Adopt a Head Start Family for the Holidays

Chester Hosts Laser Light Holiday Show


ach year, generous Morris County corporate groups, churches and individuals celebrate the holidays in a very special way. They adopt one or several low-income Head Start families. Filled with the holiday spirit, they purchase gifts for the family from lists supplied by Head Start. Items on the list may include a child’s winter jacket, a doll, or household items such as towels or bedding. A Head Start family of four has an income of $22,050 or less. Affording life in Morris County on such an income is extremely difficult. In most instances, rent and food eat up almost all of the family’s income. Holidays are not joyous occasions when you can’t afford to buy your children the things they need, let alone those they want. Head Start is urgently seeking groups and individuals who will make our families’ holidays brighter by purchasing holiday gifts for them. To adopt a family, please

contact Adela Hernandez, Family & Community Partnerships Manager, at (973) 989-9052. The Head Start Community Program of Morris County, Inc. Head Start is a nonprofit organization that provides a free, comprehensive program for low-income Morris County preschoolers and their families. The program teaches the skills that lead 2-adopt a head start family for the holidays to successful school experiences for children and offers support services that lead to self-sufficiency for families. Head Start serves children and families who live anywhere in Morris County through sites in Dover and Morristown. The nonprofit agency is funded by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, United Way of Morris County, the State of NJ, foundation grants, local community organizations and individual donations.

here’s magic in the air and sparkle in every smile when Nutcracker comes to town! Over 70 talented dancers and actors from Hunterdon, Morris, Sussex and Warren Counties have earned roles in the New Jersey Civic Youth Ballet’s production of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. Ten-year-old Kayla Walsh of Mt. Olive will be performing the coveted role of Clara with Kara Byrnes of Mt. Olive dancing Fritz. The narration, performed by Janine Byrnes of Mt. Olive tells the story from the perspective of Clara Stalbaum. It is Clara’s most magical Christmas. The Stahlbaum’s are having a festive party the night before Christmas and Clara and her brother Fritz welcome their guests. Clara’s gift from her godfather is a Nutcracker. The other girls make fun of the ugly Nutcracker, but Clara loves him. After the party, when everyone is asleep, Clara sneaks into the room with the giant Christmas tree and embarks on a romantic dream. The audience finds themselves on a whimsical journey with Clara. The once ugly wooden toy has turned into a strong handsome prince. As the brave prince battles mice and bats, Clara and her Nutcracker prince travel through the Land of Snow into his Kingdom. Ms. Byrnes engages the audience from the first scene to the very last moment. continued on page 10

Learn To Dance “Like A Star” At Arthur Murray Studios


By Cheryl Conway et ready to put on your dancing shoes and waltz on over to the grand re-opening of the new Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Roxbury. The studio located at the Roxbury Mall for the past six years is moving to a larger facility at Route 10 East in Ledgewood. Franchise owner Danny Villavicencio of Landing says he plans to be in the new building by December 1 after he moves his dance floor and equipment. “With the popularity of people dancing, we needed a bigger facility,” says Villavicencio. The new facility – located ? mile east of the old Ledgewood Circle right next to Java Joe Bagels ? is 5,700 square feet compared to the existing studio of 4,200 square feet at Sunset Strip. Villavicencio says he hopes that the new building attracts more students since it will have better visibility located on the highway. The existing facility “it’s just hidden back there too much.” The Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Roxbury is one of 50 studios in the tri-state area and one of five studios in Morris County. A couple hundred students - 70 percent are couples 32-70 years old - from Morris and Sussex counties are current members at the Roxbury studio. Other nearby locations include Kenvil, Chatham, Denville and Ridgewood. The franchise – Arthur Murray International began in 1912 and has grown to about 300 studios worldwide. Partner-dancing featuring ballroom, social and Latin dances such as the tango, waltz, cha-cha, swing, merengue, jitterbug and country-western are taught at Arthur Murray

