By Jennifer Peacock TOMS RIVER – The neighborhood looks like a typical, middle class one, with mostly manicured lawns that, in mid-July, are blooming with tiger lilies and hostas in yards, hanging baskets filled with a riot of pe-

tunias or impatiens - probably purchased from a local big-box chain or grocery store - lining front porches. Shrubbery creates fences and privacy walls, while

many properties are otherwise treeless. The yards typify the postWorld War II ideal of success.

VA Clinic Busiest In NJ

By Judy Smestad-Nunn BRICK – With an estimated 40,000 veterans living in Ocean County, the Veterans Administration’s Outpatient Clinic on Route 70 in Brick is “by far” the busiest of 10 community-based VA clinics in New Jersey, said director of the VA New

Jersey Health Care System Vincent F. Immiti. T here are 10,000 veterans enrolled to receive their primary care at the Brick clinic, and with an estimated 85,000 to 90,000 visits a year, the facility is one of the 27 U.S. clinics that will be expanded after Congress approved a $1.5 billion

By Chris Lundy MANCHESTER – The township entered i nto a new energ y aggregation contract with Constellat ion New Energy recently, and residents should expect to see more information about the program soon. An energy aggregation program is when a town buys its electricity in bulk with other entities to save costs. While Constellation will provide the actual electricity, Jersey Central Power and Light will still own the wires delivering it. Therefore, residents should keep an eye out for bills from JCP&L.

Previously, the township had a contract with TriEagle Energy which expired at the end of July. According to township figures, this saved residents more than $4 million over the course of the two years the town contracted with TriEagle. This new contract will also last two years, officials said. The first bill with the new rates will be in October. The deal with Constellation comes after a few attempts at finding a good deal. TriEagle offered rates 20 percent lower than JCP&L’s rates when it started. However, in (Energy - See Page 5)

And they are killing us. But then there’s Pamela Almeida’s yard, which like a moth to a flame drew the attention of code enforcement for a while. To the untrained eye, it would appear that Almeida doesn’t own a lawnmower or weed whacker and doesn’t care. Her front yard (and backyard), however, is a haven for insects and birds whose habitats are choked out by non-native plants, invasive species and yard-beautifying poisons. She eventually won over code enforcement and is spreading her conservation message to the public about the importance of pollinators in general and their impact on the environment. How does she do this? Through monarch butterflies. Almeida, a Toms River resident for 15 years, has been involved with The Native Plant Society of New Jersey for the last 8 years. She just joined Save Barnegat Bay, where Eagle Scouts are building a butterfly waystation. She’s also worked in animal control, including in Toms River. “When you bring up bees, or certain pollinators, people are completely turned off. So, learning how to approach people about native plants or pesticides in their yard, the gateway, I found, was butterflies, because everyone loves butterflies,” Almeida said. “They are a threatened species, because of lack of food source, lack of habitat, pesticides, insecticides. Their decline is an indicator for what’s going on in the enThe General’s

Raising Monarchs She also raises monarch butterflies, an intensive labor of love that consumes hours of her summer days. Her dining area is transformed into a butterfly nursery for part of the year. “I’ve always been around animals. I was taught very young to have compassion and awareness of things around us,” Almeida said. Female monarch butterflies in New Jersey

spend their adult lives eating milkweed and laying eggs. Those that are born in September and October will migrate to warmer climes in California or Mexico. Almeida can easily spot monarch eggs, which are smaller than a grain of rice and stuck to milkweed leaves. She gently removes the leaf from its plant and brings it inside, where she keeps the insects in containers in various stages of development - egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, adult. She spends hours each morning changing and bleaching leaves, moving caterpillars, and checking for diseases. Monarchs specifically can suffer from Ophryocystis elektroscirrha, a fatal protozoan parasite that is spread from infected adults onto eggs or milkweed leaves, then ingested by caterpillars. Almeida raises each egg she finds, but can’t confirm an O.E. infection until the monarch is an adult. O.E. is confirmed or ruled out by pressing the monarch’s abdomen against the sticky side of transparent tape and examining the tape under a microscope to check for O.E. spores. Almeida will release healthy adults into her yard. Monarchs found with O.E. have to be euthanized, or they’ll spread the fatal disease to other monarchs. Return Of The Native Eight years ago, Almeida simply considered herself an avid gardener. She brought seeds to a swap at Jake’s Branch county park - she was the only one who brought seeds - and was approached about co-leading the

local chapter of The Native Plant Society. “I was terrified because I’m just an avid gardener. I really at the time did not understand or know about native plants or the impact they had. Most of my yard, at that point, was invasive species, thinking I was doing the best thing for pollinators by having all of these flowers. And as my education grew, finding out things like big box stores, their plants are from seeds soaked in systemic (insecticides). So, the whole purpose of what I was doing was actually harming the environment more than helping,” Almeida said. “Maybe let’s think about how native plants will bring back those insects, which are not only necessary for our soil, but our bird population. It goes up the entire food chain.” For example, she said she recently attended a bird-watching event at Georgian Court University. At one point, dozens upon dozens of species would be seen around campus. They counted 11. That pesticide that keeps pests away also gets ingested by the birds that eat the worms. They all die. “So I transformed my yard into native species, and the abundance…if you were here [in early July], the abundance of pollinators just on my milkweed is astronomical. It’s a beautiful thing to see birds that are in my yard and different species. Many, many types of insects.” Insects have specific host plants. Monarchs, for instance, only eat milkweed, only lay their eggs on milkweed. No native insects eat hostas or burning bush, both native to Asia, for example. So people are

