WATERLOO, Iowa - Assailed by Donald Trump a day earlier, Gov. Christie on Tuesday said little as he brushed off the GOP rival's barrage, which encompassed attacks on New Jersey's economy, the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal, and Christie's embrace of President Obama at the Jersey Shore after Hurricane Sandy. "It just appears to me that the Christmas spirit left Donald after only three days," Christie told reporters at Elly's Tea & Coffee in Muscatine, in eastern Iowa. He then wished Trump and his family a happy New Year, adding, "I'll see him in New Hampshire.

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump unleashed a fusillade of attacks Monday on Gov. Christie, a rival, criticizing him on everything from New Jersey's economy to the George Washington Bridge scandal. Trump's remarks came in response to a Sunday editorial by the publisher of the New Hampshire Union Leader, which called the celebrity real estate mogul's campaign "an insult to the intelligence of Republican voters. " Trump accused Christie - who was endorsed by the Union Leader and is gaining ground in Granite State polls - of encouraging the publisher, Joseph W. McQuaid, to write the editorial.

ISSUE | WORKERS' RIGHTS A difference maker I was pleased to read about John Dodds and his continuing work at the Philadelphia Unemployment Project ("A veteran of Pa. wage fight soldiers on," Dec. 20).

The economy had soured, inflation was rampant, and jobs were scarce. My wife found the Philadelphia Unemployment Project and John Dodds.

For years, New Jersey has been open to business for shady used car dealers at multi-dealer complexes, including one allegedly tied to a New York crime family, another with apparent links to a Lebanese terrorist organization, and a number of others who couldn't get dealer licenses in their own states. Some dealers returned the favor by giving the business to consumers. They sold cars with severe defects, or in at least one case, took cash for cars that were never delivered. Blame for the situation has been placed on the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, whose lax enforcement created fertile ground for bad dealers.

Funeral arrangements have been set for a New Jersey state trooper killed in a one-car crash in Salem County on Thursday. The services for Trooper Eli McCarson, 30, will be held Wednesday at Rowan University's Pfleeger Concert Hall in Glassboro, state police said Saturday. A viewing is scheduled from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., followed by a funeral at noon. McCarson will then be buried at a location that had not yet been disclosed Saturday.

BEDFORD, N.H. - Gov. Christie pulled out all the promotional stops Saturday to begin a four-day campaign swing through New Hampshire: supporters who sang his praises, cheering New Jersey volunteers, and a shiny campaign bus that rolled into an automotive shop to the Star Wars theme. As he pushed the message of a campaign on the rise - buoyed by recent polling boosts in New Hampshire, though he lags nationally - Christie leveled sharp attacks on his Republican rivals and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

EGG HARBOR CITY, N.J. - Renault Winery is one of those unexpected kinds of places surrounded by deep southern New Jersey's rolling farmlands and thick pine forests. The winery - the second oldest in the nation - with a golf course, two restaurants, and a 50-room luxury hotel tucked away on a country road off Route 30, is more reminiscent of an Italian locanda than a Jersey Shore roadside attraction. It has survived the cultural feasts and famines of the eras - wars, economic downturns such as the Great Depression, and even Prohibition - since it was founded by French immigrant Louis Nicolas Renault, who planted the first vineyards on the Atlantic County property in 1864.

New Jersey lawmakers are considering a bill that would make the state the second in the country to raise the minimum age to buy tobacco products to 21. While health advocates believe the measure, if passed, would discourage young people from lighting up, the bill may face strong opposition in the Legislature. Currently, New Jersey is among four states and the District of Columbia where the minimum age to purchase tobacco is 19. The age is 18 elsewhere in the country including Pennsylvania, where a similar "tobacco 21" bill was introduced in October.
