Feral Cats Program Continues

By Jennifer Peacock MANCHESTER – The program was to terminate at the end of this year. However, the success of the township’s “Trap, Neuter, Release” program prompted council to keep it going indefinitely. The ASPCA supports such programs, what it calls the “only proven humane and effective method to manage community cat colonies.” So how does the program work? Cats are trapped, spayed or neutered (Cats - See Page 16)

Scene 2 Int. Restaurant. Modern day. Robert O’Neill, John Thievon, and Pat and L. Manuel Hirschblond sit around a table with a reporter, discussing that one time, four decades ago, that the town felt part of the action – whether they wanted to be or not.

The film, of course, is “The Amityville Horror,” the first of a series of horror movies. The film will soon have its 40th anniversary. There were also a few scenes shot locally in sequels, but when Amityville came to Toms River, it was something that had never happened before – and likely would never happen again. The real house, where a family was murdered, still stands in Long Island. A book chronicles the story of a haunting that allegedly took place with the Lutz family that moved in afterward. The movie was based on the book. But like that story, recollections of the filming get a little fuzzy. Naturally, people in Long Island were not keen on having a horror movie filmed where actual horror took place. So, the production company had to find a suitable location, The General’s

able to guess, and therefore fake, in order to get access. “The biggest problem was controlling the area and getting everyone to be quiet when they were shooting. Everybody wanted to get as close as possible,” he said. Thievon agreed. “They all wanted to get their face in (the movie).” Some did. Locals In The Movie While the average residents were kept off the set, a few locals got caught up in the act. “It was amazing when you see it all together,” Pat Hirschblond said. A few locals would become extras when they needed people to, say, carry bodies out of a house. Watching the movie, the locals would laugh when they saw a familiar face, she said. It could be a serious scene, but oh, hey, there’s my neighbor! There was a crane shot filmed from a ladder on the fire truck. “It was shot one time and it was perfect,” O’Neill said. The firefighters were told that the camera crews from Hollywood could come here and take a lesson from them. They also needed the fire hose to create the illusion of rain. They needed to shut down the power in the area, but the production company didn’t want to wait. “Tom, you’re costing me money,” the director, Stu Rosenberg, said to O’Neill. As a result, wires got wet and started a small fire. Someone from the fire department would take the proofs from the day and run them up to New York so they could get developed.

There are so many moving parts, unions, people in charge of this and that, that it was dizzying to an outsider, but the manager held it all together. In Hollywood, they would just build a location on a lot. But when filming in a town, they have to play by the rules. So, when they needed to build a boat house, they had to go through the Board of Adjustment, he said. This boat house was more sturdy than anything else on the river, with 15-inch pilings. It was made so that the walls could pull out to make room for the camera and staff. The actual production around the house was extremely efficient, if chaotic to the naked eye. It only took about two weeks of actual filming, because they had spent time doing prep work, O’Neill said. An older woman who lived next door was worried about the disruption, but they took care to make sure she was happy. Hirschblond remembered how there was a food tent in a park on Water Street and was open 24 hours a day. You could get anything and everything there. He compared it to a military field kitchen in operation except that the food was amazing. John Thievon was a patrolman in the police department at the time. Off-duty officers provided security on the set, and they were paid for their services. It was basically crowd control, he said. They wanted the cast to feel comfortable that they weren’t going to be annoyed by the public. Anyone who was supposed to be on the set were given pins that said “Brothers of the Itchy Whiskers,” O’Neill said. They needed a phrase that a local wouldn’t be

actress have to pretend something dark is happening. Outside the view of the camera are scores of crew members waiting in place, ready to jump into their assigned duties. Even further beyond that are the inhabitants of the town – teachers, shopkeepers, all types of people, try to go through their daily lives as a bustling movie shoot has descended upon their town.

Hirschblond said. Before he was the township clerk, Hirschblond was the division manager with Walter Reade theaters. He recalled that a connection through the theater world reached out to him, saying that the film was looking for locations in New Jersey. They had a picture of a New England home that they wanted to film in. Hirschblond said immediately he knew a house that was a virtual twin. No one could believe how close the connection was. That house still stands on Brooks Road, in downtown Toms River. It is much prettier today, but those eye-like windows on the side are iconic. Being the clerk, he had to get the OK from the town’s governing body. Nobody really knew what filming a movie was going to be like. Overall, it was a positive experience, even if it was inconvenient for the residents for the short duration of the filming. The Holiday Inn on Route 37 (now a Days Hotel) was new at the time. It became the production’s base of operations. The cast and crew stayed there. Phone service had to be brought into rooms for their offices. Russ Saunders, the production manager, had two or three rooms to himself. So did the “money people.” “After they decided where they wanted to go, the biggest thing was taking care of the residents,” said O’Neill, who was the town’s code enforcer at the time. Roads were closed off. If a resident had a problem, they would go to the production company, not the town. “Russ Saunders, the production manager, said ‘It’s a big zoo,’ and it’s true,” he said.

Amityville:

“When he wasn’t shooting, he would go upstairs and learn how to fly,” he said. Kidder showed signs of some of the problems that would eventually become more well known. “The only time Margot Kidder was around was when she wanted a cigarette,” he joked. “It got to the point I just gave her a pack.” Kidder’s daughter had a birthday at the time of the filming, Pat Hirschblond said. She didn’t want her daughter to celebrate alone, so she invited a bunch of local kids who were the same age to her party. Rod Steiger apparently used to work in Seaside when he was a kid, O’Neill said. He disappeared and no one could find him. Turns out he went over to Seaside and was looking up old friends. O’Neill said Steiger was extremely friendly and would get along with everyone. Brolin was “too good to be around” anyone else, and mostly kept to himself, O’Neill said. Pat Hirschblond mentioned that “when he came for coffee, he was very pleasant.” At one point, he went to the Ocean County Mall. Without any make-up or his hair done, he was unrecognizable. No security was needed. He just went about his business. Could Amityville Be Filmed Today? The Amityville experience briefly transformed Toms River, and when filming was done, Toms River transformed back to the family-centric suburb it was before. Decades ago, everybody knew each other in town. If the crew needed something, a local would be able to help. Or, they’d ‘know a guy.’ Local people owned the shops, and they all lived where they worked. Now, that

