MOPD Head Back To School To Teach Model Programs

he Mt. Olive Township Police Department will once again be heading into elementary school classrooms and teaching students to live safe, healthy drug-free lives. Local police officers will be teaching L.E.A.D. (Law Enforcement Against Drugs) and the Too Good for Drugs and Violence Curriculum. The lessons in the program introduce and review a series of skills to prepare children to make healthy choices and resist unhealthy behaviors in life; including bullying, alcohol, and drug use. The model, Too Good for Drugs, is backed by both state’s law enforcement and educational leaders. Introduced last school semester at Tinc Road School,


the program will now be taught district-wide starting this school year after receiving positive feedback by both the school and the students. Chief Stephen Beecher said, “We have six trained officers who will be teaching this program. The officers are Sergeant Mase, Corporal Russell, and Officers Braikovich, Grimm, Elbaum, and Sciscione. These officers will be attending Back to School Night at the elementary schools to introduce themselves to school staff and parents.” The Program Director for L.E.A.D, Corporal Russell said "The officers selected to teach this program, as well as myself, are excited for the opportunity to interact with the youth of the township and to teach a program that pro-

motes positive attitudes and choices. I grew up in Mt. Olive Township and remember the drug-free curriculum having a positive effect on my life. I believe that a direct relationship between the schools, parents, and community, that this curriculum can provide; gives kids the opportunity to adopt a positive, healthy mind set which can remain with them throughout their lives. Beecher added, “We believe that the program will also allow officers and the youth of the community to interact in a more fun and relaxed atmosphere and strengthen the existing bond between law enforcement and the community. We appreciate the support of the schools, mayor and town council in bringing this program forward.”

Dunking Teachers At Fall Festival Highlights The Day

By Cheryl Conway any students, families, teachers and staff gathered at Tinc Rd. School in Flanders last month for some good old fashioned fun. Held Sat., Sept, 24, from noon to 3 p.m., the Fall Family Festival is held annually to not only gather families but to raise money for the fifth grade field trip. This year’s event raised

about $1,700, according to Leigh Cohen, co-chair of this year’s festival. “The festival raises money for the fifth grade class field trip to Jefferson Lake at the end of the year,” says Cohen. The festival has been held for the past 18 years. Another parent, Alexandra Weinckowski helped Cohen organize this year’s fair along with a group of

fifth grade parents. Some special guests included Dr. Richard Fair, Tinc Rd. School principal, as well as Dr. Larrie Reynolds, Mt. Olive superintendent of schools. “We had a variety of activities for the students and their families to enjoy,” describes Cohen. “Some require the purchase of tickets, but there were also a number of free things to do. Many small games are set up on the blacktop for the kids to play that are run by fifth grade students. We also had a few of the fifth grade girls doing face painting and temporary tattoos. “There was a slingshot which was new this year where kids could shoot tennis balls at a target,” continues Cohen. “The two

favorite attractions are pumpkin chuckin' and the dunk tank. These require the purchase of tickets. Staff members from the school generously donate their time to sit in the dunk tank. This year we had two teachers, Brittany VanHouten and Samantha Darnesto and two members of the custodial staff, Mr. Mark and Mr. Steve.” In addition to games, many local restaurants donated food for people to purchase such as pretzels, pasta dishes, hotdogs, cupcakes and more, adds Cohen. There was no admission fee and the fair included many free activities for families to participate. Certain attractions such as the dunk tank and the pumpkin

chuckin' did require the purchase of tickets. Each ticket had a $1 value and could be used for games or food. “Watching the fifth graders participate in the fundraiser by helping set up, running games and face painting was a lot of fun to

watch, especially for those of us who's kids will be leaving Tinc this year, but I think the highlight, as it is every year, is seeing the kids and their excitement at getting a chance to dunk their favorite teacher!” concludes Cohen.

Local Expert Shows NJ Parents How To Get The Most Money For Their Children’s College Education


ew Jersey parents suffering with finding ways to pay for their children’s college education can finally get the solutions to their college funding problems. Most families who earn $75,000 or more and own a home assume they are not eligible for financial aid. However, most families with income over $100,000 are actually eligible for some types of “need based” financial aid. They simply need to know how to get their fair share. According to Newell, there are several easy things parents can do to substantially increase the amount of money they get from colleges. For example, “There are several schools that historically give better financial aid packages than others,” says Newell. “If families do proper income and asset planning before filling out the forms, they can increase eligibility by thousands of dollars.” Newell offers a few simple tips to parents with college funding problems. “If a parent

has only half an hour to end their college funding problems, I would suggest the following: 1. Make sure they do not over-value their home on the financial aid forms. 2. Try not to save money in the child’s name as it weighs more heavily than the parent’s savings. 3. Don’t be afraid to negotiate with a college for a better financial aid package. Newell offers New Jersey parents with college funding problems a free booklet that explains the 9 most common college funding problems and solutions. Free copies will be distributed at the seminar listed below. Mr. Newell will be conducting a free onehour seminar for parents of college bound high school juniors and seniors at the following location: The Mt. Olive Public Library, on Tues., Oct. 25 from 7pm to 8pm. Reservation only! Seating is limited. Reserve your seat today by calling toll free 1-800-9288464.

