That's funny - I drove by today, saw the permit on the window and wondered the same thing. That place is an awesome property. It used to be a firehouse. There's a huge space on the bottom floor, a small, school-like gymnasium on the second floor and a (potentially) kick ass apartment that overlooks the skyline. I looked at the property a while ago but there was a remediation issue there if I remember correctly. The uses were amazing.

HIGHLAND PARK -- Police say a former borough man illegally videotaped women, including a 19-year-old who he filmed secretly while she showered at his home.

Karl M Kjer, 57, was charged Friday with one count invasion of privacy for allegedly using a hidden camera to record the teenager in June, 2015, Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said.

Kjer, who now lives in Jersey City, was charged after the 19-year-old was identified, Carey said in a release Tuesday.

Two people were injured in a shooting on Bergen Avenue Sunday evening.

The shooting was reported at about 6 p.m. near Clendenny Avenue. Both victims, a man and woman in their 20s, were transported to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment, according to police sources with knowledge of the investigation.

It's unclear the extent of their injuries. Officials could not immediately provide information.

At the scene, detectives canvassed the area with at least eight evidence markers lining the sidewalk outside a home.

Maybe it's an old gardener's tale, but it just wasn't the warmth of the soil, it was the longer days and sunlight exposure that went into the Mother's Day planting formula. Just a thought.

My dear old Dad's rule of thumb was to start planting outdoors after Mother's Day. If you're going all in, you can start your seedlings indoors just about now and germinate your tomatoes from seed. If you're a new gardener, I recommend starting with the established seedlings you buy from a good garden center to plant outdoors (not Home Depot - drive and find somewhere good!). Sorry, I'm a garden nursery snob.

A couple of hints learned from my dad:

Make sure you do a good job before hand of fertilizing and tilling your soil in your outdoor pots or plots. Planting marigold flowers next to your tomatoes provides a natural bug repellent. Releasing live ladybugs helps control aphids (and it's the coolest thing to watch). And remember to prune your tomato suckers!

This is a great resource for gardeners.

Good luck!

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council will consider a "no knock" law aimed at aggressive real estate investors next week, with council members saying today the measure will protect longtime residents.

The ordinance would update the city's anti-solicitation law by including anyone looking to purchase real estate for themselves or for a third party. It would also create a "no knock" registry letting investors know which homes are owned by someone not interested in selling.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... to_discourage_aggres.html



Unless there are real teeth behind reporting, enforcement and penalties, this ordinance just won't work. The parties that engage in this behavior don't care a whit about rules, propriety or people's privacy. They are emboldened - and they push and push until they get their way. It's been a growing problem and I'm happy the council is investigating this - as long as residents have a sensible and real-time way of getting redress against offenders.

With good reason besides dubious causes (a fool and his money...). GoFundMe takes a nice chunk of each donation. Further, as I've run a few of them for community members in need, people can make donations and then effectively cancel them a month later when their credit card statement arrives and they don't "remember" making that charge. That comes right back out of your bank account as a reverse charge if you've withdrawn the collected funds and used them for the charitable purpose. It's happened to our fundraisers several times and GoFundMe doesn't care. Also, funds you collect could be taxable in certain cases - GoFundMe sends out 1099's at year end - and beneficiaries are on the hook for these taxes.

The New Jersey woman who fell to her death from an escalator at the Oculus transit hub was apparently horsing around on the handrail, mimicking a superhero before she lost her balance, a source said Sunday.

Officials who saw video of the tragic accident said victim Jenny Santos, 29, fell 34 feet early Saturday after laying prone on the banister of the escalator with her arms spread-eagle, like she was pretending to be flying, the source said.

JERSEY CITY -- The new Krispy Kreme, located steps from the Grove Street PATH station, is in the perfect spot for commuters looking to grab a coffee and a hot glazed doughnut.

It's also inside a zone Jersey City approved two years ago that limits where chain stores like Krispy Kreme can open. Mayor Steve Fulop was behind that measure, saying at the time it would preserve the character of Downtown neighborhoods and help mom-and-pop retailers thrive.

...Krispy Kreme was allowed to move in, the source said, "because (Fulop) likes the doughnuts."

