Recent headlines announcing Hess Corporation's exit from the energy marketing and refining end of its global business will not affect what is perhaps its second-most-coveted consumer item after the petrol: the Hess Toy Truck.

Since 1964, Hess Corporation has sold its classic toy trucks; offering a variety of collectible miniature trucks to consumers at the start of the holiday season each year in November. Despite the corporation's impending closure of its 1,350 retail gas stations, consumers will still be able to find the eclectic toys at Hess …

The Woodbridge-based oil business will now divest itself of 1,350 gas stations, many of which operate in New Jersey and 17 other Eastern Seaboard states.
The familiar green and white Hess signs that dot the Woodbridge landscape and much of New Jersey may soon be no more.

Amato is determined to do as much as possible to speed up state approval of Berkeley's Town Center plan, a portion of the township's massive redevelopment plan. He has invited Lt. Gov. Kim …
