Randolph High School Baseball
A Look Back At The Rams 2012 Season
By Josh Lashley he 2012 season is now in the memory bank for the Randolph High School baseball team and many involved with the program are already likely getting prepared for the spring 2013 season-and for good reason. There’s a quite a good chance that the Rams will continue the winning, highly competitive tradition that has been
established. True, the future appears bright for Randolph baseball, but it’s also noteworthy to take a look back at what the Rams were able to accomplish this spring, which was considerable. Whether recalling the big wins or the tough losses, 2012 was a season to remember for Randolph. When thinking back, Randolph head coach Ryan Casey mentions two games that stood out in terms of showing the determination of the student-athlete’s on the roster. “We lost to Seton Hall Prep, 5-4, in 15 innings,’’ Casey said. “They were one of the top ranked teams in the state at the time and we had many opportunities to win that game. We gained confidence in ourselves that we can compete against any team in the state. We beat some good teams the next week in Livingston and Hunterdon Central as well as opened the Morris County Tournament with a 10-0 win against Morris Catholic. “We won a 5-4 game over Memorial. It was the first round of the (NJSIAA North I Group IV Sectional) tournacontinued on page 10

Through prevention and after-care they offer programs to serve women survivors of domestic violence and trafficking in Morris County, NJ. In September 2011 they began their first after-care program to directly serve women of domestic violence in Roxbury, New Jersey. Each participant has received medical services, career and interview training, counseling, parenting skills and financial literacy. In addition, their program provided a weekly community support group where each woman received individual support as well as basic necessities including food, clothing and toiletry items. The goal of these services and support is to ultimately enable their participants to return to the community and live independently. Most importantly, each woman has become a part of the Freedom Forth family and has replaced her feelings of isolation, hopelessness and shame with dignity and trust.

n this era of out-sourcing overseas and mass-merchandised cookie-cutter art, a local Randolph business has taken the road less traveled and created a modern manufacturing atmosphere to support beautiful hand decorated and functional glassware. Headquartered in NJ since 1987, Peggy Karr Glass is extremely proud to say they are entirely “Handmade in America”. Peggy Karr Glass products are a perfect blend of design and craftsmanship.

Computer-aided design and state of the art laser cutters are employed by a talented staff of artists to create the tools needed to make the high-quality glassware Peggy Karr Glass is known for. It is with the help of this cutting-edge technology that a dedicated staff of artisans are able to hand-decorate each and every item that they create. Factory tours are held on a regular basis.

He noted that Grace Gives reflects what the church believes. “One pillar of our church is love thy neighbor,” Leonard shared. For Grace Gives, that “neighbor” was the surrounding communities and some
nursing homes in Hackettstown. The idea was to help organizations not associated with the church, with no strings attached. Chris Kay of Stanhope was one of two people coordinating the nursing home project. Kay’s primary function was to put volunteers on various teams at several local nursing homes and group homes. “A lot of my work happens before the Grace Gives weekend since I help coordicontinued on page 12

et’s take a look at the real estate market. Currently there are 59 sales pending in the market overall, leaving 133 listings still for sale. The resulting pending ratio is 30.7% (59 divided by 192). So you might be asking yourself, that's great... but what exactly does it mean? I'm glad you asked! The pending ratio indicates the supply & demand of the market. Specifically, a high ratio means that listings are in demand and quickly going to contract. Alternatively, a low ratio means there are not enough qualified buyers for the existing supply. Taking a closer look, we notice that the $300K - $400K price range has a relatively large number of contracts pending sale. We also notice that the $300K - $400K price range has a relatively large inventory of properties for sale at 29 listings. The average list price (or asking price) for all proper-

