If the teachers strike and she goes to either Dickinson, Ferris, Lincoln or Snyder I would let her stay home that day. If she goes to Liberty or McNair she should be fine.

I was a student during the last strike the schools won't be able to hire enough substitutes to control the kids. All they will do is put all the students in Auditoriums, Gyms and Cafeterias and the kids will quickly realize they run the show until this strike is over.

Personally, I've almost gotten into an accident near that used car lot. One time a tow truck actually stopped on the right lane as traffic was accelarating from the red light behind.

Another time they were directing traffic into/out of the the gate (that was destroyed) as cars were whizzing by, and the speed limit here I think, is is 40 mph. This was bound to happen - those people running that used car lot is making the road very dangerous.

So when a sidewalk is all torn up by a tree, to the point of being a hazard, it's the homeowner's liability?

While the former governor had declined to identify where these monies originated, Democratic leaders said Tuesday that a nonpartisan review of the transfers shows that $39.4 million came from school construction and other education-related accounts, including programs designed to expand preschool and provide grants for college students.

Is it just me, or does anyone out there think none of these offerings are really of any good (not even great) value for the money?

wtf? knowing those restaurants, I could eat better off a la carte than getting the set menu at those prices.

I thought the point of these is to get people to come and sample what they have to generate more business.

Let me know if anybody thinks there's a good deal in any of those restaurants

Manila is the capital of the Philippines. A lot of Filipinos moved to Grove St in the late 70s and petitioned for a section of Grove to be renamed

I'm new to JC (and the USA as a whole, fresh off the boat a year ago or so). These older names are far superior to the replacements. Actually, one of my peeves is the renaming of everything and anything to historical figures. Maybe if it was just surnames, it'd sit right... but it seems kinda odd to see things like "Martin Luther King Drive", "Ronald Reagan Boulevard" or "Warren G. Harding Middle School".

Then again, I'm probably showing my ignorance and Jackson, Henderson, and Manila were probably named after people (but at least it was just the surname)

You seem to not understand how actual professional investigations work, as opposed to the theater of the Hillary witch hunts. They don't leak, and when they have cooperating witnesses, no one knows till the witnesses have served their purpose and gathered more evidence. They don't make deals with indictees without getting plenty in return, it's not like the local ADA who just wants to move on to the next kid arrested for weed possession. This is far from over.


'They don't leak'. Did you really type that, lol?

If there was anything at all of substance about collusion we'd know it. What we do know is that a high level FBI staffer met with author of the phony Trump dossier-now that's collusion!

Not to mention the Justice Department collusion with the Clinton's over the 'accidental tarmac meeting' that the FBI colluded to try and hide from the US public.

The packages I've "lost" over the years have been handled by either USPS or FedEx. I lost 1 package in 5 years from UPS. So far I've lost 2 this year, one each from USPS and FedEx.
A lot of those workers just leave the package without even ringing the doorbell.

Don't assume that your package was "stolen" (in the traditional sense) if it's not there. Saturday FedEx marked a package of mine as delivered. I was home all day, basically watching and listening for the delivery and generally in sight line of my front window, and a FedEx truck never even came down my street. Maybe FedEx misdelivered, maybe FedEx is in on the scam.

This is terrible news many of the restaurant spaces are empty now not a good look for the area. I hope they get another good Chinese restaurant soon.

(Don't shoot the messenger - that was the actual Post headline.)

By Christian Gollayan November 19, 2017 | 11:26am

Jennifer Liepen and Sandy Patch own a $345,000 house in Jersey City that they’ve never lived in — which might not be so unusual, except for the fact that they don’t have any other home.

“We’re nomads,” Patch told The Post. “[We’re] moving to where resources are at any given time.”

Instead, the married couple moves into a different NYC apartment every week or so. As pet sitters, Liepin, 32, and Patch, 33, crash for free at various clients’ apartments and care for cats and dogs while their owners are out of town.

The pair allow themselves a combined weekly budget of just $100. Patch said they have saved “close to $50,000” apartment-hopping for the past two years.

Did you actually mail in your vote the last election? My daughter is studying overseas and mailed in her ballot last November, so it may be the same situation for her when she returns.

Oh, she also did not receive a sample ballot this time around - would that be a clue?

The fine volunteers at ps #25 were unable to give me anything more than “go to city hall” (they were very nice about it just lacked a go to person who could provide concrete answers). I have a feeling it may be a bit more complex than simply going to city hall. Any good info appreciated.

Is the rib-eye well-marbled? The pictures on the website are generic and the ones in Yelp do not appear so.

I gave Pampita Meat Shop on Central Ave a try. I picked up a rib-eye, blood sausage, and some pork sausage.

The rib-eye was 5 star restaurant grade quality (wet aged). It was melt in mouth tender. Expensive though.. a single 2 inch thick rib-eye set me back about $40. Unfortunately, this is too pricey for my budget to buy on a regular basis.

Got the blood sausages in the broiler right now, cooking for lunch.

They also carry imported grass fed beef.
