Wings of Freedom Tour Makes Stop in Morristown

By Kate Halse arly in September, Morris County residents were treated to a display of vintage World War II planes at the Morristown Municipal Airport. The event, which began on September 2, ran through Friday, September 6. The display was part of The Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom Tour, which featured the World War II Vintage Boeing B17 Flying Fortress, the Consolidated B-24 Liberator, and a North American P-51 Mustang. Airplane enthusiasts and history buffs had an opportunity to visit the display, explore the exhibits, and learn more about the historic aircraft and their roles in history. The Vintage Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is just one of eight planes of its kind throughout the country that are in flying condition. Both the B-24 Liberator and the North American P51 Mustang are the only remaining planes of their kind in the world that are flying. The event was open to adults and children alike,

all of whom were able to get an up-close viewing of the aircraft, as well as tours through the inside of each plane. World War II veterans were able to take a tour of the airplanes for free. Throughout the event, visitors were given the chance to take a 30-minute flight aboard these historic airplanes. Flights were available on either the B17 or B-24 and were $425 per person. Visitors who wanted to take a ride on the P-51 Fighter paid $2,200 for a half hour or $3,200 for a full hour. The 30minute flights are typically

given before and after the ground tours. Ground tours were available for visitors for the majority of the day on September 5 and for half the day on September 6. The goal of the Collings Foundation is to help organize and support events that demonstrate a living history so that citizens can learn more about history through direct participation. Originally, the group focused on events that were related to transportation, such as antique car rides, hill climbs, and carriage and sleigh rides.

However, the focus was expanded to include aviation in the 1980s. Through this expansion, the foundation was able to include events such as air shows, historical reunions, Vietnam Memorial Flights, and the Wings of Freedom Tour. In the 20 years that it has been focused on aviation, the foundation has amassed an impressive collection of historic aircraft. Many of these airplanes have been recovered and carefully restored. The majority of these airplanes continued on page 8

Morristown Receives Long-awaited FEMA Aid

The majority of the money that has been distributed will be used towards reimbursement for debris removal and various safety measures, as noted by the OEM accounting of public assistance payments. Additional OEM figures will be used to cover payments to municipalities along with a variety of public entities. Some private companies may also be eligible beginning on July 30. Officials from the OEM noted that the numbers were actual dollars that had been received by municipalities to help cover emergency costs. These numbers were not the result of requests that had been made or of applications that were still in the works. Money has been dispersed to affected businesses and residents in Morristown. In total, the town has received at least $47,000 in aid and the Morris Museum has received nearly $8,000. Aside from Morristown, other towns throughout the state have finally begun to receive assistance as well. One such town is Allendale, which was notified in the middle of August that it would be receiving reimbursements and aid. Some of the reimbursements include overtime costs, restoration fees, and cleanup efforts. The town also had a lucky break when Councilwoman Liz White received news that the town would be reimbursed for up to 90 percent of its expenses, rather than the usual 75 percent. White noted that the town has already received around $80,000 in aid from FEMA, with more money on the way. When asked just how much money the town was expending, White responded by saying that they could receive up to $150,000 in reimbursement costs. New Brunswick was also part of the $51 million package in aid for towns that were affected by the hurricane. As with many towns, most of New Brunswicks own funds went towards cleanup efforts. In turn, the

By Kate Halse early one year has passed since the historic Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey and the surrounding areas. Although flooding was expected to be the primary issue, wind damage is what hit the area the hardest. Since then, towns have continued to clean up damaged areas and try to recoup financial losses from the storm. Many New Jersey residents were unprepared for the wrath of the storm, which came just a year after a freak Noreaster storm piled as much as 19 inches of snow onto some parts of the state. However, officials agreed that the damage from Hurricane Sandy was more devastating overall. Although trees were cleared and wires were replaced long ago, some Morristown residents are still working to recover damage that was done to their homes and properties, and the town is trying to recover financially. Fortunately, aid from the government has begun to trickle in. In late August of this year, the state Office of Emergency Management (OEM) noted that Morristown had received a portion of the $51 billion package that was approved by congress. The state office has been helping to distribute Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding for those around the state who were affected by the storm.

