etting doused by one bucket of ice water may sound
bad, but what about being doused by several buck-
ets of ice water? One late August Sunday morning,
people driving by the Stanhope United Methodist Church
watched as children of all ages helped Pastor Lynn
Zaremba take the ALS ice bucket challenge. That act cre-
ated a ripple effect with many challenges being made and
met that day.
The idea of the challenge is to have a person get him-
self/herself videotaped pouring a bucket of ice water over
his/her head or having a bucket of ice water poured over
his/her head. Either the person takes the challenge or
makes a donation to The ALS association (or both). Also
by posting the video on social media, like Facebook, the
person taking the challenge brings about awareness of ALS
and encourages other to donate to the cause.
What is ALS? According The ALS Association,
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as
"Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative
disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal
cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord
and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the
body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in
ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neu-
Pastor Lynn Zaremba is surrounded by buckets of ice water while
taking the ALS challenge.
ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
rons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control mus-
cle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action pro-
gressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease
may become totally paralyzed.
Pastor Zaremba had been challenged by a member of the
congregation, Connie Worthington of Stanhope.
Worthington had already withstood the challenge, twice,
after being tapped for it by her husbands friend, Mt.
Arlington policeman, Ryan Sherburne. A key part of the
challenge is getting it video-taped. When it was discovered
Worthingtons son didnt get the first dousing in their back-
yard on tape, she did a retake, both times using a big buck-
et of ice.
[ALS] awareness is very important, said Worthington
when explaining her reason for taking the challenge. She
then passed the bucket, so to speak, to Zaremba.
Zaremba chose to take the challenge in the front of the
church after services. She invited children from the Sunday
School, plus others to take a bucket and do it together. Ages
from pre-school to close to 90 gathered around Zaremba
and let the ice water fall while others taped it.
I was a little in shock [after doing it], but I thought it
was fun and I would have done it again, said Zaremba.
She noted how incredible it is that the ice bucket chal-
lenge has gone viral, bringing about greater awareness for
ALS. She also noted that the gathering of people there,
including those who doused her, was symbolic.
I firmly believe all churches should welcome people
from all walks of life, no matter where you are [in that
walk],
After taking the challenge, it was time for Zaremba to
challenge someone else. She challenged three people:
Pastor Jo-Anne Wisner of Delaware Valley United
Methodist Church, Hopatcong resident Scott McKenna, and
Netcong resident Josh Rosequist.
Both McKenna and Rosequist took the challenge that
day. McKenna, a volunteer fireman with the Hopatcong
Fire Department was going to pass on the challenge to his
fellow firefighters. Rosequist, a recent Lenape Valley High
School graduate, was passing on the challenge to family
members Mackenzie Rosequist, a 3rd grader at Netcong
Public School and Nicholas Milone-Clapp, a 2nd grader at
the school

workshop at the New Jersey Music
Educators Association Summer Workshop
on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at The College
of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ. The workshop,

Common Core: You Want Us to Teach
What? focused on how these veteran music
teachers have successfully aligned their
music classes to the Common Core. The
purpose of the workshop was to ease the
minds of the music teachers as they begin to

English-Language Arts Common Core
Standards and shifts, sharing examples of
lesson and unit plans with Common Core
alignment, and group discussions.
Mrs. Longo and Mr. Zimmermann have

throughout New Jersey and at NJMEA state
conferences. This workshop served as their
first collaborative effort in professional
development. Mrs. Longo is the Chorus