kind of cohesion is gone, O’Neill said. “The people accepted it much easier than, I think, if it happened now,” O’Neill said. “The governing body had a lot of questions,” Hirschblond said. “We never had that problem before and probably never will again.” The closest thing that had happened after that was when the “Jersey Shore” show filmed in Ocean County, which brought with it more infamy than the story of haunted houses and mass murders. Toms River, The Big Star The house was featured so prominently, it was like the main character of the movie. But there were other locations given bit parts. A document from the Ocean County Library thanked the filmmakers for their donation of 37 art prints donated by Ross Saunders, and noted that some of the filming took place in the Bishop building, which is operated by the library. In that scene, Brolin’s character is doing research and steals a book. The Ocean County Historical Society has that document and many artifacts from the set, including original scripts. One script even had a minor character’s name change. When you’re watching the film, you find yourself looking behind the actors, at the corners of the screen, seeking familiar faces and places. There’s a scene where Brolin is riding his motorcycle down Washington Street. He drives past the church there. He’s in front of the courthouse. Kidder drives over the bridge toward Seaside. In a scene shot in a bar, they were in the Merry Monk. (Amityville - See Page 8)

Heroes:

Continued From Page 1 Township High School’s 15th annual Veterans Recognition Ceremony, a celebration of students, staff, and community members from the area who served, or are serving, in any of the five military branches. The soldiers span the generations: two gentlemen in attendance served in World War II. They rose when Ocone asked if anyone served then, received their applause and melted back into the sea of men when it quieted. The youngest soldier in the ranks was Cameron Teeple, 17, a senior in the high school who completed basic training while still a student—the fi rst at Manchester—and ships out in July. He’s the first in his family to join the U.S. Army. The program said it all: “Each and every Veteran, Serviceman, and Servicewoman is a HERO for serving the United States of America and defending our freedom. The students and staff of MTHS greet you today with our utmost gratitude and respect.” “The ceremony was my idea back when I was Student Government Association adviser. We used to have off on Veterans Day, and I got upset over seeing a commercial for a Veterans Day furniture sale. I believed that our veterans deserved better, so SGA started the ceremony when I was adviser,” Ocone told The Manchester Times on Nov. 5. She gave up the adviser role, but asked to keep organizing the veterans event because “I believed in the mission of showing gratitude to those who serve and served our country.”

The school’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps Color Guard showed the national colors, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited, the National Anthem and each military branch service song played. The Nov. 1 proclamation officially released by President Donald J. Trump just that morning--and just in time, Ocone said, as it’s usually released earlier than a few hours before her ceremony—was read aloud by Crystal Kilfeather, “National Veterans And Military Families Month.” Amidst the waves of graying and balding heads covered by service caps mixed with the backpacks and hoodies of students, the reminder remains that many men and women didn’t come home. Many will never collect their certificates of appreciation that Ocone hand-delivers to audience members as their names, favorite service memories and advice to students is read out. Some of those walked the halls of Manchester High School, and not that long ago. “They shared the same classroom seats that you sit in. Shared the same desks. Shared the same hallways, lockers, and teachers that you currently have,” Ocone said. One was Manchester High School student Sgt. Ron Kubick, who attended the high school through his junior year. He graduated from Manasquan High School in 2006. “He was an imp with the best mohawk you would ever, ever see. And I like to make sure our students know about Ron, because Ron on the surface was a rough-looking individual, and when he passed away, he was an Army Ranger. And if you know anything about Army

Rangers...yeah. Ron was a tough guy. “However, Ron was a writer. And, when he went to Manasquan in 2006, and he graduated, he penned something which was located on his MySpace page, because yeah, MySpace was the thing back then,” Ocone said. “The young people especially can learn from Ron’s words of wisdom which he wrote before he even realized he was going to be serving the United States.” We can change things, and we can make things better. The majority of people reading this are under 30 years old and I seriously need to talk to you. We are here on earth and we have the opportunity to do something truly great. We are the youth. We are the future of this nation and this world. We can change things. We can make things better. We can do whatever we set our minds to, even if it is one thing, one small change, that we help create to better ourselves, our friends, our country. All it takes is a dream. Find a topic you believe in and fight for it, people. Make your dreams a reality. Thank you so much for reading this. Have an amazing life, and don’t forget to do your part for yourself, your friends, and your society. -- Ronald Kubick, 2006. He was 21 when he was killed during combat operations in Afghanistan on April 23, 2010, part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Other graduates remembered were Matthew Zegan (1973-1994, class of 1992), Corporal Nicholas Ott (1988-2011, class of 2006), and Joseph Pushkal (1976-2008, class of 1994).

Amityville:

Continued From Page 5 The priests have a scene on the grounds at Georgian Court. After a boy gets hurt, there’s a scene in a hospital parking lot. Some of those buildings, like the church, still look the same. The few times they are on the road, however, it could be any road. Everything has changed in 40 years. A 1982 document for Amityville: The Possession (currently on hand at the Ocean County Historical Society) has hand-drawn directions to Saint Peter’s church in Point Pleasant Beach. This was where the big church scene was filmed, with Rod Steiger’s priest being haunted as he’s trying to pray. “They wanted to look at the Cathedral of the Air but the Navy wanted nothing to do with that,” O’Neill said. The Cathedral of the Air is an iconic church that, due to its connection with the military base, has aircraft in its stained glass windows. During the third movie, an article written in 1983 said that neighbors were inconvenienced by a helicopter flying over the house all night to create a wind storm for a scene. It also noted that the Ocean County Courthouse, the Sweet Shop on Main Street, and the exterior of the house were filmed for the movie. However, all interior shots of the house weren’t filmed in Toms River, but in Mexico. At one point, when the characters are discussing the murders that happened in the house’s history, Brolin’s character says “Houses don’t have memories.” But the people who live here do.

