L
ocal author and his-
torian, Robert Jones,
has just released his
fifth book on Americas
Civil War. His first release
in 2007 was The Civil War
Canteen and three years
later it was followed up with
a second edition. Loaded
with photographs and
descriptions, it covers just
about every type of canteen
used by the Civil War sol-
dier both North and South
during the period of 1861 -
1865.
This was followed by
Battle of Gettysburg The
Relics, Artifacts, &
Souvenirs, which was a first
of its kind. Thousands of
books have been done on
the Civil War; some say that
excluding religion, it is the
most written about subject
in history. Gettysburg was
the largest and costliest bat-
tle of the Civil War, and has
always been one of the lead-
ing topics, but nothing was
written about the relics and
artifacts which were recov-
ered from the battlefield, or
the pieces from the early
museums, or those brought
home by returning veterans.
This book not only covers
those items, but also the
unique souvenirs from the
late 19th century, right up
until todays examples
over 725 photographs.
Anxious to get todays
youth more involved in
American history, Mr. Jones
published his first childrens
book titled Children at the
Battle of Gettysburg Their
Local Author Releases Fifth Book on the Civil War
Unforgettable Summer. The
story is fictional, but based
on actual events just prior to
and through the 1863
Pennsylvania battle. He
says It lets children learn
about Gettysburg and the
Civil War in a fun and excit-
ing way without even realiz-
ing it. The gory details of
war were purposely avoided
and the kids today can
almost find themselves
directly in the middle of
probably the most earth-
shattering part of Americas
history.
His last project was Civil
War Artillery A Pictorial
Introduction. It lets the
reader take a trip through
time beginning with the
infancy of artillery during
the American Revolution
until the final shots of the
Civil War were fired at
Appomattox, Virginia in
1865. There is a mix of ord-
nance and battlefields,
along with the personal
experiences and fears many
of the men had to face while
serving on the crew of a
cannon. With over 500 pho-
tographs, (many previously
unpublished), one gets a
real feel what it was like in
the artillery during the Civil
War.
Now in the midst of the
150th anniversary of the
Civil War, Mr. Jones felt
this was the ideal time to
release his latest book The
Civil War Soldier His
Personal Items. He states
that The personal objects
left behind by the Civil War
soldier are small windows
which allow us to get a brief
glimpse into the most
momentous part of his life.
When I came across an item
to use in this book, (what
we might consider today as
trivial), I tried to figure out
why it was so important to
him.
In todays world of dis-
posable goods, who would
take the time to meticulous-
ly inscribe their name or ini-
tials in such an inanimate
object as a razor or soap
dish? We may think it was
done to prove ownership,
maybe it could identify him
if killed or wounded, or
maybe it was just out of

boredom. Some of these scenarios might be
true, but I think it was much more than that.
He knew the war would be scrupulously
studied by future generations. Many of
these veterans carefully packed away their
menial possessions as a personal time cap-
sule, hoping that someone in the future
would discover them and if only for a brief
moment, remember their small part in
American History.
This book took me almost two years to
complete, in part because I kept coming
across additional items to include which I
felt were pertinent to telling the story. I was
fortunate to have Mr. William Chemerka
write the Foreword; an author, actor, histo-
rian and lifelong New Jersey educator
(often commentating on the History
Channel and C-Span). There are few people
who know more about Americas history.
There are almost 600 photos in this 151
page book and it also has a full index.
About the Author:

Jersey, originally from the Passaic area but
now residing in Stanhope for many years.
He is an Army veteran, having served with
the artillery in the 101st Airborne Division
in Vietnam. Over the years, Robert has been
well known for his displays and exhibits
throughout New Jersey, including such
places as The Newark Museum, The New

and numerous other locations throughout
the state.
In 2003 he was in the movie Gods and
Generals during some of the First Manassas
and Chancellorsville scenes. He has written
several articles for The North/South Trader
Civil War magazine and has contributed and
been acknowledged in several Civil War
related books. Some of these works involve

