If not, you are going to have an issue with the law when it comes to daycare, preschool, regular school, etc.

BTW: because immunity fades over time and the anti-vaccine movement, Rubella (measles), which is one of the most contagious diseases known to man is making a comeback. It is especially deadly for children.

Please re-think your anti-vaccine stance.





and...unvaccinated children have a 90 percent chance of getting measles. FYI, measles is airborne and remains in the air for up to two hours and can also be transmitted through a ventilation system. (example) A person who is infectious with the virus and goes to Gap kids at 11:30am and leaves at 12:00pm and you come in with your unvaccinated child at 12:30pm, your unvaccinated child has a 90% chance of exposure.

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.

Re: Amazon US Post office delivery issues

Home away from home


This is their worst year for deliveries.

Adding to that the new trend is UPS local has our packages and transferring to USPS smartpost which is causing an additional 2-5 days for deliveries.

USPS will scan the item was delivered and when I call the next day to my local post office, we find the item is sitting there.

Some of the Amazon drivers will also scan it was delivered 2-5 hours before the actual delivery or leaving it at a wrong house number.

This on top of all the package thefts made this a horrible online shopping season for many.

I have set up text alerts for all of my online deliveries. This way I have better control of what is coming my way and if their is a problem I can react quickly.


FYI Contact numbers for Amamzon carriers.

Monroe, I have no first hand knowledge of this. I grew up in New York and our schools were closed for Jewish High Holy days.

IMO children of all faiths and cultures should have the ability to celebrate and observe their most important holidays without being absent (and affecting their attendance record) from school. When you say "regular" absence is that different from an "excused absence"? Can someone chime in on this...


I'm answering my own question. This applies to Jersey City Public Schools....The school district told me that if a child stays home from school for religious observance, it's considered and excused absence.

Disbarred lawyer stole $1.5M from clients, AG says

TRENTON — A former Jersey City-based attorney has been indicted for stealing more than $1.5 million from clients over the course of a decade, authorities said.

Joseph J. Talafous Jr., of Toms River, allegedly targeted elderly clients and other vulnerable targets, taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from estates and trusts he oversaw, according to acting Attorney General Robert Lougy.

I don't get the relationship to the argument. I can dress up as a woman and use the women's room. Or you can dress as a man and use the men's room. What does transgender have to do with that?

Besides, what's the big deal? No one can really see anything anyway. If you're gone to Broadway shows, women use the men's room all the time because the women's room is too crowded during intermission. I have no problem with that.



Exactly....and the people she quoted were not dressing up as women because they were transgender.

Let it Snow! More


Yeah, let's hope it snows so it pleases your sights regardless of the hardship suffered by the elderly, damage to roads and cars due to salt, and the economic loss by businesses. But whatever, none of that are important as long as you don't miss snow anymore. Yay for selfishness.

Digestive Issuses
Shooting Pain in Back, Hips, Neck
Weird Headaches in temples


Was just curious if others have experiences this recently since I've come across 3 other people with these same symptoms.

Thanks for the feedback everyone



The best thing you can do for yourself is see a specialist. There are many very good Infectious Disease Doctors in Jersey City that will run tests based on your symptoms and travel history. vector borne and zoonotic diseases are usually part of the tests that are run.

This is not the kind of line in the sand you want to draw especially when this force is understaffed & there already is a hostile element living here.


Couldn't have said it better. Agreed 100%. And as the sister of a fallen U.S. Marine, I can tell you, real military men/women cringe over this type of false bravado, particularly from civilians who have never served one day on the front lines. It's shameful.


Sorry for your loss, Jerseymom and I also agree with both of these statements. In a civilized society, we do not preach one thing and the next action; we stoop down to their level by daring them to commit violence.

Very well stated.

The only people complaining are people with a political ax to grind with Fulop.


JP, we may have to agree to disagree on this one. Maryanne is well liked by the community in all wards. She is a "by the book" person and has made herself available 24/7 to anyone that needed her assistance. For those who are truly upset with this executive decision and are publicly commenting on other social media sites and some on this site are not known as "anti-Fulop". It seems to be more of a venting and support for a well liked employee.


It's sad to see some of the postings attacking Maryanne and Elizabeth. Neither of them deserve it. I truly hope this administration utilizes Maryanne properly in whatever capacity they put her in. She is smart, honest and passionate woman, who will shine in whatever her next role will be for Jersey City.
