Officials: Fireworks Over Toms River Can’t Be Rescheduled

By Chris Lundy BEACHWOOD – For the first time in a long time, Beachwood was quiet on July 4. Usually, the town fills up, parking is worth more than gold, and everyone claims a spot so they can look up to the sky and watch the annual fireworks display. But that didn’t happen this year. The fireworks vendor was not able to ship the fireworks. Officials have said that the fireworks show over the Toms River on July 4 can’t be rescheduled. Mayor Ron Roma put out a press release stating that the company that was to provide the show, Fireworks Extravaganza, did not have staff with licenses to transport explosives on that day. Days later, he met with the owner of Fireworks Extravaganza, who

Continued From Page 1 agreed to return the initial deposit of $8500, which will be put back into the Beachwood Fireworks Fund. The committee will be meeting with him and legal counsel soon. “It was such a sad thing. No one was expecting this,” said Councilwoman Beverly Clayton, who chairs the fireworks committee. When the fireworks didn’t arrive, people started to get concerned. They couldn’t get official word that they were not coming until later, she said. This would have been the 78th year that the fireworks would be held, she said. In future years, this will be a black hole in the record. “People don’t understand what goes into this event,” she said. Dozens of employees and volunteers worked together in a coordinated effort for months around a fireworks show on July 4, only to have it be canceled at the last minute. Multiple agencies are involved, including state police, the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department, local police and government officials, fire departments, first aid squads, Office of Emergency Management, junior

explorers, and public works, she said. Even the number of workers and volunteers from Beachwood that were all hands on deck was high, but other towns along the Toms River also have to prepare for it. Even with the company reimbursing the cost of the fireworks show, there is other money that was put out: paying employees on a holiday, and for their work on the days leading up to it. “They truly did us a disservice,” she said. Kevin Williams, a member of the fireworks committee, posted about it on WOBM. “Fireworks in Beachwood are a source of pride to the borough and done with great effort and contributions from the police and public works departments as well as volunteers from fire and first aid squads. There is also tremendous coordination with surrounding towns, the State Police and the Coast Guard, something that is done over months. For that reason you simply can’t re-schedule the show,” he said. Fireworks Extravaganza, of New Rochelle, was scheduled to put on shows at several other venues. They were not able to get to Beachwood and Milltown. The president of Fireworks Extravaganza,

John Sagaria, posted an apology to the people of Beachwood and Milltown on the company’s Facebook page on July 5. “A perfect storm of events took place, and we were unable to get the product legally to your site. It was all about the delivery. The product was there, the lead shooters ready, and everything was a go. But we had a problem with the driver that was delivering the shows. Many regulations are in place for transportation of explosives and this is what failed. Any other day, other than the actual 4th of July, we could have made changes and gotten around it, but yesterday we could not. It was a failure, but also a failure of not having a strong enough “Plan B” in place for yesterday. And we simply ran out of time. This failure is my fault, and the development of a powerful “Plan B” is my responsibility. And for this I am sorry. This is the first time ever in hundreds and hundreds of shows per year over a span of 10 years that this has taken place. “I have won competitions all over the world, and up until yesterday that is what people know me for in this business. But today is a new day and we failed you. I want to do whatever I can do to make up for it, correct

