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

One one "5" this time - probably because the paper was too busy doing other important stuff, like writing dopey "reacts" captions on every other sports picture and and featuring the same article on the Opinion page twice within a three-day period.

Like the swallows in Capistrano in March, Memorial Day weekend once again welcomes two of our favorite birds - whirlybirds and 0spreys.

I took the first picture (actually 3 pictures) yesterday and the second one today.

Keep an ear out for low-sounding Osprey engines over the weekend. I don't have to tell you what helicopters sound like.

Hackensack Discussion / Re: Hackensack University Medical Center

Hackensack University Medical Center apparently is subsidizing the city's performing arts center. That's my conclusion from seeing the hospital's name on the marquee: "Hackensack Meridian Health Theater" when I went there last weekend to see "Nunsense" (Englewood Hospital and Medical Center also has rebranded itself as Englewood Health).

I guess it would be a stretch if both hospitals called themselves "life" as in Hackensack Meridian Life or Englewood Life. So, it's good to see the hospital is contributing to the city beyond the $4 million a year in lieu of property taxes being paid to the city each year for 6 years.

I don't know for sure, but I'm skeptical of the $3-million-a-year CEO's claim that HUMC is an economic engine for Hackensack. I'm sure city services far outweigh what is spent in the city each day and don't know how many of the employees actually live in the city. To me, the hospital is a burden on the neighborhood, whose residential character has been destroyed by endless expansion, and so busy I hate to go there the few times a year I have to.

I posted photos and videos of the show at the performing arts center on Instagram and used the abbreviation HPAC, but later saw the acronym HACPAC on the TapIntoHackensack news site. I loved the show, but found legroom in the 2nd-floor auditorium to be limited.

I'm guessing this is coming from across the river again. It's a little less ominous this time AND it's got "music"!
