continued from front page Department. Mr. Vanzini, Director of Choral Activities at MOHS, described these students as talented, hard working and dedicated to making music at the highest level. They knew the demands as they were also part of the MOHS Madrigal Choir who performed with the NY POPS twice last year. All music is memorized and they are singing along side of professional adult

singers from EVUSA. These students put in about 20 extra hours of rehearsal time with Mr. Vanzini and many hours on their own memorizing. They also traveled to NYC for rehearsals with EVUSA. Carnegie Hall was sold out and this is yet another example of the once in a lifetime experiences the MOHS Music Department gives their students.

ith more and more Mount Olive area families in need of food, the Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Fall Food Drive is more important than ever as winter and the holidays loom. Over the years, thousands of pounds of food and thousands of dollars have been collected during this endeavor. Businesses large and small participate in this annual food drive event. Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics and Givaudan Fragrances Corporation were the top two collectors of food donations last year, however, thanks to nearly two dozen businesses and organizations in total, huge amounts of food were collected overall. "The chamber gets involved in many community events and activities throughout the year but this project is by far our most important," said Greg Stewart, president of the chamber. "Things are very tough out there for a lot of families. Clearly, people, many of whom are our neighbors and friends, are in need. Thankfully those not affected understand this and have been very, very generous in their offerings in the past. It is crucial that folks continue to give what they can." With so many families in dire need of help this year due to the economy, the chamber is looking to make this a record-

breaking collection year. The organization's 17th annual fall food drive began on Nov. 1 and continues through the end of November. Initiated by Dr. John Berezny of Berezny Chiropractic in Flanders in 1996, the food drive has grown every year as more and more residents donate food and money. A number of Mount Olive area businesses and organizations will have collection boxes. They include: Picatinny Federal Credit Union, Paragon Village, Bob Scirocco,Esq., Crossroads Community Church, Wuff N Purr, Northern Hills Physical Therapy, Nursery School at St Dunstans (Succasunna), Warren Distributing, Berezny Chiropractic, The Wine Rack, Village Green Apartment Complex, PNC Bank - Flanders, Nisivoccia Consulting, Nisivoccia & Company, Veolia Environmental Services, GBW Insurance, Valley National Bank, Edible Arrangements, Bright Horizons, Lepores Italian Market and the Goddard School.

Mt. Olive Tree In Lights In NYC

This is an honor to the township as the community in which it was grown, says Jeff Stadelman, owner of the Wine Rack in Flanders and friend of Balku. Its an honor to the community- visibility to the community for the season. Balku was unable to comment under contract with Rockefeller. Stadelman says the tree was spotted after a man was driving around Mt. Olive, got lost, saw the tree and said this is it. In light of Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Rob Greenbaum reserved comment. While I think it is a great honor for Mt. Olive, in light of the situation in town and residents having no power, I did not want to divert my attention and resources away from the task at hand, says Greenbaum. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is a world-wide symbol of the holidays in New York City. During the time that the tree arrives, a giant crane will hoist it into position in front of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in midtown Manhattan. Once the tree is in place, it will be decorated with more than 30,000 multi-colored, energy-efficient LED lights, and crowned by a Swarovski star. This year marks the 80th Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center,

By Cheryl Conway urricane Sandy ripped through Mt. Olive taking out some trees in its path, but it did not uproot the giant spruce recently discovered to play the role of the famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree this year. Cars lined the street on Corey Road in Flanders on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 10 a.m. to attend the tree cutting on Flanders/Drakestown Road across from Silver Spring Farm restaurant. The road was blocked off to allow a crane and scissor truck to remove the 80-foot Norway Spruce. The tree 80 feet tall, 10 tons and 50 feet in diameter- came from the yard of Joseph Balku, former local businessman. Wrapped and wired before it was cut down, the tree was hoisted by a huge crane onto a 115 foot long trailer, driven up Flanders/Drakestown Road, to pass town hall, up Wolfe Road, to the Trade Zone. Police later escorted the flatbed truck across the George Washington Bridge into New York City, to be erected at Rockefeller Center on Wed., Nov. 14. Students of the Mt. Olive Middle School cheered from their busses as they watched the huge tree pass by its school during dismissal.

which is broadcast live annually across the nation. The tree, usually a Norway spruce, measures 69 to 100 feet, and has been put up every year since 1933.

Many Rockefeller trees were given to Rockefeller Center by donors; others have been scouted by helicopter. The decorated continued on next page

Christmas tree remains lit at Rockefeller Center through Jan. 6. Once removed, it is recycled for a variety of uses. The last tree that came from NJ was a 72 foot Norway Spruce from Hamilton, NJ, in 2008. Other trees have come from other states such as Connecticut, Vermont, Ohio and upstate New York. The Mt. Olive Recreation Department, meanwhile, has planned a community trip continued from previous page to attend the famous tree lighting ceremony scheduled for Wed., Nov. 28.

Recently, St. Michael School held a Car Raffle fund raiser for scholarships. The Saint Michael School families were asked to sell raffle tickets for a 2012 Chrysler 200 car at a value of over $18,000. For just $75.00 a ticket this new economical car is an amazing deal! With only a maximum of 500 tickets to be sold, each buyer had a incredible odds to win a brand new car. It took a consorted effort of all school families to sell their allotted tickets. Mrs. Daniela Sacco of Hopatcong took home a new IPAD for selling the most tickets! It seems that many times this type of raffle is awarded to someone kind enough to support our efforts, but yet, still someone not known by many school families. This year, our car raffle was awarded to a St. Michael School family that has given many hours of time, talent and treasure to our school! The Formica Family is the winner of our car raffle! We are fortunate to have the Formica children in our classrooms and likewise lucky to have their parents involved in our school activities!

Local Single Mother/Beautician Cuts Hair Prices For Charity

Garcia. I know how bad it feels when you have no one around. I dont want any kids to go to bed with an empty stomach. I dont want another woman to have that abuse and not know what they are going to feed their kids. I was blessed not to go to those resources but just the fear and the fact to not have, its a scary thing. Garcia, who was born in the Dominican Republic, came to the United States in 1992 when she was 28. I came to the United States to look for a better opportunity, she says. I was already a single mom of two. Garcia had been married to her first husband for six years from an arranged marriage. I was 22 years old when I married my first husband, right out of college, says Garcia. I dated him only three months because I was considered an "old maid" (never had a boyfriend). They thought I was weird because I was dedicated to get an education instead of finding a husband. Therefore, I was pressured to rush and get married. I didn't stay in the marriage because he was a womanizer (very common and acceptable in our culture). When Garcia came to the U.S., she immediately joined the U.S. Army to learn the English language. She served in the army for five years as a specialist in generator repair stationed in South Carolina, Virginia and Oklahoma. Her college degree in electrical engineering that she earned from the Dominican Republic helped in that respect. While working at a bank, I met my prince charming, she says. That was the same time that she passed her test to work as a probation officer. She remarried, had two more kids, and then got divorced after nine years. It was an abusive relationship, says Garcia, verbal abuse and emotional controlling. Divorce, it was hard to make that decision but I felt like I could not raise my kids in such an environment. I figured this was not the right way to live.

