residents of the township deserve some truthful answers over this controversy SUSAN BALDINI North Brunswick

Fire company is a nonpartisan entity

T

he recent series of articles and an editorial which have appeared in the Sentinel clearly misstate and misunderstand the publicized expulsion of Mr. Gurtov from North Brunswick Volunteer Fire/Ladder Company 3. The fire company would like to clarify our position on this matter. North Brunswick Volunteer Fire Company No. 3 exists and is governed by its constitution and bylaws, adopted and ratified on Sept. 15, 1959. Each of its members, upon admission into the fire company, is given a copy and takes an oath to abide by Us contents. This oath was taken by Mr. San ford Gurtov when he was admitted as a social member of I'ire Company No. 3 approximately six years ago. Contraiy to any misapprehension created by the many statements reported on this matter, Mr. Gurtov is not a firefighter. He is a social member. A social member is one who, because of "personal affairs, health reasons and/or current township ordinance, cannot be an active member" (a line firefighter). The bylaws state that, "ft shall he the duty of social members to give the fire company theii moral support and must help with any non-fire-fighting activities (i.e., work nights, meetings, fund diive and other fund-raising activities" (constitution and bylaws, Article 2, Section 7). This was Mr. Gurtov's position throughout his entire tenure. It has always been an explicit and implicit objective of Fire Co. No. 3 to separate itself from the political process and the political affairs of the town. In this regard, we all, as members of the Fire Co. No. 3, have pledged that fire company business and local politics shall remain separate. In this regard, all members are prohibited from introducing religious or political subjects at a meeting, fiie, or fire company activity; there shall be no distribution or posting of political literature or cards on fire company property or events (Article 5, Section 6); and no member shall communicate to persons not members of the company any fire company business out of the area of their responsibility or authority (Article 5, Section 5). These prohibitions are in place to assure the citizens of North Brunswick of a fircfighting unit, free of political influences. We assure you that this is the way we stand now and will stand in the future. The insinuation has been made that our rules prohibit freedom of speech. Such a comment is without basis Each person, in their own name, can voice their opinions, debate their beliefs and vote their conscience as free men. The only line that our constitution insists we draw is that the name of the fire company or a member's status in the company not be lent to any political purpose. The integrity of this long-held rule remains our objective. Any member refusing to conform to the constitution, bylaws or rules of order of the

company shall be subject to charges (Article 5, Section 5). Our constitution and bylaws further set out the procedures to be employed for the discipline of any member. First, charges must be filed in writing with the Board of Trustees of the fire company (Article 6) stating the reasons for the charges (Article 6, Section 1). The Board of Trustees consists of three members. If the trustees agree by a majority vote that there are sufficient grounds based on the Fire/Ladder Co. No. 3 constitution and bylaws, they shall notify the president in writing. The president must inform the member at least seven (7) days prior to the date set for hearing. The notice must state the date, lime and location of the hearing and the charges being hoard (Article 8), The hearing board is comprised of the three trustees and three line officers, with the president as chairperson (Article 7). The only persons permitted to attend the hearing are the members of the hearing board, the charged member(s), the person making the charge and any witnesses. Any charged member may have another company member represent him or act as his spokesman (Article 7, Section E). In accord with these directives, Mr. Gurtov was properly notified. In fact, he was present at the firehousc on Aug. 5, the scheduled hearing date. When his hearing was convened, he was asked to participate, and he declined. Mr. Gurtov remained in the firehouse during the proceedings. Consistent with Article 7, Section G, the hearing was to be held even if the charged member chose not to attend. All of the procedural rights were extended to Mr. Gurtov. Mr. Gurtov has, under our constitution and bylaws, the right to appeal to the fire department. It is our hope that any allegation of misconduct on the part of the fire company officers or the Hearing Board be addressed in this forum. The citizens of North Brunswick should be assured that the persons who show up at any fire scene are not Republican firemen or Democratic firemen. We have always been and shall remain nonpolitical North Brunswick Volunteer Firemen. JOSEPH MAZZA President LARRY HART Trustee MARC WEYD Trustee CHRIS SACCO Trustee Executive Board NBVF/LCo 3

