PERTH AMBOY - 4 year old Lexani Rodriguez along with her mom and other family members handed out pink rib-bons to all in attendance at the 10/8/14 City Council Meeting. Lexani created these ribbons when she heard that one of her teacher’s grandmother was suffering with breast cancer. Lexi’s mom explained that Lexi was so saddened by this she wanted to bring her teach-er’s grandmother home with her. She made the pink ribbons hoping that everyone who re-ceived one would wear them in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

According to Police Chief Benjamin Ruiz, who was on the scene: “Two people were walking down the trail near the tracks on Washington Street when they saw a body. They flagged down a police car stating that someone was in need of assistance and took the officer in the back. They took the Officer to the railroad tracks and where they found a deceased Hispanic male.” Ruiz continued, “There is an investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. There should be a statement shortly from that department.” Ruiz stated that this was defi-nitely a homicide. Further de-tails will follow.

If It’s Local - It’s Here! Residents Question

Transparency When Crimes are Committed and the Pres-ence of City

Employees at Meetings

PERTH AMBOY - At the 10/8/14 City Council Meet-ing some residents were still not happy that serious crimes have been committed in Perth Amboy and were not reported in the papers. Some individuals went as far as accusing some papers as being told what to put in the papers by the police. One of incidents that a resident gave as an example was the incident that report-edly happened in August at or near the Z-Bar. The per-son complaining about the incident not being reported in the paper was reminded later that a weekly paper did indeed report this incident. Another point of conten-tion was the presence of city employees at meetings. It was questioned whether or not they are paid overtime to be there. Former Councilman and retired Police Officer Ken Balut said, “You have three police officers at this meet-ing. I live at the Budapest Section and there’s only one police officer over there. Someone tried to break into my house. It is the same game plan that Joe Vas had. The crime is not reported. Police get information from the public. You have extra patrols here but not on the street.” Balut addressed the Coun-cil and said, “You’re sup-posed to help with OPRA requests - not hinder them. You had classes on OPRA requests and ethics classes.” Resident Reinaldo Aviles came up to speak to sup-port city employees being at meetings. “I like that city employees are here to an-swer questions that you (the council, the lawyer, or busi-ness administrator) cant’ an-swer, especially at the cau-cus meetings, but I’m also concerned about crime in the court systems. One judge, in my opinion is running a debtor’s prison. If someone comes before him and they don’t have the money to pay the fine, he sends them to jail. He discourages pay-ment plans that he sets.” Councilman Kenneth Gon-

zalez says, “Most of the cases heard in court are not criminal. We need to look into this.” Aviles continued, “Crime in the street is harder to control because it already has hap-pened before the cops get there. Cops can’t be every-where, but the court is not a revenue stream.” Gregory Pabon who is also a Police Chaplain agreed with Aviles that the directors be-ing at the meeting are impor-tant. “Are they being paid to be here? I don’t know. I walk my dog every night in the Budapest section and I

haven’t heard about any of these incidents, but I’m not saying they didn’t happen.” Business Administrator Jil-lian Barrick told those in at-tendance that the City employ-ees are not paid overtime when they attend meetings.” Police Chief Benjamin Ruiz said, “There is information about crimes that is posted on Nixle and we also provide press releases to the papers and they can pick and choose what they want. Community Events and road closures are some of the other items report-ed on Nixle.”

For Every Action There is An Equal and Opposite ReactionIt Rocks the Core: The Sayreville Scandal