By Cheryl Conway ith her hand she cuts, colors and creates and for the holiday season she reaches out to help others who face similar struggles. Nurys Garcia of Flanders a single mother of four is donating 20 percent of her sales from her hair care business- to The Food Bank of Mt. Olive from now through December. Garcia received her license in cosmetology this past year and opened up Full Service In-Home Care. The past years have been difficult for Garcia, trying to get back on her feet after divorcing her abusive husband of nine years. Her struggles ranged from accepting a new lifestyle, purchasing a house with no credit, earning more money to support her family while working full-time and staying hopeful that life will get better. As a result of all of her tribulations, Garcia says I would like to give back to the community and be an example of hope and persistency that despite the difficulty in their life, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There are so many people going through similar situations. As her way of giving back, Garcia is offering a special on all of her hair-care services to the community. She chose to donate her proceeds to the Food Bank of Mt. Olive because having food is a necessity. During my time of struggles, I wish to find a place for somebody to help me, says

While divorce was her best choice, Garcia did not realize all of her struggles to come. During the process of the divorce, I was living a nightmare, she says. I became a sole provider, losing my house, social status, breakage of family, losing my economic stability. Garcia says, He intentionally let the house go into foreclosure in order to break me down without even my knowledge. Once he moved, all the bills were going to him. For nine months, I was the secondary; the continued on next page

continued from previous page home was in his name. Garcia says she was forced to move out of her four bedroom house to a two-bedroom apartment in fear they would put us out. Garcia got herself an attorney and was able to put her house into short sale, while her husband refused to sign and accommodate any potential buyers. I was able to regain strength during the hard time and to rescue my family. I had to make the decision to let go of my social status to my new lifestyle. I sold as much as I could and gave the rest away. It was better to leave an ugly past life and move on with my new life. Garcia, who has full custody of her kids, 25, 22, 16 and 10, says I have to give credit to my kids that they were able to adapt to my new situation. Her oldest daughter had to transfer to a more affordable college. After living in the apartment for one year, Garcia felt she could afford a little more so she rented a house until it flooded. Since her credit was ruined with the short sale of her home, Garcia had bad credit for almost seven years. My hopes of moving ahead and giving a better life to my kids was diminishing but I never lost hope. As a member of Grace Church in Netcong, Garcia says my hope and faith in God helped me get through those difficult times. One day she was passing by, and noticed

Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News, November 2012, Page 13 a house that she could afford was for sale again by the owner. I didnt have any hopes, she says. I was a woman with a heavy accent and a woman with no credit. I was honest with him. I couldnt qualify for a mortgage. He agreed to sell the house to Garcia by holding the mortgage for her. The house was a fixer upper, but with a lot of work, I brought it to living standards. After eight months, Garcia inquired about her veterans status and qualified for a VA loan. During the process of getting the house, Garcia got a student loan to attend Artistic Academy in Morris Plains part-time for 18 months, graduating in 2011and earning her cosmetology license. I needed extra income to support my family, says Garcia, who also works as a probation officer in the Child Support Unit. I enjoy helping people especially collecting money for their children and family's need. With hair care, Garcia says Its one way to express myself; its an art for me. She specializes in color. Men, women and kids are welcome. To make a hair appointment with Garcia, call 973-757-3013. Her hours are after 5 p.m. during the week and any time on weekends, but accommodations can be made. Services are reasonably priced.

Mount Olive And Hackettstown Officials Assess The Devastation Of Sandy, Hope For Quick Recovery
viate some of the pain in these incredibly difficult times that they face. In addition to these donations, of course, local officials are also focusing on making sure that residents have safe access to gasoline for their home generators if power has not yet been restored to their homes. Thousands upon thousands of New Jersey and New York households have not regained power to their homes yet as of our presstime. These residents are affected to the point that everyday living becomes needlessly difficult. Utility companies are working hard to repair severed power lines and snapped telephone poles in many regions of the state, as residents call and wait to get their power restored. Trees were ripped out of the ground from the heavy wind and rain in many regions of New Jersey and New York, and homes were destroyed and both states suffered some fatalities. Huge sections of communities were leveled or damaged severely across New Jersey and New York. People in the many coastal cities and towns lost loved ones, or had their homes destroyed and now suffer horribly as they exist day to day trying to figure out what to do. Recovery seems like a long, long impossible road. Hopefully, the rest of us can offer a glimpse of hope - by way of a few dollars or some food or household items - which can be forwarded to these victims and their communities. It is the least we can do if we have not had quite as bad as some others.

ur thoughts go out to the families in New Jersey and New York who recently lost loved ones in the horrific storm Sandy, and to those who lost their homes. This kind of devastation was not something we thought possible. Thousands and thousands of individuals in New Jersey and New York have damage to their property and homes, and are struggling to survive with no power. Our thoughts go out to them as well, and we hope that the horrific suffering subsides so that we can move on as best as possible. Some individuals have stepped up to offer donations to these families and community members all over New Jersey and New York. Police, fire, emergency and government officials have been working endlessly to help residents survive this turmoil, after Sandy wreaked havoc on New Jersey and New York. If anyone can donate services, goods or money to these families who are going through the most horrible of times, it is much appreciated. This could possibly alle-

And especially, our hearts go out to those who lost loved ones or their homes. If it is possible for us all to donate goods, services, or money to the victims, we should please try to do so. Officials from both Mount Olive and Hackettstown spoke out last week about the incredible turmoil and, even, the charity and

Hope For Quick Recovery...

donations offered in our communities. Wendy Stanton, the administrative assistant at Hackettstown's Business Improvement District, said the town's residents "have really come together." After the storm hit, most of Main Street and Stiger Street amazingly still had power, and residents and businesses have stepped up and provided services and donations to people in need - including aid for the coastal

cities that were so affected by the storm. They luckily we able to open their doors for business soon enough. Free showering facilities and charging stations for cell phones were offered at several locations as well. Food, blankets, flashlights and cleaning supplies were collected for those in need, and were shipped down to the New Jersey shore. Businesses in town are now up and running and gathering these items to help out, and officials at town hall also worked hard to provide relief to the townspeople and beyond. In Mount Olive, many residents were unfortunately still suffering from not having power. Business Administrator Sean Canning said in a phone interview on Nov. 7 that about 30-35 percent of residents in the township were still without power. He said he was continuing to keep in contact with elected officials and employees to do all he could to improve the situation which he said was not acceptable. Canning said he was beleagured and frustrated with this situation after the storm. We wish Mount Olive residents and Hackettstown residents the quickest recovery possible from this turmoil.

As we have also seen over the past few weeks, many individuals were, of course, struggling through long lines at the local gas stations to get gas for their generators and vehicles. Many of these gas stations had makeshift cardboard signs placed on top of an orange construction cone which notified them that the line on the shoulder of the road was a "Gas Lane Only." It told the story the dire need for access to fuel which plagues New Jersey and New York. New Jersey and New York are still dealing with these horrors in the aftermath of storm Sandy. In some cases, individuals were looking to borrow generators because they do not own one, or because their generator broke down. And with the winter approaching, and some cold weather arriving in the past week, this became seriously urgent. Once again, we hope for a quick recovery amidst the devastation, and our heartfelt thoughts go out to the victims and their families. They need our help, and we will try our best to give them help. Many thanks to the local residents who have stepped up to help out those in need. Their goodwill is certainly much appreciated in this time.

items for clients and provides transfer services. The store is owned and operated by Jim Hawthorne of Budd Lake, NJ. I have a passion for firearms and sport shooting. I live in an area of NJ where sport shooting and hunting is very popular, but Im really looking to build a community where anyone who has an interest in firearms for hunting, personal protection, collecting or sport shooting can come to share their stories, learn about gun safety, find the newest products, etc. According to a recent Gallup Poll, 1 in 4 women own a firearm and we want our store to be the place women can come and feel comfortable shopping, asking questions and educating themselves in the same way men do. I also want to help and encourage responsible individuals to assert their 2nd Amendment Right. Having proudly served in the US Army, I have had the opportunity to see firsthand what happens when peoples unalienable rights are stripped from them. Firearms are quickly becoming mainstream. The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates the industry is responsible for approximately 180,000 jobs and has impact on the U.S. economy of $28 billion. While most other retail businesses have experienced steady declines, gun sales have been increasing for the past 10 years, according to the FBIs National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Stray No More In Mt. Olive Twp.

By Cheryl Conway ats have more lives now especially in Mt. Olive. The number of stray cats found in Mt. Olive has been reduced greatly since Trap Neuter and Return began in town three years ago. Based on the numbers, fewer cats are being impounded and killed thanks to the method that identifies cats and returns them to their environment. TNR in Mt. Olive - a non-lethal population control technique- has been naturally shrinking cat colonies, creating healthier and better behaved cats after being neutered, and providing a more affordable approach rather than capturing, holding and euthanizing. Ever since we started, its gone down a lot every year, says Michelle Lerner, volunteer who spear-headed the Mt. Olive TNR Project. We do whatever it takes to make sure cats arent killed in Mt. Olive. So far, for 2012, 34 cats have been impounded in Mt. Olive and none of them have been killed, according to Lerner. In 2008, a year before the Mt. Olive TNR Project began in 2009, 181 cats were impounded in Mt. Olive, out of which 141 were killed.