vironment. People are starting to become more aware.” She created Endangered Wings, a charitable educational program that teaches participants about the butterflies and how pest control and landscaping practices are decimating pollinator populations. She also accepts donations to bring pollinator centers to schools, retirement communities, and garden centers. “When I bring programs to schools, I ask the kids, ‘What do you find when you go outside?’ And they say mosquitoes and ticks. And that’s heartbreaking, because there is so much beauty out there and it’s becoming less and less, our children are losing that compassion, losing that knowledge, because they’re being conditioned to not enjoy [the outdoors], because of what past generations have done, and what the government is still doing, and that makes a huge impact,” Almeida said. Some studies have indicated 90 percent of the monarch butterfly population has died over the last 10 years, 80 percent in California last year alone.

Lawmakers Want Tax Breaks For Shore Homeowners Renting To Tourists CAPITOL COMMENTS 10th Legislative District Senator Jim Holzapfel • Assemblyman Greg McGuckin • Assemblyman Dave Wolfe

TRENTON – Legislation that would relieve the costly consequences of a tax on short-term rentals that was imposed by Governor Phil Murphy last year continues to sit on the governor’s desk

while evidence of the tax’s damage to the Jersey Shore economy mounts. Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Greg McGuckin and Dave Wolfe (R-10th) say they are frustrated by the

delay and are calling on the Murphy administration to enact the bill before it’s too late for the summer season. “The legislature has done our job to rework portions of the tax that are unfair to shore homeowners,” said Holzapfel. “The governor’s inaction is troubling and irresponsible. While he vacations at his villa in Italy, rentals are going unoccupied and business is feeling the impact. We need this bill signed now.” The measure

(S-3158/A-4814) was passed unanimously by the Senate and Assembly and has been parked on the governor’s desk since June 27. It exempts homeowners who rent directly to vacationers from last year’s so-called Airbnb tax which extended the 6.625 percent sales tax and the 5 percent hotel and motel occupancy fee to private rentals of less than 90 days. A newspaper report published confirms the law’s severe impact on the shore

season. According to the Inquirer, homeowners are having a difficult time finding renters and revenue is down by as much as 20 percent. “We were worried about what this tax would do to the shore communities, and the reality is as bad as we feared or worse,” said McGuckin. “Unheard of numbers of rental units are sitting vacant in prime vacation weeks, and owners are being forced to make deep discounts to fill openings. It’s not just

homeowners who are feeling the pinch. The seasonal businesses that rely on the summer months to get them through the year are paying the price, too.” “There’s still a few weeks of the vacation season remaining,” said Wolfe. “Summer tourism is too important to New Jersey’s economy for the governor to continue to ignore this important piece of legislation. He needs to step up and sign the bill now.”

Bill Would Provide $1.8 Billion For Autism Programs From The Desk Of


Chris Smith WASHINGTON, D.C. - Bipartisan, bicameral legislation to powerfully support and aggressively pursue durable remedies and effective interventions for the 1.5 million children with autism was approved unanimously by the U.S. House of Representatives. Authored by Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), with chief Democrat cosponsor, Rep. Mike Doyle (PA14), The Autism CARES Act of 2019 provides slightly more than $1.8 billion over five years “for America’s whole-of-government Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) initiative” lead by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Smith’s bill also helps adults with autism who he said are “are often misdiagnosed, underdiagnosed and overlooked. Language throughout the bill emphasizes that causes, diagnosis, detection, prevention and treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) must be throughout the lifespan of a person. According to Drexel University’s AJ Drexel Autism Center, about fifty to sixty thousand children “age out” to adulthood each year creating challenges for education, hous-

ing, employment and access to health care,” he said. Smith thanked the more than 35 non-governmental organizations that have endorsed his legislation and called on the Senate for speedy passage. Excerpts from Rep. Smith’s statement follows: “Mr. Speaker, this bipartisan, bicameral legislation powerfully supports and pursues durable remedies and effective interventions for the approximately 1.5 million children with ASD, - that is an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States, in my home State of New Jersey, 1 in 34 children, the highest rate in the CDC study. “This bill also helps adults with autism who were and are today often misdiagnosed, underdiagnosed and overlooked. Language throughout the bill emphasizes that causes, diagnosis, detection, prevention and treatment of autism spectrum disorder must be throughout the lifespan of a person. “According to Drexel University’s AJ Drexel Autism Center, about fifty to sixty thousand children “age out” to adulthood each year creating challenges for education, housing, employment and access to health care. Autism CARES of 2019

continues the work on aging out begun under the Autism CARES Act of 2014. “The Autism CARES Act of 2019 assists the parents, families and caregivers who deeply love and cherish children with ASD and want the brightest future possible for them. In addition to its groundbreaking prevalence studies and early intervention work, CDC’s Learn the Signs. Act Early is an amazing tool for parents. “The legislation also robustly supports the dedicated physicians, scientists and support teams who daily strive to treat, research and provide meaningful answers. “The Autism CARES Act of 2019 authorizes a little over $1.8 billion over five years for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). “Looking back, Mr. Speaker, it was two dedicated parents from New Jersey who helped launch the comprehensive Federal policy we seek to reauthorize today. “In September of 1997, Bobbie and Billy Gallagher of Brick, New Jersey - parents of two small autistic children - walked into my Ocean County office looking for help. “They believed Brick had a disproportionate number of students with autism and wanted action, especially for their son Austin and daughter Alana, so I invited the CDC, ATSDR and other Federal agencies to Brick for an investigation, only

to learn that prevalence rates were high not only in Brick, but in nearby communities as well. “Believing we had a serious spike in prevalence, I introduced the ASSURE Act, cosponsored by 199 members, which was incorporated as title I of the Children’s Health Act of 2000. “Mr. Speaker, much progress has been made since. Today, the evidence suggests there is no single cause of autism or type. Genetic risk, coupled with environmental factors, including advanced parental age, low birth weight, and prematurity - among

