his September (National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month) you may see Teal ribbons adorning trees, mailboxes, lamp posts, etc. These biodegradable ribbons are to make people aware of ovarian cancer and its often silent symptoms. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the U.S. There is NO early detection test and the symptoms are subtle and often misdiagnosed which is why knowing the symptoms is so very, very critical. Tricia Fragale and Deanne Cornine will be working together locally to "teal" Roxbury, Netcong, Stanhope and Hopatcong! Turn The Towns Teal® was founded in 2007 by Gail MacNeil of Chatham, NJ, who during her 10 year battle with the disease

Turn the Towns Teal - Ovarian Cancer Awareness
realized that NOT enough was being done for ovarian cancer awareness. The Turn the Towns Teal Campaign not only consists of volunteers tying ribbons in and around town centers across the country but also distributing symptom cards to YMCAs, health clubs, libraries, church groups, etc. “The ribbons are the visual, “commented Jane MacNeil, President of Turn The Towns Teal®. “The the symptom cards are key in educating people about the disease and its symptoms as when ovarian cancer is detected in the early stages, the survival rate is 90 to 95% successful. “Gail’s gynecologist dismissed her classic symptoms on 3 separate occasions. Had she known the symptoms of ovarian cancer, she would have immediately sought the advice of a gynecological oncologist,” Jane MacNeil continued. “What happened to Gail, unfortunately, is not uncommon. Most women are not diagnosed until it’s too late. Knowing the symptoms and being personally proactive are critical in fighting this disease.” This year we have registrants in 36 states, and the enthusiasm for this awareness campaign just continues to grow. Turn The Towns Teal is giving ovarian cancer survivors a voice that they’ve never had. Many of our volunteers have lost a loved one to the disease, and they now can do something proactive in memory of their

Page 4, September 2012, Tell Them You Saw It In The Musconetcong News By Elsie Walker Last month, Dottie Wolfe of Stanhope was seeing a rainbow of colors: blue, red, yellow, and green. Those were the colors of the ribbons that she won for her lace projects at the New Jersey State Fair. In all, Wolfe won seven ribbons for her jewelry and other projects ( three first place blue ribbons, one second place red, one third place yellow and two fourth place green). Wolfe notes that she’s been participating, and winning, in the fair competition since the 1980s. “I'm always surprised when I win something, no matter what place. But more important than winning is trying to always do my best work and trying to improve. Also, our entire guild believes that it's important to display our work, so that people know that lacemaking is alive and well in Sussex County, and hopefully in the entire state of New Jersey, “ said Wolfe. That “guild” is the Lost Art Lacers which exists to perpetuate the art of lacing making. In Wolfe’s case, she was introduced to the art by a neighbor who wanted to pass down the skill and keep it alive. Wolfe has done just that. Wolfe’s entries at the fair ranged from clothing accents to jewelry.

Stanhope Lacer Takes Home Seven Ribbons
“ I entered a little tatted heart pendant, with a flower in the center and a teardrop bead at the point. Then I entered a tatted heart necklace whose colors were inspired by the ecru and lavender house across the street from the library in Newton. ……my rainbow necklace - that one got its start from looking at a beautiful rainbow topaz pendant that I couldn't afford! And, I think that not everyone knows that lace can be knitted and crocheted,” said Wolfe in describing her entries. In addition, she entered, and won second place for, a lace Celtic Cross. She explained a little bit about its origin. “The Celtic cross is a type of lace known as Carrickmacross, which had its start in Ireland in the early 1800's. Carrickmacross is a needle lace technique, involving a layer of sheer organdy, a layer of cotton net and, underneath both, a line drawing. Heavy thread is couched down with fine thread, tracing around the pattern. When all the tracing is done, the piece is removed from the backing, and parts of the organdy are cut away to form a pattern of light and dark. Then, small circles known as "pops" are added - if it doesn't have these pops it's not Carrickmacross. Other embroidery stitches can be used as well to fill in the lighter spaces; it's all according to taste. Unfortunately, there was an error in this piece that I didn't notice until it was done. I managed to leave a pleat in the net, which I should have seen when I first laid the pattern out. Oh yes, the designer of this pattern is an Irish lady, Mary Shields. She has written books about Carrickmacross, and her designs are beautiful. I took a class with her several years ago, and she very generously shared a number of her unpublished patterns with the class, “ Wolfe said.