The Innocent Caught in the FalloutThe Superintendent of the Sayreville School System Dr. Richard Labbe and the Sayre-ville Board of Education prob-ably had to make the most difficult decisions during their time in office. I know they along with the parents, resi-dents, students and the school community would never have imagined that the town would have been thrust into such an unfavorable and unimaginable spotlight due to the behavior and irresponsibility of a small minority. The whole country has been made aware of the allegations against some of the Sayreville Upperclassmen High School football players against some of the freshman players. I will not go into the details of the charges because they have been highly reported and those players that have been accused of the extreme hazing crimes have been barred from return-ing to school. When push came to shove, Superintendent Labbe and the Sayreville Board of Education knew they were in-between a rock and a hard place. They knew emotions were going to run high on both sides. The toughest part of the decision was to suspend the football season for this year and pos-sibly the next year. They knew that students who had noth-ing at all to do with this were going to be deeply hurt. In retrospect, we hope that this incident may be a deterrent to others. They will learn the consequences of the harm they do to others is not only going to have an effect on the vic-tims or the perpetrators, but on their fellow students as well. This includes not only those involved in sports, but the

whole town as well. We do know about Assistant Football Coach Charles Gar-cia was arrested for possession of steroids. Now there is an even more difficult decision to be made about the coach-ing staff. We don’t know the role the coaches played or not, but something fell through the cracks where there was not proper supervision. This is a difficult subject and either way you look at it, it is a lose-lose situation. A lot of people got hurt, but the bottom line is the ones who got hurt the most are the victims. If there was not the first initial al-leged horrendous actions com-mitted by a few, then a huge hurt suffered would not have come to fruition. This is a domino effect which affected the whole town in the worst possible way. This is the worst consequence that could ever happen. Nationwide the town of Sayreville New Jer-sey has suffered a black mark. Now vigils for the victims have been taking place in the town which is a very good thing for a healing process, but it’s going to take a very long time. We are praying for all the students, parents and the town as a whole. As you well know, we spend a lot of time talking about the Perth Amboy School System, especially the Board of Edu-cation Members, the Super-intendent and their problems. But compared to what future decisions the Sayreville Board of Education and their Super-intendent will be dealing with in reference to this scandal makes Perth Amboy’s prob-lems miniscule. C.M.

Vote NO on Bail Reform

That proposed change to the NJ Constitution should be re-jected as an attack on people’s rights. It would allow un-elected judges to keep people in jail without bail. It violates the Eighth Amendment of the Bill of Rights and Paragraphs

11 and 12 of Article I of the NJ Constitution. Passage of this law would work like “preven-tive detention” where a person is arrested and kept in jail in-definitely, like in the regime of Louis XIV before the French Revolution. To avoid the problems in the present system you only have to allow a bail of $1 for various

offenses. Who is really behind this proposal? It’s certainly not the result of “Initiative and Referendum”. It would be better to place “Initiative and Referendum’ on the ballot to allow more democracy (as in most other states).

Domestic Violence and

the NFL Domestic violence is a ter-rible thing. It comes in many forms and has been around, I guess, since man, (and wom-an), has walked the earth. A lot of attention has been paid to this subject, as it should be, and we have seen the emer-gence of domestic violence re-sponse teams nationwide. It seems as though a lot of at-tention has been paid of late to the NFL. Let’s take the case of Ray Rice. Personally, I could care less about Ray Rice, he doesn’t put food on my table. But it’s the principle of this whole thing. He hasn’t been

convicted of anything yet, but his livelihood has been taken away. He has been suspended because of a video tape of him knocking out his then fiancée, (now wife). This was due to the uproar that occurred when the video tape was released to the public. All well and good, but if you are going to do this to him, then will you also do the same for all. If a sitting judge is accused of domestic violence will they be removed from the bench and disbarred? Will the politician be removed from office and forbidden from holding office again, (yea right). How about the electri-cian, police officer, plumber, fireman, doctor, etcetera, et-cetera. After all, “what’s good for the goose is good for the

gander”, is it not? There are some that will say, “Oh, that’s different”. Well, I’m sure it isn’t to the woman on the receiving end of the blows. It hurts just as much if the guy doing the punching is a NFL star or the guy selling hotdogs at the game. Hmmm, I wonder if Sabrett will refuse to let him sell their hotdogs. My point is, let the law run its course. If convicted let him do the time or whatever the sentence might be. Let’s not succumb to the media induced mob mentality. After he’s done his time maybe he should be made to wear a purple uniform for a season, but let the man earn a living.

