Page 4 The Forked River GAZETTE Are You Financially Prepared to Raise an Athlete? There’s no denying that the cost of childhood athletics is expensive. And while you may not be raising an Olympic-caliber athlete, if your child is one of the 35 million kids between ages 5 and 18 who play an organized sport in the U.S.1, you know about the financial commitment all too well. Expenses add up quickly, and it can be easy to lose track of the cost for your child to be on the team. What can you do to feel in control of athletic costs? First and foremost, create a budget for each sport and season your child plays with these five expenses in mind: 1. Athletic training. Typically the largest sports-related expense is skills training and team building activities. You can anticipate these costs by adding up the price of each sport camp, specialty class and clinic your rising star may attend next season. If your child has an opportunity for private coaching or to attend a workshop with friends, consider whether or not it makes sense financially for him or her to participate. 2. Equipment. Trends in the sporting goods industry are constantly changing. In fact, the sports equipment and apparel industry continues to grow, bringing in more than $47 billion in revenue in 2015 2. So how often do you need to replace your child’s equipment, practice clothes and warm-ups? While you don’t have to follow every trend, keep in mind that the right equipment – meaning it fits properly and meets safety standards – can prevent injury. If you’re unsure about whether you should replace the softball bat or football pads, get a recommendation from your child’s coach or an expert at your local sporting goods store. 3. Travel. Whether it’s a weekend game in a nearby town or an out-of-state tournament, travel is becoming more frequent in youth sports. Make sure to find out what travel is expected so you can plan transportation, hotel rooms, meals and time-off work into your budget. 4. Participation fees. In addition to team or school fees, there’s often pressure to purchase items commemorating the season. Custom t-shirts, embroidered equipment bags, team pictures and post-game celebrations can add up. Keep an open dialogue with your child so they know what items you’re comfortable purchasing. 5. Health care. While you never want your son or daughter to come home injured, it can happen at any time. And it becomes more common as athletes move into more competitive levels. Prepare for these events by making sure you understand how your health care coverage applies to walk-in treatment, emergency care and preventive costs. Broken bones, sprained ankles and repetitive stress injuries happen, and you’ll want to be ready for any out-of-pocket expenses. It’s challenging to put a price on supporting your child’s athletic talent, but it’s important to put the cost of OCTOBER 2016 athletics into perspective. If you know the true financial commitment of your child’s athletic season, you can feel confident that your level of investment makes sense for your child’s interest and talent, as well as your budget. 1 "Spending big on kids' sports?

Page 6 The Forked River GAZETTE DOWN TO EARTH Some thoughts on technology …... When I was around twelve, I built my first radio receiver. It was from a kit, there were only a handful of parts, as far as I can remember, there was a coil wound around an oatmeal box, a carbon headset, a diode, a piece of galena (lead ore), a stiff wire and some wire and a couple of clips to connect it all. There was no battery, you probed the piece of galena with the stiff wire until you heard an AM radio station --- it was great, and I built it myself! It wasn't long after that when I built my first one tube radio transmitter from another kit, for a short while this was also great, from my bedroom, I could broadcast to a radio down in the kitchen. This was short lived though, because little did I know, I was also transmitting to any radio within a three or four block radius that was tuned in close to the frequency that the kit was set up for, it tended to drift a bit, so it blocked out several radio stations. I think it was my uncle Henry that told my father there was a truck riding around on the other side of the tracks at the bottom of our hill, and they were looking for a pirate radio station, Oops! That ended my radio transmitting days. It seems at that time there were quite a few Pirate radio stations in the New York City area and New Jersey, and our government was actively attempting to shut them down. As fast as they shut one down, two more would pop up, it wasn't very hard The Optical Shop of Lacey The Optical Shop (Roger W. Naylor, Optician) is pleased to welcome Kirk Optometry, LLC (Tara Kirk, OD-Optometrist) inside his practice.