majority of municipalities disbursements have helped to offset the costs of debris removal. As of July 30, 2013, New Brunswick has received numerous payments. Over $70,000 has gone to the Board of Education, while nearly $41,000 has been distributed to the New Brunswick Parking Authority. A full report of payments that have been received in towns throughout New Jersey can be found at: http://www.ready.nj.govplan/pdf/073013_dr4086_paysummary.pdf

Moe Distributers Celebrates 30 Years

Thompson, celebrate 30 years of proprietorship at the end of September. The festivities begin with a two-day customer appreciation sale, Friday, September 27th 9am to 5pm and Saturday, September 28th 9am to 2pm. Thirty years ago this month, the partners purchased the store from the original Moe. They tossed most of what they had at the time into the investment and three decades later, they have shown that it was well worth it, as they have tripled the stores footprint, filled it with a team of knowledgeable, attentive salespeople, and created a beautiful, modern showroom. Moe Distributors celebrated its original grand opening in June of 1965 under the ownership of Moe Kessler. At that time, the small building, where the store still stands today, simply housed a modest office with a client window where Moe sold hardware and building materials to professionals and homeowners. Despite some changes and renovations over the years, the store is proud to retain its small-business atmos-

Take a guided walk on the wooded trails to discover how the Lenape used local plants, or explore the interior of the wigwam, set up as it would have been hundreds of years ago. For thousands of years before the pioneers arrived in New Jersey, the Lenape Indians lived in these forests, hunting deer

Jewish Environmentalism Series to Begin in October

begin at around 12 noon on Wednesday, October 9. Session two will start on October 16 at 11:30 am. The third session will start on October 23 around 11:30 am. The series is free and open to the public, and will be sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), West Morris Section's Our Jewish World. Melanie Levitan and Ellen Nesson, both of Morristown, are leading the council. The goal of the three-part series is to introduce the major ideas and practices of Jewish environmentalism. "Ten Teachings on Jewish Environmentalism" is the first session, which will focus on Jewish environmentalism and the ideas, practices, and major sources behind it. A variety of topics will be covered in the session, such as an individual's relation to creation, Jewish sustainability, biodiversity, environmental justice and tikkun olam, a Hebrew phrase for "repairing the world." In session two, "Mekor Hayyim (Source of Life): The Meaning of Water in Judaism," will focus on environmental issues from a Jewish perspective. One of the issues begins with the fact that the amount of fresh drinking water is decreasing due to factors such as population growth, climate change and pollution. Another issue is that simply having access to water is quickly becoming one of this century's major world security problems. Session three is "Beyond the Letter of the Law: Jewish Ethical Action and Investing in Light of Climate Change." This session will investigate problems such as whether individuals should invest in energy companies that work to promote the consumption of fossil fuels, which are one of the primary sources of climate change. Then the session will tackle issues such as who is morally responsible for the actions of the companies that are part of one's portfolio when investing in stocks or mutual funds? To find the answers, relevant classic and modern sources will be looked at. Rabbi Troster brings to the program an impressive resume and plenty of relevant experience. He is currently a member of Al Gore's Climate Reality Project Leadership Corps. In addition, he held the position of Rabbinical Fellow for the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life. Rabbi Troster has also published a variety of articles and routinely lectures for large audiences. Topics have ranged from eco-theology, bio-ethics, Judaism, and modern cosmology. "Mekor Hayyim: A Source Book on Water and Judaism" is one of Rabbie Troster's most recent publications. He is also an accomplished public speaker and has been a keynote speaker at an array of conferences. If you are interested in participating, you can register for his series by emailing: ellen.nesson@gmail. com.

