    In these days of high technology and easy access to everyone and everything, we really need to use extra caution and be smart when selling and purchasing items on the internet. Sites like Craigslist are great for buying and selling, but it is always risky. You never know who you are dealing with and unfortunately, there are always those looking to scam people and sometimes even worse....we've all heard horror stories. Long Valley now has a safe meeting place where transactions can be done. Police Headquarters has two parking spots marked "Safe Deal Zone".
    Great idea! Thanks Long Valley!

    One of my favorite annual events in Long Valley is the Historical Society's annual Historical Homes Tour. This year the tour is on Saturday, December 10th. Between being a life long town resident and a realtor, I've seen a lot of homes in Long Valley.

    However, each year I am amazed by the homes on the tour and the new facts I learn about my town. Every year there are several historic homes and a church on the tour. This year the tour will take visitors through six homes, the Pleasant Grove Cemetery and the Highlands Presbyterian Church, which will also be hosting a luncheon. All the homes are staffed with volunteers who give information about the homes. The Long Valley Garden Club creates beautiful arrangements for each home.

    I always view the tour as a great opportunity to spend a day with my friends and kick off the holidays! The tour is from 11:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the tour. For more information visit the Historical Society's website listed below.

    October is National Breast Caner Awareness Month. Dr. Ron Weiss will be speaking on October 15th and 19th at 1:00 p.m. at his Ethos Health location, 177 E. Mill Road, Long Valley. His talk will be about the prevention and treatment for breast cancer with food. This is a free event.

    In August of 2014, Dr. Weiss launched New Jersey's first farm-based practice. Weiss bought his Long Valley farm five years ago with the intention of creating such a practice. The Ethos Health farm intends to show that it is not only the types of foods that are put in the body that affect health, but how foods are grown that make a difference .

    Dr. Weiss offers services such as primary care physician, farm stand and cooking classes. Check out his website at http://www.myethoshealth.com

    A friend added me to a group on Facebook today. It is called 'Long Valley Helping Hands'. It made me so happy and proud to be part of this caring community! Let me give you a summary of why it was created. Community members saw the need to use social media as a way to offer any type of assistance to those in need. It could be for help with picking up prescriptions when you have a sick child. Maybe you have an injury and need help with picking up groceries. There's help for carpooling kids, assistance with meals and more. The point is residents of Long Valley are part of a caring community that offers help when needed.

    The weather at Rock Spring Park in Long Valley could not have been better on July 19th! This wonderful event, put together by so many organizations for the Long Valley community, was free of charge! There was a great turnout by the community.

    The event included emergency services with fire trucks and ambulances plus a Jaws-of-Life drill. There was a helicopter visit, and the RE/MAX hot air balloon rides which collected donations for the local food pantry. Ort Farms donated watermelons and the use of their truck. Taylor Ice Cream of Chester donated ice cream among many other organizations supporting and hosting the fabulous community that I'm so happy to be a part of!

    Driving through the Long Valley section of Washington Twp you are just drawn in to the beautiful rolling hills and meandering roads. You feel as if you stepped back in time. I recently stopped at a farm where they made local cheese, and it was delicious, can't wait to go back.

    Earlier this year, Long Valley was named as the safest town in New Jersey. Now it is ranked as the 4th safest town in the USA! For an area 60 miles from New York City, that is quite a feat. You can live a short ride from New York City in a gorgeous town with the most preserved farm land in the state, that is the safest town in the state and the fourth safest in the nation. Raise your children here with peace of mind!

    As if there weren't enough reasons to want to live in Long Valley/Washington Township, we were just rated fourth safest town in America...Yes, I said fourth in America according to safewise.com. The category is for towns with a population of over 10,000 residents. You have to contribute this to the community and police department who do a fabulous job keeping us all safe.

    Although bald eagles are certainly not common in this area, low and behold, one was spotted by motorists driving on West Mill Road on September 18th! There are many treasured moments to experience in Long Valley. You just never know what you will see! So lucky to be part of this beautiful, safe countryside....Most people arriving at Newark Airport or driving on the turnpike have no idea about the hidden treasure of Long Valley! If they only knew.

    Even a young college student appreciates the beauty and community feel that Long Valley has. In the link below this young lady, Nicole Scanlan, describes our wonderful town. It only validates the feelings of the "older" residents living here. My family has lived here since 1997. I've had the joy of seeing my children grow up here. From attending pre-school at Long Valley Christian Nursery School, all the way to graduating from the top rated West Morris Central High School. . . Well, I still have a junior at the high school before I am officially an empty nester! I wouldn't want my 'nest' to be any other place than Long Valley.

    There are a few wonderful advantages of living in Long Valley such as the gorgeous scenery, and the numerous outdoor activities available. One of my favorite things to do is to ride my bicycle on the Columbia Trail.

