Re: Court allows state to freeze aid to poorest districts (read: Jersey City)
Home away from home
Home away from home


I hope they don't cut the abbott programs, but it would be good if the state made sure people aren't getting rich off of stealiing funds. I wonder what they will find in auditing Jersey City's schools.


From the article:

The justices also ordered the Department of Education to go ahead with planned audits of four special needs districts -- Newark, Jersey City, Paterson and Camden -- and set a November deadline for their completion. Farber had argued the audits are needed to ensure the poor districts are properly spending billions of dollars in state aid while candidly conceding the state has "neglected its responsibility to provide sufficient fiscal oversight."

Mommy-to-be is drug-busted
Man, 23, held too
Tuesday, May 09, 2006

JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Cops busted an expectant mom and her boyfriend on drug charges after finding thousands of bags of heroin in the refrigerator of their Pacific Avenue apartment, reports said.

Naomi Lecher, 21, who is six months pregnant, and Ruben S. Castro, 23, were charged with selling drugs after cops raided their two-story home at about 7 p.m. Saturday, said Sgt. Edgar Martinez of the Jersey City police.

Cops began monitoring the home about five hours earlier, after receiving anonymous tips that Castro was planning to make a drug delivery that day.

Shortly after 3 p.m., police saw him leave the house and walk south on Pacific, carrying under his arm a square white object wrapped in a Spanish-language newspaper.

Thinking Castro was holding drugs, police stopped him on the corner of Johnston Avenue and Halliday Street. He dropped the paper and ran into a corner deli, Martinez said. Inside the white packaging, police found 500 plastic bags stamped "LRG" in green letters, which they suspected to contain heroin, Martinez said.

Moments later, as Castro was being arrested inside the deli, Lecher left the home and walked toward the store, Martinez said. As soon as she noticed the police, she ran back toward the house, Martinez said.

After securing a search warrant, cops and agents from the federal Drug Enforcement Agency searched the home about 7 p.m., where they found five large bags holding 15,820 smaller plastic bags of heroin stored in the refrigerator, said Martinez. The larger bags were marked "Rolex," "LRG," "Happy People" and "No Way Out."

Police also found Castro's suspected drug sale money, $2,123, in a dresser in the front bedroom, said Martinez.

While police were searching the home, Lecher complained of stomach pains; she was taken by ambulance to the Jersey City Medical Center.

Upon her release later Saturday night, she joined Castro in the Hudson County jail. Both are being held on various drug charges, Martinez said.

Bail was set at $300,000 in cash for each yesterday afternoon, said John Rosello, an official at Central Judicial Processing Court in Jersey City.

Court allows state to freeze aid to poorest districts (read: Jersey City)

Wow this is sad news for Jersey City Schools- anyone have their kids enrolled in public schools around here? love to hear some reaction..........

Court allows state to freeze aid to poorest districts

The New Jersey Supreme Court today (Tuesday) allowed the state to freeze aid to its 31 poorest school districts in order to balance the state budget, but also gave the districts a right to appeal for more funding.

The high court issued its unanimous ruling one week after it heard lawyers for the "special needs" school districts argue that with costs rising, flat state aid would translate into cuts in educational services. Attorney General Zulima Farber countered that given the state's "dire" budgetary circumstances, "we simply don't have the money" to increase educational funding.

The justices gave the special needs districts until May 31 to submit reduced budget requests, as Acting Education Commissioner Lucille Davy had ordered in March. In their original requests the 31 districts asked for roughly $500 million more than the $4.25 billion Corzine included in his proposed budget, which is subject to review by state lawmakers.

That much of today's ruling was a victory for Corzine's administration. But in a partial victory for the school districts, the justices gave them a right to appeal "inadequate funding" for "demonstrably needed" school programs. Corzine had proposed a strict budget cap that did not allow poor school districts to appeal the state's funding decisions.

The justices also ordered the Department of Education to go ahead with planned audits of four special needs districts -- Newark, Jersey City, Paterson and Camden -- and set a November deadline for their completion. Farber had argued the audits are needed to ensure the poor districts are properly spending billions of dollars in state aid while candidly conceding the state has "neglected its responsibility to provide sufficient fiscal oversight."

