N.J. to provide $2.75 million

Nutley Sun [NJ], by Hasime Kukaj

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 4/5/2014 10:06:57 PM

New Jersey will provide Nutley $2.75 million in transitional aid, intended to replace taxes lost to Roche´s Clifton/Nutley campus closure, Nutley Revenue and Finance Commissioner Thomas Evans announced. "All the people were frantic," Evans said Wednesday. "I´ve been working for many months to address the [the loss of Roche tax revenue], and we were successful in receiving transitional aid." (Snip) "The state [and] governor understand that Hoffmann La-Roche has been there 100 years [and] that they´ve been paying a lot of tax dollars," DiVincenzo said. "We´re trying to get the best use out of [the land], which will not

Comments:
Having killed the goose that laid the golden egg, Trenton flips Nutley a little consolation prize. Property owners are in process of demolishing the campus so as to lower the property tax burden. Portrait of the business climate in the "business-friendly" Northeast.

Decades of over taxing and over regulation is delivering its inevitable result. As they say, you can suppress the sound but what about the stink?

Ahhh, now that they have successfully run off the evil big-pharma corp and its excess profits, going on the dole is a happy solution.

Or the liberals are moving to business friendly states so they can repeat voting for business-killing liberal politicians. We have 2 from NJ moving into our Texas neighborhood this month - going to nullify a few conservative votes, complain about how hot it is here in the summer, but keep their traps shut about how they are not paying ANY income tax here in Texas.

Franklin Lakes considering a change to
logo, but Ramapoughs say not so fast
The Record [Hackensack, NJ], by Emily Masters    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 7/15/2014 2:39:01 PM     Post Reply
The Washington Redskins have stuck with their name and logo for years, despite ardent and escalating protests by Native American organizations and their supporters. Even the U.S. Patent Office weighed in this year, calling the logo “disparaging.” Now, Franklin Lakes is thinking about changing its own longstanding depiction of a Native American on its letterhead, business cards, vehicles and website. But this time, it’s the Ram­a­pough Lenape Nation — the closest tribe to the borough — that is objecting. “There is a vast difference between using a dignified image that represents the native people and using a logo that shows a caricature

Wickliffe, OH - A 34-year old Cleveland woman was arrested Saturday after cops say she refused to check out of her hotel room. Police were called to the Quality Inn, 28600 Euclid, because management needed help getting a couple of guests to leave.

A New Jersey man who murdered a police officer in cold blood over the weekend astonishingly is being hailed as a hero by members of the community who have erected a make-shift shrine - complete with candles and empty liquor bottles - in his honor. Lawrence Campbell was fatally shot by police after he gunned down 23-year-old rookie Jersey City police Officer Melvin Santiago outside of a Walgreen´s pharmacy early Sunday morning. (Snip) In addition to the empty liquor bottles, the memorial for 27-year-old ex-con Campbell includes t-shirts with messages from friends and members of the community

Fort Sill, Okla. - A Republican congresswoman from Tennessee said the U.S. should cut aid to countries that are home to thousands of children who have crossed the border illegally to pay for the cost of caring for them. Rep. Marsha Blackburn made the comments Saturday after touring a temporary shelter at the Fort Sill Army Post near Lawton where more than 1,100 of the children are housed. Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma also toured the facility. Blackburn said Central American countries that the child immigrants are fleeing should be forced to bear the cost of paying for them

The World Health Organisation has announced for the first time that all men who have sex with men should take antiretroviral drugs, in a bid to try and contain the growing rates of HIV in gay communities around the world. In a report published on Friday, the WHO made “strong recommendations” that all men who have sex with men should seriously consider taking antiretroviral medicine “as an additional method of preventing the HIV infection from spreading”, even if they haven’t got the virus themselves.

New York — A banner aiming to change people´s minds about what swastikas stand for has stirred outrage after it flew over beaches in New York City and on Long Island. Some beachgoers were appalled and officials fielded complaints after a plane toted the banner Saturday. The banner featured swastikas, a peace sign, a Star of David and a "pro-swastika" message. It was arranged by the International Raelian Movement. The group tries annually to remind people that before Adolf Hitler´s rise, the swastika was an ancient symbol of well-being to Hindus and Buddhists, among others. The Raelians — who believe

A Jersey City cop was killed in a cold-blooded ambush outside a Walgreens Pharmacy early Sunday by a violent nutjob who had boasted, “I’m going to be famous,” officials said. Officer Melvin Santiago, less than a year on the job, and his partner rolled up to Walgreens to answer a robbery call at 4:09 a.m. when the gunman came out of nowhere and blasted Santiago in the head as he opened the passenger-side door. Minutes earlier, shooter Lawrence Campbell, 27, stabbed the store security guard in the arm and took his gun, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said. Campbell then apologized to everyone in the store and said, “Watch the news later,

Middle-class families should stop buying large fridges in order to save energy and tackle climate change, a government-commissioned report has suggested. Families could save up to £36 a year on their electricity bills by replacing large fridge-freezers or televisions with smaller appliances, according to a study published by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. The report found that the average family fridge had grown in volume by two fifths since 1985, amid a fashion for large American-style appliances, while the average television had grown by more than seven inches since 2004. It warned that the trend undermined

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Berkeley must give some of their pot free of charge to low-income patients under an ordinance approved by the City Council. At least 2% of the marijuana each dispensary doles out needs to be given free to dispensary members who have “very low” incomes and are Berkeley residents, the ordinance, approved Tuesday, says. The ordinance also stipulates that free pot must be the same quality, on average, as the pot that other members buy. According to NBC Bay Area, the City Council has defined very low income as $32,000 a year for one person

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many

Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
