CARTERET—Mayor Daniel Reiman proposed a $1.2 million cut in Carteret’s defeated school budget at a special joint meeting of the Borough Council and School Board on May 19.

The reduction is from the School District’s proposed 2008-2009 total school year budget of $50,236,683, which called for a general fund tax rate levy of 2.416 up from the 07-08 actual tax rate levy of 2.371 per $100 of assessment.

UNION COUNTY—Law enforcement officers from the Union County Police Department will be cracking down on unbuckled motorists and their passengers as part of the National “Click It or Ticket Campaign”.

Beginning May 19 and running through June 1, county police and local police agencies throughout Union County will conduct a zero tolerance seat belt enforcement campaign and will issue tickets to motorists who are not buckled up. This high publicity law enforcement effort gives people more of a reason to buckle-up, the threat of a traffic ticket. Most people will buckle-up for safety but for some, it is the threat of the ticket that convinces them to buckle their seat belt.

CLARK—The township will be hosting their seventh annual Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 26. The parade kick-off time will be promptly at 9:30 a.m. and will be followed by the traditional Memorial Day Services in front of Arthur L. Johnson High School on Westfield Avenue in Clark.

There is much prior precedent in Clark’s history to honor its war dead with a parade. During World War II the residents celebrated “I Am American Day” originating in 1942 and continuing through the 1950s. At the conclusion of those parades, all the participants and observers circled the large wooden board listing the names of those Clark residents who went off to war, called the “Honor Roll.” In 1947 the “Honor Roll” was replaced with our present war memorial monument located in front of Clark’s high school, Arthur L. Johnson High.

UTICA, N.Y. – Just 17% of Americans who have already received or are anticipating a 2008 federal tax rebate say they plan to use any portion of that money to splurge on something they wouldn’t normally buy – the vast majority will use the money primarily to pay bills or cover other everyday expenses, a new Zogby Interactive poll shows.

Younger Americans are most likely to have plans to spend at least some of their rebate check on a splurge – 24% of those 18 to 24 say they will do so, while just 14% of those older than 65 said the same. Men (20%) are more likely than women (15%) to say they will use at some of their rebate funds to purchase something they would not normally buy. Those with the least household income are more likely to be planning a splurge with their rebate check than those from wealthier households – 22% of those with less than $25,000 in household income anticipate using some of the funds for a splurge, compared to 16% of those with more than $100,000 in household income.
