5 years ago the Kearny Generals Football Program was told that Verans Field would be redone with Field Turf, new Press Box and storage facility. Picture was on the front page of The Observer with Ralph Cattafi and Mayor Santos bragging how they received funding, along with then Kearny LL President Gary Blanco. Nothing was ever completed.

Now, as you can see, if you drive by Harvey Field, it is being totally redone! What a surprise! A field that has been turfed within the last decade, that is maintained well, another soccer field being refurbished yet again before Vets Field, a field that has NEVER been refurbished. With a soccer guy in the Recreation Department (RC) and the former Soccer Coach turned Kearny HS A.D (JM) who also happens to be on the Recreation Commission running things, it is NO SURPRISE.

People, it does not take much. Not many people vote. All you Football parents out there who have kids in the Genrals Program and High School Football Program, which amounts to about a set of 200 parents, band together and get out and vote this november. Something must be done, as KHS A.D. continues to only represent the select kids in his favor, the SOCCER KIDS

Sandy J, It`s called empty promises,liars,I`ll tell them what they want to hear ! For 10 years Mayor Santos has been promising to up-grade vet`s field. All that was done to vet`s is new bleachers,new fencing in front of bleachers causing blurred vision,new dug-outs, fresh paint for concession stand (which is falling apart) restrooms that are disgusting(I wouldn`t let my DOG USE). Approximately 8 years ago the Men who ran the Generals Football program had asked the mayor if they could build a Field house on vet`s field, they had license contractors, material,all being donated- free-no charge for work that would have been done. TOWN WOULD HAVE PAID NOTHING!! They were told due to insurance regulations it was not permitted, but they permitted KEARNY YOUTH SOCCER TO BUILD A FIELD HOUSE AT GUNNEL OVAL,I GUESS INSURANCE WASN`T A PROBLEM THEN? Watch out VET`S field soon to be made a SOCCER FIELD. As for your so called RECREATION COMMISSIONERS They are ' ALL USELESS'. !!!!!!

all kearny sports have gone downhill, baseball is a mess, basketball it is not even funny how bad that has gotten and the only way football will be addressed is once some poor kid gets hurt unfortunately because millar has no comprehension of what it takes to run an athletic departmen the guy was a gym teacher for god's sake the only reason he got the job was as a reward for winning in soccer all those years which funny it wasn't even due to him he won for 2 reasons first off all the success of the thistle club and those great coaches who trained the players and second he recruited athletes illegally from brazil through mullins anybody in the know is aware of these facts millar is just a politician/gym teacher