David Wald, a spokesman for Farber, said she "believes this is an important decision that will help us to ensure funding is spent wisely and our children receive the education they deserve.''

Prison door to slam again on dealer, 22
Tuesday, May 09, 2006
By MICHAELANGELO CONTE
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

A jury took less than 20 minutes Friday to convict a 22-year-old Jersey City man on a dozen drug charges, officials said yesterday.

Donald Mincey, who at age 22 has already spent more than a year of his young life in prison, could be sentenced to up to 10 years when he's sentenced June 30 for dealing heroin and cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school and 500 feet of public property, Silverstein said.

"Based on his history, Jersey City is definitely a much better place without having him around," Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Aaron Silverstein said yesterday. "I will argue for the maximum sentence."

Mincey, a resident of Van Wagenen Avenue, was caught selling drugs on a street corner near the A. Harry Moore Public Housing Complex on Duncan Avenue near Lincoln Park, Silverstein said.

He was only 19 years old when previously busted for dealing drugs near a school and he spent from Jan. 10, 2003, to April 5, 2004, in prison on that conviction, state corrections officials said.

Tenants in Jersey City housing complex unify, risk their own safety to halt drug trade
Monday, May 08, 2006
By ROSE DUGER
JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

W hen Mahotia Grant comes downstairs at Jersey City's A. Harry Moore housing complex, the drug dealers know they'd better move on. If not, they'll risk a stern lecture from a member of the A. Harry Moore Tenant Task Force, an organized and committed group of tenants who are determined to chase drug dealers from their neighborhood.

"You can't even come out the door without seeing them," said Grant of the brazen pushers and their customers, almost none of whom live in the complex. "I tell them, 'You can't sell your stuff here. You have to move.' Now if they see me coming, they start to move right away."

Long dismayed by the prevalence of drugs in their neighborhood, tenants of the public housing complex last year banded together to stage an aggressive face-off that prevented the felons from doing business for a full day.

Bearing signs that read "Keep Drug Dealers Out," the tenants picketed and denied dealers access to the property. They also armed some residents, including children and seniors, with brooms and garbage bags to do a symbolic clean sweep that signaled a new day dawning for the neighborhood that had long been beleaguered by crime.

The task force has no set schedule but has continued to mobilize.

"When they're out there en masse, the drug dealers are not going to come into the complex," said Capt. William Costigan of the West District - estimating that drug traffic is reduced by 70 or 80 percent on days when the task force assembles volunteers to patrol the complex.

"The women let (drug buyers) know that they're not welcome there," he said.

For their efforts to stop drug dealers in their tracks, the members of the A. Harry Moore Tenant Task Force has been selected as 2006 Jersey Journal Everyday Heroes in the Working for a Safer Neighborhood category.

The idea for the task force was born in the summer, when tenant Joanie Halley became dismayed as she gazed around the complex that so many good people call home. In addition to the drug dealers, homeless people slept in front of doors, steps from where the neighborhood's children were playing.

While Jersey City police regularly patrol the area, the drug trade is so brisk that officers stationed there couldn't keep up. Tenants recall one officer rounding up and handcuffing nine druggies in a single arrest. But as fast as police round them up, more come to take their place, said the frustrated tenants.

Halley had enough and ignited the spark in her fellow tenants to form the task force.

"They had no respect for our children," Halley said of the pushers and users. "A lot of the tenants said, 'That's it' We paid the rent and we lived there, but we had no say-so. We went door to door to get people involved in Operation Clean Sweep."

The effort came to life Aug. 30, when more than 100 tenants confronted strangers who came to the complex to sell or buy drugs. The Jersey City Housing Authority provided T-shirts to participants, games for the children and refreshments for all of the volunteers, while the Jersey City Incinerator Authority donated brooms and garbage bags.

Halley's heart swelled when the more than 100 volunteers started pouring out of the complex at 6:30 a.m., the time designated by organizers for the kickoff. After enjoying a quick breakfast together, they set to work picketing up and down Duncan Avenue and preventing cars and strangers from entering until 3 p.m.

"Five-year-olds were asking for brooms," she said. "This let everyone know what neighborhood means."

Patricia Jackson, the Housing Authority's director of resident support services, called it "a stupendous effort."