the Beachwood Mall, where the Wunder Wiener had been. Two local PBAs, Berkeley Local 237 and Beachwood-Pine Beach Local 253, organized it. They had a trailer and tables set up, selling hot dogs, snacks, drinks, 50/50 tickets and t-shirts. They held the event on three days, and all three days were busy. On Saturday, a beautiful, sunny day, there were so many people there that they had to handle traffic. The fundraiser will help with medical bills. He had been inside the food truck on the morning of June 11, when an SUV heading south on Route 9 left the roadway and destroyed the truck. The crash is still under investigation. His niece, Charissa Fromm, said that he still has a road ahead of him. “But he is very motivated because of the love and support of everyone around him,” she said. “So he is working hard to make progress little by little. He and the family are so thankful for everyone’s continued support.” That gratitude could be heard in his voice. “Gee whiz, I’m at a loss for words, here,” he said. He thanked his family for being by his bedside. He also thanked the outpouring of support from the community. When he was told of how busy it was, he couldn’t believe it. “Normally, I wouldn’t have a line on the best day of the year for crying out loud,” he said. “I just don’t know how to put it into words,” he said. “It certainly makes me want to get back there. I will do what it takes” to recover and rebuild. He said he’s not sure whether he’d name the new truck Wunder Wiener 2 or Wunder Wiener Jr. but he definitely wants to come back. This elicited applause from the crowd gathered at the fundraiser. Justin Geib was one of many people on line for hot dogs, talking about how he grew up going to der Wunder Wiener. He said probably everyone around here has a story like his. One time, he told his parents he was going to ride his bike there but his parents wouldn’t let him, because it was on Route 9. He snuck out just to go for a hot dog, because it was the best around. Philip Schena, president of the PBA for Beachwood-Pine Beach Local 253 said that they probably sold about 7,000 hot dogs, and 400 shirts that sold for $10 each. Even when there was a torrential downpour, people were coming out in droves. Chris Shick, the state delegate for the Berkeley PBA, said they made about $18,000 during the fundraiser. Meanwhile, a GoFundMe had been set up by Fromm and LaCrosse’s son, Jerry. It can be found at As of press time, it had raised approximately $11,500.

OPINIONS & COMMENTARY Letters To The Editor Remembering Different Good Old Days Gosh, the good old days sound nice. Leaving doors unlocked 24/7, having polite people hold the door, or apologizing when they bumped you. Of course, being only 72, I don’t remember leaving doors unlocked. Here’s what I do remember: I remember when a man who worked a forty-hour week had enough money that his wife could stay at home and raise the children. His union made sure that he got overtime pay for working more than a forty-hour week, health care (for himself and his family), healthy and safe working conditions, a two-week vacation every year, paid holidays, and a pension, even in a minimum wage job. I remember when a high school diploma was a guarantee of a job. I remember when those who went to college could work all summer to pay their tuition and have a part time job to pay living expenses. I remember when teenagers got jobs to buy luxuries like cars, instead of working to supplement the family income. I remember when men stayed with their families instead abandoning families. I remember when divorce was a rarity, instead of being 50 percent of all marriages. I remember when a Pres-

ident of the United States was elected by the majority of the people, instead of the electoral college. I remember when his wife was a lady, and the president’s children were not part of the administration. I remember when people would not vote for a man who has a record of groping women, or considered it his right, as sponsor, to walk into dressing rooms of unclad beauty contestants without knocking. I remember when no one would vote for a man who had dodged the draft, five times, in a time of war. I remember when a president did not spend 20 percent of his time playing golf and did not make a profit off those golfing trips by charging hotel fees, in his own hotels, for staffers and security people. I remember when infants were not ripped from their mothers’ arms and given up for adoption when their mothers were convicted for the “crime” of asking to be given refuge from criminal gangs in their country of origin. I remember when we gave political asylum to people, especially women and children, fleeing corr upt governments, dr ug lords, and rebels. I remember beer sales at the ball park stopped until the anthem fi nished. I remember when people, especially the president, knew the words. I remember when people had enough respect for the flag that they

did not wear it as bikinis, tee shirts, caps, or pants. I remember when it was not flown on the wrong side of the pickup truck, or ragged, or dragging the ground, or used as a picnic blanket, beach towel, or advertising campaign. I remember when civics teachers were allowed to teach more of the Constitution than just the 2nd amendment, and only half of that. I remember when kids were allowed to know what their rights were. I remember when white supremacists were not allowed to spew their lies and hate. I remember when they held their rallies in the dark, with their faces covered, because decent people were ashamed of them. I remember when political correctness was just good manners, and name calling was bad manners. I remember when Congress members and Senators represented the people, not just rich donors, foreign interests, and the NRA. I remember when presidents gave up their own business interests to avoid conflict of interests. I remember when a Speaker of the House did not stall bills in committee but allowed them to come to the floor for a vote. I remember when congress did not start interminable wars. I remember when a Supreme Court nominee was allowed a hearing, even when he was not a right-wing republican. I remember when no politician ever proposed cuts to Social Security and VA. I remember when a president (Richard Nixon) tried to protect clean air and water. I remember when the Congress spent nearly $80 million on an investigation of whether the president had sex with a legal, consenting adult, unlike the groperin-chief, and members of his family and staff, who are being investigated for treason, five of whom have already pled guilty, while sixteen others have been indicted. I can remember when the smartest kid in Sky-

