Allamuchy Firefighters Become Certified Ice Rescue Techs

n Saturday, March 29 Allamuchy Firefighters made their way onto the thinning ice of Allamuchy Pond to conduct their Ice Rescue Technician’s practical and become certified in Ice Rescue. The course was a 1 day lecture and 1 day practical where firefighters learned several techniques of rescuing a victim who has fallen through the ice. The course also instructs how to stabilize & package a victim who may be injured on the ice from an ice skating or snowmobiling incident. During the practical firefighters donned their ice rescue suits and made their way onto the ice to practice several rescue techniques.

Instructors of the class reviewed the ways of rescue and different scenarios one may encounter. Due to the warming tempera-

tures, the ice conditions were perfect to resemble a possible ‘real-life’ scenario – cracking and braking all around them.

Peter Huryk, a Hackettstown High School graduate and now a Spanish teacher at Belvidere High School, dishes out some great advice and does so with clarity. “Fill Your Boots” can help teens prepare to be their best in life, and, of course, also on the soccer field.

High school, he said, is tough enough, and added that, “I try to help out as much as I can.” His book is generally geared toward high school

Now that his words made it to print, he hopes that they get into the hands of someone they can help, he said. It is available at lulu.com for $9.95 and Amazon.com for the same price. Do a search for Fill Your Boots and you will find it. Huryk said that over the years, people have said to him from time to time that he should be a motivational speaker. In “Fill Your Boots,” he tackles many issues such as fear, gaining confidence, and taking responsibility. Though these topics may seem common, his remedies are intriguing and unique. For instance, he breaks fear “into two groups: real peril and social peril.” “Real peril is defined as danger that will cause bodily harm or even death. Social peril describes the situations when consequences are either put on you by someone

else or by your own self.” Huryk then gives suggestions on differentiating between the two and putting healthy expectations on situations you may encounter. Another chapter, “Horrible, Bad, Okay, Good, Excellent,” notes that “by keeping your expectations for improvement in small increments, you’ll find it much easier to attain each step. Imagine trying to jump from the bottom floor of a building up to the second or third floor. You’d never make it. Give yourself a set of stairs or a ladder and it seems almost effortless by comparison.” Huryk said the book sprang out of his desire to keep students motivated, and the ways in which he has done so from time to time. Ideas for the chapters in his book came from half-time speeches and pregame speeches. He started that book last July and finished it in December, after making the goal to just consistently put ideas on paper each night – 1,000 words of “ideas” to be specific. Now students can learn “setting goals, taking personal responsibility” as a result of his book. It can also serve as a self-esteem builder, because unfortunately, some kids view themselves as “not worthy,” Huryk said. Huryk said kids can, in fact, do things that are important and succeed more than they ever anticipated. Huryk notes that in Fill Your Boots, I described a fictitious set of boots that allowed you to see your final destination one set of boots at a time.” He notes that readers can, and should “replace them (boots) with bigger and more ambitious boots and do everything you can to fill them.” Huryk’s blog, hurykunlimted.wordpress.com, offers additional insights that are inspiring as well. His experiences and advice could serve us all very well indeed.

Throughout history, women have contributed to society in innumerable ways - from media to education, medicine to politics, and civil rights to the arts, and more.

Freeholders Designate April as “Alcohol Awareness Month”
certainly proud to sign and move forward with this.” “It is important to bring alcohol abuse and its effect on society to light,” Freeholder Jason J. Sarnoski said. “It’s not only about drunk driving, but the adverse effect alcohol has on young people.” Freeholder Richard D. Gardner said this is an ongoing battle and pointed to the “alarming yet not surprising” statistics, such as that alcohol will kill more young people than all other drugs combined. “All around us, there is no town, no city, no burg that really escapes the clutches of alcoholism, unfortunately… like the epidemic with prescription drugs which has gotten very severe in this country,” Gardner remarked. “I applaud the efforts of our local people who are so deeply involved in trying to help folks (deal with) alcohol abuse,” he added, Sarnoski urged everyone afflicted to seek treatment and to encourage others to do the same. “I think it’s incumbent on those who feel they have a problem or know somebody with a problem with alcohol to step up. Make them aware of the issue and urge them to seek treatment,” he said. Colleen Baylor accepted the proclamation on behalf of Local Advisory Committee on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (LACADA). She thanked the Board for its continued support, as it helps to increase public awareness and understanding. There is still a stigma associated with addiction, Baylor noted, but “Reducing underage drinking is critical to ensure a healthy future for Americans.” It requires “a cooperative effort from parents, schools, community organizations, government agencies and young people,” Baylor added.