When asked what she, not necessarily the judges, felt her best piece was, she noted it was also her favorite: the rainbow necklace. “It's a necklace with a rainbow topaz pendant, rainbow beads and some larger purple and green beads. It's tatted, but I entered it as jewelry, because it fit both categories and I could only choose one,” Wolfe said. The judges seemed to agree with Wolfe, as that piece won a blue ribbon.

October 14th is Noah’s Ark Day
by Elsie Walker Dogs and their human pals can have some fun while helping needy animals by participating in October 14th’s Howl and Hike. The event, which is a major fundraiser for Noah’s Ark Animal Welfare Association, Inc, will be held from noon to 4pm at Horseshoe Lake at 72 Eyland Avenue in Succasunna. In addition, Roxbury has declared October 14th, Noah’s Ark Day. “This recognition from the town reflects our long history as a part of Roxbury as well as the services we provide to pets and pet owners in the community. Noah’s Ark is proud to be a part of Roxbury and is grateful for the town’s support over the years,” said Anne Ellis, President of the Noah’s Ark Board of Trustees. The association’s shelter is located in Ledgewood. The hike of the “Howl and Hike” is a walk of about one plus miles. Individuals or teams can do the walk. Walkers raise pledges by asking friends, family, neighbors or co-workers to support them. Ellis explained how people can get involved: “It’s easy and secure to set up a First Giving Page at: http://www.firstgiving.com/noahsarknj/Dogwalk2012 or they can download the Pledge Form from our website: www.noahsarknj.org . There are prizes for the three top individual Pledge Raisers and the Top Team. The Top Individual Pledge Winner will win a Flat Screen TV, 2nd prize is a Kindle and the 3rd Prize is an IPod. The Top Team will win dinner at Applebee’s for up to 10 people. All these prizes have been donated, so all pledges go directly to the animals. Those people and their canine friends looking to add some Halloween fun to the event, can come in costume. There will be judging in the following categories: Cutest, Scariest, Most Original, and Best Owner/Dog Pair. Emceeing the event is Terrie Carr from WDHA and D.J. Dan Henry, with his Dan’s Classical Gas , will provide the music. In addition to the walk, music and costume contest, there will be a variety of dog-related activities, plus vendors. “We have kept the Old Standbys that people enjoy so much and have added new ones, always working on improving. Some of the activities include: Owner/Pet Caricatures by well-known pet caricaturist Steve Nyman and AAACaricatures, Petcasso Painting (let your pooch paint you a “masterpawce”), Agility Course, Cowboy Ed with his Hippity Hop Horses, Pumpkin Painting, Dog Massage, Adoption Alley and much more,” said Ellis. Vendors will be offering jewelry, dog collars and leashes, chocolates and giftware, dog walkers and dog sitting services, handcrafted greeting cards, ceramic candle warmers, a pet therapy table, handbags and storage bags, and more. This year’s Howl and Hike sponsors include: Morris K9 Campus, Castle Printing, R. P. Smith & Son, Inc., The Davenport Family, PRC Laser, Cold Nose Warm Heart Rescue, Hackettstown Honda,

JOAN SIRKIS LAVERY, ESQ.

Moretrench, The Hornyak Family, Hackettstown Diagnostic Imaging, Christie Engineering, Stonehouse Antiques and Mr. Roy Morance.

r. Ira Goldberg, a local dentist, competed in two major triathlons in 2012. The first was on July 8 when he completed the NYC Triathlon, an Olympic Distance event. Dr. Goldberg raised over $1,000 in donations for the American Cancer Society, since this date coincided with his mother’s birthday. She had passed away in 1997 from cancer. On August 11, Dr. Goldberg completed the inaugural NY/NJ Ironman. An Ironman consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike, and concludes with a marathon (26.2 miles). “After competing in dozens of triathlons over the past few years and knowing the energy level of the shorter NY Triathlon, there was no way I could pass up the opportunity to participate in this inaugural event in my own backyard. The thoughts of running over the George Washington Bridge and biking on the Palisades

