Events & Calendar / Special Zoning Board Meeting
« on: August 24, 2004, 12:30:28 AM »
At the August 18th Zoning Board meeting, a special hearing was set for Tuesday, August 24, 2004 at 7:30 PM for the Zoning Board to begin deliberations on Anchorage Cove.

This is the largest application to be heard by the board in many years. With the exception of the Medical Center Parking Tower, this is also the most important case to be heard. If approved, several acres of severely blighted truckyards across from Cubby's Restaurant on South River Street will be developed for an upscale condo complex.

Hackensack History / Hackensack "Boat Jumpers" Club
« on: August 23, 2004, 11:08:11 AM »
I found this on ebay:

Hackensack Boat Jumpers Club:

"The organization - named in honor of Italians who illegally entered the country by jumping from ships - was started in 1957 by Phil Mancini and Pat DiZenzo and Al Degreco. This was a group of Italian American Lawyers, Judges, and businessmen who have shaped the city of Hackensack and Bergen County. My Uncle, Philip Mancinni, was a prominent member of this group and delighted in the fact that this was an exclusive, members only, Mens club. It’s “Our Thing” he used to call it. He saved these annual newpapers which contained hundreds of photos of many of Hackensack’s movers and shakers. These newspapers contain stories about the local judges, lawyers, and Italian businessmen."

Hackensack Discussion / Explosion on Main Street
« on: August 21, 2004, 11:43:10 AM »
11:30 am, Saturday, August 21, 2004.

There was an explosion behind Main Camera/Paradise Liquors near 70 Main Street, about one block from the Courthouse. 

So far, no injuries are reported.  I understand there is some damage to the rear of the building, including many broken windows. 

Details are sketchy.  If anyone has any information about why or how this happened, please email me and/or call the Hackensack Police Dept: 201-646-7777.

Thank you.

Hackensack Discussion / Paintball anyone?
« on: August 19, 2004, 09:47:01 PM »
My friend David asked me to post this...

Hello. I am a Sophomore at Hackensack High School. I had the idea of the school system to start up a paintball team. I have asked around and I have found out that there are a lot of people at the school that play this fun sport. A lot of sports statistics have also said that paintball as a sport has been found to have the lowest injury rate of most active sports. And yes that means lower than football and basketball and even golf. Here are some things that paintball players have said that they have learned when they play:

• Paintball teaches respect
• Paintball is a good source of stress relief and exercise
• Paintball teaches teamwork – learn to play with others as a group
• Paintball at the same time teaches you to work as an individual – many times we get stuck on our own and have to work through it.
• Paintball teaches decision making skills
• Paintball teaches sportsmanship
• Paintball teaches friendship

Here are some statistics that show how safe the sport of paintball really is.
The information I am going to show you was taken from this website http://www.f4og.com/safe.html

Is Paintball Safe
?

One of the most common "first questions" about paintball is "Is it safe?". Well, outside of an occasional bruise I have never been injured. I've seen 10-year-olds, teenage girls, and adults of all shapes, sizes, gender, and ages playing and having a wonderful time, and without injury. But, if you need some "numbers" to help in your decision to play paintball:
(Injury is defined as one which results in some degree of permanent impairment, or renders the injured person unable to effectively perform his regular duties or activities for at least one full day beyond the day of the injury.)

Driving a car 26.00 yearly injuries per 1000 participants

Hackensack Discussion / Re: Teterboro Airport

Coalition Press Release

Rothman Gets House Panel to Extend Ban on Boeing Business Jet at Teterboro  Airport 

Congressman's Measure Will Maintain Prohibition on Aircraft Weighing More  Than 100,000 Pounds  Washington, DC - Following through on his promise to maintain the federal  ban at Teterboro Airport on planes weighing over 100,000 pounds that he  first secured last year, Congressman Steve Rothman (D-Fair Lawn) yesterday  got the House Appropriations Committee, of which he is a member, to approve  the ban for the upcoming year. The measure, which needs to be extended each  year, bans the Boeing Business Jet and other large planes from operating at  Teterboro by prohibiting the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) from  raising the 37 year-old, 100,000 pound weight limit at the airport. Rothman  said that since the annual ban has already been enacted once that he expects  it to be renewed this year with little or no resistance.   

The bill passed by the House Appropriations Committee today includes  provisions upholding the ban on 100,000 pound aircraft at Teterboro Airport  that we worked so hard last year to enact," Rothman said. "This will keep  out the 737 Boeing Business Jet and other huge aircraft don't belong at  Teterboro Airport. We secured a federal ban last year, we are going to  secure that same federal ban this year, and we will make certain that the  ban stays in place to ensure that no oversized planes will ever be allowed  at Teterboro."   In July 2003, the FAA announced its intention to overturn the weight limit  at Teterboro Airport to allow larger jets to operate at the Northern New  Jersey facility.

As a lifelong resident of Bergen County who is committed to  fighting aircraft noise and stopping the expansion of Teterboro Airport,  Rothman vehemently opposed the proposal and wrote legislation to stop the  FAA from going forward with its plan. He got the measure passed through the  House and enlisted the help of U.S. Senators Jon Corzine (D-NJ) and Frank  Lautenberg (D-NJ) to get the measure approved in the Senate. The measure  became law in January of 2004. The bill that passed the House Appropriations  Committee today is identical to the measure signed into law in January and  would extend the ban for another full year. Senators Corzine and Lautenberg  are again helping to pass identical legislation in the Senate.  "Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK Airports are designed for large jets, not  Teterboro. We are going to continue fighting and taking every step necessary  to ensure that airline companies do not degrade the quality of life of  Northern New Jersey residents by bringing their large and loud jets into  Teterboro Airport," Rothman said.   The bill containing Rothman's provision will be considered by the full House  when Congress reconvenes in September. The provision is part of the  Transportation Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2005.
