Hey meltedopsicle!

Thanks for giving me the details. I do need to print stuff quite often so it's good to know about the all the options with their details.

Do you mind telling me the place where you get discounts for big printing jobs? I just found out about Sky Printing LLC on Montgomery street that does bulk printing as well. (min $30 job). In the email, they said they're open to street traffic from 6 am - noon. Am still waiting for her to get back to me about the printing rates.

Pecoraro Bakery no longer bakes on premises

It seems they've changed hands since my last visit (which was some time ago) and they no longer use their coal-fired oven, but instead bake elsewhere (the person was new and had no idea if coal fired oven were used or where exactly they were baked but did say the owner also owns Antique bakery in Hoboken).

2nd street bakery does still use coal, but they don't have many breads. Wondering if there are any coal oven bread bakeries left in the area? In Hoboken Marie's oven was knocked down for condos, Dom's is rumored to now use a combo of coal and gas (though I don't know for sure).

Coal baking provides a specific texture that can't be replicated with gas.

There isn't too much vacant up by me. Closest thing I can think of is a small lot on Rt 139. Lots of tear-downs and new construction going on though.

Last year, they had cooking classes and private seatings. Not sure if that's still happening. Their website would tell.

re: frosted windows. I went for one private event. People off the street kept coming in. It wasn't a big problem for me, because I was only there for a few hours, but when your kitchen is the front of the house, it must get old to stop what you're doing to explain to the Central Ave regulars that they can't come in.

Political Insider: Mayor Fulop says the city is prospering and in good hands

By:   Agustin C. Torres | The Jersey Journal The Star-Ledger
February 28, 2015 at  2:59 PM

Listening to Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop's State of the City speech on Tuesday, one gets a sense that the Hudson County seat is slowly coming out of its economic hibernation. The engine that drives the rest of New Jersey has been pushed for more speed and Fulop and company are trying to energize our local track by having installed a friendlier and accommodating development approval process.

What everyone hears at these State of Whatevers are upbeat and positive narratives. Jobs, housing, municipal services and safe streets are all the right ingredients for a staying-in-office recipe. In Fulop's case, though, there is more at stake. By ringing the improving economy bell, he is hoping the echo is loud enough to be heard outside of Hudson County.

You have to give him credit for effort. While the State of the City was one big "Make It Yours" branding commercial, he's not working with a vivid imagination but real props. While there will always be Downtown projects, major development is making its way up the Palisades toward Journal Square, McGinley Square and the Marion sections of the city. A push for a West Side light rail spur extension would make development of the west bank of the city a certainty.

I don't want to list all the projects on the drawing board because you can find them on nj.com/hudson.

Fulop headlining Sussex Democrats’ ‘winter gala’

Fulop headlining Sussex Democrats’ ‘winter gala’

New Jersey Herald

Feb 28, 2015 11:14 PM EST

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, widely seen as a possible Democratic candidate for governor in 2017, will be making a visit to Sussex County.

Fulop is the star attraction at the Sussex County Democratic Committee's “winter gala” on March 7. The $75-per-ticket event will be held at the Farmstead Golf and Country Club in Andover Township.

Fulop, 38, is in his second year as mayor. He is the latest in a long line of Democrats with presumed statewide ambitions to take an interest in Sussex County despite Republicans having more than a 2-to-1 edge in voter registration.

49 school trailers in use Fixing them could cost as much as $3.6 million

by      Al Sullivan Reporter staff writer                                         
Mar 01, 2015

With trailers housing classrooms at nearly every school in the district, the Jersey City Board of Education is reviewing its options for replacing or doing away with those that are in the worst shape.

The district has 52 trailers, and 49 are used for classrooms. The district has evaluated its fleet, looking at their age and condition to determine how cost effective it will be to replace them.

During the Feb. 18 board meeting, District Business Administrator Luiggi Campana said estimates to repair or replace trailers across the entire district range from about $400,000 to $3.6 million.

The condition of the trailers varies, Campana said, with some of the older more robust trailers in better condition than newer ones. The draft document on the trailer evaluation is over 500 pages, he said.

I know this isn't JC related but Marcus Kerttu, a 15-year-old Swedish tourist with Asperberger's (on the autism spectrum) has disappeared from a Canal Street McDonald's yesterday evening.

Marcus stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 120 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a black hat, black coat, blue jeans, and black sneakers. Police believe he has been obsessively riding on the 2, 5, and N lines.

The FedEx at Exchange Place isn't open on weekends but you can plug in a USB drive to print your stuff. I haven't been there in a while but at the time it was 29 cents per page (compare to 10 cents at the library - alas, if it were open). I can't remember if the machines at Staples take USBs (and you do have to load some money on a Staples copy card), but I'm pretty sure both of them don't have public use computers.

For future reference - I just remembered that a UPS that I use a lot in another town allows you to email them stuff to print (vs. you using their computers). I never bothered to ask if the Newport UPS does that because they don't offer a volume discount whereas I get 6 cents per page at the other UPS. (I'm usually printing/copying a lot more than a few pages so it matters.)

WASHINGTON — Gov. Chris Christie finished 10th in the annual Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll, finishing not only behind Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush but also business leaders Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina.

Menendez staffers dodging grand jury probe questioners

As new information shows that Senator Menendez had former Senate Majority leader Harry Reid with him when he met with Kathleen Sibelius of HHS-when the NJ Democrat Senator was looking for favorable treatment for his large donor and fellow 'vacationer' in the Dominican Republic.

http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/ ... ng_in_g.html#incart_river

You remember, the guy who had all the Medicare/Medicaid billing issues-and whose private plane rides Menendez didn't repay until years late when caught.

Okemo is great. Definitely a nice place to learn -- lots of nice wide green trails.

I've walked by Olive and Orange Caterers on Central Avenue recently and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. I remember when they opened and they were serving dinner party style meals (very expensive), and the place looked beautiful. Now the windows are covered with frosted plastic and it looks kind of junky and uninhabited. Are they closed? Are they just operating as a catering kitchen now? Did they get tired of people looking in the windows?


The plastic strips were put up to keep people from looking in, I guess it could get tiring. They never were a restaurant per se. It was always my understanding that they catered to private parties, promising a culinary experience.

There's a hidden FedEx Kinko's over in Exchange Place, but I don't think they're open weekends. The one in Hoboken is open though, and it's right near the train station.