Park:

Continued From Page 1 Bartlett, the longest serving freeholder in New Jersey, called the renaming of the park in his honor the “capstone” of his nearly 40-year career. “I thank you all for this tremendous honor you have given me,” he told the crowd that attended the ceremony. “I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” The park has now been renamed the John C. Bartlett Jr. County Park at Berkeley Island. It’s located at the end of Brennan Concourse, accessible from Harbor Inn Road. Several hundred people, including local and state officials attended the dedication, which was capped with the unveiling of the new county park sign. The weather cooperated. Skies were blue and clear, temperatures were mild and a brisk wind blew off Barnegat Bay. The 71-year-old freeholder has been fighting colorectal cancer since last year. This August, he announced at a board meeting that his health prevented him from running for another term on the board. He said he would step down when his term expires at the end of December. He walked with a cane and with the help of his wife Peggy on his way up to the podium. And while many speakers lauded his efforts, Bartlett, who serves as liaison to the county department of parks and recreation, said he couldn’t have done it alone. The park was born on May 29, 1983, under Bartlett’s supervision. It was closed

for almost six long years, after Superstorm Sandy slammed into the park on Oct. 29, 2012 and virtually destroyed it. The park reopened on May 23, in part thanks to Bartlett’s efforts. He was almost giddy that day. He even tried out the new splash park, the only one of its kind in Ocean County. Berkeley Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said Bartlett had helped “a rookie mayor” tremendously with the park after Superstorm Sandy. “He helped Berkeley get through the worst natural disaster,” Amato said. “We are very honored to have this park in Berkeley Township.” Freeholder John P. Kelly said his first job was at Berkeley Island County Park many years ago, when Bartlett was the liaison to the department. “You have done a fantastic job and we appreciate it so much,” Kelly said, choking up. “Thank you for all you have done.” Bartlett called himself “a very lucky man.” “I couldn’t have done it without my wife Peggy,” he said. The couple have been married for 46 years. They have a son and a daughter and four much loved children, who Bartlett called the “light of my life.” He was also grateful that his voice, which vanished recently and left him only able to speak in a whisper, had returned. “The good Lord gave me my voice back,” he said. He posed for pictures with his wife, family and officials after his comments, then left shortly after.

–Photo courtesy Manchester Schools By Jennifer Peacock MANCHESTER – Elementary and middle school students will be learning about heroes who have received the highest award for valor in action in the armed forces as part of the Congressional Medal of Honor Character Education program. Students will watch videos featuring medal recipients. The program was developed by the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation to expose students to the core values of courage, commitment, sacrifice, citizenship, integrity and patriotism. The program will enhance the district’s existing character education program.

“You don’t have to don a uniform for service, for sacrifice...It doesn’t matter where you are from or what you’ve done, when you see a need, when you see a challenge, do you sit there and just let it pass you by or do you stand up and say, hey this is the right thing to do and go do it?” Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha said in the video, “Heroes Among Us.” The middle school hopes to get a Medal of Honor recipient to speak at the school’s annual Stand by Me Day in May. The program was free to the district. For more information, visit themedalofhonor. com/character-development.

Manchester Hosts Gun Turn-In Event

MANCHESTER – In an effort by the Manchester Township Police Department to create safer communities, residents will have the opportunity to voluntarily turn in firearms that they no longer want. Please note that this is NOT a buyback, “no questions asked” event. Guns left lying around the home are a common source of tragedy. This Gun Turn-In event provides a way for citizens to dispose of unwanted firearms before a tragedy occurs. A gun that is turned in can never be stolen in a burglary and used later in a violent crime, and it can never fall into the hands of a curious child and cause the death of that child, a friend, or some other innocent person. Guns brought to the event MUST be carried

unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gun-box, securely tied package, and locked in the trunk of your vehicle during transit to the event. Anyone wishing to turn-in an unwanted gun must contact Detective Adam Guker at 732-657-2009 Ext 4210 or email aguker@ manchestertwp.com to set up an appointment. Appointment times are as follows: • November 28, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Manchester Township Police Headquarters • November 28, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., to be picked up at a residence (for those who may not have transportation) • November 28, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Manchester Township Police Headquarters. This program is by appointment only.

Cats:

Continued From Page 1 and vaccinated against rabies, and then returned to their colony to live out their lives. Most TNR programs use a colony caretaker, a person who provides food and shelter to the colony and monitors its health, according to the ASPCA. “TNR helps stabilize the population of community colonies and, over time, reduces them. Nuisance behaviors such as spraying, excessive noisemaking and fighting are largely eliminated and no additional kittens are born,” the ASPCA website said. The ASPCA said that by stabilizing these populations, the cats will have more space, shelter and food. Spayed and neutered cats are generally healthier cats; it calms male cats, which are prone to fights, and eliminates females from going into heat, thereby attracting fewer toms. Manchester Township Business Administrator Donna Markulic said the township is pleased with the results of the program. “We have seen our vet/shelter bills drop since the inception of the program. For example in 2013 our emergency vet/shelter bills totaled $20,889. Since the program started the bills have been 2016: $14,560, 2017: $12,005 and year to date 2018 is $6,825,” Markulic told The Manchester Times. “Experts say that it take 5 years to see a significant decrease in the cat colonies. But we have definitely seen a decrease in costs and the cats that do end up in the shelters are more adoptable due to being free of disease so less cats are euthanized. The 138 cats brought in and spayed or neutered in 2017, 87 were female so that is minimally 87 less liters of cats in Manchester. The results are cumulative.” The program is run by the township’s animal control officer Margaret Dellapietro. The township gives $10,000 out of its animal control budget to Voluntary Auxiliary for Animal Shelters, Inc., which offers trap and neuter services. According to township records, most of the cats caught and released this year, since February, have been adult cats. Three cats out of the dozens listed have been adopted. Most were released to the same spot they were trapped. Community cats are not stray cats, however. These cats are either born in the wild or are abandoned and must adopt wild