Poisonous Plants & Household Substances

A

Did you know that: • Poisonous plants and berries are one of the. leading causes of poisoning in young children? Owners of small pets should also learn more about the effects of some plants. • Most accidental poisonings occur in children ages 2-3, usually around mealtime, when children are hungry and parents tend to be distracted with chores. • There are more than 700 poisonous plants found in homes, gardens and in natural settings in the U.S. Some are entirely poisonous, while others have poisonous elements, such as bulbs of the tulip and narcissus bulbs, mistletoe berries, apple or apricot seeds, tomato and rhubarb leaves, the flower of the jasmine plant. • There is no need to panic if your child has eaten a leaf of a plant. With certain exceptions, such as hemlock, leaves generally do not cause serious poisoning, though they are one of the frequent causes of minor poisoning. • If you believe your child has ingested any potentially toxic material, immediately contact your regional Poison Control Center (1-800-764-7661). The center can determine the toxicity of the material and advise whether or not the child should be induced to vomit and/or taken to the emergency room. • To prevent poisoning, store medications, pesticides, petroleum and household cleaning products out of the reach of children and pets. • Post the 911 and Poison Control numbers near the phone. • Have ipecac syrup on hand to induce vomiting, but use only if a health professional tells you to do so. In some cases, such as ingesting a house cleaner or petroleum product such as gasoline, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. • If your child is unconscious, check vital signs. If the signs are absent, call for help immediately and begin mouth-tomouth respiration or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Charity walk at Cook College The Juvenile Diabetes Foundation has slated its annual "Walk for the Cure" on Sunday, Sept. 29 at Rutgers University's Cook College campus, North Brunswick. The foundation's Mid Jersey Chapter, which includes Middlesex County, is hoping to raise $250,000 for research projects aimed at finding a cure for diabetes. Last year, the walk raised $ 188,000. The fund-raiser is presented by Oxford Health Plans. More than 30 firms have already indicated that their employees will walk the course, which is 6.2 miles on the Cook College campus. The public is invited to join in the fund-raiser. Prizes will be awarded to walkers raising $75 or more. For information and pledge forms, call the Mid Jersey Juvenile Diabetes Foundation office at (908) 422-9590.

Ragweed: 'Pollen Enemy No. 1'

BeiHK

i

SPECIAL

n especially viailent allergy season has been forecast for most of the United States from now until late fall as many varieties of plants mature and release their noxious cargo of pollen. The worst is ragweed, the ugly plant with the beautiful name (Ambrosia) that has been identified across the United States as "pollen enemy No. 1." Encountered in every state, ragweed is responsible for more summer allergy discomfort than any other cause, according to respiratory specialist Dr. Calvin Fuhrmann, of Baltimore. Pollen-induced illnesses include rhinitis, also known as hay fever, sinusitis and asthma, Dr. Fuhrmann'said in an interview..by the Holmes Indoor Air Quality News Bureau: Q. Is hay fever really a fever? A. In earlier days, when people worked at gathering and baling hay, many of them would receive such a terrific dose of grass allergens that their systems would act like they had a fever. They would develop cold symptoms, like headache, runny nosey sore throat and actual fever. Ttus was a systemic reaction that we now recognize as an inflammatory response known as hay fever. Today, it's more common to experience hay fever from exposure to allergens like ragweed. Q. How does ragweed affect the body? Can it cause serious illness? A. Ragweed is the most potent allergen among all of the plants in our environment. It's a common weed that grows virtually everywhere, especially where there is more moisture, and releases its pollen from midsummer to the first frost. Ragweed pollen enters the nose and throat and causes an intense allergic i reaction. One serious illness resulting from ragweed allergy is sinusitis, which is characterized by swollen tissues in the nose that block the normal drainage passages of the sinuses. Because drainage is blocked, infection can occur. And, of course, there's the dreadful and life-threatening disease known as asthma. Asthma sufferers should try to avoid respiratory allergens, and especially avpid ragweed. Q. What precautions can ragweedsensitive people take outdoors during ragweed season?

