New “Devil” Statue Created for Iconic One That Was Stolen 
A new, iconic, Jersey Devil statue has been placed in front of Lucille’s Luncheonette in Warren Grove. The new statue was made by artists at Rocky Mountain Carvers, who were also responsible for the original. The original statue was stolen in June. Police were able to ID a suspect, but no arrests have been made. Stafford police identified Thomas Blintz, 52, of Chandlersville, Ohio, but are asking the public for information on his whereabouts. 
Menendez Pleads “Not Guilty” Again
Senator Bob Menendez was arraigned Monday on a federal indictment accusing him of conspiring to act as a foreign agent for the Egyptian government. Menendez entered a not guilty plea in New York Federal Court. Prosecutors said the senator and his wife, Nadine Menendez, accepted bribes of cash, gold bars and a luxury car over the past five years from three New Jersey businessmen in exchange for a variety of political favors. Menendez has resisted calls from more than 30 democrats that he resign.