during the Civil War.
Mr. Jones will be doing a book signing

T
he Blood Center of New Jersey
(BCNJ) is appealing to all eligible
blood donors and the community at
large for help with the current blood supply.
Current inventories are at dangerously low
levels and less than half a day supply is avail-
able for NJ hospitals and patients. Summer
collections are usually slower than normal but
this year the State Health Department is
reporting a 12% reduction in collections from
last year state wide. This has created a deple-
tion of readily available blood products for
hospitals and trauma centers. Our first major
objective is to make sure the blood is ready
when patients are in need and given our cur-
rent inventory levels, we are urging the pub-
lic to respond stated Tina Ilao, President and
CEO for the blood center. Demand continues
to outpace collections and BCNJ is asking the
public for their help in replenishing the cur-
rent blood supply. Anyone 17 years or older,
in general good health and who has not donat-
ed in the past 56 days are asked to consider
blood donation at this time. The Blood
Center of New Jersey requests that you visit
their web site at www.bloodnj.org to find a
donation site nearest you. In addition, dona-
tion centers are located in Parsippany and
West Orange to help with your donation.
Blood center officials note that each unit
of blood donated is broken down into several
components including platelets, plasma, and
red cells, so one donation can save up to three
lives.
The donation process is safe and simple.
Donors are first asked medical history ques-
tions and given a mini-health check, includ-
ing pulse, blood pressure, and iron level. The
actual donation of blood takes just 5 to 7 min-
utes, and then the donor is given a snack and
juice. The entire process generally takes
under one hour. Donors will receive a free
cholesterol screening.
16 year olds can donate with a consent
form signed by accompanying
parent/guardian, weight 120 pounds and be in
general good health. There is no upper age
limit for donors provided they meet health
requirements. Donors should bring a signed
or picture form of identification and know
their S.S. #. Please eat a meal one hour
before donating and drink plenty of water.
For those who have recently traveled out-
side of the United States and for other eligi-
bility questions, please call the blood center at
973-676-4700, ext. 132.
If you require any additional information,
please call 1-800-652-5663, during regular
business hours.

A
lthough Crescent Cove and River
Styx present tough problems for
the Lake Hopatcong Commissions
weed harvesters, Hopatcong Mayor Sylvia
Petillo says the borough is not receiving any
more complaints from residents of those
areas having difficulty launching boats.
Now were getting complaints from the
main lake, Petillo said.
While the combination of the 5-foot
drawdown over the off season and a persist-
ent freeze all winter kept weed growth
down, the shallow areas still saw persistent
growth. One of the two small weed har-
vesters owned by the Lake Hopatcong
Commission would expedite the process,
but neither is operational because parts
needed for repairs were stolen in transit,
according to Dan Bello of the state Division
of Parks and Forestry.
The four large weed harvesters are work-
ing the lake, bringing out about 27 cubic
yards a day, Bello said. Harvesting started
on June 6 and 800 tons of weeds were in by
July 18. Two barges take the weeds from the
harvesters to the shore where they are
trucked to a landfill in Morris County.
Bellos said a large percentage of the
weeds were from the River Styx and
Crescent Cove area.
A late start in 2013 resulted in only 270
tons harvested by July 18.
The small harvesters should be on the
water by mid-month. One is designated for
Lake Musconetcong.
The Commission agreed to loan the Lake
Musconetcong Planning Board a small har-
vester to help with severe weed-control
problems in that small, shallow, man-made
lake. In return for that agreement, the state
Department of Environmental Protection
granted the commission $40,000 toward the
weed program. Lake Musconetcong has one
large harvester that isnt efficient in the
shallowest areas. The large harvesters have
a 24-inch draft and the small ones have a
12-inch draft.
The state also chipped in another
$10,000 for repairs, Ellis said.
Commissioner Dan McCarthy said he
considers the loan to the Lake
Musconetcong Regional Planning Board a
pilot project to be reevaluated at the end of
the season.
Several members of the Lake
Tough Problems for Lake Hopatcong Commissions Weed Harvesters
Commission were initially skeptical of the
loan of the harvester and asked about alter-
natives at several commission meetings.
Ellis explained it would cost $60 million to
dredge Lake Musconetcong.
Mark Gruber of Hopatcong asked why
chemicals arent used on the weeds.
Chemicals are not appropriate, Kerry
Kirk-Pflugh, DEP representative to the
commission, said. Killed weeds create fer-
tile ground for re-growth.
Weed-eating sterile grass carp are only
allowed in bodies of water 10 acres or less,

Lubnow said, He said the state is afraid they
will damage the eco-system. He said the
weeds are particularly bad this year because
it has been several years since the commis-
sion has been able to afford a comprehen-
sive harvesting program. However, septic
management in Jefferson Township for the
past three years has helped the health of the
lake in general.
Weed harvesting started on Memorial
Day weekend this year.
One of the large weed harvesters was
taken to Neptune City on Monday, May 19,
to assist in the removal of 250 million
pounds of bunker fish that died in the Snake
River. Other state and commercial har-
vesters are also working on the fish kill,
Kerry Kirk-Pflugh, the state Department of
Environmental Protection representative to
the Lake Hopatcong Commission said.
After the fish kills was cleaned up, the har-
vester was sanitized before being brought to
the lake, Park Superintendent Steve Ellis
said.
Bellos last report to the lake commis-
sion detailed the areas harvested: from the
north side of Bertrands Island to Sharps
Rock and the Landing Channel, King Cove,
Crescent Cove and River Styx. The two big
harvesters were anchored in Ashley Cove
and will work from there toward Brady
Bridge.
The Liffy Island area must be hand-har-
vested because of the presence of water
chestnuts which can be spread with the
automated harvesters, Bello said.
Residents have expressed concerns that
the harvesters may kill fish, but Bello said
few fish are actually caught in the harvester.
Dan McCarthy of the Lake Commission
said he rode the harvester a few years ago
and saw fish scramble away. Sometimes
when a fish gets caught, the operator will
reverse the belt to free the fish.
Park Superintendent Steve Ellis said the
lack of oxygen in places where herbicides
were applied can kill fish.
The State Park website now has a page
with contact information and other details
about the harvest, Ellis said.

