They couldn't bring them to the shelter or into Corraddo's. They should be put in the trash whoeverRead More they are.

Mr. Ricciardella deserves his accolades. One question about this story: If the other man who jumpedRead More to his death has not yet been identified, how does Patch know his age?
JeffO April 16, 2014 at 04:24 pm
I guess someone knows his identity, just not the public.
Declan Harrison April 15, 2014 at 06:57 pm
#Whoisleadingus?? How does that video clip in any way bolster your original suggestion of makingRead More phones inoperable when in a car exceeding 10 mph? I think you've had another one of those impulsive thoughts.

I would say we ALL get it, there are just varying solutions for properly dealing with it.

Deputy Chief spot was eliminated years ago. Community Policing was eliminated a year ago. Some ofRead More the SROs were eliminated years ago.

The real news is that Mr. Betancur and the police were able to drive for a full hour on the GSPRead More without hitting a traffic jam.

The TMZ video I just watched showed what it looked like to be Ray Rice pulling his drunk fiance outRead More of an elevator. He may have been mad at her and had a fight with her but I doubt he had intent to severely harm her or I'm sure she would be in critical condition right now. I am not a football fan or a Ray Rice fan.... I'm just calling it like it is.

For the record, body parts were not randomly/individually flying around. Secondly, I think theRead More person responsible for the title of this article, should be reprimanded and owes this family an apology.

Every seen anybody hit by a high-speed express? Sure weren't train parts flying around.

As expected, no follow up from The Patch. I'd be fighting TOOTH AND NAIL to know fill my readers inRead More on what really happened.
Concerned Citizen April 7, 2014 at 09:54 am
BTW, not for nothin, but did anyone notice that the New Brunswick Patch header is a pic of a trainRead More bridge with the saying "New Brunswick, the healthcare city" just above the headline One Dead, Three Injured by Body Parts in New Brunswick Train Accident. OMG, they are just too funny.
William McCaw
Gordo K March 26, 2014 at 05:21 pm
Lousy reporting. No mention whatsoever as to how or why they've charged this guy.
FIMF the ll March 26, 2014 at 05:36 pm
From NBC news: Middlesex County prosecutors said Timothy Puskas, 38, is being charged with murderRead More for the death of William McCaw, a 22-year-old Kean University student who was found Feb. 15 outside a New Brunswick home. He died of blunt force trauma, authorities said. Prosecutors did not elaborate on what allegedly happened between Puskas and McCaw, but a spokesman said the preliminary investigation indicated they did not know each other.

Who does patch hire as "reporters"? I wish I knew what this guy was originally chargedRead More with? I wish I knew the first name of acting prosecutor Carey.... So many questions.

So "wyldthang" if YOU don't shop there, then why worry about what the store looks like? ARead More safety Risk? If this had happened at anyother super market would you classify them as a safety risk as well?? Did you stop going to shopping malls because they are a saftey risk as well? Would you stop going to NYC because of 9/11? Would you not fly on a plane because of hijackings or crashes?? Or do YOU just like to whine???
wyldthang18 March 26, 2014 at 10:58 am
I stopped going to this particular shoprite because the manager was an asshole, aside from the factRead More that this store is filthy. Why don't you go attack someone who really gives a damn. SPOS.
Kimberlee March 26, 2014 at 06:20 pm
Jessica, as the editor, have you given any thought to referring to the police or law enforcement asRead More just that in lieu of "cops"? It just sounds a bit more professional and respectful.

Hence, a public taker, and where did that get you?

First of all as a survivor of this for mr know it all NONE OF THE PEOPLE LIVING THERE WERE THERE ONRead More WELFARE THIS MOTEL WAS NOT AN APPROVED SPECIAL RESPONSE LOCATION we all paid out of our own money we worked and payed taxes with

Also the smoking lounge was located in the corner and was considered out side cause there was noRead More roof over that location but the fire spread way to quick for even me who was there and lived it to believe it was a cigarette

I am a volunteer firefighter in a wealthy Bergen county township, I have being volunteering for 5Read More years now and have training on the state and federal level. My town has a 100% volunteer fire department and a 100% ambulance corps. Each are very very dedicated, trained well, and are well respected throughout northern NJ for our services. However the biggest issue is man power during working times due to the fact we work jobs out of the area (I work at a hospital in central jersey). At any given time during the day you can have 2 guys show up to a call or 15, its hit or miss. Night time and weekends that's a different story because people are around. Same thing with our ambulance corps, they have a duty crew but if the duty crew is on a run when something else comes in during the day odds are another rig isn't getting out. Going 100% paid wont happen due to the fact that it would be too much money to pay to staff a fire truck and ambulance 24/7. However another option to look into is having a half paid half volunteer fire/ems department. You can have 2 FF/EMTS on a fire engine and a paid EMT driver on the ambulance during the day supplemented by volunteers. An example is if you have a Fire Alarm you already of a driver and FF on the Fire engine and now the first vollies come in you roll the truck 2-4 minutes faster due to the staffing at the fire house. Another example you now have an EMS ca,ll ambulance goes along with a fire engine with its FF/EMTS on it so now you have 3 EMTS on scene ( 2 from the fire truck 1 from the ambulance) and the vollies can also respond to help package and transport the patient. I feel that most of the state will never be paid but with the growing population in the state and the lack of volunteering in the emergency services I can see a half volunteer half paid happen. But this is just my opinion for my own town....Cheers

Albert, there's a million ways to accomplish this "problem" being cost effective, but manyRead More politicians are afraid to go up against the "institution"
Lucretia B March 29, 2014 at 10:48 pm
I'd like to see volunteer firefighters and first aid squads be required to get the training it takesRead More to be a professional while on call. I know of one first aid squad who make the ride to the hospital something like a "family affair", and believe me, if youre the patient lying in the back of that truck in pain....then all you need is a bunch of conversation between two teenage girls. But yeah.....I think towns should pay for these things.
grace March 26, 2014 at 07:16 pm
@wwe wouldnt it be nice if we could respond directly under the post we want to comment on? ah theRead More good ole days

Sorry Happy not part of the "klan". Just a tired tax payer whom is not part of theRead More political round table of Ocean County but saw it closer than most. The case of the child killed was transferred because the parents of the kid that was killed got a good lawyer and new what had to be done to get the case out of ocean county to get justice. lastly, people died and were severely injured here in this point tragedy and if it were your family members i hope that you would want me putting my two cents in.... Oh and "FTR" one of the victims family members know I am doing this and called and thanked me 4 times....
FIMF the ll March 23, 2014 at 02:52 pm
Just another reason that I am relieved to not be a family member.
Crystal Criispii Wardell March 30, 2014 at 05:14 pm
Well I was a victim and it was tragic and even worse that the owner of the motel who owns 4 othersRead More in the area is avoiding calls and has not even stepped up to offer rooms at his other motels for those that survived and lost everything. We paid cash every Week to his establishment and now because of his negligence to install working smoke alarms fire detectors or even for e extinguishers at that 4 people lost their lives and others lost everything they owned.
Thomas A. Blasi March 23, 2014 at 01:12 pm
Is it possable that the fire was caused by someone smoking in their room! Did anybody give this aRead More thought?

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't there a program in place in which parents can grant the schoolRead More permission to do random drug testing on their children? I am guessing 10 parents signed up for the program.
Jack Q March 24, 2014 at 09:59 am
There is a voluntary program in the high schools for sure.
raised in wayne March 24, 2014 at 04:55 pm
When my kids were in high school (last one graduated a couple years ago), I believe both the studentRead More and parent had to sign for random testing. I would have certainly agreed to random testing and drug sniffing dogs for all!
