Ridgewood NJ, The Ridgewood Health Department reminds you that even though Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is officially observed in September, it should be observed every month throughout the year.

Men wonder if they should be screened for prostate cancer. Before arriving at a decision to be screened or not, it is important that men talk with their doctor about their personal risk for prostate cancer and their options. Men should learn about the possible benefits and harms of screening so that they can make the best choice for them.
Cancer screening means looking for cancer before it causes symptoms. The goal of screening for prostate cancer is to find cancers that may be at high risk for spreading if not treated, and to find them early before they spread. However, most prostate cancers grow slowly or not at all.

Jack DeLorenzo for Bergen County Sheriff

As I have been out campaigning, meeting with law enforcement personnel, elected officials and taxpayers I am delivering one very important message that I want to share with you.
I will approach the position of sheriff from the unique perspective of having been both a career law enforcement officer and also a board of education trustee and the mayor of a municipality in Bergen County.

I know first-hand that money is tight for municipal governments and the more that the Sheriff’s Department can be an asset to all to all 70 towns in the county the better the public will be served.
As sheriff I will make sure the sheriff’s department will serve all municipalities and all residents. If you have ideas on how the sheriff’s department can help your community, let me know.
Thanks
Jack

Today I spoke to the same reporter and she confirmed that she has also reached out to NJDEP and NJ Department of Agriculture for comments. Immediately after she spoke to them Roy Otto from Bergen County Soil Conservation Department called me.

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Trenton NJ, Attorney General’s Office runs cover for Murphy Administration and Hudson prosecutors office dropping the ball on Alvarez rape allegations.

Statement of Communications Director Sharon Lauchaire :

The Attorney General’s Office has well-established procedures for addressing conflict-of-interest issues involving County Prosecutor’s Offices. These procedures apply not only to cases involving actual conflicts of interest, but also to those involving perceived or potential conflicts. Generally speaking, if a County Prosecutor believes that there is or may be a conflict of interest in a particular criminal matter, he or she may request that the Division of Criminal Justice (DCJ) “supersede” – or assume responsibility for – that matter. If DCJ agrees to supersede, then DCJ either handles the case itself or assigns it to another County Prosecutor’s Office.

This afternoon the Cherokee Nation released a statement that said in part that DNA tests are useless in determining tribal citizenship and people using DNA to connect themselves to Cherokee Nation is inappropriate.
