ntroducing Kids Connect,
Montville’s newest preschool
and child care center located
at 2 Changebridge Road.
Kids Connect provides a 21st
Century educational environ-
ment including technology, fit-
ness, and a thematic curriculum.
You may wonder why the
philosophy at Kids Connect is
based upon such 21st century
learning, and this is because it
provides newly expanding ideas
that are student driven rather
than teacher-centered. It incor-
porates students connecting
with one another as the teacher
observes, asks questions to pro-
voke critical thinking, and
guides each student to compre-
hend the world around them.
They also have a vision of the
children at Kids Connect being
introduced to technology
through software that provides
developmental progression, and
will ultimately allow them to
network with others of a wider
global community.
Kids Connect strives to
provide a healthy environment
through the use of movement
and exercise. Through physical
activity, your child will establish
a love for
learning and
begin to foster
listening skills
as well as pro-
longed con-
centration. As minute as these
attributes may seem, they
become the foundation of life-
long skills including sharing,
group work, attentiveness, and
leadership – composing the
greatest well-rounded individ-
ual. Supplementary to the phys-
ical fitness aspects of their pro-
grams, the school supplies chil-
dren with organic beverages and
snacks to encourage a healthy
lifestyle.
Additionally, Kids Connect
has teamed up with Eli Kababa
of the Athletic Arts Dance
Academy, where Mr. Kababa
facilitates Creative Movement
classes to those enrolled at the
preschool. Creative Movement
is geared towards teaching flexi-

T
he American Taxpayer
Relief Act of 2012 was
signed by the President
on Jan. 2, 2013.
The most visible tax
change in the new tax law is
the two percent increase in the
payroll tax. Everyone who
draws a paycheck or has self-
employment income will pay
more in 2013. If you
have $40,000 in wages
in 2013, you will pay
an additional $800 of
payroll taxes over
what you paid in 2012
on the same amount
of wages.
The new law
keeps the income tax
rates the same as they
were in 2012 for most
taxpayers and makes
them permanent.The
new 39.6 percent tax
rate will apply to sin-
gle taxpayers making
over $400,000 and
couples making over
$450,000.
The law puts limitations
on the itemized deductions and
personal exemptions for singles
making over $250,000 and
married couples making over
$300,000.
The long-term capital
gains rate will be 20 percent for
singles making over $400,000
and couples making over
$450,000. The prior 15 percent
and zero rates will continue to
apply to those in the lower
brackets as they did in 2012.
The tax-free distribution
to charity from an IRA by a
taxpayer age 70-1/2 or older
is extended through 2013.
Special rules apply to
December 2012 and January
2013 distributions if the trans-
fer is made to the charity by
Jan. 31, 2013.
A number of education
tax incentives were extended
or made permanent in the new
tax law.
The new law makes per-
manent the $1,000 child tax
credit.
The alternative minimum
tax (AMT) has been perma-
nently patched with a 2012
exemption amount of $50,600
for unmarried taxpayers and
$78,750 for married taxpayers.
The exemption amount will be
adjusted annually for inflation.
On the business front, the
50 percent bonus depreciation
and the $500,000 business
expensing option are extended
through 2013. There are also
numerous business tax incen-
tives extended through 2013.
There is much more in
the new tax law. Please contact
us for a review of your
tax considerations under the
American Taxpayer Relief Act
of 2012.

