Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns III
On Dec. 5, Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns III was honored in recognition of his work in the New Jersey law enforcement community.
More than 150 invited guests from throughout the nation’s law enforcement community gathered at the Hyatt Morristown Hotel to celebrate the third annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Dinner hosted by the Peace Islands Institute.
According to the Peace Islands Institute, the ceremony recognizes those in law enforcement who work tirelessly to protect and serve the residents of New Jersey and whose efforts help make a difference. The keynote speech was delivered by the Director of Homeland Security, Edward Dickson. Thomas Masters of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security - Federal Air Marshal Service hosted the dinner as the Master of Ceremonies.
Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns III receives a plaque from John Kuczynski, Chief of Detectives of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office.
The Peace Islands Institute is a national organization that aspires to bring different points of view and voices together with the spirit of mutual respect and acceptance in order to develop original and alternative perspectives on social phenomena as they relate to the lives of citizens. It honors law enforcement professionals every year at the annual ceremony.
In 2013, Kearns started a program in Hunterdon County known as “One Voice.” The program is based on a two-way communication process that addresses social issues through faith communities. The focus of One Voice is to bring together law enforcement and prevention professionals with leaders of the faith-based community to have “one voice” when addressing communities about today’s difficult challenges like substance abuse, crime, and keeping the county safe.
Kearns said, “The Peace Islands Institute is a wonderful organization committed to making the world a better place by bringing groups together to solve problems. Social level change can be achieved with all groups working together, delivering the same message. Much like the Peace Islands Institute, the Hunterdon County One Voice program is a wonderful opportunity to impact our community in a new way by bringing together many faith groups and organizations to put out a unified message to address various issues in the community.”
In addition to Prosecutor Kearns, the following people were honored during the ceremony:
Sheriff Michael Saudino – Bergen County Sheriff
Dennis Carletta – Assistant United States Attorney – NJ District
Philip Frigm – Supervisory Special Agent FBI Newark
Drew Lieb – Deputy Director of Homeland Security
Trooper James Hearne and Trooper Ruben Benavidez – New Jersey State Police

| New Jersey hunters take 132 black bears in first two of six-day hunting season, 19% less than 2012|
Hunters have taken 132 bears during the first two days of the state's six-day black bear hunting season, the state Department of Environmental Protection reports. Hunting zones are in northern Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties, and a very small area of western Bergen County. Nearly 7,000 hunters have permits to hunt bears during the short season,...
The smallest of the bears that inhabit North America, the black bear is found in New Jersey, primarily north of Route 78 and west of Route 287. Today, Dec. 11, 2103, is the third day of a six-day hunting season.
Hunters have taken 132 bears during the first two days of the state's six-day black bear hunting season, the state Department of Environmental Protection reports.
Hunting zones are in northern Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties, and a very small area of western Bergen County.
Nearly 7,000 hunters have permits to hunt bears during the short season, which ends at sunset on Saturday, Dec. 14. The bear hunt runs concurrently with the six-day firearm deer hunting season.
Seventy-nine of the 132 bears harvested over the first two days were taken in Sussex County, including the first one, a 279-pound adult male in Andover Township, by Christopher Olivio of Byram.
Twenty-four bears were taken in Warren, 17 in Morris and 12 in Passaic. So far none were shot in Hunterdon.
Black bears have been sighted in all 21 counties in New Jersey, but the DEP said the densest population, 'by far,' is found in a 1,000-square-mile area north of Route 78 and west of Route 287.
State biologists predicted earlier a bear harvest similar to 2012, when 287 bears were taken.
However, the harvest over the first two days of this year's bear hunt is 19% lower than last year, when 163 bears were taken.
Last year 189 bears were taken over the six days of the hunt in Sussex, followed by 43 in Morris, 32 in Warren and 23 in Passaic counties. None were taken in Hunterdon, Somerset or Bergen counties.
That was a decline of 60% compared to the 469 bears harvested in the state in 2011,
The bear hunting season was reinstated in New Jersey in 2010, following a five-year hiatus. In 2010, 592 black bears were harvested, compared to 298 in 2005.
The declining hunt numbers reflect a black bear population that the DEP calls 'robust.' The state estimates 2,500 to 2,800 bears north of Route 78 and west of Route 287, down from an estimated 3,400 bears three years earlier.
The DEP refers to the six-day hunt as one component of its 'Comprehensive Black Bear Management Policy,' which 'includes a common sense mix of bear management tools, including public education, research, bear-habitat analysis and protection and non-lethal bear management techniques, and a bear feeding ban.'
Commissioner Bob Martin said, “The overall goal is to reduce the number of bears to a more manageable number, while improving public safety by reducing bear encounters with people.”
The number and range of black bear, the largest land mammal in New Jersey, has risen since the 1980s.
The DEP reports that black bear sightings this year in the area north of Route 78 and west of Route 287 have dropped 21%. Further, damage and nuisance complaints are down 20%, and 'dangerous bear incidents' have dipped by 3%, to slightly more than 100 through the end of October.
That's the second year of decline, the DEP reported: in 2012 reported bear sightings fell 34% compared to the prior year, damage and nuisance complaints dropped 26% and 'dangerous bear incidents' were down by 43%.
Residents are cautioned to secure garbage and avoid feeding black bears in order to reduce conflict.

| Communities to hold school elections on Wednesday|
Voters in 26 New Jersey school districts will go to the polls on Wednesday, April 23, to select members of their local boards of education, the New Jersey School Boards Association reported.
Voters in 26 New Jersey school districts will go to the polls on Wednesday, April 23, to select members of their local boards of education, the New Jersey School Boards Association reported.
In 25 of the districts, voters will also cast ballots on proposed 2014-2015 school budgets. Two districts are proposing additional finance questions to continue or expand school programs.
The April annual school election, which four years ago involved more than 550, or over 90 percent, of the state’s school districts, is a far smaller statewide event today, because most New Jersey school districts shifted their board member elections to November, under legislation enacted in 2012.
Nonetheless, in those communities where April voting will take place, the election’s significance is not diminished, according to NJSBA Executive Director Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod.
“The local board of education represents the community in setting goals and policies that guide public schools and the programs and services provided to students,” Feinsod explained. “The board also negotiates collective bargaining agreements with employees, and hires and evaluates the superintendent who leads the district.”
‘Second questions’ Among the 25 districts holding budget votes, two districts — the School District of the Chathams, in Morris County, and the Greenwich Township School District, in Warren County — will also seek voter approval of “second questions” to allow specific programs that would exceed the district’s tax levy cap.
· In the Chathams, voters will be asked to approve an additional $460,000 to augment the District Technology Education Program in 2014-15. The increase will “enhance the ability to provide a thorough and efficient education to the students and to better achieve the core curriculum,” according to the ballot question.
· In Greenwich, Warren County, voters will act on a proposal to raise an additional $1.1 million to maintain a number of staff positions, including ten classroom teachers; a music teacher; an art teacher; two guidance counselors; a media specialist and a reading specialist.
Balloting will take place in the following 26 school districts:
Bergen County – Cliffside Park; Emerson; Fairview; Garfield; Hackensack; Midland Park; Oakland; Palisades Park, and Ramsey
Cumberland County – Bridgeton
Essex County – Irvington, and Newark (a state-operated district with no budget election)
Hudson County – North Bergen; Secaucus, and Weehawken
Middlesex County – Edison, and New Brunswick
Monmouth County – Neptune
Morris County – School District of the Chathams; Mountain Lakes; Pequannock; Riverdale, and Rockaway Borough
Passaic County – Passaic, and Totowa
Warren County – Greenwich Township
