By Bob Vosseller JACKSON – New members of the land use boards were appointed during a recent Township Council meeting. The appointees named replace two members of the Zoning Board and one from the Planning Board whose resignations were due to their attendance at an advocacy group called Citizens United to Protect Our Neighborhood, (CUPON). The new members are Garnold Miller, who previously served as an alternate member and will now serve as a regular member of the Zoning Board of Adjustment, and Janine Kaunitz Fritch who joined the Zoning Board as alternate member number one. A third appointment is under review at this time as the appointee is unavailable. Miller’s term ends on June 30, 2023 while Fritch’s term will end on June 30, 2021 The Planning Board still has two vacancies to fill. Carl Book Jr. who served as the Zoning Board’s vice chairman has stepped up as that board’s chairman. The Township Council approves appointments for the Zoning Board while Mayor Michael Reina appoints members to the Township Planning Board. That board saw a vacancy when member Richard Egan resigned on Aug. 23. The three members resigned after word spread of their attendance at a CUPON meeting. CUPON is a grass-roots organization (Council - See Page 7)

Appointments Made, After Controversy
By Bob Vosseller JACKSON – Members of the governing body honored Blanche M. Krubner who was a longtime member of the Jackson Environmental Commission. According to the College of New Jersey’s alumni news, she served on the Jackson Environmental Commission and worked with the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commission and the U.S Environmental Pro-
tection Agency. She has also been involved with the Ocean County League of Women Voters, the Pinelands Preservation Alliance, and the Ocean County Environmental Agency. She taught social studies, geography, and economics for 28 years. Krubner was present for the meeting and received a proclamation from Councilman Alex Sauickie III. “Jackson was so lucky to have her dedication
for all those years,” Councilman Kenneth Bressi said. Councilman Andrew Kern remembered Krubner from her school teaching days. “I want to thank you for all you did and for teaching me social studies in 12th grade.” Council Vice President Barry Calogero commented “Ms. Krubner I thought I was a big shot serving on the Zoning Board for eight years.

Continued From Page 1 choreographer Geo, owner of the ICON Dance Complex in Englishtown. “Geo saw that he had some moves even then,” Justin’s mother added. His budding interest was nearly cut short when he was 4 years old and suffered a brain injury. He was in a car accident involving an impaired driver. “The doctors said at the time he should avoid contact sports. He was too little to have an MRI taken,” his mother said. Justin recovered and along with his dancing he enjoys playing baseball and other sports, plays the video game Fortnite and is a good student. “We’re proud of him for not only this but for his character. He has an old soul. He is kind, holds doors open for people and always waits to speak until the person talking to him is fi nished. He takes his dancing seriously but he also appreciates his family and friends,” his mother added. Justin is a 7th grade student of Christa McAuliffe Middle School. During a recent Township Council meeting, Council President Robert Nixon read a long list of accomplishments Justin earned as a hip-hop dancer. Nixon presented him with a Mayoral Proclamation on behalf of Mayor Michael Reina during the meeting which honored Justin’s being accepted into the International Dance Organization’s Olympic Hip Hop Team. Justin will be representing not only
Jackson, Ocean County and New Jersey but all of the United States. His mother added that sadly, he is performing not only for his country and community but in memory of his friend, Anthony Fontana. Anthony was a fellow Christa McAuliffe student and a friend. Anthony was fatally struck by a vehicle while he was riding his scooter on Sept. 30. Some of Justin’s awards have included fi rst place in the hip-hop division and fi rst place overall at the 2018 KAR Nationals in Connecticut 2018 where he led the pack of 50 dancers in the hip-hop category. He also took part in the Hollywood Day Parade with his fellow dance crew members of 34th and Phunk in Los Angeles which brought him to the attention of the producers of the CW network TV show “The Big Show.” The episode he was in aired in July. Justin was the lead dancer in the Icon Dance Complex Production “Next Level” earlier this year. His parents and sister will join him as he departs on Oct. 12 to compete in the International Dance Organization’s (IDO) Hip Hop Team at the IDO World Hip Hop Champions in Bremerhaven, Germany. Nixon said of Justin “when you have dedication, vision and will, your hard work pays off. This came true for Justin when he was asked to compete in Atlantic City for the Olympic Hip-Hop Team.” That audition yielded 75 fi nalists, in which Justin made the senior team of only 25 members. He was competing against dancers ranging from 13-18 years of age, making him
the youngest member of the team. “I’m pretty excited. I’ve never been to Germany before. I’ve never been out of the country before so this will be an exciting experience,” Justin said recently after a long day of dancing rehearsal at the ICON Dance Complex. Members of the governing body wished Justin the best of luck in Germany and all his future endeavors. “I know you have worked hard and we know you will make the town proud of you,” Councilman Ken Bressi said during the meeting. “Justin, this is an unbelievable accomplishment at your age; keep it going,” Councilman Alex Sauickie said.
Council Vice President Barry Calogero added, “What a great athlete, tremendous. In addition to thanking you I want to thank your parents, your siblings. The commitment that they demonstrate is just as good as what you do. Thank you very much.” “We see generationally so many great people in this community. Justin keep making us proud and thank you for representing our community well,” Nixon added. Justin has adopted the motto of the Patriot’s football team which is “Get the Job Done” and in relation to the dance competition which will run from Oct. 14-19, he said that is what he hopes to do.

