Homelessness is on the rise in New Jersey. On Jan. 28, a statewide point-in-time count of the homeless, known as NJ Counts 2014, found 13,900 homeless men, women and children in the Garden State. That was an increase of 1,898 people, or 15.8 percent, compared to last year's count.
Bitter Arctic air continues to plague the Garden State with unbearable temperatures. Just think - just six months ago, we were all complaining about 90 degree weather and a series of heatwaves during the Summer season. Now, it's a total 180.
