PGA tournament coming to Jersey City in '09

By Matthew Futterman
The Star-Ledger
May 16, 2007

The PGA confirmed today that the Barclays tournament will come to Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City in 2009.

"It is going to be part of the rotation," Laura Neal, a PGA tour spokeswoman, said.

Peter Truell, a spokesman for Barclays, also confirmed the move but declined to discuss specifics.

Getting the tournament is a coup for Liberty National, the $120 million course built by former Reebok owner Paul Fireman in the shadows of the Statue of Liberty.

The private club, with a course designed by Tom Kite, opened last year with an initiation fee of $400,000 and an exclusive membership roster that includes presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. The club is beginning construction of a modern, glass and steel clubhouse this year.

The Barclays, which has also been known as the Buick Classic and the Westchester Classic, has been played at the Westchester (N.Y.) Country Club for decades.

Neal said it will move to Liberty National in 2009 and might rotate among several different clubs in the New York-New Jersey area in the coming years.

"That is something that is under discussion," said Neal, who declined to name other potential sites for the event.

Apr 14th, 2007

The two-tower development planned for Jersey City’s Journal Square now has two partners sharing the risk, burden - and potential rewards - of building the $400 million project.

The board of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency voted yesterday to amend the redeveloper’s agreement with Jersey City-based Harwood Properties to include Washington-based Multi-Employer Property Trust, a national real estate equity fund that invests union pension funds.

“I am confident that with MEPT’s support, Journal Square will soon become a thriving neighborhood and a destination,” said Lowell Harwood, managing partner of Harwood Properties.

“Redevelopment of Journal Square has been talked about for 30 or 40 years. Now it’s finally going to happen.”



The project is slated to be built on the site of the old Hotel on the Square and several stores, next to the PATH Transportation Center, and is to consist of two towers, 52 and 46 stories, containing 1,034 apartments, 150,000 square feet of retail space and three levels of parking.

I'm sure you've noticed the old guy's revenge of leaving 15 car links ahead of them during rush hour. It seems like a new fad. They did it in Seattle too. Do they have angry old bastard discussion forums where they laugh about it?

You know, I was thinking about it this week and I think you unwittingly came up with the answer. People are so aware that some maniac may plow into them at any time that they are paying attention all the time. I guessed that there were probably less fatal accidents here for that very reason. Lots of fender benders, but not as many t-bones and roll-overs.

You can't help but think a few moves ahead when you drive here. I love it. It's like a video game. It makes for an entertaining commute. "Oh, f*ck me? No, f*ck you!"

In the meantime, please remember that aside from being the only cure for global warming, trees offer us some direct economic benefits:


Apart from absorbing CO2, trees also emit the much more influential greenhouse gas, methane. De-forestation between 1990 and 2000 may actually be responsible for the observed slowing of methane flows to the atmosphere.


"We now have the spectre that new forests might increase greenhouse warming through methane emissions rather than decrease it by being sinks for CO2," - New Zealand atmospheric scientist Dr. David Lowe

Scientists question trees' role in global warming


Those stupid stupid trees.

I love it. Humans cause 2/3 of the methane in the atmosphere, but since trees cause 1/3, cutting more of them down would be the best policy at this point. Makes sense to me. Balance of nature, shmalance of nature.

"But the concentration of methane in the atmosphere has almost tripled in the last 150 years, mainly through human-influenced so-called biogenic sources such as the rise in rice cultivation or numbers of flatulent ruminating animals. According to previous estimates, these sources make up two-thirds of the 600m tonnes worldwide annual methane production."

Global warming: blame the trees

He's got my vote. He's conscientious, he's a hard worker and he gets things done. I think he'd make a great Mayor.

Wikipedia will probably leave that one up.

Anyway, I read the article and liked what I saw. He seems like the kind of politician we need. (Unlike that crazy man in the White House.)