I'm working on this and should have something soon. Essentially the city says this isn't really a chain because the store is a "factory."


That's really interesting, Terrence. If you haven't already, you should take a look at the information in the KK annual report. The long term outlook is this;

As we consider the Company’s future growth opportunities, we expect to transition to a more franchise-based model domestically. On the international side of the equation, we are already 100% franchised.

We believe a more franchised-based approach will allow us to grow more efficiently and more profitably over the long-term. As part of this transition, we will become even more focused on brand marketing. Initiatives in this area in the near term include rolling out the next level of our loyalty and rewards program, further leveraging our existing digital and social media platforms, and continuing to build our menu with new and more exciting
products. We aspire to not just be a good franchisor, but a great one.


Essentially, that means that KK is moving away from the Company Store concept (that includes their factory stores - which bake product on premise) and are moving towards franchises.

Factory store definition: Factory stores have a doughnut-making production line, and many of them sell products to on-premises consumers and through CPG channels to approved retailers of Krispy Kreme products to more fully utilize production capacity. Factory stores also include commissaries which
serve only CPG customers. Satellite shops, which serve only on-premises customers, are smaller than most factory
stores, do not have production lines, and include the hot shop and fresh shop formats.
p. 2

Is that exactly what the downtown JC location is getting? Pages 5 & 6 give a good definition of what the factory concept is and the square footage per store.

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council has approved a controversial ordinance proposed by Mayor Steven Fulop's administration limiting chain stores in the Downtown section of the city.

The ordinance would limit chain stores to a maximum of 30 percent of ground-floor commercial space in Downtown buildings, although some portions of the Waterfront -- including Newport -- will be exempt.

The council voted 8-1 Wednesday to approve the measure that adopts "amendments to various redevelopment plans to add formula business restrictions" despite numerous pleas against the ordinance from audience members at the Wednesday night meeting. Ward C councilman Rich Boggiano cast the lone dissenting vote.

"This is a solution in search of a problem," said Aaron Morrill, co-founder of Civic JC and owner of a Two Boots franchise pizzeria in Jersey City. "The notion that chain stores are going to come in and run mom and pop stores out of business is wrong."

Ward E councilwoman Candice Osborne, who represents Downtown, disagreed.

"It's completely reasonable for the city to say what types of businesses we want to have in a certain area."

The ordinance defines chain stores as those having "multiple locations within the region that exhibit standardized characteristics such as logos, menus, store decor" and more. Grocery stores will not be affected by the ordinance.

Ward D councilman Michael Yun, who voted in favor of the ordinance, joked that he was happy the restrictions were slated for Downtown Jersey City, and not his district.

"Come to the Jersey City Heights!" he exclaimed, inviting chain stores to his part of town.

Ward F councilwoman Diane Coleman also welcomed chains to her neighborhood.

"We have a lot of space on MLK Drive," said Coleman.

Audience members were overwhelmingly against the ordinance.

"The mayor's job is to run the city, not be the nanny of Jersey City," said Yvonne Balcer, a Jersey City resident and frequent presence at council meetings.

"It's a bad idea to restrict business," added Daniel Sicardi.

Fulop will sign the measure within 10 days of the council's vote and it will take effect 20 days later, according to the City Clerk's office.

The new rules were first approved by the Jersey City Planning Board in early April before moving on to the City Council.

KING: Had Muslim gunmen killed six white Christians, half the world would have Canadian flags as profile pictures

SHAUN KING
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Tuesday, January 31, 2017, 10:26 AM

On Sunday night an anti-Muslim white nationalist allegedly walked into a mosque in Canada and shot and killed six people and left at least eight others critically wounded in a hail of gunfire. All by itself, that news is utterly devastating — or at least it should be — but something truly despicable is going on.

For nearly a full day, tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of conservatives all over the internet blamed the shooting on Muslims. The words "Allahu Akbar" were the top trending topic in the United States as the rumors spread that multiple Muslim gunmen screamed this as they shot worshippers in the mosque.

Even right now, when I just Googled the words "Allahu Akbar," the top links were news stories from all over the world declaring that multiple gunmen were heard chanting this as they shot and killed those six people.