behaviors to survive. The cats have been found all over town: Whiting, Pine Ridge, Village 7, Fox Hollow, Crestwood 7, Crestwood 5, Oak Knoll, Village 4, Villag 6, Crestwood 1, Crestwood 4, along Route 70, Beckerville, Cedar Glen, and Pine Lake Park. Not everyone is a fan. In a March 8, 2017 guest blog for National Geographic’s “Changing Planet,” Daphna Nachminovitch, senior vice president of cruelty investigations for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said TNR programs are not only inhumane to those they purport to help—the cats—but are a danger to other wildlife, specifically birds, and humans. “TNR programs are doomed to failure because of basic population dynamics: Even if all of the cats in a ‘colony’ are eventually spayed and neutered (which is nearly impossible), the food set out for them will always attract ‘new’ cats. And feeding cats also promotes abandonment, since people are more inclined to abandon their cats if they believe that someone else will ‘take care of’ them,” Nachminovitch wrote. Homeless cats should be adopted into homes, and if that’s not possible, Nachminovitch argued, euthanized. The ASPCA agrees that cats, specifically kittens, should be socialized and adopted if at all possible. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has come out against TNR programs as well. The CDC’s concern lies with disease prevention, especially rabies. “Moreover, TNVR has not been shown to reliably reduce feral cat colony populations because of low implementation rates, inconsistent maintenance, and immigration of unsterilized cats into colonies. For these reasons, T N V R programs are not effective methods for reducing public health concerns or for controlling feral cat populations. Instead, responsible pet ownership, universal rabies vaccination of pets, and removal of strays remain integral components to control rabies and other disease,” a CDC report on programs said. However, Manchester Council President Craig Wallis said the township is pleased with the program and said it should continue. To report feral cats, call Animal Control 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, excluding holidays, at 732-657-2009 ext. 4606.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SUFFERING WITH NEUROPATHY? IS THE NUMBNESS & TINGLING UNBEARABLE? Time to get your life back! This advanced, all-natural treatment can help you finally find long lasting relief. “I can’t sleep at night – It’s like constant pins & needles in my feet” Peripheral neuropathy often affects multiple facets of a person’s life; they can’t sleep, they’re constantly suffering, and can’t enjoy life the way they used to. Whether this sounds like what you’ve been dealing with, or if you’ve only just begun to feel the numbness, tingling, or pain associated with neuropathy, it’s important you take action to find relief. So many people suffering from neuropathy try lots of exhausting treatment options and medications with little success. That is no longer necessary with this innovative program by Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation, covered by most major insurance providers including Medicare. We’re offering FREE consultations ($245 value) for our neuropathy treatment – call 732-345-1377 to reserve your consult to learn what custom treatment program our doctors can create for you.

If you’re interested in learning firsthand about this breakthrough treatment, call for a completely FREE initial consult ($245 value) – 732-345-1377. But hurry, this valuable offer is only available to the first 17 callers! Forget about drugs with nasty side effects, or being told to “just live with it” Doctors who couldn’t help you, failed attempts to find relief, endless frustration: these are things of the past. The team of experts at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation (MPR) offer holistic and effective solutions to your numbness, tingling, burning, and pins & needles sensations. At MPR, it’s all about YOU and your needs. Each patient receives a customized treatment program, a curated combination of the most trusted and successful technologies that actually have an effect of your symptoms, without having to take more medications. This treatment is unique and works FAST K-Laser therapy at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation has been proven to reduce the painful and numbing symptoms of neuropathy, whether patients are in the early stages, or have been suffering for years and are finally seeking treatment. Tom P., an MPR patient, explains, “I could barely feel anything happening during my laser treatment except for a bit of a warm feeling. I knew it had to be working though, because I could tell a difference even when I went home that day. And now, months later, I feel SO much better!” In addition, the doctors use non-invasive care to eliminate any nerve issues, which effectively gets to the root of your pain. They then treat the symptoms, allowing you to not only feel relief, but also address the cause of your pain. Special low-force instrumentation frees the nerves to eliminate any damage caused by old herniated discs or arthritis. One of the especially distinctive characteristics of the neuropathy treatment at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation is their use of Power Plate© technology, which stimulates the body’s natural reflexive response through vibration. This immensely increases blood and nutrient circulation to the nerve cells. What are you waiting for? This treatment is DIFFERENT, SUCCESSFUL, and the initial consultation is FREE! You have nothing to lose. The team of doctors at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation aims to help their patients get their lives back. Living in pain or trying ineffective treatments time and time again are a thing of the past. Call today for your free consult – 732-345-1377.

H ERE ’ S T O Y OUR H EALTH Dr. Izzy’s Sound News Presented By: Isidore Kirsh, Ph.D., F.A.A.A. (N.J. Lic. #678)

Dr. Isidore Kirsh Ph.D., F.A.A.A.

Secondhand Smoke – It Is Bad For Your Hearing Health, Too We all know that smoking is bad for our health. Typically, we think of lung cancer, heart disease or asthma as the closely associated effects of long-term tobacco smoking, but a new study conducted by New York University School of Medicine found that, “Teenagers exposed to tobacco smoke may also have significant hearing loss – and not even know it.” The study participants – ages 12 to 19 – were tested for two specific things: The amount of a tobacco related chemical in their blood called Cotinine and for severity of hearing loss in the low, mid and high frequencies. The Results; They May Surprise You What the researches discovered was astounding. The children who lived in a smoking household were twice as likely to develop hearing difficulty compared to a child from a non-smoking home. The higher the level of the Cotinine found in their blood, the higher the child’s risk of developing a hearing loss. Some children with especially high levels of Cotinine were at three times the risk for

hearing loss. Many of the teens in the study were found to have a measurable hearing loss, yet none of them were aware of it. Their youth and the gradual nature of hearing loss made their experiences almost undetectable. This inability to communicate effectively can lead to social problems at school and poor performance in the classroom, making regular hearing screenings for young people as necessary as regular dental checks. Encourage Them To Get Their Hearing Tested Dr. Izzy would encourage you to have your children or grandchildren’s hearing screened so we can make sure that everyone you love is living a life with better hearing. If your children or grandchildren are listening to loud music via MP3 players or iPods, you will be happy to know that we specialize in custom earbuds that are molded to fit their ears perfectly, offering a better acoustic seal and the ability to enjoy a richer music experience at a lower volume.

