The Somerset Patriots, along with Flemington Car & Truck Country, Clinton Honda and Jaguar Land Rover Princeton have made a donation of 1,000 individual turkeys with all the trimmings to local families through the Food Bank Network of Somerset County and the Flemington Area Food Pantry.

The donation is expected to serve between 4,000 and 5,000 people this holiday season.

“At the dealerships and ballpark, we’ve always had the ethos ‘be kind, be fair, work hard, earn money, do good,’” said Steve Kalafer, founding chairman of Flemington Car & Truck Country and Clinton Honda and chairman emeritus of the Somerset Patriots. “While we strive to accomplish each of these goals on a daily basis throughout the year, the holiday season allows us to spend even more time being kind and doing good. We are honored and very fortunate to be able to make this donation to help those in need this holiday season.”

The team and dealerships will be making a donation to pay for the meals, consisting of turkeys and all the trimmings, to be served as complete dinners and distributed to families in need this holiday season.

“Thanksgiving is a time of year where we place extra focus on appreciating all the blessings we have in life,” said Jonathan Kalafer, co-owner of Flemington Car & Truck Country, Clinton Honda and Jaguar Land Rover Princeton and co-chairman of the Somerset Patriots. “It is also a time to remember others who may not be as fortunate. Many in the community are struggling to put food on the table and provide for their families. We hope this donation of turkey dinners helps make the holiday a little brighter and easier for them.”

The donation was announced on Tuesday afternoon at the Food Bank of Somerset County’s main warehouse in Bound Brook and the Flemington Area Food Pantry.

“We are grateful to our community for all they have given us, and we will always do our part to give back,” added Josh Kalafer, co-owner of Flemington Car & Truck Country and Clinton Honda, Chairman of Jaguar Land Rover Princeton and co-chairman of the Somerset Patriots. “Our family, our team, and our dealerships have always operated under the fact that we are part of a much larger, diverse, and special community beyond our doors. It’s crucial for all of us to do what we can, whenever possible, to make a difference.”

At the Food Bank of Somerset County, the Somerset Patriots were represented by Jonathan Kalafer and Josh Kalafer, President and General Manager Patrick McVerry and team mascot Sparkee, and were joined by Somerset County Freeholder Director Shanel Robinson and Freeholders Brian Levine and Melonie Marano.

“Every year some of our friends and neighbors need a little bit of help to celebrate with their families, but this year with COVID-19 and the economic uncertainty so many of us face, the need is much greater,” said Robinson. “The Kalafer family has always been ones to give back to Somerset County with the Somerset Patriots

One man has died in an eight-vehicle crash involving a commercial truck Wednesday night, which shut down Interstate 75 South in Middletown for several hours.

Luke Tenney, 39, of Cincinnati, was killed in the crash, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Lebanon Post. Eight others were injured and taken to area hospitals.

COVID-19 Travel Advisory: Ohioans urged to avoid 16 states

The crash was reported at 7 p.m. just before the exit to Ohio 122. The highway remained closed most of the night; however, the right shoulder was opened to divert traffic onto Ohio 122, according to the highway patrol. I-75 South has since been reopened.

As of 11 p.m. troopers investigating the crash had not yet asked for any wreckers to remove any vehicles from the crash scene.

The patrol dispatch did not have information on the severity of the victim’s injuries, though OSHP reported in a release that four victims were taken to Atrium Medical Center, two were taken to UC’s West Chester Hospital and two were taken to Kettering Health Network’s Middletown location.

The cause and sequence of events that led to the crash remains under investigation, but the release said that alcohol and drugs did not appear to be a factor.

Dispatchers originally reported nine vehicles were involved in the crash, but a later release reported that only eight vehicles, including the truck, were involved.

The fatal crash comes as the region was hit by heavy rainfall; however, the patrol said it was too early to tell whether the weather was a factor in the crash.

Also, highways are busier than usual on the eve of Thanksgiving for the upcoming holiday, though AAA reports that travel is down from years past due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pandemic expected to stunt holiday travel in Ohio

Here’s some good news if you’re traveling through Dubai any time soon: Emirates has brought back its popular Dubai Connect package for customers transiting through Dubai International Airport (DXB).

Qualifying passengers receive a free night at a four or five-star hotel, one free meal and ground transportation to and from the airport. This is undoubtedly a response to the drop in tourism caused by the global pandemic. With fewer tourists coming to Dubai for vacation, tapping into transiting passengers is one way to drum up tourism.

Travelers who choose to take advantage of this offer can get a UAE visa on arrival. Dubai also has testing requirements, which vary, depending on where you’re coming from. Most passengers need to present a negative PCR test taken up to 96 hours before arrival. Meanwhile, travelers from Germany and the UK can take a free COVID test at Dubai Airport.

Who qualifies for Dubai Connect?

