F
landers resident Millene Michel
knows what it's like to battle
against breast cancer, from the time
of diagnosis through the various treatment
options and recovery. For Millene, Studio
Director of Theater Dance Center, her
inspirational blog called "The Trials of a
Woman with Breast Cancer," has helped
her become a 2014 Industry Dance
Award's "Circle of Hope" recipient.
The "Circle of Hope" charity campaign
fund provides dancers who are currently
battling or who have survived breast can-
cer a chance to share their courageous
journey and inspire others to keep the hope
alive. Millene was one of eight total recip-
ients to receive this year's "Circle of Hope"
award. The award is specifically dedicated
to cancer survivors within the dance com-
munity who are working to create aware-
ness, save lives, raise money, and fight
cancer in any way possible.
For Millene, the life-altering news
came in the late summer of 2014, when it
was revealed that she had breast cancer. As
a long-time mentor to young teenagers and
a teacher to many, she began to reach out
to encourage other women to help them
understand the importance of prevention
and to be proactive in the fight against
breast cancer.
After starting dancing at the age of
Flanders Resident Receives Circle of Hope Award After
Blogging about Battle with Breast Cancer
three and being a professional dancer for
10 years, Millene opened the Theater
Dance Center in 1991 along with business
partner Mary Ellen Volz. Part of their busi-
ness includes running a competition team,
which began a benefit performance to take
a stand against cancer in 2010. Just one
month after the benefit was started,
Millene received her breast cancer diagno-
sis, followed by a double mastectomy in
2010 and chemotherapy treatment in early
2011.
From the time of her diagnosis through
the treatment and recovery phases, Millene
received lots of support from fellow
dancers, including her own students.
Ultimately, the dance team raised thou-
sands of dollars to help Millene with
health-related expenses.
Her dedication to stressing the impor-
tance of being proactive in terms of health
and starting a blog related to her experi-
ences battling cancer led Millene to earn
the award. She explained, "Being a breast
cancer survivor, I wanted to help other
women diagnosed with breast cancer,
whether it was through counseling, being a
shoulder to cry on, giving advice about my
experiences and sharing what it's like to go
through the process." Millene notes that
her constant work with teen girls was espe-
cially useful in reaching out to a younger
audience. "By having this experience, I am
able to turn it into a positive situation by
trying to influence other young women to
be proactive and maybe even avoid having
to undergo a mastectomy or chemotherapy
following a breast cancer diagnosis."
Although she could not attend the
awards ceremony held on September 10 in
Los Angeles, Millene was humbled to
share the honor with other standout cancer
survivors. Making the ceremony even
more noteworthy was the appearance of
Hollywood celebrities such as Paula
Abdul, Shane Harper and Olivia Holt.

ackettstown's Daniel "Chip"
Sherwood realized every golfer's
dream on August 31 when he
scored a hole in one at Apple Mountain
Golf Club in White Township.
The 45 year old has been playing golf
for 26 years but an ace has always eluded
him. Until he teed off from the 140 yard
18th hole. Using a Ping 9 Iron, Sherwood
sent his ball flying toward the cup.
"I saw it tracking towards the hole and
my friend Jason said that it looks like a
hole in one," said Sherwood, who was
playing with Jason Smith and his father
Dan. "It hit in front of the hole and disap-
peared. We all just screamed and I hugged
my dad. And then the foursome behind us
came up and heard the yelling and they all
shook my hand. It was awesome."
Ironically, Sherwood had a rough front
nine, he admitted, but ended up with a
career-best 36 on the back nine, capped by
that magical moment every golfer aims
for.

rgan and tissue donation affords men
and women a unique opportunity to
help others. Although the laws vary
depending on where a person lives, many per-
sons age 18 or older can indicate their desire
to be organ donors. Younger people must
have a parent or guardian's consent. Physical
condition will dictate if a person can donate,
although people with a previous medical con-
dition may still be suitable donors. According
to the United States Department of Health
and Human Services, each organ and tissue
donor has the potential to save or improve the
lives of as many as 50 people. Organs and tis-
sues eligible for donation include the heart,
pancreas, lungs, liver, kidneys, intestines,
cornea, skin, connective tissues, and bone
marrow, among others. In the United States,
donors can register with a state donor registry
or designate their decisions on their driver's
licenses. Canadians can visit beadonor.ca to
register to become organ donors.