rea residents are invited to enjoy a
day of family-friendly music for the
cost of canned food donations that
will support the Community Foodbank of
New Jersey. Foodstock 2014, organized by
Sound of Humanity, Roxbury Recreation, and
Roxbury Arts Alliance will take place at
Horseshoe Lake Park, Roxbury, NJ, on
August 30, from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
For less than $10 the cost of four 16
ounce cans of food a family of four can help
New Jersey residents who dont have enough
to eat and hear eight different bands that are
donating their time and talents to support this
event, said Larry Salomon who heads Sound
of Humanity. All of the canned goods that
will be collected will go directly to the
Community FoodBank of New Jersey, which
has over 1,000 partner organizations through-
out the state of NJ.
Community FoodBank of New Jersey
(CFBNJ) distributes more than 40 million
pounds of food a year, helping feed more than
900,000 hungry people in the state.
Every day, we see hard-working families,
struggling seniors and vulnerable children
who face hunger, said Julia Kathan, Director
of Public Relations and Communications for
CFBNJ. Our latest numbers show that there
are more than 39,000 people in Morris
Country alone including nearly 16,000 chil-
dren who dont always know where their
next meal is coming from.
In some cases, the neighbors who are hav-
ing difficulties feeding their families are
working, and might not qualify for most
forms of public assistance.
We recently met a Morris County mother
who, like her husband, has a job but cant
make ends meet as they try to raise their two
young daughters. This womans eyes filled
with tears at a local food pantry. She told us,
Its simple. Food helps us live, said
Kathan.
Among the bands that have volunteered to
play for Foodstock 2014 are Matt Mead Band
(Elizabeth, NJ), The Bent Benjamins (West
Chester, PA), and Under a Ton (Roxbury, NJ).
Each of these bands will play music that
every member of the family can enjoy, said
Salomon. Additionally, there will be food
vendors on hand so you can buy lunch for the
family without having to miss a single note.
A few activities for younger kids will also be
available, at an extra cost, if your children
want to do something else during the festi-
val.
This event is made possible by the gener-
ous support of local businesses: Aires
Jewelers, D Lovenbergs Portable Toilet
Rentals, Kuiken Brothers, Merry Musicians,
PanAVid, The Powder Bar, and ShopRite.

etcong is the place to be on
September 7th. Its the annual
Netcong Day. The action starts at
10:30am on Maple Avenue with participants
competing in a 5K run which will take them
around Lake Musconetcong. From 11am to
5pm, Main Street will be filled with ven-
dors, booths, music and family fun. About
4,000 people attend each year, making this a
standout event which is held rain or shine.
The 5K race is a U.S. Track and Field
certified event. Netcong Mayor Joe
Nametko said that the race brings in people
from throughout the tri-state area and those
who have participated have commented that
is so picturesque running around Lake
Musconetcong.
The major shared the race draws in a
variety of participants at a number of levels.
For example, last years female winner
could not accept her award because she was
part of a NCAA sanctioned team. There are
people doing less than 6 minute miles. In
contrast, the mayor said that you can see
families run with kids in a carriage. There
are moms, dad, and kids who walk or run.
Information on registering for the race
can be found on the town website at
www.netcong.org
Theres so much to do: shop at vendor
stands, there will be demonstrations like the
one done by a karate group, two DJs..
shared Nametko as he started to list the
types of things that will be at the Street Fair
part of the day.
He emphasized the family oriented fun
of the day and noted that Netcong Day is
held the first weekend after school starts,
when families are trying to get out and do
something together.
Among the booths there will be a silent
auction booth run by the Stanhope United
Methodist Church. Trustee president,
Amanda Rush, of Netcong, shared that pro-
ceeds from the auction will go toward the
churchs operating expenses and to its
Raise the Roof fund. The latter is being
used to raise money to fix the louvers on the
historic church.
Netcong resident Sharon Rosequist will
be helping to run the booth of the North
Jersey Triple Crown pageant (part of the
Miss America system) which will be
manned by its current titleholders and
Samantha Ruzzuto of Long Valley, the
Spectators watch as participants come in from last year's 5k run.