OCTOBER 2016 to set a station up as the technology was fairly easy to understand “Radio Row” (an area where the World Trade Center now stands) had plenty of WWII surplus radio equipment, and it was fairly cheap for anyone who wanted to tinker with it. I went through several shortwave radio receivers during the time before I entered the Navy, almost every good AM radio had the short wave bands, and while I was in the Navy I was introduced to several powerful short wave radio receivers, along with fax machines and teletypes and map plotters, all of which I used as an Aerographer's mate (commonly known as an AG or weather guesser). When I was transferred to the Fleet Numerical Weather Facility out in Monterey, California, I was introduced to main frame computers, some were older, but some were state of the art and connected worldwide via watts phone lines. I remember there was a seven second delay, when I was communicating with Hawaii, Japan, or Germany, and our most powerful computer had five hundred kilobytes of core memory (memory made up of very small donuts of ferrous iron, which were read as a zero or one depending on the charge). After I left the Navy, I went to work for the US Postal service, as the years went by, I worked with everything from tube equipment to sophisticated networks and computers, everything always being updated to the latest technology. Now when I look around, everything is “tech”, from phones with powers and apps far beyond Dick Tracy's wrist phone of my childhood, workplace robots that follow wifi signals around the warehouse while doing the work of two dozen workers, cars that drive themselves, and groups of kids walking down the street, heads down, thumbs busy, and text messages flying – to whom, you ask, why the person walking next to them. Sometimes I think some of today's “tech” has gone too far, we are becoming addicted and we are losing out on life around us. For several people that I know, that smart phone has taken over their life, Me, I have managed to dumb down, I have a cell phone, it is the flip variety, and yes it can connect to the internet, but only if I hit the wrong button, most of the time it is off, I do turn it on occasionally to call someone, and it is nice because I can call long distance without being charged more. But I do have to remember to charge it every couple of weeks. Also I do use my computer to send and receive email, but it is nice to send and receive a letter from a from a friend even though my handwriting or theirs gets kind of shaky sometimes and we misspell some words. You know, now that I think of it, I have never gotten a virus reading a handwritten letter, no matter how many times I fold or unfold it. Every once in a while, when I am working in the garage, I turn on my short wave radio and listen to the BBC or Radio Netherlands, it's nice getting someone's viewpoint or news from the other side of the world --- without two dozen commercials every five minutes and occasionally they play some nice music, again without commercials. One final thought, typing this on the computer with spell check and auto save does sure beat the heck out of the old typewriter, so maybe some “tech” is OK.

OCTOBER 2016 The Forked River GAZETTE Page 17 Rotary Minute ~~ from the Public Relations desk It’s been a busy summer for the Rotary Club of Forked River. Lacey Day saw temps soaring above 100! But that did little to wilt the grillers and other Rotary volunteers who spent the day serving burgers and hot dogs to the families and exhibitors who participated in this yearly event. Of special interest this year was the Rotary exhibit of a Shelter Box. This project partnership between Rotary and ShelterBox offers opportunities to collaborate in providing emergency shelter and vital supplies to stabilize, protect, and support communities affected by disasters and humanitarian crises. And while our enthusiasm never wavered this year we are all hoping for a cool breeze and moderate temps for Lacey Day ’17! Being part of Rotary means being part of a worldwide organization. Whether it’s hosting visiting Rotarians from around the world or just down the road, fellowship plays a very important part in Rotary. Just recently members of the Forked River Rotary, members of the Barnegat Rotary and members of the LBI Rotary came together in a Nine & Dine Fellowship Day at the Atlantis Country Club! After a day of nine holes and good natured camaraderie, golfers and non-golfers enjoyed a delicious 5 course dinner at the famed Cuisine on the Green, a pub and Continued on Page 18

OCTOBER 2016 Must Read Books for Marketing Mavens (or Mavens in Training) You have likely heard the saying “knowledge is power.” I am a firm believer in it! There is a sense of power and confidence I get when I read a good business or marketing book that I just never seem to get from reading an article online or watching a webinar. While articles and webinars can be great resources for learning, there’s nothing like getting an education the “old fashioned way” – from a book. The following books have helped me become the marketer I am today and highly recommend adding them to your reading list. Inbound Marketing: Attract, Engage, and Delight Customers Online by Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah The original version of this was quite possibly the first marketing book I read after college. It’s a good book for beginners as it breaks down how to create content and get it found online. In addition, it covers some social media techniques from how to get followers on Facebook to how to track your social media marketing efforts. New Rules of Marketing and PR by David Meerman Scott Even if you are a seasoned PR and marketing professional, you are bound to learn something new from this book. It offers insight on what used to work and what’s working now in the industries. My favorite chapter of the book is chapter four. Many people think they can just dive into social media, write some posts, upload a few photos and just like that, get sales from social. This book gives those believers a reality check helping them to understand that social media is about building relationships. Everybody Writes: Your Go-ToGuide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content by Ann Handley If you’ve been in the marketing industry for a bit, the name Ann Handley might (and should) sound familiar to you. Handley is one of the top influencers in the marketing world famously known for her work with MarketingProfs. This book guided me toward taking my content to the next The Forked River GAZETTE Page 25 level. It’s a good read for marketers at all levels. Even if your marketing job does not specifically require you to create blog posts or social media content, you still need to be a good writer and Handley helps teach you how. Likeable Social Media by Dave Kerpen This book is for anyone who manages social media accounts for a living. Kerpen advises what social media can and cannot do, how to really listen to your followers, how to reach the right people, and more. My biggest takeaways from this book came when Kerpen spoke to creating useful content urging marketers to ask themselves:  Will the recipients of this message truly find it of value, or will they find it annoying?