Parkway were visions that got me through the months and months of training,” says Dr. Goldberg. Dr. Goldberg has been practicing dentistry for over 17 years: recently he purchased a practice across from St. Clare’s Hospital in Dover, and in approximately 2 months it will be relocated to the Roxbury Mall in Succasunna. “My staff, patients, and myself are quite excited about this relocation. We will be able to incorporate more cutting edge technology, provide additional comforts, and continue to deliver exceptional general and implant dentistry for the community.” Dr. Goldberg excels in implant dentistry: he has studied under some of the biggest names in the field, and has been placing and restoring implants for 16 years. He holds advanced degrees in multiple implant organizations as well. “One thing that separates our

Stanhope Seniors Heading for a Busy Year

By Jane Primerano he new president of the Stanhope Senior Citizen Club is a familiar face around Stanhope. Janice Hunts is active on the environmental commission and shade tree commission and was installed as president of the seniors at their August meeting at the Jefferson House at Lake Hopatcong. Peggy Findlay, another familiar face around Stanhope, was installed as treasurer. The seniors alternate years for their officer elections so there is continuity. Andy Dedinsky continues as vice president and Ann deJongh continues as secretary. The 105-member senior group charges only $10 in dues each year. They meet monthly, Hunts said, for a social and business meeting. “The seniors can meet new friends and, hopefully, learn from our programs.” “We do have to transact business at our

meetings because we are registered with the state, she said. Besides the senior club itself, a spin off is “the lunch bunch,” a group that meets around the area at different restaurants. The cost of lunch is $10 for members, but Hunts said the fee may have to be raised. She said some restaurants limit the menu for the lunch bunch to certain dishes and require payment in advance. “We’ve had as many as 70 people. It’s become very popular.” Hunts said the first of this season was a Sept. 13 luncheon at the I-Hop in Roxbury Township. The seniors sponsor day trips each year, most open to about 42 people. They raise funds through a raffle, using the Fire Department’s raffle license. A highlight of the year is the holiday party each December, Hunts said. “We expect to have a lovely year,” she said.

roadway veteran Randall Duk Kim will lead the cast in the new “Great Authors Our Loud Series” which will launched by Centenary Stage Company this fall with a free staged reading on September 16th at 3 PM of Molière’s Tartuffe. In this most famous of Moliere's provocative and hilarious satires - whose subjects of seduction, hypocrisy and greed

Randall Duk Kim - Winner of the OBIE Award for Sustained Excellence
sparked a ferocious scandal after its first reading - Tartuffe unmasks the true motives of religious impostors who have plagued and manipulated people throughout the ages. Pretending to be a religious devotee, the character of Tartuffe manages to bully his way into a rather normal household, disguising his own sexual appetite under a mask of righteousness. Moliere peppers this comedy with all the classic comedic characters, including the bossy maid, the easily duped husband, the controlling mother-inlaw, a pair of absent minded young lovers, and the deviously self- righteous Tartuffe, who is not at all as religious as his host believes him to be. Audiences can expect a lot more than just a staged reading, says Randall Duk Kim. As Kim recently told Broadway World author Gregory Allen, “We want the audience to spend a few hours getting to know these masters and the wonder of their work. They are some of the brightest lights in our cultural and intellectual heritage. They have served as guides in my own personal development besides providing me with joy, excitement, comfort, wonder, curiosity, and life-long challenge. We will endeavor to give the audience a clear and honest rendering of these plays in a relaxed atmosphere, hoping they will be surprised, stimulated, and well entertained.” Randall Duk Kim and Anne Occhiogrosso, together with Charles Bright, founded the classical American Players Theatre in Spring Green, Wisconsin in

1981, where they worked together for 35 years. Winner of the OBIE Award for Sustained Excellence, Randall Duk Kim began his early career with the legendary Joe Papp and the New York Public Theatre’s Shakespeare Festival, and continued to perform leading roles of the classics at some of America’s finest regional theatres. He has been seen on Broadway in Flower Drum Song, Golden Child and The King and I, but perhaps is most recognized as The Keymaker in the film “Matrix Reloaded”, and the voice of Oogway in the DreamWorks’ animated film “Kung Fu Panda”. After leading the Centenary Stage Company 2012 Summer Masters Class, Kim returns to Centenary Stage Company for the Great Authors Reading Series, which he and Occhiogrosso will direct, and which will feature four free presentations of the classics through the 2012-13 season. In addition to Tartuffe, upcoming plays will include Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People and Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice as well as an afternoon of Chekhov’s one act plays. continued on page 15

The program goes beyond the kid’s current school curriculum to foster literacy, providing meaningful opportunities for practice and application. Particular emphasis is placed on phonemic awareness, decoding and reading.

