or the close-knit community of
Randolph, the summer of 2014
began like any other summer, with a
break from school for students and warm,
relaxing, sunny days. However, tragedy
struck early in the summer when two rising
seniors at Randolph High School were
killed in a single-vehicle accident. The stu-
dents, both passengers in the back seat of
the vehicle, were killed instantly when the
driver lost control and ran off the road. The
tragedy left a devastating and tremendous
impact on Randolph and its high school, as
well as neighboring towns.
After the tragic event, community members
rallied together to honor the memories of
the students who were killed in the accident
while taking action to prevent such a
tragedy in the future. Fellow classmates
helped create the Verduga Timmerman
Scholarship Fund to honor fellow class-
mates who display exceptional qualities
such as responsibility, leadership, school
spirit, respect from peers and staff and high
Jeff Feldstein, owner of Down to the
Bone restaurant on Route 10 in Randolph,
wanted to raise awareness of the accident
and encourage prevention in his own way.
On November 2, Feldstein and other com-
munity members will hold a wing chal-
lenge at 2 PM in Down to the Bone's park-
ing lot. The challenge will raise money for
the students' scholarship fund, which pro-
vides 20 percent of all proceeds to the fam-
ilies of the students who were killed and 60
percent to the Verduga Timmerman
Scholarship Fund and the Alive at 25 pro-
Alive at 25 is a driver's awareness
course designed by the National Safety
Council for young drivers ages 15 to 24.
The course includes a defensive driving
classroom curriculum along with decision-
making and responsibility-taking. The pro-
gram's goal is to reduce the number of traf-
fic accidents each year among younger
drivers, which account for 44 percent of
teen deaths in the country.
The wing challenge takes place on the
same weekend as the highly anticipated
Roxbury versus Randolph football game.
The two towns have long been rivals, espe-
cially when it comes to football. Feldstein
notes that this year, however, the rivals are
coming together for a common cause,
which is to raise money for the scholarship
fund and the Alive at 25 program.
Feldstein explains that he felt compelled
Local Communities Show Support for Randolph after Summer Tragedy
to participate in the event to help "raise
awareness and tell people that it's time to
do something," and that, " are getting
into major trouble at a very young age and
don't realize that it affects their lives." He
emphasizes that although the tragedy "has
hit a lot of people," the goal is to make the
fundraising event enjoyable while sending
an important message to community mem-
When the event is over, Feldstein hopes
participants to take away an important mes-
sage. He explains, "I want people to realize
that we are all part of the same family,
regardless of town or rivalries, and that just
because this tragedy has impacted one town
doesn't mean that it can't touch the lives of
others." He wants the message to resonate
through households in Randolph and sur-
rounding towns, motivating students and
parents to further the effort to prevent some-
thing like this from happening in the future.

s winter temperatures drop, the poten-
tial for higher utility bills goes up.
Taking steps ahead of the cold season
can help you trim costs and make your home
more energy efficient, keeping those utility
bills in check even as the winter weather
Many homeowners just assume the win-
ter season means their bills will go up as sys-
tems work harder to keep their home regulat-
ed, said Francois Lebrasseur, marketing
manager of water products for GE
Appliances. In reality, there are many steps
one can take to improve energy efficiency and
minimize the added expense that comes with
extreme winter temperatures.
According to the U.S. Energy Information
Administration, electricity costs are on the
rise. Before winter weather sets in for your
part of the country, take some time to assess
your home for potential problem areas and
improvements that can help lower your ener-
gy costs.
Lighting. Though turning off unneeded
lights is a smart strategy any time of year, its
especially helpful during the winter months
when utility expenses can add up. New tech-
nology from GE Lighting lets you manage
your lights away from home handy if youre
gone for the day and realize lights were left
on. GE Link Connected LED lights can be
adjusted using an app on your smartphone.
These energy-efficient LED lights also will
come in handy if youre away from home for
an extended period or traveling over the holi-
days, as you can turn specific lights on to give
the appearance that someone is home so you
can vacation worry-free. If you replace a 60-
watt incandescent light bulb with a 12-watt
GE Link LED bulb, you would save $132
over the life of the bulb at an electricity rate of
$0.11 per kWh.
Water heaters. Heat isnt the only system
that gets an extra workout come winter.
Cooler house temperatures may require water
heaters to work harder, so ensuring you have
a model well-suited to your familys year-
round needs is key. In fact, heating water is
the second source of energy use in the resi-
dential home after space heating and cooling,
with standard electric water heaters costing
the average homeowner $585 every year to
operate. One energy-efficient option is the 50-
gallon GE GeoSpring hybrid electric water
heater, which can save the average household
$365 every year (using 1514 kWh per year
and national average electricity rate of 12
cents per kWh) compared to a 50-gallon stan-
dard electric water heater (using 4646 kWh
per year), as based on a test comparison.
GeoSpring also offers features such as vaca-
tion mode, which lowers the water tempera-
ture during a trip, then reenergizes itself the
day before the homeowners return.
Keep Winter Energy Bills in Check
Thermostat. A programmable thermostat
is easy to install and saves energy (and
money) by automatically adjusting to pre-
determined temperature settings. This allows
you to drop the temperature during the day
when no one is home, but have a comfortable
environment ready when you arrive home
from work each day. Depending on the model
you choose, you can select numerous settings
to adjust your indoor climate for various days
to fit your lifestyle patterns. According to
ENERGY STAR, when used properly, a
programmable thermostat can save as much
as $150 a year in energy costs.
Air leaks. An airtight house is critical to
managing your heat-related expenses. You
take time to close windows and doors to pre-
vent heat from escaping, but thats only half
the battle. Sealing cracks around those win-
dows and doors, and other leak-prone areas
such as the basement and attic, will help keep
heat inside and costs down.

