I never said it was Whitmans' fault! I am aware that Florio didn't put the money in! But it wasRead MoreWhi tman that borrowed from the pension system, that money never to be seen again! Every other gov. since then repeated by not paying into system until this year when Gov. Christie actually made a payment!

Francesca, I certainly am not talking about the "worker bees" in the state govt. I knowRead Moreyo u are in same boat as teachers in regard to pensions and benefits. I am talking about the legislators, the aides of Christie; the ones already making far bigger bucks than either you or me. There was an article out a while back that listed many big honchos who were receiving very large pensions because they were retired, but they were allowed to also work in high paying govt jobs and receive a big salary for that ~at the same time!! Not us peons~~we are not allowed to double dip. But I haven't read or heard anything about Christie fixing that "glitch" as of yet! That really bugs me.

I give this new administration a B plus. They have made drug arrests, pursued tightening zoningRead Morelaws as related to schools and even picked up our neighbors' bags of brush without multiple phone calls. If they would repave North Cedarcroft and conduct a more timely leaf pickup, they would garner an A in my book. I hope they do, and feel they are off to a good running start. Also wondering if they have new plans for Windward Beach. I saw where the old jungle gym was dismantled and am guessing they may keep the children's activities up on the hilly area. Giving credit where due, I think this administration is an improvement over the lack of leadership we endured previously.

Yes, it's habit-forming! Please call TR Rec. Dept. and ask if they'll stripe more unused tennisRead Morecou rts for playing the nation's fastest-growing game, pickle ball. With only 1 outdoor court in TR & Brick, groups of 8 or more are reluctant to go there and wait their turn. Maybe TR Rec. would allow us to post names and playing sign-up times on a bulletin board.

BAN THE PTA TADFF Review: High School Posted by Courtney Small High School Henry (Matt Bush) is an Read Morehonour roll student who has always played by the rules. His pal Travis (Sean Marquette), on the other hand, is a stoner whose future is as cloudy as the marijuana he enhales. Travis convinces Henry to let loose and try some weed just one time. Unfortunately for the boys, they get high the night before the school principle, Gordon (Michael Chiklis), announces that he will be taken a harsh stance on drugs. On the day of the final exams, every student will have to take part in mandatory drug testing. Anyone student who fails the test will be immediately expelled. Fearing that his application to MIT is in jeopardy, Henry decides to go along with Travis’ crazy plan to get the whole school high via the PTA bake sale. If the whole school fails the drug screening than the results will be deemed inadmissible. In order to get enough drugs to affect the students and staff, Travis and Henry must steal some of the most potent marijuana on earth from a local drug dealer.

Why not go after the gas stations that sell glass pipes,paper,tiny roses in tiny glass vials, thatRead Morea re cracked open and used to smoke crack? I say its easier to watch when they are putting right out there. I think this establishment will have to do things above board. Now the gas stations in town that are selling paraphernalia to under age kids theres something to worry about.

So what did everyone think that taxes were going to go down? If you like all the services that weRead Moreh ave, you have to pay. One thing though is someone has to take a really hard look at the police and the Board of Education. We have way to much crime going on in the town now and I don't see anyone really addressing\it. Time for a MAJOR crackdown on all law breakers, no matter what the crime!!!
KC April 07, 2014 at 01:29 AM
What services, Jim? Apart from garbage collection I can think of none. Our town is in a deplorable Read Morestate, I would gladly pay higher taxes if we received any services, but we truly do not. Senior retirement developments get all the grease. Haven't had a road pave in thirty five years. The schools are decrepit and the weedy, garbage strewn byways a disgrace. We thought the low taxes were the trade off for allowing the fugly corporate box chains to destroy the fabric of our town. Let Walmart pay their fair share first! Then go after the wing it joints that do little to enhance anything.

The rec dept. can simply paint lines for Pickle Ball courts on some existing tennis courts. I seeRead Morel ots of unused courts in Brick. Cheap... quick... instant fun for many residents who are looking for an easy-to-learn game that can be played in 15 minutes or so by men, women and children. How about it?