County pageant, noted that the queens will
answer questions on the pageants. Also,
they will be having a bake sale to raise

place to be. It is a day to celebrate Netcong
and enjoy some great family fun.

erry Cook thinks of Lead East as a
work of art in progress. It is Cooks
Appleton Productions of Long
Valley that has brought the event, known as
the worlds biggest 50s party, to life for 32
years. Each year theres something differ-
ent for spectators to enjoy. Meanwhile, it
keeps true to its theme: celebrating the
innocence and fun of the 1950s with cars,
music, B movies and dance. This year from
Wednesday, August 27 through Sunday,
Aug. 31st the parking lots of the Parsippany
Hilton on Route 10 will turn back the hands
of time welcoming 1,800 classic cars, plus
inside having a variety of bands and doo
wop groups, sock hops, and more.
So whats new this year?
Mr. Joe Jangles is a one man performer
who hails from Detroit. Cook saw him as a
street performer in Texas and knew he
wanted Jangles for Lead East.
Mr. Joe Jangles, a real one-man band, will be strolling around and performing during this year's
Lead East.
Lead East Brings the 1950s to Parsippany
I love this guy! said Cook.
Cook shared that people will see Jangle
everywhere from Friday Sunday.
Something that Cook has long wanted
for Lead East is a Caribbean steel drum
band. This year, Lead East has one, in the
person of Mustafa Alexander from
Brooklyn. Alexander will be playing in the
hotel lobby atrium on Saturday and Sunday
from 9 11:30am.
Teaching the Shag will be Tony and
Suzy Eldrith of North Carolina. Shag is
similar to the jitterbug, but a little more
complicated. It is big in the South, shared
Cook. Shag lessons will be given on Friday
and Saturday.
The showing of B movies at a drive-in
in the Hilton parking lot is a Lead East tra-
dition. There will be three B Godzillia
movies shown this year. However, it is the
first time Lead East is showing a Korean
Godzilla movie. Cook shared that it has
Godzilla dancing to rock and roll.
There will be a variety of vendors and a
chance to be an early Santa. Food, toys,
collectibles, and automotive-themed items
and more will be on sale. Also, the Military
Transport Association will be set up among
the outside vendors in front of the Hilton,
collecting unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots.
All toy donations collected will be delivered
to the US Marine Reserve Unit at Picatinny
Arsenal. They will be distributed during the
holiday season to needy children in the
North Jersey area.
.Of course, Lead Easts roots is
cars..and there will be plenty of them.
People from about 22 states will make the
trip to the Hilton to show their cars and help
add to the 50s atmosphere. Cook has long
said that Lead East is a family event and
that is evident by the people who join in the
tradition year after year and those just dis-
covering it for the first time.

ynn Zaremba remembers getting under the blankets
as a child and reading the Bible with her older sister,
Gail. Gail was studying for confirmation. That sim-
ple sibling moment of sharing would plant a seed that
would grow into a calling and eventually lead Zaremba to
what she is today: the new pastor of Stanhope United
Methodist Church in Netcong.
My sister, Gail, was my greatest mentor, shared
Zaremba. She said that her sister had a very good spirit her
whole life. Gail was very involved in church and led her
sister into that.
It was in her 20s that Zaremba got her calling to be a
pastor; however, it would be much later that the calling
would be realized.
She worked for Burgdorf Realtors, where shed spend 38
years before entering the ministry. At Burgdorf, she has
worked as a secretary, relator, and then did financials. She
went from selling to a desk job so that she could be by the
phone in case her son, Anthony, needed her.
Her late son, Anthony, was born disabled. She recalled
that after his birth, her life became running from the hospi-
tal to the doctor.
You dont have the time [for much else], she shared.
Tending to her sons needs, she put her wants and needs in
the background
Time was tight and the family had got away from going
to church.
However, nine years after Anthony, a daughter, Amy,
was born. Later, getting Amy in Sunday School, was the
impetus that got Lynn back in church. The pastor of that
church liked to give everyone responsibilities. One of the
jobs Lynn got was doing a Bible exploration section of
Vacation Bible School.
Zaremba said, It was a refreshing, renewal.
Then, she was encouraged to be a layspeaker, but since
she had no childcare for her son, couldnt do it. When Amy
got old enough, she babysat her brother and Lynn was able
to substitute for area United Methodist pastors by deliver-
ing the Sunday message.
The first time I preached, I was sold, she said. That
decision, the calling from my 20s, was there. She just had
to make it happen.
Now, as of July, she is the new pastor at Stanhope United
Methodist Church. It is her first pastorate.
Reflecting on the journey her life has taken, Zarembra
shared two lessons taught to her by her children.
My son taught me how to care for people and love
unconditionally, she said of Anthony who died three years
ago.
My daughter (Amy, now 21) taught me how to live
again, she shared.
Given her journey, it is not surprising that pastoral care
is important. Its my number one thing. Bring them Gods
truth in a way that is understandable, she said.
Zaremba also sees as a strength the business background
that she brings to the church. She believes it is true for
everyone when she says, You can see how carefully He
[God] has planned your path.
Her birthday sign is Aquarius and there seems to be no
Lynn Zaremba is the new pastor at Stanhope United Methodist
Church.
The New Face at Stanhope United Methodist Church
coincidence it that. She is the self-proclaimed water
queen of her family. She loves swimming, anything that
gets her near the water. Even washing dishes, she
smiled.
In addition, Zaremba loves family gatherings, spending
time with friends, sewing and is addicted to doing jigsaw
puzzles.
She also wants to find out more about her new location.
[Im ] looking forward to meeting the people of this
community, learning about this community and becom-
ing a part of the community, she shared.

