    In NJ, the bear hunt has received more notoriety and scandal than any other in the last 5 yrs. In addition, the black bear hunt total has not been as high as it was for the past century than in one yr.

    In one section of Warren county NJ, there is one proven site where George Washington actually slept.

    The tocks island project in Blairstown, an idea to improve flooding was scrapped after "buying"out surrounding land for it.
    In addition, the project had been reviewed almost 30 yrs later, but was again scrapped.
    These lands, including my grandparent's, cannot be repurchased.