In previous years, stray cats have been impounded by the animal control officer and euthanized after seven days if not claimed by their owner. Volunteers of the TNR Project have been working with the ACO and now when strayed cats are found by the town, they are released to the TNR group who then neuters, fosters and adopts any cats or kittens. Mayor Rob Greenbaum and Business Administrator Sean Canning have been extremely helpful and supportive, says Lerner. Im wholly in favor in finding resolutions other than euthanasia, says Greenbaum. I would hope those are available and is in the best interest to the people. The TNR group currently has 33 cats in foster homes awaiting adoption. Seven of them recently came from a hoarding situation. A Mt. Olive resident who lives in an apartment complex had seven cats and kittens, a dog and a rabbit until he realized they were more than he could handle. Lerner says none of the animals were neutered and they werent being fed The dog ate the rabbit, cats were eating plastic, says Lerner. The guy surrendered

the cats and we got them. One cat was pregnant and then had five kittens, which were then transferred for adoption. In a separate situation, a local farm owner called the ACO requesting that 13 cats on his farm be removed. The ACO impounded the two cats and 11 kittens for

one week and then handed them to the TNR group. All needed lab work, two had heart problems and four of them left awaiting adoption, says Lerner. The Black River Veterinary Hospital in continued on next page

continued from previous page Chester, which performs most of the veterinarian needs for the TNR group, conducted x-rays for free, but the group had to pay $120 in lab work. At one point, we had 43 cats/kittens, says Lerner. We had to set up temporary cages for them. Noahs Ark in Ledgewood, St. Huberts in Madison, 11th Hour and SOS in the Rockaway Mall have been helpful in taking the cats/kittens to be adopted out. Most of the apartment complexes where many stray cats are found- in town have agreed to work with the TNR group. Most have come from apartment complexes in the last few years, says Lerner. Last year, kittens were found at Village Green in Budd Lake, and then they [management] decided to work with us. Eagle Rock/ Hensyn Village in Budd Lake is the last frontier where trap neuter return is needed, says Lerner. There are female kittens there now under the building that will have more kittens. We need to get all of the cats neutered, says Lerner. We need to get at the root of the problem. Without TNR, it creates a vacuum

Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News, November 2012, Page 19 mal control, Lerner says about management at Eagle Rock/Hensyn Village. If they just let us neuter them, it would solve the problem. If apartment complexes could just agree to TNR it would save money to the town. Lerner says, Our goal is to get every cat in Mt. Olive neutered, including residents indoor cats. Thats how cat colonies are started. People should call us if they know other feral cats in town or if they are feeding them. For low income cat owners, Lerner says if they can pay $60, the TNR group will transfer the cats for them. The $60 goes to the clinic fee for spay/neuter, rabies and distemper shots. We will work with low income families, tenants to get their cats neutered, she says. If we have funds, we wont charge them. The TNR group continues to seek foster homes, volunteers and donations for the project. There are about 20 consistent volunteers who give five to 10 hours weekly with the TNR project in Mt. Olive. Those who want to adopt a cat or kitten can look out for upcoming adoption days. Usually every two weeks, Tractor Supply in Flanders sponsors adoption days for the TNR group. For those who do not want to wait for an adoption day, contact the TNR group to visit cats and kittens in their foster homes. Lerner says the TNR group offers lower adoption fees as an incentive to look for us as well as reduced fees to those who adopt two kittens. Each cat/kitten to be adopted, receives distemper shots, microchip and feline leukemia testing. Yard sales are held twice annually to raise funds for the project. Donations on all items except large furniture are being accepted. The fall yard sale this past October at The After in Flanders raised $1,600. Re-Style Consignment in Hackettstown donated bags of clothing for the yard sale. The next yard sale is scheduled for June. Also visit www.mtolivetnr.org for pictures of cats and kittens looking for a home. To send financial donations, food and liter for the cats, go to the link on the website for more information; or send email to mtolivetnr@gmail.com. Checks can be made out to APLNJ-Mt. Olive TNR and send to: TNR Project, P.O. Box 116, Budd Lake, NJ, 07828.

effect, explains Lerner. Theres access to food and shelter. Wild animals tend to live in a place because its a resource. The TNR group returns only the feral cats to their environment, Who are terrified of humans and thus being adopted out would not work. They are not aggressive, they are just terrified. The TNR group gets them neutered and vaccinated before returning them. The case is different for kittens, which are then held for a few months and then adopted out. Its much easier to tame kittens, says Lerner. Its extremely difficult to tame a feral cat. Its like trying to tame a fox- it doesnt work and it would take a tremendous amount of resources that we dont have. Tamed adult cats that are found get spayed and neutered; flyers are then posted. If we dont find their home, we try to adopt them out or put in a safe-no kill shelter. We dont put friendly cats back outside. Without controlling the feral cat population, more money will be spent through the town, thus the taxpayers. The ACO pays $150 per cat/kitten to hold for seven days. Every three or four years, he calls ani-

Sandshore Runs To Save Planet

By Cheryl Conway tudents and staff at Sandshore Elementary School in Budd Lake have been getting a little R & R. That is for Run and Recycle. On Friday, Oct. 26, 350 students and staff at Sandshore Elementary joined thousands of other runners worldwide in a Run for the Planet event sponsored by National Geographic Kids Magazine. The purpose of the event is to promote healthier/active lifestyles and to recycle. They are trying to help break two Guinness World Records for running and recycling. The first record to break is to get the most people running 100 meters in 24 hours. The second record is to collect the longest chain of sneakers that will be recycled into athletic surfaces. To break the records, more than 5,000 people need to run and 12,500 pairs of shoes need to be collected. The initiativeRun for the Planet inspires kids and families to do something good for their health and the environment. Run for the Planet supports First Lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move! campaign, which encourages people to get healthy and active. I just thought it would be a fun idea,

says Sydney Mullin of Budd Lake, fifth grade student at Sandshore who brought the idea to her school. Its kind of for a good cause to make new athletic equipment and courts so you dont have to use all those resources. You use the old shoes that nobody wants anymore instead of them going to the dumpster. Sydney, 10, described the event to her principal, vice principal and gym teacher in September after reading about it in National Geographic Kids Magazine. I found it in a magazine I was reading, says Sydney. I thought it would be a fun thing to do for my school. Sydneys mom, Nicole, helped her research the event, email people to inform them of the idea, and handle the shoe collection boxes. We went to the website on hints on how to organize it, says Nicole Mullin, former vice president of the Sandshore Home & School Partnership (SHSP). At first I thought it was going to be something small. Its a great way to get kids moving. Overall its a win win situation. Sydney says, It took a lot of emailing and phone calling. I think my gym teacher emailed me back. She said it was a great idea. She thought it would be a really fun

On Oct. 26, at 2:45, 350 students, staff and teachers at Sandshore ran 100 meters outside on the blacktop in the playground area of the school. To break the record, more than 5,000 people worldwide needed to run 100 meters between noon Oct. 26 and noon Oct. 27. Since the event is an official Guinness

World Record attempt, the running portion needed witnesses and stewards. Mayor Rob Greenbaum, WRNJ reporter Emily Lippiello and Mt. Olive Police Officer Brian Braikovich served as witnesses and stewards. Their job was to measure the course and count the number of participants. continued on next page

continued from previous page I was very, very excited about asking me to participate, says Mayor Ron Greenbaum. I immediately contacted Sydney. I told her Id be extremely happy to participate. To have school-age children participating in community involvement, to help with the needs of others is very exciting to me. Sydney says, The first person to call me back was the mayor. Just five minutes later, he called me back and told me it was great

