That New Jersey ranks highly as a good place to raise children isn't surprising. After all, its residents are among the wealthiest per capita in America.   But the makers of public policy in the state must address shortcomings in combating child poverty that the Annie E. Casey Foundation's annual Kid's Count report says have gotten worse since the recession. New Jersey ranked fourth overall in the report — below New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Pennsylvania was 14th.

New Jersey is in the news again and whenever New Jersey is in the news it's not good. The election of a woman governor, Christie Todd Whitman, should have brought us some positive media coverage as a progressive state. Instead, Ed Rollins, her political strategist, bragged that he suppressed the turnout of African American voters. If such political chicanery had happened in any other state, I suspect it wouldn't have been the lead story of the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour. Of course, Rollins later said he was lying, but the damage was done.

After their youngest child finished high school in June, destined for college, Janice and John Potts lost no time bolting from New Jersey. By the end of July, the longtime Haddonfield residents were cheerfully ensconced in a three-bedroom rowhouse near Philadelphia's Washington Square. Their new abode is much smaller than the 4,500-square-foot home (with swimming pool) that they sold, but it comes with a huge plus. "We downsized in terms of space, but cut our property-tax bill in half," said Janice Potts, 52, an outsource-services manager for a Center City firm.

A TWEAK in New Jersey beer regs is paying immediate dividends for Garden State beer drinkers. Under longstanding rules, breweries had been prevented from selling beer for consumption on their own premises. That meant no tasting rooms, which are a significant source of revenue for breweries in practically every other state. The law was changed last year, however, to allow breweries to sell pints to those who tour their facilities. As a result, small brewers are opening what amount to quasi-brewpubs that sell only house beer (no food)

When I testified before a state Senate committee in Trenton this week, I wore my Batman tie. I did so in honor of the sponsors of a higher-education restructuring bill, who had at last emerged from their cave. After decades of development, endless rounds of engagement with stakeholders, and a couple of all-nighters last weekend, Sens. Donald Norcross (D., Camden) and Joseph Vitale (D., Middlesex) stepped into the daylight to announce the price of the most complex reorganization of Rutgers, Rowan, and other New Jersey universities in 50 years.

With all due respect to Joseph "Red" Mascara and his New Jersey song ("Oh, say, can we get an official state song?" Aug. 19), the song needs to be more specific as to why New Jersey is great. Attached is another attempt, sung to the easy-to-sing tune, "Away in a Manger. " The final stanza is just for comic relief. New Jersey, New Jersey: Our state's got it all, From cities to farmlands We proudly stand tall. We've Pine Barrens and seashores, Lakes, mountains, and streams, Quaint towns and lush gardens It's the state of our dreams.

New York state and New Jersey announced mandatory quarantines of arriving passengers who had direct contact with Ebola patients in West Africa early Friday evening, and within three hours Gov. Christie reported that a health-care worker who flew through Newark Liberty International Airport had developed a fever and was in isolation at University Hospital Newark. The developments came as state and local health departments were gearing up to carry out the latest federal directive for containing Ebola: monitoring for 21 days all travelers from Liberia, Guinea, or Sierra Leone who fly into the United States.