energy-efficient savings tips and products,

rgan and tissue donation affords men
and women a unique opportunity to
help others. Although the laws vary
depending on where a person lives, many per-
sons age 18 or older can indicate their desire
to be organ donors. Younger people must
have a parent or guardian's consent. Physical
condition will dictate if a person can donate,
although people with a previous medical con-
dition may still be suitable donors. According
to the United States Department of Health
and Human Services, each organ and tissue
donor has the potential to save or improve the
lives of as many as 50 people. Organs and tis-
sues eligible for donation include the heart,
pancreas, lungs, liver, kidneys, intestines,
cornea, skin, connective tissues, and bone
marrow, among others. In the United States,
donors can register with a state donor registry
or designate their decisions on their driver's
licenses. Canadians can visit to

landers resident Millene Michel
knows what it's like to battle
against breast cancer, from the time
of diagnosis through the various treatment
options and recovery. For Millene, Studio
Director of Theater Dance Center, her
inspirational blog called "The Trials of a
Woman with Breast Cancer," has helped
her become a 2014 Industry Dance
Award's "Circle of Hope" recipient.
The "Circle of Hope" charity campaign
fund provides dancers who are currently
battling or who have survived breast can-
cer a chance to share their courageous
journey and inspire others to keep the hope
alive. Millene was one of eight total recip-
ients to receive this year's "Circle of Hope"
award. The award is specifically dedicated
to cancer survivors within the dance com-
munity who are working to create aware-
ness, save lives, raise money, and fight
cancer in any way possible.
For Millene, the life-altering news
came in the late summer of 2014, when it
was revealed that she had breast cancer. As
a long-time mentor to young teenagers and
a teacher to many, she began to reach out
to encourage other women to help them
understand the importance of prevention
and to be proactive in the fight against
breast cancer.
After starting dancing at the age of

three and being a professional dancer for
10 years, Millene opened the Theater
Dance Center in 1991 along with business
partner Mary Ellen Volz. Part of their busi-
ness includes running a competition team,
which began a benefit performance to take
a stand against cancer in 2010. Just one
month after the benefit was started,
Millene received her breast cancer diagno-
sis, followed by a double mastectomy in
2010 and chemotherapy treatment in early
From the time of her diagnosis through
the treatment and recovery phases, Millene
received lots of support from fellow
dancers, including her own students.
Ultimately, the dance team raised thou-
sands of dollars to help Millene with
health-related expenses.
Her dedication to stressing the impor-
tance of being proactive in terms of health
and starting a blog related to her experi-
ences battling cancer led Millene to earn
the award. She explained, "Being a breast
cancer survivor, I wanted to help other
women diagnosed with breast cancer,
whether it was through counseling, being a
shoulder to cry on, giving advice about my
experiences and sharing what it's like to go
through the process." Millene notes that
her constant work with teen girls was espe-
cially useful in reaching out to a younger
audience. "By having this experience, I am
able to turn it into a positive situation by
trying to influence other young women to
be proactive and maybe even avoid having
to undergo a mastectomy or chemotherapy
following a breast cancer diagnosis."
Although she could not attend the
awards ceremony held on September 10 in
Los Angeles, Millene was humbled to
share the honor with other standout cancer
survivors. Making the ceremony even
more noteworthy was the appearance of
Hollywood celebrities such as Paula
Abdul, Shane Harper and Olivia Holt.

