Roseanne Celic has never been able to go to ground
zero.
Her husband, Thomas, who worked for global insur-
ance broker Marsh & McLennan, was 43 when he per-
ished on Sept. 11, 2001, in the World Trade Center’s
North Tower. Every year since, Roseanne Celic, who
lives in Staten Island, has found solace by visiting me-
morials to the victim in the area.
On Wednesday, she was taking photos at the Mon-
mouth County memorial, high atop Mount Mitchill in
Atlantic Highlands.
“I had never seen this one before,” said Celic, 54, as
she read the names of the 147 Monmouth County resi-
dents who died 13 years ago. “I wanted to see it.”
Her boyfriend, Don Griffin, has a friend who lives
nearby in Keansburg who told him about the memorial.
It features a sculpture of an eagle in flight, clasping a
piece of twisted World Trade Center steel in its talons.

When President Barack Obama went on national
television to outline his plan for counter-terrorism ac-
tions Wednesday night — the 13th anniversary eve of
the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks — family and friends
of Ocean County and Monmouth County residents who
perished had mixed reactions.
Obama told congressional leaders he wants to take
action against the jihadist group known as the Islamic
State. His plan includes more U.S. airstrikes, counter-
terrorism actions, aid from other nations and military
training and assistance to moderates in Iraq and Syria.
Lorraine Arias-Beliveau of Barnegat, whose broth-
er, Adam Arias, died on the 84th floor of the World
Trade Center, was angered by the plan.
“They have been dragging their heels and there’s
still no resolve to what happened here. No one has held
these people accountable. There is still no justice for
Obama: We will hunt down
terrorists wherever they are

When Dino Mangiero passed on
offers from Ohio State and Maryland to
play at Rutgers in the mid-1970s, it was
because he wanted a place where a
New York City kid whose high school
team was winless his senior year could
play right away.
“My freshman year (1976) we went
11-0, but we didn’t play anybody,” re-
called Mangiero, a defensive lineman. “We beat a
bunch of Ivy League schools and UMass. It was not
big-time Division I football. But then my second year
we played Penn State and you could see coach (Frank)
Burns was building the program.”
By the time the 2007 class showed up on campus
with the likes of left tackle Anthony Davis, linebacker
Manny Abreu and cornerback Mason Robinson, 4-star
prospects were the order of the day, with a series of
highly-rated recruiting classes loading the Scarlet
Knights’ roster with potential NFL talent.
“Kids were coming to Rutgers because we proved
we were a team to be reckoned with,” said linebacker
