Pequannock Township High School Teacher Deb Thomas Named Teacher Of The Year

M

By Dawn M. Chiossi any congratulations to Pequannock Township High School teacher Deb Thomas for recently being honored as 2017-18 Teacher of the Year, also called the Governor’s Educator of the Year Program. This honor is sponsored by The New Jersey Governor’s Teacher/Educational Services Professionals’ Recognition Program. This updated program highlights educational innovation, student achievement, the rewards of teaching and important services outside of the classroom environment that lead to student success: Everything that will demonstrate the positive aspects of education. Education is a way of guiding students, pointing out pathways for their future. Thomas wears many hats to help her students do so. Teaching math for 12 years at Pequannock Township High School, Thomas is also a cheerleading coach and is a title 1 tutor. Teacher of The Year, it’s an impressive title that holds so much meaning in it. It speaks of passion, enthusiasm, and yes, hard work. As the saying goes, when people love what they do, they will never have an arduous day of work in their whole lives. Thus, teaching is more of a calling than a job, as many good teachers say, and Thomas is no Serving the Area Since 1990

exception. Thomas describes herself as taking the job one day at a time, always thinking of her students. She considers not only how the students will succeed academically, but what will also benefit them as whole individuals. According to Pequannock Township High School Principal Dr. Alicia Scelso who has had the opportunity to sit in on Thomas’s classes a few times describes that the math teacher’s classes are full and varied. She describes a teacher who engages her students, and who will use a variety of teaching methods to teach her class, so that it will benefit their learning.

“Depending on the topic of the day, Thomas will have the kids work in groups, or be hands-on, or even have students teach other students,” Scelso says. “The kids really like her.” Providing a safe and dynamic learning environment, stressing character, commitment, communication and critical thinking, those at Pequannock Township High School help students reach their full potential. And they are thrilled with Thomas’s honor. “We are so excited,” says Scelso. “This is such a big deal.” She describes that the school even put on a huge assembly to recognize Thomas. “Before winter break, 700 continued on page 3

Pequannock Resident Resurrects A 30-Year-Old Fundraiser

T

By Henry M. Holden he North Boulevard School Home School Association (HSA) just finished creating a Pequannock-opoly game board that will be sold throughout the township. This is a family and friends event fundraiser open to local businesses and residents of the township. Proceeds will benefit the HSA of any school that makes a sale. “The game board first originated in 1987 as a fundraiser,” said Nicole Liccardo. “My mother brought one over to my house a year ago. Immediately I saw this as a great fundraiser for my children’s school. “There are a handful of companies that are on the 1987 board purchasing property on the new board,” said Liccardo. “They’re buying property on the board just like in the regular game is played. Sales of advertising space for the Pequannock-opoly board ended on January 31. The game boards will go on sale after all the advertising spaces are sold. “Once we have all of the positions on the board sold we will then turn around and sell the board to residents of Pequannock to play the game. The properties are priced according to their value. If the player lands on a spot equivalent to the size of Boardwalk they would pay $400 for the

property, but its fake play money. “When an area business buys spots on the board we will get the artwork for the company and drop it into that spot on the board.” “We can’t really use the word Monopoly because of its trademark,” said Liccardo. “The advertising prices are based on the size of the property. One spot that measures 1 ½ x 2 ½ (like the properties on the original Monopoly board) would cost $100. For instance, ‘Start’ would cost more than ‘Boardwalk,’ and ‘Go to’ and ‘Jail’ would also cost a different (higher) amount. Each spot would have a different price depending on size and location on the board. We tried to be fair about the pricing. “Once completed, the residents of Pequannock can purchase a board for approximately $25. They will be going on sale approximately mid-February. It will be on social media so everybody in town can buy the board. The board comes with the pieces that you move around when you’re a player. They will get all the houses and pieces that come with the original game. North Boulevard School is offering board game incentives to the companies that purchase a space. Patron Spots (family names) will be sold for $15, on a first come, 100% Mailed, Bi-Weekly Newspaper 1 Old Wolfe Road Budd Lake, NJ 07828

