By Jennifer Peacock LAKEHURST – The Lakehurst Board of Education has tentatively scheduled its 2019-2020 budget adoption for 7 p.m. March 19, with a board workshop starting at 6:30 p.m. Its next regularly scheduled board meeting is
7 p.m. April 16. The figures for its 2019-2020 proposed budget were not available at press time. However, a copy of the district’s “user friendly” budget from 2018-19 was available, showing a proposed total operating budget of
$8.5 million, $1.2 million of that to be raised through local taxes. One challenge facing the approximately 376-student district is how its $1 million mold remediation bill will be paid. School officials (Budget - See Page 5)

Continued From Page 1 is also the township’s public safety director, spoke briefly at the Feb. 11 Township Council meeting about the conversation she had with members of both the Whiting and Manchester volunteer first aid squads recently. Brian Klimakowski, the former township police chief and life member of the Manchester first aid squad, offered his comments at the Feb. 25 meeting. Council met in executive session - a closed door meeting excluding the public - with Parker at its March 11 meeting to discuss the matter. Parker said Feb. 11 that 25 percent of calls are answered by volunteers while 75 percent are answered by outside vendor, “which is unmanaged by Manchester Police or me as Public Safety Director. So that’s concerning.” That vendor is Quality Medical Transport. The company has had a contract with Manchester first aid for 24 years, and Whiting for 19 years, according to owner Sal Murante Sr. “It seems to work, and it keeps the volunteers. We support them 100 percent. We’re not here to put them out of business,” Murante said. A member of the Whiting First Aid who was not authorized to speak with the press on behalf of the squad said Whiting has three rigs but can only run one because of lack of manpower. The squad runs 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and has between 20-25 members. Marie Klimakowski, president of the Man-
chester First Aid Squad, said her squad has 27 members and three rigs. Members from both squads respond to calls from their respective buildings. Both use Quality Medical Transport to supplement their work. Murante said most of his contracts are with municipalities. He operates 40 rigs - all of which are certified by Department of Health standards and above and beyond that - and 120 employees. As per Medicare rules, Quality must bill clients, but Murante said his company offers payment plans and steep discounts. The hierarchy of emergency services is spelled out by ordinance. “The Emergency Management Coordinator oversees the First Aid Squads, the Chief of Police/Director of Public Safety oversees the Office of Emergency Management and the Mayor is the executive of all Department/Division of the Township,” township Business Administrator Donna Markulic said. “But the Township has no authority or control over Quality Medical Transport.” Parker did tell The Manchester Times after the Feb. 11 meeting that no problems or issues have arisen, that she is aware of, from Quality Medical Transport. One issue that continues to plague all volunteer organizations is its lack of new volunteers. The township, nearly 83 square miles, receives between 850-1,000 calls a month, according to statistics provided by the county. Call times are anywhere from 20 minutes to more than an hour. “All I can say is that the Chief of Police has brought to our attention a serious concern and the numbers really speak for themselves.
Our volunteers cannot answer the number of calls, nor can they answer even a majority of the calls. When the percentages dropped as low as 25 percent and sometimes even lower, it’s concerning. We would be remiss if we disregarded this issue,” Markulic said. “Volunteerism around the country is dropping. This is not just a Manchester Township issue. The requirements to become an EMT and remain a certified EMT are quite challenging and many in the field flock to paid positions.” According to the chief, many of the surrounding communities have supplemented with paid EMS. Parker said Feb. 11, and it was reiterated Feb. 25, that the standards for rejecting applicants to the first aid squad are spelled out by ordinance, usually for disqualifying felonies or misdemeanors. While she has rejected some applicants, she has not done so “arbitrarily.” (Rejected applicants can, in writing, appeal that decision and be accepted if they show “affirmatively demonstrated rehabilitation.”) “I do not feel that lowering the standard is a good idea,” Parker said. Brian Klimakowski disagreed. “Some of the tough time is the town’s, is the background checks. People are being denied outside the ordinance.” He and members and supporters from both squads attended the Feb. 25 council meeting. “What is the overall reason for moving to paid EMS?” Brian Klimakowski asked. While “balance billing” from Quality Medical Transport may be a concern for residents, the bigger concern as he sees it is all the
townships with paid EMS “are in the red.” He was chief of police and acting business administrator when Mayor Kenneth Palmer came into office. He remembers Palmer’s campaign goal to lower municipal taxes, which have decreased each year Palmer has been in office. “If we bring on an animal like this, it’s going to grow exponentially,” Brian Klimakowski said. “An ambulance? One hundred eighty to two hundred thousand dollars. A stretcher - $30,000. Employment issues? Some would ask, well then how can they [Quality Medical Transport] do it, and I’d say, it’s because they’re not a government. They’re not hauling the government freight. They’re not dealing with crazy healthcare costs.” One EMS employee, with salary and insurance under government obligations, could cost $84,000, Brian Klimakowski said. He added that he was disappointed that no one from either first aid squad was alerted that this issue would come up at a council meeting. He said members of the squads are “stakeholders” in this discussion. “We should be at the table. We’re stakeholders, right? Unless you just want a complete hostile takeover of the whole thing. Either way, we’re stakeholders,” Brian Klimakowski said. He added that he doesn’t like how the volunteers have been treated in this process. “We’re not blaming the volunteers. They’re very good. We just don’t have enough of them,” Council President Joan Brush said. “When the chief spoke to us last meeting, we didn’t make any decision. We said we (First Aid - See Page 5)

