The defense has not yet responded to the charges. The indictment is merely a formal charge. These defendants are considered innocent until proven guilty in court. These indictments were returned on Feb. 27. Dale Duckworth, 28, of Philippi, W.Va. and Michael Baucan, 34, of Morgantown, W.Va., were charged with drug possession, third degree. On Dec. 1, 2013, they allegedly had heroin in Bethlehem Township. Michelle McCauley, 41, of Three Bridges was charged with driving while her license was suspended. On Nov. 6 she allegedly drove in Raritan Township even though her license had been suspended after at least two drunken driving violations. Lagrant Greer of Beckly, W.Va., was charged with drug possession, third degree. He was arrested in Clinton Township after police found 180 bags of heroin in a car in which he was a passenger, on Dec. 27. At around 11:20 p.m. Sgt. Thomas DeRosa was checking out the McDonald's restaurant parking lot when he observed two occupants of a vehicle acting suspiciously. Upon approaching the vehicle, DeRosa observed a used bag of heroin on the ground next to the driver’s door. The officer learned that the driver was driving the rental vehicle in violation of the rental agreement. DeRosa ordered the driver, Jessie Rose Boucher, 30, of Beckley, W. Va. out of the vehicle but she repeatedly refused. When officers attempted to unlock the vehicle and open the door, Boucher, whose Rottweiler dog was also in the car, attempted to roll the window up and drive away. Boucher was ultimately removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest. Greer, a passenger, was found to be in possession of heroin when he exited the vehicle. Additional heroin was discovered inside the car, some of it in plain view, police said. A total of 180 bags of heroin were seized. Charles Wistuba Jr., 48, of Newton was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, third degree; forgery, third degree; theft by deception, third degree; theft by unlawful taking, third degree and burglary, third degree. He was arrested on Dec. 11 and charged with stealing copper and brass worth $813 from Norsal Distribution on Cregar Road in High Bridge on Nov. 29. Patrolman Jon Danberry’s investigation determined that Wistuba was a Norsal employee with access to the building and stole the metal when the establishment was closed. Norsal repairs and services electrical switch gears and other electrical components for building operations. Between March 1, 2013 and Nov. 29 he also allegedly used a company credit card in multiple stores. On April 26 he allegedly gave Norsal a fictitious check made out to a third party in an amount of more than $500 for reimbursement. Steven Scaracella, 40, of Bethlehem Township was charged with uttering a forged instrument, third degree; theft by deception, third degree; forgery, third degree and conspiracy to committee theft and forgery, third degree. On Oct. 23 or 24 in Clinton he allegedly conspired with another person and then tried to cash two forged checks at Riegel Federal Credit Union. The checks were allegedly from a closed PNC Bank account. Scaracella was wanted by the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department for failing to pay child support totaling $50,696.68. Scaracella and Alanna Friebely were arrested on Dec. 6 following an investigation by Sgt. Cory Kubinak and detective Sgt. Jay Hunter.

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

Hunterdon is healthiest county in New Jersey; Somerset second
Hunterdon County, with its relatively high income, plenty of doctors and residents interested in staying well, is again home to New Jersey's healthiest people. This is the fifth consecutive year for the top tanking, according to a study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.

