Every time I think the Patch cannot post something dumber than the previously dumb article, theRead More editor pulls a rabbit, this case rabbi, out of his bungalow with an article such as this. Keep up the good work Patch; you're sure to surpass Yahoo News as leader of dumb dumb articles.

The man, the accused, has not even been brought to trial yet, he has not been found guilty ofRead More anything, he has not been convicted. You know, that "small" matter of being innocent until proven guilty. It's entirely possible that he's innocent. However, these are very serious charges and I guess the judge ruled that he was an escape risk so the bail was set very high. He's been in jail for 2 years and he hasn't been convicted of anything. Can they speed up trial dates? There are no easy answers, especially when it comes to these very serious charges of terrorism.

Pam, how do you know that he firebombed the synagogue? He's accused, not convicted, not even triedRead More in a jury trial. Who knows, maybe one of the other conspirators pointed to an innocent man to get a plea deal? Or maybe the accused is indeed guilty as sin and should rot in jail. I'll admit that I don't know one way or the other but even the worst scum is innocent until proven guilty.

I wonder how many who commented on this use their phone to text and/or call others while driving??Read More It's sad that folks have to talk and/or text while driving without realizing they MAY ONE DAY cause a death to someone - sorry state of affairs! When I feel the need to call/text someone while driving, I pull over... it just seems like the right thing to do!

The one land- country road I travel on (on a daily basis) calls for 35 miles per hour speed limit.Read More As many travel this road to access the GSP and are just passing through my neighborhood they often get upset by this and 'tail gate' me.... sad! It just makes me drive slower to torment them!! We even have the cops who hide out, catching 'speeders' on this road... it still doesn't make folks slow down! Sorry state of affairs!

@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.

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 raising, 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 organization 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 organization 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. Doug Ziemba Jr President Holmdel Fire Co 1

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.

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

Albert, there's a million ways to accomplish this "problem" being cost effective, but manyRead More politicians are afraid to go up against the "institution"

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.
