goal, which is to become a cornerstone for families throughout the community, and act as a foundation where individuals can create a better life. While the Morristown Neighborhood House has become part of the FSMC, it will continue to operate as a subsidiary of Cornerstone Family Programs. In addition, the organization can keep its original name. The group will continue to run and operate its existing programs, while new ones are being planned for future use. Despite the change, the organization's mission has largely remained the same. The goal is to provide programs that include counseling, education, support, and advocacy to families, seniors, and over 7,000 children. One way to achieve this goal, states the organization, is to focus on prevention and early prevention in four key areas. Strategy is a key part of meeting goals, and it begins with providing the best possible start in life for all children. To do this, it is necessary to have programs that emphasize building social and emotional wellbeing. Parenting, childhood education, and resources for families are included in this category. Another strategic area that the organization is aiming for is to allow older adults to live independently in their own homes. This step may involve social day centers, breaks for caregivers, case management inside the home, and programs that are designed for the blind. A third goal is to help build and maintain healthy families by providing ways to cope with short term stresses and manage long term goals. Areas included in this step are parenting concerns, stress, anxiety, and marital issues. The final step is to prevent substance abuse throughout the community.

By Kate Halse or many years, the Morristown Neighborhood House and the Family Service of Morris County (FSMC) have worked separately to help strengthen the community. While the Morristown Neighborhood House focuses on providing assistance to immigrant families within the community by making their transition easier, the FSMC strives to encourage individuals and families to take on and overcome life challenges. These two groups recently joined together, and the Morristown Neighborhood House is now part of the FSMC. A combination of these two groups has not been the only major change this year. After having the same name for the last 200 years, FSMC made the decision to select a new name. The goal was to pick a name that would best reflect the existing organization, along with the addition of the Morristown Neighborhood House. The end result was the Cornerstone Family Programs, a name that captures the essence of the community and the organization's spirit. An organization's name is one of its main components, and Cornerstone Family Programs name was carefully selected. This name is designed to reflect the underlying

With these goals in mind, and the newly acquired skills and plans of the Morristown Neighborhood House, Cornerstone Family Programs has started off on a positive note. A combination of missions from the two organizations, along with the services they offer, will allow the group to respond effectively and promptly to concerns within the community.

By Kate Halse n late July, the Morris County Jaycees aim to hold a fundraiser for "Nothing But Nets." The event will take place on July 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Famished Frog restaurant on Washington Street in Morristown. The Nothing But Nets Campaign is a global grassroots campaign with the goal of raising awareness and the necessary funding to help fight against malaria. For many African children, malaria is a serious threat, killing thousands of children each year. In addition to working with local groups such as the Jaycees, the campaign has also provided opportunities to organizations, students, CEOs, and others to reach out and make a difference in the lives of children who need it most. Some of the partners that the campaign has worked with in the past include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, VH1, the National Basketball Association's NBA Cares, The People of The United Methodist Church, Boy Scouts of America, Junior Chamber International, Orkin, Inc., and more. Residents of Morristown and the surrounding area can take part in the second annual rock, paper, and scissors competition at the fundraiser. The top three competitors will each win a prize that is valued at more than $300. Plenty of laughter and serious game faces are to be expected at the event. Tiffany Reddin, president and founder of the Morris County Chapter, says that while the group is based locally, they are also interested in international events. Reddin says, "We are excited to take place in a global project" that will have a lasting

impact and will ultimately help to save the lives of millions of children. In addition to their global projects, the Morris County Jaycees also give young adults a chance to develop both personal and leadership skills by getting involved in the local community. The organization consists of young individuals ages 18 to 40 who give back to their community and help to make a difference through their volunteer efforts. Part of the group's mission is to figure out what each community needs, and to provide services through planning and executing various community service missions. Through these projects, each member receives valuable hands-on experience. This experience not only helps individuals feel more involved in the surrounding community, but it also leads to personal growth and the development of valuable social and leadership skills. Additionally, members are rewarded with an inviting and professional way to get involved with community affairs, while developing lasting friendships and business opportunities along the way. The global span of the organization also encourages networking throughout the state, country, and the world. While the organization has many local branches, it is also part of a larger worldwide federation of young professionals and entrepreneurs. Currently, there are approximately 200,000 young professionals and entrepreneurs involved in the organization who are between 18 and 40 years old. In addition, the organization has a total of 8,000 active territories, which spans a total of 123 nations.

