The Jaffe Briefing - October 14, 2019

STATEWIDE – It’s been another weekend of yelling at those damn referees,whether on a high school, college or pro football field. So, yeah, they are all blind, deaf, asleep and have zero clue of the rules of the game. But let’s forget all that today, for this fleeting moment, as we kick off the beginning of the state’s first-ever “Officials’ Appreciation ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 11, 2019

THE STICKS - You often hear those unfair jokes about those who reside in the farthest reaches of Sussex County – a terrain that could be the ugly stepchild of the backwaters of Mississippi and the foothills of West Virginia. Now the people there can’t be backward, right? Nah. Except for a 31-year-old Vernon man, accused of sending letters to local farmers, seeking permission ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 10, 2019

STATEWIDE – When the media mentions “tax policy,” most readers quickly turn to a story about a kitten lost in the basement. But the fact that we are in a higher tax bracket than our 400 or so billionaires should earn some fleeting attention. The Star-Ledger notes that our mega-wealthy were paying a 70 percent income tax rate in the 1970s. Every since, rates have steadily ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 8, 2019

ASBURY PARK – Assume there are many residents of this liberal seashore enclave who have been enjoying some politically-tinged lawn signs that one resident continually places on his Third Avenue property – slamming President Trump with an ongoing stream of slogans. There have been plenty of colorful descriptions, like “unhinged,” “psychotic,” ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 7, 2019

EAST RUTHERFORD – One would think that NJ Transit would be eager to reduce the anticipated swell of road traffic going to the American Dream mall. After all, the whole goal of a rail and bus agency is to reduce the number of motorists jamming up our roads. Yet, NJ Transit wants to slap a surcharge on people taking a bus from Manhattan to the soon-to-open mega-mall. NJTV says its costs ...

The Jaffe Briefing - October 4, 2019

ATLANTIC CITY – From political bosses like “Commodore” Kuehnle and “Nucky” Johnson, to mayors like Richard Jackson and William Somers, to commissioners like Arthur Ponzio, Atlantic City has had more than its share of less-than-ethical public officials who’ve skirted the law. So, welcome to that club Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr., who admitted stealing $87,000 ...

The Glass You Choose Could Make That Wine Taste so Fine

October 9, 2019

The wine was very fine, but it was the glasses from which patrons sipped that were the main show at Ventanas in Fort Lee recently.

About 100 diners swirled, sniffed and sipped wines for about an hour while learning which wine glasses are best for what varieties and why.

“The rim diameter actually focuses the flow of the wine on your palate,” said Julio Ruix, regional sales ...