here is a good reason that
Manhattan colorist Rosario
DeMeo's customers have followed
him throughout the years. From
Manhattan, Bergen County, South Jersey,
they come because DeMeo is not just a hair
stylist: they consider him an artist.
And now, he is bringing his acclaimed
work to a new location, Rosario Boutique,
in Chester, NJ. DeMeo has helped create
custom color formulations for television
and magazine advertisements for top
celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker,
Beyonce Knowles and Andie MacDowell,
as well as highly renowned models.
To celebrate his new beginning in
Chester, DeMeo will be hosting a Grand
Opening and Open House at his shop on
Sun., Oct. 26, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The
ribbon cutting will take place at 2:30 p.m.,
with light refreshments and entertainment
throughout the day. The shop is located at
Manhattan Colorist Rosario DeMeo, Hair is a Work of Art
54 Main Street, Suite 2, in the Village
Square. Anyone is welcome to attend the
event and see what all the talk is about
when it comes to DeMeo and his career
with hair.
"I truly care what goes out the door of
my shop," said DeMeo. "I 'read' hair like a
doctor would check your health. I'm not
about getting it done and goodbye. I am
not greedy. I want to make sure my clients
are happy with the work. I'm like an artist
and hair is my canvas."
DeMeo, who was one of the key players
in the development of hair color for Matrix
and LOreal Paris, first meets with a client
for a free consultation where he and the
client agree on what needs to be done
going forward.
"I'd rather have a client happy in the
long run than in the short run," he said.
"We can achieve anything that a woman
wants, but I do want to make sure it's not a
quick fix."
DeMeo's formulas are still used in some
of the best salons in the world. In fact,
LOreal considers him a member of the
Top 10 percent of colorists in the United
States.
He brings with him a level of expertise
and attention to detail that is nearly
unmatched. I develop a unique color for-
mula for each and every client I work on,
taking into consideration everything from
eye color, to skin tone, to the shape of the
face for the cut, DeMeo explained, noting
that he has eight different categories of
hair coloring using an array of different
lines.
This attention to every aspect of the
hairs look and health has made him one of
the most sought after master colorists in
the industry. Hes been featured at elite
modeling events, in Elle magazine, and
represented LOreal Paris at the famous
Vanity Fair suite at the Golden Globe
Awards.
DeMeo is not just a master colorist; hes
also a classic hair cutter, preferring the
timeless styles that he perfected in New
York salons. "Its not just about the color,
its about the integrity of the hair," said
DeMeo.
He is proud of his roots, having started
his career at the famous Beth Minardi
Salon in Manhattan. "Beautiful hair color
is achieved through consistency," says
DeMeo. I love working with hair, and cre-
ating the perfect look for someone."

or some, the thoughts
of ghosts and paranor-
mal activity only occur
around Halloween.
However, for the New Jersey
Ghost Hunters Society
(NJGHS) , studying the para-
normal is something done
year around.. The North
Jersey Division of the
NJGHS meets monthly at the
Hackettstown Community
Center. The founder/direc-
tor of the NJGHS is LAura
Hladik Hoffman of
Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania,
who is the author of
Ghosthunting New Jersey
and Ghosthunting New York
City (both at Barnes and
Noble). The team leader of
the North Jersey division of
the society is Dina Chirico of
Belvidere.
Since I was a child I had
experienced things that
seemed out of the norm,
which I only found out later.
I thought everyone experi-
enced this stuff. As I had got-
ten older, my thirst for
answers became more, and
so I met L'Aura in 1998 and
began attending NJGHS
meetings and it just grew
from there. I am always
learning and studying, said
Chirico in explaining what
drew her into paranormal
investigation.
The NJGHS researches
and documents paranormal
activity in hopes to have a
better understanding of the
other side and to have
proof to back up that under-
standing. Hoffman
explained that the group is
happy to have opportunities
to go into peoples home to
investigate other worldly
activity and there is no
charge for their investiga-
tions.
Chirico noted that she has
been on hundreds of such
investigations:
everything from pri-
vate residences,[to] public
establishments/ businesses,
public events, private events,
personal investigations and
more. One case that immedi-
ately comes to mind was an
apartment above an antique
store in Morris County.
There were both positive and
negative occurrences,
according to the residents.
There were shadow people,
full body apparitions, items
being moved, name calling,
doors closing, residual activ-
ity and much more. Not to
mention a full length mirror
that served as an active por-
tal. I had a few personal
experiences which could not
be explained by organic
Known as the "ghost chick",
L'aura Hladik Hoffman is the
founder of the New Jersey
Ghost Hunters Society.
Hackettstowns Ghost Hunters
means and we returned to
this place several times.
As for memorable local
investigations, those include
a 2006 Ghost Conference
was held in Hackettstown.
That night both Chirico and
Hoffman investigated the
restaurant, Charlie Browns (
now Bea McNally's). There
were various versions of the
story of a drowning in a bath-
tub when the structure was a
hotel. Although there was no
significant activity recorded
the night they were there,
Hoffman noted that she was
told that the exact location of
the bathtub was not usually
readily disclosed, for fear of
spooking the busboys who
lived there.
Chirico also shared, Ive
investigated a few private
residences and a dorm room
in one of the newer halls at
Centenary College. In refer-
ence to the dorm room, the
student had been experienc-
ing some significant activity,
such as physical manifesta-
tions (i.e. getting hit/
punched), temperature
changes and movement.
For these paranormal
investigators, ghost hunt-
ing is not a once a year
experience. However, what
does a ghost hunters society
do for Halloween?
"The NJGHS already
kicked off the haunted
Halloween season with a
group tour of Eastern State
Penitentiary's 'Terror Behind
the Walls' haunted house on
September 20 in
Philadelphiaseveral pre-
sentations are scheduled for
the month of October
throughout New Jersey. In
fact, Ghosthunting New
Jersey and New York City
will be held at the Warren
County Library in Belvidere
on October 30 at 7:00 pm.
Details and presentation
schedule are on the web site
at www.njghs.net/presenta-
tions.html The monthly
meeting held in
Hackettstown on October 21
will host guest speaker
Jennifer Wood presenting the
Crystal Skull's energy mys-
teries and meditations,
shared Hoffman
While ghost hunting may
sound exciting, Hoffman
shared a few cautions to
those considering going out
on their own:
Please ghost hunt
responsibly. Never go alone
and always get permission
before investigating a ceme-
tery or grave yard. The
NJGHS has protocols in
place to safeguard its mem-
bers, the home/business
owners whose places we
investigate, and the evidence
collected.
And please learn to pro-
tect yourself in whatever
ways feel comfortable, such
as prayer, shielding, energy or
other ways. Provoking spirits
is never a good idea and nei-
ther is inviting them home
with you, since you really do
not know who, or what, will
accept your invitation.