New tax law signed as New Year arrives By Robert Sokoloff, CPA
M
y column today
starts with an e-mail
I received from a
client; no doubt he just for-
warded it to me from one of his
buddies who got it from one of
his friends or co-workers. I’ve
devoted the next two para-
graphs to sharing it with you.
The Food Stamp Program,
administered by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture, is
actually proud of the fact it is dis-
tributing the greatest amount of
free meals and food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the National
Park Service, administered by the
U.S. Department of the Interior,
instructs us: “Please Do Not
Feed the Animals.” Their stated
reason for the policy is because
the “animals will grow dependent
on hand-outs and will not learn to
take care of themselves.” This
ends today’s lesson.
More people than ever in
U.S. history are depending on
the government to pay for
their food, medical care and
housing and I want to share
with you a phone call I
received last week in response
to advertising a house I own in
Morris County for rent. The
caller was excited to hear that
the price was rather reasonable
for a three-bedroom rental at
$1,800 per month. She told me
she has four children and was
being evicted from her current
home because the county
found out that she and her kids
were living in a two-bedroom
rental, which was determined
to be against the law. Three
bedrooms would be acceptable.
“Aren’t you excited?” she
asked. Before I could answer,
she chimed in again stating
that the county would pay all
but $60 of her $1,800 month-
ly rent obligation. I asked
about her husband, to which
she replied, “I haven’t got one,
but the father of my four kids
visits often.”
“So what does he do?” I
inquired. Her response severely
surprised me. He works in
management and makes
around $70,000 annually
before any bonuses are paid.
“Really,” I replied in
amazement. “So the town pays
your rent. Anything else?”
“Yes,” she proudly stated.
“They pay for all of our food,
medical and busing the kids to
school.”
I was really getting angry
at this point. “Your ‘husband’
makes $70,000 annually and
you’re on the county dole?”
She responded that it was so
expensive to live in the area
and she needed some help. So
what gives her the right to live
in an expensive area that she
can’t afford? Answer: nothing!
She and her boyfriend are
scamming the system for their
own personal advantage and
getting away with it. The gov-
ernment cannot force people
to marry and therefore she is a
stay-at-home, non-working
mother with four illegitimate
kids. She is, in my opinion, a
criminal, who has legally
cheated the system for years.
Consequently, I did not enter-
tain her tenancy!
Is there a lesson to be
learned from these two related
stories? The first one is have a
family without the sanctity of
marriage. The government cre-
ated and perpetuated its own
problem of abusive behavior by
rewarding this behavior,
instead of cutting-off aid after
the second, third or fourth
child. Secondly, if the animals
are trained never to hunt because
food is always provided, you’re
going to have a lot of fat, lazy ani-
mals waiting for more hand-outs!
Worse yet, the rest of us con-
tinue to pay for this behavior
in perpetuity! One simple solu-
tion would be to demand a
level of work and activity for
the public good and welfare in
order to receive aid for all of
those able to work. No work:
no pay and no benefits. I
should add here that the
prospective tenant who called
me works part time off the
books at a local store so she
produces not a single penny in
revenue to off-set the thou-
sands of county dollars she
receives every month. She has
nothing to do to increase her
income except to make more
children with her boyfriend for
the monthly reward. Given
the chance to do the same
thing, how many couples
would not marry, have the
same amount of kids and col-
lect income, housing and ben-
efits for decades? My guess is,
this has and will continue to be
a growth industry, until the
government puts an end to it
or modifies it! And that is part
of today’s lesson too. What
about pride, up-bringing,
morals and ethics? And not to
mention religion? Shouldn’t
these also be factors?
Well, introduce depraved
violent video games into our
culture, remove God from the
pledge of allegiance and from
the classrooms of American
schools, and the results are an
increase in violence (some
involving guns), a decrease in
academic achievement and an
acceptance of mediocre grades.
In turn, this leads to a “depen-

P
rofessional tooth scal-
ing was associated with
fewer heart attacks and
strokes in a Taiwanese study.
Among more than 100,000
people, those who had their
teeth scraped
and cleaned by
a dental pro-
fessional had
a 24 percent
lower risk of
heart attack
and a 13 per-
cent lower risk
of stroke com-
pared to those
who had never
had a dental
cleaning.

tooth scaling
frequent if it
occurred at
least at twice
or more in two
years. Patients
were followed for seven years
and had no history of heart
attack or stroke at the begin-
ning of the study.
“Protection from heart
disease and stroke was more pronounced in participants
who got tooth scaling at least
once a year,” said Emily
Chen, M.D., a cardiology fel-
low at the Veterans General
Hospital in Tapei, Taiwan.
Dr. Chen said profes-
sional tooth scaling appears
to reduce inflammation-caus-
ing bacterial growth that can
lead to heart disease or

M
artin Luther King,
Jr. played a pivotal
role in race rela-
tions in the United States for
nearly a decade. He helped
secure the end of legal segre-
gation of African-American
citizens, created the Civil
Rights Act of 1964 and
served as a source of inspira-
tion for black individuals
across the globe.
Dr. King did not begin
his life as a crusader or public
figure. He had much more
modest beginnings in rural
Atlanta. Born Michael King,
Jr., he was the middle child
of Michael King, Sr. and
Alberta Williams King.
Michael King, Sr. served as
pastor of Ebenezer Baptist
Church upon the death of his
father-in-law, who was the
church’s prior pastor. At this
point, the elder king decided
to change his name to
Martin Luther to honor the
famed Protestant religious
leader. His son soon decided
to adopt the name as well.
A religious family, the
Kings tried to shield their
children from the realities of
racism that were alive and
well in the country. They
believed racism and segrega-
tion to be an affront to God’s
will, and Martin, Sr. discour-
aged separation of class and
taught these lessons to his
children. Those lessons res-
onated with Martin, Jr.
Dr. King attended
Booker T. Washington High
School and was so advanced
he was able to skip both the
9th and 11th grades. He went
on to college at the age of 15,
graduating from Morehouse
College in 1948 with a
degree in sociology. In his
junior year of college, King
enrolled in a Bible class that
sparked a renewed enthusi-
asm for the ministry. He later
enrolled in the liberal
Crozer Theological Seminary
in Chester, Pennsylvania,
where he received a
Bachelor’s of Divinity. Later

