April 2014

Morristown Teacher Jennifer Carcich Nominated for Local Radio Station WDHA's Teachers Who Rock Program
School in Morristown. The winners will attend an awards banquet on April 28th. The goal of the contest is to recognize and honor teachers who work in schools throughout New Jersey. Teacher Who Rock is sponsored by the NJEA, or New Jersey Education Association. Parents, principals, fellow students, superintendents, and students are all encouraged to submit their nominations for teachers they believe have done more than is necessary for their school and students. Co-workers, parents, and students of Carcich wrote in to the station to nominate her for the program, explaining that she goes out of her way to connect with and teach every student. According to those who nominated her, Carcich educates the students academically and strives to teach them about compassion and empathy, for the environment and for one another. In addition to her standout role as a teacher, Carcich is in the middle of campaigning to raise much-needed funds for her school's outdoor

By Kate Halse local rock radio station in Dover, 105.5 WDHA, recently announced this year's 24 nominees for its annual Teachers Who Rock program. Among the list of winners for this year's program is Mrs. Jennifer Carcich, a 2nd and 3rd grade teacher at the Unity Charter

learning space, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Carcich is honored as a Teacher Who Rocks for her ongoing dedication to sustainability. For Carcich, the announcement came as a shock and a surprise, as she had no idea that anyone had nominated her for the program. The announcement was initially supposed to come during a morning assembly, but Carcich's

meeting ran late and she was unable to attend. As a result, the announcement was made over the school's PA system later on that day. "I was completely shocked," says Carcich. She explains that, "I had no idea that any of them did that, and to find out that 3 different people nominated meI was completely taken aback." Carcich says that after hearing about the nomina-

tion, "I am inspired to keep doing what I'm doing." She notes that her method of teaching is different from that of other teachers. "I try to make as little of an impact as possible on the planet," and teaches her students to do the same. "It's important for people to understand sustainability." Many of the projects that take place in Carcich's classroom take place over continued on page 4

they will receive expert advice on the best plants to select to achieve their dream garden based upon factors, such as sun and soil. We encourage people to bring photos and talk to our plant experts. Whether you select annuals to dress up containers, perennials to fill borders, a vine for softening hard edges, or a shrub to fill out an empty space, you can be certain that your plant is well-suited for New Jerseys climate. Parness added, It is interesting to note that recently, the American Horticultural Society re-assigned its Growing Zones. The impacts of climate change necessitated this re-thinking of what will grow successfully here. Plants are carefully selected based on their vigor and suitability in other words, all the hard work is done for you. Just come and exercise your personal style with confidence that your plants will thrive. Not sure what the proper care of your new purchases is? Ask a Plant Expert. Unlike big box stores or nurseries that hire seasonal sales staff, this Plant Sale is staffed by knowledgeable gardeners and garden professionals. Bring your container along and we help you to create something special. Bring photographs or drawings of your garden and we help you to fill in the blank spaces. Shopping at the Friends Plant Sale is not just a consumer experience its an education!

In yet another project, Carcich's students made a tree of toilet paper rolls, disassembled them for a math project, then used them for Mother's Day. Aside from sustainability, Carcich promotes advocacy, and teaches her students how to advocate for something that they truly believe in.

Morristown Kiwanis Club Builds Float for St. Patricks Day Parade
Early Saturday morning, the float was driven over to the parade assembly area behind Town Hall in Morristown, where the finishing touches were completed by Steve McKinley, Artie Ayres, and Don Malehorn. Steve drove the float in the parade and was accompanied by six girls from the Morristown High School Key Club, who walked alongside and handed out hard candy to young children along the parade route. The six Key Club volunteers were: Sarah Chelo, Emily McLaughlin, Kate McGrath, Emma Zawaki, Karen Beltran, and Mirka Molina. Following the conclusion of the parade, the float was taken back to Morristown Lumber and dismantled by Steve McKinley, Artie Ayres, Steve Deering, and Don Malehorn. A fun time was had by all, and the Morristown Kiwanis Club is proud to have provided the float for this years parade.

