    Several New Jersey newspapers have suspended delivery of their Tuesday print editions due to the superstorm that's socked the state with rain and strong winds, but the newspapers will be published online.

      Richard Vezza, publisher of The Star-Ledger of Newark, says delivery was suspended for that newspaper and six others owned by Advance Publications. He cited the deteriorating weather conditions, saying company officials didn't want to jeopardize the safety of the papers' production and delivery personnel and other contractors.
     
    The Tuesday newspapers will be delivered with Wednesday's editions, as long as conditions permit.
     
    Besides The Star-Ledger, deliveries will be suspended for The Times of Trenton, The Jersey Journal, The Express-Times of Easton, Pa., The Gloucester County Times, Today's Sunbeam in Salem and the News of Cumberland County.
