I refer to the website factcheck.org whenever I'm in doubt

It's lengthy so I won't cut and paste it here. But the following link will answer your question

http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/sliming_obama.html

It's a great reference.

Most of the retail that you see on Broadway are chain stores ex. Family Dollar, Payless, Blockbuster, Dots So I don't think that adding more chain stores on Route 440 would really have much of an impact.

I can picture Bayonne's Downtown being something closer to Woodbridge proper or Metuchen.

Have you ever been to downtown Bayonne? Pretty much once Newport Mall opened up most of the mom and pop shops on Broadway closed down. And in Southern JC there really aren't very many places to shop and certainly not many big box stores so I don't think that this will have a major impact on that area.

I think so NPR but it may be another strip mall like the one where the Stop and Shop is.

I know you posted about this elsewhere and I was just able to locate the article that talked about their plans for adding retail to the old naval base site. If you read the 3rd paragraph it touches on this.

I found this on the state website:

"CPHC New Jersey?s Centers for Primary Health Care (CPHC) offer a wide range of health care services for the entire family.

You don?t need health insurance to get care at a center. Centers serve the uninsured and underinsured, as well as patients with Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance.

If you?re uninsured, your bill will be based on your ability to pay. No one is ever turned away for lack of funds. "

The following link has a list of locations. Hudson Cty is on page 6

I don't have kids, but it doesn't seem like anyone is trying to avoid having to cook for their kids from home. I think it's more a matter of wanting to have the option of being able to engage in social activities with people in your peer group.

If you contact your community relations officer at your district police station I believe that there's a form that you can fill out that lets you call anonymously. you give them a number that you're assigned.

I don't honestly care whether someone is running numbers out of a bodega, but maybe the JCPD did this partly to show that they're not bought off and partly to get some leverage over people who can explain how the open air drug supermarket there works.


Maybe I've been watching too much of The Wire, but it could be that they're having a hard time building a narcotics case there so this bust was an easy way to get some key players taken out of the operation.

Plus, while the number running but not seem like a big deal, I'd imagine that it attracts people that are involved in other types of crimes or otherwise disrupt quality of life.

I know that there is a specific number for Curfew offenders which I can't seem to locate at the moment.

I'd think that if you call the police non-emergency number at 201-547-5477 they should be able to route your call appropriately.

I will have to say I was there last night and the guy sitting next to me ordered the chicken dish and it smelled really good.

I only had appetizers up until now and wasn't crazy about them. But I definitely want to go back and check out some entrees after getting a sniff of his dish!

Thanks for showing their menacing requests for demos from rock groups and their promotion of their watch line.

How are we going to walk the streets with this angry mob of budding music entrepreneurs on the streets. If you look on this kids .MySpace Page he even says:

"I hung out with the drug dealers, and real dudes everyone in the hood does, and I was a loose cannon myself, but I understood the fate the real dudes suffered and I didn?t want that outcome out of life."

Way to paint people with a broad brush..

It's not being cynical. They basically regurgitated news that was 2 weeks old to pass it off as a new development.

http://jclist.com/modules/newbb/viewt ... p?topic_id=10505&start=25

There isn't a finite number of wolfpacks. It's a term to describe any attack by a group. So even if they get this one group off the street, its a fact that there will be numerous others left to fill the void.

Oh Jangie. That is just too cute.

There's not just 1 wolfpack running around causing all of this crime. And many of the descriptions involved more than 4 kids...

So basically this is for show

I think that we can all agree that crime travels. I've seen and heard so many different descriptions of the neighborhood boundaries since I moved here and they continually seem to be changing.

Slight O/T but why isn't Country Village considered its own section/neighborhood of JC on the maps?

You misunderstood my post. Let me clarify. Realtors are calling the area that is mentioned in the article Bergen-Lafayette even though its outside the boundaries to make it seem like its part of the developing area.

I'm not saying Bergen-Lafayette doesn't exist as a neighborhood.

That\'s not entirely true either. Your definition would include the West Side as part of Greenville.

I think the issue is that realtors call the area in the article Bergen Lafayette to leverage the development thats occurring in the area that you identified.

That is a bit ridiculous, is anyone reading them? Could we get copy of these through freedom of information? I'd be interested in seeing what they said.

What happened to good ol' community service? I had to do it when I got busted as a kid, it sucked, but I did it and learned my lesson.


The judge read them. I don't think that she was correcting for grammar, but she basically wanted to see if they met the 500 word requirement and addressed the question which I think was "What have I learned from this process?" or something like that.

That's a good question. I wonder if maybe different judges serve that up as a punishment.

It was really funny actually. I was only there about an hour and a half. They basically cut the ticket cost in half just for you showing up. But like I said you could get yours totally thrown out.

And I got to see some of JCs finest youths who were there for curfew violations or to turn their reports in to the judge.

Even better were people that were there for moving violations.

Just go to court and fight it. I was issued a ticket for putting my trash out too early and there was a woman there who was issued a ticket for the wrong property and they threw it out.

It's really not a big deal.

I agree that you can't help those who don't want it.

I don't have children and haven't lived here as long as some. Do you know if there's any info online about the Boys Club and rec department programs.

It seems that taking a more active role in keeping kids ages 12+ from getting involved with street/gang activities would be a tremendous opportunity for the community.

I wish that more people would get involved in this thread so that we could brainstorm productive ways of possibly implementing some changes rather than just complaining.

Plus, I'd love to hear some things that people are doing personally or through corporate programs in the area.