Continued From Page 1 have said the district doesn’t have the money. The issue came up at the Lakehurst Borough Council meeting March 7. Mayor Harry Robbins and Council President Steven Oglesby said the borough was asked by the school district to go to bond for the money. “They came to us, we had a meeting. They asked if we could bond for them. We looked into it, and there’s no legal way even if we wanted to,” Robbins said. Even if it were legal, Robbins said, going to bond for the school district would hurt the borough’s bond rating, and if an emergency
arose, the borough wouldn’t be able to bond for any more money. “Our own bond counsel said it’s illegal for us to lend them money or try to skirt the issue. It wouldn’t be prudent, but it’s also not legal,” Oglesby added. Mold was found throughout the elementary school building over the summer, forcing the entire building to be shut down for cleaning. The school’s K-8 population started the school year in different locations - St. John Roman Catholic Church in Lakehurst, and Whiting and Ridgeway elementary schools and Manchester Middle School in Manchester - and didn’t return to their own building until Jan. 7.

OPINIONS & COMMENTARY E ditorial What Teacher Inspired You? “Monsieur Bonehead. Monsieur Conehead.” That was how Jack Kolmansberger introduced himself to his class, with a French accent, getting us kids engaged right from the first day of school. It was like he was telling us: “Education is important, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun.” I ran into him years ago. I was walking with my daughter on the Island Heights boardwalk. He seemed to remember me, too. I’m not sure if it was because my father was an administrator or if Jack was just the type of person who remembered everyone. He told me he had “cancer of the everything” and cheerfully joked about his treatment. Officials and surviving relatives remembered him at a ceremony not too long ago at Shelter
Cove in Toms River. They were honor ing him for his work in the recreation department. But I remember him as one of my French teachers. It’s nice to see he had an impact on other people as well. Apparently, he touched a lot of lives and his legacy is clear to see. I’m sure you have a teacher – or teachers – who you remember fondly. Take a minute away from the hectic world and just think about them. Write out a thank you to them. It doesn’t mat te r if they ever get to see it. Remember what they wanted for you. With all the negative things being spread on social media, post something positive instead. Let their legacy live on. Chris Lundy News Editor

