Every year, around 62 people die from hornet, wasp, or bee stings. These creatures may be little, but they can be very dangerous if you or someone you know has an allergy.

The Jaffe Briefing - July 27, 2021

STATEWIDE – Even the Washington Post now realizes New Jersey’s awkward relationship with the feds. The Garden State famously gives more tax dollars to Uncle Sam than it can ever dream of getting back in financial aid, infrastructure and other goodies. (In fiscal 2018, New Jersey received less back on every federal tax dollar paid ...

ROSELLE PARK – The story of a local woman with vulgar anti-Biden signs appeared to be over after a municipal court judge sided with basic logic and decency, ordering her to remove them from her fence. But now the ACLU is involved, for some reason, representing the resident in this senseless legal battle that has grabbed the attention of CNN. Mayor Joseph ...

DOWN THE SHORE – Sure, you can stay in an overpriced seaside motel that hasn’t been updated since the waning days of the Carter Administration. But, for the same cash – about $250 a night – you can sleep on a yacht. NJ 101.5 reports that Airbnb has a summer listing for a big boat that sleeps five and features three bathrooms. It’s yours with a two-night minimum and ...

LIVINGSTON – Damn straight. That’s the best response one can give to word that RWJ Barnabas has gone as far as to fire six health care supervisors who refused to get the COVID vaccine, after numerous warnings. Not to sound like a hard ass here, but good riddance. Even better: the mega hospital chain is vowing to expand the vaccine mandate to “all staff and physicians,” ...

The Jaffe Briefing - July 19, 2021

ROSELLE PARK – We all have our rights, but let’s assume the Founding Fathers also assumed we have at least some common sense. That’s unlike a Roselle Park woman who thought it makes perfect sense to plaster large  “Fuck Biden” signs on her wooden fence, for all the kiddies walking to school to see. The woman’s lawyer, in arguing this ridiculous case last ...

July 24, 2021

NEW JERSEY — For many who call the Garden State home, summer tastes like the first bite of a ripe, juicy Jersey tomato plucked fresh from a roadside farm stand or local farmers market.
