  • Stand up to Trump: No oil drilling off New Jersey's coast | EditorialStand up to Trump: No oil drilling off New Jersey's coast | Editorial

    It's a non-starter that both parties agree on. Watch video This is an era of abundant energy and growing environmental risks, so the Trump Administration - which has mastered the dark art of compromising the practical future for the political present - has decided it would be the perfect time to hang a massive choker of oil rigs around the country's neck. The president has proposed opening up more than 90 percent of the waters surrounding the continental U.S. - that's 100 million acres - to offshore drilling. Currently, drilling is banned in 94 percent of the outer continental shelf, because our leaders are well-practiced in kill-the-drill efforts, and most politicians from our state - Democrats and Republicans alike, including Gov. Christie - have already told Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke that his proposal is inherently reckless and potentially catastrophic. These voices must only become louder, because this fight is about our economy, our future, and the stewardship of our cherished coastline. Sure, it's a Nimby issue. Proof arrived a few days after Zinke's announcement, when he exempted Florida from drilling - presumably because President Trump realized that a spill off Palm Beach would be very bad for business at Mar-A-Lago.  It was also a sloppy kiss for Florida Gov. Rick Scott - a drilling advocate even after the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon disaster desecrated his Gulf coast beaches, whose upcoming Senate campaign will likely crash if he continues to put black sludge ahead of the voting public.  Jersey takes on Big Oil, and Jersey wins. Thanks, Obama | Editorial So the Florida leases are already off the board because Zinke says "its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver." Only an inexcusable ignorance would lead him to believe that this is unique to Florida. The Jersey Shore has a $44 billion tourism industry, which supports a half-million jobs either directly or indirectly. That is 10 percent of our workforce. It is home to more than $700 billion in coastal properties. Our commercial fishing industry supports another 50,000 jobs and generates $8 billion annually, and our shores are home to one of the largest recreational fishing industries in the nation. All of that would be imperiled by one spill off our coast. Meanwhile, all the risk is on the shore communities, and all the rewards go to Big Oil. Oil drilling off the Atlantic coast is a bad idea | Editorial As Sen. Robert Menendez put it, the Zinke plan "is a gift for corporate polluters at the expense of our coastal economies."  No doubt, the proposal is merely the opening wager in a byzantine process - rigs may not pop up for another decade. But it's clear where all this is heading. Just two weeks ago, congressional Republicans gave oil companies a $500 million tax break. That money - generated through a 9 cents-per-barrel tax on crude oil - was the main source of revenue for the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, which has been around since 1986.  This program that helped government respond quickly to oil accidents on land or offshore. But now the GOP has allowed the tax to expire. So if there is ever another incident like the Deepwater Horizon tragedy - the largest marine spill in history, which caused $17 billion in damage to natural resources - it will be up to American taxpayers to clean up the mess left behind, not the oil companies themselves.  Other regulations put in place after that Gulf disaster, such as lowering liability caps, also were rolled back recently. Moral of the story: It's a great time to be in the oil business, now that it has a champion in a president who at any time is willing to take a drunken swerve away from common sense.

  • Hey Trump, N.J. also has a Shore, so don't drill for oil here | EditorialHey Trump, N.J. also has a Shore, so don't drill for oil here | Editorial

    A five-year plan released earlier this month under Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's watch would allow offshore drilling in more than 90 percent of the outer continental shelf, which includes areas of the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans. News that Florida appears to have gotten a pass from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke while the Garden State's Atlantic Coast will likely be open for drilling has members of New Jersey's congressional delegation fuming. A five-year plan released earlier this month under Zinke's watch would allow offshore drilling in more than 90 percent of the outer continental shelf, which includes areas of the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans. The plan drew immediate outrage from governors and members of Congress representing coastal states - for good reason. As U.S. Reps. Chris Smith (R-4th) and Frank LoBiondo (R-2nd) point out in a letter, the proposal poses significant economic and environmental risks to local marine wildlife - the lifeblood of commercial fishermen - while threatening a tourism industry that depends heavily on clean beaches. Chris Christie and Phil Murphy join together to fight Trump Three dozen Democratic senators - including our own Robert Menendez and Cory Booker - shot off a letter as well, in essence pleading with the feds not to tamper with a valuable natural resource to satisfy the cravings of oil magnates. Equally strong opposition came from the governors of New York, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, California, Oregon and Washington, as well as New Jersey. But Zinke so far has had ears only for Florida's Gov. Rick Scott. After a meeting with the GOP governor, Zinke announced he's decided to exempt the state of Walt Disney, orange groves and alligators - and let's not forget Mar-a-Lago - from the new open-drilling policy. "I support the governor's position that Florida is unique and its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver," Zinke said in a message announcing his decision. So what are we in New Jersey - chopped liver? It may be just a coincidence that Florida went big for Donald Trump in 2016, and that Scott is a buddy of the president's. It may also be a coincidence that Scott is expected to run for a U.S. Senate seat later this year against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson. Meanwhile, New Jersey and other states equally affected by the expanded drilling have are justified to view the administration as playing favorites. But the nation's coastal waters are too valuable to be used as political bargaining chips, and Zinke has inadvertently exposed the Department of the Interior to court action for his seemingly arbitrary - and indefensible - decision to bestow his blessing only on the Sunshine State. U.S. Rep Frank Pallone Jr. (D-6th), the leading Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, summed up the injustice in a few choice words. "Florida," he said, "should not be given special status because the president is friends with Gov. Scott." Bookmark NJ.com/Opinion. Follow on Twitter @NJ_Opinion and find NJ.com Opinion on Facebook.

