    Things that give us a scare are all part of the season.

    Halloween has always been about ghosts, goblins, witches and ghouls. Things that give us a scare are all part of the season, and we've included some creepy photos in this gallery to keep that tradition going.

    But Halloween also offers us a snapshot of the culture of the times, as evidenced by the costumes that folks wear when celebrating the season. According to thedailymeal.com, "In the 1920s, costumes started out simple and homemade. The Pierrot clown, with its dramatic black and white painted face, was a popular costume. Other Halloween staples, like witches, gypsies, and farmers, got their start in the 1920s."

    In the 1930s, Disney themes became big Halloween hits, with children dressing as Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and other animated characters. The website notes that the modern trend of sexy costumes for adults began in the 1940s due, in part, to material shortages.

    The 1950s were heavily influenced by both world cultures and TV. Cowboys were hugely popular, due to the numerous westerns on the three networks. The move toward making Hawaii the 50th state in 1959 resulted in grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts as popular costumes. And what else would the 1960s be except superheroes, with Superman, Batman and many other caped crusaders becoming THE costume to have during the decade.

    The 1970s saw Peanuts characters dominate costume sales, while the 1980s were an eclectic mix of pop culture from Hulk Hogan to Elvira. Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles dominated the '90s, while Harry Potter characters were all the rage in the new millennium.

    Here's a gallery of New Jerseyans dressed up and scary sights from around the state. And here are links to other galleries you might like.

    The 39-year-old used the money to pay his mortgage, and buy tickets to concerts and baseball games

    TRENTON -- A financial advisor convicted of stealing $255,000 from a client's pension fund was Wednesday sentenced to more than 3 years in prison.

    Jesse Holovacko, 39, of Sayreville, was also be subject to three years of supervised release and faces a hearing Nov. 15 to determine how much money he will have to pay in restitution, the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a statement. 

    Holovacko talked the victim, a former factory worker, into moving his pension funds into his personal account so the money could be used to buy bonds. The victim then sent Holovacko 18 cashier's checks totaling $255,000 after the advisor said doing so would make it easier to purchase the bonds.

    Financial promised to invest $890K, pocketed it instead

    Instead, Holovack spent the money on his car loan and mortgage payments, visits to clubs, meals in restaurants and concerts and baseball game tickets. He also withdrew about $150,000 in cash, authorities said. 

    The scam ran from December 2013 through August 2014. 

    A jury found Holovacko guilty on all counts in the indictment, which included six counts of wire fraud and one count of investment advisor fraud, following a five-day trial.

    University officials said the since-deleted rants on the professor's Facebook page may have violated Rutgers' anti-discrimination policy.

    NEW BRUNSWICK -- A Rutgers University professor accused of posting anti-Semitic posts on his Facebook page issued an unusual defense on Thursday, saying his social media account was hacked and that he couldn't say with confidence that all the posts were shared by him.

    Michael Chikindas, a veteran professor in the food science department, allegedly posted anti-Israel and anti-Jewish rants on his page over several months, including some saying the Armenian genocide was orchestrated by Jews.

    In an email to NJ Advance Media, Chikindas denied his Facebook posts were anti-Semitic and said his account, which he thought would only been seen by a small circle of friends, was hacked.

    "As a result of my account being hacked, I cannot say with confidence that everything on my page was shared by me: There is a good chance for some things being placed on my page by those who hacked my account," Chikindas said in an email sent to NJ Advance Media.

    However, Chikindas did not deny sharing some of the cartoons, images and comments considered anti-Semitic.

    Rutgers University officials are investigating the prominent professor for allegedly violating the campus' anti-discrimination policy with his Facebook comments.

    The professor's account also posted racist cartoon-images depicting Jews and a link to a conspiracy theorists claiming the 9/11 attacks were planned by Israel and American Jews, according to accounts in the Jewish press. In other posts, Chikindas referred to Israeli and American women, including First Lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, as "sluts" and "bitches." 

    The posts have since been removed, but copies remain on Jewish blogs and other publications that first reported Chikindas' comments.

    White supremacist fliers posted at Rutgers

    "I do not identify myself as anti-Semite. It is my lifelong credo that all people are born equal regardless of their ethnicity, religion and wealth. I am equally intolerant to all forms of racism, without any exclusions," Chikindas said in his email. "The pictures I shared from other Facebook pages were not removed by the Facebook mediators which made me think they are not violating any rules while raising a question of possible racist nature of Zionism."

    Chikindas also said he has been receiving death threats since his posts became public, including many he claims are coming from Israel-based Russians.

