–Photo courtesy Berkeley Township Megan Franzoso and her uncle Kevin Geoghegan thanked the township for their help. By Chris Lundy BERKELEY – When a medical emergency lays you low, you need to be able to dedicate all your time and energy to getting better. It helps when your town has your back. Megan Franzoso, who worked for the town’s first aid squad,

suffered a medical emergency which wiped her out last year. She went into cardiac arrest and was on life support for two weeks. But at the latest Berkeley Township Council meeting, she was standing there to thank the town for their help.

She is now going to Bancroft NeuroRehab regularly and is making progress, her family said. She didn’t do much of the talking, since she’s still on the mend. Her uncle Kevin Geoghegan spoke on behalf of the family, and read a letter (Help - See Page 4)

Judge Apologizes For Courtroom Comments

By Chris Lundy TRENTON – An attorney representing a local judge said he was remorseful and would accept any discipline handed down for inappropriate comments he made. Superior Court Judge John F. Russo, former mayor of Toms River, is facing suspension without pay for several issues of misconduct,

including asking a rape victim if she tried to keep her legs closed. Amelia Carolla, the attorney representing him before the New Jersey Supreme Court on July 9, said that it was not his intention to imply that the rape was the victim’s fault. However, he has learned that his intentions do not matter, and that it is the effects of his words on

those who hear them that are important. A re cord i ng ha d caught him later say to his staff “What I lack in handwriting skills, I am the master of on the record being able to talk about sex acts with a straight face.” Russo had claimed that his comments were to educate his law clerk on how to handle complex domestic violence cases.

At the Supreme Court, his attorney was questioned about what part of his comments were supposed to be educational. One justice asked “From the dialogue, it sounds like the judge and everyone was yucking it up. Am I wrong?” The judges asked whether it was ap propriate that Russo seemed to indicate that (Judge - See Page 5)

By Chris Lundy TOMS RIVER – A law increasing minimum wages went into effect July 1, and will top out at $15 an hour for most wage earners in 2024. Several local businesses said they’ll be able to shoulder the additional cost, but mostly because they don’t have too many employees. Frank Kenny from Ken’s Hardware in Toms River has been a family-run business since his father opened up shop 42 years ago. “We’ve always paid our employees more than minimum wage because we want to keep them here,” he said. “This $15 minimum wage is not going to affect me.” At the time of the interview, the store had eight full time workers and four part time, not including Kenny and his brother. He said he wasn’t concerned about employees leaving for better paying jobs, because there are some that have been here a long time. The owner of Perfect Swing Golf in Toms River, Mike Hovance, said he is only unaffected by it as he has a very small number of employees. A few years ago, when they were located in Lakewood, they had a driving range with nine employees. Many of them were pensioners with didn’t mind making $8-10 an hour. If he would have had to pay them almost twice as much, it would have crippled the business. “We were at the highest end of what we could charge our customers anyway,” he said. “I couldn’t raise the prices anymore. People would stop coming.” Further, it wouldn’t have helped his workers that much. There are a lot of retirees working in the golf industry. Those retirees just enjoyed coming out to the range, talking shop, and getting perks of working for a range. “I understand people needing more money, but then you are charging more for goods and services,” he said. The minimum wage increase is “long overdue,” said Ed Iannone, owner of Steve’s Comic Relief in Toms River. However, “it’s just going to put a lot of stress on mom and pop shops (Wage Increase - See Page 5)