perhaps the owner had second thoughts about selling at this particular time. The $400K - $500K price range has the
highest number of off-market listings at 18 properties. Looking at the chart below, you might be wondering why average days on market (DOM) is important. This is a useful measurement because it can help us to determine whether we are in a buyer's market (indicated by high DOM), or a seller's market (indicated by low DOM). Active listings (properties for sale) have been on the market for an average of 104 days. Analysis of sold properties for the last six months reveals an average sold price of $484,364 and 82 days on market. Notice that properties in the $800K - $900K price
range have sold quickest over the last six months. The recent history of sales can be seen in the two charts below. The average sold price for the last 30 days was $506,346 with an average DOM of 67 days. Since the recent DOM is less than the average DOM for the last 6 months, it is a positive indicator for demand. It is always important to realize that real estate markets can fluctuate due to many factors, including shifting interest rates, the economy, or seasonal changes. Ratios are simple ways to express the difference between two values such as list price and sold price. In our case, we typically use the list-to-sale ratio to determine the percentage of the final list price that the buyer ultimately paid. It is a very common method to help buyers decide how much to offer on a property. Analysis of the absorption rate indicates an inventory of 7.0 months based on the last 6 months of sales. This estimate is often used to determine how long it would take to sell off the current inventory of properties if all conditions remained the same. It is significant to mention that this estimate does not take into consideration any additional properties that will come onto the market in the future.
ties in this market is $533,057. A total of 114 contracts have closed in the last 6 months with an average sold price of $484,364. Breaking it down, we notice that the $300K - $400K price range contains the highest number of sold listings. Alternatively, a total of 81 listings have failed to sell in that same period of time. Listings may fail to sell for many reasons such as being priced too high, having been inadequately marketed, the property was in poor condition, or

continued from front page ment and we were down 4-0 most of the game. We put up one run in the fifth inning and four runs in the sixth inning to win it. Mike Lansing had a bases clearing double with two outs in the sixth to put us ahead. Connor McMahon threw a complete game with 12 strikeouts.’’ The captains on the team helped to demonstrate to their teammates the proper way in which to approach the sport. Their leadership was vital to the teams’ success. “McMahon and Kevin Mancuso were the captains and set a good example on and off the field,’’ Casey said. “Adam Basciano emerged as a vocal leader for the team.’’ Amongst the players who strived to improve themselves in several different aspects of the sports as the season progressed was catcher Thomas Asbaty. His improvement’s impressed Casey. “Asbaty showed how much work he put into his game in the off-season,’’ Casey said. “His receiving and blocking skills behind the plate as well as his footwork on his
throws drastically improved. At the plate, he worked on hitting the ball the other way and being more patient. All around he improved and we are excited to see his improvement into next season.’’ Asbaty is one of the many student-athlete’s who return for the 2013 season and Casey is optimistic about what the future holds for his program. “We will be returning plenty of players with much experience on the varsity level who will be playing all summer and fall in order to keep getting better,’’ Casey said. “We will also have players from successful junior varsity and freshman teams this year who will look to step in to replace the seniors we lost.’’ NOTES: Randolph finished the season with an overall record of 14-12. They advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NJSIAA North I Group IV Sectional Tournament before losing a 5-2 game to top seeded and eventual Sectional champion Ridgewood. Manalapan earned the State Group IV title.

n Friday, June 29th Lauren Fabio gathered a group of friends; Gabriella Randazzo, Tyler Randazzo, Christi Gronemann, Logan Gronemann, Stephanie Tahmoosh, Aimee Shea, Rachel Contri and Hailey Hatfield to help the children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for a fundraising event. The group set up a bake sale at Sam’s Club where friends and family donated their time and energy in supplying baked goods and the Mt Olive Chili’s donated free kid’s meals. Lauren and her team spent the day raising money for sick children. It was a
wonderful day where the local community showed their support by donating for the cause bringing Lauren’s total to over $2,000 of money raised for the children at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Thank you to a local business, Premier Design for matching all contributions made that day. Watch for additional fund raising events this summer to support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with children helping children showing that kids really can make a difference in the world! We are finding cures, saving children.