President & Publisher Stewart Swann

other factors - may be triggers. Other studies have identified ASD risk factors including pesticides, air pollutants, dietary factors. “Early intervention is making a major positive impact in the lives of children with ASD but parents need more support. In 2016, Bobbi Gallagher wrote a book: A Brick Wall - How a Boy with No Words Spoke to the World. In this highly personal, extraordinarily moving must read account of raising two children with autism, Bobbi writes: “This mom thing is hard.”

Mr. Speaker, Autism CARES Act of 2019 ensures that the federal government continues to help hundreds of thousands of parents like the Gallaghers - funding research and support programs and sharing best practices. The bill reauthorizes and expands the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) managed so effectively and professionally by Dr. Susan Daniels, Director of the Office of Autism Research Coordination (OARC). Coordination is key to maximizing outcomes.”

way more in federal dollars than it gets in return: $0.61 for every dollar paid in to the federal gover n ment. On the other hand, Kentucky gets $1.51. If New Jersey got our fair share of tax dollars paid back, we would have plent y of money to fund our roads, schools, local heroes, etc. It’s time our leaders demand we get our fair share and stop funding greedy “welfare states’ like Kentucky. We can easily take care of our own! We must urge our leaders, Senators Booker and Mendendez as well as our Congressional Representatives to demand New Jersey gets a fair share of our tax money back from the feds.

Letters To The Editor Why I’m Running For Mayor of Berkeley First, let me introduce myself. My name is Laura Shaw. I am a lifelong resident of Berkeley Township. I grew up in the Belaire Park section of Bayville. As newlyweds in the 1980s my husband Jim and I bought our first house in the Cedar Beach section. In the 1990s, we bought our present home in the Holly Park section. I love my hometown. I could live anywhere, but I choose to live here. I’m proud and excited to be running for mayor of Berkeley Township. When I tell people I’m running for office, the reaction is usually one of the two following questions: “Can you get me a job?” or “Why would you want to do that?” This is my response to those two questions. The first one is easy. No, I can’t get you a job. If I am elected mayor, I am not going to hire any friends and family. I have worked for several local governments for the last 18 years and I have seen up close the negative effects of nepotism. In addition to competency issues, it is destructive to the morale of the other employees. We want productive, motivated employees who are qualified to do their jobs and will provide excellent service to the residents. Radical, I know, but I’m confident I can keep this promise. The second question, the “why” is a little more complicated. As a government employee, I have had a front row seat to how towns work and how they are supposed to work, good, bad and ugly. I enjoy working with the public and helping to solve problems. People tell me the mayor is a “thankless” job. I disagree. If your motivation is to improve the quality of life in your hometown, how can that be thankless? I don’t buy into the cynicism that pervades our politics today. You can make things

Letters To The Editor better if you go into public with any questions, sugges- much better. service for the right reasons. I am so lucky to have this opportunity and have three terrific running mates who feel, as I do, that as great as Berkeley is, we can do better. Years of one-party control and the resulting patronage have not produced any significant progress. We have gone door to door and spoken with hundreds of residents and the same issues keep coming up. Taxes have risen steadily. There are two ways to provide tax relief: bring new businesses to town and cut expenses. We need to do both. We need to focus on commercial development on the Route 9 corridor. More restaurants, more stores, things for people to do. When I grew up in Bayville, we had a movie theater and a bowling alley. Now we have neither. We need to focus on beautification as well. If we want to attract new businesses, we need to make Route 9 look more appealing. Current and future expenses need to be examined. Can we share services on some items with neighboring towns and still provide excellent service? We must go out to bid for every professional service contract, including attorneys, engineers and other professionals. Builders need to be held accountable for any construction flaws and issues with f looding and land grading. Paving projects need to be better coordinated with state and county road departments. Purchase orders need to be carefully examined. When I can’t afford to buy something, I don’t buy it. I don’t ask my neighbors to pay for it. If elected, I will bring this fiscally conservative mindset to our hometown. In closing I would like to thank the voters and residents of Berkeley Township for all the positive feedback and suggestions I have received since becoming a candidate. Please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail at

tions or concerns you may have. I am humbled and grateful for the chance to participate in the electoral process. I hope you will consider voting for me and my running mates in November to bring fresh ideas, expertise and perspective to our beautiful hometown. Laura Shaw Berkeley