Sarah Borges, Mef & Angela Highlight Vasa Show Nov. 13

arah Borges is one of those rare talents - someone who not only can rip it up on stage, but also has the charisma to relate directly to her audience. She is musically outstanding, has a great sense of humor, uses stories to engage the crowd, and in the end, doesn't leave anything on the table. Borges will bring it on when she comes to the Vasa Park Cultural Center in Mt. Olive for a special show on Sun., Nov. 13 (doors open at 2p.m., first act at 2:30p.m.), with her band, The Broken Singles. Also featured is the eclectic duo, Mef & Angela, and singersongwriter Steve Kirchuk. Mef & Angela play only a couple of reunion shows a year and this is one of them. Vasa Park is located just off Route 46 in Mt. Olive, at 1 Vasa Drive. When Borges performs, she likens it to “digging deep.” “Digging deep” has never been a problem for the Massachusetts native. “I would say that my sound is straight up rock and roll, but it’s the sum total of what my record collection looks like,” she said. What you hear on her recordings is what you’ll get on stage. “A lot of loud guitars and loud singing. You can certainly dance to it.” Borges’ style is parts Americana, Indie, straight up rock, and blues. Just what was Borges listening to during her formative musical years? “When I started playing in a band, I listened to X and its offshoots, like the Knitters and other bands that its members were in. I also listened to a lot of old country from my dad’s record collection, and a lot of classic rock. I grew up in Boston, which in the 1990s was such a hotbed for indie rock. You could go and see all your favorite bands in the clubs every Saturday night. There’s a lot of musicians and bands that came from here, and


were so accessible when I started playing. That helped me out a lot in terms of me thinking it was possible to be in a band.” Though the creative side of her loves to record, Borges says that it’s being on stage night after night that is truly her greatest passion. “That’s my favorite part of music. Every night is different, and determined by the people in the audience. Sometimes, the crowd is so ready to go, and sometimes you might have to work things a little more. I like to do it night after night, because it’s a living and breathing thing – (em dash) and it evolves.” “I’m not afraid to lay it out there. What’s the worst thing that can happen? Nobody is going to die,” she says with a laugh. Telling her story - and being a musical bad ass in the process. That’s Sarah Borges. And she’s proud of it. Being proud of their music is something that also describes Mef & Angela, a longtime favorite in Northwest Jersey. The duo mixes quiet with loud, fashioning their own flavor to recognizable songs, and adding their own material as well. Kirchuk offers his own style, mixing originals with covers that take on new meaning. In addition to great music, there will be vendors selling crafts and other cool stuff, a full bar, and food for sale. The show is presented by Joe Hirsh Productions and Vasa Park, with sponsorship in part from Cheers - Craft Beers and Bites, of Mount Olive (formerly Eastern Asian Bistro). Tickets in advance are just $15. To order tickets, go to www.joehirshproductions. com. For further information email

Through Special Invite, Jamie Lee Curtis Presents First Reading Of New Book To Local Students

By Cheryl Conway ome things are not meant to pass up, like a chance to immigrate to a new country for a better life… or a chance to meet a famous actress/ author and get featured on the television news. Like the saying goes, “When somebody gives you something, you take it,”--exactly what the fourth graders at Tinc Rd. School in Flanders did recently when given a special invitation, free bus ticket and ferry tickets to the nation’s most historic immigration station. Just like the immigrants did when given a ticket to the gateway into the United States, students and teachers did not turn down the opportunity to come to Ellis Island. On Mon., Sept. 19, at 7:30 a.m., three fourth grade classes with 84 students, 17 parents and nine teachers boarded two chartered busses to a once-in-a lifetime experience. Sponsored by the "Save Ellis Island" Foundation, the entourage from Tinc Rd. School were invited as guests to participate in a special screening to hear actress Jamie Lee Curtis’ first reading and discussion of her 11th children's book, "This Is Me: A Story of Who We Are and Where We Came From." The pop-up book, which was published the next day on Sept. 20, is about an elementary teacher who tells her class about her great-grandmother who immigrated to America with nothing but a small suitcase. The teacher compels her students to ask themselves what possessions they would take along if moving to a new country and being separated from the world they knew.

It was a bit star striking for those who know Curtis as a famous actress and very exciting for the young readers to meet an author. “It was just wonderful,” says Kathleen Diefes, a reading interventionist at Tinc and Field Trip coordinator. “On the way there we watched “Freaky Friday” on the bus so they could see her as an actress. We were just in awe as adults. I got to shake her hand and was introduced to her. “It was a once in a life time event for them that we were so fortunate to have,” adds Diefes. “It’s an amazing experience and we were invited. We didn’t call it a field trip; called it a special event. It was a great way to open up the school year.” For the students, “Just for them to meet a real life author,” was great, says Diefes. They studied immigration, went to Ellis Island to see the museum and the artifacts, see the instruments and what the immigrants went through for their physicals “to bring it to life for them. To make the trip even more exciting, NBC’s Channel 4 News New York Live with Ben Aaron was on the scene covering the screening, and with that, seven Tinc Rd. students were interviewed by Aaron and televised on Thur., Sept. 22. Aaron asked the students what they would bring in their suitcase if they had to emigrate. “I would pick my stuffed animal Barkley [a dog] because he keeps me safe,” said nine year old Charles Atkinson who was featured on the news. Atkinson said he enjoyed the trip because “I liked that we got to see a fa-

mous author. I thought Jamie Lee Curtis' book was amazing because it gives different examples of what the kids put in their suit-

cases.” While visiting Ellis Island, he said he continued on next page

â&#x20AC;&#x153;learned that Italy sent the most immigrants to the U.S.â&#x20AC;? Other students shared interesting comments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was touching that we were the first group of people that she read her new book to,â&#x20AC;? said Shawn Lavery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When she read her book, it was awesome!â&#x20AC;? said Alyssa Hahn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really cool to see Jaime Lee Curtis reading her book to our class.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really cool being able to meet a movie star and an author,â&#x20AC;? said Isabella Moschello. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked when Jaime Lee Curtis asked us what we would take with us in our suitcase,â&#x20AC;? said Gabriel Alonzo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked family photos because I would be sad to leave them behind