he attended Boston Univer-
sity and earned a Ph.D. at the
age of 25. It was during his
time in Boston that he met
his future wife, Coretta
Scott. While he was com-
pleting his dissertation work,
Dr. King became the pastor
for the Dexter Avenue
Baptist Church of Mont-
gomery, Alabama.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
became directly involved in
the civil rights movement
after the head of the
local NAACP chapter in
Montgomery met with him
on the night that Rosa Parks
was arrested for failure to
give up her bus seat to a
white passenger. Dr. King
helped institute the Mont-
gomery Bus Boycott. During
this time, African-Ameri-
cans refused to ride the
public bus system in
Montgomery. The boycott
lasted 382 days. During that
time, Dr. King’s home was
bombed due to his involve-
ment in the boycott, and he
was arrested for conspiracy.
His work paid off on
December 21, 1956, when
the Supreme Court ruled
that racial segregation on
public transportation was
illegal.
Dr. King promoted non-
violent protests against
unfairness to the African-
American community, urging
civil disobedience and peace-
ful protests, tenets that
formed the basis for
the Southern Christian
Leadership Confer-ence, or
SCLC, which he led. He par-
ticipated in numerous nonvi-
olent protests and was arrest-
ed several times. During one
stint in jail, he penned his
famous, “Letter from a
Birmingham Jail.”
Dr. King established a
relationship with fellow
African-American civil
rights activist Bayard Rustin,
who shared similar interests,
including the teachings of
Gandhi. Rustin would serve
as King’s mentor and also was
the main organizer of the
March on Washington that
took place on August
28, 1963. Approximately
250,000 demonstrators were
involved in the march, and it
was the largest demonstra-
tion in the nation’s capital
up to that time. In front of
the Lincoln Memorial, Dr.
King issued his famed “I
Have a Dream” speech. He
later met with President John
F. Kennedy to appeal for
greater rights for African-
Americans and called for an
end of segregation.
As a result of his civil
rights efforts, Dr. King was
awarded the Nobel Peace
Prize on December 10, 1964,
at the age of 35. He was the
youngest person ever to
receive the honor. He donat-
ed all of the prize money to
his racial equality effort.
Through the late 1960s,
Dr. King expanded his Civil
Rights Movement to other
cities. But he was often met
with criticism, especially
when he appealed to white
middle-class citizens. Many
militant black organizations
considered King’s methods
too weak and ineffective. His
support was faltering and Dr.
King grew weary of marches,
jail and protests. However, in
April of 1968, a labor strike
in Memphis drew King’s
attention, and he gave a
speech about the sanitation
labor dispute, which would
prove to be prophetic. The
next day, on April 4, Dr.
King was hit by a sniper’s bul-
let while standing on an out-
side terrace of his motel room
at the Lorraine Motel. King’s
words from the previous day,
including, “I’ve seen the
promised land. I may not get
there with you. But I want
you to know tonight that we,
as a people, will get to the
promised land,” were haunt-
ing. James Earl Ray was
charged with the assassina-
tion.
In his honor, Americans
have celebrated Martin
Luther King, Jr. Day as a fed-
eral holiday since 1986. King
was posthumously awarded
the Presidential Medal of
Freedom in 1977. Many
streets have been renamed in
his honor, and Dr. King
remains a source of inspira-
tion decades after his death.

“Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into a vale of grief,
And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay— Then leaps
in spring to his returning kisses.” – Charles Kingsley

P
hysical therapists can
use a variety of envi-
ronments and tools to
provide therapy to patients.
Aquatic therapy is the use of
a water environment and
specifically designed activi-
ties to enhance and restore a
person’s functional abilities.
Some of the inherent
properties of water make it a
very beneficial environment
for many patients. The buoy-
ancy of the water provides
assistance with movement. It
also decreases the effect of
gravity on the body, which
enables patients to support
themselves more easily and
to bear weight on weak or
painful extremities due to
the decreased stress placed
on muscles, joints and bones.
Aquatic therapy is pro-
vided in a heated pool, tem-
peratures ranging from 92–96
degrees. The warm water
relaxes muscles and allows
for improved joint range of
motion.
Hydrostatic pressure is
the pressure of the water on
the body. This pressure of the
water surrounding the body
helps circulate blood from
the legs to the heart, often
reducing swelling in the
ankles and feet. Once
swelling is reduced, joint ten-
derness may decrease and
range of motion can increase.
Water provides resist-
ance to movement, allowing
for improvement in balance
and strength in all muscle
directions. On land, resist-
ance is felt in only one direc-
tion, which leads to an over
development of some mus-
cles and under utilization of
others.
After an illness, injury
or surgery, pain and limited
ability to bear weight may
impact a patient’s ability to
participate in land based
physical therapy comfortably.
In water, the pull of gravity
on the body is not as strong
as on land; therefore, motion
and functional activity can
be more comfortable in the
pool. Water supports the
body, reduces joint stress and
provides resistance, as well as
assistance to movement.
Although aquatic thera-
py does not work for people
with some medical condi-
tions, it is very beneficial for
most patients with various
diseases and conditions. This
form of therapy helps to
improve blood circulation,
muscle strength, balance and
endurance. It is also helpful
in reducing blood pressure

D
og owners should
take coughing very
seriously. The issue
could be tied to kennel
cough, pneumonia, canine
flu or similar bronchial issue.
No matter the core issue,
multiple rounds of medica-
tions may have already been
tried, only to find that the
pet is still hampered by a
coughing condition caused
by some unknown organism,
or pathogen. Perhaps, as is
possible with most organ-
isms, the involved strains
have developed a resistance
to common prescriptions.
Causes of coughing
Pneumonia, kennel
cough, a foreign object,
household products (any-
thing that can be
aerosolized) or genetic con-
ditions such as tracheal
hypoplasia can cause cough-
ing issues. The most common
infectious cause is kennel
cough, also referred to as
Bordetella (bordetellosis) or
tracheobronchitis, and is
among the more typical
upper respiratory issues that
may affect dogs.
Kennel cough
This common issue is
highly contagious and is
known to affect a high per-
centage of dogs. The board-
ing home or the groomer’s
are easy places to contract
the illness but exposure can
be anyplace dogs contact
each other. Causative agents
of, or contributors to, this
common upper respiratory
issue may include: para
influenza, Bordetella bron-
chiseptica and mycoplasma.
Canine adenovirus, reovirus
and even the canine herpes
virus have been known to be
contributors. Usually, more
than one of these are con-
tributors. Initial symptoms
include a hacking, dry cough,
with a retching-like action.
Often, the sound exhibited
may resemble that of “honk-
ing” or what a dog with a
hairball may sound like.
Occasionally, the cough is
accompanied by a nasal dis-
charge that is quite watery,
rather than heavy. Advanced
cases may lead to lethargy,
along with fever and lack of
appetite; occasionally, pneu-
monia can result.
Pneumonia issues
Pneumonia has various
forms, but as an inflammato-
ry illness of the lungs, it can
be life threatening, as it
strongly affects the ability of
the body to absorb oxygen
from air taken in. With an
infection resulting in pneu-
monia, the “sacs” in the
lungs, responsible for collect-
ing the oxygen needed by the
body, become filled with
fluid, thereby inhibiting the
ability to collect enough oxy-
gen to support the body.
Symptoms of pneumonia
consist of coughing, elevated
fever, difficulty breathing
and chest pain. If these signs
are noted then an emergency
veterinarian visit is recom-
mended.
Dog flu
Canine influenza (dog
flu), is a highly contagious
respiratory infection caused
by a virus. Canine influenza
is a relatively new condition.
The first document-
ed case in the U.S.
was in January
2004 at a Grey-
hound racetrack in
Florida. There have
since been out-
breaks throughout
the country. The
canine influenza
virus is closely related to the
virus that causes equine
influenza. It is thought that
the equine influenza virus
mutated to produce the
canine influenza virus.
Two clinical syndromes
have been seen in dogs
infected with the canine
influenza virus — a mild
form of the disease and a
more severe form that is
accompanied by pneumonia.
Dogs suffering from the
mild form of canine influenza
develop a soft, moist cough
but some dogs have a dry
cough similar to the kennel
cough caused by the
Bordetella bronchiseptica/
para influenza virus complex.
Therefore, it is not uncom-
mon for true dog flu cases to
be misdiagnosed as kennel
cough. Dogs with the mild
form of influenza may also
have a thick nasal discharge,
which may be caused by a
secondary bacterial infec-
tion.
Dogs with the more
severe form of canine
influenza will develop a high
fever and show clinical symp-
toms of pneumonia, such as
rapid, labored breathing.
Pneumonia may be caused by
a secondary bacterial infec-
tion.
Because this is a newly
emerging disease, almost all
dogs, are susceptible to infec-
tion and have no immunity.

