Freeholder Board Awards Grant To Promote Forestry in County The Union County Board of Cho-sen Freeholders was recently awarded a $2,000 grant to promote forestry and environmental awareness in its communities. In particular, the grant will pro-vide for educational programs within the county's many ethnic groups. "Even though we are in an urban-ized area, Union County is home to thousands of acres of parks and hun-dreds of species of plants, animals and birds," said Freeholder Chair-man Daniel P. Sullivan. "We want residents to have an even greater awareness of the treasures in their own backyards." The grant was developed by the New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry to help local and county governments to promote forestry and environmental awareness within their communities, particularly the importance of healthy tree cover within their communities. With its cultura1 diversity, Union County officials have proposed a program which will bring informa-tion and awareness to the many ethnic groups in its 21 municipali-ties. County parks such as the Watchung Reservation, Lenape Park and Rahway River Park, as well as smaller parks and the proposed neighbor-hood "pocket parks," are home to very different unique environments. Educational materials would also explain the different fauna and envi-ronments within the county's for-ested areas. The county would also develop special events and materials to bring individuals from the county's ethnic clubs and organizations into the county's forested areas. Among the topics the county will bring to communities are educa-tional materials and speakers on environmental topics and issues, particularly on the role played by trees and green areas in our com-munities; guided tours of Union County's forested areas; explana-tions of the impact of the "El Nio" and "La Nia" weather systems on green areas in the county, and en- courage residents to attend the county's educational programs on tree planting and maintenance to encourage greater awareness of the importance of healthy tree cover. Programs and educational mate-rials would be customized for the county's largest ethnic groups. Printed in several languages, the materials would include compari-sons of Union County's environ-ment to systems elsewhere in the world. A strong emphasis would be placed on the importance of pre-serving the plants and animals in this region.

Summer Program Scheduled To Combat Litter in County The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders has announced a summer-long program to combat litter in its 21 municipalities, utilizing five cleanup crews which will work with county and local officials. Beginning on Monday, June 1, the county will send cleanup crews into municipalities, roads and parks. The Freeholder board has reached out to officials in each municipality to identify areas, such as vacant lots and roadways, for county labor crews to focus their attention on during the sum-mer months. A work schedule for the crews will be provided to town officials and police departments. Four litter crews will fo-cus on important areas within the county:  Inmate Labor Crews - two crews, each with 10 inmates, will focus on Union County's "Gateways," which are major roads leading into and out of the county, including highway entrances and exits.  Public Works Labor Crew - a crew of 10 young people, ages 16 to 21, who will focus exclusively on county roads.  Building Services Labor Crew - a crew of 10 young people, ages 16 to 21, which will respond to requests from local officials to target sites in commu-nities which need immediate attention.  Parks and Recreation Labor Crew - a crew of 15 seasonal workers who will target county parks, particularly Rahway and Warinanco parks. This crew will be permanently stationed at the parks. In addition to keeping the county's roads and communities clean, the pro-gram will provide summer employment for several crews of young people. The Freeholder Board will provide the crews with training in traffic safety, lifting, proper work attire, ticks and the han-dling of sharp objects. The Freeholder Board will kick off the program with a ceremony on Mon-day, June 22, in the Freeholder Meeting Room at 9:30 a.m. The public is invited to attend and to learn more about this program. Check Us Out On the Web! Women Voters Announce Arrival of 'Rolling Readers' The Westfield Area League of Women Voters has selected May for the debut of "Rolling Readers" at the Westfield Neighborhood Council, af-ter a successful introduction of the program in Rahway elementary schools. "Rolling Readers" came about as a result of a League study of the Governor's proposed Juve-nile Justice System reforms two years ago. League member Yvonne Carbone of Fanwood and her committee de-cided to act on one of many disturbing findings uncovered during their re-search - that a vast number of juve-nile offenders can not read or write. Their first endeavor was the compi-lation of a directory of programs around Union County which utilize volunteers to mentor and tutor youngsters. Five hundred copies of the result-ing brochure, titled "Help Wanted," were mailed to houses of worship, libraries, and anyone requesting it. The League also decided to pursue a lead Mrs. Carbone had come across during her research, called "Rolling Readers" - a program begun in San Diego which recruits volunteers to read weekly to classes of young chil-dren in their local elementary schools, and then distributes free books to these children. The next decision the league had to make was where to start the pro-gram locally, and how to recruit vol-unteers. "Our problem was solved almost by accident," said Mrs. Carbone. "My son-in-law is a policeman in Rahway, and I happened to call just the right librarian, Mary Pritting in the Rahway Public Library, who was very enthusiastic about our idea." "She knew that the Principal of Grover Cleveland Elementary in Rahway, Mr. Larry Reed, was ac-tively pushing for such programs in the schools," Mrs. Carbone contin-ued. "Ms. Pritting introduced me to him and things just took off. "My committee recruited volun-teers by talking to the police, senior citizen groups, and town council-men," she explained. Anyone interested in participating in the program or seeking informa-tion on "Rolling Readers" may call (908) 889-1974. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization dedicated to informing the public on matters of public policy. Anyone of voting age may become a member. For information, please call (908) 654-8628. ON A ROLL...Yvonne Carbone of Fanwood, a member of the Westfield Area League of Women Voters, shares a book with a second-grade student from Grover Cleveland Elementary School in Rahway as part of the "Rolling Read-ers" program. The league, which recently introduced "Rolling Readers" to that city's elementary schools, has chosen May to bring the program to the Westfield Neighborhood Council. SEALFON'S 3X4