You are truly an inspiration to all of us who serve.” Resident Denise Garner, who served on the township’s Environmental Commission for 16 years, sat beside her during the council meeting and spoke during the public comment period about what it was like working with her. Garner commended Krubner’s land use knowledge adding, “she helped me stand up against some of the most controversial
The Jackson Times, October 12, 2019, Page 5 applications that came before us. You provided a strong light and you left such a beautiful legacy.” During her emotional praise of Krubner, Garner was also critical of the current Environmental Commission saying “the commission is not as strong as it used to be. Now all I see is a rubber stamp. Let her legacy live, don’t let it die.” Krubner commented that she wanted to see the beauty of the community and clean potable water preserved in the township. Council President Robert Nixon agreed with K r ubner’s remarks saying, “it should always be our highest priority.”

OPINIONS & COMMENTARY E DITORIAL Make Local Changes Matter People are so angry at what’s going on in the world that they overlook the small, solvable problems just outside their door. People watch or read world news but not local news. Why is it that someone can say what’s going on in another country but they have no idea what’s going on in their ow n tow n? They can tell you the names of the movers and shakers in Washington, but couldn’t tell you the name of their own mayor. You might be wellversed in a national debate, but no one on the federal level cares what you think. You are just one voter. One drop of rain in the ocean. Your opinion on the national or international theater means nothing. Now, of course, if you are par t of a g reater
movement that is something. But Donald Trump or Phil Murphy aren’t going to listen to one solitary voter. On the contrar y, if you want to really affect change, start local. I’ve been to some council or board of education meetings where the only people in the audience are reporters. If you have a solution, if there’s a dangerous road, if the taxes are too high, if there are neighbors who are breaking township codes, t hese a re t he changes you can make. It’s a bit hypocritical of me because I can’t get out to my own town meetings as much as I would like, but I want to underscore the importance of getting involved in your own town.

Letters To The Editor Mayor Challenged To Debate My name is Laura Shaw. I am running for the office of Mayor of Berkeley Township. I am a lifelong resident of the Bayville section and this is my first time running for elected office. I am excited and humbled to be running for mayor in the town I grew up in. I have spent the last several months knocking on doors and meeting residents. It has been an enlightening and rewarding experience. I have three terrific running mates, also all first time candidates. We got into this race for all the right reasons; mainly to improve the qualit y of life in our hometown and keep it affordable to live here. I have a lot of ideas to achieve these goals and I would like to share them in a public setting, and cont rast them with our current mayor’s ideas and his eight year record. I have let it be known that I want to have a debate with our current mayor. I have challenged him to a debate on social media several times and have had no response. I think t he voters of Berkeley Township need and deserve to hear their elected officials and those seeking off ice present their platforms. Since I have not received any response to my previous overtures, I want to take this opportunity, in a public newspaper for all to see, to challenge Mayor Amato to a debate. I will comply with any format he wants to use; a moderator, a panel discussion, a voter Q&A. He can pick the date, the time and the location. I k now there are undecided voters in town who would find a mayoral debate to be helpf ul in making this very important decision. So what do you say, Mayor Amato? Shall we give the voters

