National Football Foundation Recognizes West Orange Athlete
By Jason Cohen West Orange athlete, who has excelled in the classroom and on the gridiron, was recently recognized by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, Essex Chapter. On March 9, West Orange High School senior Tyler Eatman was the recipient of the scholar athlete award at the Essex County chapter’s 51st Annual Dinner at Mayfair Farms. The event recognized Essex County high school football players for demonstrating academic achievement, football ability and school leadership. West Orange Football Coach James Matsakis nominated him. “I felt very blessed and very happy,” Eatman said. “I have been working hard for the past four years.” The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame, Inc. (NFF) is a member-supported, non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the future of amateur football at the local, state and national levels. Eatman, 17, is 5’6, 250 pounds and always played offensive line. He has the highest G.P.A. on the team, is class president, is in the top 20 percent of his class, has made honor roll every semester this year, will become an Eagle Scout in the spring, has volunteered at a youth lead-
ership course the past four summers in Rockaway and plans to attend Ohio State University, where he will major in sports management. He told the “West Orange News”, balancing school and football was never easy, but he always made it work. Since he was young, his parents, Kim Hunter and Gerard Eatman have always stressed that school comes first. “I work hard on and off the field,” he said. “My favorite subject is math. Math is easier than blocking defenders.” Eatman began playing football at age 6 and his biggest influence was his nephew, Deshaun, 21. He would often go to his games and quickly fell in love with the gridiron. Scoring touchdowns and being in the spotlight never mattered to him. It was more about winning and the camaraderie with his teammates. He noted football is as much mental as it is physical. The team won the conference in 2016. “I used my brain not only for school, but on the field as well,” he commented. Eatman noted he would be remiss if he did not express gratitude to his coach for reach his full potential. “He (Matsakis) wanted you to do what was best for the program and for the school,” Eatman said.
As he looks ahead to college and dreams of becoming an athletic director, he will never forget the impact West Orange High School had on him. “The sport of football created this bond that I will never forget,” he exclaimed. “I’m excited to go to Ohio, meet new people and make new connections.”

By Anya Bochman s the weather slowly starts to turn into spring, the West Orange Police Department is marking April for a different reason. Designated as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, it is a time to reflect on dangers affecting many women, as well as to take action to prevent violence. In conjunction with this endeavor, the police department has partnered with the West Orange Recreation Department and the Board of Education to host a free self-defense and safety seminar at
show women basic self-defense strategies,” said Lieutenant Kevin Bolen of the West Orange PD. “We teamed up with a local martial artist, who will get free advertising in exchange for this seminar.”
Watson, whose business is also located in West Orange, travels from state to state with his company, Mobile 1 Krav Maga. According to his website, Watson served in the United States Marine
Corps for seven years. He trained under Taekwondo Master Israel Nava, achieving a Black Belt in Taekwondo and a certification from the Krav Maga Federation of America by Expert cont. on page 4

Seminar To Prevent Assaults... continued from page 2 Master Alain Cohen. Krav maga is an Israeli martial art developed for the Israel Defense Forces, the Shin Bet and Mossad, and is derived from a combination of techniques sourced from boxing, wrestling, aikido, judo and karate and realistic fight training. Originally developed by Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld, krav maga was meant as Jewish self-defense against fascist groups in Bratislava and Czechoslovakia during the rise of Nazism in the late 1930s. The martial art is growing in popularity in the U.S. as a means of self-defense, especially for women; designed to quickly and efficiently “neutralize” an attacker, it features techniques that can thwart assaults by aiming attacks at the most vulnerable parts of the body. “Krav maga works on natural instinctive reaction to attackers,” said Watson. “It works for women and builds confidence. It empowers women because it’s not about strength or power. So a 100 pound woman can defend off a 215 pound man by working off of natural reflexes and moves. It’s a no-rules based approach. We use knees
strikes, elbow strikes, eye strikes, palm strikes, etc.” According to Bolen, prior to Watson’s showing basic defense moves and strategies, the police department will discuss safety tips targeted at women and girls, geared to increase awareness of surroundings and safety through staying in groups. “We will highlight basic [assault] prevention tips,” Bolen stated. However, the lieutenant emphasized that the seminar was not a response to rising assaults in West Orange, and that he did not wish to scare the community by implying that it is. “Nothing here is a result of what is going on in West Orange,” Bolen said. “But things are happening all over the world, and we can’t hide and pretend that nothing will ever happen here.” According to the lieutenant, as of press time there are 4060 people signed up for the seminar; the cut off will be at 100 people. “If it is successful, we will do it again in the future,” Bolen stated.

