uyft A3 Asbury Park PressThursday, May 19, 1994 A3 NEW JERSEY STATE Letting You are a juvenile. Your longtime lover, Alex, having acquired a new boyfriend Hector has told you to get lost. Lonely, depressed and very angry, you consult a psychiatrist to whom you reveal your most intimate secrets among them your intention to injure, perhaps to kill your replacement. Will your revelations be held in strictest confidence? The answer is yes, with one exception: The psychiatrist had better warn Hector of your intention. The law, and probably medical ethics, require that warning. Suppose, however, that you don't know anything about psychiatrists and couldn't afford one if you did. Intent on revenge, you assault Hector. Fortunately, he suffers no permanent damage. You are arrested and brought before a juvenile court judge, who learns that you have a serious emotional disorder making you a danger STATE Judge balks at altering rules on primary voting NEWARK: A federal judge said any change to the state's primary voting rules should come from the Legislature. U.S. District Judge Maryann Trump Barry on Tuesday rejected a request from 11th Congressional District GOP candidate Barry Fitzpa-trick to allow Democrats to vote Republican in the June 7 race. The only. Democratic candidate on the primary ballot is Holocaust revisionist and former Populist Party member John Kucek. Ex-chief admits telling officers to forgo arrest HACKENSACK: The former police chief of South Hackensack admitted in court yesterday he "advised" two officers not to arrest two young men found with a small amount of cocaine. The guilty plea by Arthur Montenegro was made to avoid jail by settling charges of official misconduct and obstruction of justice, which could have given him a 15-year prison term.

Kerr, ext. 4255 Managing EditorNews the light to others. Feeling abused and very angry, you claim your assault was justified and threaten to kill two other friends of Alex. The judge, after delivering a strong warning in response to your threat, orders 30 hours of community service, counseling and complete avoidance of Alex and her friends. MARTIN L. HAINES Will the judge advise the friends, or anyone else, of your threat? No. Juvenile court proceedings are designed for rehabilitation, not punishment. Disclosure is thought to be contrary to that goal. Why make the psychiatrist protect potential victims, but not the courts? Hakes By JIM HOOKER PRESS STATEHOUSE BUREAU TRENTON Assemblywoman Virginia E. Haines, R-Ocean, has been tapped by Gov. Whitman to serve as the state's next lottery executive director, the governor's office announced yesterday. Whitman's announcement confirmed months of speculation that she would pick Haines to serve as the next head of the $1.4 billion-a-year lottery agency. The long-anticipated move also opens the way for GOP front-runner James W. Holzapfel's selection for the Assembly seat, Republican officials say. Haines, a 47-year-old Shore area native who won a second, two-year term to the Assembly in November, would replace Frank M.. Pelly, a former Democratic assemblyman from Middlesex County. The nomination that Whitman intends to formally file in the coming days must be approved by the Republican-controlled Senate, which is expected to support the move. Under state law, members of the Ocean and Monmouth county Republican committees who live in the 10th District will vote to select a successor to fill Haines' Assembly seat temporarily. Because most of the district is in Ocean County, that committee is expected to control the vote. A special election for the seat will be held during the general election in November, said Albert Porroni, executive director of the Office of Legislative Services, the Legislature's nonpartisan research arm. Republicans say Holzapfel, a former Ocean County prosecutor who serves as labor counsel for the county, is the likely replacement for Haines. A number of other county Republicans, however, also are expected to vie for the seat. "Obviously (Holzapfel) would be a prime candidate, considering he's from Dover Township," said George R. Gil-more, a leader in the Ocean County GOP organization. "I would suspect the county committee . . . would give heavy consideration to selecting someone from Dover Township," which is both Haines' home and the most populated town in the district. . Gilmore also said Holzapfel's "track record as the Ocean County prosecutor" helps his candidacy. Holzapfel could not be reached for comment yesterday. Stamp act THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON The hubbub like to hear you! Jody Calendar DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR " Peter E. Donoghue, ext. 4265 Deputy Managing Editor (after 6 p.m.) 7T shine on juvenile court Do our rules make sense? They don't. The rule of court confidentiality is under attack. Bills introduced in our Legislature, if passed, will revoke the rule, or restrict it. A good i How do we weigh the juvenile's interest in protection against the same interest of the public? J idea? Many people think so. Many do not. Confidentiality has been our rule for generations. Resurrection, not punishment, is the central theme of our juvenile courts and we have thought, always, that confidentiality helps while disclosure destroys. We may be right. Surely, disclosure affects reputation. It can ostracize, destroy relationships and limit picked Other possible contenders include Brick Township Council President Mary Lou Powner, Dover Township Committeeman J. Mark Mutter, Carol Hedinger, a Toms River accountant, and Lisa Halpern, a Toms River attorney. Haines, of Toms River, would take over as lottery director on July 1, Whitman's office said. She would direct day-to-day operations of the agency that runs such games as Pick-6 Lotto and scratch-off instant games of chance. She said she would be paid about the same as Pelly, who earns $85,000 annually. In a written statement, Whitman cited Haines' "service in the Legislature, along with her activity at the local level" as the reasons behind the selection. The agency sold $1.4 billion in tickets last year, returning $600 million to the state treasury for education and senior citizens programs. Haines said that as director she would focus on increasing public awareness of the lottery. "I want to go around the state talking with people, making them aware of where the money goes," Haines said. She is steering clear at the moment of perhaps the two most controversial issues facing the lottery expansion into keno and video lottery games. Haines said she has not decided whether she would support either game. The games have come under fire here in recent years. While Haines said she is unsure whether keno will again be proposed, she said video lottery is "one topic I'm sure we'll be discussing." She said a bill sponsored by Sen. John H. Ewing, R-Somerset, is likely to stoke the issue again. She said more residents favor offering video lottery today than in the past and added that she could support such games if the Lottery Commission and Whitman did. Opponents of the games feared extending gambling into restaurants and bars and worried they would hurt casino and bingo revenues. Another controversy surrounding the Lottery Commission involves three firms with political ties vying for a lucrative five-year contract to run the lottery's computer operations for its 5,200-agent network. The bids by the three firms GTECH Corp., Automated Wagering mollifies N. J. senator over New Jersey's stamp snub appears to be over. New Jersey's omission from the U.S. Postal Service's World Cup commemorative package had angered Gov. Whitman and the state's congressional delegation. Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J., called postal officials two weeks ago to voice his objections. Lautenberg, who is seeking re-election, ended his opposition yesterday to an earlier compromise proposal after he said new postal items including New Jersey will be true World Cup souvenirs.

