The former mayor and councilman of Lawrence Township has admitted to stealing thousands of dollars for unapproved salary increases while serving as the executive director of Asbury Park Housing Authority. Mark Holmes, 56, pleaded guilty to second-degree theft by unlawful taking and faces five years in state prison when he appears for sentencing before Monmouth County Superior Court Judge John Tassini on April 6, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni announced in a press release Wednesday. (Snip) Holmes admitted Tuesday to stealing more than $90,000 by using state grant money intended to help low-income residents of Asbury Park to give himself a

Government-run welfare programs never meet their stated goals. And because the funding is endless taxpayer money rather than voluntary charitable contributions, there´s little interest in guarding the henhouse. Lots of opportunity here to MAGA.

Stealing is now "unauthorized salary hikes". Put that in your new English lexicon.

I noticed Holmes´ political affiliation is never stated in the article. That, along with being black, corrupt, and a NJ politician tells me he most likely is a Democrat. If he´d been a Republican, his party would have been the lead sentence.

Faces five years in a State Prison? Anyone care to guess how much time he will actually get? My guess is ´nada´. After all it is only second-degree theft.

Notice the, no doubt, archaic term ´theft by unlawful taking´ to describe his crime. Nice phrasing.

Article says ´up to five years´. Should it read ´up to ten years´ in NJ? Was a deal made?

He will get a full pardon just before the next Democrat Governor leaves office. Then he will sue for his pension. And win.

Tallahassee – After hours of divisive debate over guns, schools and freedom, the Florida Senate spent less than a minute Tuesday and voted on something they all could agree on: daylight. The Senate voted 33-2 to send a bill to Gov. Rick Scott to ask the U.S. Congress to decide whether Florida should be a state that enjoys daylight saving time year-round. It was passed by the House on Feb. 14, 103-11. Under the plan, HB 1013, called the “Sunshine Protection Act,” the state would ask Congress to pass a law to let the Sunshine State move from standard time to daylight saving

Four Eritrean asylum seekers have claimed they were juveniles when they allegedly gang raped a 56-year-old woman in Germany and filmed the attack. A woman was collecting bottles in Dessau in the northern German state of Saxony-Anhalt in August when four individuals, who experts say were at least in their 20s, approached her. They told her that they had seen some bottles she had missed in a remote part of a disused school and attacked her when she went there, it is alleged.

Sweden’s prime minister, who criticized President Trump last year for blaming Swedish violence on Muslim refugees, said Tuesday that he’s cracking down on immigration and gang violence to make Sweden great again. At a White House news conference with Mr. Trump at his side, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven spoke of his own Trump-like agenda of implementing tougher laws on immigration and crime, and of spending more money on law enforcement. “We have our share of domestic challenges, no doubt about that,” Mr. Lofven said. (Snip) It sounded very much like Mr. Trump’s rhetoric against the MS-13 gang members

An Alzheimer´s drug might be

A recent discovery about an Alzheimer´s drug may lead to the end of cavity fillings in teeth as we know them. Scientists discovered the drug, Tideglusib, promoted natural tooth regrowth during its clinical trials on mice, which led to total repair of cavities. They learned the drug stimulates stem cells in teeth, which creates new dentine — the substance beneath tooth enamel that´s eroded by decay when a cavity forms. When the researchers realized the drug was promoting tooth regeneration, they soaked collagen fillers in Tideglusib, inserted them into cavities and saw the tooth craters disappear within six weeks. After the collagen

If you had seen a doctor who misdiagnosed your illness, prescribed a remedy that made it worse, and subsequently falsified the record, would you return to him for medical advice? The legacy media have done precisely that in the case of Ezekiel Emanuel. Dr. Emanuel is best known as an advocate of health care rationing and a key architect of the “Affordable Care Act.” In other words, he believes the malady troubling American medicine is that we provide too much of it. The treatment he prescribed — Obamacare — was a disaster and he consistently overstates the efficacy of that

California’s water regulation agency approved new measures Tuesday that will allow recycled water – water that once ran through the sewers – to be added to the state’s reservoirs, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The new rules are expected to be implemented by 2023. "This is a type of indirect potable use — it´s not treated recycle water that goes directly to someone´s house," said Miryam Barajas at the Water Board. "It´s highly treated." She says the new regulations could potentially affect all 36 of California’s reservoirs that serve as the main source of the state’s municipal drinking water. The

Sunday, March 11, is the start of daylight saving time across the country. But it might be the last time people in Florida have to switch their clocks. The legislature there voted overwhelmingly to abolish the biannual changing of the clock, and stick with daylight saving time year round. Last year, Massachusetts considered a similar move by switching to Atlantic Standard Time, which would permanently set their clocks ahead one hour. Maine also passed bills to ditch daylight saving time. Arizona and Hawaii don´t abide by daylight saving time. The problem Florida faces is that while the law lets states opt out of

Maybe she´s not popular enough to run for president after all. Oprah Winfrey´s new star vehicle, "A Wrinkle In Time," which opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, has been totally savaged by critics. The movie critic site Rotten Tomatoes gives it just a 46% rating, meaning the movie isn´t classified as "fresh," but rather deemed "rotten." "It´s hard to understand what went wrong - the cast couldn´t be more appealing, and the film is bursting with special effects.