What makes the weekend so special is the interactions our volunteers have with the residents. It is rare in today's society to get something for nothing, but that is at the center of what we do. We know as Christians that God extends us love, grace, and compassion with no strings attached. The volunteers are simply reflecting what God offers us,” Kay shared.
For one of the weekend’s projects, the church facilities took on the look of WalMart, with different departments for a free garage sales for those in need. The congregation provided the goods and those who came were by invitation only, with the names of the needy provided to the church. Volunteers also helped in a variety of other areas such as putting up wind screens at Budd Lake beach, beautifying eight local parks, helping at Noah’s Ark, and making

major improvements to three homes. For the latter, Grace also donated the materials and was helped by licensed contractors who donated their time. “ I was assigned to a home that needed work inside and out. I was one of about 50 Grace members who worked for two days painting, power washing, renovating the kitchen, mowing the lawn and planting flowers. Much, much more was done but that was only the tip of the iceberg. I started out wanting to give back some of what the Lord has given me, but I received so much more back! All these Grace members worked together with a happy hum of productivity. At lunch, one of the members sang and played the songs we love from church. I went home tired, but so full of joy! I still think of the family and what their reaction must have been, “ said Helen Ray of Randolph. “The church has really embraced this part of the fabric of who we are, “ said Leonard in talking about the outreach. He also shared that, “at Grace, our mission is to
build up generations of families that are built to last.” In many cases, family members worked side by side on Grace Gives projects. In talking to some of the volunteers from that weekend, there was a sense of “play it forward”. It was clear that they felt blessed and wanted to pass that on. “I helped out at the House of the Good Shepherd by playing the harp. Each year there's something special that gives me back more than I give. Last year, it was the faces on the dear seniors who got to try out playing 'angel' music on the harp! [It was] just a glissando and that’s a piece of cake to do. The joy on their faces was so cool. Like the best thing since sliced bread! This year one lady clapped after each song I played and kept saying she was my 'audience.' It was a small way to brighten the day, bring joy and make a difference in people’s lives. I've been so blessed by Grace and so it's only natural to turn it around and give a blessing back, “ said Linda Planseon of Randolph.

Many of their exotic traveling destinations included a family package plan with their sons. Although the two Beckmann sons are well into adulthood, this Baby Boomer Mom has recently trekked the family through the bamboo trails of Viet Nam.

The story follows the adventures of Dorothy, a shy young girl who finds herself magically transported to the Land of Oz, which resembles a fantasy version of New York City. Befriended by a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Cowardly Lion, she travels through the land to seek an audience with the mysterious "Wiz", who they say has the power to take her home. THE WIZ is a new summer initiative of the Growing Stage that features the talents of high school and college aged students under the direction of the company’s professional artistic team. Amber Palmer of Somerset plays Dorothy with Cassandra Daniels of North Plainfield, Jacob Burlas of Oxford, and Jake Wallace of Netcong portraying the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Man.

Murray #159 Roxbury Township Police Department Traffic Division Desk - (973) 946-5016 Cell - (201) 247-1810 firstname.lastname@example.org http://facebook.com/RoxburyPD The May 30 event was intended to focus on educating motorists about the potential for drivers being distracted while transporting animals in a vehicle, and what precautions motorists can and should take to protect themselves and their animals. That was the purpose of the event, nothing more and nothing less. This was a public education initiative about public safety and distracted driving, not a law enforcement initiative. The State of New Jersey’s has NOT passed a “new law” requiring animals to be restrained while being transported in a vehicle. In fact, for over fifteen (15) years, New Jersey has had a law on the books called “improper transport” (4:18:22). This law was explained during the event to highlight the fact that the NJSPCA does have the authority to file animal cruelty charges if and when animals are observed being transported in an improper manner. The State of New Jersey is NOT mandating that animal owners run out to their local pet store or go online and purchase an animal harness that integrates into a vehicle seat belt system. While the NJSPCA urges motorists to consider purchasing a harness to keep their animals safe, New Jersey state law does not require these devices. The NJSPCA is NOT patrolling the streets and highways of New Jersey actively seeking dogs on the laps of drivers or unrestrained in the back seat of a car. We partnered with the NJMVC to send the message to motorists that there are ways to transport animals in a safe and secure manner that will protect both motorists and animals alike. However, if in the course of their duties NJSPCA personnel observe an animal being transported in an unsafe manner, they will take corrective action by issuing a summons and/or warning and spend some time educating the motorist. Summonses and/or warnings can and will be issued when motorists are observed transporting animals in such a manner that will or could cause harm to the animals or others. Animals being transported unrestrained in the back of pick up truck beds, sitting on a drivers lap, or with more than 30% of their bodies protruding out the windows of a vehicle are examples. Simply slipping a leash through a seat belt or some similar method of ensuring that an animal does not become a flying object if a crash occurs is a good first step. Unfortunately, this issue has been twisted and blown out of proportion. All we are asking is that motorists take a common sense approach when transporting their animals to protect themselves and their animals should an accident occur.
So...Is There Now A Law To Restrain Your Pet In The Car? Everyone Thinks So, But Think Again!!
by Valerie Gardner myself live in Roxbury Twp, and for the past couple of months, have heard all different rumors about this being a law. First, i myself heard something on Channel 12. Then friends said they were in one of the local pet stores and heard many customers discussing which harness to buy that will fit their dog and attach to the rear seat belts. Pet Store customer service reps were affirming this was a new law. Some were even saying that the ticket for an unsecured dog in the car would be over $600!! Then i heard the new law referred only to small dogs or cats sitting on the driver's lap...yadda, yadda, yadda!! So, being i myself have a dog (and yes he sits or lays in the back seat all the time, good dog that he is!!) i decided the time had come to investigate and see what the police had to say. I spoke on the phone with Sgt. Daniel Murray from the Roxbury Police Department. He was quite knowledgeable of this subject and sent me info in writing that all of you should read. I appreciate his assistance in setting the record straight. THANK YOU SARGENT!! Please read the following that he was so kind to forward on to me. "Here is the media statement from NJSPCA I located on-line. Hope it helps to clarify a little better on the animal restraint controversy and how it came to be. Any further