technology and performance. Mr.
Zimmermann is the Band Director at

A
SeaPerch Program grant was award-
ed to Mrs. Mary Lou DeCaprio,
Netcongs middle school science
teacher. SeaPerch is an innovative underwa-
ter robotics program that provides educators
with the resources and tools to guide their
students in building an underwater
Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). The
SeaPerch Program is a great way to get stu-
dents interested in Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Math (STEM). SeaPerch
aligns to the national science standards and
lends itself well to interdisciplinary projects.
STEM science is at the core of this program,
with a special focus on marine engineering.
Other academic learning that is supported by
SeaPerch ROVs Granted to Netcong School Science Department
this project are: Math, Scientific Inquiry,
Earth Science and Ecology.
This program was brought to Mrs.
DeCaprios attention by a Netcong parent
and fellow science educator. After evaluat-
ing the programs value, Mrs. DeCaprio
applied for the grant and received approval
for it in August 2014. Netcong will incorpo-
rate this program, worth approximately
$1700, into the current 8th grade Physics
curriculum. Netcong Elementary School
has the good fortune of being located near a
lake, which will allow Netcongs 8th
graders, the Netcong Newtons, the oppor-
tunity to test out their completed vehicle
sometime in the spring. SeaPerchs slogan
Teach, Build, Learn fits perfectly with the
Netcong School objective to promote active
learning and discovery in our students, said
Mrs. DeCaprio. Stay tuned for the results of
this program in the Spring of 2015. If youd
like to learn more about SeaPerch and its
mission, please visit:

A
t the August 26, 2014 Netcong
Board of Education meeting,
President Bernadette Dalesandro
reiterated the announcement that their cur-
rent Chief School Administrator (CSA),
Kevin Carroll, will be leaving the district in
good standing to take a pure Superintendent
position in Green Brook, New Jersey.
Thank you to Mr. Carroll for his service
here at Netcong and we wish him well at his
new job, Dalesandro said.
The Netcong CSA position included Mr.
Carroll maintaining the position of
Principal and Superintendent. When Mr.
Carroll submitted his resignation letter,
which was approved by the Board at the
July 29, 2014 meeting, the Board deliberat-
ed on how they would like to proceed with
filling the position. The end result was to
split the administrative positions to search
for a pure Principal while searching to find
a part-time Superintendent. This decision
to split the positions will be a savings to the
district by essentially getting two adminis-
Netcong School Superintendent Departing
trators for the price of one. Two committees
were formed and the Board began the
process of advertising, interviewing, and
narrowing down both sets of candidates.
Gina Cinotti was named Principal at the
August 14, 2014 meeting. She comes to the
district with 18 years of educational experi-
ence as a math teacher, guidance counselor,
and administrator. Ms. Cinotti will be leav-
ing her position as Director of Guidance in
Hopatcong School District to take her first
principalship at Netcong. She has deep fam-
ily roots in Netcong and has stated publicly
that she cannot wait to begin.
Mr. Carroll will remain as the CSA
through early October and the Board is still
searching for a Superintendent. They have
conducted a thorough search and offered the
positon to candidates, but no final agree-
ments have yet been made. They will con-
tinue to search for the right fit for Netcong
School.

Jersey. It is made up of boys, girls and par-
ent volunteers primarily from the towns of
Netcong and Stanhope, and Byram
Township although all towns are welcome.
LVSC currently manages 5 different soc-
cer programs designed to introduce a child
to soccer, develop skills, and allow them to
compete in a team environment. The pro-
gram is designed so those children who just
want to have fun can do just that. At the
same time, for those who are more serious,
the opportunity is there to enter into com-
petitive play via our travel program. LVSC

fields and other amenities are provided to us
to use. LVSC is just a volunteer parental
structure, which provides administration

t a special Board Meeting on
August 14, 2014, the Netcong
Board of Education unanimously
appointed Gina Cinotti as the new Netcong
Elementary School Principal. Ms. Cinotti is
a local resident of Netcong with a long fam-
ily history in the town. She comes to the

ence ranging from high school math

trator. She left her position as Director of
Guidance at Hopatcong Borough Schools,

Netcong is a special place and I am lucky
to have this opportunity. I am ready for this
career move and committed to staying at
Netcong for a long, long time. I want to
bring administrative consistency and stabil-
ity to Netcong School. I am eager to work
with the teachers, students, and parents, as
well as connect the school and community.
Board President, Bernadette Dalesandro
stated, Ms. Cinotti is a professional, expe-
rienced, data driven educational leader who
the Board and I believe will improve the
academic lives of the 300 students she will
be charged with. Together, I believe the