Emirates passengers in all cabin classes who have a stopover of 10-24 hours qualify for Dubai Connect. Bookings made through a travel agent are also eligible. Fares must be on Emirates-operated flights, including ones marketed by Qantas. Codeshare flights are not eligible, with the exception of EK5000 and QF8000.

Keep in mind that the Dubai Connect package is only available if you’re booking the shortest connection time possible. In other words, you can’t just book the flight with the longest layover if there is a shorter one available.

As for hotels, you’ll likely be put up at the Copthorne or the Le Méridien Airport Hotel Dubai. Both are very nice hotels close to Dubai Airport.

If you’re unable to leave the airport, you can still access the Dubai Connect airport lounge during your layover, free of charge.

How to book a Dubai Connect package

To book your free accommodations, you’ll need to book a qualifying Emirates flight. Then head over o the Dubai Connect page and provide your travel information (booking number, name, etc.). You will then receive instructions for booking your free hotel and ground transportation.

Bottom line

The Dubai Connect package is the latest effort on behalf of Emirates to drum up business in a global pandemic. In July, Emirates became the first airline to offer free COVID-19 travel insurance, providing peace of mind for travelers who are concerned about getting sick during their journey.

While Dubai has remained open for tourism, global travel demand is still way down and airlines like Emirates are in survival mode. By offering free hotel stays and ground transportation, Emirates may appeal to travelers looking for more value. The Dubai Connect package also encourages transiting passengers

A former Alabama walk-on football player was killed in a car accident just days after celebrating his marriage.

Rowdy Harrell, a linebacker from 2009-12 from Moundville, died Tuesday night along with his wife while driving in the Florida Keys. Harrell, 30, went on to enjoy success as tire carrier in the NASCAR world working with Hendricks Motorsports.

He and his new bride Blakley were married on Saturday and they were traveling to their honeymoon when the accident occurred. It was a head-on collision on US-1, The Miami Herald reported.

The Hale County High School graduate was part of three national championship teams in 2009, 2011 and 2012 while graduating with a degree in human performance and exercise science.

The auto racing world came calling after graduation and he quickly gained acclaim for his work on the pit crew. He was twice a Xfinity Series champion pit crew member with JR Motorsports.

“Our entire team is absolutely devastated at the loss of Rowdy and Blakley,” said Greg Ives, Harrell’s crew chief for the past six seasons, in a statement released by Hendrick Motorsports. “They were such positive, giving and passionate people who could not have been a more perfect match. Rowdy had an energetic and infectious personality. He was the heart and soul of our team and always kept us motivated, no matter the circumstance.”

News Release

November 26, 2020

Toronto City Council today unanimously approved the MoveTO action plan. This plan will help manage congestion and build a more resilient, modern and safe transportation system.

The MoveTO plan proposes five key measures that will help make the city’s transportation system more resilient in response to the effects of COVID-19 on Toronto’s overall transportation network.

The five key proposed actions that will launch starting next year include:

  • ‘Smart’ traffic signals – automatically adjusted signal timing based on actual traffic demand. Staff are proposing 500 locations over the next five years.
  • ‘Intelligent’ intersections – helps to improve safety at intersections for pedestrians and cyclists. Staff are proposing 100 locations over the next two years.
  • Advanced Transit Signal Priority (ATSP) – detects buses running behind schedule and extends green times when necessary. There are currently 400 locations with Transit Signal Priority in the city and staff are proposing to accelerate the implementation of ATSP on 100 more priority locations over the next two years with a focus on key TTC corridors across the city.
  • Construction Hub Pilot Program expansion – this program helps manage traffic and reduce congestion caused by construction around work zones, improves communication with the local community, and keeps people safe. An expansion of the pilot is proposed and will include three new locations: Lakeshore Hub, Downtown Hub and East Harbour. The next step is a focus on working with developers to do more to reduce the amount of time the right-of-way is closed due to construction.
  • Transportation Demand Management Strategy – a set of measures to help avoid congestion at specific times, locations, and on certain modes of transportation. Staff propose building on the existing Smart Commute program with local employers to provide additional supports for commuters, while developing strategies to address more localized instances of congestion.

These five recommended strategies aim to reduce travel times and improve travel reliability for vehicles, improve safety and optimize movement for pedestrians and people on bikes at intersections, improve transit operations, coordinate construction activities to minimize impacts to the transportation network and improve safety, and help employers to reduce travel demand and greenhouse gas emissions.

The MoveTO plan builds on the work the City has done to positively impact congestion, while also considering safer streets, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and taking further steps towards a more equitable transportation network in Toronto. Some of these strategies include the recently approved Freight and Goods Movement Strategy, the Traffic Agents program and the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan.

The full interim MoveTO report is available online.


“MoveTO will help keep people moving safely throughout Toronto. This plan delivers smart, common-sense approaches that will help pedestrians, cyclists, transit riders, and drivers get around our city. I have urged City staff to have the technology in place as quickly as possible to make sure we have a more modern and safer transportation system as soon as possible that responds and adapts to traffic in real time. These are solutions that
