|N.J. town votes 3-2 to extend ban on bear huntingNJ.com / 13 h. 32 min. ago more|
The Chatham Township Committee voted 3-2 not to allow bear hunting Officials in a Morris County municipality where bear hunting is not allowed have decided to keep it that way. In a 3-2 vote, the Chatham Township Committee rejected amending a local ordinance that prohibits the discharge of firearms under most circumstances, including the bear hunt. All five members had voted to introduce the proposed change one month earlier, but three voted no following a lengthy public hearing Thursday that lasted until around midnight. Speakers included resident Bob Hander, who said Chatham Township is too crowded to safely accommodate bear hunting. "We are not in a bucolic, rural area. We are in the definitive New Jersey suburb," Hander told the committee. "If people want to shoot bears, they can do it in Morris County. They just shouldn't do it in Chatham," Hander said. Chatham Township covers more than nine square miles and is home to about 10,500 residents. It was recently named the seventh hottest market for real estate in New Jersey. The amended ordinance would not have taken effect in time for the 2017 hunt, which took place in eight northern counties and ended Saturday. Of the 407 bears that were killed, 50 were hunted in Morris County. It also would have been moot, at least in the short term, if Gov.-elect Phil Murphy follows through on his pledge for a statewide bear hunt moratorium starting in 2018. A video of the public hearing is posted on the township's official website. Mayor Curt Ritter supported making the change to allow bear hunting, stating that up to 30 reports of local bear sightings this year raised safety concerns. "Black bears are docile, until they're not. Black bears are not aggressive, until they are," Ritter said at the public hearing. "I don't want a situation where we have a resident, young or old, who is confronted by a bear, does not know how to react -- or does the proper training -- and this bear, being a wild animal, charges and attacks the individual," Ritter added. The current ban on discharging firearms offers exceptions for deer hunting, though no permits have been issued in five years, and target shooting, among other exemptions. Ritter and committee member Kevin Sullivan voted to allow bear hunting, while Karen M. Swartz, Tayfun Selen and Michael Kelly voted against amending the ordinance. All five members are Republicans. When asked about the outcome Sunday, Ritter said in an email, "While I am disappointed that committee members Swartz, Kelly, and Selen flip-flopped on their earlier decision to support the ordinance, I respect their decision and I look forward to working with them and with our residents as we seek to enhance our existing bear safety and awareness initiatives." Swartz, the township's deputy mayor, said Sunday she continues to support the principle behind the ordinance, but took into consideration objections raised during the public hearing. "At this point, it wasn't necessary. It created a lot of anxiety in our community that I felt was counter-productive. Our goal is not to add to the anxiety," Swartz said, adding that she is open to revisiting the discussion. Rob Jennings may be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @RobJenningsNJ.

|Here's how many bears were killed in the 2017 huntNJ.com / 19 h. 53 min. ago more|
Gov.-elect Phil Murphy says he will halt the beat hunt in 2018, pending research into alternative methods to control the bear population in New Jersey. What may be the final bear hunt in New Jersey for a while ended Saturday with 18 bears killed, bringing the total for the year to 409, state environmental officials said. The total was originally reported as 407. Two bears that were killed on Saturday, but too late to be brought to check stations, were added to the total Sunday. This year's 16-day hunt was the longest of the 10 hunts held since 2003, when the state ended a three-decade moratorium, and was the last of eight consecutive hunts under Gov. Chris Christie. Gov.