Sandshore Runs To Save Planet

Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News, November 2012, Page 21 National Geographic Kids Headquarters in Washington, D.C. All shoes with laces are being collected but it is only the athletic shoes that will be used for recycling. All shoes must be clean and dried with laces untied. Any size as long as it fits a human, says Sydney. You can donate baby shoes, as long as it doesnt fit a dog. The athletic shoes will then be donated to the Nike Reuse-A-Shoe program to be cut up and recycled into things like basketball and tennis courts, soccer fields, playgrounds, and running tracks. The materials from the sneakers help to soften the fields, says Sydney. They can also be used as safe turf. So far from the collection box that had been located at Sandshore School, Sydney and her mom have collected 190 shoes. The box had been removed from the school, but with the deadline extension, the Mullins were trying to get a box placed in each of the schools to increase their collection. The Mt. Olive Recreation Department also has a box in the municipal building for this event. The SHSP group agreed to pay for shipping costs to send the shoes to D.C. Visit kids.nationalgeographic.com/runfor-the-planet/ for official rules, and other information. Helping out in her community is nothing new to Sydney. When a house burned down in her neighborhood recently, Sydney, her mom and another family baked and sold cupcakes and muffins to raise funds to help their neighbor. They were called Caring Cupcakes and were pumpkin and chocolate cupcakes decorated with leaves and pumpkins. They placed four in a box and sold each for $10. We went door to door the old fashioned way, says Sydney. We asked all of our friends and relatives. They raised $710. We gave it all to the family so they can try to get their house repaired or help them move into a new one, says Sydney. We dont know them very well. We all just felt really bad at what happened.

idea. While the run portion for the event is over, shoes are still being collected for the recycling portion of the event. The deadline to submit shoes has been extended to Nov. 26 because of the delays caused by Hurricane Sandy.

We are trying to collect a bunch of shoes, says Sydney. The shoe-laces will be tied together to make the longest chain of shoes. The shoes will be shipped to

Football League Passes Relief To Families In Need

in Randolph. Personally, there is nothing more heart breaking than seeing a child struggle with a life threatening or catastrophic illness, and the financial strain the families incur during these battles can be tremendous. Any little bit we can do to help, makes a huge difference to these families and speaks volumes about our association and community. Families involved in the MCYFL who have a child with a life-threatening illness are eligible to request funding. It could be a player or a sibling of a player. Funds are used to help them with expenses, says Davis. Insurance doesnt cover everything. It helps them pay some of their bills, like hotel expenses when visiting doctors in New York City. The main way to collect funds is at the MCYFL games. We hold out containers to collect money, says Davis. Every team displays a MCYFL Charities banner and announcements are made at all games. The 501 non-profit also seeks corporate-type donations and corporate sponsors for the charity. All parents of MCYFL players are asked to bring in forms to their jobs requesting donations. The league also held a trip to the Rutgers/Army football game on Nov. 10 allocating $10 of every ticket purchased towards the charity. More than 500 tickets were sold. Since 2009, weve had a situation every year, says Davis. Its very sad. At this point we havent turned any-

By Cheryl Conway he Morris County Youth Football League (MCYFL) has been a player in tackling financial strain faced by families who have a child with a life threatening illness. The MCYFL Charities is in its third year seeking funds for families facing these financial struggles. During the first two years, from 2009 to 2011, more than $40,000 has been raised helping six families thus far. The organization was created to help people in the time of need while teaching young athletes the concept of helping others. As its slogan states, MCYFL Charities organization is: People helping people. In my mind, if people help people, itll be a much better place for people to live in this world, says Jerry Davis of Randolph, secretary of the MCYFL and founder of MCYFL Charities. When people get cancer, especially when its a kid, their job goes on hold, money gets tight. We try to ease a little bit of the burden. MCYFL Charities began in October 2009, after Davis learned about a boy from the Hopatcong MCYFL team who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Davis, who has been a coach through the Randolph program of the MCYFL for the past 13 years, decided to collect money in Randolph to help this boy. I thought of the idea to start the charity and collect in all the towns, says Davis, who coaches an 8th grade team

one away. So far this year, two families are in need of financial assistance, says Davis. One family is from Mt. Olive and one is from Sparta. The MCYFL was founded 53 years ago and consists of a 23 member league for grades third through eighth. Teams exist in Morris, Sussex, Warren and Somerset Hills with games competing from early Sept. through early Nov. More than 4,000 youth out of about 3,500 families are involved in the program. Besides learning the game of football, youth are learning the importance of helping others. We are teaching youth to help others in their time of need, as stated in the mission statement. When the sixth grader from Long Valley had a brain tumor, the boys on his team all signed a get well football and gave it to their teammate, describes Davis. In 2009, each player on Davis team, including his son, taped the initials of the Hopatcong boy battling a brain tumor on the back of their helmets to express their compassion. Donations can be mailed to: MCYFL Charities, C/O APSK, 1250 Sussex Turnpike, P.O. Box 88, Mt. Freedom, NJ, 07970. Make checks out to MCYFL Charities. For more information, go to www.mcmfl.com Every little bit can help, says Davis. I hope people help people. Thats what we are trying to teach these kids.

From the Mayors Desk

here are always lessons to learn from the services which we provide at Town Hall. This is particularly true with respect to our response to the Hurricane Sandy. On November 15, 2012, the department heads met with my administration to discuss these particular issues. The nature of our electric service, improvements thereto, our response to JCPL and the Governor in terms of our level of frustration was left for another day. The after action meeting regarding the municipal operations as a result of Hurricane Sandy was held on November 15, 2012 at 9:00am in the council chambers. The general consensus was that the municipal operations, considering the breadth and magnitude of the storm went very well, but the following areas were deemed in need of improvement: I. Communications Outside of emergency alert and communications under the police department which were not subject to the after action review, keeping the public informed as the events transpire, the effort went extremely well even to the point of citizens from other communities relying upon Mount Olive for information. However the problem remains of those who do not have smart phones or electronics access how is the message disseminated? A. Solutions: 1. Establish an information hotline on 973-6910900. Provide for a separate

Mayor Rob Greenbaum

extension for emergency information set up with a voice message updated every 2-3 hours or as needed. This would enable persons with regular cell phones who have been able to charge but do not have internet or other high tech access to achieve information. 2. Enhanced use of Everbridge Communications system currently citizens can sign up directly online and register their personal phone numbers to receive communications as well. This needs to be publicized more so citizens can access this level of communications. 3. Master list of homebound seniors and other disabled There currently is a law whereby persons who are reliant upon power for their medical needs must register with local fire departments. This list is currently passed onto police dispatch that has a master list. Future procedural operation in pre event planning meeting must be the combined sharing of information in this matter between dispatch, Health Department so personal visits can be made upon the homebound to ensure their safety is ensured during events such as this. 4. Liaison with apartment managers This storm affected many residents of the residential villages and complexes in town. Effort should be made to establish a regular relationship with the managers to ensure in the event of large scale power outage they would know to respond to warming center or town hall to obtain flyers with lists of resources and where to obtain information. The managers would be tasked with then supplying their own communities with this initial information so the residents know where to turn. 5. Flyer communications

with retailers many residents that would not think of inquiring or going to a warming center will be shopping at the large retailers for water and other supplies. As part of the pre planning process flyer level information should be posted on these establishments doors informing of where local information can be obtained as well as the location of the warming center. 6. Continuity of government one of the biggest concerns was the fact that the township operations had to be run off site for the week of the hurricane. Initial thoughts were to obtain a generator for the rest of town hall but after discussion the following items were identified as more cost effective: a. Identification of heating and power needs in council chambers for temporary government setup. b. Identification of communications and internet enhancement within the room. This may be a more cost effective yet town hall centered solution where citizens can still obtain needed government services within the municipal building. 7. Variable Message Boards need and desire to enhance our current fleet of boards. These will be sought through Haz Mit grants which are usually announced in later winter every year. 8. Volunteers the response from the community was overwhelming. The only need identified was to pre plan the volunteer response into segmented operational needs (i.e. senior visits, shower facilities, warming center information, coffee and food service among other needs). The consensus was for OEM to seek to initiate one or both of the following: a. Establish a CERT team or, b. Separately establish a deputy coordinator or other command level position in

charge of volunteers. This person would then pre coordinate the list of volunteers and provide for areas of needs and responsibilities. Overall the level of municipal response was extremely satisfactory. Much public consternation

was avoided by the Township's tireless efforts and presence throughout the community. Operationally the goals as listed above will be brought up at monthly staff meetings until these issues have been resolved and

implemented. Please feel free to contact the Township with additional issues which you believe need to be addressed. Wishing everyone a Safe & Healthy Holiday . Rob