Amato’s Leadership, Compassion Got Us Through Sandy I want to express my deep appre ciat ion t o Mayor Car men A mato for his assistance and leadership during Superstorm Sandy. On the 29th of this month, we will mark the 7th ann ive r sa r y si nce Sa ndy decimated our area. I was one of the unlucky ones, as I lost most of my home on that day. Many of my neighbors in Glen Cove, some in Good Luck Point and Berkeley Shores were also vict i ms of Sa ndy, losing everything. Before and during the storm, Mayor Amato kept us residents informed by sending out messages and automated calls. Immediately after the stor m, Mayor Amato personally went into the storm-ravaged areas with dozens of trucks and equipment with public works personnel to start the long clean-up process. T his clean-up was at no cost to any of the residents affected by Sandy. During the long twowe ek bla ckout , Mayor Amato coordinated with JCP&L to have free water and ice for area residents at the recreation center. He was there helping distribute it most evenings a n d we e ke n d s! M ayo r Amato also ordered 24hour police protection and command posts to protect the areas from criminals so only “US” residents had access to our dark neighborhoods. A few weeks later, Mayor A mato held publ ic i nformation seminars and wo r k s h o p s w it h SBA , FEM A, Red Cross and
groups to help and aid our residents in the rebuilding process. The Mayor sol icit e d a nd r e c eive d $200,000 from the Robin Ho o d Fou nd at ion t h at provided mini grants to homeowners. When the state and federal government finally allocated the Sandy Relief funding, it was Mayor Amato who took the ext raordi nar y steps to notify the affected residents of the grants that would be available and how to apply for them. A s P r e sid e nt of t h e Berkeley Township Taxpayers Coalition, I also want to commend Mayor Amato and the Council for the outstanding job they have done in keeping our Township affordable, despite the loss of tens of millions of dollars in retables during Superstorm Sandy. Berkeley Township has the SECOND lowest overall Proper t y Taxes in all of Ocean County, thanks to their hard work. Mayor Amato is running for re-election this year. I wanted to remind the residents of the extraordinary effort he put forth then, during the worst natural disaster to hit our area in my lifetime, and the effort he puts forth each and every day serving our community. Mayor Amato has ear ned my suppor t and I encourage you to vote for Mayor Amato and the entire the Amato Team on Column A.