    "I feel extremely insecure with my health and life being threatened in numerous written and verbal messages," Chikindas said.

    In a previous interview with the Jewish newspaper The Algemeiner, Chikindas also denied his comments were anti-Semitic and said he was once married to a Jewish woman and they have a child together. He also said his family lineage is 25 percent Jewish.

    Rutgers officials disavowed the professor's Facebook comments and said he is being investigated for violating the university's anti-discrimination policies.

    "Professor Michael Chikindas' comments and posts on social media are antithetical to our university's principles and values of respect for people of all backgrounds, including, among other groups, our large and vibrant Jewish community. Such comments do not represent the position of the university," Rutgers officials said in a statement Wednesday.

    Chikindas, a tenured professor and director of the Center for Digestive Health at Rutgers' New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health, has free speech rights on campus, school officials said. But, he may have gone too far in his Facebook posts. 

    "Rutgers' position on free speech is clear: All of the members of our community, including faculty and staff, are free to express their viewpoints in public forums as private citizens. Yet at Rutgers University we must also foster an environment free from discrimination, as articulated in our policy prohibiting discrimination. The university is reviewing this matter to determine if actions taken in the context of his role as a faculty member at Rutgers may have violated that policy," the university's statement said.

    Rutgers Hillel, the campus Jewish organization, noted in a statement that the news of the investigation into Chikindas comes the same week that white supremacist recruitment fliers were posted around the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses.

    "His vile anti-Semitism is a profound embarrassment to our university and a source of pain and bewilderment to our students, the largest Jewish undergraduate population in America, and to our alumni, parents, and supporters," the Rutgers Hillel statement said.

    According to his resume, Chikindas earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Armenia and received his doctorate in genetics at a school in Moscow.

    He has worked at Rutgers since 1998 and earned tenure in 2007. He is founder and editor-in-chief of Probiotics and Antimicrobial Proteins, a professional research journal.

    Republican Kim Guadagno held a news conference Thursday to address Democratic rival Phil Murphy's immigration stances.

    SAYREVILLE -- Republican nominee for governor Kim Guadagno on Thursday continued to hammer Democratic rival Phil Murphy for saying he'd be open to making New Jersey a "sanctuary state" -- this time suggesting it disqualifies him from being governor. 

    "If he didn't understand when he recommended that New Jersey becomes a sanctuary state, that disqualifies him," Guadagno said at a news conference at Sayreville borough hall. "If he did understand what it meant when he said he wanted New Jersey to be a sanctuary state, that disqualifies him. Because it's only common sense. You do not put families at risk if you want to be the governor of this state."

    The battle over so-called "sanctuary" cities and states has become a flashpoint in the Nov. 7 race to succeed Chris Christie for governor. 

    Murphy's campaign declined to comment on Guadagno's remarks Thursday, pointing to past statements the Democrat has said on the issue.

    Murphy, a former U.S. ambassador to Germany who is ahead in the polls by double digits, has vowed to protect undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.

    He also said during a debate earlier this month that, "if need be," he'd make New Jersey a "sanctuary state" to help protect some undocumented immigrants  -- though he has stressed that those who commit violent crimes should be prosecuted. 

    Here's how Guadagno wants to ban sanctuary cities in N.J.

    Murphy has not detailed exactly what being a "sanctuary state" would mean. But generally, law enforcement officials in "sanctuary" cities, counties, and states decline to cooperate with federal immigration authorities who are seeking help to detain undocumented immigrants. 

    Critics have accused opponents of such policies of race-baiting and stoking fear. Proponents say "sanctuary" policies actually make communities safer because undocumented immigrants are more likely to cooperate with police. 

    Guadagno, Christie's lieutenant governor and a former Monmouth County sheriff, has taken the opposite tack, suggesting that "sanctuary" policies put New Jersey in dangerous because they help harbor undocumented immigrants who are criminals.

    Guadagno has promised to ban New Jersey municipalities from adopting "sanctuary" policies, saying she would seek to sign a law that would withhold state aid to towns that don't comply. 

    That's similar to an executive order President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, signed that authorizes the federal government to withhold some federal funds from "sanctuary" cities. 

    Guadagno said Thursday she did not know how her administration would withhold that aid. 

    "We'll figure it out," she said. "I don't have an answer to that question."

    But she said her plan would likely require legislation to be passed by the state Legislature. Such a plan seems unlikely to pass, since both houses of the Legislature are controlled by Democrats. 