1908 Mansion of the Gilded Age

f you ask most people why Morristown, NJ is famous, most would answer because of George Washington and the American Revolution. However, from 1890 to 1929 Morristown was the core of the richest and least known area of wealthy people in the world. This era was known as the Gilded Age. Many of these magnificent homes remain today! One I am specifically proud to present is 58 Canfield Road in Convent Station. This 1908, 17 room mansion has 3 levels, a large welcoming foyer, open 3 story staircase, 6 fireplaces, a library and 7 bedrooms. This is truly a home with the grandeur of the past with all

the amenities of today including, new electric, new central air conditioning, and an inground heated pool set on 1.8 acres of beautiful property. An added bonus is a 2 bedroom carriage house, ready for guests or for a rental. This home is convenient to all Morristown has to offer including restaurants, theater and transportation and you can walk to the Convent train.

Thomas Edison The Famous Camper Has A Junior Ranger Badge For Todays National Park Adventurers
they were young children and finally find the opportunity to add the park site badges they missed as a child. You are never too old to be a Junior Ranger. Today joining a Junior Ranger program is so much easier to enroll in and obtain the learning material needed for your Junior Ranger Badge. There is a dedicated website for each Park. Youngster can get a head start on the Junior Ranger experience or extend it after visiting the park site. This summer may be a great time to get started in a recreational childhood memory you can carry over into adulthood by becoming a Junior Ranger. To obtain the park badge there is a set of Junior Ranger workbook activities for children from ages 5 and up to complete to attain their badge. After they successfully completed their list of activities they must take an oath that they promise to share their knowledge with others and enjoy and protect all National Parks. This recognition certificate is signed by a Park Ranger and presented to them along with their badge. If visiting our National Parks is on your family to do list, start your national recreational excursion right here in the Garden State with the Thomas Alva Edison sites in West Orange, NJ. This NPS site has a Junior Ranger activity booklet that states to: Work like Mr. Edison and his assistant muckers (engineer and lab techs) that worked through project problems. Mr. Edison believed problems are best solved when a good experimenter (you) and few workers combine their talents to finish the project. Here is the site location for more program details

by Michele Guttenberger rom his early years as a struggling businessman, through his golden years as a living legend, Thomas Edison had a love of nature that beckoned him to the great outdoors. His camping buddies were Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and famous naturalist John Burroughs. They named their group the Vagabonds and Burroughs noted in his 1924 diary that the group "cheerfully endure wet, cold, smoke, mosquitoes, black flies, and sleepless nights, just to touch naked reality once more." There would be a series of legendary camping trips covered by the press journeying throughout America that started with their first Everglades camping expedition of 1914. Famous people and presidents would join in as guests to their campsite such as President Warren G. Harding and President Coolidge. We can only wonder what Edison would have thought about this his lab and home in West Orange, NJ being a National Historic Park site. Would he think it is a hoot that a kid can earn his/her Junior Ranger badge and patch with his name on it? The Edison lab is a very unique National Historic Park site because the attraction is not the typical natural lakes, rivers, trails and forests but, a late 19th century factory lab buildings and an estate home. Even though it is a manmade wonder, it still receives its own Junior Ranger park badge and patch. Those who enrolled in the National Park Service Junior Ranger program are happy to learn New Jersey has 12 National Park sites.

