Fairfield Center Jewelers
Fine jewelry is a time honored gift that has marked special occasions and become the family heirloom that passes down the generations. Quality and style are the most important factors in choosing fine diamonds, gemstones and jewelry. Quality is also important when you're choosing a jeweler to educate and advise you.
At Fairfield Center Jewelers, we're proud to be members of the American Gem Society (AGS), the jewelry industry's watchdog organization insofar as ethics, integrity, and general business practices are concerned. The American Gem Society's membership roster includes only 3-4% of all the jewelers in America. We are a highly regarded group whose credentials are evaluated and tested every year. Each member store and individual is required to conduct themselves with the highest levels of professionalism, never misrepresenting their products or their gemological skills -- all to bring the highest levels of product quality, value and service to each customer experience.
We invite you to visit our store, experience our wide selection of the finest diamonds, gemstones, jewelry, timepieces and giftware from around the world. Our proudly displayed AGS logo is your assurance that you are dealing with experienced professionals and a store that is committed to ongoing improvement of product knowledge, consumer service of the highest caliber, and above all, integrity.
Fairfield Center Jewelers has deep roots in the greater Fairfield community dating back to 1933. Founded by Louis Sussman, the business has passed down to his sons Harvey and Jerome. Harvey still maintains a strong presence as the family tradition continues with his son, Robert Sussman, and Jerry's son-in-law, Howard Diamond. We are Fairfield's longest established family owned and operated jeweler. We are so very proud of our 79-year commitment to our customers and their families. We also pride ourselves on having the finest quality products at values that every member of our community would want to wear.
Our on-the-premises workshop allows us to better serve you in servicing your jewelry. Expert appraisal, remounting, sizing, stringing, watch repair and refurbishing complete our list of services. Knowing where your jewelry is while it's being repaired has been a long-time tradition here at Fairfield Center Jewelers. Please allow our workshop and qualified staff to create that special item for your occasion -- one that will surely become tomorrow's treasured family heirloom. Feel free to call us at 259-5693, or visit our web site: www.fairfieldcenterjewelers.com.
Roger Ludlow had it right, when in 1639, he settled what became the Connecticut Colony's fourth town and named it "Fairfield."
But while Ludlow never succeeded in his goal of creating a Greater Fairfield, he may have contributed something even more longlasting to the town: a bold, confident, entrepreneurial spirit and a dynamism that has extended into the 21st century, and upon which the Fairfield Citizen-News and its predecessors have reported for more than 130 years.
Today's Fairfield is a thriving economic, social, educational and cultural community whose influence resonates beyond southwestern Connecticut and continues to delight current residents and attract new ones.
Though itself only 33 years old, the Fairfield Citizen-News nonetheless can claim a journalistic heritage of serving this tradition-proud but forward-looking community for 135 years because, when in October 1970, resident Peter Ball launched the Fairfield Citizen and Chronicle, he linked his new paper's present and future to the Southport Chronicle. The Chronicle was founded in 1867, remained in print until 1901, was revived in 1947 and ran until 1952. When Ball began his own paper, he was given permission to add "Chronicle" to its name.
When B.V. Brooks purchased the Fairfield Citizen in 1973, he pledged that "it will continue as Fairfield's community newspaper," but only better and with "more comprehensive coverage of news, features, sports and all of the things always looked for in a community paper."
In 1974, the newspaper added "News" to its title and on Oct. 2, 1981, added a Friday edition. In 2000, MediaNews Group, the seventh largest newspaper publishing company in the United States, purchased the Fairfield Citizen-News and its sister papers.
Although the issues deemed important to a community change over time, and despite the presence of a daily and weekly newspaper that also serve the town, the Fairfield Citizen-News has remained the definitive voice of Fairfield, a fact that has been recognized by its readers and by its professional peers.
Much of the Fairfield Citizen-News' critical success -- the paper has received more than 130 awards in its existence -- is attributable to a dedicated and long-serving staff that is intimately attuned to events in the town.
