How To Protect Yourself From Ticks

By Jennifer Peacock MANCHESTER – You won’t be fashionable, but dressing right is an important step to prevent tick-borne diseases. After proclaiming June as “Tick Awareness Month,” Mayor Kenneth Palmer invited Marion Goldberg from Master Gardeners of Ocean County to speak about the pests at a recent Township Council meeting.

Many audience members were scratching themselves when Goldberg was done with her presentation. As a master gardener, Goldberg is trained to count ticks and observe them under microscopes. Her reports go the county freeholders to keep them abreast of tick populations and associated diseases. “Over the years, every year, the number of ticks has

By Jennifer Peacock MANCHESTER – While the overall budget will go up, the Manchester municipal tax will decrease this year by about $30 for the average homeowner. “Our budget is going up a little bit from last year. We’re about a million dollars more. That’s the bad news of the budget,” Mayor Kenneth Palmer said. “The good news is that we’re asking our resident taxpayers to pay over half-a-million dollars less.”

“Our debt is pretty low compared to everybody else.” –Council President Craig Wallis Council - with member James Vaccaro absent May 26 - adopted the $35,039,021.85 budget, of which $20.6 million will be raised in local taxes, a decrease of $566,000 from 2017. The overall budget increased $1.13 million from last year’s budget. CFO Diane Lapp told The Manchester Times that the average homeowner, whose home is valued at $160,100, will have a municipal tax bill of $1,002.55. (Tax - See Page 10)

Continued From Page 1 of Superman” and “Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman,” visited the Manchester Middle School and addressed hundreds of students in the school gymnasium from the 6th, 7th and 8th grade class. His visit was made possible by the school district’s PTA. Nellianne Parr, donning a pink cape with a Superman emblem, said the PTA board reviews potential presenters including authors and knew that Nobleman and his topic would be a big hit among the students. Several students joined in with the fun wearing capes for the occasion. Seventh grade teacher Jen Santomenna went one step further and

wore a Superman T-shirt with her red cape. Regarding Jerry Siegel, the writer who co-created Superman, Nobleman said that a prior book had “never mentioned his dad in interviews with him. It was if he left his dad out on purpose, so I tried to fi nd out and at fi rst I failed.” He said he learned through his research that Siegel’s father Michael worked at a clothes store and that he had been robbed and shot. He said he learned that Michael Siegel had also been reported to have died from a heart attack after the robbery. “How could it have been wrong? It was put in a book and I wondered if when my book came out people would think I was wrong. I looked through police reports from 1932, his death certificate and a coroner’s report

that all said he died of a heart attack.” The author told students that they needed to “step away from the internet. It may be good as a starting point but as a writer you sometimes need to be a detective as well. Remember the old game of hide and seek? You can fi nd what others missed. You can use the internet but not all the time. Not in this age of fake news.” He relayed how Siegel and Shuster - the artist who co-created Superman - were a pair of Ohio teenagers who pushed their creation for nearly four years before a publisher who needed to fill an issue of Action Comics, fi nally gave it a go. That issue sold 130,000 copies at the time and this year, Superman is celebrating his 80th anniversary as a comic book character who was adapted to radio, cartoons and motion pictures. “That 10 cent comic is now worth much more than a dime. It made history a few years ago when one copy of it was sold for a million dollars. A family was evicted from their home and while cleaning out their house they found a copy. They knew its worth. Superman saved their house,” Nobleman said. “When Jerry and Joe had this idea they weren’t rich, famous and they were just a couple of kids but they changed the world. It could happen to you. Everyone gets ideas. Don’t be afraid. Don’t keep that idea to yourself to prevent that fear of rejection or you will feel the sting of never trying and never knowing if it would have worked,” Nobleman added. The author moved on to his other book,

“Bill the Boy Wonder” who was the second half of the creative team of Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Finger had never gotten his just due in his role of creating Batman’s back story or even his eventual look in the comic book. Nobleman noted that he got very little reference in letter pages of comics for his creative work outside of one reference that he co-created the original golden age Green Lantern. Nobleman was the fi rst writer to interview Finger’s second wife which also led to his interviewing his son Fred and his daughter Athena to flesh out the real story and to get Finger the recognition he had been denied in life. He noted that to even fi nd a photo of Finger from his high school required some detective work after the high school could not provide it. “I visited his school and they had no pictures of Bill. I left disappointed, but I talked to his second wife who said Bill was not his real name. His given name was Milton but he did not like that name and had it changed after he graduated.” “Nobleman’s work led to DC Comics acknowledging the late artist’s work after decades of his falling into the shadow of Bob Kane who had never acknowledged the equal role Finger played in the iconic character’s creation. Melissa DiDia, the PTA’s future president said that she enjoyed the author’s presentation. “We knew that he could inspire our students to do research and use their imagination when writing and superheroes are something kids really like.”

risen,” Goldberg said. “This is mostly due to the fact that animals are being driven out of their environment and into our environment.” It’s up to individuals to stay out of the ticks’ ways, she added. “You are going into their environment. It’s their home that you are stepping into. Therefore, you have to be aware that ticks are in mostly all tall grasses, uncut grass, tall weeds, and in dead leaf litter,” Goldberg said. Ticks hang onto blades of grass and don’t care about bicycles or strollers or cars. They are waiting for that signature scent that means mealtime: carbon dioxide. And you can’t hold your breath running through the fields; your body, your pet’s body, gives off CO2 as long as you live. Ticks typically work from the bottom up. The lazy ones will latch onto a toe or ankle. The blood-thirsty connoisseurs will find dark, moist spots further north: under the arms, in or around the ears, inside belly buttons, on the back of the knee, in and around hair, between the legs, around the waist or on the scalp. If you’re out walking, you should stay in the center of marked trails. If you can’t avoid grassy areas, you should wear long, light pants with the legs tucked into white socks.

The deer tick carries Lyme disease; the dog tick, Rocky Mountain spotted fever; the Lone Star tick, Ehrlichiosis, which as with so many diseases, presents flu-like symptoms. That’s also the infection that’s made the rounds, possibly causing those infected to become “allergic” to meat and dairy. “Which means it forces you to become a vegetarian,” Goldberg said. But any joking aside, she said she wants residents to stay safe. According for the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention, there were 3,332 confirmed cases of Lyme disease in 2016. Only Pennsylvania had more confirmed cases, with 8,988. There were a total of 26,203 cases in the U.S. The master gardeners through the Rutgers Cooperative Extension offer free tick testing five days a week year-round.

used on skin or permethrin for clothes, boots and camping gear. Walkers should shower once they get home, to help find any attached ticks and wash away those that haven’t bitten yet. Ticks should be checked for—from the soles of your feet to the top of your head, and everywhere in between - thoroughly. Ticks found and removed before or soon after they latch on usually haven’t had a chance to transmit any diseases to its unwilling host. Still, the New Jersey Department of Health recommends that ticks, if attached, be removed with tweezers as close to the skin as possible. Don’t twist or jerk the tick but pull straight up. Once the tick is removed, the skin should be cleaned with soap and water. A person only need call their physician if they present symptoms of a tick-borne disease. Those infected with an illness may experience skin rashes, fatigue, fever and chills, headaches, stiff necks, muscle aches, joint pain and dizziness. Again, these are the signs and symptoms of so many diseases. It’s best to check with a physician if you’ve been bitten recently. Most illnesses can take three days (Lyme disease, a bacteria) to up to 63 days (Babesiosis, a parasite) to show symptoms. Most illnesses can be treated effectively with antibiotics if caught early. Three tick species call New Jersey home, and a fourth invasive species that hasn’t been found in Ocean County… yet. The black-legged “deer” tick, the American dog tick, and Lone Star tick all carry diseases that are transmittable

