Never forget?

In some cases I know it would help so many if they could forget...



-The ones with mental and emotional illness who live every moment with the anguish of personal loss.

-The ones who have survived after losing those who were killed.

-The ones who are still dying-literally everyday, from cancer and related diseases.

It was impossible to not see and feel, that after 9/11, there was a distinct “we’re in this together” feeling in America-a feeling that feels all but lost to what appears to be unbending extremism-extremism and a lack of tolerance (and the lack of “All American focused” leadership) on absolutely both so called “sides”-which has resulted in a very split nation.....which is no good for America.

WE were attacked “because” of everything America stands for...tolerance, acceptance, freedom and liberty for everyone.

So now on the 19th year following 9/11/01...I hope those who are sick are able to survive....those who lost love ones are able to find peace —-and lastly —-I hope somehow our Nation can come together again —without it being because of another massive, murderous attack on our people.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.

Tips for Preventing Bathroom Exhaust Fan Fires
Although you may not think about it frequently, your bathroom exhaust fan is like any other electrical appliance. And like others, these exhaust fans can pose a fire risk if they aren’t properly taken care of. Stay safe and reduce that risk by following our tips on how to keep your bathroom ceiling fan well maintained.
Bathroom Ceiling Fan Checkup
A visual review of your exhaust fan can offer up a lot of critical details. Most of the time, details on the well-being of your fan are hiding in plain sight. Discoloration, odd sounds, the fan itself slow to start up, dusty build up — these are all clues that you’re going to want to look out for. Here’s some other key advice:
Consider replacing older fans. Before you take on the task of cleaning your exhaust fan, take a look at the age and condition of the fan. Many are in use long after they should have been retired. If yours looks really old, it’s probably time to replace it. Hire a licensed electrician to replace the fan with a thermally insulated fan. Be on the lookout for warning signs like the ones below.
Scraping sounds at startup. If your fan is making a lot of noise as it’s rotating, that can spell trouble for the motor. If that contact should halt the fan’s rotation altogether, it can cause the motor to overheat and lead to a fire.
Signs of melting or burning. Because the fan is venting away air, it can be difficult to smell fans in trouble. A mild burning smell or scent of ozone is a clue to pay attention to. Your fan may be telling you that bigger problems are on the horizon. Look for melted wires and wire nuts, as issues like these are likely going to get worse and could spark a fire if left alone. If this is the case, get a licensed electrician to look for wire damage and have them inspect the entire circuit.
Bathroom Exhaust Fan Maintenance
Keep your bathroom vent fan working well for years to come by checking it once in a while. You’re going to need to remove the cover to inspect it, so take a look at the owner’s manual for details on how the cover can be removed. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on cleaning the unit as well. Once the faceplate is off, here’s what you’ll need to do:
Get rid of the dusty build up. The small slits on most exhaust vents can quickly become choked up with debris or blocked altogether when dirt collects over time. The good news is, this is an easy problem to solve.
Wash and let dry. Wipe the dust away with a wet cloth and rinse the cloth in warm soapy water. Another option is to submerge the faceplate into warm soapy water. If you find any mold on the inside, put a little bleach into the water to keep it from returning quickly. Wipe down the interior of the fan housing with a rag as well.
Clean the ducts. Often, dust and dirt collect on the ducts that channel the vented air outside, making it difficult for the fan to work efficiently. It can cause the fan to overheat, posing a fire risk. Pick up a flexible duct cleaning extension kit at your local hardware store and use it clean up those hard to reach areas. You may need to uninstall the fan to get into the ducting behind it. Again, hiring a licensed electrician is a good idea if you’re not familiar with how the fan’s installed.
Use LED lightbulbs. Swap out incandescent light bulbs, if your fan uses them, with low-heat, energy saving LED light bulbs. These bulbs will decrease the electric load placed on the circuit and the exhaust fan.
Install a timer switch. Leaving the fan on for hours at a time can really put the unit at risk for trouble. Consider installing a timer-based switch that will turn the fan off automatically.
Manage buildup with canned air. In between thorough cleanings, you can keep the build-up to a minimum with a few bursts from canned air that’s typically used for cleaning electrical equipment. Be sure to turn the fan on before cleaning.
Mark your calendar. Set up a meeting with your bathroom ceiling fan twice a year and clean it thoroughly. Go through the steps above to make sure all is well.

From the Business Administrator


Please share this message with your neighbors. The Township has been in frequent contact with representatives of JCP&L – we continue to press them to get the remaining power restored to 3,210 Township homes. Most of the vehicles that JCP&L has assigned to our Township are crews from out-of-state. We have been informed that more crews from Florida are arriving today. Some of these crews are tree crews that are continuing to remove branches or trees from wires. Other crews are lines crews that are replacing or reconnecting power lines. On the Township’s part, we continue to assist JCP&L and our residents by assigning Public Works employees to work 12 hours per day clearing streets and removing brush to help JCP&L crews access our neighborhoods. Public Works crews have been schedule to continue their efforts on Saturday. The Township in conjunction with our Volunteer Fire & EMS Company and CERT team is also continuing to make potable water available to residents. Residents may bring containers and fill up to 10 gallons per visit at either the Country Lakes or Presidential Lakes firehouses. Potable water will be available at both firehouses today, from 3:30 PM – 7:30 PM, and tomorrow, from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Additionally, at Presidential Lakes Firehouse ONLY, from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM, residents may charge cell phones. While it is our hope that JCP&L will have the remaining power restored to homes by tomorrow evening, these plans are subject to change if power is restored sooner. In such case, the Township will notify residents via a Nixle alert.