They even presented her with flowers.” Additionally, the Board Of Education honored Thomas at a recent meeting. Thomas’s attitude regarding her students fits right in with the folks at Pequannock Town-

ship High School. “It’s all a collaborative effort,” explains Scelso. When asked what she would like to see in regards to education as principal, Scelso is excited to answer: “I want to meet the needs of all of my students. At the high school we are looking forward to student’s professional life after high school. I want to see my students succeed.”

Your New Life As A Pass-Through Entity Owner

f you are a small business owner, your planning probably got a lot trickier after the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). That’s because most small businesses have legal structures that are treated as pass-through entities for tax purposes, meaning they “pass-through” income to the owners or investors, which they record on their Form 1040 individual tax returns. These entities include S corporations, partnerships and sole proprietorships. On one hand, these kinds of businesses will benefit

from the TCJA’s 20 percent reduction to the taxation of business income. On the other, the rules used to determine how much of that reduction each business gets are complex. Here are some tips to help find out where your business falls in the new structure: 1. Know your business’s QBI QBI stands for “qualified business income,” which is generally your business net income other than income in the way of compensation. QBI is the basic figure you need to determine how much of the 20 percent reduction

you get. It excludes business losses, as well as factoring in amortization and capitalized expenditures. QBI is determined separately for each business activity, not per taxpayer. The first simple threshold rule is: If your taxable income is less than $157,500 as an individual filer, or $315,000 as a married couple filing jointly, you can take the full 20 percent deduction from your QBI. If your taxable income is higher than those levels, several other factors come into play. Buckle up and hold on, here is

where it gets complex: 2. Know whether your profession matters Several “specified service professions” are treated differently under the new rules. The list includes health, law consulting, athletics, financial services, brokerage services, accounting firms or “any trade or business where the principal asset … is the reputation or skill of one or more of its employees or owners.” If your business is in one of these professional areas, the 20 percent reduction to your QBI starts to phase out

to zero once your taxable income passes $157,500 as an individual filer or $315,000 as a married joint filer. The phaseout range before the reduction reaches zero is $50,000 for individual filers and $100,000 for married filers. The phaseout range also determines how much of the next factor matters: 3. Know whether wage and capital limits matter Once you go above the threshold, special wage and capital limits start to reduce your deduction. The formula for

mo sio str len

do the calculating the wage and capital limits is based on the greater of 50 percent of the W-2 wages paid by your business, OR 25 percent of the W-2 wages, plus 2.5 percent of the unadjusted basis of all qualified property acquired by your business over the year. These wage and capital limits are phased in over the threshold and apply cont. on page 5

Many of the supporters know firsthand that SOS has helped those that nobody else would assist. It is currently operating with a volunteer staff and little or no government funding. “An anonymous donor was so impressed with the selfless dedication of our staff - that a $350k donation was made

to help our plight,” she says. “However, in order to pay off our mortgage, allowing us free reign to continue with our mission, the donor has requested a match of $175k. In honor of Valentines Day, we are asking that you make a tax deductible donation to Strengthen Our Sisters in the name of a loved one. SOS will send you a certificate acknowledging your contribution.” Ramos says, “With your help, I believe, we can make miracles. I don’t believe in miracles, I depend on them.” Visit www.sosdv.org, or contact Ramos at 973-831-0898 or Cheryl at 973-728-0059.

