State rejects bid to expand golf course into Liberty State Park

Updated 5:12 PM; Posted 4:34 PM

The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Luxury golf course Liberty National's bid to expand onto the Caven Point area of Liberty State Park has been rejected by state environmental officials.

The golf course's owner, Paul Fireman, wanted to lease the roughly 20-acre section of the park and move three of its holes there, but New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection official George Chidley said in a letter sent Thursday to Liberty National that the DEP will not pursue the project "at this time." The agency oversees the 1,200-acre state park.

My mortgage company pays my taxes too (actually they contract it out). I still received my letter in the mail the same week I saw my property listed in ASI’s spreadsheet. I haven’t shared the letter with my mortgage company because these amounts are estimates and we haven’t actually been billed at the new amounts yet. When the new bills come out, my mortgage company will get it.


Did you need to sign for these tax letters - JC sent me something - I need to pick it up and sign for it...

$37 million awarded to N.J. couple in Johnson & Johnson baby powder cancer suit

JOE DZIEMIANOWICZ
BILL SANDERSON
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Updated: Friday, April 6, 2018, 8:23 PM

It’s soft, powdery, sweet-smelling — and, says a New Jersey jury, deadly.

Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay $37 million in the case of a man who said he got cancer from the company’s baby powder, which he believes contained talc laced with asbestos.

Banker Stephen Lanzo III was awarded $30 million in compensatory damages Thursday by a New Brunswick, N.J., jury. Lanzo’s wife, Kendra, got $7 million.

Lanzo, 46, said he used Johnson & Johnson talc-based powder products for more than 30 years.

Retired FDNY firefighter dies of 9/11-related cancer
He claimed that by inhaling dust from the products that contained cancer-causing asbestos, he contracted mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs.

The jury found J&J responsible for 70% of the damages and a division of France-based talc supplier Imerys was responsible for 30%.

Lanzo’s case was the first to go to trial in New Jersey, Johnson & Johnson’s home state. The jury sat barely a mile from J&J headquarters.

One of the company’s biggest shareholders is Woody Johnson, a pal of President Trump and the current U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom. Johnson, who owns the New York Jets, is a great-grandson of J&J founder Robert Wood Johnson.

Brooklyn mom with cancer fights for husband’s return from Mexico
J&J is fighting thousands of lawsuits claiming its talc products also cause ovarian cancer.

Talc itself is not believed to be cancerous. It’s a mineral made up mainly of magnesium, silicon and oxygen.

A banker claimed that using Johnson & Johnson talc-based products for decades caused his cancer.

But talc is often mined near asbestos, which is long proven to cause mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer. Mesothelioma is almost always fatal.

Johnson & Johnson and other companies say that since the 1970s, they’ve kept asbestos out of their baby powders and other talc products.

J&J denied the lawsuit’s charges and said its products — such as Johnson’s Baby Powder — don’t contain asbestos or cause cancer.

During the trial, J&J lawyers claimed Lanzo could have contracted mesothelioma from other sources, said media reports. It noted that the house in Montclair, N.J., where he grew up once had asbestos-wrapped pipes, and that the public schools attended were also treated for asbestos.

“While we are disappointed with this decision, the jury has further deliberations to conduct in this trial and we will reserve additional comment until the case is fully completed,” Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman Carol Goodrich said in a statement.

The jury will begin a second phase of the trial to consider punitive damages on Tuesday.

J&J faces talc-related lawsuits by 6,610 plaintiffs around the country, Reuters reports.

The claims are largely based on allegations that the company failed to warn women about the risk of developing ovarian cancer by using its products for feminine hygiene.

A Los Angeles judge in October tossed a $417 million verdict for a woman who said she got ovarian cancer from J&J talc products.

According to a United Nations Environment Programme report on the impact of tourism:

"Golf course maintenance can also deplete fresh water resources. In recent years golf tourism has increased in popularity and the number of golf courses has grown rapidly. Golf courses require an enormous amount of water every day and, as with other causes of excessive extraction of water, this can result in water scarcity. If the water comes from wells, overpumping can cause saline intrusion into groundwater. Golf resorts are more and more often situated in or near protected areas or areas where resources are limited, exacerbating their impacts."

