Federal, state, county and local officials gathered in Colts Neck on Friday for the ground breaking of the long awaited improvements to the intersection of State Route 34 and County Route 537. The project is designed to ease traffic congestion at the crossroad that is traveled by 37,000 motorists daily and to reduce the use of local roads by the thousands of motorists using alternate routes.

Gore is scheduled to appear at the Ocean Township Community Gym on Sunday, October 15 from 3 P.M till 5 P.M.
When last we heard of the inventor of the Internet and Global Warming campaigning in Monmouth County, he was embroiled in the “Crazed Sex Poodle” scandal. Six years before NBC leaked the Access Hollywood tapes featuring Donald Trump and Billy Bush joking about grabbing pussies, Portland Oregon massage therapist Molly Hagerty accused Gore of groping her and painfully squeezing her nipples over her clothes after she declined to rub his adductor magnus.

It is Friday in Lakewood. A few thousand young men in black suits and wide-brimmed black hats are rushing toward Beth Medrash Govoha (BMG), the world’s largest yeshiva outside of Israel. Parking in the vicinity of the school is as impossible as finding a spot in Hoboken or Jersey City. Students circle in their Toyotas, Nissans… Read the rest of this entry »Posted: May 8th, 2017 | Author: admin | Filed under: New Jersey | Tags: Jersey Shore, Lakewood, Monmouth County, New Jersey, Ocean County | Comments Off on How Lakewood became a worldwide destination for Orthodox Jews | Di Ionno
AG Lynch closes Clinton email investigation; Sonnek-Schmelz blasts special rules for powerful insiders
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced this afternoon that she is closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation based upon the recommendation of FBI Director James Comey. “Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State,” Lynch said in a statement released on the Justice Department website. “I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation.”
Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, the business man running for Congress against 28 year incumbent Frank Pallone in the Monmouth/Middlesex 6th District, said that Clinton’s free pass is more than enough reason to clear out partisan political puppets, like Pallone, from both political parties.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Congressional elections, Frank Pallone, Hillary Clinton, Monmouth County | Tags: Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, CD 6, FBI Director James Comey, Frank Pallone, Hillary Clinton, Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, NJ CD 6 | Comments Off on AG Lynch closes Clinton email investigation; Sonnek-Schmelz blasts special rules for powerful insiders
Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, the Republican candidate challenging Congressman Frank Pallone in New Jersey’s 6th District, called the 28 year incumbent’s behavior on the floor of the House of Representatives “disgraceful.”
“Frank’s right,” the challenger continued, “he does not have much to be proud about after 28 years.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2016 Congressional elections, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2016 Elections, Brent Sonnek-Schmelz, Frank Pallone, House of Representatives, Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, NJ CD 6, NJ-6, Sit in | 6 Comments »

MIDDLETOWN – “We’re a long way away from putting a shovel in the ground, but if we’re able to agree on a project plan that meets our needs, and is acceptable to all community stakeholders, it will be a huge step in the future of our program. We really can’t thank Ms. Burry and the Freeholders enough for recognizing our need for a gymnasium, and offering their support.”
That’s what Earl Moore, principal at MAST, the Marine Academy of Science and Technology at Fort Hancok said this week when he learned the Monmouth County Vocational Board of Education and the National Park Service signed a Memorandum of Intent, paving the way for conversion of Buildings 56 and 23 at Fort Hancock into a new facility.
The announcement, which was signed by all parties involved on Thursday, was made at the Fort Hancock 21st Century Advisory Committee meeting at Thompson Park Friday.admin | Filed under: Gateway National Recreation Area, Lillian Burry, Monmouth County News, Sandy Hook | Tags: Fort Hancock, Freeholder Lillian Burry, Gateway National Recreation Area - Sandy Hook, Marine Academy of Science and Tecnology, MAST, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Muriel Smith, National Park Service, Sandy Hook | 1 Comment »

Although charities certainly welcome big donations, it’s the smaller donations, when added together, that allow them to function. Kindness and generosity is the spirit of our holiday season. And with most charities needing financial support to keep their cause going, now is the season to make an impact.
The many Monmouth County-based charitable/volunteer organizations listed below work hard every day to help those less fortunate or for causes that improve the human condition. Please help them to help others this holiday season.
(And remember, a nice gift to your local police, fire, first aid and/or public works departments is both a supportive and wise contribution.)admin | Filed under: Greg Kelly, Merry Christmas, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: Greg Kelly, Holiday Giving, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Tax deductible, Year end giving | 2 Comments »

What an incredible fall season we have experienced thus far. The weather has been extremely kind, allowing us to enjoy the amazing landscapes Monmouth County has to offer. I hope that you attended some of the fall events and festivals held in our beautiful county parks and at our beaches, and also those coordinated in your hometowns. The leaves have changed and that means after leaf collection is completed, the county will begin to prep for the upcoming winter season. We are already collecting salt and materials to safeguard our over 1000 miles of roadways when the inclement weather presents itself. The county will be ready as always.
In the meantime, you may have noticed our red trucks mobilized throughout the county as the Public Works and Engineering staff have been busy the past few months, working hard to enhance the infrastructure and efficiency of our roadways, bridge and culvert structures, traffic signals and natural resources.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Monmouth County News, Tom Arnone | Tags: Freeholder Tom Arnone, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, The Arnone Report, Thomas A.