Pequannock, Wayne To Get New Hiking Trail

T

he Morris County Board of Freeholders has signed an agreement to purchase an abandoned 4.4mile railroad rightof-way in Pequannock and Wayne for the creation of a long-planned recreation, hiking and biking trail. The property was purchased from the New York Susquehanna and Western Railway and will connect to the NJ Transit Mountain View rail station. The county governing board approved the $4.2 million agreement with NYS&W in late December, voting for it unanimously at the board’s Dec. 27 meeting. Federal funds are financing the project. The new trail, which would be a total of 4.8 miles, would run from River Drive in Pequannock, near Route 23, connect to the township’s Aquatic Park, and extend into Wayne at Mt. View Boulevard, just a short distance from the train station. It eventually will tie into Passaic County’s Morris Canal Greenway. The trail will be managed by the Morris County Park Commission. The anticipated 10-footwide trail will be similar to the Commission’s very pop-

ular Traction Line, which runs from Morristown to Madison, and gets heavy use by walkers, joggers and bicyclists. “This will be an incredible new addition to the county park system for the northeast section of our county,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana. “It will offer great new recreational opportunities, connecting parks and greenways, and also will offer a green commuter route to the NJ Transit trains, similar to what we now have with the Traction Line.’’ Pequannock Mayor Cathy Winterfield said, “Pequannock is looking forward to the rail trail as a

wonderful addition to our community. This trail will create a healthy recreation opportunity for our residents of all ages and bring a connectedness with other communities. We hope people will stop along the way to visit and enjoy the many amenities of Pequannock such as our Historic Train Station and Martin Berry House, constructed in 1720.” The idea for the bike path was conceived more than two decades ago by the late Pete Standish, a Pequannock resident and avid cyclist. When Standish died, he donated money to the township for the project.

Surprising Facts About Fleas And Ticks

leas and ticks rely on blood for food. They are the vampires of the pet realm, silently stalking companion animals wherever they go. Once fleas and ticks find a victim, they are bound to stay around for a while, enjoying the free meal. Fleas, in particular, can grow quite fond of a cat or dog - reproducing and quickly building an infestation. Few people are enamored with fleas and ticks, but learning a little more about them can help pet owners understand their behaviors and how to best keep their pets safe. Fleas Fleas have four life stages: egg, larva, pupa, and biting adult. Most people are familiar

with the adult stage because those are the most noticeable and painful. Fleas can feed on just about any blood host. Scientists know of more than 2,000 species and subspecies of fleas. However, in North America, the cat flea (ctenocephalides felis) is responsible for the majority of cat and dog infesta-

tions. Female fleas are typically larger than the males and are responsible for proliferating the flea brood. Females can consume up to 15 times their body weight in blood every day. This helps to fuel egg-laying, which can take place within 36 to 48 hours of the female’s first meal. In her lifetime, a female flea can lay roughly 2,000 eggs. Fleas are wingless parasites that get around by jumping from host to host. If they don’t have to expend too much energy (i.e. get comfortable on a host), they can go anywhere

from between two months and 100 days without a meal. Fleas can jump up to eight inches high, enabling them to grab onto a passing meal source. A typical flea can live for a few months, and fleas can carry a number of different diseases. From plague to cat scratch fever to tapeworms, fleas can make pets ill and also affect people who interact with them. Ticks Ticks are not insects; they are arachnids. That means they are more closely related to spiders and scorpions. The stages of the tick include the egg, larva, nymph, and adult. Depending on the species, nymph ticks can be quite small to the naked continued on page 9

Fleas And Ticks... continued from page 8 eye. Ticks’ small stature can make them difficult to detect until they have become engorged with blood. The University of Rhode Island’s Center for Vector-Borne Disease and its TickEncounter Resource Center say that spring is a prime time for the birth of new ticks. During this time of year, ticks are on the hunt for their next meals. Ticks can be carriers of a number of diseases, but it’s important to note that a tick has to be attached for longer than 24 hours to transmit diseases to a host. That means checking animals (and yourself) for ticks frequently can help avoid the spread of illness. Ticks don’t jump or fall from trees. The parasites crawl upward, so start looking from the feet, moving up. In addition, check

a dog’s face, where a tick may latch on while the dog is sniffing in the grass. Ticks and fleas are pesky critters that can carry disease. Consult with your veterinarian if you suspect your dog has a tick or flea problem to get the situation under control. Preventative collars and medications can help repel fleas and ticks as well. Dr. Matthew Krupnick is the owner of the Pequannock Animal Hospital. He grew up in Kinnelon and is happy to be home – with his wife, three cats, and two dogs – to provide quality and compassionate care for pets in the community.