Continued From Page 1 from her mother, Deborah Franzoso. “When Megan fell ill, your town rallied behind her, allowing township employees to donate sick time. Chief Karin DiMichele, Berkeley Township PBA, and EMT Unit held several fundraisers, with which several of you attended,” he said to the mayor and council. The family took a moment to give additional thanks to the police chief, who also facilitated another fundraiser with the Manchester and Toms River police departments. “Chief Karin Di Michele also responded to the hospital the night Megan went into cardiac arrest, to be there for her as well as a support for our family. There are no words to describe how grateful we are to her,” they said. Various township employees helped the family navigate through the regulations to make sure that she would be taken care of. They highlighted Melanie Parks for helping Megan’s uncle with the paperwork and providing a contact in human resources. That contact, Tamara Goble, helped with

all her insurance paperwork so she could start COBRA. “Every step of our journey with Megan has been made much easier because of these township employees. They are to be commended. We can’t thank them enough,” they said. “We are proud that Megan worked for a great town called Berkeley Township.” Franzoso’s family has had a long-time dedication to helping others. Going all the way back to grandparents, the family has a history of being lifesavers. At the time of her incident, she worked for three squads - as a full-time emergency medical technician for Berkeley Township and part-time for the Tri-Boro and Silverton first aid squads. In a previous interview, Deborah Franzoso told The Berkeley Times that beta blockers Megan had been taking for a rapid heart rate had contributed to a seizure and cardiac arrest. It turned out she was allergic to them. Another uncle, Brian Geoghegan, set up a GoFundMe page for her shortly after the accident. As of this printing, more than $32,000 of the $75,000 has been raised. If you would like to donate, go to gofundme. com/megan039s-first-aid#.

Wage Increase:

Continued From Page 1 that employ part-time seasonal help. The first several years, I will be able to absorb without any issues. Going into the third, fourth and fifth years, I, like most other people running small operations, will more than likely will cut back on part time help.” The hourly pay is only one piece of the puzzle, he said. There’s another side of it that the state is not talking about, and that’s the ancillary costs that this will bring. Worker’s comp is tied to payroll, so that will increase accordingly. “I’ll also be paying toward Social Security because as an employer I’m picking up 50 percent of employee Social Security,” he said. Five years down the road, he expects to see part time work vanish because small businesses can’t bring in enough profit to afford to pay them. Alizar N. Zorojew, the executive director of the Downtown Toms River Business Improvement District, said he can see both sides of the issue. On one hand, people deserve a livable wage. On the other hand, it’s another challenge for small businesses. “Private businesses could be more likely to automate or to ask more of employees,” he predicted. He expects that – even without the legislation - the market would trend toward paying employees more to attract and retain better workers. If it had happened naturally it would have gone more smoothly. Fortunately, the seasonal employees are on a different pay scale, said Lori Pepenella, Chief Executive Officer of the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce. Many businesses in this region rely on seasonal help. The chamber had advocated for a gentler phase in for seasonal employees. “It gives us more time before it actually


Continued From Page 1 since the victim was an exotic dancer she should have experience in fending off unwanted sexual advances. Chief Justice Stuart Rabner had a line of questioning about whether these comments would shade future cases. He asked if future domestic violence or sexual assault victims would feel like they got fair treatment in his courtroom, or if the general public could still feel confidence in the court. Carolla said that his behavior now – understanding the damage caused and accepting any punishment – shows that he is serious in his position as judge and would hold himself up to higher standards. When the audio was played back for Russo, “As soon as he heard it, he was very embarrassed and upset,” she said. Russo’s behavior has been scrutinized recently, including being submitted to a mental health evaluation and having a sexual harassment suit filed against him.

The Berkeley Times, July 13, 2019, Page 5 hits,” she said. While the businesses understand the reasoning behind the increase, the chamber has been assisting them in preparing themselves for the increased costs. “When you’re not having a full time staff, you’re retraining every year,” she said. So, the build-up in pay will keep trained employees coming back. What Will The Increases Look Like? The language of the bill is as follows: “The bill provides that, except for certain workers specified by the bill, the general minimum wage rate will be increased to $10 per hour on July 1, 2019, to $11 per hour on January 1, 2020, followed by $1 increases each year until the rate reaches a level of $15.00 per hour in 2024.” Employers with less than six employees, or seasonal non-tipped employees, would have this instead: “The minimum wage rate will be increased to $10.30 per hour on January 1, 2020, and then increased each year from 2021 to 2025 by eighty cents, and then increased in 2026 by seventy cents so that it reaches a level of $15 per hour in 2026, followed by further increases from 2027 to 2028 as needed to have these employees provided the same minimum wage rate as the general minimum wage rate in 2028.” Farm laborers would have yet another rate: “the rate will be increased to $10.30 on January 1, 2020, $10.90 on January 1, 2022, and increased by eighty cents in 2023, and eighty cents in 2024 so that the rate will be $12.50.” At this time, the commissioner and the Secretary of Agriculture would evaluate to see if more increases are warranted. For workers who are tipped, employers will receive credit for tips against the hourly minimum wage rate the employer pays, as follows: “from January 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019, $6.72; after June 30, 2019 and before January 1, 2020, $7.37; during 2020, 2021 and 2022, $7.87; during 2023, $8.87; and during 2024 and subsequent years, $9.87.”