Dance Studio. There are currently seven full-time dance instructors but Villavicencio plans to hire four more to handle his growing enrollment. A Latin-dance exercise program- Core Rhythms- is also offered at the studio Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The calorie-burning core flexion aerobic workout has proven to shed “an inch per week” in students’ waists, he says. For the grand re-opening, new students can enjoy a free first-week trial to dance at Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Roxbury. Other dance studios do not compare to Arthur Murray, says Villavicencio. Arthur Murray Studios and its instructors “are the innovators and the most experienced,” he says. “It is the household name. Our teachers are certified and recertified” and they are passionate about dancing and teaching others, especially Villavicencio. Born in Ecuador, South America, Villavicencio says “I’ve been dancing all my life. When you grow up in a Latin household and you’re the only son, your mother drags you out to the floor and has me dance with her. Ever since then, I’ve loved it.” When he was 15, he asked his mother to teach him, and ever since he has not stopped dancing. Villavicencio, 42, grew up in Dover when his family immigrated to the U.S. when he was one-year old. He had left college in 1990 and his studies to be an engineer to follow his “real passion.” While attending University of North Florida in Jacksonville, FL, Villavicencio got a job teaching dance at

a nearby Arthur Murray Dance Studio in 1990. “I took one step into that studio and I knew what I wanted to do,” he describes. Six months later, he danced in his first competition and continued to compete all over the world specializing in American-rhythm style. “Now I pass all of my knowledge to people I teach,” he says. “I train people how to teach.” Villavicencio opened his first Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Denville in 2000 which he no longer owns. He opened the Roxbury studio in 2004. “You make a difference in people’s lives,” he says about his job. Sometimes when older couples join, they do not look “too happy,” he describes. “They seem like there’s a plateau in their relationship.” But by dancing together, “They seem to be rekindling something. We re-spark their relationship. They seem like they have a makeover. They start losing weight; they change their clothes, get haircuts, new hairdos. They feel better about themselves.” In addition to running the Roxbury studio, Villavicencio hosts the World Salsa Championship – Caribbean Dancesport Classic. In his 11th year, this year’s competition was just held Nov. 4-8 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and attracted 5,000 entrees. Competitors were aged 5-90 from all over the world such as Russia, Japan, Israel, Australia and the U.S. For more information about the Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Roxbury, call 973-252-9600 or visit www.learntodancenj.com.

Noah’s Ark Gives Second Chance To Puppy Mill Dogs


oah’s Ark is devoted to finding new homes for homeless pets. Some dogs are adopted quickly while others stay behind waiting for their future home. For two dogs, Sonya and Karma, their futures were bleak during their stays at puppy mills. Puppy mills, whose focus is solely on reproduction, often kill the mother dog after she can no longer reproduce. The puppies and dogs who are not sold are also killed to make space. Last month 6year old Sonya, now named Martini, was adopted by Rodger and Debbie Chabak. Martini had been used at a puppy mill for breeding purposes. Martini showed signs of neglect and abuse at the puppy mill and needed time to adapt to her surrounding. Luckily, she was saved and brought to Noah’s Ark to be adopted. Now living at home with her new family, she still needs time to acclimate to her surroundings. Her new owner Debbie Chabak said, “She had obviously been abused and is very skittish but is coming around, slowly. Her jaw was broken at the puppy mill she was rescued from. We love her and look forward to her trusting us and not hiding her face when we walk into the room. Another lucky dog is 10 year old Karma who also was saved from a puppy mill. Karma was adopted by longtime volunteer Gail Reilly. Like Martini, Karma was also very timid and was hesitant to trust people.

Her neglect was obvious; with only one tooth and a hip problem, Karma is only able to eat soft food and needed to rest her injured hip often. Karma’s had been sponsored by Gail for some time in an attempt to ease her into trusting people and preparing her for adoption. Gail would house Karma and treat her like a pet to equip her for her future. Her first night in her home was eventful. Gail said, “Karma howled for about an hour and a half before finally falling to sleep.” Slowly, Karma started trusting Gail and became acclimated to her surroundings. Gail would bring Karma back to the shelter hoping she would be adopted. Unfortunately, it seemed no one was interested in her. Rather than let her stay at the shelter, Gail decided to make her a permanent addition to her home. “I just wanted to let her live out the rest of her life as a normal dog. She’s trusting now and enjoys when I rock her to sleep.” Unfortunately, not every dog has the same luck as Martini and Karma. As stated on the Humane Society of the United States at hsus.org, many pet stores purchase puppies from mills. At Noah’s Ark, we hope people will consider adopting our dogs. Our dogs are all in need of a second chance and loving family. If interested in adopting a dog, please call us at 973-347-0378 or visit us at noahsarknj.org.

