How gambling has changed over time in New Jersey

Source: Unsplash Gambling laws across the US are changing rapidly. As states realize the lucrative revenue streams of the online iGaming industry, many are repealing state laws to allow this form of entertainment into their borders. Below, we discuss the history of gambling laws in New Jersey. Online Gambling The state was way ahead in its adoption of online gambling laws and ensuring that those who partook in it were safe and used reputable sources. Its first bill passed in 2011, stating that New Jersey residents who were over the age of 21 could place bets online. This was followed by lengthy legal proceedings discussing how and where bets took place. Mainly, they focused on where the bet was made. Did the bet originate from the computer terminal where it was placed, or at the server where it was processed? Without these early wranglings and discussions, it is doubtful that... Read more →

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (November 8, 2021)--During our walk today, we saw two lovely cats on Stites Avenue near the railroad tracks and a block from the Lane Avenue Playground. It was 10:30 AM when we saw them. The cat in the top photo was a dark brown with a white and brown face. The cat in the bottom photo was white with brown patches. She was wearing a collar. Both were friendly and well groomed. Neither one was afraid of Peyton, who wanted to play with them. Such a beautiful day, maybe their owner just let them out for their daily walk. The white cat, who was laying in the middle of street, nearly got hit by a car. Read more →

Get Hold of a Reliable Plastic Surgeon for an Early Facelift

(December 19, 2020)--As people age, one experiences the wearying effects on the skin. With wrinkles, fine lines, sagging of the face, and loss of elasticity, one can opt for a facelift. If you think you are too young for a facelift, it is a good indication, and this is the right time for you to explore the options. A facelift by a reliable plastic surgeon can aid a patient as young as forty to turn back the clock and maintain a youthful appearance. Age is Just a Number Since every person ages differently, do not focus on how old you are. The factors that influence our age include our genetics, lifestyle, diet, and environmental influence. A forty-year-old lady with healthy habits might look ten years younger than her actual age. However, aging is a process that we cannot halt. Therefore, plastic surgery experts have facelifts that help you eliminate all... Read more →

Peyton and Me Meandering Through the Streets of South Jersey (Brooklawn Chapter II)

CORRECTED William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews PEYTON ( 28, 2020)--Daniel Boggs recently submitted a Letter to the Editor titled "Are The Communities of Gloucester City/Brooklawn Turning Into Slums?". Although we agree with Mr. Boggs about some neighborhoods in Gloucester City having a housing and trash problem the only thing we found walking through Brooklawn today were two derelict cars missing license plates and NJ inspection stickers. Derelict cars CNBNews photo We liked how the Borough placed a tarp with a woodsy scene on one side of the public works property.

Memories of Gloucester City: Do You know Where This Is?

GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ--(October 19, 2020)--Frank Devlin needs help identifying the location in the attached picture. The event is the 1930 American Legion Parade. The man on the horse is his grandfather J. Frank Devlin. He also appears on this site in an October 20, 2019 post. The notes on the bottom corner and at the top of the picture were made by my father Jack Devlin. I cannot make out the sign in the window of the store in the background, but the store window has a banner at the top that might read “Marvel Ice cream”. He would also like to know if this was a Memorial Day or 4th of July parade and what the route was? Editor's Note: I think the building is The Devigler Candy/News Shop located at Monmouth and Champion Road.

Detroit Free Press Is An Absolute Disgrace

January 2, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a news story in the January 2 Detroit Free Press: By Bill Donohue | The Catholic League Let's say you are a reporter who detests the Catholic Church (there are more than a few out there), and would like to do an article that reflects badly on it. You come across a story that may qualify, but it is rather routine: it is about high school boys acting inappropriately. Not satisfied that it will really put the Church against the wall, you decide to enhance the piece by trotting out a story about a noted Catholic public figure (Brett Kavanaugh) who was accused of acting offensively when he was in high school. It happened decades ago in some other part of the country, and the charges were never corroborated by anyone, but that doesn't matter. It can be made to... Read more →

Since the 50's that corner has been used for a restaurant. Originally the property was owned by the Ponizio's family. The owners of the Metro Diner closed the popular dining site Monday, June 4. The Metro opened in 2009. In 2013 the rumors began to circulate that the diner had been sold to Wawa. The gossip, mostly coming from Metro employees, off the record, surfaced again in 2015 and again in December 2016. In 2015 the Metro was to have sold for $14 million.

Travel: All in for All-Inclusive Fun? Let's go to Cancun, Mexico!

By Nicole Pensiero | CNBNewsnet (CNBNewsnet)--There's a first time for everything, as they say. And finally, it was time to give an all-inclusive vacation a try. Aside from ocean cruising, I'd never been very interested in all-inclusive travel, imaging long buffet lines, watered-down drinks and sub-par food. But when pondering a good getaway for my 60th birthday, the idea of a four-night jaunt to Mexico (with five longtime friends) seemed ideal. And an all-inclusive resort, selected online, seemed our best value. We opted for the Mexican Caribbean for a few reasons: half of our group ad never been “south of the border” and were eager to visit Mexico, and everyone agreed it would be a great cost-savings over some of the other island destinations we talked about. The resort we ended up selecting -- the 4-star, 340-room Royal Sands, is one of six properties owned by Royal Resorts, a pioneer... Read more →

10 Staggering Photos Of An Abandoned WWII Bunker Hiding In South Jersey

There are abandoned places all over New Jersey, some of which are truly fascinating. For prime exploring, many head to the Pine Barrens. The woods are filled with remnants of former milling and mining towns, several of which are hidden and others which are well-preserved attractions (like Batsto Village). However, you can find abandoned barns up in Sussex County, abandoned factories in Essex County, and abandoned bunkers in Cape May County…formerly vibrant buildings become nothing as the years go by. While the bunker I’m referring to may not be considered hidden to locals, it’s certainly an unexpected surprise for many visitors. Exactly how much of the bunker you can see at any given time depends on the tides. This is Cape May's iconic WWII bunker, Battery 223. When it was built in the 1940s, it was approximately 900 feet from the shore. Flickr/he who shall CONTINUE via Read more →