A
s winter temperatures drop, the poten-
tial for higher utility bills goes up.
Taking steps ahead of the cold season
can help you trim costs and make your home
more energy efficient, keeping those utility
bills in check even as the winter weather
rages.
Many homeowners just assume the win-
ter season means their bills will go up as sys-
tems work harder to keep their home regulat-
ed, said Francois Lebrasseur, marketing
manager of water products for GE
Appliances. In reality, there are many steps
one can take to improve energy efficiency and
minimize the added expense that comes with
extreme winter temperatures.
According to the U.S. Energy Information
Administration, electricity costs are on the
rise. Before winter weather sets in for your
part of the country, take some time to assess
your home for potential problem areas and
improvements that can help lower your ener-
gy costs.
Lighting. Though turning off unneeded
lights is a smart strategy any time of year, its
especially helpful during the winter months
when utility expenses can add up. New tech-
nology from GE Lighting lets you manage
your lights away from home handy if youre
gone for the day and realize lights were left
on. GE Link Connected LED lights can be
adjusted using an app on your smartphone.
These energy-efficient LED lights also will
come in handy if youre away from home for
an extended period or traveling over the holi-
days, as you can turn specific lights on to give
the appearance that someone is home so you
can vacation worry-free. If you replace a 60-
watt incandescent light bulb with a 12-watt
GE Link LED bulb, you would save $132
over the life of the bulb at an electricity rate of
$0.11 per kWh.
Water heaters. Heat isnt the only system
that gets an extra workout come winter.
Cooler house temperatures may require water
heaters to work harder, so ensuring you have
a model well-suited to your familys year-
round needs is key. In fact, heating water is
the second source of energy use in the resi-
dential home after space heating and cooling,
with standard electric water heaters costing
the average homeowner $585 every year to
operate. One energy-efficient option is the 50-
gallon GE GeoSpring hybrid electric water
heater, which can save the average household
$365 every year (using 1514 kWh per year
and national average electricity rate of 12
cents per kWh) compared to a 50-gallon stan-
dard electric water heater (using 4646 kWh
per year), as based on a test comparison.
GeoSpring also offers features such as vaca-
tion mode, which lowers the water tempera-
ture during a trip, then reenergizes itself the
day before the homeowners return.
Keep Winter Energy Bills in Check
Thermostat. A programmable thermostat
is easy to install and saves energy (and
money) by automatically adjusting to pre-
determined temperature settings. This allows
you to drop the temperature during the day
when no one is home, but have a comfortable
environment ready when you arrive home
from work each day. Depending on the model
you choose, you can select numerous settings

Air leaks. An airtight house is critical to
managing your heat-related expenses. You
take time to close windows and doors to pre-
vent heat from escaping, but thats only half
the battle. Sealing cracks around those win-
dows and doors, and other leak-prone areas
such as the basement and attic, will help keep
heat inside and costs down.

R
ed DOT Firearms is happy to
announce its Two Year Anniversary!
This has been an exciting couple of
years for us and the firearms industry.
When we opened our doors a two years ago,
we did so with the intent to build a commu-
nity 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. and we look
forward to advancing this philosophy in the
coming year.
SAFETY FIRST! With the increase in
first-time firearms purchasers, we now offer
NRA Certified training courses to ensure
Red DOT Firearms of Stanhope Celebrates Two Year Anniversary
safe and responsible firearms ownership.
Along with the safety classes, we offer the
Utah Non-Resident conceal carry classes
through Gun For Hire out of Woodland
Park, NJ. As many people have experi-
enced, obtaining a conceal carry permit for
the Garden State is near impossible. With
the Utah Non-Resident permit, you are
allowed to fully exercise your Second
Amendment right to protect yourself and
your family when traveling in 31 other
states.
See our web site for class schedules:
www.red-dot-firearms.com
Firearms ownership in NJ is on the rise.
In 2011, New Jersey posted a record 60,256
National Instant Criminal Background
Checks (NICS). In 2012, a new record was
set at 85,851 and from January through
October of 2013, New Jersey recorded
100,922 NICS checks, far surpassing record
setting numbers of the past. This increase in
firearm purchases is not restricted to men
only. Twenty-five percent of our business
is catering to females, states owner Jim
Hawthorne, Women love to shoot!
For those of you who are new to the
industry and wish to obtain a pistol permit,
most of the forms can be downloaded from
Red DOTs web site. The forms will then
need to submit to your local Police
Department or NJ State Police barracks.
Wed like to say thank you to our cus-
tomers for making our first year so success-
ful. We have had the opportunity to meet a
lot of really great people who are our cus-
tomers and now our friends. Thank you, to
all of you for your support and thank you to