A. The best thing to do about ragweed is to avoid it. It's no accident that northern Atlantic beaches and drier mountain areas of the Southwest became popular vacation spots, because ragweed does not flourish in those areas and people feel better. I recommend to my patients that they stay aware of ragweed pollen and take the precaution of using preventive medication if they're going to be exercising outdoors. Q. How about indoors? Do ragweed and other pollen invade our homes? A. Pollen is carried by air currents, and it is virtually impossible to prevent your home from being inundated with a cloud of allergens. They come in through open doors and windows or on your clothing and pets. Ragweed pollen is very small and just about invisible. Q. Is there a w a y to protect against ragweed without completely sealing up your home? A. The way to protect yourself from ragweed is to use proper air filters on cooling and ventilation equipment and also to clean the air with a HEPA-filtration air purifier. Air purifiers are quite effective, because they can be individualized. People sensitive to pollen and. other airborne allergens can have an air purifier in any room, the bedroom for instance, and really make sure of breathing clean and clear air. Recent research clearly identifies the benefits of an allergen-free environment for those, people with serious illnesses, like asthma and sinusitis. The same technology used in those experiments is available at a reasonable cost in HEPA-filtration room air purifiers. The booklet, Household Allergies, from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation is now available free in cartons containing Holmes air purifiers with 1IHPA filtration systems capable of removing pollen and other particles as small as .3 microns. By comparison, a human hair is 75 microns in diameter. Household Allergies provides a roomby-room system for reducing exposure to allergens — to help make a home a safer place to breathe. A limited number of free copies are available by calling Holmes at 1-800-5-HOLMES.

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. "The purpose of the program was to help spark an interest and awareness in the fields of science

"We're certainly not abandoning textbooks and libraries and all the good, sound basic practices in education. That would b e absurd." In October, Keyport High School and many other schools across the state will also pin this world of the cosmically connected through Lucent Technologies' NetDay NJ, a newly created program designed to launch New Jersey's schools into the Information Age.

Check credentials of on-line schools

"A Lifetime Experience" Pre-School-2,3 or 5 day programs. Full or Half Day Day Care Available 7:30 am-6:00 pm

f you're taking courses through cyberspace, it's still important to check out the school's credentials the old-fashioned way, experts say. Dubbed "distance education," online classes have attracted more than 300,000 students, estimates the National Continuing Education Association. Some educators say.that in the future, most students will take at least some of their course work on-line. "It's a buyer's market, so picking the right school is a critical choice," says Dr. Lynne D. Ballard, director of the continuing education division at Champlain College in Burlington, Vt. She recommends checking whether the school is accredited. And you might want to learn what the business world thinks about the school you're considering. "Think carefully before investing time and money in a school that isn't accredited," she cautions. "Ask your employer or other employers in the marketplace about how they would view a degree or certificate from that school." Dullard's school offers SuccessNet, an on-line distance learning program that offers "virtual classrooms" to students who can. earn a range of professional certificates and degrees entirely by computer. . Her advice is echoed by Dr. Elizabeth A. McDaniel, executive provost and vice president of academic affairs at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., another school that offers on-line classes. She adds that potential students should also find out if there are opportunities to chat electronically with other students — an advantage because many of your classmates likely will be people with real world experience. "In the best classrooms, students learn from other students as well as from the professor," she says. "It's the same on-line." In fact, you should expect to participate more in classroom discussion than you would in a normal lecture hall setting, she says. And the teacher should be able to reply to your electronically mailed questions in 36 hours or less. "If not, you may not be getting the personalized attention you deserve," says McDaniel, "A 24-hour response time should be the goal." Distance learning methods include audio cassettes, on-line by computer, interactive audio-video, and satellite networks. Broadcast television or one-way video may be frustrating if you like exchanges with classmates, the administrators say. But if your reading and writing skills are weak, you may have trouble with on-line courses, which rely heavily on those skills and are the basis of interaction among students and teachers.

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-

ties."

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.