OPINIONS & COMMENTARY F EATURED L ETTER Dinosaur And Its Artist Have History Together Af ter t wo years of waiting in the wings for approvals and permits it looks as though the g reen light has been given to me to start restoring the Bayville Dinosaur. I will start at the end of June and hope for a grand unveiling in early September. My sponsor, PPG Paints, has graciously come aboard with some fascinating new products that consist of an “environmentally green base.” Along with today’s standards, we are defi nitely on the same page in keeping the environment as safe as possible. I lived across the street from the Dinosaur when I was in my single digits. While attending St Joseph’s in Toms River my bus stop was right across the street. My Dad would take me and my siblings Joel and Dona, to visit the dinosaur constantly. My youngest brother Jay was just born so his visitation rights didn’t kick in until later on in life. It fascinated us when we were young. It seemed bigger than life! When my grandfather was running for mayor of Bayville we would give out matches with his face

on the cover. Folks at the IGA and Bayville Laundromat were big fans of his. After we gave out all the matches, as a treat, we headed over to visit the Dinosaur. As you can see…this “stone age statue” is no stranger to me. I can even remember when his eyes and mouth lit up with color. Sure, it was a simpler time - but the memories I have of this great monument must be one of thousands shared by others that once came to visit the coolest dinosaur in the world. Getting the chance to restore the friendly beast has been a dream for many years. For anyone that has grown up “Bayville” I know you have watched the dinosaur go through many changes, many colors and many decapitations. I hope this new change suits all of you and takes you back to your own memories of a far younger and simpler Bayville… when the innocence of simply visiting a man-made dinosaur was more than enough to put a smile on your face. Thanks for having me. Shannon MacDonald Artist Chosen To Restore The Roar To The Bayville Dinosaur

Letters To The Editor Beloved Teacher Remembered

The Donovan Catholic and St. Joseph’s Grade School family mourn the loss of our beloved teacher, Karin Krenek. Karin passed away suddenly on May 18 doing what she loved…sharing her love for theatre with students. Karin has been a part of our school communities for over two decades as a teacher and a parent of four children who graduated from our schools. Karin was not only a theatre teacher, a drama director, and an ESL teacher, she was an inspiration to all who knew her. Karin had the unique ability to invite a community that spanned generations to create productions that breathed “LOVE.” Karin knew the power of the arts, and she used the arts to honor people, to heal people and to build community. EVERYONE was welcome in Karin’s productions because she truly believed that every child of God had something unique and important to contribute. Karin’s home in the learning commons was a haven for young and old alike who needed a listening ear and an open heart. “Mama K,” as the students called her, always had time to laugh with, to cry with and to pray with students in need. Karin’s faith was the foundation of her life and she gathered students in prayer before every practice and performance. Her Donovan Arts memos often included requests for prayer for those in need of healing or help. Karin initiated the idea of “theatre retreats” and invited Donovan’s pastor/ director Father Scott Shaffer and Campus Minister, MaryBeth DeBlasio, to take her cast and crew away for two or three days to Maris Stella Retreat House in LBI where they participated in retreats based on gospel themes present in their particular show. Karin is probably the only director who, with two weeks left until show time, would say, “We

Letters To The EditorLacey Students’ are not practicing for two of anti-Semitism to bully or three days, instead we are going on retreat to pray together, to play together and to be nourished by Fr. Scott’s amazing cooking.” JoAnn D’Anton, marketing director for Donovan and Madeline Kinloch, St. Joseph’s Grade School principal, also participated as “sous chefs” and chaperones on these retreats. “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Mary Poppins,” “Guys and Dolls,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “The Lion King” were some of the shows that were enriched by these retreats. Karin felt that as Catholic educators we have the obligation to incorporate our faith into every aspect of our students’ life. Karin was a community builder who taught the high school students to pass their love of theatre and of God on to the students in St. Joseph’s Grade School. Cast and crew from the high school worked as small group leaders on the grade’s school’s “Lion King” retreat this past February. Dress rehearsals of her musicals were open to St. Joseph’s Parish religious education students and the interaction between the cast and these young students ref lected the love that Mrs. Krenek shared with them. Karin was someone who never had an unkind word to say and who always brought light and joy and hope to those who crossed her path. She will be deeply missed by our community. Donovan Catholic Staff

Toms River Council Not Anti-Semitic Toms R iver Republican Council members responded ang r ily to repeated accusations of anti-Semitism being espoused publicly, both directly and indirectly, by local pro - developme nt attorney Harvey York. The Republicans said that York is using accusations

the township into approvi ng addit ional housi ng units that it cannot afford. “Trying to chill legitimate debate about development decisions by labeling elected officials and residents as anti-Semitic if they voice opposition is offensive” said Councilwoman Maria Maruca. “Mr. York needs to know that our local elected officials will not be bullied or intimidated into approving more development by him falsely accusing us of anti-Semitism. We want to cu r t ail development because our town can’t afford it and our residents don’t want it,” said Council President Brian Kubiel. “Is Mr. York’s contention that every Toms River resident who wants to slow development is a racist? That’s a despicable attack against our residents and we won’t stand for it now or ever.” “Mr. York’s conduct in furthering this ugly narrative is a poorly veiled attempt to secure favorable outcomes for his client’s project s - wh ich mea n more development, additional traffic and higher taxes,” said Councilman Mo Hill, “trying to label elected officials and residents as Anti-Semitic if they try to reduce density in Toms River is offensive.” Toms River Republican Off icials point to published newspaper accounts of Mr. York’s comments regarding a rezoning ordinance put forth at a recent Council Meeting. “The Taxpayers of Toms R iver w ill not be held hostage to reckless development interests and high-priced legal mercenaries to shame or intimidate our town into making planning decisions at odds with the interests of our t a x p aye r s ,” c onclu d e d Councilman George Wittmann.

Gun Training Is Wrong

On May 20, Lacey High School students attended a training event, during which they were given firearms, from handguns to AR-15s. The trainers said it was to teach the students gun safety. However, that’s not what actually happened. The students were handed guns which they’re too young to buy, then were trained to use them. The definition of “gun safety” taught to underage children was that in order to be safe, you need a gun. The problem is that this “lesson” is factually incorrect. A study done by the Rutgers School of Nursing showed that children taught this kind of “gun safety” are no less likely to handle guns unsupervised. When you consider another conclusion of the study, that 85 percent of gun-owning parents don’t practice safe gun storage, the effect of the training was simply kids getting excited about guns, which many already had access to. The event was supposed focus on safety. Yet, the event’s Chief Training Officer said himself, “One of the goals I wanted to set was to show people, ‘This is fun. I feel good.’” June 2 was National Gun Violence Awareness Day, during Wear Orange Weekend from June 1-3. I used to think awareness wasn’t the issue, but that’s clearly not the case. If guns meant safety, America would 2.5 times as safe as any other country. Yet, we’re 25 times more likely to be killed by guns than people in other developed nations. But most people aren’t aware of that, in part, because people like the hosts of this event say that kids one day “collecting guns…would be a win for us.” When children’s lives are on the line, the stakes are too high not to act. And so, on June 2nd, I wore orange, and marched, and fought to actually make New Jersey’s kids safe. Eytan Stern Weber NJ Communications Lead Moms Demand Action