Duarte The monument to Juan Pablo Duarte on Sadowski Pkwy. Is quite impressive with its im-posing pillars that look like the gates of paradise that could

be used as part of the scenery for some dinner theater bibli-cal musical. Duarte is revered in the Dominican Republic for the many good things he did. He was a great man. However

what did he do for Perth Am-boy that requires this shrine that replaced the lovely gaze-bo that was there.

Officials Absent

First and foremost I would like to thank all of the local elected government officials for supporting the youth of this great city. Some are so proud to be from Perth Amboy. These are the future leaders of our great city. Truth be known, none of these elected officials are sup-

porting these youth. They are there for reopening of restau-rants and ice cream shops. However, they are not there for some of the youths that are so proud of their home town and go above and beyond to support and tell the story of their home town. I know of a child went above and beyond. Invitations given and not one of our elected officials attended in support

of this adolescent, (Oh, and I was busy that day) not that the child had given the lecture four times! Still all elected of-ficials were a no show, what does this say about our elected officials, and their support of the future leaders; not much in my opinion. The youth of the future of this great city this can not be denied!

Response to Mayor Wilda Diaz LetterDear Perth Amboy, This is my direct response to the open letter addressed to Perth Amboy parents by Mayor Wilda Diaz, which was published by The Homes News Tribune on October 9, 2014, in an effort to influ-ence the upcoming November 4, 2014 municipal election (City Council and Board of Education), openly question-ing the actions of the current board members in relation to the building of a new high school. Please be advised that as President of the Perth Am-boy Board of Education, I am compelled to accurately set forth the recent developments regarding the construction of a new high school. This is my personal response and not a statement or opinion of other members of the Board. It is Mayor Diaz who has failed to take leadership in the current matter, and who chooses to misguide and mis-inform the parents of Perth Amboy with her letter. She cites she has had ongoing con-versations with the Board of Education during the past two years. However, neither I nor other members of the pres-ent Board were parties to any conversations the Mayor has had with the State of New Jer-sey concerning the new high school. Mayor Diaz’ meet-ings were with our previous superintendent, a prior board president, and members of the past Board. As of this date, Mayor Diaz has made no ef-forts to communicate with me, the board president, or other current Board leader-ship on the topic of a new high school. There have been no phone calls, emails or schedul-ing of meetings directly with the current board to address the critical issues that will un-doubtedly impact the entire community of Perth Amboy. Mr. Israel Varela, Chair of Buildings and Grounds Com-mittee, and Mr. Samuel Le-breault, Board Liaison to the City of Perth Amboy, have also not been contacted by Mayor Diaz. The Board of Education’s first indication of the ongoing discussions between the City/Mayor Diaz and the New Jer-sey School Development Au-thority (NJSDA) was the letter we received on September 9, 2014 from Charles McKenna, Chief Executive Officer of NJSDA. Prior to that date, there have been no discussions by any State or City officials with the current Board as to any new developments with regard to the funding of a new high school. Unfortunately, Mayor Diaz has chosen to use a public