ictorian Cameos have a timeless
quality that distinguishes them
from other jewelry. The Morris
County Historical Society offers insight
into Victorian cameos and their allure dur-
ing a special lecture on Sunday, October
26 starting at 1:30 p.m. at Acorn Hall.
During the lecture, guest speaker Nancy
Cooper, a MCHS volunteer and former
Board member, shares her extensive
knowledge of Victorian cameos, and will
display examples of cameos from her per-
sonal collection. Wearing cameos as an
accessory was popularized by Queen
Victoria. Then as now, cameos are appre-
ciated for their beauty, and admired for
their art and craftsmanship. Cameo art
originally came from an ancient tradition
of carving a relief image of contrasting
color into semi-precious stones. A selec-
tion of hand-crafted cameo pieces are
available for purchase after the lecture, in
the Society's Oak Leaf Gallery Gift Shop.
The cost to tour Acorn Hall and attend the

lecture is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and
$3 for students. Children under age 12 are
Free. The admission price may be applied
toward membership with the MCHS.

he symptoms women feel when suf-
fering a heart attack are often differ-
ent than those exhibited by men.
According to Jeanette Yuen, M.D., a cardi-
ologist at New York's White Plains
Hospital, women's heart attack symptoms
can be so mild that women may mistakenly
believe they are suffering from a more
innocuous medical issue, such as acid
reflux or even the flu. But symptoms such
as nausea, cold sweats and radiating pain in
the stomach are recognized by the
American Heart Association as possible
indicators of a heart attack in women, and
these signs should not be written off as
signs of a cold or stomach ailment, as
women are at risk of heart disease and heart
attack despite the misconception that such
ailments are exclusive to men. Women at
risk for heart disease and heart attack
include those with a family history of heart
disease; female smokers; female diabetics;
women with high cholesterol and/or high
blood pressure; and women who are post-
menopausal, physically inactive orover-
weight. Women, particularly those over 50,
who begin to feel physical discomfort in
their chest or any of the aforementioned
symptoms should consult their physicians

American Budo Kai, a Martial Arts
Association which is over 40 years
old and consists of over 10 locations,
launched its newest school, located at 16
Old Brookside Road in Randolph NJ, the

was hosted by the associations newest Head
Instructor, Mr. Daniel Hopler, and one of its
directors, Joan Felenczak.
The Grand Opening Open House fea-
tured free trial classes, refreshments, raffles
and prizes, gifts, numerous demonstrations,
and a special anti-bullying seminar, and was
attended by numerous residents of Randolph
and the surrounding communities as well as
over a dozen of the Associations Black
Belts. It was a great opportunity to not only
provide fun and entertainment for the fami-
lies of Randolph, but to also have a number
of kids and teenagers get a chance to try out
some traditional martial arts training, said
Long Time Martial Arts Association Launches New School in Grand Fashion
the schools Head Instructor, Daniel Hopler.
The Open House was well received by all
of the families who attended and the school
has been a hit with parents. We have tried
many karate studios, but the Randolph
Martial Arts Academy is really the best we
have encountered so far. The Randolph
Martial Arts Academy staff pay attention to
each and every student and are very enthusi-
astic about instruction. The whole ambience
of the studio is very encouraging. The floor
space is big and very clean. Our daughter
really enjoys it. There is a lot of competition
out there, but we heartily recommend the
Randolph Martial Arts Academy studio.
Where your children train for karate can
make a very big difference. We really
believe that this is the best bang for the

or some, the thoughts
of ghosts and paranor-
mal activity only occur
around Halloween.
However, for the New Jersey
Ghost Hunters Society
(NJGHS) , studying the para-
normal is something done
year around.. The North
Jersey Division of the
NJGHS meets monthly at the
Hackettstown Community
Center. The founder/direc-
tor of the NJGHS is LAura
Hladik Hoffman of

