Overnight forecast models coalesced around an East Coast landfall late this weekend for now Hurricane Joaquin. While much uncertainty remains about the exact track and intensity of the storm, the forecast is significantly more dire for New Jersey than it was 24 hours ago.

Joaquin could impact N.J., pose biggest threat since Sandy

Tropical Storm Joaquin formed east of the Bahamas Monday night and could impact New Jersey this weekend, posing the most acute threat from a tropical system since Hurricane Sandy.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Joaquin is expected to meander in the Atlantic Ocean for a few days before turning north. If it maintains its forecast track, Joaquin would be in the vicinity of New Jersey on Sunday.

A landfall somewhere on the East Coast, including New Jersey, is not out of the question, according to the National Hurricane Center.

There was a party in the big apartment building on 8th between Jersey and Coles last night. It looked and sounded like lots of fun! It started after the BBQ winded down.

It doesn't happen frequently on this block - loud parties. Most noise comes from festivals in the park. And the last band that played at the BBQ last night was way too loud.

The contractor failed to disclose that they were not a licensed plumber.

At this point get in writing a warranty for the work - a year for example, and then move on.

Re: Jersey City Baby Has Suspected Case of Measles: Health Officials

On NJ.com:

N.J.'s first suspected case of measles this year being investigated

on February 05, 2015 at 5:40 PM, updated February 05, 2015 at 8:38 PM

The CDC recommends that infants as young as six months get vaccinated against measles if they will be traveling abroad.

Tim Darragh | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com By Tim Darragh | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

The state Department of Health, along with Jersey City, is investigating a suspected case of measles in a baby, a state official said Thursday.
If confirmed, it would be the first case of measles in New Jersey this year, and would add to the growing number of cases of the highly contagious disease across the country.
RELATED: N.J. doctors weigh in on measles outbreak, vaccine issue
According to state Health Department spokeswoman Donna Leusner, the suspected measles case involves a 1-year-old baby who not been vaccinated. Health authorities do not recommend vaccinating children under 1 year old, usually recommending that parents wait until the child is between 12 and 15 months old.
The baby has recovered, Leusner said.
However, the potential for individuals to have been exposed to the virus remains. According to Leusner, the latest time a person could become ill due to exposure in this case will be Feb. 7.
RELATED: Pallone calls for House hearing on measles vaccination following Christie remarks
In addition, residents of the building where the baby lives were notified of a potential measles exposure "out of an abundance of caution." The statement did not identify the baby's family's address.
Leusner did not say if the suspected case is related to the nationwide outbreak, in which 102 cases of measles in 14 states were confirmed since Jan. 1, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Last year, the state had three confirmed cases, she said.
Measles is an easily transmitted disease that is first marked by runny nose, fever, cough and achiness followed by a spotty, itchy rash.
According to CDC, 90 percent of people who haven't been vaccinated for measles will get it if they are near an infected person.
Measles spreads when people breathe in or have contact with virus-infected fluid, such as the droplets sprayed into the air when someone with measles sneezes or coughs, according to Nemours Foundation. A person who is exposed to the virus might not show symptoms until 8-10 days later.
People with measles are contagious and can spread the disease from five days before the rash appears until about four days after that, and are most contagious while they have a fever, runny nose, and cough, the foundation says.

Jersey City Baby Has Suspected Case of Measles: Health Officials

Home away from home


Updated 2 hours ago

The Jersey City Department of Health and the state Department of Health are investigating a suspected case of measles in a 1-year-old baby who has not yet been vaccinated.

The baby has recovered, but out of an abundance of caution, residents in the building where the baby lives have been notified of the potential exposure.

The latest time a person could become ill due to exposure in this case would be Feb. 7.

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus and is spread by contact with nasal or throat secretions of infected people. Measles can lead to serious side effects and, in rare cases, death. Measles symptoms usually appear in 10 to 12 days, but can occur as late as 18 days after exposure. Symptoms generally appear in two stages.

Guess who bought tickets to the inaugural gala at Ellis Island.

* Automotive dealerships and their association, the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers, which gave a total $5,500;

By Susan K. Livio/The Star-Ledger

on March 14, 2014 at 7:00 PM, updated March 14, 2014 at 7:01 PM

TRENTON — From advisers and employees to lobbyists and friends, Gov. Chris Christie's supporters raised $660,000 for the inaugural gala at Ellis Island that got snowed out, according to a report filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement commission that was released today.

Save Ellis Island, New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, and NJ Heroes, the nonprofit chaired by First Lady Mary Pat Christie that recognizes community contributions by nonprofits and volunteers, each received a $75,000 contribution with money left over after paying the bills, according to the report.

"We were thrilled with the response to the Inaugural," Bill Palatucci said, the governor's adviser and longtime friend. "Sure, I was looking forward to a special evening on Ellis Island, but it's important to remember that three special charities were aided as a result of the effort."

Palatucci credited Nicole Davidman Drewniak for her "usual sensational job" fund-raising, but she also was in charge of planning the event and coordinating with the National Park Service and the vendors at Ellis Island. Drewniak, the wife of Christie's press secretary Michael Drewniak, was paid $50,000, according to the report.

