Misguided miracles

first_imgFrom diet pills to wrinkle cream, if a product sounds too good to be true, chances are it is. Cable television and the Internet are filled with advertisements for wonder products. With gardening being a favorite outdoor activity, many of these so-called miracle products are designed with gardeners in mind. One example is foolproof pesticides that are supposed to eradicate everything from Japanese beetles to millipedes. And herbicides that will supposedly last for months and eradicate almost any weed. I recently heard a radio advertisement for a product that claims to kill Japanese beetles ‘year-round. Being a Master Gardener, trained by the University of Georgia, I didn’t believe this claim for a minute. Unfortunately, the average homeowner or novice gardener may. To avoid being burned by the latest revolutionary product, gardeners should read product labels thoroughly. And it doesn’t hurt to know a little chemistry. Become familiar with potential active ingredients such as glyphosate, bifenthrin, triclopyr, cyfluthrin, imidacloprid, trifluralin and spinosad.When using a new gardening product, ask yourself a few questions: Are there any potential hazards? Will the product harm pets, wildlife or bees? Can it be safely applied in or near vegetable gardens or near a water source? Before you purchase a product based on a flashy TV advertisement, do some personal homework. One good resource is the Web site www.GeorgiaTurf.com. Here consumers can find unbiased research-based recommendations.The Environmental Protection Agency’s Web site at www.epa.gov/agriculture/pesticide.html lists the different types of pesticides and their requirements.For in-depth information on managing pests, see the UGA Pest Management Handbook online at www.ent.uga.edu/pmh/ or contact your local UGA Cooperative Extension Office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1.Know the facts before getting drawn in by advertising claims that are likely too good to be true.(Charlie Christian is a Morgan County Master Gardener and an avid gardener.)

Bike Repair Stations Pop Up in Monmouth County Parks, With More…

first_imgFobes said the success of these early installations has inspired the park system to pursue additional repair stations, includingpotential placement alongMonmouth County’s mostpopular trail. The station at Thompson Park is next to the children’s playground. At Dorbrook the station is near the basketball courts, while the station at the Manasquan Reservoir is situated by the main trailhead kiosk near the visitor center. The park system recently set up the 5-foot-tall Dero Fixit repair centers at Dorbrook Recreation Area in Colts Neck, Thompson Park in Lincroft, the Manasquan Reservoir and most recently at Rocky Point in Hartshorne Woods in Highlands. The Henry Hudson Trail is currently split into two sections. The northern portion stretches from Popamora Point in Highlands and travels along the Sandy Hook Bay to Matawan. The southern corridor is fractured, with splits between Matawan and Marlboro and another break between Marlboro and Freehold. “These stations are relatively new. We’ve seen them in other places around the country, but not so much in New Jersey,” said Tom Fobes, the Monmouth County Park System operations manager. In fact, the only other bike stations like these in New Jersey are located in public parks in the Essex County municipalities of Maplewood and Bridgewater. With the installment of new repair stations at popular parks and trails in the Two River area and beyond, the Monmouth County Park System is trying to keep cyclists riding despite an inconvenient flat tire or other mechanical problems. Good news for bike riders. The station located at Rocky Point in Hartshorne Woods is the newest of the four stations and was part of the recent remodel of the Historic Battery Lewis grounds and parking lot. The bike repair stations feature half a dozen tools inside to make various simple fixes, with an air pump and a shelf on top to rest the bike while making the repairs. “The other three were the result of our investigation. We put them in just to see how they would be used by bikers and if it made sense to pursue more of them. And they’ve become quite popular,” said Fobes. The stations feature a QR code that, when scanned with a smartphone, directs users to a website with instructional videos about how to make certain repairs. Instructional tutorials include how to change a flat tire, inflate tires, adjust gears and brakes and much more. If bikers aren’t near a bike repair station, Fobes said, park rangers are always available at their station houses to lend a hand. Park rangers also lead general biking classes as well as bike repair classes, which feature tips about how to use these new repair stations. By Greg Scharen and Chris Rotolo “The Henry Hudson Trail is one of the areas a donor has already expressed interest in and the potential exists for us to place multiple stations at various points along the trail,” said Fobes. Earlier this month the county received a $1.2 million federal grant to make safety improvements in the sections of Keansburg, Hazlet, Union Beach and Keyport, as well as to bridge the gaps in the southern section and extend the trail to Center Street in downtown Freehold. Fobes said the acquisition of future repair stations is certainly in the works through budgeting, grants and other sources. Creating a seamless 24-mile stretch from Highlands to Freehold has been discussed for years, but according to acquisition and design department chief Gail L. Hunton, this grant will provide the funding to finally complete the project. Hunton said trail construction could begin as early as next year. Will the plans include several new repair stations? At a cost of approximately $1,200 each, the park system may need to rely on donations. A QR code, located directly under the bike holders, can be scanned on a smartphone to direct cyclists to a site that has tutorials for fixing certain issues with bicycles.