ewel Crawford Ajibade, Linda Carey
and Priscilla Dzurich Ribera are just
three of the estimated 173,000 women
in the United States who are living with
metastatic breast cancer. Managing an
incurable disease is challenging for them,
but each takes a unique approach to living
with the condition.
There is no right way to battle metasta-
tic breast cancerjust your way, says
Ajibade, who was diagnosed with metastat-
ic breast cancer (the most advanced stage)
in 2006 and lost her mother to the disease.
Since her diagnosis, Ajibade has become
an advocate for women living with metasta-
tic breast cancer through Living Beyond
Breast Cancer (LBBC) and a passionate
believer in the power of sharing ones
storya method that has helped her cope
with her own reality.
I have connected with stories from sev-
eral women throughout my journey, and I
want to share that sense of community with
others, says Ajibade. You never know
how many lives youll impact by speaking
up.
To help create awareness of metastatic
breast cancer, Ajibade is encouraging
women to participate in the nationwide
#MBCStrength photo-sharing cam-
paign. Women with metastatic breast
cancer can post their photos on
Twitter using the hashtag
#MBCStrength to illustrate the
word that unites each of them
in their journey: strength.
Photos posted on Twitter
with #MBCStrength will
be considered for a dis-
play inTimes Square on
October 13, 2014,
Metastatic Breast Cancer
Awareness Day.
People often wonder
what its like to live with
metastatic breast cancer. By
participating in this cam-
paign, we have the opportu-
nity to showcase not just our
challenges but also the love
and support that guide us through our jour-
neys, says Ajibade.
Ajibades personal account is also fea-
tured at www.MyMBCStory.com, an educa-
tional website tailored for women with
metastatic breast cancer developed by
AstraZeneca with input from breast
cancer advocacy organizations
LBBC and Metastatic Breast
Cancer Network. Her story is
featured alongside that of
Carey, who draws strength
from expression through art
and involvement in The Tutu
Project, and Dzurich Ribera,
whose personal source of
inspiration is her family.
Its important to not
hold in your feelings. You
have to find some avenue
to express them, says
Carey, who was diag-
nosed with metastatic
breast cancer in 2006.
Carey and her husband,
Bob, created The Tutu
Projecta collection of
photos in which he wears a pink tutuas a
form of self-therapy. The project has res-
onated with many people around the globe
and, 11 years later, the couple continues to
raise funds for women with breast cancer
and receive expressions of gratitude for the
laughter their photos bring.
Following her metastatic breast cancer
diagnosis, Dzurich Ribera feared that others
would define her by her condition. While
having her blood drawn one day, she shared
this concern with another woman in treat-
ment at the facility.
I was desperately looking for a role
modelsomeone who was doing well in
spite of living with metastatic breast can-
cer, says Dzurich Ribera. I shared that
feeling with her and she replied, You have
to be your own positive story. I know she
was right and, through the ups and downs,
that has always stuck with me.
Ajibade, Carey and Dzurich Ribera are
connected in their determination to help
redefine what it means to live with metasta-
tic breast cancer. Having helped many
women through her advocacy work,
Ajibade advises, Each person living with
metastatic breast cancer will find her own
methods of coping, but one of the first steps
we can take in this journey is to open up and
share our stories.

hether youre a soldier, Army
veteran or proud Army supporter,
you can now be part of the future
home to Army history. You can inscribe a
personal message on a brick that will be
permanently laid in the outdoor pathways
and plazas of the future National Museum
of the United States Army.
The National Army Museum will be sit-
uated in Fort Belvoir, Va., nearWashington,
D.C., and it will feature a memorial garden,
amphitheater and parade ground. The
185,000-square-foot facility is expected to
attract more than 750,000 visitors every
year.
CBSs Criminal Minds star Joe
Mantegna, national spokesperson for the
National Museum of the United States
Army campaign, was one of the first to
order a commemorative brick. Mantegnas
brick inscription honored his uncle, William
Novelli, a Purple Heart recipient who
served in Pattons 3rd Army during World
War II. Another World War II veteran, Mort
Walker, will also have his name inscribed
on one of the bricks, along with that of the
famous comic strip soldier he first drew
more than 65 years ago, Beetle Bailey.
In addition to these names, there will be
thousands more, with messages commemo-
rating soldiers, Army families, Department
of the Army civilians, Army supporters,
Army units, and relatives and loved ones.
The Mesabi black granite bricks are avail-
able in two sizes: four inches by eight inch-
es and eight inches by eight inches. You can
also order gift certificates and replicas.
The Secretary of the Army designated
The Army Historical Foundation to lead the
campaign to build the museum. More infor-
mation about the commemorative bricks
and museum is available on the founda-
tions website. Learn more at www.army-
history.org/bricks.

