Single women in their 30s hate one question more than any other: "Why aren't you married?" Rather than reply with a defiant shout of independence, "Eat Pray Love" merely repeats the question, and then shrugs.
Based on the best-selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, "Eat Pray Love" stars Julia Roberts as the writer who leaves her marriage and the life she thought she'd always wanted to take a yearlong journey of self-discovery across Italy, India and Indonesia.

Assemblywoman Connie Wagner would you please check into this type of cellphone abuse?
Before I left on vacation I stopped off at the nearby nursing home where my friend was spending her last few hours. Her family had urged me to go on my vacation but I felt that I had to stop in for a last farewell. There was an aide at her bedside getting ready to clean her up, but delayed so that I could visit with the sick patient. The aide immediately got on her cellphone and stood nearby while I was trying to communicate with my comatose friend. The communication effort required me to speak loudly trying to reach into the almost beyond.

Q. What to do in our new master bath? We've picked out our "furniture," including a good-looking vanity with space for double sinks. Here's the question: Would it be tacky to do a theme bath? Maybe French Provincial? Our bedroom is all blue-and-white toile. We just don't want to be too cutesy.
A: Why not? It's your private bath, after all. Who else is coming in there with you?

"We take a small amount of contaminated material and use it to create vast quantities of water unfit for human consumption," says Narain. And we do it several times a day, in every American household, suspending a yearly average of 80 pounds of waste in 75,000 gallons of water per family.

Measure Will Provide State Funding for Public School Districts Providing Special Ed Services to Out-of-State Students Enrolled in In-District Private Schools
Legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Connie Wagner to shield public school districts from having to assume the special education costs for out-of-state students enrolled in private schools within the district has been signed into law.
“New Jersey has many outstanding schools that provide special education services and it’s understandable that parents from out-of-state would want to send their children here, but it’s simply not feasible to expect our public school districts to shoulder the costs of them doing so,” said Wagner (D-Bergen).

Meadowlands Race Track Losing Out On Valuable Audience During NFL Games
Following the second meeting of New Jersey’s Legislative Gaming Summit today, Assemblywoman Connie Wagner, who participated in the summit, questioned the logic behind the decision to close the Meadowlands race track on NFL game days. “The whole point of this summit is to think outside the box to generate ways to revitalize the state’s entertainment and gaming industries.

Education reform legislation Assembly members Mila Jasey, Joan Voss and Paul Moriarty sponsored to create a permanent public school choice program to allow parents to move their children to schools located across district lines was signed into law on Friday.
"Public school choice is an important step to ensuring each child has the ability to attend a school that is best-suited to their individual needs and talents," said Jasey (D-Essex), a former member of the South Orange-Maplewood Board of Education. "More importantly, public school choice programs can improve educational outcomes for students without seeing taxpayer money funneled out of New Jersey's strong public school system.”