Letters To The Editor line School, Solana Beach of pre-existing conditions. California, was an illegal immigrant, who went on to become a math teacher. Today, she would have been deported, and all that talent would have been wasted. That same school and time went on to produce two nurses, one Marine KIA in Vietnam, three Vietnam veterans, one priest, a cop, and a plumbing contractor - all of whom came here illegally, but all of whom were decent, productive citizens. Not one of them became involved with drugs or gangs. In fact, there are more gang members who were born here, of American parents, than there are members who are immigrants, and even the that biggest of bogeymen, MS-13, was actually born in the USA (San Francisco). I remember when presidents did what was best for the country, not just what was best for the corporations that bought them. I remember when they sent young men off to war knowing what those young men were facing, because they had been there, not fivetime draft dodgers who hid behind daddy’s money. I remember presidents who had dignity, not buffoonery. I remember presidents who had strength instead of bluster, spoke truth instead of stupid lies, and made us proud before our allies and strong before our enemies. They relied on integrity, not useless walls. I remember when I was proud to be an American and proud to wear the uniform of the U.S. Army, a uniform that the present occupant of the White House was too chicken to wear. Myrna F. Arnold Whiting

First, They Came For The Health Care Before ACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or nicknamed Obamacare) 52 million people were uninsurable because

Calling On Conservative Voters In November

62 percent of bankruptcies in the U.S. were medically related. The Trump Administration continues to unravel the ACA piece by piece. Next to go is protection for pre-existing conditions. Unable to repeal ACA, Trump utilized another tactic. Tucked inside his tax bill, the individual mandate was repealed. People had protested the mandate feeling they were paying for something they didn’t need. We should base our laws on facts, not feelings. The fact that the individual mandate was eradicated results in deconstructing financial support needed to keep ACA viable. In June, Trump began his attack on the pre-existing clause in the ACA. The Department of Justice followed by declaring it is now unconstitutional because the individual mandate has been removed. Have we so soon forgotten how expensive and how many fatalities ensued for Americans who had no health insurance? The ACA is popular because it provides protection for those who have pre-existing conditions. It provides essential health benefits which require insurers to cover; annual physicals, doctor services, in-patient and out-patient hospital care, prescription drugs, pregnancy, child birth, mental health and dental coverage for children. In place of ACA, Trump has proposed cheap, junk plans allowing companies to offer the insured virtually no coverage. Trump’s admitted line is that if you say a lie often enough people will soon believe it as truth. Stand up America! Protest! Trump and his cronies are working to remove another ACA benefit. They’ll stop at nothing.

League of Women Voters Lotte Scharfman is credited with coining the phrase, “Democracy is not a spectator sport.” Scharfman, a refugee of Nazi Germany, was the League’s president until her death in 1970. She stated that in order for Democracy to “work” you have to participate, you cannot simply be an observer. As the saying goes Americans will cross an ocean to fight a war, but not cross the street to vote, a right that so many have shed their blood and tears. A low voter turnout is again predicted for this year’s November’s midterm elections. Being a no show at the polls is the same as surrendering your vote to a neighbor who may not share your values. If you are concerned with the direction of our government now is the time to vote for candidates that defend the police, law and order and family values and reject those that advocate to legalize recreational marijuana, open borders, sanctuary cities, drivers licenses for illegal aliens, taxpayer-funded tuition for undocumented immigrants, higher gas and sales tax, abortion on demand, disrespecting our flag and removing religion from our public discourse. Voter turnout decides elections. Go to the polls in November and vote for the lawmakers that will exercise fiscal discipline by lowering our highest in the nation property taxes and fully restore the Homestead credit, a benefit that the disabled and seniors on fixed income need to maintain and keep them in their homes.