-elect Phil Murphy, who takes office next month, has said he will halt the hunt pending research into other methods for managing the state's bear population. Bear hunting did not occur from 2006 to 2009 under former Gov. Jon Corzine. While bears have been sighted in all 21 counties, they are most common in the northwest corner of the state. The state Department of Environmental Protection estimated before the hunt that up to 2,800 bears lived north of Route 78 and west of Route 287. Opponents of the hunt disputed that figure, stating that it under-estimated the impact of the annual hunts under Christie. A record 636 bears were killed in 2016. The total for the 10 hunts since 2003 was 4,052. Here are the yearly totals, according to the DEP: 2003: 328 2005: 298 2010: 592 2011: 469 2012: 287 2013: 251 2014: 272 2015: 510 2016: 636 2017: 409 Rob Jennings may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The incident occurred on Thursday in Brooklawn. A 28-year-old man was jailed Thursday after allegedly stealing an idling car, and picking up his girlfriend and their two kids before leading police on a chase and flipping the car on railroad tracks. Brooklawn Police said Michael Ranko picked up his girlfriend and their two small children at a nearby Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant before he sped away from a cop attempting to stop him. The woman and the children, ages 5 and 3, were in the car when it flipped on the tracks, according to a witnesses statement to police. The woman and children were caught nearby in an alleyway near the 300 block of Broadway, police said. Ranko jumped on a NJ Transit bus near New Broadway and Town Center Square, police said. The bus was pulled over a short time later and Ranko was arrested, the report said. Ranko, of Paterson, was charged with receiving stolen property, eluding and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. He was held at the Camden County jail pending a detention hearing. The girlfriend, Ashley Ufie, 23, also of Paterson, was processed on warrants for her arrest from Paterson and Hackensack and released. The investigative report said Ranko allegedly jumped into the car after finding it idling and unlocked in the parking lot of Brown's ShopRite near Route 130 before the chase and crash.

|Bear hunt protesters, hunters gearing up for last standNJ.com / 2 d. 20 h. 33 min. ago more|
Another 4 bears were killed Thursday, bringing the 2017 total to 390. The N.J. bear hunt is heading into hibernation after sunset Saturday and it may be a long slumber, with Gov-elect. Phil Murphy saying he will halt the emotionally-charged season in 2018. Four bears were killed Thursday, matching the tally on Wednesday, bringing the 14-day total to 390. A bear killed in the hunt is checked in Fredon, Dec. 4, 2017 (Patti Sapone / NJ Advance Media for NJ.com) Rob Jennings | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com The 2017 hunt was originally scheduled to end Dec. 9, but was extended for four days starting Wednesday after the percentage of "tagged," or documented, bears that were killed fell short of the goal. Hunt opponents are planning to rally for a third time, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, across the street from a check station in Fredon, said Angi Metler, executive director of the Animal Protection League of N.J. and the Bear Education and Resource (BEAR) group. "We're really, really upset about the extension. It was like a middle finger to the bear group," Metler said. State Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Rob Geist said last weekend that the hunt's extension was automatically triggered under the game code, due to fewer than the 20 percent of the bears "tagged," or documented, being killed during the first 12 days. This year's season is the longest of 10 bear hunts, including eight in a row under Gov. Chris Christie, since the state ended a three-decade moratorium in 2003. Murphy has said he will halt the hunt, pending additional research into non-lethal alternatives, but has not ruled out eventually allowing it. Opponents of the hunt say that doing a better job of securing garbage, among other precautions, would reduce encounters with bears. Ray Szpond, president of the New Jersey State Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, said hunters hope to persuade Murphy to see it their way. "If Gov.