and it would remind me of the good times I had with my family.â&#x20AC;? Tessa Zentko wrote, "A lot of people say that Ellis Island was the "island of tears" but to me it is the "island of hope." Trips to Ellis Island are nothing new to Tinc Rd. School with third and fifth grade classes visiting there in the past. But the school hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been since 2012 once Hurricane Sandy hit, says Diefes. The idea of visiting the historical landmark arose this past summer when Diefes was contacted by a former Tinc Rd. school parent, Fran Alvarez, who works with Save Ellis Island Inc. Diefes had taught two of Alvarezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children at Tinc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She contacted me during the summer and asked me if I would coordinate the trip,â&#x20AC;? explains Diefes, who then went on to speak with her school principal Dr. Richard Fair about the idea. Since last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third graders studied immigration, he determined as fourth graders a trip to Ellis Island would coincide with their learning. At the end, students received a signed copy of Curtisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book, as well as a plastic souvenir bracelet with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is Meâ&#x20AC;? logo, date of field trip and Ellis Island. Cost of the trip was $16 , and that was to cover the cost of the book. The remainder of the trip was funded by Curtis and Save Ellis Island Inc. After the book reading, students attended a â&#x20AC;&#x153;smallâ&#x20AC;? program on immigration and toured the museum with a tour di-

rector, seeing the famous Great Hall and the "Stairs of Separation,â&#x20AC;? a stairway that separated those allowed to enter America from those being detained for legal or medical reasons. Since they had to board the busses by 2 p.m. to be back by 4 p.m., most would agree that they want to return to Ellis Island for a second trip soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I would visit again because it was interesting,â&#x20AC;? concludes Atkinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was my trip from Ellis Islandâ&#x20AC;Ś. Let me just tell you it was off the hook!â&#x20AC;? said Marwah Ashraf.

Christ Church Budd Lake Worship Service For Special Needs Families Begins Tenth Year

ll God’s Children is a non-denominational Christian church service designed for all school-aged children, with a special welcome for families dealing with autism, ADHD, Aspergers, Downs and other developmental disabilities. The tenth year inaugural service kicked off on Sept. 18, initiating a series of twicemonthly worship services at Christ Church Budd Lake, to be held every first and third Sunday at 9 a.m. Catering to short attention spans, the All God’s Children service is a lively combination of music, prayer, Bible stories, movement and communion. The essential message of God’s love and joy for all of His children is presented in a simplified, meaningful way. This service brings together


children with disabilities and children without disabilities to learn together, and from each other, in an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance. Following the halfhour service, parents share refreshments and ideas while the children enjoy snacks with adult supervision. This unique service has been profiled in several media outlets as a provider of a welcoming worship space for families with exceptionally active and/or vocal children, who often are diagnosed with Aspergers, ADD, autism, or a host of other conditions. Each child participates to the best of their individual abilities along with their families. In addition, several churches across NJ have instituted their own special needs services using this program as their model.

The number of participants continues to grow, along with a growing sense of the importance of sharing the Christian faith with ALL of God’s extraordinary young people. Come and pray for healing, strength, progress, and enlightenment as spiritual journeys are shared!

Inspiration from the Editor...

Motivation Sweetens The Recipe For Weight Loss

t a recent exercise class, a new member walked in at least half way into the start of class. No biggie, I was few minutes late myself. But when I noticed that she was exercising without any shoes on, I thought well now that’s motivation! The instructor stopped class and ran out to her car thinking she had an extra pair in her trunk, as they happen to wear the same size, but realized they were no longer there. When asked where her shoes were, the member responded, ‘I just couldn’t find them.’ Exercise and dieting go hand and hand, most trainers and fitness consultants would agree, when it comes to weight loss. But it is that third element that makes all the difference. Like drinking coffee without cream and sugar, trying to lose weight without that key ingredient, motivation, it just does not mix well. No matter what the goal, success is hard to achieve without that motivation. Some may give up their lunch hour to walk four miles every day. Others may give up something they love like eating dessert or drinking


alcohol. Some figure if they exercise everyday they will lose weight, but that is not always the case. Most individuals, once they reach that magical age of 45, need to push themselves even harder or add on even more exercise to their regular routine. Instead of running four miles, run twice that day and try for six miles. One dad I know spent his free time running his kids around to activities. But he found his motivation when he jumped on that treadmill 11 p.m. at night to still squeeze in that run while others would probably be watching the news or hitting the hay. Back to that woman at my class, as we were doing our squats, she looked at me with an expression of pain. The class was challenging. I looked at her and told her I admire her motivation. This mother was late to class, missing almost half of it, but still showed up without shoes on her feet. Toward the end of class, two other women came in to the building, not to exercise, but to set up for a funeral repass for a friend who just died. As they were arranging the tables and lining up the trays filled with

Treating pain associated with cancer


ain is not always a side effect of cancer, but many people do experience pain while battling this potentially deadly disease. People who have


been diagnosed with cancer should know that they don’t have to accept pain as a normal part of their disease, and there are plenty of options at their disposal to alleviate their pain. According to the American Cancer Society, all pain can be treated, and most of it can be controlled or relieved. How physicians treat pain will depend on the type of pain and its cause, but the following are some options doctors may discuss with their patients who are experiencing pain. Medication: The type of medication doctors prescribe will depend on a host of factors, including the level of pain their patients are dealing with. Non-opioids like acetaminophen, aspiring or ibuprofen may be used to treat mild to moderate pain, though patients who are having surgery or receiving chemotherapy may need to steer clear of non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin and ibuprofen because

they can slow blood clotting. Opioids, which include oxycodone and morphine, may be prescribed for moderate to severe pain. Pain caused by swelling or pressure may be treated by prescription steroids, such as prednisone and dexamethasone. Surgery: The ACS notes that surgery may be an option to reduce pain associated with cancer. Nerve pathways carry pain impulses to the brain, but when these impulses are interrupted, they never make it to the brain and the feelings of pain and pressure cannot be felt. To block these pathways, neurosurgeons may cut nerves, but such surgery is irreversible, so cancer patients should expect their physicians and surgeons to explore other avenues before recommending surgery. Epidural: An epidural is a method of pain relief in which medicine is injected into the space around the layers of the spine. Doctors may implant a pump so they can get pain medicines right around the nerves, and the