Study stresses safety of sports equipment By Stephen Sobek The Associated Press

softei baseball might have saved Casey Stevenson horn spending an entne season in the dugout last year The 15-yeai-old bioke his elbow when he was hit by a pitch while playing for Albert Einstein High School in Montgomery County in Maryland Baseball makes up a large part of Stevenson's life — he also played for two different league teams The use of softei balls and face guards on batting helmets could mean fewer injuries for thousands of young sluggeis, according to a repoit released Tuesday at Camden Yards by the Consumer Product Safety Commission "I don't know how the new equipment will help, but it does make you more confident, less nervous at the plate," Stevenson said Baseball, Softball and teeball are among the most popular kid sports, with an estimated 19 million children ages 5 to 14 playing the games, y e a r - ; " - , the commission said Hospital emeigency rooms treated 162,100 children for baseball-related injuries last year Most of the broken bones, chipped teeth and cuts and bruises happened when players were stiuck with balls or bats So the government safety agency launched a study last year and calculated that using softer balls and face guards on batting helmets could reduce the number and senousness of injuries by about 58,000 annually, the feport said The study also covered bases that release upon impact Sliding injuries

puters to haiass, insult oi attack someone They also would be banned from peeking in their classmates' hies, damaging equipment, or violating copyright laws or exchange passwords To ensure responsible use of the Internet, some schools are using commercial or in-house programs to block access to inappropriate material, says Linda Roberts, the Education Department's director of educational technology Schools should judge Internet sites on then educational ment and not block sections of because of community pressures, says Chris Hansen, semen staff counsel for the Amencan Civil Libeities Union's national office in New York "I think the danger here is that schools will rush to overreact," Hansen said Roberts said some schools, including ones in Olympia, Wash , also are soliciting students to help set ground rules and police the system For two years, Abby Polzin, a senior at Capital High School in Olympia, has helped monitor the school netwoik, checking for offensive language and threats She also looks for cases in which large numbers of students send a volume of offending messages to one person — a piactice called "flaming " "One person would post a message saying This person is a jerk' and it would turn into a big fight on-line,"

Fama noted that the Children's House has no affiliation with either church, other than renting the space there. The Milltown facility educates children between the ages of 2 i/2 to going on 6, while the Dayton facility, which Fama also directs, accepts children ages 2 1/2 to going on 5. In keeping with the Montessori tradition, classrooms are multi-age, said Fama. "The children learn at their own individual pace. We have 2 1/2-yearolds who know the alphabet already and 3-yearolds who can read. With the individualized approach, they can develop according to iheir ability. They aren't left behind. "I think it's a very high quality program," added Fama. "It gives children a lot of opportunities to develop their intellectual, social and emotional skills. It also gives them a very strong foundation in preparation for elementary school." For information on the Montessori Children's House in Milltown, call 8460164; in Dayton, call 329-3577.

In keeping with the Montessori tradition, classrooms are multi-age.

Maiyann Keller, director of Unitarian Montessori, located on Tices Lane in East Brunswick, provides further insight into the Montessori Method, Dr. Montessori concluded that a child's natural interest in language could be enhanced by showing them .symbols, explained Keller, adding that Dr. Montessori also was the first to use manipulation (touching objects) to teach counting and numbers. At Unitarian Montessori, the symbols for Ihe alphabet are raised sandpaper shapes on wooden boards. "They're very tactile and they like to manipulate things" said Keller of the children. "They trace the sounds and teachers will identify it." The traditional Montessori classroom is one large room, although Unitarian has three rooms. "Children are free to go through the environment," said Keller. "We call it 'the work,' just like Mommy and Daddy go to work." The classroom has shelves, where "the work" is on trays; the shelves are divided into areas for language, math, science, geography, and other subjects. Each area' has books, but not textbooks, Keller emphasized. "Materials line children learn from are more manipulative," 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

j

C

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.

