While there was no local race in Franklin, 18,918 residents went to the polls, which is 76 percent of the township's 24,853 registered voters. Franklin voters were one of the few municipalities to stray from county trend, supporting Democrats on the county, state, and national level. Freeholder Patrick J. Fittipaldi of Watchung was elected to his third three-year term, while Sheriff Robert Lund of Green Brook and Clerk R. Peter Widin of Watchung also won re-election. "They're going to be coming back to Somerset County asking what we're doing," Somerset County Republican Committee Chairman Dale Florio said after the polls closed. "The county's all right, the nation's in trouble," added Freeholder Director Christopher S. Bateman, who joined fellow Republicans at the Courtrooms in Somerville Tuesday night.

A two-month investigation by the Franklin Township Investigative Bureau culminated with the arrest last week of three juveniles and one adult and the seizure of a sawed off shotgun, recovered in the rear yard of a residence on Churchill Avenue. Police would not release the suspects' names unffl the investigation is completed. Charges are pending in Somerset County against a ffth i i police said. The four suspects have been charged with armed robbery in Somerset and Middlesex counties, in connection with robberies that took place during the months of August and September, according to Police Sgt.

Old inn restored Franklin Inn becomes used book store By LOME RUSSO THE FOCUS FRANKLIN - A building once known as Annie Van Liew's Tavern on Amwell Road is now carrying another name: Franklin Inn Used Books. Jim Moise of the Blackwells Mils Canal House Association made a special trip to the old inn Thursday, now owned by Onka Bus Service, to show the restored first floor, which is now lined with shelves of books at the Franklin Inn Used Book shop. He said restoration to the structure, took several months, is important because the association pieced back together a building which had fallen into a deplorable state of disrepair. "I think history is important," Mr. Moise said. "It's hard to know where we're going if we dont know where we've been." He said the Blackwells Mills Canal House Association, now celebrating its 20th year, had been seeking a place out of which to run a book shop. One of its members peered in the windows one day at the Franklin Inn and thought the place was perfect Proceeds from book sales will help to fund continued restoration of the canal house. "This is ideal for us," Mr. Moise said "We wanted a place that harmonized with the historic preservation feeling. The more preservation, the better. I think saving this and making it useful and productive and giving something back to the community is also important This is not just a bookstore. It is a resource for the community." The structure was built in 1734 by the Van Iiew family and according to Mr. Moise, the Franklin Inn's two main claims to fame were it was a stop on an important stage coach route between Philadelphia and New York, as well'as being near a canal that was once a transportation hub for the area. When the canal was one of the focal pints for transportation, boat captains used to frequent the tavern. Nothing substantial in terms of historic events occurred here, said Mr. Moise, except that British Gen. Comwallis stayed there for five days when his troops were camped at Colonial Park during the Revo- SHARON W1LSOWTHE FOCUS Audrey Zuccarelli of Franklin checks out a book in the cooking section of the refurbished Franklin Inn. lutionarywar. The building ceased to be a tavern shortly after World War I when East Millstone voted to forbid alcohol in the community during the Prohibition. The inn hung on for a while as a restaurant without a liquor license and then was the home to a succession of tenants. The two front rooms on the left side of the inn's entrance were the two tavern rooms and a room with a big brick and stone fireplace the canal house association hopes to use as a meeting room. Collections of old hard cover books lining the shelves inside the historic building include those of Longfellow and Alexander Dumas, author of The Three Musketeers, as well as other fiction and non-fiction titles, as well as a children's section. Repairs to the downstairs, which features hand-hewn wood beams, original floors and fireplaces, included electrical, plumbing and roofing, as well as aesthetic work. The outside of the building has been painted. Several businesses have called the inn home over the years. They include an antique shop called The Spot which sold "old good things." and a canoe livery.

Though the old income-based system of determining rebates will remain in place for all seniors, under the new system homeowners under 62 years old with a combined household income of $40,000 a year or less will receive a flat $90. Renters under 62 will receive flat checks of $30. Non-seniors households that earn more than $40,000 will lose their rebates entirely. Under the old system, households would receive a rebate equal to the difference between five percent of their annual income and their property tax payment, up to a maximum of $500. For renters, rebates were equal to the difference between yearly income and 16 percent of total annual rent payments, according to Richard McGrath, a spokesman for state Treasurer Samuel Crane. Under the old system, taking into account the disparity between income and property tax payments provided relief for those who needed it most, said Mr. McGrath. A a look at how Somerset County communities will fare under the revised program suggests that residents of wealthier" (Continued from page 3) communities will get back more money on average than poorer ones. The people of Franklin Township, where the 3,650 recipients in 1992 will be 4,470 fewer than the year before, will lose a total of $1,383,578 in rebate money. Property owners in Millstone will lose $25,206, with only 49 of last year's 104 recipients slated to get checks this year. Throughout the entire county, 36,526 less residents will receive checks. Among those that do, the average amount will be $51, compared to $227 in In all, the county's non-seniors will receive less than one-tenth the 1991 rebate total of $14,325,154. The checks, which were required by law to be mailed out by Oct. 31, are expected to begin arriving next week, according to the report. Recipients had to apply for their rebates along with their 1991 income tax return.

"It's basically knowing how to preside at meetings to make sure everything runs smoothly," Mrs. Sas said. "Knowing these procedures helps to have better meetings and makes sure that every voice is heard, and that matters affecting the common good can be discussed in a courteous and dignified manner." Mrs. Sas became involved with the local Parliamentarian unit partly out of a desire to learn how to conduct business meetings for her organization, the New Jersey State Federation of Women's Clubs in New Brunswick, a 98- year-old non-profit organization which founded Douglass College 75 years ago. Mrs. Sas, who is involved in the Meadows Foundation, a group dedicated to the preservation of local historic sites, / i also thought knowledge of Parliamentary Law would be to her benefit as an active township resident A Parliamentarian, Mrs. Sas said, is "an individual who by his or her experience and knowledge can give correct advice on Parliamentary procedure," which involves, she explained, knowing the rules of Robert's Rules of Order. This book was written by Brig. Gen. Henry Martin Robert, a West Point graduate who was often referred to as "Peacernaker." He was born May 2, 1837, near Robertsvale, S.C. Although Mrs. Sas is unsure of the first publication date of the book, she reports Mr. Robert's 657-page book on rules "has stopped a million fights in thousands of organizations for more than 100 years." The book covers a range of procedures, from absentee voting, actions that can be rescinded, ballots, quorums, setting up bylaws, how to handle motions, executive sessions and disciplinary procedures. Mrs. Sas said Brig. Gen. Robert, "through his involvement in the military, felt there should be rules to govern, which is why he was referred to as a great peacemaker." Mrs. P.W.

6 Hammin' it up SGS drama troupe rehearses for first season Cover Story November 6,1992 By LOMERUSSO THE FOCUS FRANKLIN Except for an occasional interruption because of silliness or fits of giggles, the Sampson G. Smith Players, a group of 20 middle school students, performed well last week during the second rehearsal for their winter musical. The drama teacher, Ken Schwartz, who has been teaching for about 15 years and is in his first few weeks as a drama instructor at Sampson G. Smith School (SGS), had composed an opening number for the SGS Players to perform as a lead-in to their first play, Once Upon a Playground. He hopes the newly formed troupe will eventually tour different schools. The number, "We're A Part of It Now," has the Players dancing on stage and teasing the audience with lyrics such as, "Where's your program? Sure we'll sign it. It's our duly to embrace the public, our fans..." For some students, this is their first introduction to drama at the middle school level. Others appear to be theater veterans. But one thing is certain all of them seem to be having a wonderful time at it. Eddie Mendoza, 13, said he became involved in the "theater" at the tender age of four. "I was in baby commercials," he said, adding, "This is fun. It's a good way to pass time. I like being creative." Scott Zavodnick, 13, has done two radio commercials for the Bridgewater Commons Mall and industrial videos for Ford. "I like acting because you get to do a lot," he said. "It appealsto me." The play the 20 students are involved in, Once Upon a Playground, is about how people are so concerned with being different, one because of the shape of her nose and another because of his height. The moral, according to Mr. Schwartz, who is the play's author, "is that we should all accept differences." "This is an ideal theme for this age," he added. Mr. Schwartz, who wrote the magnet drama curriculum for the middle school this year, has an extensive theater background that dates back to college, when he used to try out his brand of com- # edy in the school cafeteria. He also composes his own musicals for students and those to his credit include Betty Boop and Prince Valiant. He used to teach in Glen Ridge, where he started a drama club that grew from 20 participants to 300 ROB PAINE/THE FOCUS Dancers Sheriff Braxton and Kim Hunter practice their steps during rehearsals for the Sampson G.

At SGS, Mr. Schwartz said he wanted to developing an acting program with "pizzazz." "My philosophy is to get as many kids as I can involved," Mr. Schwartz said. Mr. Schwartz said he has worked with middle schoolthrough high school-aged students and likes middle school because of the philosophy that teachers "are -sr concerned with the development of the whole child." "I like getting students excited about the theater," he said. "I like the energy." He also said the middle school magnet program is exciting, although it's offtoa shaky start, adding the students here "can take so many diversified subjects that can get them offtoa good start.

He once had a comedy group, which performed at Rascals Comedy Club in West Orange. Now, he's content to be a teacher and train the future actors of the world. In addition to the Players, he is also working on a fullscale school production, Dream City, which is a take-off on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Mr. Fittipaidi, a two-time freeholder director who chairs the board's finance, solid waste, and capital planning committees, ran on his record and experience. Ms., Sabbagh had argued that the board, which has not included a Democrat since 1982, lacked diversity. Even though Gov. Clinton failed to win Somerset County, county Democratic Committee Chairman f John Loos said the election overall could be a big plus for his organization's future. "I think if Bill Clinton does well, it says to the people of Somerset County that Democrats can govern and govern well," Mr. Loos said. Franklin was the only town that carried all three county Democrats. Sheriff Lund faced an aggressive challenge from another political novice, Denise Velcheck- Lipari of Somerville. Ms. Velcheck-Lipari had been a nurse at the county jail in Somerville for a year and a half before launching a campaign of unrelenting attacks on the sheriff for mismanagement, security breaches, racism, and sexism at the jail. -- However, Ms. Velcheck-Lipari lost some of her credibility, as well as the support of the county Democratic organization, when she was suspended from her post in October following a report that linked her romantically to an inmate. Ms. Velcheck-Lipari blasted the report as politically motivated and insisted he correspondence with the inmate was part of a ruse to expose lax jail security.

8 8 Franklin Focus November 6,1992 Commentary Editorial The job's not over $68,000 restored to social service funding and the freeholders look toward Thanks to a state law that allows Somerset County to transfer unspent funds in its $128 million budget from one place to another Nov. 1, the Board of Freeholders has restored allocations to nine nonprofit social service agencies to their 1991 levels. The board's action comes after Finance Director Gordon Burrows found the funds a total of i $68,130 by taking them from departments or divisions that have not spent all of their budgeted money. j The action also follows what appeared to be a heartless decision ~ in the spring to give those agencies 40 percent less in the budget than they received from the county in This cut is a small amount of the county's budget but a considerable threat to existing social service programs. The freeholders were also criticized because at the same time they reduced funding for the nine agencies, they awarded $10,000 for the first time to HomeSharing. Restoration of funds to the nine agencies will enable programs, in many instances put on hold or reduced during the past six months, to be reinstated. Chris Heer of the Resource Center for Women and Their Families says the center had to cut down on outreach programs aimed at women who have left abusive relationships and are no longer in crisis but still need counseling. Those programs, she said, will be brought back to strength. Diane K. Smith, executive director of Somerset Sussex Legal Services, argued in the spring that in purely economic terms the reduced funding did not make sense. The $9,532 reinstated this week would pay to fight 30 evictions, Ms. Smith said. Thanks to the freeholders' action, the social service allocations at least for this year's budget have been restored. But the job's not over. The freeholders have formed a committee this year to hear testimony from agencies asking for county funds under the budget. A decision could come as soon as Nov. 17. They will determine need by taking face-to-face testimony and by assessing the advice of Department of Social Services Director Cornelia B. Thum. Let's ask that they also weigh heavily the need of existing programs. The freeholders should first continue funding even if it's only at a 1991 level social service programs that are already committed, programs with a proven need and an existing clientele.

