While I can understand the discomfort you've had with not feeling well, unless that hot chocolate was the only thing you consumed that day, it's a bit of reach to blame the DD in a public forum such as this. Plus, it's flu season and there's a nasty bug that comes on really fast and makes you feel like crap for a while (and includes gastro symptoms). Our whole family had it in varying degrees and almost everyone I know has been impacted by the same bug. Hope you're feeling better.

Ten priests who spent part of their careers in New Jersey are on a new list of 50 Jesuits who have been accused of child sexual abuse...

...Nine of the ten Jesuits on the list with New Jersey ties served at either St. Peter’s Prep, St. Peter’s University or in St. Peter’s Parish in Jersey City -- one of the centers of Jesuit life and training in New Jersey. Most were at St. Peter’s briefly early in their careers.

Firing a former governor: Fulop's dumbest feud? | Editorial
Updated 6:31 AM; Posted 6:30 AM

By Star-Ledger Editorial Board eletters@starledger.com


An ex-governor who has done admirable work helping people who get out of prison find jobs and reacclimate suddenly gets fired, and nobody can figure out why.

But somewhere behind it all is Steven Fulop. The Jersey City mayor won't answer our questions. As usual when he gets into hot water, he's hiding under his desk.

All he'll say is that former Gov. Jim McGreevey was canned over accusations of "misappropriating funds." What funds? How? He won't explain.

The scammers are out and about again. Please, please, please take a moment to warn your senior neighbors/relatives and folks that you know who may be susceptible to this type of call. The elderly are particularly easy marks.

By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

The phone rang and the news was shocking.

A Hoboken woman was told she was going to be arrested, but there was a way out. All she had to do was withdraw all the money from her bank account, put it into gift cards and then supply the caller — who claimed to be representing the Social Security Administration in Texas — with the codes to transfer the money from the cards.

She followed the instructions and now she’s out $5,900 after realizing that she was never in danger of being arrested and the call was part of scam, Hoboken police said.

The woman was one of two victims who contacted the police department after falling for the same scheme, said Hoboken Lt. Edgardo Cruz, who noted that the department has received calls from residents about several types of scams recently.

One last thought - did the city give advance warning to the developer that they were failing to meet the conditions of the tax abatement? Was the developer given an opportunity for due process or an opportunity to correct deficiencies with the tax abatement while the building was under construction.


The tax abatement agreement says if the city warns of default, the developer has 30 days to fix the problem. There is the opportunity for a default.

The city issued the default on Oct. 23. 30 days later was Nov. 22.

The developer's lawyer last night claimed they didn't know until Dec. 17 about the potential revocation of the abatement, so he claims the 30-day period is still happening.


But wasn't construction completed already? Could the developer even have an ample opportunity to adequately address the default? I wonder if that will play into the legal argument. While I applaud the city's efforts to make sure that developers play by the rules, this does seem punitive. I wonder what other forces are at work here.

JC Council to Vote on Canceling Two Abatement Deals for Non Compliance
#8
Home away from home
Home away from home


Body of an email received today from Mayor Fulop:

"When I first took office as mayor in 2013, I pledged that I would curtail Jersey City’s 30-year reliance on long term tax abatements by previous mayors. I outlined a plan in the campaign, and as I first took office, we limited tax abatements downtown. We then issued an executive order as a policy to use them only as a tool to incentivize development away from the waterfront, which was successful throughout other parts of the City. Ultimately, we further limited their use citywide.

At this point, the City has granted ZERO market rate tax abatements (anywhere in the city) for nearly two years! So our plan is working and we should all be proud.

We invested in a compliance officer to monitor previously issued tax abatements. As we go through the records and find non-fulfilled commitments by developers towards Jersey City residents, we will be moving to take aggressive action and cancel their tax abatement.

The first two cancellations will be voted on by the City Council tomorrow night. One is a cancellation of a tax abatement on the West Side and one is a cancellation of a project downtown.


There are mixed opinions on the council on whether to terminate a developer’s tax abatement for noncompliance, and while many have spoken publicly about the need to do this, tomorrow is the opportunity to take action.

We will continue to work together with you and the council in moving Jersey City forward."

If they're parking on a public sidewalk or in a way that would restrict access to those with disabilities, I would think that may be an ADA violation. You can submit a complaint here:

That may be the way around their non-compliance.

