First Presbyterian Church Of Hanover Prepares For 300th Birthday


By Steve Sears andwiched between busy Route 10 and Hanover Road in East Hanover is a structure out of the past, a house of restful serenity

still amid a realm of busyness. First Presbyterian Church of Hanover, whose congregation had its beginnings back in Whippany in 1718, still celebrates

Sunday services at 10:30 a.m. with a small but faithful community. And on October 7 the congregation will celebrate its 300th anniversary. “The 300th immediately leads us to realize that the church has been around since well before the foundation of our nation,” says Reverend Jin Han, pastor since 2010. “The history of this church permits us glimpses of colonial times when many things we take for granted were not readily available. “The church witnessed the sacrifice of many for the nation and the peace of the world in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World I, and World II,” he continued.

“The 300th anniversary testifies to the constant care with which families have been raised in faith. Children grew up and went forth from here to

different parts of the country and the world to carry the love of God they have experienced in this place. The church that stands today at East Ha-

Planning Board Approves New Housing In Florham Park

By Jason Cohen he Florham Park Planning Board approved plans for the construction of a 425-unit age-restricted residential community last month, helping it partially satisfy the state mandated obligation for affordable housing. On March 12, the board gave the go ahead for construction of a project known as Del Webb at Florham Park, located at 86 Park Avenue. As part of the board’s approval, 18 of the units will be marketed as low and moderate income and will be available to individuals ages 55 and over. According to Carmen Cefolo-Pane, the borough council president and liaison to the planning board, the community will be located on a 72-acre tract that was earmarked for residential use as part of the General Development Plan (GDP) undertaken by the Rockefeller Group over a decade ago. It will be built in three phases and consist of 109 single

family homes, 136 townhomes and 180 condominium units, 18 of which will be affordable housing units. There will be a 15,000 square foot clubhouse that will have an indoor and outdoor pool, a kitchenette and an outdoor game area. There will also be a lifestyle director on staff that will organize clubs and trips. “The project is designed to be coordinated with a construction project for supportive and special needs housing that will help satisfy the affordable housing obligation of the overall residential project,” Cefolo-Pane said. “The two projects are linked in that the affordable units must be ready as the market rates become available, per state regulations. Simultaneous construction is expected.” Marlene Rawson, board secretary for the planning and zoning board of adjustment told the “Florham Park News” the developer of this adult community will likely hire an indepen-

dent administrative agency who will qualify individuals for eligibility as per state requirements. Rawson said she does not have a timeline as to when these units will become available. Providing affordable housing is a state mandate for all municipalities. Other sites in the borough that have a certain number of units set aside for affordable

housing include Sun Valley, Riverbend and Ward Place. The development will be part of the Green at Florham Park development on Park Avenue, which also includes the New York Jets practice facility, a hotel, the North American headquarters of BASF and Summit Medical Group’s Florham Park campus.

First Presbyterian Church... continued from front page the 300th birthday began at a coffee hour meeting in September 2017, according to Sandra Mackowiak, chairperson of Worship and Music. “Some were a little hesitant of what can we do, but some spoke up as they agreed we should do something,” says Mackowiak. The first congregation was established and met along the Whippany (then Whippanong) River, but then moved to the current spot. In 1755, Hanover Church was rebuilt and lasted for 80 years. In 1835, that structure was torn down and, using wood from the dismantled church building and oak tree cuttings, the current house of worship was built. It sits proudly upon a tiny hill, overlooking the neighborhood. Mackowiak adds that the special celebration involves

his family or a personal representative has even been invited to attend. Mackowiak concludes with a final thought regarding any special happenings leading up to October. “I can’t give away what I have as surprises because it has to be such to make the occasion so special for so many important details. “Someone reminded me it was going to be 300 years and I knew that I had to get the ball rolling!” she says. “We had one more meeting after that and it was agreed we should do something to celebrate.” A luncheon is set to be held on October 7 at the Hanover Manor following that day’s church service. East Hanover Mayor Joe Pannullo has said he’d be pleased to do anything he can to aid the celebration. President Donald Trump and

Florham Park Rotary Gifts Dictionaries To Local Youth


hird graders at the Brooklake Elementary School received the gift of reading on Friday, March 16. Members of the Florham Park Rotary, escorted by Principal Steven Caponegro, personally presented each student in the third grade classrooms with their own dictionary. Rotarians Bob Feid, a 25-year member, Mayor Mark Taylor and President Peter Nicolas presented

the dictionaries to the students. As in previous years, the students were encouraged to write their names below the line, “This Dictionary Belongs to.” One difference this year was that Nicolas, being a Learning and Development director, requested that students search in their dictionaries for the assigned word of the day, “habit.” He remarked that students quickly found the word, with a volunteer in each