May 21, 1998 The Union County Torah Center will hold a special Torah reading of the Ten Commandments on the first day of Shavuot, Sunday, May 31, at 11 a.m., followed by an ice cream party for chil-dren and a dairy Kiddush. The program is free and open to the public, and reservations are not needed. Shavuot, a two-day festival which com-memorates the giving of the Ten Com-mandments and the Torah on Mt. Sinai, will be ushered in on Saturday evening, May 30, and will continue through Sun-day and Monday, May 31 and June 1. This holiday places a special emphasis on the education of children. Rabbi Levi Block of the center ex-plained that the Midrash relates that various guarantees were offered at Mount Sinai to ensure that the Torah would always be cherished amongst the Jewish people. All the suggestions, however, were refused until they pro-claimed, "Our children will be our guar-antors." On the first day of Shavuot, the Jew-ish people traditionally make an effort to have all men, woman and especially children (even infants) attend the read-ing of the Ten Commandments in the synagogue, just as the Jewish people gathered together at the original pre-sentation, 3,311 years ago.

CORBIN Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times For the fourth time in five years, the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School boys' track team has claimed the Union County Boys Track and Field Champi-onship; this time by out-pointing a strong Elizabeth team, 92-88. Karl Jennings and Blair Woodward came through in the high jump event to push the Raiders past the Minutemen who had a slim 78- 74 lead at that time. The Westfield boys placed sixth with 27 points. Jennings tied for second with Ottley Freeman of Plainfield in the high jump, clearing 6-6, and Woodward captured fourth with a height of 6-4. Adam Bowser took sixth in the event with a height of 6- 0. Resoul Jones of Plainfield won the high jump by clearing 6-6 in less at-tempts. By the end of the event, the Raiders had added 11 points and Eliza-beth had gained only two with a fourth-place finish. The Raiders did the most damage in the field events. Woodward pounced to first in the long jump with a leap of 23- 2.75, Bowser seized second with a leap of 20-8.75 and Nathan Jones grabbed fifth with a distance of 20-4.75. Although not taking first, sophomore Dan Loomis had a personal-best push of 51-10.75 to take second in the shot put and teammates Jim Feeley with a shove of 48-3 and Scott Paterson with a heave of 46-0.5 placed third and fifth, respec-tively. Woodward also nailed sixth in the javelin with a toss of 155-2. Jennings crossed the line first in the 110-hurdles with a time of :14.1 and Woodward was right behind at :14.8 to claim second. Jennings was edged by Maurice McClain of Elizabeth in the 400-hurdles with respective times of :54.2 and :54.3. Bowser crossed fourth at :56.5 and Blue Devils Dave Geissler at :58.5 and Steve Dennis at 58.6 finished fifth and sixth, respectively. Blue Devil Dave Citrin soared 12-0 to grab second in the pole vault and team-mates Josh Ray at 11-6 and Erik Clinton at 11-0 placed fourth and sixth, respec-tively. Blue Devil junior Gordon Kaslusky picked up a fourth in the 3,200-meter with a time of 10:00.9 and Raider Nick Klastava captured the sixth spot with a time of 10:15.9. Earlier in the season, Citrin was hav-ing quite a bit of problems with his knee and was barely clearing 10 feet during the regular season meets; but just re-cently, he cleared a personal-best 13 feet to take first in the Watchung Con-ference and grabbed second in the county tournament. "I had been suffering with a unusual patellar (knee cap) problem. The bone was scraping against my thigh bone (fe- mur) and was causing a lot of pain. I rested the knee and jumped less fre-quently, and it seemed to help quite a bit," explained Citrin. When asked about how he felt about his personal-best jump, Citrin pointed out, "I had cleared 13-4 in practice, but I had never officially made 13 feet until the conference meet. I needed to get at least that height to prepare me for the Group championships and hopefully, the Meet of Champions. The starting height at the Meet of Champions is 12-6." Raider Lau'renn McDaniel crossed fourth in the 400-meters with a time of :51.8. Raider James Canterbury took fifth at 4:30.9 in the 1,600-meter event and Blue Devil Bill Zachar placed sixth at 4:39.4. Blue Devil Jason Krieger nailed a fifth in the discus with a whirl of 125-4. The Raider foursome of Bowser, Jones, McDaniel and Jennings placed third in the 4x400-meters with a time of 3:25.9 to seal the title. The Blue Devils came in fourth with a time 3:28.8. "I knew that it was very close and we got a shot in the arm with our perfor-mance in the high jump," commented Raider Head Coach Jim O'Connor.