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 gardenstatehearing.com. Expanded Whiting Hours!

5 Health Benefits Of White Sage And How To Use It

By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph. White sage is known botanically as Salvia apiana and can be purchased in a bundle and you can also drink it as a tea. This plant has impressive medicinal properties and is used in many wellness rituals. I think some people mistakenly assume you can get high off it, but you can’t. I also want to emphasize this is a medicinal herb for everyone, and it’s not just for new agers, and its benefits were put on Earth for all to utilize. Sage is just like every other herbal remedy you’ve heard of. You can take herbs as a dietary supplement (think ginger, Echinacea or dandelion)… you can drink tea from the plant (think chamomile or coffee), or you can apply an herb as a compress (think of calendula). You can distill plants and inhale their essential oils, think of lavender or peppermint. It’s all medicine! I’m just giving you a new way to extract the medicine from a plant, by burning it, and this practice is referred to as smudging. Here are 5 benefits of white sage: Treats Sinus Infections: You can inhale the aroma given off a burning white sage bundle for a few minutes, or you can drink it as a tea. However you do it, it’s the compound called “eucalyptol” also known as 1,8-cineole that when inhaled, reduces painful sinus inflammation. It may kill the associated pathogens too! That’s pretty amazing considering the side effects of prescribed antibiotics and antihistamines. 2. Calms a Sore Throat: Sage leaf tea is a proven strategy for alleviating a sore throat, at least according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Plant Guide. Sage tea as you know will reduce mucous secretions of the

sinuses, throat, and lungs. 3. Relieves Menstrual Pain: White sage tea might provide relief from menstrual period cramps and possibly some symptoms of menopause like sweating and hot flashes. This benefit occurs because sage contains phytoestrogens, which are plant-derived estrogens. 4. Provides Cleansing Energy: Sage is kind of like an eraser, it will help remove the day’s burdens and ease emotional suffering. It may help with mild anxiety or depression. Smudging is the quickest way because when you inhale, the compounds go straight to your bloodstream and brain. Just FYI, the practice of burning herbs (aka smudging) is a non-religious one. You’re just burning plant leaves rather than swallowing the supplement. If you’d like, you can certainly pray while you burn the medicine. 5. Cleans the Air: Burning the embers of sage (aka smudging) in a room is helpful if someone is sick. My tip is designed to clean a room where someone has been coughing or sneezing from pneumonia, or influenza for example… and you desire to clear the air space of these germs so you don’t catch it too. If you work in nursing homes, clinics or hospitals, you might want to go home and smudge yourself to help deter infection from pathogens that hitched a ride on your clothes. Research has found that burning sage for an hour reduced the levels of bacteria in the air by 94 percent, and this benefit lasted for 24 hours. If you don’t want to burn it, drinking sage tea is an option. You can make your own white sage tea, or buy a commercially prepared form at health food stores and online.

Inside The Law The New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act

Robert C. Shea Esq.

By Michael J. Deem, Esq., of R.C. Shea and Associates On October 29, New Jersey became the 10th state to enact a statewide mandatory paid-sick-leave law. The New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act requires that nearly all New Jersey employers provide up to 40 hours of paid sick leave per year to covered employees. Here is an overview of what New Jersey employers need to know: Who Is Covered? Covered employees: The act applies to most employees working in the state “for compensation.” The act expressly excludes employees in the construction industry employed under a collective bargaining agreement, per diem healthcare employees, and public employees who already have sick leave benefits. Covered employers: The act broadly applies to any business entity, irrespective of size, that employs employees in the state of New Jersey, including a temporary help service firm. It expressly excludes public employers required to provide their employees with sick leave. How Is Leave Accrued? Accrual period: The act requires employers to designate any period of 12 consecutive months as a “benefit year.” Employers cannot change the established benefit year without first notifying the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Under the act, current employees begin accruing sick time on the effective date of the act. New employees hired after the effective date of the act begin accruing sick time on the first date of their employment. Accrual limits: In each benefit year, an employee will accrue up to 40 hours of sick time at a rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked. Alternatively, an employer may “frontload” the full 40 hours at the beginning of the benefit year. Employers with existing paid time off (PTO), personal days, vacation days and sick-day policies may utilize those policies to satisfy the requirements of the act as long as employees can use the time off as required by the act. In the case of a temporary help service firm placing an employee with client firms, paid sick leave will accrue on the basis of the total time worked on assignment with the firm, not separately for each client firm to which the employee is assigned. How Can Leave Be Used? • Employers are not required to permit employees to use more than 40 hours of sick leave in a benefit year. Employees can use accrued sick time after the 120th day of their first date of employment for the following reasons: • Diagnosis, care or treatment of—or recovery from—an employee’s own mental or physical illness, including preventive medical care. • Aid or care for a covered family member during diagnosis, care or treatment of—or recovery from—the family member’s mental or physical illness, including preventive medical care. • Circumstances related to an employee’s or their family member’s status as a victim of domestic or sexual violence (including the need to obtain related medical treatment, seek counseling, relocate or participate in related legal services). • Closure of an employee’s workplace or of a school/childcare of an employee’s child because of a public official’s order relating to a public health emergency. • Time to attend a meeting requested or required by school staff to discuss a child’s health condition or disability. The act broadly defines “family member” to include individuals related by blood to the employee or whose close association with the employee is the equivalent of a family relationship. Employers may not require an employee to find a replacement to cover the employee’s absence. Carryover and Payout Rules Maximum carryover: The act does not require employers to permit employees to carry over more than 40 hours of accrued sick time in a single benefit year. Optional buyout: Employers may, but are not obligated to, offer to pay employees for their unused accrued sick time in the final month of the benefit year. If employees agree to receive the payment, they may choose a payment for the full amount of their unused accrued sick time or for 50 percent of such time. The payment amount shall be based on the same rate of pay that the employee earns at the time of the payment. If an employer frontloads the entire amount of sick time, it must either pay the employee for the full amount of unused accrued sick time in the final month of the employer’s benefit year or carry forward any unused sick time to the next benefit year. Employee approval is not required. In What Increments Can Workers Use Leave? The act provides employers with the discretion to choose the increments in which its employees may use accrued sick time. However, the largest increment chosen may not be larger than the number of hours an employee was scheduled to work in a given shift. For example, if an employee is scheduled to work a 7-hour

