I had a chicken parm with added onions the other day, and it was decidedly average at best. Not a lot of sauce, huge mess of largely cut white onions.

I'll give em another shot, due to the proximity, but unimpressive so far.

NJ residents commuting to work in NY pay a shitload of NYS taxes, and think about the services they consume-breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, taxis, haircuts-I could go on for hours.

Expecting NY to not pay their 'fair share' (as the Democrats like to say) is stupid when it comes to partnering on projects that benefit both, and it's not fair as well. Which is why Christie told them to call back when they're ready to be a partner and not a taker of NJ taxpayer money.

No and yes. Synagogues have to charge dues to stay in business and provide semi-living wages for rabbis and cantors as well as cover costs for facilities, schools, classes, and other things.

For those people who do not belong to a synagogue but want to go to services (which are some of the holiest times of the year) they are often asked to offset the cost by making a donation. (Sadly, one of those costs has become security but more often it's utilities, staff, babysitting, food, etc.) It is often the case that the number of people at services rises exponentially during the High Holidays and many unaffiliated Jews suddenly find themselves in need of a place to be. It's extraordinarily generous of Temple Beth El to provide this.

20-year-old fights off armed robber in Jersey City, police

The Jersey Journal

A fearless 20-year-old refused to give up his cellphone this morning when he was confronted by a gun-toting robber around 12:15 a.m. at Arlington and Claremont avenues in Jersey City, according to a police report.

Instead of handing over his phone, the 20-year-old struck the robber's hand, which was holding the gun, with his device, the report states.

The gun fell to the ground and fired off a round.

The startled robber ran off, the report states, presumably with his gun.

Police later recovered a shell casing in the area.

Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop raises money for Massachusetts candidate for governor

Jersey City mayor Steve Fulop raises money for Massachusetts candidate for governor: The Auditor

By The Auditor | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
September 14, 2014 at 9:45 AM

TRENTON — Much has been made about Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop traveling around the state, presumably to lay the groundwork for a future gubernatorial run.

But The Auditor noticed that Fulop, a Democrat, has begun reaching out-of-state, too.

Massachusetts campaign finance reports show that Fulop and several other New Jerseyans – most of whom have ties to the mayor – over the last couple weeks gave donations to Massachusetts Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley, who eked out a primary victory on Tuesday.

Each donor gave $500.

That included Fulop and the Jersey City Democratic Committee; Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, a Jersey City native and former deputy mayor; Andrew Hodulik, whose accounting firm does work for Jersey City agencies; and Gary Taffet, the former chief of staff to Gov. Jim McGreevey who is doing insurance work through Jersey City’s broker.

The Auditor heard that Fulop personally called New Jersey contacts to ask them to contribute.

So what drew Fulop to Coakley?

One of Coakley’s supporters is Dan Fireman, the son and business partner of Paul Fireman, the Boston billionaire who owns a golf course in Jersey City and wants to build a 95-story casino and entertainment complex there.

Dan Fireman has an ActBlue page that asks donors to contribute $500, and was co-chair of a fundraiser to celebrate Coakley’s 61st birthday in July.

In a statement, Fulop adviser Bob Sommer said the mayor is working with Dan Fireman to support Coakley, and said Fulop is donating money for the Wisconsin Democratic candidate for governor as well.

"We are excited about the hundreds of jobs the Fireman family have created in Jersey City, the more than one million dollars they have raised for our community's non profit organizations and the 25,000 jobs to be created with their casino. Jersey City is blessed to have such a great family involved," Sommer said. "Even better is we are working together to support Democratic candidates outside New Jersey, like Martha Coakley in Massachusetts and Mary Burke, the Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate to defeat Scott Walker."

Bill Pascrell III — a Trenton lobbyist who’s representing Paul Fireman in his casino quest — gave $500 to Coakley in April. And in September, so did Ed Farmer, the former chief of staff to Pascrell’s dad, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-8th Dist.).

She is very lucky she wasn't introduced with a bottle over the head. The in your face confrontation / rant is not the way to go ... she can't issue fines or force these 'slobs' to clean up after themselves, but what she can do is have those with authority and power to issue citations ... I'd imagine she could arrange police and sanitation officers to issue citations and fund a late night blitz to do so (overtime) ... She could also help mitigate the problem with more trash cans and signage (warning that litter louts would not be tolerated and fined accordingly with legislation as reference on the sign) in hotspots.

She could also investigate how many citations are actually being issued annually for this type of litter dropping (noting where and what time these citations are being issued) - She might discover that the department responsible for enforcement are inept and a review of management and frontline officers is needs to better manage the problem!

Maybe some creative trash cans would help promote less litter and voluntary compliance to the problem !

It is disturbing that anyone would view this conduct as admirable. Profanity is the feeble mind attempting to express itself forcefully.

No one can argue, loud noise and litter late at night is a bad thing. Stipulated. This is not how a City Official should behave. Is this Mayor's staffer referring to some specific police brutality that she is privy to? Our media savvy Mayor must make a statement and take a position on this.

On the bright side, she does have the "moves like Jagger."

1) While "lowlife" is a strong choice of terms, the term "smear" is equally powerful and judgmental, as it connotes inaccuracy. Per rock-solid authority - and, we're talking virtually straight from the horse's mouth, here - the prior post is not inaccurate.

2) Exactly how is lying to gain entry to a non-profit and the trust of its leaders innocuous? Especially when that non-profit's confidential property later ends up in the hands of a political campaign (and promoted as if it were the campaign's organic work)?

3) I suppose I didn't need to name the "City Hall Employee," nor "smear" her any further -- she's already been named here, and her actions as denoted in this thread speak volumes about her character.