And Tourism Concern (a British organisation that works "with communities in destination countries to reduce social and environmental problems connected to tourism") calculates that "an average golf course in a tropical country such as Thailand needs 1,500kg of chemical fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides per year and uses as much water as 60,000 rural villagers".

And just in case the archetypal plutocratic golfer is inclined to dismiss those concerns as only of interest to the denizens of developing-world tropical resort countries, it must be noted that the United States suffers from water scarcity and despoliation of natural land to feed the golf-playing frenzy as well. In water-scarce Las Vegas, for instance, golf courses accounted for 28 of the top 100 water users in a 2003 survey. And since access to water in the growing desert communities of Arizona and Nevada is subsidised by tax-payers throughout the country, all Americans pay the price for the wastefulness of their recreation.

Indeed, the proliferation of golf courses - there are now approximately 16,000 in the US, by far the most of any country in the world (with the UK coming in a distant second at 2,741), according to Golf Digest magazine - epitomises the profligate approach America has taken towards developing its landscape.

Golf courses and the attendant resort and retirement communities demonstrate a preference for carefully crafted imitations of nature and small-town life to the real thing, and they impose landscape and architectural norms better suited to the American northeast climate than the sun-belt, where development is booming. Indeed, golf even comes with its own class of vehicle - no other sport, save the other emerging American pastime of auto racing, can make the same claim, nor can other sports use nearly as much land per player.

Just as developers destroy real forest in the northeast to replace it with imitation forest on a golf course and attendant suburbia ("community" in the parlance of developers), in the southwest the norms of a much more arid climate are imposed. Free-standing homes that require more energy to heat and cool, surrounded by lush lawns adjacent to golf courses, both of which require tremendous amounts of water during 100-degree summers, are not natural to the desert. And yet they are constructed, from Florida to California.

These artificial monstrosities consume on average 150 acres of land that could be put to some more useful purpose, if not just left alone. From the Everglades to the San Fernando Valley, they pervert the natural habitat and divert water resources.

So if you turn on the TV and stumble on the US Open, pause before changing the channel. No, not to watch with bated breath as a guy in a sun-visor named Tiger or Phil swings a mallet every couple of minutes in an intense effort to poke a ball towards a tiny hole, but rather to consider whether the country could do with about 15,000 fewer places to play the silly game. After all, when you talk to someone who just came back from seeing the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone National Park you never hear them say: "Yeah, that was nice, but you know what it really needs? A golf course."

A helicopter carrying first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, had to be rerouted after one of its engines failed, law enforcement officials told CNN. The senior White House aides were flying from Washington, DC, to New York on Thursday afternoon in a two-engine helicopter when one engine failed, sources told the network. The chopper had to return to Ronald Reagan National Airport, where the couple hopped on a commercial flight instead. It is unclear how far into the less than two-hour trip they were when the engine failed. The aircraft was a Sikorsky owned by the Trump Organization.

Parents of NYC helicopter crash victim sue pilot for negligence

ABC News
March 11, 2018

PHOTO: Trevor Cadigan, 26, a former intern at ABC station WFAA in Dallas, seen with his father Jerry Cadigan, died after a helicopter crashed into the East River and flipped upside down

The parents of one of the victims killed in a helicopter crash in New York City's East River have filed a lawsuit against the pilot, Liberty Helicopters and other operators, claiming the defendants were negligent.

Five people drowned after the tourist helicopter plunged into the frigid East River of New York City on Sunday. Officials said the passengers chartered the helicopter for a photo shoot and were tightly harnessed because the doors were left open so they could get better pictures.

Killed in the crash were Daniel Thompson, 34, and Tristian Hill, 29, both of New York; Carla Vallejos-Blanco, 29, of Argentina; Brian McDaniel, 26, a firefighter from Dallas; and Trevor Cadigan, 26, who recently moved to New York from Dallas to start a journalism career.

