    Memorial Day Celebration given for the

    Washington Township Vets that occurred

    Saturday, May 23, 12 noon at the Senior Center at

    Rock Spring Park, Long Valley.

    Girl Scout Troop # 94097 traveled their journey to accom-

    plish the Bronze award by collecting fifteen plus hourshelping in the preparation and hosting of this event. The

    preparation included making patriotic "swaps" which are

    pins, and bracelets to hand out to all those who attended.

    They then prepared all kinds of delicious treats for them to

    enjoy after the ceremony concluded. The day of the event,

    they arrived early and helped decorate the park and the sen-

    ior center. During the event, they greeted guests, handed

    out their "swaps" and the programs as guests arrived. They

    had the honor of walking in the procession for the event

    along with many Washington Township Veterans, active

    soldiers, a Keynote speaker by the name of CPT Anthony F.Roberts, Knights of Columbus, Fire Fighters and other boy

    and girl scouts. Two of my girls helped two veterans pres-

    ent a wreath and placed it under the flag. It was truly a

    moving ceremony and an honor to have my girls partici-

    pate. After the ceremony was over, they cleaned up thegrounds inside the center and outside the park.

    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 scien-

    tists; all while you were sitting in an upright position without turn-

    ing or twisting movements?

    Advances in computers and engineering technologies have

    been able to uniquely blend with chiropractic in order to both ana-

    lyze and treat the human body in such a way that was never before


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

    erized 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 treat the

    spine and other joints to remove the nerve impingement that is

    often the cause of pains in the low back, neck, shoulder and else-

    where in the body. It also works on a variety of muscular condi-

    tions to loosen tight muscles with ease and comfort. Many patients

    say that its like getting a mini-massage.

    It can also help increase the amount of motion in almost any

    joint. Even patients with knee, hip and foot problems such as plan-

    tar 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 the slightest

    amount of restriction in a joint and then deliver an extremely pre-

    cise adjustment. He says that Even though traditional forms ofadjusting 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

    techniques, all of which are safe and effective,

    but there are a large number of people who never

    get to experience the amazing benefits of chiro-practic 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 be able to experience thesesame 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, measurable and

    extremely gentle. There is no guesswork, and its safe for indi-

    viduals of all ages. Call our office today and mention this article

    to receive a FREE ProAdjuster analysis to pin-point your prob-

    lem area and see how the ProAdjuster can help. Call within the

    next 7 days and you will also receive a complimentary nerve

    stress scan and computerized muscle test that can show the areas

    of your stress and how its affecting your body. Call 908-876-

    8777 today to reserve your free ProAdjuster Analysis Scan.

    (Reg. $125)

    This technological marvel can help you return to a healthier

    lifestyle. You may no longer have to live with a persistent,

    painful condition. Call us today.

    Melanie M. Nowling, resident of Netcong, and

    Certified PiYo Instructor, is bringing the newest

    fitness phenomenon to our area, PiYo. The mom

    of two and Independent Beachbody Coach states that this

    revolutionary fitness program, soon to be released by

    renowned fitness mogul Beachbody, is perfect for anyone

    looking to recreate their body without damaging it.

    According to Ms. Nowling, PiYo gives you the same results

    as the high intensity Beachbody programs you are more

    familiar with like Insanity and T25, without the jumping

    and jarring effects on your joints. Students leaving from her

    weekly class, held in the Netcong School Gymnasium, arejust as sweaty and winded as those having completed an

    hour long cardio session.

    A typical PiYo class is made up of ten different compo-

    nents ranging from the warm-up to lower body focus, full

    body fusion, core, and of course lots of planks and the PiYo

    Push Up! Ms. Nowling shared this class during her FIT-

    CLUB program at the Netcong School in May and June as

    well as at local charity events. If you would like to bring

    this program to your community or fitness center, contact

    Ms. Nowling at [email protected] You may also

    tions, says Dr. James Wolf of Wayne, facility director and

    chiropractor at NJ Spinal Care. It is great for all chronic

    conditions as well as acute recovery.

    In its 12th year, NJ Spinal Care provides a multi-disci-

    plinary approach to health care. Four chiropractors, four

    physical therapists, one massage therapists and one

    acupuncturist are all working together to achieve results,

    says Wolf. This is one of the few places you can go and

    have every aspect or chronic condition treated simultane-


    Services such as class four laser, traditional modalities,

    physical therapy, chiropractic care and acupuncture and

    whole body cryotherapy are offered.

