    Proverbs 3:5





    he 5th grade Junior Troop #162 girls who attend

    Bragg School in Chester just completed their

    Bronze Award This is the highest award a JuniorGirl Scout can achieve. They identified a need at the

    Chester Library for a space for kids who are in the in-

    between ages of 3-5th grades. The library has a "Teen

    Room" and a childrens room, but no area designated for

    this age group. They re-decorated an area within the chil-

    drens room and named it " Cool Kidz Reading Lounge" -

    a name in which most of the 5th grade voted on. Troop 162

    created a piece of artwork for this new space and the

    library funded the purchase of the new chairs, carpet, and

    ottomans. The girls used their girl scout cookie sales prof-

    it to help fund the project as well.

    Attention Medicare Beneficiaries

    The flagpole on the front lawn of the

    Morris County Courthouse on

    Washington Street in Morristown

    will be painted this weekend and will need

    approximately two weeks to cure. As a

    result, Morris County officials want thepublic to know that flags will not be flying

    from the flagpole during that time.

    In the interim, however, an American

    flag will be placed outside of the front

    entrance to the courthouse during regular

    business hours.

    Flags will again be flown as soon as theflagpole is able to accept them.

    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 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

    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.

    On Saturday, May 25th, the Morris County Parks

    Commission and Fosterfields Living Historical

    Farm will present "Civil War Remembrances", a

    special event on the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War.The location is truly appropriate because of its direct con-

    nection to this momentous time in Americas history.

    General Joseph Warren Revere, grandson of Paul

    Revere, purchased the property in the mid-1800s and built

    the impressive Gothic Revival home, The Willows.

    Charles Foster purchased the farm in 1881, changing its

    name to Fosterfields.

    Early in the Civil War, Revere was appointed colonel of

    the 7th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry. His courage and per-

    formance through many battles had him quickly moving up

    the ranks. However, the Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia

    in 1863 became Reveres most personally challenging timein his distinctive military career. Regrouping his men dur-

    ing the chaos of battle lead some to believe he was retreat-

    ing, which resulted in a court-martial. Eventually President

    Lincoln overturned the ruling, but General Revere turned in

    his resignation.

    Historian, actor and author William Chemerka will be

    portraying General Revere in the Willows, along with his

    wife Debbie as Mrs. Rosanna Revere. He will share with

    the public his experiences at Chancellorsvil le along with his

    undeserved court-martial. Bills latest book is about the

    Willows most celebrated inhabitant, titled General Joseph

    Warren Revere; the Gothic Saga of Paul Reveres


    In the Visitor Center, author and historian Robert Jones

    will present an impressive display of original Civil War arti-

    facts and memorabilia. The extensive exhibit covers just

    about everything related to the Civil War, but there is a

    strong emphasis on the personal side of the soldier what

    he carried, brought from home, or purchased from the camp


    Mr. Jones will also have available and will be signing his

    Civil War related books. Recently he completed his fourth

    book Civil War Artillery A Pictorial Introduction.Previous to that he has published The Civil War Canteen

    Second Edition and Battle of Gettysburg The Relics,

    Artifacts & Souvenirs. Although thousands of books have

    been written on Gettysburg, he was the first to have pub-

    lished an in-depth study with over 750 photographs on the

    rare battlefield relics and the unique souvenirs associated

    with the famous event.

    Anxious to get todays youth more involved in American

    History, Robert published his first childrens book titled

    Children at the Battle of Gettysburg Their Unforgettable

    Summer. The story itself is fictional, but based on actual

    events just prior to and through the famous 1863Pennsylvania battle. It lets children learn about Gettysburg

    and the Civil War in a fun and exciting way without even

    realizing it. The gory details of war were purposely avoid-

    ed and the kids today can put themselves directly in the

    middle of what was a calamitous experience by children

    Local Author has Book Signing and Civil War Exhibitsuch as them 150 years ago.

    This event is in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary

    of the Civil War and it is an opportunity for both young and

    old to experience and better understand the hardships and

    sacrifices which were made during the most horrendous

    time in our nations early beginning. Bob Jones and Bill

    Chemerka are both members of the 33rd New Jersey

    Volunteer Infantry and have been active in promoting Civil

    War history throughout New Jersey for over 20 years.

