It seems some Newark, New Jersey residents have a bone to pick with Whitney Houstonís family.According to CNN affiliate CBS New York, the city's taxpayers aren't pleased with the more than $187,000 tab Newark picked up for police overtime during Houstonís funeral there in February.Some residents say the late singerís family should have paid for its own security at the New Hope Baptist Church, rather than have the city take on the overtime for close to 200 local police officers. http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2012/04/09/houston-funeral-costs-point-of-contention-in-newark/?hpt=hp_bn13
