The Blue Devils jumped out to a 5-1 lead at the end of the first half and never looked back. Commenting on the victory, senior attackman Steve Kassakian said, "I thought that we played very well as a team against Montville. The defense as well as the offense did a great job of keeping Montville from any scoring op-portunities. Now we should be able to focus more of our effort to the state tournament. I am very pleased with the way that we are playing." In the first quarter, the Blue Devils took a one goal lead after Mike Baly won his faceoff and sprinted downfield. Baly was able to dump the ball off to senior Scotty Mann who rolled off his defender and fired a shot past the Montville goalie. Senior Bryan Gates made the score 2- 0 when he converted a pass from senior Kevin Mansfield to the back of the net. With Baly winning six out of the seven faceoffs, the Blue Devil offense was able to hold the ball which resulted in goals by Mansfield and Mann. The solid Blue Devil defense, con-sisting of seniors Brenden Hickey, Dan Todd, Steve Abeles and junior Matt Krug, were successful in keeping the Montville attack at bay. By the end of the first quarter, the Blue Devils had earned a comfortable 4-0 lead. "In the first quarter the offense was able to settle down and run a lot of settled plays thanks to Baly's excellent job on faceoffs. I think our time of possession on offense was the main reason we were able to score four goals. The defense also did a great job of shutting them down," Mansfield said. In the second quarter, the Blue Dev-ils continued to hold the ball on of-fense. Four minutes into the second quarter, Baly ran an isolation play, drawing two Montville defenders. Af-ter passing the ball off to Mann, Baly sneaked around the goal and scored the fifth goal of the game. With five minutes remaining in the second quarter, Hickey was penalized for slashing. Montville took advantage of their man-up situation and scored to make it 5-1. "We played an excellent first half. Because the offense had a very high TOP (time of possession), the whole team was able to calm down and play solid la-crosse," responded Baly. In the third quarter, the Montville defense fell victim to the prolific scoring capability of the Blue Devils. First it was junior Mike Stotler who faked out two defensemen and peppered the Montville goalie with an accurate bounce shot. Next, Mansfield assisted Kassakian to make the score 7-1. Todd, Krug and Hickey provided bone crushing body checks as Abeles saved six of his 12 saves in the third quarter. During the final quarter of the game, the Blue Devil offense pumped in three more goals to make the score 10-2. This en-abled Westfield to rotate some of the younger defensemen in the game. Sopho-mores Pat Touhey and Joey Saunders and freshman Evan Molloy stepped up and played with determination as the game ended in Westfield's favor, 10-5. Westfield 4 1 2 3 10 Montville 0 1 0 4 05 DIAMOND AND FLEDER TAKE FIRST Blue Devil Boys Capture County Tennis Crown Blue Devils' Jeff Diamond and Sam Fleder weathered the storms and came up with titles in their respective classes as the Westfield High School boys' ten-nis team narrowly edged Summit, 68-66, to capture the team title at the Union County Tennis Tournament held at Hub Stine Field in Plainfield on May 13. Diamond, seeded second at second singles, began his long trip to the title by crushing Mike Lombardo of Union, 6-1, 6-1, back on April 30 when the tourna-ment started. His next conquest was over seventh-seeded Brett O'Malley of Cranford, 6-0, 6-0. Then the rains began. In the semifinals, Diamond rolled over third-seeded Dennis Burachinsky of Ora-tory, 6-3, 6-2. The title belonged to Dia-mond when he knocked off fifth-seeded Chris Saladores of Elizabeth in the fi-nals, 6-3, 6-2. Fleder, also seeded-second, began his climb to the third singles championship by nailing Konrad Konin of Linden in the preliminary round, then by dumping Dan Delloiacono of Dayton in the quarterfinals. Between rain storms, Fleder frustrated Kevin O'Donnell of Cranford, 4-6, 6-1, 6-0, in the semifinals and finally finished the job by dethroning first-seeded Miles Moriarty of Summit, 6-3, 2-6, 6-3. Raider Mike Bostwick battled back from his semifinal defeat to Alex Taunean of Elizabeth to capture third place with a victory over Justin Jackson of Plainfield at first singles. Bostwick, who was seeded second, blanked Charles Santanna of Roselle Park, 6-0, 6-0, in the opening round and edged Todd Kraft of New Providence, 6-3, 6-4, in the quarterfinals. Blue Devils Peter Lau and Josh War-ren at first doubles dropped their third-place consolation round to Derrick Brooks and Conor Leddy of Cranford, 0-6, 6-2, 4-6. Also, Raiders Paul Swedlund and Shawn Lafkowitz at second doubles fell to Alok Sathaye and Sanjay Varna of Governor Livingston, 5-7, 2-6, in the third-place consolations.