Manasquan Inlet Will See Emergency Dredging From The Desk Of


Chris Smith WASHINGTON, D.C. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has agreed to perform emergency d redgi ng of the Manasquan Inlet to maintain safe navigation for boat traffic, Rep. Chris Smith (R-th) announced in Point Pleasant Beach, where he was at the invitation of Mayor Steve Reid to inspect areas of the inlet first-hand. In late April, Mayor Reid contacted Congressman

Smith requesting assistance with “an urgent navigation issue” - the shoaling at the mouth of the inlet resulting in shallow channel depth. Since the inlet is a federally-maintained channel, Smith reached out immediately to the Army Corps of Engineers to report the local concerns and request that the Corps survey the channel depth to determine if additional sand was building up in the channels and

decreasing navigation. “Our regional economy - commercial fishing, recreational fishing, boating and summer tourism, and all the jobs these activities generate - depends upon the health and safety of the Manasquan Inlet,” said Smith, who represents several shore communities in Ocean and Monmouth counties. “I am grateful that the mayor brought this potentially devastating problem to the fore and appreciate that the Army Corps responded with a fact-fi nding survey and a critical decision to dredge as soon as possible.” After being contacted by Smith, the USACE performed a channel depth survey on May 2 and con-

firmed the shoaling near the entrance to the inlet channel. The authorized depth of the channel for safe navigation is 14 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW), and the USACE survey indicates some areas which are less than that. “According to the Army Corps, the January 2018 survey shows a clear channel, so the shoaling has occurred since then and fairly rapidly versus previous years,” Smith added. Though the government’s dredge, the Currituck, was scheduled to perform regular maintenance dredging in late July, Smith pressed the Corps to have an emergency “clean up” dredging take place sooner to clear the ad-

ditional sand and maintain a safe channel. “This emergency dredging the Army Corps is scheduling for mid-June will likely not remove the entire shoal, but it will help to greatly alleviate any navigation issue until the maintenance dredging occurs in July,” Smith added. “So, from our standpoint, from an industry standpoint - both as Marine Trades Association, Recreational Fishing Alliance, United Boatmen, all of the entities that represent people who utilize this inlet, and then the general public - can’t thank the congressman enough nor the mayor enough. This is a big, big deal,” said Ray Bogan, legal counsel for the Marine

Trades Association of New Jersey, Recreational Fishing Alliance, and United Boatmen of New Jersey. “We are grateful that the Congressman stepped in proactively on this issue,” said Mayor Reid. “The commercial and recreational fishing industries in Point Pleasant Beach and the surrounding communities generate millions of dollars of revenue annually, employing hundreds of area residents.” Reid added, “Assuring that the Manasquan inlet remains one of the safest and most navigable waterways in New Jersey is critical to the survival of our fishing f leet and the people and businesses which serve it.”

Bill Would Protect Minors Left Alone When Parents Are Detained By Immigration Officials Capitol Comments Senator Cory Booker

Capitol Comments Senator Robert Menendez

WASHI NGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker cosponsored legislation that would protect the safety and well-being of minor children who have been left alone and vulnerable after their parents have been arrested or detained by U.S. immigration authorities. The lawmakers said the Humane Enforcement and Legal Protections (HELP) for Separated Child ren Act is necessary because in the past children have been abandoned at home

or at school after their parents’ detention, often without information about their parents’ location and without adequate arrangements for their care. They said that with the Trump Administration seeking to step up enforcement operations targeting immigrant families, and planning to separate children from their parents during enforcement operations, action is needed to protect children impacted by the administration’s actions. The HELP Separated Chil-

dren Act’s protections for these children include: Allowing parents to make calls to ar range for the care of their children and ensuring that children can call and visit their parents while they are detained; Allowing parents to participate in family court proceedings affecting their children; Protecting children from being compelled to serve as translators for their parents in immigration enforcement actions; Ensuring that parents can coordinate their departures with their children, including allowing parents to say goodbye to their children prior to being taken into custody; and Requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to consider the best interests of children in detention, release, and transfer decisions affecting their parents. According to a 2011 study, there are more than five million child ren in the United States living with

at least one unauthorized immigrant parent. The vast majority of these children are U.S. citizens. These children are vulnerable when their parents are the subjects of immigration enforcement, detention, and removal actions. When parents facing detention are not given the opportunity to make arrangements for the care of their children, this not only results in serious, avoidable trauma to children and families, but also unnecessary expenses for the state. Children of detained parents have been needlessly taken into the custody of state or local child welfare agencies. In the most extreme cases, because of their parents’ inabilit y to par ticipate in family court hearings, these children have been adopted or placed into foster care with well-meaning American families. Even

when the outcome is not ter mination of parental rights, enforcement can lead to de facto permanent separation of children from their parents and cause tremendous harm to children, undermining their sense of security and even inflicting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In 2013, during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s markup of the comprehensive immigration reform bill, the previous version of the HELP Separated Children Act was the only amendment - out of nearly 200 amendments - to pass by a unanimous roll call vote. Joining Sens. Menendez and Booker on the legislation are Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), Tammy Duck-

wor th (D-Ill.), Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Edward Markey (D-Mass.), Jeff Merk ley (D - Ore.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). Congresswoman Roybal-Allard (Calif.-40) introduced the HELP Separated Child ren Act in the House of Representatives, where its cosponsors i nclude Cong ressmembers Ad r iano Espaillat (N.Y.-13), Ruben Gallego (Ariz.-07), Pramila Jayapal (Wash.-07), Grace Napolitano (Calif.-32), Darren Soto (Fla.-09), and Filemon Vela (Texas-34).

That same home was valued at $158,500 last year, with municipal taxes of $1,031.04. The tax rate was reduced from .651 to .626 this year. The township ended 2017 with $7.5 million in surplus, $3.3 million of which was applied to its 2018 budget. The surplus has steadily climbed from a bit more than $2 million in 2012 to nearly $8 million in 2017. Those numbers do not include the school or county taxes, over which neither the mayor’s administration nor council has control. “I think at this time, Mayor Palmer should get some credit for keeping us well within the bounds of the municipal budget. Mr. Mayor, thank you very much,” Councilman Charles Frattini said at the end of Palmer’s budget presentation to a round of applause. The capital improvement budget more than doubled to $1.1 million. The township will be purchasing a $700,000 fire truck for the Whiting Fire Department and spending $400,000 on paving projects, without bonding. The township, as with every municipality, has statutory expenses dictated by the state. The pension contributions increased to $620,000 this year. Negotiated salaries increased by $493,000. Salaries account for 43 percent of the municipal budget, insurance 15 percent, statutory spending 14 percent, operations 23 percent and debt 5 percent. Council President Craig Wallis asked how Manchester compares with other munici-

palities on its debt service. “Our debt is pretty low compared to everybody else,” Wallis said. Lapp said she couldn’t compare Manchester with other towns, not knowing what their debt is, but that Manchester has much less debt than what it is allowed to have by law. “I would say…we do very well with our debt,” Lapp said. “We’re starting to do a pay-as-you-go type financing that will help us out in the future too.” State aid will remain stagnant at $3.22 million, although Palmer said that number may increase slightly with the inclusion of some last-minute grants the township received. As host community to the Ocean County Landfi ll, Manchester gets more than $1 million. Inspections, HIF refund and municipal court fi nes also bring in about $3.75 million. Looking ahead, Palmer, who is up for reelection this year, said the township must start to plan for a new water tower (an addition to the one between Routes 70 and 37 near Colonial Drive), a pavement plan, and contract negotiations this year with several unions. Revitalizing the township parks is also on the agenda. Other notable points in the budget include: • The eastern water budget increased $20,000 to $2.55 million. Capital improvements will total $140,000. • The eastern side sewer budget is $4.3 million, a reduction of $25,000. • The western side water is $2.7 million, a reduction of $100,000. • The western side sewer is $2.578 million, a reduction of $157,000. A copy of the adopted budget can be found at