    Wolf received the new Cryotherapy Machine just five

    months ago. Whole-body Cryotherapy was first introduced

    in Japan in 1978, and subsequently worldwide. Although

    used in Europe by mostly professional athletes, the tech-

    nology was recently brought over to the United States byprofessional hockey players, explains Wolf.

    Experts wanted to offer the treatment to the general ath-

    lete, as well as those who suffer from chronic conditions.

    Cryotherapy is the whole-body or localized use of

    extremely cold temperatures in therapy from below zero

    temperatures, from negative 230 degrees Fahrenheit to

    negative 300 degrees Fahrenheit. The term "cryotherapy"

    comes from the Greek words cryo meaning cold and

    therapy meaning cure. The goal of cryotherapy treatment

    is to offer better health and a faster recovery from injury,

    with the reduction of inflammation, pain relief and

    improved mobility.

    In cold temperatures, blood vessels quickly constrict

    forming a protective layer while the core body temperature

    is maintained. The process naturally stimulates blood cir-

    culation as the body's hormone, immune, and nervous sys-

    tems are activated.

    Patients receiving Cryotherapy are placed into the

    Cryotherapy Machine, which is like a stand-up tanning

    bed, explains Wolf. Users wear underwear, gloves, socks

    and slippers and are inside the machine for two to three

    minutes. Liquid nitrogen gets pumped into the chamber

    lowering the temperature, making it the coldest place on

    earth, says Wolf.

    Wolf explains that while the gas gets

    penetrated a half inch, the brain is triggered

    into thinking you are freezing to death.

    The organs, therefore respond, and act bydetoxifying the blood and getting rid of all

    inflammatories. It oxidizes the blood,

    bringing healing to the tissues, muscles and


    Wolf describes the feeling similar to the

    chill one feels when exiting a pool after an

    evening swim, just slightly magnified. It

    penetrates a half inch deep so you dont

    have that bone chilling cold. Unlike ice, its

    a systematic process that affects the blood.

    Your body is feeling the cold, blood circu-

    lates and is the healer.Wolf compares the Cryotherapy treat-

    ment to an ice bath, but unlike an ice bath

    that can take 20 minutes to work, the

    Cryotherapy machine takes only two to

    three minutes. Also with an ice bath, an

    individual would have to wait 40 minutes

    to get his body temperature back to normal;

    whereas with Cryotherapy, it takes sec-

    onds to get back to normal body tempera-


    You dont feel miserable like you do in

    an ice bath, says Wolf, with the

    Cryotherapy treatment. There are also no

    side effects.

    You can accomplish more in two to

    three minutes, what used to take 25 to 30

    minutes, says Wolf. Its the least invasiveway to heal the soft tissues.

    To be a candidate of the Cryotherapy

    treatment, patients must be 14 years old or

    older and can not have a history of blood


    The only other locations in the Tri-State

    area to have a Cryotherapy machine are the

    New York Knicks,New York Ranges, and

    another practitioner.

    Its a newer technology, says Wolf,

    As a faculty we try to institute new tech-

    nologies. The distributor of the machine isin Texas.

    Statistics have shown a very high suc-

    cess rate, says Wolf, especially in the area

    of herniated discs, shoulder, knee and hip

    injuries. Most patients include the average

    weekend warrior, college and professional

    football players and high school athletes.

    NJ Spinal Care offers a free consultation

    to determine whether a patient would be a

    good candidate for the Cryotherapy treat-

    ment. For more information, call NJ Spinal

    The N.J. Republican party did it again.They elected the same old tired moderates tocongress, and Steve Lonnegan lost his bid forcongress in the third district in Ocean andBurlington Counties.

    N.J's three moderate, corporate congress-man, owned by the Main Street Partnership,Rep. Lance, Rep Freylinhuysen, and Rep.LoBiondo won their primaries. Why? It's allabout the money. They out spent their rivals

    by more than a 20-1 margin, yes money is themother's milk of politics. Van Glahn, 53, aself-employed home improvement contractorgave Rodney Frelinghyusen in the 11th dis-trict a respectable challenge by capturing 34% of the vote.