    Guadagno noted that Sayreville is in Middlesex County, which adopted "sanctuary" policies in June. She then pointed to how federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents recently arrested 36 people in the county who had immigration detainers on them but were released. 

    She said some of those arrested were convicted of crimes such as child abuse, heroin possession, and aggravated assault.

    "Those are the types of people who get released back out into our communities when you declare yourself a sanctuary city," Guadagno said. 

    She also once again pointed to the case of Jose Carranza, an undocumented Peruvian immigrant who was convicted of killing three teens in the 2007 Newark schoolyard murders. Carranza was previously arrested on charges of child rape but was released on bail. 

    "That's what could have happened in Middlesex County," Guadagno said. 

    A reporter then mentioned that some of the people arrested in Middlesex County had already served their sentence, and that them being held on detainer may violate the U.S. Constitution. 

    "It's really scary when a reporter starts to talk constitutional law to a lawyer who used to be the sheriff," Guadagno said.

    "You run their background check before they're released, so you don't run into any constitutional issues," she added.

    Guadago was also pressed on the idea that if she withholds aids to cities, that could lead to increasing in property taxes. Cutting property taxes has been a key part of her platform. 

    She responded that federal funds would be "compromised" under Murphy's "sanctuary state" idea.

    "You're hurting the very people you're claiming to represent," she said of Murphy.

    Guadagno also pushed back on the idea that she's taking a Trump-like right turn on immigration in an effort to appeal to the Republican base.

    Asked if she agrees with Trump on other immigration policies, such as the border wall, she said: "I am talking solely about sanctuary states."

    "Yes, I agree with the president on some things," she said. "And I disagree with him on other things. Am I going to go through each piece of it right now? No."

    A new walkway and two buildings will honor African-Americans as the state university comes to terms with its difficult history.

    NEW BRUNSWICK -- Rutgers University took a step toward "reconciliation" with its slave-owning past Thursday in an emotional ceremony to rename three parts of its campus after African-Americans with ties to the school.

    The walkway from the Old Queens building to Voorhees Mall in New Brunswick was officially named Will's Way after a slave who helped lay the foundation for Rutgers' administration building in 1808. His last name is unknown.

    A nearby student apartment building on College Avenue was named Sojourner Truth Apartments, after the noted abolitionist who was once owned by relatives of Rutgers' first president. Another building on the Livingston campus in Piscataway was renamed the James Dickson Carr Library after Rutgers' first African-American graduate.

    Rutgers-New Brunswick Chancellor Deba Dutta said the name changes, which were first announced in February after the university's "Scarlet and Black" report on the school's ties to slavery, were an important acknowledgement of a dark section of the state university's history.

    How Rutgers is tied to slavery

    "The dedications will help the university take the next step in its reconciliation with this history. Will, Sojourner Truth and James Dickson Carr deserve their place alongside the other historic figures memorialized on our campus," Dutta said.

    The renaming ceremony comes as other colleges, including Princeton UniversityStockton University and The College of New Jersey, have struggled with calls to remove the names of people with racist pasts from their campuses.

    The Rutgers dedication ceremony included a libation ritual, similar to those in African cultures, in which water was poured on Will's Way to honor Will, Truth, and Carr. A student read Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise" and the Liberated Gospel Choir, a student choir, sang "Lift Every Voice and Sing," a song known as the "Black American National Anthem."

    The ceremony ended with a rare ringing of Rutgers' nearly 200-year-old Old Queens Bell.

    Will's Way is marked with a plaque near the north door of Old Queens, the school's main administration building. A copy of the accounting book noting the payment to Will's owner for the slave's work on the building's foundation is on display inside the building.

    A grade book displaying Carr's grades while he was a student at Rutgers will be on display at the former Kilmer Area Library renamed in his honor.

    Students in Rutgers' Public History Internship Program will lead "Scarlet and Black" historical walking tours of the College Avenue Campus through Nov. 10, school officials said.

    A witnesss said at least two people were hit by gunfire Watch video

    EDISON -- Police are investigating an early-morning shooting during a Halloween party at a hotel banquet hall in Edison.

    Dozens of revelers in costumes ran out of the E Hotel Banquet and Conference Center on Woodbridge Avenue after shots were fired around 12:40 a.m., according to witnesses.

    One witness said he heard three or four shots as he walked from the parking lot toward the hotel where he was to meet friends at the party.

    Derrick Peprah, a 24-year-old Rutgers University student from South Brunswick, said at least two people were shot and several others injured as people fled the building in a panic. Both of the people struck by gunfire are men, Peprah said. 