Make Kitchen Time Easier

hroughout 2018, you can create easy, healthy and delicious family meals by using time-saving recipes. For example, these “Cook Once, Eat Twice” recipes from CanolaInfo start with pork chops that double as the base for lunch or dinner the following day. “The more you cook your own meals, the more you can control portion sizes and ingredients,” said Manuel Villacorta, registered dietitian. “Knowing the right oil to use is essential. I like using canola oil to keep the flavors of your dishes intact due to its neutral taste and light texture. Plus, it contains high levels of monounsaturated fat and

plant-based omega 3 fat, and is low in saturated fat. I use it regularly in my home kitchen and recommend it to my clients.” For more time-saving recipes, visit canolainfo.org. Pork Loin Chops with Sweet Balsamic Mushrooms Servings: 8 8 boneless center-cut pork loin chops (4 ounces each), trimmed of fat 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided 12 ounces sliced portobello mushrooms 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons water 2 teaspoons Wo rc e s t e rs h i re sauce 1 teaspoon sugar 2 tablespoons chopped green onions Sprinkle both sides of pork with pepper. In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon canola oil. Cook pork chops 4 minutes on each side, or until internal temperature reaches 160 F. Reserve four pork chops in refrigerator to make Pressed Pepperoncini-Pork Sandwiches. In skillet over medium-high heat, heat remaining canola oil; tilt skillet to coat bottom lightly. Cook mushrooms 4-5 minutes, or until tender and

juices begin to release, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 15 seconds, stirring constantly. Place over pork chops; cover to keep warm. To pan residue, add vinegar, water, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and remaining salt. Bring to boil over medium-high heat and boil 1 1/2-2 minutes, or until reduced to 2 tablespoons, scraping bottom and sides of skillet. Drizzle sauce over pork and mushrooms. Sprinkle with onions. Pressed Pepperoncini-Pork Sandwiches Servings: 4 12 ounces crusty French bread, unsliced 4 leftover pork chops from Pork Loin Chops with Sweet Balsamic

Mushrooms recipe 2/3 cup pepperoncini slices 1 plum tomato, chopped 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil 1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano 1/4 teaspoon dried pepper flakes 3 slices ultra-thin sliced Swiss cheese, cut in half Hollow out top and bottom halves of bread, leaving

1/2-inch thick shell. Place pork on bottom half of bread. In bowl, combine pepperoncini, tomato, onion, garlic, canola oil, vinegar, oregano and pepper flakes. Spoon pepperoncini mixture and any accumulated juices on top of pork and top with cheese. Cover with top half of loaf. Press down firmly to flatten sandwich and allow flavors and juices to absorb. Cut filled loaf crosswise into four equal pieces.

Budget-Friendly Spring Break Getaways

pring is the perfect time for a vacation. Shake off the doldrums of winter as you transition toward fresh beginnings and warmer days. One tip for planning a fun-filled trip with nearly countless memories: start your planning by deciding what types of things you’d like to do and experiences you’d like to enjoy. For example, destinations like Texas, which offers hundreds of miles of coastline along the Texas Gulf Coast, can be a perfect destination for spring break travel for all ages. Start looking forward to a getaway to remember with these ideas, perfect for family travel, spring-breakers and everyone in between. See the sights. If you’re the exploring type and want to mix some education with your fun, plan your journey around attractions like museums and nature centers, where you’ll find plenty to learn about the local area. Look for experiences you