Cancer screenings men should consider

ancer screenings play an important role in cancer prevention. Screenings may not prevent people from getting cancer, but they can detect the presence of cancer before a person begins to experience any signs or symptoms. Screenings also can help doctors catch cancer before it metastasizes, or spreads, to areas of the body outside the area where it originated. Many women get routine mammograms to detect for breast cancer, but women are not the only ones who should include cancer screenings in their healthcare routines. Men also can benefit from screenings, discussing the pros and cons of each with their physicians during routine health examinations. Colon cancer: Men should begin getting screened for colon cancer at age 50, though those with family histories of colon cancer or other colon issues should begin even earlier, as family history increases a man’s risk of developing colon cancer. Colon cancer screenings may discover a type of growth known as a polyp,

which is typically benign and can be removed before it develops into cancer. The American Cancer Society notes that men have various options to choose from with regard to screening for colon cancer. Such options include a colonoscopy, a stool DNA test and a camera pill. Speak to your physician about these options and discuss your family history, which will influence how frequently you need to be screened for colon cancer. Lung cancer: Screening for lung cancer is most important for men who currently or recently smoked. The United States Preventive Services Task Force recommends annual screening for lung cancer with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) for men between the ages of 55 and 80 who have a 30 pack-year smoking history and currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years. Screening should be discontinued once a man has not smoked for 15 years or has developed

a health problem that substantially limits a man’s life expectancy or his ability or willingness to undergo curative lung surgery. (Note: Pack-year history is calculated by multiplying

treated area may experience numbness or weakness as a result. Nerve block: Another way to treat pain associated with cancer is via a nerve block, a procedure in which a local anesthetic is injected into or around a nerve. If doctors do not choose that option, the anesthetic, which is often combined with a steroid, may be injected into the space around the spinal cord to block pain. While the injection makes it impossible for the nerve to relay pain to the brain, the nerve block may cause muscle paralysis or a loss of all feeling in the affected area. Managing pain associated with cancer can be difficult, but patients dealing with such pain can discuss the many pain treatment options at their disposal with their physicians.

the number of packs of cigarettes smoked per day by the number of years the person has smoked.) The ACS notes that the risks associated with lung cancer screenings typically outweigh the benefits for men who have never smoked or quit long ago. Prostate cancer: The National Cancer Institute notes that prostate cancer is the most common nonskin cancer among men in the United States. Being 50 years of age, black and/or having a brother, son or father who had prostate cancer increase a man’s risk of developing the disease. The NCI notes that screening tests for prostate cancer, which include a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen test, come with risks, and men should discuss these risks and the potential benefits of prostate cancer screenings before deciding to be screened. Cancer screenings can detect cancer in its earliest stages, and as men get older, they should discuss their screening options with their physicians.

How to find the right oncologist for you


he day a person is diagnosed with cancer is a life-altering moment. Many people rely on support networks made up of family and friends to

help them during their cancer treatments, and such support networks can extend to patients’ choice of oncologists as well. Oncology is a branch of medicine involved in the diagnosis and treatment of tumors. The term “oncology” is derived from the Greek word “onco,” meaning bulk or mass. Upon diagnosing patients with cancer, oncologists explain the type of cancer patients have and explain the various treatment options available to patients. Oncologists also are on call to answer any questions and are often the first people patients turn to when they have questions about their disease. Taking an active role in their cancer treatment can help patients feel more in control of their situations, and patients’ choice of oncologist is one of the first big decisions they must make. Start with a referral. Begin by speaking with your primary care physician. He or she

may have a list of recommended oncologists or ones affiliated with nearby hospitals. If a loved one has battled cancer in the past, ask him or her for a recommendation. Do your research. The goal is to find an oncologist who specializes in your form of cancer and has a good treatment success rate. Do not be afraid to ask about success statistics and ask for prior patients’ names so you can get their opinions on the care they received. Look up the doctor’s credentials as well. For example, provides information on malpractice and disciplinary history. Consider a group practice. As with other medical providers, some oncologists work together in full partnerships with other oncologists. Choosing this type of provider may enable you to gain the benefit of the doctors’ collaborative experience. Judge communication style and compas-

sion levels. Does the doctor answer your questions in a manner that fits with your personality? Do you feel supported by the doctor and that he or she exudes empathy? Oncologists need to walk the fine line between qualified medical provider and friend. Look into insurance coverage. While you may want to go with one particular doctor, you must investigate if your insurance covers that particular oncologist. Otherwise, outof-pocket expenses may be considerably high. Look into the hospital. Consider the quality of care at the hospital where the oncologist will treat you as a patient. Hospital quality can matter based on the type of care given, proximity to the patient’s home and reputation. A qualified, compassionate oncologist can make it easier to navigate a cancer diagnosis.