Activities in each session are designed to encourage reading and writing and listening, speaking, and self-evaluation. “ALOHA Reading | Writing’s research-based methods are proven to enhance the kid’s reading and writing skills, producing results and boosting self-confidence. The program is structured in a way that brings out the kid’s natural talent to learn languages and use these skills to excel in activities both inside and outside school,” says Mr. Mani Manickavelu, CEO, ALOHA USA. Mr. Mani Manickavelu emphasizes the fact that the program does not overload the kid with learning. He says, “The once-a-week sessions are 90 minutes long, during which, language arts, reading, writing and journaling are covered. At the end of each session, supplemental work is provided

Vote For More Than the Man

By Harlin Parker et’s be honest. The American economy has seen better days. It’s certainly seen much worse, too. But as difficult as these times are, better days are ahead of us, of that I am sure. I believe in this country. I believe in the people of this country. So I’m an optimist. Yet here we are in very difficult times. As we look ahead to the presidential election, we need to understand that we’ll be voting for more than just President Obama or Governor Romney. It isn’t about just choosing one man over the other. The two national conventions were more than just theatre. In the case of the Republicans, it was sort of theatre of the absurd, especially with Clint Eastwood. But even I won’t hold that over their heads. We all have a crazy uncle somewhere, eh? What the two conventions showed us was a difference in basic philosophy. It showed one group with its simple, and disingenuous, slogans, rooted in an alternate universe unre-

lated to reality, and another group, one that is made up of a whole spectrum of different people, from all kinds of backgrounds, coming together and offering a reality check on who we really are, and what we really need. We all, not just Republican Tea Partiers, believe in individual liberty. Most rational people, though, understand that we really are all in this together. We’re a country. We have to live and work together, even as we cherish and protect, and rejoice in our constitutional rights and liberties. No man is an island, nor do we want to be. The Republicans put on an ugly show of blame, blame, blame. One after another held forth blaming not only President Obama, but just about every other American who doesn’t believe exactly as they do for, well, for everything. They “built” that. What, did they go and chop down the trees, saw the planks of wood, mine the iron to forge the nails? They did it all, alone? The silliness was running rampant. continued on page 19

60 Days to The Election

By Luigi Luciano K both conventions are over and we now begin the 60 days to the election. Listening to the clips from the Democratic Convention seems to be more of the same. Meaning they are asking us to settle for more of the same. The Vice President says we are better off than we were four years ago, the President says he needs more time. I think they are both delusional. Where do they live? I can’t even name one person I know who is better off than they were four years ago. As far as the need for more time, no way. I am really tired of the blame game. This President sounds like he was dragged out of his house and forced to become President. He cries that it was worse than he thought when he took the job and that it is everyone else’s fault but his. Granted he did inherit a lot of troubles,

but he was elected because he said he would transform America and get the job done in one term or he would be a one-term president. Well 4 years later the country is actually worse off than it was when he took office. Everything he tried failed. Despite the fact the he had full control of the House, Senate and Presidency his first 2 years. His investments into alternative energy companies (who by the way were major donors to his campaign) all went broke with hundreds of millions of our dollars gone. His incentive for people to buy the GM Volt at the tune of about $15,000 of our money in tax credits failed. No one wants electric cars but he keeps trying to push them down out throats instead of drilling for more oil. Housing is worse, unemployment is the highest it has been for this long of a period, the housing market is still bleak, and the continued on page 19