can’t find anyplace else, such as a visit to a UNESCO World Heritage site, which can offer a special look at the past. Make a splash. For water lovers and more active types, a visit to the seashore may be just the ticket. At some locations, you can find all sorts of adventures, like surfing, kiteboarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing and more. Pitch a tent. When you’re looking to put the hustle and bustle of the city aside, a camping trip is the perfect way to reconnect with nature and enjoy some peaceful relaxation. Whether in Texas’s Hill Country or on a beach, you can find a variety of camping locations. For example, the small beach town of Port Aransas can provide a perfect backdrop to an evening by the campfire and a restful night under the stars. Explore the great outdoors. Discovering new flora and fauna is a delightful way to spend

great deals or enjoy the experience even further. Consider these tips and tricks, courtesy of Royal Caribbean, The Cruise Critic, the Travel Channel, and other vacationing experts. • Research the ships, and not just the cruise lines. Cruise lines each offer their own amenities and are known for certain features. One cruise line may be a better match for young singles, while others may cater to families. In addition, certain ships may have their own special features such as water slides, athletic events, casinos, and more. Choose a ship that meets your needs. • Arrive the night before. There’s no need to rush to the port to board the ship. Extend the vacation a little further by arriving a night or two before and checking into a nearby hotel. Some hotels may offer free parking or shuttle service to the

spring break. National parks offer nearly endless opportunities where you can experience natural elements teeming with life. These protected destinations are the perfect places for unique animal encounters, such as birdwatching, with hundreds of native species. Go by land and sea. You can create an eclectic trip with diverse experiences by choosing a destination that lets you enjoy activities on both land and

water. For example, Galveston Island’s cruise ports offer an array of activities that appeal to travelers in transition, such as harbor tours and an amusement park pier, along with the island’s ample supply of art galleries, entertainment and architecture. For more ideas and inspiration to start planning your spring break trip, explore TravelTexas.com.

Cruising Tips And Tricks Cruising can be an ideal vacation for people of any age, but particularly for seniors. Cruises combine all-inclusive meal packages with accommodations, breathtaking ports of call and pre-arranged activities, so vacationers do not have to lift a finger for days on end. Cruising also can be a social activity, meaning singletons can meet up with other like-minded people and enjoy the cruising experience together. Cruise Lines International Association, a global organization advocating for the cruising community, found that 25.8 million passengers expected to take a cruise in 2017, and various cruise companies invested more than $6.8 billion in new ocean vessels. Whether a person is new to cruising or is a seasoned ocean or river traveler, there are always techniques to try to score

ship. • Choose a close port. Select a port within driving distance to avoid airline costs and the extra hassles of coordinating luggage and travel to the port. • Book dining ahead of time. Cruise ships often have a main dining room and then specialty restaurants. If you want a particular meal, make reservations before leaving port. Certain restaurants may offer discounts or perks, such as a free bottle of wine or premiere seating. • Understand what’s included. Cruise ships have many foods and drinks that are included in the packaged price. Certain branded items, such as specialty coffees or ice creams, may be available at an additional charge, as are premium drinks. But chances are you can find a free, similar version elsewhere on the ship. • Explore special discounts.

When shopping for a cruise, see if there are discounts available for seniors, teachers, people in the military, or those who belong to certain clubs. Cruises often love to incentivize, so it pays to ask about discount pricing. • Make a list of activities. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by all of the offerings on a cruise ship, so much so that there’s some stress over trying to fit it all in. Recognize that you can’t see or hear it all, and prioritize what’s important to you. Make sure you have plenty of time to relax. • Book at the right time. Cruises may be more available after Labor Day when kids go back to school and the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas when others are too busy to travel. Cruising can be an ideal vacation for travelers who are savvy enough to do their research.