who is the author of

the society is Dina Chirico of
Since I was a child I had
experienced things that
seemed out of the norm,
which I only found out later.
I thought everyone experi-
enced this stuff. As I had got-
ten older, my thirst for
answers became more, and
so I met L'Aura in 1998 and
began attending NJGHS
meetings and it just grew
from there. I am always
learning and studying, said
Chirico in explaining what
drew her into paranormal
The NJGHS researches
and documents paranormal
activity in hopes to have a
better understanding of the
other side and to have
proof to back up that under-
standing. Hoffman
explained that the group is
happy to have opportunities
to go into peoples home to
investigate other worldly
activity and there is no
charge for their investiga-
Chirico noted that she has
been on hundreds of such
everything from pri-
vate residences,[to] public
establishments/ businesses,
public events, private events,
personal investigations and
more. One case that immedi-
ately comes to mind was an
apartment above an antique
store in Morris County.
There were both positive and
negative occurrences,
according to the residents.
There were shadow people,
full body apparitions, items
being moved, name calling,
doors closing, residual activ-
ity and much more. Not to
mention a full length mirror
that served as an active por-
tal. I had a few personal
experiences which could not
be explained by organic

this place several times.
As for memorable local
investigations, those include
a 2006 Ghost Conference
was held in Hackettstown.
That night both Chirico and
Hoffman investigated the
restaurant, Charlie Browns (
now Bea McNally's). There
were various versions of the
story of a drowning in a bath-
tub when the structure was a
hotel. Although there was no
significant activity recorded
the night they were there,
Hoffman noted that she was
told that the exact location of
the bathtub was not usually
readily disclosed, for fear of
spooking the busboys who
lived there.
Chirico also shared, Ive
investigated a few private
residences and a dorm room
in one of the newer halls at
Centenary College. In refer-
ence to the dorm room, the
student had been experienc-
ing some significant activity,
such as physical manifesta-
tions (i.e. getting hit/
punched), temperature
changes and movement.
For these paranormal
investigators, ghost hunt-
ing is not a once a year
experience. However, what
does a ghost hunters society
do for Halloween?

shared Hoffman
While ghost hunting may
sound exciting, Hoffman
shared a few cautions to
those considering going out
on their own:
Please ghost hunt
responsibly. Never go alone
and always get permission
before investigating a ceme-
tery or grave yard. The
NJGHS has protocols in
place to safeguard its mem-
bers, the home/business
owners whose places we
investigate, and the evidence
And please learn to pro-
tect yourself in whatever
ways feel comfortable, such
as prayer, shielding, energy or
other ways. Provoking spirits
is never a good idea and nei-
ther is inviting them home
with you, since you really do
not know who, or what, will
accept your invitation.

ame night, girls night or family
reunion your home serves as the
backdrop for many occasions.
Preparing your space for friends and family
can feel like a heavy undertaking, but with
a few simple entertaining tips, hosts can
wave goodbye to anxieties.
Pre-Guest Prep. Greet your guests with
a warm welcome by preparing appetizers
and drinks beforehand. Plan for ten bite-
sized portions per guest like bacon-
wrapped dates or stuffed mushrooms that
are visually enticing, but not intimidating.
More importantly, rehearse the recipe
beforehand. No host should spend the party
in the kitchen experimenting on a first-time
Space Is Key. Be mindful of how your
home coincides with the theme of your
party. Game day? Have plenty of seats in
front of the screen and a sideline lounge
for those who prefer to socialize. Girls
night? Dont stress about chairs. Encourage
guests to congregate in various areas like
a choose your own fruit sangria bar.
Overflow Free. The bath is one of the
highest-traffic areas during game day or the
holidays and most peoples top bathroom
concern is the fear of toilet overflow, espe-
cially in someone elses home. Consider a
Delta toilet with FlushIQ technology, which
offers overflow prevention and leak detec-
tion, and boasts a touch-free sensor, elimi-
nating the need to touch a dirty handle.
Less Is More. Save money and lighten
your to-do list by simplifying tasks. For
example, when hosting a dinner, choose a
simple candle display instead of extrava-
gant flowers. When preparing for the holi-
days, fill a glass bowl with holiday orna-
ments or venture outside for pinecones,
which can serve as a fresh and festive cen-
Clean As You Go. Clear your dishwash-
er before the party and rinse dinnerware
throughout the evening to avoid a messy
kitchen. A Delta faucet with Touch2O
Technology makes it easy to start and stop
the flow of water with a simple tap any-
where on the handle or spout a perfect
accessory for quick and easy cleaning.
Whether youre ramping up for game
day or holiday cocktails with the in-laws,
the entertaining season can be made much
easier with a few simple adjustments. For