Linda M. Lies Secretary to the Zoning Board of Adjustment Township of Scotch Plains 1 T - 5/21/98, The Times Fee: $47.94 Cougars Roar Loudly; Oust Devils From UCT By DAVID B. CORBIN Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times All good things must come to an end and that is what happened to the four-time defending Union County Champion Westfield High School boys' baseball team when the No. 1-ranked Cranford Cougars put out the Devils' fire, 10-0, in the quarterfinals of that tournament in Cranford on May 13. Cougar pitcher Kevin Feeley tossed a five inning no-hitter. The first two innings were nearly flaw-less for Feeley as he retired every Blue Devil batter except Gabe Perez who reached first on an error in the second inning. Unfortunately, for Perez, Feeley extinguished any chance of a Devils' fire when he picked off Perez. Bob Haber hit a two-run single to sharpen the claws as the Cougars took a vicious five-run swipe at the Blue Devils in the bottom of the second inning. Feeley got Blue Devil Dave Koye and Grian Flynn to ground out to second, then struck out Brandon Doerr for the third out in the top of the third. The Cougars clawed another two runs in the bottom of the third. Brian Weingart drew a walk and was replaced by cour-tesy runner Joe McComb who later stole second. Tim Meyer bounced a grounder back to the mound where he was thrown out at first. When Devil pitcher Bob Baykowski threw a pitch into the dirt, McComb alertly sped to third. Pat Mahrer ground out to second for the second out and Haber stepped to the plate and was eventually walked. With runners on first and third, Bill Harnett sliced a single to right to drive in McComb and Haber. Blue Devil Phil Orsini grounded to third for the first out in the top of the fourth. Don Seeley grounded out to short and Lamont Turner went down on strikes. The Cougars pounced again in the bottom of the fourth. After Chris Baran grounded out to Brandon Doerr at third, Weingart was, once again, walked. McComb replaced Weingart, then Meyer drew a base-on-balls. Mahrer stepped up and skid a single to right, allowing McComb to score and Meyer to skip to third. A throw to second to catch a steal-ing Mahrer sailed into short center field and Meyer trotted home with the Cougar's ninth run. Mahrer moved to third, then later was awarded a free trip home when Baykowski was called for a balk. Feeley enjoyed the luxury of facing no more than three Blue Devils in any given inning until the fifth. The Blue Devils needed to score at least one run or the game would be halted based on a 10-run rule. Perez led off and grounded out to second. Freisen reached first safely on an error by the left fielder. Baykowski hit a grounder which was mishandled by the second baseman and the Blue Devils had runners on first and second with one out. Feeley got the next Blue Devil to fly out to right, then struck out the final batter to claim the victory. It took the top-ranked team in the state to unseat Westfield from its four-year reign as the Cougars advanced to play Union High School in the semifinals. The Blue Devils slipped to 12-7 as the Cougars upped their record to 14-0. Westfield 000 00 00 Cranford 052 3x 10 From Pennsylvania and New York and towns throughout New Jersey, they will be coming this weekend for the chance to compete with some of the best soccer teams and walk away with the first place trophy in the 18th annual Westfield Cup. Nearly 1,700 players ranging in age from 8 to 19 as well as their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and coaches will be flooding into Westfield for the three-day event. The tournament kicks off this Saturday, May 23, as 100 teams vied for the coveted first place gold cups in the 10 different divisions for boys and girls. On 15 fields throughout the town and in neighboring Cranford the players will be putting out their all trying to be proclaimed the best in their individual divisions. From the opening whistle at 9 a.m. when the dreams of victory accompany each team onto the fields until the final awarding of the 10 first-place trophies on Monday afternoon, the players will be displaying some of the best soccer around. The 1998 edition of the cup contains one of the largest fields ever with each of the five age divisions for both boys and girls offering tough competition. Bob Kivetz and Bob Meglaughlin, who co-chaired the event last year and have returned, attribute the impressive field of teams to the solid reputation the Westfield tournament enjoys in the na-tional soccer community. "The quality of the games and the professionalism of the operation has at-tracted attention far beyond New Jersey, enabling us to recruit teams from several other states," said Kivetz. Added Meglaughlin, "Memorial Day weekend is one of the two most popular times for soccer tournaments through-out the country. Towns across the nation host games. It is really a point of special pride that on such a busy soccer week-end, the Westfield Cup is able to get so many teams." Unlike many other tournaments. the Westfield Cup has three paid referees for each game, with one handling the field action and two acting as linesmen. Each field also has a clearly identifiable man-ager who is available to deal with any problems or emergencies. The Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad also will also be on standby to handle any injuries. The Westfield Cup employs the World Cup structure, having teams play a round robin in each division on Satur-day and Sunday with points awarded for a win or a tie. The field is narrowed to the two best teams and they face each other in the championship games on Monday. The Westfield Cup includes a core committee of 20 who have been work-ing since January to ensure the tourna-ment is a success. As the competition begins Saturday, the ranks of the vol-unteers will swell considerably as moth-ers, fathers and friends donate their time to make the cup the best possible. J&M Markets is once again providing the catering the tournament. The hundreds of games comprising the competition will be staged. Edison Intermediate School will serve as head-quarters where results of all games will be posted and standings within each di-vision listed.