Cinotti will raise the bar for academic
excellence and student achievement in

P
lastic bottles are routinely recycled into other plas-
tic items and new bottles, but they can be turned
into much more. When you were sipping water
from that bottle, you probably never thought of the possi-
bilities of wearing that very plastic. However, fabric
innovators are turning disposed plastic into durable gar-
ments. When compared with producing virgin materials,
recycling plastic products helps save up to 70 percent on
energy costs. Recycled bottles can be broken down into
pellets of pure recycled plastic that is virtually indistin-
guishable from virgin plastic. Then the pellets are turned
into yarn, which can be woven as-is or mixed with other
yarns to produce polyester clothing. According to Waste
2 Wear, a recycled clothing company, anywhere from 12
to 20 bottles can be saved per garment and transformed
into anything from robes to shirts to uniforms. Recycled
clothing presents yet another way to turn trash into treas-
ure.

Alfonso reports. "We compress the pink
extension into the hair without causing any-
harm to the client's own hair. They look
great on women of all ages, from kids to sen-
iors, with some customers getting two or
three at a time. They can be easily cut to any
length the client wants and will stay in as
long as maintained properly,client should
come in with clean hair,without any condi-
tioning at the root area,a moisturizing sham-
poo and or conditioner is not used on the
root area so that extension will not slip out.
Alfonso is particularly excited about
working with groups for this worthy
fundraiser. Last year he was invited to
Morristown Medical Center to apply exten-
sions for staff during the shift change out-
side the caffeteria, and we are in the process
of setting up a schedule to do it again on 2
mondays in Oct.

and hours.High school Cheerleader and
sportgroups from the local area have also
come in as a team to show their support.It's
a fundraiser and a team building excerise all
in one.

tage of the hair extension services. A jar will
be available at the front desk to anyone
wishing to help the fight for a cure.

