There's nothing like the open road, a powerful car and a beautiful Spring day.
This week's 5 Cars suggests grabbing a muscle car. What's that? According to Merriam-Webster, it's one of "a group of American-made two-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving." We're talking a huge, honkin' V6 or V8 engine, rear-wheel drive, something you'd imagine Fonzie driving in a drag race. Best of all, a muscle car can make its driver look like she or he shouldn't be messed with: These powerful, though fairly inexpensive, vehicles can make you look and feel tougher, stronger, sexier and richer than you probably are. You know, three grand makes for a tidy down payment... And after dealing with the IRS, feeling tough while being thrifty may be exactly what the doctor ordered. 1. 2014 Ford Mustang…

EVO Delicacies opens in town to bring a cross between a gourmet food shop and deli with a Mediterranean style.
When two guys from New Jersey with almost 30 years of combined experience as chefs looked to open a restaurant in Short Hills, they decided on a deli but with a Mediterranean flare — taking the typical deli to the next level. "I like to tell people it's the evolution of what an American style deli is," co-owner Alex Gomes said. Gomes, 31, of Caldwell, and his business partner Jose Nolasco, 27, of Kennilworth, opened EVO Delicacies on April 15 to bring a European-style store to Short Hills. The deli, located at 40 Chatham Road in Short Hills, is a cross between a gourmet food shop and deli with Mediterranean style cheeses and meats, most of which are locally made. Customers can still stop in for what they would expect from a normal deli…

Final hearing on a 4.1 percent increase for state's second largest utility.
Friday, April 26
The sixth and final hearing on a request for a rate increase by the state’s second largest utility company met with a mix of praise and criticism for Jersey Central Power & Light at Freehold Township’s Town Hall on April 24. JCP&L, fresh off widespread criticism for its handling of superstorm Sandy and the nor’easter that followed, is seeking a 4.1 percent increase in the rates it charges its 1.1 million customers – many of whom were without power for up to two weeks after this winter’s storms. The Morristown-based company is seeking to recoup the $630 million it spent on repairs following Sandy. It has petitioned the state regulatory board — the Board of Public Utilities — which has held hearings throughout JCP&L’s coverage area since the…
