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

1. On the front page of today's Local section of the newspaper's print edition, there's an article about a proposed new road through FDU-Teaneck. You can see that it is to be continued on page 3L.

When you get to 3L, there's no story anywhere about an FDU road on that page or anywhere else. There is a continuation from 1L of a story about flags, but there's no story about flags on 1L, so we have the beginning of one story and the end of another with the missing pieces nowhere to be found..................except if you read the online edition instead of print.

There on 3L is the continuation of the FDU road story, right where the end of the flags story is in the print edition. The online edition has NO story anywhere in that section about flags.


2,3. On to the daily problem child - the Sports section, where we find a supposed quote from Jets head coach Todd Bowles and one from the Yankees Gary Sanchez.

The first problem should be obvious. In the second one, did someone actually see "your" coming out of Gary's mouth instead of the correct "you're"? I don't think so.

On Saturday, I saw 3 shredder trucks almost surrounding the Hanson Realty building, but the only bucket of paper I saw came out of the CBHC building (the yellow one on the left), where I still saw office material being removed yesterday, so I doubt that any sort of remediation has started there yet...........and there've been no trucks seen that would be related to that.

This notice was posted on the Hanson Realty front door last Thursday, but I didn't get a chance to see what it said until today.

So, as of tomorrow, it appears that all 3 buildings will be good to go................literally.

There are other errors in the sports section today, but there's one unforgivable MAJOR flub that overshadows everything else.

ADDING INSULT TO INJURY:

Attention City Council, HHS football coach Wimberly, players, parents, and all residents:

How does this stupidity happen?

Hey - we can write National Enquirer-type headlines too. BTW - the clever rustlers pixelated their own faces.

1. If that second "single" was in parentheses, it might work if the story was about marital statuses. Unfortunately............

2.  "view son"? Misplaced space.

3. The problem with this is that it's a quote...........did the guy actually say "collect" instead of "collected"? I'm betting he didn't.

It would be nice if the Chamber of Commerce or whoever could get local restaurants to offer pre show or post show dining packages to concert attendees to show what can happen when new life comes to a downtown area.
Nobody would lose on a deal like that.

This is only for any major fans of the Yankees, Citi Field or Major League Baseball in general: I've put the fully-expanded version - 98 pictures and stories (including one I made up) - of this game on my photoblog, https://IAintJustMusic.bobleafe.com/

I may never get to shoot them this close again, so I might as well do it up now.

1. Space limitations require that newspapers sometimes have to split words and continue them on the next line and the proper way to do that is to make the split between syllables.

It's quite sloppy-looking (and somewhat ignorant) when papers just split words anywhere they feel like it, but this goes beyond that. What would be the reason for splitting the unsplittable word, "ALL"?

As the second sentence shows, there's enough room in the top line to include the ridiculously-split word AND the next word.