Of the Fairfield Citizen-News' staff, Editor Patricia Hines has been at her post since November 1986, while Sports Editor Todd Burger has covered Fairfield since October 1987, and Managing Editor Rachel Sadlowski is in her eighth year with the paper. Living section editor Michele Herrmann has been with the newspaper since November 2000 and staff reporter Marc van der Pol since October 2000. Newcomers Alexis Harrison and Jessica Papini began their reporting jobs in fall 2002. The editorial staff is complemented by advertising representatives Pamela Clark, Maria Casale and Nancy Roberts.
As the Fairfield Citizen-News looks forward to another decade of serving Fairfield -- a service, which has also included sponsorship, promotion or direct involvement in charitable projects -- the newspaper continues to be guided by the mission statement first published in the Nov. 21, 1973, issue: "a voice for and of all citizens, all readers."
The Fairfield Citizen-News editorial office can be contacted by calling 255-4561 and advertising at 849-1600. Visit the Web site at www.fairfieldcitizen-news.com.
Fairfield University is a comprehensive Jesuit university that prepares students for lives of leadership and service in a constantly changing world. Aside from its role as an acclaimed undergraduate institution, the University also offers an array of graduate studies in business, engineering, mathematics, education and allied professions, nursing, and American Studies. Fairfield University ranked third among universities with master's programs in the North by "U.S. News & World Report."
An AACSB International-accredited institution, the Charles F. Dolan School of Business offers an M.S. in Finance degree as well as M.B.A. programs in accounting and taxation, finance, general management, human resource management, information systems & operations management, international business, and marketing. Generous contributions from individuals such as Mr. Dolan have enabled the graduate program to grow in the past few years. Its strong connections to corporate America, coupled with its proximity to New York City, have made the graduate program ideal for those currently employed or seeking to transition within the business world.
The School of Engineering has just introduced a new Master of Science degree program in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Along with the two current Master's programs in Software Engineering and in Management of Technology, these graduate degree offerings provide engineers with opportunities for specialized advanced studies in areas of crucial interest to modern industrial and technology enterprises. Whether the need is for hardware or software solutions, graduates of these Master's programs will be decision makers in the evolution and management of technology in their companies, and an invaluable asset to their employers.
Graduate students pursuing a Master of Science in Mathematics, come from both the business world and the field of education. They work closely with faculty members in order to challenge, as well as to refine, their mathematical skills.
Through the School of Nursing master's degree and post-master's certificate programs, students prepare for professional practice in one of two roles: as a nurse practitioner specializing in adult, family, or psychiatric care; or, as a healthcare systems leader. The School's curricula meet all state and national standards, and its graduates have been highly successful, with virtually 100 percent job placement after graduation. The University's nursing faculty maintain clinical expertise through active practice, while students gain valuable experience in a wide range of carefully supervised clinical placements.
The graduate program in American Studies provides students the opportunity to enrich their understanding of the American experience through a wide array of courses arranged within an interdisciplinary method of learning. The program is not merely for those entering or currently working in the field of education; it also serves as a challenge to anyone from stay-at-home parents to retirees, who are searching for an academically challenging and intellectually stimulating experience.
The University's Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions allows students to explore careers in education as well as the allied professions of special education, school counseling, community counseling, marriage and family therapy, school psychology and applied psychology. In its most recent reaccredidation, the GSEAP was noted to have met all state standards at either the "fully met" or "met with distinction" levels -- an accomplishment that no other Connecticut institution has achieved.
With new classrooms and offices opened this past year, University College, Fairfield University's program for continuing studies, has improved its programs to focus on the academic needs of its part-time students. University College provides an outlet to corporations, community organizations and individuals who wish to benefit from the University's many academic resources. Students can strengthen their existing credentials through professional development non- credit certificates and advanced professional certificates. They can also pursue academic resources abroad via the College's study abroad programs. Finishing a degree has just become easier with credit and non-credit courses offered over the Internet. University College also allows students to take advantage of summer session and weeklong intercession courses, giving students the ability to pursue their education at their convenience.