    The Lance - Larsen race, although 8points apart (54-Lance 46-Larsen) had theLance camp sweating bullets on electionnight. The Republican establishment hateswhen a conservative candidate gets that close,especially when they out spend him by morethan 20-1. Here's the numbers, 2200 hundredvotes separated the candidates. That means

    that Dave Larsen only needed 1200 votes towin, and here's the rub. It was a low-turnout,

    election. If more conservatives (pro-life andgun owners) had turned out, the results wouldhave been different.

    All that said, much thanks to the voters ofWashington Twp. and Morris County who didturn out. Dave Larsen won big here by almosta 2-1 margin. Larsen was also very close inSomerset county and was only down by about200 votes.

    But why is the Republican party in disar-

    ray? Simple, you are not fairly represented.When it comes to the economy, paying taxes,healthcare, illegal immigrants and education,you've been thrown under the bus, and politi-cal labels don't matter.

    We're all conservative to one point oranother. Every citizen wants a good job, andlow taxes, with a good income to afford thenecessities that make life comfortable. Noone likes to pay more taxes. The Republicanparty no longer cares about these issues, itrepresents corporate interests, not the the wel-fare of their constituents as we witnessedwhen Rep. Lance voted to increase electricity

    rates and oil and gas rates over the last 6

    We hear it all the time from those onthe right. Hold on to your princi-pals. Hold tight to your values. To

    a point, thats fine. Reasonable people willagree that we all must have some core set ofvalues that guide our lives. But the rightwingers today confuse guiding their ownlives with being able to dictate policies thataffect everyone.

    Thinking people know that the values and

    principles which guide our views on publicpolicy must be supported by real world evi-dence and real world experience. And wemust, at least occasionally, conduct somekind of internal review of what we think thosevalues are and if they are still valid. After all,we grow older. We gain experience each andevery day. Life happens. We are just not thesame people today that we were yesterday.The world around us is a dynamic and everchanging place. Is it not?

    So Im personally reassured that my corevalues still deserve my allegiance. Its stillbetter to be honest than not. Im sure that sci-

    ence still trumps faith when it comes toexplaining the real world we live in. And its

    still better to treat those who dont look likeus with the same respect and care that wehave for those who do look like we do.

    What I cannot fathom is how, or why, somany people on the right (what used to be thefringe right but is now just the regular right)cling to their rigid ideological views in theface of an onslaught of evidence that theirviews are just plain wrong.

    Gay rights: There are no legal scholars,

    other than very right wing quacks, who todaymaintain that laws against same sex marriageare anything but unconstitutional. Judges allover the country, whether Republican orDemocratic, conservative or liberal, haveconsistently come to the same conclusion.And yet there they are. People on right, theTea Party Evangelicals and their ilk, clingingto their rigid ideology that gay people are lessequal than they themselves.

    Mind you, I do not begrudge the rightwingers their religious beliefs, no matter howbizarre and hypocritical they may be.Freedom of thought, freedom of belief, free-

    dom of expression. These are all core indi-

    Deborah Torrance,Dipl. Ac., C.A.

    Recently, I have been getting a lot of phone calls askingme if acupuncture can treat anxiety disorders. My answer isalways yes. I have treated many patients over the years withanxiety; acupuncture is indeed a powerful treatment fordepression and anxiety. Anxiety disorders affect about 40million American adults age 18 years and older (about 18%).In a given year, it affects women twice more than men. InWestern medicine, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is apsychological and physiological state characterized byexcessive, exaggerated anxiety and worry about everydaylife events with no obvious reasons for worry. People withsymptoms of GAD tend to always expect disaster and can'tstop worrying about things such as health, money, family,work, or school. In people with GAD, the worry often isunrealistic or out of proportion for the situation. Therefore,daily life becomes a constant state of worry, fear, and dread.Eventually, the anxiety dominates the person's thinking andeventually interferes with daily functioning.