Here Anna-Trudeau-Smith uses equipment at Hunterdon Medical Center's new Cardio Rehab Center. That's Stephanie Antosiewicz overseeing her exercise.Terry Wright  Hunterdon County, with its relatively high income, plenty of doctors and residents interested in staying well, is again home to New Jersey's healthiest people. This is the fifth consecutive year for the top tanking, according to a study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. They released the health rankings on Wednesday, March 26, covering every county in the United States. The ratings compare counties on 29 factors that impact health, including smoking, high school graduation rates, unemployment, physical inactivity and access to healthy foods. Hunterdon ended up first in two overall categories — health outcomes and health factors. Outcomes represent how healthy a county is, based on how many residents had low birth weights, the average length of life and how many residents are in fair or poor health and have bad mental or physical health days. Factors include what influences the health of the county, such as what percentage of adults smoke or are obese, how many are inactive or drink too much alcohol. Also covered are medical insurance, number of primary care doctors and dentists, and number of people who undergo diabetic or mammography screening; and social and economic factors such as amount of education, number of children in poverty, crime, deaths because of injury; and environmental factors such air pollution, housing problems, long commutes and driving alone to work. At the other end of the state, largely poor and rural Cumberland County — which has high rates of smoking, obesity and joblessness — ranks last among the state's counties for the fifth straight year in a row. Somerset County ended up second from the top of the list and actually beat Hunterdon in one category, length of life. Warren County was ninth on the list. The other counties determined to be New Jersey's healthiest are Morris, Bergen and Middlesex. The least-healthy counties include Essex, Atlantic, Salem and Camden. Somerset came in second largely because of the benefits of wealth and relatively few people who are out of work and don't have insurance. But Somerset ranks last for environmental factors such as drinking water and air-quality violations, as well as long commutes to work. For all the numbers for every county and an explanation of how they are determined, go to countyhealthrankings.org. Public officials could decide to tackle these problems now that they have been identified and compared to the rest of the state, said James Marks, the Johnson foundation's senior vice president. He noted that economics is a really important factor in determining health. “You get better housing and access to quality food. A higher-income family is more apt to send children to better schools.” While Hunterdon had just 7 percent of its residents without health insurance during the study period, Somerset was at 10 percent and Warren, 12 percent. Warren also had the lowest high school graduation rate of the three, just 91 percent, the lowest number who had some college, at 64 percent, and the highest unemployment rate. Warren had higher numbers than Hunterdon or Somerset in number of children in poverty, lack of social support services and percent of children in single-parent households. The report also found: Essex County residents are nearly twice as likely to die prematurely than those who live in Hunterdon County. Union County, the 10th-healthiest, has double the violent crime rate as its neighbor, Middlesex County, which ranked fifth overall. The foundation conducts the research project with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute using the most recent government data, ranging from 2010 to 2013, according to the report. The rankings provide county-to-county comparisons within a state; this year’s rankings also show interesting national trends: Teen birth rates have decreased about 25 percent since 2007. The rate of preventable hospital stays decreased about 20 percent from 2003 to 2011. Smoking rates dropped from 21 percent in 2005 to 18 percent in 2012. Completion of at least some college increased slightly from 59 percent in 2005 to 64 percent in 2012. This article includes reporting by Susan K.

Hunterdon is NJ's healthiest county, Cumberland least, report says
Hunterdon, Somerset, Morris, Bergen and Middlesex counties are the healthiest, and the Camden, Salem Atlantic, Essex and Cumberland are the least healthy, according to a new report TRENTON — Hunterdon County — where there’s lots of parks and health clubs, an ample pool of doctors, and not much child poverty or unemployment — is home to New Jersey’s healthiest people for the fifth consecutive year, according to a study that will be released today. At the other end of the state, largely poor and rural Cumberland County — which has high rates of smoking, obesity and joblessness — ranks last among the state’s counties for the fifth straight year in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s annual public health checkup. There’s nothing more important then economic stability to help foster good health, said James Marks, the foundation’s senior vice president. Factors like income, safety and public safety and education are the among biggest ones in judging the healthiest counties in the report, which also measures people’s behaviors, access to health care and environmental quality. 'Economics is really important, directly and indirectly. You get better housing and access to quality food,' Marks said. 'A higher income family is more apt to send children to better schools.' The other counties determined New Jersey’s healthiest are Somerset, Morris, Bergen and Middlesex. The least healthy counties also include Essex, Atlantic, Salem and Camden. The report found: •Â€Â… Essex County residents are nearly twice as likely to die prematurely than those who live in Hunterdon County. •Â€Â… Union County, the tenth-healthiest, has double the violent crime rate as its neighbor, Middlesex County, which ranked fifth overall. • €…Monmouth and Ocean counties are sixth and seventh healthiest, respectively, but Ocean has twice as many poor children and 9 percent fewer college graduates. It’s difficult to shake up the rankings year by year, Marks acknowledged. But government officials in counties across the country have used the foundation’s data to advocate for public projects that encourage healthy living. For example, The United Way received a grant to hold community meetings and rally support for improving early childhood education, based on the need identified by the county rankings, Marks said. 'What we are seeing and excited about is over the last few years, this is serving as a call of action to leaders in the state,' Marks said. 'We are in this together and we need to create a culture of health. This data exists, and we’re making it visible in a standardized way and putting it in the hands of the community.' The foundation says the findings can be used to make improvements even in counties that have gotten good health grades. Somerset County, for example, ranks second healthiest — largely because of the benefits of wealth and relatively few people who are out of work and don’t have insurance. But Somerset ranks last for environmental factors such as drinking water and air quality violations, as well as long commutes to work. Public officials could decide to tackle these problems now that they have been identified and compared to the rest of the state, Marks said. 'These rankings really can help a community decide what to work on when they have a discussion local leaders,' Marks said. The foundation conducts the research project with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute using the most recent government data, ranging from 2010 to 2013, according to the report. Leaders of the foundation, public health officials and lawmakers will discuss the findings at a Statehouse news conference this morning. The report may be found here.

