Votes Are In: Christie Is Father of the Year

He has told crowds gathered at his town-hall-style events that he has to leave on time to make it home for family dinner night. He goes to his kids' baseball and basketball games. He follows his son's travel hockey team out of state. Chris Christie's been doing all that while being governor, becoming a possible presidential contender and now dealing with the biggest crisis of his political career.

Drug Sting Goes Bad

It is a linchpin of modern-day suburban economics: the strip mall with its sprawling parking lot that offers consumers in cars access to almost any type of service. In Garfield, where an undercover Paramus police officer was shot Tuesday afternoon, the Passaic Street shopping center has a big-box retail store, a national restaurant chain and a discount department store.

Those subpoenas came as another key figure in the controversy -- Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer -- said she kept quiet about her claims of political retribution by Christie's administration because the governor was a former U.S. attorney and she felt that office...

Christie Pushes Leaner Pensions, Arbitration Caps

In a somber and sometimes scolding speech, Governor Christie urged the state's business community to help him with two proposals that face resistance in the Democratic-controlled Legislature: Trimming public employee pension benefits and renewing expired caps on arbitration awards for police and firefighters. As he has several times recently, Christie used his speech at the annual Washington dinner organized by the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce to compare the state's financial situation to t...
