Scouts Help to Feed Others

he Boy Scouts of 156 of Troop Fanders along with their leaders assisted with the Feed the Need event in Clinton, NJ on Sunday March 30th.

The Scouts packaged 45 cases of meals which translated to 1,620 total meals. The event, which ran for five days, exceeded the goal of 1,000,000 meals by completing 1,029,000 meals for the children.

port all nearby small farming businesses. “It’s great,” says Mt. Olive Twp. Mayor Rob Greenbaum. “It helps out the local farmers; helps them to connect with residents in Mt. Olive Township. It also gives residents fresh from the farm as an outlet.” Laura Rimmer, marketing director of Mt. Olive Recreation, says “New Jersey is, after all, the GardenState and we would like to encourage Mt. Olive residents to buy local thus supporting small businesses and family farm operations in our immediate area.” A bunch of residents got a taste of a local farmers market last year at the Fall in Love with MountOlive weekend, when Mt.

n organized home is a comfortable place where you are able to find what you need and can feel proud. A place where all items are meaningful and useful. Disorganized spaces and clutter lead to feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious and antsy. Conversely, the feelings people have when they are in a tidy, uncluttered environment are those of happiness, calm, balance and peace. It is so important for our wellbeing that we pare down our belongings, only buying what we need and love, and re purposing and donating what we don’t need. As an organizer, my goal is to help people attain a sense of balance with their things. Think about what you can pare down. Select a room to start with, and begin the process of decluttering.

Farmer’s Market Opens...
continued from front page Market in the Town Hall parking lot. “The intent was to determine if there was an interest amongst our audience for a market and to highlight all of the local farms and providers here in the greater Mt. Olive area,” says Rimmer. The market saw an audience of over 200 attendees on that one Saturday, thus prompting us to move forward with plans to instill a full season market for 2014.” The idea for a Farmer’s Market grew out of the Mt. Olive Recreation Department “as we continue to develop and implement programming that meets the needs and requests of our constituents,” says Rimmer. After the success of the Fall in Love one day market in the Fall of 2013, Rimmer along with Jill Daggon, Mt. Olive Recreation supervisor, joined the Northern New Jersey Farmer’s Market Association. “Through this organization we have learned a great deal about how to run a successful market, whom to incorporate as a vendor and what policies to put into place, ensuring everyone’s success,” says Rimmer. Recreation officials chose the area in front of the Senior Center as the location because “This will allow us to maximize the parking in the remainder of the Town Hall lot and use the Mt. Olive Public Library for overflow if necessary,” says Rimmer. It was also a good choice since “Mt. Olive Town Hall is centrally located between Budd Lake and Flanders.” Rimmer anticipates at least 15 to 20 vendors throughout the 24-week season each Saturday. “The goal is to have a set group of vendors who are there weekly,” says Rimmer. Every third Saturday, other vendors

Page 8, April 2014, Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News • Like us on facebook including area crafters, artisans and artists will be invited to reserve a spot to feature and sell their work. As of March 1, seven full season vendors registered to participate with three more awaiting paperwork. RH Farms, Mini Mac Farms, Lazy Susan’s Granola, Honey Bee Farms, Flying Alpaca Farm, High Mountain Pasta and a pickle vendor have already signed on to the full season. “There is no deadline to join our market,” says Rimmer. “We have Full season spaces (24 weeks), Half season early spaces which are from May 10 – July 26, or Half season late spaces which are fromJuly 26 - Oct. 18 depending on the type of product or produce the vendor has to offer and it’s optimal harvest time.” Recreation’s goal is to allow more of the local vendors from Mt. Olive and surrounding counties to participate. “We are only allowing vendors in Morris County, Sussex County and Warren County to participate in our market so that we foster a sense of community and connect Mt. Olive residents with the producers who are right here in their ‘backyards.’” says Rimmer. The choices will be endless. “We are developing the market to be a hearty mix of produce, plants and flowers, honey, dairy products, organic poultry, meat and eggs and other specialty food products,” says Rimmer. The market will promote healthy choices with natural and organic food, representing farms and vendors that practice sustainable and natural means of production. The closest market is the Farmer’s Market in Sparta, which is also a member of the Northern New Jersey Farmer’s Market Association. “They and their market managers have been very helpful to us in developing our market,” adds Rimmer. Recreation hopes that the Farmer’s Market, which will be held rain or shine, will be a success so they can continue it annually. The Mt. Olive Recreation Farmer’s Market will open on Sat., May 10, with a special Mother’s Day Tea Celebration sponsored by JCP&L. All mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-to-be are invited to join that morning for some shopping, a relaxing cup of complimentary tea in a special tent and a small gift. The May 10 market will include produce, flowers, meat, eggs and a host of artisans selling craft wares. Throughout the season recreation will offer special promotions featuring cooking demonstrations, themed weekends and educational opportunities that will foster “open communication” to highlight how various produce can be cooked and prepared in the healthiest way. Proceeds from the Farmer’s Market will cover its own operating costs. “All of our program fees and sponsorship levels are designed to cover the Recreation Department’s costs for operating those programs and events,” says Jill Daggon, recreation supervisor. “This includes the operational logistics of the 24 weeks of the Farmers’ Market, and all the research, development, marketing, signage, recruitment, etc. needed to make this program successful.” Funds to run the market will not be subsidized through the municipal budget or resident’s tax dollars. “The Recreation Department does not receive tax dollar based funding to subsidize our operation or programming,” explains Daggon. “This is a unique arrangement for a continued on next page

