Thursday, September 11, 2014 07:12 AM

ATTENTION:  LSRP LICENSE HOLDERS

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT APPLICATIONS

The Board has approved applications for LSRPs to use to apply for approval of continuing education credits (CECs) for authoring a peer reviewed paper, preparing and giving a presentation, and instructing an approved continuing education program.  These applications may be found on the Board website at http://www.nj.gov/lsrpboard/board/education/course_info.html.  The Board will accept applications for approval of CECs for these activities within 90 days after completion of the activity (see individual applications for specifics).

Special extended application period:

If submitted within 90 days of September 10, 2014, the Board will accept applications from LSRPs for approval of CECs for continuing education activities conducted by that LSRP while holding a Temporary LSRP license at any time from January 1, 2011 to the present date, including the aforementioned authoring of a peer reviewed paper, preparing and giving a presentation, and instructing an approved continuing education program.

In addition, if submitted within 90 days of September 10, 2014, the Board will also accept applications from LSRPs for approval of CECs for continuing education programs that have not already been approved by the Board but which the LSRP attended while holding a Temporary LSRP license within the 18 months prior to receiving their first permanent license.

To be eligible for CECs for any such program, the LSRP must submit the application for course approval found on the Board website at:
http://www.nj.gov/lsrpboard/board/education/course_info.html.

Also, LSRPs may count CECs for Board-approved courses earned during the 18 months prior to receiving their first permanent license toward the total number of CECs (36) needed to be earned during their first license term, as long as the LSRP held a temporary license at the time the CECs were earned.   In this event, there is no application required to be submitted by the LSRP.   This one-time extension does not apply to LSRPs that have received their permanent license but did not hold a temporary license at the time the CECs were earned.

If you have questions regarding this listserv contact Board Secretary Karen Hershey at 609-984-3424 or[email protected].

LSRPA Awards Scholarships to Six Mercer High School Students
Thursday, June 26, 2014 08:00 PM

Andrea McGahan, P.G., LSRP of Woodard & Curran represented the Association and its Scholarship and Mentoring Committee on June 17, 2014 to present scholarships to the six students graduating from the Mercer High School who assisted the LSRPA during the 2013/2014 academic year.  At a pizza party hosted by the LSRPA at the school, Andrea,  15 students, and their faculty  gathered together for  recognition of their work for the LSRPA. The LSRPA provided scholarships to the following seniors: Catherine Pettit, Luis Perez, Joey Ragolia, Tyler Pelcz, Chris Pasun  and Brian Rodriguez.  The additional students who assisted the LSRPA  (but are not yet seniors) received certificates of appreciation.

By working on the LSRPA’s document preparation and assembly program, the students are learning life skills toward future placement in offices, schools and other work environments. In fact, one awardee missed the party to attend orientation at a newly acquired job using the skills he learned in this program and another was competing in the Special Olympics USA games here in NJ! All of the students were enthusiastic and enjoyed working on the LSRPA’s projects.  Lisa Piotrowski and assisting faculty helped the students by setting up their work environments, teaching them the skills needed, recognizing each student’s strengths and placing them in work teams to assist one another, and coaching them through each project.  One of the highlights of this year was acquisition of a new high speed copier which the students proudly mastered.  The group has a bulletin board in the school which features their work for the LSRPA and Ms. Piotrowski’s photo journal of their work and learning process. Photos of the event will follow soon.

This is the second year of the successful work and scholarship partnership between the LSRPA  and Mercer High School.

 
Court Finds Multiple Defendants Share $6.13 Million Liability for Cleanup of Mercury Contamination at Former Day Care Site
Wednesday, June 04, 2014 08:40 PM

(14/P53) TRENTON - Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman announced today that, in a significant legal victory for the State's environmental protection efforts, a Superior Court Judge has found multiple defendants liable for a total of $6.13 million to cover the cost of cleaning up mercury contamination at the site of Kiddie Kollege, a former day care center in Franklin Township, Gloucester County.

Superior Court Judge Anne McDonnell found that, despite their denials of legal responsibility, current property owner Jim Sullivan Inc., former owner the Navillus Group, and other "Sullivan Defendants" are liable for costs related to the clean-up and removal of mercury discharged by a thermometer-making factory located on the property before Sullivan bought it and leased it for use as a day care site.

Also legally responsible for clean-up costs are previous property owner Philip J. Giuliano and the now-defunct thermometer manufacturing company he owned, Accutherm, Inc. According to the Court's ruling, all defendants share a total liability of $2.04 million for the Kiddie Kollege property remediation, but Giuliano and Accutherm are liable for an additional $4.09 million because they failed to comply with a Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) directive that they clean up the original contamination caused by their unlawful discharge of mercury at the site.

"This is a very significant legal win for the people of New Jersey, and for our environment," said Acting Attorney General Hoffman. "It is only fitting that the original polluters - as well as those who bought the property from them and leased it to others without doing their homework -- are held accountable."
"In New Jersey, we hold firmly to the principle that those responsible for cleanups should be held liable for the cost of that work," said Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin.
"This ruling holds particular significance because this pollution so directly impacted children and their families," said Martin. "Today, the DEP, the New Jersey Department of Health and local agencies work closely together under a state law passed as a direct result of Kiddie Kollege to protect our children in day cares and schools."

Kiddie Kollege halted operations in July 2006 after both the DEP and the Department of Health and Senior Services determined the building in which it was housed was not fit for occupancy.

The determination was made on the basis of air and surface samples that found unacceptably high levels of mercury throughout the building. A naturally-occurring element, mercury is toxic to humans when inhaled or ingested.

The single-story building, which has since been razed, was acquired by Sullivan at tax sale and subsequently leased by Sullivan to the operators of Kiddie Kollege. Kiddie Kollege opened in 2004 and, throughout its two years of operation, provided day care services for children ranging in age from 8 months to 13 years.

In granting a motion for summary judgment filed by attorneys from the Division of Law, Judge McDonnell rejected assertions of non-liability by the Sullivan Defendants, noting that the mercury contamination "could have been discovered by research of historical use, or examination of the DEP's contaminated sites list, or by following their attorney's advice to engage an environmental professional to assess the property before proceeding to foreclose the tax sale certificates."

The judge also determined that Philip Giuliano, as the lone shareholder, CEO and corporate officer of Accutherm, directed his employees on how to handle and dispose of mercury during the company's operation, and also was solely responsible for the decision to shut down the business "and abandon the unremediated property."

Division of Law Deputy Attorneys General Timothy Malone, Lisa Morelli and Richard Engel handled the Kiddie Kollege matter on behalf of the State.
