The Two River Times™ is a 2013 sponsor of “Paint The Town Pink,” a breast cancer awareness initiative sponsored by Meridian Health System. By Tom PaolellaIf you knew a test could save your life, would you put it off?Mammograms are proven to save lives, yet many women put off getting their annual mammogram screening for a variety of reasons, such as simply not wanting to know the outcome, a hectic family schedule or financial challenges.New Jersey ranks among the top 10 states in the country for both incidence and mortality rates for breast cancer. Particularly at risk are the low-income, the working poor and uninsured women. Currently there are 586,300 uninsured women living in New Jersey.Paint the Town Pink committee members and volunteersgather for the First Annual Girls Night Out in 2008 at The Downtown in Red Bank in support of the Paint the Town Pink campaign. The Sixth Annual Girls Night Out is scheduled for May 9 this year.Seven years ago, a conversation took place at Riverview Medical Center about the growing percentage of women in Monmouth County, age 40 and older, who were not getting their annual mammogram. What started as an idea to educate women has grown into one of the most prevalent awareness campaigns in our area and has dramatically impacted the lives of thousands of community neighbors – cue Paint the Town Pink.In conjunction with the Jane H. Booker Women’s Center at Riverview, the mission behind the campaign is to educate local women about a very significant fact – that early detection is a woman’s best defense against breast cancer.In 2012, Paint the Town Pink grew to eight towns with the support of residents, businesses, town officials and volunteers. Each year, everyone comes together in May to show their support and spread the Pink message. For 2013, the campaign has expanded into a Meridian Health event, encompassing both Monmouth and Ocean counties and expanding into 23 towns, making the event the most represented to date.What began as an idea seven years ago has been transformed into a grassroots initiative that is changing lives in very tangible and meaningful ways.Paint the Town Pink 2013 runs from May 1-31.For more information about Paint the Town Pink visit www.PainttheTownPink. com and be sure to follow Paint the Town Pink on Facebook to see highlights of this year’s campaign and for a complete list of events and activities.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Sarah Noggle, Ohio State University ExtensionIn trying times, where do you turn?Farmers are some of the most humble, down to earth people I know and they thrive on being able to feed the country. The stresses these farmers and farm families are enduring and hard on everyone involved. While they know that they work in a business where risks are always present due to weather, they sometimes need support and encouragement to work through their own mental and physical stress and even fatigue during these times. Most of the farmers live on the land they farm and don’t have the chance to get away from these stresses. Most of us that work, work at a place that when it gets stressful, we get to leave for the day. Farmers, on the other hand, don’t usually have this option. They live, sleep and breathe their occupation.There are so many decisions that farmers are making today into what this generation knows as uncharted territory. They are worried about wet weather, how will I feed my livestock and where will my income come from? Maybe you are a farmer reading this or maybe the farm wife, the neighbor, the family member or an agribusiness person, but one thing is for sure farmers are the heartbeat of many communities. I am asking you who are reading it to take into account some steps outside your normal routine.Slow down and breathe — farmer, farm family or other — we live in such a fast-paced world. There are decisions that are being made that affect so many people. We are truly all in this together. We need to be kind and a friend at all times.Take five minutes to take care of yourself. Depression and anxiety are real and you may seem like you can’t even put one foot in front of the other today. Let me tell you something, you are valuable, you are needed and it will be okay. Maybe not okay in the sense that you think or the direction or path that was in your “Plan A” but you will be okay.Give a smile, hello, nod or wave to another human being. Remember it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile.If you feel these families need some extra help, reach out to your local Extension Office and they will help point you in the right direction.The Ohio State University Extension is full of information to help in the decision process. No, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns — it is real-life decisions. Farmers, as you are reading the articles, remember these few things. Write down your options (the pros and cons). Talk with your local Extension educator or call them out for a farm visit. We, at OSU Extension, are here for you. We care about you even if you have never stepped foot into our office. Our service to you is free.Additionally, as you read through the articles, think about your options. When it comes to questions on prevent plant acres contact your insurance agent. Don’t just assume they know your plans. The CORN Newsletter contains recommendations based on agronomic principals and potential considerations from an agricultural production perspective. If the management will be applied to crop insured acres, you should check any impact that the management change will have on current or future insurance payments and eligibility.Please share this information in any way possible — forward the email, tweet the post #FarmLivesMatter, share to your non-farm friends, Snapchat it to your kids, post on Instagram, print it off and drop it at church or even the local grocery store. The agriculture community is powerful and has many opinions, stresses, and directions. Some people have no clue what is going on in and around the agriculture world, so share with them.Lastly, I am asking the community to check on your farmer neighbors and their families. Drop into the farm to check on the farmer and family. Bring them dinner but don’t just drop it off actually share some time with that family. They may come up with every excuse that the house is not clean or I am too busy. Maybe even drag them to your house for dinner. They may not want you there but they need you there as their support system. Getting a vacation from the farm is probably what many families are eliminating due to financial pressures, but human interaction is one powerful value. While a simple way to check in on farmers is a text message, texts don’t work in these situations. They need your empathy, not your sympathy. Go old school and play the board game, shut down the social media and have a conversation. These things only cost your time. Did you ever think about giving back to those people who help feed the world?
