UNION COUNTY – The holiday season gets underway this weekend as Union County communities hold their official tree lighting ceremonies.
CLARK—The township will host its annual holiday winter festival and tree/menorah lighting on Sunday, Nov. 29.
TRENTON – On Monday, the Senate Law, Public Safety and Veterans Affairs Committee approved a package of bills sponsored by Senate President Richard J. Codey (D-Essex) that would crack down hard on motorists repeatedly caught driving under the influence or driving with a suspended license.
Red light cameras are successfully used in a growing body of U.S. communities, as well as across the globe – from Taiwan to Germany to the United Kingdom – to reduce accidents caused by ignoring traffic signals at busy intersections.
With the holiday season rapidly approaching, it’s never too early to begin saving money on gift purchases. To help its customers avoid credit card debt and an empty wallet, The Provident Bank is offering some cash-saving tips.
LIVINGSTON—Holidays are times when people enjoy spending with family and friends. Unfortunately, the holiday season can be a time for accidents and injuries.

I’ve said in the past that red light cameras are a mistake, and I’m disappointed that three municipalities in the state [Newark, Brick and East Brunswick] are moving forward with the program. Simply put, these cameras are nothing more than a money-grab for municipalities, and will result in more traffic accidents than if we did nothing at all.
RAHWAY—On the evening of Sunday, Dec. 20, Morning Star Community Christian will hold their eighth annual Christmas concert, “Christmas With the Stars,” at the Union County Performing Arts Center at 1601 Irving Street in Rahway.