Help For Vets, And Things To Do In Berkeley From The Desk Of

The Mayor - By Berkeley Mayor

Carmen F. Amato, Jr. I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Independence Day. It’s important as we gather with family and friends to BBQ this summer, we take a moment to keep in mind our nation’s veterans and those currently serving in the Armed Forces. We must remain vigilant in remembering those brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. May God continue to bless them and their families.

New Jersey Veterans’ Benefits Guide Available Berkeley Township is home to one of the largest veteran populations in the state of New Jersey. Many veterans may not be aware of certain benefits, entitlements and services they may be entitled to. The New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs have assembled a guide which is full of this valuable information. I have made the New Jersey

Veterans’ Benefits Guide available at Town Hall and have provided a link on our township’s web site. I encourage all veterans to visit or next time you’re in Town Hall, pick up a copy. I am extremely grateful for all of our military service personnel and our veterans who have served our country. I want to make sure every veteran is aware and receiving the benefits and services they are entitled to.

Refreshments are always provided by our local non-profit groups and organizations that use these concerts to raise funds. We hope to see you at the show! Visit the Farmers Market And Historical Society Thanks to the hard work of Councilman Angelo Guadagno, our Berkeley Farmers Market is doing well so far! As a reminder, the market will be held every Tuesday through October. This year,

we have also extended the market one hour. The market will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at our Recreation Center, located on Route 9 in Bayville. Local vendors from around the area, including our own Moore’s Farm Market, will be on hand selling Jersey Fresh produce and other items of interest. Your support is critical in making this a success. Please come on out and support your local vendors. Again this year, the Berkeley Township Historical Society museum will also be open during market hours.

Medicinal Marijuana Program Grows by 10,000 Patients This Year From The Desk Of Governor Phil Murphy TRENTON – Ten thousand patients have joined the Department of Health’s Medicinal Marijuana program since the Murphy Administration began in January - for a total of 25,000 patients and 1,000 caregivers participating. “By changing the restrictive culture of the State’s Medical Marijuana program, we are now providing greater access to treatment for those who truly need to be helped,” said Governor Phil Murphy. “The addition of 10,000 new patients since January demonstrates this administration’s commitment to making the program more responsive to the needs of patients, physicians and dispensaries.” Of the 10,000 patients who have signed up since January, 6,300 have one of the six new medical conditions added at the end of March: anxiety, migraines, Tourette’s syndrome, chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders, and chronic visceral pain. A sixth dispensary opened

in Secaucus June 18 and several satellite Alternative Treatment Center locations are also in the works. “These numbers reflect that we are building a compassionate, consumer-friendly program,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal. The Department is also continuing its public awareness campaign to let residents know that the program has expanded. “Talk to your doctor to see if you qualify,’’ a promoted Facebook ad states. The ad started Friday and will run through the summer. In addition, patients, caregivers and physicians can now access the program across mobile platforms so they can register, upload documents and make payments on tablets, iPhones and other devices. “But our work is far from done,” added Elnahal. “With the influx of new patients, New Jersey’s medicinal marijuana market needs more competition, choice and greater value -

goals that we look forward to working with all our s takeholders to accomplish.” On June 18, the Department proposed Medicinal Marijuana rules changes to implement Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 6 that will expand access to marijuana therapy responsibly, and to thousands more patients who need it. About 700 of the 28,000 licensed physicians are registered to participate in the program. But, Dr. Elnahal is encouraging the medical community to embrace medicinal marijuana as yet another therapeutic tool - not an independent or alternative therapy. As a result, the commissioner is traveling around the state to medical schools and hospitals this summer giving special Grand Rounds lectures to medical students, faculty, physicians and clinicians to explain the Murphy Administration’s expansion of the program, as well as research on use of marijuana to treat certain medical conditions. The first grand rounds lecture was held May 29 at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and the series continued at St. Joseph’s University Medical Center in Pat-