W
hen a young adult
leaves the comforts
of home to set out
on his or her own, homeown-
ers are left with a bedroom that
just calls out to be made over.
However, the experience of a
child leaving the nest can be
bittersweet, and some parents
struggle with the decision to
renovate or leave the room
intact. Converting a room can
be an emotional process, but
there are several different ways
to put a newly vacated room to
good use.
What to do with a room
may hinge on who still lives in
the house. Another child, for
instance, may be interested in
“upgrading” to the room if it is
larger or has amenities that the
previous bedroom does not
offer, like a better view or a
bigger closet. Some have plans
for a craft space or a library.
Perhaps the room would be
perfect for a “man cave” or a
quiet sitting area.
Keep in mind that the room
may hold sentimental value for
the child, so converting the
space is not something that
should happen abruptly or
without prior notice given
to the former occupant.
Communication is key before
the room can be permanent-
ly changed into a new room.
To get started, follow these
guidelines.
•Start slowly. Broach the sub-
ject with the former occupant
of the room to gauge his or her
reaction to the idea. If your
child is supportive, then the
process may move along more
quickly. If not, you may need
to wait a little longer before
starting the renovation.
•Go through the room’s con-
tents together. Your child may
feel his or her private sanctum
was violated if you simply box
up belongings and ready them
to be taken away. Instead, go
through the room together and
allow your son or daughter to
pack away items of sentimental
value. Other items can be
donated. Consider which
pieces of furniture might be
kept and repurposed.
•Keep some items of value.
Remember, you don’t want
your child to feel like his or her
identity has been erased from
the house. Find a way to incor-
porate something from the
bedroom into the new design
to pay homage to the person
who lived and grew up in the
room. Keep a square of
removed wallpaper and frame
it. Put some well-read child-
hood books on a shelf. Have a
place of honor for the first soc-
cer trophy. This way when
your child returns home there
will still be a piece of the
room’s former identity.
•Work through your new
design plan. Before removing
furniture and any items, draw
up a detailed renovation plan
and establish a budget. If the
room will become a guest
room, the basics may already
be there and you simply need
to introduce new linens and a
new paint color to transform
the space. Consider keeping
the room functional as a sleep-
ing space in some way —
whether moving in a sleeper
sofa or making a regular bed
into a daybed — so when your
son or daughter comes to visit,
he or she will have a comfort-
able space.
•Make it sophisticated. Adult
spaces differ from children’s
spaces in their sophistication.
Starting fresh with more
streamlined furniture and
bolder colors in the room will
give it a grownup look.
Converting a child’s for-
mer bedroom into a new and
exciting living space for adults
takes some planning and sensi-
tivity. A collaborative effort
between parent and child can
make the process can go much
more smoothly.