ewel Crawford Ajibade, Linda Carey
and Priscilla Dzurich Ribera are just
three of the estimated 173,000 women
in the United States who are living with
metastatic breast cancer. Managing an
incurable disease is challenging for them,
but each takes a unique approach to living
with the condition.
There is no right way to battle metasta-
tic breast cancerjust your way, says
Ajibade, who was diagnosed with metastat-
ic breast cancer (the most advanced stage)
in 2006 and lost her mother to the disease.
Since her diagnosis, Ajibade has become
an advocate for women living with metasta-
tic breast cancer through Living Beyond
Breast Cancer (LBBC) and a passionate
believer in the power of sharing ones
storya method that has helped her cope
with her own reality.
I have connected with stories from sev-
eral women throughout my journey, and I
want to share that sense of community with
others, says Ajibade. You never know
how many lives youll impact by speaking
To help create awareness of metastatic
breast cancer, Ajibade is encouraging
women to participate in the nationwide
#MBCStrength photo-sharing cam-
paign. Women with metastatic breast
cancer can post their photos on
Twitter using the hashtag
#MBCStrength to illustrate the
word that unites each of them
in their journey: strength.
Photos posted on Twitter
with #MBCStrength will
be considered for a dis-
play inTimes Square on
October 13, 2014,
Metastatic Breast Cancer
Awareness Day.
People often wonder
what its like to live with
metastatic breast cancer. By
participating in this cam-
paign, we have the opportu-
nity to showcase not just our
challenges but also the love
and support that guide us through our jour-
neys, says Ajibade.
Ajibades personal account is also fea-
tured at, an educa-
tional website tailored for women with
metastatic breast cancer developed by
AstraZeneca with input from breast
cancer advocacy organizations
LBBC and Metastatic Breast
Cancer Network. Her story is
featured alongside that of
Carey, who draws strength
from expression through art
and involvement in The Tutu
Project, and Dzurich Ribera,
whose personal source of
inspiration is her family.
Its important to not
hold in your feelings. You
have to find some avenue
to express them, says
Carey, who was diag-
nosed with metastatic
breast cancer in 2006.
Carey and her husband,
Bob, created The Tutu
Projecta collection of
photos in which he wears a pink tutuas a
form of self-therapy. The project has res-
onated with many people around the globe
and, 11 years later, the couple continues to
raise funds for women with breast cancer
and receive expressions of gratitude for the
laughter their photos bring.
Following her metastatic breast cancer
diagnosis, Dzurich Ribera feared that others
would define her by her condition. While
having her blood drawn one day, she shared
this concern with another woman in treat-
ment at the facility.
I was desperately looking for a role
modelsomeone who was doing well in
spite of living with metastatic breast can-
cer, says Dzurich Ribera. I shared that
feeling with her and she replied, You have
to be your own positive story. I know she
was right and, through the ups and downs,
that has always stuck with me.
Ajibade, Carey and Dzurich Ribera are
connected in their determination to help
redefine what it means to live with metasta-
tic breast cancer. Having helped many
women through her advocacy work,
Ajibade advises, Each person living with
metastatic breast cancer will find her own
methods of coping, but one of the first steps
we can take in this journey is to open up and
share our stories.

orris County EduCare in
Succasunna is sponsoring a Fall
Festival complete with a huge
garage sale and the largest Halloween
Parade ever in Roxbury all to benefit The
Dylan Flinchum Rock On Foundation.
The Dylan Flinchum Rock On
Foundation was established to help pro-
vide love and support to Mike and Melissa
(Larsen) Flinchum and their beautiful
three year old son, Dylan.
Shortly after Dylans second birthday,
he began to experience difficulty walking.
After being referred to several medical
specialists (including some of the top neu-
rosurgeons in the country at Cornell
Medical Center in NYC) it was deter-
mined that Dylan had a condition known
as Chiari malformation. Dylan underwent
surgery in the spring and was expected to
make a full recovery.
After several weeks of physical therapy,
Dylan was not progressing as expected and
began to show symptoms that were unrelat-
ed to the malformation. A follow up MRI
was completed and doctors were shocked
to significant change in Dylan's white brain
matter. After getting the initial diagnosis
from Cornell, Mike and Melissa traveled to
the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia
(CHOP) where it was confirmed that Dylan
is suffering from a degenerative disease
known as metachromatic leukodystrophy,
often referred to as MLD.
The Dylan Flinchum Rock On
Foundation has been created as we all
want to help ease just some of the burden
Mike and Melissa are facing so that they
can devote all their time and effort on
Dylan. This October, Morris County
EduCare in Succasunna will be hosting the
garage sale and Halloween Parade with all
proceeds going to the foundation.
To prepare for the event, EduCare has
started collecting donations for the sale.
They can not accept mattresses, couches,
recliners, car seats, drop down side cribs
and any broken items that can not be
resold. All donations can be brought to
Morris County EduCare at 77 Sunset Strip
in Succasunna. Final drop off will