Optimist Club Announces Annual Benefit Raffle Eighth Grade Laxers Advance To Semifinals of Tournament Westfield's eighth grade lacrosse team advanced to the semifinal round of the annual Franklin Lakes Invitational La-crosse Tournament this past Sunday be-fore losing, 2-0, to perennial powerhouse Ridgewood. The Blue Devil stickmen tied one Franklin Lakes team and then beat Kinnelon and the other Franklin Lakes squad in the preliminary morning rounds, gaining two shutouts in the process, be-fore bowing out in the afternoon tourna-ment semifinals. Tournament players for Westfield were Richard Brautigam, Richie Harris, Charlie Hely, Sean O'Neill, Trevor Putnoky, Anthony Yudd, Tripp Bartlett, Mike Charney, Mike Debrossy, James Donovan, Greg Elliott, Chris Preisen, Duffy Lau, Tim Mansfield, Neil Owens, Chris Palentchar, Mike Panza, Ethan Powell, Kevin Riley and Dan Seeger. The team's strong play in the tourna- ment followed a 8-2 Saturday morning loss to Mountain Lakes at Tamaques Elementary School in the return match of a home-and-home series abating the Lak-ers. This day, the Devils' defense played strong and tight through much of the contest against the faster Lakers. Kevin Riley made a host of great saves in goal. But the offense had trouble pen-etrating the opponent's swarming de-fense and had the bad luck to see several good shots clang of the cross bar. Mike Charney netted Westfield's only two talleys, one on an assist Mom Charlie Hely. Still, they kept things close until the end, when a flurry of giveaways resulted in three Laker goals for the final margin. Killer Bees Shut Door On Bridgewater, 2-0 The top-flighted Westfield Killer Bees beat the Bridgewater Firecrackers, 2-0, in Bridgewater to improve their second place record to 5-2-1. The Westfield squad dominated the exciting and fast-paced against a tough Bridgewater team that had beaten the Bees three times in the last two years. It was the Bees fourth shutout of the season and the team has only surrendered six goals while scoring 18 times. The Bees peppered the Firecrackers repeatedly in the fires quarter on shots by the front line of Stephanie Bridgeman, Melissa Rosen and Danielle Fried but the Bridgewater defense and keeper stiff-ened at the right times. Bridgewater also had some opportuni-ties in the quarter but were turned away by excellent defense played by left full-back Emily MacNeil, stopper Gio Palatucci and halfbacks henna Federgreen and Lauren Purdy. The second quarter continued with fierce play on both sides of the ball but the Killer Bees continued to force the action in front of the opposition's goal. Forwards Caroline Cariste and Purdy kept the ball in play which resulted in a pass by Purdy to Ali Carter who tipped it into the net for a 1-0 half time lead. The second half saw continued defen-sive strength by the Bees as fullback Justine Palme, Amanda Dickson and center halfback Mary Kate Maher turned back the Bridgewater advances. Annie Onishi and Fried also played well at stopper. The highlight of the second half came when Purdy, from the right wing, took a pass up the sideline and crossed it per-fectly to striker Fried, who out raced one defender to the ball before faking out the sweeper and drilling a shot to the upper left comer of the net. The Bees Keeper, Jessie Elkoury, played solidly while the defense bol-stered by Palatucci and MacNeil out hustled the Firecrackers. Hanna Burke, playing at several different positions, had her best game of the season. The Killer Bees need to win their last two games in order to capture the top-flight trophy. Red Fireballs Play Jays in Tee Ball The Red Fireballs (Team No. 5) and the Blue Jays (Team No. 8) of the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Youth Baseball Association Tee Ball Division faced off against each other in a well played game on May 16. Players on both teams made several outstanding plays in the field and swung potent bats. Offensively, the Red Fireballs contin-ued to hit the ball hard as they have all season long. James Wheeler drove the ball hard all three times he was up as he collected two doubles and a single while driving in three runs. Blake Van Buskirk and Kevin Regan were each a perfect 3-for-3 on the day with two singles and a double. Joseph Del Prete and Chris Bauer each had three RBIs on a single and a double. Laura Degnan, Becca Kaplan and Kelly Cianciotta were each 3-for-3 on the day. Jennifer DiGiuseppe drove in three runs on two base hits while Ricky Madurski picked up three RBIs on a 2- for-3 day. Matt Graziano hit the ball well all game long and picked up three RBIs in the process. Defensively, the Fireballs were sharp. Regan did a superb job at third base, collecting two putouts and knocking down several shots. Del Prete had a solid game at shortstop while Wheeler and Degnan each turned in a steady game at second base. DiGiuseppe, Cianciotta and Bauer all did an excellent job in sharing the duties on the pitching mound. The