STATEMENT BY: Matt Stanton, Spokesperson NJSPCA It’s unfortunate that so many news organizations – local and national - have chosen to mischaracterize the intent of an event the NJSPCA held with the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) on May 30, 2012 regarding unrestrained animals in vehicles. The purpose of this statement is to set the record straight and clarify any misconceptions people may have as a result of incorrect news reports from the event.

Thomas Edison Dug Himself Into a Money Pit with An Iron Ore Mine in Ogdensberg, NJ
always seemed to persist. Edison even shut down his mill in 1892 thinking that different replacement parts could improve production. But, it was more than machinery issues that kept this business in the red. His new business also had a dismal customer list. The other unforeseeable factors contributing to the demise of his business was the abundant discovery of better iron ore deposits out west and the emerging railroad lines capable of moving mass loads of ore cargo to far distances. It wasn’t long before the iron ore business started to become a big money pit for Edison. He lost a great deal of money. It had become even a harder iron pill to swallow. To finance the operation, he had sold his stock in General Electric. It was a stock that kept rising in value. His sold shares would soon reach four million dollars. His response to his bad investment decision and the missed out wealth in GE stock was "Well, it's all gone, but we had a hell of a good time spending it." He eventually found good fortune again and recovered from this loses with his phonograph and the motion pictures business. You can still see some of Edison more successful inventions.

by Michele Guttenberger homas Edison was a great inventor but not all of his projects were as bright as his electric light bulb. In 1892 Edison relinquished his reign in the electric industry with the merger of his Edison General Electric. It was combined with several other companies to form one corporation. Feeling diminished by this merger, he wanted to find another brilliant new venture. He advertized “I’m going to do something now so different and so much bigger than anything I’ve ever done before. People will forget that my name ever was connected with anything electrical.” That something bigger was iron ore mining and refining. The US Eastern Iron industry was a tough business to be in. What was left in eastern iron ore mining were poor yields that contained rock and debris. Unfortunately, steel production from this iron ore needed to be free of impurities. Edison thought he had the answer to this perplexing problem with electromagnet separation. Edison reasoned that since iron is magnetic, an electromagnet could separate the iron from the debris and purify it. In 1889 he put Sussex County’s Ogdensberg, New Jersey on the map with perhaps the largest ore-crushing mill in the world. This mill pulverized large chunks of ore that came directly from the mine. Edison‘s big plan was to process 1,200 tons of iron ore every 20 hours. With three magnetic separators, it could produce a total of 530 tons of refined ore. However, technical problems with his machinery
