Our students and mentors enjoyed the
experience, meeting with other teams from
around the country, meeting with elected
officials to discuss STEM Education initia-
tives, says Bodmer.
Autumn Pedersen, rising senior who
joined the robotics team a year ago, says I
decided to go to the National Advocacy
Conference in Washington D.C because I
knew it would be a unique experience to be
able to express my passion and the passion
of my teammates passion for science, tech-
nology, engineering and mathematics to
representatives of our state on Capitol Hill.
I also believe that the promotion of STEM
and STEM education is an extremely
important initiative.
The conference, allowed robotics stu-
dents, ourselves included, from around the
country the opportunity to have their voice
be heard and to make an impact, she says.
Change is not going to happen in the three
short days that the conference lasts, but
change will come if we make the STEM ini-
tiative loud enough.
By attending, students garnered knowl-
edge of the United States government, and
of current education legislation, says
Pederson. We also gained the knowledge
of how to plan, and take control of an offi-

children have come forward
to join the project. Some of
these parents lost adult-aged
children recently or years
ago when I lived here as an
emerging adult. Others lost
their children within recent
months or years. Still, we
are coming together as indi-
vidual s who can support
like no other. All of us have
a common goal and com-
mon bond: that our children
will not be forgotten.
Speaking for myself, its
wonderful to have cama-

Sitting at the Garden is very peaceful.
Some pass by with their dogs on their way
to The Dog Park and I typically hear posi-
tive comments about the Gardens beauty.
Thank you. Sometimes, distant excitement
from the baseball or soccer fields can be
heard and I am reminded of cherished years
with my own children. Of course, the land
around the Garden is still uncultivated. I
have visions of a pathway that meanders
between planned flower gardens as well as
plots of wildflowers.
The spirits of our children travel around
us in the wind and land on the petals and
leaves that we grow in the Garden.

The award, meaning to live is Christ,

importance of the laity and to express grati-
tude and appreciation to those who
unselfishly give of themselves for the build-
ing up of God's kingdom.
I am so absolutely humbled by this
tremendous honor, said Kaufhold. My
parents taught me that the gifts God gave
you are not just to be used for yourself. They
are meant to share to make others' lives bet-
Kaufhold not only is Rosarian president,
but she volunteers regularly at the rectory,

Pederson was impressed by how
incredible it was to see myself and my
teammates have the opportunity to share our
passion with someone who before might
have had no idea how intense robotics is
and how committed students like us are. It
was amazing to have someone on the out-
side to get a glimpse of the life of a robotics
student, and to have them be intrigued by
On the first day of the conference, stu-
dents received a course in U.S. government
101 and listened to two guest speakers:
Whitney Silverman who briefed the teams
on federal education legislative issues; and
Jim Burger, a FIRST lobbyist who spoke
about the FIRST legislative Agenda.
On the second day, teams were preparing
for their upcoming congressional meetings.
Students and mentors were taught how
to conduct a meeting and how to talk about
FIRST, explains Pederson. We were also
briefed on federal education legislation like
the Whole Child, ESEA, IDEA, Title 1, and
Common Core Standards. The goal was
to help teams develop their talking points
so that they would have the ability to walk
into their congressional meetings the fol-
lowing day and have the confidence to take
control of the meeting and present FIRST
and other after school mentor based STEM
programs in a way that would have an
impact on the congressmen we were meet-
ing with.
On Tuesday, teams met with members
from Congress in both the House of
Representatives as well as the Senate repre-
senting their home state. MORT met with
representatives from Governor Chris
Christies office, Congressman Rodney
Frelinghuysens office, Senator Cory
Bookers office, Senators Robert
Menendezs office, and with Congressman
Leonard Lance. During these meetings stu-
dents were given the opportunity to commu-
nicate the mission of FIRST to the con-
gressmen and their representative, as well
as advocate for legislation that may pass
through Congress relating to after-school
mentor based STEM programs like FIRST.
Basically the goal was to convince the
congressman that STEM legislation is
important and worth voting yea for, and to
spread awareness of FIRST and other relat-
ed programs through Capitol Hill, says
Pederson. It was also, as team RUSH put
endless emphasis on, about building rela-
tionships with the congressman from our
When it was concluded, MORT had
successfully completed five official con-
gressional meetings and departed the capi-
tol with greater knowledge of the inner
workings of our nations government.
Bodmer explains how STEM education
must be elevated as a national priority.
Our nations future economic prosperi-
ty is closely linked with student success in
the STEM fields, says Bodmer. The U.S.
must expand the capacity and diversity of
the STEM workforce pipeline.
Policymakers at every level must be
informed about policy issues related to
STEM education. Effective policies to pro-
mote STEM education should be bipartisan
and evidence-based.