    Jurors returned a verdict after about an hour of deliberation. An Atlantic City attorney was convicted Friday on charges that he pursued sexual conduct with an underage girl over several years. David Alcantara  Prosecutors said David Alcantara, 59, began endangering the girl in 2005, when she was 10, and continued through 2012. The conduct included touching her and repeatedly walking in on her in the shower. She came forward in 2012, and the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office Crimes Against Children Unit started an investigation. Jurors found Alcantara guilty after about an hour of deliberations on Friday, the prosecutor's office announced Monday. Alcantara will stay in the Atlantic County jail before his sentencing, which is scheduled for late February. He faces up to 10 years in prison and may have to register as a sex offender, the office said. In 2016, he was cleared of charges that he sexually assaulted another girl between 2006 and 2010.

  • New day for South Jersey boys basketball on NJ.comNew day for South Jersey boys basketball on NJ.com

    New day for S.J. boys hoops on NJ.com NJ.com has always covered South Jersey boys basketball. But not like this. I was mid-way through a fulfilling career covering South Jersey HS sports for a Camden County newspaper when things came to a screeching halt. We’ll spare you the details - if you follow South Jersey HS sports closely, you probably already know them. Let’s say everything took a sudden turn for the better - for me and for the whole South Jersey HS sports scene - when NJ Advance Media/NJ.com posted an opening for a high school sports reporter position in December. A few days later, there was a meeting of the minds, and before long my career was back on track - and importantly, South Jersey HS hoops coverage was headed for a big boost. There’s nothing like South Jersey high school basketball. From the high-intensity games on a daily basis to those cozy, nostalgic gymnasiums scattered throughout the region; from the sounds of bouncing balls and squeaking sneakers to the roar of student sections, it all helps make for an incredible couple of months. My new mission is to be the voice for South Jersey hoops within the collective statewide mindset of a great reporting team that now also includes one of the statesmen of N.J. HS basketball, Mike Kinney. The goal is to elevate coverage of the movers and shakers, highlight those who make the game great. We’ll also continue to hit the airways each Saturday with a contributing segment on local radio, adding analysis and some well thought out opinion. From my perspective, it’s important that the people in Jersey City, Monmouth or Linden know what’s happening with teams from Cherry Hill, Hammonton, Atlantic City and elsewhere. It’s important for South Jersey players, moms and dads, grandparents to be able to turn on the computer, click a few links and find important and entertaining information. The recipe is in place and we’ve already started to work with the ingredients. We spent time at the Seagull Classic watching Wildwood Catholic against Lenape, Timber Creek battling Linden and Camden Catholic face off with Atlantic City. On Thursday, it was off to Medford for a Top 20 showdown between Shawnee and Timber Creek. More great games and stories are certainly on the horizon waiting to be told. As one of the newest additions to the NJ Advance Media high school sports staff, I’m looking forward to increasing exposure and showing what South Jersey boys basketball is all about. But, South Jersey hoops community, YOU have a role to play - that includes ADs, coaches, players and parents. We have a feeling South Jersey is under-represented in NJ.com’s many statewide lists of top teams and players. That can’t change without you. It starts with the simplest thing – reporting a complete box score. It’s important for coaches or their trusted helpers to take a few extra minutes after every game and provide as much information as possible. You know how to do it - or if you don’t, reach out to me and I’ll get you help. People love numbers and they enjoy seeing their names. If coaches and stats people do their job, more kids will have a chance at making the weekly list of leaders or see their accomplishments noticed in top-player pieces or a hot-takes nugget on a Friday morning. Players and parents - let coaches and ADs know if your team’s stats are slow, incomplete or otherwise lacking on NJ.com. Great moments are going to happen. If you don’t see me at your game or if you have an idea you believe is worth exploring, take the time to reach out. Send me an email so your thoughts don’t remain in the dark. So, what are you waiting for? Make sure to follow along on Twitter (@kminnicksports) and visit our website early each day for the latest developments. Heck, come back often. There’s always something new and exciting to quench your thirst. It’s an exciting time to be a South Jersey boys basketball fan, and I look forward to enjoying the ride as much as you do.

Friday marked the grand opening of Hidden Sands Brewing Company in Egg Harbor Township, a brewery which went to great lengths (and depths) to get the best New Jersey ingredients, including the water. The brewery drilled 800 feet, through two aquifers, to create a well at the Atlantic City Sands Aquifer, which, according to the company's website, is estimated to be 30,000 years old and gives their brews the purest possible starting point. The country's best beer is from N.J., says top beer magazine Hidden Sands launches with a diverse lineup of beers, featuring 800-Foot Pils, Sandy Blue Pale Ale, Pump Handle (a pale ale), First Drop (a breakfast-style Baltic porter) and their Unfathomable Depths IPA Series, which includes 107 Foot IPA, 447 Foot IPA, and 608 Foot double IPA. Luke Lindsey was named the company's brewmaster back in October, having spent more than 12 years in the industry, including serving as brewmaster at Victory, Southern Tier and Lagunitas. He was also a brewing supervisor at Samuel Adams. Hidden Sands held a soft opening last Thursday, but this weekend's grand opening festivities will include food trucks, tastings and tours.

    Seven casinos won $2.66 billion in 2017 Atlantic City's casinos saw their gambling revenue increase in 2017 for the second year in a row. Figures released Friday by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement show the seven casinos won $2.66 billion in 2017. That's an increase of 2.2 percent over 2016. The past two years have been encouraging for Atlantic City's surviving casinos after a decade of revenue declines that saw five of the city's 12 casinos shut down, with 11,000 jobs lost. Atlantic City could be on verge of major revival in 2018 The remaining casinos have regained their balance in a slimmed-down market. The casinos were greatly helped by $245 million in internet gambling winnings, an increase of nearly 25 percent over 2016. The Borgata won more than $800 million from gamblers last year, by far the most in the city.
