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

While the "5" infatuations aren't really errors, these are.

Once again, let's start with today's stellar edition of the paper - another actual page minus the newsprint. I hope my non-concise replacement print is readable after clicking on the pic.

The Record's "5" fetish continues unabated.

In an effort to keep the comment with the image (in some cases), I've taken out the unnecessary newsprint and replaced it with the comment. Be sure to click images to enlarge them - especially where I've commented within the image. Otherwise, the print may be too small to read.

Let's start with something from today's paper. This is the actual page - minus most of the newsprint - with one "5" story on top of another.

There's another "5-stack" at the end.

Al, you are correct
35
The article indicates in two places that the accident did not occur at a street crossing

1. It says "near" the intersection of Terrace Place, not "at" the intersection

2. and then concludes with the following paragraph about respecting the right of away and crossing the tracks only at designated locations:  "Snyder said the incident serves as a reminder to stay off the tracks and to respect the right-of-way. She said that tracks should only be crossed at designated locations, never go around closed gates and that trains can't stop quickly."

You may have more information than the article.  Or the article could be wrong. We welcome further information.

If I'm not mistaken, they entered the train's path at a controlled intersection.  How do you fence a controlled intersection apart from the automated gates that are there now?

This is at least the 4th pedestrian death along the NJ Transit line since these Hackensack community message boards were up and running. Folks, including myself, have repeatedly said that the city needs to install fencing comparable to what Ridgewood has in their downtown, to protect the residents, and keep people off of the tracks.  All that is needed is a simple chain link fence, 4 feet high, on both sides, from Temple Ave to Essex Street. There is no "right" to cross the tracks anywhere and everywhere. How many more people have to die before fencing is installed ?

Yep, there's County money out there for flood control projects on brooks and streams in Bergen County.  Here's the plan for the Teaneck Creek Conservancy, part of Overpeck Creek Park.  We need to get this Coles Brook Flood Commission created. https://www.tapinto.net/towns/hackensack/articles/bergen-county-to-receive-1-dot-4-million-for-state-g

Eric, I have been to Israel and every Arab country on its borders. When Israel was founded 850,000 Jews were immediately thrown out of Arab countries and fled to the new Jewish state. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem instructed Arabs to leave the area so they would not be in the way when the United Arab armies invaded and destroyed Israel. Did not work out that way. In discussions in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon it was clear that other Arabs detest Palestinians and only find them useful to attack the West. The whole situation could be ended if the Arab countries absorbed the Palestinians. They are Muslim brothers after all and of Arab stock. Do what Israel did and let them be absorbed by the Arab nation. It is not a big deal to accept a couple of million Palestinians into an Arab population of nearly 250,000,000 people. By the way,Israel has approximately 2,000,000 Arab citizens. They have full citizenship rights with Arab members of the Kenest and the Supreme Court. The only limit is that they may not join the armed forces. Can you imagine this occurring to Jews in an Arab state. I sincerely hope for peace in the region someday but the Arabs will have to recognize the legitimacy of the state of Israel. LarryE