Set The Tone For Your Haunt With Fright Night At The Phil Continued from Page 25 ~ MUST READ BOOKS...  Would I want to receive this message as a consumer? For even more insight on how to get your brand to be ‘likable’ on social media, add Likeable Social Media to your reading list. Decoding the New Consumer Mind: How and Why We Shop and Buy with Kit Yarrow This is not a marketing book per say, but every good marketer knows that understanding the target audience of the brand they’re selling is key to success. The book outlines what motivates consumers to pay attention to brands and move from prospect status to customer status, outlining three cultural shifts and four marketing strategies to meet them. The strategies are more advanced but not impossible to put in place. If you are a seasoned marketer who has been doing things the same way for a long time, this book will give you some insight into why those strategies are no longer ideal for optimal performance. If you do decide to pick up any of these books, be sure to let me know what you think of them. I can be reached at marisasanfilippo@gmail.com or on Twitter at @MarisaASan. Marisa Sanfilippo is a journalist turned award-winning marketing professional who has more than six years experience developing and executing marketing campaigns for small and medium sized What would Halloween be without the music and sounds that set the stage. In fact, whether it be a great classic horror or popular movie about magic, the music is usually the invisible character that makes us fly or keeps us on the edge of our seat. The Garden State Philharmonic invites audiences to celebrate the holiday of haunts with the professional orchestra and Fright Night at the Phil, the second Series concert of its 61st season on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College in Toms River. Get ready for the season of witches, ghouls and goblins with the music that has set the stage for all things that go bump in the night. Music selections will draw from the contemporary works of Williams (Harry Potter), as well as the legendary classics of Chadwick, Grieg and Berlioz, among others. Full -price tickets range from $12 to $48, with reduced fixed rates for senior citizens, students, and groups of 10 or more. For those who appreciate locking in additional savings, pre-season subscription packages continue to be available rewarding buyers with a 10% discount off standard ticket rates. For senior citizens living in adult communities throughout Ocean County ask about the GSP’s ConcertRide Transportation program when calling. The Professional Orchestra Series is sponsored, in part, by Investors Bank and the Investors Foundation. ConcertRide for the 61st season is made possible, in part, by a grant from OceanFirst Foundation. Call (732) 255-0460 or visit GardenStatePhilharmonic.org for tickets. People in general and creative artists in particular have always had a fascination with magic and the macabre. For generations, composers have capitalized on that fascination in crafting music that inspires human imagination, often featuring individual instruments to serve as characters – flying witches and wizards for example. In compiling this pre-Halloween concert, Maestro Anthony LaGruth of the Garden State Philharmonic explored the expanse of orchestral music to select material that would speak to audiences of many ages. Fright Night at the Phil will draw from the repertoire of composers, past and present, who could easily be considered the Maestros of Halloween. Consider, Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in d, Chadwick’s Hobgoblin, Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, Williams’ Harry Potter, Grieg’s Hall of the Mountain King, Humperdinck’s Witch’s Ride, Mussorgski’s Night on Bald Mountain, and, of course, Berlioz’s Symphony Fantastique iv, v. As a special reward to audience members who attend the October 29th concert in costume, three lucky audience members will be chosen to receive free tickets to future concerts. Call (732) 255-0460 or GardenStatePhilharmonic.org.