nce again, the Morristown Kiwanis Club continued its long tradition of sponsoring a float in the St. Patricks Day Parade in Morristown, NJ on March 15th. And once again, thanks to Morristown Lumber, a flatbed truck was used to create the float. The project began about 4:30 Friday evening, March 14th, in the big garage at Morristown Lumber where the float was constructed by the following club members: Steve McKinley, Artie Ayres, John Hunt, President Don Malehorn, Steve Deering, Paul Freeland, Wayne Walters, Charlie Bensley, Jim Galbraith, Jr., and Art Klein. Steve and Artie Ayres were the lead builders, and everyone else pitched in to assist. Some of the decorative touches were completed by three Morristown High School Key Club members who also helped: Marina Piccolo, Jacqueline Clemens, and Madyson Cullim. The float was completed by 8:30.

surgery which involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial one is the best option. While people can have an age-related cataract in their 40s and 50s, most cataracts which occur during middle age do not affect vision. In order to diagnose cataracts, your eye doctor will give you a comprehensive eye exam to test how well you can see. Your doctor will also dilate your pupil in the interest of examining the condition of the lens and other parts of the eye. J.C. Reiss Optician is located at 25 South Street in downtown Morristown.

hile cataracts commonly occur among older individuals, many may not be aware that they are suffering any symptoms because cataracts develop slowly and painlessly. As the eye lenses become progressively more clouded, cataract sufferers experience blurred vision, which makes objects appear as though they are being viewed through a cloudy piece of glass. Viewed objects may also appear to have a yellowish tint. Although both eyes are generally affected, one is usually worse than the other. Bright, glare-free lighting may help significantly improve blurriness. However, when things get to a point where cataracts interfere with work and leisure activities, cataract

Although VNA services are available to both young and old, more than 85% of all clients are above age 65. In fact, the fastest growing segment of the client population is over age 80.

Cats-Only Boarding Facility or Animal HospitalWhich Choice Is the Best Choice?

ith the summer right around the corner, it is time to make those vacation plans for you and your pets. But where should you board your cats? For most people, there are two choices: an animal hospital or a boarding facility. The animal hospital option is best if your cat is ill or you are in fear of a medical situation. Your vet can give insulin shots and fluids under the skin, can watch for diabetic shock, and can treat other serious conditions a boarding facility cannot. An animal hospital is equipped to handle more serious medical problems and has technicians watching your pet. Many of the cat-only facilities in Northern New Jersey do not give insulin shots and do not have vets on staff who can monitor serious health problems. But if your cat only needs pills or other oral medications for a non-life-threatening illness, most boarding facilities can accommodate your cats needs. If your cat gets nervous around dogs and loud spaces, the best choice would be a cats-only boarding facility. The advantages of a cats-only facility are: (1) No barking dogs to stress out the cats. (2) Very quiet surroundings with one staff member cleaning up at a time. (3) One-on-one attention to calm a nervous cat, (4) Exercise to keep them entertained, and (5) No cages! You might be surprised that some animal

hospitals actually recommend a cats-only facility over their facilities. For example, the Livingston Animal Hospital and Hodes Veterinary Group both recommended the Cat Chalet to someone who had a timid cat that they wanted to board when they went away on business for a month. Both places felt that the Cat Chalets quiet, stress-free environment would be better for this cat than their own boarding facilities. The client was very surprised that two animal hospitals would recommend the Cat Chalet since they both board cats, but both knew that the Cat Chalet would take the time to work with the cat to make sure he eats and comes out of his condo to interact with the staff for his extended stay. The client was even happier that during the months of January, February, and March the Cat Chalet has reduced rates for monthly boarding. If you would like to see how the Cat Chalet, located in Randolph, New Jersey, on Route 10, can make a difference in your cats life, call ahead for a reservation, (973) 9896160, and visit the website, for photos and more information.