The Blue Devils who totaled 162 points, sped past a highly competitive Scotch Plains-Fanwood team, led by Christine Hillman who also took two gold medals, which finished with 134 points. Korfmacher had an impressive day by taking first place in the 200-meters with a personal-best time of :26.9 and later turned in a leadoff split of 1:01.63 to team up with Egan at 1:03.4, Sage Stefiuk at 1:03.54 and Heather Dennis at 1:04.51 to easily seize first in the 4x400 event with a time of 4:12.8.

The Raiders out-pointed the Westfield High School boys who took second, 189-132. The Raider and Blue Devil boys claimed first in 13 of the 15 events with the Raiders winning nine and the Blue Devils grabbing four. Woodward seized first in the long jump with a leap of 22- 1.5, the javelin with a toss of 153-11, the 100-meter dash with a time of :11.5 and the 200-meter dash with a time of :22.9. Presently, Woodward has the best leap in the state in the long jump at 23-4. Blue Devil Dave Citrin soared to greater heights to easily claim first in the pole vault with a personal-best 13 feet vault. Citrin had just came off an injury which had kept him relatively inactive for several weeks. Raiders Nick LaCosta at 11-6 and Steve Cole at 9-6 took second and third, respectively, in the pole vault. Blue Devils Erik Clinton at 9-0 and Josh Ray at 9-0 grabbed fourth and fifth, re-spectively, in the event. Raider senior James Canterbury beat out Blue Devil Peter Anzelone, who fin-ished with a time of 2:02.5, in the 800- meter event as he crossed the line in CONTINUED ON PAGE 16 4:34.5. Korfmacher also crossed second at 1:02.2 in the 400-meters which was won by Egan with a time of 1:00.5. Egan also placed fourth in the 200-meters with a time of :27.6. Hillman had two of the three Raider firsts as she leaped 15-2.25 in the long jump and pushed the shot put 29-9.5. Hillman also cleared 4-6 to take second in the high jump and turned in a time of :18.1 to capture fifth in the 100-hurdles. Teammates Kari Whitley at 29-9 and Katie Feighner at 28-.5 placed second and third, respectively, in the shot put. Blue Devil Alison Westerhold grabbed sixth in the shot at 26-2.25. The Blue Devils and the Raiders totally dominated the 3,200-meter event. Devil freshman Alexis Anzelone led the pack with a time of 12:19.6 followed by Devil Rachel Ackerman at 12:27, Raider Jeannette Tourjee at 12:49.4, Devil Laura Brucia at 12:50.3, and Raiders Holly Oates at 13:20.5 and Andrea Maggi at 13:35. The scenario was nearly the same in the 1,600-meters. Blue Devil Megan Shutts at 5:26.9, beat out Stefiuk at 5:27.3 and Anzelone at 5:38 for the first three spots. Raiders Erin Kelly at 5:46.1 and Karen Haight at 5:50 placed fifth and sixth, respectively. Shutts, with a time of 2:24.1, also came in second in the 800- meter followed by Stefiuk at 2:25.7 and Raider Erin Kelly at 2:29.1. Devil Tara Bhandari picked up a sixth in the event with a time of 2:29.5.

Senior Courtney Thornton provided the power punch to convince the Panthers that they were in for a rough ride. Wagner, who had been ablaze since the tournament started, struck out three Panthers, walked none and allowed only one hit. Wagner also helped her cause offensively in the fifth inning. After Colleen Ryan ripped a leadoff double, moved to third on and error and scored on Kristen Leonardis' suicide squeeze, Wagner slapped a single to drive Leonardis home, making the score 2-0. Thornton crashed a triple with one out in the sixth and zoomed home on Ryan's single. Liz McKeon stepped to the plate and bashed a double to put runners on second and third. Leonardis bopped a two-run single, then later, Wagner poked another RBI single. Thornton added the finishing touch by crunching a three-run homer in the top of the seventh.