All Are Welcome at Community Thanksgiving Celebration


By Kathryn Davis or most Americans, Thanksgiving is a day shared with friends and family, gathering around the dining room table, and enjoying a traditional dinner and warm conversation. Unfortunately, there are those for whom the holiday is a day of loneliness and frustration. For some, high gas prices and travel costs make spending the day with loved ones impossible. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 13 million Americans who are widowed, and another 23 million who are divorced. Today, there are 37 million Americans over the age of 65. These statistics do not mean that a lonely holiday is inevitable. Caring individuals and groups all over the nation are holding community dinners. Locally, the Trinity United Methodist Church in Hackettstown is holding their third annual Thanksgiving dinner this year at the church in Starr Hall from noon until 2:30 p.m. “We started this mission because we thought there was a need in the community and church for people to have a place to go on Thanksgiving so they are not alone,” explains Janice Paulussen, event coordinator. “This is a time of year to be with people and have great fellowship.” “It really was a grass roots idea. It came from the Missions Ministry Team,” explains Rev. Dr. Frank Fowler, Senior Pastor at the church. “We do it because we want to share God’s love. We want to provide a place of community, which is at the heart of what our church does. It’s just a natural thing for us to open our doors to the community on Thanksgiving Day.” The dinner is open to anyone in the com-

munity, free of charge. “It gives people the opportunity to have a delicious dinner and be around friendly people,” Paulussen notes. The dinner provides more than just a good meal. “It’s not just for the economically struggling,” notes Dr. Fowler. “Some people just want to have their dinner in the community of the church for the day.” For those who don’t want to spend the holiday alone, he adds, “Need a family? Trinity’s offering one.” As in past years, Linda Gonia, head chef at Centenary College and a parishioner at Trinity, will oversee food preparation. The dinner, which is held buffet-style, includes traditional foods such as turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and, of course, a variety of breads and pies. Paulussen recalls the first year the dinner was held. One family that attended did not speak English. A high school volunteer who was serving that day sat down to speak with them, using the Spanish she’d learned in school. Paulussen also remembers the fellowship, and even one couple slow dancing. The second year she saw a better turnout, more volunteers, and more donations. This year, Paulussen is optimistic. Feedback has always been “very positive,” explains Paulussen. “Everyone has said the food is really great, and the fellowship among the guests and volunteers is like a family dinner.” Dr. Fowler recalls one particular incident. “I was at the dinner last year, just basically visiting with people. A couple of young men came in. They said their mother was dying and asked me to come to their continued on page 18

continued from page 14 home. There was a large family gathering for Thanksgiving dinner, and she had taken a turn for the worse that day. I went with them and found their mother was in bed in the last stages of cancer. I sat with her on the side of the bed. We spoke and we prayed. I stayed with her and prayed with the family. She passed on a few days later.” A community event like this allows people inspiring ways to connect. Observes Dr. Fowler, “Because we opened our doors, it gave us an opportunity to offer God’s love in an unexpected way. A tremendous amount of planning goes into an event like this. Paulussen works behind the scenes for weeks, soliciting

donations, organizing, and recruiting volunteers. Food is purchased last to ensure freshness. Sometimes, however, things don’t work out as planned. “Last year we had a donation of about ten turkeys from a local car dealership that really saved the day. We didn’t get enough donations, so we would have had to purchase them. God is always at work,” says Paulussen. Although some guests like to take home leftovers, any additional leftover food will continue to be donated to Safe Harbor, a

homeless shelter in Easton. Because this event is ongoing right up until Thanksgiving Day, and because supplies that are not donated must be purchased at the last minute, monetary donations will still be accepted after the holiday. Donations can be sent directly to: Trinity United Methodist Church-Thanksgiving, 213 Main Street, Hackettstown, NJ 07840. To learn more about the community dinner at Trinity Church, call (908) 852-3020 or visit www.catchthespirit.org.