platform to criticize and cre-ate an adversarial, rather than a collaborative, relationship with elected officials in charge of our school district. Mayor Diaz should demonstrate her leadership by making every effort in encouraging an ongo-ing and positive dialogue be-tween the City and the Board, especially when our children’s future is at stake. The Board of Education is and has been aware of the pressing need for a new high school. Our cur-rent high school is severely overcrowded, as are our mid-dle and elementary schools. Overcrowding and a high stu-dent to teacher ratio negatively impacts learning and instruc-tion. Consequently, this is re-flected in our graduation rates and standardized test scores. The goal is to build a state of the art high school that will be inspiring, challenging, and will address the needs of our growing diverse school popu-lation. A positive learning environment must connect the school to the community. In 2004, the Board of Edu-cation lost the opportunity to build a new high school on the proposed 15.3 acre Delaney Home Site. Unfortunately, as a result of the delay of the decision made by the Board at that time, the State withdrew the funding set aside for Perth Amboy. Consequently, the Delaney Site has been signifi-cantly reduced. The site cur-rently consists of only 11.7 acres due to the construction of affordable housing on 3.6 acres of the previous site. Fortunately, Perth Amboy is being given another oppor-tunity by the NJSDA to fund a new high school. However, a decision of this magnitude cannot be made with haste. As reported at the September 23 board meeting, the NJSDA letter was immediately ad-dressed by me and Business Administrator Derek Jess. Subsequently, a meeting was scheduled for October 2nd. At that meeting the NJSDA ac-knowledged Perth Amboy was a top priority needs district and informed the Board that the State is allocating $190 million for the construction of a new high school. At the meeting with Mr. McKenna, our goal was to address the time constraints placed on the Board in the selection of a site. As a result of this meeting, all parties involved agreed a thirty day time limit would not allow sufficient time to research and review all viable options, and more importantly allow for public discussions on the sub-ject. The Board was granted an extension of six months by the NJSDA. The Perth Amboy

Housing Authority has also conceded to the extension of time to allow the Board to act with due diligence. In the short time since our meeting with the NJSDA, I have met with the Housing Au-thority and toured the Delaney site along with the interim su-perintendent, the principal of the high school and additional Board members. Moreover, the environmental consul-tant contracted by the Board will be presenting the results of his study of all viable op-tions. Immediately thereafter, a meeting will be scheduled so presentations can be made to the community for input. All Board meetings are public, and the agenda is posted prior to each meeting. I encourage parents and community mem-bers to attend and participate in this extremely important and exciting process. Board meetings are the appropriate venue for all discussions con-cerning this project. It is criti-cal for parents, taxpayers, and the entire community to hear all sides, so they can assist the Board in making the best deci-sion for our children. At this time, the Perth Am-boy community should be assured that the City is in no danger of losing the funding from the NJSDA. I feel that the Delaney site is a strong consideration, but the remain-ing 11.7 acres fall short of the need to accommodate our rap-idly growing population. Trust that I, as Board Presi-dent, will make decisions based on a thorough investiga-tion of all options, with integ-rity and with the best interest of the children of the City of Perth Amboy. I encourage Mayor Diaz to communicate directly with me, the Board, and all stakeholders, in an ef-fort to provide our children with the best possible high school. Using public forums, such as her “open” letter, is counterproductive to making a dream of a new high school a reality. Moving forward, I welcome the opportunity to meet with Mayor Diaz to discuss this im-portant project.

Respectfully submitted,

Obdulia Gonzalez

The Truth About The Perth Amboy Board Of Education

“The Board of Education’s Lack Of Action And Complete Abdication of Authority Astounds Me.”

PERTH AMBOY - Dear Perth Amboy Parents: The Perth Amboy Board of Education has been offered an unprecedented opportunity to build a much needed and much desired high school for our children and our teach-ers to enjoy. In a letter dated September 9, 2014, the New Jersey School Development Authority (NJSDA) wrote to the Board of Education telling them that they are prepared to make a $190 million invest-ment in a new state-of-the-art high school, but time is of the essence. The Board of Educa-tion must act now. Otherwise, they will allow the only prop-erty that the SDA identified suitable to slip through their fingers and be sold to a private developer. For the past two years the NJSDA has met with school officials, members of the Board of Education, City of-ficials and I, Mayor Wilda Diaz to discuss the possibil-ity of fully financing the con-struction of a new high school. They identified every possible parcel of land. After a thor-ough review of all possibili-ties, the NJSDA identified the property that is known as the Delaney Homes as the only property within the City that is suitable for the construction of the new high school. The Delaney Homes property is owned by the Perth Amboy Housing Authority. Leading up to this point, the Housing Authority took steps to sell the property to a private developer for purposes of commercial development and is consider-ing their options. This is why the NJSDA wrote their letter to the Board of Education ex-plaining the urgency of the sit-uation and asking them to take immediate action to acquire the property and stop it from being sold to private interests. TODAY marks the 30th day

