OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL - Gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy vows to raise taxes $1.3 billion to pay for his plan to pull New Jersey out of the muck. Meanwhile, his competitor, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, pledges to somehow slash the average tax bill by a glorious $800. One would be quick to guess who is the frontrunner, and one would be wrong.  Murphy has consistently been up in the polls by double-digits, perhaps fueled by New Jersey taxpayers tired of shell games that offer voter-friendly tax breaks, yet drive the state farther toward insolvency. Debates are scheduled Oct. 10 and Oct. 18 for voters to try to decipher fact v. fiction.

STATEWIDE - A storm is coming! A storm is coming! Well, it's more like a "tropical storm watch," and it is the final remnants of that annoying Hurricane Jose, as it slowly churns up the East Coast. As of last night, the big storm was hanging about 540 miles from Atlantic City. The big "watch" includes the Jersey Shore, from Sandy Hook to Cape May. So, what does it all mean?

BEDMINSTER - The world's most powerful leaders may soon be standing behind you at your favorite suburban Starbucks, as the Washington Post reports that President Trump will be hosting global powers at his golf club in Somerset County next week, when the United Nations General Assembly converges in New York. Funny to watch your local barista attempt to spell "Xi Jinping" on the President of China's latte, or if Narendra Modi, the prime minister of India, will demand a warmer croissant at your local Panera Bread. But, hey, it is all part of life in a new, improved Trumpified world.

ON THE ROADS - For years, they were the optimal place to pee. But now the state's rest areas on the Turnpike and Garden State Parkway can be, oh, so much more. The Turnpike Authority will be spending upwards of $250 million to overhaul the 16 rest areas over the next seven years. We're thinking something better than cafeteria lines leading to a Burger King, and food choices that extend beyond overpriced, sugar-infused bread products. You know it's time to upgrade services areas when many motorists say, "Hey, let's just wait until we get to Delaware. I can hold it in."
