I want to thank my family, friends, the Goldberg Team and everyone who made calls, walked with me, attended functions and mostly voted for me. I lost but I won. I won because I was able to meet so many new residents in our ...

Gov. Murphy Unveils Ethics Reforms During Visit to Rutgers

February 20, 2020

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Gov. Phil Murphy said he and his staff have been practically building a shrine around a fine bottle of bourbon he received as a gift.

Here's the sobering truth, though: Murphy and his fellow executive branch employees are exempt by state law from taking one drop, let alone accepting any gifts that are related to their public duties.

Love Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

Every sappy romantic can recall that moment in the movie, Love Story, when, after an argument, Oliver told Jenny he was sorry and through her tears she quivered and replied, “Don’t … love means never having to say you’re sorry”.

Anyone who has ever been in a loving relationship understands the point of that statement – unconditional love doesn’t ...

The Heart of a Friendship

To have a friend and be a friend is what makes life worthwhile. ~Unknown

February is the month of the heart, the time when we celebrate love. We buy chocolate, flowers, jewelry, and greeting cards to profess our undying love to that special someone.

Turning 20 means they have run out of youthful brand names. After spending a lifetime transitioning from infants to toddlers to kids to tweens to teens ...

February 19, 2020

NEW JERSEY -- Paul Shaffer is widely known as the former Musical Director of both Late Night with David Letterman and The Late Show with David Letterman, during which he was often involved in skits and the general hijinx of the production.