So, recently, when we decided to do a similar event, we contacted the Food Bank. But, we were told they no longer do food drives with businesses! So, we are no longer allowed to raise food for our local food bank. I was shocked to learn that the Food Bank refused to accept my patients' generous donations solely because they are being made through my office. Maybe the Food Bank has more food than they need? Now, we are being forced to take our fund-raiser out of town. The food drive we will be doing this year will be raising food for the food bank at the New Brunswick Salvation Army.

As an independent insurance agent and president of the Professional Insurance Agents of New Jersey Inc. (PIANJ), a trade association representing the interests of insurance consumers and independent agents, I urge you to join our association's efforts toward meaningful auto insurance reform. Simply stated, PIANJ has developed a reform proposal that would provide affordable coverage for all and the option to purchase additional coverage for those who want it. Our plan includes only one mandatory coverage a $25,000 Personal Economic Loss (PEL) policy. The policy would provide coverage for economic losses up to policy limits. Higher amounts and additional coverage would be available. Our PEL proposal eliminates the cost of non-economic loss (pain and suffering) lawsuits from the insurance system. Such lawsuits have become a get-rich-quick avenue for some while adding tremendous cost to the system and to insurance premiums. Drivers would still be able to purchase coverage for non-economic losses through accidental death and dismemberment coverages as part of the reform package. Please support PIANJ's reform proposal by urging legislators to make the plan law. Details of PIANJ's auto reform plan are available through my agency and PIANJ's headquarters in Trenton.

Century 21 celebrates anniversary By LORIE RUSSO THEPOCUS FRANKLIN - Century 21 Our Town Realty on Easton Avenue is approaching its 14th anniversary with the news that the firm is ranked in the top 20 percent of all Century 21 locations nationwide. This ranking for the third quarter of 1992 is based on the gross number of dosed commissions earned by the office, which correlates directly to the number of houses sold. Despite a lagging economy, the firm, covering Somerset, Hunterdon, Middlesex and Mercer counties, is now ranked by Century 21 as No. 4 in the state and No. 19 in its region on the basis of gross closed commissions. The Easton Avenue office is one of 7,000 across the country. In December 1991, the office was No. 3 out of 171 in the state on the basis of gross closed commissions, making it one of the top producing offices in the country, according to Robert Sperte, Century 21 president and regional director. A second Our Town office was opened in North Brunswick in In Franklin, selling houses is made easier because of their affordability, according to Century 21 Our Town Realty officials. The four owners Anita Kronstadt, Pat McDevitt, Betty Edfort and HHdy Gross who began their venture in 1978, attest to this fact Each of their sons and daughters have settled in Franklin, and in a time when children are finding they can't afford a community that was once affordable to their SHARON WILSON/THE FOCUS Employees and their families gather Sunday outside the Century 21 Our Town Realty building to celebrate the agency's 14th anniversary. parents, this plays an important factor in the selling of real estate, the owners said. "Basically, this is a nice, friendly town," said Mrs. Kronstadt, who began her real estate career 25 years ago as a way to "get out of the house" Mrs. McDevitt said she started in the field 23 years ago because it offered the flexible working hours she needed to raise her children. Mrs. Kronstadt and Mrs. McDevitt, along with Mrs. Edfort and Mrs. Gross, opened their own Century 21 office because the firm they had worked with was bought by a corporation and they didn't like the way things were being run. A fifth partner, Helen Lyons, passed away shortly after the branch was opened. They selected the name "Our Town Realty" because, with five people opening the office, they didn't want the agency to sound like a law firm. "We wanted a name that was going to have a home town sound to it," Mrs. Kronstadt said. "Basically, we were unhappy with being with a company owned by a corporation," Mrs. Kronstadt said*. "We wanted to do our own thing. I didn't like the corporate feel and the fact that the offices were in another town. They didn't know anything about our town." Six months after opening Our Town Realty on Easton Avenue, the five partners gained a major share of the business. Mrs. McDevitt conceded it wasn't always easy to sell Franklin because of an image equating it with an inner city, but Mrs. Kronstadt said that is changing now. The township's strengths are in its diversity of population and landscape, from the mix of townhouses, commercial and industrial uses in the northern end of the township, to the serenity of the area along the Delaware-Raritan Canal. "Franklin is a nice melting pot of all types of ethnic races," Mrs. Kronstadt said "When we drive people from out of the area around here and they see things like Colonial Park and all the shopping centers, they just can't believe it" Dick Loughlin, president and CEO of Century 21 Real Estate Corporation described the Our Town office's achievement as outstanding, saying "Their commitment to excellence and quality service exemplifies the professionalism that is a hallmark of the Century 21 system." "Ib be good," Mrs. McDevitt said, "you need flexibility, energy, patience and empathy. You have to be able to listen to people. For some, this is the biggest purchase they may make in their lives, and you have to treat it as such."

MILZA Special to THE FOCUS When was the last time your child's eyes were checked by an eye care professional? Children may pass a school eye test but still have vision disorders. The American Optometric Association states that about 16 percent of children who are 5-12 years old have vision problems that can affect their ability to read and learn. Many school-age children may be inaccurately labeled as slow and unable to keep up with their classmates due to correctable, but undetected, vision problems. A host of difficulties such as remembering what is read, confusing similar words, and even frequent daydreaming all may be vision-related. Other signs of vision difficulties include: Dislike and avoidance of close work. Turning or tilting the head to one side. Closing one eye. Trouble finishing timed written Placing the head close to a book or desk when reading. Excessive blinking or rubbing of Losing place while reading. Complaints of headache, nausea and dizziness. Poor vision in elementary school is especially damaging because it interferes with learning the basics. Make sure your child has the benefit of good eyesight.

Those costumes will make their last appearance next month, with the opening of The Mystery of Edwin Dmod at the theater. Mrs. Cusimano is leaving Franklin, where she has lived for 20 years, for the Chicago area Jan. 5. Her husband, who works with a pharmaceutical company, is being transferred to the Windy City. Her first play 10 years ago, when she began her theater career as a costume trimmer, was Camelot. She landed the job after responding to an advertisement in the newspaper. "The next thing I knew I was the costume designer," Mrs. Cusimano recalled. "I guess I had the knack for it." Mrs. Cusimano would rather tell stories about her last 10 years at the theater because when the conversation drifts to leaving her "family" her eyes swell with tears. "I've enjoyed this," she said. "We're just like family. I have a great attachment to these young people. And this is very satisfying, seeing your ideas are up there and saying to yourself, *Wow, did I do that?' " Anne Welby of Somerset, president of the Villagers Board of Directors, said she has never been surprised by her friend's talent "She is an excellent designer, very imaginative," Mrs. Welby said. "She can decorate anything and make it look good on stage. We will miss her tremendously." With every play, from Mrs. Cusimano's first bit of trimming for Camelot to her last for The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Mrs. Cusimano has started by reading the script and then developing colors for the lead characters. For instance, in Drood a lady of the night would be in rouge and the character Rosa in various rose tones. Costumes for the lead characters are always done by the Villagers, and her team composed of Joan Tietien, Ann Marie and Caroline MacCaffery. "They have been teamed with me for a long time," Mrs. Cusimano said. "I tell them what I'd like and they sew it." Mrs. Cusimane, who also does costumes at the Off Broad Street Theater in Hopewell, remembered that La Cage Avx Folles demanded the most in the way of costumes. "That was one of the most elaborate," she said. The theater sold the La Cage costumes, she said, adding that she was "very proud" of the work that went into that musical. One of her favorite shows was Into The Woods because she liked doing the fairy tale costumes, Over the years she has learned some tricks with colors. For instance, almost every color works well on stage except for green. She tries to stay away from bold red because it draws attention away from other characters. Some lavenders and purples don't work well either. "We'll have production meetings where I'll tell the lighting people what colors I'm using and that certain people will have to be hit with certain spotlights," she said. Mrs. Cusimano said she has always liked the theater and that LINDA D. EPSTEIN/THE FOCUS Janice Mazza and Kathy Monaghan show off costumes designed and made by Camille Cusimano.

Box 699, N.J Somerville, SHARON WILSONfTHt FOCUS Franklin quarterback Adam Dennington maneuvers against a Hillsborough rush during the Warriors' victory Saturday at Hillsborough. Franklin's record stands at 4-2. Too close for comfort Warriors shave upstart Hillsborough, By JEFF HANEY THE FOCUS Perhaps their first play from scrimmage, a 59-yard touchdown bomb from Adam Dennington to Razzon Davis, gave Franklin an undue sense of cockiness. Perhaps, as coach Joe Goerge suggested, the Warriors were paying too much attention to local newspapers' predictions and not enough attention to the playbook. Or perhaps it was the New Brunswick vs. Highland Park game the night before. You see, a group of Franklin players attended that contest as fans and watched Highland Park pull out a narrow victory. Who knows, maybe it inspired the Warriors to play a tight, seesaw game themselves. Whatever the reason, Franklin had more trouble with Hillsborough Saturday than anyone expected. The host Raiders gave Franklin a big Halloween scare, but the visitors finally neutralized Hillsborough and hung on for a win at David A. Noonan Field. "It was really close too close," Franklin's Jamar Porter summed up afterwards. Porter came up with a key interception of an Eric Jones pass in the fourth quarter that halted a Hillsborough drive and effectively clinched the victory for FHS. The Raiders, trailing 21-15, were in the midst of an 11-play drive and had a second-and-goal on the Warrior 8-yard line. Jones, the Raiders' sophomore quarterback, rolled out looking for the end zone. "Their receiver came out into the flat, and I saw the quarterback looking at him," said Porter. "I realized he was going to throw it to him, so I just ran in and I got the interception." Franklin (No. 3 in the Forbes 5 poll) lifted their record to 4-2 with the win, while injury-depleted Hillsborough slipped to 1-5. "The team played very well against a strong Franklin team," said Hillsborough Head Coach (Please turn to page 27) Taking a bite Locals tackle Big Apple, run NY marathon By JEFF HANEY THE FOCUS There are 25,945 stories that could be written about the running of the 23rd New York Marathon this past Sunday. Franklin Township can claim a couple dozen for its own. Township residents who competed in the gala event this year include both men and women, and range in age from 25 to 60. For some, it was their first marathon; for others, New York would be their swan song. Some were striving for a personal best, others were simply hoping they wouldn't have to be scraped up off the pavement somewhere along First Avenue. Though a diverse group, the Franklin runners do have one thing in common: courage. They all lined up Sunday morning at the foot of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in Staten Island, tested the limits of their bodies for 26.2 miles, and breezed (or stumbled, or crawled) past the finish line at the Tavern on the Green in Central Park Sunday afternoon. One of the more intriguing stories belongs to 60-year-old John Rogan, a Somerset resident for the past seven years. Running his 12th marathon overall and his third New York, Rogan finished in 5 hours, 32 minutes just behind race director Fred Lebow. "I was shooting for 5:30," said Rogan. "At age 60, I thought that would be pretty good." (Please turn to page 26) 7WO WEEKS ONLY! r TUNEUP~!