    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views anxiety notas a brain dysfunction, but more as an inner organs dysfunc-tion. TCM theory holds that certain Organs plays a role inthe emotions. Emotions and organs health are intimatelyconnected. The organs can develop imbalances and dysfunc-tions due to dietary, environmental, lifestyle, and hereditary

    factors. By understanding these connections, we can seehow anxiety disorder might be due to an imbalance and dys-function in different organs. Worry, dwelling, or focusingtoo much on a particular topic, excessive mental work are

    symptoms of a Spleen disorder. Lack of enthusiasm andvitality, mental restlessness, depression, insomnia, despairare symptoms of a Heart disorder. Liver emotional symp-toms are anger, resentment, frustration, irritability, bitter-ness, and "flying off the handle. With Lung disorders, wesee more grief, sadness, and detachment. And finally, withan imbalance of the Kidneys, a person may be fearful, inse-cure, aloof, isolated, and have weak willpower. While theHeart is said to store the Shen or spirit, in all anxiety cases,the Shen or spirit is disturbed.

    While a generalized anxiety disorder always affects theShen, either primarily or secondarily, calming and harmo-nizing the Shen will be the fundamental treatment. TCMclassifies the cause of the disorders according to the extentto which individual Organs demonstrate signs and symp-toms of disturbance and the extent to which their Qi or ener-gy is affected. In anxiety, the most common injured organsare the Spleen and Heart. When there is a disturbance in oneor more of these organs from any cause, an imbalancedemotional state can happen. Therefore, anxiety will be divid-ed into several different types by Chinese Medicine:

    1. Heart/Spleen Qi Deficiency: preoccupation, obsessiveworry, aversion to speaking, palpitations, insomnia, fatigue,poor appetite, abdominal distention, teeth mark in the

    The benefits of warm weather are numerous and includethe opportunity to spend long hours outdoors enjoyingthe fresh air. Increased time spent outside, whether at

    parks, beaches or right in one's own backyard, means agreater likelihood of coming into contact with wildlife. Justas people are anxious to frolic in the nice weather, so, too, isnearby wildlife.

    Chance encounters between people, pets and wildlife aregenerally uneventful. However, should such encountersinclude a rabid animal, the consequences can be grave.

    The rabies virus affects the central nervous system, caus-ing disease in the brain and eventually death. Without prompt

    treatment, death can occur rather quickly. Lyssavirus rabies,the rabies virus, typically enters the body of a human or otheranimal through a bite or scratch from an infected animal.Saliva from infected animals and bat guano also may trans-mit rabies to humans in certain circumstances. Racoons,skunks, foxes, woodchucks, and bats have been known to

    transmit rabies, while small mammals, such as squirrels, rats,mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rabbits, andhares, are only rarely infected with rabies and have not beenknown to cause rabies among humans in the United States.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say initialsymptoms may be difficult to recognize because the fever,

    Understanding Rabies Can Protect Pets and Their Ownersheadache and general discomfort common to rabies infec-tions are similar to those of many other illnesses. As rabiesprogresses, anxiety, paralysis, excitation, hallucinations,hypersalivation, and agitation can develop. A person exposedto rabies should ideally be treated within 12 to 48 hours forthe best outcome. Treatment for pets can vary.

    Dogs that have not been vaccinated and cats that wereexposed to a rabid animal are often euthanized immediately.Otherwise, the pet may be placed in strict isolation andobserved for six months. Dogs and cats that receive a rabiesvaccine are typically kept for observation for 45 days.Animals with expired vaccinations will be evaluated on acase-by-case basis, according to the CDC.

    Rabies has been a problem for centuries. The term"rabies" is a Latin word meaning "madness or rage." Rabieshas been reported in historical documents since about 2300B.C.

    Although cases of rabies infections acquired from dogs

    have been virtually eliminated, there is an increasing inci-dence of rabies in wild animals, and bats and raccoons areparticularly susceptible carriers.

    Rabid animals may be aggressive and drooling, but inmany cases rabid animals are withdrawn, making it difficultto determine if you are face-to-face with a rabid animal. Toplay it safe, avoid contact with animals known to transmitrabies, particularly raccoons, which can be aggressive even ifnot afflicted. Dogs and cats should not be left unattended ina yard for extended periods of time. If a municipality issueswarnings about increased rabies outbreaks in the area, takethem seriously. Keep pets up-to-date on rabies vaccines,which remain the most effective preventative measure

    against the disease.

    vidual rights that all Americans cherish and hold dear. No, no.It is the right wing rigid ideology that they may impose theirreligious beliefs upon the rest of us. That they may deny equal

    rights to those whom they believe are undeserving becausethey are not like themselves. I expect that these people willcling to these rigid beliefs right up to the time the fiftieth statefinally allows and recognizes same sex marriage. And evenafter that. Not smart.