Letters To The Editor Funding Cuts Will Hurt Kids’ Emotional Education I am a teacher in the Toms River School District. I have nieces and nephews who attend the s cho ol s , a t e a ch le vel (elementary, middle and h ig h s cho ol). T he i m pending implementation of S2 (which is reducing state aid to the districts) will not only put my job at risk, along with hundreds of other teachers in the district, but will also severely impact the education and growth of each and ever y student in attendance at our 18 schools. We are living through scary times in this country and now, more than e ve r, c h i l d r e n n e e d a quality education that not only teaches them how to read and write and solve math problems, etc., but also teaches them right from wrong and how to work with and get along with others and how to deal with their emotions. Believe it or not, many students don’t learn these life skills at home. M a ny a r e not g r owing up with loving and nurturing environments that many of us grew up with. Instead, they learn skills and values at school because of teachers who work hard to make sure they’re not only teaching a c a d e m ic le s s on s , but also life lessons. However, I can’t give my st udent s a qu alit y, well-rounded education if my class size balloons t o 4 0 s t u d e nt s . I a l s o wouldn’t be able to afford the cost of supplying that many students with what they need (teachers spend their own money to suf f iciently provide for their st udents). My nieces and nephews can’t get a quality education if each of their classes hold 39 other students. T h is is one of ma ny negative effects that S2
Letters To The Editor will have on our district. Toms River needs real with the marching band I grew up as a student in the Toms River District. Being able to teach in the district I attended as a child has given me a great sense of pride. As a Toms River student, I was provided with textbooks and supplies. I par ticipated in clubs and sports at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Teachers had manageable class sizes, so I always felt like I was well cared for and well taught. I have fond memories of growing up i n t h is d ist r ict. Sa d ly, this will not be the case for thousands of students who will soon be forced t o g row t h roug h la rge class sizes, lack of sports and clubs, lack of technology and curriculum, and a district struggling to stay af loat. Toms R iver suf fered greatly in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. We ha d t he most proper t y damage of any town in the state and, thus, our township’s ratable base is millions less than it was before Sandy. Instead of helping a town in need, S2 will decimate us. The children of Toms River deserve better! Please understand that Toms River Schools are t h e fo u n d a t io n of o u r community. The proposal of S2 will do ir reversible damage to not only our dist rict, but to our town as well. Our schools have some of the lowest per-pupil spending in the state. Our tax levy currently increases each year to attempt to maintain the qualit y of ou r dist r ict. The initial $2.3 million funding cut will hurt our children. The seven year phased in cut of over $20 million will eviscerate our district. Forced 2 percent annual property tax increases will not even come close to replacing the lost funding. If taxes are raised but the quality of education plummets, people will move out of district or out of state.
school f unding refor m. SFRA is a f lawed policy! It takes money to run a h ig h - q u a l it y s c h o ol district. Toms River Reg ion al Schools is cu rrently operating over $40 million below adequacy according to the NJ Depar tment of Education. They say we should be s p e nd i ng $2 ,966 more per child. We spend less. What is our reward for e d u c at i ng ch i ld r e n on a shoestring budget? A budget cut! S2 will cut o u r s t a t e a i d b y ove r $1,300 per child a total of over $20 million annually over the next few years. This will, without a doubt, force our district to cut programs and staff. Toms River’s per pupil costs are already among the lowest in the state. We cannot absorb the scheduled decrease in funding under S2 without doing irreparable harm to our children. It will cause severe cuts in staff, cuts in programs and significant proper t y t a x i ncreases just to maintain a reduced quality of education. Plea se t h i n k about whether you would want a child or relative of yours to attend a district that has been forced to cut hundreds of teachers and programs (among other things), which cont ribu t e t o a h ig h q u a l it y, well-rounded education. Thin k about whether you’d want that child to be one student in a class of 40. Do you think he/ she would get the supp or t a nd at t e nt ion he/ she needs from the sole teacher in the classroom? Would he/she learn all of the state standards when, every day, the teacher has to deal with 40 different personalities of students who come from different backgrounds and different ci rcu mst ances? Do you want that same child to never experience the joy of playing on a team and beating your crosstown rival? Or playing
before an exciting game? Think about some of the t h i ngs you loved most about being a student in the district you attended. Now think about how you would’ve felt if all of the t h i ngs you loved most were taken away by the state. That is what Toms River Students are on the verge of facing. I implore you to rethink this budget cut. Allison Fritz Toms River
Toms River Could – And Should Bring In New Businesses This letter is in response to the article in the February 9, 2019 issue related to lack of exciting retail establishments in Toms River. Toms River Township business administrator, planner, municipal elected officials, and Downtown Improvement District executive director should stop sitting on their hands and need look no further than one town nor th of Toms River: Brick Township! Their retail industry is growing and thriving… constantly adding quality retail businesses in a welcoming environment. Yes, they do have some ‘big box’ stores too, but they also have remodeled their walk-able malls between Chambers Bridge, Cedar Bridge, and Route 70. They consistently partner with their local Chamber of Commerce to ensure a healthy mix of new businesses including restaurants, lifestyle establishments, and medical arts facilities.

State School Aid Figures “Severely Flawed” CAPITOL COMMENTS 10th Legislative District Senator Jim Holzapfel • Assemblyman Greg McGuckin • Assemblyman Dave Wolfe
TR ENTON – Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin (all R-10 th) blasted new cuts to local school aid announced by Governor Murphy yesterday, calling his proposal “severely f lawed.” Their reaction followed the Murphy Administration’s unveiling of state school aid numbers for the upcoming
2019-2020 school year. The 10th District legislators vehemently opposed cuts made to their school districts in the current fiscal year, and vowed to fight the deeper cuts that would be imposed next year under the Governor’s budget proposal. They expressed serious concern that property taxes will be forced higher as school districts
attempt to preser ve the quality of education in their classrooms while accounting for the steep aid cuts imposed by Governor Murphy. “Fai r f u nding for all students in New Jersey is lost on Governor Murphy and his administration,” said Senator Holzapfel. “Continuing this pattern of cuts year after year creates a ripple effect in the community, which impacts everyone from the student to the taxpayer. This is not a fair funding formula, in fact, it is severely flawed and these political games stand to hurt our children
the most.” According to the recently released state aid numbers, school districts within the 10th Legislative District will lose over $5.5 million in State aid next year. The biggest cuts will come at the expense of the Brick and Toms River school districts, which will lose more than $2.7 million each. In total, schools in the 10th District will lose 4.5 percent of their State aid under Governor Murphy’s budget plan. “We just want our school districts, the students they serve, and our local taxpayers to be treated fair-
ly,” added Assemblyman Wolfe. “Brick and Toms River have been fiscally responsible, spending less than the state average to deliver a quality education. Why would Governor Mur phy want to punish efficiency? It doesn’t make sense. We need a better funding formula that is transparent and not artificially exaggerated.” Local school officials have warned that the proposed cuts in state aid will likely lead to the elimination of staff positions, the ter mination of f ull-day kindergarten programs, reduced bussing, and cuts to
New Legislation Would Make Chinese Officials Responsible For Fentanyl Distribution From The Desk Of
Chris Smith WASHINGTON, D.C. Rep. Chris Smith (R-4th), Ranking Member of the House global human rights subcommittee, along with Rep. Thomas Suozzi (DNY) introduced legislation (HR 1542) to bolster efforts to combat the opioid epidemic by cracking down on the production and import of deadly fentanyl made in China. “Chinese-made fentanyl is ending up on our streets and the human cost is real - over 29,000 overdose deaths in 2017 were fentanyl-related,” said Smith, who chaired a subcommittee hearing in September on the threat of Chinese-produced fentanyl. “China is not doing enough
to prevent its production and export to the U.S. My legislation sets up mechanisms by which the U.S. can enforce sanctions against Chinese officials and anyone there involved in this drug trade.” “Synthetic fentanyl, a clear majority of which is produced in China and then exported to the U.S., is killing Americans from all walks of life,” said Congressman Suozzi, lead Democratic cosponsor of the legislation. “Our law enforcement agencies are doing all they can, but the Chinese Government seems to have little interest in stopping the flow of this deadly substance across our borders. This
bipartisan bill will help hold China accountable for its contribution to the opioid epidemic in our country.” The Smith-Suozzi bill mandates the creation of a joint effort by the State and Treasury Departments to identify all Chinese government officials and persons involved in fentanyl production and trafficking into the U.S. The U.S. government could then use sanctions to hold these individuals accountable who would be identified through this joint effort, such as under the Global Magnitsky Act which Smith helped shepherd into law in the 114th Congress. I n September, Smith chaired a hearing of the Subcommittee on identifying and countering the threat of Chinese-produced fentanyl imported into the U.S. Officials from the State Department and Drug Enforcement Agency testified, along with a panel of private

