BLOOMFIELD, NJ — The Suburban Essex Chamber of Commerce, whose membership consists largely of Bloomfield, Glen Ridge and Belleville businesses and organizations, held its annual business development and anniversary awards dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Brookside Banquets in Bloomfield. It was an especially pleasant affair, and newcomers were welcomed with open arms. 

There were three groups of honorees on the bill for the evening. Foremost were the veteran legions of Belleville. These self-composed men sat around several tables, wore military-type shirts with insignia badges and spoke quietly among themselves. 

The evening’s next group of honorees were business owners, established or just starting out, who were being recognized for upgrading or renovating their sites. These individuals, at their tables with spouses, were relatively young and fashionably dressed. 

Last to be honored were the business owners who were celebrating, in five-year increments, business anniversaries. In conversation, they had long memories.

The evening began with the five Belleville veterans legions being honored. These organizations were American Legion Post 105, the Sons of American Legion Squad 105, American Legion Post 299, Belleville-Nutley Disabled American Veterans Chapter 22 and American Veterans Post 26. 

The executive administrator of the SECC, Donna M. Pietroiacovo, said in an email to this newspaper that each year for the awards dinner the SECC seeks out businesses that have developed or redeveloped existing properties, made a complete renovation, or made significant improvements to the interior or exterior of their buildings. 

“Our awards are given to both members and nonmembers who are nominated by the executive board and board of trustees,” she said.

There were 11 businesses that received business development awards. Every effort was made by this paper to contact each one for an interview; Pietroiacovo also provided valuable information. These are the 11 businesses. 


CMTKD, Belleville

As a new homeowner in Belleville in 2021, martial arts master Chris Malarkey decided to share his martial arts experience of more than 30 years with students in Belleville and surrounding towns. His teaching began exclusively outdoors during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic as a mental, physical and internal therapy for those struggling with the pandemic. He then began to remodel an empty storage space and transform it into an indoor space for his students. The renovations were sizable and completed in a narrow window of time, as wintry weather fast approached. This required many hours of work. The work is now complete, with brand-new mats, lighting, equipment, heating and cooling, and a clean/organized environment where his students can strive toward excellence.


Farmers Insurance Doeman Agency, Bloomfield

Gihane Shauna Doeman transformed a nail and hair salon into office space. Now the space is a professional insurance agency, with corporate signage, solid oak furnishings, new flooring, a fresh coat of paint, shelving, lighting and an attractive outdoor awning.

“The nail salon was closed for quite a while,” Doeman said in a telephone interview. “It’s a very inviting space.”

Doeman has been in the insurance business for eight years. She has two employees. 

“I just did a ribbon (cutting) recently, because of COVID,” she said.


Healing Hands on Physical Therapy, Belleville

As Allan R. Mendez started his new business, he looked at several locations and knew that Belleville would be the perfect spot to build his career in physical therapy. This facility already had private rooms, to which he added his equipment, so he could provide his patients with privacy during physical therapy treatments.

Additional updating to the clinic was done to create a calming, relaxing feeling for his patients during physical therapy. He added custom artwork that is soothing to the eye, salt lamps as they are thought to cleanse the air, a calming waterfall attraction with accent lighting in the hallway, a new reception area with signage and curtains for warmth. The gym area was outfitted with furniture and decorative shelving for the equipment. Mendez also makes a point to customize the music to each patient’s likings.

In a telephone interview, Mendez’s interior decorator, Michael, said the location had apparently been an insurance office. Mendez had dark oak flooring installed to provide a high contrast with cool, white walls. The site has a small office, three rooms to accommodate patients, the doctor’s office, a gym and a reception area. The furniture is black or dark brown, as is the gym equipment.

According to Michael, the location now has a “homey, Zen feel.”

The gym, he said, is required for insurance purposes. Healing Hands moved into its present location in September 2021.