erson and Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center. Then in mid-September, lectures are scheduled at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Jersey City Medical Center, Virtua Health and the New Jersey Medical School in Newark. Although research is limited, studies have shown the marijuana has benefi ted patients with chronic pain, cancer, HIV, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, IBD and Rheumatoid Arthritis, among many other conditions. “More physicians should look to medicinal marijuana as a safe, effective treat-

ment - and one that can help not only improve patients’ wellbeing but also combat the opioid crisis,” Commissioner Elnahal said. That’s why Commissioner Elnahal is exploring adding opioid use disorder - in concert with Medication Assisted Treatment - to the list of conditions that would allow patients to participate in the program. The opioid epidemic is the most critical public health challenge facing our state. Opioids are highly toxic, addictive and caused 2,200 overdose deaths in our state in 2016. Studies have demonstrated a strong correlation


between the availability of medical marijuana and the reduction of opioid prescriptions. Medical marijuana can help reduce reliance on opioid prescriptions, saving many from a lifetime of addiction and possible overdose death. Two studies in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed a 6 percent decrease in opioid prescriptions in states with strong medicinal marijuana laws. Another study showed that access to medical marijuana reduced opioid-related deaths by 24 percent compared to states without medicinal marijuana laws.

LASIK, PRK, Vision Correction By Kimberly Bosco BERKELEY – Longtime member of the Bayville First Aid Squad Howard Smullen was awarded a medal and plaque on July 2 following his recent retirement. Smullen retired at the end of June after 20 years with the squad. Smullen began his career 29 years ago as an EMT. Starting out as a shy and timid

technician, he eventually grew into a well-loved and appreciated member of the Bayville squad. Smullen has helped train several members, and his guidance landed him the role of star EMT in the squad. Always a positive and encouraging presence, Smullen will be sorely missed by his fellow squad members. He promised to keep in touch.

the Coastal Research Center at Stockton University, and David Rosenblatt, assistant commissioner of construction and engineering for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, also spoke during a moderated talk by Dr. Michael Klein, the interim executive director of Stockton’s Hughes Center. “The challenge now is to meet expectations for the future,” Rosenblatt said. “We will also be focused more on the back bay and how to address concerns there.” The goal is to plan regionally and get away from “spot to spot” projects. The New Jersey Beaches by the Numbers, provided by USACE, Stockton Coastal Research Center, and N.J. Division of Tourism and Travel: • 162,589,905 cubic yards of sand that have been placed on New Jersey beaches. (Based on available data) • $1,239,668,278: the estimated cost of beach replenishment in New Jersey to date. All but about $53 million has been spent since Hurricane Gloria in 1985. • 106: the number of beach locations that are surveyed twice a year as part of the New Jersey Beach Profile Network. • 97: the number of miles of developed coastline in New Jersey. • 30: miles of natural shoreline remaining in New Jersey. • 8.75 percent of federal beach restoration project costs paid by local municipal governments. • 65 percent of federal beach restoration project costs paid by the federal government. • 100 percent of Superstorm Sandy-specific beach restoration paid by the federal government following passage of the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act on Jan. 29, 2013. • $20.6 billion: the amount generated by tourism in the four shore counties (Atlantic, Cape May, Ocean and Monmouth) in 2017, 48 percent of the total $43 billion in the state.


aware out there and taking action to help save this swimmer,” his mother, Tricia DeVoe, said. “There were other surfers out there at the time, but John was the one who saw what was happening and went to help Thomas rescue the man. Thomas did not have any flotation device and the rip current was very strong so he really needed assistance. I am really impressed with both of them. They did an amazing job in very difficult conditions, and they are just kids!” After John and Thomas got the swimmer back to safety, they went back out surfing, she said. Then, by the time they were done, the swimmer was feeling better and invited them to play a little soccer. This lifesaving tradition runs in the family. Last summer, John’s older brother, Nikolas DeVoe, rescued swimmers as well. Nikolas was 14 at the time, same as John was this year. And he was also with Tom Picurro when they saw three people stuck in a rip current. Nikolas grabbed the closest person, while Tom rode his board out and brought one of them in. Nikolas then went back out for the third. And then, that fall, he saw a couple out in the surf about 90 feet out that looked like they couldn’t make it to shore. The man made it to the beach, but Nikolas swam out and rescued the woman.

