Mallow Kirk Moore Jim Reisler Terri Somers Neptune site of crime series It JEANNE JACKSON Press Coastal Monmouth Bureau THE SOUND OF Cl'M'IRE was deafening as the trooper crouched down and fired several rounds from his pistol as a spray of bullets whizzed over his shoulder. Hollywood met Neptune yesterday as the producers of the television show "America 't Most Wanted." rolled into town to film a re-enactment of a shootout that occurred in April between state trooper Michael J. Clayton Jr. and a twice-convK-ied armed robber from Asbury Pari. Police are still searching for Arthur Lee Washington, 39, formerly of Borden Avenue, in connection with the shootout. Washington was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List last month. Investigators from the state police and FBI were on hand yesterday to watch the filming and an FBI investigator said he plans to help man the tek-phones on Sunday after the Fox Television program airs at 8 p.m. on Channel 5. Police are hoping the program will help authorities find Washington. Viewers are asked to call I-80TMRIME-89 and the tips often tod to the arrest of suspects. Cosgrove said. The film crew spent from sun up to sun down yesterday re-enacting the events on Drummond Avenue. The street was closed nearly all day. Actor Morgan Margolis. who is portraying Clayton, was outfitted with a trooper's uniform and a new police car to re-enact the chase from West Lake Avenue to Drummond. Residents gathered in a group across the street as Margolis stood outside the replica of the Thundcrbird driven by Asbury Park resident Robert K. White and fired at an imaginary opponent Margolis stared as he aimed with an uncooperative gun that kept jamming in mid-sequence and people in the crowd jumped as gun fired blanks. A special effects man stood behind Margolis and fired a pellet gun at a car to create sparks that would look like the trooper was being shot at from across the street The film crew shot the sequence over and over again as producer Jeff Yonis had Margolis shoot the gun slowly, then quickly, then wait a beat between each shot After Margolis did his part the film Electric firms among 'points By BRETT WILKIN S Press Manahawkin Bureau TWO AREA electric companies demonstrate their commitment to the community with programs that help needy families pay their electric bills and keep warm during the winter, according to releases issued by the utilities. Since 1977, Jersey Central Power & Light Co. has been sponsoring Project Helping Hand, to aid those who cannot afford to pay their heating or electric bills. Atlantic Electric started a similar program, called the Good Neighbor Fund Campaign, in 1983. Since these two services began, more than $1,775,000 in grants have been presented to more than 13,600 families in a 13-county area, according to statements issued by the two utilities. Project Helping Hand is designed to Injured wife opts for settlement in By PAUL D'AMBROSIO Press Freehold Bureau A WOMAN who claimed her former husband put her in a coma for four months by driving away as she exited his truck, has settled her civil suit out of court for $400,000. Sharon Black, 34, of Upper Freehold Township, dropped her Superior Court suit against her ex-husband, Thomas Black, 40, after his automobile insurance firm agreed yesterday to the cash settlement said Ms. Black's lawyer, Eric J. Ludwig. of Princeton. The $400,000 will be paid in a lumpsum check within the next month, Ludwig said. As a condition of the settlement. Old cemeteries provide link to black history From page CI an oral history of being descendents of Lenape Indians and Afro-Americans. Some of the names on gravestones in the cemetery are well known in the area, Mrs. Morris said. For example, one of the Civil War veterans is Ronald Polhemus. Polhemus was the name of a Dutch family in Colts Neck Township that owned slaves, she said. Another gravestone commemorates Richard Reevey, who died in 1868 at age 83. The Reevey family is one of the oldest in Tinton Falls. A cemetery farther down the dirt road, maintained by area families, also dates to the 19th century. Ruth Grey, of Neptune, for example, has eight generations buned in the cemetery as well as her son. Mrs. Grey said family members have been upset because trucks going V A - ' - - - -i T" r CELESTE LA BftOSSEAtfuy Prt Pnu Actor Morgan Margolis, portraying state trooper Michael J.