Barnegat Mayor Abuses His Position At the Barnegat Township Committee meeting, Mayor Al Cirulli took over the meeting to espouse his homophobic, fear-mongering beliefs that the inclusion of the political, economic and social contributions of the disabled and LGBTQ communities in school curricula would “indoctrinate” the students of Barnegat. There is much evidence that demonstrates that information is valuable, not detrimental, to creating an inclusive, open and caring community. More importantly, this is a clear abuse of his elected position as a Committee member and as Mayor. The scripture quotes and statements such as, “God would hold politicians accountable for passing such laws,” are also a violation of the separation of church and state and have no business in a township meeting. Equally disturbing was the silence that ensued from most of the other Committee members sitting there on the dais with Cirulli. John Novak spoke in support of Cirulli’s comments while Linda Kropf, Pat Pipi and incumbent Al Bille, up for re-election in November, sat there silently. Silence means consent. You all had a chance to do the right thing and you chose to sit there. I can only hope that the people of Barnegat recognize that the current Township Committee is not inclusive, does not value all equally and that the residents deserve better,

Editor’s note: This letter writer is running for election against Cirulli and Bille. Peg Houle Barnegat

Mueller’s Report A Scam Although Molinari’s letter re. the Mueller report is very descriptive its composition, number of pages, and even the color of its cover, he misses the point. Unfortunately for people of his mindset, we DID read the Mueller report, so the b.s. emanating from its believers of its fiction has not taken hold. It is also so far out of the loop, knowing what we now have seen about the issue. Mueller’s investigation was not made to “exonerate” Trump, nor fi nd him guilty or not guilty. It was to find out if he had broken any laws or committed any crimes. He didn’t. Mueller’s duty was to report that and not make a political statement. As we have learned now, and will learn even more in the future, this entire exercise was a politically instigated, criminal fraud perpetrated upon Trump and the American people, by a weaponized DOJ, CIA, FBI, and other government agencies. They will be held to account for their criminality as we also shall see. After spending over 20 million on a scam that they all knew was false, and had no evidence of, Mueller couldn’t even be honest enough to accurately and truthfully report his negative findings. Being the consummate, DC political hack, he left “questions” open and created doubtful controversy so as to prevent the closure of his folly. He left that “grenade with the pin pulled” in the room because he is apparently as corrupt as those who hired him. Fun times are ahead as “The Reckoning” looms. Dennis O’Brien Jackson


Continued From Page 1 McInerney, Chief of VA Outpatient Clinics in NJ Melba West, and veteran leaders from Ocean County. Not only is the Brick facility the busiest in New Jersey, it is also the largest and offers more services than the other clinics. With a growing population of younger veterans, not having enough space or parking has been a problem for years. At 34,335 square feet, the Brick clinic offers services including primary care, mental health, dental, audiology, radiology, pharmacy, physical therapy, and much more. Tele-Health is a new service for veterans who can’t leave their homes, said Public Information Officer for the VA Jason Kaneshiro. “Veterans can be seen remotely by a VA doctor using technology like smart phones and computers to improve services to vets,” said Kaneshiro, who served 10 years in the Army.


Continued From Page 4 not only starving native insects and plants, but inviting invasive insects to the area. Stinkbugs. No native birds eat those, so they reproduce with abandon. Black-spotted mosquitoes, another invasive species. They attack all day. Native mosquitoes only came out at dusk. “Even having a small habitat on your property can make a huge impact on the things around you. So when people feel like it’s not just depressing and hopeless, but when they’re empowered and they can make a difference, and there is a way they

The Manchester Times, August 17, 2019, Page 11 The square footage for the proposed facility is about 60,000 square feet, and with 450 parking spaces would offer all the existing services and more, he said. The lease on the Brick clinic expires in September 2020, but there would be a bridge lease until a new facility is completed, said Kaneshiro. The larger facility might be new construction, or it could be a rehabilitated existing structure, but it is still in the planning stages. There was no word on where in Ocean County it would be located, he said. Meanwhile, the Brick clinic has hired four doctors to replace doctors who left, and they are adding a nurse practitioner, which would give the clinic increased capacity, Immiti said. The two VA medical centers in New Jersey - one located in East Orange, and the other in Lyons in Somerset County - are “very, very short-staffed” of physicians, Immiti said, which could be caused by physician salary limits and/or by marketing towards physicians.

The hospitals’ affiliation with New Jersey medical schools has helped a great deal, he added. Beginning on June 6, 2019, under the Mission Act, veterans have more ways to access health care by making it easier for them to seek medical care by using a network of providers in the community, Kaneshiro said. The White House has a VA hotline where veterans can report or make a complaint about their medical care. The number is 1-855-948-2311. “The calls get filtered down to individual networks, and they get to us eventually so we can try to set things right, but it takes time,” Kaneshiro said. After Congressman Kim toured the facility and spoke to several veterans he said he had a dual purpose for his visit to the James J. Howard Outpatient Clinic. “I’m trying to make sure the VA stays on track with the dates for the new clinic to open in 2021,” he said. Kim said he calls and meets with the VA

on a regular basis. “I have been told that that target will be met,” said Kim, who serves on the Armed Services Committee. His second reason for coming to Brick was to make sure that veterans are getting quality care until the new clinic is opened, he said. “The Office of Construction and Facilities Management in Washington D.C. is evaluating sites and evaluating bids for the new clinic, and will ask for our input, and then we’ll take a look at the sites and at where the veterans are,” Immiti said. Hazlet veteran Jimmy Krause, 37, said he comes to the Brick clinic two to three times a week. “I drive here for the extra services they offer for alternative therapies for mental health,” he said. “Parking is a little difficult, and space is an issue, but the staff is amazing, especially for Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans, he said. Krause served in Iraq for a year during the initial invasion in 2003 and again in Afghanistan in 2006.

can make a change, I think that bring a lot of hope,” Almeida said. According to The Native Plant Society of New Jersey, butterf ly host f lowers include asters, beardtong ue, golden alexander, indigo (blue false), milkweeds, white turtlehead, and violets. A full list of butterfly host plants can be found at Butterfly_Plants_ NJNPS_list2.pdf.