Fireballs were aggressive on the base paths as they displayed outstanding base running skills. Van Buskirk, Regan, DiGiuseppe, and Cianciotta all scored three times. Degnan, Madurski, Graziano and Wheeler scored twice while Kaplan and Del Prete crossed the plate once. Red Dragons Face Teal Sharks in Soccer The Red Dragons (Team No. 6) of the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Soccer Associa-tion First Grade Division and the Teal Sharks (Team No. 4) battled the lout each other in a very well played, exciting game On May 16. Both teams did an outstanding job on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field and displayed lots of hustle throughout. Philip Rosenkrantz started in goal for the Dragons and had an outstanding game. He came out to challenge his opponents and came up with several saves. He was relieved by Vincent Bianco and James Mason in the second half. They, too, played extremely well on the day. The goalies job was made easier on the day by the spectacular play of Chris McManus on defense. He was all over the defensive end of the field. Blake Van Buskirk got the Dragons on the scoreboard early as he took an excel-lent pass from Joseph Del Prete and powered a shot from the right side past the diving Shark goalie. Del Prete then displayed some fancy footwork as he dribbled past the defense and picked up a goal of his own. Brendan McEvoy closed out the scor-ing for the Dragons as he took a pass from Del Prete, accelerated down the field for an and put the ball past the goalie. Also turning in solid games for the Dragons were John Maxwell, Thomas Read and Jeremy Kaufman. They were constantly in the middle of the action all game long digging out the ball and get-ting it out to their teammates. Matt Graziano used his speed as he kept pushing the ball down field pressur-ing his opponent's goalies. Brian Gerrity and Jimmy Walsh chipped in with some solid plays on both the offensive and defensive end all game long.

NO EXCEPTIONS Nick Delpopolo Takes State Bantam Wrestling Crown Westfield's Little Devils Traveling Wrestling TeammemberNickDelpopolo turned in an outstanding performance to take first place in the New Jersey Kids State Wrestling Tournament at Union High School. Delpopolo wrestled in the Bantam 70-pound division. Delpopolo was seeded as the result of his first place finish in the region quali-fier. In the preliminary round, Delpopolo ran off a 6-1 win over an opponent from Basking Ridge. He continued to roll with a 7-2 victory over a Mendham wrestler in the quarterfinals. In a tightly contested semifinal, Delpopolo fired in for a takedown in overtime for a 6-4 win over a highly- touted opponent. In the final match, Delpopolo dominated his opponent from Livingston with a 4-1 win. He scored a takedown and a rever-sal, and then rode his opponent and was never in danger as he wrapped up the state title. Delpopolo, a third grader at McKinley Elementary School, won four tournaments before capturing the states. Little Devils Coach Al Rabinowitz stated, "Nick is a hard worker and never gives up in match, when you think things are going against him, he pulls off a great move and turns the match around. He came into the states as an underdog, but never backed down and like he always does, he went out and wrestled well." Delpopolo is among a group of young wrestlers under Rabinowitz's tutelage who are putting Westfield back on the youth wrestling map. W.T.A.

Midori Yokoyama Jazz Soccer Post Victories Against Defeeters, Lightning TheScotchPlains-FanwoodJazzmatched up againsttheirtwolocal rivalsandcameout on top both times with 2-0 and 5-4 victories against the Westfield Defeeters and the Cranford Lightning, respectively. Shannon Hauser scored two goals in each game, including the game-winner against Cranford. Allie Hambleton as- sisted on three goals for the Jazz. Playing on Kramer Field on Sunday, the Jazz burst through the Cranford de- fense for two early goals and a 2-0 lead. When Hallie Mintz sent a perfect pass up to Maddie Wasser who cruised in for a breakaway goal midway into the third quarter, the Jazz seemed to be in com- mand with a 3-1 lead. But the determined Cranford team would not give up and scored two goals to knot the score. At that point Hambleton orchestrated the go-ahead goal when she tookaclearing passfromBeccaMcGuire. Hambleton then directed Hauser into the left corner for a pass. Hauser took the pass and slid a crossing pass across the goal mouth where Lauren Mains was waiting patiently to knock in the goal. Once again the Lightning struck to tie the score,butwithtwo minuteslefttheJazz scored to gain a hard-fought 5-4 victory. The Westfield game was a defensive struggle which featured some tenacious defense by Gaby Falco and Katie Van Haasteren. Jessica McGarry and Lauren Hercel kept up the pressure on offense, but in the game's final minutes it was two spectacular saves by Bitsy Kipping that preserved the victory for the Jazz.