He had filed a lawsuit against two judges claiming that they were discriminating against him because he has a disabled son. This issue was also brought up in the Supreme Court. According to the discussion, there was a hearing regarding Russo’s adult son with disabilities. The date of the hearing had changed and he needed to take a day off from a busy schedule to attend it. He had contacted Jill Vito, manager of Ocean County’s family court, and asked her to speak to her equal in Burlington to try to arrange for his day off. Late last year, Rabner had ordered Russo to work in Burlington County instead of Ocean, where he was overseeing civil matters rather than criminal. “He understands the impact his words had on others,” Carolla said. “Today he is not making excuses. He did not intend to hurt others.” Rabner said the court would take the matter into advisement. The timeline for the court’s decision has not yet been set.

Disabled Veterans Will Not Pay Beach Buggy Permit Fees CAPITOL COMMENTS 9th Legislative District Senator Christopher J. Connors • Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf • Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove

TRENTON – The New Jersey Senate has passed legislation sponsored by District 9 legislators to exempt an eligible disabled veteran

from any fee to obtain, replace, or renew a permit to operate a beach buggy. The legislation was introduced by Senator Chris-

topher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove at the request of a constituent, who is a disabled veteran. The 9th District Delegation issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s passage of their veterans-related initiative, S-1703: “Exempting disabled veterans from paying for beach buggy permits is a small,

yet meaningful gesture of appreciation to these brave individuals in recognition of their service and sacrifice for our nation. “Certainly, we’re pleased that our veterans’ proposal passed the Senate with unanimous and bipartisan support. On behalf of the disabled veterans that would benefit from this effort, we hope that the Assembly follows the Senate’s lead by

passing this legislation as soon as possible.” S-1703 would prohibit both the state and municipalities from imposing beach buggy permit fees on disabled veterans. According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, there are approximately 57,000 veterans residing in New Jersey who received disability compensation due to a service-con-

nected condition. The identical companion measure, A-715, is awaiting action by the Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee. Members of the 9th District Delegation serve on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veterans Affairs Committees to more effectively represent their constituency, which includes a significant number of veterans.

Medicare and Medicare Advantage. “Medicare is one of the most important and impactful programs for our seniors, and it needs to be protected,” said Congressman Kim. “With nearly a third of New Jersey residents in Burlington and Ocean Counties eligible, this is a program we must all be committed to preserving for future generations.” Congressman Kim’s roundtable comes following recent reports that prescription drug

prices have risen by 10.5 percent over the past six months, five times the rate of inflation. Those reports show that more than 3,400 drugs have increased in price, with 41 drugs more than doubling in price over the same period of time. “The rising costs of prescription drugs places a financial burden with seniors like me in Ocean County,” said Debra Levinson, a senior from Ocean County. “It is important that Congress takes

actions to protect seniors like myself from rising costs and to protect Medicare for.” Congressman Kim has called for Medicare to have the ability to negotiate prescription drug costs for seniors, an ability currently utilized by the Department of Veterans Affairs to lower the price of drugs. He is currently a co-sponsor of the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Act and the Medicare Negotiation and Competitive Licensing Act.