By operating as a Utility, it also allows us to be more quickly responsive to our community’s interests and needs and to interact with our local businesses, service organizations, schools and clubs.” Greenbaum says, “The town doesn’t fund any recreation event, including salaries of the employees, kind of unique in Morris County. The taxpayer doesn’t fund recreation. It’s all user fees. If you want to participate, you pay. We have one of the most active recreation departments,” adds Greenbaum. “The recreation utility benefits everyone. It allows recreation to work outside of a fixed budget. They can plan their own events; it allows them to be more creative and offer a breath of programs.” For more information on the Farmer’s Market or to reserve a vendor’s space, call Daggon at 973-691-0900, ext. 7263; or go to

For fresh items, we wait as close as possible when people shop them." One concern about online shopping has been entrusting others to do their shopping. "There's a certain personalized way that a customer does his shopping," says Berkle. "Our biggest obstacle is to get customers to try it for the first time. People are very skeptical; do I allow someone to pick out my items for me?" At Weis Markets, "we have specially trained associates in each department," says Berkle that know "how to hand select items in that department. They hand select each item. They are taught and trained to select those items as if shopping for their own household family. We're going to pick out the shiniest apple. We're going to pick out the milk with the latest expiration date." Berkle says, "Our associates are specifically trained in each department to pick out the best of what we have. Some like to handpick their things. We take special pride in handpicking what we have to make sure it's the freshest of what we provide. They do take special care. Our associates shop the order as if it's for their own family." "The service has been extremely well received," says Berkle.

he Mount Olive Area Chamber of Commerce will be honoring two of the region's leaders at its Annual Awards Dinner on June 10.

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

By Cheryl Conway ome send flowers, others send cards, but one local woman is hosting a new program in honor of her friend who recently passed away. 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

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 • Tell Them You Saw It In The Mt. Olive News, April 2014, Page 19 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.

Students To Dive Into Science At Summer Camp
The goal of the camp is “to build an awareness of science, technology, math and engineering in the young community,” says Valarie Moore, camp director of STEM. “Science is fun, it’s discovery and it’s exciting. It’s our future. STEM is current, it’s the future. It’s where jobs are headed.” The MO STEM Camp is set to run for two weeks from July 28 to Aug. 1; and Aug. 4 to Aug. 8, from9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Two sessions per day, with one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with different topics will be offered. Campers can sign up for one or two weeks. Cost is $200 per week and includes lunch, as well as free transportation for Mt. Olive residents. Students do not have to live inMt. Olive to enroll. Campers will be broken up by grade level with first/second graders; third/fourth graders; fifth/sixth; and seventh/eighth graders. The activities will be geared to their grade level, with older kids experimenting with rockets while the younger ones will experiment with gardening. The modules offered include: Kite Flying, in which campers will design and fly their own kites; Inventions and Rube Goldberg, in which campers will design machines to perform simple tasks; Summer Sprouts, for first and second graders to visit the Mt. Olive Community Garden to sample pond water, and observe organisms, icky worms, soil and light; and Spy Science, in which campers will solve crime scene mysteries with high-tech spy equipment and forensic tools. The older kids in grades third through eighth will choose from: Drones, Flying Saucers and UFO’s, giving students handson-experience with aerial robots and flying machines; Rocketry, which involves building rockets and launching; Robotics, teaching campers to program robots to perform simple tasks; and On The Trail, which will involve hikes, survival and shelter building skills. Hughes says he is hoping to enroll about 400 campers, with about 25 students per class. Certified teachers with a science background in either science, technology, math or engineering are being hired to help run the camp and teach the students. “For every 100 students we will enroll, we will need four teachers,” says Hughes. “I want to make sure every kid can get something out of it,” stresses Hughes. The district offered camp five or six years ago, but then recreation took over with planning camps throughout the township According to Hughes, the district felt that the best way to offer a camp that focuses on science was to follow district curriculum guidelines. “We could do it better because of our resources. The idea originat-

