    A man on vacation in Ocean City, New Jersey captured incredible video of a raccoon scaling the side of a building and climbing several stories. Micha Rea, a South Carolina resident, was walking the boardwalk with friends when he says they spotted the raccoon roughly nine stories up on the side of a building. Rea broke out his camera and started recording. He films the raccoon holding onto the wall of an apartment complex, before showing the group of people who had gathered, including animal control. By the time the camera turns back to the raccoon, the critter has decided...

    Laura B. Palmese, 38, and Jon P. Stevens, 48, both of Connecticut, swam to the USS Ling, which is moored in the Hackensack River, after leaving their car at a nearby diner, city police said in a statement Thursday. The duo allegedly stole a lantern and a medical corps lieutenant's shoulder lapel from the historic former Navy vessel on Aug. 11. Palmese has worked as a member of Thames Society of Paranormal Investigations, a Connecticut-based team of ghost hunters who seek out the supernatural around the region. "Our mission is to research, investigate, educate and provide assistance to those who...
  • What makes Cory Booker's groping incident different than the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh

    As Washington continues to play a game of wait and see on whether Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, will testify in Washington next week, an old-but-new-again incident involving a prominent Democratic senator -- and potential 2020 challenger to Trump -- has reemerged. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker wrote in the early 1990s -- while a student at Stanford -- about an incident on New Year's Eve 1984 (when he was 15) in which he groped a female friend's breast after the two of them had kissed. "With the 'Top Gun' slogan...

    UPDATE: Saudino has apologized for the remarks but did not resign Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday that Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino should immediately resign if, in fact, he was caught on tape making racist remarks about African-Americans and New Jersey's Sikh attorney general. According to a report from WNYC, which said the station was provided with the recording, Saudino is heard talking to colleagues on the day Murphy was inaugurated. Saudino, recounting the details of Murphy's Jan. 16 inaugural address, said: "He talked about the whole thing, the marijuana, sanctuary state ... better criminal justice reform. Christ almighty, in...
  • Cory Booker Stunner: 17-Year Olds Too Immature to Be Held Accountable for Actions

    New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has a very interesting view of Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged actions. You might even call this a “Spartacus” moment for the Senator, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. As the world knows, Judge Kavanaugh, 17 years old at the time, is being accused of assaulting a 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now Ford) when both were in high school. Blasey did not report the incident to authorities or apparently anyone else at the time. Thus, no charges were filed much less was Kavanaugh prosecuted. Again, if the charges are true — and there is zero evidence that...

    If you want fresh evidence that Donald Trump has turned American politics upside down, here it is: Former Gov. Christie Whitman, a lifelong Republican, is so appalled by him that she wants Democrats to take over the House. "I'm hoping we lose the House, that would be a good thing," she said Friday. "Congress could stand up to him and could be dialing back a lot of this. They have ceded too much to this president." But be careful, she says. Don't kill the moderate Republicans, they are the ones who can help steer the country back to safe ground....

    Akbar Cook, principal of West Side High School in Newark, sat across from Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Friday, and couldn’t believe he was there. “I’m just so happy, I’m so nervous that I’m on the Ellen Show," he said, smiling, his hands fidgeting. “This is amazing. Wow." It’s understandable, Cook. She’s big, but you have done something special to earn the right to be there, too. I wrote a column about Cook last month because he had washing machines installed at his school this summer to deter bullying and embarrassment for his students, who didn’t want anyone to...

    Jersey voters, take note. There's a big change in the state's voting laws that you'll need to pay attention to under a measure signed by Gov. Phil Murphy designed to expand voter participation. Critics say the new law is sparking voter confusion. And county clerks say it's forced them to scramble to comb voting rolls to meet its requirements on short notice. The big change is about mail-in ballots. You have always had the option of mailing in your ballot. You could get a ballot if you applied for one by the deadline, then mailed it in or dropped it...

    You're headed down the road in your car and a kid, on a bike, heads straight for you and pops a wheelie right next to your car, or near a parked car. It's dangerous and it's a fad that just won't die in New Jersey, police say. The stunts are called "swerving" -- or intentionally biking in the path of vehicles while performing tricks. Sometimes, large groups of teens will do this together, just to confound traffic. In response, N.J. towns have taken to local Facebook groups and public forums to air concerns about this dangerous practice, and local police...

According to Johnson, 2018-19 will be the first year that the district has at least one "all-gender" restroom in each school building.

    Lisa Lebowitz was sitting in a delayed NJ Transit train departing Hoboken one recent Monday evening when she overheard an exasperated passenger complain about the frequency of last-minute cancellations. “Don’t worry,” Ms. Lebowitz recalled a crew member telling the passenger. “You should be good tomorrow because we take off Mondays and Fridays.” NJ Transit has been forced to cancel hundreds of trains this summer resulting from shortages of railcars, locomotives and workers. But it has also had to cancel trains because of last-minute calls from train operators saying they are sick or need time off for family or medical reasons,...

    Once upon a time, Corey Anthony Booker seemed like “a statesman.” As mayor of Newark, New Jersey, he talked to everybody, made deals, comported himself with dignity. He stood out from the pack; he was seen as an up-and-comer. Yet move him to the Senate and place him in front of national cameras? He has become something of a loon. “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” he said, referring to his leakage of confidential information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Michael Kavanaugh during this week’s hearings. Say what?...

    I love Lindsay Graham. The witty South Carolina senator, who's usually more entertaining than most comedians, has been one of the highlights of the otherwise depressing televised Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Graham put it perfectly Thursday morning. He said some people had been coming up to him and asking if this week's ugly display of disruptions, rude moronic outbursts from the gallery and Democrat grandstanding had become a circus. "I'm here to defend circuses," Graham said, pointing out that it was safe for parents to take their kids to the circus but not to...