All interested parties may be present and heard. The file pertaining to this application is in the Office of the Planning Board and is available for public inspection during regu-lar office hours. Barbara Horev Secretary to the Planning Board 1 T - 5/21/98, The Times Fee: $40.80 meeting the minimum requirements will receive a grant award of $25,000. Based on these rules, Westfield, with a land area of 6.29 square miles and population of 28,870, will receive a grant award of $25,000. Scotch Plains, with a land area of 9.60 square miles and a population of 21,125, and Fanwood with 1.3 square miles and 5,115 residents, will both be eligible for $25,000 grants. Plainfield and Union will receive $50,000 grants. Population figures are from the 1990 Census. On another economic development initiative, the board approved a con-tract with Global Market Strategies, Inc., of New Brunswick, to provide foreign investment in Union County and to promote the goods and services of companies located in the county. The one-year contract is $750 per month with a maximum of $119,700 for the length of the contract. Free-holder Linda d. Stender, who chaired the board last year, explained that the contract continued the county's ef-forts to develop international trade. Last year, county officials and the board welcomed a business delega-tion from Luxembourg, located in northwest Europe, with a group from the county, in turn, visiting that coun-try. Later this year, a group from Hol-land will visit Union County. Interna-tional trade connections are also be-ing arranged with Portugal and China, according to the Freeholders. Last week, a delegation from Saudi Arabia, representing 35 companies, visited the county as part of a trip arranged by the United States Mission to Saudi Arabia's Commercial Ser-vice. The trip was jointly sponsored by the United States Department of Com-merce for the American Council, the Union County Economic Develop-ment Corporation and the County of Union. "I think it bodes well for our efforts that are on-going, as we work to sup-port trade in Union County," Free-holder Stender explained. Freeholder Chairman Daniel P. Sullivan referred to the Saudi Arabian delegation visit as, "another event in the continuing effort to bring business - whether it's national or interna-tional - here to Union County." The board also authorized grants totaling $1,688,750 for the county "Project Pocket Park" program. As part of the one-year, dollar-for-dollar matching grant program, Westfield will receive $100,000 to buy the former Excellent Diner site on North Avenue West, which the Westfield Town Coun-cil has proposed to turn into a park. The council delayed action on an ordinance creating the park, pending a Planning Board application by the owner of the property to construct an office building on the site. Westfield will also receive $17,500 for the reno-vation of the playground at the former Lincoln School, on Westfield Avenue. Among the proposed improvements are new swings, a playing surface, benches, play equipment for kids and trash receptacles. The school is cur-rently leased to the Union County Educational Services Commission as a high school for emotionally dis-turbed students. Scotch Plains has been approved to receive $100,000 to acquire the former Terry Lou Zoo, more recently known as the Scotch Plains Zoo, property. While the Scotch Plains Township Council is moving ahead to condemn the property in order to create a park on the site, Sunrise Assisted Living has proposed to build a facility on the site which they just recently purchased. Fanwood will receive a $125,000 grant to create a passive park on Watson Road. Among the improve-ments will be the removal of asphalt, installation of a drainage system, land-scaping, water, electricity and a ga-zebo. In other business, the board ap-proved a six-month contract with "This Is It" Concept and Event Production Company of Hoboken, to produce and promote a two-day jazz festival. "Jer-sey Jazz by the Lake" is planned for Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 13, in Nomahegan Park in Cran-ford. Freeholder said he believes the fes-tival will be a "marvelous" and "stel-lar" event for the county. He said there are hopes the festival will become an annual county event similar to the summer concert series at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside. The board also approved a resolu-tion supporting the development of an adolescent forensic facility to address the needs of multi-problemed youth who exhibit symptoms of serious men-tal illness and violent or sexually predatory behavior. Currently, adolescent offenders are often confined to county youth deten-tion centers, which county officials agreed is inappropriate, noting that these offenders are not well served within the traditional juvenile justice system nor community mental health services. At the start of the meeting, the board acknowledged the service of Elizabeth Police Chief Gene Mirabella, the father of Freeholder Alexander Mirabella. Chief Mirabella, who headed the force over the past eight years, has retired after 38 years. DiGiovanni is challenging Mr. McDermott's stranglehold on the Union County Republican Party. In an effort to win this political battle, Mr. McDermott has decided that the welfare of Union County residents should take a back seat to his political ambition, which led him to propose this change in Union County's gov-ernment." Freeholder Sullivan explained that the current county manager and nine-member system dates back 22 years. He said this form of government is the "most effective and efficient county government in the state." Mr. McDermott said a seven-mem-ber board "would reduce salary and personnel costs" in the county. Freeholder Sullivan said, however, that the proposal clearly demonstrates that Republican leaders are "out of touch with the voters of Union County." He said it is "outrageous" that Mr. McDermott seeks to alter county gov-ernment to "insure his political sur-vival and his personal monetary gain." "I truly believe that the reason voters have elected Democrats to the Freeholder board in the past three elections is