"Residents in public housing don't co-sign for this type of living," said Jackson of the drug-infested hallways and courtyards. "Drug violence was trying to take over and these tenants weren't having it."

Strength may come in numbers, but that didn't stop the druggies from trying to intimidate the tenants. Some even threatened the mostly female group and their families.

"It was scary, but we didn't back down," Grant recalled. "We wouldn't let them stop us."

"We were very scared," Halley agreed. "They were threatening our families."

Fearing for the safety of the tenants, the Housing Authority has since requested that the residents not take on the dealers and users alone," said Maria Maio, executive director of the Housing Authority.

"I think they did put themselves at risk, and that's always an issue when dealing with bad people," Maio said. "It's even more commendable that they were willing to take that risk."

A. Harry Moore is undergoing major change, as the fourth of its seven high-rises is shortly due to be demolished, and construction of mixed-income townhouses will begin later this spring, Maio said.

Halley said the group plans to hold activities for the complex's children this summer to build pride in the neighborhood.

"We're going to try to keep this going," she said. "Once they start rebuilding here, we don't want this stuff going on. We're trying to change our community."

I heard about that security meeting...despite there being a rape in one of the Lefrak buildings, they still didnt really focus on security.

Now of course everyone on that board is just focusing on their "pets"...yes, stupid little pet icons that can go on their profile. How ridiculous!

That organization could have a real pull if they could get a large number of the tenants together...they could be rejecting high rent increases, etc. Instead, they have a mouthpiece running the show.

I really like Al from Super Rooter. He can be reached at 1-888-533-5551. In addition to doing n excellent job, he treated me with respect and patience. As a woman, who really wants to know how my house works, this was very important.

He made sure I understood my plumbing system and what he would be doing to it. He also gave me a lot of tips and told me where I could easily do repairs and maintenance myself in order to save money.

I also like Flood Watch, (201) 433-1500.

Both companies were good and came out same day.

Alleged mobster's rackets trial told of loans to ex-restaurateur
Saturday, May 06, 2006
BY GUY STERLING
Star-Ledger Staff

The federal racketeering trial of reputed Genovese crime family associate Michael Crincoli began in Newark yesterday with the former owner of a Greek restaurant claiming Crincoli arranged for him to get thousands of dollars in loans from the mob over the years.

George Vlahos maintained he even got new loans through Crincoli while still paying off old ones. The interest rate on the loans ranged from 1 to 3 percent a week, he testified before U.S. District Judge William Martini, in a trial that is expected to last two to three weeks.

Asked by a prosecutor what could befall him if he failed to make his payments, Vlahos replied: "Anything could happen to me from all the stories I heard. ... I believe I would have to pay by force, or someone would go to my family."

Vlahos, 53, was the first witness to take the stand and the first of three Greek men slated to testify they allegedly got usurious loans from the Mafia through Crincoli, 47, a Jersey City resident who later moved to Las Vegas and is charged in an 11-count indictment.

As part of the case, mob turncoat Peter "Petey Cap" Caporino is scheduled to testify about the loansharking operation of the Genovese family. Thirty of the hundreds of tapes he secretly recorded for the government also will be played, Assistant U.S. Attorney Leslie Faye Schwartz told the jury.

Schwartz and defense lawyer Joseph Ferrante sparred in their opening statements over what Crincoli's relationship to organized crime was and if, in fact, there was anything sinister in the loans he arranged.

The first thing Schwartz said was that Crincoli was Italian-American and an associate of the Mafia, one who ingratiated himself with the Greek community in Jersey City and relied on fear and intimidation to get his loans repaid in a timely manner. But the weekly payments meant little since the only way a loan could be paid back was in a lump sum, she added.

When payments were late, Crincoli resorted to the "Mafia card" by saying the matter was out of his hands and that he'd been ordered to collect the money by higher-ups, often employing mob muscle in the process, Schwartz said.

In addition to presenting the loan victims, the government will prove its case with tapes, surveillance photos, the testimony of Caporino and an FBI expert on the Genovese crime family, the prosecutor added.

Ferrante countered by saying there was no proof he was aware of that Crincoli was a Genovese associate. He did not deny his client arranged the loans for Vlahos, Tommy Triantafillikis and Tommy Diakos but claimed he did so for no other reason than to help out boyhood friends of his.