shift, the employer cannot mandate that the employee use paid sick time in increments of eight hours. What Happens Upon Transfer, Separation or Reinstatement? Michael J. Deem Transfer of employment to a related or successor employer: If an employee is employed by a successor employer or transferred to a separate division, entity or location of the same employer, the employee will retain and be entitled to use all accrued sick time. Separation of employment: Unless the employer has a policy or collective bargaining agreement providing for the payment of accrued sick leave upon termination, resignation, retirement or other separation from employment, the act does not require the employer to pay employees for unused accrued sick leave upon the separation from employment. Reinstatement of employment: If an employee is separated from employment but then reinstated within six months, all of the employee’s unused and accrued sick time must be reinstated. What Notice and Documentation Is Required? Foreseeable absences: Employers may require advance notice, not to exceed seven calendar days, of the intention to use the leave and the expected duration. Employers may require employees to make a reasonable effort to schedule the use of sick leave in a manner that does not unduly disrupt the operations of the employer. Employers may prohibit employees from using foreseeable sick leave on certain dates, and require reasonable documentation if sick leave that is not foreseeable is used during those dates. Unforeseeable absences: Employers may require employees to give notice of the intention to use the leave as soon as practicable, provided that the employer has notified the employee of this requirement. Absences of three days or more: If an employee is absent for at least three consecutive days, the employer may require documentation that confirms that the employee used sick leave for a covered purpose. What Are the Notice and Record-Keeping Rules? Employers must post a notification of employees’ rights under the act and provide employees with a written copy of the notice within 30 days after the department has issued a model notice and each time thereafter when an employee is hired or requests such a notice. Additionally, employers must retain records documenting hours worked by employees and paid sick time taken by employees for a period of five years and permit the department access to those records. What If We Have a Collective Bargaining Agreement? The act does not apply to employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) that is in effect at the time of the effective date of the act, at least until the CBA expires. Even then, employees or their representatives may waive the rights under the act during the negotiation of the CBA. What About Local Paid-Sick-Leave Laws? The act preempts all existing and future municipal ordinances in New Jersey regarding paid sick time. How Will the Law Be Enforced? Employees may sue their employers for violating the act and can seek actual damages suffered as a result of the violation, plus an equal amount of liquidated damages. How Does the Anti-Retaliation Provision Work? The anti-retaliation provision of the act includes a rebuttable presumption that an employer’s actions are unlawful if it takes adverse action against an employee within 90 days of the employee engaging in activity protected under the act. This includes such actions as filing a complaint with the department, cooperating with an investigation, opposing policies and practices that are unlawful under the act, or informing other individuals of their rights under the act. What Should Employers Do Now? In anticipation of the effective date of this new law, you should review your paid time off, vacation or other paid leave policies to determine whether you will have to implement a paid-sicktime policy for any of your employees or amend your existing policies to ensure compliance with the act. You should also inform managers and supervisors of any new policy changes and of the importance of the provisions of the law prohibiting retaliation. You should also consider revising your employee handbooks to account for these changes. For example, if you choose not to pay out accrued but unused sick leave upon termination, you must make that abundantly clear in your written policies. Finally, you should be on the lookout for the poster and template notice issued by the Department.

My Husband Is Addicted To Football!

Dear Joel, My husband and I had a really great summer. We took a nice vacation at the beach and made the most out of every weekend but now that the summer sun is fading away, I have to face a lonely life. See my wonderful husband is an extreme football fan. Once September arrives it’s nothing but JETS, JETS, JETS. I don’t like football, what can I do? Answer: I know you don’t like football, but you do like your husband so why not let him have his time in front of the TV. I know it cuts into your weekend time, but that can be a plus. Football season is a great time

to try out new recipes, catch up some of your favorite shows, slip out for some holiday shopping, clean out the garage, and lots more activities, like crafts. Why not make a scrap book of your wonderful summer together? He gave you lots of his time and focus in the summer. Let him take some time for himself and you may just find a great gift in your stocking. Write to joel@preferredcares.com.

Two More Measles Cases Confirmed In Ocean County

By Kimberly Bosco OCEAN COUNTY – Two more cases of measles have been confirmed in Ocean County, according to the New Jersey Department of Health. Ocean County residents may have been exposed to this highly contagious disease between October 25 and 30. These two individuals developed symptoms of the disease after exposure to another who became infected after international travel. The Department of Health is considering this an outbreak of measles in the community. If you have visited any of the following location, you may have been exposed: • NPGS, 231 Main St, Lakewood, NJ 08701: October 25 between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and October 29 between 2:15 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. • Pizza Plus, 241 4th St, Lakewood, NJ 08701 on October 28 between 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. If more exposure locations are identified,

the health department will update the information on their webpage. While the New Jersey Department of Health and the Ocean County Health Department work together to notify those who may have been exposed to the disease, officials remind everyone to stay alert and aware of the symptoms. Measles symptoms include: • Rash • High fever • Cough • Runny nose • Red, watery eyes. Measles can cause serious illness such as pneumonia and encephalitis, and even miscarriage or premature birth in pregnant women. As an airborne disease, measles spread through coughs or sneezes. People can also acquire the measles if they come in contact with mucus or saliva from an infected person. The Depar tment recommends that anyone who visited any of the locations

listed above during the specified dates/ times should contact a health provider immediately to discuss potential exposure and risk of developing the illness. If you have been exposed, you are at risk if you have not been vaccinated or have not had measles. Individuals potentially exposed, if infected, could develop symptoms as late as November 20. “Two doses of measles vaccine are about 97 percent effective in preventing measles,” said Dr. Christina Tan, state epidemiologist. If you suspect you have been exposed, officials recommend contacting your health care provider prior to going to a medical office or emergency room in order to protect other patients and staff from possible infection. “We urge everyone to check to make sure they and their family members are up-todate on measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine and all other age-appropriate immunizations. Getting vaccinated not only protects you, it protects others around you who are too young to get the vaccine

or can’t receive it for medical reasons. If you’re planning an international trip, the World Health Organization recommends that adults or adolescents unsure of their immune status get a dose of measles vaccine before traveling,” Dr. Tan added. Prior to international travel, state health department officials recommend: • Infants 6 through 11 months of age should receive one dose of MMR vaccine. Infants who get one dose of MMR vaccine before their first birthday should get two more doses (one dose at 12 through 15 months of age and another dose separated by at least 28 days). • Children 1 year and older should receive two doses of MMR vaccine, separated by at least 28 days. • Teenagers and adults who do not have evidence of immunity against measles should get two doses of MMR vaccine separated by at least 28 days. For more information about measles, contact your health care provider, or visit the Department’s website.