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 continued on page 10

Social Justice Advocate To Address NCJW
he National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County Section, will present a special evening event, “Dessert and Dialogue,” featuring author Jennifer WeissWolf, on April 25 at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel, South Orange, at 7 p.m. Weiss-Wolf is a leader in the movement to make feminine hygiene products affordable and accessi-
ble. Her work to end the “tampon tax” and advocate for legislation that addresses the lack of menstrual equity in our communities has put her on the map as one of the nation’s “badass menstrual activists” by the publication “Bustle.” Menstrual equity is, in WeissWolf’s opinion, a “gateway issue for feminism” and one that is intensely relatable by all women.
NCJW/Essex operates a community service project called, “The Period.Project” which collects and distributes feminine hygiene supplies to local agencies and clients of its Center for Women. “Our community service work has shown us that more needs to be done to address the often overlooked issue of menstrual equity,” says Shari Harrison, president of NCJW/
Jennifer Weiss-Wolf. Writer, activist, social justice advocate, will be the speaker at an upcoming NCJW/Essex Dessert and Dialogue.
Essex. “We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer Weiss-Wolf to educate us and inspire us to continue engaging on this important issue.”

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
those who want to upgrade their office skills. Certain 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 blood mobile volunteer is an integral member of the blood collection team whose task it is to assist donors with registration, perform canteen duties and make appointments

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.

3 Tips To Meet Your Retirement Goals
eople are living longer, fuller lives than ever before, which means retirement plans need to stand the test of time. With this in mind, it makes sense to review your financial plan and make necessary tweaks to set yourself up for success. “Knowing that your retirement plan includes long-term protection from market losses and opportunities for growth can help you feel more confident about facing some of the challenges that may come your way,” says Will Fuller, president of Annuity Solutions and Distribution for Lincoln Financial Group. “What’s more, working with a financial advisor can help you balance your competing financial priorities to help ensure you are on the right track for a successful, comfortable retirement.” Fuller and the professionals at Lincoln Financial Group are offering the following tips for creating a successful retirement plan. • Start saving today. If your employer offers a 401k, enroll if you haven’t already. If you’re currently enrolled, consider boosting your contributions or creating an additional retirement account. Only four in 10 savers are saving as much as they think
is necessary, according to the 2017 Lincoln Retirement Power Participant Study. One reason for this is that many savers face competing financial priorities, such as saving for college for their children and paying down mortgage debt. A financial advisor can help you manage such competing priorities. • Plan for the unexpected. Most people age 65 and older will need some form of long-term care, so plan for this potential expense. One way to help guarantee that you will have the resources to pay for such expenses as they arise, while protecting the savings and income you’ve worked to build, is through a long-term care funding solution. • Add solutions that offer lifetime income. “Retirement strategies that were once successful may no longer stand up to today’s challenges, including fluctuations in the market, inflation and tax reform,” says Ric Martin MS, CFP, of Bluestone Wealth Partners in Columbus, OH, and a registered representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors, who works with clients on their retirement income plans. “Depending on retirees’ personal situations and if
an annuity works for them, savers can help ensure that their income is available and there when needed in retirement. An annuity can provide a stream of guaranteed lifetime income that they won’t be able to outlive.” More retirement resources and tips can be found at www.lincolnfinancial.com. Savers should look for a retirement savings plan that is well-rounded and well-protected against risk. Consult with a qualified advisor who can help you plan a strategy that will leave you feeling more confident about your future. (StatePoint)

5 Stand-Out Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
eed a Mother’s Day gift that truly shines? Take these fun and practical ideas into consideration. 1. A clean house. Let Mom take a load off now and again. Hire a cleaning service once a month for a year, or if you’re on a budget, do it yourself. From laundry to dishes -- an IOU ticket to take care of the chores she would usually handle will give Mom an opportunity to take more time for herself to read a book or go out with friends. 2. A classic accessory. If you’re looking for something classic, give Mom an accessory that combines function and fashion, such as the Vintage Collection timepieces from Casio. Offered in a range of styles that complement fashion palates from simple and classic to retro glam, each timepiece comes equipped with an LEDlit display face, a countdown timer and a 1/10th second stopwatch. They also feature a daily alarm, hourly time signal and an auto-calendar, making them a necessity for anyone looking for fashion flare that keeps her organized, on-time and up-to-date with appointments.
3. Some rest and relaxation. Send Mom for a spa day, where she can select the treatments and services she wants best. Or, help her to create a spalike environment at home, with face masks, a foot spa and bath bombs for the tub. 4. A hobby. Has Mom always wanted to learn to play piano? Consider gifting portable technology to help her achieve this dream. One modestly priced option is Casio’s CT-X700 portable keyboard, which features a rich sound with a powerful AiX Sound Service. Designed for casual players and beginners, it has a Lesson System that displays the proper fingering and notation, helping you learn its library of 100 built-in songs, as well as a six-track recorder. 5. Time together. Spend some quality time with Mom. Take a cooking class or comedy workshop together, or look for sip and paint options, where you learn painting skills while enjoying a glass of wine or beer. Local cafes and bars often host such events; however, you may want to check out the community center or community college for class options, too. (StatePoint)