emodeling a basement
is a popular home
improvement project.
A finished basement makes
the space more functional
and, when done correctly, can
add a considerable amount of
living space to a home.
Finishing a basement
pays dividends in additional
space in a home that doesn’t
require the same level of
investment as putting an addi-
tion on the house. Also, the
groundwork for a finished
room is already there, as most
basements are already set up
with a poured concrete floor
and some walls, usually cinder
blocks. Some electrical com-
ponents, plumbing and the
creature comforts of drywall
and a more inviting floor
might be all that’s necessary to
finish a basement. The process
can be labor-intensive, and
many people prefer to leave it
to a professional contractor.
Whatever finishing method is
chosen, homeowners should
follow the proper procedures
when doing the work.
DO start with a detailed plan.
Measure out the basement and
mark any items that cannot be
moved, such as a furnace,
water heater or pipes. Create a
design board that showcases
the materials you plan to use
on the project. Think about
ways you plan to arrange furni-
ture and consider all of the
possible uses for the room.
Will it be a home theater?
Will someone be sleeping
down there? Each scenario
will require certain amenities
and safety requirements.
DON’T plan to finish the
entire basement. Doing so will
leave you without a storage or
utility area where you house
holiday decorations, tools, lug-
gage and similar items.
DO get the scoop on building
codes. Knowing what the
municipality allows in base-
ment remodeling will help you
to customize a plan that is
functional, safe and legal. No
one wants to be slapped with
fines for failing to follow the
rules. Plus, failure to meet
building codes could mean the
work that has been done must
be torn out and redone. It pays
to follow the chain of com-
mand and secure permits
while having all work inspect-
ed.
DON’T overlook adequate
lighting in your refinishing
plan. A basement is likely one
area of the house that has lim-
ited natural light pouring in.
With traditionally small win-
dows, or no windows at all, a
basement needs ample light-
ing in its design scheme. This
may include a combination of
overhead and task lighting.
Ample lighting will help the
room feel like part of the
house and not just a forgotten
storage area.
DO take into consideration
moisture issues in the base-
ment. Many basements are
plagued by moisture issues
ranging from water seepage to
condensation forming on
walls. These situations may
vary depending on the weath-
er throughout the year.
Certain materials may need to
be used to mitigate water
issues before finishing can take
place. The installation of
water-barrier systems, drain-
age, sump pumps, or encapsu-
lation products could drive up
the cost of a basement renova-
tion. It is essential to have a
professional assess the base-
ment water issues prior to
starting and finishing work.
DON’T simply cover up
potential hazards, such as
mold or mildew. Have them
treated instead. Otherwise,
you could have a breeding
ground behind drywall that
could lead to unsafe condi-
tions in the home.

DO have a radon test. Radon
is a hidden killer that can
cause lung cancer. Because it
occurs naturally in the soil
and water surrounding a home
and is impossible to detect
without a specialized test,
many people are unaware of
the presence of radon until it
is too late. Radon may be
more concentrated in the
basement, where the founda-
tion is touching the soil.
Therefore, rule out radon
before considering renovation
of a basement area.
DON’T limit furniture choices
to one type. You may need to
be flexible in your furniture
choices, even selecting modu-
lar pieces, like sectionals,
because entryways to base-

adding furniture more chal-
lenging.
DO keep the possibility of
flooding in the back of your
head. Homes that are near
waterways or at low elevation
may be at risk of flooding.
Basements are especially sus-
ceptible to flood damage.
Therefore, think about the
practicality of finishing a base-
ment if you are prone to flood-
ing. If you decide to move
ahead, take certain precau-
tionary measures, such as
keeping electrical wiring up

F
ebruary, when Valen-
tine’s Day serves as the
official day of love and
affection, is a great to embark
on a romantic vacation, espe-
cially if that getaway is to a
warmer locale that can help
men and women momentari-
ly forget about the snow-
storms and colder tempera-
tures back home.
Some resorts and travel-
based businesses take advan-
tage of Valentine’s Day by
inflating prices to capitalize
on gift-giving. However,
many others use this time of
year to offer specialized sales
and discounts to help boost
business through the remain-
der of the winter season. It is
possible to enjoy an indul-
gent trip without having to
spend a fortune.
•Consider cruising. There
are cruises that depart from
various ports all year long.
All it takes is a call to a cruise
line or logging on to their
Web sites to check the sched-
uling. For those unopposed to
flying to a different port, you
may be able to broaden your
options with regard to cruise
destinations and departing
dates. Cruises are advanta-
geous because they are
all-inclusive, self-contained
vacations. Couples who don’t
want the hassle of packing
and unpacking several times
and want their meals and
entertainment planned out
ahead of time might find
cruising is their trip. There
also is the ability to visit dif-
ferent ports of call all in one
trip, ensuring there is never a
dull moment.
•Look into winery packages.
Wineries may be doing their
planting and harvesting in
the warmer weather, but
come the winter they may be
facing a slow-down in foot
traffic and may be eager to
attract business. Sampling
different vintages and spend-
ing time in an often adults-
only environment can be an
ideal way to spend a
Valentine’s Day weekend.
Make it an overnight trip and
stay nearby in a hotel. Some
wineries may offer a restau-
rant on premises or work with
a local establishment to pro-
vide package deals.
•Visit your closest city. Many
people living in the suburbs
seldom make trips into down-
town unless they are regular
commuters for work. Even
those who spend their week-
days in an urban area may
never have experienced all of
the little gems that attract
tourists. For Valentine’s Day,
you may want to see your
urban center through the
eyes of a visitor, taking
advantage of the museums,
cultural centers and buildings
that attract tourists through-
out the year. Chances are the
trip will not be costly, and
you’ll be close to home.
•Take in live music. There’s
something romantic about
listening to music together.
Investigate upcoming con-
certs in your area. Some cof-
fee shops and bars host open-
mic nights when budding
artists can be heard. Check to
see if any smaller venues are
hosting intimate, acoustic
concerts by popular bands. It
can be a memorable night

