Bound Brook voters split on school referenda; South River's question voted down
Voters in Bound Brook have approved one of two school referenda on the ballot, while South River voters said "no" to their question. In Bound Brook, voters approved Question One, about spending $27 million to renovate the district's schools, as well as buy two former parochial schools to expand capacity.  But they turned down Question Two, which would have borrowed $3 million for a Community Physical Education Wellness Center.  The first question's approval means no tax increase.  The state will pay for about 60-percent, and the rest is money that had been spent on debt service, now coming to an end.  School officials have said buying the LaMonte Annex - which it currently uses - and the old St. Joseph school - which is vacant - will allow them to expand Pre-K offerings.  Currently, it serves only about 72 students due to space limitations. Meanwhile, voters in South River turned down that district's $10.1 million dollar referendum.  The defeated plan would not have led to a tax increase, while renovating all the district's buildings, and adding some classrooms to handle increased enrollment.

Quinnipiac Poll: Christie would lose to Hillary in his home state in 2016 presidential race
If it came down to Republican Chris Christie versus Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, the Governor would get beaten in his own state.  At least according to the latest Quinnipiac University Poll out Wednesday, which finds Hillary leading Christie by a 50-to-40-percent margin among Garden State voters.  Poll Director Mickey Carroll says it has little to do with Bridgegate.  "It's women's votes that do it," says poll director Mickey Caroll, "a 20-percent bulge among women voters."  But the ten-point difference overall is the closest margin against any Republican candidate.  The poll finds Hillary Clinton would beat former Florida Governor Jeb Bush by 21-points - 53-to-32 percent, more than double the margin over Christie - and she'd beat Kentucky U.S Senator Rand Paul by even more, 55-to-31 percent.

PATH rides are more expensive today
Passengers need another quarter to ride the PATH trains between New Jersey and New York.  Single-ride tickets increased by 25 cents to $2.75 beginning Wednesday.  A two-trip ticket costs $5.50.  The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says passengers can save by purchasing multi-ride tickets. A 7-day unlimited ticket now costs $29 and riders pay $89 for a 30-day unlimited ticket.  The agency announced in 2011 that single PATH fares would increase at a rate of a quarter per year to help fund a 10-year capital plan. The projects include extending PATH to Newark Liberty airport, replacing the Harrison PATH station and renovating the Grove Street station.