witnesses which included Joseph Coronato, who was the Ocean County Prosecutor at the time. “What my hearing found, through the witness testimony, was that China was
not doing enough to end this drug trade,” Smith said. “Although President Xi Jinping promised to President Trump at the G-20 Summit to crack down on the production of fentanyl, we have
extracurricular activities. “Our office recently demanded full transparency from the Department of Education about their process for calculating our Local Fair Share, but those requests were never answered,” added Assemblyman McGuckin. “It’s appalling that the DOE continues to keep secret their calculations of what they think our property taxpayers should pay. My colleagues and I will work hard to ensure that our school districts have the answers they desperately need to garner their fair share of school aid.”
seen little tangible progress. We cannot allow this matter to become another Chinese empty promise - anyone involved in the production and trafficking of fentanyl must be held accountable.”

Around The Jersey Shore OHI Hosts Screenings For Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
By Kimberly Bosco OCEAN COUNTY – Ocean Health Initiatives (OHI) is hosting a series of educational events and screenings though March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. These programs will be held: • March 18: Toms River Health Center, 301 Lakehurst Rd., 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. • March 20: Little Egg Harbor Health Center, 798 Route 539, Building 3, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.; • March 22: Lakewood Health Center, 101 Second Street, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. In honor of March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, OHI will be offering special screenings and providing important information regarding this disease. These include the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), a noninvasive test that screens for hidden blood in the stool which can be an early sign for can-
cer. The events will also provide Lung Cancer Screenings, Cervical Cancer and Nutrition. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and American Cancer Society recommend that men and women over 45 years of age get regular screenings for this common yet preventable cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US. “It is very important to make our patients and the community aware of what screening resources are available to them,” said Dr. Gilbert Fleischer, Chief Medical Officer at OHI, “Knowing when to get checked for a disease can go a long way towards helping prevent complications down the road and maintain a healthy life style.” For more information, contact Kyle Fannan, marketing development associate, at 732-7191570 or visit ohinj.org.

Young Artist Recital
TOMS RIVER – Reserve your seats now for the April 5 installment of “Bosendorfer Afternoons: Friday Matinee Young Artist Recitals,” featuring pianist Alexander Lo, a native of Washington Township, New Jersey, and a current master’s candidate at the Eastman School of Music. Lo will perform at 1:30 p.m. in Room A203 of the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts. This event is free and open to the public. The Grunin Center is located on the Ocean County College Main Campus, on College Drive in Toms River. Lo, a pianist of tremendous drama and intensity, has received numerous prizes and honors in recent years, including placing second in the Thousand Islands International Piano Competition, and reaching the finals in the 17th Osaka International Music Competition. For his recital at the Grunin Center, Lo has chosen a compelling program that showcases Schumann’s rhapsodic testament to romanticism, the Fantasy Op. 17, as well as the centerpiece of Prokofiev’s trilogy of works known as the war sonatas, the tempestuous Sonata No. 7. This performance will take place in Grunin A203 so as to utilize the 9 ½-foot Bosendorfer Imperial Grand Piano generously on loan to OCC by Mr. Richard Askoff.