The Nativity Story Told A New Way


By Elsie Walker harp proclaims the coming of angels, an innkeeper tells of turning a young couple away, King Herod raps in his court about the baby born to be the Messiah, and hands skillfully sign the Magnificant, the words of Mary as she shares how she feels about being the mother to the savior of the world. These are a few of the scenes from the nativity story to be presented at the annual Birth of Christ Told Through the Arts. The program will be held on December 6th at 4:30pm at the Port Morris United Methodist Church at 296 Center Street in Landing (parking at the rear on Main Street). After the program, a baked goods and craft sale will be held to benefit some needy families in the area. Representatives from seven area churches will share their talents and present scenes from the nativity story. The churches participating include: Port Morris United Methodist Church (Roxbury), St. James Episcopal Church (Hackettstown), Drakestown United Methodist Church (Budd Lake), St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church (Netcong), Flanders United Methodist Church (Flanders), Grace, The Church on the Mount (Netcong), and Stanhope United Methodist Church (Netcong). Also participating will be the

director of the Mustard Seed Pre-School (Chester). The style of the scenes ranges from harp music to rap. Harpist Linda Plansoen, from Grace the Church on the Mount, will provide the sounds of angels. The youth of the host church will present the scene at Herod’s court through rap. The church’s choir will provide a variety of original songs by Richard Boyer, Jr., the choir’s director and well-known in the area for his work at Pax Amicus. Puppeteer Tina Berchak and helpers will portray the manger scene. The St. James Players, a chancel drama group, will appear at several junctions as shepherds and as wise men. The church’s Intergenerational Bell Choir(director, Louise Olshan) and Youth Choir (director Pam Laura)will also perform. The rector of St. James, the Rev. Dr. Cathy Deats will present the Magnificant, the words of Mary, in a unique way. A former interpreter for the deaf, Deats will sign the words as they are read. Pianist Jack Amato from St. Michael’s will solo on “Silent Night” and accompany vocal soloists from St. Michael’s on “Mary Did You Know”, “What Child Is This?” and “O Holy Night”.

George Kolar, known as the “Poet Laurette of Stanhope United Methodist Church” will be the innkeeper and share a new original poem written for the program. Representing Flanders United Methodist Church will be Cathy Bingham singing “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem” accompanied by her husband, John. A new addition this year, singers from the Drakestown United Methodist Church, will perform two pieces: “One Small Child” and “Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)”.

"I think this is a wonderful event. All of us in this ecumenical community worship the same God. Although anytime is a great time for us to join together and share our faith, it seems more wonderful as we do that during the Christmas season through this program. What better way to celebrate the birth of Christ. It is an honor for our church to host this event each year. We hope this tradition will never end," said Judy Todt, pastor of the Port Morris United Methodist Church.

Fertility and Chinese Medicine - A Winning Combination


by Deborah Waddell, Dipl. Ac., C.A.
ne in six couples in the U.S. has difficulty getting or staying pregnant – one in three when the woman is over 35 and one in two when the woman is over 40. These figures are rising at an alarming rate, particularly among women in their 20’s. Right now more than nine million U.S. women are seeking treatment for fertility issues every year, which doesn’t even include male factor fertility issues. Additionally, of all the couples seeking reproductive help, 35 - 40 % of them have male factor infertility. There are simple and effective strategies utilizing Chinese medicine, Chinese dietary therapy, life style changes and acupuncture to help women get pregnant as naturally as possible. Reproductive therapy today is all about aggressive surgical procedure, pharmacological, and technical intervention. It is a multi-billion dollar, high pressure, and high stress business. Some couples do need the stronger Western Intervention, but for many couples there is a better, more natural way to conceive. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine offer an effective, time-tested approach to enhancing fertility and treating infertility. In fact, acupuncture has been used successfully for infertility treatment for thousands of years. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used in combination with conventional reproductive medical care or as a primary treatment approach. Our success rates prove that for those couples undergoing Western Reproductive Treatment, a 3 month treatment of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formula’s before beginning treatment can increase the efficacy of IUI’s and IVF procedures. Acupuncture can also be effective for women currently taking fertility drugs or reproductive therapy (such as IVF or IUI). Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can also be effective as a stand-alone approach to treat infertility for those not undergoing conventional medical treatment. Many of our patients who have had multiple failed IVF cycles have become pregnant using acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Acupuncture helps to regulate hormonal activity, thus regulating menstruation, ovulation, and pregnancy. So before you make a huge investment, both financial and time, in IVF and other assisted reproductive therapies,