since the NJSDA sent notice to the Perth Amboy Board of Ed-ucation. The Board of Educa-tion has yet to take or schedule any public action that would allow our community to learn about and discuss the NJS-DA’s proposal. The Board of Education’s lack of action and complete abdication of author-ity astounds me. How do they allow 30 days to pass without holding a special session so that the public has the oppor-tunity to learn about the details of the NJSDA’s proposal? Instead, Board President, Vice President, Finance Chair, Superintendent and School Business Administrator met privately, behind closed doors with the NJSDA on October 2. Even after that private meeting held one week ago they still have yet to schedule a public meeting. I believe in a government that functions openly and with transparency. I believe that the public should have a say in the future of our City and in the future of our children. I be-lieve that our students and our teachers deserve this opportu-nity. I call on the entire Board of Education to immediately schedule a special public ses-sion and invite the NJSDA to make a presentation to our en-tire community. The Board of Education was elected to fulfill a responsibil-ity to our community. It is time for them to step up and be leaders. I urge them to sched-ule a public hearing for the NJSDA to present their pro-posal and allow the public to comment. After that process, they should demonstrate lead-ership and take a vote. Above all else, they should not let this opportunity pass us by.

Sincerely,Wilda Diaz, MayorCity of Perth Amboy

City of Perth Amboy, NJ Celebrated National Walk to School Day on October 8, 2014

PERTH AMBOY – Mayor Wilda Diaz and the Perth Amboy Police Department along with the Anthony V. Ceres Elementary School [445 State Street] in Perth Amboy joined schools across the nation to celebrate National Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 8th at 8:00 a.m. Students and parents walking to school were joined by Mayor Wilda Diaz, members of the Perth Amboy Police Department [Traffic Bureau], Fire Department, the Office of Recreation and community leaders. A table with information was set-up in front of the school with materials about “SAFE ROUTES,” other safety handouts and goody bags for students. City officials greeted children and parents as they walked to school. Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of healthy peer relationships among chil-dren, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community. For additional information, please visit these websites: Walk to School Day in the USA www.walkbiketoschool.org; National Center for Safe Routes to School www.saferoutesinfo.org; International Walk to School Day www.iwalktoschool.orgAbout International Walk to School Day• Walk to School Day was established in the United States in 1997 by the Partnership for a Walkable America. Canada and Great Britain already had walk to school programs in place. In 2000, these three countries joined together to create International Walk to School Day. • In May 2006, the National Center for Safe Routes to School was established to assist communities in enabling and encouraging children to safely walk and bike to school. • The National Center for Safe Routes to School serves as the national coordinating agency for Walk to School activities in the United States.•Walk to School Day began as a simple idea – children and parents, school and local officials walking to school together on a designated day. It is an energizing event, reminding everyone of the simple joy of walking to school, the health benefits of regular daily activity, and the need for safe places to walk and bike. Schools focus on health, safety, physical activity and concern for the environment.• Organizations supporting International Walk to School Day in the United States include America Walks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Highway Administration, the Institute of Transportation Engineers, the National Center for Safe Routes to School, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Safe Kids Worldwide, and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.

Second Visit by Dominican Republic Secretary Of State To The Jewish Renaissance

Medical Center

Movie Review: Gone Girl

PERTH AMBOY - The Perth Amboy Democratic Organization had a hot dog rally at their headquarters on 466 Amboy Avenue on Sat-urday, October 11, 2014 for support of 2014 Democratic Candidates in the upcoming election.

