Well but how did HN get that person’s name, address, and marital status? Was it a hacking of some kind? It sounds kind of CREEPY to me. If you follow nj.com HN is always harassing that person. His only crime is that he praises Mayor Fulop AND JERSEY CITY. It is kind of CREEPY that HN reply’s to his posts within a minute or two of posting. Also if that person doesn’t post on a topic HN will actually post saying he is waiting for the person to post. CREEPY indeed.

What is even CREEPIER is HN created an account here to reply to a post of his. My God now the “sad” guy is being stalked across the internet. It sounds like a Life Time Movie in the making….. “Stalked By A CREEP Online”

How do you make it stop? HN now says he wants to meet up with that person.

Jersey City cop raises cash for Fulop following promotion

Tax bills will be late in Jersey City, Hoboken

JERSEY CITY -- Third-quarter tax bills in Jersey City and Hoboken will be mailed late thanks to last-minute changes to school funding.

Neither city expects homeowners to pay what they owe until they get their tax bills, so don't worry about a late fee quite yet.

The August 1st one is always delayed because of the budget vote. Look at the dates of your last few years of August bills/payments see how they are delayed.

The most important piece of evidence in the obstruction case against Trump is actually never mentioned in Comey’s opening statement. That evidence is what occurred on May 9th. Comey had not acceded to the President’s request that he cease the investigation of Flynn and the connection to Russia, and he paid the price with his job. Later, Trump all but confessed that he had rid himself of this meddlesome director because of Russia. He told NBC’s Lester Holt, “When I decided to just do it”—to fire Comey—“I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story.’ “ The day after the firing, the President boasted to the visiting Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, saying, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”


If that is obstruction then Comey is facing 10 years in prison for not coming forward with what he knew sooner. The left and right talking heads are both reporting it.

Getting back to the reval inspection……

It is painless. The inspector was nice he came in with his iPad and as he was typing/clicking he gave a quick look into every room. He then asked to see the basement he looked around and said wow this is not a finished basement. (ok so I am a hoarder big deal…lol) He took one picture of the furnace area and said that was it. I asked about the outside measurement and he said he did it a few days ago. Oh yeah I had to sign the iPad.

A neighbor was not home at the time and got a yellow note on his door. The note gave a new date and time for the inspection and also had a contact number in case he wanted to change it. The appointment was for the evening nice if you work.

One good tip on the Yvonne’s video was that if you have any roof leaks or basement flooding when it rains let the inspector know.

I just thought of something he didn’t seem to inspect the condition of the wiring or pipes. Unless he took note of it while in the basement.

Hudson County proposes $538 million budget with tax increases for 6 towns

BY CAITLIN MOTA
The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY - Hudson County has proposed a $538 million budget that would raise taxes in six of its 12 municipalities this year.

The Hudson County Board of Freeholders is expected to make a final vote on the budget, which is $2 million less than it was in 2016, at the body's June 8 meeting.

Under the proposed budget, Jersey City residents would see the largest county tax increase, up roughly 9 percent from last year. West New York, Weehawken, and Hoboken could see about a 6 percent hike. East Newark would see about a 3 percent jump, and North Bergen would see just over a 1 percent increase.

While Jersey City hasn't seen a municipal tax increase in three years, it is the second year in a row the county's largest city will be hit hard by county tax hikes. In 2016, Jersey City saw a 10 percent increase.

Hoboken, too, saw a 4 percent hike 2016.

Re: Flooding in Jersey City

Speaking of drainage and Newark Bay. For the last month crews have been working at night laying down large cement drainage pipes across all lanes of rt 440 from Country Village into Newark Bay. They started near Danforth and put 4 or 5 down already one maybe every 300 yards going towards Bayonne. They are either just to drain the rt 440 roadway into Newark Bay or they are also tied into the CV sewage system.

They put a super pump in a few years ago that drains into Newark Bay.

During Sandy in Society Hill the water didn’t made it up to the condo’s along Newark Bay but what happened was that the water from Newark Bay back flowed into the big cement drainage pipes and caused the water to come out of all of the street sewers. That is what caused the flooding down there which destroyed a lot of vehicles (no condo's). Everyone was watching the back of their condos and to their surprise the water started to accumulate in the front/streets. I wonder if the new rt 440 pipes have some sort of back flow valve.

Man, woman dead in Jersey City murder-suicide


By Caitlin Mota | The Jersey Journal
on May 04, 2017 at 6:57 AM, updated May 04, 2017 at 7:13 AM

JERSEY CITY - Two people were fatally shot in an apparent murder-suicide early Thursday morning, officials said.