These girls participated in Girls on the
Run, a nationally known program that was
offered for the first time by Mt. Olive
Recreation. Seven girls in grades third
through fifth recently completed the first ses-
sion which was held for ten weeks from April
through June at Turkey Brook Park in Budd
The program taught positive lessons to
the young participants, making them stronger
emotionally, socially and physically.
It's a great way for girls to learn about
the importance of being healthy inside and
out, says Carmin Mangone of Flanders, one
of the coaches for Girls on the Run. We sim-
ply ask them to have fun, do their best and be
themselves. And I think the last part was one
of the most important because it's about
building confident young women and letting
them know they can do anything.

Mangone says, We had 20 different les-
sons, including what it means to be a girl on
the run (positive energy); learning about dif-
ferent uncomfortable and comfortable emo-
tions (understanding that there are no bad
emotions but rather uncomfortable); bully-
ing; the importance of good nutrition; how to
deal with conflict; the importance of commu-
nity. A lot of important topics that girls of this
age (grades 3-5) are just learning to deal
Coaches for the program included three
parents and two local women that all loved
the idea of being involved with the program
and wanted to help out the girls in their com-
munity, says Mangone.
One of the challenges coaches faced was
trying to get the girls to open up and express
their thoughts and emotions, explains
Mangone. Some just wanted to do the run-
ning but the coaches kept everything fun and
In addition to running and character-
development lessons, the girls participated in
a fundraiser. They decided to raise money
and supplies for Eleventh Hour Rescue in
We set up shop outside of Petsmart one
Saturday morning for three hours and col-
lected donations in the form of supplies and
cash, explains Mangone. The girls voted
unanimously to raise money for this charity
from a list of five different charities, explains
Established in 1998 as a running program
that would empower girls, Girls on the Run
consists of more than 140 chapters through-
out the United States and Canada. The pro-