“How can we fi x the land? You’re hurting your economy. You’re hurting your homeowners. Simple changes at a local level can save millions of dollars. Let’s save taxpayer money by not mowing these certain areas and installing native plants instead,” Almeida said. “When it comes to the political standpoint, [politicians] don’t necessarily care about the butterflies, but they do care about their wallet. So when you talk about what we do and how it can save our municipalities and county money, well then people might listen.” One recent report out of Ohio stated that the state saved more than $2 million on mowing costs by installing native plants

- specifically, wildflowers - along state highways. Almeida’s work can be seen at endangered

Save The Money Planting native plants not only saves habitats, it saves money. Native plants thrive in native soil and don’t need fertilizer. They hold soil better, thereby preventing erosion.

The Manchester Times welcomes your special announcements! Engagements, Weddings, Births, Birthday Wishes, etc. Please call 732-657-7344 for more details!

How You Can Help Besides ditching the nonnative plant species and poisons, Almeida says locals can help by volunteering with her, learning how to raise monarchs and release healthy specimens into nature. She’s looking for interns who want hands-on training on how to raise the butterflies from egg to adult. More infor mation can be found at

Dear Joel

By Joel Markel

Students Need School Supplies Dear Joel, Summer isn’t even over yet and we’ve already gotten our school supply list from my son’s new teacher. I’ve started looking around, and was disheartened at how expensive fulfilling this list is going to be. Do you have suggestions as to how I can save some money and still make sure my son has all that he needs to have a great school year? Answer: It seems like Summer gets shorter every year, and back to school shopping starts earlier. Shopping for school supplies can be fun for students, and expensive for their parents, costing

upwa rd s of $200 per student. For electronics such as calculators and computers, I would suggest resale sites like Facebook Marketplace, letgo, etc. for gently used but fully functional items. For the basics such as notebooks, paper, pencils, etc., I would recommend buying in bulk at stores like BJs, Costco, etc. and splitting with other parents.

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

You Can Order Your Own Lab Tests Now

By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.

I am thrilled to tell you that you can test yourself for pretty much anything! It’s absolutely fantastic and quickly puts you on the track to better health! In the old days, if you wanted to check something, you had to make an appointment with the doctor, wait a week, drive over, request the test you want, or hope the pertinent one is offered, and then go to a lab somewhere else, probably on another day because you needed to fast. Then you’d wait another week for results! Today you can order your own tests from many labs nationwide, either online, or by going directly to the laboratory or local hospital where these are offered. Call in advance. I just did it the other day to test the theory before writing this. I went to the local hospital’s out-patient laboratory on a Thursday (quiet time). I ordered a ferritin and TIBC test for iron, filled out a simple form, provided a driver’s license, and had blood drawn within minutes. I was in and out the door in 8 minutes! Typically results are made available on your lab’s secure website or they can be picked up. If you’re buying a test online the website should begin with https, not http in the URL, to keep your credit card information secure. Here are 2 options: You can call Quest as well, they are nationwide or go online to Even if you need a local lab or a phlebotomist, you can arrange that pretty easily as well, just

visit to find a location near you. There’s also Phlebotomy Services International and you can visit Advantages 1. It’s convenient because some tests for urine, saliva or feces are conducted from home, and you mail samples back to the lab in pre-paid envelopes. 2. It’s private, which is useful for drug/alcohol testing or gene testing … even STDs. 3. Self-pay pricing is dramatically reduced. Monitoring your PT, ferritin, A1c and cholesterol just got a whole lot cheaper! 4. Get well quicker! Ordering highly specialized tests can reveal the missing link, and therefore speed healing for chronic situations that haven’t responded to conventional treatments. Aren’t you tired of doing the same thing with no results? There are disadvantages which I outline in the longer version of my article which you will receive over email. Join my online community which is almost 200,000 people strong, and decide to get all the longer versions of my articles. Tuesday is Suze-day, lol, and that’s when you get my newsletter which also includes specialized lab tests now available. Sign up at One disadvantage is that you get an abnormal test result. What do you do? Obviously, you will need guidance from your practitioner, but I even have a useful workaround for that! And specialty tests that are extraordinary in their scope, and exclusive to specialty labs (which you can now purchase yourself).

R.C. Shea & Assoc.


Robert C. Shea Esq.

