Hi guys,
Anyone know of a faster way to get from down Jersey city (Grand and Barrow) to Secaucus? I just got a new job there and am finding that it takes me 10 minutes more to drive 6 miles up then it did to drive 26 miles to to my previous job in Edison. I have already tried montgomery to summit and JFK and neither of really worked out.

The Jersey City Waterfront Parks Conservancy was exploring this idea with LSP who also owns the peninsula. Given the economy, I doubt anything can happen unless it is funded privately. I believe the idea was to have a swing bridge for pedestrians similar to the Santiago Calatrava did in Buenos Aires although from the meeting I went to, this was mentioned as Phase III but that was a couple years ago.

As someone who has had interactions with these dogs, I can say that they are not well adjusted, normal dogs. I would not put out my hand for them to sniff. Three separate reported incidents requiring stitches (among many other unreported incidents) for which the dogs were court ordered to be removed from the state, I believe qualifies them to be considered vicious. Under proper care, they might be able to be (re)trained but not hers.

But that's not the real issue. They were ordered to be removed FROM the state and they were not. And then in the hurricane, she decided to take them back. And now a judge has placed the dogs back into her care IN the state. This doesn't make any sense considering the pattern of behavior for following the court orders.

Dangerous dogs banned from Hudson County; owner gets 100 hours of community service
Published: Friday, October 07, 2011, 2:09 PM Updated: Friday, October 07, 2011, 2:10 PM

Susan Kolb, the owner of two South African Boerboels accused in at least three vicious attacks in Jersey City, is sentenced on Friday, Oct. 7, 2011, to two years probation for contempt of court when she violated a 2009 agreement to move the dogs out of state. Reena Rose Sibayan/The Jersey Journal
Owner of two vicious dogs gets probation gallery (10 photos)
Two dangerous dogs will not be put down, but they never set foot again in Hudson County and their owner was sentenced to probation and must serve 100 hours of community service, two courts said in separate rulings.
In a deal struck in Jersey City Municipal Court this week, Susan Kolb, the owner of two South African Boerboels who attacked four people in three incidents in 2008 and 2009, agreed to pay a $10,000 fine and to move the dogs out of Hudson County, authorities said.
On Thursday Kolb retrieved the dogs, Jumba and Imani, from the Liberty Humane Society facility in Jersey City, where they had been impounded since January when it was found that the dogs were being kept illegally in Jersey City.
This morning, Superior Court Judge Lisa Rose sentenced Kolb, who pleaded to contempt of court in August, to probation and community service. Rose suggested she serve the community service at a kennel or animal shelter.
The municipal court deal struck this week is similar to one Kolb agreed to in 2009. But she was charged with contempt in January when it was discovered that the dogs -- which weight a combined 260 pounds -- were still living with Kolb on Sheffield Street in Jersey City. That revelation came only after police responded to a report that Kolb's husband had been attacked by at least one of the dogs.
Kolb, 60, could have been sentenced to up to 18 months in prison, and the municipal court could have ruled that the dogs be put down under the state Vicious Dog Law.
As part of the dogs' agreement, Kolb agreed to never bring the dogs, or any other potentially dangers animal, to Hudson County, and furthermore, never house the dogs in an urban area. Kolb has paid $4,000 in restitution to Liberty Humane Society for the cost of caring for the dogs until yesterday.
“We were aware they were trying to seek alternatives to (being euthanized) and we expressed our concerns on behalf of the community given what happened last time,” said Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Leo Hernandez this morning after the sentencing.
When the dogs were found in Kolb's possession in January, Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said “It might be, unfortunately, a case where the dogs will have to be destroyed. God forbid one of those dogs should maul a child. We can't be in the position to allow that. We are not of a mind to say we will move the dogs to a rural area because we might be transferring the danger to someone else.”
But the decision of what was to become of the dogs was in the hands of municipal court officials.
It's been learned that Kolb and the dogs now live in Oak Ridge, an unincorporated area of West Milford, in Passaic County. West Milford Mayor Bettina Bieri did not return a call for comment.
When Kolb was asked if she wanted to speak before being sentenced, she said “I'm sorry for what I did.” She had no comment as she left the courtroom.

