|PHOTOS of N.J.'s high school mascots: Fierce, fuzzy & funny - you sent us moreNJ.com / 56 min. ago more|
Photos we've snapped since 2010, and we want yours too. UPDATE, Oct. 16, 6 p.m.: You sent us more photos, we shot more photos and we found some in the archives that we missed the first time around. From all those sources, we're well past 100 pics now. And we're happy to get more, so use the form below to send more, if you have some. Important note: If you sent us pics thinking you were nominating your mascot for the NJ.com mascot challenge, that won't do it. For that, we need a 30-60-second video. The deadline is coming up fast - Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. Here's lots more info. Some are adorable. Some are kind of scary. Some are a little puzzling. They're almost all fuzzy. These are New Jersey's high school mascots. The ones we've photographed since 2010 are in the photo gallery above, and, we know - we're a little heavy on cardinals, or Kardinals, as the case may be. RELATED: Nominations open for the NJ.com HS Mascot Challenge We know there are more out there than these for the 37 schools represented above, so we're looking for some help from you. When you're out there over the next few weeks enjoying some high school sports, scan the venue for something bigger, brighter and fuzzier than your typical athlete. When you find something, snap some pics and then use the form below to send them to us, and we'll add them to the photo gallery. And while you're at it, think about shooting some video, because a video is what's needed to nominate that mascot for the NJ.com HS Mascot Challenge. All the details about that project, including the Oct. 23 deadline for videos to be posted with the #NJmascotchallenge hashtag, are at the link above.

NEWARK -- A contracting company that received tens of thousands to repair the homes of nearly two dozen people damaged by Superstorm Sandy has been accused of performing shoddy work or, in some cases, no work at all, Attorney General Christopher Porrino said Monday. McAllister Building Group, also known as Werks Intended LLC, allegedly violated the state Consumer Fraud Act, the Contractors Registration Act, as well as rules governing contractors specializing in raising homes and general home improvements. The company's owners, Lawrence "Tre" McAllister III and Monica McAllister, have also been named in the complaint. Contractor admits taking $1.6M from Sandy victims The company received $1.3 million in federal relief funds issued on behalf of 23 homeowners for renovation and repair work. In some cases, McAllister began work and then disappeared for months on end or failed to return. In other cases, the company failed to file for permits, or received the permits but failed to pick them up, according to authorities. The Somers Point company also allegedly failed to pay subcontractors for Dumpster and other services, the state alleges. "It is an outrage that unprincipled, shameless contractors have taken advantage of residents whose homes were damaged by Superstorm Sandy," said Porrino. "This office will continue to pursue those whose fraudulent behavior has victimized these people again." Authorities are seeking restitution of the funds as well as civil penalties.

Rescues make great pets. Some fun and interesting facts about cats and dogs from Nationwide pet insurance: * Dogs only sweat from the bottoms of their feet, the only other way they can discharge heat is by panting. Cats do not have sweat glands. * Dogs have about 100 different facial expressions, most of them made with the ears. * A cat can jump as much as seven times its height. * Dogs do not have an appendix. * Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about ten. * Using their swiveling ears like radar dishes, experiments have shown that dogs can locate the source of a sound in 6/100ths of a second. * A cat's tongue is scratchy because it's lined with papillae--tiny elevated backwards hooks that help to hold prey in place. ... and when faced with the choice of going the way around something that untangles herself or the way that makes it worse, my dog will choose the wrong way 101 times out of 100.

It just figures that when the Ms. Senior America pageant comes to Atlantic City this week, Ms. Florida would originally be from New Jersey. Doesn't it?

