I have everything through NJ Manufacturer's. You have to work for a company that belongs to the NJ Business & Industry Association to qualify though.

The savings were so huge that I wished years ago, I formed an LLC and joined NJBIA just to get the insurance.

Yeah richie is correct, this pupil was redshirted 2x. He is the equivalent of starting kindergarten at 7.

What a disservice to this child by placing him in a situation to be ridiculed by all the other students.

I wonder if the gun was brought in for show and tell or to defend himself.

I went this morning when the place was uncrowded. I normally order groceries online - when Pathmark closed, I only missed the convenience of having a place to buy essentials when in a pinch. I am also not very familiar with Asian groceries.

Having said that, I was totally blown away by the store! What a welcome addition. I never heard of many of the items much less knew they existed, but between the fresh food sections and the produce section, I'm sold. I just hope that the wonderful customer service doesn't fade with time. What a refreshing change from Pathmark.

Being left back once would not make sense to be 15, it would have to be at least 2. The real issue is that kids are having kids that are not being raised by a responsible adult. Cut welfare for people who only have kids. I'll find them a job.

It's been a long time, but I used to order occasionally from UberEATS at work in Manhattan when they first started. It seems to be a different setup now. At the time, the choice was limited to 1 popular place that normally didn't deliver. I was thrilled to order from Katz's Delicatessen among other unique places. The delivery fee was reasonable if several people from my office ordered. Delivery took a while and the food wasn't always hot, but it was still nice to be able to order from such places as Katz's.

Now it seems they're no different than any other delivery service except it's a much worse deal. I don't get why anyone would use them now.

What also strikes me as sad are the statements about the kid's age. If he repeated one school year, 15 would make since to be in middle school. The gun being in school is dangerous and frightening. Focus on the real issues.

Very happy with Progressive bundles - I ended up saving a lot over my old local insurance agent that I had for years and years. Their interface is easy, you can get all of your docs online and I've found their customer service to be terrific. Good luck!

As mentioned earlier in the thread, perhaps the "small fish store on Jersey" should adjust their prices to remain competitive. As it is, that place is ridiculously expensive. It's hard to feel much sympathy for businesses that seem to try and operate in an alternate reality where market forces don't exist: know your market, know your customers, and act accordingly.

I don't feel bad for them. Different customer bases. Something tells me most of the customers of the "small fish store on Jersey" woudn't be caught dead buying their fish in a supermarket, let alone an Asian one. I can't picture them standing in line sandwiched between loud Chinese grandmothers buying huge bags of fish heads - or even knowing what to do with a bag of fish heads.

The bakery looks fairly decent in terms of selection: the typical breads, pastries and cakes that you would find in any Asian bakery. I did pick up a mocha swiss roll (the swiss rolls were one of their grand opening specials) and it was good. The line at the bakery was too long over the weekend, or I would have gotten a little mango mousse pastry from the case. I am curious to see how it stacks up to Fay Da in Chinatown. To me, Fay Da is the gold standard of Chinese bakeries.

The place is clean, well stocked, and a great addition.




It might have been $3/lb, but was still very cheap. It was frozen and wrapped in one of the coolers, not on the fish counter itself.

The chicken hearts I'm sure of because I bought like a pound and a half, roasted them up, and sat on the couch with a bowl of them like popcorn sharing them with my dog.

Many school districts put immigrant students behind in grades in order to learn the language. Several months ago, something similar happen when a 18 and 19 year old immigrants raped a 14 year old classmate. The officials said it is their practice to place older students with younger classmates who are immigrants.

$200,000 collected plus $30,000 of his own money in 2008. No one ever heard of his wife but wacko Neo-Con websites looked up every snippet of info on her including what videos she "liked" on Youtube. Stop being a hysterical Grandma.

A gun was found at School 4 in Downtown Jersey City Tuesday afternoon and a 15-year-old boy was arrested, Jersey City police said.

Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said the gun was not loaded when it was recovered at 2:20 p.m. at the Middle School 4 on Bright Street.

The boy, of Bright Street, was charged with unlawful possession of a handgun in an institution. Details on the incident, which remains under investigation, were not immediately available.

Maryann Dickar, spokeswoman for the school district, could not be reached for comment this morning. A woman who answered the phone at the school yesterday repeatedly hung up when asked about the incident.

This place will do well due its strategic location- close to downtown JC and easily reachable within walking distance No more driving to ny china town.Savings inNY tolls and parking makes this a game changer for me. Prefer to go when its not crowded, before 9.00pm. it is really a welcome change for us who love to cook asian food.

President Trump loses again as federal judge blocks his executive order cutting sanctuary city funds


NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 9:00 PM

A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from so-called sanctuary cities — the latest in a series of blows to the President’s hardline immigration agenda.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick on Tuesday issued the preliminary injunction in two lawsuits against an executive order targeting communities that protect immigrants from deportation.
