    By Kate Halse

    As the West Morris Regional School District gears up

    for another productive year, one hot topic that has

    been on the mind of parents, students, and faculty

    alike is becoming a reality. Over the past year, the idea of

    expanding the use of technology in the classrooms through-

    out the district has been met with mostly favorable respons-

    es from the community. Earlier this year, the West Morris

    Regional Board of Education held a vote to decide whether

    students should be allowed to bring their own devices toschool. The overwhelming majority voted in favor of the

    policy, suggesting that if the school district would like to

    remain competitive, it should allow students to have access

    to the latest technology inside the classroom. This will help

    advance their thinking and communication skills, providing

    them with the necessary background and training they need

    for life during high school and beyond.

    Although students will eventually be able to bring their

    own devices to school, boundaries and policies need to be

    set in place. These enforcements will help to curta il any dis-

    tractions or unrelated activities, keeping students focused

    and on task during the day. Superintendent MackeyPendergrast believes that before students can bring in their

    own devices, the board needs to analyze and create respon-

    sible usage policy, which includes socia l media. The Board

    of Education has played an active role in the decision to

    allow students to use their own devices in school, and their

    enthusiasm is shared by both students and faculty members.

    While they are getting ready to incorporate technology into

    the schools, physical measures must be taken to ensure that

    each school is properly equipped for todays devices. WiFi

    capabilities need to be created, as they offer students and

    teachers the use of wireless devices inside the school.To help prepare their schools for the integration of tech-

    nology, the West Morris Regional High School District has

    appointed a new Supervisor of Technology, Erica Hartman.

    Hartman believes that education by way of technology is

    critically important in todays society. Her goal is to educate

    teachers and staff members on the ways in which modern

    programs and devices can greatly enhance both teaching

    and learning experience. Hartman is especially fond of

    Google, which offers its services free of charge. The school

    district has since adopted a Google platform, bringing it one

    step closer to compatibility with todays technology.

    almost everyones hand now, and are used

    by millions of Americans across the coun-try. With such an abundance of technology,

    it seems difficult to believe that such

    devices have not yet made their way into

    many public school systems. These devices

    offer an array of learning opportunities and

    ways for students to communicate with one

    another and their instructors as necessary.

    The school district is exploring programs

    such as Edmodo, which allows students tocommunicate with each other and their

    instructors through a social learning net-

    work. Social media platforms such as

    Facebook add to Edmodos popularity

    among students and teachers, making it a

    useful addition to the West Morris Regional

    High School District classrooms.

    By Ejvind Boccolini

    ALong Valley artteacher has an influ-ential career in pho-

    tography, dance and sculpt-

    ing - having performed in amajor motion picture calledTap, and several significanttheatre/dance productionsand documentaries as partof her career.

    Dorothy Wasserman, ofHackettstown, teaches art inthe Washington TownshipPublic School System, start-ing at Old Farmers RoadSchool from 1992 to 2007,and then at Cucinella

    Elementary School, from2007 to the present.Wasserman loves her joband the projects she workson with her students - butlocal Morris County resi-dents may not know every-thing about her impressivecareer as an artist.

    Born in Duluth, MI,Wasserman grew up inNorth Caldwell, NJ, andnotes that, "Art has always

    been a part of my life." Sheperformed as a twirler with

    the school band at WestEssex High School, choreo-graphing the routines, anddanced in school plays aswell. She drew sketches

    quite well in her youth andalways dreamed of being anartist when she grew up.

    Wasserman, who wasobviously off to a greatstart, also made sculpturesall the while, and when inhigh school, she said shehad a "fantastic" historyteacher, Larry Mach. Machintroduced her to foreignfilms and photography, andencouraged Wasserman and

    said she had an eye for com-position with her superbphotos.

    Wasserman said Machtaught her how to draw, andto sketch out a drawing in ashort time - showing herthat it was important tosketch out the "whole thingin three minutes."

    She took these skills andbuilt upon them. Wassermanbegan photography when

    she was 17 and pursued arteducation in college at the

    State University of NewYork in New Paltz, SUNY.This background helpedWasserman gain the wis-dom and drive to succeed in

    many facets of her artisticlife in future years.

    She took tap dancingclasses from an Afro-Cuban

    jazz dancer, BrendaBufalino, "and I neverstopped," she said.Wasserman was simultane-ously interested in realismand sculpting, and alwaysphotography, using blackand white 35 mm film.

    She also performed

    around New York City as adancer and received fundingto make a documentary withBufalino, "Great Feats ofFeet," which was released in1977. It documents the greattap dancers of the 20s, 30sand 40s, and Bufalino andWasserman served as direc-tor and assistant director,respectively.