Secrets to Plush Studio, Belleville

Secrets to Plush Studio is family-owned and -operated, offering a full array of services, including brows, lashes and facials. The studio, once a dark store front, was transformed into a well-lit area sporting a new, lighted awning proclaiming the business’ name. The interior walls were spackled and a fresh coat of paint brought life into the building. The bathroom colors were changed to give a fresh new look. To give clients privacy, owner Farrah Pate added curtains to separate the spaces; she also added mirrors to the walls so the clients could see the finished product. A painted mural brings together all the colors that help bring inspiration and ideas to the clients. Pate’s goal is to give her clients a warm and comfortable experience.

Pate said the wall mural is hand-painted in silver, gold, white, black and pink. She has installed three chandeliers. There are two pink plush couches and a black couch that seats eight. The business has two levels. The top level has light gray flooring, but the black walls make it look tan. The business moved in May 2021.


Salon East, Bloomfield

Owner and stylist Marlene Azenha said in a telephone interview that she is new to Bloomfield. Also brand new is the interior of her salon.

“It was a total renovation,” she said, “a gut job. It used to be a cleaners.”

Her business, she said, has a “modern look.” The vinyl floors have a wood look and the walls are painted blush pink. The furniture is white and gold. There is a small seating area, and there are five stations for hairdressing and a retail area. The tile ceiling has a decorative, “very sleek,” 3-D look, according to Azenha, who has been a hairdresser for 22 years. Outside, there is a small circular sign, and there are overhead lights.


Other recipients of a development award were chiropractor Harry Maroulakos, Clifton; Rainbow ABA Therapy, Bloomfield; Brookdale ShopRite, Bloomfield; Signature Fitness, Belleville; the Learning Experience, Bloomfield; and the Whiskey Priest, Belleville.

There were 49 recipients of business anniversary awards. The longest anniversaries were New York Life Insurance Co.’s New Jersey General Office, Saddle Brook, 175 years; Van Tassel Funeral Home, Bloomfield, 135 years; Job Haines Home, Bloomfield, 125 years; borough of Glen Ridge, 125 years; Silver Lake Baptist Church, Belleville, 105 years; and Minor Rubber Co., Bloomfield, 105 years.

Anthony Sacarello looks to shine again at USKA 101 Allentown


Video interview with Anthony Sacarello above

2022 is winding down and many of the region’s combat sports promotions are preparing for their holiday break.  USKA Fight Sports President, Gary Grant Jr. and his matchmaker, David Harr are giving the fans their gifts on December 3rd.  USKA 101 Allentown is going down and it’s a card full of young, hungry talent that caps off with the USKA 145 lb title fight.

In the main event, we have full rules Thai as Kyle Thompson takes on two-division defending champion Jon Fox.  Fox has put in the work in the gym and the ring as this is his 19th career fight.  I have gotten to see Fox grow into a savvy veteran who is also a lethal striker.  His confidence, and ring awareness really stood out to me in his most recent fight.  You could see his patience looking for that perfect counter.  Other times, he is on the attack.  Jon has really become an exciting and very good fighter.

The undercard

There are some very exciting matchups of young talent.  Anthony Sacarello made his debut at USKA with a highlight reel head-kick knockout (see video) and now returns for his second career bout where he will face 10th Planet Bethlehem’s Eric Garry.  Sacarello and his team at Next Level Martial Arts in Reading, PA are ready for the challenge.

MyMMANews reached out to speak with Anthony for the first time.  We asked him about his spectacular debut and knockout.  He tells us…

“I started training when I was 15 years old.  When I approached about competing, I was about 20.  Covid hit and our gym was shut down for a long time.  When we returned. I was basically in camp for a year before my first one.  Then after that long wait, to go in there and get that head kick in the first round was almost surreal.”

Please check out our interview on the link above.  Sacarello is 23 years old and judging by his smile and energy, I think he is loving what he is doing.  I look forwards to talking to him more in the future.

The USKA 101 Allentown fight card is listed below.  MyMMANews will be ringside for results and some post fight interviews.  There will be a PPV link available through the website.