orris County EduCare in
Succasunna is sponsoring a Fall
Festival complete with a huge
garage sale and the largest Halloween
Parade ever in Roxbury all to benefit The
Dylan Flinchum Rock On Foundation.
The Dylan Flinchum Rock On
Foundation was established to help pro-
vide love and support to Mike and Melissa
(Larsen) Flinchum and their beautiful
three year old son, Dylan.
Shortly after Dylans second birthday,
he began to experience difficulty walking.
After being referred to several medical
specialists (including some of the top neu-
rosurgeons in the country at Cornell
Medical Center in NYC) it was deter-
mined that Dylan had a condition known
as Chiari malformation. Dylan underwent
surgery in the spring and was expected to
make a full recovery.
After several weeks of physical thera-
py, Dylan was not progressing as expected
and began to show symptoms that were
unrelated to the malformation. A follow up
MRI was completed and doctors were
shocked to significant change in Dylan's
white brain matter. After getting the initial
diagnosis from Cornell, Mike and Melissa
traveled to the Childrens Hospital of
Philadelphia (CHOP) where it was con-
firmed that Dylan is suffering from a
degenerative disease known as metachro-
matic leukodystrophy, often referred to as
MLD.
The Dylan Flinchum Rock On
Foundation has been created as we all
want to help ease just some of the burden
Mike and Melissa are facing so that they
can devote all their time and effort on
Dylan. This October, Morris County
EduCare in Succasunna will be hosting the
Fall Festival, Garage Sale and Halloween Parade
garage sale and Halloween Parade with all
proceeds going to the foundation.
To prepare for the event, EduCare has
started collecting donations for the sale.
They can not accept mattresses, couches,
recliners, car seats, drop down side cribs
and any broken items that can not be
resold. All donations can be brought to
Morris County EduCare at 77 Sunset Strip
in Succasunna. Final drop off will
beFriday, October 24th. EduCare is also
looking for volunteers to assist with set
up, sales and clean up though the day.
The garage sale is from 10:00 am to
3:00 pm. The Halloween Parade will
begin at Morris County EduCare at 11:30
am. Please join us.

tudents from Northwest Christian
School recently enjoyed a day at the
Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural
Resource Education Center in
Hackettstown, where they were exposed
to many educational experiences. The cen-
ter, which began production in 1981, edu-
cates visitors on the more than 600,000
trout, of various species, raised each year
at the facility. The third grade students
viewed a 15-minute video demonstrating
how the hatcherys trout rearing process
works. The students also took part in a
self-guided tour which allowed them to
see where the trout are raised before being
released into New Jersey streams. After a
lesson on casting, the students were then
permitted to fish on the grounds of the
hatchery. The Pequest Trout Hatchery and
Natural Resource Education Center
Pequest is located on Rt. 46 nine miles
west of Hackettstown and is open Monday
through Friday (excluding holidays)
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m

magine being able to learn World
History by actually visiting the places
you previously only read about, by
actually seeing the historic landmarks you
studied, and being able to photograph some
of the worlds famous sights and artwork
with your own camera . . . .for Byram
Intermediate School eighth grader, Kaitlyn
Andolena, this summer was a world history
lesson up close and personal.
Kaitlyn is an accepted delegate and
accomplished alumni of the People to
People Student Ambassador Program.
Created by Dwight D. Eisenhower over 50
years ago, the premise of the P2P program
is world peace gained through global
awareness. In short, as tomorrows leaders,
if the youth of the world could become
aware and educated about each others cul-
tures, customs and ways, history and gov-
ernment, religion, artwork and cuisine and
daily life, maybe, just maybe, we could
achieve world peace. The goal is to have
our students become global citizens
knowledgeable about each others lifestyles
the world over. And what better way for
students to gain that knowledge but by
studying it, learning about it and then expe-
riencing it firsthand, to live it, breathe it
and really understand it by living it.
As one of 18 other local delegates repre-
senting Morris, Sussex and Warren coun-
ties, Kaitlyn and her fellow delegates trav-
eled to Europe this summer to visit Italy,
France and England. Touching down in
Rome, the delegates hit the ground running
and made their way north by bus, train,
gondola and ferry. Taking in over 14 cities
in Italy before heading to Paris, Caen and
the shores of Normandy before they fin-
ished up in Portsmouth and London, their
itinerary was jam packed with adventures
and sites to behold.
Aside from taking in some of the most
famous tourist attractions native to each
country (the Colosseum, the Roman Forum
and the Vatican in Italy, the Eiffel tower,
the Chateau De Versailles and an incredible
ceremony commemorating the Battle of
Normandy in France as well as the London
Eye, The Crown Jewels and the Changing
of the Guard at Buckingham Palace in
Great Britain), the trip also included stops
at museums housing some of the worlds
most renown pieces of art (such as the stat-
ue of David in Florences Accademia
Gallery and the Mona Lisa in the Louvre in
Paris).
But the People to People (P2P) experi-
ence is so much more than just visiting
Student Gets Hands-On World History Lesson
tourist spots. Keeping in
step with Eisenhowers
plans, hopes and dreams,
Kaitlyn and her fellow dele-
gates also performed com-
munity service at a park in
Assisi, had the opportunity
to speak with a Friar as well
as a session with a member
of British parliament; visits
to landmarks included fact-
filled guided tours to give
the students a very detailed
and complete background
of the places they were vis-
iting and relevant historical
facts about the events that
shaped history. Highlights
of their amazing European
adventure also included a
two day home stay with an
Italian family, a day spent
working on an Italian farm,
participating in a wreath
ceremony commemorating
the Battle of Normandy and

