LAMBERTVILLE -  Suds will be flowing Sunday night, as Dawn dish liquid has invited the entire town to a Family Dinner on North Union Street to see if it can clean 5,760 dishes... with just one bottle of dish liquid. The company is building a 2,000-foot-long table, cooking up a three-course meal, and will be cleaning piles of dishes, as the townsfolk chow down elbow-to-elbow. With all this incredible effort, expense and publicity, we have a strong suspicion this one little bottle will do magic.

ON THE RAILS - Maybe we should just keep going with the "Summer of Hell," as NJ Transit seems to perform best in crisis. Politico reports the transit agency actually improved its performance to nearly 93 percent of trains arriving within six minutes of the scheduled time. Get this: less than 10 percent of the Manhattan-bound morning rush hour trains were late in July, compared to a dismal May, when more than half of the trains were late. Perhaps NJ Transit should just keep diverting trains out of congested Penn Station and keep them headed to Hoboken, where passengers can take ferries and actually get to work on time. All are praying for a "Fall of Hell."

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

STATEWIDE - If you listen to the President, America is doing just awesome. We've got low unemployment and a super-hot stock market. Jobs and Money. Money and Jobs. What else could you possibly want? But NJ Spotlight is throwing some water on the big party, noting the pace of personal-income growth in recent years tells a different story. In New Jersey, personal incomes have grown by only a little more than 1 percent annually since the Great Recession began in late 2007. So, perhaps all those booming financial markets are a lovely perk for the wealthy and those jobs, jobs, jobs aren't paying what they should or could.

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
STATEWIDE - Welcome to the Garden State! Well, that doesn't sound like news, but apparently it is. The governor has signed off on a bill that gives New Jersey an official "new" slogan: the "Garden State." Flashy, right? But, uh, hasn't the "Garden State" been on our license plates since the 1950s? And, says Politico, the nickname was coined 141 years ago. But, apparently, we needed an actual law - A-3437 - to designate the "Garden State" as our slogan. Lawmakers were a bit defensive, arguing the state has 9,701 farms, covering 715,057 acres. And New Jersey is a huge producer of cranberries, bell peppers, spinach, peaches, blueberries, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, apples, sweet corn, and snap beans. So, yeah, dammit, we are the Garden State. Officially.
