Results of South Amboy's Mayoral Primary head to court Monday
     A hearing is scheduled before a judge in New Brunswick Monday on a challenge to the result of South Amboy's Democratic mayoral primary.  It's been nearly two months since the June third primary, but the result is still up in the air.  The final count had incumbent Fred Henry - who ran off the party line - beating party-backed candidate John O'Connell by three votes:  580-to-577.  Since it was so close, O'Connell requested a recount, and the result was the same.  But earlier this month, O'Connell decided to officially contest the results... challenging the validity of some votes.  For example, elections officials say two Republicans were apparently allowed to vote, even though it was a Democratic primary.  How long the challenge will take is unknown, but whoever wins will likely win the general election in November, since there will be no Republican on the ballot.

It's now up to Governor Christie to sign beach smoking ban in NJ
     To smoke or not to smoke?  That is the question smoldering on New Jersey's beaches as the state awaits a decision by Governor Christie on a bill that would greatly restrict lighting up on the sand.  A bill passed in June would ban smoking on public beaches but would give towns the option of setting aside 15 percent of their beaches as smoking areas if they want.  Lawmakers originally wanted a total smoking ban for beaches but eventually compromised.  Several shore towns already have total smoking bans of their own.  Those would still be allowed under the new bill.  Nonsmokers say having secondhand smoke blown into their face by coastal winds is gross.  But smokers say there's plenty of room for everyone to get along on the sands.