    The Columbia Trail stretches from Bartley Road (near West Morris Central High School) to High Bridge. It’s a 16.2 mile pass through the center of Long Valley and Califon. The trail was formerly the Central Railroad, which was built to transport coal and iron from the mines in Morris County for use in the Taylor Wharton Iron and Steel Company, the oldest foundry in US history. The rails were dismantled in 1980, and the Columbia Gas Company ran an underground gas pipeline beneath the old rail bed. The Park Commissions of Hunterdon and Morris Counties operate and maintain the trail.

    The trail is very flat, so it makes for an easy ride that follows the south branch of the Raritan River and passes through beautiful farmland, wooded areas, and the Ken Lockwood Gorge. The bridge over the Gorge is particularly scenic and below you can view people fly-fishing.
    One of the most charming aspects of the trail are the “gnome homes” and other vignettes created by trail users. As you bike or walk, it is great fun to come upon a miniature-handcrafted house, scene or even an entire village hand painted on rocks.

    The trail is terrific for family bike rides, an easy ride for the younger bikers and very safe, with the only traffic being other bikers, walkers or an occasional horseback rider. One can hop on the trail at Bartley Road or in the center of Long Valley, Califon or High Bridge. All three towns offer charming places to lunch or snack before resuming your ride.

    Ever drive across Schooley’s Mountain and wonder about the history of the General Store? Built about 1830, it is one of the oldest continuously run general stores in the United States. Joseph Heath, who also owned Heath House, which catered to visitors to the Schooley’s Mountain Mineral Springs in the 1800’s, built it.

    The General Store was in the Skinner Family for many years. As a child, I have many fond memories of the store, especially the original glass Penny Candy Counter! There used to be a potbelly stove in the middle of the store. Often there was a basket of kittens snuggling with their mother. As a teenager, I was grateful for the gas pumps that were in front of the store. One had to go inside and tell Charlie Skinner that you needed gas. Cheerfully, Charlie would whistle while pumping gas for 35 cents a gallon.

    One of biggest controversies in town was when the new owner decided several years ago to change the color of the building from red to its present color. That’s one of my favorite things about Long Valley, “rated the safest town in NJ”, our biggest controversial topic is a paint color change on a building! Some things never change…the charming post office, friendly faces, the ability to bump into old friends and the chance to make new ones while waiting for a delicious sandwich to be made. If you haven’t stopped in, please do!

    Many city folk travel to Long Valley during the days of autumn to appreciate Long Valley's beautiful countryside. I am lucky to have lived here for 181/2 years! Part of our autumn rituals was to visit Ort Farms, be it on school trips with Old Farmer's Road School, or with my husband and three children for our fall ritual of hay rides, corn maze and pumpkin picking. This year, Ort Farms celebrates their 100th anniversary. They are the 2016 recipient of the Century Farm Award from the New Jersey Agricultural Society. The farm is known for continually giving back to the community.

    In celebration of their anniversary, there will be a customer appreciation weekend on Sept. 17-18. There will be music, food, games and family fun. Some of the old farming equipment will be on display and there will be demonstrations of farming techniques that were used in the past. Be sure to come out and celebrate throughout the year!

    Long Valley has a strong community bond and residents are always there to help each other. For those struggling to make ends meet, the Food Pantry is a great resource. Located at the Presbysterian Church on West Mill Rd, they've just expanded their hours to include Saturdays. Both the Long Valley Middle School and West Morris Central High School are involved in 'Stuff the Bus' program when they fill the bus with donations. I'm proud to be a resident!

    History in Washington Township is well respected and is home to a patriotic landmark sculpted from a well known local tree. The Liberty Eagle, was sculpted 1999 from the dying Liberty Tree. Thousands see this landmark on a daily basis at the intersection of Flocktown and Schooley's Mountain Roads. The Liberty Eagle is referred to as "Bert" and was sculpted with only a mallet and chisel. Harry Robinson of Bernardsville was a professional civil engineer but sculpting was his hobby. It took six months to transform the centuries-old tree into a local landmark! Harry Robinson continued sculpting up until just a few months before he passed.

    Long Valley (also known as Washington Township) abounds with high quality horse farms, which feel right at home with the rolling hills and open spaces. Be it introducing your child to the delights of riding ponies at a young age, lessons for teens who are into showing (hunters, jumpers, etc.), adults wanting to learn dressage or simply anyone who wants the relaxation of riding as a new hobby, there are lots of choices in this town.

    Most facilities have beautiful indoor areas for riding in inclement weather, and many have trails and outdoor rings as well. From a simple low-key place for kids to ride and have fun (and maybe attend summer riding camp) to the most elegant upscale place - you'll have a wide range of choices and make friends with like-minded people.

    A fender bender...happens to most people in life if not once, several times. You know what I am speaking of when you are not paying attention at a stoplight and you take your foot off the brake slightly and boom, you hit the car in front of you. Well, this unfortunately happened to my husband.

    We were grateful over the years that we had been free of this, but we found ourselves wondering where to go. We live in Long Valley and hence went to Long Valley Auto Body on Fairview Avenue. We interacted with David and John who have been the owners for 13 years. They were helpful, friendly and straight forward and walked us through the process. It was certainly convenient to have this done in town. In speaking with them I learned that they not only do repairs and collisions but they also restore old cars.