eter King, a longtime
member of the Mt.
Olive Area Chamber
of Commerce and its most
recent president, was lauded
at a recent chamber morning
networking event for his
efforts on behalf of the busi-
ness community.
King resigned as president in
early June due to a job
change. Greg Stewart, who
had been the previous cham-
ber president, will take on
the president' role through
the rest of 2014.
King, formerly Director
of Marketing and Sales for
the retirement community,
Paragon Village, has been
involved with the MOACC
since 2005. He spent the last
four years on the MOACC
Executive Board. King has
taken a position at Bristol
Glen, a Continuing Care
Retirement Community in
Newton. Bristol Glen is not
currently a member of the
Mount Olive chamber.
Since January, when King
took over as president, a key
accomplishment has been
Peter King lauded for efforts on behalf of Mt. Olive Chamber of Commerce
expanding the number of
membership positions on
Chamber committees to
encourage more widespread
This was done to ensure
a continuous feed of dynam-
ic, enthusiastic future leaders
to the MOACC leadership
for years and years to come,
said King.
The transition from King
to Stewart promises to be
seamless as the two have
worked together for several
years. Among the many
accomplishments over the
past few years was King and
Stewart's iniation of the
Marketing in the Morning
program, which now attracts
over 50 business people a
month at various locations
around Mount Olive. As
another sign of tremendous
growth over the past four
years, the Mount Olive group
is now the largest local
chamber organization in the
state of New Jersey.
According to King, the
biggest factor in the amazing
rebirth of the MOACC was
meeting Greg Stewart.
Through their shared vision
for what the MOACC could
be and how it could operate, a broad-based
series of outreach efforts, from networking, to
social media, to government relations, were
embarked upon. Through these changes, the
benefits of membership in the MOACC were
solidly enhanced.
"Peter has been a crucial part of the cham-
ber's success," said Stewart. "He has brought
experience and a sense of member involve-
ment that the chamber had been missing for a
long time."
"We have been able to have the MOACC
become more like a business itself," added
King, "by providing networking opportuni-
ties, education and improvement seminars on
how businesses can improve their businesses
and themselves. and through other pro-
For King, a Rockaway Township resident,
moving on from the Chamber is a bittersweet
experience. I was truly torn on leaving
Paragon Village and thus, having to leave the
MOACC, King said. However, King added
that he has made very deep friendships with-
in the MOACC and [is] sure these friendships
will continue for many years.

Spending time at the beach is a popular form of recreation
and keeping cool when temperatures soar. A day of swim-
ming necessitates bringing along supplies, namely towels,
sunscreen and maybe even a bestselling novel. Having a
few dollars on hand also can be beneficial, especially for
those who plan to visit shops or concession stands along the
boardwalk. But keeping your belongings safe at the beach
while you're playing in the water may require a little inge-
Many beachgoers want to enjoy the sand and surf.
However, a select number of people visit the beach hoping
to take advantage of vulnerable people who leave their
valuables unattended. When swimmers wade into the water,
potential thieves may be canvassing the personal belong-
ings swimmers leave behind, so it's best that swimmers take
steps to protect their valuables.
* Do not bring valuable items. It is best to leave expensive
tablets, smartphones and jewelry at home if at all possible.
If you are a beach reader, invest in a paperback for summer
reading and leave your e-reader safely at home. Remove
jewelry before you leave for the shore. Rings, earrings and
necklaces can come off in rough surf and be lost forever.
Flaunting a lot of jewelry could make you a target for theft.
Establish a beach wardrobe of inexpensive attire that won't
be missed if they happen to be stolen.
* Don't advertise what you have. Avoid flashing cash or
credit cards at the beach. Try not to showcase certain items,
such as mp3 players or costly cameras, that you brought
along to the beach.
* Camouflage money. Wallets left behind on the sand
become easy targets. Find ways to keep money and other
belongings out of sight. A good idea is to use an empty sun-
block container as a money holder. Clean it thoroughly and
allow to dry. Cut the container in half or cut the neck of the
bottle enough so you can easily insert cash, phones and
keys. Stashed with other beach supplies, sunscreen will not
look out of place. Women can store money in a sanitary
napkin wrapper as another option. Any container that would
blend in with other beach supplies will suffice.
* Keep cash and cards to a minimum. The beach is not the
place to bring all vital documents and large amounts of
cash. Carry only what's needed, which may include only a
few dollars and a driver's license. Should personal effects
become stolen or get swept away by the waves, it is much
easier to only replace a few items instead of the contents of
an entire wallet.
* Set up camp far from the incoming tide. Sometimes the
incoming surf is a greater danger than potential thieves
patrolling the sand. If the tide is coming in or if the waves
grow rough, clothing, shoes, towels, and other belongings
can be quickly dragged out to sea. It may require a bit of a
hike to the water, but placing blankets, tents and umbrellas
far enough inland on the beach can save your belongings
from being washed away.
Ensure a trip to the beach is a safe and enjoyable venture.
Keep money, keys and other personal effects in mind when
packing for your trip.