human beings made candy out of honey by drying it and
forming a taffy-like confection, while many modern incarna-
tions of candy involve dissolving sugar into water or milk to
form a syrup. Candy is then made by varying the temperature
of the syrup and the sugar concentration to achieve desired
textures. The word "candy" is derived from the Arabic "quan-
di," meaning "made of sugar."
Candy also often refers to chocolate bars and other treats
that people find so delectable. Ancient Mayans and Aztecs
were the first to experiment with the cocoa bean, the corner-
stone of chocolate confections, in the 1500s. However, their
chocolate drinks were bitter and not the sweet delights we've
come to associate with chocolate. It wasn't until the 19th cen-
tury that innovators began mixing cocoa with sugar to create
chocolate bars. Joseph Fry is credited with making the first
chocolate bar in 1847, using bittersweet chocolate. Milk
chocolate came later, in 1875, when it was introduced by
Henry Nestl and Daniel Peter. Milton Hershey began pro-
ducing sweet chocolate in 1894.
Hershey bars, Nestl bars and many other original candies
are still in production today. Tootsie Rolls and Charleston
Chews are other classic candies still produced. Good &
Plenty debuted in 1893, making it the oldest branded candy
in America. NECCO company Wafers were officially brand-
ed in 1901 and are another classic treat consumers can still
find in the candy aisle of their nearest grocery store.
Smarties is another candy that's bound to show up in trick-
or-treat bags this Halloween. Smarties have been owned and
operated by the same family since 1949. The Ce De Candy
Inc. factory opened up in August 1949 in Bloomfield, NJ, and
produced a candy that would not melt in the heat. Smarties
are a favorite all over North America and elsewhere. When
demand is too high for the NJ factory, particularly around
Halloween, Smarties are also produced in a Canadian facto-
ry in Newmarket, Ontario. Smarties imported to the United
States are still called Smarties. However, Smarties sold in
Canada are known as "Rockets," as another candy sold in
Canada already bears the Smarties name.
Halloween wouldn't be nearly as sweet without troves of
candy treasures. Children are urged to have their candy sort-
ed and inspected by parents prior to eating to avoid any dan-
gers, such as food allergies or tampering.
Sweet, Sweet Candy History
he tradition of jack-o'-lanterns began in Ireland and
Scotland, and pumpkins were not the first gourd of
choice to use as lanterns. Turnips and rutabagas were
often used because of their availability. When Irish immi-
grants migrated to America, they brought their jack-o'-lantern
traditions with them. Turnips were not as prevalent on this
side of the Atlantic, so carvers turned to pumpkins, which
were larger and easier to carve. Jack-o'-lanterns get their
name from Irish folklore, particularly a character named
Jack. Jack liked to drink and couldn't pay his pub tab, mak-
ing a deal with the Devil for his soul to cover the pub fee.
Jack agreed, but he tricked the Devil to get away with his soul
and captured the Devil. Jack agrees to free the Devil if he
makes a new deal that the Devil can't ever have his soul.
Years pass and Jack eventually dies. Because of his poor
lifestyle, he is not material for heaven, and Jack is once again
reunited with the Devil. Because the Devilremembers he can-
not have Jack's soul, Jack is forced to roam the twilight world
forever as a lost soul. The Devil gives Jack a few embers to
burn to light the way, which Jack stores in a hollowed-out
turnip. Eventually these lanterns, used to keep scary spirits at
bay, were called jack-o'-lanterns.