Thomas Edison Brought Modern Day Holiday Celebration to the American Household
Company. Johnsons home became the first home in 1882 to have electric tree lights. But a few train commuters got to see an electric light show a few years before the Johnson family tree was lit. In 1880, these same strands of electrical lights were strung around the outside perimeter of Edisons Menlo Park Laboratory. Lucky New Jersey train passengers got to experience the worlds first electrical Holiday light display as the trains traveled pass his laboratory location. The first electric Christmas tree at the Johnsons home had a patriotic color scheme of red, white and blue and it also rotated. The American public was not eager to use electric lights for their trees because they feared the safety on this new technology. It took a President to start an American electric tree lighting tradition. In 1895, President Cleveland had the White House family Christmas tree illuminated with electric light bulbs. The tree was decked with hundreds of multi-colored lights. Although electric Christmas tree lighting may have taken over forty years from its inception to become an American household tradition, this was not true with the phonograph industry. Realizing the love of recorded music in American households (another holiday tradition), was discovered by accident. In 1890 Edison's Talking Doll with a pre-recorded cylinder became a marketing marvel. It was the first home entertainment prerecorded sound device. The talking doll industry proved to be a disaster with more broken dolls returned than sold making the Edison Phonograph Toy Manufacturing Co a short lived venture. However, it helped inspire the launch of a new market for the household phonograph and record industry. By 1902, having a record phonograph and prerecorded music in your home was on the To Santa Wish List for many American households. In 1902 Edison had perfected

his music cylinder records with the Edison Gold Moulded Records, an improved hard black wax cylinder that could be played hundreds of times before wearing out. This music was brought to the American household through Edisons recording studio in New Jersey. It is this studio that concentrated the USA recording industry in the New York City - New Jersey area, making it the record capital of the nation. Another American Holiday tradition is watching Holiday themed movies. This is still another credit we can give to Thomas Edison. Besides a recording studio in New Jersey, he also produced cinema at the New Jersey movie studio in West Orange. This studio was affectionately nicknamed the Black Maria and was erected in 1892. One of the first family Christmas movies was produced by the Thomas Edison Company. It was the Charles Dickens' 1843 classic novel A Christmas Carol which was released for the 1910 Holiday Season. Technical limitations forced this story to be condensed into a 17 minute film. However, the special effects were the pioneering mastery of double exposure techniques. Today you can still visit the recording studio, see the Talking Doll, watch a silent movie or tour the outdoor movie studio at West Orange, NJ where so many modern American holiday traditions were started.

No Resisting State Accreditation by MOPD

Greenbaum. It was the finest hours that our police department has had since Ive been involved with the town in more than a decade. Its a great success. The MOPD is the first police department in Morris County going through accreditation, says Greenbaum. There are currently one or two other police departments that just started the process for accreditation. A lot of work went into the process, says Greenbaum. Its an extremely difficult goal to attain. Its extremely time constraining especially in these economic times

of budget and manpower constraints. When the assessors visited, the MOPD greeted them with a Static Display. Our static display consisted of an example of each of the vehicles we drive as well as officers from our agency wearing each of the uniforms we wear form the most basic to the dress uniform, says Spitzer. We also had a bagpiper, an honor guard and flag detail. Prior to the inspection, half of the departments newly authored policies (56 of the continued on page 32

By Cheryl Conway ard work and team effort may pay off for the Mt. Olive Police Department which was recently inspected by a team of assessors from the state to achieve accreditation status. On Sunday, Oct. 21 and Monday Oct. 22, two assessors from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (NJSACOP) visited the MOPD for an in depth inspection of its people, facility, equipment and behaviors as determined by policies and procedures. The assessors were Barrington Boro Police Chief Joseph Eisenhardt and Retired Lt. Dennis VanNatta from Summit Police Department. After two years of preparation, the MOPD is hopeful it will receive a certificate

for accreditation. Being recognized as a State Accredited Agency will place MOPD on the map for being the best it could be. Accreditation is important to us because it assures we are doing the best we can with whatever we services we deliver, says Police Chief Mark Spitzer. Mayor Rob Greenbaum says, We are very proud. It demonstrates that our police force is operating in a first class capacity. By being awarded this certificate, you are establishing you are a blue ribbon police department, says Greenbaum. You have all the policies up to standards. Your equipment meets the criteria and your paperwork is in order. That everything is right and good and the way it should be. It made me very proud, continues

At the inspection, the assessors reviewed the 56 remaining policies for the necessary components and also searched proof that they were actually implemented and being utilized. The standards that are included are guidelines that direct how to handle everything from firearms training, emergency response protocol, evidence room procedures, storage, traffic enforcement and arrest procedures, says Spitzer. Spitzer said the department invited input from residents and agencies. While the call or write in period, has passed we always invite input and continue to welcome comment, he says. I know we received positive feedback from residents and our colleagues in the field, says Spitzer. The Morris County Prosecutors Office, the Sheriffs Department and the County Department of Law and Public Safety were all kind enough to offer laudatory remarks. Spitzer explains The Accreditation process assures that we are utilizing best practices from a risk management perspective. The certificate we hope to have awarded recognizes us as a State Accredited Agency as certified by the NJSACOP; it is also grants us national recognition as well. The MOPD attained funds for the accreditation process through a grant made by the Joint Insurance Fund (JIF), which is a group that insures the township from a liability perspective. JIF recognizes that Accreditation lowers our exposure to law suits and lessens the awards granted in cases brought against the township, says Spitzer. The MOPD had hoped to appear before a hearing board in Princeton on Nov. 8 but that hearing was postponed because of Hurricane Sandy.

No Resisting...

Page 32, November 2012, Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News This is our first attempt at accreditation, says Spitzer. The program was led by Lt. Michael Spitzer, Accreditation Manager, and Sgt. Michael Cordileone, assistant Accreditation Manager. They have been preparing for the inspection for nearly two years and they were helped tremendously by all the officers of our department, says Spitzer. For each policy a subject matter expert was identified within the agency and that expert helped author the policies. Lt. Spitzer was assigned as the Accreditation Manager in Dec. 2010 and will continue in that role at least until the end of 2012. Fortunately for me I had the assistance of two extremely hard working and self motivated colleagues, says Lt. Spitzer. Sgt. Michael Cordileone and Cpl. Eric Anthony, who work with me in the Communications and Records Division, were extremely crucial to the success of the process. To continue the success of the program, Chief Spitzer planned a line of succession to the Accreditation Manager position. His belief was that continuity to the position would guarantee the continued success of the program, says Lt. Spitzer. I agree 100 percent. Cordileone will take over as Accreditation Manager in the near future and Anthony three years later once NJSACOP Re-Accreditation is received. My future goals are to maintain that continuity and offer my assistance in order to maintain the success of the program, says Lt. Spitzer, who faced challenges during the process. Our greatest challenge was the availability of our personnel, specifically our Subject Matter Experts, says Lt. Spitzer, an Accreditation term given to the people in a department that are the functional experts for specific responsibilities or tasks. Our subject matter experts were asked to complete several difficult tasks during this process, like developing or amending directives/policies, help train and put the directives into practice, and ensure that our department personnel were following the directives and standards by putting it in the form of proofs. Lt. Spitzer says, Each of these tasks took countless hours of dedication from all of them, who were working hard to complete their regular assignments as well. If I needed to identify one thing that I feel ensured our success it would be the overall leadership, effort and positive attitude from these individuals. I truly believe that our entire police department put forth an amazing effort and the result was praised and positive accolades from many, says Lt. Spitzer. Most importantly both assessors were very pleased with our preparation and attention to details. Lt. Spitzer is proud and credits team effort to its success. We have a tradition here of great pride and our greatest asset is our people, says Lt. Spitzer. This achievement would not have been attained without a complete team effort from our entire police department from all ranks of officer, to our records clerks, to our police communications officers. The Accreditation process has challenged us all to work harder and be even better. It is because of that hard work and the challenges we have faced jointly that we are bonded more than ever, he says. I believe that the Accreditation system of best practices will thrive in the future and continue because of the investment we have all made together today.