Authorities said a man and woman were found dead on Bright Street behind Hudson County Prep High School and across the street from the Booker T. Washington housing complex, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said.

Sources say a gun was found near the two bodies.

By 6 a.m., police had already left the scene leaving behind a few strands of crime scene tape. As residents awoke and employees arrived at the nearby high school, many were searching for answers about what happened.

One man who works at the school, who asked not to be identified, couldn't believe what happened just feet away from County Prep. Yesterday afternoon, he said, a man and woman were arguing nearby, though it may have just been a coincidence.

"Even during the day it's usually pretty quiet," he said.

Gene Rubino, Chief of Investigations with the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, did not comment if the murder-suicide was a domestic incident. The murder is the third in Jersey City this week.

Early Saturday morning, Amir Pleasant, 20, was shot in the chest on Dwight Street. He attempted to drive himself to Jersey City Medical Center, crashed his car outside the hospital, and was pronounced dead a short time later.

Later that morning, Albanelis Vidal De Larosa, 51, was found dead wrapped in blankets on Reservoir Avenue. Her ex-boyfriend, Miguel Angel Cabrera Romero, has been charged with her death.

Additional information was not immediately available.

Property owners around Journal Square/India Square have been complaining for many years starting under the Healy administration continuing into the Fulop administration.

There are many 2 family/2 apartment/2 story WOOD frame houses in the area that have 10 to 15 adults living in each of the 2 apartments and a few in the basements.

It is a disaster waiting to happen and when it does a slick lawyer is going to request the complaint logs from JC’s help desk and sue the city for inaction.

All the city needs to do is ask the people in the know…the mail men and women from the neighborhood. They will tell you how many different names are on the overseas letters. There are a few houses around the Square that have piles of mail throw into the corner of their porches. It just sits there until a windy day spreads it all over the hood.

You can’t go throw a bag of dog shit or trash(or old mail) on the slum/illegal rooming house property owners real address because all of the slum/rooming house owners are listed as living in their slum/illegal rooming houses on the JC online tax website. Everyone knows they don’t.

One more thing the rumor is the “landlords” are getting $500 per person per month as rent.

Fulop drops out of 2017 race endorses longtime foe Bill Matsikoudis….

In a stunning presser this morning on the steps of City Hall Mayor Steven Fulop announced he will not seek a second term as the Mayor of Jersey City. As incredible as that news was he continued with a much more troubling announcement. He is throwing his full support behind his longtime rival Bill Matsikoudis to insure that he becomes the next Mayor of Jersey City.

The short notice of the press release and the live announcement itself caught JC’s political world by surprise. The Jersey Journal’s Political Insider Agustin Torres and reporter Terrence McDonald were speechless for once. Terrence was fanatically trying to get in touch with Matsikoudis for a quote to put into his JJ column. Stating that he has to keep his record up of having a Matsikoudis quote (or picture) in every Jersey City political piece he does. Political Insider Agustin Torres is heart sick considering his piece on how Fulop is a shoe in for Mayor is in today’s Jersey Journal print edition. Bad timing or a nice parting shot directed towards Augie from Mayor Fulop? You decide. (I’ll go with the latter)

Details behind the bizarre announcement are forthcoming but a few insiders (a favorite source for the Jersey Journal) have said that it all stemmed from last week’s meeting between Mayor Fulop and Councilman Boggiano. Mayor Fulop is said to have asked old-time Jersey City resident and Ward C Councilman Boggiano if he should seek a second term. As any Ward C constituent will tell you Rich Boggiano is the go to person for advice current or future, that he is also known as the Zoltar of Jersey City. (he sees the future of a Journal Square with no building over 4 stories and construction workers using hammers with silencers attached) Well Mayor Fulop asked and oddly enough Boggiano pulled out a card from his desk and answered a flat out “NO!” Not wanting to advance his age 20 years ala Tom Hanks and knowing that the NYC FAO Schwarz is now closed (would have been fun to jump around that giant keyboard) Mayor Fulop accepted the answer and was off to prepare todays withdrawal announcement. After Fulop left Boggiano’s office a few faint laughs could be heard coming from the back room. It was none other than Councilman Yun with a few bundles of “NO!” cards next to a massive pile of ripped in two “YES!” cards. Seems he picked up the “NO!” cards cheap at a Montvale NJ yard sale. (a new No-bbie Brothers tune was playing in the back ground)

