Why is this placed at someone else's door? Where is personal responsibility? SOme people grow up inRead More crappy families, or have horrific pasts and don't succumb to a drug addiction. I really think part of the problem is not having a strong support system behind you and the glamorization of drugs in the entertainment media.

Lets hear it for the NJDOT.

Wow. This must have been kept quiet. I don't even remember this being originally reported. To me,Read More its just another sad story of infinite corruption for a corrupt County in the most Corrupt State in our Country. The News media should do a series or expose on that Prosecutor's Office in Essex, it would be an interesting timeline of the pattern of crimes committed in that Office from the people who are supposed to uphold the Law. Thanks for reporting this. Good article! NJ

Lousy reporting. No mention whatsoever as to how or why they've charged this guy.
FIMF the ll March 26, 2014 at 05:36 pm
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.

I am a volunteer firefighter in a wealthy Bergen county township, I have being volunteering for 5Read More years now and have training on the state and federal level. My town has a 100% volunteer fire department and a 100% ambulance corps. Each are very very dedicated, trained well, and are well respected throughout northern NJ for our services. However the biggest issue is man power during working times due to the fact we work jobs out of the area (I work at a hospital in central jersey). At any given time during the day you can have 2 guys show up to a call or 15, its hit or miss. Night time and weekends that's a different story because people are around. Same thing with our ambulance corps, they have a duty crew but if the duty crew is on a run when something else comes in during the day odds are another rig isn't getting out. Going 100% paid wont happen due to the fact that it would be too much money to pay to staff a fire truck and ambulance 24/7. However another option to look into is having a half paid half volunteer fire/ems department. You can have 2 FF/EMTS on a fire engine and a paid EMT driver on the ambulance during the day supplemented by volunteers. An example is if you have a Fire Alarm you already of a driver and FF on the Fire engine and now the first vollies come in you roll the truck 2-4 minutes faster due to the staffing at the fire house. Another example you now have an EMS ca,ll ambulance goes along with a fire engine with its FF/EMTS on it so now you have 3 EMTS on scene ( 2 from the fire truck 1 from the ambulance) and the vollies can also respond to help package and transport the patient. I feel that most of the state will never be paid but with the growing population in the state and the lack of volunteering in the emergency services I can see a half volunteer half paid happen. But this is just my opinion for my own town....Cheers

Lucretia B March 29, 2014 at 10:48 pm
I'd like to see volunteer firefighters and first aid squads be required to get the training it takesRead More to be a professional while on call. I know of one first aid squad who make the ride to the hospital something like a "family affair", and believe me, if youre the patient lying in the back of that truck in pain....then all you need is a bunch of conversation between two teenage girls. But yeah.....I think towns should pay for these things.

Sorry Happy not part of the "klan". Just a tired tax payer whom is not part of theRead More political round table of Ocean County but saw it closer than most. The case of the child killed was transferred because the parents of the kid that was killed got a good lawyer and new what had to be done to get the case out of ocean county to get justice. lastly, people died and were severely injured here in this point tragedy and if it were your family members i hope that you would want me putting my two cents in.... Oh and "FTR" one of the victims family members know I am doing this and called and thanked me 4 times....

Well I was a victim and it was tragic and even worse that the owner of the motel who owns 4 othersRead More in the area is avoiding calls and has not even stepped up to offer rooms at his other motels for those that survived and lost everything. We paid cash every Week to his establishment and now because of his negligence to install working smoke alarms fire detectors or even for e extinguishers at that 4 people lost their lives and others lost everything they owned.

I have been reading so many articles and commentaries not only here on the patch but many otherRead More venues regarding this tragedy. In my opinion this has really exposed many issues our politicians avoid. Everything from the immigration and national security. To the rights and responsibilities of all American citizens. I am not sure of any of the answers myself but as an ordinary citizen born and raised in America I fear for my and many other american children whom will be "forced" outright or subversively to live a very different life than I and many like you here on the "patch".