gave the audience a glimpse of the challenges that mental
illness presents to friends and family.
Lou Schwarcz, President and CEO of the MHAMC,
inspired the audience with his fervent words, thanking
everyone for their tremendous support, but also challenging
them to become more aware of the plight of those served by
his organization, saying, By helping people in our county
move from homelessness to housing, from fear to dignity,
from coldness to warmth, and from disenfranchisement to
the claiming of property, we need a sustained community
effort.
Celebrating the Angels Among Us, was the overarch-
ing theme of Food for Thought this year, and there were no
shortage of angels helping MHAMC.
We all agreed that angel is a perfect metaphor for the
many community members, volunteers and staff that make
our good work possible, said Barb Flynn, MHAMC
Director of Development. This event would not be possible
without the generous support of our sponsors, the restau-
rants and stores that provided such great food and bever-
ages, and everyone who had a hand in making this years

of visual arts at County College of Morris (CCM),
now has had one of his paintings selected for exhibition at
the 15th Annual Wills Creek Survey in Maryland.
Selected for that exhibition is his painting As One, an
imaginative transparent combination of male and female
nudes.
The Wills Creek Survey is a juried art exhibition open

States. This years exhibition takes place September 13

sented to artists during the Opening Reception and Awards
Ceremony on September 13.
In May, Gwynne, of East Stroudsburg, PA, was present-
ed with the first-place award in the Pocono Arts Councils
Members Exhibition for his painting Delicate Sky.
Four of his paintings also were chosen for the annual
juried Westmoreland Art Nationals, which took place in

T
he foods a person eats can increase his or her risk of
developing various types of cancer. Sodium nitrite
and sodium nitrate are widely used as preservatives,
antimicrobial agents, colorings, and flavorings in cured
meats and many other products. Nitrates and nitrites are
commonly found in hot dogs and lunch meats. Once they
are consumed, nitrates turn into nitrites in the digestive sys-
tem, and it is believed that nitrites react with certain bodily
chemicals and turn into cancer-causing carcinogens known
as nitrosamines. Green, leafy vegetables and root vegeta-
bles contain naturally occurring nitrites as well. However, it
is believed that nitrites in vegetables do not have the same
effect on the body as artifically added ones, so the benefits
of eating vegetables outweigh these risks. But avoiding
nitrites does not mean people have to give up their favorite
foods. Many types of bacon, hot dogs, bologna, and other
foods now come in nitrite-free varieties, which is possible
byusing salt, vinegar and sugar rather than sodium nitrite to
cure the meat.

J
obs in health care are growing fast. In fact, the health
care and social services industry is projected to add
more than 5,000 jobs in Morris County between 2010
and 2020, according to the New Jersey Department of
Labor. With this growth, many local health care facilities
are looking to fill positions, but they need qualified appli-
cants. In order to fill these vacancies, people need to be
trained and certified. But what happens if someone is
unable to afford tuition for training courses or make future
loan payments?
Since 2011, County College of Morris (CCM) has
helped individuals start a career in health care by providing
no-cost training through the Health Professions Pathways
Grant. This grant was developed specifically to help recipi-
ents of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF),
General Assistance or other low-income individuals who
qualify, by reducing financial and other barriers to educa-
tion and training in a wide-range of health care occupations.
The Pathways Program is literally changing lives. To
date, more than 300 students have participated in the grant
program at CCM. Students have told us that they went
from a job they hated to a career they love. Many have said
they would not have been able to obtain this training with-
out the program because they never would have been able
to afford tuition.
CCM recognizes that the cost of tuition is not the only
financial barrier for many individuals in their pursuit of
education and job training. In addition, funding for related
expenses, such as transportation, tutoring, books, uniforms,
study guides, exam and license fees and even child care
may be provided through subsidies.
We understand the challenges of making a change and
work to help applicants and students through the process.
The college has specially trained staff to assist individuals
along the way, from determining whether they are eligible
to selecting courses and finding jobs. We have regular pre-
application information sessions at CCMs main campus
that are free to attend. Classes and on-site training are held
at CCM, Morris County School of Technology, Morristown
Medical Center and at Saint Clares Hospital.
CCM offers training for a wide range of health care jobs
from Certified Nursing Assistants and Home Health Aides
to Certified Medical Coding, Billing Specialists and Dental
Radiographic Technicians. Programs vary in length from
three weeks up to a year, depending on the field of study.
To inform people about the program, CCM is working
with nonprofits, health care facilities and other local
resources. Our employer partnerships are key to helping our
students find employment opportunities. Local hospitals,
long-term care facilities, and local medical practice groups
know CCM and the top level training we provide, so they
have come to expect that the students certified through the
Pathways Grant program will be successful members of
their staff.
We know that people in Morris County impacted by the
economic downturn or other circumstances need help find-
ing good jobs, so the Pathways Grant Program, offered
through the Northern NJ Health Professions Consortium
(NNJHPC), is an important piece of addressing these needs.
Consortiums like the NNJHPC are a model for how com-
munity colleges can work together to better identify eco-
nomic growth areas, form partnerships with local employ-
ers, assist applicants with the training necessary to become
employable within the health care industry. Our participa-
tion in the consortium has allowed us to be an integral local
resource by expanding our reach across northern New
Jersey to partner with county, state, federal and various
human services organizations. We are an intermediary
between available jobs and our students who want to pursue
or improve their careers.
In its Ready to Work report, the Obama
Administration noted they will work with leaders in [high
growth] industries to promote partnerships between educa-
tion and workforce institutions in order to create training
programs that help Americans succeed in these growing
fields.
CCM is doing just that right here in Morris County and
the Pathways Grant is allowing us to help others pursue
their dreams. There are still many grants available. To learn