Students in grades first through eighth do not have to imagine anymore and can experience these real life hands-on-activities at the Innovation Station Mt. Olive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Camp being offered for two weeks this summer at the Mt. Olive Middle School. The camp, unique in Mt. Olive and the surrounding area, is being offered through the Mt.Olive Twp. School District. Camps are nothing new to kids who usually sign up for sports camps or day camps to keep their summers rolling. But a science camp to provide fun, interactive learning experiences to elementary and middle school kids is a way to get them ready and excited about the scientific-world that awaits. “We really want to ramp up our science education,” says Peter Hughes, director of curriculum and instruction for Mt. Olive schools. Having a camp in the summer is a “good opportunity to be exposed to really high curriculum in the summer” while having lots of fun. “The idea is to extend the school year for the kids with an amazing opportunity.”

ed by a very supportive board of education and superintendent,” as part of the district’s plan- Pathways to Excellence. “The district’s plan is to implement new STEM oriented ideas,” from robots to new scientific ideas, explains Dr. Larrie Reynolds, Mt. Olive Twp. superintendent of schools. “We wanted to really emphasize the idea of innovation,” says Hughes. “All of the activities we design get the kids to a higher level of innovation and science to make it more hands on.” One of the goals of the board of education and administration is to increase awareness of STEM careers,” says Hughes. “We believe that is the future of a lot of American industry. We want to make sure our kids are on the forefront.” The district does not intend to make a profit from the camp. All proceeds will be used to run the camp such as the cost for supplies, teachers, transportation and use of the school building. The district is getting four new robots to use for its regular curriculum and will be allocating $50,000 in robotics for the campers to utilize. “We thought it would be great for younger ones to be excited about robots,” continued on next page

continued from previous page says Hughes. The idea is “to help younger ages to like science, to think of it as fun and inspire curiosity,” explains Reynolds. “The kids will be able to make the connection of science and how it will help them in everyday life,” explains Moore, who has taught high school level science to special education classes for the past 12 years. “We want to build that connection. The camp will introduce them to STEM. It’ll peak their interest; it’ll make them more excited; it’ll cause them to want to explore more concepts, more technology, more engineering.” Moore says “if we introduce STEM to them at a young age they will be able to look at it with a positive mind. They’ll look at it as something exciting, something fun. If we can get them interested in science, they might choose this as a career.” The camp is not designed for high school students since they are already being exposed to STEM, robotics and an extensive curriculum at the high school. “The things we have now at the high school can help kids to be innovators and inventors,” says Hughes. Science was the chosen area to explore for the camp because with science, engineering and mathematics, students require that extra time for hands-on activities. “We don’t have too much time during the school year as an enrichment program,” says Reynolds, to fly rockets and go on hikes. Moore adds, “Kids love lab when it comes to science. This is like being in a science lab all day long. You don’t get a lot of chances to make rockets and blast them in the air; to program robots to do what you want them to do, to obey your every command; to go in the wilderness and learn wilderness skills. It will instill a love in a lot of things kids don’t get to experience all the time. “There’s a camp out there for every sport in the world,” says Moore, “but not many for science.” Reynolds concludes, “We’ve started being a cutting edge” school district. “We’d like to set a mark to be the very best,” to be “leaders” who are “forward thinking and innovative.” For more information on the Innovation Station Mt. Olive STEM Camp, go Campers must register by May 15.


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 county’s pothole repair campaign is part of the Freeholder Board’s 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 county’s 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 county’s 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.