There were 1,400 donations to the inaugural bash, Palatucci said. Contributors included:

* Automotive dealerships and their association, the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers, which gave a total $5,500;
* Failed state Supreme Court nominee Bruce Harris, now a Turnpike Authority employee, gave $200;
* Debra Yang, a partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, the firm hired to conduct an independent review of the governor's office in the wake of the George Washington Bridge scandal, gave $500;
* Port Authority Commissioner William "Pat" Schuber gave $500;
* Prime Healthcare Services of Ontario, Ca., which has announced plans to buy three hospitals in the state, contributed $500.

Tickets sold for $500 for the Jan. 21 gala.

There is a balance of $53,401 in the account, according to the report. After all the remaining bills are paid, leftover money will be donated, Palatucci said.

5PM January 30, 2013

PSE&G is closely monitoring the track of the approaching storm and making emergency preparations should it bring high winds and heavy rain to our service territory. At this time, the storm is expected to begin impacting New Jersey late Wednesday and continue through early Thursday morning.

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep customers informed during severe weather events, we are providing the following information in anticipation of the storm:
PSE&G is scheduling additional personnel overnight to be ready to respond to outages as soon as the strong winds subside and it is safe to work in bucket trucks and other equipment. We work closely with towns and counties to clear roads so that we can respond to outages in a timely manner.
High winds might cause trees to brush up against power lines, and lightning could strike and damage trees or pole-top equipment. Outages may be caused by falling trees and limbs, which bring down power lines. Downed wires should always be considered “live.” STAY AWAY FROM ALL DOWNED LINES. Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that it might be in contact with.
To report downed wires or power outages, customers should call PSE&G's Customer Service line at 1-800-436-PSEG. PSE&G uses an automated system to handle customer calls as efficiently as possible. Customers who get an automated response when calling PSE&G are encouraged to use it, as it is designed to route their calls to the right destination quickly. The system also provides the option to speak directly to a customer service representative. If you have specific information regarding damage to wires, transformers or poles, we ask that you speak with a representative to provide that information.
Customers with a handheld device, or who are at an alternate location with power, can also report power outages and view the status of their outage by logging in to My Account at pseg.com. General outage activity information, as well as safety tips, can be found at pseg.com/outageinfo.

If you had problems voting - which includes being denied a provisional ballot, file a complaint ASAP with the State of NJ in Trenton.

Send a fax with a description of the incident to:

Robert Giles

Fax # 609-777-1280

Include as much detail as possible including:
-e-mail address -
-phone number

Teen stabbed during carnival in Jersey City Heights park, police say
Published: Friday, April 13, 2012, 10:20 AM Updated: Friday, April 13, 2012, 10:21 AM

By Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal

A Jersey City teenager was stabbed during a fight on the basketball courts in Pershing Field park during a carnival last night, police say.

A Jersey City teen was stabbed at the Pershing Field carnival last night after he was challenged to a fight and began getting the upper hand on his attacker, officials said.

Officers responding to Christ Hospital after the 10 p.m. stabbing met the 17-year-old Belmont Avenue boy who had a bloody bandage around his forearm, reports said, adding that his uncle was with him.

The boy said he was meeting his uncle and cousins at the fair when he heard that a group from Duncan Avenue might be on its way, reports said. He was on the basketball courts when he was approached by a male who said, "Do you have a problem with me?" reports said.

The victim said there was no problem but his attacker began punching him and the pair started to fight, reports said.

"When the actor was starting to lose, the actor pulled out a black folding pocket knife with a silver blade and slashed the victim on the left forearm," reports said.

The wounded 17-year-old found his uncle, who took him to the hospital, reports said, adding that the uncle had to leave so police stayed with the victim until his parents could arrange for child care and respond to the hospital.

Anyone with information on the stabbing is asked to call the Jersey City police tip line at (201) 547-JAIL.

Indictments Dropped Against FW Man; Fed. Case Remains
By PAUL J. PEYTON
Specially Written for The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Times
FANWOOD – A five-count indictment
by a Middlesex County grand
jury against a Fanwood lobbyist, developer,
businessman and Marine
Corps intelligence specialist was dismissed
Monday after the 22-year-old
pleaded guilty to a trespassing charge
following a plea agreement reached
with the Middlesex County
Prosecutor’s Office.

Raj Mukherji had initially been
indicted on two counts of stalking
and one count each of witness tampering,
burglary and contempt. Assistant
Prosecutor Manuel Sameiro
told The Scotch Plains-Fanwood
Times that the burglary charge was
reduced to trespassing and “all the
other charges were dismissed.”

“I think it is a fair resolution in light
of the victims’ desires. They approved
the plea,” Mr. Sameiro said.
The assistant prosecutor pointed
out that as part of the agreement, Mr.
Mukherji is banned from having any
contact with the two women he allegedly
stalked – a Rutgers University
student and a woman he had
attended high school with in Union
County.

Re: Got booted for being 3 minutes extra!

This issue is an ongoing problem...