O
n Tuesday, July 8, the Northern New
Jersey Health Professions
Consortium (NNJHPC) and County
College of Morris (CCM) acknowledged
students who have completed various health
care training programs at CCM. The college
also recognized CCM instructors and staff,
St. Clares Hospital and community part-
ners during a special recognition ceremony
on CCMs campus.
Congratulations to our students who are
here with us tonight, many of whom were
impacted by the economic downturn, on
their great accomplishment, said John
Johnson, Site Coordinator for the Northern
New Jersey Health Professions Pathways
Grant program. Your purpose, drive and
determination have helped you complete
the program and will help make a better life
for you, your families and communities.
Dr. Earl Johnson, Director of the Office
of Family Assistance within the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services
Administration for Children and Families
also addressed the students, saying, Your
success is our success. This is a special
moment for you and for our country
because we can guarantee that you will be
there to help people in their hour of need.
This program is not only about jobs, its
about you helping to make this country
healthier and stronger and raising you and
your families up. The grant program helps
low-income individuals receive no-cost
health care education and training by elimi-
nating the roadblocks that would otherwise
reduce access to these opportunities. CCM
offers more than 10 different health care
training programs throughout the year,
which vary in length from three weeks up to
a year, depending on the field of study. To
date, more than 300 students have complet-
ed their training through the grant program
at CCM.
The program really changed my life,
said Nancy Williams, who became a
licensed practical nurse through the pro-
gram. I always wanted to be a nurse and I
was able to go to school, get a grant and not
have to pay back a loan. And now Im doing
what I always wanted to do. I have two
nursing jobs in geriatrics and pediatrics, and
I love it.
Samantha LasSalandra said, This pro-
gram has changed my life completely. I was
at a job that I hated and now Im at a career
that I love. Everyone involved was com-
pletely driven to help me succeed. Dr.
Edward Yaw, President of County College
of Morris added, We are delighted to be
part of this multi-county effort to help
increase access to education and certifica-
tion training in high demand healthcare
areas. We are grateful to our instructors and

8th recognition ceremony held on CCMs campus.
partners who make this program a success,
and hope that we can continue to change
lives through this program.
This is about bridging the gap for the
generations of people who do not feel con-
nected to the workforce or to the American
Dream, Dr. Johnson concluded. Our stu-
dents have been through a lot, and it has
taken a lot for them to get here. As gradu-
ates, they provide hope to others, because
now they know that there are opportunities
available that can help make a better life for
themselves and their families. Thank you to
our students for having the guts and deter-
mination to succeed in this program.

COOKING CLASSES
ARE BACK!
Starting in September!
Using pastry cutter, cut-in shortening and
peanut butter, until mixture resembles small
peas. Drizzle mixture with cold water until
mixture is moist and holds together. Roll out
on floured surface to at least 1/16th of an inch
thickness.
Using 3-by-5-inch index (recipe) card for
template, cut into sixteen 3-by-5-inch shapes.
Re-rolling works fine. In middle of eight
shapes, smear 1/2 heaping teaspoon peanut
butter and heaping teaspoon of jam on top. Be
careful not to go to edges. Using fingers, wet
edges with water and place another piece of
pastry on top. Press all sides well, and using
fork press all edges to secure. Using fork,
gently poke tops in four places so steam can
escape.
Place inch apart on parchment lined baking
sheet. Bake for 1314 minutes until starting
to brown around edges. Cool on rack.
Whisk together drizzle of choice in small
bowl. Drizzle over cooled tarts.