-elect Murphy listens to the biologists, and the science behind the hunt, he'll realize the only way we can manage the population is through a hunt," Szpond sad. Metler disagreed, saying her group believes that DEP has understated the impact of eight consecutive hunts on the bear population. She also floated a counter-offer to Michael Bush, the hunter who on Monday announced an 'auction' to rip up his hunting permit -- potentially sparing a bear's life -- in exchange for a minimum $500 donation that he said he would divide among two charities. He got no takers -- and Metler, on Thursday, countered that her organization would donate $500 in bear-proof garbage cans in exchange for Bush shredding his hunting permit. A phone call to Bush was not immediately returned. The pace of the hunt has slowed in December, and especially in the last two days. During the six-day hunt in October, 244 bears were killed. Szpond said, "The woods have been quiet," adding, "The bears typically at his point are in hibernation." While land in eight northern counties in open to the hunt, almost all of the activity is taking place in Sussex, Warren, Morris and Passaic. Of the 390 bears killed through Thursday, a total of 219 -- about 56 percent -- were killed in Sussex County. Rob Jennings may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Longest N.J. bear hunt resumes with 4 bears killed WednesdayNJ.com / 3 d. 19 h. 44 min. ago more|
The 2017 hunt entered a 14th day Thursday. Four bears were killed Wednesday as the N.J. bear hunt resumed after a three-day break. A total of 386 bears have been killed in the 2017 hunt that, on Wednesday, became the longest since the state ended a three-decade moratorium in 2003. Hunters are returning to the woods Thursday for a 14th day. The hunt will conclude Saturday, with protesters again planning to gather across the street from a check station in Fredon. The state Department of Environmental Protection announced on Sunday a 4-day extension of the hunt. DEP officials said the reason was that only 21 of the 135 bears that were "tagged," or documented, prior to the hunt had been killed -- six fewer than the 20 percent threshold in the regulations for avoiding an extension. None of the 4 bears brought to check stations on Wednesday were tagged, according to DEP. Until this year, the longest of the 10 hunts since 2003 was in 2016, when a record 636 bears were killed over 12 days split between October and December. Last year was the first in which hunting was extended beyond the traditional six-day season in December. The 2017 hunt, the eighth in a row under Gov. Chris Christie, is drawing additional attention because Gov.-elect Phil Murphy has said he will halt it next year. Hunting is permitted in eight northern counties.

|Vintage N.J. photos of supermarketsNJ.com / 3 d. 21 h. 24 min. ago more|
A trip to the supermarket - part of growing up in New Jersey. I suppose I could write about the history of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., Acme (pronounced Ack-a-Mee for many of us) or smaller supermarket chains such as United Service Grocers or National Self-Service Stores. But I'd rather write about the sensory experience of going to the supermarket as a child. MORE: Vintage photos around New Jersey If your mother brought you along for the trip to the supermarket as a child, you might remember the multitude of aromas in the store; the sounds of the mechanical cash register and the squeaky cart with the bad wheel mom always managed to choose. The sight of aisle after aisle of things you'd give anything for her to put in the cart ... and the things you tried to toss out of the cart when she wasn't looking. He spent the next three years in his room. If you were fortunate, you made it through childhood without causing a dreaded call for a "cleanup in aisle four." Maybe I'm over-embellishing, but I propose that riding in the folding seat of the shopping cart at the supermarket was as good as any amusement park ride. Is it the same today? I can't say for sure, but those people I know with young children don't make a weekly trip to the supermarket; they make multiple stops and pick up a few things each time. It isn't the same weekly pilgrimage. Here's a gallery of supermarkets from back in the day around New Jersey. And if the store you remember isn't in this gallery, there's a very good chance it's in one of the previous galleries linked to below. Vintage photos of supermarkets in N.J.