It just figures that when the Ms. Senior America pageant comes to Atlantic City this week, Ms. Florida would originally be from New Jersey. Doesn't it? "Well, actually, no," said Lorraine Robertson, who raised her family in the New Jersey suburbs before retiring, like so many do, to Florida. "I think of the 10 finalists, one was from New York, I was from New Jersey, and the rest were Floridians." Perhaps that makes her win even more impressive. The hometown fix wasn't in. More impressive still - and she said it, not me -- is that, at 82, she is "at the higher end of the age spectrum," she said. "The competition is open to women 60 and over." Only in the world of AARP and "active adult communities" is 60 considered a senior. Not at movie theaters. Or with Medicaid. "Some of women were quite young," Robertson said. But here she is, Ms. Senior Florida, Lorraine Robertson, a family physician, accomplished pianist and fine artist and overall Renaissance woman, ready to take on senior women from the 49 states, including Ms. Senior New Jersey. Robertson won the Florida contest on Aug. 6 - no small feat considering people over 60 make up about 25 percent of the Sunshine State's population of 20.6 million, the highest percentage in the country. "Well, yes, there are a lot of seniors in Florida, so I was pleased," Robertson said, with all the understatement of a woman not comfortable with bragging. "But I didn't really enter to win. I had no expectation of that at all. I entered for the experience. The joy is in the journey." The journey began last year when she got a letter from pageant organizers that she was "anonymously nominated," she said. "I asked them to tell me who it was but they wouldn't. I figured, 'Why not?' " Why not should be the de facto motto of the pageant, which began as a local event in Asbury Park in 1972. As in why not continue to embrace a full life in the Golden Years? As in why not continue to learn and grow after the kids are gone? "They want to celebrate senior women who have found a new direction and purpose and are thoroughly enjoying their lives at this stage," Robertson said. "They want us to be an inspiration." In the pageant mission statement, Senior America founder and president, Al Mott, lauds women who have "reached the Age of Elegance" and calls the contest a search for the gracious lady who best exemplifies the dignity, maturity and inner beauty of all senior Americans." "He believed women over the age of 60 were underserved and underappreciated," said Robin Milne, executive director of the pageant, which is still run out of Monmouth County. "Our contestants are incredible women with amazing credentials." One of them is the actual Ms. New Jersey, Carolyn Slade Harden, who has an extensive resume in both music and business. She had three early-60s hits, "I Saw You With My Best Friend," "Eavesdropping" and "I Wanna Know Right Now," then moved into business as an executive at several companies. She is the founder and president of OfficeXperts, LLC and has devoted much of her life to educating young people -- as a choral director and as creator of the Harden Institute for Financial Independence, which teaches them money management. After a few years as a Monmouth area contest, the Senior America pageant spread. This year's event, which takes place Tuesday through Thursday at the Resorts Casino Hotel is the 37th annual pageant. At 82, Robertson is the oldest woman in the pageant and, because of that, her history of accomplishments include several "firsts." "I was the first woman with children to be admitted into my medical school," she said. The year was 1968 and out of a class of about 200 medical students at the Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, there were only seven women, she said. "They had never taken a woman with children before. It was very unusual anywhere," she said. Prior to that, she excelled in the sciences and got a master's degree and taught biology, physiology, anatomy and embryology at the high school and college levels. After opening a family practice in Rockaway, she became certified in "addiction medicine" and she says she was the first doctor listed in the Yellow Pages as such. "They had to open a new category for me," she said. That was in 1986, long before addiction was seen as a medical disease, and she gave free treatment to many indigent addicts. After raising her two sons in Mountain Lakes with her husband, Jim, Robertson moved to Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota, Fla., in 2015, a year after her husband's death. "We had been snowbirds for several years," she said. "But I thought living there year-round would be a better lifestyle for me." During the interview at the home of her son, Murray Robertson, in Mountain Lakes, she reflected on her life with her husband. "I had a wonderful marriage," Robertson said. They spent much of it in each other's arms, gliding and dipping across ballroom floors or in musical theater productions. "We were competitive ballroom dancers. We went to the national championships six times." And here she is again, in another national contest. For the talent portion of the Florida competition, she played Duke Ellington's "Beginning to see the Light" on the piano while 40 of her oil and watercolor paintings flashed on a screen behind her. She began painting seriously in her 70s, about the same time she took up the flute. She has an art gallery website and played the flute in several Florida orchestras. "She's amazing," her son said. "One of her paintings sold for $3,000. That's a big deal." But Lorraine Robertson said she thinks she won the Florida competition during the segment in which contestants had to sum up their philosophy of life in 35-seconds or less. "When I was a little girl my mother always said, 'What goes around, comes around,' " she said. "I live by that. And when you do, you are twice blessed. You are blessed with the joy of giving and blessed by the pleasure of receiving." Mark Di Ionno may be reached at email@example.com.

