Hackensack Discussion / Re: My favorite paper is not having a good day

Back to the sad, sorry show - and thank you to anyone reading this who manages to trudge through it all and understands why this all needs to be out there. Hopefully, at least one of the people reading this works at The Record, is in a position of authority and does not appreciate how the paper currently looks to anyone with a decent command of the language.

The Fives & Flubs carnage continues:

I've never seen (or heard) as many fish crows as I did today at Foschini. Knowing a tiny bit about them, I'll bet they never got a permit from the city.

It's probably a pre-Super Bowl party and since they're so annoying, I know what team they're fans of.

Crank it up to hear all the profane cheers.

My eyes glaze over just trying to take in all the stuff you post, and it's extremely repetitive. Seems like you have nothing better to do.

Well, DUH! OF COURSE it's repetitive when they keep making the same mistakes. And it will remain repetitive as long as they continue to do so.

I have nothing better to do? Boy, you really DON'T pay attention, do you.  I recently wrote that I spent an entire week shooting over a thousand pictures and 3 dozen videos of the Holman demolition and a second week editing every picture and condensing all the videos down to one. That's not a complaint - I'm happy to capture every bit of future history that appeals to me - but it's quite time-consuming.

And then there's the time spent responding to your inattentive, glazed-over eyeballs while mine roll skyward...............

I took this about 40 minutes ago.

Haven't seen one like this in a while.

Friday's Hackensack Chronicle finally carried a front-page story on the results of the special school election on Jan. 22, when voters overwhelmingly rejected a proposed $170 million school construction and renovation bond. The caption under a photo of poll workers said: "Hackensack held a referendum Tuesday...."  The story cited results "Tuesday night." In both cases, the reference was not to the previous Tuesday, Jan. 29, but to Jan. 22 -- 11 days before the paper hit driveways.

Sharing Page 1 with that story was the monumental news that a second brewery will open in Hackensack. Now, residents can drown their troubles in beer, including high property taxes aggravated by non-profits like Hackensack University Medical Center, Bergen County and Fairleigh Dickinson University.

The brewery story says the new one will open its doors "next month," then noted the grand opening will be Saturday, Feb. 2. The paper is dated Friday, Feb. 1.

So, there's no telling when the Chronicle, which reprints stories from The Record, will tell residents that another important school election is coming up in April, when the City Council hopes to seize control of the school board and finally get to review and cut its bloated budget, which accounts for 45% of each resident's property tax bill:
