Archbishop John Myers of Newark is, understandably, concerned about his retirement. So, according to NJ.com, he is adding a $500,000 addition to an already swanky home in New Jersey, complete with hot tub and swimming pool, fireplaces, etc. The report does not indicate who will be living with the archbishop in the house, which will tap out at about 7,500 square feet of living space. Perhaps the addition is being built to house a farmer, who will raise livestock on the property, maybe sheep, so that +Myers can acquire the smell.