24 24 Sports Rutgers Prep soccer halted in semifinals On a cold, rainy day at Gill St. Bernards, the Rutgers Prep boys RUTGERS PREP soccer team succumbed to the host Saints, 6-0, in the semifinals of the Central Jersey Prep B tournament Monday. Gill improved to 19-2 and advanced to the title game against the winner of Princeton Day-Montdair Kimberley, while the Argonauts finished out their season "Gill had about eight good scoring opportunities and they were able to convert six of them," said Rutgers Prep Head Coach Bob Marotto. "We had about four opportunities and didn't convert any of them. But we went from whistle to whistle playing as hard as we could. They worked 100 percent." Prep goalkeeper Matt Hobbs turned in a solid outing, making 13 saves. But it wasn't enough to stop the Saints' attack. Rob Lancsak led Gill with two goals and an assist, and Matt Adler chipped in with a goal and three assists. "I think the weather had a little bit to do with it, but the kids played well," said Marotto. Final scoring leaders for the Argos included forwards Chuck Somers (9 goals, 3 assists) and Jeremy Staler (7 goals, 6 assists),. along with halfback Michael Rose (7 goals). In addition, fullback Ryman Maxwell had three goals and a pair of assists, while Craig Fallon played "a heck of a sweeper," according to Marotto. Gill St. Bernards 3, Rutgers Prep 0 In a regular-season preview of the semifinal matchup last Wednesday, goalie Ryan Neely made 10 saves, but the Saints prevailed as goaltender Eric Hymowitz earned the shutout.

25 November 6, 1992 Sports 25 Rutgers comes back to trip Virginia Tech, Rutgers Roundup In a wild and crazy finish, the Rutgers football team squeaked past Big East Conference rival Virginia Tech yes, 5049 Saturday before 28,432 delighted Homecoming Day fans at Rutgers Stadium. With the win, the Scarlet Knights improved to 5-3 and kept their bowl game hopes alive. The Hokies fell to The Scarlet won it when receiver Chris Brantley hauled down a 15- iyard pass from quarterback Bryan : Fortay as time expired, putting the finishing touch on an afternoon that saw the two teams combine for a whopping 14 touchdowns. Brantley himself scored four TDs to set a Rutgers record. Fortay also put together a fine day, going 24 for 45 with 338 yards and four touchdowns. The highlight of his outing, though, was the final drive, on which the Knights marched 78 yards in eight plays, taking 1 minute and 32 seconds. Fortay set up the last-second heroics when he connected with Mario Henry on a third down Hail Mary with 14 seconds remaining. Fortay then found Brantley in the back right corner of the end zone for the winner. If the Knights can get by Cincinatti this week and West Virginia, their final home opponent, on Nov. 14 they'll stand at 7-3 and in good shape for a possible bowl bid. The Knights finish the regular season at Temple. The Knights had to come from behind to win this one, as Tech jumped out to a lead by the end of the first quarter, and still I held a advantage at the half.? In fact, the 5049 score represented the only time Rutgers held the lead all day. But RU consistently chipped away, matching Tech's scores,-; through the final three quarters. «In the third quarter, backup quar- I terback Ray Lucas came in and I engineered a four-play, 26-yard I drive touchdown drive that Malik X Jackson started with an interception. A three-yard pass to ' Brantley capped the drive and made it 42-30, Tech. The Scarlet crept to within early in the fourth stanza when Craig Mitter scampered one yard for a touchdown. Mitter compiled 148 yards on the day to lead all rushers, and Highland Park product Brace Presley added 72 ground yards of his own. In the receiving department, Brantley racked up 124 yards on eight catches, and Jim Guarantano had 93 yards on seven receptions. Defensively, Jamil Jackson led the way with 12 tackles, and Kelly Woodward recorded nine tackles. Wilson delivers for Knights vs. Hawks They needed two overtimes to do it, but the Rutgers field hockey team came away with a 1-0 victory over Atlantic 10 Conference foe St. Joseph's on Thursday at Piscataway. Sophomore Nicole Wilson scored the game's lone goal, converting a centering pass from Melissa Scheparcarter with just 45 seconds left to play in the second extra period. It was Wilson's seventh goal, a team high. The Lady Knights improved their record to , while the Hawks slipped to Goalkeeper Jodi Deem made 14 saves for Rutgers en route to the shutout. Rutgers sophomore named unsung hero The College Soccer Association of New Jersey last week honored Rutgers sophomore defender Brent Longenecker as one of its "Unsung Heroes" of the state.

26 26 Sports November 6,1992 Plans for "super conference" scrapped By SCOTT ZUCKER THEFOCUS A proposal for a high school football "super conference" has been thrown for a loss. While the idea had support in the Watchung Conference, the executive committees of the Skyland and Mountain Valley conferences voted down a plan that called for four groupings to be formed among the 42 high schools that participate in the three conferences. Under the proposal, teams would only play other schools within their groups. These groups are determined by the size of the schools and student population. Scotch Plains-Fanwood Athletic Director Gene Schiller was one of the architects and principle supporters of the plan. He feels it may be still be salvageable. "Tne executive committee of the Mountain Valley voted 7-7-1, but they needed a two-thirds majority," said Schiller. "The Skyland voted against it because of the principals. "Some of the small schools would be competing strictly against schools their own size," he added. "I think (David) Brearley (of Kenilworth) felt they would suf- Marathon (Continued from page 23) Rogan ran his first marathon a bit later in life than most runners he says he started in the sport 16 years ago, when he gave up smoking. Rogan trained for the event by running miles a week, most of them at Johnson Park Despite his fine performance at New York, Rogan is ready to hang 'em up. This was his last marathon, he's decided. "I certainly am going to miss it," Rogan said. "It's a great race, and (Lebow) is a great guy. He looked kind of shaky at the end, more shaky than me. Next year, I'm going to go up there and help out" While Rogan was running his final marathon, Somerset's Michael Savino was competing in his first ever. Savino, 35, crossed the finish line in 4 hours, 28 minutes. "My goal was to finish, so I'm fer because they would play all Group 1 schools. They thought they would be at a disadvantage as far as power points. Travel was also a concern and I think people were worried about maintaining local rivalries." Brearley AD Thomas Santaguida had his reservations about the plan right from the start and did not support the measure. He feels the proposal to close down his school may have also been a factor. "We voted no," said Santaguida. "I don't think it is a dead issue, because there are a lot of people interested. One of the reasons it's on hold, is to see what happens in the regional division. Instead of having two Group 2 (schools) and two Group 1, we could have three Group 2. I think it's on hold until after the regional district makes a decision." Watchung Hills High School Principal Robert Baly, president of the Skyland Conference, believes that many administrators felt there were too many difficulties with the plan. "Personally, I've always thought it was feasible, but the conference stance was that it had too many problems according to membership," said Baly.

But the next day (Sunday), I felt a lot better." Savino prepared for the marathon by training six days a week at a rate of 40 miles a week, including a long run on weekends. He woke up and ran each morning at 7 no matter what the weather. Savino trained by himself, but has his friends to thank for turning him on to marathoning. "I have some friends who had done marathons in the past," Savino said. "They said it was a challenge, and I'm always up for a good challenge. I decided to take it upon myself to meet it" Another Somerset runner who net the challenge was Remo Colarusso, racing in his fourth NYC Marathon and fifth marathon overall. Colarusso set a personal best of 3 hours, 24 minutes, 35 seethe breaking up of some traditional rivalries were some of the complaints. The fact that it was only going to be done in one sport was'also a question. My personal feeling is that it was too radical a change. It would have to come in a more moderate form. It's a dead issue now." Cranford AD Bob Lelli, who was one.of the early supporters of the plan, feels it may still have life. "When we meet in our conference meeting November 10 we're going to discuss it again and look to revitalize it with changes," Lelli said. "The plan could be to not only play most games in your grouping, but to cross-over twice to bigger schools. The concept was approved by most of the AD's in the Mountain Valley Conference, but they were concerned over power points. We are going to try and get together with AD's and administrators and see if it can't be worked out." Not everyone seems to be sure of the exact reasons the proposal was rejected. "There were things that had to be worked out, but I was surprised they voted it down," said Middlesex AD Ronald J. Hayes. "There would be some longer trips, (Please turn to page 27) onds on Sunday, breaking his old mark of 3:34. "I got to the 20-mile mark, just into the Bronx, at 2:34," Colarusso explained. "Every year, I hit a wall right around there, but this year I did a lot of hill training, so I was ready." Colarusso's training included running 25 miles a week starting in July, increasing that to a peak of 50 miles a week, then tapering down to 39 miles a week in the last couple weeks before the marathon. Colarusso, 31, has lived in Somerset since After the 20-mile mark, Colarusso cruised. "I burned the next few miles, and was able to make it into the Park in reasonable time," he said. "Once you're in the Park, you're running on adrenaline anyway."

One of those big plays came on Franklin's first call from scrimmage, when Davis shook free from defender Alvin Williams, hauled down a long pass from Dennington, and churned into the end zone. Rich Utria's PAT kick gave the Warriors an early 7-0 lead. The Dennington-Davis connection sparked Franklin's run-andshoot offense all afternoon. On the day, Davis caught three passes for 81 yards while Dennington completed eight passes in 14 attempts for 137 yards. Another big play for the Warriors came right after Hillsborough took an 8-7 lead on a Jones touchdown sneak and a two-point conversion with 5:27 left in the second quarter. Ron Greene received the ensuing kickoff and bolted 79 yards for a touchdown. Franklin went to the locker room leading "The coach always says to look for the outside, and you should be open," said Greene. "I saw my blocker in front of me, took him, and cut outside. Then I saw a big gap open." The Warriors extended their lead to 21-8 in the third quarter, as a two-yard TD sneak by Dennington capped a nine-play scoring drive. The key play came on a third-and-11 from the Hillsborough 46 when Dennington threw a screen pass to Brian Britton, who raced 30 yards down the sideline. Franklin was able to snuff the Raiders' late comeback try, but it took some hard-hitting defense, led by Arthur Triggs and Jerome Wade, in addition to Porter's interception. Still, there were some hairy moments for the Warriors. "The kids might have been reading the newspapers and come in a little overconfident," said Goerge. "They shouldn't have been. Every year, Hillsborough is a tough game for them. After the first (touchdown) play, the kids might have had an illusion that it was going to be an easier game than it was." This week, Franklin carries on its hunt for a playoff spot as they host Somerville Saturday. Hillsborough faces a tough customer, welcoming Holy Cross to Noonan Field Friday night "We just have to learn from this loss and move on to next week," said Gsell.

Coach Joe Goerge feels that his teem may have gone into the game a little overconfident, especially since the Warriors scored on their first play from scrimmage, a 59-yard pass from quarterback Adam Dennington to Razzon Davis. Hillsborugh took the 8-7 lead in the second quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run and two point conversion run by quarterback Eric Jones. The Pioneers (3-2-1): Last Week: Defeated North Hunterdon The Pioneers's winning streak now stands at three, as they came from behind to top the Lions in dramatic fashion. In the third quarter, after the Uons had scored all of their 10 points in the second, Pioneer Tyrell Williams intercepted Lion quarterback Dan Tegedner and ran 70 yards to the Lion 10. Quarterback Rodney VanNess subsequently found Sekule Milich in the endzone a few plays later, to bring the Pioneers within three. Running back Tim Judson added the winning touchdown early in the fourth quarter on a one yard run to cap a 50-yard drive. The Skinny: The Somerville and Franklin rivalry, which has historically been a good one where nothing is needed to create enthusiasm, carries extra meaning this year since the teams are only separated by one-half of a game in the standings. Frankiln's defense uses basic set-ups, but is big and agile enough not to need anything complex. Offensively Franklin uses a run-and-shoot featuring quarterback Adam Dennington and wideouts Brian Britton and Jerome Wade. Pioneer running backs Tim Judson and Henry (Tres) Dorsey are the two main offensive threats out of an l-formation. Both runners have excellent speed, so Franklin will have to play a containing run defense to prevent the two Pioneers from getting to the outside and breaking for touchdowns. Quarterback Rodney Van Ness seems to be getting better each week.