The Corrupt Conservative Media A writer from Manchester talks about the corrupt liberal media, Fake news and silent majority (“Silent Majority Should Stand Up Vs. Media Bias,”
Let’s start with silent majority. Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million votes. That’s not a majority. His approval rating has never been even close to 50%. As far as being silent I don’t see that from Trump supporters. They are gener ally bu llies spew i ng false claims and they hate facts. On the fake news media that would apply to Fox News who constantly comes out with “alternate facts.” They have been caught over and over making false statements, taking statements out of context to change the meaning and many times outright lies. Their retractions are a lways af t e r m id n ig ht when most of their viewers are not watching. I remember one in particular during the controversy of football players kneeling during the National Anthem where they showed a photo of players from the Philadelphia Eagles k neeling stating it was during the anthem when is act ually was players praying before the game. They made a retraction in writing but never retracted it during the show it was broadcast. I never saw anything that blatant done on any other news show. And of course let’s not forget the King of Fake News Donald Trump himself, the man is pathological liar who gets caught several times a day making false or outrageous statements. Remember he went for two years saying President Obama was not born in the US and he was going to show indisputable proof. W hat ever hap pened to that proof? Fox News and Tr ump harassed Obama daily but I guess you forgot that. I thin k the eight abysmal years you are talking about were the Bush presidency. Joseph Marra Seaside Park
Continued From Page 1 formed to curb development. Accusations began to circulate through reports posted in The Lakewood Scoop shortly after the CUPON of Jackson and Manchester held its fi rst meeting on Aug. 15 at a Jackson fi rehouse. The Lakewood Scoop reported that Zoning Board Chairman Sheldon J. Hofstein, Joseph Sullivan and Egan had attended that meeting. According to that media outlet the meeting involved strategy discussions about how to counter proposed development plans involving the Orthodox Jewish community. Hofstein resigned on Aug. 26 while Sullivan and Egan resigned from their respective board positions on Aug. 23. Each were secretly recorded during the meeting and the sound clips from that meeting were posted to The Lakewood Scoop’s report. During a Sept. 10 Jackson Council meeting the three men said they had been asked to resign and singled out Councilman Kenneth Bressi in particular, saying he demanded their resignations. They in turn, demanded Bressi’s resignation during the council meeting and blasted the council for not hearing them out. Sul-
The Jackson Times, October 12, 2019, Page 7 livan asked that he, Egan and Hofstein be reinstated to their respective boards. Hofstein had served on the board for 11 years and his term would have ended in January 2020. Sullivan was an alternate member who recently became a full member and his term would have expired in January 2023. He also resigned from the township’s Rent Leveling Board. Egan’s resignation letter to Mayor Michael Reina from the Planning Board included his resignation from the Jackson Environmental Commission. Zoning Board Attorney Sean Gertner was quoted in The Asbury Park Press saying that for members of the board to attend a meeting where anti-development strategies are being discussed, potentially taints the outcome of any individual application and potentially adds to the possibility of future litigation. The attorney also suggested that Hofstein and Sullivan’s judgement could have come into question during future application hearings had they remained on the board. The Zoning Board approves/denies applications for land use applications that do not conform to the township’s master plan. The Planning Board approves/denies development projects that conform to the township’s master plan.
Prett y In Pink, Handsome In Blue Day Celebrates Lives of Those Affected by Cancer TOMS RIVER – For the last 18 years, the Ocean County Health Department selects a day in October to recognize the strong individuals touched by cancer by asking residents to wear something pink or blue. This year, Pretty in Pink, Handsome in Blue Day is set for Wednesday, October 16, 2019. “What started out as Pretty in Pink Day to recognize those with breast cancer, evolved to include all the brave individuals that have fought or are fighting any form of cancer,” explains Ocean County Freeholder Gerry P. Little, liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health. “Now we ask everyone to wear something pink or blue for the day to show your support.” The American Cancer Society estimated that in 2018, more than 53,000 New Jerseyans would be diagnosed with cancer and more than 16,000 would die from the disease. It’s estimated that a total of 606,880 Americans will succumb to cancer in 2019. The most common type of cancer? Breast cancer tops the list with more than 270,000 people expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year. “Just about everyone has a relative, friend, neighbor or co-worker that has been diagnosed with some form of cancer,” says Daniel E. Regenye, OCHD Public Health Coordinator. “That’s why we ask our residents to participate in Pretty in Pink, Handsome in Blue Day to keep our thoughts on all those individuals that have been affected by this terrible disease.” Pretty in Pink, Handsome in Blue is also about spreading awareness. The Ocean
County Health Department, and its community partners, encourages individuals to discuss with their health care provider potential cancer risks such as family cancer history. Learn more about when, why and how you can be tested for cancer. The earlier the detection the better chance to cure the disease. Cancer can strike anyone at any time, but individuals can help themselves by trying to live a healthy lifestyle by eating right, exercising and not smoking. “It’s a disease that does not discriminate. But the good news is there have been major advances in a variety cancer treatments over the last several years and people are living longer, added Regenye.” And on October 16 we will salute all the people that have had to struggle with cancer. Let them know you care by adding a little pink or blue to your wardrobe that day.” The Pretty in Pink Day, Handsome in Blue Day is sponsored by the Ocean County Health Department, Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Long Beach Island Health Department, Family Planning Center of Ocean County, Ocean Monmouth Health Alliance, Ocean County Library System and NJ CEED Program. To find out more about Pretty in Pink and Handsome in Blue Day, please visit the OCHD website at ochd.org or follow us on Twitter@OCpublichealth or on Facebook.

