In New Jersey Politics, Voters Prefer Checks And Balances; Want Democratic Legislature Paired With GOP Governor


Favor Obama Re-election in 2012 by nine points

With all 120 seats up for grabs in November, a Rutgers- Eagleton Poll finds that voters prefer to keep Democrats in control of the New Jersey Legislature. A majority (54 percent) want Democrats as a check on Gov. Chris Christie, while 37 percent want Republicans in charge to support their leader’s plans for change. However, the poll finds an undercurrent of anti-incumbency: only 30 percent would vote for their “current legislators” while 54 percent would “prefer to vote for someone new.”

Towing a Big Boat on the Road? BoatUS Trailering Club Offers Discount Wide-Load Permit Service



It’s not wise to be caught without an “oversize” permit if your boat is wider than eight-and-a-half feet.

Wide-Load Trip Planning Tips

If your boat has a beam greater than eight-and-a-half-feet, 47 states as well as the District of Columbia require a wide-load or “oversize” permit to tow it over the road. If you’re towing the boat locally, getting one permit isn’t that hard if you are familiar with the process.
However, for longer trips across state lines, getting the necessary multiple permits isn’t that simple because each state requires its own permit. That’s a lot of time and paperwork. To help make this process easier, the BoatUS Trailering Club now offers a Wide-Load Permit Service in partnership with Mercury Permit Services.

We Can Be Sisters to Mothers We've Never Met



Connie Schultz

Surely, you and I can agree on this: No child in America deserves to live in poverty. Yet a record number of children in this country -- experts say nearly 25 percent -- will not have enough to eat or a place to call home at some point this year. We know this is wrong. We also know how to help -- even if we don't yet realize it.

The Informationist By Taylor Stevens



The Informationist
When a confirmed abhorrer of female authors and protagonists admits that he read and enjoyed the entire book The Informationist, one just knows that it has to be good. Taylor Stevens in her first novel has achieved the gripping story telling technique of many acclaimed authors. Like most novels, it started off slowly and gradually drew the reader into the depths of the story and the mystery. Her protagonist, Vanessa ‘Michael’ Munroe is not only believable, but brings mystery to an interesting turn of events.

Mayor and Council Meeting 3-8-11

As a matter of fact, I lost a wager with my associates of the fourth estate as to when the actual start of the meeting would take place. We had hunkered down figuring the budget problem would consume too much time. It did consume a lot of time for Councilman Alan Brundage who delivered the up to the minute budget results.
