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 ...

NJ TRANSIT Graduating Seven Locomotive Engineer Classes in Two Years – Same Number Graduated in Last Five Years Combined

With the recent June 2019 graduating class and six more classes of locomotive engineering trainees graduating through December 2020, NJ TRANSIT will have graduated seven classes in two years (2019 – 2020). That’s the same number of classes that graduated in the previous five years combined (2014 – 2018.)

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 ...

LifeTown was built by Friendship Circle founders Rabbi Zalman and Toba Grossbaum to help individuals with disabilities to experience inclusion while mastering life ...

Newark’s Water Crisis is As Much about Lack of Vision and Courage As It Is About Mismanagement and Malfeasance

August 19, 2019

Everyone knows it has always been a coveted desire to privatize Newark’s Water Department. The money such an agency would generate would be massive and would invite corruption. If you don’t believe me just look at what happened under the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation.

In 2013, an investigation by a State Comptroller revealed that there was ramped ...

The Jaffe Briefing - September 16, 2019

CLIFTON – It’s a sad morning, with no gum-cracking waitress calling us “hon” or warming up our coffee for the 8th time. Why? Because for likely the first Monday morning since the Truman Administration, the Tick Tock Diner is not slinging eggs and bacon on the side of Route 3. The landmark diner was set to close last night for a major rehab. There will be a new ...