Spooky But Safe: Officials Urge Caution As Halloween Approaches
By Kimberly Bosco OCEAN COUNTY – As spooky season descends upon Ocean County, officials are working to ensure that the only Halloween scares residents see are the fun kind. “As Halloween approaches I again ask that our children, parents and drivers pay special attention to safety so everyone can enjoy a safe and spooky holiday,” Freeholder Joseph Vicari said. Vicari reminds parents to check in on the Megan’s Law website to be aware of any potential sex offenders that may live in your neighborhood, or neighborhoods where children may be trick-or-treating for candy. “This only takes a few minutes and can make a big difference in keeping a child safe,” Vicari said. The Megan’s Law website provides a database of up-to-date information on all convicted sex offenders who are residents of New Jersey. Towns, counties, zip codes and even individual streets can be easily reviewed. The database can be accessed through a link on the Ocean County Government Homepage at co.ocean.nj.us. In addition, Vicari suggests opting for face makeup over a mask for your Halloween costume, as masks can obstruct a child’s vision making it difficult for them to see oncoming traffic. “Wear light-colored clothing or add reflective tape to darker costumes,” he added. “Always carry a flashlight at night.”
When trick-or-treating, young children should be accompanied by an adult and older children should travel in groups for their safety, Vicari added. “Make sure trick-or-treaters know to only approach familiar houses that have outside lights on and never enter a stranger’s home or vehicle,” he said. After bringing home your Halloween candy haul, parents should inspect all treats before letting kids consume them. Vicari also reminds everyone to never eat candy that has been opened already. As the Halloween season gets on, residents will of course be shopping around for that perfect costume. Vicari encourages residents to purchase their Halloween costumes at a reputable business in Ocean County. “It’s important to check every costume for a flame retardant label,” said Vicari. “Some cheap or counterfeit costumes may not be safe to wear.” Lastly, motorists are advised to pay special attention when driving on Halloween. According to federal statistics, children are four times more likely to be struck by an automobile on Halloween than on any other night of the year. “In the excitement of the day, trick-ortreaters probably won’t be paying attention to passing motor vehicles, so slow down and drive cautiously,” he said. Before heading out for nighttime trickor-treating, stop by the annual Toms River Halloween Parade on October 31.
Food Safety During Power Outage
As the USDA notes in Keeping Food Safe During an Emergency, your refrigerator will keep food safe for up to 4 hours during a power outage. Keep the door closed as much as possible. Discard refrigerated perishable food such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and leftovers after 4 hours without power.
After a power outage, never taste food to determine its safety. You will have to evaluate each item separately—use this chart as a guide. When in Doubt, Throw it Out! For information on which foods to keep or toss, visit foodsafety.gov/food-safety-charts/ food-safety-during-power-outage.

County Prepared To Service Pets With Disaster Relief
By Kimberly Bosco OCEAN COUNTY — According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, over a third of US households are also home to a furry companion. In Ocean County, many local families have dogs or cats they consider part of the family. In an effort to service both humans and animals in the event of an emergency, Ocean County has become the newest member of the AKC Pet Disaster Relief program. AKC Reunite is the largest non-profit pet identification and recovery service provider in the United States. Their national program, AKC Pet Disaster Relief, is dedicated to keeping pets and their owners safe in response to natural or civil disasters. In collaboration with local American Kennel Club dog clubs and dog lovers, AKC Reunite presented an emergency trailer to the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office. The AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer will be available to dispatch to any disaster scene that needs assistance sheltering pets. “We are beyond grateful to AKC Reunite and the Kennel Club of Philadelphia for providing us with this life-saving tool for our community,” said Kevin Cooney of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office. “Our department is now better equipped to help pets and pet owners in the case of a disaster.” In the event of an emergency, the AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers create a safe, temporary home for at least 65 pets during the first 72 hours after a disaster is declared. Inside the trailers you will find essential animal care items including
FREE RABIES CLINIC
crates and carriers, AKC Reunite microchips, an AKC Reunite universal microchip scanner, bowls, collars, leashes, fans, lighting and a generator, cleaning supplies and maintenance items. These supplies can be used as co-location shelters, where people can evacuate with their pets, as well as emergency animal shelters for displaced animals. “This is the 76th trailer donated through the AKC Pet Disaster Relief program. The trailer will provide critical resources to help the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office quickly assist its community when responding to natural disasters,” said Tom Sharp, AKC Reunite CEO. “Safe, effective pet sheltering solutions are important following a disaster, and we are pleased that an AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer will be available to the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office as a vital tool.” A generous donation of $100,000, courtesy of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia, funded the purchase of the OCSD’s new trailer. While Ocean County was the first, the donations funds will continue to provide trailers to eight other counties throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. “Our association is thrilled to be able to bring such an important resource like the AKC Pet Disaster Relief Trailer to the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office,” said Wayne Ferguson, President of the Kennel Club of Philadelphia. “The trailer will help the organization assist their community in times of disaster”.