OCTOBER 2016 The Forked River GAZETTE Page 27 Take a Tip from a Certified Matrimonial Attorney In my many years of helping people through a divorce, I’ve learned that the hardest part for most people is getting started. Making the phone call to a divorce lawyer is difficult; That first appointment with a lawyer is difficult; When they walk out my door after a consultation they feel … relief. Even when people who haven’t yet made the decision to pursue a divorce feel more grounded and calm after talking to a lawyer. That’s because taking action to address a deep-seated problem feels empowering. You are making a visible step forward instead of remaining stuck in negative thinking. When you have that first meeting with me, don’t worry if you don’t know what you want to do. You are not making the decision to get divorced right now. You are simply obtaining information — learning about how New Jersey divorce laws may apply to your case, learning about resources that you may need later on in the process. Some people fear that if they talk about divorce, they are going to have to do something about it. If you were talking to your family and friends about the problems in your marriage, they are deeply concerned about you and they may push you to take action. That is not the case when talking with a lawyer. You are under no obligation to do anything more, unless you choose to do so. Your consultation with a divorce lawyer is absolutely confidential. You can talk about any concern you may be having. You can ask any question. Lawyers may not tell anyone what you’ve discussed. In addition to receiving legal information, your initial consultation is also a time get a feel for the attorney. (If you choose to move forward, you will be working together for months to come, so these factors are important.) Do you feel he/she understands you? Do you feel you can be open and honest with him/her? Do you have confidence that he/she can get the job done? Don’t worry. Take that first step. Call today to schedule an initial consultation with William J. Rempel, learn your rights, feel empowered to make a decision and get some … relief. For more information call 609 971-1884 William J.

SPECIAL PLANETARY ASPECTS FOR OCTOBER 2016: Happy Birthday, Libra! Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac with Venus as its ruler. Cream is the color associated with the sign of Libra. Libras are thoughtful, cooperative, friendly people who value friendship. Partnership is essential to a Libra. They are peace-loving people and appreciate the arts. Their major downfall is indecisiveness. Libra’s gems are watermelon tourmaline and hematite. On October 16, the Aries Full Moon will be shining in its powerful glory. This is a SuperMoon and with Uranus, Ceres, Eris in Aries and Jupiter and Mercury in Libra, plus the Mars and Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn this will bring our attention to issues of freedom and fairness, communication and cooperation, passion and power. The call is for change in a fair and balanced way honoring all life forms while remaining fair to ourselves. We have no choice but to think out of the box to find a way to turn conflict into collaboration. Watch for important insights on October 20 and revelations as Mercury opposes Uranus. At the time of the Scorpio New Moon, October 30, we can expect to feel a transformation in our thoughts and feelings, especially regarding fear of the unknown. This is also a time of heightened intuition, making this the perfect time to mediate. To exam what we have feared to see if it is just simply a fear of the unknown. To quote Edward Teller: “When you get to the end of the light, you know it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown. Faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.” Continued on Page 31

Page 32 The Forked River GAZETTE OCTOBER 2016 HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Spooky Truths Regarding Halloween Safety On and Off the Road For some, the magic of Halloween is veiled in the mystery of faces covered by frightening masks or the glee of toddlers dressed in cute costumes. For others, it's the trick -or-treating, classroom dress-up parties or family trips to a neighborhood haunted house. For moms and dads, often there is a fine line between Halloween fun and safety concerns, especially when it comes to road and pedestrian safety. In 2013, an estimated 6,100 pedestrian deaths and 160,000 medically consulted nonfatal injuries occurred among pedestrians in motor vehicle incidents, according to Injury Facts 2015, the statistical report on unintentional injuries created by the National Safety Council. NSC research revealed the reasons for pedestrian deaths and injuries varied by age. Darting or running into the road accounted for about 70 percent of pedestrian deaths or injuries for those age 5 to 9 and about 47 percent of incidents for those 10 to 14. In the U.S., October ranked No. 2 in motor vehicle deaths by month. The NSC list put August first, with 3,370 deaths, followed by October, 3,200, and September, 3,170. Follow These Ghoulishly Good Best Practices To help ensure adults and children have a safe holiday, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has compiled a list of Halloween Safety Tips, including do's and don'ts on the trick-or-treat trail:  A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds  If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you  Agree on a specific time when children should return home  Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don't run, across the street. NSC offers the following safety tips for parents – and anyone who plans to be on the road during trick-or-treat hours: Safety Tips for Motorists  Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs  Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully  At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing Trick-or-Treating  Instruct your children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and avoid trick-or-treating alone  Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home  Teach your children to never enter a stranger's home Costumes  All costumes, wigs and accessories should be fireresistant  If children are allowed out after dark, fasten reflective tape to their costumes and bags to make sure they are visible  When buying Halloween makeup, make sure it is nontoxic and always test it in a small area first Remove all makeup before children go to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation Article courtesy of National Safety Council. http://ow.ly/ Q1QA304L7kr Pinkalicious, The Musical Pinkalicious, The Musical, Saturday, October 29 at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Main Stage.