Frances liberation, and taking in the play
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in down-
town London.
One of Kaitlyns personal favorite expe-
riences was the Full On Experience.
The idea behind the Full On Experience is
to live your life to the fullest, to give 110%
and to challenge yourself each and every
day said Kaitlyn, we were challenged to
rappel 100 feet down off the top of a
fortress tower it was unbelievable! What
a thrill! And the view from the top of the
tower was spectacular!
With travel came the opportunity to
sample European cuisine. From making
their own pizzas and pasta, to sampling
escargot, authentic French croissants and
more gelato than you can imagine, dele-
gates enjoyed country favorites between
activities. The P2P itinerary while impres-
sive in the fun and exciting categories is
also rich in education and culture.
Delegates observed glass blowing in
Murano, visited a fashion institute in Milan
and the Hampton Court Palace in London
home of King Henry VIII.
There were two things that Kaitlyn
found of particular interest while Exploring
Europe: one was the intricate and elaborate
detail in European architecture so many of
the buildings were just so beautiful, I real-
ly loved looking how they were designed
and built and photographing them from dif-
ferent angles, they were incredible ; the
other was the Mona Lisa. I had this vision
in my head that the Mona Lisa was this gi-
normous painting, said Kaitlyn, I was
totally shocked and surprised to see that it
is really this very small painting roped off
on this huge wall it was not at all what I
pictured.
But there is a lot more to People to
People than just traveling the world in the
summer; delegates spend the year before
they leave preparing for their trip, studying
about the countries they will visit. I think
most people are surprised to hear how
much work we put in before and after we
travel says Andolena. There are monthly
meeting so delegates can get to know one
another and team build, a lot of studying,
on line testing, projects, researching vari-
ous aspects of the countries youll soon
visit, community service, and of course
learning how to be a savvy traveler. This
years requirements also included a lecture
at Fairleigh Dickinson University and two
post trip projects.
Grateful and humble, Kaitlyn was shy
Hands-On World History Lesson
about opening up about why this trip had
such special meaning to her . . ..she earned
more than two-thirds of the tuition monies
on her own. Working so hard to be able to
even go on this trip made me really, really
appreciate it. I took over 2000 pictures and
had life changing adventures and experi-
ences that have made a huge impact on me
and I know I am very lucky to have these
opportunities, especially at such a young
age. There really arent words to describe
how amazing the trip was or the incredible
influence it has already had on me.
So whats on the horizon for Kaitlyn?
Well next years trip is a Journey through
the South Pacific, visiting Fiji, New
Zealand and Australia that would be
huge! Is she up for another challenge?
Absolutely, Im already working on
it!!!!!
People to People also lends its expertise
in student development to numerous lead-
ership forums and international student

T
he symptoms women feel when suf-
fering a heart attack are often differ-
ent than those exhibited by men.
According to Jeanette Yuen, M.D., a cardi-
ologist at New York's White Plains
Hospital, women's heart attack symptoms
can be so mild that women may mistakenly
believe they are suffering from a more
innocuous medical issue, such as acid
reflux or even the flu. But symptoms such
as nausea, cold sweats and radiating pain in
the stomach are recognized by the
American Heart Association as possible
indicators of a heart attack in women, and
these signs should not be written off as
signs of a cold or stomach ailment, as
women are at risk of heart disease and heart
attack despite the misconception that such
ailments are exclusive to men. Women at
risk for heart disease and heart attack
include those with a family history of heart
disease; female smokers; female diabetics;
women with high cholesterol and/or high
blood pressure; and women who are post-
menopausal, physically inactive orover-
weight. Women, particularly those over 50,
who begin to feel physical discomfort in
their chest or any of the aforementioned
symptoms should consult their physicians
immediately.

n September 2nd, 2014 a new
grooming shop has opened in
Succasuna. Booming Grooming has
taken over a unit within the Eyland Avenue
strip mall located at 38 Route 10 West in
Roxbury. The grand opening was celebrated
with a ribbon cutting done by it's owner
Cynthia McPeek along with her husband
Craig, her son William, and her daughter
Melanie. Also joining in the festivities was
Mayor Jim Rille, Deputy Mayor Gary
Behrens, shop employee Nikki Lerner, and
shop mascot Jersey Girl.
Booming Grooming may be new to the
neighborhood, but they are no strangers to
hygenic pet care. Established in Rockaway,
Booming Grooming has been delivering
cute and sanitary haircuts for both dogs and
cats since 2000. Their love for animals and
attention to the details of their customers
needs has made this salon a great success.
Owner Cynthia McPeek graduated from
North Jersey School of Dog Grooming in
1997. She worked in several prestigious
grooming shops, including Morris Animal

rgan and tissue donation affords men
and women a unique opportunity to
help others. Although the laws vary
depending on where a person lives, many per-
sons age 18 or older can indicate their desire
to be organ donors. Younger people must
have a parent or guardian's consent. Physical
condition will dictate if a person can donate,
although people with a previous medical con-
dition may still be suitable donors. According
to the United States Department of Health
and Human Services, each organ and tissue
donor has the potential to save or improve the
lives of as many as 50 people. Organs and tis-
sues eligible for donation include the heart,
pancreas, lungs, liver, kidneys, intestines,
cornea, skin, connective tissues, and bone
marrow, among others. In the United States,
donors can register with a state donor registry
or designate their decisions on their driver's
licenses. Canadians can visit beadonor.ca to
register to become organ donors.