DENISON, TX, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2022 / — This “Free Book” for our “Beloved American People” is over 750 pages long, with many pictures, and explains what has happened to the “Dream” that is “America” and how “We The People” can fully heal and restore that “Dream” once again! The “Author” of this book, Mike Ledbetter, has a “Doctorate of Jurisprudence,” and spent over ten years in the writing of this book. Moreover, in the “Author’s” own words, he let us know the following:

“The “Beloved Creator” of our Declaration of Independence has “Inspired” me to write this book for all our “People,” all our “Families” and “Children!” That is why it is also “Completely

Free” to everyone in our “Beloved Nation!” For our Creator asked me to let it be that way! And so you know it really is our Creator, our Trinity God, “They” have “Instructed” me to let all of you know that “They” will “Appear” even now to each person to confirm it! For that is our Creator’s way to let us know it is Him, He loves us, and is here to help!”

The above quote by the “Author” shared, this “New” and “Exciting” “Book” – Nine Sovereign Kings: The Return of God – is free to every “American Citizen”! Please feel free to click on the link below, and the “Book” will immediately “appear” for both you and your family to download!

Moreover, in this exciting “Book” is a section called “Many Pictures!” One will find in that section many “Inspirational Pictures” related to both “Faith,” “God,” “Angels,” “All of American History,” and the future of us all, “All of Mankind!” One will also find that the book is very thorough on the subject of “American Democracy,” the “Creator,” and the “Supreme Court!”

The above being said, one cannot but ask this Question? Is this really our Creator, our Trinity God, who has “Inspired” the writing of this “Book” for all the “American People?” If our Creator “Appeared” to you, as the “Author” said He would above, then we all know that answer! Yes, it is really the “Creator of our Declaration of Independence” who helped us, as “The Thirteen American Colonies,” against all odds, defeat the “Most Powerful Kingdom and Army” on the “Face of the Earth” at that time, the “Kingdom of England!”

However, even so, the question still remains, what does it mean? For in a way it makes sense that our Creator would “Appear” in some way in these “Times of Trouble” with an “Answer” for us!” For if the Creator is real, and I for one believe that He is, would we not expect Him to try to save us, to fight for us in the strongest way possible? For He did it for our “Founding Fathers” against every odd known or unknown at that time where they still miraculously prevailed and became “Free!” For as all of you remember, the world was under the “Reign of Life Tenured Rulers,” “Kings” and “Emperors” everywhere, when a handful of our “Forefathers,” with “One” they called the “Creator” both overcame and changed all of that in our “World!”

In the above “Truth” and “Light,” there is one more thing to know about the “Author” of this “Book” – Nine Sovereign Kings: The Return of God!” For he believes that we are presently in danger with a particular “Life Tenured Ruler,” being why our “Democracy” almost fell on January 6, 2021. He further believes if our Democracy is to make it, that any who we “Elect” to “Congress” or “President” must free us from the “Unaccountable” and “Life Tenured” Supreme Court before it is too late for us! In the Author’s own words:

“I am just glad that I was able to get our “People’s Book” “Nine Sovereign Kings: The Return of God” to all of us! Hopefully, our “People’s Book” will make it in time! For it was truly our Creator who “Inspired” and helped me write it! If there is anything else beyond this book that I can ever do to help the “American People,” I am here! For our Creator has even asked me to run for “President of the United States” in both 2024 and 2028! I was concerned about that when He did, for the thought had never crossed my mind before. However, that is something that is not my call, even though if the People chose for it to happen, I would accept that “Honor,” but only if myself, the People, and our Creator, agreed to all be “President Together!” – Author, Mike Ledbetter

And if you can believe that, he is with us! For in the “Author’s Words” once again:

