DRIVE through almost any neighborhood around the country, and class divisions are as clear as the gate around one community or the grittiness of another.

Well at least J.C. will get some affodable housing and with section 8 the government can help support the maintenance costs involved with home ownership. I wonder if they own the old State theater apartment building at the Square ?

Is section 8 the same as HuD ?

I would think hoping that route would limit the amount of rent they can earn as downtown is rising in cost.

Most likely contract out the tenant operations to a local property management company.

I agree. Basil did show up for his appointment but he never came back with an estimate. It was a waste of time.

Couple of concerns.
- First, they're renting and renters are not as invested in the area as owners.
- Second, they're paying all cash -- which will make it even harder for those of us buying for personal use to compete.
- Third, not sure to what degree they are really invested in improving the areas -- individual property owners are, not sure about corporations.


Exactly. Wouldn't be surprised if they went the Section 8 route just to assure a steady income with little maintenance.

Let them keep single shot or small clip hunting rifles. No one except the military and, thanks to an abundance of them in the wrong hands, police. Time to start regulating the so-called militia. It's got to be done and it will be.

Boy, after reading here and some other places it sounds like Prep is great if you and your kid agree that their "ideal young man" is what you want want him to be molded into. McNair sounds like the only pressure to conform is to perform academically, but naturally there's less school cohesion.

Prep must really be something though, I don't think I've known anyone who goes back and visits their high school. But maybe that's more of a private school thing?

KellyH
So sorry to make a mistake in "latrines", as I did mean latrine. Singular. Your comment of don't listen to this "asshole" is totally inappropriate but so common on jclist. Say something and get reamed a new one behind hidden names. Just an FYI -I've been going to Terry's for over 18 years. I've been in the kitchen, the basement (his bedroom) and the sleezy bar. I've seen his hairbrush atop the grill and I've seen the latrine look worse then the ones in Port Authority. I don't frequent the dive anymore because I know after Hurricane Sandy the place was probably never cleaned. Years ago he had a nice barmaid, name escapes me but she cleaned the latrine. She said if she didn't do it he would never care. I know that I frequented the place very often when she worked there. So KellyH know-it-all, this Asshole knows his shit - the place is a dive, he doesn't care so take your chances eating or drinking there. I didn't say he wasn't a nice guy what I said was he was not Mr. Clean and the place is beyond gross. You obviously stop in rarely - or you would know the difference - get your facts straight before you call someone an asshole....asshole !

Bubba weighs in:

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/01 ... ze-gun-culture-86443.html

Former President Bill Clinton warned a group of top Democratic donors at a private Saturday meeting not to underestimate the passions that gun control stirs among many Americans.

“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.

“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world."

Clinton dedicated a substantial portion of his 40-minute address before a joint meeting of the Obama National Finance Committee and a group of business leaders to the issue of guns and gun control, saying that it was a test-case for President Barack Obama’s grass-roots movements. (POLITICO was given a transferable ticket by an invited member of the committee.)

“The way the Obama campaign won Florida, won Ohio, won this election by more than projected was the combination of technology, social media and personal contact,” Clinton said. That’s “the only way that our side will ever be able to even up the votes in the midterms and as these issues come up, really touch people and talk to them about it.”

(PHOTOS: Politicians speak out on gun control)

Obama begins his second term facing an uphill battle on gun control — an emotional, divisive and difficult issue that the cool and pragmatic Obama would usually avoid.

Obama took 23 executive actions this week to curb gun violence, but his key proposals will need a vote from Congress to become law. With a GOP House unlikely to take up any new gun control measures — and even some Democrats expressing wariness — his only recourse is to make his case directly to the public.

Clinton said that Republicans have been struggling in presidential politics since 1992 — noting that 2004 was the only time a Republican has won the popular vote in more than 20 years. But, he said, the party has been successful in energizing its supporters for midterm elections.

“You have the power to really democratize America,” Clinton said. “You can do it on immigration reform, you can do it on these economic issues. You can do it on implementing the health care bill.”

But, Clinton warned, the issue of guns has a special emotional resonance in many rural states — and simply dismissing pro-gun arguments is counterproductive.

(PHOTOS: Will these guns be banned again?)

While some polls show that the public by-and-large supports several proposals for increased gun control, Clinton said that it’s not the public support that matters — it’s how strongly people feel about the issue.

“All these polls that you see saying the public is for us on all these issues — they are meaningless if they’re not voting issues,” Clinton said.

Two Dickinson High School freshmen have been charged in a string of robberies of Chinese restaurant delivery men this month, police said.

A 14-year-old Virginia Avenue boy and 16-year-old Bramhall Avenue boy were arrested Thursday and each is charged with four counts of robbery, Capt. Edgar Martinez said Friday.

On Tuesday at 2:42 p.m., a 40-year-old delivery man realized the Chestnut Street address he was delivering to did not exist, so he called the person who placed the order, a police report says.

Buy the JJ..a good newspaper




if only chinese delivery men were targeted, it should be a hate crime.

but this is simple, shoot the children and send the parents to jail, fine any kid who is friends of the two kids.

They brought out a neighbor of mine on montgomery street near VVP, and I've heard a lot of other stories too... This, in combination with tons of new buildings slated for rental in the next few years - I really wonder how it will impact the area, and the "vibe"...

Fingers crossed...

They have bought properties recently on 8th and Jersey Ave. They pay cash but I have heard of one homeowner declining their offer and selling to a private buyer. I heard he did it on principle. The Aussies will be either renting the properties or sitting on them awhile. Perhaps there are others who know more about the details? Great if your a seller, have a decent building and want to cash out without regard to your former neighbors. Yes it's true, most people want owners for neighbors, not renters.

I think they are betting that the US economy will rebound later this year and RE prices will also rebound or see a period of growth.

Looks like someone or something got hit by the light rail in Paulus Hook (Warren at Essex) folks inside and probably outside appear to be injured. Stay out of the area if you want to be able to drive.

Sucks if you were waiting on the light rail tonight. probably gonna be a long wait.

The kitchen at St. Paul's Lutheran Church at Five Corners is a commercial kitchen, and they rent it to small businesses and startups at a reasonable price (I believe it's about $25 an hour). They don't have a stand mixer right now, but the facilities include a double convection oven, large fridge, double sinks, commercial dishwasher, etc. They can tell you more if you give them a call.