Three hunters had offered to rip up their $2 permits and donate the proceeds to charity A sporting goods shop owner drew plenty of attention, but no takers, after he and two other hunters offered to sit out this week's extended N.J. bear hunt if hunt opponents agreed to fork over at least $500 apiece. Mountain Mike's Sports Shop in Hardyston announced an auction in a Facebook post Monday morning but called it off at noon Tuesday after not receiving any bids, owner Michael Bush said. Bush said he and the two other hunters offered to rip up their $2, state-issued hunting permits -- setting a minimum bid of $500 per permit -- and donate all proceeds to a local food pantry and an animal shelter. "You people say you care about the bears so much. Let's see," Bush said before withdrawing the proposal. In response, N.J. Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel denounced the failed auction as a "cynical game." "It sounds like they're trying to ransom the bears. More importantly, they're trying to discredit the people who oppose the hunt," said Tittel, who group had urged Gov. Chris Christie to cancel the 2017 hunt. PHOTOS: Bear hunt protest in Sussex County The 2017 hunt was scheduled to end Sunday, but is being extended for four days starting Wednesday because the results fell short of the minimum threshold spelled out in the regulations. A total of 382 bears were killed during separate, six-day hunts in October and December. With the auction out of the way, Bush said he "absolutely" plans to participate in the extended hunt. "All week until Saturday," Bush said, adding that he has killed 4 bears since N.J. resumed bear hunting in 2003. Bush is one of the two hunters who filed harassments complaint against Susan Kehoe, a bear hunt opponent, last year after she allegedly posted on Facebook that she "believed" one of them killed a local bear. A municipal court judge acquitted Kehoe in August. Bush declined to identify the other two hunters who offered to rip up their permits in the auction. Asked about why he set $500 as the starting bid, Bush -- who said he unsuccessfully hunted a bear last week -- said that represents the value of the meat from an individual bear. "I'm not a trophy hunter. I never will be a trophy hunter. I hunt for the meat," he said. Animal Protection League of N.J. Executive Director Angi Metler questioned the motivation behind the auction. Metler said her organization is open to donating bear-proof garbage cans, but would not consider trying to pay off a hunter. "We would be interested in raising money for something that's practical," Metler said. The hunt is taking place in eight northern counties and may be the last in a while. Gov.-elect Phil Murphy has said he will halt the hunts that have occurred annually under Gov. Chris Christie. Rob Jennings may be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @RobJenningsNJ.

|Boys Basketball preview: Group 4 players to watch for in 2017-18NJ.com / 5 d. 18 h. 10 min. ago more|
Who are the top players in Group 4? The boys basketball season gets under way on Friday, Dec. 15. In preparation for the 2017-18 season, NJ.com took a look 44 of the top players to watch in Group 4 heading into the 2017-18 season. Who do you think will have the biggest impact in Group 4? Let us know in the comments section below. Jamal Anderson, Hightstown, Sr., Guard: Anderson is coming off a season that saw him average 17.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 4.2 steals per game. He is heading into the season 112 points away from the 1,000-point mark. Mattias Arrindell, Piscataway, Sr., Guard: Piscataway is a good shooting team and Arrindell is no exception to that. He hit 15 3-pointers last season and finished second on the team with 11.5 points per game. He could tear things up alongside fellow senior Jordan Davidson this season. Derek Astarita, Sayreville, Guard, Sr.: The captain and team-leader will be huge for Sayreville this season. On a team that lost a lot of key scorers to graduation, Astarita will need to build on his 4.1 point per game total if Sayreville is to return to the sectional semifinals. Tyrek Battle-Holley, Dickinson, Sr., Guard: Dickinson fell to Columbia in the first round of the North 2, Group 4 tournament last season and is hoping Battle-Holley can led them out of the first round this season. He averaged 21.1 points, hitting 49 3-pointers in the process, and grabbed 8.2 rebounds per game last year. Greg Billups, Freehold Township, Jr., Forward: Billups is the only player back from last year's Freehold Township squad, which battled to the Central Jersey, Group 4 final. He averaged 6.2 points per game last season. Naseim