As face coverings go from a novelty to the norm during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s understandable that some frustrations would arise from wearing fabric on part of your face any time you might be around other people.

Teaneck NJ opens outdoor gym in Votee Park


Township Manager Dean Kazinci discusses features of the new outdoor fitness facility at Votee Park in Teaneck


TEANECK — A 13-station exercise equipment center has opened on the northeast side of Votee Park, and although it’s been in the works for a long time, the timing couldn’t be better.

The 2,100-square-foot rubber-padded area was proposed two years ago to replace exercise facilities on the west side of the park that had become outdated, according to Township Manager Dean Kazinci.

“There was a tremendous need to provide this outdoor service to our residents,” Kazinci said.  “With gyms not open, this provides a little relief for them.”

Indoor gyms in New Jersey remain under strict restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic, with only one-on-one sessions permitted.

The Department of Justice said Dr. Yun Sup Kim, 49, of St. Louis, appeared Thursday morning via videoconference at the federal courthouse in Benton, Illinois, and was sentenced to 12 months and one day in federal prison.

He entered a guilty plea for three counts of health care fraud back in February. The case against Kim came from a regulatory audit that was initiated in 2015 after claims data showed Kim had performed more cavity fillings and surgical tooth extractions than nearly any other dentist in Illinois.

According to a release from the Department of Justice, investigators found from August 2014 through December 2017, Kim had repeatedly submitted false bills for cavity fillings and surgical tooth extractions.