Ocean County Proclamation: June Is Tick Awareness Month

OCEAN COUNTY – The Ocean County Rutgers Master Gardener’s initiative to make our county residents more tick aware has been a huge success. In late April, early May, each township was sent a proclamation asking the mayor and town council to declare June 2018 as Tick Awareness Month. During the month of May and June, over twenty-one of our thirty-three townships have adopted the proclamation. Thank you to all the council members supporting our efforts in helping our residents be tick aware. The Rutgers Master Gardeners will be around the county at events with tick safety information. Tick Awareness Events Schedule: • June 9, 9:30-3:30 p.m. Master Gardeners’ Table at Bug Fest – Insectropolis - Toms River • June 9, 10-4:00 p.m. Master Gardeners’ Table at Island Heights Garden Tour - Island Heights • June 13, 7 p.m. Toms River Library Program on ticks • June 15, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Master Gardeners’ Table at Recreation Celebration Day - Ocean Co. Park • June 27, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Master Gardeners’

Table at Toms River Farmers Market • June 29, 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Master Gardeners’ Table at Seaside Park Farmers Market Free tick identification is available at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Ocean County at 1623 Whitesville Road in Toms River. If you find a tick, place the tick in a sealed baggie or container with a piece of moist towel. Staff and Master Gardeners are here Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. to identify ticks and answer other horticultural issues. Once we identify the tick, we discuss with you information about that tick species, potential diseases it can carry, and symptoms for which to watch. As we are not medical personnel, you should seek medical advice on a course of action. Neither the RCE nor the Ocean County Health Department test ticks for disease. We have a list of labs you can send the tick to be tested. However, testing will only show if that tick was carrying disease, not that transmission occurred.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, Grammy Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame members and Songwriter Hall of Fame, The Rascals are coming together to perform for the first time in five years, stopping in Toms River on their tour. “I had an epiphany while performing in Hawaii last year,” Cavaliere said. “It’s not about me – it’s about the fans.

Sci-Fi Author Fonda Lee Visits MTHS

By Jennifer Peacock MANCHESTER - “Go out and live life, have more experiences.” So said author Fonda Lee during a recent visit to Manchester Township High School students. Lee is the author of science fiction young adult books, “Zeroboxer,” “Exo” and “Cross Fire.” She also published “Jade City.” Most scribes have day jobs, uncertain if they can carry themselves with writing alone. For Lee, that meant a business degree and a power suit in the corporate world. But it was with her job at Nike as a corporate strategist that she met her muse for her first novel, “Zeroboxer:” a young LeBron James, then barely legal drinking age, so young to have such celebrity stature and confidence. “That made me really think about the concept of sports celebrity,” she said. “I’m not really into sports like basketball and football but I am into martial arts and I thought that would be the ideal sports celebrity of the future.” Lee took that nugget of an idea and developed it through her science fiction lens, inspired by the book and its author that she cites as a huge influence on her own work: “Frankenstein,” the sci-fi written by the18-year-old Mary Shelley and published two years later in 1818. “She was just a teenage girl when she wrote it and she had to publish under her husband’s name,” Lee said. “It was the first real science fiction novel…it

was a product of its time but it is still relevant today.” (The book was published anonymously, with a preface by her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley.) Ask most people and they’ll say they should write a book. But ideas aren’t books, and in the age of Ask Alexa, research is paramount. District PIO Lee Bruzaitis said the author explained that research helps her add details to a story that give it credibility. Time moves more quickly on the red planet than it does Earth: six minutes on Mars is 6 minutes 11 seconds on Earth, which became the length of a boxing round for her book. Her Martians were vegetarian; water is too scarce to raise livestock. Characters have ocular implants and cuff devices similar to cell phones, items that exist in science fiction but are hurtling toward reality, as is genetic engineering. “I look at what’s going on today and make inferences on what it could be like on the future,” Lee said. As for her aliens and their worlds, she wanted to show both as complex rather than the good guy/ bad guy dynamic. “Aliens are an analogy for other people, meeting other people that are different…Aliens are a standin for other,” she said. “Science fiction is really a way to hold up a mirror to ourselves.” English teacher Marjon Weber organized Lee’s visit, which was funded by the Manchester PTA.

Toms River Artist Community Hosting Art Show For Manchester Students

By Kimberly Bosco TOMS RIVER – Manchester Township High School students are getting a chance to have their work on display at the Toms River Artist Community Gallery (TRAC) in Downtown Toms River. The TRAC has organized an art show for the

students where TRAC artists will judge and choose winners. Winners will be presented at a gallery reception on June 13, 5-7 p.m. “We are truly excited to be exhibiting our students’ work at TRAC,” said MTHS art teachers Teena Spinelli-O’Connell and Ashley Gawlik. Spinelli-O’Connell and Gawlik

are coordinating the student entries for the show. The art show is expected to consist of about 40-50 pieces of work ranging from 2D to 3D mediums, including: painting, charcoal, drawing, clay, papier mache, and mixed media.

The TRAC is a group of creators looking to improve and enhance creativity and facilitate opportunities within the art world, in the greater Toms River area. TRAC also has an art gallery inside the Downtown Shops@53 Main St., public shows, and events that are open to the public year-round. “Community outreach is very important to us and the art show for the students of Manchester Township High School is an example of that,” said Travis Applegate, TRAC president.

Taking Charge: 7 Tips For Longer-Lasting Hearing Aid Batteries

The dinner was delicious, the dishes are done, and you’re settling in for a double feature on Netflix only to hear the “beep, beep” of your nonrechargeable hearing aid batteries going dead. Argh! How can you make the next set of nonrechargeables last longer? Take control with these seven tips: Find the Right Match: Batteries are available in various sizes, types, and performance levels, so it’s important to find the right fit for your hearing aids. Count on your hearing-care specialist, who can help ensure your hearing devices are matched up with the appropriate battery products. Prepare Before You Pull: Hearing aid batteries come with a stay-fresh colored tab that helps keep them from discharging prematurely. Once the tab’s pulled and the batteries activate, however, they can’t be deactivated, so first be sure you’re ready to use ’em. Wait 3-5 minutes before closing the battery door or the voltage of the battery would get to 1.45 volts. Acquire Only What You Need: It might seem like a good idea to stockpile lots of batteries, but even those that remain unopened in their packaging can lose power over time. Limit your supply to what you’ll reasonably put into service in a year, and use those with the earliest sell-by dates first. Power Down: Just as turning off lights conserves energy and saves bulb life, powering down your devices when not using them helps batteries last. Turn off your hearing aids — including completely opening the battery door — when they’re not in use.