By: Michael J, Deem Robert C. Shea, Esq. of R.C. Shea & Associates Have you been ripped off by a car dealer, a home improvement contractor or some other business? Remember, there is no such thing as a “free lunch.” Anytime someone tries to sell you something, you should take everything they say with a grain of salt. This is particularly true when you purchase a car, buy a home, hire someone to remodel your house, pay for any other type of goods and/or services, and particularly where you are entering into some type of written agreement. Unfortunately, we live in a society today where some businesses make claims or representations that turn out not to be true or omit to tell you an important item, for example, that an automobile has been in a severe prior accident or a home has a wet basement. Make no mistake, fraud is rampant in New Jersey. The Division of Consumer Affairs reports that the largest source of complaints concern car dealers and home improvement contractors. However there are other dishonest businesses that rip off consumers for small amounts of money – which add up to a lot of profits for the business. When the amount is small, you may think that your damages are too small to hire an attorney and may not be worth the time to do something about it. THE NEW JERSEY CONSUMER FRAUD ACT Fortunately, New Jersey has a remedy – the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act- is the strongest consumer protection law in the nation. If you have been the victim of a misrepresentation, deception, fraud, false pretense or the omission of an important material fact, you may be entitled to three times your damages plus payment of your attorney’s fees by the defendant business if you have suffered the loss of money. The Consumer Fraud Act covers almost every sale of merchandise and services. The purpose of the Act is to promote honesty and fair dealing in the marketplace. For example, any affirmative misrepresentation by a seller results in liability regardless of whether the representation was made in good faith or negligently. Businesses are presumed to have a superior knowledge of the goods and services that they sell as well as superior knowledge of the laws and regulations

that govern your business. Accordingly, they are strictly liable for committing consumer fraud. The purpose of the Act is to encourage private attorneys Michael J. Deem to represent consumers in disputes that involve small damages otherwise consumers would not be able to obtain representation. The defendant is required to pay the successful consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs. AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE When you deal with a home-improvement contractor or other seller, try to limit the amount that you make as a down payment. The more money that pay a contractor upfront, the greater the risk they will delay the job, not return to finish the work, or not make corrections. There have been many stories where a contractor took a deposit and never returned to start the job or only did a little work and never returned. When purchasing a used car, you should always get a CARFAX and you should always take the vehicle to your trusted mechanic and have it tested. Make sure that any verbal representations that are made by the dealer are put in writing. Always read the agreement! Many times, the agreements contain paragraphs that limit the liability of the seller, require you to give up consumer protection rights, or say things that are completely opposite from that which the seller has verbally promised. Although “Buyer Beware” is not the law in New Jersey, not reading or understanding the terms of the agreement you sign is no defense—the seller is not required to explain the agreement and you cannot rely on the verbal representations when entering into a written contract. The litigation attorneys at the Law Offices of R.C. Shea & Associates handle most consumer fraud claims on a contingency basis. A contingency means if there is no recovery, there is no fee.

New Employment Program For Those Affected By The Opioid Crisis

Compassionate Nursing Care. Let us help you with your health care needs!

OCEAN COUNTY – A new, state-funded initiative will provide help and support to individuals as well as family members who have been affected by the opioid crisis and need employment assistance. Called “Pathways to Success,” the program is available to Ocean County residents through December 2020. The Mental Health Association – Ocean County is providing the service in cooperation with multiple, partnering agencies. “Many people might expect that a program like this is strictly for individuals in recovery. But that’s partly what is really unique and great about this. Family members are eligible for help, too. People who lost work as a result of stress and helping a loved one are included,” explained Racheal O’Dea, Executive Director at the Mental Health Association – Ocean County. O’Dea explained that employment is the focus of this program because holding a job is a determinant of long-term recovery for individuals and their loved ones. Among the ser vices being offered are one-on-one case management for employment, job coaching/mentoring, assistance with expungement and applications as well as resume and cover letter writing. In addition, funding is available on a case-by-case basis for training, text exams, bus passes, shortterm childcare, clothing and other types of reimbursements. High demand jobs in the areas of customer service and sales have been approved for credentialing through the program. Continuing Education Units, or CEUs, are also available. “This provides more f lexibility than traditional employment services because each individual can choose what ser-

vices would be most helpful,” explained O’Dea. “By comparison, other programs may cost money or have requirements.” Individuals in recovery who participate in “Pathways to Success” will be offered non-clinical supports for mental and physical health as well. O’Dea said that family members also have the option to meet with specially trained, experienced staff that can provide case management and offer strategies for stress management and coping skills. If needed, participants may be referred for clinical services. The mental health component is critical, stressed O’Dea, because families and individuals in recovery have experienced a crisis as a result of the substance abuse disorder. The grant is expected to cover 100 residents. Local agencies will be referring participants to “Pathways to Success,” but members of the com mu nit y are invited and encouraged to reach out for the assistance. “Pathways to Success” is grant-funded through Ocean County Human Services. A governor’s initiative, it is provided by the New Jersey Departments of Labor and Mental Health and Addiction Services. The assistance is available in the six counties most affected by the opioid epidemic, which are Ocean, Atlantic, Camden, Essex, Middlesex and Monmouth Counties. Ocean County residents who are interested in “Pathways to Success” can call 848-480-0913 or The Mental Health Association – Ocean County is located at 25 S. Shore Drive, Toms River. Appointments are available. Walk-in hours are Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; evening hours are available by appointment.