    Second Amendment Rights: A real sticking point here,as right wingers cling to their tenuously reasoned belief thatthey have unfettered rights to not only own guns, but to takethem wherever theyd like. No restrictions. And no responsi-bilities upon them if their guns, or the unimpeded proliferationof guns in American society, cause needless and avoidabledeath and harm and suffering.

    It is one thing to have rights. Unalienable rights. It is quiteanother thing to cling, with a childlike rigidity, to views that

    hold that you have all rights and no corresponding responsi-bilities. Only rigid extremists would hold that any right is

    absolute and not subject to reasonable restrictions. Not smart.Science: I keep seeing survey after survey reporting that

    more than half of todays conservatives believe that the bibleis literally true. That the Earth is merely a few thousand yearsold. That the animals, including humans, the live today werecreated exactly as they exist today. These people reject sci-ence. They deny the undeniable, especially concerning glob-al climate changes. Not smart.

    Rigid values? Sure. And if you want to hold these values,to cling to them, go right ahead. Just dont look to imposethem on the rest of us. The public policy views, and values,of the right wing extremists in America have no factual foun-dation or support. No. The Earth is not flat. Unfortunately wecannot just ignore these people. The extremism and obstruc-tionism we see being wrought by these people in our societyis causing real and ongoing harm. We are all paying a heavyprice with needless and avoidable damage to our freedoms, toour heath and well being, and, especially in the case of guns,

    our very lives. Not smart.Send comments to [email protected]

    years.Moreover, does the N.J. Republican party have a long term

    plan to take back the N.J. legislature from the progressiveDemocrats and change the direction of N.J. to a free prosper-ous economy? Has your property taxes gone down since ChrisChristie was elected Gov.

    Christie had no coat tails in his reelection last November.The N.J legislature remained in Democratic control. Christie,despite having the opportunity to appoint four of seven jus-tices on the N. J. court since taking office, Christie has repeat-edly nominated individuals with no discernible judicial phi-losophy. Liberal judges strike down constitutional laws.

    Christie doomed N. J. until the year 2030 when heappointed liberal Democrat, Stuart Rabner to Chief Justice tothe state supreme court position in a deal he made withDemocratic majority leader, Stephen Sweeny. N.J. law statesthat a judge must resign at age 70, for Stuart Rabner, that's in2030.

    Further, Chris Christie wants to post pone pension pay-ments and create an unfunded liability (debt)of $46 billion

    dollars in order to bridge a budget gap of more than $2 billionover the current and next fiscal years. Such a move wouldprompt a credit downgrade, making it more expensive forNew Jersey to borrow money.

    Now, between the congressman mentioned earlier in thearticle voting with big corporations and Obama, and Gov.Christie's political exploits, does the N.J. Republican partyrepresent you?

    Who is Jeff Bell, and do you care? Jeff Bell, age 70, wasthe NJGOP's Senate nominee back in 1978 and now in 2014.Bell is an author, a political consultant and a former presiden-tial speech writer.

    I'm not against anyone because of their age, but I'm againsta political party that does not include younger generations in

    elections. Bell's candidacy is like watching old men playBocci in the park, and you and the kids are not invited.

    Republican Party in Disarray...After Christie's special senatorial election last October,

    where Corrie Booker trounced Steve Lonnegan, Christie hasmade a mockery of any opportunity to have a RepublicanSenator represent the State of N.J.

    Jeff Bell will not beat Corrie Booker in November, thedemographics are just not there. Bell's candidacy is just forshow, he doesn't represent you or your kids, he's just a well-to-do Republican, well past the age of retirement, running togetting his name in the papers to satisfy his ego. When I voteepublican, I expect to be represented by my elected officials,but I'm not, it seems they're more interested in endorsing eachfor the next election.

    You and I been left behind, the NJ Republican party has nolong term plan to stop the liberal Democrats from destroyingthe state and has thrown you and your kids under the bus.

    The NJ Republican party has become the Democratic lightparty and I do not want to see Chris Christie be the Republicannominee in 2016. I do not want him to destroy America likethe current occupant of the White house has done.

    The Republican Party's positions on the issues go againstthe core principles of the Conservative base of the Republicanparty, our nation is deteriorating like Detroit. There's nolonger anything there for responsible people to vote for.Incumbent fever, is no reason to vote straight down theRepublican ticket.