"Your back ... In balance," is the motto used at Pro-Health Chiropractic to summarize its mission of helping patients reach their health goals through personalized, quality care in a technologically advanced atmosphere.
Owned by Dr. Robert W. Kipp, Pro-Health Chiropractic is located at 2600 Post Road, Suite L2 in Southport. The office utilizes traditional chiropractic practices side-by-side with digital x-rays and other cutting-edge technology in an effort to relieve pain, correct problems, and help patients feel and function their best.
Dr. Kipp explains, "Chiropractic focuses on improving the communication between the brain and the rest of the body so that aches and pains go away. Once that happens, we then focus on correcting the issue that caused the pain in the first place."
From treatment of neck and back pain to stress, headaches, posture, spinal decay, and other health problems, patients can expect nothing less than the highest quality care in the office. The state-of-the-art technology only adds to the experience that a patient can expect to encounter. The office's digital x-ray system allows patients to receive a copy of their x-rays on computer CD in case there is a need for follow-up elsewhere.
Communicating with the patient's primary physician is also easy and fast thanks to Pro-Health Chiropractic's completely electronic patient file system. Sending patient records and notes to another doctor is always "just a couple of clicks away," remarks Dr. Kipp.
"Our commitment to customer service is what makes us stand out above the rest," says Dr. Kipp. "We keep our appointments on time, our office spotlessly clean, and we never have a bad day." All staff members, including the doctor, are required to go through weekly in-office training as well as attend several continuing education seminars throughout the year in order to ensure that they are at "100%."
Chiropractic care treatment programs at the office can include different types of chiropractic adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, and custom exercise programs based on the individual case. Dr. Kipp states, "We pride ourselves on a complete and custom approach that gets our patients involved in their own care and gets results."
Pro-Health Chiropractic also offers special services to businesses such as posture screenings for employees and workshops that are tailored to different business types. "We need to show people that there are options, and the way to do that is through education," says Dr. Kipp.

Identity theft and personal privacy invasion are at all time highs. We live in a society where the careless disposal of sensitive information can lead to a world of trouble.

Splash Hand Wash
ShredStation Express — "Because your home shredder just won't cut it"
An ad in the Sunday New York Times in the spring of 1981 led to over two decades of car washing and the creation of one of the largest car wash operations in the country. What was supposed to be a simple, turnkey business, morphed into a major operation employing more than 250 people and washing over one million cars per year. What caused the meteoric growth of over 1000% in the past six years is what Splash has coined 'The Great Differentiation.' Take a car-care need, and convert it to a car-care experience.
Splash Car Wash is the 18th largest car-care company in the country and has become a leader in the car wash industry. In 1999 Splash became the only car wash company to have employees win both the 'Most Valuable Car Washer' and 'Car Wash Manager of the Year' awards in the same year. Splash has been voted #1 Car Wash of Fairfield and Westchester Counties for five consecutive years and was a finalist for the prestigious American Business Awards. It uses the latest technologies and the most highly trained employees to get your vehicle clean.

Town Planner Calendar
Effective advertising is much simpler to achieve than most businesspeople believe. Create an effective message and repeat, repeat, repeat!
One of the best known ways to deliver effective advertising is with a calendar, historically given away by businesses to their customers to develop and maintain loyalty. Because of high cost, this is now done infrequently, and no business could ever afford to give calendars away to prospects.
Now there is the Town Planner Community Calendar. Created to share the costs among non-competitive sponsors, Town Planner is delivered free of charge by mail to over 120,000 Fairfield County households for less than the cost of a first-class stamp. And over 9 out of 10 families that receive it keep it and use it 30 days a month.
Why do families keep it? It is designed perfectly. Town Planner is a wall calendar, the number-one used format, with big boxes for writing the family's activities plus preprinted local school schedules and community activities as well as phone numbers and recycling information. It makes a practical calendar local, informative and useful.
Your business can be on display every day inside the homes of your target community with a message that repeats, repeats, repeats. Call Chuck Sussman at 203-656-3667 or email email@example.com for more information.