    Fosterfields is also a working farm with a variety of ani-

    mals - using the tools, techniques and materials of the 19th

    century. The event is on Saturday, May 25th and "Mr. and

    Mrs. Revere" will be at their front door to welcome all from

    1:00 3:30. Mr. Jones will be in the Visitors Center the

    entire day from 10:00 5:00 to discuss the Civil War, sign

    books, and explain the artifacts on display. Fosterfields is

    located at 73 Kahdena Rd., Morristown, NJ (973) 326-7645

    ou may recognize his name from hispast appearances on Saturday Night

    Live. These days, Breuer is also awell-known resident of Chester, where heuses his background in comedy to bringattention to important issues within thecommunity at The Hive.

    The Hive is located in the ChesterSprings mall, and is a new store in the area.This store is run by the Morris County ArtsWorkshop (MCAW), and is designed to pro-vide a creative outlet for people within thecommunity.

    Breuer, an author, filmmaker, and stand-up comedian, recently hosted a fundraising

    event for the MCAW. This event, titled "AnEvening With Jim Breuer" began with acomic impression of Jane Shatz, director ofMCAW. However, the smiles and laughterfrom the crowd turned to serious and atten-tive faces as Breuer began to describe thereason for the event.

    The comedian explained that he wasimpressed by the passion Shatz had for theorganization. Breuer continued on, statingthat he felt strongly about getting the artsout into the community. He explained that

    he began the Family Film Festival as aneffort to help "encourage arts here in

    Chester" with film classes and improvclasses. The goal, states Breuer, is for peo-ple to come to support the arts in their own

    community rather than traveling into a larg-er city.

    Breuer believes that The Hive is an opti-mal place for opportunities such as improvclasses. During the evening, he told theaudience that he could see himself usingThe Hive for many reasons, one of which isto storyboard his ideas. In addition, hewould like to use the space to teach animprov class for local children. Breuerexplained that there are many children with-in the community who are "dying to doimprov with nowhere to go."

    Part of his passion is to bring arts to chil-dren, as the programs tend to be the firstones cut in schools to help save money.Breuer noted that while education is certain-ly a vital component of any school, "it canput people in a box and smother the pas-sion." He continued on to say that passionshould be explored by all children, and notleft in the background.

    Breuer's involvement has been crucialnot just to get an important message out thecommunity, but also for the longevity of

    MCAW. Lori Klavsons, MCAW volunteer,was grateful for the time the comedian spent

    Jim Breuer Focuses on Making Art a Priorityin Chester and the Surrounding Area

    during his evening in town. Klavsons notedthat Breuer was helpful in several ways,helping to give their "almost non-existent

    budget" a boost, and to "keep free scholar-ships and lessons going."

    The event lasted for a total of two hours,and included many stories, many of whichrevolved around his career, life, family, andthe town of Chester. While many of hisstatements regarding the town broughtlaughter from the audience, there were sin-cere and truthful messages behind them.Some of the lines from the night include his

    jokes that "the neighbors live 40 milesaway" and that he uses a tractor to go trick-or-treating around town on Halloween.

    Chester residents are buzzing about the towns newestaddition The Hive, a storefront location for TheMorris County Arts Workshop (MCAW), the non-

    profit organization which brings after-school art, music,language arts, and cultural programs to youth and seniorsin Chester, Mendham, Mt. Olive and surrounding areas.The Hive officially opened with a ribbon cutting ceremonyon Saturday, April 20, 2013. It is situated in the ChesterSprings (ShopRite) Mall on Route 206 in Chester. Thespace incorporates an art gallery, performing arts space,class areas, casual seating for conversation and a potteryworkshop.

    The excitement surrounding its opening started mid-week with a special fundraising event hosted by Chesterresident,renowned stand-up comedian, author and filmmak-er Jim Breuer, formerly of Saturday Night Live.Addressing a sold out crowd, Breuer mesmerized the audi-

    ence with poignant stories about his experiences, tales thatbrought out thunderous laughter, an open Q&A segment,and, of course, his uncanny imitation and enthusiasm ofMCAW Founder and Director Jane Shatz. Breuer, who ison the board at MCAW, affirmed, I want to encourage thearts here in Chester. Yes, Chester! Film, improv, open micnights all here at The Hive so people can come here andnot have to go into the City.

    Breuer also announced he is planning another FamilyFilm Festival this summer with MCAW and ChesterRecreation. Last years event took place at the Gazebolawn in Chester and featured performances by MCAW andlocal bands and a series of homemade films submitted for

    prizes.The Hive activity continued well into the weekend.

