The driver of a small utility truck is dead after a rollover crash in Camden County.

It happened before 12 a.m. Saturday at Chew Road and Sandy Causeway in Waterford Township.

Action News is told the small truck went out of control and flipped over in a farm field.

When police arrived they found the body of the victim under the vehicle.

There was no immediate word what may have caused that driver to lose control

Kellogg's Honey Smacks Cereal Recall


Three people have been sickened in New Jersey now that a popular breakfast cereal has been recalled because of salmonella concerns, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Kellogg's is recalling Honey Smacks cereal in 31 states because the popular breakfast food is now linked to a salmonella outbreak that has sickened 73 people, according to the CDC. Twenty-four people have been hospitalized.
"Do not eat recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal," the CDC warned. "Check your home for it and throw it away, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund."

Consuming products contaminated with salmonella can result in serious illness, health experts warn. It can also produce serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy individuals infected with salmonella can suffer fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, it can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

The Kellogg Company announced the recall on Thursday. The recall covers 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal with a "best if used by" date from June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019. The "best if used by" date is on the box top.
The recalled 15.3 oz. Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal has a UPC code of 38000 39103. The recalled 23.0 oz. Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal has a UPC code of 38000 14810. The UPC code is on the bottom of the box.
"Even if some of the cereal was eaten and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away or return it for a refund," the CDC warned.
If you store cereal in a container and have discarded the packaging with the codes, just throw away any Honey Smacks cereal, the CDC advised.
Be sure to thoroughly wash the container "to remove harmful germs."

Illnesses began in early March and have been reported through late May. Of the 73 people infected with the outbreak strain, 24 were hospitalized, the CDC said. Illnesses were reported in 31 states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, California and more.
"In interviews, ill people answered questions about the foods they ate and other exposures in the week before they became ill. Thirty of 39 people interviewed reported eating cold cereal. In interviews, 14 people specifically reported eating Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal," information from the CDC said

Inspector General's Report Released


FBI Director Christopher Wray said on Thursday that the FBI will "hold employees accountable for any potential misconduct" in response to a newly released Justice Department watchdog report.
"I take this report very seriously and we accept its findings and recommendations," Wray said. "The report does identify errors of judgment, violations of, or even disregard for, policy and decisions that at the very least with the benefit of hindsight were not the best choices."
He added that "we're going to hold employees accountable for any potential misconduct."
The report, which was made public Thursday, rebuked then-FBI Director James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. It concluded that Comey's actions were "insubordinate," but did not find that he had been motivated by political bias.

 Wray said during a news conference, "It's also important to note what the inspector general did not find. This report did not find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the investigation under review."

91 Arrested in NJ ICE Operation


 

A murderer, a pedophile, rapists, gang members and many others from towns across New Jersey were among 91 taken into custody during a 5-day operation conducted last week by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in New Jersey.
Those arrested also included a Salvadoran national in the country illegally who has an Interpol warrant for being a member of MS-13, as well as for trafficking in firearms and narcotics, according to an ICE news release.
The operation targeted at-large criminal aliens, illegal re-entrants and other immigration violators. The operation was supported by ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) New Jersey Field Office, according to the release.
Of those arrested during the operation, which was spearheaded by ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), 77 percent were convicted criminals and 70 percent of them had prior felony convictions.
"The remarkable results of our officers and law enforcement partners highlight ICE's ongoing commitment to public safety," said John Tsoukaris, field office director of ERO Newark. "This operation focuses on the arrest of individuals convicted of serious crimes and are a threat to public safety. Because of the targeted efforts of these professional officers, there are 91 fewer criminals in our communities."


These individuals will go through removal proceedings before an immigration judge. For those under a final order of removal, arrangements will be made to remove them from the U.S.
"U.S. Customs and Border Protection is extremely proud to have assisted in this operation," said Frank Russo, Acting Director New York Field Office. "It is through collaborative efforts that law enforcement agencies can combat illegal acts and apprehend criminals who pose a threat to the Homeland."

These individuals were arrested in the following counties in New Jersey: Atlantic (3), Bergen (5), Burlington (3), Camden (3), Cumberland (6), Essex (19), Hudson (15), Mercer (7), Middlesex (7), Monmouth (1), Passaic (10), Union (8), and Warren (2). Also, one individual was arrested in New Castle county in Delaware and one individual was arrested in Bronx county in New York.

Those busted range from age 19 to 78 years old and all were previously convicted of a variety of offenses. Some of the convictions included sexual assault on a minor, child abuse, possession of narcotics, distribution of narcotics, money laundering, DUI, fraud, domestic violence, theft, possession of a weapon, burglary, larceny, aggravated assault, aggravated assault on law enforcement, resisting arrest, endangering the welfare of a child, kidnapping and illegal reentry.