Twp. Officials Share Marvelous News with Land Acquisition
Maser approached the planning board five years ago and received preliminary approval for its acquisition of 248 acres of farmland near Flanders Valley Wedding and Banquets. Since then, the engineering firm has gone through the “state permitting process” requiring 17 permits dealing with the state, environmental protection, Highlands council and other agencies. Six of those acres are encumbered by wetlands or steep slopes, says Weiss. On the existing land sits a horse farm, and a horse training facility- known as Marveland Farms- that ceased operation about 10 months ago. Still standing remains a white house, three structures, three barns, an indoor training center and a one-mile sports track. The white house and its three structures will be removed, says Weiss. The plan calls for 227 age-restricted, detached dwellings plus a 4,500 square foot clubhouse recreation area, swimming pool, bocce courts, tennis court and a gated front entrance. There will also be three, three-story buildings containing 57 apartments which are reserved for low and moderate-income households under the Council of Affordable Housing (COAH), which will include a small park and passive recreation area along with a walking path to connect to Flanders Park. According to Weiss, the state requires that 20 percent of a residential development on a major subdivision must be reserved for affordable housing. The remaining 112 acres, which includes some wetlands to not be developed, will go to the township. “This land will be turned over to the township before they put a shovel in the ground,” says Weiss, “before any disturbance begins.” As an added bonus, Maser has agreed to some improvements such as fixing up the Cloverhill Sanitary Sewer Plant on Route 206 in Flanders, says Weiss. Maser engineering also agreed to install a traffic signal at the four-way intersection of Pleasant Hill Rd., Ironia Rd., Main Street and Flanders-Bartley Rd., located near Flanders Crossing and the Flanders Valley Golf Course. Maser has also come up with a solution to improve a drainage problem that has been flooding the backyards of some 34 homes near Mt. View School in the Cloverhill section of Flanders. The builder plans to take the water from the existing Rosewood Ditch and divert it onto his property into a newly storm water management system, explains Weiss. In looking at the whole project, officials are excited. “We’ve been very supportive of the application,” says Greenbaum. “It’s going to create a ratable for the township that’s not going to cause an overcrowding of the school system. It’s an attractive piece of property because of its location across from the golf course and its proximity to the shopping centers. We’re happy it’s moving forward.” Nicastro says, “This is a win win for all as it will generate significant revenue to the township with very low impact to our infrastructure. What I really like about it is that it allows residents of Mt Olive, who are thinking about downsizing, the ability to stay in Mt Olive and belong to an active adult community. I know, speaking for myself with my last child heading to college, this affords me the option to downsize and stay in Mt Olive. Plus the fact that it will be an active adult community will be a benefit to all who live there. “This is a huge benefit to the town,” getting 112 acres, adds Nicastro. “Formally nothing has been discussed but having the ability to use that property to benefit the residents in some fashion will be great,” says Nicastro. “There can be many options for the administration and council to look into and I am sure in the coming months we will take into consideration many ideas and listen to what the needs might be before making any decisions. We have a very qualified staff in town that will look over the property and make some recommendations on what is the best use for the property and the building that currently occupy that property.” There has been some general discussion amongst sporting groups to use the land. “We will look at the budget to see if the town has an interest or if sports clubs want to take an interest in that property,” says Greenbaum. “There is always a need for more fields,” says Nicastro. “With the growing sports programs in the township and limited fields we can always use more space. With the amount of children that participate in so many sports from soccer, baseball, football, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball and others we can always use more fields as the demands increases and more children participate.” Although excited about the additional land to provide opportunities to develop, Greenbaum says “whether it’s recreational, I don’t know yet. We’ve adequately provided for all sporting in the town. Right now we’re not looking to develop any additional facilities,” because of cost and need, “Until we decide there is a need and a will to develop it financially.”

Up at bat, 227 age restricted single family homes; first base, 57 apartments for affordable housing; second base, 112 acres annexed to the township; third base, improvements to a sewer plant building, installation of a traffic light, and cleanup of an annoying drainage problem; homerun, more ratables for the town to offset tax dollars without overcrowding schools. Maser Consulting Co., an engineering firm, received final approval by the Mt. Olive Twp. Planning Board Thursday, March 20, to move forward with its plans on 248 acres of land in the township that it purchased five years ago. Located across the street from the Flanders Valley Golf Course, the major subdivision is known as Marveland Farms, and to township officials the plans are simply marvelous. Besides providing more housing opportunities to seniors and those with moderate incomes, Mt. Olive benefits greatly by getting 112 acres of “useable property.” As with any land purchase in the township, “fifty percent has to be turned over to the township,” as specified in a Mt. Olive Twp. Zoning ordinance, explains Howie Weiss, chair of the Mt. Olive Twp. Planning Board. “Amazingly great” for the township to get 112 acres of land dedicated to them, says Weiss, and “The property is perfectly flat,” requiring “minor work from the township. It is beautiful land that can be used for recreational purposes.” Usage for this land can be endless with ideas floating around from recreation fields, to a state-of-the- art equestrian center to maybe a public swimming pool. This is a “wonderful opportunity,” says Weiss, the “best opportunity since 20 years,” when Continental Properties built Flanders Crossing in 1993, giving the land across the street to the township, which allocated that space for Flanders Park. “We oftentimes get land donated to us, but nothing as significant as we are getting here,” agrees Mt. Olive Twp. Mayor Rob Greenbaum. “It creates a lot of opportunities for the township for future recreational needs. It’s not often that we get that property that has that potential.” Joe Nicastro, vice president of the Mt. Olive Twp. Council, says “The overall project is a win win for the township. The 100 plus acres, the township can use for all residents while keeping open space, makes Mt Olive such an attractive place to live.” In moving forward with the project, Maser Co. will actively pursue sale of the property, and within a year a developer will work with the township engineer for a developer’s agreement.