    Chester Borough Mayor Robert Davis, Chester TownshipMayor Bill Cogger, and Billy Andrews, property managerof Ramco-Gershenson Properties, the owners of theChester Springs Mall, were on hand with a crowd of art

    patrons to assist Shatz in the ribbon cutting ceremony. BothMayor Davis and Mayor Cogger concurred they are grate-ful for MCAWs efforts and are active supporters of thearts. The Hive will bring a higher element in the educa-tion of the arts for children of all ages, commented MayorDavis.

    MCAW is amazing, added Mayor Cogger. Theyunderstand the arts are the core to a civilization and bring-ing people together.

    Andrews further pointed out that the concept of anactive art space, such as The Hive, in a retail mall is some-thing special.

    Other activities during the Grand Opening Celebration

    included performances by the MCAW string ensemble andrenowned jazz saxophonist and teacher Allen Won; live artby Charley Pellecer; crafts; Legos; and gallery previews.

    Chester Recreation Director Maxine Finney commented,Chester now has a place for the arts where the communitycan come together to be creative. She plans to host more

    Governors 2% CAP, I

    capped municipal spending

    to the rate of inflation!

    As a Parsippany Council

    President and Vice President,

    I reduced spending, generat-

    ed millions of dollars in rev-

    Barbara Eames, of

    Whippany, is a candidate

    for Morris County

    Freeholder in the June 4

    Republican primary. Barbara con-siders herself a non-establishment

    conservative, bringing years of

    grassroots activism to her cam-


    Eames believes that county

    government needs to be down-

    sized. This means reducing the tax

    burden by looking for both effi-

    ciencies and a prioritization of nec-

    essary services and spending.

    The Freeholders participation

    in a large regional planning organ-ization threatens personal property

    rights, and grants too much deci-

    sion-making authority to non-

    elected bureaucrats, rather than

    local elected officials.

    With 25% of Morris Countys

    land area already protected from

    development, $95 million still sits

    in the County Preservation Trust

    Fund. It is time to re-examine the

    policy of continuing to tax citizens

    to acquire Open Space.

    Eames was a nine-year member

    of the Hanover Twp. Board of

    Education, serving as president of

    both her local and County school

    boards. She has been an electedmember of the Morris County

    Republican Committee since 1993.

    She has advised state legislators

    on policy issues, and worked

    closely with local grass roots

    organizations to train citizens to

    support local, state, and national

    candidates for public office.

    Eames is a music teacher in the

    South-Orange and Maplewood

    School District.

    My name is StephenDeHart and I amrunning for Morris

    County Freeholder. I havefinancial experience andresponsibility being a privatebusinesses owner , a realestate investor , and a gradu-ate with a degree inEconomics. My family haslived in Morris County sincebefore the Revolution. Theyfought in the RevolutionaryWar, served on the FirstContintental Congress, andhelped shape the NJConstitution. My runningmate Barbara Eames and I are

    contending as ConservativeRepublicans against theRegular RepublicanOrganization. We are non -establishment candidates.

    As a caring life long resi-dent of Morris County I haveunfortunately noticed a

    potentially unrestrictedincrease in government athigher levels due to ideas ofregionalization and landposession.

    In Morris County alone,25% of land has been boughtby government entities.Nearly $95 million rightfullybelonging to the tax payers ofMorris County sits in a slushfund used by the county todole out political favors whileinaccurate comparisons areirresponsibly used to spendbeyond their means.Programs such as Open Spacecreate no tax revenue, but

    plenty of spending proving tobe detrimental to our econo-my.

    There are very few peoplewilling to address our countydebt of over $250 million.This type of spending andborrowing is masked by rev-

    enue given to local govern-ment offices and agenciessuch as Homeland Security aswell as rises in costs to the

    public in Health Services,County Clerk Fees, andMotor Vehicle Fines.

    These are just a few exam-ples to why I am running forfreeholder. I hope to see youat the voting booths on June 4th.

    atriots Path Council, the regional head-

    quarters for Boy Scouts of America serv-

    ing scouting in northern New Jersey, will

    be sending five, 36-scout troops to the 2013

    National Scout Jamboree this summer. One of

    these troops is Jamboree Troop A319 with

    scouts and leaders from as far north as High

    Point and as far south as Chester, NJ. Jamboree,

    held once every four years, will be located in the

    newest Boy Scouts of America high adventure

    facility, the Summit Bechtel Reserve, in the

    mountains of West Virginia. With over 1,000

    acres, the facility will host more than 40,000

    scouts, leaders and staff from across the nation.