Of course, I'm new to the board, so I guess I'm not allowed to be outraged that a member of the Mayor's Administration -- and really, his inner office -- behaved so inexcusably and offensively. I will do my best to post a couple thousand pro-Fulop replies, so that I may gain enough insight into the world to credibly assert even the slightest negativity about his Administration. Though I'm a just a first-time caller, I am a long-time listener -- and tonight, I finally got fed up with the rope that certain folks get here.

Stopped in for the first time today and I think this is by far the best New York Style slice I've had in Jersey City (really like Elio's and 2 boots but I put them in a different category). The pizza had a really nice thin crust, with a good balance of sauce and cheese and if they can hammer out the details I think this could be a great spot.

I went in at 12:15 and the pizza looked like it had been sitting there for a while, so that's an issue. Also it took about 3+ dudes to figure out my change but, whatever. I really thought the pizza was very good. Definitely better than most of the crap that passes for slices around Grove St. While I agree that the amount of pizza joints is ridiculous I also believe that they should continue to open more spots until somebody makes an edible slice of Pizza. It's like some type of weird Darwinian experiment where random pizza places keep opening and we see how long until one produces an acceptable slice. Maybe this place is it.

Political Insider: Activist shakes up freeholder meeting by questioning OEM appointee

Political Insider: Activist shakes up freeholder meeting by questioning OEM appointee's business ties

By Agustin C. Torres | The Jersey Journal
September 13, 2014 at 6:35 AM

On Thursday evening, the Hudson County Freeholders approved a resolution reappointing Mickey McCabe, owner of a Bayonne-based ambulance service, as the county Office of Emergency Management's (OEM) deputy coordinator of medical services for a three-year term, starting immediately.

It seemed like it would be cut and dry, until the public was allowed to speak on items on the meeting agenda. Jersey City activist April Kuzas started asking questions that created a bit of tension in the room. Kuzas was — let’s say — more than suggesting that, in his new county position, McCabe has influence in the issuing of grants while running a private ambulance service. Business Administrator Abe Antun and several freeholders said that McCabe is not paid by the county and that he serves as a volunteer. They added that McCabe recuses himself on where grants and other funds are directed. In other words, just because McCabe helps run things, doesn’t mean he exerts or has power over anything.

Kuzas, somewhat dubious of this response, then asked about how McCabe can be in charge of a large OEM bus, a converted commercial bus that is one big ambulance capable of carrying 18 to 20 people. The city resident questioned why McCabe was allowed to have his name on the side of the bus, along with the OEM logo and Hudson County seal. At first, some of the freeholders sounded surprised and then asked for proof. She showed a website with a picture of the bus and logos.

Seated in the audience, McCabe was asked to respond. He said that the bus was one of about 11 federally funded buses issued statewide. For any OEM to obtain one, it had to be responsible for garaging, maintaining, providing insurance, and fueling ($600 per full tank) the vehicle. McCabe said the vehicle was offered to any of the local emergency agencies in the county. Freeholders accepted the argument that the “McCabe Ambulance” logo is on the bus to identify who is in charge of maintaining the vehicle.

McCabe said, that earlier that day, the bus — assigned to the Jersey City Fire Department — was used to transport 28 childcare center children who accidently drank water with some bleach in it to the Jersey City Medical Center. He also noted other times the bus was used. McCabe said it was utilized during a blizzard and, with the help of other OEM buses from nearby counties, to transport patients from a Hoboken hospital that was threatened with flooding by Superstorm Sandy.

“What other benefits does a private company get, that his company gets, by being the deputy coordinator?” Kuzas asked the freeholders. Hoboken Freeholder Anthony Romano said it involves the federal government and not the county. McCabe said it all involves a network of emergency services, not just in the county, but statewide. “It’s a brotherhood,” he added.

Not satisfied, after the meeting, Kuzas said she should learn more about McCabe’s role with the county and his influence with OPRA requests.

Obviously, the real concern here for her, and some of her fellow Jersey City activists, is the possibility of the nonprofit Jersey City Medical Center losing a contract bid to provide Jersey City with ambulance services to CarePoint Health/McCabe, a for-profit partnership which the activists must believe includes the Jersey Devil.

BRUCE ALMIGHTY

This week, Jersey City businessman and activist Bruce Alston held a press conference announcing his intention to run for Democratic Assemblyman Charles Mainor’s 31st District seat in the June primary. Alston tried to contain his usual Elmer Gantry high octane approach to public speaking, but halfway through his spiel, you could see him put it into fourth gear.
jjxalston0913.jpgView full sizeBruce Alston announces he's running for an Assembly seat.Courtesy of the Alston campaign

Alston described his announcement as an attempt to combine community with public service. He said that while African-Americans help a black man be elected president of the United States, Alston added, “We have still not been able to ignite change in urban America.”

He insists that his election to the Legislature will mean promoting an agenda that will provide hope for residents of both Bayonne and Jersey City.

I assume the specifics will come later.

Assemblyman Jeff Dublin did not seem overly impressed by Alston's entrance into the assembly race. While acknowledging that he expects a large number of candidates — even saying he wouldn’t be surprised to see Team Walker founder and past collegiate and St. Anthony High School hoop star Jerry Walker take a jump shot at the seat — but Dublin denies that he has joined the rush. I do expect him to announce it down the road.

Sen. Sandra Cunningham, right now, appears to support Mainor but the assemblyman is lucky to have survived this long. It stops for him. I can't see Fulop backing him. The problem is that the mayor has yet to decide on just who will represent the city. The groveling may commence.

Are there any future effective political leaders of the city’s African-American community? There are openings.

If this was a more serious emergency, young students would be dead. This is a charter school.