But the initial reports weren't accurate. The shooting had one lone gunman — not two, as officials initially said. The suspect was not a Muslim. He was not from Morocco. He was not bearded or wearing Muslim garb. He didn't speak Arabic. Yet, 24 hours later, Fox News still has not retracted or addressed their widely shared tweet that it was a Muslim Moroccan who did the shooting.

Instead, the suspected shooter was a bigoted 27-year-old white man known to many as a conservative online troll and white nationalist who voiced support for Donald Trump. Perhaps this is why Donald Trump has not personally mentioned this mass shooting even though it was the deadliest single incident in North America since he was inaugurated?

What I know is this — had the shooter actually been a Muslim who walked into a quaint little Baptist church full of white folk singing Amazing Grace, not only would Trump be genuinely outraged right now, the entire conservative machine would be mobilizing against what they call radical Islam. It appears that radical whiteness simply does not bother them.

Well Worth the Read...

Transgender children can now join the Boy Scouts
By Associated Press January 30, 2017 | 7:39pm

DALLAS — The Boy Scouts of America says it will allow transgender children who identify as boys to enroll in its boys only programs.

The organization announced Monday that it had made the decision to base enrollment in boys only programs on the gender a child or parent lists on the application to become a scout. The organization had previously held a policy that relied on the gender listed on a child’s birth certificate.

A spokeswoman for the organization says it made the decision based on states and communities changing how gender is defined.

A transgender child in Secaucus, New Jersey, was asked late last year to leave his Scout troop after parents and leaders found out he is transgender.

Add yourself to the list.

In the real history of America, immigration policy was settled by the question: will accepting these immigrants benefit our nation?

It's true that we took plenty of unskilled immigrants, but that's because there was plenty of unskilled work that needed to be done. Working to construct the railroads was one huge project.

We never had some kind of open door policy, and it's not going to happen now. It would be unsustainable given our generous social services which are available for immigrants.

And your terrible analogy to the Jews was already debunked in the Atlantic article I posted. Not to mention, the safe zones that President Trump is working to establish in the Middle East will be a safe place for refugees to live.


Are you really asserting that Jews were not turned away from America during the Holocaust?

Witnesses reported the gunmen were screaming Allahu Akbar! Both had a Quebecois accent.



From Gatesofvienna.net

As reported in tonight’s news feed, gunmen shot up a mosque in Quebec City, killing at least five people.

Early news stories gave a bare-bones account of the incident, followed by the Narrative describing “Islamophobia” in Quebec, and a recent increase of Islamophobic incidents.

Then came reports from eyewitnesses who said that the gunmen had been shouting “Allahu Akhbar” as they fired their weapons. That shot holes in the Narrative, too — unless, of course, the shooters were white-supremacist neo-Nazis who were just pretending to be Muslims.

The following video sheds some light on what may actually have happened in Quebec City tonight. It’s taken from the Facebook page of the mosque that was attacked. In it you’ll hear the imam of the mosque discuss the enmity of former members of the congregation who were unhappy with the blasphemous “moderation” of this mosque — that is, the shot-up mosque was full of murtadeen, or apostates.

Tonight’s attack may well have been an execution of Islamic justice against murtadeen by Salafist zealots.

Many thanks to Sandra Solomon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

University student identified as shooter in deadly mosque attack
By Yaron Steinbuch January 30, 2017 | 8:20am | Updated

A French-Canadian university student was identified Monday as the alleged shooter who killed six people and wounded 19 others as they prayed in a Quebec City mosque — an assault the Canadian prime minister called a “terrorist attack.”

The suspect, Alexandre Bissonnette, 27, was an anthropology and political science student at the University of Laval, the oldest French-language university in North America, a source told Reuters.

Bissonnette — who was not previously known to police — lived with his parents in a single-family home on Tracel Street in the Cap-Rouge district, where police conducted a search Monday.

Bissonnette’s father is listed in the sales deed as an investigator, the Montreal Gazette reported.

Authorities earlier Monday named two suspects, but a Canadian of Moroccan descent was later said to be a witness to the Sunday night bloodbath at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec in the Ste-Foy.
