Cuomo and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.The so called “Bottle Bill” law mandates that all retailers and distributors of bottled beverages in New York state pay a five cent deposit per bottle to their beverage dealers or distributors. The cost is passed on to consumers, who sometimes return the empty bottles to redeem the five cent deposit.By allegedly forgoing the nickel deposits, North Bergen Beverage was able to undercut its competitors and deny New York state millions in revenue it would have otherwise received when deposits are not redeemed by consumers, state officials said.As part of the settlement, North Bergen Beverage will pay New York state $400,000 in new penalties on top of a previous payment of $100,000, as well as $50,000 for investigative costs. They will also suspend sales in the state of all products covered by the bottle bill for three years.The penalty is the largest ever against a distributor for violating the law, the press release said.“As we allege, North Bergen Beverage persistently, repeatedly, and knowingly broke the law,” said NY State A.G. Eric Schneiderman in the release.Volunteer Baseball Coaches NeededVolunteer coaches are needed for North Bergen’s upcoming baseball season.

Beaches Take a Beating, Streets Flood in Friday Storm

first_img[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”14″ gal_title=”October 2015 Storm Friday”] Peak tide level: 7.35 feet (Mean Low Water) at 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2. Then 7.09 feet at 12:54 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3.(See tide level in real time at the Bayside Center on the 500 block of Bay Avenue in Ocean City. Add 2.77 to convert NAVD88 readings to MLW.)How high is that tide? The 7.35 feet is the highest tide of the calendar year. It falls in what forecasters call “moderate tidal flooding” range of 6.5 feet to 7.5 feet. Superstorm Sandy, by comparison, was a record 10.02 feet on the MLW scale, and the memorable November 2009 nor’easter was 8.02 feet. (See OCNJ Daily’s chart of historic and recent record flood levels.)Observations: Travel on many parts of West, Haven, Simpson and Bay avenues was difficult early Friday afternoon with salt water covering long stretches of the roadways. But the flood was not substantially greater than what Ocean City sees during the biggest storms of any year. Rainfall was light through the early afternoon with the accumulated total from midnight to noon about a quarter inch. A slight shift in the wind direction from northeast to north may have helped prevent more flooding.Streets closer to the beach (Wesley and Central avenues) provided the highest and driest routes the length of town.The greatest impact from the storm seems to be on the beaches. The elevation of the rebuilt beaches at the south end was holding back the waves, but it could not prevent water from flowing across the wide expanses of new sand to the edge of the new dunes. How much sand was moved or lost won’t be fully evident until the swell subsides.With the whitecaps of breaking waves stretching to the horizon, the north end beaches took a hit. The waves carved into the dunes at Waverly, Fifth Street and Sixth Street. The swell buried jetties and covered the downtown beaches between Ninth and 14th streets.On the bay side, the tide appeared to rise to just a foot or two below the tops of the bulkheads.The Forecast: The National Weather Service forecast calls for the chance of heavy rain to greatly diminish, but not the wind. The coast can expect sustained wind at 30 to 40 mph gusting beyond 50 mph. Projected track of Hurricane Joaquin as of Friday evening.Ocean City can expect street flooding similar to Friday’s at high tide at 12:45 a.m. and 1:08 p.m. on Saturday.Unrelated to the northeast gale, Category 4 Hurricane Joaquin had sustained winds of 130 mph as it battered the Bahamas early Friday. Forecasters as of Friday were favoring a track that would pass by Ocean City far out over the open ocean.Big waves generated by the passing hurricane likely would affect Ocean City on Sunday and Monday. But the very strong local northeast winds in the forecast through Monday would make surfing conditions less than ideal.National Weather Service Briefing: Read the most current briefing from the NWS.High Tides: Residents and visitors should be aware of the following high tides (on Ocean City’s bay side at the Ninth Street Bridge) and be prepared to move vehicles from flood-prone streets (particularly during heavy rainfall):Saturday: 12:45 a.m. and 1:08 p.m.Sunday: 1:42 a.m. and 2:05 p.m.Follow OCNJ DailySign up for our free news updates from Ocean City. Check back with OCNJ Daily for photographs and reports on real-time conditions in Ocean City.Postponements:The Ocean City School District will be closed on Friday.The Bike MS: City to Shore ride has been cancelled with no reschedule date.The HERO Foundation Walk has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10.The Ocean City Firefighters’ glowball golf event for Operation First Response has been postponed until Friday, Oct. 9.A Clean Ocean Action check presentation at Henry’s on the Boardwalk has been postponed with a rescheduled date to be determined.All games and practices for Ocean City Intermediate School have been cancelled for Thursday.The Ocean City High School away football game at St. Augustine’s Prep (originally scheduled for Friday) has been rescheduled for Thursday (Oct. 1) at 6 p.m.OCHS soccer and tennis games are postponed.Ocean City Emergency Management Statement:Read the latest update from 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1. Ocean City saw its highest tide of the year Friday at 12:30 p.m., and many streets were flooded. But a relentless northeast gale reserved its best punch for Ocean City’s beaches.Just three days after the completion of a massive $57 million Army Corps of Engineers project to rebuild beaches at the southern end of Ocean City, Strathmere and Sea Isle City, the new sand is underwater. The ocean was lapping at the newly constructed dune line at high tide on Friday.From north to south in Ocean City, the beach had disappeared under a storm swell churned up by northeast winds between 25 and 35 mph on Friday. The peak wind speed on Friday at 59th Street Beach was 47 mph and was recorded at 12:58 p.m.Ocean City has been in the gap between high and low pressure systems for more than a week, and the resulting wind and waves have battered the coast. The conditions likely peaked with Friday’s high tide, but the gale will continue through the weekend.last_img read more