Some states have open courts. They report no problems, no difference in the effect of open vs. closed hearings. Does protection not only protect, but also harm? Is it better, at least in some cases, to subject a juvenile to the social consequences of his or her behavior, as well as the strictly legal consequences? How do we weigh the juvenile's interest in protection against the same interest of the public? What of the effect of secrecy upon the conduct of the juvenile courts themselves? Every other court, when acting judicially hearing cases, imposing sentences is open to public scrutiny. Openness makes courts accountable. Integrity must be seen to be believed. Juvenile courts, acting in secret, arouse the same suspicions to head Asbury Park Press tile photo Ex-prosecutor James W. Holzapfel is considered the front-runner for Virginia E. Haines' Assembly seat. International and Autotote Lottery Co. range from $101 million to $112 million. The Lottery Commission was unable to make a recommendation for a contract award and the Treasury Department is now reviewing the bids. Haines, an early Whitman supporter who served as clerk of the General Assembly from 1987 to 1990, is the fourth Republican lawmaker tapped by Whitman to serve in a key administration position. Haines will follow Robert C. Shinn Jr., commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection and Energy; Harriet E. Derman, commissioner of the Department of Commerce; and Richard Kamin, acting director of the Division of Motor Vehicles. Assembly Majority Leader Jack Collins, R-Salem, called Haines' selection "another big loss for the Assembly caucus and another big plus for the Whitman administration." Pelly said he will work for a private company once he leaves the lottery post, saying he would combine his "legislative, administrative and pharmaceutical expertise" in the new job. Pelly said his new employer, who he declined to name, would announce the new job soon. Press staff writers Patricia A. Miller and Herb Jackson contributed to this story.

Summing up then, it seems to me that the interest of the public in its own protection and in having accountable courts, together with the absence of information concerning the importance or unimportance of secret juvenile proceedings, requires a change in current practice. I suggest, as some legislators have suggested, that a line be drawn separating those cases involving a prospect of serious harm to people or property from those that do not. Proceedings for the former would require open judicial proceedings, providing the public with an opportunity to scrutinize the actions of the courts; proceedings for the latter would be closed, providing the juvenile with protection at least as long as protection makes sense.