wo local sisters who lost their father
to lung cancer two years ago are
stepping up awareness of the silent
killer by chairing and walking in the fifth
annual Northern New Jersey Free to
Breathe Walk later this month.
The event is set for Sunday, Sept. 21, at
Horseshoe Lake in Succasunna, with regis-
tration at 10 a.m., rally at 11 a.m. and the
5K walk beginning at 11:30 a.m. The walk
is being hosted by Free to Breathe, a nation-
al non-profit organization founded in 2001
to support lung cancer survival through
research, fundraising and public awareness.
Keri Rutkowski, 32, of Morris Plains,
and Kellie Smith, 35, of Morristown have
so far raised about $23,000 since getting
involved in Free To Breathe in 2011, after
their father was diagnosed with lung cancer.
Their goal for this years walk is to reach
$25,000, and to continue to raise awareness
of the disease; reduce the stigma that lung
cancer is a smokers disease; and encourage
others to get involved in the organization.
I couldnt save my dads life but we are
trying to save other peoples lives, says
Rutkowski. My dad did not have an easy
way out. The pain level he had to endure, no
one deserves that.
Their father, Mike Smith, of Morris
Plains was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung can-
cer in Feb. 2011 after worsening back pain
led to blood tests and a cat-scan. Rutkowski
recalls him complaining of back pain as
early as Dec. 2010, the same time the bliz-
zards came, she says. We figured he was
getting older. He was the type of guy who
shoveled everyones driveways.
But when the back pain got progres-
sively worse, Mike Smith went for addi-
tional tests which first showed an infection
in the lower back and then a weekend trip to
the emergency room for a biopsy of the
infection. After a cat-scan and bone scan,
they learned on Wednesday, that it was
Stage 4 Lung Cancer- Skima Cell
Carcinoma, with a tumor on his left lung
that had spread around his windpipe and
down parts of his spine.
After radiation treatments to shrink the
tumors on his spine, followed by
chemotherapy, Mike Smith- who was a
retired supervisor of a local water company,
volunteer firefighter and president of the
Mt. Kemble Fire Co.- fought the cancer for
14 months. He died on May 4, 2012 at the
age of 61, leaving behind his wife Peggy
Smith of Morris Twp.; son Matt Smith of
Manville; and two daughters-Keri and
Kellie.
While blindsided with the sudden
Step Up To Lung Cancer Awareness In Upcoming Walk
news when he was diagnosed, Rutkowski
and her family tried to stay positive
throughout the battle of fighting the disease
and she says this attitude helped in the end.
My father and I and all of us are very
positive people, says Rutkowski. We said
these are just statistics but we are going to
kick its butt. He fought for 14 months. I
really think the positive outlook helped
him.
As part of their positive mindset, Kellie
Smith found the local cancer walk- Free to
Breathe in 2011 for spirits and cheering
him on, and organized a team of about 30
walkers to participate. That was the only
year their father attended the walk, but the
ladies have been advocates ever since as
committee members last year and co-chairs
this year requiring greater involvement,
more planning and sponsorships.
New this year is a Kids Dash that invites
youngsters to complete a 100 yard dash.
In their fourth year participating, the two
sisters had 15 signed up on their team as of
press time, with hopes to have 25.
Deadline to register online is Sept. 17 for
$20; mail-in registration is Sept. 16 for $23;
and on-site registration for $25.
Besides raising money to support the
continued on next page
Like us on facebook www.facebook.com/mypaperonline Tell Them You Saw It In The Musconetcong News, September 2014, Page 15
Free to Breathe Organization, the two sis-
ters have three goals as part of their mission
in fighting the disease.
When looking at statistics, they learned
that lung cancer is the silent killer, with
symptoms that exist but are often ignored as
something of a lesser degree.
Who thought back pain would be stage
four cancer? asks Rutkowski, regarding
her fathers diagnosis. It put a pit in my
stomach. A former smoker, Mike Smith
quit smoking 17 years prior to his diagnosis
because he wanted to live longer, says
Rutkowski.
If people had known what the symp-
toms are, situations if you are not feeling
right, if there was more knowledge or more
tests that could have been done? she ques-
tions. There are tests for prostate cancer or
breast cancer; why is there nothing being
used that is preventative?
One of the symptoms of lung cancer is
common stuff like a cough, but then the
diagnosis is often a cold or allergies. If its
persistent, they really need to get checked.
People call it allergies.
While attending an Action Summit for
Free to Breathe in Sept. 2011, Rutkowski
learned her roommates story of how she
was an advocate for her own health when
she took it upon herself to fight for a cat-
scan and they found she had early stages of
lung cancer. After having a lobectomy, the
woman from Ohio survived. She was an
advocate for her own body; she fought for
what she needed and won.
Rutkowski recalls her dad always had a
little cough ever since she was little. Even
with a regular check-up they said he was
fine. He needed a cat-scan or the blood
results.
Besides encouraging others to become
advocates for their own health, the two sis-
ters would like to reduce the stigma with
lung cancer. While smoking is the leading
cause for lung cancer, exposure to radon is
the second leading cause to the disease.
If you have lungs you can get lung can-
cer, says Rutkowski.
New cases of lung cancer shows that 10
percent to 15 percent of lung cancer victims
never smoked, totaling 20,000 to 30,000
non-smokers diagnosed every year. Other
risk factors include second-hand smoke,
radiation, asbestos, air pollution and some
organic chemicals.
For homeowners, Rutkowski recom-
mends checking radon levels every two
years to make sure that remediation is not
required. Every year Im checking it and
making sure its under zero, she says.
When we learned about lung cancer we
learned how much funding they werent
getting, says Kellie Smith about the scary
statistics. She says, People turn their
head because of the relationship to smok-
ing and how its self-inflicting. But You
dont have to smoke to get lung cancer.
People dont realize you just need lungs to
get lung cancer.
According to statistics, lung cancer takes
the lives of around 160,000 Americans each
year more than the total deaths from
breast, prostate and colon cancers com-
bined. Although lung cancer is the leading
cancer killer, it is still the least-funded of
all major cancers.
Their third goal is to market Free to
Breathe and encourage others to get
involved in the community.
We found that being with people was
very healing, it helped us cope, says
Rutkowski. People are very quiet about
lung cancer; its hard to talk about. Its nice
to know there are people who share that
experience and are trying to raise money
and awareness.
In addition to the annual walk, Free to
Breathe encourages other community
fundraisers. Rutkowski and Smith hosted a
pasta dinner last year raising $3,000; and a
charity garage sale this year that raised
$1,500.
Free to Breathe is a wonderful commu-
nity, concludes Smith. Its goal is to double
the survival rate by 2022, not an easy task
since lung cancers five-year survival rate
of 16 percent has not changed in more than
40 years, making the need for research
funding more critical than ever. In compari-
son, the five-year survival rate for breast
cancer has advanced to 98.6 percent and
prostate cancer to 99.2 percent, according to
statistics.