invest in a three month program of acupuncture, Chinese formulas, dietary and lifestyle changes to help you conceive as naturally as possible. We know, like many of our patients, that time is of the essence, but we promise that taking these few extra months will be well worth it. A recent study from the British Medical Journal found that among women, who received acupuncture and IVF, the pregnancy rates were 65% higher and the rates of live births were nearly twice as high as among women who received IVF than with sham acupuncture or no acupuncture. Acupuncture helps to reduce stress and decrease the hyper-sympathetic nervous system response. Studies have shown that high stress levels decrease the likelihood of conceiving. In addition, acupuncture has been shown to stimulate chemical changes within the uterine lining, thickening the endometrium, and preparing the uterus for implantation. Treating the menstrual phases is a strategy we commonly employ in cases of “unexplained infertility,” a diagnosis frequently given when there are no specific problems detected in a Western Medicine infertility evaluation. In these cases, the ovarian follicles are developing normally on ultrasound evaluation, hormone levels are in normal range, and ovulation seems to be occurring properly. Pelvic organs are structurally sound and free of endometriosis and fibroid tumors, the endometrial lining builds adequately, and sperm parameters are within normal range. In a Chinese medicine evaluation, more subtle clues of an imbalance are detected through a detailed and comprehensive pattern differentiation diagnosis. Often times, the Western diagnosis of “unexplained infertility” are explained according to Chinese Medicine and then easily treated. According to Chinese Medicine, the kidneys and liver dominate reproduction and must be in balance to conceive. Once in balance the body will do what it was intended to do, which is to bear children. In men, acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formulas can improve sperm motility, volume and concentration as well as increase libido. From the perspective of Chinese Medicine, A recent trial published in Fertility and Sterility has shown just how effective acupuncture can be in the treatment of male infertility, leading to significant increases in the number of normal sperm and equally significant

reductions in structural defects. How Acupuncture Works The ancient Chinese believed that there is universal life energy, called Qi, present in all things ranging from infinitely tiny molecules to living breathing human beings. This Qi is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways or meridians. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained, but once the flow of energy is blocked, the homeostatic system is disrupted resulting in pain or illness. Visualize if you will, rivers that flood and cause disasters or an electrical grid short-circuiting that causes blackouts etc. This is what happens to our somatic and emotional landscapes when our Qi is not flowing harmoniously. The insertion of needles into specific points on these “channels” allows for the manipulation and harmonization of Qi, which results in improved health, and thus, increased fertility. Please do not hesitate to contact our office to set up a free phone consultation for fertility. Deborah Waddell completed her Master’s level degree from the Eastern School of Acupuncture in Mont-clair, NJ. She received her Acupuncture Certifi-cation from the New Jersey Board of of Medical Examiners (C.A.) and from the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists (Dipl. Ac.). Deborah also has a degree in Biology and Chemistry with summa cum laude Honors from Felician College.

ollen never deteriorates. It is one of the few natural substances that lasts indefinitely. (To the delight of facial tissue manufacturers.) Coca-Cola would be green if coloring wasn’t added.

Welcome Back Waterloo!

