This is our baby, Figaro, and we were reunited yesterday, Aug. 26th! We are deeply grateful for the very kind people who cared for him and helped to bring him home! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! Cara

NO surprise here! He broke into our neighborhood last summer and had 22 charges against him....the courts let gave him 11/29 with time served and he was out less than 11 months later. Before our break ins he was in prison and got out less than 5 months before he ransacked our neighborhood. He has a twin brother that is just like him and they've been doing it since they were teens. Clearly the courts aren't going to stop him because he keeps getting a get out of jail free card. Too bad the homeowner didn't shoot because I'm convinced that is the only thing going to stop this guy. One day his luck will run out! I don't blame our police officers at all, because they do their job, they catch and detain this punk. The courts however fail us miserably by letting him go every time. I know our officers have to be tired of dealing with these constant repeat offenders.

for the xbox one to compete w/PS4 the price needs to be $300.... bundles and limited exclusives are not rescuing this albatross the xbox one has inferior hardware to the PS4...what the exact power differences,are still debatable(am no computer expert just a consumer & gamer)...but it really doesnt matter if its 1% more powerful or 100% more powerful the fact is people dont pay the same price for an inferior products.... inferior hardware means the price needs to drop again..... if dropping the price to 300 is completely unrealistic then the xbox one ever competing with the PS4 is equally unrealistic

We lost a dog over there on August 2, a little white Maltese...he followed a white pug out of Harvest Run. From what I have learned the Pug does not live in Harvest Run, he lives over off of Pythian. Perhaps your dog followed him? We have still not found Buddy. I pray you find yours.

This is the perfect example of the need for something like a 3 strikes law. This guy should be put away forever. Obviously he can't live any other way than by being a criminal.

There is a typographical error near the end of the story. I seriously doubt that the Red Bank Police Chief has convictions dating back to 2007. I think the sentence should read: "Vaughan has convictions dating back to 2007."

Does WDEF have anyone actually edit these stories? They appear to be written by a person that never completed the third grade.