Dr. Isidore Kirsh Ph.D., F.A.A.A.
Your Hearing Aid Will Only Last About 4.5 Years. Why?
You should be wearing your hearing aid(s) at least eight hours per day or 2,800 hours per year. Even if you clean your aid every day with a soft toothbrush and visit your hearing healthcare professional twice a year for specialized cleanings, your hearing aid will eventually break down. Repair costs could be as high as $175(conventional hearing aids) or $350(digital hearing aids). A hearing aid may stop working because of (1) wax and debris in the receiver, (2) damaged microphone or amplifier, (3) worn out battery contacts, (4) dead battery, (5)
moisture, or (6) abuse. The daily wear and tear will erode the hearing aid components and they may need replacement. After four or five years of daily hearing aid use (10,000 hours), it may be time replace your hearing instrument with a more advanced system. Dr. Izzy recommends that you consider replacing your hearing instrument if it is greater than four years old, particularly if you have put money into repairing it. Just like an older car that needs repair, it is never quite the same once the mechanic says, “It is fixed.”
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 732-276-1011 or via Web site at gardenstatehearing.com. Expanded Whiting Hours!

Low Dose Aspirin May Help Preeclampsia
By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.
Pregnancy should be a time of joy, but sadly for some women it brings unexpected health challenges. Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs during pregnancy where blood pressure spikes very high and excess protein spills into the urine. It limits the amount of blood flowing through the placenta which put both mother and child at risk for harm, and miscar r iages and fat alities do occu r. Some women are more prone to preeclampsia than others, especially if they come into their pregnancy with hypertension, excessive weight or obesity, or a pre-existing condition of diabetes, kidney disease, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Getting pregnant after age 40 may increase risk, as does in vitro fertilization, donor insemination, or carrying twins or triplets. There are several ways to take care of yourself and reduce complications. Lying on your left side (to take the baby’s weight off major blood vessels) is a wise thing to do. Also, it’s good to consume less processed foods which contain a lot of salt (sodium chloride) which increases blood pressure. Low dose aspirin is another idea that you can talk to our doctor about. A brand new study published in January 2019, in the respected French journal, Presse Medicale found that taking aspirin at bedtime may be helpful in high-risk patients. This is not the first
study to suggest aspirin is useful. Aspirin is a platelet inhibitor that means it works to thin the blood which in turn, helps regulate blood pressure. A low-dose of aspirin blocks Thromboxane A2 (TXA2) from forming in the platelets. Think of thromboxane as glue. When you block the glue formation that makes the platelets less sticky. So one effect from aspirin is to keep the blood thinner and less sticky so then, there is less pressure on the blood vessels. Too much aspirin will cause excessive thinning of the blood and easy bruising and bleeding. Probiotics may help with preeclampsia too. There is a protective effect of Lactobacillus probiotics, and this is interesting because a person’s gut microbiome directly impacts their thyroid hormone levels. Healthy gut status improves thyroid hormone conversion, and that in turn improves fertility. But more importantly, there is an anti-inflammatory effect from probiotics and a new study found that lactobacillus could help the improve odds of carrying full term if you have preeclampsia. Cortisol to cortisone levels matter too. If this topic interests you, please sign up for my free newsletter at suzycohen. com and I’ll email you the information. In the meantime, reduce your stress as much as possible because high cortisol is harmful if you have preeclampsia. For more information visit preeclampsia. org

County Begins Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program In Lakewood
By Kimberly Bosco TOMS RIVER – Lakewood Township is first up in Ocean County’s 30th year of the Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program. “This program has had a very successful run for 30 years. With the staff at Solid
Waste Management and our contractors we have been able to keep thousands and thousands of pounds of hazardous materials out of our parks, our open spaces and our homes and disposed of safely and properly,” said Freeholder Gary Quinn, who serves as liaison to the county’s recycling program and
Department of Solid Waste Management. In 2018, Ocean County collected 352,522 pounds, of household hazardous waste, at a cost of $164,904. For 2019, the program will run from March to June at the following locations: • March 31, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Lake-
wood Public Works Yard • May 4, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Toms River Township Public Works Garage, 1672 Church Road • June 1, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Stafford Township Public Works Garage, 320 Haywood Road These three spring dates will be serviced by Radiac Environmental Services at a cost of almost 50 cents a pound, stated officials. The county anticipates announcing additional dates in early summer. “We work to make certain this program is accessible to our residents,” Quinn said. “It is held in towns, both large and small, and citizens in any Ocean County town can attend any site. Easy accessibility with our residents attending any location is one of the keys to the success of this program.” The Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program is free, but registration is required. To register for the Lakewood collection site, call 732-367-0802. For Toms River collection, call 732-506-5047. For the Stafford collection site, call 609-978-0913. “Spring is the time of year when people are cleaning out garages, basements and attics and seasonal homes are being reopened and prepared for summer,” said Ocean County Freeholder Director Virginia E. Haines. “We encourage our residents to use this free program to make certain chemicals, cleaners, solvents and other items we use around the house are disposed of properly.” Those interested should note what materials are acceptable: paints, thinners, boat paints, solvents, pool chemicals, pesticides and herbicides, aerosol cans, auto products, toilet and drain cleaners, silver polishes, oven cleaners, photographic chemicals, rug and upholstery cleaners, polishes and bleaches, waste oil and used gasoline. The maximum amount residents can drop off at a collection site is 200 pounds of dry material and 20 gallons of liquid. No containers over five gallons will be accepted. “Our residents should check with us or their local recycling center to determine what is accepted year-round eliminating the need to store potentially hazardous items in their home,” Quinn said.