Tell Them You Saw It In The Musconetcong News, September 2012, Page 19 continued from page 18 On the economy, well, the Republicans placed complete blame for the current economy squarely on the head of President Obama. After all, they say, he’s been in office now for three or so years. He has to stop blaming former President Bush. It’s all Obama’s fault now. Or is it? Time for some, uh, grown up talk. In January, 2009, the American economy was essentially in free fall. This was no ordinary business cycle recession. This was the kind of financial crash that all of us who warned against the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act would allow. This kind of crash, by its very nature, takes longer to fix. It takes even longer, unfortunately, when Congress fails to act properly. Republicans in Congress have spent the entirety of President Obama’s term desperately trying to thwart every effort to provide the kind of fixes our economy has needed. Hoover would be proud of today’s Congressional Republicans. And now that years of Republican intransigence have had their way? Why, it’s all President Obama’s fault. Trillions of dollars of national debt? All Obama’s fault. Are you kidding me? Even now, with 16 trillion dollars of national debt, the majority was produced by Republican administrations. But this is just one of so many issues on which listening to today’s Tea Party soaked Republican Party is like listening to a bad used car salesman. Mitt Romney and the Tea Partiers have made it clear that they hate “Obamacare.” But wait, now Romney says he wants to keep various provisions of the dreaded “Obamacare.” He hates the law but he likes what’s in it! Huh? His running mate, Paul Ryan, is so truth challenged he couldn’t even tell the truth about his running time in the one and only marathon he ever ran in. I don’t know much about running marathons, but the professionals say anything under 3 hours, especially by an amateur, is downright amazing. So don’t you think

Vote For More Than the Man...

that if you ran a marathon in under 3 hours, as Ryan claimed he did, you’d remember that? Ryan’s time was actually well over 4 hours. As Texas Governor Rick Perry would put it, “Oops.” But Ryan’s lying about his marathon running time is not the big worry. The big worry is how chock full of outright lies (what more polite people would call “falsehoods”) were in his speech at the Republican National Convention. I’m surprised that his pants didn’t catch fire right there on stage. And his latest Kafka-speak explanation of why he won’t divulge what tax deductions he’d eliminate in his much ballyhooed budget plan? Because he wants an open process. Open! No back room deals for Mr. Ryan. But how do you have an open process when he’s so secretive about his own plans? They’re some pair, Romney and Ryan. This is all just a sad, sad state of affairs. Over the years, Mitt Romney has taken every side of every issue. Just from examining his history of statements, from his own words, it is just not possible to figure out what he actually believes or what he’d actually do. But what is clear is that today we do see him in full, supine, obedience to the radical fringes of the Republican Party, or what used to be the radical fringes. We saw a large crowd of angry white people at this year’s Republican National Convention. It wasn’t a pretty sight. And if you think that anything they’re offering is in any way beneficial to regular, middle class folks, well, please drop me line. I have a very nice bridge I’m sure you’ll buy. It won’t be cheap but you’ll buy it. Times are tough but things will get better. America is changing. Americans are changing. Don’t panic. Don’t be scared. Don’t succumb to simple sounding slogans, especially ones based in outright lies. Nobody is going to lose here. If we all work together, respect each other, and accommodate each other, if we COMPROMISE, we can all flourish. Yes, we can. Send comments to harlin@harlinparker.org.

60 Days...

continued from page 18 deficit is beyond anything we could have ever imagined. So with that all said who in their right mind could re-elect this guy? Forget Democrat or Republican just from a practical point how can anyone vote for him? There is nothing he has done or plans to do that will get us out of this mess so why not elect someone else? How much worse can they do? It is a very interesting subject to study. How do people vote for a failure? What does this say about those people? Do they like to fail? Do they reward failure? Do they like people who can blame others and not take responsibility? Obama is the President of the United States, if he were a man he would accept that is policies have failed and take responsibility. If he did that I might actually respect him. The election is less than 60 days away. One has to ask themselves has he done what he promised? The answer is no. Did he do his job and create new jobs and stimulate the economy? The answer is no. Did he get the deficit under control? The answer is no. Should he be rewarded with another 4 years? The answer is no.

ew Jersey parents suffering with finding ways to pay for their children’s college education can finally get the solutions to their college funding problems. Most families who earn $75,000 or more and own a home assume they are not eligible for financial aid. However, most families with income over $100,000 are actually eligible for some types of “need based” financial aid. They simply need to know how to get their fair share. According to Newell, there are several easy things parents can do to substantially increase the amount of money they get from colleges. For example, “There are several schools that historically give better financial aid packages than others,” says Newell. “If families do proper income and asset planning before filling out the forms, they can increase eligibility by thousands of dollars.” Newell offers a few simple tips to parents with college funding problems. “If a

parent has only half an hour to end their college funding problems, I would suggest the following: 1. Make sure they do not over-value their home on the financial aid forms 2. Try not to save money in the child’s name as it weighs more heavily than the parent’s savings 3. Don’t be afraid to negotiate with a college for a better financial aid package. Newell offers New Jersey parents with college funding problems a free booklet that explains the 9 most common college funding problems and solutions. Free copies will be distributed at the seminar listed below.