Under the direction of Music Director Jed Gaylin, the concert will be one of contrasts. Tchaikovsky's suave, charming, spirited Serenade for Strings comes from a composer known for works full of passion and brooding. Mozart's Requiem, his last work, is fierce and intense in OCTOBER 2016 contrast to the transparency and verve of many of his works. The Requiem will feature soprano Natalie Conte, mezzo-soprano Jessica Renfro, tenor Gran Wilson, and bass-baritone Robert Cantrell, with Choral Arts of South Jersey and Stockton Chorale. The concert will also be presented in a Red Carpet Evening at the Landis Theater, 830 E. Landis Ave., Vineland, on Saturday, October 29, at 8 p.m. That concert will inaugurate the historic 1937-vintage Art Deco theater as the Bay Atlantic Symphony's new Cumberland County performance home. For this season's subscription concert series, reduced ticket prices—$30 per concert plus service charges —will be for all seats in both venues, subsidized by the generosity of sponsorship by Woodruff Energy. Group and student rates are also available. Tickets for the Stockton performance may be ordered by calling the Stockton University Performing Arts Center box office at (609) 652-9000. For the Landis Theater performance, call (866) 811-4111, or visit THE SPOTmarketplace located at 618 E. Landis Avenue in Vineland, N.J.,(856) 839-2825. All Bay Atlantic Symphony performances will be preceded one hour prior to starting time with a "Pre-Concert Conversation with the Maestro." The Symphony's lectures are free and open to the public. These concerts are also made possible through funding from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation. The Symphony's value to the community goes far beyond performing great music. As a cultural centerpiece, the BAS is a treasured music education resource. By creating meaningful, interactive music experiences for children, adults, the visually-impaired, veterans, and seniors with limited mobility, the BAS strives to create vibrant communities rooted in the love of music. The New Jersey State Council on the Arts has honored Bay Atlantic Symphony with a 2017 Citation of Excellence, which denotes arts programs and projects that receive the Council's highest possible assessment.

OCTOBER 2016 FOOD FOR THOUGHT Mark R. Vogel foodforthoughtonline.net Get a Leg Up The leg meat of the animals we customarily utilize as food is often under-appreciated, misunderstood, and erroneously maligned. Targeted by American food neurotics, aided and abetted by culinary ignorance and arcane nomenclature, the leg has remained shrouded in fat-phobia and mystery. Let’s jettison the irrationalities and clarify what’s left. Maybe you’ll become a leg-man too. The first issue we must untangle is the language. Many times the leg is not referred to as the “leg.” If you’ve ever had roast beef, most London broils, round steak; top, bottom, or eye-round roast, veal scaloppini, or ham, you’ve consumed the upper hind leg of the animal. The shank is the lower part of the leg, and the source for ham hocks, lamb shank, and osso buco (made from veal shank). Next is the baseless paranoia running rampant (no pun intended), in our society about leg meat and fat. Beef round is one of the leaner cuts on the steer. Each ounce of round steak has only one gram of saturated fat. One ounce of veal round has only a third of a gram of saturated fat. But it’s chicken legs that fat-phobes usually have a knee-jerk reaction to. Chicken legs are particularly feared because of additional irrational anxieties associated with “dark” or “red” meat. There is nothing inherently unhealthy in the biochemistry that causes some meat to be darker. Red meat is red because of myoglobin, an iron containing protein that transfers oxygen from the blood to the muscles. Muscles which are used more will contain more myoglobin (since they require more oxygen), and will be redder or darker in color. A chicken uses its legs far more than its breast muscles and hence, they are darker. As for the fat, according to Perdue’s website, four ounces of cooked, skinless chicken thighs have only three grams of saturated fat and a roasted chicken leg only 1.5 grams, so if you ask me, the anti-dark-meat camp doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The last leg of our discussion is deciphering whether a particular meat is tough or tender since this will influence the cooking method employed. Tender cuts of meat, i.e., less exercised muscles, such as the rib, loin, or tenderloin, require dry heat cooking methods such as grilling, broiling, roasting, and sautéing. Tougher cuts of meat are muscles that receive more exercise such as the legs. They require moist heat methods such as braising and stewing, which facilitate the tenderization of the meat. There are exceptions however, the ideal example being leg of lamb. Because a lamb is an immature sheep, its leg is tenderer than the leg of a cow or pig. Thus you can apply dry heat methods to a leg of lamb as in the below recipe. Chicken legs are also not nearly as tough as their four-legged counterparts and can be cooked by either dry or wet heat methods. Roast beef, from the round, is roasted, but because it is sliced thin, the texture is less of an issue. Cubed meat from the round however, is best stewed. Veal scaloppini, again from the round, is tender due to the The Forked River GAZETTE Page 37 DENTAL IMPLANTS & GRAFTING PROCEDURES Call now to schedule your appointment (609) 488-2325 “Wisdom” Teeth Extraction • Laser Soft Tissue Procedures Biopsy & Pathology • Digital X-Rays & 3-D Scans General Anesthesia • Conscious Sedation • Nitrous Oxide Botox & Juvederm EMERGENCIES WELCOME We treat patients of all ages.