Continued From Page 1 largest beach-fill projects of dune and berm systems. While that work won’t completely eliminate potential hurricane damage, it will reduce it greatly, as far as direct ocean damage. Mitigating back bay flooding is a challenge that still needs addressing. If Superstorm Sandy hit today, exactly how it hit in 2012, the outcome where the work is complete would be different. Mantoloking had the ocean attacking its homes directly, causing those homes to collapse. The backbay flooding, which occurred in surrounding areas, flooded homes but didn’t knock them down. “In the areas that it’s complete, like Mantoloking where that breach occurred, that was one of the first jobs we did…that [breach] won’t occur in those areas,” USACE Project Manager, Philadelphia, Keith Watson said. “Again, these are storm damage reduction projects. So, I can confidently say the damages in Mantoloking would be greatly reduced from what occurred during Sandy if the same storm hit there again…Our projects take care of more energetic damages from the ocean side. There’s other studies going on now on a regional basis about what can be done to reduce bay flooding.” Ortley Beach, which had no dunes and “was probably one of the most vulnerable beaches,” also devastated by Sandy, will be in a similarly more-protected state as is Mantoloking now. The project should be completed there by the end of the year, Watson said. (The work would likely have been completed before the summer shore season if not for the lawsuits, Watson had to add.) Watson was one of three guests to speak at Stockton University’s “Jersey Shore Beach Report” down in Atlantic City recently. Dr. Stewart Farrell, executive director of

Thomas, 16, is a lifeguard, but wasn’t on duty. He attends Rutherford High School. John, 14, isn’t a lifeguard, but that didn’t stop him from paddling over on his board. They helped the man steady himself so he could rest on the board. “He was starting to go under, and he was panicking, and spitting up water,” he said. There was a language barrier, so it was hard to communicate to him what they needed him to do, he said. Once they got him to a sand bar, it was shallow enough for him to walk, he said. As soon as he did, he fell right over. They carried him the rest of the way. On the shore, the man’s relatives thanked the two teens. One of them spoke enough English to tell them how none of them were strong enough swimmers, and were afraid that they would drown if they went out to try to save him. They were looking for a lifeguard. “I am extremely proud of John for being

As confounding as it may seem, it is estimated that 20% of the population sleeps with their eyes open. The medical term for this inability to close the eyelids completely during sleep, “nocturnal lagophthalmos,” occurs as a result of problems with facial nerves or muscles that make it difficult to keep the eyes fully closed. Problems with skin surrounding the eyelids may also play a role. As a result of this eyelid difficulty, those affected wake up with the feeling of dryness and graininess in their eyes. Other symptoms include eye redness, blurred vision, light sensitivity, scratchiness, and poor sleep quality. One surgical treatment for nocturnal lagophthalmos involves the insertion of an implant that serves as an eyelid weight. Some doctors believe that the incidence of lagophthalmos is increasing, possibly due in part to the growing popularity of surgeries such as blepharoplasty. If performed incorrectly, this procedure can cause lagophthalmos or worsen an existing case. To schedule an eye exam, please call SUSSKIND & ALMALLAH EYE ASSOCIATES, P.A. at 732349-5622. Our goal is to meet and exceed your expectations by providing friendly service, professional care, and quality products at affordable prices.

I Woke Up And I Cannot Hear

Sudden hearing loss occurs so quickly literally overnight or in an instant - that the change in hearing is dramatic and can be very upsetting. A sudden hearing loss can involve any part of the hearing system and something as straight forward as earwax can cause a sudden hearing loss. However, the term usually refers to a sudden “nerve” or sensorineural hearing loss. The loss is almost always in one ear and may be accompanied by dizziness, tinnitus (ear noises), and/or aural fullness/pressure. Suspected causes of sudden sensorineural hearing loss include viral infection, ototoxic medications, acoustic trauma and meningitis. In most cases, the specific cause is never found (idiopathic). In cases with no known cause, viral infections or vascular blockage is suspected. There may be a history of a recent flu or cold, but in most cases, there are no other complaints. Partial or complete recovery occurs in