 The individuals arrested throughout New Jersey were nationals of Anguilla (1), Bangladesh (1), Cameroon (1), Colombia (4), Cuba (3), Dominican Republic (14), Ecuador (4), Egypt (1), El Salvador (10), Ghana (1), Guatemala (3), Guinea (1), Guyana (2), Haiti (3), Honduras (4), Jamaica (3), Korea (2), Macedonia (2), Mexico (12), Nicaragua (1), Pakistan (2), Philippines (4), Peru (4), Poland (1), Spain (1), St. Lucia (1), Trinidad (3), and Venezuela (2).

Felon Voting Ruled Unconstitutional in Virginia


Virginia‘s highest court has ruled that Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe‘s action restoring the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons was unconstitutional and illegal, according to Fox News.
On Friday, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled that the governor overstepped his authority and should not have allowed tens of thousands of felons the right to vote. The GOP is hailing the ruling as a major victory for the rule of law, and argues that it could have a snowball effect across the country in other left-leaning states.
In a 4-3 decision, the high court ordered the state to cancel the registration of roughly 11,300 felons who signed up to vote after McAuliffe’s April 2016 executive order. His ruling allowed many felons to vote in the 2016 presidential election, which happened to be a state Hillary Clinton won.

NJ Legislation presented in February 2018

New Jersey Democrats proposed legislation on Monday that would allow people to vote while they are in prison, a move that could expand the franchise to about 100,000 people in the state.
New Jersey, like several other states, does not allow felons to vote after their conviction, including while they are on parole or probation. If the bill becomes law, New Jersey would join just two other states ― Maine and Vermont ― in allowing any felon, including murderers, to vote while they are in jail and after they have been released.
The bill would allow prisoners to vote by mail-in ballot in the district where they lived prior to being incarcerated.

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.
President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and sincere exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.  President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:


  1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.–DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
  2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
  3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
  4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Having acknowledged that the U.S.–DPRK summit—the first in history—was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un commit to implement the stipulations in this joint statement fully and expeditiously.  The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the U.S.–DPRK summit.
President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new U.S.–DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.

National Documentary Contest


 Excerpts
Egg Harbor Township and the Chartertech High School for the Performing Arts in Somers Point are the only two schools in South Jersey who had their film treatments accepted into a nationwide contest asking students to make a documentary about the cultural, biographical and historical musical heritage of their hometowns.
The New Jersey School Boards Association and TeachRock.org is sponsoring the "Sonic Highway"-type film festival.
"Sonic Highway" was the name of a 2014 album and HBO series from Dave Grohl and his rock band Foo Fighters that explored the musical identity of eight different cities.
Four documentaries will be coming out of South Jersey.

 Besides Nardeen Saleep's documentary on the Billy Walton Band, Egg Harbor Township High School sophomores Joanie Daigle, 16, and Michael Le, 16, will create short nonfiction films on alternative rock band The Secondside and radio station WZBZ-FM 99.3, respectively.

 Leanna Mullen, ( from Mulllica Twp.) Egg Harbor Township TV station manager, said her three students will be members of the school's first Communications Academy graduating class in 2020. They will gain valuable field experience by producing their documentaries, she said.

NJ Legalized Sport Betting


Excerpts
Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation Monday to regulate and tax legalized sports betting in New Jersey opening the door for Atlantic City casinos and the state's racetracks to begin taking wagers as soon as this week.

The state Senate and Assembly unanimously approved the legislation June 7. The bill was passed following a nearly four-year legal battle with five major sports leagues who challenged New Jersey's efforts to legalize sports gambling all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. On May 14, the court found the 1992 federal ban on sports betting to be unconstitutional.
New Jersey spent more than $8.7 million on legal fees fighting the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and NCAA.

Sports betting will be available to individuals 21 or older. The bill prohibits athletes, coaches, referees and other people with potential influence or access to nonpublic information regarding sporting events from placing bets on sporting events overseen by the league in which they participate. Additionally, wagers cannot be placed on high school sporting events or collegiate athletic events taking place in New Jersey or involving New Jersey teams.

Motor Vehicle Commission Phone Scam


If someone calls you claiming to be from the MVC — hang up!
“People are getting phone calls from someone claiming they’re from the Motor Vehicle Commission and telling them that their license or registration has been suspended and that they owe money to restore that license or registration,” says Sue Fulton, New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission chief administrator.
She said it’s very important for people to understand that “the Motor Vehicle Commission is not going to call you on the phone. If you have a problem with your license or registration, you are going to get a mailed notice to that effect.”
She said the scammers tell people that they have to send money or provide their credit card number to have their driving privileges restored.
She’s recommending you report the scam call immediately by going online to njmvc.gov.