By Dorie S. Whittenburg utumn Pleasures - What epitomizes Autumn more than a chill in the air, sweaters, changing landscapes, and football? The High School Marching Band season of course! Throughout the country, marchers follow a schedule to rival any high school sports franchise. Starting in early August, they brave the heat, sacrifice free time and practice intricate footwork, all the while playing harmonious, stirring musical compositions. These preparations culminate in school football game rallies and local and regional competitions. As musical scores set the mood for motion pictures, marching bands enhance the spectators' experience during the games, exalting successes and lamenting disappointments. Competitions are abuzz with activity, ranging from smaller festival style events to full-fledged tournaments held at professional stadiums. Experience The Thrill Upon entering the stadium, the arena is awash with the glow of high beam flood lights. Throngs of fans crowd the bleachers, eager for the performance to start. The savory aroma of culinary delights float through the air. The excitement mounts while Marchers, resplendent in their colorful attire, file onto the field in neat uniformed rows. Accompanied by the cadence of the drum line, the band fans out. A hush of anticipation settles over the audience as the drum major sets the beat and instruments snap to the ready … Let the rhythm take you away as breathtaking performances get your blood pumping and your feet stomping. The

roar of the crowd, the thrill of the step work, the fanfare, the magnificent uniforms and flourishing color guard will knock your socks off - so bring an extra pair! Enjoy all the pomp and circumstance of a marching band competition right here in your own backyard!

Thomas Edison – Father of New Jersey’s 42nd Governor Charles Edison
by Michele Guttenberger The Glenmont Estate was the home of Thomas Edison in West Orange, New Jersey and it is part of the National Park Services. However, few realize this estate is also the childhood home and birthplace to the 42nd Governor of New Jersey. Governor Charles Edison was born in this home on August 3, 1890. Charles was the oldest son to Thomas Alva Edison with his second wife Mina. He graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As a young MIT grad, he quickly found employment assisting his father in developing World War I defense technology for the US Navy. During this time he became friends with the Assistant Secretary of the Navy - Franklin D. Roosevelt. He married his college sweetheart Carolyn Hawkins on March 27, 1918 at the Edison family’s Ft Myers winter home. The ceremony was performed in the Seminole Lodge gardens. Too involved in the War efforts, Thomas Edison did not attend his son Charles’ wedding ceremony but sent a telegram - “If you have decided it must be done, then the sooner it is done the better. It can’t be any worse than life in front line trenches. Impossible for Theodore or myself to come.” His bride Carolyn was also involved in the War effort assisting medical staff at Harvard University to prepare for overseas deployments. Charles and Carolyn had a childless marriage. From 1927 to 1959 Charles was the president of his father’s record company Thomas A. Edison Inc. It was his relationship with FDR that would be the catalyst for his political career. He broke the family tradition of being Republican in the early 1930's when he became a Democrat like his friend FDR. President Roosevelt appointed Charles Edison the position of Assistant Secretary of the Navy in 1937. Edison positively agreed with Roosevelt that the U.S. Navy needed to be the strongest in the world. He advocated the construction of the large Iowa-class battleships when he was in the Navy Dept. and proposed that one of them be built at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. This decision helped secure votes for Roosevelt in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in the 1940 presidential election. In return, Roosevelt had the BB-62 named the USS New Jersey. Today it is preserved as a floating museum in Camden, NJ. Roosevelt named Edison Acting Secretary of the Navy on January 2, 1940 after the death of Secretary Claude A. Swanson in 1939. However, he resigned from this position in June 24, 1940 to run his gubernatorial campaign as a politician without political ambition. Charles Edison served only one term as Governor from 1940 to January 18, 1944. It was a tough gubernatorial campaign. It was difficult for Charles Edison to distance himself from the Democratic Party Boss – Jersey City Mayor Frank Hague. Edison abhorred Hague’s Political Machine and would not accept his endorsements. "I would rather be respected than elected" Edison would proclaim. Edison attacked Hague's political corruption and control of the courts during the campaign. When Edison became Governor, Hague retaliated by blocking many of Edison's reforms. Edison also faced a battle with state legislature controlled by Republicans. Edison wanted to reform New Jersey’s Constitution which was in place since 1844. Edison lacked the power to push his reforms to abolish the three year term; veto overrides allowances by a simple majority and limited powers of the governor (a shared power with over 80 boards and commissions). Nothing was changed during his tenure. His proposed referendums did not pass.