5 Tips To Keep Your Technology Going Strong Does hearing technology call for ongoing professional upkeep? Can I handle any needed maintenance at home? How can I tell whether my devices are damaged? Where can I take them for replacement or repair? Much like today’s tablets and cell phones, hearing aids are powered by complex technology that may require professional attention in certain circumstances, but a little DIY maintenance can go a long way in keeping your devices in top shape. Read on for five simple tips to maximize your tech’s longevity. Keep ’Em Dry and Sanitized: Water is kryptonite to hearing aids, so remember to remove them before showering or swimming, and use a hearing aid dryer or dehumidifier not only to reduce moisture but to sanitize and store your technology at the same time. Wipe Off the Wax: Earwax (also called cerumen) naturally accumulates in the ear and on your hearing aid, but gently wiping your devices each night with a soft, dry cloth and clearing the part of the device that goes into your ear canal with the provided tooth brush will make quick work of the buildup. Check the Batteries: Batteries typically can last from a few days to a couple weeks
depending on the technology, usage, and other factors, but a constantly beeping hearing aid may mean the batteries need changing. Always keep spares on hand, and remember to remove and store batteries at room temperature apart from your hearing aids when not wearing them. Ask for a “battery caddy.” Replace the Wax Guard: Put your hearing aid’s wax guard — which helps protect against the damaging accumulation of wax, skin particles, and debris — on a monthly change schedule. Also, if your technology isn’t functioning properly even with fresh batteries, it may be time to change the wax guard. Skip the Pockets: Pockets seem naturally convenient for carrying loose hearing aids and batteries while on the go, but not so fast! Keep your devices in their case to avoid losing or getting debris on them, and place batteries where they won’t come into contact with keys, coins, and other metals, which can cause battery discharge and other problems. Self-care of your hearing aids is an important part of keeping them performing their best, and periodic clean and checks with our caring professionals will identify and address any damage or other problems that might otherwise be harder to spot.

