70 Years Ago, Camden Man Became Nation's First Mass Murderer

His name, like the names of his victims, is nearly forgotten. 

But what Howard Unruh did 70 years ago today in Camden, N.J. foreshadowed the insanity of mass shootings we live with today.

Insanity is the operative word here. From lockdown drills in nursery schools to bullet resistant backpacks, random mass shootings have become part of the “uniquely American” cultural ...

A Day When the Sea Was More Hostile Than the Wind or Sun

The boy struggled with a cart filled with beach stuff as he dragged it down the boardwalk. It was fish-tailing behind him and I almost told him to push rather than pull, but decided to mind my own business. I was pushing a small load myself, my sleeping grandson in a stroller.

He was with a girl a few years younger, a woman who looked to be a grandmother, and several small children. His role ...

Agency officials attribute the significant increase in engineer training ...

Building Goodwill with Gratitude on NJ TRANSIT

NJ TRANSIT’s Customer Advocate and Chief Experience Officer Stewart Mader regularly rides buses, light rail, and trains to engage with customers and identify ways to streamline the  customer experience. 

This week, he rode with customers on the Montclair-Boonton Line to thank them for adjusting their schedules during Amtrak infrastructure work at New York Penn Station. That ...

Thank You, Montclair-Boonton, North Jersey Coast Line & Morris & Essex Line Riders

This spring we announced that Amtrak would need to take two tracks out of service at Penn Station New York this summer to accommodate critical infrastructure repair work. As a result, on weekdays only, four peak-period Midtown Direct trains in each direction on the Montclair-Boonton Line, one peak-period train in each direction on the North Jersey Coast Line and select reverse-peak trains on the ...

Following Montclair Planning Bd. Official's Accusation of Improper Actions, Township Leaders Involve the Essex County Prosecutor

September 13, 2019

MONTCLAIR, NJ – Montclair Planning Board member Martin Schwartz took a jab at township officials during the meeting on Tuesday night, criticizing them for "improper actions" and dropping the ball, which resulted in an applicant potentially receiving more units per acre that what was intended in the redevelopment plan.

On Thursday, Township Officials responded, denying any ...

New Jersey Date Night: Autumn Apple Picking

September 14, 2019

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

When you date someone not from New Jersey they might ask why we’re known as the Garden State. Typically the answer can be found with one visit to a local farmer’s market, but if doubt persists all you have to do is take them to a New Jersey orchard. 

A beautiful fall afternoon becomes ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 18, 2019

TRENTON – Let’s pile on the idiots serving on the City Council, who still believe using anti-Semitic slurs is perfectly fine. Of course, these council members are getting slammed from all corners for their ignorance, stupidity, insensitivity (add other adjectives here). Let’s tell the story, again, for those who may not have seen the ...