It is best sautéed. The shanks of all the four-legged critters however are always tough and must rely on braising for their succulence. The benefit of leg meat is it tastes great. If cooked right it can be juicy and unctuous. It is also less expensive than many other cuts. Finally, depending on the animal it comes from, its age, and how it is fabricated, it is amenable to a wide variety of cooking techniques and preparations.

OCTOBER 2016 Girl Scout Fall Product Sale Program Begins October 1 With Fabulous New Offerings Fall is upon us and that means it’s time for the Girl Scout Fall Product Sale Program! From October 1 through November 27, 2016, Girl Scouts in Monmouth and Ocean counties will sell a variety of nuts, candy, magazines and photo keepsake books. While the girls delight in selling and we indulge in these delicious treats, the benefits of the fall product sale program extend far beyond the autumn season. Also, this year for the first time, customers can go online to buy any product sold nationwide during the Fall Product Sale, even if it’s not available on the local order sheet. They just need to ask a Girl Scout for a link to the girl’s personal online store. Girl Scout product sale activities feature age-appropriate lessons that combine business basics with the fun commonly associated with Girl Scouts. The program builds financial literacy and leadership skills as girls actively make discoveries and decisions about marketing, budgeting, customer service and goal setting. When you purchase a can of pistachios from a Girl Scout, you’re helping her learn the skills she needs to grow into the strong, independent woman she was born to be. Additionally, the fall product sale program provides a jump start at the beginning of the Girl Scout year for girls to work towards reaching the goals that they have The Forked River GAZETTE Page 39 Homewatch Pet Sitting QUALITY IN-HOME VISITS 7 DAYS A WEEK WHILE YOUR HOME OR ON VACATION Fresh Food & Water ~ Daily Exercise ~ Routine Medications Transportation to Groomer or Veterinarian www.homewatchpetsitting.com 609-290-3534 set for themselves. When our girls dream, they dream big. Whether it’s a trip overseas, an environmental awareness program or a week at summer day camp, girls decide on a goal, assess the funds necessary to achieve that goal and work together to make it happen. Parents appreciate the program for both the life lessons taught to their daughters, as well as the goals and dreams the girls are able to achieve that might otherwise be out of reach financially. Girl Scout product sales also support other community organizations and our military. The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore will continue its “Jersey Shore Cares” program in partnership with the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties developed as a service project where each troop/group can donate product sale items to worthwhile causes. Girl Scouts in our community will also send nuts, candy and cookies to soldiers overseas. For a full list of products and other fall product sale program information www.jerseyshoregirlscoutnuts.com.