owing to provide “Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow,” the Warren County Board of Chosen Freeholders proclaimed April as Alcohol Awareness Month. Noting that alcohol is the most commonly used addictive substance in the United States, the freeholders called upon all citizens and institutions in Warren County to support efforts to end underage drinking, and to increase awareness of alcohol use disorders and the success of prevention and treatment. The statistics on alcohol abuse are “very concerning,” Freeholder Director Edward J. Smith said, as they show the impact on society, families and employment. Referring to the Alcohol Awareness Month proclamation, he said, “It’s a noble cause and I’m

Last Supper Comes to Life
years, members of the church’s United Methodist Men’s group and their friends will take on the roles of Jesus and His disciples. For years, Bruce Bristol, of Landing, has played the disciple, John. “As John, I have been part of Jesus' inner circle, sharing his trials and victories. I have come to understand and convince many people that by believing in Jesus you will not perish, but have everlasting life. Come so that you can understand why we believe.” Rounding out the cast are local area residents: Angelo Benincasa (James the Lesser), Randy Schrader (Matthew), Jayson Daniels (Nathaniel), Steve Wootton (James), Jim Oscovitch (Andrew), Fred Eckert (Thomas), Scott LeFurge

by Elsie Walker hey were His friends, His trusted companions, His disciples. He had shared everything with them. In turn, they had come to realize that Jesus was something other than just a carpenter from Nazareth. He was much more, perhaps even the Messiah. However, that was all about to change and very quickly. The disciples had no idea that they were about to have their last supper with Him…or that even more shockingly, one of them would betray him into the hands of death The Last Supper will come to life on Thursday, April 17th at 7:30pm at the Stanhope United Methodist Church. All are invited to attend this free drama. The church is located at #2 Route 183 in Netcong. A tradition for many

that the communion is open to all who want to partake in it. Kinter also reflected on the drama: “When you sit and watch the Last Supper Drama, as each disciple comes into the room and takes his place at

the table, the words of the scriptures come off the page and become real. You are in the room with Jesus and his disciples, the breaking of the bread and the sharing of the cup become real.”

Fraida Shusterman, co-director of the Chabad of Northwest NJ in Flanders, has started a new program - Torah & Tea for Women - in honor of her dear friend, Rashi Minkowitz of Atlanta, Ga, who died suddenly at the age of 37 on Tues., March 11. Minkowitz was a beloved mother of eight young children, a wife, and co-leader of a Chabad in North Fulton, near Atlanta, Ga. Organized in Mt. Olive for a decade this year, the Chabad of Northwest NJ holds various events annually, such as High Holiday services, Hebrew school, and Torah portion services for men- but as far as studying Torah for women- this is a first. “I definitely wanted to start this,” says Shusterman. “I didn’t have a Torah class for women. We did baking in the past, maybe because it was more exciting. Now, with Rashi gone, I felt I have to do something for her.” With a larger family of her own, Shusterman admits, “it’s not so easy, but I said ‘I have to do this.’ My primary focus is my family. I was never pushed” into having a class for women, “But this was something so tragic. She was in my age group. I have to make this world a better place; you don’t think twice, I said ‘I’m going to try. I’m going to learn Torah for

Chabad Leader Hosts Torah Sessions For Women
Rashi.’ I feel privileged I can do this. I feel it’s an honor to do something in her memory.” Shusterman started Torah & Tea on Monday, March 24, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., inviting about 30 women in the community to join her to study that week’s Torah portion. The idea of her program coincides with a Torah & Tea program that her friend Rashi led every week for women in her own community. Twenty years ago is when Shusterman met Rashi as they spent two years together as classmates at Bais Chaya Mushka Seminary in Montreal, Canada, a teacher’s college. Over the years, the two friends kept in touch through social media. It was on the What’sAPP when Shusterman saw the post about her friend’s sudden death. “It was just heart breaking, “says Shusterman, who drove out that week to New York with her husband to pay their respects to Rashi’s family. “Ten minutes before 8 p.m. [on March 11], my wife Rashi sat at the head of the beautifully set dining-room table waiting for women to arrive for her weekly [Tuesday-night] class in our home called ‘Torah and Tea,’ ” writes Rabbi Hirshy Minkowitz, director of Chabad of North Fulton, as reported on the Chabad website. Just before the first guest arrived, Rashi, went to her room to rest from a bad headache. She never woke up. She was buried the next day. Shocked by the news, Shusterman says she felt like she had to do something in her friend’s honor. “The Lubavitcher Rebbe taught us that we must turn pain into action,” says Shusterman, who is not alone in her mission. She joins hundreds of her fellow Chabad leaders in launching a weekly women's class, Torah & Tea as “an everlasting tribute to Rashi.” In more than 150 locations—from Australia to Mexico—“Torah and Teas” are being formed in Rashi’s memory. “Rashi was a real powerhouse,” explains Shusterman. “She was incredibly dynamic, personable, warm and generous, and she impacted thousands of people worldwide