    And for those reasons it shouldn't be a surprise to myfriend Bill Wolgamouth that conservative Republicans won'tblindly support the Republican ticket in November.

    Cars lined the street on Saturday, May

    31, to celebrate the 65th Anniversary

    of Bills Luncheonette onDover

    Chester Rd. in Ironia.A few hundred people attended The Old

    Fashioned Block Party from 2 p.m. until

    dark enjoying free hot dogs, hamburgers,

    ice-cream and prizes to reminisce on days

    past and be the first to see the newly reno-

    vations to the luncheonette. Family, friends,

    current and former employees gathered at

    the building that dates back more than 150

    years, and had been used as a general store

    and post office before converted to a lunch-


    Third-generation family owner, Bruce

    Button, 28 of Madison, closed the lunch-

    eonette from May 26 to May 30 to complete

    some minor renovations before the gather-

    ing. Among the improvements included a

    new floor and installation of booths. The

    well-needed changes provided a facelift

    while maintaining the character of the

    charming old structure.

    Some were concerned on how it would

    turn out, says Kathy Crowley-Sheehy of

    Randolph, mother of Button, and daughter

    of Bill, who ran the business as Bills

    Luncheonette & General Store until he died

    eight years ago. Most were happily sur-

    prised and loved the remodeling. They

    were thrilled we kept the old feel and

    charm that was there.

    Located just on the border of Chester and

    Ironia in Randolph on Dover Chester Rd.,

    Bills Luncheonette still thrives after 65

    years of business enjoyed by residents in

    surrounding towns of Randolph, Mendham,

    Chester and Roxbury. Known for good

    prices, cleanliness and old country-style

    diner ambiance, Bills Luncheonette is

    open for breakfast and lunch.

    Some of the customers favorite entrees

    include omelets like the Chile Cheddar

    Omelet, home fries, pancakes, handmade

    burgers, fantastic homemade Chile, milk-

    shakes and egg-creams.

    The specialties are named after people

    such as the Momlette, an omelet made

    with spinach, tomatoes and swiss cheese;

    Mister D Sandwich, named after a long-

    time customer, with taylor ham, egg, swiss

    cheese, fried onions on a sub roll; Pops

    Pudding, grandpas new secret recipe of rice


    Button plans to add some healthier items

    to his menu, more salad options next to his

    existing chicken Caesar salad; and plans to

    increase his ice-cream selection. Customers

    Local Hub Celebrates 65 Years With Block Party

    can get ice-cream cones, sundaes, milk-

    shakes, egg creams, root beer floats and ice-

    cream sodas.

    With the remodeling we got a new ice

    cream dipping cabinet with eight flavors of

    Welsh Farms Ice Cream, says Sheehy.

    Bill's has always been known for great


    He also plans to keep the restaurant open

    a little later until 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. in the near

    future to attract more customers who want

    to eat or enjoy an ice-cream later in the day.

    We get a lot of people that want to come

    in at three oclock, says Sheehy. Kids

    want to come in for ice-cream after highcontinued on next page

    Working on and off at his grandfathers

    business since he was 12, Button became

    the full-fledged owner about one year


    When I would come into work, hewould wipe tables when he was three years

    old, says Sheehy. He learned from his

    grandfather when he worked here as a

    teenager. He started to learn a lot more

    about the business; learned the tricks in

    cooking and dealing with customers. You

    kind of had to do everything when you

    worked here.Before Button took over, Sheehys broth-

    er, Reggie, ran the business for seven years

    but passed it on after becoming a police

    officer in Morris Twp. Reggie took over the

    business in 2006 when their dad, Bill, died.

    At that time, he removed the shelves and

    got rid of the groceries, but kept the lunch-


    The general store part wasn't doing wellin recent years because of all the conven-

    ience stores and additional supermarkets

    coming to the area, so when my Dad, Bill,

    passed away, the grocery portion went with

    him, says Sheehy. We still sell anything

    we use though. If someone needs eggs or

    milk or a pound of ham, we can make that

    happen. We still sell newspapers, orange

    juice, milk, eggs, baked goods, snacks, and

    also sell a lot of take-out coffee and sand-


    Bill Crowley had established BillsLuncheonette & General Store in 1949.