    She moved from NewPaltz to Boston, where she

    lived for the next four years:1978 - 1982. She had an art

    Long Valley Art Teacher Has Influential, Inspired Careersculpting studio/store and adance studio right next toeach other.

    From 1982-1991 shelived in New York City,

    where she worked at theMetropolitan Museum ofArt for six years. She had astaff card, and said it was"like being in an art historybook" for years.

    At the time, she was stillvery involved with dance,and did a lot of off-Broadway dance, taughtdance, and created sculp-tures - using clay and fabric.She said it was "figurative,

    but very mixed," and alsostarted to incorporate put-ting photos to silk - that is,printing them on silk.

    In addition to all thisactivity, she began teachingin public school in NewYork City as well, in aneffort to make a bettersalary. She started as a sub-stitute teacher in the publicschool system.

    Some of the neighbor-hoods were very rough, andthough it was practical

    financially for Wasserman,it was difficult work.

    In 1991, she relocated toNew Jersey, where shebegan teaching at Old

    Farmers School in LongValley. Wasserman taughtthere until about five yearsago, when she began teach-ing at Cucinella ElementarySchool, also in Long Valley.

    "I love my job, because Ihave such passion for art,"she said.

    Wasserman said sheloves the idea of creatingprojects for the kids that arechallenging and interesting.

    All the while, of course, shecontinues to create her ownart as well. She began usingmore and more photos inher artwork - more specifi-cally, patchwork with silkand photos.

    Wasserman makes high-quality injet copies of herphotographs for her photocollages - a medium whichshe has created with foryears now.

    It was 1999 when shemade her first photo col-

    lage, and now she is up tonumber 17.

    In 2006 she received the

    Geraldine Dodge ArtistInitiative Grant, a grant fora teacher/artist, and used thefunding for her work onphoto collages, but also tofund a trip to Michigan andresearch her roots.

    Here she visited the townof St. Cloud, where she hasextensive family history andwhere some of her familymembers are consideredpioneers - a very informa-tional and inspiring learning

    experience indeed for Wasserman.Perhaps one of Wasserman's most

    impressive achievements was performing in

    New York City in the mid-1980s as part ofthe theatre/dance production Sole Sisters -an all-women's tap show which captured theattention of famed actor Gregory Hineswhen he saw the live production inGreenwich Village.

    He saw The Dorothy Shim Sham - aunique interpretation, which Wassermancreated, of the legendary "Shim ShamShimmy" dance. When Hines witnessedSole Sisters, he was inspired to recruitWasserman to be included in the Tri-Starmajor motion picture "Tap" in the late1980s.

    Over the years, Wasserman continued tocreate an ongoing batch of excellent photocollages, with such titles as "Leaving NewYork", "1st Ave. South," and Wherever YouGo There You Are." Wasserman has exhib-ited her work at Columbia University, theMetropolitan Museum of Art Staff Show,and was featured in Town and Countrymagazine.

    Her philosophy regarding art, is that "myartwork has a lot of meaning to me as anartist," she said. "It's an organic process."

    And with this passion, comes purpose. "I

    have to make art," she said, adding that herphoto collages are intriguing to work on,and include much detail and complexity.

    Wasserman said her work has to have

    "some kind of philosophical meaning tome." She said she is really interested inphysics, and her collages have stories tothem as well.

    "Photo collage is like life: dense, multi-layered and complicated. Our vision simpli-fies, unifying the chaotic harmony ofdetails. Our eyes see through emotions, dis-torting and confusing that which is withinwith that which is without. Black and whitephotography, used in collage, is a very agilemedium for attempting to make visual theseperceptions."

    Wasserman's collages are narrativesbased on psychological, political, andsometimes spiritual concepts - often explor-ing ideas from "Most artists working inphoto collage use the computer to cut andwield the images to create 'illusions,'" shesaid.

    "I take all my own photographs andassemble the pieces by hand," she said."The physicality of art making informs mywork. As a final step, the rough collages arescanned, to create surface unity, and printedon rag paper using pigmented archivalinks."

    Last week the

    Silhouettes gymnas-

    tics team at CS

    Gymnastics of Flanders,

    was excited to see howmany cartwheels they could

    each do within a two minute

    time limit. It wasnt just to

    settle their curiosity, but to

    help a local Flanders CS

    Gymnastics team family

    work through a tragic death

    of a family member. The

    Cartwheel A-Thon for

    Katrina was the idea of CS

    Gymnastics team member

    Sophia Lemongello and hermom, when they learned of

    the situation that their fel-

    low CS Gymnastics team

    family was going through.

    The CS Gymnastics fam-

    ilies had a week to gather

    sponsors to contribute dona-

    tions per cartwheel or a gen-

    eral gift. After a brief warm

    up time, the girls lined up

    for cartwheels.