with her love and acceptance. In addition to creating a vibrant, growing Jewish community, building and running a beautiful Mikvah, directing a very successful summer camp and Hebrew school and other programs, Rashi taught a weekly women's class which she called "Torah & Tea". Rashi was bright and intelligent and taught Torah to hundreds of women throughout her 15 years of living in Atlanta.” Rashi, who coincidentally lost her grandmother at the same age of 37, ran a very active Chabad inNorth Fulton, with lots of kids, and had plans to build a new building continued on next page

continued from previous page with a Hebrew school and pre-school. Six months ago, when Rashi’s aunt died, Rashi ironically wrote “about how to stop crying, how to continue on with such tragedies; to move on and do what we have to do; don’t just buckle down, and to continue with joy,” says Shusterman. Ten ladies participated in Shusterman’s first Torah & Tea session. “It’s amazing to me that deep down we want to learn more about Judaism,” says Shusterman. “We women want to learn. We want to know how Torah works for us. I’m so inspired by everyone else.” Shusterman’s first lesson concentrated on

Like us on facebook www.facebook.com/mypaperonline • Tell Them You Saw It In The Hackettstown News, April 2014, Page 17 that week’s Torah portion, in which the ladies read some of the portion, discussed the meaning behind it, and came up with a conclusion and how it affects them as women. “It was very interesting,” says Shusterman. “There are so many topics we can learn,” from prayers, to a Jewish home and the life cycle. “Women are intrinsically spiritual. We can understand it differently than men.” Learning in a group setting as opposed to reading the Torah by oneself is effective, explains Shusterman, because “learning as a group makes it so much more exciting, it’s richer. More questions and answers come up with different points of view.

Shusterman also stresses the importance of why women need to learn the Torah. “Women are the most important part of Judaism,” says Shusterman. “She is raising her children, her generations to come. If women learn the Torah, we can impact our families,” put them in a different direction and empower them to lead more meaning into their lives. Shusterman’s goal is “to learn to spread Torah, to learn together, to grow together, to really make this world a better place. When we finished we all felt good. We’re going to take this energy and do something good. We’re enriching our lives by studying Torah. It’s emptiness; we’re all trying to find a way to deal with our spiritual world. Some turn to

drugs, alcohol, psychologists- Maybe we just need Torah.” For more information about Torah & Tea with Fraida, call Fraida Shusterman at 973927-3531. Hour long sessions are held most Mondays. Registration is required. In Mt. Olive since 2004, The Chabad of Northwest NJ aims to build a strong united Jewish presence in Mt. Olive, Washington Twp. and Warren County and to enrich the quality of Jewish life through education, spiritual, cultural and social needs of all Jews in the area.

Abilities Celebrates 40th Anniversary; Offers Great Support System To Disabled Individuals In Morris, Warren Counties And Beyond
ing for employees is not the only benefit. Abilities also creates new initiatives to help the community through their work proFor example, with the grams. “SustainAbilities” Electronics Recycling program, they accept old items free of charge (such as computers and their accessories, LCD monitors, small kitchen appliances, copy machines, printers, vacuums); and also other items for a small fee (such as Freon items, $35; CRT monitors and TVs up to 32”, $20). This “green” initiative” greatly helps the community, and the Abilities individuals will earn some money, independence, and a sense of pride. Additional information on this and other programs can be found at www.abilities.com. Abilities can offer pickup service for corporations as well, and Zukowski said they hope to partner with more municipalities on their “cleanup days.” With these and other programs, individuals working at Abilities can greatly improve their skill set, and are involved with “sustainability” in the case of this “green” recycling program. “Again, it’s a sustainable action,” said Rahill. She added that “we’re working on some other green initiatives,” that still have the opportunity “to provide skill building” for employees. (With respect to recycling computers and hard drives, Abilities also offers Certified Data Destruction for a small fee.) So, with “spring cleaning,” Abilities can really help out if we call upon them for help with a job. It all goes to show that Abilities is an “evolving and changing “ organization – one that is still fulfilling their great cause after 40 years.

