Dawn Watson's Pet Tip of the Week: Shaving as a Part of Grooming

Dawn Watson/CNBNewsnet Many dog owners have their dogs shaved for the summer but dogs need that outer coat to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Most dogs have three kinds of fur: undercoat, guard hair, and whiskers. Some have both an outer primary coat and an inner undercoat, called a double coat . The double coat serves as insulation, both from the heat and the cold. Shaving a double-coated dog takes away the insulation nature supplied to prevent freezing and heat-stroke. Dogs do not cool themselves through their skin; their source of cooling comes from panting and the only part of a dog that sweats is his paws! When shaving an older a dog , his fur may grow back in... Read more →

CNBNews graphics file A state watchdog group finds the state's pawn shops, secondhand good stores and scrap metal yards are infested by corrupt and mob-connected owners who are encouraging drug addicts to steal goods and metals from retailers, utilities and homes. Shockingly, the state investigative report finds, many of these illegal and unscrupulous businesses could have been shut down but local police departments were clueless about their municipalities' own laws. “We found that not only do these secondhand goods stores and scrap yards readily accept stolen items, in some cases they were directing the customers on what items to steal,” said Kathy Riley, a spokeswoman for the State Commission of Investigation, which issued the 100-page report Tuesday recommending that the state take over the licensing...

Letters to the Editor: NJ Democrats in the State Legislature Took A Stand for the People

Yesterday, Democrats in the state Legislature stood up for the people of New Jersey when they passed a budget that rejected the higher income and sales taxes in Governor Phil Murphy's budget proposal while still funding critical state priorities. "The Democratic-controlled Legislature on Thursday night passed a $36.5 billion budget that aligns closely with Murphy’s spending priorities: more money for schools, public workers’ pensions, pre-K programs, and NJ Transit, and a higher tax credit for the working poor." 6/22/18 The main difference between the budget the Legislature passed and the one Governor Murphy is demanding is how to pay for necessary investments. Governor Murphy's plan raises income and sales taxes on the people of New Jersey, while the Legislature believes that the Trump billionaire corporations... Read more →

ARCHBISHOP CHAPUT: A GREAT NATION, IF WE ACT ACCORDINGLY

By Archbishop Charles Chaput Bishop of the Philadelphia Diocese “President Trump on Wednesday [June 20] walked back his policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the border that had united most of America in opposition . . . In classic Trumpian fashion, the President took credit for reversing a policy he previously said he couldn’t reverse . . . But this was a problem of his own creation, and ‘zero tolerance’ is part of it.” -- Wall Street Journal, lead editorial, June 21 President Donald Trump has a gift for creating turmoil. His eccentric leadership style – fluid on details, thriving on criticism, unapologetic about mistakes and contradictions -- often works to his advantage by enraging his opponents and entertaining the masses.

ICYMI: Top Assembly Democrat rips Phil Murphy for 'campaigning' instead of 'governing'

By Matt Arco NJ Advance Media for NJ.com Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, D-Middlesex, says Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy needs to come to the negotiating table. With only 10 days left for Gov.

nj1015.com OPINION: Governor Murphy is insisting on these new tax increases

Who does Phil Murphy really care about? You or the NJEA? The state legislature has 10 days to balance the budget or else they’ve got to shut it down. Governor Murphy has big plans for your money! The one that is most bothersome, though, is the school funding formula which has always been tricky for New Jersey since they are at the mercy of the ever-vigilant ever-bloodsucking New Jersey education association. It’s the most powerful union in the state and surely the most powerful teacher’s union in the country. You see lawmakers have come up with a school funding formula that will work for the next year or two. But that’s not enough for Murphy. He won’t be happy until we have “sound and sustainable...

Administration Eases Way For Small Businesses To Buy Insurance In Bulk

published here with permission By Jay Hancock, Kaiser Health News and Julie Appleby, Kaiser Health News Small employers will more easily be able to band together to buy health insurance under rules issued Tuesday by the Trump administration, but the change could raise premiums for plans sold through the Affordable Care Act’s online marketplaces, analysts say. The move loosens restrictions on so-called association health plans, allowing more businesses, including sole proprietors, to join forces to buy health coverage in bulk for their workers. By effectively shifting small-business coverage into the large-group market, it exempts such plans from ACA requirements for 10 “essential” health benefits, such as mental health care and prescription drug coverage, prompting warnings of “junk insurance” from consumer advocates. Supporters say the new... Read more →