Children and Their Parents Share A Healthier Way to Eat at School Lunch Farm
considerable pre-season costs incurred by the farmer, including purchases of seeds and equipment. The CSA model is based on a shared commitment to a local, equitable farm system that encourages owners of small farms to be good stewards of the land and at the same time helps them to be productive and profitable. This year, School Lunch Farm also has a stand at the Branchburg Farmers Market, and is supplying produce to Arturos Restaurant in Maplewood. Noon bought her land a little more than a year ago at auction, and is in her second season at the farm. While she works towards organic certification, she uses organic practices -- no chemical fertilizers or pesticides -- to grow a wide variety of vegetables that includes all types of greens, squashes, root vegetables, lettuces, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and annual and perennial herbs, among many other vegetable crops. We plant almost every vegetable you can grow in northern New Jersey, she said. The number of shares sold has increased 50 percent from last year, and there are still weekly shares available. Im growing enough food for 100 families, said Noon.

By Julia Lawlor here are plenty of perfect summer days at Margaret Noons School Lunch Farm this season, with the sun beaming down on rows of heirloom vegetables, a cool breeze blowing, and a full crew of interns and volunteers helping with the planting, harvesting, and weeding of her 70acre spread in Mt. Olive. But what is most heartening for Noon -who came to farming after more than 20 years in advertising -- is the way the community has embraced her. There have been days when, short an employee or faced with a deadline shes not sure she can make -help simply appears. This summer one of my interns read a help-wanted ad Id placed two months earlier and called me, Noon said. He dropped from the heavens. I find when I need help, it shows up. School Lunch Farm operates through a system called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), in which customers buy shares in advance and receive bags full of vegetables weekly throughout the growing season (with the option of a weekly additional egg share and monthly grass-fed beef shares). The upfront payments offset the

CSA members receive their first share of the season.

This year she plans to donate extras to a food pantry in Mt. Olive and a soup kitchen in Plainfield. Noon, 53 and single, is part of a growing trend in U.S. agriculture: the number of female-operated farms more than doubled

between 1982 and 2007, according to the U.S. Department of Agricultures Economic Research Service, to 306,000. In 2007, women were the principal operators of 14 percent of the nations 2.2 million farms, a continued on next page

continued from previous page jump of almost 30 percent from 2002. While School Lunch Farm might look like many small farms scattered throughout rural areas of the Garden State, there is an important difference: Noon apprenticed at a

Margaret in a buckwheat field, a green manure grown to improve the farm's soil

biodynamic farm in northern New Jersey for two years, and has carried those practices onto her own land. She is dedicated to building healthy soil and enhancing biodiversity, two practices that have suffered in the era of industrial farming.

Noon has also made School Lunch Farm a focus of her involvement in the international organization Slow Food, which advocates for good, clean, fair food raised on small, local farms using sustainable methods. She is leader of the northern NJ chapter of Slow Food, which in the last five years has awarded grants to start vegetable gardens at 25 schools in New Jersey. She often invites school groups out to the farm, where children can learn about farming and taste freshly harvested vegetables. When she first started farming in Mt. Olive, she had no expectations that help was just down the road. Shes been pleasantly surprised. A lot of people have been really helpful, she said. Many neighbors told her stories about the history of her land. A few have gone to work rebuilding her tractor implements and tools. The family that originally owned and farmed this property still has relatives in the area, and they want to help me bring the farm back to its full potential and beauty, she said. Noons vision for the future is two-fold: As the name of the farm implies, she eventually wants to supply vegetables to school cafeterias, so that children can be exposed to healthy, minimally processed meals. She also dreams of creating a lasting community on her farm, perhaps by having young farmers use some of her land for other agri-

cultural pursuits. I have one CSA member who wants to raise alpacas, she said, and another who wants to have goats. Already, her farm is a gathering place for friends, family and shareholders. Last year, about a dozen volunteers helped erect a greenhouse on the property, struggling to secure huge sheets of plastic over a metal frame as they billowed in the wind. Their reward: a potluck lunch, and armfuls of just-harvested mint to take home. Recently, she held a pick-your-own weekend for shareholders who came out in force, little kids in tow, to pick sugar snap and snow peas. On days when it seems the work will never be done, Noon thinks back to those moments. This farm, she said. Is the best thing that ever happened to me. Shares of School Lunch Farm cost $700 (or less than $35 a week), and provide sustainably-grown vegetables every week for 20 weeks, July through Thanksgiving (those who join later will have their cost prorated). There are also options for weekly shares of local eggs and monthly deliveries of local grass-fed organic beef. If youd like to buy a share or volunteer at the farm, contact Noon at; or phone 908-451-0051. To learn more about the farm, go to