 “We can check and ensure that your license and registration continue to be valid but also we can track these kinds of calls and let other people know so that nobody falls prey to this kind of scam," she said.
“Many of these phone calls are Spanish language so we’re particularly concerned about our Latino community.”

In addition to going online to report this kind of scam, you can also call the MVC suspension and restoration information line at 609-292-7500.

NJ Tax Hike Woes


With Gov. Phil Murphy continuing to push for $1.5 billion in new taxes, a new analysis finds raising those taxes would make Jersey’s budget woes worse.
New Jersey must have a balanced budget in place by June 30 or the state will shut down.
Michele Siekerka, president and CEO of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association, said outmigration has been a growing concern in the Garden State but new data shows “New Jersey’s net loss of adjusted gross income is nearly $25 billion over the last 12 years.’

She noted the net loss for tax year 2015-16 was $3.5 billion, considerably higher than the annual rate of loss of $2.1 billion over the past 12 years, an indicator “our situation isn’t getting better, but potentially getting worse.”
She pointed out if New Jersey’s corporate business tax is raised from 9 to 12 percent as proposed for companies with a net income of more than $1 million, Jersey would tie Iowa for having the highest CBT rate in the nation, and 2,400 companies that generate billions of dollars in revenue would be affected.
“We’re concerned about that becoming an issue for outmigration, or lack of job growth,” said Siekerka, whose industry group is often critical of tax hikes and other regulations that impose costs on businesses.

“If the corporate business tax is raised we can bet that CBT surcharge will only incentivize our larger corporations to consider expanding outside the state of New Jersey.”
The analysis shows a higher tax on millionaires would be harmful because “our rate of growth of millionaires is slower than others in the region."
Siekerka pointed out if millionaires pack up and leave, that means companies may close, putting the people working in those companies out of a job, or working in another state.
She said any time we talk about raising taxes in the state of New Jersey, “it causes businesses to freeze their hands on their wallets, step back from the planning and investment they were thinking about and to think about other options, and those options include not growing in the state or leaving the state.”

NJ Marijuana Legislation Introduced


TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Recreational marijuana would be legalized and the medical cannabis program would be expanded under new legislation being introduced in New Jersey.
Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney and state Sen. Nicholas Scutari announced the new bills Friday.
The legislation comes as Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy pushes for legalizing recreational pot as part of a campaign promise. His fiscal year 2019 budget assumes marijuana will be legalized and banks on $60 million in revenues.

Under the legislation, people 21 and over could possess, buy, use or transport an ounce or less of marijuana. Towns retain the right to create their own ordinances governing sales, with a 180-day window to bar sales.
Another bill expands the state's medical marijuana program and allows any health-care practitioner permitted to prescribe controlled substances to write prescriptions.

Plea Deal Hearing for Imran Awan 7/3

 Excerpts
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan granted a request from federal prosecutors to set a plea hearing on July 3 for Imran Awan — the former IT aide — and his wife, Hina Alv. Awan is in big trouble in the “espionage” case, and the hacker is begging for a plea deal.
The filing from federal prosecutors didn’t reveal any details about the terms or conditions of the agreement, but said the two parties are currently working to reach a deal in the explosive case involving former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz and other top House Democrats.

Awan, who previously served as Wasserman Shultz’s IT aide, was arrested earlier this year on charges of financing terror back home in Pakistan. The specific charges against Awan also are not clear, as he has not been charged for breaching one-in-five House Democrats’ systems in Congress, stealing equipment and taking it home, or any of his other illegal actions.
As such, many believe that the government will offer him a favorable plea deal in exchange for information on Wasserman Shultz and other democrats who may have been aware of his hacking, illegal activity, and money laundering.
Awan controlled the network servers and managed office IT for democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and others.

  Awan was exposed more than a year ago for his alleged illegal activity on Congressional data networks. He has been accused of bank fraud and money laundering connected to terror groups in Pakistan. Awan was a senior IT aide for Wasserman Shultz until he was found guilty last year of wiring money to terrorists.

NJ New Gun Laws

 Excerpts
TRENTON — A half-dozen bills designed to further tighten New Jersey’s gun control efforts were passed by the Senate Thursday and sent to Gov. Phil Murphy, who said he will sign them quickly.
The bills would set out new rules for seizing guns from people deemed to be dangerous, reduce the allowable ammunition magazine size from 15 rounds to 10, require background checks for private gun sales and put a regulation into law putting a strict threshold to be met to receive a gun-carry permit.
Sweeney said he didn’t know if more gun-related bills would be on the Statehouse agenda.

“We’ve done a lot. Listen, it’s New Jersey, who knows?” Sweeney said. “I would like to look at our gun laws and be fair to lawful gun owners, too. Because, you know, the people that aren’t breaking the law are the ones that we’re passing a lot of these laws on, to be honest with you.”