three-part series regarding Jewish environmental spirituality and practice will take place at the Morris County Library in Whippany starting in October. Rabbi Lawrence Troster, a religious environmental leader and Jewish eco-theologian, will be conducting the series at the library, which is located across from the Frelinghuysen Arboretum. Rabbi Troster currently works as the rabbinical scholar-in-residence at GreenFaith. This organization is the interfaith environmental coalition in the state of New Jersey. Additionally, Rabbi Troster was the former creator and director of the GreenFaith's fellowship program. The first session will

Free Drug and Alcohol Family Education and Support Sessions

ior. Because many drug abusers deny they have a problem, they will not seek help on their own. Therefore, knowledgeable family members, friends or co-workers may need to assist the user to seek treatment. This session is designed to assist in making difficult decisions. November 17: The session will focus on specific drugs of abuse with an emphasis upon prescription medications and the growing use of heroin. The non-medical use or abuse of prescription drugs is a serious and growing public health problem. Prescription drugs in the opiate family, such as Vicodin (hydrocodone) and oxycontin, are often prescribed for chronic pain or recovery from surgery. Benzodiazepines, such as Valium or Xanax, are prescribed to treat anxiety. Most people take prescription medications responsibly; however, an estimated 48 million people (ages 12 and older) have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons in their lifetimes. This represents approximately 20 percent of the U.S. population. Addiction to prescription opiates often leads many to the use of heroin. December 15: The final fall series session will focus upon relapse prevention and having a relapse plan. This last session will be an open discussion and summary of the series. The schedule and more information is available at or by calling 973-540-0116. If you have a friend or family member with a drug or alcohol problem who is struggling, you may want to attend these sessions.

5 Normandy Heights Road ~ Location, Elegance, & History In 1884, the Normandy Park Historic District was opened as a thoroughfare connecting Washington Avenue and Columbia Turnpike. John Canfield Dodd was the President of the Morristown Land and Improvement Co., and the designer of this project. Dodd also built Eleven Oaks, the districts first estate which still stands today. Unlike the Madison Avenue mansions of the day, the Normandy District had a more neighborhood feel. The homes that were built sat on large lots and were set back 200 feet from the road. To add to the ambience, gas lights illuminated the street. They are also still part of the area. Our landmark communities and districts are what make it historic and special. The entire area prides itself in preserving the past while bringing all the conveniences of todays lifestyles to

the area. Located in the midst of the Normandy Historic District is the Morris Museum. Originally, it was Twin Oaks, former Frelinghuysen Estate.

Morris County Tourism Bureau Celebrates Its 15th Year

with a small staff of one, Leslie Bensley the current executive director. Over the years the staff and its responsibilities have grown. The office has biennially produced the official Morris County Visitors Guide and the latest version is due out this fall. It will be a Special Edition in honor of two events of historic proportion: the 2014 Super Bowl set to be played on February 2nd in MetLife Stadium and a celebration of New Jerseys 350th anniversary (New Jersey was settled in 1664). The NFL has estimated that the economic benefit to the metropolitan area due to the Super Bowl will reach $500 million dollars and bring an estimated 400,000 visitors to the area. The Tourism Bureaus role is twofold: to provide an overall positive experience for visitors to our area and to ensure that Morris County residents feel a part of the Super Bowl excitement. In partnership with Tourism Bureau members, there will be special events planned during football season and leading up to the big game. One activity that the Tourism Bureau will sponsor is a sand sculptor creating a football-themed creation at this years Morristown Festival on the Green on Sunday, September 29th from noon to 5 p.m. at the corner of Schuyler Place and Washington Street. There will be a football themed basket raffle held for festival visitors. Look for other events being held throughout the county in the run-up to the Super Bowl by going to the Tourism Bureaus web site: The Tourism Bureau maintains an up-tothe-minute calendar of events on its web site for use by anyone looking for things to do. Additionally, they send an e-blast to subscribers every two weeks with the top suggestions for activities in the area. The Tourism Bureau also offers original historical walking tours in the summer and fall and participates in such events as Revolutionary Times, the Saint Patricks Day parade and Holly Days. Couples planning to marry, meeting planners and realtors stop in to pick up information like maps, calendars, magazines and information that assists with relocation to the area. Have you seen the new signs around Morristown that direct pedestrian and vehicular traffic to local attractions such as Morristown National Historical Park, the Morris Museum, Acorn Hall and Frelinghuysen Arboretum? The signs are part of a pilot program, an initiative of the Morris County Tourism Bureau and the Morris County Park Commission, to help improve the overall visitor experience to our area.