Meanwhile, trooper Clayton stopped by to critique the performance and meet-his fictional counterpart "You need a haircut big-time," Clayton told Margolis. "Your sergeant would be all over you." Clayton, who was 2 1 at the time of the incident recalled that the shoot-out took place so quickly that he barely had time to react "It happened quickly." said Clayton, who is being interviewed for the show today. "You think abcut it later. He was walking across the street When he hit the curb, he turned, pulled (the gun) out of his pocket and started (shooting)." Margolis, 23. who has appeared in soap operas and on the "Equalizer," said he auditioned for the shoot-out before getting the part. "Anyone who docs that is definitely dangerous," Margolis said of Washington. help JCP&L customers who are unable to pay bills due to temporary unemployment, illness, or other financial emergency. "Since 1977, Project Helping Hand has recognized that such circumstances can affect anyone." said Eugene J. McCarthy, vice president of customer marketing services. "JCP&L believes that individuals who find themselves in such situations through no fault of their own deserve a helping hand." Since the program's inception. JCP&L has contributed more than $600,000 with outside donations topping $400,000, according to the company's news release. Two community action programs. Ocean Community Economic Action Now in Ocean County, and the Northwest Community Action Program, in the utility's north Jersey service area. Black and his insurance firm, Hartford Insurance Co., admitted no liability in the case, Ludwig said. Ms. Black claimed she was severely injured on the night of March 28, 1986, when she tried to step out of her husband's Ford Bronco pickup truck. Ludwig said the couple had been arguing in the vehicle as it was traveling down Davis Station Road, Upper Freehold Township, when "her husband pulled the Bronco over and ordered her to get out of the car." As Ms. Black began to exit the vehicle, her husband pulled away before both her feet were on the ground, he said. Ms. Black fell on her head, fractured her skull and wound up in a coma, Ludwig said. Focus back and forth to a nearby development being constructed have left huge potholes that have filled with water. The potholes made the road impassable and they have been unable to work at the cemetery, she said. Mrs. Grey said she would like to see both cemeteries declared historic sites and a paved road installed to them. Another cemetery that has Civil War veterans buried in it and several leaders of the black community is the White Ridge Cemetery on Wall Street, Eatontown. Mrs. Morris said the cemetery is the last vestige of an area that once was predominantly black and has since become dominated by middle-class whites. The cemetery is still in use and several clergymen and community leaders have begun an effort to raise $ 1 50,000 to clean and maintain it. Margolis said he's glad to be doing the show because he believes it provides a public service. State trooper Daniel Cosgrove, state police spokesman, said Washington is considered extremely dangerous because of the shoot-out and his history of violence. Washington was indicted in May by a Monmouth County grand jury on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, escape, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon in connection with the April 1 2 incident Police say the incident occurred when Clayton stopped a car with an expired inspection sticker. Washington, a passenger in the car, got out of the car and started walking away and Clayton yelled for him to stop. Clayton started moving toward Washington who then turned, pulled out a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun and opened fire, acceding to police. Lisa Kcljik, an associate producer of the program, said the program has led to the arrest of 75 people over the past year administer the program and screen applicants. These two organizations also distribute the money to those who arc approved for aid. JCP&L's program grants up to $250 to customers who have a record of timely bill payment There has been great response from the community, James F. Lowney, JCP&L spokesman said, adding that there have been nearly enough donations from the public to keep up with the demands for help. Donations still arc needed, however, and may be made payable to Project Helping Hand and mailed to the Jersey Central Power and Light Company, P.O. Box 1 10, Allenhurst, N.J. 0771 1. Atlantic Electric Co. sponsors the Good Neighbor fund annually, a program very similar to Project Helping Hand. Atlantic Electric works with the Black put his injured wife back in the truck and drove her to her mother's house, Ludwig said. A first aid squad and police were called, and Ms. Black was transported to Freehold Area Hospital, Freehold Township, he said. She laid in a coma for four months, he said. When Ms. Black awoke, doctors found she had suffered brain damage that left her with neurological and cognitive impairments that limit her ability to think in analytical terms, Ludwig said. She can walk only with the aid of a "quad-walker," or a four-prong cane, he said. Ludwig said despite her injuries, "she had a pretty good recovery." "It's only been in the last 30 years to my knowledge that blacks have been allowed to be buried in (white) cemeteries," said the Rev. Andrew Foster, pastor of the Shrewsbury Avenue AME Zion Church in Red Bank, and a member of the committee. "They have a historical value and it helps families maintain their heritage when you have families that have been here for three and four generations. We hope to make it so beautiful that people would want to be buried there," Foster said. In Ocean County, the Rose Hill Cemetery now called the Barnegat Cemetery in Barnegat Township is evidence of a rural black community that dates to the early 20th century, Wright said. The cemetery is on a hill at the end of a dirt road where several generations of black families are buried. Annie Logwood, a neighborhood resident since 1932, said local residents A r and actor Morgan Margolis said 87 percent of the cases aired lead to arrests. A tip from a television viewer in May led to the FBI's dramatic arrest in June of Robert Clark, who authorities say is John E. List. List, a former Westfield man. is wanted in connection with the 1971 murder of his mother, wife and three children. Authorities charge that List moved to Richmond, Va., where he lived under a different name with a new wife until a neighbor saw the case on the television show. The tip was one of 200 the FBI received after the May 2 1 broadcast "We've had very good luck," said an FBI agent, who declined to give his name. "One guy in San Diego surren-, dered after flagging someone down."

Black disputed his wife's version of events and claimed that during, the argument "She became hysterical and she jumped out of the vehicle as it was still moving," Ludwig said. Black's lawyer, William P. Kirkpa-trick, of Rumson, was unavailable for comment yesterday. J The couple were divorced last year, Ludwig said.