According to the American Heart Association, approximately 75 million American adults (32%) have high blood pressure. About one in three American adults has “prehypertension,” which is blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal but not yet in the high blood pressure range. Yet, only about half (54%) of people with high blood pressure have their condition under control. Treatment begins with a diagnosis that is usually made during a routine health exam. For those who skip their annual exams, it is quite possible that an eye exam may lead to the important diagnosis. Over time, high blood pressure renders tiny blood vessels in the eyes more vulnerable to blood leakage, which is revealed by a comprehensive eye exam. Untreated high blood pressure can also affect your eyesight and lead to eye disease. Managing blood pressure is also the only way to treat hypertensive retinopathy, which is blurred vision or the complete loss of sight. At SUSSKIND & ALMALLAH EYE ASSOCIATES, our experienced physicians and knowledgeable staff are dedicated to providing you with the very best in patient care, focusing on Lasik, cataract surgery, and premium intraocular lens implants, diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, dry eye syndrome, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, pediatric ophthalmology, and total eye care.

R.C. Shea & Assoc.

Inside The Law The New Jersey Paid Sick Leave Act Robert C. Shea Esq. By: Michael J. Deem, Esq. and Robert C. Shea, Esq. of R.C. Shea & 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? 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 Michael J. Deem 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.

Around The Jersey Shore People For Progress Presents “Securing Your Vote”

SHREWSBURY – People For Progress is pleased to host Andrew Appel, Ph.D. at the Hamilton Free Public Library in Hamilton, NJ on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 7 p.m. Dr. Appel will discuss New Jersey’s plans to purchase new voting machines and take an in-depth look at the future of election security in the Garden State and what residents can do about it. Appel is the Eugene Higgins Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University, and an internationally recognized expert on voting systems and election security. After the 2016 presidential election, legislation mandating the purchase of new voting machine systems was introduced in Trenton. Unfortunately, according to Dr. Appel, the system currently being proposed for purchase is far from the best option and New Jersey’s lawmakers and election officials are making decisions based on promotional information

from vendors instead of systems experts. With the 2020 election looming, it is critical that both decision makers in Trenton and voters throughout the state be well-informed on matters of election security. “[In New Jersey], we have delegated our representation to whomever was the last to install a computer program in…[our voting] machines, whether legitimately or illegitimately. Surely that’s not what the founders intended by ‘representative democracy.’,” said Appel. The event is free and open to the public. People For Progress is a grassroots political organization based in central New Jersey. Our goal is to establish a more open, transparent and accountable election system that includes convention and ballot reform. Through education and advocacy, we strive to ensure greater civic engagement, higher voter satisfaction and a more democratic outcome in our elections.

Tips For Hearing In Noisy Situations

Those without hearing loss can have problems hearing at parties, particularly if there is background noise. Having a hearing loss makes it even harder to understand speech when other noises are present. Here are some strategies to maximize your ability to communicate with others: 1. In restaurants. Choose a table off to one side or in the corner of the restaurant. It is more difficult to hear in the middle of a restaurant. 2. In meetings or lectures. Normally, it is best to sit in front of, but not too close to, the speaker. Some lecture halls have assisted listening devices you can borrow.

3. Face the speaker. Move closer to the person you want to hear and watch his/her lips. 4. Listen to one person. Don’t try to listen to the whole group and pick out multiple conversations simultaneously. It just won’t work. 5. Help from the speaker. It is important to speak slowly and clearly. When asked to repeat, say it again more clearly or rephrase what you have already said. 6. Regular check-ups. Have your hearing aid cleaned and checked every six months. An adjustment may improve your ability to understand in groups.

Mullein Has 5 Tremendous Medicinal Benefits

By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.