My opinion is that this is a ridiculous decision by the courts. She has broken the law twice with regards to the location of the dogs, not to mention the attacks, and now she gets to keep them. Didn't she lie as to their whereabouts before? 90 days jail time would have been more appropriate. This is not a juvenile who made an error in judgement. This is a grown adult who has put the public in harms way on multiple occasions. What is 100 hours of community service taking care of other animals going to teach her?

And if she moved to West Milford, why do I see her every morning getting on the PATH at Grove street? Yes, yes maybe she's commuting by car and parking near Grove, but I don't buy it.

The morning crowd is getting progressively worse. This morning they took up the entire sidewalk. I politely said "excuse me" to one of the offenders who proceeded not to move. Causing me to have to push straight through a conversation and a small hole. I want to support a local small business but they should also support their neighbors and keep the sidewalk clear. Funny, their tactic of stinking up the sidewalk with the chicken smell doesn't bother me. Just makes me want dinner.

While Harbor Casino is narrow, it is confined except for the smokers. I think the smoking section should be moved to Essex.

"Trial date is set for Susan Kolb, who authorities say reneged on deal to save 'vicious' dogs
Published: Monday, July 25, 2011, 12:10 PM Updated: Monday, July 25, 2011, 12:14 PM
By Michaelangelo Conte/The Jersey Journal

Susan Kolb faces contempt of court charges after her dogs, Jumba and Imani, were found in her home in February. Kolb had agreed to send the dogs to California in a plea deal.
A trial date was set this morning for the Jersey City dog owner charged with criminal contempt after failing to adhere to a court agreement to send her South African Boerboels -- Jumba and Imani -- away after the dogs were involved in several Downtown attacks.
The deadline for Susan Kolb, 60, of Sheffield Street, to accept a plea deal also came and went at today's hearing where Hudson County Superior Court Judge Kevin Callahan set Sept. 27 as her trial on the contempt charge.

Susan Kolb's dogs, Jumba and Imani.
She faces up to 18 months in prison if convicted, but probation is more likely.
The dogs, who weigh a combined 260 pounds, faced euthanization in 2009 when they were tried in Jersey City Municipal Court under the state Vicious Dog Law. But Kolb, 60, of Sheffield Street, saved them in a plea deal in which she agreed to send the two dangerous dogs to California.
The dogs' lives are in jeopardy again because they were found at her home in February, officials said. The alleged breach of the agreement made in municipal court resulted in Kolb being charged with criminal contempt in Hudson County Superior Court and the dogs again being charged as vicious.
Kolb's criminal prosecution in Superior Court and the Vicious Dog proceedings in municipal court are moving forward simultaneously. Kolb last appeared in the municipal court matter Friday. "

Can somebody explain why it takes so long to have a simple trial?

Court aims to euthanize dogs of Jersey City owner charged with criminal contempt
Published: Thursday, July 07, 2011, 9:45 AM Updated: Thursday, July 07, 2011, 6:08 PM

Reena Rose Sibayan/The Jersey Journal
Susan Kolb
The Jersey City owner of two dogs that have attacked several different people was told by a judge yesterday that adjudication of charges she faces in Superior Court and proceedings in municipal court aimed at having the dogs euthanized will proceed simultaneously.
Susan Kolb, 60, of Sheffield Street, was charged with criminal contempt after the dogs were found at her home in February in violation of an agreement she made in Jersey City Municipal Court in 2009 to send them away.
The promise to send the dogs away halted a court proceeding to try the dogs under the state’s Vicious Dog Law, which could have resulted in their euthanization. Now the dogs face possible euthanization again under the law and the first hearing in that matter is set for July 15 in Jersey City Municipal Court.
“Criminal court is not going to wait for a municipal court matter to be resolved,” Hudson County Superior Court Judge Kevin Callahan said at yesterday’s hearing. Having said that, the judge noted that the municipal court matter will likely be resolved before the criminal case is.
The next hearing before Callahan on the criminal charge is set for July 25 and that will be the cutoff date for Kolb to accept a plea deal. The judge said that if the criminal case moves forward, he expects a September trial.

We saw it on the menu that you posted before going to the restaurant. We were charged for the kids' juices.

Before calling, I wanted to see what others have experienced.

They only thing I can think that they meant is that for on-premise catering, kids under 5 are free and ages 5-9 are half price.