Recognizing cancers of the eye and eyelid


Eye cancers are often first diagnosed during otherwise routine eye examinations.

ancer involves the uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a particular part of the body. Cancer begins in one area, but it can invade or spread to other parts of the body if it goes undetected or untreated. Certain cancers are more familiar to the general public than others, thanks in part to awareness campaigns and charity fundraisers. But no area of the body, including the eyes and eyelids, is immune to cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, the most common type of eye cancer that affects adults is ocular melanoma, while children are more likely to experience retinoblastoma. Cancer can affect the three main parts of the eye, which include the eyeball, orbit and adnexal structures. The eyeball includes the sclera, uvea and retina. The orbit is the tissue surrounding the eyeball and the muscles that move the eye in different directions.

Adnexal structures include the eyelids and the tear glands. Cancer that begins in the eyeball is known as intraocular cancer. Many cases of adnexal cancer, or cancer that affects the eyelid, may actually be skin cancer. In fact, MD Anderson Cancer center says more than 90 percent of eyelid cancers are basal cell carcinomas of the skin. Eye cancer may or may not produce symptoms, and any symptoms it does produce may be different based on the type of cancer present. Symptoms in adults may include: • a red or painful eye • blurred vision in one eye • change in iris color or dark spots on the iris • bulging of the eye • “floaters” in the field of vision • loss of peripheral vision Early signs of eye cancer are most often discovered by an eye doctor during routine eye examinations. A person who has any un-

usual changes in vision will want to visit an ophthalmologist promptly. Many cancers

can be easily diagnosed by a trained physi-

cian, and early detection can improve prognosis. The ACS estimates that, in 2015,

there will be 2,580 new cancers (mainly

melanomas) of the eye and orbit — 1,360 in men and 1,220 in women.

Treatments for eye cancers are similar to the options for cancers that begin elsewhere. Surgery, radiation therapy, laser therapy,

chemotherapy, and other targeted therapies may be used alone or in conjunction with

another depending on the type of eye cancer

present. Every step will be taken to improve

health and reduce the effects of treatment on vision.

Mt. Olive Scout Begins Eagle Project At Library

By J. L. Shively t. Olive Boy Scout John Bigger has set out to achieve the highest honor in scouts, his Eagle Award, by creating a sustainable project built along with and for the community. A sophomore at Mt. Olive High School, Bigger has been an active member of Boy Scout Troop 312 for the last five years. The plans for Bigger’s project is to construct a 12 foot wooden gazebo outside of the Mt. Olive Public Library. The idea for this project came about after a discussion with a family friend, Rhonda Cohen, who is also the bookkeeper at the Mt. Olive Library. Cohen had mentioned to Bigger that there was really no comfortable spot to sit outside to enjoy a book. Although there are benches, Bigger explains, they were looking for something “with more of an aesthetic look to it.” Therefore the idea for the construction of a gazebo was put forth. “We are very excited about the gazebo,” states Cohen. “A lot of time, on my work breaks, I’ll go outside.” The gazebo, Cohen explains, will be a beautiful addition to a beautiful building and will really “add a lot to the landscape” while also being a great place for the community and the staff to enjoy the outdoors. The first step to initiating this project


was to present the plan to the library. “I initially met with Mrs. Rhonda Cohen but ultimately I got approval from the library’s Director Mauro Magarelli and the Board of Trustees,” says Bigger. Once he had the nod of approval, Bigger had to get an idea of how much the gazebo would cost and where he would acquire it. After a trip to Amish Mike’s, an Amish Building and Design Store in Hackettstown, Bigger was able to decide on the design and price of the gazebo. The gazebo is offered in a kit that can be purchased at the store and needs to be assembled on site. The overall cost for the gazebo is $2,250. This cost includes the cost of the kit, stain, wood to construct benches inside the gazebo, the foundation and a garden which is planned for around the site. Bigger plans to raise the funds for the gazebo throughout the winter, mainly through his GoFundMe page which can be found at Another step which Bigger had to take the lead on was acquiring the zoning and building permits he would need to construct the gazebo on the chosen site. For this step Bigger had to go to the township building and fill out the necessary forms to show where the gazebo would be built and the dimensions. Approval for the building and zoning

permit was received by the town on Oct. 4, giving Bigger the definite green light for his project. The plans for this gazebo will include not only the construction of the gazebo but benches crafted to fit inside the gazebo as well as a small garden which will surround the site. Bigger plans to enlist the help of his fellow troop members when the actual construction begins. Ultimately, the construction start date will depend on fundraising but as of right now Bigger plans on breaking ground in Spring 2017. “In the meantime I need the community’s support to fund the project,” says Bigger. So far Bigger has put 17 hours into the planning stages of the project but, he insists, the project is “Not about the hours.” A

Eagle Project is about “the project itself and helping the community and getting other scouts involved,” explains Bigger. On what inspired Bigger to attain his Eagle Award he explains, “My grandfather was an Eagle Scout. It was always interesting to hear what he did to achieve that rank.” Overall, in the Scouts, Bigger explains “I have learned a lot too. I have learned about leadership and learned things I never would have known.” For this project Bigger looks forward to using the knowledge he has acquired over his years in scouts. “I am excited and I look forward to apply my leadership skills to organize the scout from my troop to help me build this gazebo.”

Halloween Pumpkin-Carving Pointers

ransforming pumpkins into cleverly carved creations is a Halloween tradition. Each October, glowing pumpkins take up residence near doorsteps and porches, adding to the magical ambiance of the season. Young and old spend time designing their themes and then taking knife to pumpkin to achieve the desired effects. Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns can be traced back centuries to Ireland and a story about “Stingy Jack.” The tale involves Jack outwitting the Devil twice, the second time freeing the Devil from a prank in exchange for the promise that he would not claim Jack’s soul should Jack die. When Jack did die, God did not want the unsavory character in heaven, but the Devil could not claim Jack for hell. Therefore, Jack was relegated to roam the planet indefinitely with only a burning coal to light his way. Jack put that coal into a carved-out turnip. His ghostly figure was referred to as “Jack of the Lantern.” Later on it was shortened to “Jack O’Lantern.” When Irish immigrants arrived in North America, turnips weren’t plentiful, so jack-o’-lanterns were instead carved into pumpkins. Today, many people carve jack-o’-lanterns, with some featuring just smiling or grimacing faces while others are far more artistic creations. These tips can help anyone carve a pumpkin.