5 Ways To Prevent Sibling Arguments

B

rothers and sisters can be great friends, and those friendships often grow stronger with age. However, when kids are young, those fun and friendly relationships are not always so easy to come by. Arguments and fights may occur as sibling rivalry rear its ugly head, and parents may be unsure how to resolve the conflicts. Keeping peace in the family may require some of these strategies. • Encourage positive remarks. Encourage siblings to say a nice thing about each other around the dinner table. Acknowledging what they like about a sibling can help kids focus on the positives of being a brother or sister. • Eliminate “mini-parents.” It is the adults’ job, not kids’, to reprimand or show direction to children. When one child starts parenting another, parents must nip that in the bud as

quickly as possible. • Employ reverse psychology. Force the children to spend no time together one day. Actually ban interaction among siblings if they are prone to constant fights. Going without that company can illustrate just how much they miss being together. • Reward bickering and fussing with chores. Reward arguments with chores. If children have time to argue, they are probably not engaged in productive work. Knowing extra chores will be the result of arguing can help limit the number of fights. • Fair doesn’t mean identical. Children sometimes pick fights if they think a sibling is getting more attention from their mother and/or father than they are. Kids need different things in a relationship and parents can recognize that carbon-copy activities will not help quell that feeling of unfairness.

Did You Know?

ver the last decade, seniors have become increasingly more savvy in regard to social media usage. The Pew Research Center found that, in 2015, around 35 percent of people age 65 and older reported using social media. That’s a large jump from just 2 percent in 2005. As of 2016, 65 percent of people between the

ages 50 and 64 reported using social media, according to Pew. Social media usage among seniors continues to climb, although young adults still comprise the demographic most likely to use it. Among seniors ages 50 and older, Facebook is by far the most popular social media platform used, followed by Pinterest and LinkedIn.

Transform Bathrooms With Technology

echnology is infiltrating every room of the house. Many new home buyers are millennials, and this tech-savvy demographic covets technological innovations. A recent survey by Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate indicates 77 percent of Generation X and Y home buyers want their homes equipped with the tech capabilities they have grown accustomed to. Many of these involve smart innovations, including those that can transform one of the most private rooms in the house — the bathroom. Automated home theater rooms and Wi-Fi-enabled home security systems have become the norm, but what tech improvements are available to make the powder room more in touch with today’s digital lifestyle? According to

the home improvement resource The Spruce, bathrooms have the most potential of any rooms to be improved with technology. The following are just some of the bathroom gadgets and gizmos no one should resist before giving a try. • Automatic faucets: Infrared sensors have been helping keep public restrooms more hygienic for years. The same technology can be used in home bathrooms to curtail water waste and keep faucets and sinks from becoming infested with germs. In addition, faucets with built-in timers can be programmed to set tasks for brushing teeth or washing your face. • Musical shower: Instead of having to blast the volume on the portable speaker you use in the bathroom, a wireless speaker is built into some

showerheads. This enables those who like to sing in the shower or listen to podcasts while washing up to enjoy this luxury effortlessly. • Smarter weight management: Bathroom scales have gone high-tech as well, with various options enabling users to measure weight, BMI and body fat percentage before sending the data wirelessly to a phone, tablet or computer. This can put you in greater control of fitness goals. • High-tech toilets: Borrowing ideas from bidets and trends around the world, modern toilets do not require hands or paper. These toilets have temperature-controlled water, spritzing wands and air dryers to clean and sanitize. Self-cleaning toilets help busy professionals save time and are ideal for those who always

want their bowls as clean as possible. And if you desire extra comfort, toilet seat warmers are available, while LED lights can make nighttime restroom visits easier. • Soaking tubs: As fast as stand-alone showers were introduced to the modern bathroom, tubless designs have been replaced with streamlined soaking tubs. Tubs come with different features, including chromatherapy, which employs colored lights to enhance mood. Air baths are controlled electronically and provide different levels of sensation for those who are skipping the hot tub. Round out these innovations with automated lights, chilled medicine cabinets and aromatherapy, and your bathroom will indeed become a technological spa.