Old Fashion Hot Dog Rally *Photo by Katherine Massopust

Press Release 9/29/14PERTH AMBOY- Ramiro Es-pino, Dominican Republic’s Secretary of State, met with Dr. Alan Goldsmith, President and Founder of the Jewish Re-naissance Family of Organiza-tions, as follow-up to previous talks on future collaborations from their meeting in April 2014. The roundtable collo-quy was on the construction for a community health center in Samana, Dominican Re-public. Accompanied by Ms. Lilliam Banner, Consultant of the Council for Dominican Communities Abroad in New Jersey, the parties examined the preliminary partnership of CONDEX, a public institu-tion that Mr. Espino currently serves as Vice President and the Jewish Renaissance Foun-dation, and how the entities would work together in the plan and design of a two story health center in Samana. The Jewish Renaissance’s feder-ally qualified health center (FQHC) in Perth Amboy, New Jersey would serve as the evi-dence based model for the new facility. The donated land of the pro-posed construction project is estimated to be 15,000 -20,000 sq. ft. facility and solely geared for outpatient care,

and dentistry all in preventa-tive services. The visit also included robust discussion on the overall design of the facil-ity that would serve as arche-type for health centers in the Dominican Republic and be-yond. The Jewish Renaissance Foundation and the Jewish Re-naissance Medical Center has had meaningful and consider-able experience in overseas operations that include Cuba, Hungary, Israel, Jamaica and the Ukraine. Its most recent is the creation of the Jewish Re-naissance School of Tabarre, a medical center and school to 100 students just outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. With the JRMC’s experience and expertise operating as the larg-est FQHC’s in New Jersey, the partnership would offer CON-DEX great insight and direc-tion to ensure network of care is available to medically un-derserved areas of the country and provide greater access to primary and preventive servic-es for the entire family rather than an emergency room.The meeting concluded with clear next steps in revisions to the existing drawings as well as operational details to serve as an addendum to enhance the new plans.

By: Anton Massopust III“Whatever they found, we must assume it’s extremely bad.” What if your life was torn to pieces by the mysterious dis-appearance of your wife and everyone expects that you did it? In brief, that is what the mov-ie, “Gone Girl” is about. But you would be wrong. “Gone Girl” is a complicated thriller. Ben Affleck plays a writer Nick Dunne whose life slowly unravels. The movie is told in flashback as he tries to uncover the disappearance of his wife. As everyone turns against him, his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) vanishes under mysteri-ous circ*mstances. The police suspect murder, but is there something more going on here? We find out the reasons their marriage falls apart and what

leads up to this marriage’s de-struction. “Gone Girl” has many fine performances and from unex-pected actors. Neil Patrick Harris plays a former lover of Amy’s (Desi Collings). Tanner Bolt (Ty-ler Perry) is the lawyer who wins the unwinable cases. Of course, Ben Affleck and Rosa-mund Pike were excellent as the married couple. Their per-formances are believable and convincing. You ride this wild ride with them in this very re-alistic story. What’s scary about “Gone Girl” is you keep thinking about this movie long after the closing credits fall across the screen. I very rarely think that way. This is the “undate” movie. If you’re wondering what that means go see “Gone Girl.”

Novena to St. Rita

O holy protectress of those who art in greatest need, thou who shineth as a star of hope in the midst of dark-ness, blessed Saint Rita, bright mirror of God’s grace, in pa-tience and fortitude thou art a model of all the states in life. I unite my will with the will of God through the merits of my Savior Jesus Christ, and in particular through his pa-tient wearing of the crown of thorns, which with tender devotion thou didst daily con-template. Through the merits of the holy Virgin Mary and thine own graces and virtues, I ask thee to obtain my earnest petition, provided it be for the greater glory of God and my own sanctification. Guide and purify my intention, O holy protectress and advocate, so that I may obtain the pardon of all my sins and the grace to persevere daily, as thou didst in walking with courage, gen-erosity, and fidelity down the path of life. (Mention your re-quest.) Saint Rita, advocate of the im-possible, pray for us. Saint Rita, advocate of the helpless, pray for us. Recite the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be three times each.