Klopp demands Liverpool stay ‘angry, greedy’ against Newcastleby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveJurgen Klopp wants his Liverpool side to stay hungry against Newcastle United.Klopp knows the challenge facing the team if they want to win the Premier League. While they are four points ahead of Manchester City, the two teams meet on January 3rd in what will be a titanic clash.And the Reds will want to maintain the four point gap going into that fixture.Klopp said in his press conference: “The most important thing for us is [the reaction] after you win the last game – that is why the Wolves game was such a big challenge.”Because we played against United a few days, and before that against Napoli, you are on the big stage.”Then going to Wolverhampton, not only on players’ minds but in people’s mind, you could drop focus a little bit.”So I was really happy with our attitude. That is what we need – to stay angry, greedy and in the job. That is what we have to do against Newcastle.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say
Not everyone will be able to attend the live event due to the limited seating capacity at the venue. Each person will only be allowed two tickets. Story Highlights Persons who wish to attend the annual Grand Gala event at the National Stadium on Independence Day (August 6) can get their free tickets at Juici Beef, Burger King and Tastee locations in Cross Roads, Half-Way-Tree, Downtown, and Portmore.This was disclosed by Minister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna, at a Jamaica Information Service (JIS) ‘Think Tank’ held on July 30 at the agency’s headquarters in Kingston. Each person will only be allowed two tickets.Ms. Hanna said that despite the increased number of outlets, not everyone will be able to attend the live event due to the limited seating capacity at the venue.“The stadium holds 23,000 people. It’s one of these events that everybody wants to come to, that’s why we are showcasing live on television,” she said.Grand Gala producer, Gregory Simms, said that much work has gone into improving the television product so that the event is even more enjoyable for the audience at home.He said that rehearsals are being held every day “to have the television product looking well directed and very attractive. So Jamaicans…will get an unforgettable experience in their own homes as well now,” he said.The Grand Gala is one of the highlights of the annual Emancipation and Independence celebrations.The event, to be held under the theme: ‘Celebrating Jamaica: Triumphant, Proud and Free’, will formally close out ‘Jamaica 50’ celebrations, which began last year.The objectives of the celebrations are to: commemorate the country’s 51st year of independence, and give Jamaicans an opportunity to collect keepsakes from ‘Jamaica 50’; offer presentations in dance, music, theatre and visual arts; and to recognise national heroes, Jamaican icons, and institutions.This year’s celebrations will offer rich, wholesome family-oriented entertainment, with periods of reflection and discussion. The Grand Gala is one of the highlights of the annual Emancipation and Independence celebrations.
AYLESFORD, N.S. – A forbidding, four-legged escapee from a Nova Scotia farm is back in its barn — and destined once again for the slaughterhouse.“The bull is back, the bull is back,” said Rose Horsnell, daughter of the bull’s owner, 85-year-old Jan Speelman.RCMP in Kingston said Monday morning that a one-tonne bull was reported missing from his pasture area Sunday evening.The black and white bull was spotted fleeing into woods off Long Point Road towards Berwick, between Highway 1 and Highway 101.Horsnell said the farmer’s 26-year-old grandson, J.T. Speelman, tracked the bull and found it travelled through a wooded area before returning to a barn on the property.“The grandson tracked him and found he’d come home again,” said Horsnell. “He was just looking for a shelter.”Horsnell said it’s believed the bull had leaped over a fence that was over a metre-and-a-half high to get away.But the RCMP suggested the bull was somewhat more mellow upon its return: “It was found by its owner lying down and eating hay,” the force said in a release.Horsnell said the bull was on its way to the slaughterhouse Monday before it bolted from the farm, and its brief moment of freedom hadn’t altered its destiny.Cpl. Andrew Joyce said the RCMP alerted the public out of concern the bull could collide with cars on the busy highway.“It’s a concern if it gets on a roadway and it’s a concern if someone comes across the animal out on a hike,” he said in an interview before the bull returned home.“It’s an unpredictable animal.”

Tokyo: A blind Japanese sailor completed his non-stop Pacific voyage on Saturday, local media reported, becoming the first sightless person on record to navigate a vessel across the vast ocean. Mitsuhiro Iwamoto arrived at port in Fukushima in his 12-metre (40-foot) sailboat on Saturday morning, around two months after he left California. Iwamoto, a 52-year-old San Diego resident, sailed from the US city on February 24 with Doug Smith, an American navigator who verbally helped him by offering information such as wind directions. This was his second attempt after his initial voyage was cut short six years ago when his yacht hit a whale and sank. “I’m home. Thank you,” Iwamoto told the welcoming party after his yacht sailed into Fukushima, ending a journey of some 14,000 kilometres (8,700 miles). “I didn’t give up and I made a dream come true,” Iwamoto was quoted by Japan’s Kyodo News as saying. It was the first Pacific crossing by a blind sailor, Kyodo News said. Iwamoto, who lost his sight at the age of 16, made the voyage to raise funds for charity, including efforts to prevent blinding diseases, according to his website.
