New Business Administrator Settles In Morristown

By Jane Primerano
orristown is a destination for shopping,
dining,
theater, music and movies
and it became a destination
for employment for Jillian
Barrick who joined the town
as business administrator on
Oct. 13.
Barrick comes to the city
from Perth Amboy where she
still lives and had the same
job. Her first post as city administrator was in East Orange.
“Morristown is smaller in population and size, a little
more suburban and a little more affluent,” she said in a recent
interview.
As business administrator she is chief operating officer of
the town, she said. “All department heads report to me, I report to the mayor,” she explained.
Her first week on the job, discussions between Atlantic
Ambulance and the town’s emergency squad shifted to include the town, she said. Like all first aid squads, the town’s
had trouble putting together day crews and Atlantic was providing services, but there were other gaps in service for which
help from Atlantic was needed.

“We came to a great solution,” Barrick said, adding it can
evolve over time depending on recruitment successes of the
squad. The agreement is a partnership between the two entities and doesn’t displace the squad.
She said without Atlantic covering in certain emergencies,
Morristown would be getting more mutual aid from neighboring communities than it would be providing. The agreement helps even things out.
Barrick also started work near the beginning of the 2016
budget process, which she considers a good thing because she
is quickly getting to know department heads and other employees.
Budget time is less difficult in Morristown this year due
to the settlement with Atlantic Health, she noted, although
“we’re not going on a spending spree.”
After a number of years of small victories over the hospital’s contention it should be treated as a non-profit entity,
Morristown finally settled for a payout of $15.5 million over
10 years. The town started legal challenges in 2006 and will
receive taxes plus $5.5 million in penalties and interest. From
2016 to 2025, 24 percent of the hospital’s 40-acre campus
will be assessed at $40 million, for an annual payment of
$1.05 million. The 700-bed hospital is non-for-profit for federal tax purposes. It was started to care for the indigent, but
the town believes its mission has moved more toward a profitmaking entity.
Barrick said she believes the town will use some of the
settlement money to open up municipal services to allow for

electronic transactions and improve communications between
the town and its residents.
“We want to offer world-class customer service,” she said.
With Christmas coming, Barrick is glad the Morristown
Business Partnership handles all decorating of the streets. She
is getting to know that group as well as the Trustees of the
Green, the Parking Authority, the Arts Council and Sustainable Morristown, all organizations that help the downtown
thrive.
The thriving downtown includes traffic issues, she conceded. There can be events at the Community Theater/Mayo
Performing Arts Center and some of the churches at the same
time the streets are full of shoppers and the restaurants and
taverns are busy.
“It’s a good problem to have,” she commented.

Newspaper Company Goes Full Circle, Doubles In Size, Returns Home

By Cheryl Conway
ith a new year comes change, like a different
office for New View Media Group LLC.

But for Joe Nicastro and Mary Lalama of Flanders,
co-owners with Darwin Oordt of Cherry Hill, they return
to the office where the company first started a dozen
years ago. Coming home is a wonderful feeling for them,
not only to return to the original office, but in the literal
sense that it is located where they dwell in Mt. Olive
Township.
On Mon., Nov. 16, New View Media Group moved
from its East Hanover office to Lakeview Plaza at 1 Old
Wolfe Rd, suite 205, in Budd Lake. The company had
been in East Hanover since April when it had merged
with the Marketeer, which had been headquartered there
for for about 15 years after being in Livingston since 1978.
What a nice homecoming it has been for Nicastro and
Lalama.
“The lease was up and being from Mt. Olive and a
councilman I wanted to bring my business to my hometown,” says Nicastro. “From a personal view it is close
to home for me and Mary and our employees that come
in on a daily basis. I am very happy to be back in Mt.
Olive close to home.”
While the current location is just temporary, Nicas-

tro’s plan is to purchase a different building in town
eventually.
“We are in the process of purchasing a building and
needed a temporary place,” says Nicastro. “The address
we are at now is the same address that we moved to when
we started the papers in 2004. We had started the Mt.
Olive Weekly back then and found that location. It was
available once again.”
Nicastro’s plan is “we are looking at a small building
along Route 46 that we feel would be a perfect home and
give great exposure to the business.”
For New View Media Group, 2015 has been a tremendous year of growth.
With a current circulation of about 159,000 homes
from as far west as Hackettstown to as far east as Cedar
Grove, New View Media Group has grown from eight
monthly papers this time last year and plans to hold
steady with 15 papers moving into 2016.
On April 1, they had formed a partnership with Oordt,
owner of the Marketeer, a free shopper type supplement.
They changed their name from MJ (My Jersey) Media to
New View Media with “The idea that we have a new
view on media,” says Nicastro.
All community news, from schools to government,
people, organizations, places of worship, libraries, nonprofit organizations, volunteer services, children’s