about 60-65 percent of the cases. Recovery can take anywhere from a few days to a few months. Those who seek immediate medical attention (within a week) have a higher recovery rate than those who wait. The recovery rate is also higher for those with milder hearing losses. Patients who present with a severe and/or profound hearing loss with accompanying symptoms such as dizziness and/or tinnitus are less likely to recover their hearing. Someone who experiences sudden hearing loss should seek medical attention immediately so that medical treatment can be provided. The medical evaluation usually involves a thorough history, otologic and audiologic examination. Remember, a sudden loss of hearing is not normal. Therefore, do not hesitate to contact your primary care physician or ear, nose and throat physician for immediate medical treatment.

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!

H ERE ’ S T O Y OUR H EALTH Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.

Amazing Facts About Nightmares and Dreaming By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph. Sleeping is one of the great pleasures in life, unless you have bad dreams or nightmares. Then it’s pure misery. Most of us do dream while sleeping, we just don’t remember it. Luckily, a man named Larry Page remembered his dream. He was a computer scientists and he woke up from a dream when he was 23 wondering if there was a way to ‘download the web’ and rank webpages by inbound links. He went on to become a co-founder of Google! Page’s net worth according to Forbes is 52 billion dollars. Talk about making money when you sleep! So why can’t you remember your dreams? Our brains are trained to forget non-essential facts and the truth is, most of our dreams aren’t that unique. But I bet you do wake up and recall the bizarre scary dreams, don’t you? This is because your brain finds it more “essential” to remember these strange or scary images. They stand out. Here are some other little known facts about dreaming that you may be interested in. By the way, if you’d like a longer version of this article, it’s at my website. If you lost sight later in life, you can like still see images in your dreams and dream visually like when you had your eyesight. Those folks who were born with blindness may not see in pictures but can still dream and experience sounds, touch sensations and emotions during their dream state. With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), several brain regions are involved including the amygdala where dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin play a role. PTSD nightmares may occur with or without REM sleep.

If you have asthma, for some reason, you are also more prone to nightmares. The bad dreams can intensify with many treatments, including montelukast. Heartburn medications such as ranitidine and famotidine used to treat heartburn can sometimes induce vivid dreams and nightmares. So can allergy drugs like diphenhydramine. Blood pressure pills interfere with sleep. This category has well-documented evidence to show how they trigger nightmares and this side effect alone often causes people to seek other treatments. If you grew up with black and white TVs, most of your dreams occur in black and white. Anxiety is the most common emotion during dreams. You might experience it as falling, flying or feeling unprepared or humiliated in your dream. Dogs dream. You will often hear them whimper or see their paws twitching. More than likely they are running in their dreams. Sleeping pills can and often due induce vivid dreaming and nightmares. Withdrawal from these medications can also induce higher dreaming and/or nightmares for a period of time. Antidepressants such as fluoxetine and paroxetine increase serotonin and may trigger intense or disturbing dreams that seem to go on all night. Some sleep supplements containing melatonin might trigger unpleasant or bizarre dreams. If that happens, take a break from the melatonin because the dose might be too high. Remember, you make this sleep hormone yourself so supplementing has an additive effect.

Inside The Law Protect Yourself And Your Family By Choosing The Right Automobile Insurance

Robert C. Shea Esq.

By Michael J. Deem of R.C. Shea and Associates A significant percentage of the motor vehicles that travel though our community are either uninsured or underinsured. To protect against the harms and losses caused by uninsured or underinsured motorists, automobile insurance companies are obligated by law to provide uninsured motorist (UM) coverage to those motorists who purchase Standard policies. Although underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage is not mandatory, typically they are sold hand-in-hand with UM endorsements and are found in virtually all Standard automobile insurance policies in New Jersey. As the name suggests, UM /UIM coverage is that element of an insured’s own policy of insurance under which he or his family may be compensated for injuries and losses suffered at the hands of an uninsured or underinsured motorist. This coverage also applies when you are injured as a passenger in someone else’s vehicle. UM/UIM insurance is very inexpensive yet very important. It is designed to protect you and your family. For in-