Press release: New Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner announced

first_img I have met Sara Thornton to discuss our findings on the role of the Commissioner. I look forward to working with her. Ms Thornton said: Sara Thornton, a police officer with more than 30 years’ experience, will take up the role of the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner to help spearhead the UK’s response to this devastating crime.Ms Thornton, who is currently Chair of the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and formerly Chief Constable at Thames Valley Police until 2015, was selected for the important role by the Home Secretary Sajid Javid following a competitive recruitment process.The role was created as part of the landmark Modern Slavery Act 2015 and has a UK-wide remit to give independent advice on modern slavery issues and how they should be tackled.Ms Thornton will be expected to: Frank Field, who is leading an Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act with Maria Miller MP and Baroness Butler-Sloss, said: encourage good practice to drive an increase in the identification and protection of victims of modern slavery, and to ensure the provision of enhanced support for all victims and survivors in the UK drive effective prevention of slavery and human trafficking offences promote an improved law enforcement and criminal justice response to modern slavery across the UK engage with the private sector and promote policies to ensure that supply chains are free of slavery foster constructive and targeted international collaboration to combat modern slavery Tackling Modern Slavery was made a key government priority by Prime Minister Theresa May when she was Home Secretary.The role is designated for three years with Sara Thornton taking up the role from this May.Sajid Javid, Home Secretary, said: The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner was created to spearhead the UK’s fight against human trafficking and modern slavery and has a key role in preventing these vile crimes and supporting victims. I am looking forward to bringing my long experience as a chief constable and in national policing to bear in this important role. Good progress has been made in recent years and I am committed to build on that and do what I can to consign this crime to history. The fact that modern slavery still exists in the shadows of our communities is totally unacceptable. We are doing all we can to banish it from society and give victims our full support. Sara has dedicated her career to protecting people in need and I look forward to the valuable insight and advice she will provide as the new Commissioner. Ms Thornton has worked in policing since 1986, when she joined the Metropolitan Police. During her 33 year career within policing she served as Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police from 2007 until 2015 and was appointed the first Chair of the NPCC in 2015.