    Prior to that, the building was used as a gen-

    eral store, owned by Bills dad, Robert

    Bob Crawley. Bob purchased the struc-

    ture in 1941 after moving his family and

    goat farm from Kansas to Ironia that same


    The origin of the building dates back to

    1860, and was owned by David Stryker who

    operated it as Strykers General Store.

    There he sold butter and eggs from local

    farmers, as well as milk, flour, sugar,molasses, tea, coffee, candies, packaged and

    canned goods, says Sheehy.

    It was the only place to buy necessities

    for miles and miles around, she says. The

    building still retains many of its original

    windows and doors and lots of character. Its

    history is long and colorful, and the com-

    munity has been using it as a meeting place

    for over a century and a half.When the local iron boom hit, the area

    grew and with that the need for a post

    office, she explains. In 1871, Stryker

    became the very first Postmaster of Ironia

    and the Ironia Post Office was created

    inside his general store. Stryker eventually

    passed on the general store and building to

    his son, David R. Stryker, who also became

    a Postmaster of Ironia.

    When the younger Stryker was looking

    to retire, Bob Crowley knew he had to

    keep the store going in his new hometown,so in 1941 he purchased it for around $65,

    which included $25 for the cash register,

    describes Sheehy. The Crowleys also took

    over the post office, with two of his daugh-

    ters serving as Postmistress and then Bill as

    Postmaster, a position he held for 38 years

    starting in 1944.

    The whole Crowley family chipped in

    to keep the store going during this time,

    says Sheehy.

    Annual Field Day for amateur radio

    operators is coming up and the local

    radio group, Splitrock Amateur

    Radio Association is tuned in and ready for

    this years competition.Sponsored by the American Radio Relay

    League (AARL), the national organization

    for amateur radio operators, more than

    350,000 radio amateurs plan to gather on

    Saturday, June 28 through Sunday June 29at

    various locations around the country for the

    Annual AARL Field Day. The local

    Splitrock Amateur Radio Association plans

    to set up shop at Horseshoe Lake in


    About 60 members of the local group

    from Roxbury, Mt. Olive, Randolph,Hopatcong, Landing and Rockaway are

    looking forward to this years informal con-

    test, practice for emergencies and fun.

    I enjoy talking to people and making

    some contacts around the globe, says Bill

    Sohl of Mt. Olive, a member of Splitrock

    Amateur Radio Association (SARA) for the

    past 10 years. Its been something thats

    peaked my curiosity. Ive enjoyed being a

    ham. Its got to be fun or else why do it?

    Established in 1972, the SARA was

    formed when a group of interested amateurs

    got together and built an amateur radio

    repeater from used commercial equipment.

    It was located on a radio tower on the north

    end of Rockaway Township, near the

    Splitrock reservoir, how the club got its

    name. The call sign was initially WR2ADBThe repeater had been moved around

    several times over the years and was moved

    to its current location in June 2011 on top of

    a cellular phone tower in Roxbury.

    Field day had been established and is

    known as the most popular on the air

    event. Friend, groups and clubs throughout

    the U.S. and Canada set up and operate

    from remote locations to picnic, campout,

    practice for emergencies and compete by

    contacting as many other stations as possi-

    ble and operate radio gear in abnormal situ-ations, according the ARRL website.

    Field day is a day to stop by, say

    hello, says Sohl, and get the public

    involved to learn about the ARRL. His

    group, SARA, will have an information

    table at field day.

    The goal of field day is to provide

    emergency communication; to provide

    readiness. He recalls some years back

    when serious flooding in Jefferson Twp.

    caused the radio system with emergency

    services and police to go underwater.

    Field Day Promotes Interest To Radio HamsIndividuals with ham radio licenses

    were providing communications, says

    Sohl, during the incident.

    Field day involves a 24-hour operating

    period from 2 p.m. Saturday to 2 p.m.

    Sunday. Hams will set up their equipment 8a.m. that day. The objective is to show our

    ability to be ready with equipment that can

    be deployed with three or four stations; put-

    ting stations up; raising antennas; collecting

    antennas; then go on the air 2 p.m., into the

    night and into the afternoon the next day.

    We all help set up, says Sohl, and then

    everyone takes turns working in shifts to

    operate the system. We are a three-class

    operation, says Sohl, a medium sized clubcompared to larger ones that operate with

    seven or even eight stations.