Brantley, Howell, Sr., Guard: Howell may be moving from Central, Group 4 to South, Group 4, but will be in good shape with Brantley back. He led Howell with 16.8 points per game last season and will head a strong group of returners. Ji'Ayir Brown, Trenton, Sr., Guard: Trenton fell to Freehold Township in the Central Jersey, Group 4 quarterfinals and will hope to advance even further this season. Brown led Trenton with 12.6 points and 4 steals per game. He also had 6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game last season. Hassan Ceesay, Newark East Side, Sr., Guard: Ceesay helped key East Side's run to the North 2, Group 4 final. He averaged 11.5 points per game and will be a crucial force alongside Shamir Johnson. Jaylen Colon, Paterson Kennedy, Sr., Guard: Colon led Paterson Kennedy with 16.3 points per game and knocked down 29 3-pointers last season. He has great ball control and even better footwork. Defensively, he is armed with active hands and will likely be matched against every squad's top guard. He can pull up, drive the lane or pass to open shooters on the perimeter. Kadian Dawkins, Rancocas Valley, Sr., Guard: Dawkins will be the head of a very strong Rancocas Valley team looking to make some noise. He was the key offensively last season with 12.2 points per game last season. Nazim Derry, Atlantic City, Sr., Guard: Derry will lead a pretty strong Atlantic City squad into this season. Derry is the team's top scoring threat back after putting in 10.4 points per game last season. Dylan Deveney, Shawnee, Sr., Forward: Deveney was an intricate piece in Shawnee's run to the South Jersey, Group 4 championship and Group 4 semis. Deveney averaged 16.6 points and surpassed the 1,000-point plateau last season. Anthony Dicaro, Cherokee, Jr., Guard: Standing at 6-1, Dicaro provides Cherokee with some size at the guard position. He can hit deep threes and uses his great vision to help run the point. DiCaro was Cherokee's leading scorer with 11.1 points per game last season. He helped key Cherokee's run to the South Jersey, Group 4 semis. Tommy Drubulis, Scotch Plains-Fanwood, Sr., Guard: Drubulis heads a Scotch Plains team that returns four of its top six scorers. He led the Raiders with 8.9 points and was second on the team with 34 3-pointers last season. Jake Dubois, Southern, Sr., Guard: DuBois is a primary ball handler and Southern’s returning leading scorer. He averaged 15 points per game last year and has 635 career points. Stephan Gabriel, Columbia, Sr., Forward: Gabriel keyed Columbia's run to the North 2, Group 4 quarterfinals and will hope to take the team even further this season. He led Columbia with 11.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season. Aaron Gao, Bridgewater-Raritan, Sr., Guard: Gao's biggest asset is his deadly pull-up jump shot. He led Bridgewater with 14.8 points per game and sunk 49 3-pointers. Bridgewater returns another strong shooter in fellow senior Sterling White. The duo should give defenses fits this season. Danny Gaines, Colts Neck, Sr., Guard: Gaines will be tasked with leading Colts Neck's offense a season after averaging 17 points per game last season. Ross Gang, Millburn, Sr., Guard: Millburn was stunned by Union in the North 2, Group 4 first round last season. Gang will try to erase that early exit this season. He led Millburn with 16.9 points per game last season. Carl Gibson, Cherry Hill East, Jr., Guard: After graduating its top three scorers, Cherry Hill East will look to Gibson to lead the offense this year. He will likely serve as the team's point guard and has the ability to shoot as well. He averaged 7.7 points per game last season. Mario Haklaj, Randolph, Sr., Forward: Randolph graduated a lot of key pieces from last year's sectional semifinal team and will look to Haklaj to build on a 5.6 point per game season. He was a solid player inside with good range and a jump shot to match. He is a good defender that clogs the lane with his active hands. Sam Johnson, Hunterdon Central, Sr., Guard: Johnson averaged nine points per game last season, but will need to improve on that total if he hopes to lead Central back to the a sectional title with Tucker Richardson graduated. Tavon Jones, Linden, Sr., Guard: Jones has been one of the top guards in New Jersey for quite some time and his senior season could be his best yet. He averaged 17.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game as he led Linden to the Group 4 championship. Dylan Kaufman, Marlboro, Sr., Forward: Kaufman averaged 12.1 points and six rebounds per game. He helped key Marlboro's run to the Shore Conference Tournament final last season. Rynell Lawrence, Millville, Jr., Guard: Few sophomores make the impact that Lawrence was able to last season. Millville's offense ran through him and he will be looking to step up even more this year. He averaged 18.