St. Marks Welcomes New Rector The Rev. Shawn Carty

church. Every church is called to reach out to its community and Im interested in exploring that with the people of St. Marks, said Fr. Carty. Fr. Carty comes to St. Marks after nine years as rector of Emmanuel Episcopal. He previously served as deacon at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Issaquah, WA and postulant for the priesthood at St. Margarets Episcopal Church in Bellevue, WA. Before that, Fr. Carty served as pastor in the United Methodist Church. In time, he felt pulled into the Episcopal Church. I found myself drawn into the Episcopal Church mostly though its worship and liturgy. The Book of Common Prayer is a gem, said Fr. Carty. My ecumenical journey makes me appreciate that we all dont take the same path. I am looking forward to connecting with other religious leaders and communities here. St. Marks Church is located in the center of the historic district of Mendham, and its sanctuary features Carpenter-Gothic style architecture typical of the nineteenth century. With congregants of all ages, members of St. Marks Church School are often active participants in Sunday services. In 2013, a Rodgers organ donated by Ingrid Williams of Mendham was installed and dedicated. St. Marks Preschool also utilizes the adjacent Parish Hall and classrooms. The congregants at St. Marks look forward to welcoming Fr. Carty and his family on April 13, and encourage others from the community to join in celebrating his arrival. Sundays Holy Eucharist service is at 10 a.m. Fr. Carty references a phrase from a favorite writer, Frederick Buechner, to highlight his hopes for the congregants and future worshippers at St. Marks. The place where were called is where our deep gladness and Gods need in the world intersect, quoted Fr. Carty. I look forward to exploring where is St. Marks deep gladness, what are the needs of the community, and where can we make the greatest difference in each others lives.

St. Marks is a welcoming, hospitable parish that is ready for a new chapter, and Im in that position, too, said Fr. Carty, eager to return to Morris County after earning in 1996 his Master of Divinity degree from Drew University. The search committee at St. Marks conducted a year-long search to identify the new rector, believing that Fr. Cartys varied experiences, outgoing personality, ease with serving congregants of all ages and spiritual leadership will support him in leading the

NCJW, West Morris and Temple B'nai Or Sisterhood To Cosponsor Program on 'Eliminate Poverty Now' April 23 In Morristown
on earth. Most of the country lies in the Sahara Desert. Eighty percent of its 15 million people farm rain-fed crops for their survival. In such arid conditions, and with drought now occurring in two years out of every five, they are at constant risk of starvation. "Our main project there is to introduce modern agricultural practices using irrigation as the foundation," John Craig notes. "We partner with a world-famous Israeli agricultural scientist, one of the team that developed drip irrigation technology to make the Negev bloom." Judy Craig adds, "Our work also focuses on empowering women economically. When women earn income, the entire society benefits: HIV/AIDS rates go down, maternal and infant mortality goes down, domestic abuse goes down, gross domestic product goes up, and birthrate goes down." The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.

he National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), West Morris Section, and the Sisterhood/Women's Network of Temple B'nai Or will cosponsor a fascinating presentation on the nonprofit organization Eliminate Poverty Now, on Wednesday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m. at Temple B'nai Or, 60 Overlook Road, in Morristown. The program is free and open to the public. Eliminate Poverty Now was founded in 2010 by John and Judy Craig of Mendham, with the goal of creating economic opportunity for the extreme poor in Africa, especially women. The "extreme poor" is not just a descriptive term. The precise definition is people who live on less than $1 per day. Sadly, over 1 billion people fall into that category, and Africa is home to the largest percentage of them. Eliminate Poverty Now empowers these people by providing knowledge and opportunity to help them lift themselves out of extreme poverty. "Most of our work is in rural areas because that's where most of the extreme poor live. And most of it is agricultural because that's the principal activity in the countryside," John Craig says. The Craigs will highlight the work they're doing in Niger, the poorest country

John Craig, left, and Judy Craig, right, both of Mendham and cofounders of Eliminate Poverty Now, flank Rachel Ruto, wife of the vice president of Kenya. The Craigs will be giving a free talk, open to the public, onApril 23 at Temple B'nai Or in Morristown.

The Sisterhood/Womens Network of TBO envisions itself as a welcoming community for women of all ages and stages in their Jewish journey. We open our doors and our hearts to all who seek friendship and an opportunity to grow as individuals, as volunteers and as leaders. Stronger together, we make an important difference in our synagogue, our local and global Jewish communities through support

of Jewish education, social action initiatives, innovative programs and celebrations. Collectively, we have influence and impact on critical, contemporary issues affecting women and children, and the continuity of the Jewish people.