omeruns put them on the map, but it
was their character that acted as
their compass.
In their first season since sports returned
to the Mt. Olive Middle School for the
2013-2014 school year, the girls softball
team finished with a Group IV
Championship and a 12-2 record. The
MOMS Girls Softball team competed in the
Greater Morris County Junior School
Conference Athletics from March through
June 7.
Coaches credit the girls hard work, ded-
ication and character for the teams success.
The players started as 17 individuals
and came together as one cohesive unit,
says Karen Lavalley, softball and field
hockey coach at MOMS who also teaches
health and physical education at the school.
Their practices consisted of skill work,
peer teaching and team bonding activities.
Their climb to the top was well earned with
their determination, dedication, persever-
ance and hard work. Effort equals outcome!
These girls are athletes with great char-
acter, continues Lavalley. Their coaches
have stated how they are such a class act on
and off the field. At times of adverse situa-
tions or conditions their character grew
stronger; a true testament that a persons
character does determine ones destiny.
This years team consisted of six eighth
graders; two seventh graders; and nine sixth
graders. Sheri Newton, a social studies
teacher at MOMS served as the assistant
In the start of the tournament, the girls
played Parsippany Central, and won 9-8.
Next they played Brooklawn, the undefeat-
ed team ranked number one.
The first time they faced Brooklawn the
game was cancelled due to inclimate weath-
er, says Levalley. In the second game, they
defeated Brooklawn by the score of 4-2.
The girls played an amazing offensive
and defensive game to stop Brooklawn and
advance to the finals, says Levalley. The
final game they defeated Long Valley to
capture their group IV G.M.C.J.S.C.A.
championship title, the second time in
MOMS school history, says Levalley, who
has been coaching for 27 years.
In 2007, the MOMS Girls Softball team
also won the title with Levalley as the
coach. According to Levalley, the girls
softball team is the only team at the MOMS
to win the county title.
They are great group of girls, contin-
ues Levalley. They are coached very, very
well from early on. With several moving
up, Levalley says these athletes will be

fielding a very strong team at the high
school next year.
Theyre going to change the high
school program, says Levalley. They
were just an amazing group of girls. I could-
nt have asked for a better experience.
The MOMS had been without sports
since 2007 as a result from budget cuts.
Levalley is pleased they have returned.
So many life skills can be taught with
sports, says Levalley, like time manage-
ment, team building and bonding, commu-
nicating and working together,
setting goals, persistence and facing
Offering sports, or even clubs, also
allows students to get involved and can pre-
vent them from feeling isolated which can
put them down a different path.

he Mt. Olive Marauders 8U Travel Baseball team
raised more than $1,000 this season for the teams
benefit thanks to a local restaurant that opened its
Caff Margherita in Budd Lake hosted the fundraiser on
Thursday, April 24, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. About 70 people
enjoyed excellent Italian food while raising funds for
next years travel baseball team.
The 13 players, seven and eight year olds, were asked to
sell tickets to family and friends to attend the dinner. While
the team has had other types of fundraisers in the past, like
bake sales and concession stands, the dinner fundraiser was
this teams first.
Team parents were very grateful to the restaurants sup-
port and cooking the pasta dinner.
Its nice they did this for our kids, says Angela
OToole, mother of one of the baseball players. They
cooked for us; they let us have the room. We didnt have to
bring anything. It saved us money and time. Sometimes it
gets expensive having to rent a hall and the hassle of bring-
ing their own food.
On behalf of our team, thank you, says OToole. It
was great help for our team to raise this money. The $1,000
will be used by the travel team next year to help offset the
costs for uniforms, bags, field costs, empires.