For info, call or LINDA D. EPSTEIN/THE FOCUS Deviyani Prasad tries to guess Marissa Savastana's and Scott Schocklin's birthday withoul talking, an activity at this fall's first meeting of the "Ultimate Warriors," Franklin High School's athletes against drug and alcohol use. Plans for realignment tossed aside (Continued from page 26) but only for football. Maybe that's the reason, that is was only for football. Maybe there weren't enough definites like scheduling conflicts and how to decide championships." Bound Brook Head Coach Tony Pascarell offered some of his own solutions. "I'd like to see them go by geographical area and size of school," said Pascarell. "Maybe they should abolish all the conferences -The Franklin Focus- and start all over again. Maybe it should be like the Greater Middlesex Conference, where a school can move down if they're bad every year or back up if they're doing very well. "But, first of all, schools like Immaculata should not be in public school conferences because they're drawing from such a large geographical area." Perhaps Manville Head Coach Don Somma offers the best perspective, having previously coached at large schools like Elizabeth, Matawan and Brick. "(We) should be playing schools our size (Group 1) that are within our area, like Bernards, Dunellen, South Hunterdon," he said. "Now we have to get on a bus in two weeks to go play Hillside, a large Group 2 school. "I was in favor of the new league so we could play only other Group 1 schools. The trouble is, no one wants to go with that new league because of how it affects the playoffs."

28 Sports November 6,1992 I YOUTH SPORTS SOCCER FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP SOCCER CLUB Falcons 3, Saints 0 Despite its being All Saints Day, the Maplewood Cougar Saints couldn't score against the fabulous Franklin Falcons on Sunday. Miles Johnson opened the scoring early in the first quarter with an assist from Dave Retz. Falcons Michael Plagentlni and Michael Allen posed other scoring threats and harried the hapless Saints all afternoon. Midfielders Jeff Cesarlo, Trip Anderson and Sadlfcl Lue were the first line of Falcon defense, and their fancy footwork enabled the backfield to set up to shut down the Maplewood team. j Spearheaded by Chris Bartizal, Rico Jason and Frank Campbell, the fullbacks gave goalie Steve Katzenback an easy day, as there were few shots on goal. Falcon scoring was completed in the second half when Michael Strauss came on for two scores. DIVISION III TRAVELING [Old Bridge Unicorns 2, Franklin Panthers 1 I The Franklin Panthers had trouble with a Very physical Old Bridge Unicorn team push- Ing them off the ball in Old Bridge. The Panthers scored first as left striker Michele Phaien converted a penalty kick after being knocked down in the penalty box. The Unicorns answered with a score off a corner kick in each half, one an excellent header, to give them the win. The physical play prevented the Panthers from getting their shots off, although they outshot the Unicorns 15-6 and had more corner kicks 5-3. However, they were unable to capitalize on a couple good scoring opportunities. The Panthers controlled the tempo of the game with Panther midfielders Jenny Wade, Chamaigne Beidler, Marissa Fenner, Eileen Evans, and Blanca Garridc-Goyo playing mostly offense. However, strong Unicorn clearing kicks would push the ball over the head of the Panther defenders Jamilah Stanberry, Alex Petrone, Beth Hoeflinger, Lisa Hahn, and Sheema Majiduddln, who played most of the game in the Unicorn half of the field. The defenders ran down the ball and restarted the attack as Panther goalies Klra Mikita and Beidler only had to make two saves. Panther strikers Phaien, Stephanie Schmelzer, and Wade took a lot of bumping and were unable to get good shots off but still made numerous good crossing passes. The Panthers are away again this weekend as they take on the Watchung Wolverines in Watchung.

Want to buy a home and enjoy a great adventure - all at the same time? You can when you take time to make a wish list before you begin looking at homes. Start by providing each member of your family with a pad and pencil. Ask them to go off by themselves and make a list of every feature they would like to have in their new home. Place no limits on the number of items listed - twenty or thirty is fine. Next, ask them to rank each item by its relative importance to them, #1 for the most important, then #2 etc. Allow plenty of time, then call the family back together. Begin by asking each person to read their completed list without divulging the most important items. When everyone has has a turn, explain that no home on earth will meet everyone's expectations. Compromise will be needed to locate the right home with the highest number of features desired. From the individuals lists, establish which features are most desirable from the family's point-of view. Gain a consensus about the Anita Malo CRS, GRI most important items, and again agreement on which items arc negotiable. Finally, make a composite list which represents the combined agreement of the entire family. Give a copy that list to the real estate agent you choose to help find your new home. The list will help narrow the field of homes to only those which best suit your family. The agent Avill use the list to research available homes in the locations you desire most. When previewing homes, the agent can eliminate ones which do not match your list, giving you the freedom to choose from those which do. Ultimately, you will narrow the choices down to a single home which offers the greatest value for the price asked. In the process, you are likely to obtain more amenities and benefits than you ever thought possible. * * * *.< * Wliether you plan to buy, sell, invest or just need information, call us anytime at (908) or stop in at #i Route 206, Bedminster gj l saco-i

48 Weekend Sav it ain't so! j After 55 years, Superman is about to meet his maker. And we don't mean By WILLIAM WESTHOVEN WeekendPlus Editor Look! Up in the sky...it's a bird...it's a plane... Well, after this month, it probably is a bird or a plane. It sure as heck won't be Superman. No, sad to say, Metropolis will never be the same after Friday the 13th (or possibly the next Friday comic book release dates are a little unpredictable), and neither will one of the great traditions of 20th century folklore in the No. 75 issue of the DC comic book Superman, the Man of Steel will meet his final reward. But then again, unless you've been living on Krypton for the past few weeks, you already know about this shocking development. And ever since the media picked up on the story, comic book vendors have been working overtime to keep up with the demand for information about what is sure to be the largest-selling comic book in history. But what is the reason behind the move? What possible motivation can there be to knock off America's first and most-popular superhero, whose adventures have been chronicled in serials, on television and on the big screen for over 50 years? Well, for one thing, comic books, and the comic book business, have changed drastically over the past few decades. They've become big business, especially from a collector's point of view. As a matter of fact, the famous Christie's Auction Gallery in Manhattan held a comic book auction on Saturday. "I went there last week to see what they had, and you should have seen it," said Mark Marple of Marple Comics in New Brunswick. "They were handling the books with white gloves. Everything was first-class." But in recent years, as the collectors market brought more adults into the loop, several independent comic book companies, producing a new generation of heroes that appealed to adults as well as kids, claimed a significant portion of the industry's market share. The penetration of the independents virtually ended the nearmonopoly of the market once enjoyed by DC and Marvel. But pulling off a stunt like killing Superman is a sure-fire publicity bonanza, and already, local comic book merchants have reported a tremendous surge in Superman titles (Superman appears in five different books Superman, Superman, the Man of. Steel, The Adventures of Su-. Comic books aren't just for kids anymore Comic boots, it would seem, am like com flakes they're not just for kids anymore. "My comic book collection put me through for years of college," said Mark Marple of Marple Comics in New Brunswick. Marple has only been retailing comic books and related items for about five years, but he's been collecting them for decades. Fascinated by comics since he was a youngster, he used to help the local pharmacist fill up his racks in exchange for a few books. And he teamed from his father, who encouraged him to collect stamps or coins, how to preserve the books with plastic bags and firm "I was lucky he taught me about collecting," said Marple. "But stamps and coins were boring. ( Steel cemic books." Marple got a headstart pn his collection, but his methods of preservation are now commonplace among Hie millions of comic collectors around the country, who often plunk down hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, for coveted titles. Marple, though, says tie key is to buy early 4 Weekend! Forbes Newspapers November 4-6, 1992 and often, "IVe personally sold books for as much as $12,000. but for my own collection. I don't think I've ever paid more than $200 for oe book." he said. In an effort to secure as many potential collector's items as possible, many avid collectors buy hundreds ot books a month. Many will buy multiple copies so they have one to read and another to preserve. To catch the eye of the public, many publishers have resorted to gimmicks like reflective covers or added items. Superman No. 75, for example, will come in two versions - the standard book for $1.25, or the deluxe edition which is sealed in a polybag and comes with an armband and Superman's obituary from the Daily Planet. Retailers, meanwhile, try to oblige collectors by gmng them accounts so Jhey can just pick up their weekly or monthly order rather than hunting them down on the newsstands. Marple, for one, has benefited greatly by buidtng up a clientele that orders in advance. He eveji went so far as to develop a sophisticated computer ordering system with his partner In software, fellow collector Bernie Banks. "There's probably a thousand titles out there, if you count all the formats, and I have one guy who orders books a week, so ordering by computer is the only way to keep it straight. Now, I'll get an order of 4,000 books in on a Friday, and they'll be gone by Wednesday." But will the investment pay off? There's no guarantee, says Marple. but the going pnce for many titles, especially new tittes that take off after a few slow issues, can skyrocket almost overnight. "It's safter than the stock market sometimes," Marple claimed. But even if they don't increase in value, there's the excitement of following exerting, well-wntten stones and the appreciation of what is rapidly becoming accepted as real art. "Maus won a Pulitzer Prize and Sandman won the Fantasy literature Award, which was a first for comics," said Marple. "Mote and more, comic books are winning acceptance as a true art form." - William Westhoven I the artist perman, Action Comics and Justice League of America). "I normally sell about 10 issues of a Superman comic," said Steve tleyman, who recently took over Universal Cards and Comics in Scotch Plains. "I'rp ordering 150 issues of the death of Superman issue." "If I had ordered enough, I could have sold 10 times as many of SupermanNo. 75 compared to a regular issue," said Jim Martin of Comics And, another Scotch Plains comic outlet. "I think it's a good thing, because the interest in Superman had eroded a bit." Actually, to follow the story of the death of Superman, it's not as si mple as purchasing the singular Superman comic book. The six-part saga, in which Supejrmap battles a nasty beast known as Doomsday, began on Oct. 14 with Superman, the Man of Steel No. 18, before embarking on a crossover journey to Justice League America ^o. 159 and Superman No. 74, Adventures of Superman No. 497, Action Comics No. 684, Superman, the Man of Steel No. 19 before finally climaxing with Superman No. 75.? Got all that, superfans? "All the crossovers can be pretty maddening," admitted Heyman. But now that you've got all this interest, there's no more Supermaji. Right? There's several precedents for revivals in the comic book industry. Batman':; sidekick, Robin the Boy Wonder has been revived three times, and is about to be resurrected oncfe again with the forthcoming series Robin That's one of the great things about fantasy there are no rules. There is, however, an increasingly sophisticated audience that will demand a proper explaination and story line, or else the backlash could bury Superman forever. He may, somehow, survive Doomsday, but there's no escaping public scrutiny in a free; market. If they don't swallow the story, they won't buy the book, and Superman will suffer a more pejmanent fate he'll be out cf a jpb. What happens fiext is anybody's guess, but it'5 hafd to imagine they won't bi ing him back. After all, since Ma; vel comics popularized the concept pf continuing storylines, no good; itory ever ends, "Comic books ] lave become the male soap opera,' Marple ob- served. Want a hint? Tfiose in the know point to one x>ol, Superman Special No. 1, which jwas released about two m< >nth 5 ago. If you can find it, look for tl e clue that could open the door foil the Man of Steel's returr

52 Grove St. groove Warren Vache Trio headlines annual Metuchen Jazz fest By PAULA V. INGRASSIA WeekendPlus Writerr The Warren Vache Trio was selected as the sole act to carry the Metuchen Cultural Arts Commission's annual Jazz Fest on Saturday, Nov. 7, at Metuchen High School.

The trio consists of Warren Vache on cornet, Janice Friedman on piano and Murray Wall on bass.

