Heights, I don't live in the Heights anymore but I drive through almost daily. I have noticed an alarming lack of driver awareness lately when school buses are stopped with lights on/stop signs shown. The other day on Summit, two cars just sped by a school bus letting off children for the day. I've also seen this happen on Palisade Avenue just past the Supremo Market. If you (or someone else here who attends the meeting) could mention this at the next meeting, I'm sure many families in the area would appreciate it. It would be an excellent revenue producer, too - they should fine the hell out of these idiots.

Gov. Murphy to End PARCC Testing

By Brent Johnson bjohnson@njadvancemedia.com,

As Phil Murphy succeeds Chris Christie as New Jersey's governor Tuesday, there's at least one thing students and teachers in the state's public schools can expect: an end to controversial PARCC testing.

But when and how that will happen remains unclear.

Murphy on Monday reiterated his campaign promise to eliminate the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career tests, which are computerized exams designed to be more challenging than previous standardize tests.

I know that "traditional" smokers are not a protected class, and landlords can write and enforce no-smoking provisions in their leases. Are people who are allowed "medical marijuana" a protected class? Can a landlord prohibit them from renting a home?

Interested in knowing the legal issues here - particularly those related to other tenants' health, second-hand smoke, and residual smoke impact on the living space.

Re: pre-paying 2018 taxes

New Jerseyans who rushed to pay their 2018 property taxes before Dec. 31 won't be able to deduct the expense from their 2017 state income taxes, the New Jersey Society of CPAs advised Thursday.

While the IRS issued instructions last month that some 2018 prepayments are deductible from federal income taxes in 2017 if you've already received a bill, the same is not true for state income taxes, NJCPA said, citing New Jersey's Division of Taxation.

"Homeowners may be in for shock when they discover that their end-of-year planning to increase their 2017 federal property tax deduction will have no impact on their 2017 New Jersey income tax return," said Ralph Albert Thomas, executive director of NJCPA.

With the marijuana legalization debate set to heat up this year in New Jersey, leaders in two of the state's highest-profile towns say they have no problem with weed businesses in their cities.

Should state lawmakers legalize pot, count Jersey City and Asbury Park among those likely to be a part of what could eventually be a billion-dollar industry.

A bill to legalize recreational marijuana lets municipalities to decide if they want to allow pot sales and production, or miss out on millions in tax revenue.

On Wednesday, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted that he and city officials would be working with the public to "clean up" zoning laws to clarify where dispensaries and grow facilities would be allowed to operate.

I couldn't post on the NJ.com website so I'm posting about this here:

A few comments in response to those people on NJ.com who regard the residents of this complex as freeloaders who pay little or nothing to live at Booker T Washington, and should supposedly work harder to change their situation and live somewhere better where the heat works -


First of all, many of these so-called freeloaders have children living there who have zero control over their economic status. Should the children living there suffer and freeze too?


Second of all, I'm sure many people who live there would live to live elsewhere with better living conditions. But even if you have a job, moving costs money and coming up with a security deposit and first month's rent at a new apartment is not that easy for some people, while they still have their belongings at their old apartment.


Third, regardless of what these residents pay or don't pay to live in the complex and what you think about that, if the heat goes out in the building long enough, the pipes will eventually freeze and burst. This will cost the city even more money to rectify. Is this what you want as a taxpayer?


The way this situation is being handled is just shortsighted at best, and in my opinion, inhumane and unacceptable. I have no problem with my tax dollars going for this (generally), but if the city can't even maintain an emergency phone line properly, there are some serious issues here that need to be handled, YESTERDAY, or else we will all pay even more, both monetarily and potentially in human lives.


Bravo, Caj. I was astounded by the tenor of the comments in the NJ.com article. The majority were chiding the residents and telling them to "get a job" or "suck it up." There are elderly, young children, single parent families, veterans, disabled, and victims of domestic abuse living at Booker T. To deny them the basic human comfort of heat in the freezing cold is a crime. And when it happens in a city like Jersey City, with all of its touted and marketed benefits of being so hip and in touch and protective of its residents, it really speaks to what the city's priorities are.

I hope this situation is rectified immediately - our taxes are paying for this ineptness - year after year.

Booker T. Washington - No Heat Plagues Tenants - RIDICULOUS!
Home away from home
Home away from home


(Gotta say - for people to be suffering in cold like this with no tangible repairs and no one at the other end of a hotline designed to help them is pretty damn ridiculous. Not to mention the danger of using a stove to heat a residential unit.)

By Corey W. McDonald cmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY -- With temperatures expected to stay largely below 20 degrees again today, some residents in the Booker T. Washington Housing complex are preparing for another frigid night.

A number of tenants in the city-run complex, who wish to remain anonymous, told The Jersey Journal heat often goes out in their apartments for hours.

Sometimes they spend the night without heat.

"I have to keep the oven on," said a 78-year-old woman who lives with her daughter and young granddaughter. "Sometimes it's like ice in here. It's pathetic."

One man walking outside bundled in a heavy winter coat said sometimes he is forced to wear his winter clothes indoors.

"I walk around the house like this!" he said.

The complex, between Fremont and Colden streets adjacent to Gateway Field and County Prep High School, is one of a number of housing complexes in the city operated by the Jersey City Housing Authority, an autonomous city agency.

Many of the residents interviewed have been living in the complex for years and have said this is an ongoing problem.

Re: Just say 'no' to 'millionaires' marina on the south side of Liberty State Park
Home away from home
Home away from home


(Email from Friends of Liberty State Park)

With JC's lawsuit hearing & Christie's exiting on 1/16 and Gov-elect Phil Murphy public stating he opposes the marina privatization plan, it looks like a pending victory for The People against LSP's southside destructive marina plan!

