Healy Wins Mayoral Race in Jersey City on First Ballot

mayorhealynJerrimiah Healy has won another term for  Mayor of Jersey City.

 30,657 votes were cast, the incumbent Mayor Healy received a winning 53%percent share of the vote , while his closest opponent Louis Manzo had 26.3 percent. The other candidates Harvey L. Smith received 12.9 percent, Dan Levin 5.6 percent and Phil Webb 2.2 percent. Absentee and provisional ballots have to still be counted, however, the margin  of votes clearly signals Healy the winner on the first ballot.

 It seems as the results came Councilman Steven Fullop has retained his seat in Ward E receiving roughly half of the 4000 plus votes cast in that downtown  ward  race.

Some of the council seats maybe headed for a June run-off as late hour tabulation of votes were still be conducted.

 barbaraeden2Barbara Eden from Jersey City; the Realtor, not the Actress appeared on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’s ” special Edition of “Famous Names Week”

This is a follow- up on how she did on the show

Barbara Eden, walked away with $25,000 in winnings after incorrectly guessing the answer to the $50,000 question on Wednesday’s episode of “Famous Names Week” on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” She started in the hot seat on Tuesday’s show, where she made it up to the $25,000 question. She continued as a holdover contestant on Wednesday’s show, where she started by looking at the $50,000 question with no lifelines left.

Barbara’s $50,000 question was: Category, ‘What a Bargain!’ – “Which of these U.S. states was not formed at least in part from land bought during the Louisiana Purchase? A: Minnesota , B: Arkansas , C: Colorado , D: Illinois.” Barbara guessed the answer to be “C,” but unfortunately, the correct answer was “D.” Barbara walked away with $25,000 in winnings.

Amy Stewart’s new book, Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities

A tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis; a vine that strangles; and a leaf that triggered a war. In Wicked Plants, Stewart takes on over two hundred of Mother Nature’s most appalling creations. It’s an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. You’ll learn which plants to avoid (like exploding shrubs), which plants make themselves exceedingly unwelcome (like the vine that ate the South), and which ones have been killing for centuries (like the weed that killed Abraham Lincoln’s mother).