The helicopter pilot, Richard Vance, 33, was the only survivor. While Vance was able to immediately free himself from his harness, the passengers remained buckled in and trapped in the helicopter, which flipped over and submerged.

Nancy and Jerry Cadigan, the parents of Trevor Cadigan, filed the suit, obtained by ABC News, in New York County Court Tuesday, claiming, among other things, that Liberty Helicopters failed to prepare the passengers properly in the event of a crash and that the company did not provide adequate maintenance on its helicopter to keep it from tipping over.

The Cadigans also accused Vance of failing to give the passengers a proper safety briefing and of being " careless in failing to take reasonable steps to extricate the passengers" after "he secured his own release."

The other defendants named in the suit were FlyNYON, a helicopter charter, and NYONAir, an aviation services company, both of which are in the business of operating, maintaining, servicing and distributing sightseeing helicopters, according to the lawsuit. They, too, are accused of negligence.

The lawsuit claims that FlyNYON and NYONAir both allegedly "implemented a policy to cinch passengers into heavy duty harnesses which are tied to the helicopter floor with only a knife for passengers to free themselves from [frigid] waters." The suit also states that FlyNYON and NYONAir were "negligent in that their policy of so-called helicopter 'doors-off' photo flights is inordinately dangerous and risky and should only be permitted for professional photographers in special situations and not for amateur tourist photographers."

Due to the doors being open, the helicopter quickly filled up with water and began to sink, officials said.

The helicopter drifted all the way down to E. 59th Street, where rescuers were finally able to reach it and free the trapped passengers by cutting their harnesses, according to FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro.

Vance told New York Police Department investigators a passenger's harness somehow got wrapped around the fuel shut-off switch, accidentally cutting off the fuel supply to the helicopter and resulting in engine failure, multiple officials briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

Gary Robb, a helicopter crash lawyer for 37 years who is representing the Cadigans, told ABC News earlier today that Vance's explanation of the crash was an unlikely scenario.

"I find it implausible that a strap could cause that lever to be actuated because you have to pull it up and back," Robb said.

"These open door helicopters are death traps," Robb said. "You need to be an escape artist like Houdini if you're upside down and in cold water."

In a statement announcing the lawsuit this evening, Robb said: "The family wants this helicopter operator to be held fully accountable for their son's death and to cease and desist this terribly unsafe open-door flight operation. It is their strongest desire that this should never happen again."

In a statement Monday, Liberty Helicopters said, "We are focused on supporting the families affected by this tragic accident and on fully cooperating with the FAA and the NTSB investigations. These agencies have asked us to respect the investigative process by referring all press inquiries to them for any further comment."

NYONAir said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened by the loss suffered by the family of Trevor Cadigan and will continue to work closely with the government authorities in their investigation of the accident.”

ABC News has reached out to FlyNYON and Vance for comment on the lawsuit but did not immediately hear back.

Hoboken Cops Say Man Allegedly Stole Credit Cards From Grimaldi's Pizzeria

The cards were used in several places between Hoboken and Jersey City to ring up more than $400 in purchases, police say.

Hoboken Cops Say Man Allegedly Stole Credit Cards From Grimaldi's Pizzeria

Hoboken, NJ – Hoboken police charged a Jersey City man with burglary and theft after he allegedly took multiple credit cards from a restricted area of Grimaldi's Pizzeria last month.

According to the Hoboken Police Department, a detective began an investigation into the theft after an employee reported that several of their personal credit cards were missing.

The cards were then used in several places between Hoboken and Jersey City to ring up more than $400 in purchases, police stated.

Through investigative efforts, Hoboken police identified Jason Lanzo, 33, as the person who allegedly used the credit cards.

He was arrested on Thursday evening, police said.

Great - hope it works! Keep in mind that when buying a board it helps to take photos of your exact board and match it up - get exact same board number ( exact same connectors ) - because sometimes manufacturers change components mid production of the given model TV.

Try a strong flashlight from the front and see if the picture is still faintly there - if so the led is the problem and might be fixable with settings - though unlikely. Look online and on youtube for help for your exact model number.
