I-Team: Cash-Strapped Newark School
District Spends Thousands on Take-Out

NBC New York, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/9/2014 10:06:47 AM

Budget cuts and tight resources plague Newark public schools, but even in these tough economic times, the Newark Public Schools District has approved tens of thousands of dollars a month in spending on take-out food and catering. An I-Team review of district spending over a 15-month period ending in May found that Newark administrators spent more than $330,000, or an average of about $22,000 a month on food from places like Sandwiches Unlimited, SuzyQue´s BBQ, and King’s Family Restaurant and Catering. This, as the district faces a $42 million budget gap. In the spring, hundreds of Newark high school

Like so many brilliant, intellectual lefties there is no connection between the stuff they want and the stuff they need with the dollars they have. Kinda the same as Detroiter´s water problems.

Most people with access to OPM, don´t give a flip about where it comes from as long as it keeps coming. The other end of entitlement.

Memphis, TN - An Oklahoma college student was drugged, robbed, and beaten during a weekend trip to Memphis. It started with a "Mickey" on Beale Street and ended with the victim in jail. At times he says he felt like a zombie. WMC Action News 5 is keeping this 18-year-old´s identity concealed, for the purpose of this story his name is "Sam." Sam was in a hospital bed hours after a nightmarish chain of events last weekend that left his head bruised and bloodied, his feet bandaged. It all started innocently enough with a pink drink on Beale Street.

How mass migration hurts us all:

Mass immigration will damage the living standards of everyone in the country as minor economic benefits are outweighed by the social pressures of a relentlessly rising population, one of Britain’s most eminent Left-wing economists declared yesterday. Professor Robert Rowthorn, Emeritus Professor of Economics at Cambridge University and a longstanding adviser to Whitehall departments, said the economic advantages of immigration are ‘unlikely to be very large’. But the downside – from building on the green belt to the overcrowding of cities – means that the consequences of large-scale immigration ‘are mostly negative for the

Family of Bronx Man Killed in Sucker-

A grieving Bronx family is stunned that the teen accused of sucker-punching their father and husband is being charged with a misdemeanor that could result in the suspect doing less than a year in jail. Ildefonso Romero Jr. died days after a teenage boy allegedly sucker-punched him outside his home on Thieriot Avenue in Soundview on June 21. Witnesses said Romero had been protecting a girl from local teens who were apparently causing trouble in the street, and one of the teens punched Romero. Romero fell and hit his head on the curb, and his son found him unconscious

Christie trails Clinton by 9 points

Trenton — A new poll on the 2016 presidential race shows Gov. Chris Christie´s popularity among voters in the swing state of Ohio is still lagging. The Quinnipiac University survey, released this morning, shows a larger percentage of Ohio voters see New Jersey´s Republican governor in a negative light than those who view him positively — 36 to 34 percent. At the same time, Christie trails Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton by 9 percentage points — 46 to 37 percent — in a mock-head-to-head matchup for the White House. That´s a 1-point drop from the group´s last survey, in May.

Six cops charged with

Stories of shakedowns, brutality, kidnapping, and theft have dogged a group of the city´s Narcotics Field Unit officers for nearly a decade. But despite multiple investigations, cases against them never stuck. Federal prosecutors set out to change that Wednesday, laying out a sprawling racketeering case against six of the unit´s former members. The charges paint them as rogue cops running roughshod over the rights of their targets, confident that few would believe anyone who dared complain. (Snip) Between February 2006 and November 2012, it states, they stole more than $500,000 in cash, drugs, and personal property - all while using

Victim of St. Roch attack: ´They

William Murphy set out Sunday night to pick up a few groceries at the New Orleans Food Co-op in the St. Roch neighborhood. The roughly three-block walk is one the 54-year-old home renovator said he´s made countless times since moving to the neighborhood in 2006. But what should have been a routine errand quickly turned into a harrowing encounter with a group of teenagers who left him bloody and battered. He remembers only flashes, he said, including the teens taking his laptop from his backpack but never attempting -- despite ample opportunity -- to take the $90 he had

Of the dead, we know so little. Their names, usually. The clothes they wore. That they lost hope, and where.

(Snip) At the GWB, the death toll has risen so quickly that even local advocates for suicide prevention have been caught by surprise. “For years, the average was about six people per year” who jump from the bridge, said Dale Carnhi, director of the American

Nashville, TN — Law enforcement and rescuers of sex slaves report that because of a saturation of human trafficking in the deep South, more human traffickers are bringing young girls to Middle Tennessee. "The trafficker said to them (slaves) on the way here, I´m taking you to Nashville because I can make more money off you there," said Derri Smith, executive director of End Slavery. Sex crimes detectives said that Nashville is part of a four-city human trafficking "loop" that also includes Birmingham, Memphis and Atlanta. "It´s almost like a circuit," said an undercover Metro sex crimes detective. Investigators said

Theodore Van Kirk, the last surviving member of the Enola Gay flight crew that bombed Hiroshima in the final stages of World War II, died Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. He was 93. Van Kirk, who went by the nickname "Dutch" and was the crew´s navigator, died at the retirement home where he lived in Georgia, according to the report. When Van Kirk spoke to a Times reporter in April 2010, he was 89 and had just become the final survivor of the famed crew. “It’s a very lonely feeling,” he said.