    Scouts attending Jamboree 2013 this summerwill be there for the grand opening of

    Jamborees new permanent home.

    Jamboree Troop A319 meets routinely to pre-

    pare for their trip to Jamboree. The scouts par-

    ticipate in ice breaker activities to get to know

    one another as they begin to work together as a

    team in their patrol. Each patrol has been tasked

    to choose a patrol name, design a patch and

    patrol flag, and come up with a skit and a cheer

    that they will present to the other A319 patrols

    during their practice shakedown campout

    weekend. A flag competition will take place

    amongst the troops patrols. The winning patrol

    will go on to compete at Jamboree with other

    patrol flag winners for a chance to display their

    flag at the Jamboree stadium. A special Class A

    uniform is required at Jamboree which will

    proudly display the Troops name A319, the

    official 2013 Jamboree patch, and the specially

    designed patrol patch.

    Attending Jamboree is a chance to experi-

    ence what Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder

    of the Boy Scouts, envisioned for scouting. He

    envisioned a large encampment of scouts to cel-

    ebrate scouting while enjoying the highest level

    of scouting experience. Scouts will spend 10

    days camping, meeting other scouts from acrossthe nation, and participate in high adventure

    activities such as whitewater rafting, archery,

    rock climbing, zip lines, mountain biking, boat-

    ing, and more. They will learn new skills that

    they may not otherwise have the chance to try.

    In addition, Jamboree will hold exhibits and sta-

    dium shows with entertainment, and will give

    opportunities for the scouts to visit nearby his-

    toric places and perform conservation projects

    in the local environment. A once in a lifetime

    experience awaits these scouts.

    Though not necessarily common,

    migraine headaches can affect chil-dren as well as adults. One study

    found that by age 15, 5 percent of all chil-

    dren and adolescents had suffered from

    migraine headaches, while 15 percent had

    experienced tension headaches. Children

    often suffer from headaches because of a

    cold, fever, illness or infection, including

    infections of the throat and ears. Sinusitis

    also may cause a child to suffer from

    headaches. Ideas as to what causes a

    migraine headache have changed over the

    years. Scientists long linked a migraine

    headache to the dilating and narrowing of

    blood vessels on the surface of the brain.But now scientists suspect a genetic link

    could be behind migraine headaches. An

    estimated 70 percent of children and adoles-

    cents who have migraines have an immedi-

    ate family member who also suffers from

    migraines or did as a child. Such youngsters

    also may be inheriting a tendency to be

    affected by migraine headache triggers like

    bright lights, changesin the weather and

    fatigue. Kids who spend too much time in

    the sun or are too physically active may also

    be susceptible to migraine headaches.

    Back in 1970, the Autosport Automotive Group was

    founded by Gerald A. Lustig. His first store was a

    Fiat dealership in Bound Brook, NJ. Over the years,

    the group famous for its no pressure approach to car sales,

    expanded to over 14 franchises, both domestic and import.

    President Gerald A. Lustig states "An opportunity camealong for us to get back in the Fiat business after all of these

    years. I have always thought their cars were pretty trick and

    definitely a lot of fun to drive. I actually raced a few Fiats

    in the SCCA over the years. We're excited to be the exclu-

    sive Fiat dealer in the Morris County Area. Fiat of Morris

    County, here on Route 53 in Denville is a new Fiat studio

    and offers a unique vehicle with some incredible attributes."

    Sales Manager Mike Olsen really appreciates the her-

    itage and future of this unique marque and knows why it

    should be a big success in this area. "I am so happy to be

    part of the Autosport Automotive Group. It's exciting to be

    part of a dealer group with owners that are as excited aboutthe brand as I am. This new studio location, right in the

    middle of Denville, NJ is going to offer the community a

    great car and incredible car buying experience."

    Autosport Automotive Group VP Steven Lustig has a

    great appreciation for the Fiat brand from both a marketing

    perspective and the driving experience. When I first started

    seeing the commercials and marketing materials for the Fiat

    brand I said to myself, "Now there's a brand with a clear

    vision and a brand that gets it. Mike asked me if I would

    drive the Fiat Abarth Cabrio around a bit so we could get a

    little exposure. What I didn't expect was the smile that car

    put on my face the first time I took it out. In fact, I can't help

    Fiat from Italy to Denville!

    but smile still every time I drive it. Now I just have to make

    sure my wife doesn't get to the garage before me in the

    morning. The very emotion I felt driving the car was the

    catalyst for our 'Rediscover' campaign."