By Cheryl Conway ar enthusiasts get a first hand look at the latest in car features at the recent car show in Hackettstown. Close to 1,000 people came out to the Route 46 Chevrolet 1st Annual Car Show and Grand Opening on Sunday, June 9. There were 110 entries of classic cars displayed and all registration fees went to select local charities. It was huge, says Adam Barish of Kinnelon, co-owner of Route 46 Chevrolet since Aug. 2012. We maxed out the entire parking lot. The event was free to spectators, but car owners had to pay $12 to $15 for their car entries. Cops and Rodders Car Club in Hackettstown co-hosted the car show by helping Route 46 Chevrolet organize and advertise the event. It was perfect weather, says Barish. It was a great way to get out to look at cars of the forties, fifties and sixties. One car was nicer than the next. Barish decided to host the car show to get our name out there, he says. We want to be part of the community. He also wanted to benefit local charities. More than $2,000 was raised. Monies went to Two Kids Foundation- a non profit organization that raises money to help children that have been diagnosed with cancer and other serious health disorders and diseases; Johns Journey- a campaign to raise awareness of a motor neurone disease; and Pink Ladies- a group of young girls who raise money for Smiles For Margaret by selling lemonade. The Budd Lake Fire Department sold 50 50s and the Pink Ladies sold 10 gallons of lemonade that day. A DJ was on site playing great music, remote control cars were driven on a track, Piggys Deli in Hackettstown catered food. At the event, a Power Wheels Car worth $500 was raffled off, along with an electric Power Wheels

Car Show Steers In Many, Raises Money For Drives

Camero. Out of the 110 entries, 30 of the top vehicles were given trophies in categories such as best paint, best engine, and best overall. The Dealers Choice Trophy Winner went to a 67 Vette Sting Ray owned by Norman Dotti. It was a totally restored vehicle with original parts and attention to detail, describes Barish. At the show was featured the 2014 Impala which had just came out two weeks before the car show. With 325 horse power, V6 engine, the latest technology for anti-collision, the new Impala is worlds away from the old Impala, says Barish. Priced anywhere from $28,000 to $40,000, the four door 2014 Impala features adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicator, cavernous trunk , blue tooth integration, available navigation, heated and cooled seats. You just have to drive it to believe it, says Barish. It competes with the three series BMW or C Class Mercedez. The finish, the ride, the handling- this is one big flagship automobile. This car is going to be huge. Car enthusiasts at the car show were able to compare cars from back in the day to the latest and greatest. Some of the cars at the car show go back before seatbelts, says Barish. Compare that to this Impala10 airbags plus collision warning system which will warn you before you hit the brakes, blind system, lane warning if you veer outside the line it gives you a beep beep, beep,

sensors for parking, back-up cameras, entertainment systems. U can stream line Pandora Radio. It knows traffic and will say traffic five miles ahead. Within one year, Chevrolet has On Star in everything, says Barish, giving the driver accident notification, directions to local restaurants. Route 46 Chevrolet plans to host another car show on Oct. 26 to benefit the Morris County Police Chiefs Association. This was the first car show under the new ownership, says Dave Shapiro, general manager who worked as a parts manager when the dealership was known as Kevil Chevrolet. Barish and his sister, Jessica- who also own Route 23 Honda in Pompton Plains - bought the business- formerly called Kevil Chevrolet- last year after the former owner Mike Kevil died after owning the dealership since 1984. Raised by car dealer owners, Barish grew up in the car business since he was five years old. His parents were Pontiac Dealers and owned Regal Pontiac in West Caldwell from 1968 until 1974, when they switched to becoming Honda Dealers. They owned Fairfield Honda in 1974, which moved in 1983 to Route 23 Honda in Pompton Plains. It was fantastic, says Shapiro, perfect weather. We raised money for a great cause. Route 46 Chevy is doing everything to get involved in the community. Its a local business. Were looking to give back to the community. We feel its very important.
