Michelle Rodriguez used to live in the Hieghts and own a store on Central Ave. Rappers Hitchcock and Ranson of A-Team are from Montgomery.

For any fellow Food Network nerds out there, there was an episode of "Boy Meets Grill" on Cuban food where Bobby Flay was in town and went to La Nueva Isla and Hard Grove, and the camera followed him walking on Grove St. between places. And of course didn't "Roker on the Road" go to Melt a couple years back?

I tend to think that the Hudson County Democratic Organization supports Flood and that Flood supports these 3 candidates is a negative.

It looks as if Heather Martin has learned something about the nuts and bolts of school construction from her job helping to sell environmental construction services at EAI.

See:

http://www.njmayornet.com/Spring%2005%20Martin.htm

But my gut reaction is that probably the HCDO is supporting Martin because it thinks that she'll know how to get control of the pork barrel.

If someone out there has any evidence that Martin wouldn't just funnel work to some Tony Soprano type of guy, I'd welcome hearing about it.

Just remembered I've also seen Diane Neal from Law and Order:SVU(the redhead/blonde DA) in the Hard Grove Cafe and read in an article once that she lives in Jersey City.

Also saw Ed Helms from the Daily Show get off the PATH once, but he was wandering around the Grove St. "park" area on a cell phone looking lost so I doubt he's actually a resident.

Re: HUDSON COUNTY DFA ENDORSES MAHDI HEMINGWAY AND VERNON RICHARDSON FOR JERSEY CITY BOARD OF EDUCAT
Newbie

Thanks to mrrogers for your support. We are indeed trying to build a countywide presence with which we can function as a network between various grassroots organizations and hopefully take on the machine in an organized and effective way. It's a long-term project, but we're definitely in a much stronger position today than when we started two years ago, so things are coming along.

Please do remember to vote today for our outstanding school-board candidates, Mahdi Hemingway (line 12A on the ballot) and Vernon Richardson (6A). Polls are open from 2-9 p.m.

I can also personally say that I've heard very good things about Michael Esposito. While DFA endorsed only two candidates in the race -- Hemingway and Richardson -- there are three seats up today, and I personally recommend casting the third vote for Esposito, in line 9A.

The Allure of Sardinia Comes to Museo dell?Emigrazione Italiana in Jersey City

The Allure of Sardinia Comes to New York Area

Celebrations for the ?Sardinian Week Around World? in the Big Apple

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2006 -- The flavors of the Sardinia Region will be in New York from April 28th to the 30th , for the celebration of the ?Sardinian Week Around the World.? This suggestive island with an intriguing history will be celebrated in the US with gatherings, tastings and even a comedy in the Sardinian language in the heart of Broadway.

Promoter of the initiative is Circolo Shardana-USA, a non-profit organization founded in 2000 in New York. Although numerically smaller than other Italian immigrant groups, and dispersed in a vast territory, members of the Circolo are quite motivated and well organized. Circolo Shardana has so far distinguished itself with intense activity dedicated to fostering and promoting the appreciation and the knowledge of this island, its values and traditions, and has established itself among the many Italian regional organizations in the area.

Among its accomplishments, Circolo Shardana organized an educational tour for 13 Sardinian mayors, who got the opportunity to meet with their counterparts of several small cities in New York and New Jersey. In May 2005 the Circolo organized a conference on ?Sardinia, its Language, its Culture? at Fordham University, with special focus on the literary works of Sardinian writer Grazia Deledda, Nobel price winner for Literature. In some cases, the Circolo provided crucial help, like with the promotion of ancient Sardinian instrument players at the New York International Festival of Mediterranean Music. The collaboration was renewed the following year, with a concert by the musical group ?Tenores? of Oniferi.

Throughout the years, the association has offered its support to several visiting Sardinians, especially graduates coming to universities and hospitals in New York to study and/or undertake research. Among the members of Circolo Shardana, there are, in fact, medical doctors, researchers, managers in the finance and technology industry, and some renowned chefs. Each year, the Circolo also organizes a ?Day in the Park? (?Giornata al Parco?) and the traditional convivial gathering ?Sardinian Night? (?Serata Sarda?), which are simple and nourishing occasions to share values and emotions among family and friends; they also provide good opportunities to speak Sardo, a romance language (its revival was underscored by the recognition as a minority language within the European Union).