    At the coaches signal all

    you could see were 22 setsof legs in air, and parents

    counting cartwheels. At the

    conclusion of two minutes,

    1,113 cartwheels were

    rolled over, and 419 push

    ups where cranked out for

    Katrinas three daughters.

    It was great to see us all

    cheering each other on. We

    all were excited to be able to

    to help out one of our

    Q. Tell me about your prac-tice?

    A. I am a neurosurgeon whospecializes in minimally invasiveendoscopic spine surgery at Ex-ecutive Spine Surgery in Hack-ettstown, NJ. I completed twofellowships in complex spinesurgery at Stanford University inCalifornia and interventional and

    minimally invasive spine surgeryat Semmes-Murphey Neurologicand Spine Institute in Ten-nessee. I focus on treatment ofspinal disorders through pain in-

    jections and minimally invasivespine surgery.

    Q. What is minimally invasivespine surgery?

    A. It is spine surgery with askin incision less than 1-inch,but it is more than just a smallincision. The surgery is donethrough a tube in between back

    muscles to decrease muscledamage and weakness causedby muscle retraction. Do notconfuse minimally invasive sur-gery with the term micro-surgery. Microsurgery onlyrefers to the use of a micro-scope not the size of the inci-sion or the amount of muscledamage.

    Q. How is endoscopic laserspine surgery different thanminimally invasive surgery?

    A. Endoscopic spine surgery

    Q. What types of conditionscan endoscopic spine surgerytreat?

    A. Treatment is effective forconditions that cause back pain,leg pain, numbness and weak-

    ness, such as arthritis, bonespurs, bulging discs, stenosis,herniated disc, facet joint dis-ease, sciatica, scoliosis,spondylolisthesis (slippedspine), instability and others.

    Q. What are the surgeryoptions?

    A. Endoscopic Rhizotomytreats back and leg pain originat-

    ing fromfacet

    joints andmedialbranch

    nerves.The me-dialbranchnerves arefound andcut

    through the endoscope. Patientsusually have almost immediatepain relief lasting for years. Ra-diofrequency ablation (RFA) onlydamages the nerve and usuallyprovides pain relief for six tonine months. Recovery timeranges from one to three weeks.

    Endoscopic Discectomytreats back and leg pain result-ing fromherniatedor torndiscspinchingthe legnervescausingsciatica.The discis foundand removed through the endo-scope, providing quick pain re-

    lief. Recovery timeranges from two to 6weeks.

    Endoscopic Fusiontreats degenerative diskdisease, spondylolysis

    (pars fracture), spondy-lolithesis and instabilitythat cause back pain.The disk is removedthrough the endoscope andspinal endplates are preparedfor fusion under direct visualiza-tion.

    Endoscopic fusion is doneunder general anesthetic withnerve monitoring to facilitate in-sertion of a cage and spinal in-strumentation. Recovery timeranges from one to threemonths.

    Q. Why can you help peopleothers say they cannot?

    A. Traditional surgery is lim-ited because the surgeon re-quires direct vision of thepathology with their eye or mi-croscope. The endoscope cam-era visualizes areas that are notusually accessible, through fora-men and around corners. Thisgreater visualization combinedwith less damage and surgicalrisk increases the spectrum ofpathology that can be treatedsafely. This allows treatment of

    spinal disorders others say theycannot treat. This happenedmany years ago in orthopedicswith introduction of endoscopeto knee surgery. Today no onedoubts the incredible benefits ofendoscopy of the knee. We areseeing this happen with spinesurgery.

    Q. Can you help ever yone?A. Not everyone can be

    helped or will be satisfied. Thisis still spine surgery. I do sin-cerely believe that in those that

    are not improved, the negativeconse-quencesof theopen tech-niques areat leastavoided.Endo-scopicspine sur-gery is the next advance in the

    treatment of spinal disorders.

    Q. Why doesnt ever yone dothis surgery?

    A. These procedures requirea unique combination of skillsthat take time to acquire; it is ahybrid procedure that falls in be-tween interventional pain andminimally invasive spine sur-gery. They are cutting-edge tech-niques. I believe that with timethese procedures will replacemost open surgeries of thespine similar to orthopedic, urol-

    ogy, general and gynecologicalsurgery. Endoscopic spine sur-gery is the future.

    is state-of-the-art minimally inva-sive spine surgery. A microvideo camera is insertedthrough a small incision to thedamaged area of the spine. Thecamera projects the imagesonto a video screen so the sur-geon can easily visualize thepathology. Tiny instruments areinserted through the camera toremove herniated disks, fixarthritis or fuse the spine underdirect visualization. The mediaoften emphasizes lasers butthey are only one of the manyendoscopic instruments.

