I recommend Anthony Pino, based in Hoboken.

I have known him for over 20 years- he is very good.

So who elects the JC BOE? And the point was general and not specific to me, nor a single vote.

You said you weren’t looking for a pay increase - just the one who may vote against it. Sure sounded to me like you were referring to yourself, as that is what the first person is often used for.

Teachers need to keep the BOE, City, County and State electorates on their side. Exploiting young kids looks bad to a high percentage of that electorate.


Again, you saw (I’m assuming) children present at one school. If I am mistaken about the number of schools you visited to make your claims, I apologize. I believe PS 16 was the original school mentioned in this message thread. You were provided with explanations as to why the children were there- either employees own kids or children brought by their parents who chose to support teachers. You disagree with those decisions but that's about it. Time to move on.

Just because the kids were with their parents doesnt give anyone a pass. There are parents who beat their kids as well - just because they are the parents, does it make it right? As far as using the logic of "learning from real life experience", well c'mon, you are telling that to justify pulling 4-5 years old? How many of you decided to sit in front of the kids, and told them about both the sides and then asked them "hey, so what do you think Which side is strong?"

And the teacher's union or whoever leads these protests should have said NO to including kids in these protests. Being teachers, they should have known better.


I'd say it is quite a jump to go from kids walking around their school to parents beating their kids. No need to sensationalize a situation here.

For the record, it is teachers themselves who are organizing these protests. Therefore, it is their decision to do whatever they feel like doing. Sorry if you don't agree, but I am not quite sure what gives you the authority to make statements like "being teachers, they should have known better." Known better what? What does being a teacher have to do with it? You clearly do not agree with the protests, and that is completely within your rights as a citizen to have those opinions. In the same way, teachers have the same rights and can do as they please, "knowing better" having absolutely nothing at all to do with anything.


I clearly said that "..irrespective of the merits of the case". No where I mentioned if I support the protests or not. You definitely need to go back to a school and learn reading again.

Wrong is wrong. Getting 3 years old kids to shout and hanging a protest banner from their neck, just to gather sympathy, is WRONG.


My apologies for misinterpreting your tone as one of being against the protests. I acknowledge my mistake.

However, instead of being rude and using caps lock to "yell" I will simply reiterate my main point from my previous post. You are 100% entitled to your opinion that the presence of children is wrong. Every other person is equally entitled to have his/her opinion as well. No opinion is right or wrong. Not mine. Not yours. Caps Lock does not make something TRUTH.

Unless you are a member of the Jersey City Board of Education or a member of the Jersey City Education Association, I am not quite sure when you feel you will have the opportunity to vote on the pay increase. The negotiations teams of each party come to an agreement on a contract proposal that each feels is acceptable. The membership of the union votes to ratify or not, then it is presented to the board for approval. So unless you happen to be a member of one of the organizations, you aren't voting on anything.

Incorrect. This is an opinion. There is a difference. If you are so concerned about these cats, use your time and energy to find them homes instead of bashing an agency that works to help animals.

I’m not sure what you expect LHS to do. They quite simply do do not have the means to help all “friendly” outdoor cats in JC. If they did, they would. It is easier to find additional animal rescue organizations in our area than it is to register an account to post for the first time on JC List. If someone googles “Jersey City cat rescue” I am sure that information is available.

It is clear you are unsatisified with LHS with this situation. Time to move on as posting here is not going to accomplish anything towards the goal of helping these two cats. There are rules and procedures that the organization has in place. Just because we, the members of the public, do not understand or even agree with them, does not change anything. And really... “on top of what they make as a shelter?” Yeah- LHS is rolling in the cash as we speak. Have you been there? Have any idea how hard the staff works for the salaries they receive? Dedication and passion for helping animals is what I see when I am there volunteering. That and nothing else. Anyone who implies differently is quite simply wrong.

LHS has successfully placed cats in warehouses, barns and other such situations when the cats are not looking to live with a family. I know they are always looking for other contacts of places for cats like this. Free rodent control!

The staff of LHS works with what limited resources they have to help the greatest number of animals and people possible. There are constant efforts to get cats (and dogs, ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits and whatever other animals are there) adopted. LHS also works with citizens who find themselves in the unfortunate situation of having to give up their pets.

I am unclear as to what people expect LHS to do regarding the large numbers of stray cats in our city. Trust me, if they could fix the problem (no pun intended) I am more than confident they would.

Our tax dollars are already being used for general operation of the shelter, and luckily thousands of generous donors and volunteers give of their money and time each year to help our city's homeless animals. In a dream world, LHS would have a huge facility- able to take in literally every cat or other animal that needs a home. At this point, that is obviously not the case. Actually, a dream world would have no need for an animal shelter...
As a member of the public, I might not understand each policy that is in place, but I defer to the expertise and experience of the shelter administration and staff to make the decisions that best serve our community. I also volunteer at the shelter, make financial donations when I can and have fostered over 40 kittens in the past several years.

I understand that you feel there are "dozens and dozens of complaints about LHS..." and I can assure you that there are dozens and dozens of instances where LHS has literally saved lives. I would be interested in knowing what your suggestions are about how LHS can better serve homeless cats- and I am sure they would consider them as well, understanding the parameters of their realities as they plan policies and procedures for helping animals as best they can.

Thank you to those who have provided the original poster with ideas about local organizations and individuals to contact.

Landlord question
#19
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Hello-
This is actually me asking for a friend...not the old pretend "asking for a friend."

In their original lease (signed in Fall of 2006) tenants were to pay 1/3 of PSE&G bill for heat/hot water. The landlord never supplied a bill...tenants still live there...apparently one time he asked them for it, but never followed up.

Lease is LONG expired...and suddenly landlord has shown up with bills for approximately $7000. The tenants acknowledge signing the clause, but wonder if he can all of a sudden decide to collect. Is there any sort of past-practice statute?

I would appreciate direction of where to look for guidance. Snarky comments? Not so helpful, though I know they are entertaining here on JCLIST! Hopefully the world has more exciting issues to offer for snark potential.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

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.

Re: St. Anthony's High School is Closing
#24
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


One reason why Catholic schools flourished in decades past is that a Catholic education was deemed to be of upmost importance by families. As a child in Hoboken, there were several Catholic elementary schools. As the community changed, families moved away, and schools began closing. The Catholic schools that served the Irish, Italian and Polish communities of decades past in JC are not staying open for a number of reasons, including the changing of the population of JC. As families from non-Catholic backgrounds move in, the need to enroll their kids in the schools dwindles.
There is no cookie-cutter reason why schools close- there are so many factors. I agree that St. Anthony's will be missed and no one can question the integrity and dedication of Coach Hurley. What a shame that the school was not able to be saved.

Hello Everyone- I am looking for information about the various PreK-3 programs, especially those in the Heights. Perhaps there is already a thread about this topic- just point me in the right direction.

If not, is camping out for Concordia worth it? How about Parkside near Pershing Field?

My neighbors would be grateful for any insight you can offer. Thanks so much.

Have a great day.

June is your month!
#29
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Have you been thinking about adopting a dog or cat? Nothing beats the heat better than adding some cat or dog fur to your home. OK, maybe a giant AC and a frosty beverage would work a little better, but that air conditioner is USELESS during the winter.

During the month of June, all dogs over 40 pounds and all adult cats will have their adoption fees waived to qualified adopters. June is one of the busiest months at Liberty Humane Society, Jersey City's municipal shelter. If you adopt a pet, you are saving a life! If this is not a good time for you to adopt personally, spread the word!

Visit www.libertyhumane.org to learn a bit about some of the awesome animals looking for homes!