• Begin with a fresh pumpkin. Look for a pumpkin with a green stem. If the pumpkin has been sitting around for too long or has been handled too much, the stem can get brittle and/or fall off. A thick, fresh pumpkin is best for carving. • Plan your ideas. Draw a plan for your pumpkin before you make your first cut. Then transfer that design to the pumpkin with pen or a thin marker. Pumpkin-carving kits come with designs that can be “traced” by poking small holes to create the outline of the design. • Don’t cut all the way through. Many professional pumpkin artists do not actually cut clear through the flesh of the pumpkin. They carve and shave off layers of the outer rind until it becomes more translucent. The level of transparency can be adjusted based on how much skin is removed and as a way to add texture and shadowing. The more air that is allowed to penetrate the pumpkin, the faster it will start to degrade. • Delay carving until the last minute. Wait until the day before Halloween to begin carving. Pumpkins are a perishable item, and they’ll begin to rot as soon as you begin carving. Spritzing them with water can help them stay fresh, but there’s no turning back the clock once the first cut is made. • Cut a hole in the back. According to Brooklyn-based Maniac Pumpkin Carvers, cutting off the top of the

pumpkin can affect its structural integrity and cause it to rot faster. Instead, cut a hole in the back of the pumpkin and use an electric light to illuminate it. LEDs are adviseable because they don’t generate much heat, which can cook and rot the pumpkin from the inside out.

AZA made the announcement during its annual convention on Wed., Sept. 7 in San Diego,


Calif. This is the third consecutive five-year accreditation that Turtle Back has received. It became an accredited facility for the first time in its history in 2006 and the accreditation was renewed in 2011. “Maintaining accreditation is very important because it demonstrates to our visitors our commitment to providing the high-

est level of care and safety for our animals,” said Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. “We have been committed to making Turtle Back Zoo a modern, first-class facility that is safe for the animals and an exciting place for people of all ages to visit,” Turtle Back Zoo Director Brint Spencer said. “Earning AZA accreditation for a third time

is a tremendous accomplishment and is an indication of the high quality of care we give to our animals and the dedication of our keepers, staff and volunteers,” he added. The accreditation process, which occurs every five years, includes a detailed application and a meticulous on-site inspection by a team of trained zoo and aquarium professionals. The inspecting team observes all aspects of the institution’s operation in areas such as animal care; keeper training; safety for visitors, staff, and animals; educational programs; conservation efforts; veterinary programs; financial stability; risk management; visitor services; and other areas. The

inspection team prepares an extensive written report for AZA’s independent Accreditation Commission. Top officials are then interviewed at a formal commission hearing, after which accreditation is granted, tabled or denied. The Zoo is open seven

days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $14 for adults, $11 for children and senior citizens, and free for children younger than two. For more information, call 973731-5800 or visit www.essexcountynj. org/turtleback zoo.

HVAC Inspection Advised To Prepare For Cold Months

he leaves may be falling now, but winter is just around the corner. Don’t wait until cold weather arrives to make sure the heating system can take on the chill. Properly preparing the heating system for winter requires only a few hours of time and guarantees comfort during the colder months. No one wants to have their furnace breakdown in the middle of winter! Regular check-ups and maintenance ensure that the system is performing efficiently and providing optimum home comfort. A maintenance plan also extends the life of equipment, increases cost effectiveness and ensures safe operation. Recommended by manufacturers and utilities alike, regularly scheduled maintenance on a heating and air conditioning system can reduce breakdowns by as much as 95 percent and lower utility bills by up to 35 percent. Air Group offers a wide choice of service plans for heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical & generator systems. A service technician is available 24 hours a day seven days a week from October-April for heating through its on-call rotation, which is especially important during extreme weather when someone is entrusted to get equipment going right away.

The easiest and most cost-effective way to keep a system running efficiently is to enroll in an Air Group Priority Plus Maintenance Plan. Tune-ups catch small problems before they become major breakdowns. Get other membership benefits, like priority service to jump to the head of the line and be scheduled ahead of others. This applies to both routine and emergency calls. Also receive a 15 percent discount off the bottom line for heating, air conditioning and plumbing services for as long as the service partner relationship remains in effect. And on top of all that, get a peace of mind. The home’s plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems will be assessed to ensure they are in safe operating condition; findings will be reported, concerns will be explained and potential emergencies will be alerted before they become disruptive problems. Check out this helpful checklist to ensuring the furnace runs smoothly and efficiently throughout the entire snowy season. Replace the furnace filter. Check to see if the filter is full of debris since the last time it was replaced. A dirty filter can cause the furnace to work harder than it has to, and decrease airflow, making it to use more energy and

shortening the lifespan of the furnace. Now is also the time to service the humidifier by changing the water filter. Check vents and ductwork. Be sure the supply and return vents are free and clear while also being sure they are not blocked with furniture or clothes. The air must circulate through the rooms to heat them properly. Air leaking from the basement or attic ductwork is air that should be traveling to rooms. Thoroughly check ducts and their connections to make sure they are secure, and seal air leaks properly before turning on the furnace for the winter. Schedule a maintenance call. Having the furnace thoroughly cleaned and inspected by one of the experienced HVAC professionals at Air Group LLC before the start of the winter can make sure that the unit will run efficiently and will fix any potential problems before they grow into bigger concerns. Need the furnace inspected? If the furnace wasn’t inspected yet, don’t delay. Contact the experts at Air Group, certified HVAC experts with more than 50 years of experience, call at 1-800-545-1020 or schedule an appointment online at