    Q. Why is endoscopic spinesurgery better than traditionalsurgery?

    A. Traditional surgery is moredestructive in its approach tothe spine for the problem beingtreated. The larger the incisionthe more collateral tissue dam-age and consequential scar tis-sue that forms. This scar tissuemay result in future difficulties.

    Endoscopic spine surgery isextremely minimally invasive,even for minimally invasivespine surgery. The incision isvery small (the size of a finger-nail) and there is minimal dam-age to blood vessels, muscle,ligaments and bone producingvery little blood loss. No generalanesthesia is required decreas-ing medical risks and improvingaccess to surgery for high-riskpatients. These benefits resultin less post-operative pain andquicker recovery.

    Breakthrough Treatment Now Available In Long ValleyImagine thirty to forty years ago if you were told that

    lasers would replace scalpels in surgery or that robotic

    instruments would build cars; you may not have believed it.

    By the same token would you believe that chiropractic

    treatments could be performed using a special hand-held

    instrument developed by NASA scientists; all while youwere sitting in an upright position without turning or twist-

    ing movements?

    Advances in computers and engineering technologies

    have been able to uniquely blend with chiropractic in order

    to both analyze and treat the human body in such a way that

    was never before realized.

    According to Dr. Michael S. Hyjek, This new form of

    computerized treatment is so gentle and effective, that it

    amazes even the most skeptical patients. Its called the

    ProAdjuster and is the latest, state-of-the-art technology in

    existence today, and the only one in the Long Valley area

    The ProAdjuster can safely and gently analyze and treatthe spine and other joints to remove the nerve impingement

    that is often the cause of pains in the low back, neck, shoul-

    der and elsewhere in the body. It also works on a variety of

    muscular conditions to loosen tight muscles with ease and

    comfort. Many patients say that its like getting a mini-mas-


    It can also help increase the amount of motion in almost

    any joint. Even patients with knee, hip and foot problems

    such as plantar fasciitis are being helped. It is also covered

    by most insurance companies including medicare.

    Dr. Michael S. Hyjek, the secret to the ProAdjuster lies

    in its advanced piezoelectric sensor that is able to detect theslightest amount of restriction in a joint and then deliver an

    extremely precise adjustment. He says that Even though

    traditional forms of adjusting also work, people are drawn

    to this new technique because of how gentle it is and does

    not involve any twisting, especially in the neck. Many peo-

    ple love getting adjusted with traditional manual tech-

    niques, all of which are safe and effective, but there are alarge number of people who never get to experience the

    amazing benefits of chiropractic because they are scared to

    have their spines adjusted in that way, says Dr. Michael S.

    Hyjek, Now, there is no longer a reason for anyone to be

    weary. The ProAdjuster is perfect for anyone who has been

    thinking about going to a chiropractor, but hasnt yet made

    that decision. Dr. Michael S. Hyjek, wants everyone to beable to experience these same benefits and if you have any

    of the following conditions, the ProAdjuster may be the

    answer youve been looking for

    Low back discomfort Fibromyalgia

    Sciatic nerve pain * Planter Fascitis

    Neck and shoulder pain Knee or hip pain

    TMJ dysfunction Scoliosis

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Arthritis

    Headaches Sports injuries

    Treatment with the ProAdjuster is consistent, measura-

    ble and extremely gentle. There is no guesswork, and its

    safe for individuals of all ages. Call our office today andmention this article to receive a FREE ProAdjuster analysis

    to pin-point your problem area and see how the ProAdjuster

    can help. Call within the next 7 days and you will also

    ized muscle test that can show the areas of your stress and

    how its affecting your body. Call 908-876-8777 today to

    persistent, painful condition. Call us today.

    Would you like not only to look 5 to 10 years

    younger but also feel years younger as well?

    Skylands Acupuncture and Wellness Centers

    Anti-Aging program can do just that. Facial fillers and cos-

    metic surgery can only change the hands of time on your

    face, but do nothing to physiologically make you feel

    younger, increase your energy, promote overall wellness,

    help you to sleep better and overall turn back the hands of

    time both inwardly and outwardly!

    Cosmetic Surgery is a booming multimillion-dollar

    industry in the United States; millions of women are on aquest to restore youthfulness to their face and neck. As the

    risks and complications, and at times disfigurement, from

    invasive surgical treatments, injections and chemical exfo-

    liants become increasingly public; many people are discov-

    ering the effectiveness of cosmetic acupuncture to rejuve-

    nate the face. By activating the facial muscles, increasing

    collagen and boosting the circulatory and lymphatic sys-

    tems, acupuncture offers a completely natural path to facial

    rejuvenation that many have called an astonishing and

    relaxing experience. Promoting collagen production

    increases muscle tone and elasticity helping to firm the

    skin, fill out wrinkles, and reduce bags and sagging withoutrecovery time, lost work time, or hiding from family and

    friends while healing.

