Withdraw or vote down these raises | Jersey Journal editorial

Today 6:30 AM (8-12-2021) By Jersey Journal Editorial

The Hudson County Board of Commissioners should vote down a resolution on today’s agenda that would give 3% raises to a number of top county officials, including County Executive Tom DeGise.

The proposed raises come just five months after the same group of officials received 2.5% pay hikes retroactive to last summer.

Built to withstand a bombing, massive MOTBY buildings to be imploded Sunday

Updated Aug 04, 2021; Posted Aug 03, 2021 By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

A couple of the final remnants of the historic Military Ocean Terminal at Bayonne will be imploded Sunday morning to make way for a sprawling United Parcel Service facility.

The demolition of two World War II-era structures — each six stories and 1.5 million square feet — completes three years of site work preparation of the 153-acre site on what is now called the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor. MOTBY or simple “the M.O.T.,” was in operation from 1942 to 1999, first as a Navy supply depot until 1967 and then as an Army base.

An obscure federal agency could decide the future of a Jersey City park

An obscure federal agency could decide the future of a Jersey City park

Updated 2:42 PM; Today 1:53 PM By Peter D’Auria | The Jersey Journal

For years, Jersey City has been embroiled in a battle over the Embankment, a line of six elevated blocks running through the city’s Historic Downtown.

City officials envision the former rail line becoming a linear walking park, the city’s answer to New York’s High Line. But railroad company Conrail, the onetime owner of the land, is trying to unload it to a private developer.

The outcome of that battle could be decided far from the overgrown rail line in the heart of Jersey City. Instead, the future of the city’s dream park could hinge on an upcoming ruling by the Surface Transportation Board — an obscure federal agency in Washington, D.C.

The Liberty State Park Bridge, decades in the planning, is finally ready to open to the public.

The $13 million project, which was funded in large part by a $10 million grant from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, will provide direct access to Liberty State Park from Downtown Jersey City and will also provide easier access for Bergen-Lafayette residents to the Downtown neighborhood.

Bayonne businessman going 15 rounds to complete tribute to the real-life ‘Rocky’

Updated 12:17 PM; Today 11:37 AM By Mark Rotundo | The Jersey Journal

In the words of the silver screen icon Rocky Balboa, Bruce Dillin “didn’t hear no bell yet.”

The Bayonne tire store owner isn’t fighting for a championship belt, but perhaps he can channel the fictional boxing champ as he attempts to complete his own underdog story — the creation of a lasting tribute to Chuck Wepner, the real-life “Rocky Balboa.”

Since the mid-1700s the Apple Tree House has held its ground in Jersey City, a reminder of the city’s Revolutionary War history, even if its own credentials are part fact and part fiction.

The 1779 meeting between the then-General George Washington and France’s Marquis de Lafayette to discuss war strategy at what is now 298 Academy St.

This is interesting data from the CDC. Sort of like poster 12345's but a different cut. You can look at each category in chart and table form or you can download to excel. Death wise this was a 50+ year old person disease 95% of the recorded deaths. (yikes) Glad the campaign was to get old..err..older people vaccinated first.

Why the spike in Jersey City fatal shootings this year? ‘They have to retaliate; they cannot not retaliate.’

Updated Jun 10, 8:58 AM; Posted Jun 09, 2:58 PM
By Joshua Rosario | The Jersey Journal

A new rash of fatal shootings in Jersey City are being attributed to an old problem — retaliation by neighborhood gangs.

There have been five gun deaths since May 3, and 10 this year in Jersey City, but this uptick in tragedy is different, a said source with close ties to gang activity.

“What happened in Jersey City is some big names got taken out,” the source said, referring to leaders of the loosely organized, violent crews being shot. “Since that retaliation, there has been a lot of back and forth.”

Jersey City taxpayers may not be digging deeper into their pockets this year, after all.

Mayor Steve Fulop Friday announced a proposed $620 million 2021 municipal budget that would cut taxes by $967 and offset the nearly $1,000 tax hike residents were facing in the school budget.

The City Council will vote to introduce the budget, which is $38 million less than the 2020 spending plan, at its June 16 meeting.