Annual Report on Crime

Domestic violence is up BY MELISSA KRESS Staff W r i t e r n 1995, law enforcement officers responded to the highest number of domestic violence reports the stale has ever seen. According to the Uniform Crime Report, reported cases of domestic violence rose from 70,991 in "94 to 86,631 in '95. The number of arrests for domestic violence rose from 25,364 in 1994 to 29,061 in '95. "We made the most arrests ever in 1995. Unfortunately, the more people we arrest, the more reported cases we have," South River Police Chief Francis X. Eib said. Under the state law, domestic violence is broken into 14 categories. Those categories include hoinicide, assault, terroristic threats, kidnapping, criminal restraint, false imprisonment, sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, lewdness, criminal mischief, burglary, criminal trespass, harassment and stalking. Stalking as a form of domestic violence was first reported last year, Eib said. Also in 1995, law enforcement officials added dating violence to the definition of a domestic violence victim, he said. Of the 14 categories, only terroristic threats offenses fell in the last year. The number of all other offenses in the state increased. For example, homicides as a result of domestic violence rose 45 percent and sexual assaults rose 65 percent, Eib said. Eib, the representative of the New Jersey

there arc clear signs of domestic violence, regardless if the victim wants to press charges, he said. "If we observe physical injury, we are required by law to make an arrest," Eib said. Domestic violence is not usually an isolated act. The number of domestic violence complaints that had prior court orders issued against the offender increased from 17,007 in 1994 to 19,747 in 1995. This is a 16 percent increase. "Each individual domestic violence act stands alone," Jamesburg Police Chief Victor Knowlcs said. "This is a town that historically has a lot of domestic violence," Knowles added. "It is not a very pleasant thing for anybody to go through." In Middlesex County, South River had 1990 1991 1992 1893 1994 1935 the highest number of reported domestic Source: Slate Police Uniform Crime Report, 1995 violence offenses with 446 incidents.

Crisis centers offer women safe haven BY MELISSA KRESS

Staff Writer

A

s the reported cases of domestic violence rise in the state, so docs the number of victims. In 25 percent of the 1995 domestic violence reports, wives were the victims. Exwives were the victims in 3 percent of the offenses. Overall, women were victims in 81 percent, or 70,042, of all domestic violence offenses last year. Women Aware Inc., in Middlesex County, is an outreach center for women and their children who have been victims of domestic violence. The crisis center also has a hotline for victims to call, Women Aware Inc. representative Barbara Alpher said. "We have a 24-hour, scven-day-a-week hotline, and there is always a person available," Alpher said. The outreach center services are free and confidential to everyone seeking help. The center has a shelter program which places women and their children in a confidential safe house, she said. Women Aware Inc. also oilers women legal advocacy, Alpher said. "We don't offer legal advice. We just help people understand their rights under the domestic violence laws," she said. The outreach center has support groups for women, community education programs and training area businesses, she said. "We will go anywhere people want us to come. We have gone to churches, synagogues and clubs," Alpher said. Aside from the support groups for adult victims, Women Aware Inc. has a program designed for children victims. ELVES (Empower the Littlest Victim to Emerge Strong) is aimed at children and funded through a fund-raiser held each March. Women Aware Inc. has paid staff who are educated in domestic violence. It also has volunteers. Each county has its own domestic violence crisis center, but they are loosely connected, under the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women, Alpher said. In Monmouth County, victims seeking help can contact the Women's Center of Monmouth County. The New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women was formed in 1977 to help victims of domestic violence. It assists local shelters, educates the public to increase awareness of domestic violence, offers free training to law enforcement, churches, professional groups and community groups. The coalition also provides statistics .to the state on domestic violence and publishes the only state newsletter on domestic violence.