    Facial rejuvenation utilizing acupuncture is becoming a

    more popular, non-surgical method for those who want not

    only to maintain natural beauty, radiance and vitality in the

    face, but also improve their overall health and well being at

    the same time. Cosmetic acupuncture has even been fea-

    tured in the mainstream media, such as on ABC Televisions

    Good Morning America, Fox News and Public

    Broadcasting Systems Healthweek. Madonna, Jessica

    Parker and Cher utilize facial rejuvenation to maintain the

    work theyve had done surgically. (see the video

    This delicate use of ultra fine facial acupuncture needles

    are placed both on the face, neck and body which develops

    collagen and stimulates the rejuvenation processes. While

    your skin is reacting to the subtle stimulation, the treatment

    is also adjusting energy throughout your entire body to pro-

    mote wellness. Each treatment is approximately 1 to 1.5

    hours long and is part of a ten to twelve treatment series.

    For optimal results, it is recommended that the patient

    receive two treatments per week for 5 to 6 weeks, although

    not necessary. Many of our patients come once a week and

    still see amazing results. Maintenance sessions are sched-

    uled according to the individuals needs and are usually rec-

    ommended on a monthly basis to enhance results for many

    years. Changes may be seen as soon as the first treatment is

    completed, but each subsequent treatment builds on the last.

    The program is safe, effective and brings with it none of thegreat expense, adverse effects or toxicity of more invasive

    approaches that involve drugs or surgery. The following

    before and after pictures show the disappearance of lines

    utilizing only acupuncture:

    How Does Facial Rejuvenation Work?

    According to the latest research in dermatology and Dr.

    Howard Murad, a professor of dermatology at UCLA and

    Vogue magazines proclaimed One of Americas top der-

    matologists, the problem is free radicals. Aging skin

    ...wrinkles, sagging, enlarged pores, puffiness, thin and dry

    skinis due to the damaged caused by free radicals. Free

    radicals are caused by the foods we eat, environmental tox-ins we breathe and apply on our skin, smoking, and grilled

    meats to name a few. Free radicals are destructive mole-

    cules. They destroy the integrity of other molecules. They

    first attack and destroy the walls of your skin cells. So if

    you imagine your cells as being like a water balloon. Free

    radicals are like a needle that pokes holes into it. The bal-

    loon will then leak like a sieveand your cells become

    dehydrated. They become deflated and dry, because all the

    vital fluid and nutrients have leaked out.

    Facial Rejuvenation utilizing Acupuncture helps restore

    the integrity of your skin cells by stimulating the nervous,

    circulatory and hormonal systems to boost collagen andelastin production.

    Facial Rejuvenation can actually take 5 to 10 or more

    years off your face. Some of the most common effects of

    facial rejuvenation include:

    Reduction of fine lines

    Diminished deep wrinkles

    FACIAL REJUVENATION A Wonderful, Holistic Approach to Reversing the Aging Process

    Droopy eyelids are lifted

    Jowls are firmed

    Under eye bags are reduced

    Puffiness around the eyes is reduced or eliminated

    Increase of blood and lymph circulation to the face

    increases skin moisture

    Increased collagen production

    Improved muscle tone

    Dermal contraction

    Tightening of pores

    Brightening of the eye area Reduced signs of stress from the face

    Facial Rejuvenation utilizing Acupuncture is a safe and

    effective alternative to the use of more invasive therapies to

    regain your youth not only on the outside, but also on the

    inside. In our clinic, cosmetic Acupuncture entails a

    detailed health history in addition to just doing facial

    acupuncture. To really get results, we also treat the under-

    lying causes of each patients aging process. For example,

    a person with a lot of facial sagging and puffiness may also

    exhibit signs of indigestion, insomnia, with some depres-

    sion. This person will receive facial acupuncture in addi-

    tion to being treated by tonifying her spleen, moving herliver Qi, and calming the mind. Hence, each treatment is

    highly individualized to meet the needs of each patient. In

    addition to the acupuncture treatment, many patients also

    receive Chinese Herbal formulas to target areas of dishar-

    mony and renew original beauty by enhancing adequate

    blood flow, moisture, energy and circulation.

    Skylands Anti- Aging program recommends that you

    use all natural facial cleansing and toning products to

    enhance your new youthful look which help to prevent free

    radical formation from harsh chemicals used in facial

    cleansers and cosmetics. In addition to your treatment and

    cleansing products, you will also receive dietary andlifestyle awareness that will further reduce the production

    of free radicals that cause aging.