Mullein is known botanically as Verbascum thapus. It has soft fuzzy leaves as well as gorgeous yellow flowers towering at the top. Mullein is misunderstood and assumed to be an unwelcome weed but it simply isn’t true. Mullein has many generous offerings for us, and the medicinal properties rival that of many other so-called weeds like stinging nettle, plantain, Japanese Knotweed (resveratrol) and yarrow. Your grandma might have even steeped the leaves of mullein to make you a cough syrup or hot tea which is great for colds and flu. This natural remedy has a strong anti-viral effect of mullein. Harvesting mullein is pretty easy, I just recommend that you get it from a trusted source where it was grown in nice, clean soil and preferably organically. You can buy the dried herb on Amazon. 5 Benefits of Mullein Root 1. Relieve Ear Aches. Thanks to mullein’s strong anti-inflammatory effect, it can help with ear aches and infections for humans, and possibly dogs. If you browse health food stores and e-tailers, you’ll find mullein and mullein/garlic ear drops. 2. Increase Lymph Flow. Mullein may be useful for bruises and skin infections. Some people take the large leaves and utilize them as compresses. The leaves can be picked off, and steeped gently and then when cool, applied directly on to the bruise. This reduces inflammation and pain. Likewise, an easier remedy is to purchase a cream, tincture, supplement or tea and use (or ingest) as directed according

to your package. 3. May Reduce Goiter. Mullein is a strong anti-inflammatory and has been studied for its effect in reducing glandular inflammation of the thyroid. Mullein can be extremely useful in some cases but not all, as it may help reduce goiter. Another popular supplement for goiter is iodine-iodide. Check with your doctor, but mullein dietary supplements may be useful for this. Furthermore, the beneficial compounds of mullein can be mixed into jojoba or apricot oil and rubbed onto the thyroid gland area (goiter area). FYI, another popular supplement for goiter is Iodine. 4. Helps Breathing. Leaves from mullein are helpful with lung congestion and mucus production. It appears to work by dilating capillaries and therefore increasing circulation. This helps relieve stagnancy and congestion making it an interesting adjunctive remedy to people with COPD, bronchitis, asthma and dry coughs. 5. Soothe Skin, Cold Sores and Hemorrhoids. Mullein leaves can benefit your skin and be used as a compress for external hemorrhoids, cold sores and skin wounds. One way to make use of this benefit is to make tea with a commercial tea bag or the dried herb itself. Cool the steeped liquid and apply directly to the site. I have a more comprehensive version of this article which includes a DIY recipe for a skin (hemorrhoidal) cream as well as my Mullein Elderberry Tea recipe. I’ll email you this longer, exclusive article if you sign up for my free newsletter at

Medical Marijuana Bill Signed By Governor

By Chris Lundy FREEHOLD – Jake Honig’s Law, which expands medical marijuana use in the state, was signed into law by Gov. Phil Murphy. The bill was named after a young boy from Howell nicknamed “The Tank” who fought a losing battle with brain cancer. His family became strong advocates of medical marijuana since it alleviated his pain. The problem was that New Jersey’s strict law prevented the family from getting more than two ounces a month of it for someone his age. The governor Tweeted “Today I was proud to sign the Jake Honig Compassionate Use Medical Cannabis Act into law, honoring Jake The Tank’s life by expanding medical marijuana access for patients. We must continue to expand access to this life-changing medical treatment.” The Facebook page dedicated to Jake praised the bill: “Thank you to everyone who took part in making this one of the strongest medical marijuana bills in the country. We are proud to be part of a bill that will directly impact tens of thousands of patients.” They listed the parameters of the bill: • Patients will be able to receive 3 ounces per month, which may be increased again in

18 months. • Patients with life-threatening illness will have no limits. “Fear of running out of medicine is over.” • Patients can receive a 12-month prescription for enough medicine to last a year, increased from the current 90-day allotment. • Alternative Treatment Centers can now make home delivery of medical cannabis. • Tax on medical cannabis will be decreased every year and completely eliminated by 2022. The medical component was one of three marijuana-related bills that were being discussed in Trenton. One would legalize recreational use of the drug. Another would expunge people’s records of some marijuana possession charges. At one point, they were banded together. Critics of Murphy said the three bills were connected because the recreational bill would not have enough votes without the more popular medicinal and expungement bills connected to it. According to a representative for the state Democrats, the recreational bill did not get posted because there are not enough votes. The expungement bill was approved by the legislature and is awaiting the governor’s signature.