Old Fashioned Milkmen Spill Strong Delivery Service To Local Area
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 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

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 business with his wife Laura since 1989. “People’s lives are hectic. We’re trying to

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. Frank switched to Byrne Dairy in New York, a small family owned business since continued on next page

Olive News • Like us on facebook continued from previous page 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.”

Old Fashioned Milkmen...

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 continued on next page

continued from previous page 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.”

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.” 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 For questions about delivery or billing, call 908850-3270 or via email at For more information on Shamrock Dairy, call Jim O’Brien at 908-852-8678; or go towww.shamrockdairy.nj. com.

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 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.

Security Choices - You Have Choices When It Comes To Home Security
an option. As the economy worsens, the level of desperation in some people goes on the rise. There are plenty of professional burglars out there, but many amateurs are joining the crime wave, which is why property crime rates are on the rise across the nation. When you choose a wireless home security burglar alarm system to protect your home and your family, you’re choosing the most state-ofthe-art option on the market today. One thing there is no shortage of in the home security burglar alarm market is option and choices. There’s simply no question about the sheer number of choices you’re presented with each and every time you start to shop for a home security system. You can get a simple door and window alarm that attaches easily to door and window frames, and sound an audible alarm when one of the protected doors or windows is opened. This high decibel alarm could be enough to scare off most intruders, especially if they just want to get in and out of your home as quickly as possible with something – anything – of value. However, if a burglar is there to rob you blind, or worse, cause you or your loved ones harm, then you need a much more sophisticated home security system. This is actually the recommended approach versus simple door and window alarms, because you’re assuming a burglar means the worst, which means you’ll be prepared for them no matter their motivation. A wireless, monitored home security system, complete with two-way voice communication and panic pendants is truly the best way to secure your home and protect your loved ones. With a comprehensive home security system, your home and family will be protected around the clock. You will have highly trained home security experts monitoring your home every minute of every day – whether you’re home or not – which means the instant anything goes wrong in your home, emergency dispatch personnel are already alerting your local emergency response units, often faster than you can dial 911. If there ever were good arguments for not having a home security system, they’ve all become meaningless in this modern era. Don’t wait another day to start protecting your family against people who mean you harm. Discover the total benefits of a wireless and monitored home security burglar alarm system.

et’s not fool ourselves about the current state of crime in this country. There’s plenty of danger lurking, and one really doesn’t have to look too far or too hard to find it. You can’t turn on your satellite television news, or even pick up a local newspaper without discovering a story about a robbery, home invasion, or burglary. Sometimes these happen very close to home, and a neighbor or loved one is the victim. Protecting yourself and your family is no longer

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’

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.

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.

