Plus:  No more cash lanes on the Garden State Cashcow

No more cash lanes on the Garden State Parkway.  Not that I use them.  Do you?  I’m curious to know why.  The New Jersey Turnpike Authority approved a 914-million-dollar contract with a Tennessee based company to make the toll system on those spans completely electronic.  If you don’t have EZPASS cameras will scan for your license plate and send you a bill.  There’s big fines for anyone trying to cheat the system with a fake plate.

The state department of Labor inspected working conditions at Jersey Shore beaches and found violations up and down the Jersey Shore.  The deaths of two lifeguards last year was the catalyst for the inspections.  Violations ranged from boat hazard assessments to record keeping to lightning policy issues.  Towns won’t be fined if they address the issues.

The search is on for a missing autistic Sayreville man.  Twenty-nine-year-old Jonathan Misak has been gone since Sunday afternoon at about 3:30.  Police report he was last seen wearing a blue Denver Broncos shirt, plus blue jeans and gray sneakers. Jonathan stands five feet, ten inches and weighs 210 pounds.  Anyone with knowledge of his location is asked to contact Sayreville police.

Newark Liberty is at the bottom of the list when it comes to customer satisfaction.  The JD Power study ranks the transportation hubs on criteria including terminal facilities, baggage claim, and on-time performance.  EWR no Bueno.

Governor Murphy is sending a message of support to the state of Florida.  He says New Jersey stands ready to help as Hurricane Ian slams the state.  Meanwhile, 84 New Jersey State Troopers are in Puerto Rico to help with recent hurricane damage.

Ian slammed the west coast of Florida with 155 mile an hour winds, making landfall near Ft. Myers.  Currently, Ian’s strength has dipped below hurricane force.  Forecasters predict the system will dip out over the Atlantic Ocean and then make landfall again on Georgia or North Carolina shores.  The remnants of the system will likely bring rain to the Jersey Shore Sunday and Monday, maybe Tuesday.

Carl Craft is studying here on earth for a short time and trying to make the most of it... with varying amounts of success. He's heard every morning on The Morning Rat Race. Sometimes he goes, "sock / shoe, sock / shoe" which we think is a sign of some kind of psychosis...