stance, you are sitting Michael J. Deem at a red light minding your business when all of t he sudden a drunk runs a red light, crashes into your vehicle and causes you to spend the next week in the hospital with multiple permanent, internal injuries. Your only source of compensation for pain, suffering and unpaid medical bills may come from your UM/UIM insurance policy if the drunk was uninsured or underinsured. Automobile insurance is mandatory in New Jersey. And although the failure to carry automobile insurance may be punishable by imprisonment many people deliberately do not carry insurance or do not realize that their insurance policy has expired or been cancelled. Never rely upon a stranger to protect you and your family. Selecting the correct insurance coverage is your responsibility. Call the Attorneys at R.C. Shea & Associates for a free evaluation of your automobile insurance policy.

Omarr’s Astrological Forecast For the week of JUly 14 - JUly 20

By Jeraldine Saunders

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): You may perceive disapproval when someone is only being matter-of-fact in the week ahead. Guard your reputation and follow the rules, but you don’t need to be put on the defensive. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone else might have more muscle but you have the brains and persistence to stay on track. You must keep your wits about you, so you aren’t fooled in the week to come. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): While on the job you are expected to perform at top efficiency, but once you are off the clock your time is your own. Stay focused this week, as what you create, or build, may be permanent. CANCER (June 21-July 22): The seeds of a great idea might be ready to sprout or can be prepared for favorable transplants this week. You will be at optimum efficiency far away from the hustle and the bustle. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The ability to help others is in your hands. You may be highly competitive on the career front in the week to come, but your own needs and desires may take second place. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put your life into apple pie order. In the week ahead, you are at the top of your game and if needed can double your workload. Demonstrating self-discipline doesn’t

mean you are selfish. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Success comes to those who are too busy to notice. Family obligations might briefly prevent you from concentrating on career goals or a crucial project in the upcoming week.

wolfgang puck’s kitchen Bunless Burgers: A Healthy Twist On A Summertime Favorite By Wolfgang Puck TURKEY BURGERS IN GRILLED PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM “BUNS” Serves 4 1 1/2 pounds (750 g) coarsely ground turkey 4 to 8 cloves Roasted Garlic (recipe follows), mashed with a fork 2 tablespoons fi nely chopped Italian parsley 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 8 large similarly sized portobello mushrooms, stems removed 4 thin slices provolone cheese 2 fi rm but ripe medium-sized tomatoes, cut crosswise to yield 4 slices about 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick Good-quality dill pickle chips Preheat an outdoor grill, an indoor grill or a broiler. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, roasted garlic to taste, parsley, 4 teaspoons olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Form the mixture into four equal burger patties, each about a 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick. When the grill or broiler is hot, brush the burger patties and mushroom caps on both sides with olive oil. Season the mushroom caps with salt and pepper. Grill or broil the burgers and mushroom caps until the burgers are nicely browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side, and the mushrooms are golden, turning everything only once. About halfway through cooking the burgers on the second side, top

each one with a slice of provolone. When the mushrooms are done, place half of them rounded side down on a platter or individual serving plates. Nestle a burger patty inside each of the mushroom caps and top them with tomato slices and pickle chips to taste. Top with the remaining mushrooms, rounded sides up. Secure each burger with a wooden sandwich pick and serve immediately. ROASTED GARLIC Makes about 1/2 cup (125 mL) 2 garlic heads Kosher salt Extra-virgin olive oil Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C). With a sharp (preferably serrated) knife, cut off enough of the top of each garlic head to expose the cloves. Place the heads in the center of a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Season with salt. Drizzle well with oil and turn the garlic heads to coat them evenly. Securely close up the foil around the garlic. Place the foil package in the oven and roast the garlic until the heads feel very tender when the package is carefully squeezed, protecting your hand with a folder kitchen towel or oven glove, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven. Set the package aside until it is cool enough to handle but still warm; or, if not using immediately, set aside to cool completely. Squeeze out the roasted garlic pulp by hand; or use a small spoon or table knife to scoop it out. Use immediately, or transfer to a container, cover and refrigerate until needed.