by offering a full array of community-integrated employment and day program services. “There’s a huge need in our community,” said Business Developer Charissa Rahill, adding that without Abilities, these individuals would be fending for themselves “with no support system.” Rahill said a big priority is to always “get out there and make sure people know that we’re here.” Sue Zukowski, Chief Development Officer, said that staff members do an excellent job and are a great reason that Abilities succeeds. “The staff needs to be commended so much,” she said, speaking of the 120 employees on its professional staff. And disabled individuals at Abilities learn not only new skills as a result of the programs, but responsibilities like following a schedule, and working by piece rate (getting paid for what they each complete). Employees also gain pride from earning a paycheck. The local and regional businesses also benefit. They can send their product, for example, a pallet of soup cans which needs relabeling with a corrected expiration date, and employees at Abilities can finish this job and repack them back onto the pallet and send them back to the corporation. This win-win situation is what Abilities is great at, day in, day out. And the increased morale and skill build-

This agency, Abilities of Northwest New Jersey, has provided greater hope and independence to these individuals over the 40 years and continues to create new, cuttingedge programs to build upon their great cause. We celebrate the success of this nonprofit agency now, and we thank them. Abilities works with individuals to improve their quality of life and their employability. It is a private, not-for-profit community rehabilitation program providing vocational training and employment services for individuals with disabilities since 1974. If members of the public did not know much about Abilities, they may also not be aware of some of the programs there. They offer screen printing, embroidery (their advertisements say “we’ll beat the competition!”), labeling, assembly, mailings, box assembly, quality control, weighing and bagging, and more. This is why schools, organizations, and many local and regional businesses call upon them for the many services they offer. Abilities has six employment centers throughout Warren County and serves about 350 individuals throughout Warren, Morris, Hunterdon, and Sussex Counties each day

Old Fashioned Milkmen Spill Strong Delivery Service To Local Area
business with his wife Laura since 1989. “People’s lives are hectic. We’re trying to make life a little easier. It’s one convenience they like. We put a box on their porch. Most want the convenience of knowing there’s fresh milk sitting outside,” especially in the morning as they are trying to feed their kids and get them off to school. The brothers admit that their milk may cost “a little more” than most stores, but customers are not only paying for the milk, with the option of glass bottles, but the convenience. “It may be a little more expensive than the stores, but it’s a dedicated reliable service,” says Jim. “When you order something, it shows up. When you order milk, you always have it. They go out to their milk box and their milk is there no matter what.” Franks agrees, “We don’t try to compete with the price. We compete with the convenience and old fashioned nostalgia.” At one point, back in the 1950s and 1960s, “Everyone got their milk by home delivery,” says Frank. Now, only one percent to two percent of residents use a milkman. When big supermarkets started coming in and corner stores, “Everyone was going to the supermarket. It’s a dying breed,” with less than 10 left in NJ selling and delivering milk bottles right

By Cheryl Conway ypewriters, payphones and the shoerepair guy may be long gone, but some things like newspapers, paper books, encyclopedias... and even the milkman…are still hanging on fighting for survival. Frank O’Brien, co-owner of Long Valley Dairy, still delivers farm-fresh milk to homes as well as other products every day after 25 years of being in the business. Although they share expenses, his brother, Jim O’Brien, started a similar but separate business, Shamrock Dairy in Hackettstown one year later. The two brothers of Hackettstown are the last of the few remaining old-fashioned milkmen delivering fresh milk right to the doorstep. The key ingredients that have kept their businesses alive have been the convenience, dependable service and the freshest products. “In today’s society, most couples are both working,” says Frank. “They’re running, dropping kids off at school, they’re running around. If he doesn’t have to go to the store, it’s a convenience, especially if you have young children and you need milk. “It’s more about convenience and service,” says Frank, who has run the small family-owned home delivery and commercial

to the door. “We had a milkman,” recalls Frank. “We had an old fashioned milk box. We never saw him. We’d get up in the morning and saw the milk.” With a degree in business from Bloomsburg University in Pa., Frank knew he wanted to own his own business one day. “He had been working in the corporate world for 15 years and realized “I didn’t want to be in the rat race anymore.” At the same time, his milkman was looking to retire after being in business for 20 years, so Frank, at the age of

