Its hard to believe and wrong for homes to be still sitting destroyed after 18 months. Unless thereRead More are still insurance issues. But FEMA had a program to have a home taken down at the Governments cost, run by the individual towns. Unless the homes were "second vacation homes", which did not qualify. They took mine down, but it took 14 months to come down this past January finally. I had to go to the expense of removing the footings and foundation, which was not part of the program, unless damaged during the home demo process.

Jack Smith - The grants from Mary Pat Christie's charity was transparent last year.Read More http://sandynjrelieffund.org/go.cfm?do=Page.View&pid=21 Admittedly, I only know this as I work for one of the np; so maybe they didn't do a great job publicizing their stuff.
Realitysux April 17, 2014 at 09:06 am
they allegedly spent 40k,unlike pat who pays herself 450k annually and was applauded at such a smallRead More rate. kane in your corner on channel 12 news did two exposes trying to find out where the money went, but got very vague answers. plus Christie claims it is a long term charity, which means the longer they have the money the more pat gets paid. some of the charities they gave to where American red cross, education?, habitat for humanity, 18 month after sandy, meanwhile this couple had handed out over one half of money received in the first six months, more than a million bucks. I am sure people who donated to pats charity had no idea it was to be given to other charities, who charge a higher rate of administration fees, so the money is getting admin fees charged twice, and given out in dribs and drabs. otherwise they would have donated directly to these other so called charities
STSV2010 April 17, 2014 at 01:30 pm
I know that this information will never register to Realitysux, but, for the rest of you: TheRead More state’s own investigation, begun a few months earlier, determined that the bogus charity had distributed just $1,650 in gift cards to actual victims and Paypal gave back between $250,000 and $275,000 to approximately 2,000 donors. Meanwhile, this summer, the Sparta couple who started the charity, John Sandberg and Christina Terraccino, were living in a gated community on Costa Rica’s Gold Coast. Mary Pat Christie's pay of $307,372 is for being a vice president at Cantor Fitzgerald, the Wall Street financial services firm. She receives no money for the relief fund. The largest grants the group has awarded, include: $5.2 million to a program that provides gap funding for homeowners who have qualified for a state-administered rebuilding grant, $1.6 million for housing assistance in Union Beach and $750,000 to support Habitat for Humanity International’s Sandy efforts.

Isn't nepotism frowned upon in the government? First Mary Pat, her son, & other family membersRead More are paid with Christie funds to do an unneeded "NJ Shore" commercial (nepotism), and Mary Pat is in charge of the donated money (again nepotism).

Surely she would have known what happened already through her network of friends ?

@ OE Defending him or merely telling you of my experience in attending 2 Town Halls?

After one of the events, he actually chatted with THE PEOPLE afterward in the parking lot, and although I'm a nobody, even I was afforded an opportunity to have a brief exchange with him out there, about an issue I was concerned about. This article in no way resembled my own experience at either of the events I've attended. Just sayin....

p.s. One of the reasons he stayed to chat with THE PEOPLE outside the venue, was that theRead More attendance was so beyond what they had expected, many folks did not get into the building and he felt bad they had come to the event and the place wasn't big enough to hold them all.

I read all the above comments... I knew John since I was 15 and he was a character. I dated him andRead More was engaged to him for a few years when he was in his 20-30's. John was a good guy, he had issues, yes his girls were neglected in the sense that he wasn't there he was an alcoholic it was in his DNA nothing he could have done could have taken that demon away. He tried to stay with the mother of his girls but I know that she was not staying in NJ she was leaving NJ and when she told him this she was done with him. John wasn't going because of his family here and he wasn't going due to an ultimatum I know this because I picked him up from the apartment there in Barnegat a few times and was with him before and after there kids were born. John loved his girls and regardless if he was there or not, I know that was a demon that he carried till the very end. When she left he knew he would never see them unless she came back and she wasn't she was done and there relationship was over. As far as what happened to him, I know John and he would hang with the best of them and he would always be the last one standing. His mind always, ALWAYS be thinking about his demons and he voiced it as soon as he was lit he missed them and wished his life was different. Knowing he was killed by more than beer it sucks and those idiots should be ashamed of themselves. They should be made to stay in jail, get sober and live with what the judge orders as there punishment. My heart goes out to his Mom, Kathleen, Joe and his kids. I pray that one day his kids understand that his addiction had ahold of him and wasn't letting go and if he could have traded his life for anything he would have made it so you 3 would always be at the top of his list. Sympathy's XO Stephanie H.

This is excellent proactive thinking on the part of whomever came up with the idea ( I'm sure itRead More wasn't Christi as he hates addicts and would exterminate them if he could)! It is true though that Narcan throws the addict into instant opiate withdrawal and they are going to be upset (not because there life was just saved) because coming down from a place where you feel safe (addicts turn to drugs because fear drives them) and will instantly be thrown into for lack of a better term "culture shock". Immediate withdrawal is incredibly painful and psychologically devastating. They will become violent, they will rummage the ambulance or hospital for something to stick in their vein and not necessarily because they don't want to stop us in but because addiction is a monster that takes over all rational thought and drives one to insane decisions. If they see a saline injection on a med cart you can bet they will steal it even knowing it won't get then high but to fulfill there ritual of abuse and injecting things into there bodies. I saw a lot when I was a kid, I'm in my 50's now and clean for over 20 years. I'll explain the allure of heroin as simple as possible for those that don't understand. Just please make an honest attempt at feeling the scenario I am about to describe. Imagine being swaddled in a soft blanket like an infant, in perfect grace and comfort dreaming of the most beautiful things your imagination can design. Your warm and filled with love and protection, your warm, the perfect temperature flows throughout your body and the music of the most spiritual nature lulls you in and out that beautiful dream your floating in. You feel what it must be like to love and be loved and then IN ONE INSTANTANEOUS MOMENT IT ALL GETS SUCKED OUT OF YOU and now your lonelier then you've ever felt, your I've cold with goose pimple skin, lights are cutting you like ginsu knives painfully cutting to the bone while voices frantically ask you questions about how you feel but you can't talk...if you open your mouth you'll vomit. You have an overwhelming fear of dread and isolation. You most likely evacuates your bowels and don't even care you just want a blanket and a shot of something to take all this overwhelming anxiety and shut it off. You went from heaven to hell in 3 seconds and within a few minutes if you have a experienced nurse, doctor, or emt they give you a safe shot of liquid valium put a catheter in your urethra and tell you to get some rest. That is what it is like to go from a non fatal overdose to a shot of narcan! If they don't instruct the people (cops, emt workers ) to check vitals and make sure that the person can't be stabilized before administering narcan then yes you will have violent episodes of panic and a addict patient just wanting to get out of the ambulance or wherever they are as fast as possible. I REPEAT MY INITIAL STATEMENT THAT IT IS A GREAT IDEA TO SUPPLY FIRST RESPONDERS WITH THIS MEDICATION BECAUSE IT WILL SAVE LIVES BUT DONT JUST PUT IT IN THE MEDICAL KIT AND THINK IT WORKS AS EASY AS GLUCOSE ON A DIABETIC. They need training on how and when to use it and how to defend themselves so a cop don't shoot an addict attacking him for waking him up from the safest, most comforting place he has ever been able to find. I doubt I got to many people to see the point of view from an addicts mind but in order to save them you need to understand them. I hope for the sake of all the children and older addicts they can make a narcan statewide program work but believe me it's not like giving someone an aspirin, glass of water and sayin see ya in the morning!
Mattie April 8, 2014 at 11:51 am
Thank you Lucio for taking the time and making the effort trying to help people really understand -Read More instead of merely judging.