Annual Fall Frolic at CS Gymnastics – Spiderman Swings By…


by Raymond Frey few weeks ago I attended a teacher’s workshop at Waterloo Village, and heard the good news that it will be reopening for tours for school children next year. So many people in our area have fond memories of their school field trip to Waterloo. Unlike colonial villages like Sturbridge in Massachusetts and Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, Waterloo was a real town. The iron forge made gun barrels for Washington’s Continental Army. In the 1830’s, the village was a busy stop on the Morris Canal, as barges loaded with coal from Pennsylvania slowly made the 100-mile trip from Phillipsburg to Jersey City. The railroad doomed the canal in the 1920’s, and by the time of the Great Depression, Waterloo was a ghost town. It was purchased by Percival Leach and Louis Gualandi in 1946. They brought it back to life by turning it into a living history museum and a showcase for young musicians. Opened in 1964, there were thirty original buildings that dated from the 1740’s to the nineteenth century. In the 1980’s the village hosted the Waterloo Festival and School of Music. Famous musicians from all over the world came to give concerts, attracting thousands of people. The Beach Boys, James Taylor, Willie Nelson, and Judy Collins are some of the stars who performed there, as well as symphony orchestras. Later, an annual poetry festival was held. In recent years, it fell on hard times. Run by the Waterloo Foundation for the Arts since the 1970’s, the State of New Jersey jointly owned the land, which was a part of Allamuchy State Park. In 2006, the state failed to renew Waterloo’s lease and the village was closed. By that time, many buildings were badly in need of repair. In 2007, the

state took over operations. But then a court fight began. The Waterloo Foundation claimed it owned all of the historic artifacts and wanted to auction them off to pay their debts. The state said they belonged to the people of New Jersey. While the lawsuit was going on, artifacts were stored in a tractor trailer. In October of 2008, a judge ordered that the items be put up for auction, the money going to the foundation. Members of the Canal Society of New Jersey and concerned citizens pooled their money and bought back most of the historic items, returning them to the village. Last year, the Department of Environmental Protection tried to find a private organization to run Waterloo, but there were no takers. The state spent over $600,000 to try to save the buildings, and now hopes the tours next year will bring in enough money to keep things going. For me, the most important part of Waterloo is the Indian village. Built in 1988 by Herbert Kraft, an expert on the Lenape Indians, it has been beautifully restored by his son, John. It sits on an island in the Musconetcong River, and is truly a journey back in time. On the day of the workshop, I followed a group of teachers there. Light rain was falling and leaves were slowly drifting down from the trees. And for just a moment, the bustle of modern life faded away. Standing in the middle of the village, I could imagine myself living among these people, busily preparing for the winter ahead. When it opens next year, take your children and grandchildren there. Help support and preserve this historic gem, right in our own backyard. Raymond Frey is a history professor at Centenary College in Hackettstown, New Jersey.


t the annual fall celebration of gymnastics fun, skill challenges and of course candy and treats, many special friends stopped by at CS Gymnastics in Flanders. A friendly witch, a cowboy and pony, a lady bug, and several super heros stopped by to show us their tricks and earn some treats! There were apples to catch, bean bags to toss, ropes to swing on, and mountains to climb. Just when we thought we had seen it all, in from the continued on page 30

Harlin’s Point of View....

Tom’s Point of View...

Don’t Gloat!

Obama Rebuked in NJ
to those still on the job but who’s futures are uncertain, all the people in Washington Township and in the Chesters owe our deepest gratitude to you for a job well done. Thank you. With all due respect to my Republican friends (and you know who you are), there is good news to report. In many Morris County municipalities we see the continuing growth of local Democratic Committees. In Washington Township, with hundreds of people newly registered as Democrats and many more community members actively joining together, we are working to bring 21st Century thinking to our 21st Century problems. With well articulated positions put forward by local Republicans and local Democrats, all the people of Washington Township will benefit from what I hope will be reasonable and civil discussion and debate over the best public policies that our Township Committee should pursue. Now that the election is over, the chore of governing lies before us. With that in mind, I would caution those on the right not to gloat over the election results and what they might perceive as any kind of “mandate” or affirmation of the “job being done” by our Township Committee. The upcoming year is not going to be pretty. The structural problems which beset Washington Township, as for all municipalities, haven’t gone away. The idea that “shared services” agreements, that hodgepodge of separate, short term arrangements with some surrounding towns, will in any way solve these problems would be laughable if the situation wasn’t so serious. Will we see any movement in bringing New Jersey’s governing structures and operations into the modern age? I hope so. My running mate, Jody Price, is an incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable man who has given much of his time to public and community service. I’m proud to have had the opportunity to campaign with him as we both sought to raise the issues and provide some answers to the big picture concerns of meeting the challenges that confront Washington Township. We did so with straight forward discussion. So you will understand that I was somewhat bemused to read that Ken Short (our current and, I predict, future appointed Mayor) said of the election, he and Bill had a “do better with less” message. Now, no matter that I disagree with a number of Ken’s policies, how can I not love a guy who has such a continued on page 30