Children’s Hospital To Be Evaluated, After Fatal Outbreak Elsewhere By Jennifer Peacock TOMS RIVER – A specialty hospital in Toms River will get a visit from the New Jersey Department of Health in November to ensure it has an adequate infection prevention control program in place. Prompted by the deaths of nine children at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Haskell, New Jersey, the Department said it would be scheduling a visit with other children’s hospitals - including Children’s Specialized Hospital in Toms River and Mountainside - for inspections and training. The Department released a fi nal report on the Haskell facility. According to in-

dustry standards set forth by the Centers Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), part of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Haskell facility had deficiencies in its infection prevention, but overall did not deliver substandard care to its immunocompromised pediatric patients. “Every year in the state, there are hundreds of outbreaks at healthcare facilities,” New Jersey Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal said. “Facility outbreaks are not always preventable, but best practices can be used to minimize the chance they occur among the most vulnerable patients in New Jersey,”

The Department’s Division of Health Facility Survey and Field Operations found that infection control issues rank in the top three of deficiencies cited during healthcare facility inspections. CMS said infection control is a top deficiency for nursing homes and hospitals nationally. Patients at Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation got sick from adenovirus. Eighteen children got sick, and 9 died. The virus usually causes minor illness in healthy children and adults, but can be deadly to immunocompromised persons. CMS will implement new long-term care facility regulations by November 2019, which will require those facilities

to have on-site an infection preventionist to oversee the infection prevention control program. It was unclear if Children’s Specialized Hospital already has an infection preventionist on site. Its Toms River location is both a long-term care facility and outpatient center on Stevens Road. The New Jersey Department of Health has, si nce October 2016, dedicated $102,915 to the education of 212 nursing homes staff in infection control through a partnership with New Jersey Hospital Association and the Northern & Southern NJ Chapters of Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.

Remembering Our Veterans On The 100Th Anniversary Of The End Of WWI

By Freeholder Director Gerry P. Little One hundred years ago, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the guns went silent and the killing finally ended. Today, on Veterans Day 2018, I ask all of our county residents to join with me and remember all of our veterans who have proudly worn the uniforms of the United States Armed Forces.

From the sweltering heat of the Monmouth Battlefield to the snowy forests of Bastogne, America’s veterans have fought for liberty and freedom around the globe. Let us take the time on November 11 to say thank you for all of their great sacrifices. As the number of Second World War veterans continues to shrink, the overall veterans’ population is likewise declining.

At one point, more than 68,000 veterans lived in Ocean County. Today, that number is closer to 40,000. While we may be home to fewer living veterans, our thanks and our gratitude has not diminished in the least. In recent years, we have honored our Civil War veterans on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of that great conflict. For the past two years, the county

has hosted a series of ceremonies commemorating our residents who fought in the First World War. When it comes to our veterans, Ocean County never forgets. Let us also remember the brave men and women who today are on watch around the globe protecting our freedom. Today, less than 1 percent of all American families have a son or daughter serving in the military. These families deserve our thanks. Like our nation as a whole, Ocean County has a long and proud history, during which our sons and daughters have left their homes and loved ones behind to fight for freedom. Freedom fighters fought the battle of the Toms River Blockhouse near the end of the Revolutionary War right here in the county seat, just steps away from the County Courthouse where volunteers later mustered for both the Civil War and World War I. A few steps farther sits the county’s War of Terror monument, which lists the 13 brave county residents who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting in the War on Terror. So I ask again that all of our residents take a moment or two on the upcoming holiday to remember our veterans. Solemn ceremonies are scheduled in many of our towns during the long weekend. On Sunday, November 11, Ocean County will mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of the Great War with a ceremony at the Ocean County Courthouse in Downtown Toms River beginning at 10:30 a.m. The Toms River Veterans Day Parade will be held on Monday, November 12 beginning at 9:45 a.m. along Main Street and Washington Street to Town Hall. A full listing of Veterans Day events can be found at oceancountytourism.com.

OHI Reminds Patients Of The Importance Of Measles Vaccine

By Kimberly Bosco LAKEWOOD – After a case of the measles was officially confirmed by the county and state health departments recently, Ocean Health Initiatives, Inc., (OHI) is reminding residents about the measles vaccine. The case of measles was discovered in Ocean County between Oct. 13 and Oct. 21. As a Federally-Qualified Health Center, OHI is now stressing the importance of getting your vaccine. “The Measles is a highly contagious virus that is spread through the air, (i.e., coughing and sneezing) and by direct contact with infectious droplets,” stated OHI. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), symptoms start to appear anywhere from 7-14 days after exposure in the form of high fever, cough, runny nose and red watery eyes. These symptoms could be followed by white spots in the mouth and a rash that

spreads downward from your head to your neck, body, arms, legs and feet. Although measles is highly contagious, it can be prevented with an MMR vaccine in children and adults. Children get two doses, the fi rst during months 12 to 15, and the second during ages 4-6. OHI Health Centers carry the MMR Vaccine and are available for administration by appointment. Teenagers and adults may also receive the vaccine if not vaccinated during childhood. If you have been, or believe you have been exposed to the measles, you should mention this when booking an appointment so that proper medical procedures can be taken to protect other patients and the staff from risk. For more information, contact Kyle Fannan, marketing development associate, at 732-719-1570. To schedule an appointment, call 732-363-6655. For more information about OHI’s services, visit ohinj.org.