    Fiat of Morris County offers some incredible amenities.

    Every new and pre-owned vehicle comes with an exclusive

    complimentary maintenance program and for a limited

    time, all new Fiats are being delivered with a free iPad,

    courtesy of Fiat of Morris County. Steven Lustig says "We

    have a great facility with an incredible team. These cars are

    so much fun to drive! We invite everyone to come down,

    have an espresso with us, and take one for a test drive and

    try not to smile".

    So many of my patients have come to Acupuncture as

    a last resort for their fibromyalgia pain, exhausting

    every other treatment for this menacing and painful

    disease. The most common symptoms associated with

    fibromyalgia are as follows: pain in the muscles and joints,

    brain fog, digestive problems, insomnia and fatigue. Each

    individual diagnosed with fibromyalgia exhibit varying

    symptoms based on the length of the disease. Fibromyalgia

    is tenacious in nature and expresses itself differently in each

    individual. It is this differentiation of symptoms in each

    individual that responds so well to Acupuncture and

    Chinese Medicine. Each individual is diagnosed based on

    their presenting symptoms according to Chinese medical

    diagnosis, not because a patient has been diagnosed with

    fibromyalgia. Each patient is evaluated and a treatment

    plan is designed for that patient only.

    I have found over the many years of treating fibromyal-

    gia that my patients look healthy, hence their pain and

    symptoms very often are not taken seriously and many have

    been put on anti-depressants by their doctors. As a result,

    fibro sufferers receive little empathy from family, friends,

    and health care practitioners. Western doctors often avoid

    billing using a fibromyalgia code fearing reprisals from

    insurance companies that are still debating the validity of

    the disease. Most fibromyalgia patients dont respond well

    to pain medication and have found little response to drug


    No one knows or understands how and why fibromyal-

    gia originated. Western medicine has yet to determine the

    cause, although some believe it may be an autoimmune dis-

    ease. However, according to the ancient theories of

    Chinese medical differential diagnosis, fibromyalgia fol-

    lows patterns of imbalances associated with Qi (energy),

    organs and energetic qualities of the body leading to pain

    syndromes, some of the following pattern are most oftenseen in patients suffering with fibromyalgia:

    1. External Pathogens- According to Chinese medicine,

    a cold or flu is treated by releasing the pathogen to the exte-

    rior. Part of this process includes opening the pours by

    causing a sweat. If an exterior pathogen is not treated prop-

    erly, it can become latent and lodged in the interior of the

    body. This unresolved virus can lodge itself in the muscle

    tissue, or more seriously, n the organs of the body.

    Interestingly, antibiotics are often used when a person

    comes down with a cold or flu, but Chinese medicine

    knows that antibiotics are very cold in nature and cold caus-

    es contraction. When antibiotics are used in the presence of

    an exterior pathogen, the pathogen cannot move to the exte-

    rior thus getting trapped in the muscle tissue.

    2. Liver Qi Constraints - The Livers main job is its abil-

    ity to move Qi throughout the entire body. When the Liver

    function becomes obstructed or constrained there is a ten-

    dency for the Liver to become heated. Not only does the

    Liver function become impaired, but the Liver overacts on

    other systems. It can affect the Heart function causing

    insomnia and the Spleen and Large Intestine functions caus-

    ing digestive difficulties. With Liver Qi obstructions there

    is typically an emotional component or imbalance causing

    frustration, easy to anger and even depression.

    3. Dampness Phlegm is produced in the body when

    there is too much dampness, this Phlegm is a sticky sub-

    stance which can adhere to every cell in your body.

    According to Chinese medicine, Phlegm is not just restrict-ed to your respiratory system. People suffering from

    fibromyalgia often have Phlegm lodged in the muscle tissue

    causing stagnation and pain. This is one of the factors that

    make fibromyalgia patients difficult to treat with western

    medicine. Western medicine has no way of recognizing or

    clearing dampness from the tissues, but Chinese medicine

    and Acupuncture have been doing this for thousands of


    4. Qi Deficiency Many patients with fibromyalgia suf-

    fer from severe fatigue. Their energy is often so depleted

    that they cant hold down a job or even care for their fami-

    lies. Chinese medicine knows how to build your Qi or ener-gy without further strengthening the pathogen. This is why

    fibromyalgia patients cannot use typical supplements that

    build energy and vitality in the body.