MO Girls Run Into Great Program For Emotional Well Being
throughout the United States and Canada. The program came to New Jerseyin 2001, and in Morris County shortly after. The NJ East Chapter consists of about 680 girls in Union, Essex and Morris counties. In Morris County, 10 towns now participate in Girls on the Run with more than 200 girls currently enrolled. Planned in Mt. Olive is a spring season and fall season with girls meeting twice weekly for 70 minutes at Turkey Brook Park with trained coaches. Meeting times have been set for Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.; and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. The program will follow a curriculum with three sessions: Self Care/Self Awareness/Knowing Themselves; Healthy Relationships; and Empowering. While each session will include running, the girls will be so engaged with games, activities, stretching, thinking that the “running” is “kind of disguised,” says Donath, who has served as a coach for Girls on the Run since 2002. “There’s something engaging them mentally,” she says. Life lesson topics are discussed to deal with emotions and empower the girls. In one lesson, girls learn how to be positive when they “are feeling down or feeling blah,” explains Donath. “We do talk about self respect, healthy living, girls stuff,” Donath explains as to why the program is only for girls. “There is a greater need for girls to be empowered with a sense of self-awareness and sense of self achievement, to be strong, to be confident. Girls lack some of those qualities.” The idea of separating the girls from the boys in this club is so “they feel comfortable,” says Donath. It’s a “girls club without judgment. They are very emotional beings. Girls have very specific needs.” Although there are other programs out there for girls that do deal with social, emotional health, Donath says they do not touch on the physical aspect as well. “This focuses on the whole person,” like a Yoga class, which is “not just a workout,” says Donath, who also teaches kids Yoga. With Yoga, participants are learning physical breathing, meditation, and physical thinking. “You are not just treating the physical body. With Girls on the Run, it’s not just about the physical body.” The lessons encompass social, mental, emotional and physical health, she stresses. At the same time, “It’s building the girls’ stamina to do a 5K at the end of the program.” At the end of the 10 week session, the girls will join hundreds of other girls and compete in a regional 5K in Florham Park hosted by the Jaycees. The program is “Great for that sporty girl,” says Donath. “It’s a great compliment to that girl who does a lot of sports, but it’s also great to that girl who is not involved in sports.” Surprisingly, it is the less sporty girls “who are the ones you really see bloom” by the end, says Donath. “You see them come alive because they become so proud of themselves that they can finish. The ones that are saying ‘I can’t’ are saying ‘I can.’” While running is more of an individual sport, with Girls on the Run, the girls run as a team. “Running can be an individual sport,” says Donath, “but the lessons encourage playing games together, bonding together. We encourage them to be interactive with each other.” “They are encouraging each other,” says Donath. “They’re supporting each other. In the program we encourage that, we reward that. The girls transform into a really awesome team. “Some fall in love with running,” want to continued on next page

By Cheryl Conway motions can run high for younger girls but a new program being offered in Mt. Olive will help them keep up the pace with their maturing minds and bodies. Girls on the Run is a new program being offered through Mt. Olive Recreation for girls in grades third through fifth. The nationally known program will run for 10 weeks for its spring season from April through June at Turkey Brook Park in Budd Lake. Besides training their bodies to compete in a 5K race, participants will be engaged in a life-changing, character development program that will empower them in years to come, building their self-esteem and leadership skills. The program “gives them great tools to deal with everyday challenges,” says Laura Donath of New Providence, Morris County director of Girls on the Run. “It’s a very special program,” says Donath, that “focuses on a physical thing, sports, nutrition, but it also helps on the inside stuff, emotionally.” Established in 1998 as a running program that would empower girls, Girls on the Run consists of more than 140 chapters

MO Girls Run...
continued from previous page do more races, run track or join other sports teams like lacrosse or soccer, says Donath. The program is offered to girls before they get in to middle school “to give them tools,” says Donath. At that age, “they’re still interested and impressionable enough to learn the specifics to make good choices.” Parents are given a guide that explains the lessons being taught so they can be supportive at home. A sister program, Girls on Track, for girls in grades sixth through eighth, also exists. Donath says she wants to get off the ground first with Girls on the Run and maybe form Girls on Track in the near future if there is an interest. Cost to participate is $185 for the ten week session. Scholarships are offered through monies raised by fundraising. Sole Mates Fundraising is an adult charity running program that recently participated in a race inMorristown and pledges raised were allocated to the NJ East Chapter of Girls on the Run. The girls also participate in a community project of their choice at the end of each session to raise money for a cause or for the program. Projects have varied from bake sales with proceeds going to an animal shelter, writing letters to soldiers and community service to clean up a park. The lessons learned from the program have been remarkable. “They’ll come away from the program changed,” says Donath. “We inspire girls to be healthy, joyful, confident, respectful to each other. Many parents have said they’ve seen a change in their daughter. This is something for that age range that can encourage girls to not be that mean girl. We reward being supportive of each other.” College graduates who had participated in the program when they were young come back and say “they’ve used what they learned in the program their whole life,” says Donath. “Be kind, thoughtful, be respectful of others, in addition to being strong and physical.” For more information or to register, go to; or contact Laura Donath

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

(Judas), Orson Gale (Phillip), Rick Munoz (Thaddeus), Jason Worthington (Simon the Zealot), Fred Samson (Peter) and Tony Reis (Jesus). As each disciples comes

to the table, he reflects on his relationship with Jesus and asks the agonizing question, “Is it I Lord?” Following the drama, communion will be celebrated. Rev. Tom Kinter, pastor of the church, said

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.”

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, 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. 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. Round out your Easter menu by pairing your ham with classic sides such as oven-