groups, scouts, fundraisers and more are featured in the
free monthly papers. The company’s philosophy is to
showcase all the good, positive news that surrounds its
readers.
New View Media Group’s publications, moving forward, include Mt. Olive News, Hackettstown News,
Roxbury News, Randolph News, Black River News,
Morristown News, Mendham News, Madison News,
Chatham News, Livingston News, Hanover News, Caldwell News, Verona/Cedar Grove News, Millburn/Short
Hills News and East Hanover/Florham Park News.
As far as continued growth, Nicastro says “We are in
the middle of reevaluating the papers to see where and
when other expansions would make sense.”
Offering free publications to all residences and businesses, the company depends on paid advertising. Contact Nicastro at 800-691-7549 or joe@newviewmg.com.
New View Media Group also invites the community
to help share any positive news with its neighbors by
sending all story ideas and press releases to
editor@newviewmg.com.

Simple Ways To Spend Less

hen people take inventory of their
spending habits, many come to
the conclusion that they need to
scale back. Upon making that realization,
many people immediately assume they need
to give up certain luxuries. However, spending less on nonessential items may free up
funds for more enjoyable activities, such as
dining out and travel. Being frugal doesn’t
mean you have to be a minimalist, and it’s
easier than you might think. Explore these
relatively easy methods to tame spending.
• Use cash as much as possible. Paying
with cash can create an emotional feeling of
loss and taps into your five senses. Taking
cash from your wallet and handing it over
to cashiers could slow down your subconscious spending, which is less likely to happen if you always swipe a credit or debit
card.
• Keep a spending log. Jot down your
spending habits on a piece of paper or use
home budgeting software to track where
you tend to spend the most. This gives you
an accurate and fluid method to examine
your spending.
• Spend less on shopping sprees. Some
people use shopping as an emotional release
or a method to relieve stress. If you like

shopping but want to cut back on your
spending, shop in less expensive stores,
such as consignment or dollar stores. This
feeds your desire to shop without breaking
the bank.
• Eliminate one monthly bill. Find a way
to cut out one monthly expense. If you’re
not using that gym membership, cancel it. If
you can’t find something to eliminate, find
a way to cut back. Maybe you can scale
back your mobile phone service plan.
Downgrade your cable television package
to one that’s more affordable.
• Do things yourself. Consider the services you pay others to do that you may be
able to do yourself. If you’re handy with a
paintbrush, paint your home interior. Have
everyone pitch in to clean the house and
scale back on housekeeping services. Cook
your own meals and rely less on takeout.
• Transfer savings automatically. Transfer a portion of your paycheck directly into
a savings account. Set up automated transfers so the money never appears in the account linked to your debit card.
• Pay bills on time. Do not waste money
on late fees and penalties. Use automatic bill
pay so you don’t miss any payments and
waste money on fees.

Winter Farmers Market Opens At New Venue
Morris School District, said the move to the
new location was for more than one reason.
“It was crowded last year, we couldn’t fit
all the vendors in and get the right people
flow,” she said.
The 2014-15 market was at Fosterfields
Living History Farm in Morris Township.

M

Vendors filled several rooms of the administration building and some were forced to set
up outside under a canopy which wasn’t a
good situation in bad weather.
In addition, the vendors wanted to hold
the market every weekend which wasn’t poscontinued on next page

Morristown Teen Honors Pediatrician With Toy Drive
For Hospitalized Children

By Cheryl Conway
oliday time will be much brighter
for children stuck in the hospital,
thanks to the kind heart of a Morristown teenager who has spent the past
month collecting toys just for them.
Morristown High School junior Charlie
Lia, 17, has been collecting toys around
town since Nov. 24 for his second annual
Wesley’s Toy Box. Last year, he collected
300 toys ranging from board games to
dolls, action figures, video games and puzzles.
Lia’s toy drive is his way of giving back
to the hospital which he says saved him
when he was younger. He also named his
drive in memory of his long-time pediatrician Dr. Wesley Boodish of Millburn Pediatrics.
“I would really like to give back to the
pediatric unit that saved my life,” says Lia.
All toys will be given to the sick children at the Pediatric Unit at Saint Barnabas
Medical Center in Livingston.