35, decided to buy his business in 1989. He brought his brother, Jim out here from Wilkes Barre, Pa, to deliver his second run, and then they decided that Jim should open up the other business, Shamrock Dairy. When Frank first started out, he was one of 41 independent contractors/distributors getting their products from Welsh Farms in Long Valley, which had been in business since 1891. “They had a very good product.” That worked out well until Welsh Farms closed its doors in 2000. continued on next page

Old Fashioned Milkmen...
continued from previous page Frank switched to Byrne Dairy in New York, a small family owned business since the 1930s that was unique since it sold its milk in glass bottles. “No one in New Jersey was doing that,” says Frank. “We would have a unique product.” For each customer, the brothers put out an insulated porch box, in different sizes, for customers to store the milk for a number of hours until they can get to it. With the glass bottles, customers return the rinsed bottles to the porch box, which Frank then returns to Byrne Dairy to be sanitized and then reused. The bottle concept fits right into today’s world with the push for keeping green and recycling. “It hits both generations,” says Frank, about the bottle concept. The older generations like that it is “old fashioned” while the younger generations who are more environmentally conscious support the reused glass bottles. One of the benefits of having milk brought right to your door is to avoid the grocery store. “Some just go to the grocery store to get a gallon of milk which is all the way in the back of the store but you come out spending a $100 in other stuff,” says Frank. “In the grocery store, the milk is always in the back right corner which forces you to walk through the whole store to get to it.” Frank and his brother have about 500 customers, or 250 each, between their two businesses. With their own territories, Frank services most of Long Valley while his brother delivers to the other side of the mountain. The O’Brien brothers share the expenses of their home delivery/commercial service businesses, such as refrigeration, combined bulk pricing from supplier and some trucks, but they operate under separate entities each keeping their own profits. In addition to home deliveries, they sell to small businesses, with more than 50 wholesale accounts. “Small self-employed people that own businesses love the bottle concept,” says Frank. The whole sale companies such as Ashley Farms in Flanders and Donaldson Farm in Hackettstown charge their customers a deposit for the glass bottle so they return them to the farm. Their customer base for homes and businesses accompany most of north western New Jersey, in Warren, Hunterdon, Sussex, Somerset and Morris counties, stretching from Green Township, toSparta and Bedminster. They sell farm-fresh milk, dairy products, juice, water, eggs, coffee, teas, bread, bacon, yogurt, creamers, cheeses and more, right to their customer’s door. Each home is provided with an insulated milk box near the front door, in sizes of extra large, large and small/medium. The extra large box can hold up to four bottles of milk, eggs and butter. “We serve a quality product,” says Frank. “When they taste it, it’s a very good product. Our milk does not have hormones.” Farmers sign a pledge that forbid them from injecting cows with hormones, he says. Customers can attest to the taste, quality and excellent service. “It’s always fresh, really good dates, he buys exactly what we order,” says Aimee Ashley Myers, market manager of Ashley Farms in Flanders, a customer of Long Valley Dairy for the past ten years. “We like Byrne Dairy products,” with its no growth hormones. The service is amazing.” A fourth generation family-owned farm business since 1948- that raises turkey, vegetables and runs a retail farm market- Ashley Farms orders a half tractor trailer load from Long Valley Dairy. All of its milk, in both plastic and glass bottles, as well as its butter, cream cheeses, whipped cream and cottage cheese come from Frank. It “costs more to buy from Frank,” says Myers but she prefers the “quality. The milk in the glass is better, stays fresher, stays colder. It’s delicious. It’s been a good partnership for both of us; As a small business, if you can support a small business. It’s great service. It’s just a really good working relationship. He takes the orders and he delivers the milk. It’s a one-man show. He just always knows. It’s really personal stuff; he knows what we order; he knows where to put it.” Deliveries are early morning, weekdays, from 4 a.m. until about noon, concentrating on a certain area each day. After their deliveries, they sort through their orders to prepare for their next day’s deliveries. They each average about 50 home deliveries daily, plus their wholesale accounts, and make the deliveries themselves except when they hire parttimers when they vacation. For the most part- it’s a one man show. Frank’s wife Laura has helped with the billing and keeping the books, and his three kids have helped throughout the years. “It’s not easy,” says Frank. “Any small business owner, you have to put the time in. It’s hard work. I’m a small businessman. I’m an army of one. I wear many hats. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs, hard stuff, but we were able to survive.” Days off are rare. “I haven’t missed a day off of work in 25 years,” says Jim, even when laid up in bed after having his wisdom teeth pulled and a recent bout of the flu. “It’s just me. “You just have to get out of bed and go. You gotta get it done. You are the only one to do it. You gotta push through. “It’s a reliable thing,” says Jim. “They sign continued on next page