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Today, Jersey City Councilman Steven Fulop announced that he will have a resolution on the upcoming city council agenda requesting that the Jersey City Parking Authority reimburse all city residents that were illegally booted during the last four years. The formal request is a follow up to the successful first reading ordinance at the last City Council meeting that addresses many changes at the parking authority.

"Illegally booting residents on the first offense is not only an excessive hardship placed on individuals but it is back door tax on residents and their visitors. No other city in the country will confiscate an individual's car on the first offense as Jersey City is doing," said Fulop.

"Past Directors of the Parking Authority have acknowledged that they know confiscating a person's car after the first offense is not consistent with city laws. If city leadership can't follow its own laws how can we ask others to do the same? The right thing to do at this point is to return the money that was illegally taken," said Fulop.

At the last City Council Caucus it was explained that the city issues between 100-200 restrictive devices on cars per week. Both the second reading ordinance regarding the Parking Authority and resolution for reimbursement will be on the June 17th City Council .

In a post Friday, NJ Voices Thurman Hart delves into the statistic Journal staff writer Amy Sara Clark highlighted on Hudson County Now and in the paper last week: Three out of four deputy mayors Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy has appointed has wound up in handcuffs.

Indicted for extortion last week, Leona Beldini, is the just the latest example of a Jersey City deputy mayor getting into trouble.

Ador L. Equipado resigned in disgrace in 2007 after pleading guilty to charges that he demanded about $130 from couples for the then-free service of marrying them at City Hall while also trying to sell the newlyweds phone service plans.

Then last summer, Deputy Mayor Kabili Tayari was arrested for not paying his rental car bill and charged with theft by Essex County. .

The charge was later downgraded to a disorderly persons offense and on January 16 the charges were dismissed altogether at the request of the Essex County prosecutor.

The only deputy mayor Healy has appointed who hasn't been arrested is Rosemary McFadden. Unlike Beldini and Equipado who earned $66,000 a year, and Tayari who earns $104,000, McFadden, the former head of the New York Mercantile Exchange, works for $1 a year.

Three members of Jersey City City Council snub forum
#24
Home away from home
Home away from home


Published: Thursday, November 03, 2011, 3:02 AM

By TERRENCE T. McDONALD
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

The no-shows were the talk of last night’s forum for candidates in next week’s Jersey City special election for at-large council seats.

The at-large incumbents Kalimah Ahmad and Ray Velazquez were both absent, as was Ward F Councilwoman Viola Richardson, who is trying to grab one of the two at-large chairs on the nine-member council.

“I find it disgraceful that the two supposedly leading candidates aren’t here tonight,” said candidate Richard Boggiano, a retired police officer, to applause from the crowd at Ferris High School.

After attending one of the first of several candidate forums held this campaign season, Ahmad and Velazquez have skipped the rest. Candidate Sue Mack, a Board of Education member, said she thinks the candidates’ repeated absences are telling.

“I believe that we can now say this is a strategy for the incumbents not to attend public meetings,” Mack said. “They believe it’s a done deal.”

The two-hour forum attracted about 80 members of the public.

The winners in Tuesday’s contest will replace former council members Mariano Vega, who resigned in September 2010 after pleading guilty to corruption charges, and Willie Flood, who stepped down in February 2011, citing health concerns. Twelve of the 17 candidates in the election attended last night’s event.

The candidates didn’t stray too far from their campaign playbooks last night. Gov. Chris Christie was the target of a number of attacks, as was Mayor Jerramiah Healy.

“The biggest area where the mayor is failing is attitude and direction,” said candidate Ihor Ed Ciolko, a retired city inspector. “We’re spending entirely too much time worrying about license plates on cars.”

Questions from the audience focused mostly on hyper-local issues, such as tax abatements, which candidates said they oppose with some exceptions.

The four candidates who were asked said they haven’t accepted campaign cash from Spectra Energy, the Houston energy giant hoping to build a natural gas pipeline through parts of Jersey City.

This scam was portrayed in an episode of the Sopranos :

Chris and Little Carmine head out to Hollywood to pursue Chris' dream of making a movie about his life. They manage to get an interview with Ben Kingsley, but the star isn't impressed with their idea. While in town, Chris falls off the wagon and starts drinking and doing drugs again, and also mugs Lauren Bacall before returning to New Jersey. Back home, the families are celebrating as the books open again to induct two new members, Gerry Torciano and Burt Gervasi. Amidst the festivities, however, Artie gets into a confrontation with Benny, one of Chris' crew-members, first over his affections for Artie's new waitress Martina, then later when Artie discovers that Martina and Benny have been stealing credit card numbers from the restaurant's customers. When things turn violent between the two, Tony must step in and mediate, saving particular criticism for Chris for going to Hollywood rather than keeping his men under control.

Dear Editor:

I applaud the letters that were written by Vidya Gangadin...
I believe their energies will be invested in our students. To my family members, friends and supports on April 27 please vote for Vidya Gangadin and Aury Masa-Nunez for their year round commitment and who are true stakeholders to our students.

Sincerely,

Angel L. Valentin

Angel Valentin votes consistently along party lines and from what I can tell brings absolutely nothing to the table.