By Harlin Parker o November 3rd has come and gone. While the results were mixed around the state, in Morris County Republican candidates faired very well in many municipal elections. Here in Washington Township, our Republican opponents for seats on the Township Committee won by a, uh, wide margin. As much as Ken Short and Bill Roehrich might prefer to think they prevailed due to their supposed stature as “fiscal conservatives,” I think both of them know the truth lies elsewhere. As Ken Short said, Washington Township is a “very Republican, very conservative” town. That was certainly true this past Election day when a whole bunch of “very Republican” voters came out and voted for Chris Christie and continued voting all the way down the Republican line. With both Ken and Bill each garnering more than 4,000 votes each, that conclusion is inescapable. But, as the old saying goes, a win is a win. At the same time, keeping things in perspective should help guide us all as we move forward. I know my running mate, Jody Price, joins me in congratulating both Ken Short and Bill Roehrich and, as members of this community, we wish them well. One thing this local election season showed is that Washington Township can hold an election that is centered around a discussion of the issues, not centered around character assassination, anonymous or otherwise. If we can do that here, we should be able to do that all over New Jersey. And while this particular election was not decided on local issues, Jody and I have laid the groundwork, I believe, that will make it all that much harder, although certainly not impossible, for future local elections to slip back into the insulting name calling that had been the hallmark of Washington Township politics for so many years. Perhaps this year was the last for the kind of people who took cheap shots at me, impugning my motivation at questioning the wisdom of the proposed replacement, championed by Ken Short, of our widely respected local emergency dispatch service to an inferior service run by Morris County. In the end, Washington Township ducked that bullet, if only for the moment. Although with all that the Township Committeemen did over the past year or two, the damage done may be too much to save our local service. We’ll have to see. To the many dedicated, long serving dispatchers who needlessly lost their jobs, and


By Thomas Lotito ithin the last three weeks the price of a gallon of gasoline went up 30 cents a gallon because of the devaluation of the dollar. In other words, because of the Obama administration's weak dollar policy it now takes more dollars to buy a gallon of gas than it did three weeks ago. Also, hostile Democrat policies, i.e. tax increases, over regulation and deficit spending has failed to stimulate the economy and lower the now over 10% unemployment rate. The New York times in a recent editorial acknowledged that the economy was weak and is calling for more federal stimulus money along with another round of unemployment benefits along with more spending for Medicare, which has nothing to with economic growth. More government deficit spending, is being called for by the Times. Let's hope Obama is not listening. I am thankful the New Jersey voter had the fore sight to elect Chris Christie as it's new governor, who, right after the election is considering calling for a state of emergency in order to stop the deficit spending of his predecessor Jon Corzine. Even though NJ is burdened by the highest taxes in the nation, it's spending far out paces what it takes in. I believe that Chris Christie has what it takes to make the tough decisions to cut spending and balance the budget. The election of Christie in blue state NJ (safe for Democrats), is a direct rebuke of Barack Obama. Jon Corzine spent 30 million dollars on his campaign and Barack Obama came to NJ 5 times to campaign for Jon Corzine. It should be noted that Obama did not go to Virginia to help the Democrat incumbent Governor Deeds, because Deeds was down 20 points in the polls behind the Republican. Only when the polls in NJ tightened up did Obama's handlers let the president make appearances with Corzine in New Jersey. Obama's appearances along with Corzine's 30 million had little to no effect in getting Corzine re-elected. As a matter of fact, Obama's appearances actually hurt Corzine. One year ago Obama took NJ by 20 points. The people of blue state NJ are sick and tired of high taxes, double digit unemployment and a weak economy. All of which are the hallmark of the Obama administration. Obama's deficit spending, trickle up poverty, big government regulation has not inspired confidence in consumer spending. As a matter of fact, it has done just the opposite. People, even if they have money are not spending it, they are holding on to it