S
tuttering is a frustrating and embar-
rassing problem for millions of peo-
ple, but it can be especially tough on
elementary school-age children. Help is
available for parents, teachers, and speech-
language pathologists at most public
libraries in the form of a DVD designed to
help school-age children who stutter. Some
libraries have an older video version. It's
meant to give speech-language pathologists
the tools they need to deal with stuttering in
this age group, but it also offers good ideas
for parents and teachers," said Professor
Peter Ramig of the University of Colorado
at Boulder. Ramig is one of five nationally
recognized experts appearing in the DVD
produced by the nonprofit Stuttering
Foundation. The DVD features students
from first through sixth grade, some of
whom talk about their experiences with
stuttering. They talk openly about the teas-
ing they face from classmates and how their
stuttering sometimes makes them feel about
themselves. "We focus on demonstrating a
variety of therapy strategies that are appro-
priate in working with children who stut-
ter," adds Ramig. He appears in the DVD
along with speech-language pathologists
Barry Guitar, Ph.D., of the University of
Vermont, Hugo H. Gregory, Ph.D., and June
Campbell, M.A., of Northwestern
University, and Patricia Zebrowski, P.D., of
the University of Iowa. These five experts
answer questions about stuttering, refute
myths and misconceptions, and present
examples of therapy sessions showing how
stuttering can be reduced. More than three
million Americans stutter, yet stuttering
remains misunderstood by most people,"
said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering
Foundation. "Myths such as believing peo-
ple who stutter are less intelligent or suffer
from psychological problems still persist
despite research refuting these erroneous
beliefs." The 38-minute DVD, entitled
Therapy in Action: The School-age Child
Who Stutters, produced by the 67-year-old
nonprofit Stuttering Foundation is available
free of charge to public libraries nation-
wide. Other libraries that will shelve it can
contact the Foundation at 1-800-992-9392,

mudez.org.

Inspirational Bird Cage:
When NASA's robot, CURIOSITY, explored the sur-
face of the planet Mars, it reportedly found no evidence of
ESPN, empty beer cans or pornography, proving that our
astronauts were, indeed, the first men to have visited there.
A word to the wise is usually unnecessary.
RUDYARD KIPLING REVISED: "If you can fill each
unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance
run, Yours is the world and everything that's in it, And a
heart attack before you're fifty-one."
Politics is the modern American art of getting money
from the rich and votes from the poor by promising to insu-
late each group from the greedy, self-serving goals of the
other.
Roseanne Barr and others like her exhibit a touch of
crass.
Too many cooks tend to make far more dirty pots and
pans than does one cook who is working without assistance.
Few things spotlight the illogic of American politics
more clearly than the selection of our Vice presidential can-
didates. After millions of dollars are spent in primary elec-
tions, the choice of our second-in-command is left, entirely
and arbitrarily, in the hands of the successful candidate,
with no input whatever from the electorate. Why not, one
wonders, bestow that honor on the second choice of the
nominee's party? This would seem to be a better idea than
anointing the hand-picked, politically expedient and often

How come words of wisdom are so often in conflict?
E.g., "Haste makes waste" and "He who hesitates is lost."
Query concerning a respected old saying: If beauty is,
in fact, only skin deep, just what are we looking for:
Glamorous guts? Cute kidneys? Lovely livers?
Why do my children's birthdays make me feel older
than my own do?
Tell me how come we tend to be so apprehensive about
tearing off those "Do Not Remove" tags from new pillows,
blankets and mattresses? Like, what's the worst they can do
to us if we get caught in the act or are later ratted out by a
hostile bedmate?
You can succeed as a parent by simply making your
children feel safe, guided, wanted, loved and worthwhile.
Most of the other merit badges and demerits are likely to
befall you accidentally.
Give your pets and your kids everything they want and
you'll probably end up with good pets and troublesome
kids..
Always leave people you love with warm words each
and every time you part company with them; it might well
be the last time you'll ever see them in this world.
Rather frequently, people who say that something can't
be done are interrupted by other people who are actually
doing it.
Leisure, praise and rewards are best enjoyed when they
have been really earned.
By and large, as long as you feel reasonably good,
older tends to be more gratifying than younger.
Have you ever noticed that the things you love to do are
the things that you do best?
It makes little or no sense to expect that our children
will listen to our advice and ignore the conflicting examples
we set for them.
The best way to enjoy your children is to love them for
what they are, rather than thinking about what you'd like
them to be or what they might have become.
A good goal in life is to be all that you can be that you
WANT to be; chances are slim-to-none-that you'll ever be
more than that.
Most people really want advice for the same reason that
drunks want lampposts - for support, rather than for illumi-
nation.
Most people who are fond of saying that money isn't
everything usually have more than enough of it.