AROUND THE JERSEY SHORE NJ Awards Funding For “Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over” Crackdown

By Kimberly Bosco OCEAN COUNTY – We all know the phrase by now: “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” In an effort to crack down on drunk and impaired drivers with the national “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” initiative, the Division of Highway Traffic Safety awarded grants totaling more than $540,000 to local law enforcement agencies throughout the state. One hundred and ten law enforcement agencies in NJ received funds to staff saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints during the campaign, which runs from August 16 through September 3. In Ocean County, three $5,500 grants were awarded to Berkeley Township, Jackson Township and Seaside Heights. In Monmouth County, five $5,500 grants were awarded to Allentown, Brielle, Eatontown, Middletown, and Howell. More than 300 additional agencies, including the New Jersey State Police, are expected to join the annual statewide traffic safety effort aimed at reducing highway crashes. “The risks of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol are enormous and the consequences are tragic,” said Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal. “With rideshare apps and

other forms of public transportation readily available, there’s no excuse for anyone to get behind the wheel impaired.” Statistics show that in 2017, driving while under the influence of either alcohol or drugs was a contributing factor in more than 25 percent of the 591 fatal crashes that occurred on New Jersey roadways. Those 158 alcohol/ drug-related crashes killed 174 people. During a five-year period between 2013 and 2017, 678 individuals were killed in alcohol-related crashes in the state. “Impaired driving remains one of the biggest traffic safety threats in New Jersey and combatting it is a year-round priority in our state,” said Eric Heitmann, Director of the Division of Highway Traffic Safety. “As we head into the final weeks of summer and the busy Labor Day driving weekend, our officers will be stepping up those efforts, working longer hours and increasing sobriety checks to keep intoxicated drivers off the road. If you’re out there driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the odds are we’re going to stop you and arrest you.” Last year, the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign yielded over 1,196 impaired driving arrests, 4,764 speeding summonses, and 3,194 seat belt citations.

AROUND THE JERSEY SHORE Seaside Heights Offering Weekday Beach Badge Early-Bird Special

SEASIDE HEIGHTS – Seaside Heights is offering an end-of-summer “Get To The Beach” early bird special now through August 29. Beach goers can purchase an adult wristband (12 years-of-age and older) from any beach cashier booth 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for only $4.00. That’s 50 percent off the regular price of $8.00 per wristband. The discount is on cash purchases only and is not available through the Viply smartphone app. According to Seaside Heights Mayor Anthony Vaz, “Fortunately, our beach attendance has been very good this summer, so we have the ability to partner with local businesses to offer this “Get To The Beach” beach discount. As the summer winds down and families prepare for school, we want to encourage people to visit the Seaside Heights beach one more time!” Mayor Vaz said. The borough has partnered with parking lots and other businesses to offer early birds even more discounts during the same 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. time. Parking is one-half price at 1400 Ocean Terrace, 16 Hamilton Ave, and 9 Ocean Terrace. Pay $5 to park at 715 Boulevard.

In addition, early birds will pay one-half price for beach chair and umbrella rentals at the Hancock Ave, Blaine Ave, Sumner Ave, and Franklin Ave beach accessories rental booths on the beach. When beach goers receive their half-price wristband, they should ask the cashier for a discount brochure containing even more savings at participating restaurants, amusements and retail stores. Details of the Get To The Beach early bird specials may be found at earlybird. Military service men and women, veterans, and their spouses and children are free every day on the Seaside Heights beach. And there are also special discount days: Aug. 20 for Bring a Friend Day. The Seaside Heights beach has been voted Ocean County’s Favorite Beach for four consecutive years in the NJ Sea Grant annual ratings. Enjoyment in Seaside Heights doesn’t end with Labor Day, either. There is a full schedule of weekend fall events ranging from a country music and barbecue festival, to other weekend-long music events, to Wine on the Beach, to the Italian festival and parade. Details may be found at

The Arc, Ocean County sold over 600 tickets to four separate BlueClaws games during the months of May, June and July.

Her mobile veterinary practice specifi cally caters to livestock species: sheep, goats, alpacas, pigs, poultry, and cattle. Dr. Masur is proud to be from the Garden State - a state with deep agricultural roots. Our great state is experiencing a renewed passion for homesteading and raising livestock. It’s important that both our first generation farmers and our veteran farmers have access to veterinary medicine and surgery that makes sense for their farm. Dr. Masur strives to be an asset to every farm’s management plan, whether that farm is a herd of one, or a herd of one hundred. Dr. Masur spent her first years in practice working on all species, including dogs and cats. Although she has departed the traditional clinic setting, she firmly believes in housecall hospice services. In-home euthanasia ensures that the passing of your pet does not have to be any harder than it already is. The peace that we wish for our pets can be undermined by a car ride to the clinic and the bright lights of the treatment room. With in-home euthanasia, you choose where and how your family says their final goodbye - whether it’s on their favorite couch or under their favorite tree. Whether you need a livestock vet on your farm, or a hospice vet at your home, call Hoof & Hound at 848-224-5046 or email

Omarr’s Astrological Forecast For the week of aug 17 - aug 23 By Jeraldine Saunders