fearing the worst--their own unemployment. Christie's plan to spur economic growth is as follows: Christie will encourage investment and expansion of New Jersey-based small businesses by offering an additional income tax cut . Christie will reduce the corporate business tax rate to give New Jersey businesses a competitive advantage and create more jobs. New Jersey tax rates are among the highest of our neighboring states. By reducing the corporate business tax rate, Christie will create a better business climate which will attract private sector investment to New Jersey. Christie will also eliminate the “double-taxation” on New Jersey’s SCorporations for the 80,000 taxpayers currently paying the corporation “minimum” tax, putting our state in line with the other 47 states and federal government which have implemented this policy. Christie will help New Jersey’s small businesses lower health insurance costs by allowing the purchase of health insurance policies from out-of-state insurance companies , this will create competition and more consumer choices, better coverage and lower health insurance premiums . Christie's policy will also allow national trade associations and membership organizations that have health plans to market to their New Jersey members, which is not permitted by Corzine and the Democrats. Saturday November 7th, the house passed health-care reform, it is full of mine fields. In it's current form, the health-care bill will not get through the Senate and become law. In order to get enough votes for the bill House speaker Nancy Pelosi added the Henry Hyde amendment which restricts federal dollars for abortion on demand. Pro-abortion advocacy groups are furious and are willing to fight to get the Hyde amendment removed in the final version of the bill before the senate. Liberals want abortion on demand paid for with taxpayer dollars. This will create many political problems for Blue dog (Conservative) Democrats who only voted for the bill in the house because of the Hyde amendment, when they seek re-election. The Catholic Church is in support of the health-care bill because of the Hyde amendment. The health care Bill in it's current form is nothing more than bait and switch. Locally, Ken Short and Bill Roehrich won big for township committee, with a more than a 2-1 victory against Harlin Parker and Jody Price. Jim Skurchak and Kevin Nedd's endorsement of Democrats, continued on page 30

Obama Rebuked in NJ...
continued from page 28 Harlin Parker and Jody Price, overwhelmingly caused independents and Democrats to vote for the Republicans. I would like to remind my fellow citizens who happen to be Democrats, America is a Republic, we elect representatives to do the peoples business in government. America is not an open government it is a representative government. That's why there's a time limit on office terms. If elected officials do a bad job, we can vote the bad representative out next election, i.e. soon to be former Governor Jon Corzine. Before the election there seemed to be some confusion on this issue with Harlin Parker and Olbermann-Obama Democrats, thy kept writing letters and were screaming open government. Elected to nothing Democrats felt they were entitled to have their plan taken seriously by the township committee. I would like to give Jody Price an honorable mention, at the debate for township committee Jody was shocked to learn that enrollment in our schools is down 251 students since 2004, but the school budget keeps going up. At 13,800 per student that should have resulted in almost a 3.5 million savings to the taxpayer in Long Valley. The Highlands Planning and Protection Act has slowed down all building. There were only 4 new certificate of occupancies this year. Unfortunately the 400 million dollar open space ballot question passed by a narrow margin-- a huge mistake for the people of NJ who just elected a fiscally conservative governor. Open space dollars are borrowed--deficit spending dollars. By voting yes on open space you are creating a tax burden for you children and grand children. If this fact was publicized before the election, I doubt the open space question would have passed. Finally, Harlin bet me a sandwich at the Schooleys Mountain General Store that Christie would loose, I plan on collecting on that bet. Agree? Disagree? You can reach me at thomaslotito@verizon.net

Don’t Gloat!
continued from page 28 knack for great slogans? “Do better with less?” Great slogan. Good marketing. Too bad history shows that Ken, and the rest of the merry Committeemen, have continued to do worse with more! Each and every year local taxes have gone up, not down. Each and every year the services provided to the community, paid for by those increasing taxes, have gone down, not up. 2010 is not going to be any different. The local taxes we pay will go up, even though so many members of our community, those on fixed incomes, will not be getting a raise (as the official COLA increase this year will be zero!) and the services we receive for those taxes will go down. That’s unfortunate because solutions do exist. I just have not seen any movement, as I’ve watched the Township Committee in action over the past several years, towards the kinds of long term, permanent solutions we need. However, I’m an optimist. It could happen that this all Republican Township Committee will “do better with less.” We’ll see. Stay tuned. In the meantime, fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
