The province of New Brunswick, which issued its own stamps before joining the Canadian confederation, is renowned for two postal events. On Sept. 6, 1851, New Brunswick issued its first stamps, in the values of 3 pence, 6 pence and 1 shilling. The stamps were diamond-shaped and depicted the royal crown of Britain surrounded by roses, a shamrock and a thistle - the heraldic flowers of England, Ireland and Scotland. The stamps were in regular use until 1854, when the letter rate to Britain was reduced from 1 shilling, 3 pence to 7 1/2 pence.

It's a bit of a drive to New Brunswick, but The Frog and the Peach is such a splendid place that it's worth the effort. Open four years, the charming restaurant offers a remarkably inventive and beautifully executed cuisine, although it is expensive enough to consider taking out a second mortgage before you go; still, it is perfect for special occasions. The relatively small dining rooms are decorated all in white - white brick walls and woodworking, white utility pipes, white tablecloths and napkins and candles on the tables.

A report on New Jersey gaming that reimagines Atlantic City doesn't look to Las Vegas or New York for inspiration. It looks to one of its own: New Brunswick. The authors of the report say the 35-year transformation of the small central New Jersey city, the home of Rutgers University, offers a model for turning around the struggling Shore resort. In the mid-1970s, pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson created a process for redevelopment through public-private partnerships - most significantly, through a tax-exempt development company specifically for New Brunswick.

For more than five hours, I had cast with my fly rod into the river - casting as a cold drizzle soaked my hands and neck, casting as a brisk wind spun the anchored canoe from side to side, casting as my back and shoulders stiffened, casting as I glumly realized that I had skied in warmer weather than this. Then something happened that instantly made everything worth it. A splash shot up from where my silvery fly was drifting downstream. On what must have been my millionth cast, my reel started spinning madly, the line tearing out toward the disturbance in the water.

This is my kind of bass fishing. With few if any other boats on the St. Croix River, roaring engines and sophisticated electronics are conspicuous by their absence. The only competition is between you and the fish. It was here, 27 years before, that I learned to fully appreciate the fighting qualities of the smallmouth bass. I've caught a lot of them in a lot of places since, but it is still New Brunswick and smallmouth in my word- association game. So it was a long-delayed sentimental journey I undertook, combining a fishing trip to three separate spots with a family vacation.

A man wanted in a string of sexual assaults in New Brunswick, N.J., bears some striking similarities in description and demeanor to the man who raped two women in Fairmount Park, killing one of them, Philadelphia police said yesterday. The six New Brunswick attacks, starting Sept. 20, 2001, have been linked through DNA. The two attacks in Fairmount Park also were connected through DNA. Police had not, by last night, begun comparing the DNA to determine whether all eight cases were related.

Pleasantville enjoyed its best outside-shooting game of the Group 2 boys' basketball tournament last night, and the results were predictable. The Greyhounds rolled to a 97-61 victory over Central Jersey champion New Brunswick in a state Group 2 semifinal game at Manalapan High. Pleasantville (28-0) will play Boonton on Sunday at Rutgers for the state title. Boonton beat Pascack Hills, 53-43, in the other state semifinal game last night. It will be the Greyhounds' first trip to the finals since 1979, when they lost to Orange.

We are knee-deep in bathtub-warm salt water. We swing nets along the ocean bottom like shortstops scooping up ground balls. We're halfway up the coast of the Canadian province of New Brunswick, a place that is not on many swimmers' radar. Most people think a dip in these waters would be suitable only for polar bears. But people do come to swim at the beaches of Kouchibouguac National Park, heavily promoted as the warmest salt water north of the Virginia shore. (And if you pronounce it "koo-she-BOO-gwack" you might pass as a local.

When Erin Donohue lined up to run the 1,000 meters at the Diamond League Grand Prix in New York on June 13, she was not considered a major force in middle distance track - at least not anymore. Dressed all in black, Donohue, who ran the 1,500 meters for the United States in the 2008 Olympics, no longer had a sponsor. Major track meets, world championships and competitions had gone on without her for years. At 32, she was 13 years older than the youngest person on the line, 19-year-old Mary Cain.

Applications to Rutgers University surged this year, with school officials citing entrance into the Big Ten athletic conference - and the corresponding nationwide exposure - as the major driver for the 11 percent increase in first-year applications. Across the university, Rutgers had 37,459 freshman applications, up from 33,717 in 2014, 33,545 in 2013, and 31,842 in 2012. The increases are spread across the New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden campuses, and mirror a rise officials expect to see in transfer applications by the end of summer.

It was a murder on the New Jersey Turnpike - stunning violence near the New Brunswick exit. Now, decades after Black Liberation Army leader Joanne Chesimard was sentenced for the 1973 killing of a state trooper, escaped prison, and surfaced in Cuba in 1984, she is first and foremost among the estimated 70 American fugitives harbored there whose apparent flouting of U.S. law is fuel for critics of recent efforts to restore U.S.-Cuba relations....

Jean Barr was the chief social worker when Dr. Ross V. Speck was the director of the department of social psychiatry at Hahnemann Medical College from 1964 to 1970. "There weren't many that would tackle the kinds of things that he would," Barr recalled. "Who else would go into these communes," in college neighborhoods such as Powelton in West Philadelphia, "and work with kids? "We would go for two or three hours in the evenings and get to know them pretty well," talking about their addictions.

After a surgical device spread an aggressive but undetected uterine cancer inside anesthesiologist Amy Reed in late 2013, she and her husband launched a campaign to ban electric morcellators. Now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has gotten involved, according to Reed's husband, Philadelphia heart surgeon Hooman Noorchashm, and Sarah Robinson, a California woman whose cancer was also worsened by the device. Both said Wednesday that they have been interviewed by FBI agents, and believe the FBI is looking into whether manufacturers failed to report deaths and serious injuries to the Food and Drug Administration, as required by federal law. "I had been trying to get the FBI's attention for a very long time," said Noorchashm, a heart surgeon at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

TRENTON - New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney introduced legislation Thursday that would raise the marginal tax rate on income above $1 million, a measure he said would help fund the pension system, but one that almost certainly will be vetoed by Gov. Christie. Sweeney (D., Gloucester) also proposed increasing a tax credit for the poor. Christie, a Republican, cut that credit in 2010 amid a budget shortfall. "No one likes to increase any tax," Sweeney said in a statement, "and it would not be necessary to do so if New Jersey did not rank near the bottom in economic, revenue, and job growth under the Christie administration.

Gov.

At a news conference in New Brunswick, N.J., Christie said he had just seen a Bloomberg News report that a former official with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, David Wildstein, would plead guilty, and "I don't know exactly what's going...

Even with his father's history as a boxer and manager in the sport, Dylan Price didn't immediately jump into the ring. He tried his hand at several sports as a youngster, including football. "I was pretty small, about 55 pounds, and was moving up to the 105-pound division," the 16-year-old said. "That's when my dad said to me, 'It's time for you to try something else.' " Price took his first competitive step in boxing when he was 9. "I knew on the first day that it was for me," he said.

Christian Carto has many fond memories of winning the Golden Gloves 108-pound national title last May in Las Vegas. One of them, however, wasn't those late-night runs following bouts. "I would fight and then I would have to go out and run," Carto (37-5) said. "It was all worth it because of the way things turned out. It was worth it. " That was last spring, when Carto - making his debut at the nationals - emerged as an underdog and earned a 3-2 split decision over two-time USA Boxing 108-pound champion Leroy Davila of New Brunswick, N.J., for the Golden Gloves title.