G
ame night, girls night or family
reunion your home serves as the
backdrop for many occasions.
Preparing your space for friends and family
can feel like a heavy undertaking, but with
a few simple entertaining tips, hosts can
wave goodbye to anxieties.
Pre-Guest Prep. Greet your guests with
a warm welcome by preparing appetizers
and drinks beforehand. Plan for ten bite-
sized portions per guest like bacon-
wrapped dates or stuffed mushrooms that
are visually enticing, but not intimidating.
More importantly, rehearse the recipe
beforehand. No host should spend the party
in the kitchen experimenting on a first-time
dish.
Space Is Key. Be mindful of how your
home coincides with the theme of your
party. Game day? Have plenty of seats in
front of the screen and a sideline lounge
for those who prefer to socialize. Girls
night? Dont stress about chairs. Encourage
guests to congregate in various areas like
a choose your own fruit sangria bar.
Overflow Free. The bath is one of the
highest-traffic areas during game day or the
holidays and most peoples top bathroom
concern is the fear of toilet overflow, espe-
cially in someone elses home. Consider a
Delta toilet with FlushIQ technology, which
offers overflow prevention and leak detec-
tion, and boasts a touch-free sensor, elimi-
nating the need to touch a dirty handle.
Less Is More. Save money and lighten
your to-do list by simplifying tasks. For
example, when hosting a dinner, choose a
simple candle display instead of extrava-
gant flowers. When preparing for the holi-
days, fill a glass bowl with holiday orna-
ments or venture outside for pinecones,
which can serve as a fresh and festive cen-
terpiece.
Clean As You Go. Clear your dishwash-
er before the party and rinse dinnerware
throughout the evening to avoid a messy
kitchen. A Delta faucet with Touch2O
Technology makes it easy to start and stop
the flow of water with a simple tap any-
where on the handle or spout a perfect
accessory for quick and easy cleaning.
Whether youre ramping up for game
day or holiday cocktails with the in-laws,
the entertaining season can be made much
easier with a few simple adjustments. For
additional home upgrades and kitchen and
bath technologies, visit

H
alloween is as much about candy as it is about dress-
ing up in fun costumes and engaging in scare tactics.
Humans have loved their sweets for centuries. Early
human beings made candy out of honey by drying it and
forming a taffy-like confection, while many modern incarna-
tions of candy involve dissolving sugar into water or milk to
form a syrup. Candy is then made by varying the temperature
of the syrup and the sugar concentration to achieve desired
textures. The word "candy" is derived from the Arabic "quan-
di," meaning "made of sugar."
Candy also often refers to chocolate bars and other treats
that people find so delectable. Ancient Mayans and Aztecs
were the first to experiment with the cocoa bean, the corner-
stone of chocolate confections, in the 1500s. However, their
chocolate drinks were bitter and not the sweet delights we've
come to associate with chocolate. It wasn't until the 19th cen-
tury that innovators began mixing cocoa with sugar to create
chocolate bars. Joseph Fry is credited with making the first
chocolate bar in 1847, using bittersweet chocolate. Milk
chocolate came later, in 1875, when it was introduced by
Henry Nestl and Daniel Peter. Milton Hershey began pro-
ducing sweet chocolate in 1894.
Hershey bars, Nestl bars and many other original candies
are still in production today. Tootsie Rolls and Charleston
Chews are other classic candies still produced. Good &
Plenty debuted in 1893, making it the oldest branded candy
in America. NECCO company Wafers were officially brand-
ed in 1901 and are another classic treat consumers can still
find in the candy aisle of their nearest grocery store.
Smarties is another candy that's bound to show up in trick-
or-treat bags this Halloween. Smarties have been owned and
operated by the same family since 1949. The Ce De Candy
Inc. factory opened up in August 1949 in Bloomfield, NJ, and
produced a candy that would not melt in the heat. Smarties
are a favorite all over North America and elsewhere. When
demand is too high for the NJ factory, particularly around
Halloween, Smarties are also produced in a Canadian facto-
ry in Newmarket, Ontario. Smarties imported to the United
States are still called Smarties. However, Smarties sold in
Canada are known as "Rockets," as another candy sold in
Canada already bears the Smarties name.
Halloween wouldn't be nearly as sweet without troves of
candy treasures. Children are urged to have their candy sort-
ed and inspected by parents prior to eating to avoid any dan-
gers, such as food allergies or tampering.
Sweet, Sweet Candy History
T
he tradition of jack-o'-lanterns began in Ireland and
Scotland, and pumpkins were not the first gourd of
choice to use as lanterns. Turnips and rutabagas were
often used because of their availability. When Irish immi-
grants migrated to America, they brought their jack-o'-lantern
traditions with them. Turnips were not as prevalent on this
side of the Atlantic, so carvers turned to pumpkins, which
were larger and easier to carve. Jack-o'-lanterns get their
name from Irish folklore, particularly a character named
Jack. Jack liked to drink and couldn't pay his pub tab, mak-
ing a deal with the Devil for his soul to cover the pub fee.
Jack agreed, but he tricked the Devil to get away with his soul
and captured the Devil. Jack agrees to free the Devil if he
makes a new deal that the Devil can't ever have his soul.
Years pass and Jack eventually dies. Because of his poor
lifestyle, he is not material for heaven, and Jack is once again
reunited with the Devil. Because the Devilremembers he can-
not have Jack's soul, Jack is forced to roam the twilight world
forever as a lost soul. The Devil gives Jack a few embers to
burn to light the way, which Jack stores in a hollowed-out
turnip. Eventually these lanterns, used to keep scary spirits at
bay, were called jack-o'-lanterns.
The legend of Jack-o'-lanterns

