Legislation sponsored by Assemblywomen Connie Wagner and Joan Voss (both D-Bergen) to prohibit the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors and include e-cigarettes in the New Jersey Smoke Free Air Act, which prohibits smoking in indoor public places and workplaces, was unanimously released today by an Assembly panel. Wagner said she's concerned e-cigarettes are being marketed to children because they offer flavors like chocolate, banana and strawberry and could serve as a gateway to real cigarette use.

Corzine. “When used properly, credit cards can be a great financial tool,” said Love (D-Camden). “Unfortunately, many college students do not understand how credit works and wind up getting themselves and their parents into financial trouble by spending more than they can possibly pay.”

Eating local embodies the spirit of the first Thanksgiving, when Puritans and Wampanoags sat down together to share a meal, which consisted mainly of shellfish, eels, wild fowl (including swans and eagles) and other local foods that they could gather or grow.
When we source our foods locally, we eat in season and celebrate what's available locally.

Ask a traditionalist about wine-and-food pairings, and be prepared for a lecture on the virtues of serving Rioja with rosemary grilled lamb chops or Champagne with oysters.
