The Jaffe Briefing - January 17, 2020

ATLANTIC CITY - Hard Rock International has already invested $562 million to completely overhaul the former Trump hotel. And yesterday, in pledging another $15 million in investment - the Hard Rock CEO had one request to Atlantic City: Can you fix the damn traffic lights? The CEO complained that traffic lights have been out for two months on several blocks of Pacific Avenue, ...

The Jaffe Briefing - January 16, 2020

TRENTON – With word that New Jersey will soon be the only state with a guaranteed severance-pay law, there’s plenty of mixed emotion. No doubt, it’s a great win for workers at companies with more than 100 full-time employees, who would get severance if there was a mass layoff of at least 50 workers. But one would also assume such companies are financially destitute, like ...

TRENTON – As the great philosopher Kermit the Frog once said, “It’s not easy being green.” To be accurate, the famously contemplative amphibian didn’t speak the words; rather, he warbled them. But what do you do for a second act when you’ve already been dubbed the “greenest governor in America”? That’s what some conservationists have ...

Poll after poll shows that we are all sick and tired of politicians who want to spend us out of our problems. Yet, the governor will be center stage today, at his annual “State of the State” address, talking about the need to raise taxes on the rich, as well as the sales tax, ...

TRENTON – You’ve already poured your favorite beverage, filled a big bucket of popcorn and hunkered down in your best chair. No, this has nothing to do with tonight’s college football national championship. We’re talking about real excitement: Gov. Phil Murphy’s State of the State Address tomorrow. All – or at least some of us – wonder what ...

The Jaffe Briefing - January 10, 2020

TRENTON – New Jersey’s lame-duck legislative session, now in its very last days, is delivering all sorts of drama — for political nerds like us, that is. It’s got it all: Protests. Deals. Deals gone kaput. Swerves, feints and backtracking. Let’s add to the list of down-to-the-wire items a statewide ban on single-use bags that may yet make it to the ...

New Jersey Date Night: Lettuce Eat Salad

January 12, 2020

New Jersey Date Night is a series on NJ Flavor by relationship writer Craig Rogers.

The days following the holiday season can be rather heavy — we’re heavy hearted that the celebrations are all over and heavier in the waistline from enjoying every last bite of the festivities. 

In New Jersey it’s difficult to say no to tasty treats like Christmas ...
