I, for one, think that the idiots are out in full force today. The comments here are despicable!Read MoreYou all to seem to know too much, but really know TOO LITTLE. Some of you also need to go back to school and learn how to write. Bonnie Slocum and John Cobb, who are the only two to use their actual names interestingly enough, are the voices of reason. The rest of you seem to have way too much "knowledge" of the attendance rates of the various departments in the district and the safety records of individual drivers. You are terrible people who are saying awful things and using words like "pimp". How educated are you people? I just did some research: In total, 27 drivers have 26 children that are in or have graduated from Central Regional schools... and nearly all of these drivers live in our sending districts. Our BOE is putting the parents and grandparents of its students out of work, parents and grandparents who are taxpayers in the district. They prefer to bring people in from outside.....for HOW MUCH CHEAPER? We can use "choice money" and extra funds for turf and track and tennis court resurfacing, etc., but we can't pay pennies to keep our own loyal drivers at the helms of the buses of our own children ride? There is something very wrong with this picture. I would like the names of those who voted YES to put these men and women out of work made public. I hope the entire CREA, parents, and students past and present turn out on the night of April 24th to protest cutting the jobs of these men and women. I don't want outsiders coming into our school district and sitting in their seats over PENNIES. Cut out an administrator or two, and you'll be able to afford the whole entire transportation department. These men and women do a great job and have done great jobs, some of them for years, only to be turned out into the cold. I think not. This was a very bad move, Dr. Parlapanides, Mr. O'Shea and those blind members of the BOE who follow along after them. I'd like to know when the votes are in, if those drivers are fired, which Board of Education members voted to show them the door.

I'm just curious as to the current status of Sente. I assume he's out on bail, but does he stillRead Moreope rate in the home improvement field?

The Tea Party bloggers are coming out from under their rocks. They must have received their checks Read Morefrom the Koch Brothers.

Morty dear, Republicans work for what they have - they don't accept checks from anyone forRead Moreanything . I realize the word, 'WORK' is probably a foreign concept to you, but Republicans don't need or accept handouts. Democrats are those cashing in on the food stamps, housing, free cell phones, etc. As to the content of this article - the NJ Secretary of State is responsible; did I mention the NJ Secretary of State is a Democrat?

Get in your car and drive over to any one of the Ocean County Freeholder's offices. There isRead Morealways one Freeholder on staff. Once in the office, produce any proof, documentation, people's names, dates, etc., and let it rip.

wow @ jersey tomato i would love to watch that!

Spend some time snooping around the neighborhood where you intend to buy. Take notice of theRead Morecomings and goings, carloads of young men riding around may be a warning flag. Is the neighborhood mixed ethnically or is it mostly non-white? If it is the area will surely slide downhill, like Willingboro, NJ did.

Last I heard, license plate readers were going to be mounted on poles in this area.

Went here for the first time today and had a wonderful experience. I had a turkey club, and myRead Moreboyfr iend got a steak. Food was excellent. you could really tell everything was homemade and fresh.On top of the great food our service was great , everyone working there was so friendly. I am so happy I found Kokomo's!

We had breakfast there this morning--excellent! Friendly staff and quick service. The menu has some Read Moreunique items, and the food was delicious and generous portions. We will definitely go again. We had been to the previous restaurant, which was so-so at best; hopefully Kokomos can break the 'curse' of that building and succeed. Looking forward to visiting again.

WHile this is great news, it makes me wonder about the people who tore down their homes or tookRead Moredras tic measures to raise them because of the scare tactics about how much it will cost to pay for insurance. How many people fled their damaged homes because the could not afford to raise them or rebuild, keeping in mind they would not be able to afford flood insurance if they did nothing.

This is so true and the thing is we are all guilty of this at one time or another. Its in ourRead Morenature , we might have been created equal but still far from perfect. Thank you for the prospective change. anonymous

The legislation, passed 72-22 by the Senate today and 306-91 last week by the House, limits yearlyRead Morep remium increases to an average of 15% per year, and stipulates that no individual policyholder pay an increase of more than 18% per year. It calls on FEMA to "strive" to reach the goal that most policyholders have a premium of no more than 1% of the value of their coverage -- in other words, $2,000 for a $200,000 policy. The bill also reinstates the flood insurance program's grandfathering provision, meaning homes that complied with previous flood maps would not be hit with large increases when new maps show greater risk of flooding. It also ends a provision that required an immediate hike to actuarial levels when a home changes ownership -- slowing home sales in many communities designated high-risk by FEMA flood maps. - StopFemaNow.com and Facebook.com/StopFemaNow

Maybe all the little old people and the HOA's shouldn't have complained about the pump house whichRead Morew as to be build. To appease all the malcontents, the pump station is now beautiful and about a mile further down the road (an additional expenses). We all had to pay for this, was it fair to me that your whining cost me extra $? NO. You fought, you won (actually lost) and this is what you cost ALL of us including the undeserving.
