FLEMINGTON, NJ – Automotive News is an industry publication, so if you visit its website, you’ll find the articles are mostly targeted to insiders, not to consumers.

That’s why in its video feature called “The Dealer Speaks,” you’re most likely to hear about the nuts-and-bolts of the car business, rather than the excitement of buying a new car or discovering the latest model.

Steve Kalafer, the chairman of the Flemington Car & Truck Country Family of Brands, was recently featured in an Automotive News Dealer Speaks profile. And while he’s candid about the industry – such as explaining why he sold his Nissan franchise and what the challenges are for Volkswagen – he offers insight that’s relevant to everyone.

Why does Kalafer still go to work every day even after 41 years? What are the two ways to do anything? What happened to his hair? Kalafer answers those questions and offers a few lessons that apply to all – no matter our place in  life.

The feature runs just 10 minutes. It’s worth your time – think of it as a 10-minute TED Talk. Just click here.

To the editor:

Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs. Maslow stated that our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on.

Peter Jacob, Clear Choice for CD7

To the editor,

In the fall of 2016, I was driving down Main Street in Flanders. As I always do before an election, I was conferring with my sister about the available choices for voting on my way to the polls. The last thing I said before I hung up, “You are going to want to make sure you check out Peter Jacob.” He is a 30 year old social worker who works with the ...

Carotid artery dissection. It’s one of the most common causes of stroke in younger adults.