In related news there is a report of a suicidal man perched high on the Wittpenn Bridge. He is said to be holding a banner with the cryptic words of.. …”If the Healy clone becomes mayor Sound Machine will jump”. Observers who stopped their cars to take a look were intrigued by the message. (most cars were stopped in place for 10 minutes already because of the daily nightmare traffic jams in the area) A few yelled to the rather large person to stop and come down. Saying 4 years of Matsikoudis cannot in anyway be as bad as the 9 years of Healy even though Matsikoudis was Healy’s right-hand man during his tenure as Mayor. But some in the crowd yelled out for the man to jump. Calling out that the man was nothing more than a Fulop bootlicker toady boy and should end it all. One in the crowd kept yelling out “Just Do it Bruce… JUMP”. A very disturbing situation indeed. The JCPD said he was requesting a meeting or phone call from the Mayor himself. Sources say the Mayor and his wife are in a remote part of Pennsylvania competing in a Tough Mudder obstacle course and couldn’t (or didn't want to) be reached regarding the jumper. That could spell trouble for the guy on the bridge. (and the poor fish when he hits the water)

More to come…..



Here is the follow-up to today’s news item. (hey Jersey Journal people love to read follow-up stories... please take the hint)

Well for the few who wanted to see the big man jump I have some news for you. He almost did but as we all know almost only counts in horse shoes, hand grenades, and recent Presidential elections. As the jumper was getting the news from the JCPD that Mayor Fulop was not going to trek back to JC to talk him off of the bridge a commotion erupted over by the Mana Contemporary on Newark Avenue. Could it be some kind of new art installation? Yet another naked sculpture of The Donald or a President Joker billboard? By standers turned their attention away from the jumper and towards the noise coming from up the hill. The Circle beggars were even abandoning their cherished posts which they hold on to in all types of weather to see what was happening up Newark Avenue. Some held those spots for a decade. The guy in the cardboard tent even came out for a looksee.

The action seemed to being moving closer to the Wittpenn Bridge.. what could it be? Drivers were now stopping their cars and jumping out with their cell phones prepped for pictures. As the jumper looked to his left he could see in the distance a figure coming down the street. Could it be? After all of these years gone has he resurfaced to make some kind of statement on the day Mayor Fulop dropped out of the mayoral race. The crowd furthest from the bridge started to applaud as they followed the figure down to the bridge. The jumper thought he was hearing things but it was true (is this real life he said to himself) the words of that old Irish classic O Danny Boy were wafting in the air reaching his high perch.

Well the sweet lyrics were coming out of the mouth of ex Mayor Healy of all people. He was dining at his favorite Indian restaurant in Indian Square entertaining the lunchtime crowd with his singing. A side job he picked up to make a little extra money after losing to Mayor Fulop in 2013. An incoming patron announced that there was a jumper on the bridge holding a sign with the word Healy on it. He threw down his overly salted Masala Dosa (Healy never met a salt shaker he didn’t like) and headed outside while continuing his tune.

Strolling past the many Dosa Huts and Jewelry Stores he thought to himself how that stretch of Newark Avenue used to be lined with Butchers, a Bakery, two Hardware Stores, Candy Stores, Drug Stores, Soda Fountains, a Barber Shop, Hairdresser, Electronic Shops, Liquor Stores, Diner’s, Karp’s Department Store, a Bowling Alley, a Rag Shop, the “numbers” collecting old lady, and even a Magic Shop. But what hurt the most (which also hurts this writer… oh the Bar-manity ) is the missing old man taverns. There were maybe 5 or 6 from the Blvd down to Tonnele Avenue to accommodate the many area factory workers at quitting time. (or during lunchtime hmmm now you know why some (American) cans got dented) As he walked past the jewel of them all Joey Starr’s he shed a tear for it since it is now long gone and has been replaced by a shiny new condo building. Crying over spilled beer…YES! (we all are)

The ex-Mayor’s throaty rendition of O Danny Boy was oddly comforting to the jumpers ears. Was it enough to bring him down from the bridge? Has Healy found another side job as the Pied Piper of jumpers? Has a blanket of regret over taken SM for all of those anti-Healy posts during the 2013 election and beyond? Will SM actually vote for Matsikoudis now that Mayor Fulop dropped out of the race?

No... he decided to jump by the time I finished this piece.

PS – the fish are fine and Healy smiled when he heard the loud plop.