H ERE ’ S T O Y OUR H EALTH Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.
B Vitamin Deﬁciency Apparent In The Potty By Suzy Cohen, R. Ph.
When you think of B complex, you probably think of it as one B vitamin, but “B Complex” refers to a group of B vitamins consisting of B1, B2, B3, B6 and others. The B Complex available as a dietary supplement is intended to fill a nutrient gap that some people develop from malnutrition. This is fine, however most people can eat their way to better B status. The concerns about B vitamin deficiency are frequently overlooked by the most caring practitioners. Remember, the mindset in today’s atrocious health care system is to medicate you, so you’re bound to get a drug for a symptom, even if that symptom stems from a nutrient deficiency! But that’s what you have me for, I have written articles for 20 something years to help you identify nutrient depletion and proper ways of restoration. Here are some signs and symptoms of B deficiency: Fatigue, anemia, diarrhea, hypothyroidism, burning mouth, nerve pain, memory issues, depression, vision/hearing difficulty, hair loss, confusion, agitation and numbness. Do you have a lot of those? One thing that leads to B vitamin deficiency is being a fussy eater. There’s a new case study about a boy who was so fussy about his food that all he ate was fries, white bread, potato chips, slices of ham and sometimes sausage. Perhaps you know a child or adult who has a limited diet? According to the case study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the teenager impacted his hearing and vision. So profound was his B12 deficiency,
injections of it could not save his sight. As adults, B deficiencies could be even more profound due to the oxidative oxidative damage that occurs from drinking alcohol, smoking and taking medicines which deplete B vitamins. Medications that are known to lower B vitamins include oral contraceptives, blood pressure pills, metformin, antibiotics and acid blockers. The first sign of B12 deficiency could be apparent in the potty. I’m referring to diarrhea or loose stools. If you suddenly have this problem, and it’s not related to food poisoning or antibiotic use, then consider a B vitamin deficiency. A balanced diet will give you the full range of B vitamins, so don’t worry if you eat eggs, vegetables, salad, fruits, chicken, seafood, red meat, dairy and nuts. If you have a limited diet for some reason, and you decide to supplement, buy a B complex that offers the B nutrients in their body-ready, biologically active form. For example, “methylfolate,” not folic acid, and “pyridoxal phosphate,” not pyridoxine. Most people don’t realize that some of the most important B vitamins are manufactured in the GI tract by our own microflora (probiotics help restore healthy microflora). So a deficiency in biotin, B12 and other B’s could indicate that you’ve stripped your gut of healthy probiotics. This contributes to the diarrhea, or for some, constipation alternating with diarrhea. If you have pins/needles or neuropathy, or you take the medication metformin, then B vitamins are essential for you.

January is the time to consider whether to appeal your residential real estate taxes. This article will address some of the most commonly asked questions about tax appeals. The most important thing to understand about real estate tax appeals is what you can and cannot appeal. Under New Jersey law, you can only appeal that the assessment for your property is in excess of the property’s fair market value. The assessment is the municipality’s determination as to the value of your property. This determination is sent to each taxpayer around February 1 of each year in the form of a post card identifying the property and the current assessment. It is equally important to know what you cannot appeal. You cannot appeal the following: (1) the amount of taxes which you have to pay; (2) whether you can afford to pay the taxes; (3) that another person is paying less taxes than you; and (4) that the assessment of another property is less than yours. Thus, the local County Tax Board can only hear appeals that the property’s assessment is greater than its fair market value. The municipal tax assessment is entitled to a presumption that it is correct. It is up to the taxpayer to prove that the assessment is excessive. To do this, the taxpayer must present evidence to the Tax Board as to the correct fair market value of the property. This evidence
Robert C. Shea Esq.
should be in the form of sales of compara- Marc S. Galella Esq. ble properties which occurred on or before October 1 of the year prior to the filing of the appeal. Since most people do not know how to obtain comparable sales, it is best to hire a State licensed or certified real estate appraiser to prepare an appraisal showing the comparable sales. The appraisal must be filed with the Tax Board no later than one week prior to the tax appeal hearing date. The appraiser should also be at the hearing to present the appraisal. In most cases all tax appeals must be filed no later than April 1 of each year. However, the appeal deadline may be earlier or later. It is best to check with the town as to the filing deadline. The filing deadline is strictly enforced and the failure to file by the deadline will result in the appeal being dismissed. Taxpayers seeking to file appeals should begin the process as soon as they receive the assessment card from the tax assessor. Because the laws and procedures regarding tax appeals are complicated, it is a good idea to retain the services of an attorney to assist you in filing and pursuing the appeal. R. C. Shea and Associates has a long history of obtaining reductions in tax assessments for our clients.