|Man sentenced to 10-year prison term in cocaine scheme NJ.com / 2 d. 12 h. 23 min. ago more|
Officials say a dozen people arrested in drug trafficking plot. CAMDEN -- A 47-year-old Atlantic City man was sentenced Friday to 10 years in federal prison for his role in a cocaine distribution ring that operated in the Atlantic County-area, prosecutors said. Kabaka Atiba, who also goes by Clarence Nixon, previously pleaded guilty in Camden federal court to distribution and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. Atiba was involved in a conspiracy to traffic more than 100 kilograms of cocaine, according to authorities. Atiba and others in the scheme used homes in Pleasantville and Absecon to store and package the drugs. Authorities said Atiba's half-brother, Tozine Tiller, 43, of Absecon, supplied him with the cocaine along with other members of the drug trafficking operation. Atiba distributed more than 840 grams of crack cocaine between February 2010 and December 2014, according to federal authorities. A dozen people have been charged in the drug trafficking conspiracy and all but one has been convicted, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. FBI, Homeland Security and Drug Enforcement Administration agents worked with Atlantic and Cumberland County authorities in the investigation.

Gov. Chris Christie made the announcement Friday, saying it will be a boon for the state. TRENTON -- It's the latest move that could help jolt life into the Garden State's gaming industry: an agreement that will allow New Jersey gamblers to play online games against players in Delaware and Nevada -- including poker, tournaments, and progressive slots. Gov. Chris Christie made the joint announcement with Delaware Gov. John Carney and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval on Friday. Christie said the move will increase jackpots, bring in new revenue, attract new customers, and entice gaming operators to relocate their servers to New Jersey. "This agreement marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for online gaming, and we look forward to working with our partners in Nevada and Delaware in this endeavor," Christie said in a statement. Atlantic City sees its best month ever for online gambling State Sen. Raymond Lesniak, who has drafted a raft of gaming legislation in his four-decade career, said he's pushed for this agreement in an effort to make New Jersey "the Silicon Valley capital of internet gaming." "This is the first step," Lesniak, D-Union, said. "The key factor here is having broader participation. You have to have a larger pool of players to make it interesting." The deal is signed, but when the tri-state gaming begins depends on when an operator submits such a product for testing. Regulators in each of the three states then must approve the operator and their software. "New Jersey stands prepared to approve a game offering for all three states as soon as an operator submits such a product for testing," said David Rebuck, director of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. New Jersey enacted online gaming in November 2013, and after a rough start, annual revenues have increased steadily. There are currently 23 authorized internet gaming websites in New Jersey, all of which are partnered with Atlantic City casinos. Last year, online gambling revenue reached $196.7 million, which helped Atlantic City see its first year-over-year increase in gaming revenue in nearly a decade, the state said. Internet gaming revenue is projected to increase to $240 million this year, the state added. Online gambling is one of many moves the state has made to try and help Atlantic City, which has seen five casinos close in recent years thanks to increased competition from gambling halls in nearby states. Lensiak said internet gaming has "kept the lights on in some casinos in Atlantic City." The lawmaker added that his next move will be to make New Jersey the "mecca of internet gaming" by teaming up with other countries. He hops to bring an Internet Poker World Cup to Atlantic City.

Oct. 11--ATLANTIC CITY, NJ-- The Superior Court judge who nixed the state's most drastic plan to pare back Atlantic City's fire department has given a green light for the state to lay off a smaller number -- but not until February, when a new governor may in fact end the state takeover altogether. In a ruling issued Wednesday, Judge Julio Mendez gave the state the OK to use layoffs to cut the fire department from 195 to his court-ordered minimum of 180, but not before giving 60 days notice after a federal grant expires Nov. 30. The state had previously sought to go as low as 125 firefighters, but was blocked by the judge, who ruled that any reduction below 180 would compromise public safety in the casino resort city.