here are more ways to enjoy turkey than as part of the traditional mashedpotatoes-and-stuffing feast you’ve grown up with. That’s why Carlos Rodriguez, executive chef of Orinoco in Boston, reinterpreted a Latin American favorite to put a new spin on the season’s favorite dish. “It’s turkey like you’ve never had it before,” Rodriguez said. “Barbecue meets Latin fusion, meets the best turkey sandwich you’ve ever had.” Rodriguez’s inspiration comes from El Salvador. His Slow Roasted Turkey Con Pan with Sundried Tomato and Apricot Jam is based on a tender, savory Salvadoran favorite called “Panes con Pavo.” This turkey is perfect for a crowd and serves 12, which is why Rodriguez uses the generously sized Culinario Series 16-quart Deep Roaster from Princess House to braise four full-sized turkey breasts. “Not every roaster works for braising,” Rodriguez said, “but this one is perfect because of its depth, even heat distribution and

hilly nights are the perfect time to pull out your favorite soup or stew recipe. Settle down with a blanket while a big pot of chili simmers on the stove. Warm, hearty and flavorful, chili is a classic comfort food, and it’s easy to customize with your favorite flavor combinations. Whether you prefer it spicy or mild, with or without beans, you can develop your own signature style. For chili connoisseurs, ground beef is usually the go-to meat, but try a new take on an old favorite by adding ground duck to your chili for something creative.

Duck has the robust, redmeat texture of beef but with the lean nutritional benefits of other poultry. Farm-raised white Pekin duck has less saturated fat than beef and a mild flavor that's not considered gamey. Plus, it’s versatile and complements a variety of dishes. Substitute duck in your favorite version of chili or try this Duck Chili. Like many chili recipes, this one tastes even better the next day, making it a great dish to make ahead of time and reheat when needed.

are some tips for picking the perfect one: * Look it over. Look for a round, oval or oblong shaped watermelon that is free from bruises, cuts or dents. * Lift it up. The watermelon should be heavy for its size. On average, a 5-pound watermelon yields 15 cups of edible fruit. * Turn it over. The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun. Mummy Supplies and Tools, Oval or round seedless watermelon, Cutting board, Kitchen knife, Small bowl, Dry erase marker, Paring knife, Melon baller, fluted or regular, Scoop, Assorted peelers, Cheesecloth, Straight pin, Battery-operated candle or light, Candy eyeballs or blueberries Wash watermelon under cool running water and pat dry. On cutting board, place watermelon on its side and use kitchen knife to cut off 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch from bottom (end opposite stem), being careful not to cut too deep into white part of rind. continued on next page

recipes make it easy to incorporate a healthy snack after all your hard work carving up a Halloween masterpiece. Find more recipes, carving patterns and inspiration at Carving Tips * Prior to carving, read through all of the directions. * Cuts are easiest when the watermelon is at room temperature. Once your handiwork is complete, chill the carving and contents before serving. * After drawing your design on the rind, insert toothpicks in key places to guide your cuts. * A sharp knife with a pointed tip makes the easiest, cleanest cuts. * Remove excess flesh in large pieces, when possible, to allow for easier melon ball or cube creation. * Use round toothpicks or skewers to attach pieces to your design as flat toothpicks are not strong enough to bear the weight or stand up to the thickness of the rind. Choosing a Watermelon With a thick rind covering the fruit inside, you may wonder how to choose the best watermelon at the market. Here


pooky, silly or symbolic, carved pumpkins are an essential ingredient to any Halloween celebration. This year, scare up some special fun for your party with a wicked watermelon carving, instead - but don't stop there. After crafting your watermelon into an artful mummy, take advantage of the healthy, immune-system supporting qualities of the lycopene leader among fresh produce. At 92 percent water, as well as an excellent source of vitamins A and C, watermelon is a hydrating post-art snack. Carving a creative design into a watermelon is a simple way to kick off the festivities and requires only a handful of common tools. Add a twinkling candle to make a fantastically frightful centerpiece. Or fill it with a fresh fruit salad or salsas for a more functional, practical approach. Even if you're planning on a hollowed-out carving, keep the sweet juicy fruit and make it a healthy addition to your Halloween party menu with a recipe that puts to use all your carving leftovers. To take advantage of all a watermelon has to offer - outside of the fun carving - try Frosted, Frozen Watermelon Balls or Kids Watermelon Pizza Supreme. These fun, simple

Cut 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch from stem end to create opening large enough to fit small bowl. Using dry erase marker, draw eyes, nose and mouth, along with wavy slits around carving to let more light flow through. Use paring knife to cut out design, being sure to cut through to red fruit. Use fluted or regular melon baller to hollow out inside of watermelon. Use scoop to remove excess watermelon. Peel green rind off outside of watermelon. (Tip: Different peelers work well for different parts of the watermelon, depending on how flat or round the melon is.) Wrap thin strips of cheesecloth around mummy carving and secure with straight pin, if needed. Put battery-operated candle or light into carving. Fit small bowl into top of carving and trim away excess rind to make bowl fit securely. Fill bowl with melon balls and attach candy or blueberries to make eyes.

Hayes, political paraphernalia including campaign buttons for Adlai Stevenson and Franklin Roosevelt, and a 1917 telegram sent by President Woodrow Wilson and other cultural artifacts– all from the extensive collections of the MCHS.

