GAME TABLES Washington “Returns” to Morristown


eorge Washington “returned” to Morristown, where he once set up camp with the Continental Army during the Civil War. This time, though, Washington visited in the form of a sand sculpture, displayed in Morris County’s Pocket Park, on the corners of Washington Street and Schuyler Place in Morristown. The sculpture was created by professional sand sculptor Andy Gertler on September 29 and was on display throughout the month of October. Washington’s bust resided next to an oversized sand sculpted football and plaque, commemorating the impending Super Bowl. The sculpture was inspired by the Morris County Tourism Bureau, and has earned Washington a new title—Huddle Zone Captain—in an effort to spur involvement and excitement as well as welcome tourists visiting the area for the Super Bowl. The Morris County Tourism Bureau, like many similar organizations in the area are working to gear up for the onslaught of commerce and tourism that is expected in conjunction with the Super Bowl this February. For more information on the Morris County Tourism Bureau or to learn more about their impact on the community, please visit

Louis Mauriello

Champion Waste Removal Offers Personalized Care


n the 30-plus years since starting his business, Champion Waste Removal owner Louis Mauriello has watched his longtime customers’ kids grow into adulthood and have children of their own. But that’s not a surprise—his friendly rapport, combined with a professional approach to every project he takes on, is proof that his company continues to thrive well into the 21st century. Mauriello began family-owned-and-operated Champion Waste Removal in the 1980s as a conventional garbage disposal company, but in the ensuing decades, he’s reinvented his business. “We specialize in residential and commercial cleanouts, not only on homes and businesses, but on construction sites as well—but bulk projects are certainly welcome,” he explains. When can Champion Waste Removal help? “If you are moving, you can call us to get rid of unwanted clutter. If you’ve had construction done on your house, you can rent one of our different size dumpsters—or we’ll come ourselves with a crew to physically remove debris.” 18


November 2013

The company—serving the Northern New Jersey counties of Essex, Passaic, Bergen, Morris, Union, Hudson and Sussex—is more than just cleanouts. Demolition projects are another specialty; of course, the crew cleans up after all demolition work is done. “We work with contractors and homeowners on kitchen and bathroom projects, basements, decks, Jacuzzis, sheds and more,” says Mauriello, who stresses that the list is “endless.” Occasionally, Champion takes care of bank-owned properties, cleaning out or winterizing these homes, as well as doing lawn maintenance on the empty homes during the warmer months. The company also has the Earth’s best interests at heart – “we’re very big on recycling,” he explains – so Champion’s staff sorts larger quantities of debris into cardboard, paper and scrap metal right onsite. While everyone expects professionalism when hiring a company to provide a service, it’s a pleasant surprise to receive compassion when the situation calls for it. “Every customer has a story—people who are less fortunate, or who

are going through a hard time,” says Mauriello. “We do our best to put ourselves in the customer’s position. Often, I’m called to the homes of people who have been left with a huge pile of construction debris because a contractor didn’t finish the job. We’ll work with them on price and help them resolve their issue.” Forget automated answering systems— customers can contact Mauriello 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as the company’s main line is forwarded to his cell phone. “I would say 75% of the time you get me live! I’ve been able to maintain a blend of the new world that we work in, but still keep a lot of the old world in it,” he says proudly. Mauriello knows respect and accountability are two of the reasons customers keep coming back to Champion Waste Removal. “If you throw good out there, good comes back to you,” he says. “In my world, the glass is always half full!”  Champion Waste Removal 973-744-6766

Pets Can Be Good Bets for

EnhancEd hEalth

Here in America we love having pets. The United States, in fact, has the highest percentage of households with pets, including more than 78 million dogs and 86 million cats, as estimated by The Humane Society. Sure, pet ownership adds more responsibility to our already busy lives, but it also brings joy and companionship, as well as a surprising number of benefits to both our physical and mental well being—from reducing allergies and anxiety to boosting vim and vigor. Studies have shown that older pet owners visit the doctor 30% less often than their counterparts without pets. and while dogs and cats are the typical pets of choice, even taking care of birds, rabbits, lizards and fish can stimulate good health.

Adios Allergies

Dander, the skin flakes from an animal’s hair or fur, is a common culprit of allergies. But more and more research reveals that children who grow up with pets, particularly dogs and cats, have a greater chance of dodging sensitivities that can wreak havoc on their bodies

and stay with them into adulthood. The thinking is that living with animals desensitizes the immune system to allergens and irritants like dander, and also minimizes stress. less stress in the long run further strengthens immunity, which promotes overall good health.