Omarr’s Astrological Forecast For the week of june 13 - july 19

By Jeraldine Saunders

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your social instincts are energized, and your hormones may be flowing strongly. Because you feel attractive it is easy to attract others. Restrain your impulses; avoid making crucial changes in the week ahead. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Everything may go smoothly when you are with your tribe. It could require more patience to spend time with those of differing viewpoints. Avoid arguments and overreacting to criticism in the week ahead. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You may have a shorter than usual attention span but be sure to pay bills and watch overspending on non-essentials. In the week ahead you may need to discipline yourself to stay focused on responsibilities. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Starting something new might take more patience than you’d like. As this week unfolds you might find it difficult to move forward with projects because plans seem to run into roadblocks at every turn. Hold off on launching new schemes. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be patient and persistent, even if frustrations and delays crop up in your work in the week ahead. Get plenty of sleep so you can handle your responsibilities and any crises that erupt. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It could be a challenge to concentrate in the upcoming week especially if there is too much going on. If your creative energies hit a brick wall, hit up your favorite someone for some good ideas.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You could be possessive of a loved one’s affections and feel hurt if someone else earns their admiration. Practice self-validation and remember love can be infinite. Remain balanced this week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your feelings won’t change if conditions change. You and a loved one are on the same basic wavelength so the two of you can easily handle any challenging or unpredictable situations in the week to come. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When you feel good about yourself it is easy to be friendly toward others. You are shrewd about handling daily business. You could be reminded in the week to come that is better to save money than spend it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Balance the heavy load. Don’t add more tasks to your agenda in the upcoming week, as you will have enough to handle. You can’t place blame on anyone else if you refuse to take your obligations seriously. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be sensible and put things in proportion. In the upcoming week you might find occasions when you are tempted to overreact. Hold off on starting anything of major consequence and put contracts on the back burner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Once work is done you can have some fun. In the week ahead you must fulfill all your responsibilities, but in your spare time you can concentrate on making your surroundings more aesthetically appealing.


Wolfgang Puck’s Kitchen Make Your Summer Menu Sizzle With Grilled Steaks By Wolfgang Puck GRILLED NEW YORK STEAKS WITH CILANTRO-SHALLOT SAUCE Serves 6 8 tablespoons peanut oil 4 shallots, thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus 12 whole sprigs 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger 1 to 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes 1/2 cup (125 mL) good-quality canned chicken stock or broth 1/2 cup (125 mL) bottled Chinese hoisin sauce 1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce 3 tablespoons honey 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 6 boneless New York strip steaks, each 6 to 8 ounces (185 to 250 g) Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Build a hot fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas or electric grill. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Drizzle 4 tablespoons of the peanut oil in a large saute pan, and place it over medium heat. Watch carefully and, when the oil just starts to give off wisps of smoke, add the shallots, garlic, chopped cilantro, ginger and red

pepper flakes to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture is soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in the stock, hoisin and soy sauce, and simmer briskly, stirring frequently, until the sauce has reduced and thickened slightly, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in the honey and butter; reduce the heat to very low, cover and keep warm. When the grill is ready, put the steaks on a platter and generously season both sides of the steaks generously with salt and pepper; there should be enough for the seasonings to be visible on the surface of the meat. Rub the steaks on both sides with the remaining peanut oil. Place the steaks on the grill, and cook them 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, turning them once with grill tongs; an instant-read grill thermometer inserted into the middle of the thickest part of a steak should register 135 F to 140 F (57 C to 60 C). Transfer the steaks to a cutting board, cover loosely with heavy-duty aluminum foil, and set aside in a warm place to rest for 5 minutes, to let the juices settle. Using a sharp carving knife, with the blade at a 45-degree angle, cut each steak crosswise into slices 1/4-inch (6-mm) thick, and arrange them overlapping on individual warmed serving plates. Spoon some warm sauce over each steak and transfer the rest to a sauceboat for guests who want extra. Garnish each steak with cilantro sprigs and serve immediately.