A SENSIBLE RULE TO FOLLOW: Don't speak -

A
uthors Diana Drew and Robert Grayson took an
inspiring sojourn as they wrote the new book
"Jewish Threads: A Hands-On Guide to Stitching
Spiritual Intention into Jewish Fabric Crafts" (Jewish
Lights Publishing). Exploring the intriguing stories behind
each of the book's 30 Jewish fabric craft projects from
throughout the United States and Israel, the authors redis-
covered many of the Jewish traditions underlying hand-
made fabric crafts.
Members of the Temple Hatikvah Sisterhood will retrace
the steps the authors took on the way to this spiritual awak-
ening on Sunday, Sept. 7, at 9:45 a.m., at the Sisterhood
Membership Kickoff Breakfast, at the synagogue, 58
Pleasant Hill Road, in Flanders. The Sisterhood
Membership Kickoff Breakfast is free and open to the pub-
lic.
In a special talk, titled "Jewish Threads: Crafting a
Jewish Life," the authors will discuss the spiritual journey
they took in writing the book and the Jewish traditions that
suffuse these crafts. Jewish cultural heritage will come to
life through the stories of these fine handcrafted pieces.
As part of this special event, attendees will have a
chance to hand-sew Feelie Hearts for grieving children.
These small, stuffed fleece hearts, which are given to chil-
dren who have suffered a terrible loss, are donated to organ-
izations both in the United States and in Israel.
Deep-rooted, spiritual inspirations and religious convic-
tions about life and death, peace and war, birth, marriage,
healing, family life, holidays, new beginnings, and how
those beliefs influence the work of fabric artists--all are
interwoven into the fabric of "Jewish Threads," which takes
readers on a journey of sacred creativity. The book presents
an array of fabric craft projects, plus the backstory behind
each of the pieces featured in the book--how and why they
Authors to Speak at Temple Hatikvah Sisterhood Membership Kickoff Breakfast
were made and what sparked the idea for each one. Among
the projects spotlighted in the book are tallitot (Jewish
prayer shawls) and Torah mantles, shulchan (lectern) covers
for the synagogue, Purim puppets, a knit seder plate, an
apples & honey Rosh Hashanah challah cover, a ChanuCats
quilt for Chanukah, and many more.
A section titled "Inspirations" includes stories of five
more projects that inspired the authors to write the book,
including a quilted chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy), cre-
ated collaboratively by members of National Council of
Jewish Women, West Morris Section, of which Drew serves
as co-president. Grayson, a prize-winning former daily
newspaper reporter and magazine writer, writes books for
young adults.
Says Drew, an award-winning writer and book editor, "
'Jewish Threads' brings together the disparate threads of my
own life--Judaism and Jewish observance, sewing and knit-
ting, writing and editing--while stitching together the
inspiring stories of fabric artists from throughout the United
States and Israel. Collectively, these personal stories, and
the projects that spring from them, form a patchwork of
modern-day Jewish life. The part introductions, written by
Robert Grayson, place these crafts in historical perspective,
with tales from the Jewish tradition that give these fabric
crafts added resonance today."

T
homas Edison could also be called the founding
father of modern day insomnia. The electric light
bulb has changed mankinds sleeping habits forever.
We are no longer influenced by natures schedule but our
own regulated sleeping schedule. Edison took advantage of
his own new manmade daylight schedule to become a well
known insomniac. But, he was not alone in his insomnia.
Recently discovered records show the unimaginable work
timetable he had with his team of 7 lab assistants that fol-
lowed his same condensed sleeping schedule.
They jokingly called themselves The Insomnia Squad.
They were a group of driven experimenters Edison selected
in 1912. They reached the hallmark of project commitment
when they intently worked for five weeks both day and
night to arrive at a solution Edison was obsessed in finding.
His focus was on the Diamond Disc record. There was a
million dollar inventory of phonographs sitting in ware-
houses but no records for them. He was in a predicament
because there were still bugs to be worked out in the man-
ufacturing process of the Diamond Disc record before it
could be brought to market.
Edison was known for his insomnia but never to this
extent where it continued for weeks on end accompanied
with a team. His wife Mina would check up on him when
his laboratory work called him away from his home life for
too long a period. This kept him from falling into extreme
sleep deprivation and physical neglect. She even placed a
bed in the lab library so he could get some bed rest.
However, Mina was not there to control this notorious 1912
insomnia marathon. Mina had unexpectedly rushed to
Akron, Ohio, to tend to her dying mother. This allowed
Edison to continue his work without any regulated controls
in his sleeping schedule and also driving his team to work
around the clock along with him.
Thomas Edison never slept a long restful night. If he
was intent on a project, his schedule was to work on it until
he was tired and then he'd lie down to sleep. He claimed
that when he awoke from these short sleeping intervals he
was refreshed and ready for work. Mostly, Edison believed
in the 15 minute cat naps that he often did seating at his lab
desk chair. Napping in a sitting position at the office desk
made it hard for his employees to tell if their boss was deep
in thought or napping. Edison said he personally enjoyed
working 18 hours with short catnaps each day and an aver-
age of four to five hours of sleep per night. According to
Edison Most people overeat 100 percent, and oversleep
100 percent, because they like it. That extra 100 percent
makes them unhealthy and inefficient."
Most of Edisons team were enthusiastic about their
work and felt honored working on these revolutionary proj-
ects with their famous team leader. There were relaxing fun
moments too. His lab had a pipe organ, Edison played it
after completing their work and his assistants would have a
sing along. Edison had the ability to inspire his assistants
and gain their loyalty and dedication by working hard
alongside them and joined them in the camaraderie of
unwinding occasions together too. When a new employee
Thomas Edison Was Famous for His Insomnia and Had a Team of Insomniacs Too
asked him if there were any work rules, Edison replied
"There aint no rules around here. Were trying to accom-
plish something."
You can visit the laboratory where he averaged 18 hour
work days and see the bed his wife Mina placed in the
Laboratory Library. Please visit The Thomas Alva Edison