ocal animal shelters rely on the com-
munity to support their needs. So
when National Pet Month came
around, Giant Gymnastics wanted to be that
support. For several weeks, students at
Giant Gymnastics raised money through a
Cartwheel-A-Thon to donate to Eleventh
Hour Rescue. Giant Gymnastics competi-
tive gymnastics team, The Garden Gators,
also took the time to make dog and cat toys
from recycled items to donate to Eleventh
Hour Rescue.
We love to host events like this that get
us involved in the community said co-
owner Jennifer Packard. We feel its
important that our gymnasts not only grow
through gymnastics but by being involved
in the community as well.
Gymnasts took time in class to count
how many cartwheels they could do in 30
seconds. They then had family and friends
pledge money for the cause. The competi-
tive gymnasts brought in old t-shirts, socks,
jeans, soft balls, and other items to create
toys for cats and dogs. Other items such as
pet food were also brought in to give to the
shelter. This year $660.00 was raised, and
over 30 toys were made.
Eleventh Hour Rescue is a volunteer
based, non profit, 501c3 organization that
literally saves dogs and cats from death row.
They rely on the generosity of their volun-
teers to provide loving foster homes for the
dogs and cats pulled from death row in high
kill shelters. They invite the public to
explore their website and humbly offer the
chance to let one of their exceptional ani-
mals touch the hearts of others.
Without the community, Eleventh Hour
couldnt do what they do, and that is to sim-
ply give the animals a chance. Without the
generosity of the public, the animals dont
stand a chance. EHR Director, Stacey
Cudnik stated that volunteers will not stop
until all the cages are empty. We are very
grateful to Giant Gymnastics for being cre-
ative and generous by involving the stu-

programs, exhibits, and preservation advo-
cacy. Interested individuals are invited to

n 1909 Thomas Edison made the fortuitous trip to visit
his good friend Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne
Clemens) along with his friend George Eastman of
Eastman Kodak. They brought along the movie equipment-
Edisons kinetograph camera and Eastman Kodak celluloid
film to record friend Mark Twain and his two daughters at
his final Stormfield home in Redding CT. This film was
going to be part of the story of The Prince and Pauper. In
1909 the technology had not yet been invented for com-
bined audio and video recording. One year later Mark
Twain died at the age of 74. His daughter Jean who
appeared in this movie clip died in 1909 at the age of 29
from a sudden heart attack. This would be the only video
of Mark Twain and the film is now part of the Smithsonian
collection in Washington DC.
Even though in this period of technology could not cap-
ture sound on movie film, voice recordings were available
many years before movie film. In 1891 Mark Twain
attempted to dictate his novella An American Claimant on
Edisons wax cylinders but all 48 recorded cylinders were
lost. Later Twain read his stories with the newly improved
technical quality of the phonograph at the Edison studio in
New York City. However, these finished voice recordings
were stored at the West Orange facility and in 1914 they
were destroyed by fire. The wonderful narrative voice of
Mark Twain that people experienced during his live stage
presentations was lost forever. Actors who got to listen to
his voice did their best at giving impersonations of this dis-
tinctive voice. It is these impersonations that have been
handed down that gives the essence of this famous authors
voice today.
Today we can still replicate the old film technology that
Edison and Eastman had started. The Thomas Edison West
Orange NPS will offer on Sunday, July 27th at 2:00 p.m.
(RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Call 973-736-0550 ext.
89) a special film production event. Participants will use the
technologies and practices originally used by Thomas
Edison in collaboration with MONO NO AWARE.
Workshop participants will re-enact classic kinetoscope
films at the Black Maria with props provided by FilmBiz. .
It will be the same movie production the Edison studios did
in the late 1800s. They will capture short sequences on
black and white reversal film stock. All the films will be
processed on site and presented at a special screening that
will take place at 4:00 p.m. The films will then be scanned
and transferred to HD by DiJiFi for participants to share
with friends and family online. During the workshop, the
cinema arts non-profit MONO NO AWARE will introduce
the celluloid film format created in 1889 by George
Eastman that allowed Thomas Alva Edison to develop the
motion picture camera in 1891. It was a partnership and
friendship that gave way to the birth of motion pictures in