    I have been living my dream for over 20 years of help-

    ing my patients to enjoy better health, living a more vibrant

    and energetic life, eliminating their pain, preventing heart

    disease and cancer through dietary and lifestyle awareness,

    helping couples achieve their dream of having a child and

    now helping my patients to turn back the hands of time. It

    is my pleasure and joy to help you achieve your health,

    well-being and longevity goals for 2011. Our mission at

    ing experience.Start today move towards a healthier, more beautiful,

    ts been an exciting season so far for the

    members of the West Morris Central

    High School wrestling team, with an

    array of highlights and top place finishes

    that have started the new year out on the

    right foot for the team. This year, the team

    has already given several outstanding per-

    formances, including individual accom-

    plishments that helped propel the team to a

    second place finish in the recent Morris

    County Tournament. Several members of

    the senior class have left their mark on the

    mat during their final year at the high

    school, with significant milestones that

    have helped pave the way for a successful

    season. Since the start of 2013, the team has

    had two senior members reach a 100-win

    milestone, with a third classmate right

    behind. Top performances by senior class

    members have helped push the team into

    top places at the championship meets, with

    exciting wins and narrow losses dominating

    the headlines as the team progresses

    through the season.

    West Morris Central High School senior

    Jesse Windt set both a personal and a school

    record at the tournament, earning a second

    place finish for the team with a gutsy per-

    formance that earned him a coveted victory

    in the world of high school wrestling.

    During the meet, Windt managed to defeat a

    Roxbury competitor, Steven Arthur, 2-0 at

    195 pounds. This victory made Windt the

    first Wolfpack County Champion in seven

    years and the first for 125 pounds. Windts

    victory is preceded by eight others in Morris

    County. He believes that his hard work and

    dedication in the off season helped prepare

    for this moment, and for his victorious sea-

    son in his final year at the school. In the

    months that he wasnt wrestling for the

    team, Windt could be found completing

    intensive training routines and taking les-

    sons with SIR wrestling, a New Jersey-

    based wrestling club that offers training for

    wrestlers of all abilities.

    The high school teams courageous per-

    formance in the tournament earned them a

    second place finish behind Delbarton, with

    a total of 174.5 points. West Morris Central

    was the top-earning public school team, fol-

    lowed by Roxbury with a total of

    173.5.Delbarton won the meet with a grand

    tally of 215.5 points. There were a total of

    24 schools competing in the meet. West

    Morris Central senior Brandon Carcuffe

    took second place, edging out Jon Patane of

    Personal Accomplishments and Big Wins Highlight theWest Morris Central Wrestling Teams Season

    Roxbury, 11-4. Carcuffe lost to top-seeded

    Delbarton wrestler Danny Reed in the final

    round. Several other wrestlers placed in the

    meet, with bronze medals going to team

    members Cory Fleming, Nick Matthews,

    and Adam Kratch.

    Another shining moment for West

    Morris Central wrestling came earlier this

    year when Carcuffe became the second

    wrestler to win 100 matches for the West

    Morris Central wrestling team. His accom-

    plishment was mere weeks behind that of

    Nick Matthews, who won 100 matches in

    January and is also a senior at the school. A

    third senior, John Sickles, is close behind

    them with 99 wins so far this season. Coach

    By Kate Halse

    The West Morris Regional High

    School District, which has long had

    an outstanding reputation for innova-

    tion and strong student standings, attracted

    international attention early this year whena group of Japanese delegates visited West

    Morris Central High School. The delegates

    were impressed with the International

    Baccelaurate (IB) program at the high

    school and wanted a chance to get an inside

    look at the school and to find out how the

    program has become so successful since its

    inception. While the delegates did not come

    to NJ solely for this purpose (they were in

    the state to visit Rutgers), the program has

    such a solid reputation that it immediately

    captured their attention. The delegates were

    anxious to learn more about the IB programand to explore ways in which they could

    make it as successful at schools in Japan.

    West Morris Central High School has

    been part of the IB program since 1998.

    According to the official International

    Baccelaurate website,, the

    program is student-focused, with four pro-

    IB Program at West Morris Central Captures International Attentiongrams that strive to provide the necessary

    background for students aged 3 to 19 to

    develop the intellectual, personal, emotion-

    al and social skills to live, learn and work in

    a rapidly globalizing world. The high

    school aims to teach students from fresh-man through senior grades these important

    skills as they navigate their way through

    their high school years and beyond. This

    program plays a helpful role in setting up

    students for life after school, whether their

    plans include going to college or entering

    the work force.