If we placed third, we would have the meet won," concluded O'Connor. The Blue Devil girls captured two firsts and finished third overall with 67 points behind Plainfield which had 95.5 and Elizabeth which totaled 84.5. The Raider girls finished fifth with a total of 36. The Blue Devils came on very strong in the distance events. Blue Devil Megan Shutts crossed first in the 1,600-meters with a time of 5:36 followed closely by teammate Sage Stefiuk at 5:36.6. Raider Karen Haight took fourth with a time of 5:41.9 and Blue Devil Alexis Anzelone finished sixth at 5:49.4. Shutts at 2:25.7, Stefiuk at 2:27.1 and Katie Egan at 2:27.5 also placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively, in the 800-meters.

The Raiders placed fourth in the same event with a time of 4:22. Egan at 1:00 and Korfmacher at 1:01 also placed second and third, respectively, in the 400-meters. Korfmacher also ran into some inter-esting situations in the 200-meter dash. Korfmacher won her heat but was inad-vertently and totally forgotten by the judges. After some discussion from some of the competitors and coaches, Korfmacher finally got recognized. An-other bit of confusion came about in how the competitors were placed in their heats. The better the competitor's listed times prior to the meet, the better will be their opportunity to run in a faster heat. Several coaches claimed that some of the athletes' times may have been altered in order to get placed into a faster heat. Running without much com-petition, Korfmacher placed sixth with a time of :26.8. Raider Erin Brandt grabbed second in the 400-intermediate hurdles with a time of 1:08.3 and Shawna Morgan captured a third in the 100-meter dash with a time of :12.9.