Under the photo below is info on Mon., 1/8 being first day that LSP is accepting 2018 applications for picnic pavilions and re-servable open air tables.

It's premature to celebrate the saving of LSP again but park supporters raised their Voices again to protect LSP and the big news this past week is that Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, who had initiated the hiring of a top law firm, announced on Jan 2 that a lawsuit was filed and that afternoon, a judge issued a Temporary Restraining Order preventing Governor Christie's administration from signing a lease with Suntex Marinas! The Jersey Journal story about the Mayor's news conference with guest speakers Friends' president Sam Pesin, our great 25 year ally Greg Remaud, deputy director of the NY/NJ Baykeeper, Captain Bill Sheehan, the Hackensack Riverkeeper, and Jeff Tittel, head of the NJ Sierra Club.

The judge set a court hearing for 1/16 at 11am on the validity of the "DEP's lease term sheet" which Suntex signed, with them both ignoring the current strong opposition and the 41 year broad public consensus against privatizing our treasured park. The hearing will still be happening at Noon when Phil Murphy becomes Governor and he told the media this week that he opposes the marina and supports LSP's preservation for future generations!

The marina's 300 yacht plan would confiscate sacred public land (3 jetties & 4 acre lawn), obstruct priceless harbor views and take one of the two free parking lots (228 spaces) and both are full on summer Sundays and many Saturdays, and had mega-yachts docked by the Overlook Lawn right behind Lady Liberty.

We'll send out a thank you letter to all when the marina is officially rejected! For now, we thank all of you and Mayor Steve Fulop, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, Assemblywoman Angela McKnight, Senator Sandra Cunningham and Senator Loretta Weinberg.

Introducing SnoHub - The Uber of Snow Shoveling
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Jessica Remo | NJ Advance Media

It's not the shoveling I mind, it's the single-digit-temps and jacket-piercing wind.

So in the wake of yesterday's snow bomb, it seemed the perfect time to review SnoHub, the latest merger of tech and laziness — I mean, convenience — to rid my corner property (twice the sidewalks!) of the fluffy white stuff.

The idea is simple: Like Uber, the app employs contractors to accept a job, all with the push of a few buttons, and presto!, there's a much-more-eager-than-you snow remover at your door in minutes.

SnoHub hit the market in Connecticut last winter and this year expanded to Jersey, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Albany, Providence and Rochester, with plans to go nationwide.

Fast Facts - More Reasons for Volunteering!

Each year, shoveling snow sends more than 11,000 people to the hospital. While most have orthopedic injuries, 7 percent have cardiac problems, and many of these are heart attacks.

Doctors advise against shoveling if you are older, have heart disease or think you might. “Shoveling snow is hard work,” says Cleveland Clinic cardiovascular surgeon A. Marc Gillinov, MD, co-author of the hit book Heart 411. “People who have coronary artery disease should not perform strenuous shoveling of snow. It can trigger a heart attack.”

The cold temperatures also increase the risk for heart attack because the arteries constrict and this increases blood pressure.

(Still a lot of unknowns - there should be a little more certainty later on today)

Resized Image


By Jeff Goldman | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

A storm that could dump up to 7 inches of snow in parts of New Jersey and pack wind gusts of up to 45 mph starting Wednesday night into Thursday morning's commute continues to track up the east coast.

Forecasters are increasingly confident the chances of the storm moving far enough off the coast and missing New Jersey completely have diminished.

South Jersey and areas along the Shore are expected to get hit the hardest with 4 to 7 inches, while northwestern parts of the state may dodge the snow almost entirely. The interior portion of the state should receive about 3 inches but a westward shift of the system could push those amounts higher.

He was brought to Jersey City Medical Center where he was pronounced dead just after 7 p.m., she said. The shooting occurred in the alleyway of a residential complex near Ferris High School.

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

The IRS has dashed the hopes of New Jersey homeowners who have prepaid their 2018 property taxes in an effort to get around a provision in the new federal tax overhaul.

In a statement it released Wednesday, the IRS says prepayment of property taxes not assessed prior to 2018 are not deductible when filers submit their tax returns next year. The federal agency had previously said it was still reviewing language in the law to determine if it would permit deduction of prepaid local taxes.

Re: Federal Agents at 162 Oakland in the Heights
Home away from home
Home away from home


FBI agents and local police searched a home in Jersey City Wednesday in an investigation into numerous threatening letters, including one claiming there might be an attack on Rockefeller Plaza, law enforcement sources said.

Other threatening notes were also sent to several NJ locations, officials said.

Investigators said no arrest was made, but they believe they know who wrote the letters. Agents and police seized computers and other materials from the home along Oakland Avenue during a search that lasted several hours.

Investigators said there was no active threat or plot. The investigation into the writings is not believed to be linked to any terror- or ISIS-inspired postings.

Rather, the person who wrote the letters may be angry or emotionally disturbed, two sources familiar with the case said.

An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment except to confirm agents were on "official business" at the Oakland Avenue home.

A spokesman for the US attorney referred calls to the FBI.

Re: pre-paying 2018 taxes

By Peter Jamison, Jeff Stein and Patricia Sullivan December 27 at 9:16 PM - Washington Post

People across the United States rushed this week to pay their 2018 property taxes early, hoping to take advantage one last time of a federal deduction that will be scaled back under the tax-code overhaul signed by President Trump.

On Wednesday, however, the ­Internal Revenue Service announced that those prepayments could be deducted only in limited circumstances, a decision that appeared to invalidate many taxpayers’ efforts and raised the prospect that local governments could come under pressure to refund millions of dollars.

Bearings are steel pieces that connect the bridge deck to the pier. They are designed to allow for controlled movement of the bridge deck, such as expansion or contraction due to temperature changes."