his fall Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is pleased to announce our new Homeschool program series "Bricks and Beams: Building New Jersey." Homeschool families can explore the built environment using 19th century Macculloch Hall and Morristown's original Historic District as the focus. In this three-part series, students will discover why buildings look the way they do and ask, "Can a building be a work of art?" With our architectural "tool kits", students learn how to identify basic building elements: material, form, color, and ornament, and how the past influences the present. Each session includes mini-building team exercises which lead to a larger, final building challenge. Students will see firsthand how math+science+art=architecture and how this is reflected in the world we have built. The programs meets for the first time on September 24th for "First Impressions: Studying Architectural Styles," then on October 22nd for "Stepping Through History: A Walking Tour," and on November 26th for "Time To Build: The Sky is the Limit." Each program is offered as a morning session from 10 a.m. to noon, or an afternoon session from 1 to 3 p.m. Pre-registration is required.

Thomas Edison Claimed Deafness Was A Learning Asset In Childhood And Throughout His Life
his railroad station access to the only headline news medium the newspapers. It was these stations that had the pulse on transmitting the news. Newspaper companies printed the news provided by the telegraph communications stations that transmitted battle report messages from telegraph wires across the railroad lines. Here Edison states ..I had a chance to learn that money can be made out of little careful thought and, being poor, I already knew that money is a valuable thing. Boys who dont know that are under a disadvantage greater than deafness. ..I was already very deaf. In my isolation (insulation would be a better term) I had time to think things out. I decided that if I could send ahead to outlaying stations a hint of the big war news which I, there in Detroit, had learned was coming, I could do better than normal business when I reached them. Young Edison convinced the Detroit Free Press to supply him the justoff- the -press newspapers on a promise he would sell them all. Then, Edison had station agents who were also the telegraphers give advance notice to the passengers that a big headline news story was in the newspaper when they arrived at their next station. Edison claimed When I got to the first station on the run I found the device had worked beyond my expectations. The platform literally was crowded with men and women anxious to buy newspapers. Thomas Edison gave further praise of his deafness to Edward Marshall I have no doubt that my nerves are stronger and better today than they would have been if I had heard all the foolish conversation and other meaningless sounds that normal people hear. The things that I have needed to hear I have heard. ..Most nerve strain of our modern life, I fancy, comes to us through our ears. Edison claimed it was his deafness that helped make improvements to the sound quality of Bells telephone and helped him to improve on his own phonograph inventions. He claims his deafness made him acutely aware of the noise in sound. He depended on the purity of sound to hear it. His deafness helped isolate the noise and he set off to banish the clatter he found - both the audible and proverbial kind. In Edison words People with good hearing have become so accustomed to the uproar of civilization that the uproar has become neces-

by Michele Guttenberger hen we think of Thomas Edison, we never think of him as an inventor challenged with physical disabilities. Edison was deaf most of this life. Edisons hearing loss was a culmination of contracting childhood scarlet fever and further hearing loss at the age of 12 years from a head trauma incident. Edison spent his entire adult life with almost total hearing loss. Thomas Edison gave a very personal interview about his deafness to journalist Edward Marshall for Hearsts International COSMOPOLITAN in April of 1925. He stated my deafness has not been a handicap but a help to me. Edison claimed his deafness aided his learning in his youth I read Burtons Anatomy of Melancholy - pretty heavy reading for a youngster. It might have been, if I hadnt been taught by my deafness that almost any book will supply entertainment or instruction. Thomas Edison spent his youth getting the typed Headline News before the rest of the country. He was the newspaper boy for the passengers of the Grand Trunk railroad during the Civil War.
