Mrasg1, are you trying to say you saw ZZ Top? Or are you just being a big bore? Maybe we are all tools for being impressed with celebrity, but whatever -- get off this thread if you're bored by our discussion.

Mamarama, you are so beautiful. You deserve a network show.

Julie Stiles shot an indy film at Seton Hall Law School in Nwk, so maybe she considers herself an honorary Jersey Girl? I doubt it, though, because she was born in NYC.

Also, her first performance role was with New York's La MaMa Theatre (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Stiles), which I argue evidences a connection (however tenuous) to the Stiles and Mararama sightings.

Seriously, Jayne, work on that network show.

Good point, disportus. Phil and his wife really are good people. And so are the Skinners and the Schapiros.

In fact, the one thing that bothered me about the show is how much guff the Schapiros got from the host! Matt and Marni are a nice, cute couple and I hope they didn't take the loss personally. They're good neighbors too.

Bill 643,

Judging from the content and timing of your three posts, it would appear that you did nothing during this beautiful Memorial Day weekend except watch HGTV and write hateful flaming comments on JCList. Did you happen to read that Hamilton Park opened? If you had ventured out of your lonely, dark apartment you might not be in such a foul mood Bill.

(And if you absolutely refuse to go outside or do anything to improve your attitude, can you please run spell check before posting? You twice wrote "ashame," which is not a word. A introductory course to English grammar at the NYU Annex would do you some good).

A little about television: it's meant to entertain. As a layman, Phil Rivo did a tremendous job. You yourself watched the entire episode. That is the hallmark of successful reality TV - it keeps the viewers glued through all the ads. The fact that the show annoyed you is a function of the phenomenon that is reality TV. Phil Rivo was funny as hell, which is why out of the six contestants, he was in damned near every scene.

In the truest sense, his job as a contestant was to be entertaining, and he hit the mark. If you saw him on Fox NY's "Shame on You" report regarding the free cars and gas that Council members get, you would have been impressed with how well he did as a community activist. He's funny when he's supposed to be, serious when that's called for, and a hard worker and a lover of Jersey City through it all. I say he should be Council President!

Yes, they receive tax-exempt status. The Legislature must change that - not JC gov't. Not sure if you are pro- or anti- helping the poor, but several downtown churches that are shells of their former selves have a lot of that going on inside.

I also saw them at Target and they were aggressive but not violent.

How about the guys down the street from the NY-side 9th Street PATH station who quizzically sell gansta rap CDs? Who buys CDs anymore?

FBI DROPPED IN

Saw Healy day before sweep
Saturday, September 05, 2009
By AMY SARA CLARKJOURNAL STAFF WRITER

The FBI paid a visit to Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy one day before the July 23 corruption sweep that netted 44 people, the mayor's spokeswoman confirmed yesterday.

Although spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill confirmed the visit with the mayor at his City Hall office, she said the mayor refused to disclose what was discussed, citing the ongoing investigation.

Morrill was responding to an article on the Jersey City Reporter's Web site, which first reported the visit.

Michael Drewniak, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, refused to comment.

Among the 44 people arrested in the FBI sting were 23 from Hudson County, including seven Jersey City employees.

Many of the officials are charged with accepting bribes from FBI informant Solomon Dwek, who was pretending to be a developer looking for help with zoning approvals.

Healy has not been charged with any crimes, but he has acknowledged meeting with Dwek at least twice, in rendezvous that included Edward Cheatam, a Hudson County affirmative action officer, political operative Jack Shaw, and Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini, who served as his campaign treasurer.

The federal complaints allege that Shaw - who died July 28 - Beldini and Cheatam "arranged for others" to provide checks to the campaign of "JC Official 4" with cash provided by the Dwek. Healy has acknowledged he's "JC Official 4," but says he did nothing wrong.

And hey, while we're on the subject of Healy, can we talk about the fact that he was raided the day before the FBI made the 44 Solomon Dwek arrests, and somehow Healy himself avoided being picked up?

I suppose the question has to be asked. Why would Leona Beldini be motivated, under the circumstances to continue serving in a position with no pay or benefits?

JackieCruise, what exactly is your understanding of what "service" is required from Leona? Its merely a title. I am not even aware that the Dpty Mayors perform weddings anymore. She is continuing to "serve" because it's a cushy gig, and she figures, "why give it up? let them take it away from me."

Have any definative conclusions about Jack Shaw's death been reach yet. It seems any tests should have been completed by now. Is this an open case under investigation?

He was heavily in debt, bereft of a "heavy" to work behind the scenes for, under arrest, and facing the prospect of ratting on his friends. Approximately how much uncertainty is there in your mind as to how he died?

Yeah, liss54 & daphne, it sounds like a good idea. But keep in mind that part of Janam's success was that the tiny girl who owned/ran Janam was so sweet. Also, small businesses are very risky. But if you open, I'll go.

Hey mfadam, this is an expensive, well-connected corporate firm, and their pricing is NOT competitive. The best we can hope for as taxpayers is that they will perform an audit that's worth the $. It's virtually impossible that neither the firm or the attorney doing the audit did not give $ to Healy or the HCDO. The actual guy the city is hiring (Thomas P. Scrivo) represents other towns, too. www.mdmc-law.com/attorney_detail.asp?EmpId=317. www.mdmlaw.com/Ethics_Scrivo.pdf As somebody else said above, if the audit does not include all JC's autonomous bodies and authorities, it's window dressing at best.

I know because I went to court and paid a bogus garbage fine (neighbors dumping their trash in one of my buildings recycle pales) but the court had no record of the paid fine and issued a warrant for my arrest even though I was in an llc.

I agree that the absentee landlords need to be held accountable too, but until the section 8 system/rent control system is seriously revamped, the vicious cycle will continue.

rent control is a different issue.

can't we ask absentee apartment building owners to make sure they don't turn into crackhouses?

Somebody ask Jon Stewart if the teenagers pulled the fire alarm in the movie theatre as they are want to do every three days.

I've seen Patrice O'Neil downtown several times, but (a) he's from JC and (b) many people reading this post may likely ask, "who the ___ is Patrice O'Neil ??"

Good point, donttakemyrocks. The double dipping (holding two or more jobs) is a big part of the corruption. in my opinion this Fulop guy is the only one who can really pose any challenge to the establishment. The others are well meaning but don't have "legs." You need money to win elections, and from what I've heard, Fulop's money is clean.

Does anyone know him personally? Is he a good guy?

My only complaint is that sometimes they are too busy - they are filling an important unmet need for bikes and bike parts downtown. Kudos to these "Animal" BMX dudes for setting up shop down here.