Ironically, a few years later, the state legislators did reform the constitution in 1947using his pragmatic nonpartisan concepts. You can still visit the Governors childhood home today and visit the site of the Edison recording studio. Visits to Glenmont are by appointment through the main visitor station.

ocal dancers, Naomi Benenson from Tewksbury Township, and Jessica King from Chester are on their way to stardom. Benenson has been chosen to play “Clara” in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in New York City this holiday season, while King will be joining the National Tour of Billy Elliot. Hundreds of children from all over the country auditioned for both roles, but the excellent dance technique, performance ability, and sparkling charm of these exceptional dancers won them their prestigious roles. Naomi and Jessica have danced together at Art of Dance in Chester, NJ since age three. Now eleven years old, and members of the Art of Dance Company, they dance 5 to 6 days a week and have proven to be dedicated dancers with excellent attitudes. Studio owner Valerie Harman says, “You just can’t help smiling when both of these girls take the stage. All our dancers work so hard, and we are so proud of each and every one of them.” Naomi is the second student from Art of Dance to receive the prestigious role of “Clara” in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, and Jessica’s role as a “Swing” in the National Tour of Billy

Local Dancers Make it Big

Elliot means she has a very challenging road ahead. She is required to learn 5 different roles and will be called upon to fill in every time a performer is sick, injured, or is unable to perform. Both girls received their roles through the New York City Dance Alliance program. Naomi auditioned for the Christmas Spectacular during NYCDA Nationals in July, while Jessica has had numerous callbacks with casting director Nora Brennan since 2010 as a result of her NYCDA audition. Both dancers have been named NYCDA Outstanding Dancers multiple years in a row, and Jessica was named a “Top 10” dancer out of 100 dancers at NYCDA Nationals in 2012. At Art of Dance, Ms. Harman’s goal is to provide the best, most comprehensive dance training available in New Jersey. With instructors from The American Ballet Theatre, Broadway Dance Center, the Rockettes, and teachers specializing with preschoolers, Art of Dance offers only the best instruction available. Art of Dance congratulates Naomi and Jessica on a job well done. With such talented children, and a supportive community, this local dance studio hopes to continue to produce the stars of tomorrow.

continued from page 23 The Roxbury High School Marching Band program encapsulates all of these ideals. Directors, instructors and parents alike work tirelessly to support their students' musical endeavors. After school rehearsals and organized competitions present an enriching atmosphere to students both during the week and on weekends. Marchers benefit from rigorous marching exercises and enriching relationships within the band community. Veteran band members offer peer leadership and mentoring to their classmates. Additionally, a commitment to musical excellence, personal achievement and teamwork are instilled. Fall is the time to head outdoors, grab a thermos of hot chocolate and enjoy a family adventure.

