NJ Transit sent 4 to Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - NJ Transit paid more than $14,000 to send four employees to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.

The agency says the purpose of the trip was to prepare for New Jersey to host the sporting event next year. It's not clear if they attended the game.

Bills obtained by The Record newspaper show $7,800 was spent on hotel rooms, $5,241 on airfare and $423 in miscellaneous expenses.

The party was made up of chief of staff of rail operations Rich Andreski, Hoboken rail operations superintendent Joseph Meade III, NJ Transit Police Officer Patrick Clark and police official Robert Gatchell.

NJ Transit did not say what the officials learned.

The CEO of the New Orleans Regional Transportation Authority told the newspaper he discussed how transportation providers had to collaborate.

    Federal authorities to monitor Newark police

    Newark police engaged in the excessive use of force, routinely stopped people on the street for no legitimate reason and regularly stole property from civilians, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in a report released Tuesday that set the stage for federal monitoring of the police department that serves New Jersey's largest city. The report is the culmination of a three-year investigation begun months after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint.

    Boaters in Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey are keeping an eye out for an unwanted visitor lurking underwater: a 14- or 15-foot-ong snake, possibly a green anaconda. Several people have seen the reptile, which has probably holed up in a drain pipe. Reptile specialists are also searching the lake for signs of the snake. So far no more sightings have been reported.
