  • Poised for a Comeback: Hinchliffe Stadium
    and the Family Stone Hinchliffe closed to the public in 1997 and slid into disrepair as the Paterson school district took over ownership Today its interior walls are covered with graffiti its concrete walkways cracked and filled with weeds its iron gates padlocked However thanks to a grass roots movement led by the Friends of Hinchliffe Stadium the historic structure is on the verge of a revival Paterson voters approved measures to rehabilitate the facility in a non binding referendum in 2009 more than a decade after Preservation New Jersey named Hinchliffe one of the state s 10 most endangered historic sites The movement to revitalize the structure gained momentum last year when the federal government designated Hinchliffe a National Historic Landmark the only such facility with a history connected to baseball A bill submitted by U S Congressman Bill Pascrell to include the facility in Paterson s Great Falls National Historic Park is awaiting action in the House of Representatives and 1 million in grants have been earmarked to stabilize the stadium and halt its deterioration Recommended Reading 7 Spots to Watch Super Bowl 50 That work is to begin this summer but there s still a long way to go The tab for the entire rehabilitation of the facility has been estimated at 15 million Supporters of the effort are optimistic the funds can be raised after such recent victories Brian LoPinto president and co founder of Friends of Hinchliffe Stadium says the city of Paterson is hopeful it will receive the requested 1 million in grants for the initial work He adds that such progress will help the renovation project gain even more steam What a landmark like Hinchliffe does is honor the past and remember the players and teams that played there he says Now we have an opportunity to give it another life because we hope the latest news will spur more donors for the effort As Hinchliffe began its phoenix like resurgence local awareness of Ellerbee heightened especially in the city s close knit African American community even as he spent his golden years on Cape Cod Local journalist and activist Jimmy Richardson says Ellerbee cherished his connections with Hinchliffe and to Paterson He was a man with a strong interest in sports a very religious gentleman and he had high standards of ethics Richardson says of Ellerbee His legacy in local baseball is very important In March 2013 just two months before he died Ellerbee took part in a telephone interview for WBGO s SportsJam with Doug Doyle I had the highest batting average of anyone else he told Doyle as he recounted his playing days I m not bragging on myself just telling it like it was Ellerbee wrapped up the conversation with a life lesson You have to believe in yourself to be good at anything he said I don t have no regrets I don t look back I keep looking forward Whoever you are be noble Whatever you do

  • History blooms each spring at Montclair’s Presby Memorial Iris Gardens-www.njmonthly.com
    native to North America as well as parts of Europe and Asia At one time this garden had close to 200 differing species irises plants culled from their native habitats around the world drawing international visitors particularly those homesick for flowers that grew in their homeland says Sercus who explains that the loss of the original collection likely occurred as some of the growing procedures fell by the wayside in earlier years The Presby is working on replacing this diverse collection of irises from every country on the planet where they still exist Sercus s passion for irises began at home The tall bearded iris is likely the most beloved of all garden flowers as it was always in our mother s and our grandmother s gardens Equally important this flower was always divided and passed along to friends and family and is considered to be a flower for the common man It is hardy propagates itself readily and is drought resistant Recommended Reading The Last Nest Saving Our Bald Eagle Population Hardy indeed Sercus jokes about a particularly robust variety called Indian Chief You can stomp it run over it with a truck throw it on the sidewalk and it will still grow It is fabulous Presby s Indian Chief from 1929 is a classic two toned iris with amaranth purple falls the three downward facing petals and pansy purple standards the three petals that stick up with bits of coppery brown and yellow beards the fuzzy part of the falls It grows in bed 25 But even the strongest flowers can only withstand so much In 2005 teenagers uprooted and scattered some 171 plants separating them from their identifying nameplates Fortunately the vandalism seemed to be a one time event reports Liscio The individuals made restitution of both time and money and we are glad that now things have been fine While the iris might be a flower for the common man many Presby specimens are quite uncommon Each year the American Iris Society awards a Dykes Medal to the finest iris of the year paying tribute to the hybridizer The Presby Gardens reserves bed 19 for its 80 Dykes Medal winners Historically irises have played an important part in people s lives In medieval times during the Crusades the Persian soldiers marked the graves of their dead by planting irises says Sercus The iris rhizome has also been recorded as being used medicinally and for cosmetics Even today these gorgeous flowers can have symbolic importance There are irises classified as rebloomers bearded irises that bloom again in the fall says Sercus After the tragic events of 9 11 the board of trustees contacted Joan Roberts of Pennsylvania one of the foremost breeders of rebloomers to commission the creation of three irises for the Presby Garden to remember friends and family from Montclair that were lost that day The three can be seen in bed 20 While Mother Nature takes care of much of the work the garden