It was in late 2004, when Lia spent one
week at the Pediatric Unit at Saint Barnabas
Medical Center in Livingston. He was only
five years old when he was diagnosed with
a “life threatening” case of pneumonia.
“They treated me around the clock,” recalls Lia. “They really watched over me.
They did everything they could to help
me.”
Besides saving his life, Lia says he was
introduced, at a young age, to children who
were sicker than he was.
“I saw another child who had cancer,”
explains Lia. “That moment made me realize there are many worse off children than
me.”
“Ever since then, I’ve had the urge to
give back,” says Lia. Although it has been
12 years since he battled pneumonia at
Saint Barnabas, Lia says, his desire to do
something to give back only grew overtime.
“My appreciation for them really grew,”
says Lia. “There were many moments in
my life when I said ‘I wouldn’t be here’ if

it weren’t for the doctors at Saint Barnabas.
Lia continues, “I know there are kids in
there that are way worse off than me. The

toys would be a way to help them get
through it. Giving toys to them would be

my way to show my gratitude.”
To show his appreciation even more, Lia
has named his toy drive Wesley’s Toy Box
in honor of Dr. Wesley Boodish.
Boodish was Lia’s pediatric doctor for
13 years before he died in April 2014.
“He had a really good charisma,” says
Lia. “He would be very inspiring to me. A
check up from him would make my day. He
was very positive, very inspiring. He was a
very good role model; such a role model to
me. His death just really made me sad.”
Lia decided to hold the toy drive during
the holiday season to cheer up little ones
who cannot be home during such a fun, festive time for most.
“Christmas is the time of giving,” says
Lia. “Since these children are in the hospital
over Christmastime, why not give them
toys that would make them more happy
over Christmastime?”

Lia is requesting that the toys be suitable
for children between the ages of infant to
teenagers.
To spread the word, Lia has hung posters
throughout MHS; has asked the high school
to make daily announcements over the intercom; has sent out email blasts; and has
even gotten the Key Club, in which he is a
member, to allocate to members one hour
of volunteer time for each toy they donate.
The Key Club at MHS is a volunteer
group of students that helps out in various
ways in the community.
Lia plans to continue his toy drive until
Dec. 21. Drop off boxes are located at the
main office of Morristown High School and
at Millburn Pediatrics, in which he is still a
patient. Lia plans to visit the drop off boxes
each week to collect the toys and make
room for more.

Morris County Sheriff Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

By Ejvind Boccolini
orris County Sheriff Edward
Rochford received a lifetime
achievement award earlier this
month for 50 years of service in a law enforcement capacity. This is true dedication
to service, and has had a most uplifting effect on the lives and well-being of Morris
County residents.
In early December, Rochford was
awarded a lifetime achievement award at
the Peace Islands Institute Law Enforcement Appreciation dinner at the Hyatt in
Morristown. He is being honored for 50
years of protecting and serving the residents and visitors of Morris County in a
law enforcement capacity.
Susan Hunter, chief of staff at the Morris County Sheriff's Office (MCSO), noted
that he has "accumulated numerous awards
and honors, too many to enumerate. It’s no
surprise why he has received all these
awards and honors, and it’s no surprise
why he is on his eighth term as our elected
sheriff."

Hunter, who spoke at the awards dinner
where Sheriff Rochford received his
award, said Rochford knew at the age of
six that he wanted to be a police officer,
and "fulfilled that dream on Nov. 29th,
1965 - the day he was sworn in with the
Morris Township Police."
Rochford served a 27-year career there,
earning 52 commendations, and finished
up as deputy chief.
Just prior to retiring from the police department, he was approached with the idea
of running for sheriff, and "he assessed the
responsibilities and the possibilities and he
decided that not only could he do this job,
but he could do it well," said Hunter,
adding that he became sheriff in 1993,
"where he remains today, in his 23rd year
of impeccable service."
Hunter said one of Rochford's first goals
was to fortify and tighten up the agency so
it was deserving of national accreditation
status, and this achievement was realized
in 1998.
Rochford then took on the noble task of

assisting every other sheriff in the state of
New Jersey until all 21 sheriff offices in
this state were also accredited - Morris
County, was first, we should realize, however.
"Continuing his strong and steady leadership, he then led the agency to earning
the prestigious Triple Crown Award which
ranks the Morris County Sheriff's Office in
the top one percent of all 3,083 sheriff’s offices throughout this nation," Hunter said,
adding that in 2014, the MCSO earned this
award for the 11th year in a row.
Residents of the county and beyond
"should not take this for granted," Hunter
said.
Rochford was honored for his excellent
fiscal management, and for safely handling
many crisis situations over his years in law
enforcement, and even preventing other
emergency situations.
At the awards ceremony, Hunter said, "I
would just like to end with the same quote
I began with but this time, think about how
this pertains to Sheriff Ed Rochford, the

steward of Morris County."
Hunter offered the Ronald Reagan
quote to attendees: “'I know in my heart
that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.'”
In other Morris County news, county officials could not comment in depth at this
time about an apparent theft of a gold item
from the St. Thomas More Roman Catholic
Church in Morristown in late November
just before Thanksgiving and its subsequent return on Thanksgiving weekend.
The gold and silver item is allegedly worth
about $10,000, and is used to exhibit religious holiness during mass.
Church officials relayed to the press that
the item was missing, but then apparently
returned on Thanksgiving weekend, though
county officials noted that "If this happened in a place of worship they should put
a call out to the MCPO (Morris County
Prosecutor's Office).... any kind of crimes
to places of worship must be reported to
the prosecutors office."