    Sohl brings the equipment which

    includes a VHS Station which is made up of

    a receiver (less than 10 pounds); AC/DC

    converter; transmitter; and antenna system.

    Besides setting up shop, hams need to

    know how to communicate with other hamsand they compete to see how many con-

    tacts they can make. You can get awards

    from reaching certain operators.

    In previous years, Sohls group has made

    more than 1,000 contacts in the 24-hour

    period. In the U.S.exists more than 700,000

    amateur radio individuals, says Sohl.

    Field day is also the time to educate oth-

    ers about amateur radio, says Sohl. People,

    especially kids, at the park stop in as they

    are curious to what the group is doing.

    You have to keep the youth involved,says Sohl, so they can attract them and peak

    their interest.

    Sohls interest in radio, electricity and

    electronics dates back to memories of his

    dad who had a short wave radio when he

    was growing up. Sohl got his first radio

    license in 1958, and has been an expert in

    this hobby for the past 10 years, renewing

    his license every decade.

    In 1963, Sohl earned his associates

    degree in electronics; worked for IBM as an

    electric repairman of office equipment; and

    in 1966 worked four years as an electrical

    technician on a Navy Destroyer ship in the

    U.S. Navy. When he got out of the Navy, he

    worked as a telecommunications craftsmanfor companies such as AT&T, Verizon and

    Bell Laboratories.

    Members of SARA share interests in

    amateur radio with a common goal of talk-

    ing in greater distances with low power

    equipment through a centralized site to

    broadcast on a different frequency, explains

    Sohl. Hams can specialize in 50 areas such

    as building equipment, operating in differ-

    ent modes, and using Morris Code, digital

    data and more.

    I tend to operate VHF, very high fre-quency, above 30 megahertz, says Sohl,

    with the ability to contact with other ham

    operators around the globe. Sohl says he

    has been able to talk to people as far as

    Europe, South America and Canada.

    The SARA meets every second Tuesday

    of the month at the Mt. Arlington

    Community Center. Call Bill Sohl at 201-

    841-3501 for more information; visit the

    club at Horseshoe Lake the last weekend in

    June; or go to

    farm down the street,Crowley, decided to

    pass on the general store/Ironia Post-Office

    to his son Bill.

    Bill decided right away to add the lunch-

    eonette to the general store/ post office andthus Bills Luncheonette & General Store

    was born in 1949.

    He wanted to make it his own thing,

    says Sheehy. He was very dedicated, run-

    ning the place from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. at

    night. My father was a character. My father

    threw people out if they had their hat on

    backwards. It was his way of keeping con-

    trol and making sure that he ran a respectful

    place. He was old-schooled. It was an insult

    when you wore your hat backwards. You

    couldnt walk in with mud on your boots; hewould yell at people for that.

    In addition to the luncheonette, Bill

    helped to plan and build the Ironia

    Shopping Center in 1970, when he moved

    the Ironia Post Office to that location just

    100 yards away. He remained Postmaster

    until his retirement in 1982; ran both the

    post office and luncheonette in the two loca-

    tions every day; and also managed the

    Ironia Shopping Center for many years.

    Married twice with 11 children, Bill had

    a lot of helping hands.

    We all worked here, says Sheehy, an

    employee there since she was 11. The rule

    was you had to be able to reach the counter

    with a cup of coffee. Sheehy waited on

    customers, cleaned, dusted, swept, cooked.Over the years, so much has taken place

    inside the walls of this building, says

    Sheehy. It has sold wagons and wagon

    wheels, clothes, hay, feed, coal, kerosene,

    tobacco, ice cream, fresh local dairy and

    farm products, groceries, drugs, toys, pizza,

    deli items, anything from soup to nuts. It

    has been an outlet for Sears & Roebuck, a

    gas station, a deer-checking station, a pizze-

    ria, as well as a club meeting hall. For

    decades it had a juke box and pinball and

    video games, too.Though times do change, since 1860,

    this building continues to be the heart and

    hub of the surrounding community, says


    Its a meeting place, she says. Its

    where people have come in; you strike up a

    conversation or you run into a neighbor. So

    many time people come in and see someone

    they havent seen in 30 years. Its that kind

    of place where everybody talks to every-

    body. My son always says, its almost like

    a bar but without the alcohol.