his is the stunningly gorgeous, playful, and sweet
Andy from Eleventh Hour Rescue. Andy's foster
mom has nursed him back to health from a hip frac-
ture which put him on death row. He has proven to be lov-
ing, loyal and wonderful with all people and other dogs.
Andy is approximately a year old and still very much a pup.
He loves toys and playing with other dogs. Andy is still
learning his manners but has mastered a few commands and
is very smart. He is house and crate trained. He also takes
treats nicely.
Andy will make a wonderful addition to a family but
may do better in a home with older children and larger
canine playmates since he doesn't realize his own size (68
lbs.) and strength. To read more about Andy, and to see all

ummer is peak strawberry season and
the perfect time to enjoy one of
Americas favorite fruits.
While available year-round, California
strawberries are most plentiful from May
through August with the state producing
nearly 90 percent of strawberries grown in
the entire country. Not only are strawberries
delicious, these pretty red gems also offer
many health benefits. In fact, eating just
eight medium size strawberries a day may
improve heart and brain health, lower blood
pressure and reduce the risk of some can-
Sweet additions
California strawberries are versatile,
making them ideal additions to summer
Fresh, seasonal ingredients bring fla-
vorful bursts to recipes at my restaurants
and home, said Brian Malarkey, celebrity
chef, restaurateur and spokesperson for the
California Strawberry Commission. I love
incorporating the natural taste of strawber-
ries in both sweet and savory dishes for an
unexpected hint of sweetness.
From fresh fish and salads to lemonade
and even barbecue sauce, just add strawber-
ries to give any meal scrumptious summer
flavor. For additional recipes by Chef

rom weekend backyard barbeques to
spontaneous weeknight gatherings,
summer is filled with celebrations that
bring friends and family together for fabulous
food, drink and fun. Whether youre unsure
of what wines to serve as the host, or the best
refreshment to pick as a guest, you dont have
to be a master sommelier to choose the per-
fect wine pairing for every meal or occasion.
As a general rule, nature has color-coded
foods with the wines best suited for their fla-
vors. For example, white wines pair well with
light foods, while dark wines usually comple-
ment richer fare. Here are some more specif-
ic scenarios to help you enjoy the warm
weather and good times ahead this summer.
Wedding Showers and Celebrations
Long summer days are a great time to cel-
ebrate big life events like wedding show-
ers and house-warming parties. Because
many of these soirees include an assortment
of foods, there are several routes you can take
to discover the perfect wine pairing. For
guests enjoying fresh, fruit salad or tilapia
with a mango salsa, consider an herbaceous
sauvignon blanc which will complement the
fruit flavors with its crisp acidity. For those
who prefer a more floral wine, a viognier may
be the answer to go alongside any grilled
chicken or seafood dish.
Summer Barbeques and Daytime Events
If a sunny, mid-day get together is in your
future, there is one delicious pairing option to
consider. For hosts who plan to serve a grilled
selection, such as pork chops or saucy, smoky
ribs, consider pairing the menu with an
expressive and fruit forward red blend.
Kendall-Jackson AVANT Red Blend offers a
silky and smooth texture that begins with fer-
mentation in neutral oak barrels to bring out
rich, fruit flavors. A sultry mosaic of French
varieties, the wine focuses on Syrah and
Malbec with aromas of ripe raspberry and
bold black cherry. Hints of spice and dark
chocolate deliver a smooth, lingering finish,
so this red blend will also complement a
grilled steak or any other red meat favorite.
No matter what festivities are booked on
your summer calendar, this season is full of
delightful sips for every event. For more ideas