Project Medicine Drop Box Collects 5,000 lbs. Of Medications

Residential Dementia & Alzheimer’s Community

By Kimberly Bosco LACEY – Lacey Police reported that the department’s “Project Medicine Drop Box” has so far disposed of a whopping 5,000 lbs. of medication since the start of the program in 2013. The drop box is located in the lobby of the Lacey Township Police Department and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The purpose of the drop box is to provide residents with a safe and legal method to properly dispose of unwanted medications, police said. “Once the medication is dropped in the box, the bulk quantity of medications received is weighed and then transported to a designated incinerator facility located in New Jersey,” stated Chief Michael DiBella in a press release. It’s as easy as showing up to the police

department with your unwanted medication and dropping it in the box. No further steps are required. Residents should note: syringes and liquids are not permitted in the drop box. “Although residents may be more comfortable emptying their pills (while in the lobby) into an unmarked plastic bag before dropping them into the drop box, the program allows for the resident to drop the medication in their original container,” stated DiBella. Not only safe and convenient, the “Project Medicine Drop Box” is also anonymous. No record will be made of those individuals who participate in the program. For more information, contact Detective Lieutenant Christopher Cornelius at 609693-6636 ext. 2566.

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE By Robert D. Verderese Those who want an alternative to the talk show format need not look any further. Tune in to “Preferred Company” with Joel Markel, President and owner of “ Prefer red H ome Health Care” and his co-host, Marianne Lev y, airing 8 to 10 a.m., Monday through Friday, on WOBM-AM ( B e a c h R a d i o 116 0 and 1310).

wolfgang puck’s kitchen This Go-To Italian Classic Is Perfect For An Elegant Autumn Dinner By Wolfgang Puck Everybody who loves to cook, even if it isn’t all the time, has their “go-to” dishes. Recipes they can always rely on for a main course they can be certain everyone will like whether the occasion is casual or special. The trick is to have something that’s quick and easy to prepare while simultaneously looking and feeling special, impressing guests at first sight and providing big, pleasing flavor from the very first bite. For me, those characteristics quickly narrow down the field to a recipe I’ve loved for many years and still know will be appreciated by anybody I serve it to: My version of chicken piccata with lemon-caper sauce. You’ll find the dish on the menus of many Italian restaurants. Generally, it describes boneless, skinless chicken breasts that have been sliced or pounded, or both, to a thinness that makes it possible to cook them through very quickly over fairly high heat. Lightly dredged in flour, rapidly sauteed in olive oil, and then set aside while the flavorful pan deposits are transformed into a swiftly assembled sauce of garlic, lemon juice, white wine, chicken stock, butter, capers and some parsley, the chicken seems transformed into something that delights all the senses at once. No wonder the Italian term “piccata” actually comes to us from the French “piquer,” the same source as a familiar English word “piquant” that evokes pleasant, lively flavors. One of the wonderful things about this recipe is that you can make it in a single large saute pan and, as long as you have all of the ingredients prepped in advance, the entire cooking process will take you no more than about 15 minutes, start to finish. So you won’t be away from your family or friends very long - and, if you’re fortunate enough to have an eat-in kitchen, you can very easily put on an impressive culinary show. Feel free to vary the dish, as well, with thin cutlets of turkey breast, veal, pork tenderloin or a fairly meaty seafood like swordfish. Many people like to serve a starchy side such as rice, potatoes or pasta with the piccata to soak up all the delicious sauce, but one of my favorite accompaniments sauteed spinach. It takes little more than a minute to cook, especially if you start with prewashed bags of baby spinach leaves, and it offers a brightly colored, flavorful contrast to the pale lemon-colored, tangy main dish.

4 teaspoons capers, drained 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped Lemon slices, optional garnish First, butterfly each chicken breast half: Place the breast half on a cutting board and, starting along the thickest lengthwise edge, use a sharp knife to cut horizontally partway through the breast until you can open it up into a butterfly shape. Place the butterflied breast between two pieces of lightly oiled plastic wrap, and pound with a meat mallet to a uniform thickness of about 1/4 inch (6 mm). Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Spread the flour on a dinner plate and dredge both sides of each butterflied breast in flour, shaking off the excess. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add enough of the oil to form a thin, even layer and, when it’s hot enough to shimmer slightly, add the chicken, working in batches if necessary to avoid crowding the pan. Cook each piece until light golden-brown, about 2 minutes per side, then remove it and set it aside. Add more oil to the pan as needed. Pour off any oil remaining in the pan and add 2 tablespoons of the butter. As soon as it melts, add the garlic and, the moment the garlic begins to turn very light golden, add the wine and stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits. Add the chicken stock, lemon juice and capers. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, and use a whisk to briskly stir in the rest of the butter a few pieces at a time to form a creamy sauce. Continue simmering and stirring until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning, if needed, with salt and pepper. Stir in the parsley. Return all the chicken to the pan, and turn it in the sauce to warm through. Transfer the chicken to heated serving plates, spooning the sauce and capers evenly over each portion. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired, and serve with sauteed baby spinach. SAUTÉED BABY SPINACH WITH GARLIC AND CHILI FLAKES Serves 4

CHICKEN PICCATA WITH LEMONCAPER SAUCE Serves 4

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 large garlic cloves, minced 2 pounds baby spinach leaves, rinsed and patted dry 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes Pinch of sugar Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 1/2 cup (125 mL) extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra as needed Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-table spoon pieces 2 tablespoons garlic minced garlic 1/2 cup white wine 1/2 cup good-quality canned chicken stock or broth 2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. As soon as it is hot enough to swirl easily, add the garlic and saute just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Working in large handfuls, add the spinach to the pan, stirring it continuously; as it begins wilts down, immediately add more (and keep stirring) until all of the spinach is in the pan. The moment all of the spinach has wilted, after about 1 minute, stir in red pepper flakes to taste along with the sugar; then season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
