Monday, August 29, 2005. Richard, Sara, and Daniel went hiking near the Wawayanda State Park where the Appalachian Trail (AT) crosses Route 94. We followed the AT up Wawayanda Mountain in Hewitt, New Jersey. It took us almost 2 hours to climb to the peak. We stopped many times to eat and drink water. We reached the viewing area, just off the Appalachian Trail at about 4:30 pm, then headed back down. We arrived back in Hillsborough at exactly 7:00 pm. Along the way home we stopped at a gas station and bought some ice cream.

Selma Louise Norton (1921- ) in the Bergen Record on November 08, 1984 on page E-13.
"It is not know who first said 'necessity is the mother of invention.' But it is known thet Sally Norton successfully applied the saying to correct the flooding problem at her Paramus home. Every time it rained, the water from her neighbor's yard washed down an incline on Ms. Norton's property, erodong precious topsoil and nutrients. And if the showers persisted, plantings were uprooted and killed. Frustrated and upset by the problem. Ms Norton turned to newspapers - but not the want ads - for help. She built a four-foot-high retaining wall of folded newspapers that now absorbs the water before it floods her yard. 'I don't know where I got the idea.' she says. 'I was desperate. Where are you going to get enough stones to build a wall? I am 63 years old, and its not easy to carry stones But you can carry newspapers and build a wall.' A conservationist who composts vegetables, leaves, branches, and grass clippings. Ms. Norton started building the wall four years ago."