Keep Water Out: Moisture — practically kryptonite to hearing aids — can damage batteries, too. Protect your devices from water sources including sweat, and help further reduce moisture by leaving the battery door open to dry out after removing the batteries at night. Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Hot cars and super-cold spaces aren’t great places for your hearing aid batteries. Extreme temperatures can do a number on battery life, so store them at room temperature whenever possible and not in the refrigerator. Rein Them In: Loose change in your pockets or purse always comes in handy, but loose batteries are a no-no. Batteries can react negatively with metals such as keys and coins, so consider storing them separately in their own packaging or another container. Getting the most out of your batteries helps you get the most from your hearing technology — and save money, too! For more tips and tricks on making your batteries last longer, call us today at 732-818-3610. Remember at Garden State Hearing when you purchase hearing aids the batteries are FREE. Dead Batteries? Consider Recycling Most newer household batteries no longer contain mercury, but they still have toxic elements that can pollute waterways and impact air quality. When getting rid of old batteries, recycling may be an option. Check with your city, county, or state household hazardous waste management program for proper recycling or disposal options.

Dr. Izzy and his staff are always available to answer most of your questions regarding your hearing health. His offices are in Toms River, Whiting, and Manahawkin. He can be reached at 732-818-3610 or via Web site at Expanded Whiting Hours!

7 Medical Benefits Of Kiwi Fruit By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.

Kiwi is among my favorite fruits of all time. It’s also known as “Chinese Gooseberry.” The little black seeds in kiwi do more than just get stuck in your teeth. They give you a small amount of healthy omega 3 fatty acids. An average kiwi has about 30 milligrams of alpha-linolenic acid. Kiwi is a great source of natural vitamin C and A. It is a good source of natural folate, thiamin and riboflavin. Kiwi also offers some vitamin K (phylloquinone) and minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. In this regard, it’s great for blood pressure and bones! The fleshy part green part gives you an added bonus of fiber which promotes smooth traffic through your colon (regularity) and simulate healthy probiotic growth. 1. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Kiwi has compounds in it that reduce activation of intestinal cells which ruin your gut. This reduces inflammation in the gut. 2. Asthma and Wheezing - Kiwi is rich in all kinds of antioxidants especially vitamin C which promotes collagen, and that promotes healthy breathing. There was a study published in Thorax that evaluated children and asthma symptoms. The kiwi-consuming group had less wheezing and noticed fewer nocturnal coughing fits. 3. Depression and PMS Melancholy - Some foods are naturally high in serotonin and tomatoes are one of them. Kiwis have twice as much serotonin as tomatoes. Serotonin is a “happy” brain

chemical that lifts mood, induces relaxation and boosts self-esteem. People who are aggressive or hostile, or live in “fight” mode might be low in serotonin. I have a longer version of this article at my website in case you want more details. Eating kiwis can essentially make a person feel more content because it acts as a natural fruit anti-depressant! 4. Sleep - Serotonin converts in the body to melatonin, a sleep hormone. So eating kiwis should help you fall asleep faster, and sleep a little bit longer. Eat one or two right after dinner. 5. Your eyes - Natural antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin are needed to support vision. Kiwi contains these special eye-loving nutrients. If you’re suffering with glaucoma or cataracts, why not eat a kiwi today each day as part of your diet. 6. Respiratory Infections - There was some research published in Advances in Food and Nutrition Research in 2013. Compounds in kiwi were found to modulate the immune response making it a great fruit to eat if you have suppressed immunity or chronic sinus/lung infections. 7. Anemia - If you’re iron deficient and supplementing with iron tablets, you can boost the amount of iron your body takes up with vitamin C containing fruits such as kiwi or orange juice. Kiwi is a refreshing fruit that has many medical benefits. Just be aware that you might be allergic to kiwi if you’re allergic to peanuts. There is a cross-sensitivity with tree nuts and kiwi. If you’ve never had it before, be sure to peel the fuzzy skin off before eating it.

NJ Natural Gas To Decrease Rates For 2018-2019 Winter Season

WALL – New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG), the regulated subsidiary of New Jersey Resources (NYSE: NJR), recently submitted its annual Basic Gas Supply Service (BGSS) and Conservation Incentive Program (CIP) filing to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) seeking an overall decrease of 3.6 percent for the typical residential heating customers for the 2018-2019

winter heating season. Pending BPU approval, the typical residential heating customer using 1,000 therms a year would see their annual bill go from $1,022.54 to $985.84 effective October 1, 2018, a savings of $36.70. “Today’s filing reflects the impact of last winter’s cold weather, which was 13.3 percent colder than the previous year and 1.5

percent colder than normal,” said Stephen Westhoven, COO of New Jersey Natural Gas. “We are pleased to provide this rate decrease and pass these savings along to our customers.” In its filing, NJNG is seeking a 5.3 percent decrease for the typical residential heating customer related to its CIP due to the colder weather experienced this past winter

heating season. The CIP normalizes yearto-year fluctuation from changing weather and usage patterns on both customers’ bills and NJNG’s financial margins. NJNG also requested approval to maintain its current BGSS rate and increase its Balancing Charge resulting in an increase of 1.7 percent. The BGSS and Balancing Charge recover the costs of natural gas supply delivered to NJNG’s system to serve its customers and balance deliveries with customer usage. When combined with CIP, the impact of this filing is an overall decrease of 3.6 percent. Earlier this year, NJNG filed for a 1.1 percent increase for the recovery of costs associated with its New Jersey Reinvestment in System Enhancement and Safety Acceleration and Facility Enhancement II programs. If approved by the BPU, this rate adjustment will also go into effect October 1, 2018. When combined with today’s BGSS and CIP filing, the savings for the typical residential heating customer using 1,000 therms would go to 2.5 percent annually, or $25.84 a year. In a separate filing, NJNG is seeking a 1 percent decrease to its Energy-Efficiency (EE) rate effective January 1, 2019, providing an additional $10.40 in savings. NJNG’s EE rate recovers costs associated with offerings through The SAVEGREEN Project, including investment in energy-efficient equipment upgrades and whole-house improvements. Pending regulatory approval, the typical customer using 1,000 therms a year would see their annual bill go from $996.70 to $986.30.

Dear Joel

By Joel Markel

A Bible-believing & Christ-centered Church

Father’s Day Gift

Dear Joel, My husband is an amazing father to our three children ages 8, 10, and 14. He goes to their school events, reviews their homework and spends time with them on the weekends. When I asked them what ideas they had concerning Father’s Day all I got was a few grunts followed by “I don’t know.” Their lack of interest really disappoints me. What can you suggest I do to make this Father’s Day a memorable one? Answer I’ll admit buying gifts for dad isn’t always easy, so rather than a gift, why not have them participate in an activity that will remind them just how lucky they are to have such a special father. How about putting together a video with

Whiting Assembly of God

83 Lacey Road (Rt. 530)

pictures from their favorite times together or have them write a song using dad’s favorite expressions and hobbies which they would perform on Father’s Day. Be sure to record the whole thing. They might be kicking and screaming at the start and that’s o.k. They’ll learn that being grateful and appreciative is cool and by the end I’m sure they will have really had fun while they count their blessings.

Inside The Law Time To Review Your Will

Robert C. Shea Esq.

