New Milford HS tabs veteran North Jersey football coach as new lead man

...

Bill Straub’s first win at New Milford will be the 50th of his career.

The veteran North Jersey football coach, who won a sectional title at Westwood in 2006 and did two stints at Fort Lee, was approved as the Knights' new head during Wednesday’s Board of Education meeting.

Straub said he was attracted to the New Milford community as a place he could lead and make a difference.

“I began my career at Westwood and I see a lot of similarities to there,” Straub said Thursday. “I have been lucky enough to be at some great places, but I think this is a challenge and that’s what my career has always been about.”

New Milford was a small-school power last decade, reaching the playoffs six times during an eight-year span from 2012-2019, and reaching a sectional final in 2012 and 2016. The school hasn’t won a sectional title since 1986.

The Knights reached the playoffs in 2023, losing to Hawthorne in the first round and finishing 3-6.

“I think an opportunity to come to a program with such a great history was too good to pass,” Straub said. “I want to be able to challenge myself and challenge the program to get back to where it was.”

The 49-year-old coached at Fort Lee from 2016 to 2018, then helped out at Ridgewood during the 2020 COVID season under interim coach Dave Cord at the time. Cord is now the head coach at Northern Highlands.

For the last three seasons, Straub has been coaching linebackers at Bergen Catholic (current Crusaders coach Vito Campanile followed Straub at Westwood in 2009). The Crusaders have been the No. 1 team in New Jersey each of those years.

“I was surrounded by some amazing kids, not just players,” Straub said. “I enjoyed it, but I felt at this time that I wanted to be a head coach again and do more. That’s what sort of led me to New Milford.”

Straub expects to remain in his current position as a physical education and driver's education teacher at Fort Lee. He will also remain as Fort Lee’s softball coach.

There will be a meeting Friday where Straub will be introduced to his new team. He’s optimistic the numbers in the program will be strong. His message will be about competing each day.

“That was something I’ve picked up that these kids will compete every day in everything they do and they will understand that is what life is about,” Straub said. “Football has taught so many people so many great lessons and ultimately they will become better people because they have been in this program.”

The popular Cliffside Park bakery and cafe, which opened in 2021, recently celebrated the grand opening of its new location in New Milford at 160 Henley Ave. on Monday, Jan. 15. The opening is a homecoming for Kehetrin Alper, a New Milford resident and one of the co-owners of the restaurant, with her business partner, Sema Gozukucuk.

Aleria Bakery

The idea for the second location came when the owner of Crespo Hookah Grill in New Milford tried some of her baklava.

"He never had baklava," the owner said. "He said 'this is amazing. What is this?'

Alpar met with him and soon, Aleria Bakery had its new location, sharing the kitchen, and outdoor and indoor seating area with Crespo. The baklava has become one of the biggest attractions.

"It leads people through the door," Alpar said. "People have said our breakfast is one of the best breakfasts they have, because it's so fresh and healthy"

Aleria Bakery initially opened in 2021, after Alpar and Gozukucuk were working in a Mediterranean restaurant. Discovering they worked well together, they decided to look for their own place, even though restaurants were struggling during the pandemic.

Aleria Bakery

"Everyone told us this is not the right time," Alpar said. "Everything is closing and you're opening. But we just found the place and it felt right. It had a warmth and atmosphere and it felt like home. We did not want to miss out on this."

Everything at Aleria is made on-site, including the bread, tarts, cookies and the popular breakfast plate, which features feta cheese, mozzarella cheese, tomato, cucumber, green olives, black olives, honey, cream, butter, jam, boiled egg, walnuts and menemen, which is tomatoes cooked with green and red pepper mixed scrambled egg with salt and black pepper.

Aleria Bakery

Alpar said Mediterranean/Turkish cuisine has become popular because it offers a little bit of everything.

"It's a little more unique," Alpar said. "It's healthier than other cuisines."

Aleria Bakery

Running a business in the place she calls home has been a really nice experience for Alpar. More than 400 people showed up for the grand opening last week.

"That was heartwarming," Alpar said. "It made all those sleepless nights worth it. It's great seeing friends from high school pop in."