Mouthwatering Pork Stew
1/2 cup dry sherry or apple juice
Chopped fresh cilantro
Saffron rice:
2 cups long-grain white rice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed saffron threads
For stew, heat 2 tablespoons oil in large
Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season
pork with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 tea-
spoon pepper. In batches, without crowding
(and adding more oil as needed) add pork
and cook, turning occasionally, until
browned on all sides, about 6 minutes per
batch. Transfer to plate.
Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to
Dutch oven and heat. Add fennel, onion,
bell pepper and garlic; cover. Cook, stirring
occasionally with wooden spoon, until veg-
etables soften, about 8 minutes. Add sherry;
bring to a boil. Return pork with any juices
to Dutch oven. Add enough cold water to
just cover pork and vegetables, about 6
cups; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer,
stirring occasionally, until pork is very ten-
der, about 1 1/2 hours.
Just before pork is tender, make saffron
rice. Bring rice, 4 cups water, salt and saf-
fron to a boil in medium saucepan over high
heat. Reduce heat to very low and cover.
Simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and let stand for 5-20
minutes. Fluff rice with fork.
Using slotted spoon, transfer pork and
vegetables to serving bowl and cover with
aluminum foil. Let cooking juices stand for
3 minutes, then skim off fat on surface. Boil
over high heat, uncovered, until cooking
liquid is reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
Season juices with salt and pepper. Pour
over pork and vegetables and sprinkle with
cilantro. Spoon saffron rice into bowls. Top
with stew, sprinkle with cilantro and serve.

e are seeing a renaissance of new electric car
thinking that is draws upon the past modern age
of innovative legends who were the discoverers
and champions of early 20th century zero CO2 emission
When we think about todays global rally for zero carbon
emissions and sustainable energy, Thomas Edison is includ-
ed in the list of names. Thomas Edison held these same
views on clean energy over 100 years ago. Although
Edison had a close friendship with Henry Ford, Edison
believed in electric cars. He promoted the electric car as
cleaner, quieter and easier to drive than gas powered auto-
mobiles. The Edison Electric Company was the battery
supplier to S.R. Bailey & Company which only manufac-
tured electric automobiles. The company built these elec-
tric automobiles in their Amesbury, Massachusetts plant
from 1907 to 1915. Their showcase model was the Bailey
Electric Phaeton. It was touted as a cross country vehicle
which could drive 100 miles on a full charge under ideal
The other legendary name that has been tied to todays
electric car models is Nikola Tesla. Tesla was a lead engi-
neer who felt he was treated unfairly by his employer
Thomas Edison. Tesla quit his employment with Edison
and got his revenge with employment at his rival company
Westinghouse They may have had a great public feud over
AC vs DC currents but, they both had an interest in the elec-
tric powered cars over the gas powered engines. Nikola
Tesla even designed his own AC motor in 1882. It is pur-
ported that, Nikola Teslas greatest marvel in car science
took place in 1930. Tesla replaced a Pierce Arrows ICE
engine with an Electric Motor. The power source he used to
power this car was a mysterious black box of radio tubes
housed in the glove compartment. Mounted to the box was
a protruding antenna. Tesla manually adjusted the tuners to
tune into the right frequency and acquired 240 volts that
were delivered through the air from the Wardencliffe power
plant tower near Niagara Falls NY into his car. Nikola Tesla
used his own personal funds to create this free energy pro-
totype car. When Tesla wanted to put his invention into
production and needed an investor, J.P. Morgan did not like
the idea because, you could not put a meter on this kind of
energy. Morgan stopped funding Tesla's free energy car and
the Wardencliffe Tower was taken down and Tesla plans on
the clean free energy car also disappeared never to be found
Even before Edisons and Teslas dream of clean energy
cars there was the fuel cell that was developed in the late
1830s by William Robert Grove who called it the gas bat-
tery. The fuel cell has the primary qualities of a car bat-
tery whose chemical fuel is constantly replenished. Todays
Proton-Exchange-Membrane (PME)-hydrogen- battery is
composed of a number of stacked cells. These cells can gen-
erate enough energy to power a car engine with hydrogen as
the catalyst (the most abundant resource). This technology
basically converts hydrogen into water and in the process
creates electricity. Toyota will have a Hydrogen Fuel
Celled car on the public roads in 2015.
One can only wonder if we have started using the clean
energy invented in the 19th Century by these legendary
inventors for cars of the 20th Century we would not be
thinking of cars with zero CO2 emissions in the 21st
Century because we would already be driving them.