By Marc S. Galella, Esq, of R.C. Shea and Associates

Anytime is a good time to review your estate planning documents. Let’s start with your Last Will and Testament. Have you reviewed it in the last year? If not, now is a good time. First, look at the persons who you have appointed as your executor, guardian and trustee. Are those persons still capable of acting in that capacity? Are they still willing to act? Is there any reason why you would not want them to act under your Will? Review the specific bequests and devises in your Will. This is the part of the Will where you leave specific items, real estate or money to specific persons. Are those persons still worthy of receiving those assets? Are there additional persons that you want add to your Will? Do you still own the items identified in your Will? Are there any other items that you want to leave to specific persons? Review the persons named in your Will who are receiving the remainder of your estate. Are those persons still deserving of your assets? If you are leaving your estate in different percentages to your beneficiaries, are those percentages still what you want? Are they any other persons who you want to add to your Will? Are any of the persons named in your Will incapacitated or receiving governmental benefits? Perhaps the assets left to those persons are best left in a trust.

Review your Power of Attorney. Are the persons you appointed in that document still capable of acting for Marc S. Galella Esq. you? Do they still want to act on your behalf? Are there other persons who you want to name to act for you? Is there any reason why a person that you named should no longer act for you? Do you have a Power of Attorney? Maybe you did not need one the last time you prepared a Will, but maybe you should consider preparing one now. Review your Living Will. Ask yourself the same questions as your Power of Attorney. Has there been any changes in your medical conditions that would change the medical directives in your current Living Will? If after reviewing your current estate planning documents you feel that they should be changed, now is the time to discuss your concerns with an estate planning attorney. The attorneys at R. C. Shea and Associates have over 100 combined years of preparing estate planning documents. Call us to schedule an appointment to review your documents with you.

Our clients’ success is our greatest reward. 732-505-1212 ● RCSHEA.COM

AROUND THE JERSEY SHORE Ocean County Officials: Get Ready For Hurricane Season

By Kimberly Bosco TOMS RIVER – Ocean County officials remind residents to be prepared for hurricane season, beginning June 1 and lasting through the end of November. The height of hurricane season typically lands around late August and September, however tropical systems can develop any time, so it is important to be prepared. “We have learned many valuable lessons from Superstorm Sandy which devastated the area in October of 2012,” said Ocean County Freeholder John P. Kelly, Director of Law and Public Safety. “We know that being prepared is the key to our safety and taking the time to make sure you have a plan in case of an emergency could be lifesaving if disaster strikes.” The National Weather Service lists surge f looding, inland f looding from heavy rains, destructive winds, tornadoes, and high surf and rip currents as the biggest hurricane hazards. Officials urge residents to prepare by having a portable Disaster Supplies Kit at all times. The kit should be updated every six months and include a gallon of drinking water a day for each person, prescription drugs and special dietary foods, a supply of non-perishable foods, a first aid kit, a battery powered radio, flashlights, and extra batteries “As a coastal area, it is imperative that residents and visitors of Ocean County are aware of the risks that are faced during a hurricane, tropical storm or a nor’easter,” said Ocean County Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy. “Knowing how to prepare before a storm, how to take action as the storm approaches and even knowing what to do during a storm are all types of questions to think about to be better prepared in case of danger.” When preparing for a storm, don’t forget about your pets. It is also important to have Animal Supply Kits and Take-Along Bags for service animals and pets. These include a two-week supply of water and food, non-spill food and water dishes, cage/carrier labeled with contact information, favorite toys and treats, leash,

collar and harness, litter, litter pan, paper towels and plastic baggies, and pet medication. Pets should also have current ID tags and vaccinations, according to officials. Make sure to have a plan as to how your pets will be cared for if you have to evacuate. Officials also urge residents with disabilities or special needs to sign up for Register Ready, New Jersey’s Special Needs registry for disasters which helps emergency responders better plan to serve them in disaster or emergency situations. “Register Ready is a free, voluntary program that allows for extra preparation in the case of a major emergency,” Kelly said. “It will not only help our residents who may need assistance but it will also provide information to emergency responders so that residents could be checked on during weather events.” To register online, go to “The Ocean County Office of Emergency Management under the direction of Sheriff Mastronardy does a great job providing resources during an emergency,” Kelly said. “Residents should also keep up on the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for information as the hurricane risk heightens.” Advisories to stay alert for are a “hurricane watch” and a “hurricane warning.” For a list of hurricane-related resources, visit An Emergency Preparedness Disaster Tips pamphlet is also available throughout the county including the Health Department located at 175 Sunset Ave. and the County Connection at the Ocean County Mall. “Residents can use the Health Department’s Emergency Preparedness Disaster Tips pamphlet as a guideline for their own preparations,” Little said. “It is a great starting point to make sure your family is aware of the steps to take in case of an emergency.” For more information on emergency preparedness, visit the Ocean County Government webpage at and by clicking on the ‘Be Prepared’ link.

By Kimberly Bosco RED BANK – The Count Basie Center for the Arts recently received a $20,000 grant to fund its “Curtains Up For Kids” and “Kids Shows at the Basie” programs. The grant comes from the The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. “This grant from The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey will enable the Basie Center to continue its important work in creating programming for schools, and attracting popular children’s titles so that families may experience the joy of theater,” said Maria Sorensen, Vice President, Development, Count Basie Center for the Arts. “We are very grateful for the Horizon Foundation’s support of these initiatives.” The “Curtains Up For Kids” is a school bus-in program that combines educational, onstage performance with visits from teach-

ing artists, and classroom materials. This program has provided over 40,000 students with the experience, perhaps their first, of live theater since 2013. The “Kids Shows at the Basie” program is a series of family-friendly programming, producing onstage adaptations of childhood favorites like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” or “Goodnight Moon” to performances starring favorites like Daniel Tiger and Peppa Pig. “We are pleased to support the Count Basie Center for the Arts,” said Jonathan R. Pearson, Executive Director of The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey. “The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey works closely with grantees who share our commitment to expand access to the arts and improve the quality of life throughout New Jersey communities.”

Ocean County Couple Plead Guilty To Superstorm Sandy Fraud

By Jennifer Peacock OCEAN COUNTY – Convictions about Superstorm Sandy fraud continue to be made. The state attorney general’s office today announced the conviction of an Ocean County couple who pled guilty to stealing more than $1.4 million from 20+ victims who hired them to fix home damage from the hurricane. The couples hired them with hurricane relief funds, and the couple instead spent the money on luxury items and gambling. This Little Egg Harbor couple—Jeffrey Colmyer, 42, and Tiffany Cimino, 34—pleaded guilty to theft by failure to make required

disposition of property received in Superior Court today. Colmyer also pled guilty to second degree money laundering. The couple took a plea deal, which will see Colmyer serving 7 years in state prison and Cimino sentenced to probation. The couple must also pay back $695,402 to the victims and $655,243 to the state, as well an additional $104,000 in other restitution. In addition, Colmyer must pay $56,472 in back taxes. The couple owned Rayne Construction Management Services LLC, and Colmyer & Sons LLC. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 7.