If you're going to be gone overnight or have to come home late it can help to have lights and a television or radio set on timers. Close up blinds and curtains at night or when you're out so no one can look inside. Anything you can do to give your place a lived-in look can eliminate the vacancy signs that criminal minds watch for, and help to improve your home's security. Safer Doors and Windows Help to Keep Out Crime

should an intruder disable their locks. Keep ground floor windows closed and locked even in warm summer months. Investing in a quality air conditioning system can help to enhance your home security efforts. Open windows are always a threat to home safety. Use home security equipment such as motion sensors, to help cover your doors and windows so that you are immediately alerted if they're opened. Protecting all points of entry is a smart way to help keep crime away from your family and make the most of your home security systems.

ost New Jersey families had it pretty rough in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Many had to endure massive power outages, gas shortages, and the lack of heat, running water and warm meals. Difficult times such as this often bring out the best or the worst in people. At St. Michaels School in Netcong, it brought out the best! When school reopened the week after the storm, many families were still without power. Some had temporarily relocated to nearby hotels. Others were making due at home.

The Multiplication of the Loaves and the Fishes

The St. Michaels community pulled together, demonstrating how much people care for one another by living in the spirit of Jesus. Through the generosity of two local restaurants and the helping hands of volunteers the school served a hot lunch to students and a dinner meal to school and church families this week. One family said, We now have no doubt that St. Michaels School is definitely the right place for our family! The school community has fed hundreds of people from all walks of life during this challenging week. The

urricane Sandy left massive devastation in her wake when she tore through southern New Jersey. Many families are left without some of the things that we take for granted in our daily lives, including food and a place to stay. Join us in helping to feed these families who are in great need of your support. Mansfield Girl Scout Senior Troop 792 is hosting an online food drive to benefit the Monmouth/Ocean County food bank in Neptune, NJ to aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Please go to http://www.yougivegoods.com/Hurricane SandyShoreRelief and click on "donate to this drive" to send your choice of food to families on the Jersey shore. Any donation you are able to give - no matter how big or small - is sure to make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you in advance for your support!

On Dec. 8 (2p.m.-7p.m.) and Dec 9 (7a.m.-7p.m.), the Christmas Market to benefit African Surgery will be held at Assumption Church on Maple Ave. in Morristown. The charity is run by a parishioner(Tom Johnson), who spends 4 months a year arranging surgery for the needy in Sierra Leone,Africa,especially the children. The Market provides financial support via the sale of artwork photos,crafts and bake goods. All vendors donate between 50%-100% of profit to African Surgery. The Christmas Market is held in the Community room in the rear of the church. Parking is available in the rear church lot and on nearby streets.

meals were donated by Simply Gourmet in Randolph and the Plaza Restaurant in Newton. The DeSarios, who own the Plaza Restaurant and are the parents of two St. Michaels students, said they are happy to help. They noted, If we are ever in need, we know we can count on our St. Michaels family to help us! When the school community first set out to help the families, some wondered where they would get enough food to feed everyone. School administrative assistant Terry Sydrock said, It was like the parable of the five loaves of bread and two fishes. When we told people there was a need, the response was overwhelming. We ended up with an abundance of food. But the food wasnt the only thing the families received at the meals. What stood out the most was the generosity of each and every family. Families provided encouragement, laughter and kindness for one another as they enjoyed the delicious meals. Many who were fortunate to have power displayed further kindness and humanity by offering those in need warm showers, laundry service, warm homes, generators and a listening ear. Principal Ernest Jackson, who is a U.S. Army veteran, said he learned a lesson years ago from his former military commander General Russell Honore that people need to take care of their own back-yard before they can successfully help people in other back-yards. At the St. Michael School, Terry Sydrock, teacher Diana Kuncken, several other teachers and staff members worked tirelessly to take care of the families in their back yard by helping to helping the school and church community to feel safe, healthy and warm during this trying time.

arties are an integral part of the holiday season, when friends and family gather to celebrate and give thanks. For holiday hosts, parties are a great opportunity to make the season even more festive with an event that guests won't soon forget. The following are just a few themes to make your holiday party as memorable as it is merry. * Christmas sweater party: Christmas sweater parties have grown in popularity over the last decade, when revelers have tried to outdo one another with the most outrageous holiday-themed sweater. Give prizes for the most outlandish sweater and let guests know early on so they can begin their hunt for a holiday sweater that's so ugly or outrageous you can't help but love it. * Christmas costume party: Costume parties aren't just for Halloween. This holiday season, consider making your holiday bash a costume party, encouraging guests to dress up as their favorite characters from holiday tales like "Frosty the Snowman," "A Christmas Carol" or any of the host of beloved holiday legends. * Caribbean Christmas: The weather

Out-of-the-Box Themes For Your Holiday Party

come the holiday season may be the one thing to put a damper on the festivities. To combat blue feelings from potentially inclement weather, consider a Caribbean theme for your holiday party this season. Rather than wearing sweaters and long pants, wear beach attire and give the party a touch of the Caribbean. Outfit your home in beach decor and serve food and drinks reminiscent of the Caribbean instead of more traditional holiday fare like eggnog and gingerbread cookies. * Film festival: Holiday movies are another tradition of the season, so why not invite friends and family over for a holiday film marathon? Include classics like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Story" and encourage guests to submit their own favorites for consideration. * Christmas karaoke: For those who love to belt out their favorite holiday tunes, consider throwing a Christmas karaoke party that allows guests to perform their own renditions of their favorite Christmas carols. Purchase a home karaoke set and ask guests in advance of the party if there are any particular songs they'd like to perform.

uring the hectic holidays, the last thing you want is to be stuck in the kitchen. When youre planning holiday menus, be sure to plan some make-ahead dishes that you can freeze or refrigerate. That way, all you have to do is pop them in the oven and you have more time to enjoy the holiday fun. Here are some easy make-ahead ideas: Breakfast or Brunch Muffins and quick breads, such as banana bread or pumpkin bread, can be made up to one month ahead of time, wrapped in foil, then placed in a freezer bag. To thaw, set them out overnight. Side Dishes Sides like stuffing and cranberry sauce can be made several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Another classic holiday side dish that you can make ahead is Cheesy Potato Casserole. Using Ore-Ida Country Style Hash Browns cuts down on prep time, so you can have the casserole ready to bake in about 10 minutes. Cover with foil and keep refrigerated until the big day, then bake for the perfect side dish for either brunch or dinner. Desserts Cheesecakes, cookies and cakes can all be made in advance. Freeze these kinds of desserts without garnishes or toppings, then add after thawing. Wrap them in a double layer of plastic wrap, then aluminum foil or a

he holidays are the ideal time to indulge in great food, delicious wine and festive meals with family and friends. Putting great food on the table is a big part of the fun, but finding affordable, quality wines to go with the food is where things get tricky. Here are a few easy tips to help you pick the perfect wine this holiday season: Think inside the box Black Box Wines are great for entertaining: each box holds the equivalent of four 750ml bottles of wine and stays fresh for up to four weeks once opened. Try Black Box Wines Merlot or Chardonnay for delicious, easy drinking wines to have on hand throughout the holidays, or to serve when unexpected guests surprise you. Light with light, heavy with heavy Serve light foods with light wines and heavy foods with heavy wines. If you pair light food with heavy wine, or vice versa, the combination won't taste bad, it may just seem out of balance. Never cook with a wine you wouldnt drink When you are cooking with wine, use a wine you know you enjoy drinking. If a recipe calls for wine, serve the same wine used in the recipe alongside the finished dish to enhance the flavors. This Herb-Roasted Pork Loin with Red Onion