Doyne spoke about her supportive parents and the role they played in forming her mindset. We did a lot of camping and I learned how to rough it. They also taught us to dream big. She also suggested that her journey has not always been smooth. Its not easy to live 8,000 miles away, she said. Doyne acknowledges the tremendous base of local support she has enjoyed. School children and everyone from 5 year olds to senior citizens have been actively involved from the beginning in raising funds for Doynes projects in Nepal. Teenagers have run marathons and there has been everything from cupcakes sales to dance parties to dinners, Doyne said. When someone donates a back pack, they actually can see the child (in a photo) who wears it. Doyne also said the office space that her Blink Now Foundation uses in Morristown is donated, and volunteers are recruited to work there. Doynes story to change these childrens lives started when she was only 19 and literally owned nothing more that the personal belongings in her back pack. In her travels back in 2006, Doyne had come across refugees from Northeastern India, where there had been a civil war. They were living under plastic with no water. Doyne has conveyed her thoughts at the time, which was that every child deserves a home, a safe place to live, medical care, and a school to attend. She has said in past interviews that she wont stop until every child does. Her decision to help began the day she locked eyes with her first project, a 7 year old girl named Hema. I looked at her and saw every piece of myself in her, Doyne remembers. The child she had met was only one of 80 million in the world that were orphaned, starving, uneducated, and forced to work to help support their family, Doyne has said. It turned out to be a defining moment in her Doynes life. I grew up with a trampoline in my back yard and played on the soccer field and was going to my first dance at her age, Doyne has said when revealing her thoughts. At that point, she had asked herself the most important question, which was Is there something I can do to change the life of just one child? After making inquiries, Doyne continued on next page

By Joe Weston his Morris County girls humanitarian journey started when she was 19 and resolved to change the life of one dirt-poor child she had met in Nepal. What followed is an incredible story. Fast forwarding to when she was only 23, Maggie Doyne was raising 200 Nepali children who had been orphaned and diseased as a result of a civil war in Northeast India. And at that tender age, she personally funded and built a home and school (made mostly from bamboo) for the village where she had started her journey by helping that first child. Doyne is now 27, and the organization she created (you may want to check out her website, feeds more than 350 children a day and employs over 40 Nepali employees. The project is now locally self-sustained. It includes a medical needs program and a local women's support/training program. Doyne confirmed just on March 19 that she is in the process of building a high school there that is costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. This past February, Doyne was honored by the nonprofit group Wisdom in Action with The Unsung Heroes of Compassion Award, presented by The Dalai Lama. Although it is nice to be recognized, Doyne will tell you her real reward is being with her kids that live and study at The Childrens Home and School of Kopila Valley, Nepal. The beautiful Himalayan Village is Maggie Doynes home, my little slice of heaven, my little paradise. A successful spin-off program resulting from Doynes humanitarianism is the Morristown-based Kopila Fellow Program. It was started to replicate what Doyne did when she graduated from High School take a year off before attending college to volunteer in a part of the world that desperately needs help. Doyne spoke about the program just recently on March 19. Each year, we have about 200 applicants and we take 5 or 6 of them back with us to Kopila Valley, Nepal. But this year, Doyne said, a lot of people applied who were professionals. We had all kinds of people from all walks of life. Doyne said its awesome, because this is exactly what we needteachers, nurses, musicians, artists, etc. We need to have a variety of professionals to grow, she said. Im a big proponent of gap years, Doyne said. (A gap year is when a student

Mendham Humanitarian Talks...