After college, he was featured in a Broadway production ofdi: Jazz, a musical play based on the early days of jazz in New Orleans. He was a member of the New York Jazz Repertory Company and the Wolverine Orchestra, which performed at Carnegie Hall and was later featured in two television programs. I G H T He was also a member of the Benny Goodman Orchestra for almost a decade, and later became a member of the Concord All Stars, a group sponsored by Concord Records, for recordings and tours across the country and in Europe, Japan and Australia. Abo active on Broadway and in Hollywood, Vache was musical director for the Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor revival of Piivate Lives and coached Richard Gere for his role as a trumpet player in The Cotton Club. On screen, he portrayed a jazz musician in the movie The Gig, for which he was also musical director. He was also heard in Woody Allen's film Qrimes and Misdemeanors. Vachje has been featured on many recordings including several with Rosemary Clooney, with whom he frequently appears on stage and television. His most recent recording is Easy Going, a sextet album which is a showcase for his versatility and unique mastery of his chosen instruments the comet and the flugelhorn. His Warm Evenings album, which featured both a jazz trio and classical string quartet, has received widespread acclaim for its imaginative concept and masterful performance. Soundings I F E Warren Vache and his Trio will perform a variety of jazz styles in concert at Metuchen High School on Saturday, Nov. 7. Friedman is a jazz pianist whose playing is marked by deep classical training and full dedication to the jazz idiom. Her musical conception draws freely upon jazz' many forms swing, bebop, blues, progressive, modern balladry and has been shaped in part by collaborations with some of jazz' leading practitioners. She became pianist for the Woody Herman Orchestra when she was 27 years old and has performed in concert with Cab Calloway, Slide Hampton and Richard Stoltzman. Wall hails from Melbourne and moved to New York in He became interested in learning to play the bass when he heard Ray Brown play at a club in Melbourne.

54 Video fever The selection gets hotter as the weather gets colder By JEFFREY COHEN WeekendPlus Film critic O V I E S Some weeks, you just don't want to go to the movies. Or maybe you feel like a movie in the middle of the week, or you're just too plain lazy to leave your chair. This may come as a shock to you, but home video is just the thing. And this season is unquestionably the best all your for cassette renters and buyers, as studios do their best to encourage giving "the gift of movies." That leads to a discussion of star power, since such a quality dominates the movies just or about to be released to the homevid market. Showing up in your video store this week should be movies featuring Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Cruise, Jeff Goldblum and Larry Fishburne. Not to mention Nichole Kidman. And the guy who used to be Line on Mod Squad- Movies, quite often, are made because some big star or another expresses interest in the project. That gives you some idea as to the importance Hollywood places on the attraction of a star name. But does it always work, and even if it does attract large audiences, does that mean it's a good movie? Sister Act, the Whoopi Goldberg vehicle (which started out as a Bette Midler vehicle) that made umpteen trillion dollars at the box office earlier this year, is being released (in industry-speak) to the sellthrough market, meaning they expect you to buy, not rent, this one. It's a pretty large bet. Whoopi, the industry wisdom goes, made Gliost the hit it was (yeah, yeah, it had this neat love story, but without Goldberg, it would have all seemed sappy), and that buys "her a ticket to do pretty much whatever she wants. Sister Act, clearly, is whatever she wants. The (relatively trite) story of a lounge singer (yes, Whoopi does her own singing, and it's not terrible) who witnesses a mob hit and goes undercover in a convent don't ask was the biggest surprise hit of the year, proving that people will go see anything that's even supposed to be funny. Fact is, it's all pretty much like 100 other things you've seen that didn't make all that money. So go figure. But Kathy Najimy is a hoot as one of Whoopi's choir nuns, and so long as you forget the plot, it's enjoyable enough. But to see again and again? I dunno.. On the other hand, Far and Away was supposed to be the movie that brought big, sweeping romance back to the screen, and a sure bet at the Film capsules Capsule reviews by WeekendPlus staff OPENING THIS WEEK BECOMING COLETTE Passionate 19th century period drama based on the life of Franch writer Gabrielle Colette.

CANDYMAN Trendy horror fare based on Clive Barker short story The Forbidden. Runs low on plot but special effects are pretty good. Starring Virginia Madsen. (R) CONSENTING ADULTS Strong cast (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Kevin Kline, Kevin Spacey, E.G. Marshall) stars in Alan box office, with the teaming Tom Cruise (Mr. Box Office) and his wife, Kidman. Ron Howard (Splash, Parenthood) was directing, so it was a shoo-in. Everybody would go see this one. Except they didn't. Apparently disillusioned with Cruise when he doesn't drive a fast car, fly a fast plane or mix a fast martini, audiences stayed away from Far and Away in droves. And on examination, it's easy to see why. The story of Irish natives who (after much goes on) come to America and (after much, much more goes on) get involved in the Oklahoma land rush, the movie brings everything you need to a good epic attractive actors in old-time clothing, beautiful scenery, brawling, bawling and lusting except some good old-fashioned passion. That doesn't mean Cruise and Kidman should have ended up between the sheets every 10 minutes; this is not a Danielle Steel miniseries, even if it does occasionally feel like one. It means there's no force driving them, just random chance. Yes, Tom does a good job with the accent and Nicole, Aussie-by-birth that she is, has no trouble. But they have so little to play beyond stock bantering characters, that it all doesn't amount to two and a half hours worth of commitment. Now, Deep Cover has all the passion you'd ever want. It's teeming with passion. The story of the good cop with personal demons (Larry Fishburne of Boyz in the Hood) infiltrating a murderous drug ring revolving around a slick lawyer (Jeff Goldblum) is serviceable. And yes, Clarence Williams III is in it. The plot's nothing special, but it's enough. But Bill Duke's (A Rage in Harlem) direction and the bloodthirsty (Please turn to page 12) J. Pakula's thriller about marital infidelity as an exciting, mysterious couple upset the stable-but-stoic relationship of a typical suburban man and wife.

55 ">.*' '- dihh IIS Weekend! Review revue Critics lukewarm up to red-hot 'Lovers' Whether Marguerite Duras' novel The Lover is autobiographical or not is a matter of speculation. Whether or not French director Jean Jacques Annaud's film version of The Lover will be a hit is also a matter of speculation. Critics are somewhat divided on the story of a young French girl and her secret affair with an older Chinese man in French Indochina (Vietnam) in the 1920s: cal exercise without much personal communication. "Is The Lover any good as a serious film? Not really. Jean Jacques Annaud and his collaborators have got all of the physical details just right, but there is a failure of the imagination here; we do not sense the presence of real people behind the attractive facades of the two main characters." Chicago Sun-Times USA Today Roger Ebert Mike Clark "The elements in the story are the basic "With its soft-core sex and exotic recreations of French-Colonial Vietnam, The stuff of common erotic fantasies'-sex between strangers separated by age, race and Lover plays at times like a costlier, brainier social convention, and conducted as a physi- i EmmanuaUe movie...told in 1929 flashback, the film is narrated in first-person by a nicotine-voiced Jeanne Moreau. Unseen, she's the elder version of a character billed simply as "the young girl." And as played by Jane March, she has a toothy pout and posture so enticing that she stands out {even in long-shot) on a jam-packed ferry across the Mekong...Clothed, however, the leads are less interesting..." Movieline Stephen Farber "Director Jean Jacques Annaud does a splendid job of evoking the sounds and texture of a world we haven't seen on-screen. If the love affair of an 18-year-old French girl and a wealthy Chinese man doesn't contain enough conflict, the performances of Jane March and Tony Leung, and the eloquent narration spoken by Jeanne Moreau help to compensate. The Daily News Kathleen Carroll "Jane March exudes a precocious sexuality as the calculating heroine. A former model, she conveys the character's Lolitalike arrogance but has trouble delivering her few lines. Tony Leung is a revelation-while the movie never quite captures the magical intensity of Duras' deceptively simple prose, it remains a tantalizing Far East Romeo and Juliet." 1/C/OC Where Do Vou 'Find Over 100 Varieties^ of Bottled Waters?

56 Video review (Continued from page 10) screenplay insist on milking every opportunity to show us how gritty it all is, and after about a half-hour, it's just depressing. Weekend" Yeah, yeah, another movie about how thin the line between crime and justice really is. Next time, don't make us watch the guy get beaten to death with a pool cue, OK? If you're in the mood for Wayne's World and the tape's already rented when you get to_the store, you'll probably go for Encino Man, a remarkably dumb comedy featuring Pauly Shore of MTV. Also hitting the stores this week, Patrick Swayze as a doctor who gets disillusioned and goes to India for no particular reason in City of Joy. And no, we did not forget that Batman Returns is being sold in virtually every store in the country. But there isn't anybody out there who hasn't heard yet that this installment is either (A[ J) a more violent, unpleasant and even darker, or (B) funnier, more action-packed and generally better than the original.

58 Film capsules Weekend (Continued from page 13) (Thelma and Louise) overacts to great effect in the starring role. (R) SARAFINA Uplifting musical numbers are juxtaposed with disturbing scenes of violence, many involving innocent children, in a stirring film version of the Broadway musical hit. Whoopi Goldberg stars as an oppressed history teacher in South Africa who inspires the title character, a young teeanage girl, to become active in the struggle for freedom and a decent education. Many scenes were shot on the actual Soweto locations where black children were shot and tortured hyj white soldiers. The combination of celebratory dancing and slaughter may confuse some viewers, but the events shown are closer to real life than many would imagine. (PG-13) SINGLES Young habitants of a apartment building live and love in a movie that is more interesting for its showcasing of the hiphot Seattle music scene than for its quirky comic vignettes. Directed by Cameron Crowe, whose credits include the equally-hip, but more-insightful Fast 7Imes at Ridgemont High and Say Anything. With Bridget Fonda (see below), Matt Dillon (The Flamingo Kid), Kyra Sedgwick (Bom on the Fourth of July) and Campbell Scott (Julia Roberts' cancer-stricken beau from last year's Dying Young). (PG-13) SCHOOL TIES Working-class football hero is recruited by an exclusive prep school in the 1950s and becomes the Big Man On Campus. His school and schoolmates turn on him, however, when his Jewish heritage is revealed. (PG-13) UNDER SIEGE Martial hunkist Steven Seagal (Hard to Kill) is back on the attack, upsetting the plans of a nutso Special Forces commander (Tommy Lee Jones) and a corrupt Navy commander (Gary Busey), who are out to steal nuclear weapons. (R) ZEBRAHEAD Winner of the 1992 Sundance Rim Festival Filmmakers award, first-time director Anthony Drazen, with help from executive, producer Oliver Stone, has fashioned a timely, intense drama about two teenage friends, one white and one black, growing up in an ethnically mixed neighborhood of a large American city. Trouble, and eventually, tragedy ensues as events echoing modem racial and urban troubles begin to develop. Voung actors are supported by screen veterans Ray Sharkey (7"he /do/maker, and TV's Wiseguy) and Helen Shaver (True Believers, The Color of Money). (R) REVIVALS SHERLOCK, JR. (1927) Buster Keaton directed and starred i this silent comedy classic about a film projectionist who yearns to be a detective. He fulfills, his desires, at least in part, when he falls asleep on the job and dreams of being Scotland Yard's super sleuth. Considered by many to be Keaton's best work.

