Just some of the thousands of pets in need of adoption in New Jersey. There's summer heat, and then there's oppressive summer heat. While we do everything we can to keep ourselves cool, it's important to remember our pets as well. "If it's hot to you it's just as hot for your dog or cat, and probably even worse," said John Gickling, a board certified veterinarian in emergency and critical care. "We're better equipped to handle the heat because we perspire." Some tips on making sure your pets can deal with excessive heat: * If you walk your dog, pick the coolest time of the day, follow a shady route and bring water for your pet. * Older pets, overweight animals and dogs with short snouts suffer more in high heat. * If your pet is outdoors, make sure it has a cool place to lay and that water is always available. Avoid taking your pets anywhere that has concrete or blacktop until temperatures normalize. * Dogs may be overheating if they can't get up, aren't alert or can't stop panting. If you suspect overheating, hose your dog off but never use ice water, which worsens the situation. If this doesn't work, a visit to a veterinarian is important.

It was the game where you controlled the action, sort of. In 1948, Norman Sas of Alpine, N.J., came up with a game that most every male child (and, some girls) played -- electric football. An employee at the Sas family company, Tudor Metal Products, had tinkered with vibrating electric games in the 1940s, but Sas' brainstorm of applying it to football led to the development of a toy that remained popular into the 1980s. It was a simple but ingenious concept, requiring almost no changes from its invention through the decades of sales that followed. Players with small plastic "brushes" on their bases were lined up on a metal playing field. When everything was set up, the flick of a switch started the field vibrating, making the players move forward, at least when the game was new. Norman Sas, far right, in 1971 with electric football fans, including Pete Rozelle, second from left.Courtesy of Earl Shores and Roddy Garcia The play ended when a player on the defense came in contact with the ball carrier, the "ball " being a football-shaped piece of felt that fit in his plastic arm. The game itself often ended when player figures with older, worn-out bases began moving backward or in endless circles. Over the years, the game evolved, with quarterbacks and their spring-loaded arms able to throw the ball (pass complete if it hit an eligible receiver) and spring-loaded kickers able to attempt field goals. Attachments that replicated scoreboards, clocks and even fans were included in later versions. By 1967, Sas had signed a deal with the National Football League to add official team colors and logos. More than 40 million versions of the game were sold over the years with perhaps just as many little felt 'footballs' lost and eventually replaced with wadded-up paper. Sas died in 2012, and was posthumously inducted into the Miniature Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Greg Hatala may be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @GregHatala.

|2 ex-high school football stars charged in Shore heroin sweepNJ.com / 3 d. 22 h. 55 min. ago more|
The ring is accused of obtaining heroin in New York for sale in Monmouth and Ocean counties NEW YORK -- A dozen people were charged and 11 were arrested Tuesday for their roles in a ring running heroin from Washington Heights and the Bronx in New York for sale in Monmouth and Ocean counties, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and the New Jersey Division of the Drug Enforcement Agency said in a statement. Tahmir RiceFile photo Search warrants were executed at "several" locations in New Jersey, according to Acting U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim. "As alleged, this organization transported large quantities of heroin from Washington Heights and the Bronx across the Hudson to Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey, helping to fuel the opioid epidemic plaguing our nation," Kim said. Miguel Ariel Susana, Quadre Hubbard, James F. "Brim Reaper" Smith III, Tahmir Rice, Damar Bivins, Jair Oliver, Tysheem Smith, Joel Rosado, Aveena Vitrano-Manley and Frank DeSanto were arrested by the DEA Tuesday. Another suspect, Marcellus Cutler, was still at large. Tyron Trotman was already in state custody and will be transferred to federal custody. Rice and Hubbard, both from Paterson, were high school football stars. Hubbard, now, 24, played quarterback for St. Mary of Rutherford. Rice, now, 22, was a tight end at Eastside High in Paterson. Authorities say the ring has been operating since May, obtaining the drugs in New York and packaging them in New Jersey for sale here. According to authorities, Susana supplied Hubbard and James Smith, while Rice, Bivins, Oliver, Cutler and Tysheem Smith helped handle other aspects of the operation, including packaging the drugs, storage and distribution. DeSanto and Trotman allegedly sold to street-level customers, while Rosado and Vitrano-Manley, along with James Smith, pooled their money to obtain "significant" quantities of drugs. All 12 have been charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics. Police in Howell, Lakewood, Freehold Township, Neptune Township and the Monmouth County Sheriff's Office assisted in the investigation. Paul Milo may be reached at email@example.com.

|Religious shrine removed from state property after 14 years, report saysNJ.com / 4 d. 19 h. 42 min. ago more|
Newly-elected Passaic Mayor Hector Lora said he couldn't allow the religious shrine to be on public space. PASSAIC -- After more than a decade of occupying public space, a shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Passaic was removed Wednesday after an order by the city's mayor, NorthJersey.com reported. The shrine sat on property owned by state's Department of Transportation at the corner of Hope and Madison avenues. But, newly-elected Passaic Mayor Hector Lora, who is a minister, reportedly said he couldn't allow the religious shrine to stay on public space. The shrine's icon, a wooden log in a glass case, was moved to an undisclosed location. A group that maintained the shrine, known as the Mayordomia Guadalupe, took possession of the candles, statues and other items contained in the shrine, according to the report. The statue was reportedly erected in 2003 by a group of believers, but caught the city's attention in 2012 after it was vandalized. Many in the Mexican community would go to the shrine to place fresh flowers or attend a Saturday prayer service. In May, there was an annual procession in which the icon was paraded through the streets, according to the report. Mayordomia Guadalupe had considered moving the shrine in the last few months to churches and to private property. Sara Jerde may be reached at email@example.com. Follow her on Twitter @SaraJerde.

Jeavonte Dennis, 19, and Nyje Johnson, 22, both of Paterson, will appear in court Friday. HACKENSACK - Two men found guilty in the gang-related shooting death of Nazerah Bugg, 14, in Paterson will be sentenced on Friday and could spend decades in prison, authorities said. Nazerah Bugg (FILE) Jeavonte Dennis, 19, and Nyje Johnson, 22, both of Paterson, will appear in court before Judge James J. Guida in Hackensack. The case was moved to Bergen County Superior Court because one of the slain girl's relatives works for the Passaic County court system. Nazerah was shot through the heart on Sept. 22, 2014 and died in a nearby hospital. Investigators have said she was caught in a crossfire during a battle between rival gangs in Paterson. Another 15-year-old was shot and survived. Nazerah, a freshman at International High School, was leaving Mom's Fried Chicken with a group of friends when the shots rang out on the corner of Clinton and North Main streets. Friends described her as a popular and talented basketball player who aspired to compete in the WNBA. Family baffled by man's disappearance Dennis and Johnson were two of several defendants in the case. They were the first to stand trial and were found guilty in June. Dennis was found guilty of first-degree murder. Johnson was found guilty of first-degree aggravated manslaughter. Both were found guilty of first-degree conspiracy to commit murder and several second-degree firearms charges, according to Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes. A memorial was set up shortly after the September 2014 shooting death of Nazerah Bugg, 14, of Paterson. (FILE) Anthony G. Attrino may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
