The Jaffe Briefing - March 18, 2019

TRENTON - The state is going to the dogs, which apparently have a terrific lobbyist in Trenton. Somehow, Fido, Rover and other four-legged friends have convinced lawmakers in the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee to support a bill that would limit the number of dogs euthanized after they attack.  NJ 101.5 reports that the legislation would only allow dogs who are ...

The Jaffe Briefing - March 15, 2019

STATEWIDE - Well, this changes everything. Apparently, we now have the go-ahead to give the middle finger to cops who routinely pull us over. A federal appeals court has ruled a Michigan woman's constitutional rights were violated when she gave the Jersey salute to a cop in 2017. At first, the officer gave her a ticket for a lesser offense. But then she gave him the finger, prompting him ...

The Jaffe Briefing - March 14, 2019

CAMDEN - It was in 1997 when City Clerk Luis Pastoriza took a second jobas the registrar of vital statistics. And now he thinks it's about damn time he gets paid. Pastoriza is demanding to plead his case to a jury, claiming in a lawsuit that he has been flatly denied compensation for those 22 years of extra labor, reports TAPInto Camden. Not only that, ...

The Jaffe Briefing - March 13, 2019

TRENTON - Fixing what ain't broke remains a favorite pastime of our stateLegislature, with some senators trying to ram through legislation tomorrow that would allow public schools to operate public child care centers for babies as young as six weeks old. Huh? Such a bill would require taxpayers to drop millions into old, under-used school buildings so they can ...

The Jaffe Briefing - March 12, 2019

STATEWIDE - Gun owners are furious that Gov. Phil Murphy is proposing$9 million more in gun fees and taxes, noting it now costs less to get a handgun permit than a dog license in New Jersey.  The more the opposition complains about the bill, the more it seems like an absolutely terrific idea. Case in point: opponents say the increases would make gun ownership too expensive for ...

The Jaffe Briefing - March 11, 2019

STATEWIDE - Hey, did you hear this one: "A minister, a rabbi and an imam pull into a parking lot... and they are all taxed."  It's no joke, contends NJ.com, which reports the new Trump tax rules regard free parking at houses of worship to be a taxable benefit for employees. The law slaps a 21 percent tax on fringe benefits at houses of worship for designated ...

For Parents Like Me, Pot Legalization in New Jersey is a Dilemma

I like Gov. Phil Murphy, but he's making a liar out of me. Me and millions of parents. For a couple of generations now, mothers and fathers have been warning children about the dangers of pot smoking. Now the governor comes along and tells them there is no Santa Claus.

I’ve been warning my children about pot for 20 years. That’s not exaggeration. It started when my ...

From a Backyard in Elizabeth, Chatham Man Shoots for the Stars

Luis Da Silva, Jr., says he got his start in a “two by four” backyard in Elizabeth, where he would spend hours with just a basketball.

In those lonely hours of dribbling and inventing basketball tricks, Da Silva learned to command the giant orange orb ...

March 17, 2019

Opening a new restaurant is rarely an easy task, and for Fettle + Fare owner Amanda Vargas, who has multiple sclerosis and is legally blind, the journey to create her shop in Westfield, NJ, was extra challenging. 

It was here that she created a space that is more to her than a place to find tasty, nutritious food. It’s a symbol of growth and helping others ...