Inside The Law Let’s Start Holding Insurance Companies Responsible For Their Willingness To Delay, Deny And Defend
Robert C. Shea Esq.
By: Michael J. Deem, Esq. and Robert C. Shea, Esq. of R.C. Shea & Associates
Michael J. Deem
Michael J. Deem, Esq, of R.C. Shea & Associates is a member of the New Jersey Association for Justice Board of Governors. NJAJ and R.C. Shea & Associates strongly support A-4293, a bill which protects insurance consumers from unreasonable delays in the payment or denials of legitimate claims. When someone buys an insurance policy, that person has a simple expectation - which is that the insurance provider will be there in their customer’s time of need. Too often, however, insurers seek to avoid paying claims in order to protect their bottom lines. We are very concerned about the rising trend of insurance companies acting in bad faith by unreasonably delaying or denying payment that is justly due. This is practice is unfair and wrong. Insurers should have their customers, not their shareholders be their highest priority. A-4293 recognizes this obvious injustice and remedies it by allowing those filing claims the first-party right to sue their insurance companies for bad faith if and when those companies fail to properly settle claims. Insurance companies have civil and criminal remedies available to hold people accountable if they commit insurance fraud. They have the Office of Insurance Fraud as an arm of state government to investigate and prosecute insurance fraud when the companies are victim. But, the honest consumer does not now have a remedy against an insurance company when a valid claim is denied or delayed. This bill levels the playing field so consumers are protected when they are the victim of insurance fraud. Whether it is for claims relating to declared disasters or automobile coverage that they are required by the State of New Jersey to purchase, the first-party right to sue levels the proverbial playing field. It allows consumers to hold powerful insurance companies accountable for delaying or denying just payment to their customers.

Automobile insurance is perhaps the only product that people are required to purchase but are then forced to seek permission in order to use it. Additionally, the provider of that insurance product is then permitted to tell the consumer that he or she cannot use a product that they have already purchased. A-4293 corrects this situation. This bill seeks recognition of that fact that insurance companies should be held to account when the fail to act in good faith. This is a simple expectation that every consumer has when they choose to do business with any company. The fact that auto insurance consumers are required by law to purchase this service and that they are putting the wellbeing of themselves and their loved one in the hands of the insurance companies only increases the stakes. In far too many cases, insurance companies delay, deny and defend claims. This dishonest practice forces their customers to fight for needed medical care, treatment for injuries or funds to repair damaged property. When an insurance company unjustly delays or denies the payment of legitimate claims, consumers must have the right to go to court. Presently, consumers in this state have no practical remedy if their insurance company unreasonably delays or refuses payment on a claim. Insurance customers are entitled to have their claims resolved in a fair and equitable manner without unreasonable delay; this is why they need the ability to seek redress when an insurance company acts in bad faith. We strongly encourage our readers to contact their Legislature and ask him/her to pass A-4293 which would provide much needed insurance consumer protection. R.C. Shea & Associates has form letters and e-mail available should you require assistance with your effort to contact your Legislature. Please do not hesitate to call us 732-505-1212.

TRENTON – New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher today announced the 2019 Jersey Fresh Farm to School Recognition and Award program to find the top school in the state participating in Farm to School activities.

Applications are now available for the Jersey Fresh Farm to School Recognition and Award program at surveymonkey. com/r/2019F2SRecognition. The deadline to complete and submit the application is May 31, 2019. One exemplary school that provides the most meaningful Farm to School overview will be presented with the “Best in New Jersey Farm to School Award” during Jersey Fresh Farm to School Week September 23-27, 2019 “We’ve witnessed some amazing Farm to School programs these past few years,” Secretary Fisher said. “We have more than 200 schools that have incorporated various aspects of Farm to School. Our goal is to encourage students to make healthier food choices, learn about New Jersey agriculture and develop an appreciation for where their food comes from.”
10th LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT Senator
Schools that meet the criteria in the application will be acknowledged for their Farm to School efforts by receiving a Jersey Fresh Farm to School promotional materials kit, including a Jersey Fresh Farm to School banner, aprons, pencils, seasonality charts, Jersey Tastes flyers and media templates to announce this recognition.