Those who looked to Crincoli for the loans were mostly degenerate gamblers in search of quick money off the books, the defense attorney added. When loan payments were not made, Crincoli was made responsible for the debts by those supplying the funds because he'd been the one to vouch for those in need, he said.

"You can be involved in illegal loans unwittingly just by making an introduction," Ferrante said, referring to his client's actions. "But if he doesn't pay, you've got to pay. That's the way it was in the realm these men lived in."

Crincoli was one of more than a dozen defendants rounded up in a sweep last year after a three-year investigation of Genovese family activities in North Jersey. He was the only one not to accept a plea deal.

Re: School District Map?
Home away from home
Home away from home


As far as a map, it must be a big secret at BOE headquarters. Basically, you call the BOE, give them your address and they will tell you which school district you are in.

As ALB describes, you can transfer to other schools if there is a space available, however, it is a big mystery on how they fill the extra seats, no criteria, no lottery.

You are likely in the district for Cordero, PS 37 school, which is one of the higher ranked public primary schools. The principal is well known as a strict disciplinarian (which may be necessary).

Most of the charter schools have struggled with the exception of Learning Community Charter School located on Grand and Grove at the Boys and Girls Club not far from Harsimus Cove, admission is by lottery.

Having just gone through this process with our son entering Kindergarten this fall, please feel free to contact me directly (PM) and I would be happy to discuss our experience further.

Another good source for information about your neighborhood is the Harsimus Cove Association which meets the third Wednesday of each month, see www.harsimuscove.org

I've been looking in Brooklyn, since there are some noteworth schools, but want to stay put if possible, because of all the little juicy advantages that we have (take that, hipsters!).

The problem that I've had, though, is figgering out what district an address is zoned for. So far, I've found that I'm zoned for a school that is farther away than two other schools, and I have not been able to find any kind of map to guide me (despite asking the Board of Ed, etc.).

Does anyone have a clue? I've heard that the Cordero school is good, does anyone else have experiences with elementary schools in the neighborhood?

Re: County Taxes going UP 9%!!!!!!!!!
Home away from home
Home away from home


My favorite part of the article was Healy's quote at the end (and yes, that's sarcasm):

"These developers would not come and build here without these abatements, and they have helped make the city successful..."

What bothers me about this statement is that it is out of date. Had this statement been made 10 years ago (and maybe even as little as 5 years ago), it would have been spot on. But things have changed. Today, that statement couldn't be farther from the truth.

We've already passed that moment in time when the city needs to entice development here (at least in downtown and along the waterfront). Developers are now interested because they see dollar signs; not maybe I'll take a risk and it will pay off , but let's get in while the gettin' is good dollar signs.

I do not believe that Donald Trump is a pioneer. He's more of an opportunist, and it's worked well for him. KHov is not taking on their very first condominium tower in their history because they hope and pray that it's going to pay off. Field's Brothers and Metro Homes are picking up site after site because they think that they could possibly be on to something. Lefrak isn't expanding Newport based upon spectulation, they know from 20 odd years of experience exactly what to expect.

So I have to whole heartedly disagree with Mr. Healy. If the city stopped handing out PILOTs to large developers building on prime land in downtown Jersey City, those developers wouldn't suddenly go away. They may threaten to, but in the end I think we would all find that these threats are empty. But of course they are working now.

Here is the conundrum for me. Does Healy really believe what he is saying or is it just the convenient answer to rationalize his change of heart? When he campaigned, he certainly sang a different song. Is he simply making excuses or has he discovered that truly governing is hard and often requires unpopular decisions so succumbing to PILOTs is simply the easiest way out? Either way, it doesn't say much for him as an affective mayor as he's either out of touch or he's simply a poor leader.

Listen, I love the fact that Jersey City is rising. I love the fact that I have gotten in on something that is both exciting and fascinating. What I don't love, however is that the city seems to simply be deferring many of it's responsiblities and rights over to people (and companies) simply because they are willing to build more ratables. As I've said a number of times on this site alone, it's short term thinking that is going to cost everyone in the end. There is a price to be paid for all of this and the tax increases (on all three levels) that we have experienced this year are just the beginning.
