TOP STORIES:

SENATE 2018-NEW JERSEY

TRENTON — New Jersey Republican Senate candidate Bob Hugin has poured millions into his campaign to beat Democratic incumbent Bob Menendez in this year’s midterm contest. Now Menendez has gone on the attack and super PACs are getting into the race as well. By Mike Catalini. SENT: About 620 words.

EXCHANGE:

EXCHANGE-JUVENILE CURFEWS

NEWARK — Some residents have fought curfew laws that force kids indoors on summer evenings if they’re not accompanied by an adult. Some of those court battles have even been successful. But many of New Jersey’s municipalities still have juvenile curfews. And nearly all of the state’s 15 most populous municipalities have curfews. Some begin as early as 9:30 p.m., and end as late as 6 a.m., like the one in Galloway Township. Most, however, restrict unescorted travel by those 17 and younger outside the house between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Ignore the ordinance, and nothing may happen in some municipalities. But parents of those who are caught may be issued fines as high as $1,000. By Taylor Tiamoyo Harris, NJ.com. SENT: About 1250 words.

AROUND THE STATE:

GAS PRICES — Drivers in New Jersey saw prices at the pump dip a bit last week, which analysts call part of a nationwide trend of instability.