because we listened to the people and implemented policies that are important to them," Freeholder Sullivan said. Mr. McDermott noted that leg-islation is being prepared at the state level for introduction in the Legislation, both houses of which are controlled by Republicans as is the Governor's office. If the bill is passed and signed into law, a ref-erendum would then be put before voters on the proposal to change the form of Union County govern-ment. Freeholder Sullivan responded that instead of "tinkering with a form of government that is not broken, he (Mr. McDermott) should start listen-ing to the voters. If he did, he might have a little more success on Election Day." Freeholders OK Program For Raritan Valley Towns GOP Chair Proposes Freeholder Districts For Union County CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 Luxembourg Mission Boosts Economic Development Plan Continuing their mission to expand Union County's economy by solidify-ing ties with the international market, officials recently returned from Lux-embourg with commitments from com-panies based there to visit the county to explore possible sites of operation. Freeholders Donald Goncalves and Linda d. Stender, Deputy County Man-ager George Devanney and a Port Authority of New York and New Jer-sey representative comprised the Union County delegation to Luxembourg. They met with members of Luxembourg's Ministry of Economy and Chamber of Commerce, FEDIL (an association of 400 companies and industries) and a bankers' association, as well as officials from Luxguard, Price Waterhouse and Tyco, which are American companies doing business in that country. They continued the international dia-logue begun last December, when 12 representatives from Luxembourg vis-ited the county to discuss trade and investment with business executives and public officials. "Union County's economic future is dependent on establishing ties around the globe," said Freeholder Stender, calling the three days of meetings in Luxembourg "extremely productive." "Our meetings not only resulted in two companies coming to see what Union County - the 'gateway' to the New Jersey/New York Metropolitan Area - has to offer," she said, "but enabled us to make valuable inroads in the country that is known as the 'gate-way' to Europe." Freeholder Goncalves, Liaison to the Union County Council of Eco-nomic Advisers, said that a priority of the Council "is to bring opportunities here and promote our area as an opera-tions center for access to the United States and North American markets." He said executives from two Lux-embourg- based, publicly traded com-panies - a packaging distribution firm and a manufacturer of construction materials seeking to relocate from the Midwest - will visit Union County next March to explore possible sites of operation. Freeholder Goncalves said the two firms will have an opportunity to see the benefits of setting up business in Union County, such as the county's infrastructure and proximity to major seaports, airports and commercial cen-ters. Freeholder Stender said that by es-tablishing ties in Luxembourg, Union County will have access to every major European city and their respective com-mercial opportunities. "We continued to build bridges and open dialogues in order to match busi-nesses on both sides of the Atlantic with goods and services," she said, noting that Luxembourg is "the cross-roads of trade for the European market of 400 million inhabitants." The Board of Chosen Freeholders and the county's Department of Eco-nomic Development have established several initiatives to promote the county's economic growth, while en-suring that taxpayer dollars receive their best return on investment, ac-cording to Freeholder Chairman Daniel P. Sullivan. No taxpayer money was used to fi-nance the Freeholders' mission, Mr. Sullivan maintained.

PUBLICATION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Mendoza Federal Fraud Trial to Begin July 20 As proof of identification to open the bogus New Jersey account, Mendoza presented the bank with a New Jersey driver's license and an American Express Platinum Card, each in the name of the New York Fleet Bank customer, according to the indictment. In the third count of the indict-ment, Mendoza has been charged with assuming false names and ad-dresses and taking and receiving from authorized mail depositories, letters, packages and other mail matter con-taining American Express credit cards and other financial informa-tion addressed to the false names and addresses. This count charges that Mendoza conducted an unlawful business by means of the Postal Service, namely the unlawful receipt of credit cards belonging to other individuals. In the fourth count, Mendoza is charged with using five unautho-rized American Express credit card numbers between July, 1997, and this past March to obtain things of value aggregating to approximately $73,105. Finally, Mendoza is charged in the fifth and final count with possessing and concealing letters, mail and other articles that had been stolen and em-bezzled, and, in fact, knowing that these items were stolen and embezzled. An indictment is a formal charge made by a grand jury, a body of 16 to 23 citizens, Ms. Hochberg noted. Grand jury proceedings are secret, and neither persons under investiga-tion nor their attorneys have the right to be present, she further explained. A grand jury may vote on indict-ment if 12 or more jurors find prob-able cause to believe that the defen-dant has committed the crime or crimes charged. Despite indictment, every defen-dant is presumed innocent, unless and until found guilty beyond a rea-sonable doubt following a trial. Judge Walls continued the pre-trial detention May 13 imposed on Mendoza by a United States Magis-trate Judge after a February initial appearance on the Federal complaint in which he was originally charged. Ms. Hochberg credited officers of the Mountainside Police Department, under the direction of Acting Chief James J. Debbie and United States Postal Inspectors, under the direc-tion of J.J. Skidmore, the Newark Division Postal Inspector in charge, with developing the case against Mendoza.

