What is a Wasp

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. 

You may be allergic to a particular insect, which means it's important to know the difference between them.

So what is a wasp? And how can you identify them? We'll discuss these ...

The Jaffe Briefing - August 3, 2021

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL – Welcome back to the stage, former Sen. Diana Allen. The moderate Republican from South Jersey is making a comeback, as the running mate for GOP gubernatorial hopeful Jack Ciattarelli. Allen is to be rolled out tomorrow as the candidate for lieutenant governor, with as much hoopla as possible. Allen is a good pick, a veteran news anchor from Philly who knows how to ...

RIDGEWOOD – Plenty of drama surrounds this village’s new parking garage. Yes, seriously, the Record reports. The first issue: no one can find the Hudson Street garage, despite the fact the four-story, 240-space structure is one of the tallest in the downtown. The $12 million structure is tucked behind retail buildings on East Ridgewood Avenue and could really use ...

TRENTON – So, yeah, masks are now “strongly recommended” indoors where there are crowds, says Gov. Phil Murphy, following the latest federal guidance. While this is a sensible request, as the COVID numbers rise in the state, not everyone is on board. Just ask super-conservative Sen. Michael Doherty, who dashed off a press release saying: “The Murphy administration ...

But it may take some time for all to gel. Will we really start saying stuff like, “Hey, hit me up for some nuts at the James Gandolfini" (service area in Montvale.)? Or "do they ...

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 ...

Quitting Can Be Winning

July 30, 2021

I will begin by quoting a recent Instagram message by Justin Bieber.

“Nobody will ever understand the pressures you face! I know we don’t know each other but I’m so proud of the decision to withdraw.  It’s as simple as – what does it mean to gain the whole world but forfeit your soul. Sometimes our no’s are more powerful than our yes’s.  ...