    "It was a nightmare," Peprhah said. He initially thought one of his friends attending the party might have been shot, but later found out that they were all are OK, he said.

    Edison police have not responded to NJ Advance's requests for additional information. A clerk who answered the phone at the hotel said no one was available to comment.

    There's a twist ...


    0 0

    Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts rejoined forces to update their musical, which runs at George Street Playhouse's temporary home on the Cook College campus through Nov. 12.

    In far more innocent times -- the mid-1990s -- playwright Joe DiPietro wrote a musical about modern relationships. Among the stories told in "I Love You, I Hate You, Now Change," was one about a woman sitting near her home phone waiting for man to call and a couple suffering through a boring blind date.

     A landline? A blind date that drags on?  

    "That no longer makes sense. People don't wait by the phone anymore. They send a quick text, 'Had a nice time.' A phone call is a commitment," DiPietro said. "And now people meet on Tinder and they can replace an unexciting date with a swipe of a finger."

    That's why Di Pietro, who wrote the show's book's and lyrics, and Jimmy Roberts, who crafted the music have updated their 1996 musical with new music, new couples, a larger band and, for the first time, choreography. The show runs through Nov. 12 at the George Street Playhouse, now operating out of its temporary home in the former New Jersey Museum of Agriculture on Rutgers University's Cook College campus.

    "In some ways, it's perfect (as a choice to launch George Street's season), said David Saint, George Street's artistic director and the play's director. "The show's changing. We're changing."

    The organization's new, state-of-the-art theater is expected to return to downtown New Brunswick in 2019. Its temporary home, while only a five-minute drive from the old theater, "makes you feel like you're in the country. We have cows and sheep and goats all around us. It's lovely," Saint said.

    This theater seats fewer people than George Street's old home so performance runs will be longer. The site's amenities - including better climate control, convenient parking and a courtyard  -- far outweigh any drawbacks. For this production, the theater uses 15 video screens to change moods and depict different settings.

    "It's very contemporary," Saint said. "Before we couldn't do this high tech scenery and it's helped give the production a fresh, new look."

    DiPietro said the current incarnation of "I Love You" is "somewhat dirtier, a little edgier, than it was because comedy has changed and how we speak has changed in 20 years." He was initially worried some audience members would balk at some changes, like the song addressing men who send unsolicited photos that's called "A Picture of His ...." He was reassured on opening night and during every show since.

    "Even the matinee ladies roared with laughter," he said.

    Other changes include the addition of three gay characters, including a couple who adopt a child and bore the those around them with incessant baby talk "which straight people do, too," DiPietro said. A Jamaican woman makes her first video dating profile, singing "Come on, Mr. Computer, man," in a thick accent. One song has a rap segment. Outdated cultural references were also made current; for example, Honey Boo Boo was replaced with a Kardashian.

    Said DiPietro, "We worked hard to modernize all things."

    Long Branch police charged Officer Jake Pascucci with driving while intoxicated in the Sept. 22 incident Watch video

     

    LONG BRANCH -- An off-duty Long Branch police officer allegedly was drunk when he hit and killed a woman who was crossing the street in town last month, according to authorities.

    Long Branch police on Thursday charged Jake Pascucci, 28, with driving while intoxicated, adding to the charges of careless and reckless driving already filed against him in the Sept. 22 death of Karen Borkowski, according to the summons obtained by NJ Advance Media through an Open Public Records Act request.

    Borkowski, 66, of Stanhope, was crossing Ocean Boulevard at Broadway around 8:15 p.m. to go to the CVS store for some bandages when she was struck by Pascucci's 2016 Jeep, according to her husband and police.

    Pascucci.jpgOfficer Jake Pascucci was named "Cop of the Month" in February 2015. (Long Branch Police Department Facebook page)

    Pascucci told officers at the scene he had a green light and that Borkowski was jaywalking, according to dashboard camera video from police at the scene.

    "She walked right in front of me, jaywalking," he can be heard saying in the video. "I have a green light, going this way, southbound. She walked right out in front of me."

    The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office initially was investigating the crash but the case was later transferred to Middlesex County to avoid a conflict of interest because Pascucci was part of an investigation led by the prosecutor's office in Monmouth County.

    The initial report filed by Long Branch police did not indicate Pascucci's speed at the time.

    The complaint lodged Thursday listed a single charge of driving while intoxicated.

    Acting Long Branch police Chief Jason Roebuck said discussions are still ongoing about Pascucci's job status and a decision on his employment will probably be made early next week.

    The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office rejected NJ Advance Media's OPRA request for the results of Pascucci's toxicology test.