here is a new bagel place in town and
its so much more than fabulous
bagels.
Mt. Olive Bagels on Route 46 East in the
Paramount Plaza in Budd Lake, recently
opened up its doors offering customers not
only an assortment of bagels but a wide vari-
ety breakfast/lunch menu. Whether eat in or
take out, customers can enjoy breakfast sand-
wiches or platters, pancakes, French toast, a
variety of cheese spreads, homemade soups,
appetizers, salads, deli or hot sandwiches,
Paninis, cheesesteaks, burgers, wraps,
smoothies, a bakery and even catering.
As a Mt. Olive resident for 25 years, the
owner wanted to own a restaurant in town and
knew the vacant store would be an ideal loca-
tion for a fantastic bagel shop.
I really like the bagel business, says
John Kalavriziotis, of Flanders, owner of Mt.
Olive Bagels. An experienced restaurant
owner, Kalavriziotis has owned Piscataway
Pizza for the past five years and formerly
owned New Orleans Restaurant in North
Branch for 16 years before selling it five
years ago.
This was a great location, he says. I
always traveled far, to the other restaurant in
Piscataway. I wanted a store in town.
At Mt. Olive Bagels, customers can
choose from 12 to 15 varieties of bagels at
any given time, with one specialty every day
like the French toast bagel. The bagels are
hand-rolled and kettle-boiled, fantastic,
excellent, large, soft, hot and fresh, served
with various homemade cream cheese
spreads, or salads such as whitefish, chicken,
tuna or egg.
For breakfast, customers can start their
day with farm fresh egg omelettes, egg plat-
ters, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes and
even French toast, home fries, bacon, sausage
and even Taylor ham.
Some bakery items include muffins, crois-
sants, crumb cakes and pastries.
For lunch, there are bagels of course, or
seven different salads such as garden, chef,
Caesar, grilled Portobello or Mandarin
Grilled Chicken which includes spring mix,
grilled chicken, dried cranberries, almonds,
mandarin oranges with orange citrus vinai-
grette dressing.
The sandwich menu offers a great variety
of Boars Head Premium Deli choices such as
turkey, roast beef, pastrami and corned beef
on different breads with optional toppings; as
well as salad sandwiches; sloppy Joes; five
different Paninis such as the Tuscany with
ham, salami, roasted peppers, provolone and
pesto mayo; and hot specialty sandwiches
such as Grilled Chicken or Veggie Focaccia,
or Bacon Chicken Ranch Ciabatta, Grilled
Ruben, Eggplant Parm Sub; and even beef or
chicken gyros.
Lunch menu items continue and include a
variety of burgers, wraps, cheesesteaks and
triple decker club sandwiches.
More Than Just Bagels At Mt. Olive Bagels
Homemade soups are offered along with
appetizers such as buffalo wings, chicken ten-
ders and mozzarella sticks.
For parties or occasions, Mt. Olive Bagels
offers a catering menu for breakfast, salads,
sandwich platters and giant foot heroes.
For beverages, hot drinks such as coffee
and tea are sold, along with a wide variety of
cold drinks and homemade low-fat vanilla
yogurt fruit smoothies such as strawberry
banana, chocolate banana oreo, peach para-
dise or create-your-own.
The shop is open for breakfast and lunch
seven days a week: Mon.-Fri., from 5 a.m. to
4 p.m.; Sat., 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sun., 6 a.m.
to 3 p.m.
Kalavriziotis earned his skills and experi-
ence as a hands-on-operator by working in
the restaurant business since graduating high
school. He worked at his brother-in-laws
restaurant, The Travelers Diner in Dover,
from 1984-1992 in all areas from bus-boy to
chef.
His vision with Mt. Olive Bagels since
opening its doors June 11 is to provide a
great place for bagels, with great food,
great service, dining experience, great bagels,
great things.