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2 steals per game to lead Millville in all four categories last season. Steve Leung, Morristown, Sr., Guard: Morristown graduated its top four scorers and will be relying heavily on Leung to pick up the slack of those graduations. He averaged 4.9 points per game last season and is a pretty dangerous threat from 3-point land. Chris Mann, Phillipsburg, Sr., Guard: Standing at 6-6, Mann might seem like he should be a forward, but he has the speed and shot to excel as a shooting guard as well. He averaged 18.3 points per game and hit 17 3-pointers last season. DeAndrae McFarlane, Union, Sr., Guard: Union has some big-time replacing to do after losing its top three scorers. That will start with McFarlane. He averaged 6.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game last season. Jared Meyer, Old Bridge, Sr., Guard: With Kyle Parris and Rich Calandrino graduated, Old Bridge will rely on Meyer to lead the offense. He is the team's top returning scorer after averaging 6.4 points per game. He is a solid player inside and will need to continue improving on his play this season. Charles Murphy, Montclair, Jr., Forward: Standing at 6-3 and weighing 175 pounds, Murphy provides Montclair with size and strength. He averaged 13.5 points per game and hit 49 3-pointers for the Mounties last season. Mike Patterson, Williamstown, Sr., Guard: Patterson has been a three-year starter for Williamstown. He is an explosive scorer and playmaker that averaged 12.4 points per game last season. He needs 291 points to reach the 1,000-point mark. Jovany Perdomo, Egg Harbor, Sr: Perdomo is Egg Harbor's top returning scorer after averaging eight points per game last season. He is part of a deep returning group for Egg Harbor. Kemari Persol, Woodbridge, Sr., Guard: Persol ran the point for Woodbridge last season and shined behind his great ball handling. He is a ball-moving player that can hit shots on the perimeter. He is a good defender and averaged 8.7 points per game last season. This season, he should be a force alongside Hura Blaine and Curtis Nesbit. Holden Petrick, Toms River North, Sr., Guard: The 5-10, wing guard averaged 10 points per game last season. He was a crucial part in Toms River North’s run to the South Jersey, Group 4 final. Dan Pilsbury, Watchung Hills, Sr., Guard: Pilsbury is a great scorer and is coming off a season where he averaged 16 points per game and hit 29 3-pointers. He also pulled down 3.1 rebounds per game last year. Ryan Purcell, Middletown South, Sr., Guard: The two-guard has over 600 career points and averaged 17 points per game last season. Abdallah Saleh, North Bergen, Jr., Center: North Bergen won 22 games last season and battled to the North 1, Group 4 semifinals. It will look to improve on that success behind Saleh, who averaged 11.1 points per game. Joe Sampson, East Brunswick, Sr., Guard: Sampson is hoping to lead East Brunswick back to success in the GMC after averaging 11.2 points per game last season. Michael Schretter, Ridgewood, Sr., Center: Schretter was a huge part in Ridgewood's run to the North 1, Group 4 final last year. He will need to continue to use his 6-7 frame to be a force inside. He averaged 14.2 points per game last season. Andrew Sims, Lenape, Sr., Center: Sims broke out last season as he led Lenape to the South Jersey, Group 4 semifinals. Although Lenape lost some key players to graduation, it returns Simms, who led the team with 13.8 points per game. Romey Talley, Plainfield, Sr., Guard: Talley averaged 16.1 points per game and was Plainfield's leading scorer. He heads into this year closing in on the 1,000-point mark. Atiba Taylor Jr., Hackensack, Sr., Guard: After initially transferring to Patrick School, Taylor Jr. is back at Hackensack. He is as dynamic of a player as they come. Last season he led Hackensack with 19 points, 4.9 assists and 4.6 steals per game. He finished third on the team with 5.8 rebounds per game. Paul Woolhouse, North Hunterdon, Sr., Center: Woolhouse is a Carnegie Mellon recruit and is coming off a season that saw him average 9.7 points per game. If North Hunterdon hopes to have success, his play on the glass will be huge. Andrew Yoon, Bergen Tech, Sr., Forward: Yoon led Bergen Tech with 14.3 points per game last season. The senior is hoping to build on a solid 2016-17 campaign and propel Bergen Tech out of the first round of states. Richard Greco may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