Raider Girls Crumble Blue Knights, 14-4 Devil Girls Upset Union; Advance to County Final Raider Boys Ace UC Title; Devil Girls Capture Third CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 By DAVID B. CORBIN Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times Raider Melissa Lorenz kept the flame blazing in an eight-run first inning with a two-run double as the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School girls' softball team galloped over the Blue Knights of Irvington, 14-4, in Scotch Plains on May 15. Lorenz and Diana Mendez accounted for nine RBI. Raider pitcher Jill Mazzagetti took con-trol in the first inning by striking out Maria Rivera. Next, she got Tray Moore to ground out to second, then completed the inning when Aida Gonzales hopped out to short. The Raider offense stormed the Blue Knights immediately. Mendez led off by hustling out an infield single. When Lauren Schwartz stepped to the plate, Mendez stole second on the first pitch. Schwartz then reached first safely on an error by the first baseman and Mendez glided to third. Michelle Evans whizzed a single over short and Mendez sped home with the first run and Schwartz followed on a throwing error. Wendy Underwood whacked a liner to the left fielder who made a bare-handed catch for the first out. Chrissy Romeo drilled a single down the third base line to put runners on first and third. Jill Mazzagetti stepped to the plate and skid a two-RBI single past the shortstop. Af-ter Jen Stewart tapped a single to center, Jan Weiner rolled an infield single to the right side and two-more runs scored. Lorenz brought Stewart and Weiner home with a double to left, then Schwartz drove Lorenz home for the eighth run of the inning with a single to center. The Blue Knights lanced the Raiders with a run in the top of the second. Both Shondella Browne and Jen Cherilas got hit by pitches, then advanced one base on a fielders choice. Later, Browne slid into home safely after the ball was dropped by the Raider catcher. Romeo and Mazzagetti both reached first safely on errors to begin the second inning. Stewart walked to load the bases, then Lorenz drove in Romeo on a fielder's choice. Mendez smashed a double to right to bring in two more runs and Schwartz brought in the fourth run of the inning with a sacrifice fly. The Blue Knights added two more runs in the top of the fourth on two walks, an error and a single to bring the score to 12- 3. Raider Stewart singled in the bottom of the fourth and Mendez crushed a triple to bring her home with the 13th run. After Tray Moore scored the final run for the Blue Knights in the fifth, the Raiders finished them off when Evans thumped a double and Underwood poked a single to bring Evans home to enable the Raiders to win by virtue of the 10-run rule. Mazzagetti got the win; however, Mendez pitched the last two innings for the Raiders who improved to 9-7. Irvington 010 21 04 Sc Plns-Fanwood 840 11 14 The Westfield High School girls' soft-ball team had a rough road to travel to get to the finals of the Union County Softball Finals; however, they reached their des-tination by pulling a shattering, 6-0, up-set over second-seeded Union at Memo-rial Field in Linden on May 15. Senior Shannon Wagner whizzed a six-hit shut-out over the mesmerized Farmers. Wagner also led the six-seeded Blue Devils offensively with three hits and three RBI. Wagner drove in two runs in the second inning just after Liz McKeon ripped an RBI single. The Blue Devils upped their lead to 5- 0 in the sixth. McKeon thrashed a single, then scored on an error. Stephanie Flynn poked a single and came in to score on Abby O'Neill's squeeze bunt. The Blue Devils totaled 12 hits and committed only one error as they el- evated their record to 12-5. Union dropped to 16-3. On May 16, Westfield faced fourth-seeded Roselle Park which upset first-seeded Governor Livingston, 11-1. Westfield 030 002 1 06 Union 000 000 0 00 Blue Devil Girls Squeeze Crusaders, 1-0, in UCT By DAVID B. CORBIN Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times Blue Devil pitcher Shannon Wagner came out on top of a tense pitchers' duel as the sixth-seeded Westfield High School girls' softball team ousted third-seeded A. L. Johnson girls from the Union County Tournament, 1-0, in Clark on May 14. Anisha Ambardar crossed home safely on a bunt by Stephanie Flynn. The game was not without scoring threats. Crusader Karen Kolmos thumped a double down the left field line to leadoff the bottom of the second. After Wagner struck out Katie Burns for the first out, Chris Azoia hit a pop-up which was dropped by the second baseman on the outfield grass. With runners on first and second, Jessica Gosdoski got off a beautiful bunt-single to the right side to load the bases. Erin Lanigan flied out to shallow right for the second, then Wagner fanned Kelly Ferrara to escape the inning. Kolmos, the Crusader pitcher, retired the first six Blue Devil batters and in the third inning allowed only a walk to Flynn. Wagner faced another Crusader attack in the third. Shelly Grunder bopped a single over second. After Chris Brazitis flied out to left, Deanna Lynn hit a pop-up which dropped between the right fielder and the center fielder. Wagner was in another tight spot, but she per-formed beautifully by getting Kolmos to fly out to left and Burns to ground out to first for the third out. Blue Devil Paige Corbett ripped a one-out single between third and short, but was left stranded when Kolmos silenced the next two batters. The most serious Crusader scoring threat came in the bottom of the fourth. Leadoff batter Azoia crunched a double over left fielder Colleen Ryan's head. Wagner struck out Gosdoski for the first out. With Lanigen at the plate, Azoia dashed to third when catcher Sue Phillips dropped the ball. Lanigen tapped a grounder as Azoia headed home. A throw to home resulted in Azoia sliding, creat-ing a cloud of dust, and Phillips putting a tag on Azoia. When the dust had cleared, Azoia was called out. Ferrera bounced a one-hopper back to the mound and Wagner threw her out at first to quell another Crusader threat. Now, it was the Blue Devils chance to do the threatening. Ryan smashed a double in the gap between left and center field. Ambardar replaced Ryan at second. McKeon's bunt attempt was popped-up to the pitcher for the first out. Kristen Leonardis dribbled a grounder which was missed by the first baseman and the Blue Devils had runners on first and third. Flynn stepped to the plate and laid down a bunt between the mound and first. Ambardar alertly flew home with the only run of the game. The Crusaders were not about to give up. Lynn looped a two-out single over first base and Kolmos reached first on an error by the second baseman. Lynn zipped to third on the error. With Burns at the plate, Kolmos stole second, and now there were two Crusaders dangling the Sword of Damocles over Wagner's head. However, Wagner kept her head and struck out Burns for the third out. Both pitchers maintained their domi-nance in the final two innings and the Blue Devil defense put on a fine fielding display to preserve the win. Corbett made two spectacular catches in right field and Flynn made a beautiful snag of a foul ball between first and home base. Westfield improved to 11-5 and ad-vanced to meet second-seeded Union in the semifinals. Johnson fell to 9-3. Westfield 000 010 0 01 Johnson 000 000 0 00 Hillman also placed sixth in the shot put with a shove of 31-3.75. Kari Whitley picked up a sixth in the discus with a heave of 89-9.

It was the second time that both the Blue Devils' junior varsity and the var-sity teams have won the Union County Championship at the same time. In 1990, in Head Coach Maggie McFadden's first year, the Blue Devils' varsity captured the title by downing Union, 2-0. The junior varsity, also under the guidance of Matthews, claimed the JV title. The Westfield varsity elevated its record to 13-5 while Roselle Park fell to 17-2.