Page 40 The Forked River GAZETTE Turn Yard Waste into Gardener's Gold - Compost By Melinda Myers Save time and money by turning landscape trimmings into a valuable soil amendment. The idea is simple, just collect disease- and insect-free plant debris into a heap and let it decompose into a fine, nutrient rich material that helps improve the soil. Don't add meat, dairy, invasive plants, weeds that have gone to seed or perennial weeds that can take root and grow in your compost pile. Speed things up by layering yard waste with soil or compost, adding a bit of fertilizer to each layer and moistening to a consistency of a damp sponge. Further speed up the process by making the pile at least three-feet tall and wide. Turn the pile as time allows, moving the more decomposed materials from the center to the outside of the pile. It's a great work out and speeds up the decomposition. The more effort you put into composting the sooner you have rich organic matter for your garden. Build the pile in a location that is convenient for adding raw materials and harvesting the finished compost. Consider placing the pile near a water source to make moistening the pile easier. Avoid poorly drained locations that may lead to the pile of compost becoming waterlogged. Soggy materials break down more slowly and may smell. Enclose the pile in a bin to keep the process neat and tidy. Purchase a compost bin or make your own from fencing, concrete reinforcement wire or old heat-treated pallets. Single bin wire composters are easy to assemble and move. Enclosed bins keep materials out of sight and neighbors or less enthusiastic family members happy. Look for bins of sturdy UV resistant materials, ventilation for efficient composting and designed for easy loading and unloading. Tumbler composters are great for small spaces and make loading, unloading and turning much easier. The closed system also keeps out rodents, wildlife and pets. Add garden waste, keep it consistently moist and give it a turn. Continually adding fresh material slows the process, but you will still end up with good compost. Speed up decomposition with two tumblers. Fill one tumbler with plant waste and let it cook, while collecting fresh materials in the second. Not enough room for two? Try the Dual-Batch Compost Tumbler (gardeners.com), Compost Twin or other tumbler system with two individual bins mounted on one support. Further speed up results with an insulated unit like the Jorafoam Composter 125. The insulation ensures compost reaches higher temperatures for more efficient composting. And don't let cold temperatures or a lack of space stop you. Everyone can convert kitchen scraps into nutrient-rich compost with the help of red worms. Convert OCTOBER 2016 a plastic container filled with shredded paper into a home for the worms and place to recycle plant based food scraps. Or dress things up with a stylish bin like the green Worm Farm Composter and move the worms indoors for convenient recycling. Photo credit: Gardener's Supply Company Photo Caption: Tumbler composters are great for small spaces and make loading, unloading and turning much easier. Add finished compost to your vegetable and annual gardens every spring to help build healthy soil and a productive and beautiful garden. Or spread a one-inch layer over the soil surface of perennials gardens every year or two to keep your flowers looking their best. As you clear out the summer garden, put all that green debris to work. Convert it to rich compost for next year's garden. Then enjoy the many benefits it will have on your landscape.

OCTOBER 2016 Dental Phobia Today, dental procedures are truly pain free; however, just the thought of being examined can make some people feel extremely stressed. This is termed “dental phobia”. A phobia is an intense, unreasonable fear. People with dental phobia often put off routine care for years or even decades. They will put up with gum infections (periodontal disease), pain, or even broken and unsightly teeth. It has been estimated that about 30 million to 40 million people delay dental treatment. People often use the words "anxiety" and "phobia" to mean the same thing, but they are different. Those with dental anxiety will have a sense of uneasiness; dental phobia is a more serious condition. It's an intense fear or dread. People with dental phobia aren't merely anxious. They are terrified or panic stricken. Avoiding the dentist may have emotional costs as well. Discolored or damaged teeth can make people self-conscious and insecure. They smile less or keep their mouths partly closed when they speak. Some people can become so embarrassed about how their teeth look that their personal and professional lives begin to suffer. There is often a serious loss of self-esteem. Dental phobia, like other disorders, can be treated. Without treatment, dental phobia is likely to get worse over time. That's partly because emotional stress can make dental visits more uncomfortable than they need to be. This means they may feel pain at lower levels than other people. They may need extra anesthetic, pre-medication, or other comforting treatments. Causes of Dental Anxiety and Phobia People develop dental anxieties and phobias for many different reasons. Pain — Negative past experiences — In a survey of people who had not seen a dentist for 12 months, 6% reported fear of pain as the main reason. The fear of pain is most common in adults 24 years and older. This may be because their early dental visits happened before many of the advances in "pain-free" dentistry. Feelings of helplessness and loss of control — Many people develop phobias about situations such as flying in an airplane in which they feel they have no control. It's common for people to feel helpless and out of control, which may trigger anxiety. Embarrassment — People may feel ashamed or embarrassed to have a stranger looking inside the mouth. This may be a particular problem if they're self-conscious about how their teeth look. Anyone who has had pain or discomfort during previous dental procedures is likely to be more anxious the next time around. There isn't a clear boundary that separates "normal" anxiety from phobia. Everyone has fears and concerns and copes with them in different ways. However, the prospect of dental work does not need to fill you with terror. If it does, then you may need some help overcoming the fears. If this describes you, you need to tell your dentist The Forked River GAZETTE Page 43 about your feelings, concerns and fears. I assure you, he or she will absolutely help you overcome these feelings.