Perfect Sips for the Season

Marmalade is a perfect example and is great for holiday entertaining. For more information, visit www.blackboxwines.com. Herb-Roasted Pork Loin with Red Onion Marmalade Pairing: Black Box Merlot Serves: 10 to12 Pork: 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard 1 3-pound pork loin Marmalade: 3 tablespoons butter 2 red onions, halved and thinly sliced (about 4 cups total) 3/4 cup Black Box Merlot 1 1/2 teaspoons reserved pork rub (see recipe instructions) Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste Preheat oven to 450F. In small bowl, mix rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper and mustard together until it forms a paste. Reserve 1 1/2 tea-

spoons for onion marmalade. Place pork on a rack set on top of a sheet pan. Rub herb and mustard paste over entire roast. Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 350F, and cook until a thermometer inserted into center of roast reads at least 145F. It should take about 20 minutes per pound, or an hour total. Remove from oven and let rest for at least 15 minutes. While roast is cooking, make marmalade. Melt two tablespoons butter in large saut pan over medium heat until it begins to foam. Add onions and stir to coat. Lower heat and saut, stirring occasionally, until onions are completely softened and starting to caramelize, about 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add wine, and let cook until liquid has mostly evaporated, another 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in reserved mustard paste and remaining tablespoon butter, and season to taste if necessary. Slice pork and serve hot with onion marmalade.

s the holiday season approaches, it is always recommended to take some time out to relax from the hustle & bustle of preparing for Christmas and family gatherings. Set aside some time amidst your shopping and holiday baking to attend Rutherfurd Halls Afternoon High Tea on December 9th. Enjoy the tradition of an afternoon tea, complete with scrumptious tea sandwiches, scones, and set amidst the historic backdrop of Rutherfurd Hall.

December 9, 2012 2:00-6:00pm with limited seatings at 2pm & 4:00pm. Tickets are $20 Per Person Reservations are Required Accommodations for tables of 10 or less. Tickets are available through www.rutherfurdhall.tix.com Tickets also available at Mountain Villa School M-F 83:30pm and at Rutherfurd Hall on Wednesdays from 1-4pm and at our cultural events.

Take a step back in time by reserving your spot now for this high society tea at historic Rutherfurd Hall, which will be festively adorned for the

Plan Ahead for Afternoon High Tea at Rutherfurd Hall

holiday season. Catered by Perona Farms of Andover, the high tea will include three kinds of tea and a buffet style setting of savories, scones, and pastries. Afternoon tea may have been started by the French, but it was the British that popularized this gathering. During the 1700s in England, only breakfast and dinner were served, with dinner often taking place later in the evening and leaving many wanting for something to satisfy their hunger during the afternoon. In the 1800s, tea became a popular drink and it is during this time that the Duchess of Bedford created the afternoon tea time. Suffering from a sinking feeling, most likely due to the long period of time between meals, the Duchess had servants sneak a pot of tea and some bread items into her room. Enjoying this small meal, she decided to invite her friends to partake in her afternoon delight and thus the afternoon tea was born. British high tea usually tends to be on the heavier side, as it is considered a meal in of itself. American high tea is of lighter fare, with pastries and small sandwiches to compose a menu of savories, scones, and pastries. Taking afternoon tea was a must among the social elite and also a means of preserving a tradition lent from the British. The Rutherfurd family enjoyed partaking in this pastime and now you can sip tea as Winthrop and Lucy Rutherfurd did at their Allamuchy estate. Join us for a deli-

cious buffet from Perona Farms and admire the ornate fireplaces, beautiful woodwork, and festive decorations of Rutherfurd Hall while imagining what it was like to take tea here in the early 1900s. Feel free to dress from formal to casual, whichever suits your preference. Sip tea, delight your taste buds with scones and pastries, and surround yourself with friends, family, and the spirit of the holiday season! About Rutherfurd Hall: Rutherfurd Hall has National and NJ State Historic Landmark Designation. Famed architect Whitney Warren designed the 18,000 square foot Tudor country home in Allamuchy, NJ in 1902. Warren also designed Grand Central Terminal in New York City as Warren and Wetmore Architects (1903-1911) and Frederick Law Olmsted & Sons designed the landscape plan; they are most well-known for Central Park in NYC, and the Mall in Washington D.C. The Vision for Rutherfurd Hall is to become a self-sufficient enterprise that protects and preserves its historical, cultural, and architectural integrity; all while providing educational and enrichment opportunities for the residents of Allamuchy and the surrounding communities. We are a growing cultural center and museum. Go to www.rutherfurdhall.org and click on Education and Events to learn more (and sign up for our monthly e-blasts!)

Take a gander at Gandolph from Eleventh Hour Rescue. This very handsome 3 year old, American Staffordshire Terrier mix, has wonderful light brown hazel eyes that look up to you in the most adoring way, with a smile on his face and often with his head cocked slightly to one side. Always willing to please, he is a very active and playful boy. On the leash, although strong, he is easy to correct to keep him on track. When taken off leash in the fenced-in play area he is then in his favorite place to romp and play. Any toy will do, as long as there is plenty of action involved. He has a wonderful, short, smooth, silky coat that requires only limited grooming to keep him at his best. Once he has been properly exercised, he will rest quietly at your feet awaiting your next command. To read more about Gandolph, to see all of our adoptable pets, to see our upcoming events, or to make a donation, please visit: www.ehrdogs.org or call: 973664-0865.

Here is Kiwi Max from Eleventh Hour Rescue. This handsome man is a 6 year old Pit Bill mix with a big head and a big heart to match. He was found as a stray, completely undernourished, emaciated, and suffering with a case of Heartworm. Since that time, he was received loving care in a foster home; he has gained his weight back, and has been successfully treated for his Heartworm condition. Through it all, he remains a well behaved, loving, and faithful companion. He is now ready for the next phase of his life, to find that loving family to adopt him and bring him home at last. He knows some basic commands and gets along with other dogs. To see more pictures of Kiwi Max as well as a video, please visit: www.ehrdogs.org or call: 973-664-0865 for more information.

Meet the newest Odd Couple from Eleventh Hour Rescue. This is Sophia and Blanche. They were both found together in their house left abandoned when their owners moved out. Sophia is a small, 5 year old, female Bassett Hound mix weighing 50 lbs. Unfortunately, due to a severe eye condition, she is now totally blind and cannot see anything. However, she still exhibits a great deal of confidence in her demeanor and she is able to get around very well on her own. And she is such a pretty girl. Blanche, her partner, is a very tiny, older, fragile, 8 lb, Pomeranian/Shih Tzu mix about 9 years old. She prefers a quiet home with lots of opportunities to take a nap. Both dogs are low maintenance and rely on each other for comfort, so it would be best if they both get adopted together.

Even so, we can draw some conclusions. Let alone that Romney and the Republicans should be ashamed of how their side ran their campaign (one of the most dishonest campaigns in my lifetime), it is clear that the Republicans offered us a return to their childlike belief that all government is bad and only private enterprise, unfettered, laissez-faire private enterprise, is good. Look, were all capitalists but grownups understand that, as history has shown, we need clear, strong, well policed and enforced government rules that provide a fair playing field for everyone, where nobody gets an unfair advantage, nobody is defrauded, and we protect our vital country, including our air, our water, our lands, our food, and our health. Romney pushed on the economy. Yes, were still struggling. But remember, the Great Recession was not caused by regular middle class working folks. This is not a classic business cycle recession. It was the result of unfettered financial institutions running amok. They were allowed to do so with the blessing and downright encouragement of the Republicans hackneyed nostrums about the inherent goodness and selfcorrecting nature of private enterprise. If Romney had been elected, we would be right back there, giving a free hand to job creators. If I have one wish this post election season, it is to see that ridiculous term, job creators, put out to pasture. First, all wealthy people, most wealthy people, are not creating any jobs, any more than you or I. Businesses do not hire people based upon their income taxes. Business 101: companies come into existence and expand to provide a service or product in order to meet a DEMAND for that service or product. No demand, no service or product. Even Henry Ford famously understood this when he decided to pay his factory workers much higher than prevailing wages so that those workers might have enough money in order to buy Ford cars. But todays Republicans, no matter how many times their supply side and trickle down beliefs are shown to be fantasy, just keep on pushing the same old same old. The share of both wealth and current income for Americas middle class has taken a beating over the past several decades. Without wealth, without sufficient income, how can there be sufficient continued on next page

