Broad, Bipartisan Coalition Thanks Governor Christie for Standing Up for Homeowners by Banning Fees
Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) took swift action last week to protect New Jersey homeowners by signing A. 2861 to restrict Wall Street Home Resale Fees (also known as “private transfer fees”). The new law places a ban on these fees, a dangerous new financial scheme that steals home equity, lowers home resale values and adds another layer of difficulty to selling a home.

Dr. Steve Elias and Family
Englewood, New Jersey (December 13, 2010) - When asked how he would like his family’s donation acknowledged, Dr. Steve Elias, director of the Center for Vein Disease, chose a seemingly humble marker, but one that will mean a lot to many individuals in the years to come. “I wanted to sponsor an outdoor bench at the front entrance to The Kaplen Pavilion where patients and families could rest, get some fresh air or wait for a ride. A bench in the sun is my utopia,” said Dr. Elias.

A key selling point in “healthcare reform” is a new kind of research—a kind that will supposedly make medicine more efficient and less costly, unlike the old kind of research that brought us medical miracles. You should care about it, because you will be a subject (or “guinea pig” as some prefer to say), without your consent. And of course you will be paying for it, at a time when so many Americans can’t pay their rent.

There is no such thing as a "free" government benefit. Ask small-business owners who are footing skyrocketing bills for bottomless jobless benefits. While politicians in Washington negotiate a deal to provide welcome temporary payroll, income and estate tax relief to America's workers, struggling employers wonder how long they'll have to pay for the compassion of others -- and whether they can survive.

Alastair McIndoe, member of the Maywood Fire Police and volunteer for Companion Animal Advocates (CAA) recently donated pet oxygen masks to the Maywood Fire Department on behalf of CAA. The masks come in three sizes for large, medium and small dogs/cats. These specially sized masks will enable firefighters to deliver oxygen to pets in need and in some cases save their lives.

OK. Black Friday is a blur and Cyber Monday is behind us, but who has time to relax, get cozy and fire up the Kindle? Probably not many of us until after the holidays, but you can still send the gift of a stylish "book" to all your fashionable friends who love to devour the latest treatises on trends (and yes, we know they love to show these books off on their coffee tables, too!) — so much for those e-books, right?
