OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
STATEWIDE - The governor's special commission on pensions and health benefits is ringing alarm bells in the largest belfry it can find, saying only the swiftest, bravest and broadest reform can save New Jersey from itself. The Star-Ledger consumes its front page this morning with this glaring fact: In five years, a quarter of the state's annual operating budget will be consumed by pensions and benefits for state workers. Just like the governors before him, it all rests on Phil Murphy to somehow solve this insolvable mess. Or, in a tried-and-true Jersey tradition, punt it to the next guy. Click here for exciting real estate opportunities in Florida.

HAMILTON - Tis the season for....gang warfare? The magic of the holidays served as ground zero for potential gang fights in this suburban town, with police breaking it all up on Friday at the annual tree lighting in Kuser Park, NJ 101.5reports. Cops also said two teenage girls reported being assaulted and there was talk of a handgun. The Trentonian says there were up to 25 kids ready to fight, but the Hamilton cops were tipped off.

Don't say you will bend her over the desk and spank her if she is in a bad mood. And, of course, don't repeatedly rub up against her, attempt to kiss her and continually shout obscenities. State officials have slapped the owner of this two-bit local towing company with more than $107,000 in fines, with $57,920 going to the former employee, a single mother of three, for having to deal with his ongoing nonsense over a crappy $12-an-hour job.

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
STATEWIDE - Gov. Chris Christie and other big-time supporters of legal sports betting will be in Washington today, as the U.S. Supreme Court debates if New Jersey should be granted an industry that could pump serious cash into state coffers. Our fearless leaders have been trying to overturn a 1992 federal ban - oddly authored by former Sen. Bill Bradley - for years, pleading the case in the lower courts. It's unfathomable that some states can be granted a privilege, and others can not. Hopefully, the Supreme Court decides to even the playing field. And hopefully before March Madness.