T
he championship game
of the National Foot-
ball League, the Super
Bowl transcends geography
every year, roping in viewers
from across theglobe, making
the game one of television’s
most-watched events. For those
heading to the big game this
year or simply hosting their
own Super Bowl party, the fol-
lowing recipe for “Thomas’
Marinated Gamecocks with
Polenta” from Debbie Moose’s
“Fan Fare” (Harvard Common
Press) is perfectly suited for tail-
gate parties or get-togethers at
home.
Thomas’ Marinated Game-
cocks with Polenta
Serves 4
1
⁄4 cup honey
1
⁄4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh
ginger
1 tablespoon freshly ground
black pepper
1 cup water
2 Cornish game hens with
Polenta (at right)
1.Combine the honey, soy
sauce, garlic, ginger, pepper,
and water in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium-low heat,
stirring constantly, until com-
pletely blended. Allow to cool
to room temperature.
2.Use sharp kitchen shears to
cut the game hens in half
down the center of the back
and breast, and place in a large
zipper-top plastic bag. Pour in
the marinade, seal the bag and
refrigerate overnight.
3.When ready to cook, pre-
pare a medium-low fire in a
charcoal grill or preheat a gas
grill.
4.Remove the hens from the
marinade (discard the mari-
nade) and grill until the juices
run clear when the meat is
pierced with a sharp knife,
about 5 minutes per side.
Serve over the polenta.
Polenta
2 teaspoons butter or olive oil
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 cup finely ground cornmeal
1
1
⁄2 cups chicken broth
1
1
⁄2 cups water
1
⁄2 cup half-and-half
1
⁄4 cup grated Parmesan
cheese, or to taste
1 cup frozen green peas,
thawed
2 tablespoons julienned fresh
basil
Salt and freshly ground black
pepper to taste
1.Heat the butter in a large
pot over medium-high heat.
Add the red pepper flakes
and garlic. Reduce the heat
and cook until the garlic
becomes opaque, about 30
seconds. Add the cornmeal,
then whisk in the chicken
broth and water. Add salt
and pepper.
Bring the mixture to a
low boil, then reduce the
heat to low and simmer,
whisking occasionally, until
the mixture thickens, about
20 minutes.
2.Whisk in the half-and-half.
If the mixture is too thick,
add a bit more chicken broth
or water. Whisk in the
Parmesan, peas and basil.
Taste and add more salt and
pepper, if desired. Serve
warm.
Note: Those heading to the
game can prepare the mari-
nade and marinate the chick-
en the day before. However,
make the rest of the dish at
the tailgate.

M
any questions arise
during the home-
buying process.
Buyers looking at homes that
require a good deal of TLC
may wonder who is responsi-
ble for the home’s repairs,
particularly if such repairs are
needed to secure a certificate
of occupancy. Depending on
the situation, there is no
clear-cut answer.
There is no perfect
home, and things that are
acceptable to the current
owner may not be acceptable
to the buyer who is looking to
become the next owner. The
home-buying process is typi-
cally a careful cooperation
between buyer and seller to
find a middle ground. The
buyer may have to make some
concessions, as will the seller.
Ultimately, it is this coopera-
tion that often determines if
the sale goes through or is ter-
minated.
Before any negotiations
can begin regarding repairs, it
is advisable for a buyer to
have an independent inspec-
tor come out and look over
the home and property. Most
real estate agents will suggest
this be done as a first priority
— even before a contract is
entered on the home. An
inspection will unveil any
potential problems in a home
and indicate things that the
buyer may not be aware of,
including items that do not
meet with code or could be
unsafe. An inspector also may
point out problems that could
cause a mortgage lender to

Home buyers may be able to negotiate
that sellers repair major structural is-

negotiate a lower sale price.