60 : T A G E Democratic dramatics Voters control fate of Villagers' 'Edwin Drood' ByWILLJAMWESTHOVEN WeekendPlus Editor fere's no better way to cel- I ebrate democracy than to vote. And this week, there are two opportunities to exercise your right as an American. Hopefully, you've already voted once. Shame on you if you haven't. But either way, you'll get a second chance on Friday, Nov. 6, when the Villagers Theatre in Somerset presents the popular Broadway musical the Mystery of Edwin Drood. Along with the off-broadway hit Tony and Tina's Wedding, which mixes audience with actors in a production beginning in a church and ending in a reception hall, Drood has helped to popularize the notion of audience participation in theater. In the case of Drood, which is based on an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens, the audience doesn't participate in a physical sense, but their involvement is even more crucial. Taking advantage of Dicken's unfinished business, author Rupert Holmes came up with the bright idea of letting the audience choose how the play ends. Following a climactic scene, the audience takes a vote on how the play should end, and the play resumes to complete the desires of the majority rule. The show originated in 1985 as part of the New York Shakespeare Festival's plays in the park series, and was so well-received it was moved to Broadway's Imperial Theatre, where it went on to win a Tony for Best Musical. Although Dicken's novel was originally a dark mystery, Holmes, a successful composer and pop musician (remember "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)"), turned it into a lively musical with touches of vaudeville. It's also a "play-within-a-play" as the plot is presented acted out by a "Victorian English Music Hall Troupe," and overseen by "the Chairman," who introduces the characters and narrates the story. And what a bunch of characters they are! When Edwin Drood, played by Tracey Fama, disappears, foul play is suspected. The fun is deciding who is responsible, and the audience is presented with a host of potential perpetrators Drood's uncle John Jasper (Patrick Andrae), who Curtain calls NOW PLAYING BRUNDAGE PARK PLAYHOUSE Carrell Rd., Randolph (201) *17ie Diary of Anne Frank, drama adapted from the diary she kept while hiding from the Nazis.

61 Theater review Weekend Home alone A sheltered soul redefines reality in Idioglossia' By WILLIAM WESTHOVEN WeekendPlus Editor Idioglossia, which premiered Friday at the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick. (and continues through Nov. 15), is like a prime rib sandwich what's inside is so tasty, who needs the bread? The meat, in this case, is the fascinating story of Nell, an adult woman isolated in a tiny room of a rural cabin, where her mother has kept her since birth. But when her mother dies, Nell is discovered and her situation is reported to a team of scientists, who are eager to study her and the curious language she has seemingly invented for herself. "Everything that has ever affected her is in that room," says T.C., the clinical lady psychologist, while trying to recruit Jake, a disillusioned colleague and former lover, for the research team. "It's a totally controlled situation." Jake, who is living in his own self-imposed isolation (his dingy apartment, large enough for a television, easy chair and cache of beer, is one of three sets on the stage), reluctantly joins the team, but soon becomes enthusiastic, even obsessed with his new patient. While T.C. and fellow scientist Claude observe from a side room in the cabin via closed-circuit cameras and monitors, Jake engages Nell in her room. At first, she doesn't even acknowledge his presence as she performs her ritual movements and phrasings. Eventually, though, they begin to communicate on a primitive level, and the more they learn about her, the more Jake begins to question their motives. Is she really in need of help, or is her language and behavior the natural result of her environment? "She'll become a symbol for whatever you're trying to prove," Jake complains to his colleagues, who fail to develop the same emotional attachment to Nell that eventually forces Jake to forsake the project. Along the way, certain telling facts are revealed, like how T.C. (Allison Janney) tries to comfort and inspire Jake (Steven Keats), her former colleague and lover, in the George Street Playhouse production of Idioglossia. her language is one of idioglossia a psyhcological condition between twins in which they share made-up words although to reveal how they discover she's a twin would be to spoil a surprise. You'll have to go see the play if you want the answer. And yes, for that reason and much more, Idioglossia is a 'It's the Wnof of play that when it's over, the first thought that comes to mind is that you might want to see it again. There's so much to absorb, it's hard to do it all in just one sitting. play well worth seeing. Nell is a mesmerizing character who gives as well as she gets during the study. The more she learns from her observers, the more she teaches them in return. And it's more than charming innocence Nell's may be a world of limitation, but her insight and understanding of that world is almost enviable. She's certainly in more control of her life, such as it is, than any of the scientists. Of course, Nell, with her Clockwork Orange vocabulary and unique perspective, is a demanding character, but Deanna Deignan is up to the challenge. Her remarkable performance is clearly the biggest asset of the production. Onstage from start to finish (and even before the curtain and between acts), her presence is so enthralling that even when the action leaves her room, it's difficult to turn your focus elseware. In fact, her constant presence onstage is perhaps a bit too much, as what happens outside the room is often rendered insignificant. Virtually none of the characters or subplots generate any interest outside of her room, which dominates the stage, opening like a giant mouth towards the audience in abstract fashion. Part of the problem is the set design itself Nell's room is so large, it appears designed to overwhelm. Jake's apartment is shoehorned into one corner, while the cabin's observation room is squeezed into another. Another problem is the script, which abandons the actors whenever they leave the room. Riddled with "what is love?" cliches and stiff monolgues, writer Mark Handley provides little more than perfunctory background on the supporting characters via these sideline exchanges, which threaten the momentum of the story at several turns. As a result, T.C. (Allison Janney) and Claude (Betsy Palmer, who plays aunt Ginny on Knot's Landing) are a distraction for most of the night it would be interesting to see Idioglossia staged as a two-character play. Fortunately, both Janney and Palmer get a chance to interact with Nell inside the room near the end, and both, finally given the opportunity, prove their ability before the final curtain. Steven Keats, who plays Jake with a crusty passion, also supports the inside-outside theory with a two-headed effort Outside the room, his delivery (again, due largely to the dialogue) is a little forced; inside the room with Nell, his performance goes into high gear you feel the excitement of his approach to salvation as his connection to Nell continues to flower. But the positives far outweigh the negatives and it's the kind of play that when it's over, the first thought that comes to mind is that you might want to see it again there's so much to absorb, it's hard to do it all in one sitting. Dramatic, insightful and thought-provoking, with occasional sprinkles of genuine humor, Idioglossia is yet another splendid excuse to visit George Street Curtain calls (Continued from page 16) WESTMINSTER CHOIR COLLEGE 101 Walnut Lane, Princeton (609) British Affairs,; one-woman show with Diana Crane. 4 p.m. Nov. 8.

64 V E NT A colorless exhibition New Brunswick's Palette Place Gallery celebrates the world of black and white By WILLIAM WESTHOVEN WeekendRus Editor When there's nothing left but black and white, imagination is the key to colorization. And when an artist working with black and white wants to make an impact with the public, the challenge is to project his own imagination to stimulate that of his audience. The challenge of black and white art is the motivation behind the fourth annual Black and White Exhibition and Juried Show currently being planned by the Palette Place Art Gallery in New Brunswick. Open to all artists in all media, entries will be accepted Nov Results will be available by Nov. 15, while the formal reception and awards presentation will take place on Dec. 12. The exhibition will then continue until Jan. 23. Space restrictions forced the Palette Place to move last year's exhibition to the George Street Playhouse, where it enjoyed a successful run. But this year, owner Joyce Browning was able to move to a larger space in the same building at 103 Bayard St. she was in last year, so the exhibition returns to it's home in The Palette Place has had a nomadic existence since opening on the North Brunswick end of Livingston Avenue in 1985, but it has always championed the work of young, up-and-coming artists. Browning, a former teacher and an artist in her own right, started the gallery for just that reason. "After spending time trying to get in galleries, which was a lot of work, I thought I could help myself as well as other artists in the same position," she said. "It started out as a space for local artists, but after a while, local artists became Indiana." An especially popular feature of the gallery in the early days was a regular schedule of one-man shows, which many galleries avoid in favor of general or theme-oriented exhibitions that traditionally draw a larger audience. And while the Palette Place has also cut back on one-man shows, Browning insists on presenting at least one every year. Appropriately enough, this year's one-man show, which is currently on display and continues through Nov. 14, is an exhibition of black and white abstract paintings by Somerset artist Robert Palestino, who makes strong use of logical, geometric, sculptural and harmonic elements. "A black and white exhibition is unsuaul for a gallery, and I chose it primarily for that reason," said Browning. "I wanted people to realize it still existed, there was never really a 'black and white' period for artists, but it's recognized as a dificult medium. You can trick the eye with color, but you can't with black and white. As an artist, you really have to know your stuff. "Black and white also has a classic quality, and it forces you to use your imagination. I know I use my imagination more when I watch an old black and white movie." Gallery hours at the Palette Place are 4-8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday. The nonprofit Friends of the Palette Place also sponsor several events like the recent seminar "Art and the Law," which discussed such relevant topics as copywright laws, public domain art and computerart usage.

66 O O K S Chapter and verse for young readers A sampling of children's books for early holiday shoppers By VALERIE DRACH-WEIDMANN WeekendPtus Writer e's a vast difference between what books do for children and what they do for adults. Adult books have the challenging job of opening up somewhat set minds, while juvenile literature needs only to lead children responsible into new worlds they eagerly enter without doubt or prejudice. Whether books take them to the com fields of New Mexico or to Peter Pan's Neyer-Never Land, small ones are ready to embrace new cultures or a world of fantasy. The following new pre-holiday selections might even carry off an adventurous adult or two. Hoang Breaks the Lucky Teapot By Rosemary K. Breckler Illustrated by Adrian Frankel Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company Ages: 4-7. Hardcover $13.95 When Hoang leaves his native Vietnam, his grandmother bestows on him a treasure, the family teapot that shelters their good luck. However, this tiny boy with a large imagination rights dragons in his new American kitchen and accidentally smashes the teapot, allowing their May Man (good fortune) to spill across the floor. But a great imagination can also do much good and Hoang figures out a way to preserve the beautiful designs on his cherished gra truyen (teapot) and restore the good luck of his family. The Widow's Broom By Chris Van Allsburg Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company All Ages. Hardcover $17.95 With haunting amber colored prints, Van Allsburg answers an intriguing question what happens to a witch's broom when it starts to lose its powers? Van Allsburg's broom, which is physically no more than a wooden pole and a tied up bunch of straw, has more humanity than many people. His delightful realistic drawings of the broom fetching water with its solitary limb, menacingly brandishing a axe or rapturously playing the piano will absorb readers young and old. ATurnForNoahsAHanukkahStory By Susan Remick Topeek Illustrated by Sally Springer Rockville: Kar-Ben Copies, Inc. Ages: 2-5. Paperback $4.95 Not even the life of a four-year-old is easy. Noah desperately wants to be able to spin a dreidel and light the Hanukkah candles in his nursery school class, but throughout the holiday week nothing seems to go smoothly for him. Author Susan Remick Topeek is herself a nursery school teacher who has captured life in the classroom where she has smoothed the ruffled feathers of many a child like Noah.

As you read this story, its hypnotic voice leads you through a small village with its friendly plaza, adobe brick houses and introduces you to mothers, fathers and children who value their lives, clothing, food and most of all the land that sustains them. Franklin Delano Roosevelt By Russell Freedman New York: Clarion Books Ages: Softcover $7.95 Photos straight from the front pages of history show a strong and heroic president who lead his country through two of the most trying dilemmas of the 20th century the Depression and World War II Roosevelt, although he was born into the wealthy class, the only child of a doting father old enough to be his grandfather, was always the president of the "little man."