Fresno, Calif. — A California man who disappeared after refusing treatment for tuberculosis, which can be contagious and spreads by coughing or sneezing, was found and arrested on charges of refusing to comply with health officials, a prosecutor said Tuesday. Eduardo Rosas Cruz, 25, was arrested late Monday in Kern County, San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Stephen Taylor said. Before Rosas Cruz can be sent back to San Joaquin County, he has to be medically cleared, which could take weeks, Taylor said. Authorities last week obtained an arrest warrant for Rosas Cruz, saying he was diagnosed with tuberculosis in

A good friend of mine apologized to me today. You see, he voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the 2008 election and he lives in a so-called “swing state.” He told me that he had not voted for Obama in the 2012 election, but that he realized that by supporting him in 2008, he had help unleash a deadly virus onto the American scene. He simply said he was sorry. I think a good many Americans feel much the same as my good friend. They know that they were seduced by the very slick presentation that Barack Obama made in the

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status had their applications denied by IRS bureaucrats who called them names like “crazies,” “rabid” and other words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper. The tax agency is supposed to be run by nonpartisan, career professionals, but the latest set of emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee suggest the agency is anything but. Until the scandal erupted last year, Lois G. Lerner was in charge of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations. Congressional investigators have spent months sifting through her emails — the ones that didn’t “go missing” — to find out

First lady Michelle Obama embraced her family’s African roots in a speech today, telling a young audience that the ´blood of Africa´ runs through her veins as she urged changing traditional beliefs on the worth of educating women. Her husband had shied away from discussing his African heritage in his own remarks to the 500 Africans finishing a six-week Washington leadership fellowship on Monday, referencing his Kenyan father only once in the question-and-answer session. But Michelle Obama said as an African American woman, her discussion with the African youth was ´deeply personal´. ´The roots of my family tree are in

Bill O’Reilly obviously doesn’t care for how President Obama and the Democrats are running things, but tonight he also had some tough words for the GOP. He asked guest Kate Obenshain why the Republicans continue to remain in the muck with the left and try to “destroy one another” instead of getting things done. O’Reilly asked, “Shouldn’t they rise above it?” Obenshain argued that it’s Democrats doing all the nasty politicking and name-calling, as well as the ginning up of impeachment. O’Reilly, however, noted some conservatives are bringing it up and said there’s “plenty of hate on both sides.” Obenshain objected, “No,

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services is too weak for today’s global threats. The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once. It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy and budget cuts, is a “serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States.” The forces’ numbers spelled out in Mr. Obama’s

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been traveling to New York in the past month to quietly meet with high-flying business leaders to ramp up interest in a potential presidential bid, sources tell Page Six. “He’s been meeting with groups of up to 15 people at private homes to tell them about some of his moderate points of view,” a source said. “He’s been meeting with Republicans, Democrats and independents.” Our source added, “They’re not fund-raisers. It’s for people here to get to know more about him. He’s said he has not decided whether he’ll run.” We hear that Bush was in town

A top official at the Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday he is troubled by a lack of trust from Republicans concerning the EPA’s new climate rule and plan to regulate smaller bodies of water. EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe said he is trying to “build a bridge” with Republicans. “I can tell you my boss [EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy would want nothing more than to build credibility with Congress,” Perciasepe said during a hearing at the House Small Business Committee.

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon called on Israel on Thursday to do more to protect civilian life during its military operations in Gaza, saying the conflict was taking too high a toll on civilians. "The civilian casualties in Gaza have been too high. And it´s become clear that the Israelis need to do more to live up to their very high standards - their very high and very public standards - for protecting civilian life," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said at a news briefing.

Over the past two years, the Obama administration has published hundreds and hundreds of rules — on how wheelchairs should be stowed aboard U.S. aircraft, how foreign trade zones should be regulated, how voting assistance should be provided for U.S. citizens overseas, and so on.There’s a problem, however: Technically speaking, these and some 1,800 other regulations shouldn’t be in effect because they weren’t reported to Congress as required. Yet there is little that lawmakers or the courts can do about it. The situation illustrates the obscure, Byzantine process used to create federal regulations — and how easily it can go awry. “It’s

The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said to members of the media at an “emergency” meeting of the U.N. Human Rights Council that Israel was falling short in its duty to protect citizens in the Gaza Strip from getting killed by its rockets. “There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a