Things that make you go hmmm....

JERSEY CITY — Whether a Jersey City administrator can legally sponsor ordinances is up for debate and the city has two different opinions depending on its audience.

The city’s legal team told council members that yes, Business Administrator Brian Platt can sponsor legislation. But when in front of Hudson County Superior Court Judge Peter Bariso, Jersey City’s legal eagles conceded that no, Platt cannot.

What a tangled web we weave...

Here's a little food for thought. This is just to make one consider the issue of consent and how one obtains it and keeps it - is a contract/app/agreement really workable?

New app lets you request consent

Re: JC Woman Accuses Murphy Staffer of Rape

Thank you for the question. Here are a few of my thoughts:

1. Sexual assault needs to stop being a "man vs. woman" issue. It's a perpetrator vs. victim issue. Victims need to feel comfortable reporting a crime - but in a case of a sexual assault, it's just not that easy. It's not the laws that need changing, per se, it's the stigma and denial that happens to victims by themselves, their peers, employers, coworkers, teachers, religious leaders and families that needs to be changed. There's a lot that happens between the time an assault takes place to the time that it's reported - we need to work on that as a society.

2. Sexual assault needs to be adjudicated in a court of law - not in a sensationalist media event or in hearings. There is a procedure to follow, laws and rules of evidence. The perp, male or female, is innocent until proven guilty. That's the U.S. justice system, like it or not.

3. I cannot comment with certainty on this case in particular. But Hudson County never disappoints and often stinks. Things are covered up here at an alarming rate by people with just a little bit of power. Katie seems to have followed protocol and does make a striking allegation. She has risked enormously to put herself in the front of a media storm. I admire her tenacity and courage and really hope she gets her legitimate day in court.

4. Moving forward - talk to your children, tell them your own stories (most of us likely are or know someone who is a victim of some kind of unwanted sexual comment, groping, or assault - most often by someone we know). Role play, create a plan, a code word, open up the dialogue to your sons and daughters about what is right and wrong and empower them with tools for situations where they could become a victim. Create a loving environment where open dialogue is welcome and your kids know they have a safe harbor in a storm.

Just my two cents.

Dog Food Brand Recall - Excessive Vit. D

While I know this isn't JC related, we have a lot of dog families here...please pass this along. Vitamin D poisoning is awful.

By Sophie Nieto-Munoz | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com snietomunoz@njadvancemedia.com
NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

Eight dry dog food brands have been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration due to “excessive, potentially toxic” amounts of vitamin D.

Nutrisca
Natural Life Pet Products
Sunshine Mills, Inc.
ANF, Inc.
Lidi (Orlando brand)
Kroger
ELM Pet Foods, Inc.
Ahold Delhaize (Nature’s Promise)

In some cases, there is as much as 70 times the intended amount, the FDA said in a press release. While the vitamin is an essential nutrient for dogs, high doses can cause serious health issues, such as kidney failure or death.

New Jersey lawmakers will begin scrutinizing the first scandal of Gov. Phil Murphy’s young administration Tuesday, as the senior official accusing a former fellow top staffer of rape testifies in public.

In what promises to be a dramatic day at the Statehouse, a special legislative committee of mostly women will hear from Katie Brennan, chief of staff to the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, who has said she was raped during Murphy’s campaign for governor by a top aide.

Brennan has said she went public with her allegations only after prosecutors declined to press charges and members of Murphy’s inner circle failed to take action.

Re: Okay, so who here thinks the Katyn monument needs to go?

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — The Fulop administration is backing off its planned relocation of the Katyn monument in an effort to halt an expected delay in a new payroll tax, according to an email obtained by The Jersey Journal.

Mayor Steve Fulop sent council members an email on Tuesday telling them his administration would ask them to introduce an ordinance Wednesday that would rescind its June 13 ordinance that authorized moving the monument from Exchange Place to York Street.

Fulop and his council allies had previously made the decision to let voters decide via a Dec. 11 referendum whether to approve the planned relocation, but the mayor told council members in his email he's worried that the same petition drive used to try to reverse the council's Katyn ordinance would be used to stop implementation of the payroll tax, a 1 percent business tax intended to help fund the local school district.
