"The general level of picketing, harassment, that kind of incident, is down today," said New Jersey Bell spokesman Nelson Runger. "'The number of incidents of damage to company property is about the same.

It runs in the neighborhood of 20 to 25 incidents a day running from a chopped cable to a tire (slashing)." Other reports of slashed telephone cables, sabotaged terminal boxes and other vandalism have been reported in Piscataway, Edinburg, Jersey City, Bayonne, Union, Pennsauken, Saddle Brook and Paramus since the American Telephone Telegraph Co. workers nationwide struck at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, according to New Jersey Bell officials. Paul Levison, an attorney representing the striking workers in New Jersey, has said union leaders do not condone any acts of violence and that they were not aware of any. He said such actions would be against union policy.

Telephone officials have not blamed strikers directly for the vandalism, but they have claimed that massive picketing sparked disturbances at some New Jersey Bell offices earlier this week. Superior Court Judge John A. Marzulli issued an order Wednesday permitting only six pickets at any of Bell's 500 facilities in the state and requiring them to stand at least 12 feet apart. The exception was New Jersey Bell headquarters in Newark, where 12 strikers were permitted. New Jersey Bell officials met yesterday with Communication Workers of America representatives in an attempt to resolve various local contract issues, Runger said.

No meetings were scheduled for today with the CWA, representing service representatives, account executives and operators. No meetings were planned with the IBEW, which represents repair and installation personnel among other workers, Runger said. New Jersey Bell offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those who have damaged phone company equipment. In Somerset County, a picketer was knocked down by a car but uninjured in an apparent accident that occurred outside the Campus Avenue office of American Telephone Telegraph Co. in the Somerset section of Franklin Township yesterday morning.

Police said Sandy Becker, 37, a member of Communication Workers of America 1150, was struck in the parking lot while picketing. A mail delivery car, driven by Jeffrey Simon of Lebanon, struck her, Police Capt. Joseph Juzwiak said. "The police made a deal about it." Becker said yesterday afternoon. "'He didn't assault me; it was an accident.

I think he put his car into park. When the car moved forward a bit, the front bumper hit my leg." Becker was taken by ambulance to St. Peter's Medical Center in New Brunswick, where X-rays revealed no broken bones or other injury. Hearing to be held on closing Continued from Page B1 during the repairs, which are planned for bridges between River Road in Piscataway through Franklin to Route 28 in Bridgewater. Lawler admitted the closing would present problems for motorists.

"The highway already is congested with six lanes," she said. "But there's not too much else we can do. There's no way to avoid what is going to be a really congested situation." Work on the bridges, which now are scarred with potholes, has. been put off since the early 1970s because of a lack of funds. Lawler said the the potholes now have affected the bridges' substructures and reconstruction work is needed.

Piscataway Mayor Robert Smith, who lives in one of the towns that will be most affected by the expected detours, said yesterday he hoped state officials would be sympathetic to his community's concerns. "I foresee a horrendous traffic situation," he said. "Maybe they can close one lane at a time." Answers to refuge's woes Continued from Page B1 are some old landfills that have not been thoroughly evaluated," Dyer said. Public use of refuge facilities and concerns about hunting and other recreational uses by environmental groups were also studied, he said. Area environmentalists have annually protested deer hunting at the Great Swamp since its inception in 1960.

Dyer defended the swamp's use as a hunting area, however. "You can't stockpile wildlife. Hunting is a necessary and viable tool in managing wildlife," he said. In addition, public overuse of the refuge may drive wildlife away from areas where visitors come to see them, Dyer said. "A lot of time, wildlife and people don't mix too well," he said.

During the master plan hearings held in February 1982, wildlife service officials said the plan will determine how the refuge will look in the next decade. The plan attempts to balance the public's demands with the need to preserve the facility. At the time of the hearings, residents and local environmentalists agreed that the plan should give special attention to conserving the swamp in its existing state and curbing pollution. Many said that the refuge should not be used as a park because state parks are available for picnicking and recreation. Dyer said about half of the refuge is designated as wilderness and there is restricted public use of those areas.

Hearings on a draft of the master plan will be scheduled later this year, according to officials at the refuge. Board dissatisfied with plans Continued from Page B1 Boundbrook 82 Associates, outlined the changes planned by his client, which include a larger parking lot, elimination of drainage problems, and a free-standing directory sign that will advertise the businesses in the mall. "The way it is now," Weston said, "we can't get any new tenants to move in there." The mini-mall was originally built by Moorehouse and Momouth a Plainfield developer, but the sixstore complex has concerned borough officials throughout its three year history. According to John Verb, a spokesman for Moorehouse and Momouth final construction was stalled in 1981 by the withdrawal of several banks that had inquired about a branch office. In October of that year, the Planning Board gave the developer 30 days to complete the project, which was creating an eyesore with its unpaved parking lot as well as severe drainage problems on Main Street.

was again the focus of borough attention, when it was put up for sale because property taxes had not been paid for over a year. There were no bidders on the property, which still had the original three tenants a coin-operated laundry, Zagarella's Bakery and Eve's Hair Spectrum. Finally, in March of this year, Lincoln Federal Savings agreed to pay the back taxes, which according to borough treasurer Catherine Hoats, amounted to more than $25,000. The mall was then sold to Boundbrook 82 Associates. Weston said the new owners have contracted a Matawan engineering firm to help them iron out difficulties with the property.

"'The previous developers ran out of money to finish it properly," he said. One of the mini-mall tenants, Karen Tomasello, of Zagarella's concurred with Weston and spoke hopefully of the proposed changes. "They will definitely help our business." she said. "When we finish our improvements this will be a dynamite mini- In October of 1982, the mini-mall mall," Weston added. Borough engineer to appeal Continued from Page B1 who also works for Sussex Civil Engineers in Sparta.

"I retained legal counsel and wasn't given sufficient time to prepare." Reina said there are no provisions for Kolody to receive a hearing from the Borough Council. He said the council would need a majority of five votes to overule the mayor within 20 days of Novak's request to fire Kolody from his job. "Under our form of government, the mayor has the discretion to dismiss any department head," Reina said. "The mayor can file his intention to dismiss the department head with the council. But it would take the council five votes to overule his decision.

Otherwise, it's automatic." The Friday, August 12, Courier-News 1983 B3 Obituaries Dominic A. Cavicchia dies; served in state Assembly FANWOOD Dominic A.

Michael Rotunno and family Novak cited reasons of insubordination for the firing, explaining Kolody was using borough time to work at his own business Kolody Associates on Greenbrook Road.

Novak also said Kolody was taking days off without permission and was not completing borough projects. "I wouldn't even say at this point that we're considering Mike Kolody's resignation he's fired," Novak said yesterday. "When he talks about personal differences, it's just a nice excuse sour grapes. "We've had overwhelming support from the community on this situation," he added. "Mike Townley completed in three days what Kolody couldn't do in three months." IN MEMORIAM IN LOVING MEMORY 1 Yr.