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Conversations with friends might be inspiring or spur your imagination. In the upcoming week you might be empowered by a loved one’s ideas or insights to make your mark in your career or job. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is not be the right time to start an extreme diet, as your self-discipline could be really tested in the week to come. Better results would come with gradual long-term changes in nutritional habits. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You excel at finding practical solutions for financial problems because your mental prowess is enhanced at this time. In the week to come you may be more concerned with business than with love. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Stay abreast of news and trends. Show you can be an excellent businessperson by being on top of the latest data. In the week ahead show good taste and spend your money for things you need or want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Start the week off with a bang rather than a whimper. Approach your work or a project with a fearless and fierce attitude and you will make headway. Friends will support your efforts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep conversations fresh and relevant by having plenty of inspiring stories on hand. As the week unfolds, your wits will grow sharper and it will be easier to put your best ideas into action.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may be content to gaze into one another’s eyes for the moment. It is wonderful just to hold hands, but handholding could possibly lead to something more intense as the week progresses. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Expand your horizons and be prepared to let go of what no longer serves you well. In the week to come use the opportunities and insights that arise to rid yourself of outworn ideas, attitudes and habits. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share inspiring stories that will brighten conversations and uplift spirits. In the upcoming week it can be profitable to join forces with others to mastermind a wealth of new ideas. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the week ahead don’t be pressured into making a decision before you have the clarity to be sure it is the right one. Romantic meetings may occur, but it may take time to break an impasse first. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can be completely absorbed in your home and family this week yet still be a go-getter when your career is involved. Share something pleasing but sensible with loved ones. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make your workplace a happy hub of industry; use your ability to be sympathetic and compassionate to win friends and strengthen alliances. Adventures of the amorous kind might make the upcoming week memorable.

wolfgang puck’s kitchen Middle Eastern Fare Is Perfect For Your Summer Table By Wolfgang Puck As a chef who is fortunate to be well known, journalists often ask me my thoughts about hottest food trend of the moment. Over the years, I’ve shared my thoughts about everything from gourmet pizza and Asian fusion cuisine (two major trends in which I played a role) to authentic barbecue to kale to the keto diet. When questions have come lately about what’s exciting in the food world, an answer that comes more and more to mind is the rising popularity of Middle Eastern food. From Syria to Lebanon, Israel to Egypt, the Gulf States to Iran, contemporary yet authentic versions of these ancient culinary traditions are becoming as hot as the desert landscapes from which many of them arise. Some of the most in-demand reservations are for upscale places that bake their own pita and other traditional breads, make their own hummus dip from specially sourced chickpeas, toss exquisite salads of sun-ripened produce, grill marinated meats and seafood over open flames, and serve refreshing desserts that often sparkle with ruby-like pomegranate seeds. I find the food exquisite and exciting. And, when you look at it closely, it often isn’t that different from dishes many of us are already familiar with. The difference often comes from subtle ingredients and seasonings, such as intensely tart-sweet pomegranate molasses and the powerfully lemony spice called sumac. That taste exotic yet still somehow familiar, that you can find easily in Middle Eastern markets that might be near you and also buy online. For an introductory example of such dishes that are perfect for summertime dining, I’d like to share two recipes that have become popular on the menu of my Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, where Chef de Cuisine Dylan Hallas runs the kitchen. I’m talking about fattoush and herbed labneh. The names themselves may be unfamiliar to you, but you’ll recognize the dishes on your plate like they’re old friends. Fattoush is a traditional Syrian salad that gives new life to scraps of crunchy pita chips by pairing them with sun-ripened tomatoes and other vegetables, much like the Italian salad called panzanella does with leftover country bread. Labneh is a spreadable yogurt cheese made throughout the Middle East that is most like a very thick Greek yogurt, often seasoned as it is in Chef Hallas’ recipe and served as a dip or as an accompaniment to grilled fish along with the fattoush if you like. With peak-of-season tomatoes beginning to fill the markets right now, it’s the perfect time to make fattoush and its creamy companion. I hope you’ll try both of them soon and go on enjoying them through the end of the summer and beyond. FATTOUSH WITH SPICED LIME DRESSING Serves 4 SPICED LIME DRESSING: 1/4 cup (60 mL) freshly squeezed lime juice 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses 1 tablespoon ground sumac

1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground allspice 1 cup (250 mL) extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper FATTOUSH: 2 cups (500 mL) cherry tomatoes, stemmed and cut in halves 2 cups (500 mL) Persian cucumbers, sliced in half lengthwise and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch (12-mm) slices 1 cup (250 mL) purslane leaves or watercress, torn by hand into bite-sized pieces 1 cup (250 mL) coarsely crumbled store-bought pita chips 1/4 cup very coarsely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves 2 tablespoons very coarsely chopped fresh mint leaves 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion, green part only First, make the dressing. In a mixing bowl, combine the lime juice, pomegranate molasses, sumac, cumin and allspice, and whisk until evenly combined. Whisking continuously, pour in the olive oil in a thin, steady stream until fully incorporated. Season the dressing to taste with salt and pepper, and set aside. Before you plan to serve the salad, cut the cherry tomatoes in halves. In separate bowls, toss the tomatoes and cucumbers with a little salt and leave them to sit for a few minutes to release their juices a bit; then put the tomatoes and cucumbers with their juices into a mixing bowl. Just before serving, add to the mixing bowl the purslane, pita chips, parsley, mint and green onion. Lightly toss everything together. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the dressing, and toss the salad well. Sample a bite, and then keep adding and tossing with more dressing to taste: It should have a nice, strong edge of tart flavor. Transfer to serving plates or bowls, and add a dollop of labneh on the side. HERBED LABNEH Makes about 2 3/4 cups (435 mL) 2 cups plain whole-milk or low-fat plain labneh or Greek yogurt 1/2 cup (125 mL) extra-virgin olive oil 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill 1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onion, green part only 1 clove garlic, finely grated with a microplane or fine grater Zest of 1/2 lemon, finely grated with a microplane or fine grater Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Put the milk, labneh or yogurt in a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil, dill, green onion, garlic, and a little salt and pepper. Stir well. Taste, and adjust the seasonings with more salt and pepper as needed. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