he Sciatic Nerve is the largest nerve in the body. It begins in the lower back, travels through the buttock and the back of the thigh, divides into two nerves at the knee and ends at your toes. The term “sciatica” refers to a set of symptoms including pain in the low back, buttock, and legs, which can radiate below the knee to the feet and toes. This radiating pain can be experienced in one or both legs along with numbness, tingling and muscle weakness in the hips, knees and ankles. It is important to understand that the term “sciatica” does not describe the specific causes of the radiating pain, which many individuals from their twenties to their nineties experience. There are two common causes of sciatic pain. Sciatic pain is most commonly caused by compression of lumbar or sacral nerve roots as they exit the spinal cord. The most common cause for nerve compression causing sciatica in the younger population is lumbar disc herniation. It has been reported that as high as 90% of all cases of sciatic pain are due to spinal disc herniations which impinge upon the nerve roots where the sciatic nerve originates. The compression or pressing of the nerve roots can cause pain, tingling, muscle weakness, or poor muscle control of the areas supplied by the sciatic nerve. Individuals with lumbar disc herniations, also known as lumbar disc bulges or slipped discs, usually experience increased radiating sciatic pain with forward bending and sitting. Work and daily activities often become limited. Physical therapy and instruction in patient specific exercises to reduce discal nerve impingement and to increase spinal flexibility and core strength have consistently shown to decrease and eliminate sciatic and lumbar pain. The McKenzie approach is a widely used physical therapy regimen. In this approach patients repeatedly perform specific exercises which mechanically reduce the process of disc herniation as discal material (nucleus propulsus) is pressed away from the irritated nerve roots and back toward or into the outer casing of the disc (annulus fibrosus). Treatment then focuses on strengthening postural muscles of the spine and trunk to

limit the possibility of symptom recurrence. The second most common cause of sciatic pain is lumbar spinal stenosis. Most people with lumbar spinal stenosis are over the age of fifty. It is estimated that more than 400,000 people in the United States have leg and/or lower back pain which is attributed to lumbar stenosis. The term stenosis means “choking” and is the result of the spinal cord or nerve roots being compressed within the spinal column. Stenosis is often the result of joint and disc degeneration. Sciatica from lumbar spinal stenosis usually progresses slowly and often becomes more severe with time. The low back pain and radiating buttock or leg pain will often subside for periods but, unfortunately, will often return. In most cases people with lumbar stenosis have pain with standing, walking and transitioning from a sitting to a standing position. This is due to the fact that when the lumbar spine is extended or straight, the nerve roots have less room as they exit the spinal cord and can be compressed. Patients with lumbar stenosis usually have relief when sitting and often prefer to stand with a slouched posture which reduces nerve compression and pain. The exercise prescription for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis focuses on increasing flexibility in the spine and legs and maximizing patient walking and daily activity tolerance without worsening pain. Patients are often not able to tolerate exercise in the standing position due to the irritation of tight muscles; therefore focus is initially on loosening up those muscles to decrease symptoms. Once symptom reduction begins, the patient can usually tolerate exercises to strengthen the lower extremities, spine and trunk in positions, notably standing, where they had experienced pain during the day. The goal is to have the patient be able to perform exercises and stretches which allow them to increase their tolerance to walking and standing activities. The third most common cause of sciatica is piriformis syndrome. In the past it was believed to cause approximately 6% of reported cases of sciatica, however recent EMG studies have shown that piriformis syndrome may be a more common source of sciatica. The sciatic nerve runs deep through the buttocks just beneath the

piriformis muscle. In 10 to 15% of individuals however, it is believed the nerve runs directly through the muscle. These individuals may be at an increased risk of piriformis syndrome. Patients with piriformis syndrome usually feel worse in seated positions, as increased pressure is placed on the sciatic nerve. This is often exacerbated in individuals who sit on their wallet. Common causes are overexercising and prolonged sitting and it appears to be more common in women. Buttock and sciatic pain resulting from piriformis syndrome respond well to physical therapy when properly diagnosed and treated. Physical therapy treatment begins with a thorough evaluation of the hip joint and spine followed by specific manual therapy techniques performed by an experienced therapist. The goal of physical therapy treatment is to allow the piriformis muscle to relax and lengthen, relieving the pressure on the sciatic nerve. Modalities including moist heat and ultrasound often assist in allowing the piriformis muscle to relax. Once pain levels are reduced, specific patient exercises and stretches can be taught, allowing patients to control and eliminate their sciatica. PAUL EBERLE, MS, PT

All The Services You Need, From The People You Trust By Michael Vandenberg Dr. Christopher Lillo of Oak Ridge Dental Group in Toms River knows what it feels like to be just another number in a generic facility. “I went to my own eye doctor, and the last three times I had different doctors and different nurses in there.” It’s time to get back to the days when you got treated well when you got treatment. With a friendly staff that greets you by name when you walk in and gives you the personalized care you deserve in a relaxed setting, complete with a fish tank and fireplace in the waiting room. Welcome to Oak Ridge Dental, where that kind of service is a permanent fixture. Oak Ridge Dental Group opened back in 1977 in its current home. There have never been other locations, only one tight-knit staff with very little turnover. “Everyone except the office manager has been here a minimum of ten years,”

Dr. Lillo pointed out. One of their receptionists, Peggy, has been welcoming patients to their office for 40 years! Dr. Lillo grew up in North Jersey and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed his residency at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch. He joined Oak Ridge Dental Group in 1995 when another dentist was retiring, and started running the show a few years later. Although he’s in charge, it’s very much a casual environment: there are no white coats. Instead, the staff goes out for special occasions and gets days off for their birthdays. By being family-oriented, they’re able to provide a personal touch for their patients. They’re fair in their pricing, take most PPO insurances, offer interest-free payment plans, and will even acknowledge your birthday when you come in for your appointment! They may be a small practice but Oak Ridge Dental

offers a well-rounded selection of dental services. Of course they offer cleanings, check-ups, and fillings, but they go beyond that as well. “What’s good about this office is that, between my hygienist and myself, we do all specialty work here. For example, we do extractions, we’ll do root canals, and my hygienist does deep scaling,” Dr. Lillo explained. When you come to Oak Ridge Dental, odds are you’ll get full treatment with the same people from start to finish. Oak Ridge Dental is really your one-stop shop for dental needs. Veneers? Check. Bridges and crowns? Absolutely. Dentures? Why not? Bonding? Sure. Oral cancer screenings? Of course. You might be surprised about some of the other services they provide. For instance, they offer Philips Zoom in-office whitening, which makes your teeth five to eight shades whiter in just an hour. For sleep apnea, they offer an oral appliance custom-f itted to your mouth. The device functions as a more comfortable alternative to the CPAP. It’s all part of an effort to really go the extra mile for their patients. You won’t feel r ushed here either: they’re ver y punct ual and always schedule enough time for each visit. And of course, Dr. Lillo is more than qualified thanks to his huge focus on continuing education courses. “We’re only required to do 40 hours every two years, but

Dr. Christopher Lillo I do at least 60 hours every year.” Thus he’s always up to date on the latest materials and advancements in the field of dentistry. The advanced skill set of Dr. Lillo, coupled with the environment of Oak Ridge Dental Group, is very much appreciated by their current patients. “No one loves going to see the dentist, let’s be honest,” he pointed out. However, there is more than one example of a patient who, after being scared of the dental experience for so

long, have given testimonials about the professional treatment they received during their visit from beginning to end. Everything is explained thoroughly and upfront, and they never push work on you. Perhaps most importantly, patients get to feel like they’re involved in the treatment plan. At Oak Ridge Dental, you’re in charge of your care and included in the decision-making process, as you should be. So call 732-341-1120 to

schedule an appointment with Dr. Lillo today! Oak Ridge Dental Group is located at 191 Highway 37 in Toms River. They have very flexible hours to fit your schedule, opening as early as 7am and closing as late as 8pm, depending on the day. Feel free to browse oakridgedentalnj. com for testimonials and more information on the many services they provide. Get the smile you deserve, from a smiling staff.