“Not only do “We The People” need to be the “Sole and Exclusive” and “Last and Final” “Say” over our “Declaration of Independence,” both how it is to be interpreted and when a People should ever apply its “Truths” and “Principles” thereby acting upon them!” For as we all know, it was our People who knew when it was time to apply it to the “Life Tenured Ruler,” King George, before it was too late for them! We, likewise, need to always be the “Sole and Exclusive” and “Last and Final” “Say” over our People’s entire “Democratic Constitution,” if we are to truly “Forever Be and Remain Free” from all “Life Tenured Rulers,” including “Life Tenured Judge Rulers,” and be the “Rightful Rulers and Sovereigns” with our “Beloved Creator” over our “Democracy” and “Nation!” – Author, Mike Ledbetter

That being said, is the “Author” right? For the sake of all of us, all our “Families” and “Children” and their “Futures,” we each need to examine these questions and make sure we come up with the “Right Answer!” Was it our “People” and “Founding Fathers” alone, who had the right, rather than “Life Tenured Judge Rulers,” to decide when the “Truths” of our “Declaration of Independence” needed to be acted upon and implemented?

And the below statement by the “Author” surprises me most of all! For even though the “Author” points out in numerous places in his book and website, as to why the “Life Tenured Supreme Court” must be “Term Limited.” He still believes the following about the Court while sharing with us the main reasons why it must be “Term Limited.” For this is what the “Author” said:

“Please know that we still love the Court, even so, we have to find a way for it to do better by “Term Limiting” it to 8 years or less, preferably 4 years like the President! For the “Unaccountable Court” has even more power than our President in the sense of being the “Sole and Exclusive” and “Last and Final” “Say” over our entire “Democratic Constitution” and “All the Laws of the Land!” Moreover, in any “Government” or “Nation,” it is the “Ruler” with that particular power, especially if it is “Unaccountable,” where one will always find all the “Illegal,” “Immoral,” and “Unethical” activities, that exist in our world, bidding for the “Unaccountable Ruler’s” decisions to the harm and detriment of all the “Families” and “People” in that “Nation” everywhere!” – Author, Mike Ledbetter

Mr. Ledbetter then goes on to say:

“Therefore, please believe me when I say that the “Temptations” of “Power” and “Material Things,” that “Absolute,” “Unaccountable,” and “Life Tenured” “Power” will always create upon the mind of any man or woman is too great a “Temptation” for any person! It will lead to the eventual take over and coup d’état of any “Nation,” by that “Unaccountable Ruler’s” decisions and rulings, every single time! And it was an oversight for us to have ever allowed the Supreme Court to have ever become a “Ruler” equal with our “Accountable Representative Rulers, the President and Congress, without making the Court “Accountable” to us, our Representatives, and the Creator in addition at the same time!” – Author, Mike Ledbetter

The above quote having been shared, Is the “Author” right? Should all “Rulers” of a “Democracy” always be “Properly Checked” and “Made Accountable” to their “People” by the only method and way of doing so – “Term Limits” with either “Partisan Elections” or “Retention Elections?” And if ever just one “Ruler” in a “Democracy” was not “Accountable” to the “People” and “Creator” by “Term Limits,” what might happen in that Democracy as a result? Could it possibly be what we saw on January 6, 2021 being the attempted “Coup d’etat” take-over of our Capitol, Democracy, and Nation? These are “Interesting,” and I would even say, the “Most Important Questions,” to ever ask in a “Democracy,” especially while the “Democracy” is still standing! And I think everyone who reads this will agree with me! And if we all agree, should we not “Term Limit” the Supreme Court while we still have the time to do so? What do all of you think about it?

That being said, I will leave the final words of this “News Story” to the “Author” Mike Ledbetter! For he wanted this to be known and said after everything else:

“Everyone, I love you. And if you can believe this, our Creator, our Trinity God, of our Declaration of Independence, has sent me to help us help one another! Please enjoy the book and share it with others. For our Creator ‘Inspired’ our “People’s Book” for all of us, free to our People, so that we would know the way to both heal, save, and restore our “People,” “Democracy,” and “Nation!” Let us therefore “Term Limit” the “Life Tenured” Supreme Court to 8 year terms or less while we still have time to do so. In that way and truth, please know that I am here if you ever need me. Our Creator loves all of us as we love one another. “Your Friend Eternally Always,” Mike Ledbetter