By Harlin Parker he presidential election is over. We all won. Well, at least most of us won. Whether youre Democrat, Republican, unaffiliated, even unregistered to vote, we Americans won with President Obamas reelection. Only some truly vile characters, like the Koch brothers, Carl Rove, and even Grover Norquist, lost. Although I fear theyve only lost a battle as they and their jolly band of Tea Partiers have already made clear that they will continue their war against the rest of us. Yet even with Obamas win, this was not a great election. You know, we can have a discussion of the clearly dysfunctional primary system, where small, unrepresentative states like Iowa and New Hampshire have laid claim to some kind of entitlement to always be the starting points. We can have a discussion about how, while it is true that the USA is a republic comprised of sovereign (such as they are) states, and thus the Electoral College is allowed to dictate the winner of presidential elections, damn the popular vote total. We might even have a discussion about how each state, oftentimes how each county in each state, gets to direct how elections are conducted, where people can vote, how they vote, when they vote, and how even today (or maybe especially today) so many states just cant seem to do this function, this most basic and profoundly important function, competently. But to have a discussion on any of those topics would be downright depressing, given the level of ineptitude and dysfunctionality that exists today. And I dont want to be depressed. Instead lets talk about some good news. President Obama won reelection, both in the Electoral College, very decisively, and in the popular vote, quite convincingly. The popular vote totals do show, though, how polarized the American electorate has become. Mitt Romney did, however, win the Confederacy. And what does that tell us? Obamas reelection means weve all won if for no other reason than because, if Romney had won, most of us would have lost. Yes, Romney took different positions at different times on a whole host of issues so that it became downright impossible to know what exactly, if anything, he truly believed about anything. That constant equivocation, the unrelenting prevarication,

Congratulations to the Winning Party

By Luigi Luciano he election is over. I am not a sore loser by any means. The voters cast votes and re-elected Obama. We now have to move on and live with the consequences of the voters actions. I must only assume that because he got in that the economy is in good shape and we will see a great improvement going forward. Voters felt we have been going in the right direction. With that said, then we should not hear from a single person who voted for Obama that things are not good. If they lose their job and can't find one then oh well you voted for the direction we have been going in. I do not mean that sarcastically but with sincerity that these people thought we are going in the right direction and voted for no change. When the Military gets cut those Military states like Virginia lose jobs that's OK, this was the right course you wanted to continue on. When the true unemployment

numbers come out around 9% or more that's OK as well. Stay the course things will get better and the people that are out of work that voted for him will understand things take time. Remember he inherited such a mess it takes time. When the Bush tax cuts expire and the average middle class family pays around $2500.00 per year or more extra in taxes,if you voted for him that's ok because you are among the wealthy and can afford to pay more. Last when your health insurance eventually is run by the government and you need care and are rejected for your age that's ok too if voted for Obama, you did your job you are just to old to be worth spending money on. It will also be better for the country because Medicare and Social Security will be going bankrupt soon and if more people can't collect it leaves more for the young. continued on next page

more than just their disproven economic ideas. Regrettably, todays Republicans are little more than a bunch of very angry, older white people and religious zealots who, to borrow Romneys phrase, view themselves as victims. Listen to them. They profess

demand? There are only so many wealthy people. They can only demand so many cars, so many houses, so much food. We need a prosperous middle class much more than we need a prosperous elite class. But, of course, Republicans are about continued from previous page I look forward to the huge inauguration event that the Obama's will throw and should with the economy recovering and things getting better we should all celebrate this great event. People out of work and being thrown out of their homes who voted for him should be thrilled by this. He deserves to have a huge party even though you cant afford to eat. If your luck goes the right way you can be added to the food stamp program and you too can now throw a party. Life is good for Obama, I look forward to more weekly parties at the white house, seeing his family on vacation after vacation and watching him tee off on that 18th hole wishing I can play golf as good as he does. Life is good. I am happy that I was wrong thinking that we were going in the wrong direction and glad the voters of

Congratulations to the Winning Party...

Obama opened my eyes to how great things are and will be. So congratulations to all those that voted for Obama you all appreciated the most negative campaign in the history of the country, you believed everything the Obama camp put out without wasting time following up to see what was really true. In the end you will get exactly what you deserve and the people that did not vote for him will as well. So I thank you all who voted for Obama as you made me realize the errors of my way. I knew I spent too much time reading and researching the facts. Obama is always right!!! Herbert Hoover said a chicken in every pot, the theme here was Kool Aide for everyone. Comments?

themselves to be the only true patriots. They view themselves as the only people who work, who produce. They are the makers. The rest of us are the takers. Facts of course, as Romneys own campaign made clear, are irrelevant. And these folks clearly have a perverse interest in other peoples sex lives and an unhealthy, un-American, desire to dictate to others, especially women, what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. You know, this is America. Religion is fine for those who believe and desire to follow it in their own lives. Just dont force your religious beliefs on the rest of us. Yet today, Republicans are gripped by religious zealots who insist on using the power of government to force everyone to adhere to their narrow religious doctrines. And the party is overwhelmingly white. Even with outliers like Governor Bobby Jindal and Governor Nikki Haley, the Republican party tent is shrinking into electoral irrelevancy. For those of us who want real choices, who want real, honest, policy debate, this is not good. Republican denial and self-proclaimed

virtue continue, alas. Tea Partiers are still here (even Star Ledger conservative columnist Paul Mulshine has had it with them). They claim Romney lost because he wasnt a true believer. Republicans claim that the Democrats somehow stole the election, rigged the results by, among other things (and I had to laugh out loud about this) suppressing the vote. The only voter suppression efforts that took place in this country were all the voter identification laws pushed in several states by Republicans. We could go on, as there are any number of issues to discuss. Lets end with one thought: Dont panic. Dont worry. Even if you didnt vote for Obama, I promise you the sun will come out tomorrow. This is a great country filled with capable, smart, driven people. This countrys best days are still ahead of it. But if you truly believe this country is in an inevitable, irreversible decline, move. Go. Why would you want to stay? Adios. We wont miss you. The rest of us have work to do.

udiences can begin the holiday season with a family classic brought to life in this musical extravaganza at the Sitnik Theatre in the David and Carol Lackland Center starting Thanksgiving weekend. Featuring a cast of 50 actors on the stage, The Wizard of Oz is a musical tradition following the story of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Lion and Toto, too. These beloved characters visit Hackettstown on their way to the Emerald City, as CSC presents the ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANYS (RSC) adaptation by Frank Gabrielson and John Kane, with Music and Lyrics from the MGM motion picture score by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg. The RSC said this adaptation came about when the Artistic Director of the company asked for a show that could be performed annually over the Christmas season, so this show is especially made for families to celebrate the holiday season. Artistic Director Carl Wallnau stated, You only have to say the title of the show to people, and a smile comes on their face. This production includes lively dance routines and familiar songs such as the Academy Award-winning song Somewhere Over the Rainbow as well as an added show-stopping dance number, The Jitterbug, which was edited out from the original movie.

ove over Food Network! St. Michael School can now claim they too have a few good chefs of their own! Thanks to Miss Cianfaglione, our first grade teacher and cooking club instructor. Miss Cianfaglione grew up in a home where cooking meals was more of a passion than a necessity. She wanted to share this enthusiasm of cooking with the students at St. Michael School so she started a cooking club. Miss C enjoyed introducing different spices and different tastes for the children to try. For the past few weeks, 15 students met twice a week to make a variety of foods that included garlic bread, pizza, baked brie with apricots, Oreo truffles and many more delicacies! When asking the students what they like best about the cooking class, they all have a lot to say!

St Michael School Have A Few Good Chefs

Ciara Fernandez proudly states that the Oreo Truffles were her favorite. Makayla Pelletier claimed the garlic knots were a close second! For the final class the students made a baked Ziti dinner with garlic bread, salad and chocolate covered strawberries and apples for dessert. 35 honored guests including Fr. Nick, Mr. Jackson, a few Knights of Columbus, family members and friends enjoyed the delicious dinner that was made with not only their hands,

but their hearts as well! School Principal Ernest Jackson complimented Cooking Club leader and instructor Jennifer Cianfaglione for her dedication to the school and her hard work in developing a wonderful school program.