U

Treatment of Unexplained Infertility Utilizing Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
blood clots, dark brown menstrual flow, and incomplete discharge, followed by spotting. In Chinese medicine, we call this “static blood”. It means poor blood flow through the uterine arteries, which causes the uterus itself to become a toxic environment. This “static blood” also impacts the quality of the endometrium and thus hinders implantation. Acupuncture, along with blood regulating herbs, clears blood stasis, reduces constriction in the uterine arteries, and encourages the complete discharge of menstrual blood. As a result, new endometrial tissue becomes fresh, healthy, and ready for an embryo to become implanted. Cold Womb/Cold Uterus “Cold womb” means that the uterine lining fails to respond to the warming hormone, progesterone. Women with this condition usually have slow rising and/or early declining BBT (Basal Body Temperature). Cold hands and feet, cramps helped by a heating pad, lower back pain, low libido, frequent urination and early morning loose stools are also symptomatic of this condition. “Cold womb” not only causes the wrong temperature for the embryo to grow, like a seed growing in chilly weather, but also congeals the blood inhibiting uterine circulation. The focus of treatment is to warm the uterus, which in turn maintains progesterone at satisfactory levels. This not only helps metabolic activity, but also allows the uterus to secrete sufficient nutrients, and thereby creates a highly nurturing environment in which to implant the embryo. Stress Stress plays an important role in influencing fertility. Stress interrupts hormonal communication and leads to hypothalamic anovulation. It can also increase prolactin levels and prevent ovulation. Stress can cause tension in the fallopian tubes, and affect the transportation of the egg, sperm or embryo. Studies indicate that electro-acupuncture stimulates the sensory nerve fibers and may inhibit the sympathetic outflow at the spinal level (Fertility and Sterility vol.77. no.4, April 2002). Additionally, acupuncture increases production of beta-endorphin, which is a natural chemical in our body that helps reduce anxiety and tension, improve sleep and increase resistance to stress. So the patient becomes calmer and more at ease. Prolonged or Severe PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) Prolonged or severe PMS causes hormonal imbalance and low fertility. The response in the body to an imbalance in progesterone and estrogen levels may be irritability, bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, sleep disturbance, and food cravings in the week before the period or even two weeks into each cycle. Chinese medicine, acupuncture and herbal medicine is known to address premenstrual syndrome by regulating the energy flow in the Liver meridian. This, in turn, naturally improves the body’s hormonal balance and encourages optimum function of the reproductive system. Poor Egg Quality Although we know there is nothing we can do to change the DNA of the egg itself, we can certainly enhance follicular nourishment and development. Chinese medicine emphasizes the replenishment of Kidney Jing and Yin (reproductive essence), enhances the blood flow to the ovaries, and increases the resistance to stress, which naturally exerts a positive influence on egg quality. Deborah recognizes that most unexplained infertility is caused by dysfunction in the body and, therefore, the goal of treatment is to help the body’s systems return to correct functionality. In addition to carefully evaluating each patient, discovering subtle signs of imbalances that impact on fertility, she believes that it is important to keep the treatments congruent with the phases and stages of the menstrual cycle. Deborah utilizes years of experience, in applying acupuncture and specific timing in the use of herbal medicine and their required doses at the appropriate stage of follicle and endometrial development. Having treated a high number of women with unexplained infertility, Deborah strongly believes that most functional infertility can be treated successfully with the help of acupuncture in conjunction with herbal medicine, and the results she has seen have been enormously encouraging. Our greatest joy in life has been helping couples realize their dream of having a child. We have been truly blessed with the opportunity to help both men and women enhance their fertility. We look forward to answering any question you may have, so feel free to contact our office for a free phone consult at 908-876-3643 or feel free to stop by and read all the letters from our happy parents. Deborah Waddell completed her Master’s level degree from the Eastern School of Acupuncture in Montclair, NJ. She received her Acupuncture Certification 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.

nexplained infertility represents the most frequent diagnosis in women. It simply means that your doctor cannot find any medical explanation for why you are having fertility issues. This does not mean that there is not a problem. It means that, due to insufficient medical knowledge and current technology, the medical solution is difficult to find. However, Chinese Medicine is able to identify the subtle fertility imbalances that may interfere with a woman’s ability to conceive. More importantly, these subtle problems can not only be fully explained, but also treated successfully, with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Chinese Medicine takes a different approach to defining infertility and looks at the subtle manifestations and ramifications of imbalance across the entire body. Deborah, a Chinese Medicine fertility specialist, has over 10 years experience in the treatment of reproductive and fertility issues. She often discovers subtle fertility problems by carefully examining the different stages of a woman’s menstrual cycle and evaluating every aspect of the body’s health, individual emotions and lifestyle. Underlying factors she has found that may possibly contribute to infertility from the perspective of Chinese Medicine include the following: Blood Deficiency If a woman does not have menstrual periods, or experiences a slight or short menstrual flow, it indicates that there is not enough blood to nourish the uterine lining, which then cannot support the implantation and development of the embryo. For successful implantation the endometrium must be both thick and nourishing. Acupuncture and specific blood tonic herbs increase the production of blood and enhance its flow to the endometrial lining, allowing the body to produce more blood vessels and create more tissue and thus contribute to the successful implantation and nourishment of an embryo. Blood Stagnation With stagnation of blood, is not uncommon to see patients who complain of severe menstrual cramping, large