G
aining self-confidence, greater ath-
leticism, and learning cognitive and
social skills are all benefits of
becoming involved in gymnastics.
Cheryl Moorman, Director of CS
Gymnastics, of Flanders, is celebrating 30
years of success and knows her students
have been succeeding right along with her.
Moormann said she is pleased with the
longevity of CS Gymnastics, and notes that
she has taught students who, years later,
grown with families of their own choose to
bring their kids to CS Gymnastics for class-
es.
Helping generation after generation of
individuals become involved and skillful in
the sport of gymnastics is an admirable
thing, and Moormann notes that there are
indeed physical benefits as well as non-
physical advantages.
Our goal is to promote all of them, she
said.
In general, physical benefits include
gaining muscle strength, healthy bones, and
flexibility, while non-physical benefits
include healthy brain functions, improved
academic achievements, social skills, and
reduced risky behavior.
Whether you view gymnastics as a com-
petitive sport or as recreational fitness,
Moormann said it has grown to become a
respected industry over the years. CS
Gymnastics is, in fact, an official club mem-
ber of USA Gymnastics, a national govern-
ing body of the sport based in Indianapolis.
On the CS Gymnastics website,
www.csgymnasticsinc.com, it notes that it is
the friendly, fun place of positive begin-
nings. It is dedicated to the total develop-
ment of each gymnast.
Some students work hard to greatly
improve their athletic skills by way of gym-
nastics, and some make it their goal to com-
pete.
Several of Moormanns students have
gone on to compete in college and she said
she is happy that her staff and facility can
provide a great stepping stone for such
students.
She said that as the industry grew over
the years, owners of gymnastics instruction-
al centers sometimes would each take on a
different focus and provide services
accordingly. Some owners will focus on the
success in fitness and life skills instructional
classes offer, others will strive to develop
potential Olympic athletes, and still other
owners will provide services and classes that
fall somewhere in between these scenarios.
Moormann also works hard to make her
courses quite effective and practical. On
their website, there are many courses offered
and each have their specific focus and style,
as well as age and skill level, of course. And
Moormann also takes into account that fam-
ilies may have multiple siblings, hectic
schedules, and that each child may prefer
different activities. One can see there is a
great deal of thought and integrity that goes
into the design and objectives of each of the
classes.
Their brochure easily explains courses
specific to various ages, activity and skill
levels. There are monthly payment plans and
discounts available when several siblings
attend the school, and students can choose to
attend two classes per week as part of an
accelerated learning program.
Karate, Cheer, and Art are also offered at
the school, which has 12 instructors and
about 12,000 square feet of space. There is a
viewing balcony which offers parents and
spectators an exciting and complete view
of the entire gymnastics training area.
When entering the gym area one is taken
with the colorful and clean surroundings
amid the great selection of pre-school to
competitive level equipment. This welcom-
ing environment allows us to host invitation-
al competitions as well as special class per-
formances during the school year. In addi-
tion to offering a thrilling event to view, we
hope to provide an inspiration of dreams for
young athletes to pursue, the website reads.
Moormann said there are perhaps 90
clubs in New Jersey, but only about a dozen
have lasted as long as CS Gymnastics. This
is certainly an excellent track record and
everyone involved at CS Gymnastics should
be very proud of this.
Currently Moormann said she has the
goal of pushing to improve and upgrade to
make our customer service top notch.
Moormann and her husband are continu-
ally looking for areas to serve the families of
their community. CS Gymnastics is known
to offer courses that work with individuals
of all age levels and abilities, and they even
have two instructors that work with special
needs children. These courses have resulted
in positive therapy and a great learning envi-
ronment for kids.
Moormann said she has a passion to see
all students succeed and grow as individuals,
and enjoys seeing when a childs face lights
up after learning something brand new
perhaps a certain gymnastics skill or making
it to the top of the climbing rope.
On Sunday, Sept. 28, from 2 to 5 pm,
there is an open house to celebrate their 30th
anniversary, and many activities being
offered. There will be activities to try from
all their programs including an inflatable
slide, obstacle course, balloons, prizes, and,
of course cake. Phone number for CS
Gymnastics is 973-347-2771.