Another student pointed out the longest English word was in their dictionary. They found it on page 373 and it was 1,909 letters, which

The Temptation To Temp - A Job For All Seasons


By Ricki Demarest verybody needs a paycheck. Sometimes, whether one just graduated or is still in college, been recently laid off or had a life changing event – a job is a must. Becoming a temporary employee, or “temp,” can provide a solution. According to the American Staffing Association website, around 15 million people a year are hired as temporary and contract workers in the United States. In 2016, approximately 417,000 were in New Jersey. Nearly half of them claimed that it was a good way to get to a full-time job. One third of those workers were offered a full-time job while on assignment. Nine out of 10 agreed that temping was a viable way to become more employable. Temporary workers have the power to select their assignments and match their skills to a position that may or

may not become a full-time situation. Temping or “project work” also looks better on a resume than simply having long stretches of unemployment. Learning new skills while on assignment makes one a stronger candidate for future positions. Staffing agencies that manage contract workers vary in size from national or international firms with local offices to smaller organizations that focus on an industry or skill. Finding the right agency depends on matching skills and experience with the right agency. For instance, those who have worked in the corporate world may be the right fit for a large firm that offers general office help. Those with specific skills, may need to look a little harder. The easiest way to find an agency is by asking people who have used nearby offices and by checking those websites.

One of the many firms that place temporary workers is TeleSearch Staffing Solutions, which has offices throughout New Jersey. Kim Carsillo, the Flanders office branch described her company as “a large full-service placement firm.” In a recent interview, Carsillo outlined the process by which candidates are screened. Carsillo said that a recruiter will first interview a prospective candidate, who also completes paperwork and computerized assessments. Background and reference checks are part of the process. Then workers are matched with assignments. Workers who are placed, she noted, are employees of her agency not the companies where they are working. TeleSearch pays temp workers on a weekly basis, taking and tax and necessary deductions from the gross amount.

Being realistic about one’s skill level and showcasing work experience makes it easier to place a candidate. “If you’re looking to re-enter the work force as an administrative assistant you will want to make sure that your typing and software skill are up to industry standards…companies are hiring because they need someone to easily transition into their environment,” said Carsillo. TeleSearch does welcome everyone regardless of work experience and criteria. “We are able to find work for a wide variety of skill sets. We look for people who have recent work history, good references and willingness to work. The main thing all companies want are hardworking and reliable employees.” She stressed that her company offers free training for those who want to upgrade their office skills.

continued from page 10 companies do want specific criteria in their candidates. For instance, college degrees are desirable in the corporate sector. Fork lift and computer skills are often requested for light industrial work. Some employment agency blog posts discuss what qualities will make a company take notice of, and possibly hire, a temporary worker for a fulltime position. The Liberty Staffing Company blog stresses punctuality, reliability, excellent communication skills and ability to adapt to new demands. The Robert Half International Inc. staffing agency is the umbrella agency that hires personnel for industries as diverse as finance, marketing and the law. The idea that agencies only hire entry level people or that temp work makes a job search impossible are fallacies, according to its recent post. Temp work offers

flexible schedules and a way for individuals to build their networks by meeting new people in the workplace. If searching for an agency, keep in mind that viable ones are licensed by the state of New Jersey’s Department of Consumer Affairs. Agency branch offices register and are members of their local Chambers of Commerce. Although it’s common knowledge, it’s worth repeating that one should never have to pay any kind of a fee for the promise of a job nor divulge any financial information. If unsure, check whether there are any complaints against an agency through local consumer protection agencies or the NJ State Attorney General’s Office. The opportunities for temporary workers are many and varied. By protecting and pushing oneself, increase permanent prospects with a temporary gig.

5 Ways To Refresh Your Home For Spring

pring is a time for renewal and awakenings. It’s also the perfect time to take your cues from Mother Nature and devise a plan to reduce and reimagine your way to a refreshing, updated home you can fully enjoy once more. Reorganize cluttered areas If a room (or rooms) in your house are in disarray, start by reorganizing those often-used spaces to give them a likenew look and feel. Begin by removing everything from the room - including the furniture, if you’re able - and separate your belongings into boxes or piles based on what you plan to put back in the room, move to another location and throw away or donate. Once you’ve cleaned the space, resituate the necessary furniture then place items you’re keeping back in their places in tidy fashion so they’re easy to locate. Eliminate the extras While you’re freshening up the house, it’s the perfect time to purge unwanted and unused items, but remember that items in good condition can actually do good for those in need. By donating clothing, electronics, furniture, household goods and vehicles to be sold in The Salvation Army Family and Thrift Stores, you can help transform lives in your local community. A good rule of thumb: if you haven’t used it in the last year and it doesn’t have special sentimental value, it’s probably time to let it go. Get rid of grime A whole season’s worth