dence society,” draining
the fortune and futures
of hard-working, overtaxed
Americans, both young and
old, who struggle each day to
build a platform of financial
independence and might wind-
up saying, “Why didn’t I think
to remain single, not find a job
and live off the government for
the rest of my life?”
This is a viscous cycle to
say the least. The government
must put together a policy after
a reasonable amount of unem-
ployment time that states if
you’re physically able and you
don’t work, you won’t eat. It’s
as simple as that! The country
needs to replace or rebuild
roads, bridges and tunnels, so
there is plenty of work avail-
able. To the prospective tenant
who called on my house-for-
rent ad: Go to work, get mar-
ried and pay your own way, or
Virtually every dog that is
exposed to the virus will
become infected, and nearly
80 percent show clinical
signs of disease. Fortunately,
most affected dogs have the
mild form.
Whatever the cause may
be, mild or serious, a full
workup should be performed
by your veterinarian to make
sure your dog stays happy and
healthy.

give pause. This may mean the
lender will deem problems
unsafe and refuse to fund the
mortgage until repairs are made.
A copy of this inspection
report should be sent to the
home seller to review with his or
her attorney and real estate
agent. The buyer working with
his own real estate attorney and
agent can petition for certain
repairs to be made. Many sellers
will make such repairs to ensure
the purchase goes through, or
they will accept a lower purchase
price to compensate for the
needed repairs, which the buyer
will then make. Buyers might
want to hire a good real estate
attorney to write clauses into the
contract to protect their inter-
ests. This allows the buyer to for-
feit the sale and walk away from
the contract should an issue
arise.
The rules often change
when buying a home that is a
short sale or in foreclosure. A
home that is in distress is typical-
ly in this situation because the
current owners cannot afford to
pay their mortgage, and thusly,
are not able to afford repairs.
According to Think Glink, a
money-management Web site,
buyers may try to negotiate
repairs with the seller, but they
shouldn’t assume that sellers (or
lenders in the event of a bank-
owned home) are responsible for
the repairs. Generally speaking,
most short sales and foreclosures
are sold “as is” and may even
specify that repairs and require-
ments for the certificate of occu-
pancy are the buyer’s responsibil-
ity. A buyer also can ask to have
the home price reduced to cover
the repairs. But foreclosures are
often already deeply discounted.
Buyers should know that,
for a home that is not in foreclo-
sure, there are some repairs that
should ultimately be the respon-
sibility of the seller. If these
repairs are not made, a buyer
should think strongly about
walking away from the deal,
according to Why6Percent.com,
a real estate marketing site. Such
repairs include:
•lender-required repairs that
could impact home safety
•leaky pipes
•water penetration issues, in-
cluding a bad roof
•unsafe decking or handrails
•wet basements or crawl spaces
•insecure foundations or obvi-
ous structural damage
•poorly functioning sewer lines
or septic system
It is always advisable for
buyers to speak with a reliable
real estate attorney and a trusted
real estate agent to guide them
through the process of buying a
home. These people can help
buyers navigate the important
decisions that can affect the
home they’ll be living in for the
next several years.
Who is responsible for repairs during a home sale?
and one that doesn’t break the
bank.
•Trade time-share dates with
others. Time shares are great
ways to have a dedicated vaca-
tion spot that you are guaranteed
during a certain time each year.
There are time-share swapping
sites like TimeShareJuice.com.
Find out if you can exchange
your requisite time with another
and take your vacation in honor
of Valentine’s Day.
•Consider a private rental situa-
tion. Many people who own
vacation homes list them for
rent when they are unoccupied.
You may be able to stay in a larg-
er condo or space than a tradi-
tional hotel room for a smaller
cost than going to a hotel. If you
develop a rapport with a particu-
lar renter, you may have prefer-
ence of dates and can make visit-
ing a tropical island or another
retreat a yearly Valentine’s Day
adventure. Try VRBO.com to
find a rental property in your
desired location.
Going away for Valentine’s
Day need not be an expensive
venture. There are many ways to
save money and enjoy a much-
needed romantic escape.

T
ired of looking older than you feel? Fed up
with creams and “goops” that don't work?
Now there’s new help for sagging faces.
Imagine looking in the mirror and seeing yourself
10 or 15 years younger. That’s what a facelift or
K-lift

can do for you. And it’s not just for movie
stars or models anymore. New procedures and
techniques make facelifts more affordable and
virtually undetectable for the “rest of us.”
So do your homework. Research carefully. And
get all the information you can. The best way to
start is to get a free report entitled “The Secrets of
Ageless Skin,” a detailed account of procedures that
rejuvenate the face. You’ll enjoy reading about
Dr. Kassir’s patients and how much cosmetic
procedures did for them. You’ll also find out if the
nonsurgical K-lift

or some form of facelift is right
for you. For a free copy of this informative report,
call (973) 692-9300 or email info@drkassir.com
anytime, 24 hours a day to find out how to turn
back the clock a decade or more.