Omarr’s Astrological Forecast For the week of june 9 - JUne 15 By Jeraldine Saunders

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Luck has little to do with it. Hold off until the end of the week to test your luck on games of chance. Those in charge may expect you to be efficient and proficient so it is a good idea to get your priorities straight. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It is always darkest before the dawn. A family problem will have a simple solution. Your brilliant ideas won’t get much airplay now, but you could organize them and present them later in the week. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Remain optimistic and repeat positive mantras to ward off suspicions and mistrust. Tell a few jokes and find ways to put people at ease. Avoid misunderstandings by being open minded and forgiving as this week unfolds. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Money comes in and money goes out. It is in your best interest to remain philosophical about holding on to it. You might be spurred to achieve greater financial stability by partners in the upcoming week. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be wise when you make your buys. Wait until late in the week to make key purchases or financial decisions. The desire for more luxurious furnishings or the need to provide for family members may egg you on. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t join the band of people who refuse to understand. Gossip can drive a wedge between you and a friend. In the week to come you would be wise to sidestep controversies and to choose your companions wisely.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): First things first. This might be a good week to make improvements or fixes in the household, but you must focus on fulfilling your obligations toward others before you will have the time to handle your own. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The possibilities are endless. Because you are cooperative and optimistic you are apt to hook up with helpful people this week. Determined effort will create positive results if you are cautious about cash outlays. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may have a blind spot. You might be unaware that someone has done you a favor behind the scenes. Remain thrifty in the upcoming week even if it doesn’t make sense to do so in some situations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Sometimes rules seem illogical. Your complaints and suggestions will probably fall on deaf ears, so you should keep your own counsel in the upcoming week. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There is no reason to conceal your net worth, talents or abilities. Your partner or significant other might have a valuable idea and need your input or resources to make it a reality. The second half of the week is best. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It may be sunny by the pool but there may still be shadows behind the hedge. Exert your charm to soothe ruffled feathers. Even healthy relationships can fall prey to temporary misgivings or doubts in the week ahead.

wolfgang puck’s kitchen Berry Sweet: Create The Perfect Showcase For Fresh Berries With This Rice Tart By Wolfgang Puck We’re all used to the fact that modern shipping now makes it possible for us to enjoy most varieties of fresh berries year round. Whether it is blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or something more exotic, we can walk into any supermarket and usually find those plump, juicy, sweet jewels whenever we crave them. But berry lovers also know another simple truth: Nothing beats the texture, taste or beauty of berries that are absolutely fresh, locally grown, and in season. No better possible proof of that fact is when they flood the farmers’ market stands from mid-spring through late summer. One of my favorite ways to eat berries is just as they come from nature, popping them into my mouth like candy. It’s not unusual for half a carton or more to disappear during my short drive home from the farmers’ market! Why try to improve upon perfection? So when I’m thinking of recipes for them, I don’t want to do anything that transforms them too much. Instead, I like to come up with beautiful, delicious ways to showcase them in all their glory. That’s the goal of my recipe for a rice tart with fresh berries. Just imagine: a crisp, freshly bake pastry shell, filled with a cool, custardy rice pudding and topped with beautiful ripe whole blackberries, blueberries or raspberries, or sliced strawberries. Even better, each slice reveals a delightful surprise: another layer of fresh berries, concealed beneath the filling! Not only does the presentation look amazing but it also provides the perfect combination of flavors and textures, with the relatively mild, creamy texture and pale color of the rice mixture perfectly highlighting the fruit the same way an artist’s canvas showcases a painting. For the best possible results, I don’t use just any rice for the filling. Instead, I start with Arborio rice, the same variety of plump, short grains traditionally used in Italian risotto. With a generous amount of surface starch that dissolves into the cooking liquid, and the chewy-yet-tender al dente consistency, the rice adds enjoyable body and texture to the pudding. I also add fresh vanilla bean, grated orange zest and a splash of Grand Marnier liqueur to spark the flavor and subtly complement the berries. You’ll find the recipe surprisingly easy to make. In fact, if you’re pressed for time, you don’t even have to prepare the pastry yourself. You could instead use frozen pastry for a single-crust pie shell from the supermarket, thawed following the manufacturer’s instructions. Once your homemade or store-bought crust is done, in little more than an hour and a half you and your family and friends will be enjoying a beautiful, delicious way to celebrate the seasonal harvest. RICE TART WITH FRESH BERRIES Serves 6 to 8


Sale Prices Valid 6/9/2018 to 6/15/2018

For the sugar dough: 2/3 pound (335 g) unsalted butter, slightly softened 2 1/4 cups (560 mL) pastry flour 2 1/4 cups (560 mL) all-purpose flour Pinch kosher salt 1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar 2 large egg yolks 4 teaspoons heavy cream

1 to 2 tablespoons ice water, if needed For the tart filling: 1/2 cup (125 mL) Arborio rice 2 cups (500 mL) whole milk Zest of 2 oranges 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise with a sharp knife, seeds carefully scraped out and reserved 1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 4 large egg yolks 1/2 cup Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur 2 cups (500 mL) heavy cream, lightly whipped About 2 cups (500 mL) fresh raspberries, blue berries, blackberries, or sliced strawberries, plus extra for garnish At least several hours ahead, prepare the sugar dough: Cut the butter into large pieces, and place in a food processor fitted with the stainless-steel blade. Add the flours, salt and sugar. Pulse the machine on and off until the butter is evenly distributed. Add the egg yolks and cream. Mix continuously just until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl, adding a little ice water if needed; do not overmix. Remove the dough and, on a lightly floured surface, flatten into a round. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours or overnight. For the tart, preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C). Roll the dough to a thickness of about 3/8 inch (9 mm). Use it to line an 8-inch (25-cm) pie tin or tart tin. Place the tin on a baking sheet, line it with parchment paper, and fill with pie weights. Bake until golden brown. Remove from the oven, leaving the oven on, and leave the tart shell at room temperature to cool. Remove the pie weights. For the tart filling: Put the rice in a saucepan, and add cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Drain in a wiremeshed sieve. Put the milk, orange zest, vanilla bean seeds and pod, and sugar in an ovenproof saucepan. Add the rice and bring to a boil. Cover, place in the 350 F (175 C) oven, and cook until the rice is tender-chewy and the liquid has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, put the softened butter in a mixing bowl and stir vigorously with a sturdy wooden spoon until smooth and creamy. One at a time, add the egg yolks, beating each into the butter with the wooden spoon until thoroughly incorporated before adding the next. The mixture should look smooth and satiny. When the rice is done, transfer the saucepan to the stovetop over very low heat, remove and discard the vanilla pod, and whisk in the butter-egg mixture, stirring until thickened. Stir in the Grand Marnier, remove from the heat and leave at room temperature to cool. Transfer the rice mixture to a mixing bowl. With a sturdy rubber spatula, fold in the lightly whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate until nearly set. Line the bottom of the tart shell with about half of the berries in an even layer. Pour in the rice mixture, smooth it out and refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Decorate the top with most of the remaining berries. To serve, use a sharp knife to cut into wedges, transfer to serving plates, and garnish the plates with a few more berries.