    The patterns listed above are the main underlying pat-

    terns seen in fibromyalgia patients. The only way for a

    Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Provides Relief

    for Those Who Suffer From Fibromyalgiapatient to regain their health in this situation is to release the

    pathogen and resolve the dampness. Both Chinese herbal

    formulas and Acupuncture can get you back on the road to

    wellness. For a more detailed explanation, please see my

    website, and click on pain

    management, under the section for articles, and also read

    the testimonials from my fibromyalgia patients.

    degree from the Eastern School of Acupuncture in Mont-

    clair, NJ. She received her Acupuncture Certification

    from the New Jersey Board of of Medical Examiners

    (C.A.) and from the National Commission for the

    Sugar: Not So SweetFor Your Health

    Men and women often joke about needing their

    daily "sugar fix." But the American Heart

    Association notes that the average American is

    consuming nearly twice the amount of sugar he or she

    should be, a mistake that could be jeopardizing sugar con-

    sumers' long-term health.

    If sugar is a staple of your diet, then the following are a

    handful of factors that might make you reconsider your

    relationship with the sweet stuff.

    * Sugar may increase risk of diabetes. Studies have

    shown a link between sugar consumption and diabetes. A

    study published in the journal Diabetes Care revealed thatsubjects who drank one to two servings of sugar per day

    were 26 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than

    those who drank one serving of sugar per month or none at

    all. Sugar-sweetened beverages contribute to weight gain,

    and overweight and obesity are risk factors for diabetes.

    And the quick delivery of sugar to your body from sweet-

    ened beverages can lead to insulin resistance and inflamma-

    tion over time.

    * Excessive amounts of sugar can negatively affect your

    heart. A study in the Journal of the American Medical

    Association found that people who got 25 percent or more

    of their calories from added sugars were far more likely tohave low levels of HDL, also known as "good cholesterol,"

    than those whose diets included less than 5 percent sugar.

    Low HDLlevels increase your risk of stroke, heart disease

    and heart attack.

    * Sugar may negatively impact mood. A sugar high may

    temporarily boost your mood, but researchers from Baylor

    College of Medicine discovered a correlation between

    sugar consumption and depression. The exact link is

    unknown, but some researchers feel insulin resistance

    resulting from heavy sugar consumption forces the release

    of stress hormones, negatively affecting mood.

    Each year the National Park Service provides a special

    day of activities at the Thomas Edison Factory and

    Laboratories in West Orange, New Jersey. It iscalled Edison Day. Admission is free on this day. The tra-

    ditional programs for this event have been an organized

    family day of activities that includes: ranger talks on a vari-

    ety of topics, tour of Edisons Glenmont house and grounds,

    Edison innovative cement garage with the family cars, and

    film appreciation of Black Maria films (The West Orange

    Black Maria was the first movie studio in the United

    States). This years Edison Day will be held on Saturday,

    June 1st.

    Thomas Edisons West Orange location is a national

    treasure of the original factory and lab buildings that hous-

    es the tools, inventions, equipment, records, films and doc-uments of Thomas Edison. These building structures alone

    are museum artifacts of an industrial era in American histo-

    ry. This makes the Edison factory and lab location a unique

    place of being a museum inside of a museum.

    The West Orange location was Thomas Edisons vision.

    Edisons innovations outgrew his Menlo Park location. In

    1887 he employed Henry Hudson Holly an architect to

    design the largest laboratory ever built. The result was a six

    building lab complex that took a construction crew of 200

    men to build. Many historians believe that this New Jersey

    laboratory was the largest in the world when it was erected.

    It is estimated that half of Edisons 1,093 patents were con-

    ceived at the West Orange location such as: his work with

    motion pictures, patented improvements to the phonograph,

    and experiments with cement, alkaline batteries and rubber

    substitutes. It is the West Orange location that expandedEdisons horizons from inventor to successful manufactur-

    er, businessman, and marketer of his inventions to the pub-

    lic. In West Orange, New Jersey Edison created new inven-

    tions, manufactured them and then sold them to the world.

    The other half of this NPS national treasure in West

    Orange is Edisons home - the Glenmont Estate. It is a 29-

    room Queen Anne-style home resting on 15 acres of land

    and is only one mile away from Edisons labs and factories.

    In 1886 the Glenmont Estate became Edisons wedding gift

    to his second wife Mina Miller. Mina would open up the 30

    seat dining room to invite dinner guests that ranged from