Social Security Opens Up New Online Portal For New Jersey Residents
By Kimberly Bosco New Jersey residents will now have easier, quicker access to social security services with the Social Security Administration’s new portal. The Social Security portal can be found at socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. According to Nancy A. Berryhill, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, residents can use the portal for Social Security number (SSN) card replacement requests from the comfort of their own home. “I’m pleased to offer the residents of New Jersey the added convenience of replacing a Social Security card through the my Social Security portal,” Acting Commissioner Berryhill said. “We will continue to work on innovative initiatives to provide people with safe, secure and convenient options for doing business with us online or in person.” Not only this, but current Social Security beneficiaries will be able to manage their account on the site as well; they can change an address, adjust direct deposit, obtain
a benefit verification letter, or request a replacement SSA-1099. New Jersey and the District of Columbia are the first places to have this program available. The SSA plans to gradually roll out this service, expanding it to other states throughout 2019. According to the SSA, the portal will mean shorter wait times in the more than 1,200 Social Security offices across the country and more time for staff to work with customers who have extensive service needs. If you are a US citizen 18 years of age or older, and a resident of New Jersey, you can request a replacement SSN card online through the portal by creating an account. You must have a US mailing address, not require a change to your record (such as a name change), and have a valid driver’s license or state identification card. Not to worry, the Social Security portal is a secure site for social security services! Almost 41 million people have already begun using their accounts. In addition to SSN card replacements, Medicare beneficiaries can use the portal to request a replacement Medicare card. Those still in the workforce can use the portal to verify their earnings history and obtain estimates of future benefits by looking at their Social Security Statement online. For more information on the service, visit socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber.

Dear Joel Missing My Grandchildren
Dear Joel, I get my day started by listening to you on Preferred Company. I have a question and I think that you would be able to give me some meaningful advice on how to deal with this situation. My son is a very successful project manager for Amazon and he lives in Seattle. He and his wife have three beautiful little girls but I almost never get to see them because they live so far away and my husband refuses to ﬂy. When I try and talk to my husband about ﬂying out to Washington to see them, he ﬂat out refuses without giving it a thought, and sometimes it even leads to a bigger argument. We haven’t seen our grandchildren in almost six months, and I miss them very much. My son tries to come here once a year, but he is always very busy. How can I approach my husband and talk with him, civilly, about this? Sincerely, Gretchen
Yo u r s o n sounds like he is on the right path in life, and that is something to be optimistic about. We hear so many horror stories nowadays about people who are just not on the right path in life, so it is nice to hear that your son is married with children and has a stable job. As for your husband not wanting to fly have you asked him why? Flying is a real fear among many people out there. Have you thought that maybe your husband is afraid of flying but does not want to admit it? Have you flown anywhere else recently? I highly doubt that he just flat out does not want to see his grandchildren – so there has to be a bigger issue. You can also consider taking a train. While it does take much longer, there are routes that Amtrak provides that could get you to Washington. I hope this helps. Joel
Dear Gretchen, First off, thank you for being a regular listener to Preferred Company. We enjoy spending our morning with you as much as you do spending it with us.

What is Spinal Stenosis? By: Joe Scrudato, PTA
diagnosis we frequently see in our physical therapy clinics associated with back and neck pain is spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is a condition resulting in the narrowing or pinching of the spinal cord that causes pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that flow through it. Spinal stenosis is most commonly found in individuals 45 years of age and older, however, can be found in the younger population as well. Some cases of spinal stenosis may also be congenital, which means it is present at birth. Spinal stenosis can occur throughout the spinal cord ranging
from the cervical spine to the lumbar spine. However, thoracic stenosis is very uncommon because there is very little movement of these vertebrae, resulting in a lower chance of degeneration. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF SPINAL STENOSIS Overall, spinal stenosis symptoms are often characterized as: • Developing slowly over time, or slow onset • The pain you feel is not constant, or some describe it as coming and going. • Occurring during certain activities (such as walking for lumbar stenosis) and/or positions (such as standing upright for lumbar stenosis) • The pain is relieved by rest (sitting or lying down) and/or any flexed forward position. There are many cases involving spinal stenosis where the person does not present with any symptoms at all. However, more times than not, a person will show signs and symptoms of spinal stenosis which differ from one region of the spine to the other. More specifically, signs and symptoms
for the cervical spine can be weakness, and or numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, as well as local pain in the neck. In lumbar stenosis, the spinal nerves become compressed and can produce symptoms of sciatica, such as numbness and tingling, and or pain radiating into the buttock and legs.
condition, but it can be treated. If you suffer from neck or low back pain, you should talk to your physician or make an appointment with an orthopedist to be properly evaluated. You and your physician should come up with a treatment plan that is safe and suitable for you.
CAN SPINAL STENOSIS BE TREATED? The answer is, yes, spinal stenosis can be treated with several different methods, most of which do not require surgery. Courses of treatment include Physical Therapy, activity modification, epidural injections, and medication. Physical Therapy – A physical therapy program consisting of strengthening, stretching, modalities, and manual work from a licensed therapist is a great course of treatment to decrease or eliminate pain. Activity Modification - Patients are usually counseled to avoid activities that worsen their spinal stenosis symptoms. For lumbar stenosis patients, certain positions are more comfortable such as flexed positions. Example would be getting relief when leaning over onto a shopping cart at the grocery store. Epidural Injections – An epidural injection is a shot of cortisone into epidural space which can temporarily relieve symptoms of spinal stenosis. This procedure would be performed by a licensed physician. Medications – There are several medications that can help alleviate some of the pain that is caused by spinal stenosis, however it is always recommended that you consult with your physician prior to taking any medications. Unfortunately not all cases of spinal stenosis are cured or managed with non-invasive treatments. In some cases an orthopedic surgeon will have to perform surgery to decrease the compression of the nerves that exit the vertebrae. This course of treatment is usually done as a last resort if the non-invasive courses of treatment have failed. Spinal stenosis can be a very painful and debilitating