68 T U S I Postcards from the underground Pre-punk heroes Television and Brian Eno return from the 70s with strong records By BILL MILLARD WeekendPlus Writer We saw it a couple of years ago when Thomas Pynehon, after 16 years of near-total silence following his magnum opus, reappeared with another mind-boggling contemporary-historical novel (Fine- Jand) as if he'd never been gone. We'll undoubtedly see it this winter when Magic Johnson rejoins the NBA, limited schedule or no limited schedule. Gall it Pynchon- Johnson syndrome, then: the odd effect that occurs when a major artist vanishes from public view, then picks up the career pretty close to exactly where he left off, hitting the ground running and making everybody wonder what was going on in the meantime. It's at least as rare in rock and roll, where comebacks usually mean either sellouts, rehashes, limp imitations, or at best weird new mutations. Two artists that dominated the 1970s and helped shape the 1980s even though they basically took the 1980s off are back with impressive new records. The definitive Lower Manhattan new-wave band, Television, has a new release, known simply as Television (Capitol), that sounds... well, a lot like the first two Television records. Producer/theoretician/performer Brian Eno, who many believe was at least as influential in his quirky solo career as in his work with Bowie or U2 or Robert Fripp or whomever, is back in the stores with Nerve Net (Opal); this one isn't as close a sonic match with his old stuff, but it's just as obliquely strategized, just as open to the eerie possibilities of randomness. Both of these releases will be tremendous news for old listeners, and both ought to give new ones some idea of what their older brothers and sisters used to rave about. In a sense, Television never exactly disbanded. Since leader Tom Verlaine's work moved in similar directions throughout the band's lost decade, a lot of his best solo discs were still Television music, just without all the Television personnel. What was missing from the Verlaine projects, though the interplay with Richard Lloyd on second guitar is back in spades, defining Television instantly as a landmark guitarist's record. Verlaine's still writing deadly, subtle hooks, the kind of melodies that make perfect sense but are never obvious. There aren't too many drop-dead rockers like "See No Evil" from Marquee Moon or "Glory" from Adventure, but the interlocking licks of "In World" (with Lloyd taking an astonishingly eloquent solo) develop plenty of force, and the rapid street swing of "Beauty Trip" will make it an incredible long-distance driving song. Bands with two gifted guitarists can get mighty crowded, but Verlaine and Lloyd have always been able to make the most of open spaces in their phrasings, staying out of each other's way when necessary, building supporting structures for each other when possible. Verlaine's fascination with impenetrable noir lyrics, great spooky spymovie stuff, comes out on things like "Call Mr. Lee," among frantic leads over minor chords ("Call Mr. Lee/He'll know the code is broken/ Tell him the dog'% turning red"). Whatever that means, it gives you the deep creeps. And "The Rocket," all hyperactive drums by Billy Kcca and edgy distortion by Verlaine, will scramble a roomful of brains. But rftost of Television sounds upbeat in ways it's seemed impossible for 24' Fortes Ne*«pdpets Ndvernber 4-6J Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd, Fred Smith and Billy Ficca, also known as Television, are back with their first album since the early days of the New York punk scene, when they ruled Manhattan along with Talking Heads, Blondi and the Ramones. Lower East Side bohemians of recnet years to sound. With the threeway tension among Verlaine's understated voice, the band's effortless collective grooves, and the twin guitars' wildness, this is the kind of record you won't just put on and hear; you'll explore it. It's indispensible for anyone who relishes the possibilities four-piece rock offers to a band of smart, unpretentious pros. If Television stretches the envelope for the guitar-bass-drums setup, Eno's new record stretches it for electronic music of various genres. The self-proclaimed "non-musician" has an uncanny ear for elements of funk, rap, art rock, techno/industrial, and world beat that will combine into something oddly seamless. As he did on what I'd identify on his best work, the mid-to-late-1970s albums Another Green World and Before and After Science, he's thrown some weird talents together (guitar stars of markedly different types like Robert Quine, Jamie West-Oram, and old pal Robert Fripp; mixmaster Markus Drews; various African horn and percussion sections; ringers like Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Heartbreaker Benmont Tench; plenty of people no one has heard of). He's given minimal instructions about arrangements; he's played berserk technical tricks with the tapes; he's let the results fall as they may. And his unique talent is to pull off something this improbable in a way that makes people think and dance. Eno's sense of syncopation is as overdetermined as anybody's on the planet, with the Producer/theoretician/performer Brian Eno. possible exception of Captain Beefheari He can "arrange" a track with no real chord progression and nothing resembling a melody, then play a set of Morse chord keys as a rhythm instrument ("What Actually Happened?") or wash a set of densely filtered, incomprehensible vocals across the polyrhythms ("Fractal Zoom"): the resulting "song" is invariably captivating. If "postmodern" doesn't seem like a dirty word, this is probably just your cup of tea (properly spiked, of course). Some of these tunes have better grooves than anything you'll hear in a dance club, like the slightly scrambled seventh-chord jazz-funk of "Ali Click" or the congadriven rumble of "Distributed Being" (pierced by a breakneck Fripp solo). None will bore a careful listener. All of them will provoke thought. Music notes George St. Project concert premiere The wide-ranging influences of the George Street Project jazz ensemfcte can be heard on Saturday, Nov. 8, when composer/ pianist Vmee OiMyn* leads the group in concert at the Presbyterian Ctwcb of New Brunswick, DiMura, who also serves as artistic director, founded the George Street Project in 1989, and over the past three years, the #oup has promoted the rebirth of 'third stream" music, a 1 style popularized in the 1960s ty Gurtther Scriulter.

I knew that when vintners first started making wine in California, they didn't have many French oak barrels, and the wines would often be put in these large wooden tanks to age. When the importance of oak cooperage became apparent, these redwood monsters were used just to hold wine while it was waiting for a small oak barrel to become available. My tour guide informed me that their tanks were used just for that purpose; to hold any leftover wines from their other bottlings. Often, the wine was from their very exclusive, expensive special cask bottlings. "What would the leftover wine be used for?" I inquired. "Usually, it is blended into our Proprietor's Reserve label. People don't realize that when they buy that bottle, they are getting some pretty incredible wine." Weil, 1 got excited. Proprietor's Reserve is a term that doesn't have a specific meaning. It doesn't speak of a certain vineyard, or a length of time in a cask. In fact, because they tend to be the most afforable of wines in a wineries lineup, they are often perceived as ordinary table wines with no specific merit. The best definition of a Prop. Reserve may be that it's a wine that the winemaker made to satisfy his personal tastes. But, now that I know the quality of the grapes being used to produce them, it sheds a whole different light on the subject! My homework this week (and feel free to join me in the venture) is to try the Proprietor's Reserve labels of as many wineries as I can find. And I will report these findings back to you next week. Maybe we've hit a gold mine!

The main section, built over 300 years ago, contains the Blane Room (named after a former owner, Dr. Blane, who lived there in the 1800s) on the first floor and a large cherry banquet room on the second. Both rooms have beautiful large fireplaces, an open beam ceiling on the large handhewn timbers. One of the fireplaces, built of fleldstone, is 6 V2- feet tall, 9-feet wide and Meet deep. Two other wings, added more than 130 years ago, also contain dining rooms and a banquet room in the true old world tradition. The owners, Jim Russo, George Myers and Palmer Russo, keeping with the tradition of former owners, have increased the size of the restaurant again by adding a large banquet facility seating 200 persons for weddings, corporate and business functions and private parties. This room will also be used for ballroom dancing, with music of the big band era, throughout the year on scheduled Saturday nights. Other events include Friday night dancing with live bands and special German festivals in the spring. There are 10 hot and cold appetizers, soup or salads to choose from including Caesar salad prepared table side. The average price of an appetizer ranges from $647. All entrees are served with a tossed mixed green salad and a choice of two from potato du jour, homemade spaetzle (noodles), fresh vegetables du jour or rice pilaf. There are many ways to come and go to Coach N' Paddock. There is a heliport on the grounds as well as a hot air balloon landing area for diners (weather permitting). Surrounded by manicured grounds and rolling hills, our beautiful stately manor house is a genial spot to enjoy a fine German- American fare for lunch, dinner or Sunday Brunch.

The present owner, N** Germak, changed the name and menu when he first opened in April of last year. He said he wasrrt sure what type of food his clientele would prefer so he started off with standard American/ Continental fare. After being open for six months, he realized he made a mistake. He said his customers were too sophisticated for ordinary fare. With that in mind, he hired a new chef and revised the menu to serve mainly Italian dishes. Since then, his business has increased 130 percent and he is planning to add on a banquet room. Nick Is a young man with years of experience in the restaurant business who enjoys what he is doing and could probably speak for hours about various restaurants in New Jersey. Nick also owns Parkside Catering in Berkeley Heights. He travels back and forth to each place. Both establishments have a large staff and Nick is proud of his low turnover ratio of employees. The Cokesbury Inn was built in 1835 and a lot of refurbishing was done both inside and out to restore it to its original decor. The entrance way has the wide plank floors and the two dining rooms (smoking and nonsmoking) have several fireplaces. There is the ou fashioned tin on the ceiling and half-way down the walls. Nick said the tin wasn't part of the original building but was installed in 1877 alter a fire. The menu is interesting and the prices are reasonable. Chef Peter Klepchick is a Johnson and Wales graduate with several years of experience. His menu is a mixture of both classical and southern Italian, Tex-Mex (chicken and steak fajitas), cajun (cajun calamari and blackened chicken salad) and American. The average price of an entree is $11-$15 and the most expensive items are the steaks (filet mignon for $16.95). Appetizers consist of dams casino ($5.50), cajun calamari ($4.50), chicken tenderloins ($4.95) and beef satav ($4.95). There are four salads ($3.95 for a house said to $5.95 for roasted peppers and mozzarella) and two soups. Pasta choices (six in all) can be ordered as an appetizer ($4.95-$5.95) cr as an entree ($795-$9.95). Choices include rigatoni, liinguine, penne, fettuam, cavatelli and broccoli and a tri-cokxed tortehini sauteed in a gorgonzola cream sauce ($8.95). Entrees include two veal selections ($12.95), five chicken dishes ($10.95-$14.95 for a grilled chicken and shrimp gorgonzola), sauteed Norwegian Salmon ($12.95), stuffed sole du jour ($11.95), shrimp scampi ($12.95), and four beef choices ($12.95-$16.95 for filet mignon or steak au powre). All entrees are served with a house salad, vegetables and starch or pasta dujour.

MIDDLESEX COUNTY Love A Harbor View? Love A Great Time? Love Seafood? 200 Front Street Perth Amboy, ix.d (908) STRIPES AN AMERICAN S\EA AT Where Fun Just Happens "On The Waterfront" GRILL

81 A Forbes Newspapers Supplement MIDDLESEX COUNTY Dine-Out/Nov. 4-6,1992/Page 5 THE BARGE (908) Front Street, Perth Amboy, N.J. The Barge Restaurant in Perth Amboy has a lot of things going for it. Not only does it serve excellent seafood which is delivered daily (shipped from Maine to distributor in the Highlands), but it is located across the street from the revitalized waterfront. A night of dining at The Barge should include a walk along the waterfront. It is a splendid view of Raritan-Bay, and a romantic interlude as well. The restaurant has been in existence for over 60 years; the last 10 years by owners George and Tom Nickolas. George's wife Delores, who is also the hostess, told us that it was once a floating barge, but a fire destroyed it, and was rebuilt at the present location. If you want to know more of the history of the Barge, I suggest you stop in and visit with Alex Vocinakhas the bartender and son-in-law of George. He has been working there longer than the present owners and knows the history. Raritan Bay is a natural resource that has been neglected for years. I'm glad to see that some towns, like Perth Amboy, recognize this and are doing something to clean it up. The restaurant has dark wood paneling, green carpeting, captains chairs and laminated tables. There are several game fish hanging from the walls that add to its old-fashion seafood establishment look. To take advantage of the view, there are three large bow bay windows in front. Ask for a table with a view of the water; it will put you in just the right mood for seafood. Because The Barge is located next to the bay, seafood is the obvious specialty. Seafood entrees can be broiled. The menu also includes Italian dishes, steak, chops and London broil. Dinners include potato, vegetable or salad. The Barge offers solid, old-fashion seafood, prepared expertly in sizable portions. Prices are reasonable, and the service is friendly and informal. For a seafood dinner at the north end of the Jersey shore, the Barge is the place to go. And don't forget the walk along the waterfront GL, 2 FOR 1 SUNDAY THRU FRIDAY ( $ 15 Max.

