At a future hearing, the board will decide how much of the state's court costs he will be ordered to pay; the tab is expected...
  • NJ Poll Puts Obama’s Performance Rating At All-Time Personal Low (41% in NJ!)

    WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J.(CBS) – A new poll suggests many New Jersey residents don’t have a lot of confidence in President Obama’s performance in office. That’s the assessment of the Monmouth University Polling Institute. Director Patrick Murray breaks down the numbers: “He’s got a 41-percent approve to 54-percent disapprove rating among the state’s voters. He does a little better among all adults…45-percent to 50-percent. But these are the worst numbers that we have ever recorded in our poll for President Obama since he took office in 2009.”

"Officials were afraid that if it came out that the snake was an anaconda it would cause mass hysteria. It needed to come out, it is a public safety issue."

The two candidates clashed repeatedly during a May 21 radio show, when MacArthur portrayed Lonegan as a big spender, and Lonegan portrayed MacArthur as a crony capitalist tool of the Chamber of Commerce. Lonegan said that MacArthur won the chamber’s support by agreeing to back the “comprehensive immigration reform” plan, which would increase levels of immigration. “You have to answer ‘yes’ to that question to get that endorsement,” Lonegan said.

    BLOOMFIELD, NJ (WABC) -- The tale of the police dashcam video has now helped clear a Bloomfield, New Jersey man who faced a multitude of criminal charges, including eluding police and assault.

It was quite a turnabout, all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter have been dismissed, and two Bloomfield police officers have been indicted for falsifying reports, and one of them, for assault.

According to the Governor’s order: I authorize and empower the Commissioner of the Department of Transportation to take all...

    Those assuming we would have to wait until summer, or at least a thaw, for a new entry in the revered YouTube genre of Public Transit Freakouts underestimated the great state of New Jersey. Yesterday, with snow on the ground, a large and nude man paraded around the middle of the street before engaging some poor bus driver and, eventually, the police. Nor was the weather enough to deter a crowd from gathering.
