The chain store ordinance is so convoluted that I could never attempt to explain...but grocery stores are specifically exempt. I will continue to buy my fish from JC Fishstand.

$1200 for an entire house?

I too have Chubb because no one else was insuring brownstones when I bought my house. $1200? Not even close....nor do I think that's a reasonable figure. I'm in Van Vorst but expect those two neighborhoods are comparable.

JCMUA confirms they were cleaning the basins at that hour to avoid dealing with cars -- traffic and parking.

That's my point now and my point in 2005. Improving public schools produces winners and losers. Some of the big winners are parents who don't have to double pay -- taxes AND tuition. Sending my children to LCCS allowed me to save for college.

Yvonne, I'm tired of public charter schools being the culprit. I don't live in a tax abated building either.

My 2005 letter to the Jersey Journal --- some arguments never change.

To the Editor:

Y_____ B_____ writes in today’s letter that charter schools are hurting Catholic schools. Or translated to its most basic terms, good public schools are causing Catholic and other private schools to have to compete for students. Isn’t that what school choice is about? A few years ago, your paper ran a front-page story on the same subject. At that time, you printed my letter in response:

“Let me see if I understand your thesis:

- We can’t have vouchers because those vouchers will destroy the public school system.
- We cannot offer better public schools such as public charter schools because they will ruin private Catholic schools.
- So we sit on our hands and do nothing.

Are you actually suggesting that we should not improve the public schools in order to save Catholic schools? Why aren’t we celebrating the fact that parents who pay property taxes to support public schools are choosing to send their children to a public school, confident that their children are getting a good education? Why aren’t we shouting from the rooftops that parents who have been scrimping and saving to send their children to private schools now want to send their children to public schools?”

So here we go again. Not more than a week ago, Ken Thorbourne wrote about the excellent performance of some of this city’s fine public charter schools on the standardized state third and fourth grade tests – schools that have beat the city and state averages on state tests not just once, but several years in a row. (Unlike public charter schools, Catholic and other private schools are not required to have their students take these tests so there are no comparable school report cards available.) It is axiomatic that an improvement in public education will put competitive pressure on private schools -- religious and secular. An improvement in our public schools also means that Jersey City is no longer a way station for families on their journey out to the suburbs. It means that public schools such as the Learning Community Charter School (the school my children attend) have wait lists for admission year after year.

Ms. B_____ speaks of the tax burden of public charter schools but public education has always been a tax “burden”. That being said, anyone who bothers to understand the facts knows that public charter schools operate on a much smaller per child allocation from the state than public district schools. In addition, while public district schools are provided housing, public charter schools have no separate funding for buildings and so must pay for housing out of their operational budgets. Talk about a fine and efficient education!

Call Emma Lam, owner of A Small Green Space at 917-414-2993.

Emma and team designed and installed a beautiful garden for us. We did not have drainage issues but we recommended her to neighbor who did. They were very happy with the results.

No, that's not what Bodhipooh wrote. He said that one won't even be able to get on a train to get into Manhattan. So instead one would have to get on a train going in the wrong direction and stay on when it turns around. The "seated" part was not the point, but odds are one could get a seat going against traffic.