She’s Got Happy Feet And He’s Got Cold Feet
Dear Joel, My husband is a charming man. He’s faithful and loves people, but when we go to parties and he hears music, he’s turns into a dancing machine. The problem is I’m not. He dances with everyone… young or old, family or friends even kids. Am I wrong to feel a little jealous when he’s dancing with other women? I’ll admit I have two left feet, but how should I deal with my resentment? Answer I’ll bet there are some women who are a little jealous of you. Most men hate dancing which may just be why your husband is so popular. I know it’s hard to sit on the sidelines, but what is really disturbing you? Are you afraid he’s flirting or that
he is having a better time than you? Try enjoying his performances. You have a very rare thing, a husband who likes dancing. Some people bring their prize winning recipes to parties; you instead bring a dancing partner for all with you, which makes you very popular too. Look at your husband like he’s a bestselling book at the library; everyone shares and enjoys it and in the end, it winds back up at home. Write to email@example.com. His radio show, “Preferred Company” airs on Monday through Friday from 8 to 10 a.m. on preferredradio. com and 1160 & 1310 WOBM-AM

AROUND THE JERSEY SHORE Hearing Discusses How We Can Protect NJ Schools Better By Kimberly Bosco WASHINGTON, DC – On Sept. 26, Director Jared M. Maples of the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (NJOHSP) testified as part of the hearing, “Engaging the Community: Perspectives on School Security,” to discuss Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery in our schools. The hearing was meant to provide updates
on a variety of measures and initiatives by NJOHSP and its partners to protect students and staff throughout New Jersey. “The safety of our children and those charged with their care are paramount,” said Maples. “We must do all that is necessary to provide students and staff with a sense of comfort and security in their learning environments, and parents and guardians deserve the peace of mind that their children will
return to them at the end of the school day. Governor Murphy’s administration remains committed to combining all State resources to continue achieving that goal.” In an effort to stay ahead of the curve, the NJOHSP conducts trainings for school personnel and the community on how to recognize and report suspicious activity. An ongoing focus in NJOHSP’s efforts is expanding security, with particular emphasis on mass gatherings; understanding common vulnerabilities of these areas and events where large numbers of people gather; and ensuring that everyone, including schoolchildren, know what actions to take if they face emergency situations. “Like many Americans, I am heartbroken by the alarming cycle of violent acts taking place in our nation’s schools. My subcommittee’s hearing was an opportunity for stakeholders, like the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, to
discuss ongoing challenges in school safety and provide critical feedback to Congress,” said US Representative Donald M. Payne Jr. (NJ-10). “I appreciate Director Maples’ testimony before the subcommittee, as it gave Congress a better understanding of the complex challenges our state faces in protecting New Jerseyans. I look forward to continuing to work with Director Maples to ensure that New Jersey’s students can focus on being students.” Kathy Martinez-Prather, Director of the Texas School Safety Center; Lauren Hogg, survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, and co-founder of March For Our Lives; and Max Schachter, father of slain Parkland victim Alex Schachter, also testified before the Subcommittee. For more information, contact NJOHSP’s Communications Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

wolfgang puck’s kitchen Mashed Sweet Potatoes With A Little Spice And Zest By Wolfgang Puck ROASTED SPICED SWEET POTATO PUREE WITH ORANGE ZEST Serves 4 to 6 3 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and cut crosswise into rounds 1/2 inch (12 mm) thick 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1-inch (2.5-cm) piece fresh ginger root, peeled and cut into 4 pieces 1 whole cinnamon stick 1 cup (250-ml) good-quality low-sodium chicken stock or vegetable stock Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper Finely grated zest of 1 orange 1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (optional) 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Set the rack in the middle of the oven. Put the sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss them until evenly coated. Spread the sweet potatoes in a roasting pan. Evenly scatter the ginger and cinnamon pieces among the
potatoes. Pour in the stock. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the pan with aluminum foil. Place the covered roasting pan in the oven. Roast the sweet potatoes until they are tender enough to be pierced easily with a fork, about 45 minutes, very carefully opening a corner of the foil away from you to avoid the steam. When the sweet potatoes are done, remove the pan from the oven and set it aside on the stovetop for about five minutes. Carefully remove the foil. Pick out and discard the pieces of ginger and cinnamon stick. While the potatoes are still hot, use a potato masher to mash the potatoes until they are as chunky or smooth as you like. Sprinkle in the orange zest and stir well. If you’d prefer a richer flavor, add butter to taste, stirring to incorporate it as it melts. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed with a little more salt and pepper. Transfer the mashed sweet potatoes to a heated serving bowl or individual serving plates. Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