Mr. Asakawa was honored at the 59th annual School of Accounting and Beta Alpha Psi banquet in April. "It is an honor to be the first Japa-nese and the first foreign national to receive this award," said Mr. Asakawa, who is a tax partner in KPMG Peat Marwick LLP in New York. Mr. Asakawa directs tax services for KPMG's Japanese practice, par-ticularly advising on transfer pric-ing. Mr. Asakawa was named one of the Asia Pacific region's top tax ad-visors by the International Tax Re-view in May 1996. He received a degree in accounting from Oklahoma State in 1968 and passed the Uni-form Certified Public Accountant Examination in 1972. Mr. Asakawa is a native of Niigata, Japan. TV PRODUCER VISITS ROOSEVELT...Seventh-grade students in the Ca-reer Talk Soup program at Roosevelt Intermediate School recently learned about television production from Jim Wilson, the producer of the news portion of The Today Show. Mr. Wilson visited the school as part of the Sharing Talents and Skills program, which provides speakers for classroom enrichment. Paul Nazzaro Studio Opens Enrollment for Summer Enrollment is now open for the six-week summer session at the Paul Nazzaro Music Studio, located at 335 First Street in Westfield. Based on availability, the session will be held from the last week of June through the last week of July. It will give students the opportunity to begin musical development in a re-laxed atmosphere, according to Mr. Nazzaro. Private lessons are scheduled once a week in the afternoons for one half hour, and are designed to accommodate students with busy schedules. Studio offerings this summer include traditional lessons in a variety of styles such as classical, jazz, blues, popular, new age and other musical genres; mu-sic technology; the bi-monthly newslet-ter The Soundboard; studio cassette tapes and the Studio Web Page.

Using the music notation program "Finale," students can enter in music they have composed themselves (with some guidance from the teacher). Not only can they hear it played back, but they can take home a professional print-out of their score or an MIDI file to play on their home computers. Students have the opportunity to swing one moment from a baby grand piano to a digital keyboard with studio quality sounds and digital effects, Mr. Nazzaro revealed.

Page 24 Thursday, May 21, 1998 The Westfield Leader and THE TIMES of Scotch Plains - Fanwood A WATCHUNG COMMUNICATIONS, INC. PUBLICATION Scholastic Press Recognizes Hi's Eye as 'Best Weekly' For the seventh consecutive year, Hi's Eye, Westfield High School's (WHS) weekly newspaper, has earned first place in the American Scholas-tic Press Association's (ASPA) an-nual competition based in College Point, New York. This year, judges from the na-tional association also designated the publication as "Best High School Weekly Newspaper." Judges from the ASPA, which serves over 2,000 schools, evaluated entrants on coverage, writing and editing, design, hands-on produc-tion and business. An ASPA judge described Hi's Eye as "an excellent publication which shows a tremendous amount of time, energy and talent by editors, writers, photographers, computer/layout de-signers, and adviser." Hi's Eye's uncensored status and financial independence distin-guishes it among the nation's high school newspapers, according to Charles Soriano, a teacher of En-glish and Journalism at Westfield High School. "Hi's Eye is special because stu-dents must raise over $22,000 per year on their own to publish weekly," he explained. "The paper receives no funding from the Westfield Board of Education, which is why I am par-ticularly proud of the students' work and this national award." "This past fall the students raised an unprecedented $6,641 raking leaves in town during our annual Rake-A-Rama," Mr. Soriano said. "The Hi's Eye has been an invalu-able experience for me," said Tri-Editor Meghan Corbett. "To work on such a high caliber newspaper is a lot of hard work, but it is also the most rewarding thing I have ever done." "The newspaper is a huge commit-ment," added Tri-Editor Vicky Nusse. "Everyone on the staff sacrifices time from other activities, and it is nice to know that our work and effort has paid off." The Hi's Eye staff, made up en-tirely of seniors who have com-pleted two years of journalism study at WHS, is elected each spring by-the outgoing staff. In addition to Meghan and Vicky, Mark Matthews is also a Tri-Editor for the 1997- 1998 school year. Arts and Community Chief Editor is Karen Spector; News Editors are Kelly Korecky, Jennifer Early and Becky Hamilton. Op/Ed