W
e are seeing a renaissance of new electric car
thinking that is draws upon the past modern age
of innovative legends who were the discoverers
and champions of early 20th century zero CO2 emission
energy
When we think about todays global rally for zero carbon
emissions and sustainable energy, Thomas Edison is includ-
ed in the list of names. Thomas Edison held these same
views on clean energy over 100 years ago. Although
Edison had a close friendship with Henry Ford, Edison
believed in electric cars. He promoted the electric car as
cleaner, quieter and easier to drive than gas powered auto-
mobiles. The Edison Electric Company was the battery
supplier to S.R. Bailey & Company which only manufac-
tured electric automobiles. The company built these elec-
tric automobiles in their Amesbury, Massachusetts plant
from 1907 to 1915. Their showcase model was the Bailey
Electric Phaeton. It was touted as a cross country vehicle
which could drive 100 miles on a full charge under ideal
conditions.
The other legendary name that has been tied to todays
electric car models is Nikola Tesla. Tesla was a lead engi-
neer who felt he was treated unfairly by his employer
Thomas Edison. Tesla quit his employment with Edison
and got his revenge with employment at his rival company
Westinghouse They may have had a great public feud over
AC vs DC currents but, they both had an interest in the elec-
tric powered cars over the gas powered engines. Nikola
Tesla even designed his own AC motor in 1882. It is pur-
ported that, Nikola Teslas greatest marvel in car science
took place in 1930. Tesla replaced a Pierce Arrows ICE
engine with an Electric Motor. The power source he used to
power this car was a mysterious black box of radio tubes
housed in the glove compartment. Mounted to the box was
a protruding antenna. Tesla manually adjusted the tuners to
tune into the right frequency and acquired 240 volts that
were delivered through the air from the Wardencliffe power
plant tower near Niagara Falls NY into his car. Nikola Tesla
used his own personal funds to create this free energy pro-
totype car. When Tesla wanted to put his invention into
production and needed an investor, J.P. Morgan did not like
the idea because, you could not put a meter on this kind of
energy. Morgan stopped funding Tesla's free energy car and
the Wardencliffe Tower was taken down and Tesla plans on
the clean free energy car also disappeared never to be found
again.
Even before Edisons and Teslas dream of clean energy
cars there was the fuel cell that was developed in the late
1830s by William Robert Grove who called it the gas bat-
tery. The fuel cell has the primary qualities of a car bat-
tery whose chemical fuel is constantly replenished. Todays
Proton-Exchange-Membrane (PME)-hydrogen- battery is
composed of a number of stacked cells. These cells can gen-
erate enough energy to power a car engine with hydrogen as
the catalyst (the most abundant resource). This technology
basically converts hydrogen into water and in the process
creates electricity. Toyota will have a Hydrogen Fuel
Celled car on the public roads in 2015.
One can only wonder if we have started using the clean
energy invented in the 19th Century by these legendary
inventors for cars of the 20th Century we would not be
thinking of cars with zero CO2 emissions in the 21st
Century because we would already be driving them.
Edisons electric cars are still working today and parked
at his home garage at Glenmont in West Orange. Visit the
Thomas Alva Edison Museum - NPS - Open Wednesday
through Sunday. Hours are 10:00am - 4:00pm. Admission
Fee is $7.00 - 211 Main Street West Orange, NJ 07052 Visit

COOKING CLASSES
November 17th!
C
omfort food is a staple in every
kitchen its the perfect way to
unwind with familiar flavors and
aromas. But those moments that call for a
soul-soothing dish are also great opportuni-
ties to spice up traditional favorites by intro-
ducing less common ingredients and prepa-
ration methods for an unexpectedly deli-
cious twist.
Stewing, for example, is one method you
might never have tried but, when you use
a tender meat thats full of comforting fla-
vor like pork, the result is well worth the
adventure. Making a stew usually involves
browning meat, adding liquid, simmering
for a few hours and then adding vegetables
easy, proven steps that let you explore dif-
ferent ingredient combinations to keep dish-
es fresh and inviting.
Need inspiration to get started? Try
Spanish Pork and Fennel Stew with Saffron
Rice. This hearty recipe uses a blade pork
roast, simple seasonings and vegetables. To
change it up, serve the stew with mashed
potatoes instead of rice for soaking up the
juices.

kitchen with pork by visiting

watering recipes, tips and more.

Mouthwatering Pork Stew
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into
1/2-inch pieces
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry sherry or apple juice
Chopped fresh cilantro
Saffron rice:
2 cups long-grain white rice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed saffron threads
For stew, heat 2 tablespoons oil in large
Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season
pork with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 tea-
spoon pepper. In batches, without crowding
(and adding more oil as needed) add pork
and cook, turning occasionally, until
browned on all sides, about 6 minutes per
batch. Transfer to plate.
Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to
Dutch oven and heat. Add fennel, onion,
bell pepper and garlic; cover. Cook, stirring
occasionally with wooden spoon, until veg-
etables soften, about 8 minutes. Add sherry;
bring to a boil. Return pork with any juices
to Dutch oven. Add enough cold water to
just cover pork and vegetables, about 6
cups; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer,
stirring occasionally, until pork is very ten-
der, about 1 1/2 hours.
Just before pork is tender, make saffron
rice. Bring rice, 4 cups water, salt and saf-
fron to a boil in medium saucepan over high
heat. Reduce heat to very low and cover.
Simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and let stand for 5-20
minutes. Fluff rice with fork.
Using slotted spoon, transfer pork and
vegetables to serving bowl and cover with
aluminum foil. Let cooking juices stand for
3 minutes, then skim off fat on surface. Boil
over high heat, uncovered, until cooking
liquid is reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
Season juices with salt and pepper. Pour
over pork and vegetables and sprinkle with
cilantro. Spoon saffron rice into bowls. Top
with stew, sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
