John Hanson, the new chief executive of the Delaware River Port Authority, has been spending Friday afternoons far from his Camden corner office overlooking Philadelphia and the river. With a fluorescent green vest over his suit jacket, he has been at the crowded Eighth and Market station beneath Center City, herding passengers onto packed PATCO trains. "There's room in this car," he called on a recent Friday as he and other DRPA executives joined PATCO workers to ease crowding caused by a construction project on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

TRENTON - The Christie administration is proposing a series of "tax policy adjustments" in its next budget to "close loopholes, increase consistency, and support fairness. " But none of them, the Christie administration says, are new taxes or tax increases. Fees and adjustments are favored terms for both parties in modern political discourse. But the tax rhetoric being used by the administration is notable, in part, because the Republican governor repeatedly attacked his Democratic rival in his reelection campaign last year for voting to raise taxes and fees "154 times" in her legislative career.

NEWARK, N.J. - The location of the trees that Joyce Kilmer wrote were more lovely than any poem has long been in dispute, with a handful of towns from Massachusetts to Indiana claiming to have inspired the verse. But a New Jersey historian said he now has irrefutable proof that Kilmer was stirred by the woods of the Ramapo Valley when he wrote the well-known words, "I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree. " Alex Michelini, founder of the Joyce Kilmer Society in Mahwah, said Friday that a letter written in 1929 by Kilmer's widow, Aline, to a graduate student shows that "Trees" was written on Feb. 2, 1913, at the couple's former home in Mahwah.

Eddie Berner's tour bus was running late. Inside Durand Academy and Community Services headquarters in Mount Laurel, administrators milled about, waiting to meet their new fund-raising partner. They were happy to wait: Durand, which provides housing, schooling, and support services to people with autism in South Jersey, had never been visited by a rock star before. Fifteen minutes after Berner's publicist said his tour bus would arrive, a black RV, its sides plastered with red vinyl flames, squealed into the lot outside the headquarters on Gaither Drive.

PHILLY-BASED "Mob Wives" star Alicia DiMichele will be sentenced in Brooklyn Federal Court today for embezzling funds from Big R Trucking, the company she once co-owned with hubs Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo Jr ., who was recently sentenced to seven years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder and witness tampering. According to court docs, DiMichele faces a $96,000 fine, $20,000 in restitution payments and up to six months in prison. Although the $20,000 fine was agreed upon beforehand, DiMichele's attorney, John S. Wallenstein , called the restitution "both inappropriate and vastly excessive," writing that prosecutors came up with the figure because of DiMichele's participation on the VH1 reality show.

TRENTON - More than five years after New Jersey passed a law to start tracking prescription drug use, the state will launch a database to monitor use of dangerous drugs with the intent of helping doctors spot abusers more quickly and authorities stop drug dealers. The database, which has been collecting information since Sept. 1, contains more than four million prescriptions. Starting this month, doctors and pharmacies, including mail-order operations, can access detailed patient information on prescriptions for painkillers, steroids, sedatives, and stimulants.

LOS ANGELES - New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer shook up his lineup with the Devils down to their last gasp in the Stanley Cup Finals. Forward Petr Sykora and defenseman Henrik Tallinder cracked the lineup for Game 4 on Wednesday night. And the Devils pulled out a 3-1 victory to stay alive. The Kings lead the series, three games to one. Tallinder has been out since January because of a blood clot, but apparently was ready to play in this series. "Peter Harrold played great, gave us some good minutes," DeBoer said.

Moving from paper to electronic medical records is a mammoth undertaking for small doctors' offices, but one that is crucial to methods of managing care that are focused on keeping people out of the hospital rather than just treating illnesses. Meetinghouse Family Physicians, a three-physician practice in Marlton, started down the winding road toward fully electronic medical records about four years ago. "We're getting there. The doctors have all bought into it," said Phyllis Downy, Meetinghouse's office manager, said This year, Meetinghouse, which employs 17 people including the doctors, is gearing up to obtain a second level of certification from the federal government that it is making "meaningful use" of electronic medical records (EMR)

HE'S RESTED. He's ready. He still owes a boatload of taxes. That could be the new campaign slogan for one the city's most unconventional political candidates, T. Milton Street Sr. Street, the 73-year-old former state senator who served time in federal prison for unpaid taxes, says he will run for mayor in 2015. Street, who took 24 percent of the vote in the 2011 Democratic primary for mayor, announced his candidacy in a 200-word Facebook post on Sunday. In that post, Street was very critical of state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams, expected to be a candidate for mayor next year.

Two former top deputies of Gov. Christie do not have to comply with "overbroad" subpoenas served by a New Jersey legislative panel investigating September lane closures at the George Washington Bridge, a judge ruled Wednesday. Even as Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson in Trenton dealt a setback to the committee's investigation, she left open the possibility that the committee could issue subpoenas with more specific requests that do not violate the Fifth Amendment. She also ruled that the panel has the power to compel the production of documents by granting immunity.

TRENTON - New Jersey's top law enforcement official couldn't say Tuesday how much state taxpayers are paying in legal bills to investigate September's lane closures at the George Washington Bridge. He hasn't received any bills from the law firm retained by Gov. Christie's office. At the same time, legislators are requesting transcripts or other documents from dozens of interviews the firm conducted to formulate a report released this month that absolved Christie and his current staff of any responsibility for the traffic jams.

With a new United Nations report showing global warming is getting worse, the window to protect food supplies and endangered coastal communities is closing. But progress is being made. In New Jersey, an appellate court has ruled that Gov. Christie was wrong to pull out of a regional compact to reduce climate-changing pollution. As a result, New Jersey must allow for public input before the state can withdraw from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a consortium of nine Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states trying to reduce carbon pollution from power plants.