Editors are Scott Cutro, Christina Ho and Alicia Picou; Arts and Community Editors are Amy Coccaro, Lisa Feldman, Ben Gleason, and Sarah Sharpe; Features Editors are Cindy Koons, Heather Simpson and Ryan St. Clair. Sports Editors include Andrew Cambria, Amelia Hanley and Sarah Lechner; Advertising Editors are Nick Friedman, Jason Lemberg, and Stephanie Schraeter. Steve Abeles is a Senior Staff Writer. Serving as Managing Editor for Business and Advertising is Bryan Gates. Nick Friedman also serves as the Graphics Editor. Staff car-toonist is Craig Long and staff photographer is Matthew Schwab. EXCITING NEWS...The Tri-Editors of Hi's Eye, Westfield High School's weekly newspaper, express their joy after the publication won first place for the seventh consecutive year in the American Scholastic Press Association's annual competition and was also designated as "Best High School Weekly Newspaper." Pictured, left to right, are: Mark Matthews, Meghan Corbett and Vicky Nusse. Each Hi's Eye editor is enrolled in Journalism 3. Currently, 30 members of the Jour-nalism 2 class serve as copy editors. They include Peter Abdelmessieh, Elizabeth Ancharski, Sara Burnett, Timothy Caprario, Sara Carpenter, Jennifer Chiesa, Francine Chow, Jeff Diamond, Kitty Fromtling, Katie Gildea, Dave Goldberg, Lisa Gorbaty, Adam Gregory, Lauren Harris, Jes-sica Hu, Philip Jan, Mark Kosierowski, Rachel Laskow and Becky Matro. Other Journalism 2 students serv-ing as copy editors are Andrew McLaughlin, Caitlin Nish, Abby O'Neill, Aly Rentrop, Beth Satkin, Megan Shutts, Suzannah Skolnik-Smith, Erin Spafford, Alicia Starkey, Lauren Todaro, Lindsay Totams and Toby Weisslitz. "We're proud, but not surprised," said English Department Chair-woman Paula A. Roy. "The Hi's Eye maintains and improves upon its tra-dition of excellence with each new issue." Women for Women Opens New Office in Garwood Women for Women of Union County held an "Open House" on May 3, to officially launch its new office located at 511 North Avenue in Garwood. State Senate President Donald T. DiFrancesco, of Scotch Plains, along with Assemblymen Richard H. Bag-ger, of Westfield, and Alan M. Au-gustine, of Scotch Plains, were among the invited guests on hand to offer their support and congratulations to Marilyn Spera, Executive Director, and Susan Koslowsky, President. Teresa McGeary started Women for Women in Westfield in 1985 after her retirement as Executive Director of the Union County Council on Al-coholism. Through Mrs. McGeary's efforts, Women for Women was able to offer women services which were not available to them previously in Union County. The first autonomous agency of its kind in Union County, Women for Women is an alternative to the men-tal health services available to women. The agency provides sup-port for women going through tran-sitional or developmental crisis peri-ods in their lives through the combi-nation of support groups, individual counseling, community education workshops, referrals to other agen-cies and a crisis telephone operated OPENING THE HOUSE...Attending the opening of the Women for Women new Garwood, left to right, are Assemblyman Alan M.

Mr. Augustine Proposes Tax Break For Certain Charitable Purchases A bill which would provide tax exemption for certain charitable pur-chases has been released by the As-sembly State Government Commit-tee, and now heads to the full Assem-bly for consideration. The measure, A-1949, was spon-sored by Assemblyman Alan M. Au-gustine. He represents the 22nd Leg-islative District, which includes West-field, Scotch Plains, Fanwood and Mountainside. The bill would provide a sales and use tax exemption for purchases of goods to be donated to certain gov-ernmental, charitable and public safety organizations, according to the Assemblyman's office. The exemption would apply to gov-ernment entities such as public schools; charitable organizations such as non-profit and private schools, and public safety organiza-tions like fire companies and ambu-lance squads. It would also apply to companies who donate goods from their inven-tories. The bill provides that in cases where the intention to donate is not clear at the time of purchase, the purchaser will pay the tax but a re-fund will be made at the time the donation is completed. "This bill is designed to both justly reward those who make donations and to encourage others to donate as well," said Assemblyman August-ine. "Philanthropy is an important tool by which citizens can get involved on a real and substantial level, and this bill is intended to promote that," he concluded.