up for the service, when they order something, I’m there.” Franks says, “We go out in snowstorms. We are better than the mailman,” adding that he hadn’t gotten mail in two days this winter with the heavy snow, “but we still made deliveries. We are very reliable, very convenient. You are dealing with mom and pop. We are self-employed; Bigger is not better.” There are few sick days for Frank. “One time when the kids were small,” Frank had the flu, “we got a babysitter, I was driving with my dead over the steering wheel and Laura would run and make the deliveries.” There was another time, back in 2005, when Frank hurt his hip and could not make deliveries for a year with the required heavy lifting, so his eldest son, also named Frank, took a year long break from school to help his dad with the business, and then returned to get his degree in criminal justice. “We did a lot of things over 25 years to survive,” says Frank. His youngest son, Michael, a high school senior, also helps out when he can, even when it was football season after his practices; as well as his 30 year- old daughter, Caitlyn of Jersey City, a new mom who helps take orders and keep spreadsheets. “It’s a family run business, always been,” says Frank, and with that he prides himself in teaching his children valuable lessons about managing their time, conversing with adults and building relationships. Although the work is hard, Frank says, “I like what I do. I know all of my customers; I like interacting with them. I’ve seen when their kids are born and now they’re going off to college.” He has seen them switch from whole milk as kids to two percent as teenagers. “When I pass the bus stop, they know who I am. That’s a good feeling.” continued from previous page Frank, who has been delivering products to some customers for 20 years, says, “My business is not based on price; it’s service, convenience and relationships.” He recalls back in the day when he took his son Frank with him to make deliveries, his son would get angry since it would take them 10 or 11 hours, rather than eight hours, to finish because of all the talking that his father did with his customers. Frank’s business motto has been “you have to converse with people, you have to talk. I can knock this out in eight hours,” admits Frank, “but two hours is building relationships. I enjoy this job because you have all of these relationships. I know they don’t have to buy from me but they like the relationship.” He realizes, as a businessman “I’m not making a million bucks (like the guys on Wall Street), but I’m happy with what I’m doing.” To receive the home delivery service, customers must have a minimum order of $15 per delivery. All products are fully guaranteed. Customers receive an itemized invoice every two weeks and 99 percent of the customers pay by credit card. “Everything is about convenience,” says Frank. With advances in technology, customers can email or text with any order changes 24 hours in advance, says Frank, who now has a smart phone as opposed to when he first started out with his “classic answering machine.” For more information about Long Valley Dairy go to www.longvalleydairy.com.

Pet Photos With the Easter Bunny To Benefit Coming Home Rescue
About Coming Home Rescue: Coming Home Rescue is a volunteer based, 501(c)3 organization focused on helping homeless animals in shelters throughout New Jersey. It is estimated that approximately 38,000 animals were euthanized in the state of New Jersey last year alone. Coming Home Rescue is dedicated to reducing that number by rescuing and re-homeing as many dogs from these shelters as possible. We have saved over 650 dogs since starting in 2009.

Looking For Our ‘Forever Home’

oming Home Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit dog rescue organization, will host a Pet Photos with the Easter Bunny event at Rockaway Garden Center, 296 Route 46, Rockaway, NJ, on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 10am-3pm. All proceeds will aid the dog rescue group in saving more dogs in New Jersey. Photos are $8 each or two for $15 and can include pets, kids or the entire family. To learn more about Coming Home Rescue, see upcoming adoption dates and view all dogs available for adoption, visitwww.cominghomerescue.org.

Here are Betty and Wilma from Eleventh Hour Rescue who are 3 year old hound mix sisters. They belonged to an elderly man who could no longer properly care for them. A family took the dogs in and then to their surprise discovered that they were both pregnant. The dogs delivered and the pups were adopted, but the Moms were left behind. Both dogs are now fully vetted, spayed and micro-chipped and are ready to go. They do not need to be adopted together. Both dogs are housebroken and very sweet natured, and have now learned to walk on a leash. If you are interested in these lovely ladies, please read more about them and fill out an application by visiting: www.ehrdogs.org or call: 973-664-0865.