A
pple will be the word of the day
on September 27th. A variety of
mouthwatering apple items, plus
entertainment, family fun, auctions, sales
and much more will fill the grounds of the
Flanders United Presbyterian Church ( 58
Drakesdale Road in Flanders) as it holds
its 12th annual Apple Festival from 10am
4pm (rain date October 4th). The event also
includes a blood drive which hopes to meet
a special goal. Church members Kathy
Hinds Banfe and Karen Brand are co-chairs
of the festival.
We will be serving such things as apple
pies and breads and apple cider donuts.
There will also be an apple press for fresh-
pressed apple cider. We are also putting
together a cookbook of the items for sale,
said Rev. Rick Oppelt, pastor of the church.
Banfe shared that activities sure to bring
big smiles to kids will be a hayride, games
including a bouncy house, and arts and
crafts.
For those looking for things to buy, the
event offers a variety of things. RH Farms
will host a Farmer's Market; and for those
looking for a special little something at a
bargain price, theres.a $2 Buck Table. The
event also includes a silent auction of small
items and a live auction of larger ones.
Music, and even dancing, will grace the
area. The band, "The Middle Ages" will
play classic rock and new wave from the
70's and 80's. Dancers from the DeNogla
School of Irish Dance will also be on hand
to entertain.
Oppelt explained that the funds raised by
the event support church special projects
like youth activities, mission endeavors,
music programs and emergency situations.
The event also supplies a day of fellowship.
Our annual Apple Festival provides our
church an opportunity to come together to
provide a fun, safe and delicious day of
activities for the neighborhoods we serve. It
enables us to continue to be a lively
Presbyterian presence in our community, as
we have been for more than 50 years.
explained Oppelt.
Also, that day, the Red Cross will be
there for the 2nd annual Fred Swinson
Memorial Blood Drive. Oppelt explained
that Swinson was a long time active mem-
ber of the church who died in 2013. For
many years, Swinson spear-headed the
blood drive held at the Apple Festival.
Last year, it made sense to christen it
the Fred Swinson Memorial Blood Drive.
Last year, we had 32 donations, more than
Flanders Church Holds 12th Annual Apple Festival - Sept. 27th
we've ever had before and this year we are
shooting for a goal of over 50. One of our
high school seniors is helping to organize it
in an effort to earn a college scholarship
from the Red Cross, shared Oppelt.
September 27th is the date and the word
is apple. The Flanders United
Presbyterian Church apple festival is an
event not to be missed!

F
ootball season can only mean one thing time to grab
the best seat in the house, and were not talking about
at the stadium. In fact, 77 percent of Americans think
the best seat in the house is at home in front of an HDTV,
according to a recent survey by McIlhenny Company,
maker of Tabasco brand products. Instead of heading to the
stadium, keep the tailgate at home and throw a homegat-
ing party.
The ultimate homegate is not only about the football game,
its about the food. No matter whats happening on the field,
the spread can be the real game-changer. In fact, the survey
found the following:
78 percent of American adults think good food can
make up for a bad game.
Americans spend, on average, 42 percent of the game
eating or drinking.
Over half of Americans (57 percent) voted the grill as
the most important appliance when hosting a homegate.
For a homegate touchdown, banish the boring and serve
beer-infused chili, which is sure to please all your family,
friends and football fans. For other ways to spice up game