hat do you reach for around 3 in
the afternoon? Something salty?
Something crunchy? Something
creamy, smooth and sweet? These days,
more and more snackers are looking for
something wholesome and satisfying to get
them through the afternoon.
Heres one snacking choice you may not
have thought of: pudding. When pudding is
made right just the way your grandma
used to its made with real ingredients
like milk and eggs, cooked slowly until its
creamy and delicious. While cooking up
your own pudding is a fun and satisfying
weekend or evening project, when you need
a quick afternoon snack, thats probably not
in the cards.
Fortunately, there are still some compa-
nies making pudding just the way you
would at home, slowly simmered to perfec-
tion. This is great news for people who want
a smooth and creamy snack they can feel
good about. Theres a good reason why sim-
ple, comforting pudding was a favorite
childhood snack and is still a wholesome
snack choice today.
Simple Ideas for a Delicious Snack
Pudding is perfect straight out of the
refrigerator, of course, and all you need to
enjoy it is a spoon. But you can make it your
own with other ingredients that you proba-
bly have right in your kitchen. Take a look
at your spice rack: Youve probably got cin-
namon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. In your
pantry, youve got crunchy cookies, pretzels
and nuts. Fresh and frozen fruit are always
good to have on hand. Even canned and
shelf-stable packs of tropical fruits can top
your pudding. Before you know it, youll be
seeing surprising pudding pairings every-
where you look.
With a little creativity, you could have a
unique pudding snack every day of the
week. Weve got a few ideas to get you

efore your family begins enjoying the great out-
doors during this adventure-filled season, make sure
your yard is properly treated to avoid the dangers of
poison ivy, oak or sumac.
Learn the proper steps to keep the threat of poisonous
plants away from your family and property. Ashton Ritchie,
Lawn & Garden Expert and Author offers this expert advice
for protecting your family:
Locating the danger
Keeping your family safe begins with proper identifica-
tion of these harmful, rash-producing plants. In the right
environment, poisonous weeds can grow and spread quick-
ly. Using a photo or resource like can
help identify the various poison weeds and their stages
(Poison Ivy often emerges red and only starts to turn green
in late spring). Survey your yard once a month, keeping a
close eye on these common areas:
Ground Cover: A common area for poison ivy is along
the edge of a wooded area or around any shaded and less
maintained section of the yard.
Trees: By disguising itself as part of a tree limb, poison
ivy often climbs up trees situated in shady locations.
Edges: If you find that poison ivy continues to invade
your outdoor space year after year, you may be experienc-
ing the edge effect, a phenomenon that occurs when the
wooded areas surrounding your yard dry out. Various weeds
flourish under such conditions.
Stumps: Dead stumps are also a common hangout for
these harmful weeds.
Eliminate the threat
Once you have determined where the poison ivy is locat-
ed, you can work to remove it from your surroundings.
Look for a weed-eliminating product that works double-
duty, such as Roundup Poison Ivy Plus Tough Brush
Killer, which penetrates the waxy surface of poison ivy,
oak, sumac, kudzu and other tough weeds, while also
killing at the roots.
Wear protection
Before contact with these poisonous plants, always wear
the proper clothing and protection. Be sure to cover your
hands with thick, long gloves and wear a long sleeved shirt
and pants in case you accidently touch the plants.
Choose the right time
Always choose a calm, wind-free day for applying prod-
ucts to avoid contact with other desirable plants in your
yard. If you can, it is best to apply with a temperature above
60 degrees F.
Ways to Protect Your Family Outdoors
Apply a weed-killing solution
Spray a specialized weed killer, such as Roundup
Poison Ivy Plus Tough Brush Killer on the leaves until sat-
urated, taking care not to apply to nearby trees, grasses and
desirable plants. You should always read and follow label
Wait for the plant to completely die
Perennial weeds such as poison ivy may take 4 or more
weeks for a complete kill, so be patient and follow the
directions on the specialized weed killer packaging.
Regularly monitor surroundings
Keep new weeds from growing by surveying your out-
door areas at least once a month throughout the busy weed-
growing months of May through November.
With proper application and monitoring, your family can
enjoy all the outdoor fun without the worry. For more tips
and tricks, visit