    The local high school is one of a few

    around the country that has successfully

    implemented and run the IB program. The

    website states: Founded in 1968, we cur-

    rently work with 3,501 schools in 144 coun-tries to develop and offer four challenging

    programmes to over 1,069,000 students

    aged 3 to 19 years. Among these schools,

    West Morris Central stood out to the

    Japanese delegates as one that has success-

    fully intertwined academics, giving students

    and teachers satisfying results. This method

    is what Japanese schools are striving for, as

    it gives students and teachers a disciplined

    and structured way of learning both inside

    and outside the classroom.

    Perhaps one of the biggest keys to the

    success of the IB program at West Morris

    Central High School is the fact that it allows

    students to grow and develop with guid-

    ance, rather than just have the teachers give

    them information and answers in the class-

    room. With the freedom to choose thecourses they wish to take and to pace them-

    selves at an appropriate rate, the students

    will feel like they have more control over

    their current and future success in school.

    Another positive aspect of this program is

    that it is virtually open to all students with-

    in the community, and welcomes any stu-

    dent who wishes to pursue one or more IB

    courses. The program does not require stu-

    dents to test into a course, giving them the

    opportunity to make the choices they feel

    are best suited for their needs and desires.At West Morris Central High School,

    students are encouraged to use the IB pro-

    gram to gain further understanding and

    knowledge of the world around them,

    applying and learning important academic

    and social skills that will help them during

    school and after graduation. The strong

    example set by the school continues to set

    the academic and personal achievement bar

    higher for both students and teachers, mak-

    ing it an important component of their edu-

    In the movie, "It's A Wonderful Life,"starring Jimmy Stewart and DonnaReed, there's a scene at Nick's bar

    where George Bailey says to Clarence theangel, "what's the matter with him, I'venever saw Nick act like that before," (refer-ring to Nick the bartender's inhospitable

    treatment of Clarence the angel) Clarenceturns to George and says," You'll see a lot ofstrange things from now on." In the sameway, we, the citizens of the United States ofAmerica, are going to "see a lot of strangethings" coming from the Obama administra-tion in the days to come. Most importantly,America's financial health, which is headedin the wrong direction.

    It seems clear, that the power brokers areincreasingly more desperate and openlycalling for the destruction of the US dollar.Recently, Commerce Bank chairman andCEO David Kemper called on the fed toprint an extra 30 trillion dollars in bondswhich would allow the Fed to return anadditional $900 billion to the Treasury, intheory, wiping out most of our federaldeficit while avoiding actually having to doanything about current government spend-ing.

    Mainly because, we as a society have nostomach for trying to reduce our soaringdeficit and our accelerating entitlement pro-grams. No one in our federal governmentseems to be willing to work out a long-termfiscal solution for it's spending addiction.

    But what about inflation? Bank reservesare growing again, which is an indicationthat they aren't loaning money, but insteadbanks are happy to hold their reserves withthe central bank and collect a fraction of apercent in interest. If those reserves start tofind it's way back into the economy at arapid rate, inflation will heat up very fast.This will bring higher interest rates andmake it too costly for the FederalGovernment to finance its deficits. We'retalking a recession here, unless the Fedprints more money to buy the debt. How

    long can Fed do that before people lose faithin the dollar? Can you say Zimbabwe?

    Government spending is not keeping upwith the economy. The Bureau of EconomicAnalysis recently reported that the UnitedStates' GDP dropped .1% in the fourth quar-ter of 2012. This is the first time the GDPhas shrunk since 2009. A healthy economyisn't dependent on Government for growth.A healthy economy thrives on businessinvestment, job growth and entrepreneur-ship. Government spending to sustain theeconomy does not work in the long-term.

    It's like drinking coffee to stay awake, youcan only do it for so long.

    Washington power brokers are makingthe case with a sledge hammer, with themain stream media in their pockets, that wecan not cut spending because it will hurt theeconomy.

    However, according to Harvard

    University's Albert Alesinia "spending cutsare far more effective than tax increases instabilizing debt and avoiding economicdownturns. Spending cuts adopted to reducedeficits have been associated with econom-ic expansions rather than recessions."TheObama administration has injected billionsof dollars into the economy, that includesauto bailouts and stimulus and where has itgotten us?16.4 trillion dollars in debt andmillions people looking for work.

    Now is the time for Washington to take aserious look at it's priorities. Obama's poli-cies need to be reversed, America shouldonce again become a place where the idealsof working hard, playing by the rules andearned success is rewarded. But no, we livein a time under Obama, where families arestruggling to make ends meet and success isdemonized and Washington continues tothrive.

    The solution is to cut spending, and itcould happen with a process know assequestration. What is sequestration? It's aseries of automatic, across-the-board spend-ing-cuts to government agencies, totaling$1.2 trillion over 10 years. Sequestration is

    also an attempt to get a handle on thegrowth of the U.S. national debt, whichexploded upward with the bailouts in 2007under George W. Bush and continued withBarack Obama's reckless spending and nowstands at more than $16 trillion.

