@Mac I didn't think you were picking on me, I just wanted you to know I didn't give Ocean County aRead More pass. @all--It's about time NJ has to think about really consolidating school districts! We presently have 296 school districts, 398 public high schools, 33,246 full time teachers and 404,165 students h.s. students enrolled. The politicians will never let this happen because most of the political patronage jobs are in the supervisory positions. ….and so are these huge retirement packages. It would be the sensible thing to consolidate not only to save money, but for the sake of education(we need a more cohesive curriculum). But we're in NJ and it ain't gonna happen!

Trying to get exposure for the 4/28/14 deadline for FEMA claims. FEW knows this deadline isRead More approaching. After 4/28 you will NOT be able to open and correct claims. While it is 18 months later some folks are just coming to and realizing what they have to do. We really need help making this known, Christie has asked for an extension BUT it doesn’t look good. Menendez favors this as well. I thought if we could get folks informed, maybe the deadline would be extended. We really need this. I’ve been working with a public adjustor and he has been getting A LOT of money for people. THESE people should get their fair payment. I have been working on Sandy since Day 1 and WE NEED this extension! Any help is appreciated! Thank you contact: Booker/Christie/Papers

The grant may be $150,000, but that doesn't mean the homeowner can't put in money of their own.Read More Considering the age of the man in the video, there's a good chance he had paid the mortgage off (or close to it) on the original home, and may have been able to throw in another 50,000 or more out of pocket. Remember, it's just the house itself, not the land (cost) at this point; maybe it's a manufactured home, or not very big on square feet. It doesn't look like a "big" house, although it is really high up, and personally, I think that pretty much ruins the look of the house. But I guess that's how it needs to be to live that close to the shore?

Christie's charade of a meeting won't be at Silver Bay School in Toms River, but inland at a BrickRead More Twp. school, Chief.

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.
Mac April 18, 2014 at 12:05 pm
@Sharron Greenberg - personally I thank you for this information - this list seems to cover a lot ofRead More bases and is as Christie-style politically correct as it can get - I'm sure the other $13M and counting will uphold this same policy of distribution - what I find suspect about this money distribution is that Christie hasn't been touting it with all the newsprint about this money not being distributed - our Governor has a habit of self-touting everything he does for the benefit of the people (short list but he's still relentless about it) - perhaps those that contributed believing this fund had more to do with rebuilding hurricane destroyed homes on the Jersey Shore has something to do with another one of Christie's surprising leadership decisions that has to be dragged out of him
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.
Michie511 April 18, 2014 at 07:33 am
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). If it was anyone else doing that, Christie would be all over it. I love NJ but not the crooked politics.

@grace - they move to Florida anyway - there are probably more retired NJ politicians living inRead More Florida than their off-spring still padding their pensions back home in NJ - I'd rather they only have $40 to $50 thousand of our pilfered money to spend there than the current $100,000 to $200,000 they are spending now

Some people here on Patch really need to grow up; show some respect~ a life has been lost!
Genrl Quarters April 20, 2014 at 07:31 pm
@De Lucia....respect is something that's earned. While indeed it's a tragedy that someone killedRead More them self in a car accident, you need to remember that this is a news source blog, with most people not knowing the deceased, and as such purely commenting on the aspects of what happened. People like you that knew the deceased would better be served by avoiding these sites and instead commenting on the deceased person's funeral home's 'tribute page'. So, it's not really a thing of people needing to "grow up" (in your words)...it's more about being appropriate....and on a news source site like this, most comments that discuss the event are appropriate as long as profanity is not used.
Gino De Lucia April 21, 2014 at 01:23 am
@Genrl Quarters... Actually, I did not know the deceased young man, but regardless, my thoughtsRead More & prayers go out to him and to his family! Moreover, I certainly agree that respect has to be earned! When I said that some people need to grow up, my thoughts were directed at the idiots that use this site to bash one another. I am a retired Photojournalist with tons of published works to my credit and so therefore, I can assure you that I do know & respect what "accurately reporting the news" is all about and I have no problem with the way Patch goes about doing what they do. As far as I'm concerned, photos are part of the news.

This article in no way resembled my own experience at either of the events I've attended. Just sayin....
ER April 10, 2014 at 01:16 am
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.
