TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Voters in more than two dozen New Jersey school districts today are deciding school tax levies and school board races. Most of the state's districts have moved their school votes to November in recent years, with officials expecting turnout in most of today's votes to run to less than 20 percent of registered voters.

NEW YORK (AP) - Port Authority board members are meeting, two days after officials with the agency heard recommendations from a panel on improving accountability, public trust and efficiency. Among the issues today is a $1-a-year lease for a park and ride lot operated by New Jersey Transit that drew attention because former chairman David Samson's legal firm had done work for the authority.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Today's winds, along with low humidity have combined to put most of New Jersey under red flag warnings or fire weather watches today and tomorrow. Forecasters say any brush fires could be spread quickly because of the winds.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A Jersey City man has been jailed in the stabbing death of his grandfather. Police say John Ugarriza was arrested yesterday after officers found Jesus Ruiz with multiple stab wounds in the apartment the two shared.