Abilities Receives Grant From Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation

bilities of Northwest Jersey has received a $7,500 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The award was one of 79 grants totaling more than $575,704 awarded by the Reeve Foundation to nonprofit organizations nationwide that provide more opportunities, access, and daily quality of life for individuals living with paralysis, their families, and caregivers. Conceived by the late Dana Reeve, the program has awarded more than 2,700 grants totaling more than $20 million since 1999. Abilities will use the grant to purchase Smart Tables, which accommodate four individuals in wheelchairs simultaneously, include those to facilitate communication, learning and prevocational skills. Use of such devices also improves physical dexterity and creates opportunities for group activities and peer interaction, helping to make Abilities’ MSN a stimulating resource for individuals with limited mobility. “It is with deep appreciation that we share this news of the Reeve Foundation’s generous contribution to expand the use of assistive technology in our MSN program,” said Abilities CEO Cynthia B. Wildermuth. “Their support will change the lives of those

we serve with mobility impairments. We are grateful and hope this is the beginning of a rewarding collaboration with the foundation.” Awarded twice yearly, grant requests were evaluated and scored based on a rigorous review process to determine funding for organizations that improve daily life for those living with paralysis, as well as their families and caregivers. In this particular grant cycle, the grantee review board awarded a significant number of grants in medically underserved areas for modification projects, animal service programs and veteran programs. The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Quality of Life Grants Program was created to address the myriad needs of children and adults living with paralysis, as well as provide assistance and education to their families and caregivers. Funded programs serve individuals living with paralysis caused by injuries, diseases or birth conditions, including but not limited to, stroke, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Families Attend Free Lawn Party At Thomas Edison’s Glenmont Estate

by Michele Guttenberger n Sat., Sept. 24, the Thomas Edison National Historic Park site offered a free family day of family activities. It was in the tradition of Edison’s own family’s lifestyle with the participation of some outdoor games that were popular with them. After a summer of family programs at the Edison Factory Lab site, it was a nice program change to have the official first days of fall outdoors at Glenmont. This is the home and estate of Thomas and Mina Edison. Like Edison’s factory laboratory it too is part of the National Historical Park Site. Glenmont resides inside the gated


community of Llewellyn Park and visitors were instructed to pick up a car pass from the Laboratory Visitor Center first. Thomas Edison was there to greet family guests to his lawn party in spirit with a lifesize cardboard cutout of this famous Llewellyn Park neighbor. Families got to experience a history view of West Orange’s prosperous suburbia during the early 20th Century. This was an emerging era of New Jersey’s train commuters and family suburb living. It had a comforting combination of modern electric conveniences while retaining the traditional barn of riding horses and a place for fresh egg laying hens. The park

tiquette regarding gratuities varies across the globe, and tipping may not be required in certain parts of the world. In fact, according to the travel resource ShermansTravel, tipping actually may be deemed offensive in some areas of the world. In various countries, travelers may not be required to tip. Countries in

which gratuities are unnecessary include Australia, Belgium, China, France, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and Vietnam. Travelers who want to avoid offending local workers can refer to travel guides before visiting foreign countries to determine whether tipping is de rigueur or unexpected.

ranger curators of the site have preserved a time capsule of the way things were when the Edison’s family lived there. The park rangers had organized programs that made this free family day both an educational and delightful experience. Activities included tours of the 29-room Victorian Mansion and tours of the poured concrete garage which houses a circa 1900 Locomobile, 1922 Model T and the 1936 Brewster belonging to son Charles Edison, Governor of NJ in 1940. Kids got to enjoy water color painting and obstacle course races on the lawn, Victorian board games, Junior Ranger activities, tree and leaf identification, and birding activities. Adults enjoyed strolling through the 15-acre estate, garage, greenhouse and the gravesite of Thomas and Mina Edison. It is noteworthy history to mention the 38-year-old widower Thomas Edison got a second chance at being a family man at Glenmont with his second wife Mina and their three younger children. Mina gave birth to all her children there and Edison peacefully passed away in his bed at Glenmont at age 84. This place was an attraction

for neighborhood friends, associates and world dignitaries alike who were given guest invitations by Mrs. Edison. Now today’s pubic can reenact the experience of being an invited guest to the Edison home. For more info on special family fall programs at Thomas Edison National Historical Park in West Orange.

In addition, hundreds of additional blood drives need to be scheduled to meet

projected hospital demand. Current inventory of several blood types is running below the desired target level. “It’s simple: hospital patient demand for blood often outpaces our best efforts to recruit donors and schedule blood drives,” said NYBC Executive Director of Donor Recruitment Andrea Cefarelli. “There are always reasons but we have to overcome that for the sake of hospital patients who need us.” “This is one of the toughest times of the year,” Cefarelli added. “We’re asking for our dedicated supporters to roll up their sleeves to make sure we’re able to provide our hospital partners with whatever they need to take care of their patients.” Blood products have a short shelf life – from five to 42 days, so constant replenishment is necessary. Each and every day there are patients who depend on the transfusion of red blood cells, platelets and plasma to stay alive. But blood and blood products can’t be manufactured.

They can only come from volunteer blood donors who take an hour to attend a blood drive or visit a donor center.

Artists Present A Haunting At the Hive Art Exhibition

he Gallery at the Hive/MCAW in Chester is pleased to announce its autumn season art exhibition, “A Haunting at the Hive.” The gallery will display the magnificent art of magic and mayhem created by more than 25 of the scariest, silliest and most compelling collection of regionally and internationally acclaimed visual artists.

Terrifying drinks and blood curdling snacks will be served.