continued from previous page had found that she could enter the child, whose name was Hema, into a school for only $7. Doyne paid the meager amount to school the child. She followed Hemas progress and watched her thrive. After seeing this, she had asked herself the next question: If I am able to do this for one child, what about 5 or 10? Her desire to help had become addictive. She found a piece of land that cost $5,000. Coincidentally, she had $5,000 in personal savings from babysitting and other odd jobs back at home in the U.S. She called her parents back home in the U.S. and asked them to wire it so she could buy the property. She bought the property not knowing where the next dollar was coming from to develop it. So, Doyne returned to her parents home to Mendham before she was even 20 years old to raise money for her new commitment to the children she had met in Nepal. Ill just babysit again, she recently said on March 19, re-telling her story. But after she shared her dreams, the local newspapers in the Morris County area printed it, and donations started trickling in. Her first big break occurred when Cosmopolitan magazine awarded her with a $20,000 prize for her humanitarian efforts. Doyne had an audience laughing in 2010 when she described how the magazine representative explained the strings attached. We are going to whisk you away to NYC for a Maybelline makeover. Doyne told of her experience at the hair dresser salon during that same speech . She was astounded to find I had lice in my hair. Doyne appreciated the make over, but added I wouldnt let them dye my hair chocolate brown. The next big development for Doynes dream was hugeshe received a grant from for $100,000 towards her dream for building a school for her kids. The first thing I did with the money was take the kids for elephant rides, she recalled in that speech which can be watched on her website. Then, she began the work of building a school for 200 kids. It was made out of locally harvested bamboo, clay, stone, and topped with a tin roof. Doyne told of how she had prepared for the schools opening by speaking to psychologists, who all said that the best thing you can do for a child is to let them express themselves through art and acting. So, we did a big show on stage and everything was narrated by puppets. Doyne has used her experience to inspire others to be the best that they can be. We have talents and we have gifts. This just happens to be mine, and Im really lucky, she in that 2010 speech. Doyne had been quick to admit her can do attitude came from the navet of youth. If we all have that attitude that we could do anything, that we could be anything; then we could follow the dreams in our heart.

his year, make your Easter ham effortless by ditching the oven and using your slow cooker instead. While most people think about slow cooking for staples like chili and stew, its 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. Ham is a tradition for many families this time of year, and because it pairs well with a multitude of ingredients, you can create a unique dish every time. For a fresh spin on the classic ham, try this Sweet Southern Slow-Cooker Ham recipe from the National Pork Board. Apple cider and bourbon (or vanilla extract, if you prefer) combine to create a rich flavor complemented by the sweetness of brown sugar.

1/3 cup Kentucky bourbon 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup Dijon mustard 4 fresh thyme sprigs Place ham in large slow cooker. Whisk cider with brown sugar, bourbon, honey and mustard. Slowly pour over ham. Scatter thyme sprigs into slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours, or until very tender. Remove ham to

rest on cutting board. Pass remaining cooking liquid through fine mesh sieve into saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes or until slightly reduced. Carve ham into serving pieces. Brush ham pieces with cooking liquid before arranging on platter. Serve warm or at room temperature. Note: For a non-alcoholic alternative, replace the bourbon with 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract.

Aggressive Pothole Repair Campaign Underway In Morris County

The county advises residents who encounter a pothole on a county road to report it via e-mail to or to call the county garage in Hanover Township at 973-285-6763. The countys pothole repair campaign is part of the Freeholder Boards 2014 capital budget, which contains $775,900 more this year to repave county roads than it did last year. The Freeholders increased county spending for road repaving from the 2013 level of $1.4 million to $2.2 million. Another $3.9 million will be coming from the state and $1.16 million will come from the federal government. While the Freeholders continue an overall reduction of capital projects from previous spending levels to reduce the countys debt, they continue to invest in infrastructure maintenance and improvements.

orris County has undertaken an aggressive program to fill the potholes left behind on county-maintained roads by Old Man Winter. The countys Roads, Bridges and Shade Tree Division has six crews out in force along the 300 miles of county roadways, locating and filling potholes. To assist the workers and to reduce the hazardous driving conditions potholes create for motorists, the Morris County Freeholders added $75,000 to the 2014 capital budget for the purchase of two Hot Boxes to add to the two others purchased by the county in 2013. A Hot Box keeps the asphalt used to fill a pothole heated at the right temperature to ensure a better, longer-lasting repair. Without such equipment, a pothole is filled with asphalt from the rear of a pickup truck, with the material losing heat as it is transported.