This is Bear Barnwell from Eleventh Hour Rescue. Bear Barnwell is a very handsome, 4 year old, male, Chow Chow mix. His owner unfortunately passed away and his remaining family members couldn’t take him in so he was left at a shelter. Once his time was up at the shelter, Eleventh Hour Rescue stepped in to save him from a different fate. He is a good boy who likes human companionship. He can be shy at first meeting and would prefer a quiet home without much excitement. He is used to living in a home environment, so he is housetrained and walks well on a leash too. To read more about Bear Barnwell, to see all of the adoptable pets, and to see the upcoming events, please visit: www.ehrdogs.org or call: 973-664-0865. Photo credit: Daniel Kerr Photography

While most people think about slow cooking for staples like chili and stew, it’s also perfect for center-of-the-plate feasts — like an Easter ham. Using the slow cooker, you can minimize both prep time and cleanup time, leaving plenty of room in the day for church, hunting eggs and enjoying time with your loved ones.

Nickelodeon in 1910 Claimed Thomas Edison as the ‘Who's Who in the Film Game’
was definitely the most hi-tech sports coverage of the 19th Century. We can imagine what a hoot it must have been to have a follow up film a month later of two cats boxing. The Edison movie studio would coin new tongue in cheek lexicons that have lasted into the 21st Century. The studio was called the Black Maria. It was erected and unveiled in December 1892, on the lot of Edison’s lab and factory location in West Orange, NJ. It was a black hulking wood and tarpaulin structure. Edison first promoted it as the “Kinetographic Theater.” But, its comic name the “Black Maria” (a moniker for the police paddy wagon) became its popular name that stuck. It jokingly did have the qualities of a boxy policy paddy wagon especially since it was black in color and had wheels. Today the name Black Maria conjures legendary short cinematic artistry but, in its era the name brought a little chuckle from its theater stage performers. In 1981 the popular film festival and annual completion of short format films (less than one hour) was named the Black Maria Film Festival in honor of Thomas Edison’s first motion picture studio. Would the festival have been called the Kinetographic Theater Film Festival if Edison didn’t have a sense of humor in accepting comic names for his inventions? Another interesting parallel to the 21st Century is that Edison believed that video shows should be made for individual private viewing. It took some convincing to make him accept that an entire group of people would be interested in watching a film in a theater. Would he not have the last laugh seeing all the individual video display devices we have

by Michele Guttenberger any think of Thomas Edison as an inventor of the incandescent light bulb or phonograph but, few realize the cultural impact he had for creating the world’s first motion picture studio that still parallels to today’s digital video culture. The world’s first motion picture studio was built by Thomas Edison in 1893. History also gives credit to Edison’s lead staff engineer William Kennedy Laurie Dickson, who not only helped to develop the motion picture cameras and projectors but also produced these short motion picture films. The most humorous popular videos on YouTube are the antics of cats. Thomas Edison thought cats were cool to film too. His new film production company -Thomas Edison Inc., filmed two cats boxing in 1894. Professor Henry Welton had an entire stage comedy act that featured cats trained to perform all kinds of skits. So, cat videos were being made before the 20th century. Ironically the boxing cats were captured on film using a movie camera that was nicknamed the Doghouse by Edison because of its size and wooden composition. Some have surmised that the cat boxing film created in July 1894 was actually the first spoof video because; in June 1894 the Leonard–Cushing boxing bout was filmed. Each of the six one-minute rounds was recorded by the Kinetograph (dog house movie camera) and these short films were sold to exhibitors for $22.50. Patrons who watched the final round saw Leonard score a knockdown. The Leonard–Cushing boxing bout produced in the Edison studio

today? Maybe today we still can find a great read in the Nickelodeon article written August 1, 1910 entitled "Who's Who in the Film Game: Facts and Fancies About a Man You Know or Ought to Know,". Even today he is still somebody we ought to know in the video industry’s history. Please visit Thomas Edison’s West Orange lab where you can view these short films and take a look at the Black Maria studio. Visit the Thomas Alva Edison Museum - NPS - Open Wednesday through Sunday. Hours are 10:00am - 4:00pm Fee is $7.00 - 211 Main Street West Orange, NJ. Visit website for more details http://www.nps.gov/edis/index.ht
