Another young life on the wrong path. Wouldn't be suprised if it was the drug epidemic at the root.Read More We all need to aggressively fight this war on drugs-especially the heroin surge in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

From the article: One person currently stuck in the broken system is Aakash Dalal, a former RutgersRead More student who is being held in Bergen County Jail on $4 million bail for his role in firebombing a synagogue 2 years ago. He's being accused of bombing ONE synagogue not 4 as some commenters are saying. Bombing one synagogue is a horrible crime and act of terrorism but let's at least get our facts right.

Eric Rudolph was a racist, anti-semetic, militant, twisted religious zealout, murdering psycopath,Read More not a "right wing fanatic." He was absent political bent.

Speedy trial? Define speedy. Charles Manson and company committed the Tate/LaBianca murders inRead More 1969. The trial wasn’t until two years later. It took over a year before Jack Ruby went on trial for shooting Oswald. And the entire nation saw him do that on TV. The infamous Boston Strangler was caught in early 1964 but wasn’t sentenced until 1967. Its only on Law & Order that it goes from commission of the crime to sentencing in an hour.

Louise, by all means drive at the speed limit, but driving deliberately slower just to torment otherRead More drivers will one day backfire on you. There are some unhinged people out there, and even relatively normal people once behind the wheel of a car can turn into Mr. Hyde. As a female, you are seriously setting yourself up for a bad outcome. If you can, let them pass. There's a slim chance that they will get a speeding ticket.
DAS April 18, 2014 at 12:38 pm
Why would you drive slower just to piss people off, haven't you read of people getting killed fromRead More road rage? By going slower, you are just as much a danger to other drivers as the ones texting and talking, you can get a ticket for driving too much under the speed limit, for hindering traffic....sorry state of affairs indeed!

So it is quite evident, at least so it seems this guy is a worthless piece of crap sexual predator.Read More Lock him up and throw away the key. Why is he being given bail? He is a self proclaimed pedophile, he should never see the light of day again. Why subject some helpless child to this sick pervert? Throw him in general population in any state prison and let everyone know what he is and what he's done. Swift jail justice will prevail, end of problem.

@John...now I understand what u were stating. Thank you for elaborating. I too get a bit frustratedRead More at the way they chose to word things in the stories they write. However, I do find it quite humorous to read some of the comments made n how upset n defensive some of the ppl get.

I'm not a Holmdel resident , but feel this makes no sense to me . Removing rigs and moving themRead More down the block ?
Justmeasking April 12, 2014 at 05:12 pm
Unfortunately there is no easy way to go about a decision like this. I can only hope and pray thatRead More this decision was not "politically" motivated. After 97 years of service to it's community, the fire company has had to have made a positive impact to the residents of the company's response area. Consolidation, duty crews and ultimately (if required) paid firefighters are the way of the future. I am quite sure this decision has fallen hard on the company's members both active and life. Even though i am not a resident of Holmdel i wish to extend heartfelt thanks to the men and women who gave so much of their lives to the fire company and the residents of Holmdel. I hope this works out well for the residents that this decision impacts.

The recently closed firehouse at 35 West Main St is privately owned by HFC1 and is not a townshipRead More building. No tax dollars go into the electric bill, septic, dumpster, maintenance, or other expenses of the building. The town does not even snow plow our parking lot, the volunteers take additional time from their days to clean off the driveway. Our building was built by the members and volunteers of Holmdel. HFC1 is funded through donations, fund faising, and hall rentals. A building DONATED by Vonage to garage a fire engine 100 yards away from the FREE building that the town stored two fire engines in until Thursday only helps two people; Vonage's tax liability, and The Holmdel Township committee in their vision to control every orginazation within the town. Although Vonage may love having a firehouse on their property, the ones who will suffer are the local residents on the south side of Holmdel. Any volunteer orginazation is strong from 6p-6a when the "new" firehouse will be staffed. Volunteer firefighters, because they are not paid, most likely have some type of job during the day. I hope that the residents of Holmdel are aware that this "new" firehouse was a firehouse from the 80's until about 5 years ago when Holmdel "consolidated" and converted the firehouse into an OEM facility, leaving Holmdel with 2 firehouses from the previous 3. Close a firehouse 5 years ago to gain trust from residents in a consolidation only to reopen it as "new" and gain more trust. Although Holmdel Fire Co No 1 is currently closed, we are not gone and hope to someday soon return to active service to serve the residents, supporters, and tax payers of Holmdel.

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.

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.

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.

Lousy reporting. No mention whatsoever as to how or why they've charged this guy.

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.