N.J. priest barred from ministry over claim he sexually abused mentally disabled man in '90s
The Rev. Kevin P. Duggan "adamantly denies" an allegation that he sexually abused a mentally disabled man in the 1990s The Rev. Kevin P. Duggan, seen here in this undated Facebook photo, has been accused of sexually abusing a mentally impaired man in the 1990s. He denies the claim.Facebook Photo  The pastor of a Middlesex County church has been barred from ministry indefinitely following an accusation that he sexually abused a developmentally disabled man in the 1990s. In a letter read aloud at St. James the Less Church in Jamesburg last weekend, Metuchen Bishop Paul Bootkoski alerted parishioners to the allegation against the Rev. Kevin P. Duggan, 59. Duggan, who has served at six parishes in the diocese, 'adamantly denies these charges,' Bootkoski wrote. The claim was brought to the diocese in April by the accuser’s caretaker. In July, the alleged victim spoke with the Diocesan Review Board, a panel of lay people and clergy members who examine allegations of sex abuse. That same month, Duggan took a leave of absence from the church for treatment of alcoholism, Bootkoski wrote. Duggan spent the next four months at Guest House, a Minnesota treatment center for Catholic clergy members with substance abuse problems. He was scheduled to return to the parish soon, but the sex-abuse allegations have scuttled that plan, Bootkoski said. Duggan also needs more time to deal with his alcoholism, with which he has struggled for 'many years,' the bishop said. 'Even without these charges, Fr. Duggan needs to continue the work of strengthening his physical and emotional health before he can resume facing the workload and the daily stresses of pastoring a parish of nearly 1,700 households,' Bootkoski wrote. The church will continue to be led by an interim administrator, the Rev. Msgr. John B. Szymanksi. RELATED DOCUMENTS • Read Bishop Bootkoski's letter to parishioners of St. James the Less Church in Jamesburg Duggan was serving at St. James Parish in Woodbridge when the alleged incidents took place. The caretaker told The Star-Ledger Duggan fondled the man, then in his 20s, on at least two occasions on the church’s lower level, known as McCorristin Hall. In both instances, she said, Duggan instructed the accuser to wait for him in the basement after Mass. The caretaker asked that her name be withheld to protect the man’s identity. She said the accuser, who suffers from a neurological impairment and who has 'the mind of a child,' told a nurse about the alleged abuse during a hospitalization for emotional problems in April. The nurse immediately contacted police. The caretaker also reached out to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. She said she was told the agency could take no action because the alleged incidents took place too long ago. Sex crimes in New Jersey were subject to a statute of limitations until 1996. The caretaker said she has no doubt the accuser, now 49, is telling the truth. 'I can’t project what I think he felt, but he doesn’t lie or make things up,' she said. 'After he did tell, it seemed like it was such a relief to him. This is obviously something he kept deep inside.' View full sizeThe Rev. Kevin P. Duggan is seen in this screenshot from a 2010 Knights of Columbus newsletter.

During that conversation, she said, she was told the review board found the accuser to be credible. The alleged victim has accepted the diocese’s offer to pay for counseling, the caretaker said. She said the man’s family has not contemplated a lawsuit. Though the accuser was an adult at the time of the alleged incidents, his mental impairment raises the question of whether the case should fall under the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, the landmark document crafted by the nation’s bishops in response to the clergy sex abuse crisis. In his letter, Bootkoski said the case 'may or may not' fall under the charter, which requires that a priest be permanently removed from ministry for a single credible allegation of abuse. As a result, the bishop has referred the case to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. 'The diocese will then proceed according to their directions,' Bootkoski wrote. The bishop’s letter can be found on NJ.com, the online home of The Star-Ledger. Until the matter is resolved, Duggan may not serve as a priest or wear clerical garb. Erin Friedlander, a spokeswoman for the diocese, said the complaint is the first of a sexual nature against Duggan. The priest has been the subject of other complaints, mainly stemming from his drinking, parishioners said. Veronica Kreutzer, a longtime member of the parish, said Duggan sometimes yelled in drunken rages, verbally abused people and made a spectacle of himself during Masses, slurring and stumbling at the altar. 'It’s just really been a mess, and the people of St. James have been without a leader,' she said. In addition to the Jamesburg and Woodbridge churches, Duggan has served at parishes in North Plainfield, Old Bridge, South River and South Amboy.