    The sequester deadline has been comingfor more than a year, the President and theCongress pushed it back to March 1st aspart of the fiscal cliff deal at the end ofDecember.

    Republicans in the house have an oppor-tunity to cut spending and reduce the deficit

    by sitting on their hands by letting thesequester become effective. In other words,if the Republicans " do nothing" it will begood for the economy. But, inquiring mindswant to know if the Republicans will snatchdefeat from the jaws of victory again.

    Stupid is as stupid does. And, when itcomes to today's Republicans Party, asstupid says.

    The past several years have been quite theshow, with the Tea Party led Republicanssaying and doing some of the stupidestthings imaginable.

    Not too long along it was impossible tobelieve that any member of Congress would

    even think to allow the United States todefault on its debts. No more, as the TeaParty Republicans gave new meaning toabsurd. Even today, Tea Partiers areclamoring for the Congress to not allow theso called debt ceiling to rise to cover ourdebts unless their ideas for draconian andimmediate spending cuts are implemented.Even when it comes to emergency aid, theseTea Partiers voted no, against aid to NewJersey, New York and Connecticut unlesstotally unrelated spending cuts were imple-mented, holding hostage the taxpayingAmerican citizens of these states. As ithappens, the conservative government inthe United Kingdom has implemented theTea Partiers ideas for immediate spendingcuts, sending their country into a triple diprecession and actually expanding theirdeficit, along with some other ugly conse-quences. Thats exactly what these TeaPartiers would have us do.

    Climate change? It isnt just climatewarming. It does get a bit more compli-cated than a simple term. Whatever youcall it, scientists from around the world arevery clear on a consensus about the climate

    changes which are impacting us even asthey differ, as they must, on some details.But not those G-d fearing Conservatives.Nope. No need to make any changes in ourbehavior or infrastructure as they reject(reject!) all those scientists. Why? Becausethese conservatives reject science itself.

    Be it absurd pronouncements on rape, onthe rights of minorities to vote, to the teach-ing of creationism in classrooms, to theirchildlike absolutism on a whole host ofissues, not least of which is gun control, theRepublican Party is now, officially,

    Americas Stupid Party. Facts are out.Rigid ideology is in. Ideology based inunsupported, even disproven, beliefs.

    Republicans have spent years now doingand saying lots of stupid things. Thats notme talking, thats not my word. Its thelabel given by Republicans themselves intheir current Kabuki performance of sup-posed self reflection that isnt fooling any-one. From dismissing global climatechange as a Liberal fiction to dismissingscience itself (Marco Rubio isnt sure if theEarth is actually millions of years old and

    he supports creationism being taught in ourschools science classes), to the basics ofhow democratic government functions(sure, let the federal government default onexisting debts, thatll show them Liberals!),the Republican Party has been on a realstreak of stupidisms. And lets not forgetthe downright stupid statements their offi-cials, candidates and spokespeople continueto make (rape, anyone?). Unfortunately, we

    are all paying a high price for this stupidity.But the election results did not go unno-ticed. And now the Republicans areshocked, shocked! They bemoan PresidentObamas second inaugural address. Hedidnt reach out to us, they say. Where wasthe bid for bi-partisanship? Say what?From the time of his first presidential cam-paign, President Obama was Mr. Bi-Partisanship. He not only sought out theRepublicans, his starting position on justabout any issue already incorporatedRepublican positions, much to the chagrinof Liberals. It was the CongressionalRepublicans who would have nothing of it.Obamas first term was four years ofRepublican intransigence, a purposefuleffort to deny any successful legislation forthe mere partisanship of it all, from the sole,single minded focus of making thePresident a one term President. That did-nt turn out too well. And now the train has,hopefully, left the station.

    Lets understand something. Obamacareitself is a Republican based plan, pushed byPresident Obama in the spirit of bi-partisan-ship. The rest of the civilized world uses a

    single payer based system, with privateinsurance supplementing universal health-care for all residents. Thats what Liberalswere calling for. Yet even thoughRepublicans denounce it now, the currentlaw is based on the Republican plan to makesure private insurance companies remainthe defacto directors of healthcare inAmerica, with ever rising premiums andever decreasing benefits.

    Regrettably today, driven by TeaPartiers, the Republican Party is little morethan the Confederacy. Lots of very angry

    white people who view themselves as vic-tims. All the smart people in theRepublican Party have either died, left theparty, or have become so outnumbered andcowed as to be irrelevant. With the TeaPartiers still in control, were in for anotherfew election cycles between the Democratsand the Stupids. Eventually, though, thesmart people will be back. Its just going totake a while. Hey, Sarah Palin is gone.Thats a start, no?