The program consists of three events, each one being a good opportunity to learn more about the ?Made in Sardinia.? The rich agenda starts on Friday, April 28, with the celebration of ?Sa Die de sa Sardigna? (which commemorates the short but significant expulsion of the Piedmontese from the island in 1794). There will be a ?Sardinia Open House,? at the elegant premises of the New York Academy of Science in Manhattan (63rd Street and Fifth Avenue), from 6 to 9 PM. The same event will be taking place on the following day at the Museo dell?Emigrazione Italiana in Jersey City (New Jersey). The highlight of the celebrations will be on Sunday, April 30, 2006 at 1:00 PM, with the performance, in the Sardinian language, of the comedy ?Cicciu Fruschedda? by Antonio Garau, at the Sage Theatre, in Times Square! The protagonist of the event will be the ?Tragodia? group, arriving directly from the island for this occasion.

?We are happy to present the splendor and some typical products of our island on such a joyous occasion,? says Bruno OrrĂ¹, President of Circolo Shardana, ?a special acknowledgment goes to Regione Sardegna, which always supports and encourages any initiative by Sardinian organizations worldwide to promote the island in every aspect.?

For further information and reservations, please call (908) 212 7846 or visit www.settimanasardany.org

Years ago I heard a rumor that Naomi Campbell owned one of the brownstones on Hamilton Park. Then a year or two later, I heard a rumor that she sold it. Either way, I never spotted her either.

It sounds as if Hemingway is an obvious pick.

What about:

- Heather Martin: I guess she builds schools for a living. Is she someone who's a part of the machine or someone outside who understands how the machine works and would stop the crooks?

- Cheatham: Some people in this thread have already praised the guy. Any more reactions?

- Jenny Campbell: Would she, basically, be a good voice for the the sorts of parents who are desperate to get their kids into Learning Community?

Yes, Ralph still works out there. I see him often. He has great dedication and barely rests between exercises.

Years ago I saw Queen Latifah in the Shop Rite. I'm told she has family in the area.

It's a little disgusting that the J Journal didn't even mention the election today (polls are open 2 to 9 pm). Yeah, Morgan rightly knocked Dr. E., but what about a line at least mentioning the election! In case anyone cares, I'll be clicking on DeRosa, Hemingway, and Richardson.

The great pianist/composer Andrew Hill lives on 8th, west of Coles. I've seen him around, still reasonably spry at about 80. Not that he's a celebrity but he damn well should be.

The guys from Pavement were rooming with David Berman from the Silver Jews in Jersey City. There's even a version of the "Rattled by the Rush" video on their Slow Century DVD that was filmed in the Pavonia/Newport PATH station.

Stephen Malkmus (lead singer) and David Berman were working at the Whitney Museum in NYC as security guards while they lived in Jersey City. Either Mark Ibold or Scott Kanneberg drove a bus too(not sure if it was a Jersey bus or NYC bus).

There's more about them in Jersey City on the DVD and in the "Perfect Sound Forever" book about Pavement. They talk about how crazy Jersey City was and how sketchy it was to live there. Not sure if they were in the Grove area, JSQ area or Pavonia area but it was in the late 80's/early 90's.

Re: Peruvian: Ceviche's, in the Heights

Last time I went there, the waiter said they were very busy on the weekend. That's a good thing, because Ceviche's is one of those places I'd want to thrive in JC. Not bastardized chain joints, or expensive ripoff places, but authentic, ethnic, friendly restaurants in the not-too-expensive part of town. On my last visit the waiter/bartender (yes, they do have a liquor licence) bought me an espresso while I was waiting for the takeout to be prepared (as I am a repeat customer). They've been open about 1 year, IIRC.

All in all - please patronize them if you can. And no, I am not associated with the place.

Please vote for Mahdi Hemingway on 12a, this guy is the real deal.Young enough to relate to the same kids roaming our streets and smart and tough enough to set them straight.We vote in a young man from the projects and city hall will have a fit. OK, Mahdi runs an after school program for kids in trouble and would like all schools open till six pm.
Runs a basketball tournimant yearly between dif. housing sites to relive tention.
Aide to councilmen Steve Fulop.
Endorced by local DFA...Democracy for america.
Endorced by parent group seeking televised board meetings.
backed by late mayor Glen Cunninghams wife sandy.
This is an astounding young man who can make a difference if given a chance.

I second the opinion, Ceviche's is great, now if only they' d let you know they serve alcohol... Does not say so on their menu, the last time I went I really would've liked a drink to go with my meal, if only I'd have known..

The ambiance is quite nice too! Definitely worth a drive to the Heights... I think it's BYOB, which makes it even more of a bargain.
