CAMDEN - Offer them cash and they will come. Okay, clearly this city is no field of dreams. Yet a bunch of dreamers think Camden could become the shimmering East Coast hub for high-tech businesses. To find the next Jeff Bezos (who started Amazon in his garage), the South Jersey Times says the "Camden Innovation Team" is dangling $25,000 before young techno-geeks with a cool high-tech concept, a decent business plan, and enough courage to venture from their parents' basements to start a business amid urban blight.

Joseph Camilleri and fellow Township Council members adopted the no-nonsense ethics measure last fall.

LAKEWOOD - Under the heading of "Only in Lakewood," the school board has offered to hire an attorney who successfully sued the district at least 80 times. By a 6-1 margin, the board voted to appoint Michael Inzelbuch, who had the job for 10 years. The lone "no" vote came from board member Heriberto Rodriguez. After he voted no, NJ.com reports, someone in the audience could be heard saying "thank you," followed by applause from others in attendance. On the attorney's website, check out this slogan: "Every child deserves an appropriate education - at the district's expense."