of dirt and dust accumulates during the cold winter months. A deep clean inside and out can restore your home to its former glory. Inside, take time to launder all of your linens, including curtains, rugs and bedding. Move furniture to vacuum behind and below, and don’t overlook dust and dirt magnets like mirrors, light fixtures and the insides of cabinets, especially higher shelves that see infrequent use. Outdoors, hose off or power-wash surfaces like windows, siding, decks and concrete to restore a crisp, clean appearance. Revise for real life If there’s an area of your home that isn’t quite working for your lifestyle, spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to make a change. That may mean reconfiguring furniture for a more functional living room or converting an underused guest room into a useful craft or project space. Take time to consider what changes will make the space more practical, and even sketch out some possibilities on paper to finetune your ideas before you get to work. Discover new decor A spring refresh is about more than just decluttering and cleaning, it’s about giving new life to your home with new decor, accessories and artwork. One affordable option: seek out unexpected treasures by shopping for great bargains at thrift stores. The proceeds from the sale of items found at shops like The Salvation

Leaders, Students Honor Dr. King


ssex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr., along with elected officials community leaders and students from the Essex County Newark Tech Campus shared what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., means to them during a ceremony to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his assassination April 4. “Dr. King was one of our nation’s greatest leaders and one of his last public appearances was his visit to Newark, just a week before he was taken from us,” DiVincenzo said. “His message of hope, peace and equality has resonated throughout the decades and inspired generations - and is just as poignant and relevant today as it was in 1968. Remembering his contributions and laying a wreath at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Statue in front of the Essex County Hall of Records is

a fitting tribute to an individual whose guidance and foresight impacted our nation.” “I am a little conflicted because today is the anniversary of Dr. King’s death,’’ said State Senator and Deputy Chief of Staff Teresa Ruiz. “But this is an opportunity to take back the negativity and celebrate a life that was taken away from us too early.” “Dr. King taught us that our fight for justice has to be stronger than our enemies’ anger,” Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said. “Today we are commemorating his assassination, but we are also celebrating the sacrifice he made for all of us.” Deputy Chief of Staff William Payne talked about the various times he met Dr. King when the minister visited Newark. “I saw him at an event at Abyssinian Church in Newark

relations, I believe his message for my generation should transcend to other areas, including gender equality, religious tolerance, LGBT advocacy, immigration, and gun control. Collectively, we seek to create a world where man or woman, regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation, can be viewed and respected as an equal.” The Essex County Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Statue was dedicated in October 2015.

and said ‘I’ll see you next time’ as he was leaving,’’ Payne said. “The next time I saw him was at his funeral. Dr. King’s legacy needs to be known and understood by everyone, because we all have an obligation to continue his work.” “Dr. King has taught me to be a dreamer, an activist, and to dare to be someone who thinks outside the box,’’ said Newark Tech senior Abbey Lawrence. “While there are still great strides to be made in our country regarding race

f cooler weather has you longing for sunny days outdoors, take heart. Once spring rolls around, you can safely begin the annual cleanup to prepare your yard for months of warm-weather enjoyment. Start by evaluating your lawn. Look for bald spots where grass has grown sparsely and needs reseeding, or uneven areas that may need to be filled and leveled. Before you take steps to correct any problems, you’ll need a clean slate. Clear the yard of any leaves, rocks or sticks that may have accumulated then cut the grass as short as you can. Use a thatching rake to remove dead roots and grass. Break up the soil in bare spots to create an environment that will be hospitable to new seed. Add lawn soil to level the surface. You’ll also need to apply an

herbicide to treat weed-infested areas. Allow the weed killer to work for about a week then rake again to remove dead weeds. Then you’re ready to overseed or spot seed, depending on your lawn’s needs. Your climate will determine the best grass variety for your yard. Be sure to select and apply a fertilizer that is consistent with your grass type and water thoroughly to promote deep root growth, which can help your lawn withstand extreme conditions as temperatures rise. Your lawn isn’t the only part of your yard that needs attention during the spring months, though. Your garden and flower beds may need some care before they, too, are ready to burst with new bounty and color. Begin by clearing your garden and beds of any debris like

leaves and other matter that piled up during months of neglect. Gently turn the soil and work in fresh fertilizer. Before your plants and flowers are in full-growth mode is the ideal time to make repairs. Check edging for any damage, replace rotted woodwork and complete any other maintenance tasks. As for the plants, prune before the first buds sprout to minimize stress. You can also

start indoor seeds, and early spring is the time to divide perennials and plant some hardier vegetables, such as onions and potatoes. The warmer months may still seem far away, but getting some of your lawn and garden care underway now can make those warmer, sunny days feel closer in no time.