Hunting just part of Muzzle Loaders BY JIMMY ALUNDER Staff Writer

I

t is sportsmanship in its purest form. Peter Troncone, an avid outdoorsman his entire life, is president of the New Jersey Muzzle Loaders Association. His avocation is to practice his love of fishing, hunting and camping the way people did it during the time between the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Now ponder that a moment and consider what life was like in that era. No electricity, no running water, no plumbing and, from an outdoorsman's perspective, the weapons certainly weren't much like what hunters have today. It was not a matter of loading manufactured shells that have a precisely measured powder charge. Rather, it was much more of a "do-ityourself" approach, requiring a good deal of skill not needed by today's outdoorsman. "This type of hunting is the fastestgrowing sport in New Jersey," according to Troncone, a resident of Monroe. "And why not? We've always sought out the fairest type of hunting that provided the challenge of making the kill, but giving the animal the best chance. Muzzle-loading guns provide that." For those unfamiliar with muzzle-loading guns, gunpowder is loaded down the barrel. That is topped with a lubricated patch, atop of which sits a round ball or a heavier hunting slug. The slug is forced down the barrel with a ramrod until it is securely seated atop the powder charge. Typically, it takes from thirty seconds to a minute to load each round. The amount of powder loaded depends on the size of the slug, how far the marksman is shooting, and what he's shooting at. If a hunter misses his first shot, he often doesn't get another. "If you're shooting at targets," Troncone said, "you'd add a 40-50 grain load. If the target is an animal such as a deer, you'd increase it to 70-100 grains. And that's right. We owe it to the animal to make a clean kill." But the hunting is only part of a larger picture for Troncone and his organization. One of the favorite activities of the Muzzle Loaders Association is to reenact an encampment that might have been found during the early 1800s. Many groups like Troncone's re-enact a Rocky Mountain fur trade encampment, which means that all clothing, weapons and equipment used by the group would have been used prior to 1840. Some groups, especially in the East, allow those persons portraying individuals in the French and Indian Wars to be included, and some groups extend their time period up to the start of the Civil War. Typically, the camp includes individuals dressed in the clothing of the period, with no modern cooking or sleeping facilities. ' Cooking is done over an open fire, and the campers sleep in teepees or other can-

A SPORTING CHANCE — Peter Troncone's choice of weapons, in this case a .50 caliber flintlock Pennsylvania Long Rifle, ties into America's past and helps him and other members of the New Jersey Muzzle Loaders Association keep alive a bit of the country's past. (Photo by Jackie Pollack) vass shelters, such as the lean-to or wall tent, that are appropriate to the period. Many camps have "dog soldiers" whose job it is to make sure that no one spoils the atmosphere by openly displaying modern equipment like coolers, flashlights and the like. Dog soldiers also make sure that clothing is period authentic. "You begin to appreciate what we have these days," Troncone said, "when you try to move about with no artificial light or cook a turkey over 1 an open flame." Troncone's orgaPeter Troncone nization is growing rapidly. He said the Muzzle Loaders sport a membership of more than 900 in New Jersey. Typically, group members sign up for an enactment camp in the state or elsewhere in the Northeast several times a year. Last month, the group spent a week at Camp Lewis in Rockaway. Next month, they'll be camped at the Whistle Stop outside of Ringoes. Visitors to these sites see a vintage camp the way it looked, back in the early period of our nation's history. On days when "modern" visitors are allowed, there are usually demonstrations on how crafts

and clothing were fashioned and the way guns were made. Besides shooting competitions, campers also compete in tomahawk- and knife-throwing, making fire with flint and steel, and other skills common to early frontiersmen. In the evenings, someone usually brings out a guitar or fiddle for campfire entertainment. Women and children are welcome, and re-enactors are proud of the fact that their pastime brings families closer together. "Not every activity is centered around guns," Troncone said. "We have members who don't even shoot. They just enjoy the prospect of living life the way our forefathers did." Camp enactments aren't the only activity of the Muzzle Loaders. Often, members are called on to lecture at Boy Scout meetings and school groups. In addition, the group occasionally sponsors fund-raisers to support the needy. A favorite activity is to hold a competitive target shooting match during the holidays to raise money for food. "The opportunity to 'live history,' " Troncone said, "is what got me interested in the Muzzle Loaders. At every sportsman or wildlife show, we'll sponsor a booth to communicate to outdoorsmen what we're all about. That's where we attract new members. We're still looking to grow."

When you can count among your best salespeople, people who don't even work for you, then you know you've got a pretty special thing going. Such is the case with Saturn. There are countless stories out there of Saturn owners recommending cars to friends, neighbors and family members; of customers who volunteer to talk at auto shows and civic groups. Are these people nuts? No, they're all just very, very satisfied, that's all. Hope to see you soon.