Hello Healthy Heart

Diet and exercise always will be vital to good cardiovascular health, but investigations have also linked having a pet with a “tuned ticker.” Stroking a dog or cat, talking to a bird, or watching fish in an aquarium can help lower your blood pressure, an important indicator of heart health. Such acts may also reduce cholesterol and even triglycerides and contribute to longer-term survival among heart attack patients. In one landmark study following 369 survivors of heart attack, researchers found that those who owned dogs and cats were less likely to die of cardiac disease.

Finer Fitness

Pet ownership can keep you moving with built-in exercise on a daily basis. Whether you’re briskly walking a dog around the neighborhood or playfully chasing a cat around the house, such physical activity can help you maintain a healthy weight, which in turn guards against the onset of chronic illnesses like obesity and diabetes. Medical literature has reported that dog owners walk more than non-owners and are one-third more likely to exercise the recommended 150 minutes or more each week. 30

Good Mood

Playing with pets can lift your spirits and calm you down. Indeed, the positive therapeutic effects of interacting with animals are based on science: your level of serotonin (a neurotransmitter referred to as the “happy hormone”) rises, while your level of cortisol (a chemical known as the “stress hormone”) decreases. less anxiety can lower the risk for developing depression. In some cases, pets have been prescribed by therapists to help patients deal with, and recover from, such debilitating sadness. Caring for a pet can also improve your morale and sense of self-worth.

Great Company

With their unconditional love, pets can be wonderful companions and provide the perfect antidote to isolation and loneliness—especially if you’re grieving the loss of a loved one. They can help you make new acquaintances as well. Dogs, in particular, spark conversations with other people and can offer opportunities for socializing in dog parks. If you decide to get a pet, do some research first to determine what kind of pet (and breed, if applicable) is best for you and your family. Then, enjoy the health benefits of owning a furry, feathery or scaly new friend! s

Pet tHerAPy For children with autism or learning disorders and adults suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, a pet may be the solution for improved quality of life. Animals rely mostly on nonverbal communication, just as autistic children and Alzheimer’s patients often do—so their interaction with a pet can dig beneath the layers of frustration and isolation and enable enhanced connection with the world. Studies have shown that pets can help children with learning disabilities stay alert and attentive, and cause people with Alzheimer’s to have less anxiety and fewer outbursts.

Learn to Listen, Listen to Learn

Good, clear communication

gives your actions greater meaning and helps you learn, whether you’re in the classroom or the boardroom. Here are five surefire ways to improve your communication with the people around you.


When I was a sales manager, it amazed me when a sales rep with a dynamic personality would suddenly become dull and humorless when interacting with a customer. The rep’s spark vanished because he believed he had to behave a certain way. In reality, he would have been more successful if he had acted naturally. The lesson: If you’re not comfortable with yourself, others won’t be, either. Be true to yourself and your message will come through clearly.


When we stop paying attention to others, we make mistakes. It’s perfectly acceptable to reflect on the past or dream about the future when you’re on your own, but keep your focus sharp when listening to others. As soon as you allow your attention to drift, you stop hearing what others are saying. When your concentra-

tion is distraction-free, you can communicate clearly and effectively.


Communication is stronger when you take others’ needs and interests into account. When they see the effort you’ve made to understand their success, you’re helping yourself at the same time—by elevating their success, you elevate your own. This tactic isn’t reserved for business associates; try it with your kids. It’s amazing what we can learn from them—and how much more they value our opinions when they know that we value theirs.


Look into a person’s eyes when you’re listening to gauge his or her emotions. Do the same when you speak, especially when making an important point. When addressing a group, make eye contact with one person in the audience. Then move on to someone else, and so on. Your message will have greater impact because you’ve connected with everyone—not just with your words, but also with your eyes.


Have you ever witnessed, or even participated in, Barry Farber a game of “verbal volleyball?” Here’s how it plays out: Person A is talking nonstop to Person B, unaware that Person B is thinking of everything she wants to say when Person A is finished. Both parties are so anxious to talk about themselves, they barely hear what the other is saying. Here’s how to take yourself out of the game: make brief statements, ask a few questions, and then toss the conversation back to the other person. You’re more likely to find mutually interesting conversation topics this way than if you’d continued playing verbal volleyball. A final word of advice regarding communication from Lord Chesterfield, the 18th Century British statesman, who said: “Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked.” 

Barry Farber consults with corporations, professional athletes and entertainers helping them market their products and land more deals. He’s the best-selling author of 12 books translated into 25 foreign languages with over one million copies sold. His next book, Success Secrets of Sales Superstars will be released April 2013 by Entrepreneur Press. You can see him on QVC selling out unique and innovative inventions. He’s a featured guest on CNN, Fox, CNBC and hosted over 400 Radio and Television shows in New York City, Washington and on the Comcast Television Network.