Off the Shelf: Conversations with Authors of Children’s Books

first_imgThe Family Development Early Intervention team is always on the look-out for quality children’s books that help address some of the unique needs of military children.Seth Kastle (used with subject’s permission)The following is an interview with Seth Kastle, author of two popular children’s books, Why Is Dad So Mad? and Why Is Mom So Mad?, both dealing specifically with PTSD in parents.  This interview has been edited for length and clarity.What if any experiences do you have with the military?I retired from the Army Reserve in 2014, after 16 years in service. During my career I served as a Logistician, Infantryman, a Drill Sergeant, and a Company First Sergeant. I deployed in February 2002 to Qatar, and then in April to Mazar-E-Sharif Afghanistan until September of that year. I deployed for the initial invasion of Iraq in January of 2003 until April of 2004; I spent the majority of this tour in Mosul. I had to have a pacemaker implanted in 2010, which made me ineligible to continue my military career.What made you decide to write this book? Was there some incident or experience with the military that inspired you?I wish I could say that I was a completely benevolent person, and I simply wrote this book because I knew there was a greater need, but that is not the case. I wrote this book because of personal need. I was looking for a way to explain who I am now to my children and I could not find resources that achieved this purpose. I sat down and wrote the book along with illustration notes after a bad day at work. It took me about 30 minutes. I then did what a lot people who write do…I filed it away on my computer, never to be seen again. I had a friend who had just published a book on succeeding as a foster child who kept prodding me to take the steps to make publication a reality.Opening up and talking about my journey with PTSD has been extremely difficult for me. This is not something that is talked about much as there is a stigma that goes along with PTSD. There was hardly anyone who knew I was having problems. In fact, only my wife and two to three friends that I had been in Iraq or Afghanistan with were aware of my struggles. It was because I knew there was a large need for a book like this, that I was pushed into actually publishing it.What message do you hope that children of families receive as a result of reading these books?The thesis statements of the books are that even though Dad (or Mom) gets mad often, it is not the child’s fault. In the books I use metaphors to illustrate to children what is happening inside Dad (or Mom) when they get angry. Parenting is tough, even without additional obstacles; parents with PTSD have a harder time dealing with a lot of the common stressors of family life. It does not mean they do not love their children or care about their children’s feelings. Have you received any feedback from military families after they read your book, and if so, what have they said?This has actually been the most rewarding part of the entire book project coming to life. I have literally heard from hundreds of military families that have read my books. They have thanked me for writing the books, and they explained how this book helped them explain to their children what is happening with their Dad (or Mom). These books are not a magic fix for PTSD and family dynamics; my hope though is that they are set the stage for starting conversations. One email that sticks out in my head was from a Veteran who wrote to me and said, “You know that look your child gets the first time they understand something, my son got that look tonight when I read your book to him.” I have also had a number of Vietnam Veterans and their families reach out to me and say that they wished they had had this book 30 years ago. Some of them have even said that they bought the book for their adult children to help them understand now why things were the way they were when they were growing up.Do you have plans to write another book that focuses on the military? If so what is the focus of that book and when might we expect to see it?I feel like there needs to be a book that explains divorce to military children. The national divorce rate is high and the military is no different. I feel a large part of why my books have been successful is because they were written based on my experience, so they were true to life. Divorce is not something that I have experienced so I may not be able to do the book justice. To do it right I would need to, at a minimum, collaborate with a service member who has been through a divorce.The MFLN team has put together a one page guided discussion handout for both of Seth’s book  which providers can use with young children and their families.  You can access the handout for Why Is Mom So Mad? here and Why Is Dad So Mad? here.This post was edited by Robyn DiPietro-Wells & Michaelene Ostrosky, PhD, members of the MFLN FD Early Intervention team, which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.
