Nation Briefs BUD­GET CRI­SIS HIT­TING N.J.

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

TREN­TON, N.J.» New Jerseyans were feel­ing the im­pact as a state gov­ern­ment shut­down took ef­fect Satur­day, shut­ter­ing parks and other pub­lic sites and dis­rupt­ing ferry ser­vice to Lib­erty and El­lis is­lands.

Among those af­fected were a group of Cub Scouts forced to leave a state park camp­site and peo­ple try­ing to ob­tain or re­new doc­u­ments from the state motor ve­hi­cle com­mis­sion, among the agen­cies closed by the shut­down.

Mean­while, Repub­li­can Gov. Chris Christie and the Demo­crat-led Leg­is­la­ture re­turned to the state­house Satur­day to try to re­solve the shut­down, the state’s first since 2006 and the first un­der Christie. It came about after lead­ers failed to reach an agree­ment on a new bud­get by Fri­day night’s dead­line. Em­pire re­ported.

The bear ran through two of the men, push­ing them to the side of the trail, leav­ing El­liot and his cousin left in its path, El­liot’s fa­ther, Lu­cas, said.

“There was four of them in a line . My son was third,” El­liot’s fa­ther said.

The boy then raised his pump ac­tion shot­gun and shot the bear with bird­shot.

His fa­ther said the first shot did noth­ing, but two more downed the bear and fin­ish­ing shots by the boy and his un­cle killed it.