There is an additional charge of $1 for any pasta served with meat or seafood. In addition to the pasta dishes, the menu also has the baked pasta choices (zrb, shells, msnicotn, lasagna and eggplant). These range in price from $8.95 for baked ztt to $11.95 for eggplant SUSan There is a large selection of entrees, including 18 seafood choices from $835 for garlic calamari or fried flounder to market price for stuffed lobster. Most of the seafood selections cost anywhere from $ Meat entrees include five chicken ($7.95- $10.95), four veal ($11.95-$13.95) and six choices of steak or chops ($ ). AH entrees include a salad, bread and choice of baked potato, French fries or pasta. One of the first things owner Larry Ricenuto did was hire chef Justine Albanese who has 15 years of experience as a cook. Some of Albanese's selections are basic and some not so basic. For example, there is the chicken and veal parmigiana or francaise, but also stuffed calamari (with crabmeat) and garlic pork chops. Some of his sauces are pink cheese, oreganato, marsala cream, basil cream, pink ricotta and matridana. These are definitely not sauces you will find in most restaurants.

83 A Forbes Newspapers Supplement MIDDLESEX COUNTY Dine-Out/Nov. 4-6,1992/Page 7 GRAND FORTUNE GARDEN 716 Oak Tree Ave., South Plainfield The Grand Fortune Gatien Chinese Restaurant has several things going for it, including good food, but there are two items worth mentioning. One is their new Chinese buffet on Sunday nights from 4-9 p.m. tor only $10.95, and two is their sincere friendliness. Owners Victor Chen and his wife Cathy, along with their manager Joe Chen, greet their customers as if they have know them all their Kves. And, based on what I observed, their customers are all regulars who in face do know the Chens. They are all on a first-name basis. This loyalty of customers is unique in a business so competitive as are restaurants in general and Chinese restaurants in particular. This can a% mean consistency In food and strvtce and comfortableness in atmosphere. This is exactly what the Grand Fortune G*deri has to offer its patrons. Observe the letters of recommendation decorasng the front window as you enter the restaurant One customer revels in the fact that h» and his wife have ordered General Tos chicken** least a hundred times since the nataurant's opening seven days ago. Tha atonsphere is fairly consistent with.other Chinese restaurants with banners hang- Ing on the wal, but it is much larger and more Irrtmat*. Once a smal store with only 10 table*, It expanded by adding on the two next to it. The addition uses folding screens to separate tables from each other for a more comfortable setting.' A nice touch is at the entrance to the restaurant where Victor has imported chairs from Taiwan fa customers who wait to be seated. Another deeght is the ladies' room with blow dryers and a baby change station, a definite hit with, ail the housewives. The buffet, which has been running for a while, consist of your choice of soup, appetizers such as egg rolls and spare ribs and 14 different entrees from shrimp chow mein, vegetable io mein, eggtooyoung, beef and seafood entrees and chef specialities such as General To's chicken. Items on the buffet change regularly and if you go there often, enough you are likely to taste everything on the large menu. Another item worth mentioning is the imported Chinese fruits, not sold in stores, that are offered with the buffet Fruits, such as lychees, longans and loquats (little orange and white balls) soaking in their own juices, are a delightful touch to the buffet Visiting the Grand Fortune Garden, whether with one or two friends, you have a choice of 14 different Chinese dishes to taste and savor. Grand Fortune Garden is open seven days a week, takeout included, Monday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m.: and Sunday, noon-10 p.m. No Exp.

Broad St., Westfield Victor and Cathy Chen, the owners of the Grand Fortune Garden in South Plainfield, have expended their operation; they opened their second Chinese restaurant, the China Light in Westfield. Competition in the restaurant business is intense, but competing in Chinese food is brutal. Probably every town in New Jersey has two or more Chinese restaurants or take-out service. Victor and Cathy compensate for this by paying attention to detail. Their restaurants are not ordinary by anyone's standard. Observe the imported chairs in the front area or the wooden sign hanging on the back wat with the year in Chinese. Notice the embroidered tapestry hanging in the front window. Want some more examples? The dividers are made of teak wood that resemble wood carvings. The restaurant is in downtown Westfield and in between two other stores, consequently no side windows. Victor created what looks like framed windows but inserted colored etched glass. One worth noting is a map of New Jersey with stars denoting South Plainfield and Westfield, the locations of their two restaurants. Each little detail has that "Chen" touch that makes their restaurants unique. Even their garnishes are beautifully arranged. Victor and Cathy take great pleasure in pleasing their customers. Their sincere friendliness is one of the reasons they do so well. China Light's menu is large, with over 140 items from which to choose. Chefs Specialties (21 in all) cost from $9.94-$ Pork, poultry and beef selections average $8-$9. Seafood choices cost $9.25-$ There is also an assortment of fresh garden selections ($6.25-$6.95), appetizers $1.20- $5.50) and soup ($1.20-$4.55). Dining with the Chens is a pleasant experience. The service at China Light is excellent, the food good, the atmosphere unique and stunning and the prices outstanding.

Plainfield How's this for a party shopping list: 1,000 pounds of London broil; 2,000 small pizzas, t,500 tacos, 200 dozen rolls, 10 cases of lettuce, seven cases of tomatoes, six kegs of birch beer, and about a ton of All this and more went into one of Leon's Catering Service's latest jobs - a two-day corporate party which fed,000 people from individual buffet tables under gaily striped tents. The buffets included Italian, Mexican, American and Ghinese cuisine as well as a Viennese pastry table. "That party was probably the biggest job we ever had" says Morris Egert, ownerof Leon's at 135 Somerset St. in North Plainfield. But this 30-year-old catering operation isn't only for large parties. Stop by the shop early in the day and you'll see platters of meats and cheeses, bowls of salads, and trays of cookies ready to be delivered to corporations and organizations for afternoon lunches and parties. Some of the meal packages waiting to be delivered serve as few as five people. Everything is fresh. Platters and salads are beautifully garnished. Cookie plates are designed in colorful patterns. "We try to do things with a little schmaltze, even it it's just sandwiches," Egert says. Sometimes that style comes with catered meals for two - Valentine's Day or a special breakfast to a bride on her wedding day are two examples from Ron Boreshia, one of Leon's managers. Small parties is just how Leon's began. "We started with little platters and sandwiches for clients and grew", says Nancy Nadler, catering manager. The heart of the catering operation and something Egert says is unique in the business is Leon's Catering Catalog - a 24-page booklet listing everything Leon's will do for you. It includes executive chef Richard Vieth's menus for cocktail parties, hot and cold buffets, luaus, barbecues, smorgasbords, gourmet meals, box lunches, omelet parties, sandwich trays, corporate luncheons, and large formal dinners and luncheons. Leon's also will handle rentals, cakes, decorations and service. The catalog (available win just a phone call) allows customers to design their own party based on their budgat and personal style. "Whether you want to buy a Ford or a Lincoln, it's all in the catalog," Egert says. Egert says Leon's is able to cater so many types of affairs because it has the right equipment Often supplies include portable ovens, field stoves and refrigerated trucks. "You have to prepare foods at the job," Egert says, "pizza has to be hot, hots d'oeuvres have to be crisp. But you don't have to plan a party to take advantage of Leon's expertise. Recently, Leon's began stocking refrigerated and frozen dinners for two in their shop. The 12 dinners for two selections include roast turkey with stuffing ($8), veal cutlet parmigiana with linguine ($14), stuffed flounder with shrimp and crabmeat and mixed vegetables ($12), and prime ribs of beef with mashed potatoes ($14).

Today it is a restaurant that can accommodate almost 1,000 people at any given time. Recently completed and opened to the public was a ballroom able to accommodate up to 500 people. Felix Protos has owned the restaurant since 1972 with his brother John and brother-in-law Nick Papadakis. "We started out small and grew through the years. It was a lot of work," said Protos. But the work has paid off, for McAteer's is one of the few restaurants that has people making reservations for well into the new year. Protos and his partners began their expansion plans about two years ago and put their efforts not only into the construction but also into the interior design of the new banquet hall. The rich coral and teal carpet was shipped from Georgia and the many chandeliers are made of Italian crystal. Solid oak wood and detailed moldings on the walls of the ballroom are just a few of the many attributes of the addition. Despite the new addition, Protos does not want anyone to forget about the elegant dining that has always been a trademark at McAteer's. The American continental cuisine at McAteer's is reasonably priced. Lunch is served between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Entrees are priced between $5 and $7. The dinner menu has a wide selection of items ranging from lobster to blackened salmon to prime rib or veal Oscar. These well-portioned entrees run between $16 and $21.

H has been open for 21 yeats now. Many have opened since then, but not all have survived. O'Connor's has survived because the staff does what they do best, and that is serve quality beef in pleasant surroundings at affordable prices. There is nothing fancy on their menu so you wont find nouvete cuisine here. Forget about cajun or French cooking; they prefer to leave that type of cooking to others. The emphass here has always been on good ingredients and freshness. The steaks come from their' own retail butcher shop on the premises and the fish is purchased dasy. Another attraction that has withstood the test of ttme is their SHtem sated and bread bar that is included with ah tinners. The building itself is a survivor. Dating back to the middle 1800s, i started as a restaurant and inn for entertainers who traveled to and from New York. Past visifeois included the comic team of laurel and Hardy, Mae West and heavyweight champion Jack Oempsey. A story on the menu tells that when the restaurant was being built, "dozens of colonial musketballs, wagon wheels, and rings of stone for campfires, were unearthed. General manager Owignt Newel once told me that underground tunnels used during prohtoition are still intact On one wall is the original brick facade reminiscent of the 19th century architecture. The other walls are draped with light-colored wallpaper and set off with a chair rail around the entire room. A brass rail with green valance separates the country style dining areas. O'Connor's has recently become known for arranging and catering excellent weddings and banquets. The banquet rooms are bright and aiy with a touch of formality. As in the restaurant, hospitality takes center stage. O'Connor's menu has eight appetizers from potato skins ($455) to a dozen Me neck steamers ($8.95). Surf and turf for ($26.95), two choices of chicken ($ ), and veal parmesan ($13.95). The balance of the menu is devoted to beef. There are 11 different choices. If confused about the different cuts of beef, there is a display case in the foyer that displays the items available on the menu Whether dining with a spouse or date, family, or group of friends, O'Connor's is the place to try, particularly if you are in the mood for good beef.

The Willows believes in that old axiom "«it aint broke, don't fix it." In business for over 12 years, Willows succeeds by doing what it does best. And what it does best is provide its customers with good food, good service and all.at good prices. This is not haute or nouvelle cuisine. It is your basic continental menu with the emphasis on solid cooking and large quantities. Specialties of the house are beef and chops and a mixture of veal, liver, capon and roast turkey. There is also a large selection of seafood items, 17 in total, ranging from broiled, fried, or newburg and fra diavolo. The average price for a dinner is $13.00 to $14.00 with the lowest $9.95 for broiled flounder and the highest $23.95 for broiled Alaskan king crab legs. All entrees are served with a tossed green salad, or Greek salad, vegetable and choice of potato or rice pilaf. The dining room is large, but intimate dining is available in one of the booths along the front wall, at comer tables or in the bar/lounge area. The clientele dining the. night we were there consisted of small and large families, couples and what seemed like steady customers because the waitresses knew them by name. The mood was very festive. Patrons are ushered to a table by a mai're'd who informs them of the specials of the night and surprisingly, the prices of each special. The piece de resistance is the flaming fruit tray. This item, consisting of slices of melon, bananas, watermelon, orange and pineapple, served on a bed of ice with a flame of brandy, comes with the entree, at no extra cost. There are other desserts such as parfaits, peach melba, ice cream and homemade cheesecake, but probably ordered only by the hearty eaters. A visit to The Willows is not only inviting but can be entertaining as well with the top 40's tunes being played for your listening and dancing pleasure Tuesday through Saturday, and golden oldies on Sunday. The bar remains open until 2 a.m. seven days a week, and a special light bar menu is available until closing.