W
hats not to love about slow
cooking? You combine a few
ingredients and let them simmer
all day in your slow cooker and then
comes the best part coming home to a
house filled with the most delicious aroma
that hints at the meal thats yet to come.
Slow cooking is perfect for busy fall
schedules its an easy way to makes sure
you and your family can still enjoy a home-
cooked meal together no matter how hectic
your day becomes. Pork is ideal for this
cooking method because there are so many
different ingredients you can pair with it to
easily create crave-worthy meals influenced
by both familiar flavors and tastes from
around the world.
With Italian Stuffed Pork Meatball
Sandwiches, lean ground pork combines
with Italian-inspired ingredients like tomato
sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes to form
meatballs that are then stuffed with moz-
zarella. After slow cooking for six to eight
hours, the meatballs are packed with savory
flavor and youll love the warm, melted
cheese when you bite into them.
Serve these meatballs topped with the
tomato sauce as a sandwich using a sub-
style bun with a side of garlic fries and veg-
etables. If you have leftovers, you can add
them to spaghetti for an equally tasty
Italian-themed dinner with garlic bread and
a side salad.

T
homas Edison had an unconventional education. He
did not start school until he was eight years old. Port
Heron Michigan did not have a public school so he
attended the private Reverend G. B. Engle School that was
closest to his home. This school had rigid classroom disci-
pline and Edison had a free inquisitive spirt that could not
be tamed. The school claimed Edison was a slow and rest-
less pupil and he needed strict reprimanding. His mother
Nancy Edison strongly disagreed with the schools evalua-
tion of her child. Fortunately, Nancy Edisons past profes-
sion was being a Canadian school teacher and her solution
was to home school her own son. The academic course
work Nancy Edison helped to motivate her son came from
reading R.G. Parker's School of Natural Philosophy and in
the later years from The Cooper Union (http://www.coop-
er.edu/). Historians estimate that Edison had less than a
year of classroom schooling in his lifetime. Yet, he had
great academic skills and a real passion for reading books.
Many of the books he read were advanced literary works for
his age.
In Edisons boyhood era, child labor laws were nonexist-
ent or very lax. It was not unusual for children twelve years
of age to procure regular employment with minimal adult
supervision. The Fort Gratiot train depot was a just a short
stroll from the Edison family home. So, at the age of
twelve, Edison found his first job working for the railroad.
He became a candy butcher on the Grand Trunk Railroad
selling snacks and newspapers to passengers. He got to
experience traveling each day on the sixty-mile run from
Port Huron to Detroit. Preteenager Edison hitched a ride on
the best the late 19th Century offered in distance high speed
transportation while most adults were still traveling by
horse and carriage to their jobs. The long lay overs in this
city presented him with a real world of discovery. This
enabled a precocious young boy the time to explore the big
metropolis on his own terms. He was given several hours
each day to the city. He made use of this idle time by join-
ing the Detroit Young Men's Society. This gave him access
to the place of his dreams, a large library and reading room.
Edison recalled his childhood library visits stating "I didn't
read a few books, I read the library."
Edisons childhood jobs kept him in the epicenter of
technology. It was the rail system that also ushered in the
telegraph system. The telegraph area was news the network
center that provided the information for the newspaper pub-
lication industry. As the rail station newspaper boy, he was
in the epicenter of all national news during a momentous
time of Americas own Civil War. Young Edison was alert-
ed to milestone battlefront news hours or even days before
the rest of America. This new technology of the telegraph
piqued his interest. He got to witness the telegram transmis-
sions being relayed and he read all he could about telegraph
communications with dreams of being an operator of this
new technology. Edison wish came true by a twist of fate.
Edison got the telegraph operator position when he saved
three-year-old Jimmie MacKenzie from a runaway train
heading his way. Jimmie's father was the Mount Clemens,
Michigan station agent J.U. MacKenzie and his gratitude
for saving his sons life was to train Edison as the new tele-
graph operator. This was a job that started the innovative
and technical journey that would become the hallmark of
his ingenious life.
Thomas Edison had an extraordinary blended education
of dual experimental and academic learning. But his deep-
est gratitude was to his professional academic teacher with
these sentiments "My mother was the making of me. She
was so true, so sure of me; and I felt I had something to live
for, someone I must not disappoint." And Thomas Edisons
childhood Fort Gratiot Depot was turned into The Thomas
Edison Depot Museum that offers educational programs in
electricity, energy, communications and magnetism to Port
Hurons local children.