Omarr’s Astrological Forecast For the week of Mar 16 - Mar 22 By Jeraldine Saunders
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may realize that you need to be more organized. A strict budget might be the only way to keep money in your pocket in the week to come. Be gracious if someone you talk to does not come across as logical. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Spartan ideals might spar with your love of luxury. Don’t buy something that doesn’t make fiscal sense. Handle your finances with efficiency this week but manage your relationships with tender loving care. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Harness your energies and make headway in the week ahead. If you display your willingness to be a team player your work will go faster, and co-workers may become friends. Someone may even find you fascinating. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A minor change can boost your earning power. By focusing on minor tasks, you may end up with large achievements. Your partner’s passion for success may inspire you to try harder and to perform at your peak. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Ride high in the sky. Share something of yourself and people will learn that you are trustworthy. Discuss your views and improve the quality of your life by widening your circle of friends in the upcoming week. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work better and smarter in the week ahead. Once you get up to speed there won’t be time to worry about what you don’t have and will only be able to focus on making your plans a reality and your dreams come true.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Play fair with the other players on your playground. What appears to be an opportunity for advancement at the workplace could be inflated. Focus on being kind, forgiving and tolerant as this week unfolds. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Implement people-pleasing strategies. As this week unfolds you might meet a business contact who becomes a lifelong ally, or you could become involved with a group of people with similar ideals and aims. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fair weather friends may offer assurances and promise to help you achieve them but might offer excuses when the going gets tough. In the week ahead push up your shirtsleeves and focus on making money. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Go from surviving to thriving. Your passions might motivate you to excel and your desires can be used for a higher purpose in the week ahead. Put your most crucial plans into motion and make dreams come true. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It is better to take the lead then to wait for someone else to lead the way. You may spend too much time socializing when you should be working. In the upcoming week you may be prompted to donate to charities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Pass by the seat of your pants. Too much self-confidence might lead to a costly mistake in the week ahead. You might take someone’s approval for granted or ask for a favor from an inappropriate person.

PA N - R O A S T E D C H I C K E N W I T H G A R L I C AND HERBS, TWO-MUSTARD SAUCE, AND CARAMELIZED CIPOLLINI ONIONS Serves 4 to 6 For the chicken with garlic and herbs: 4 pounds (2 kg) bone-in chicken pieces Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper All-purpose flour, for dusting 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 2 sprigs fresh rosemary 2 sprigs fresh thyme 8 garlic cloves, unpeeled 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon leaves For the two-mustard sauce: Mustard Sauce 1/2 cup port wine or fruity red wine such as Zinfandel or Merlot 1/2 cup cream 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C). Meanwhile, start preparing the chicken for the first stage of the cooking on the stovetop. Season the chicken pieces all over with salt and pepper, and dust them all over with flour. Set aside. In an ovenproof saute pan large enough to hold all the pieces in a single layer, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat on the stovetop. Add the chicken pieces skin side down and tuck in 1 rosemary sprig, 1 thyme sprig and 4 garlic cloves among them. Cook undisturbed until the skin has turned deep golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. With tongs, turn the chicken pieces over. Tuck in the remaining rosemary, thyme and garlic. Continue cooking until the other side has browned, another 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully transfer the pan to the preheated oven. Continue cooking until the juices run clear when the thickest part of a thick is pierced with a skewer, about 15 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken pieces
to a heated platter and cover with foil to keep warm while you prepare the sauce. For the sauce, remove and discard the herbs and garlic cloves and carefully pour off excess oil from the pan. Place the pan over medium-high heat and carefully add the port wine or red wine, stirring and scraping with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits. Continue boiling the wine until it has reduced in volume by half, about 5 minutes. While stirring continuously with a wire whisk, pour in the cream and bring the liquid back to a boil. Turn off the heat and whisk in the two mustards. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, leave the chicken on the platter or transfer to individual serving plates. Spoon the mustard sauce over the chicken, and distribute the caramelized cipollini onions (recipe follows) around the pieces. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and tarragon, and serve immediately. CARAMELIZED CIPOLLINI ONIONS Serves 4 to 6 3/4 pound cipollini onions, peeled 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 2 tablespoons sugar Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil Cut each onion in half by standing it on its side and slicing it through its widest point. With 1 tablespoon of the butter, coat the bottom of a stainless-steel saute pan large enough to hold all the onion halves cut sides down. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sugar evenly over the butter and place all the onion halves cut sides down in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Put the pan over high heat and dot the remaining butter evenly around the onions. Cook until the undersides of the onions are a light to medium caramel brown color, 5 to 7 minutes. With a narrow spatula, turn the onions over and continue cooking until their other sides are lightly browned, about 5 minutes longer.