This North Jersey district will lose some state aid next year. How many jobs will it cut?

The New Milford school district will eliminate 22 staff positions, consolidate some jobs, lay off at least five people and make other cuts to cover a loss in state aid and increased operating expenses for the upcoming school year.

There will be cuts in expenses for professional development, supplies, transportation and energy. In addition, the district will cut by half the costs related to its contract with CarePlus for mental health and counseling services.

The cuts in the 2023-24 district budget were prompted by a drop of more than $600,000 in state aid, Superintendent Danielle Shanley told the school board at a meeting last week. State aid varies for districts from year to year and is calculated based on a formula used by the state Department of Education.

In addition, the district will experience a 15% increase in the cost of health benefits, as well as higher transportation costs, Shanley told NorthJersey.com. The pre-pandemic cost for transportation was under $1 million, compared with $1.6 million for the upcoming 2023-24 academic year, she said.

"Making decisions for non-renewals feels a bit like 'Sophie's Choice,'" Shanley said of the staffing cuts, adding that she hopes the district will see state aid rise in the following year.

New Milford enjoyed a significant 57% jump in state aid last year, from $2.9 to $4.6 million, even as enrollment in the district stayed relatively flat, with a little more than 2,000 students.

"If we had not received additional funding last year, we would have been doing the cuts last year," Shanley told NorthJersey.com.

Parents miffed at how questions are handled

Some parents who showed up for board meetings last week were concerned not only about the coming layoffs and eliminated positions, but about how their questions were handled by Shanley during the meetings’ public comment period.

Parents had to successively ask their questions while Shanley took notes. Then she answered them after all the questions had been raised. In most North Jersey school districts, the superintendent and board members answer each question after it is posed.

"I find it a little irresponsible that you pick and choose which questions to answer," one parent said, referring to his questions that went unaddressed after the superintendent responded to residents based on her notes. "The reason we're here is because we're concerned, and we're not getting specific answers. We're getting either general answers or no answers. I always feel like we're not given the opportunity to ask specific questions. At what point do we get some clarity?"

At another of the meetings, a parent said, “I think everyone would like to hear," after Shanley responded to her question with an offer to discuss it on the phone.

Pay raises for executives, cuts to staff

After parents asked if executive positions were being eliminated, how many staff members and teachers were losing their jobs and what measures could have been taken to avoid the cuts, board officials referred them to a published budget and video link to the budget presentation held April 28.

"I'm looking for specific answers,” one parent said. “I don't want to go to a video. I want to speak to someone. And I want that information to be put out to everyone."

A board member then asked Shanley to explain how many people had lost jobs. "I wonder if for the public and for the record we could break this down a little more," he said. "We keep hearing the number 22, but could we drill down a little bit to the number of permanent, full-time, teachers ... that are out of a job?"

Shanley calculated the number on paper as the board watched, and reported the number to be five people.

Shanley's base salary will be $223,686 in fiscal year 2023-24, a 4% increase. School Business Administrator Stephanie Kuchar will receive an 11% raise to $144,605.

Teacher advancement courses costly

Advancement courses taken by some teachers also obligated the district to raise their pay, making them unaffordable and adding to the need for staff cuts and other reductions, Shanley said.

Districts negotiate plans with teachers' unions if there is an automatic bump-up in salaries for staff members who take certain courses, said Hyunju Kwak, a Ridgewood Board of Education member who worked directly with the village teachers' union to negotiate its current contract. That can be a "double whammy" for districts, even though it helps students, she said.

Districts could reduce these costs by curating the courses to include only specific ones they certify and accept. Tuition reimbursement for these courses can add to district costs, she said.

Overall, districts statewide were facing "headwinds" from inflation and health benefit costs, Kwak said. Districts can apply for a health waiver if they face high benefits costs, she said.

The New Milford budget did not take into account one-time additional funding of $397,496 from the state, which could not be used to fund recurring costs such as salaries, Shanley told the board. Schools affected by cuts will receive the one-time funding from the state to defray rising costs from inflation and impacts on their budgets because of the end of COVID relief dollars.

State aid to New Milford for the last five years