Notable Events From 2015

he dawn of a new year is not only a
great time to look ahead and make
plans for the future, but it’s also a
great time to reflect on the previous 12
months. The following are some notable
events from 2015.
• Just seven days into the new year, a terrorist attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo shocks the world. Twelve
people, including several cartoonists and two
police officers, are killed, while five others
suffer critical injuries. The attacks are later
linked to the terrorist organization Al Qaeda,
which reportedly ordered the attacks in retaliation for the publication’s caricatures of the
Prophet Muhammad.
• United States President Barack Obama
and Cuban President Raul Castro meet in
early April, marking the first time in more
than half a century the two countries’ leaders
met face-to-face. Less than two months later,
the United States removes Cuba from its list
of state sponsors of terrorism, moving one
significant step closer to restoring full diplomatic relations between the two countries.
• Ireland becomes the first country to legalize same-sex marriage in a national refer-

endum on May 22. Roughly 62 percent of
voters approve changing the country’s constitution to allow same-sex marriage, a vote
that comes 22 years after the Irish government decriminalized homosexuality.
• Just one day after American Independence Day, the United States Women’s National Team wins the Women’s World Cup in
Vancouver, British Columbia. The game is a
rout, as American Carli Lloyd scores a hat
trick in the first three minutes of the game en
route to leading her team to a 5-2 victory over
Japan. Lloyd’s hat trick was the first such feat
in Women’s World Cup Final history.
• Alexis Tsipras wins a snap election on
September 20 to once again become Prime
Minister of Greece. The elections come
roughly one month after Tsipras announces
his resignation as a result of intraparty defections that have cost him his majority in the
Greek parliament.
• The Chicago Cubs clinch a postseason
series at Wrigley Field for the first time ever
when they defeat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4
to win one of two National League Division
Series.

Many Groups Work To Help To Make Morris Plains Litter Free

orris Plains wants everyone to take responsibility
for their actions and pride in the environment –
don’t litter, put trash and recyclables in their
proper place!
This fall 12 scout, school and volunteer groups went out
and scoured the streets of Morris Plains to pick up trash and
recyclables left along the roadways and in open spaces.
More than 200 kids and adults participated. They are all part
of the State’s Clean Communities mini-grant program. The
groups included Borough School’s eight grade, Girl Scout
Troops 402, 223, 5081, 4904 and 4903; Boy Scout Troop
39 and Cub Scout Troop 233; the Morristown High School
Boys Soccer Boosters, Girls Tennis Club and Swim Team;
and the Morris Plains Teen Center. Later this year Girl Scout
Troops 1644 and 271 will be doing special clean-ups to be
sure the downtown is litter free for the holidays.
During this one period alone an estimated 1,100 pounds
of trash was collected along with 180 pounds of recyclables.
Candy wrappers and glass and plastic bottles and cups were
dropped along the streets. But it was found that much of the
trash became wind-blown to end up caught in wooded areas
and at the fence lines along the busiest roads and in the
parks. If only people would take that extra step to put trash
in a bin, or just take it home to dispose of it, the problem
would be solved.
In addition to all the fall cleanups, the town is pleased to

announce that the sixth and eighth grades from Borough
School have made a special commitment to sweep both
Community and Simon’s parks four times during the year
as part of the new Morris Plains Adopt-a-Park program.
Clean Communities is a State-wide grant program
funded through the NJ Clean Communities Council. It’s a
comprehensive, litter-abatement program created by the
passage of the Clean Communities Act in 1986. The Act
provides a funding source for the program by placing a tax
on fifteen categories of businesses that may produce littergenerating products. Municipalities and counties programs
to cleanup and educate.
Residents putting items at the curb can help curb the litter
problem by picking up any loose trash before it blows away.
Also, using lids on trash and recycling containers to prevent
the wind from blowing materials out of the receptacles and
flattening corrugated cardboard boxes and stack them into
one unflattened box.
Thank-you to all those that participate in the Clean Communities program to help keep Morris Plains litter free!
For more information about the Morris Plains Clean
Communities program residents can go to the Borough of
Morris Plains Web Site at http://www.morrisplainsboro.org/
or contact the Municipal Clean Communities Coordinator,
Ellie Falco at (973) 538-9103.

Christmas trees and wreaths, you
can expect some pine needles to
find their way onto your floors during the
holiday season. Such needles can become
imbedded in carpeting or stuck in socks and
furniture, proving to be quite a nuisance. Attempting to vacuum them all up can be frustrating, as some vacuums simply do not
have the suction power to handle all of those
heavy needles. Plus, they can become
lodged in the inner cavities of the vacuum
