Gordon, Wagner & Eustace Call Tea Party Opponents-Repudiate Calls for Budget Cuts in Exchange for Irene Disaster Relief Aid


Senator Bob Gordon, Assemblywoman Connie Wagner and Mayor Tim Eustace today called upon their tea party opponents to denounce calls by Rep. Scott Garrett and other radicals to hold hurricane disaster relief hostage to draconian budget cuts. Garrett recently campaigned with Tea Party Republican candidate for State Senate John Driscoll. Earlier this week, Garrett stated that he would oppose disaster relief unless it was accompanied by massive spending cuts – a political calculation that would effectively paralyze relief efforts at a time when they are most needed.

PSE&G Hurricane Update


PSE&G is making substantial progress restoring power to customers affected by yesterday's hurricane, which is the worst in the company's history as measured by the number of customers without power.
• Electricity is back on for more than 563,000 customers, while work continues to restore about 147,000 customers statewide.  The company expects the majority of these customers to be restored within 24 to 48 hours, with the remaining customers within the next 4 to 6 days.
• While the sun is now shining, restoration efforts remain complex.  Hurricane Irene posed a direct hit to PSE&G's service territory with both wind and flooding.  In addition to downed trees and wires, flooding has created major restoration challenges, especially in counties like Bergen, Middlesex, Somerset and Union.

Irene Leaves Record Flooding, Severe Damage in Her Wake


Hurricane Irene

Although Irene is now history, she won't be forgotten in the minds of millions of Easterners who dealt with her wrath this past weekend.
At least 21 deaths have been attributed to Irene, which is now barreling across southeastern Canada as a post-tropical storm.
Wind gusts above 100 mph, rainfall totals north of a foot and battering waves that poured ashore along coastlines from Georgia to Maine has left millions, if not billions, of dollars in damage for residents and officials to clean up in the days to come.

PSE&G Hurricane Irene Update: Aug. 28, 2011


Approximately 392,000 PSE&G customers are without power at this time statewide. The number of outages continues to climb as flooding impacts the region. PSE&G has 6,000 employees supporting the restoration effort including 840 PSE&G linemen, 270 out-of-state linemen, an additional 50 crews that have now joined the effort from Ohio, and 540 tree contractors.  The crews are working around the clock. There are over 300,000 customers out and customers should be prepared for potentially lengthy outages of up to seven days.  Those outages due to flooding will take the longest to restore.
In addition to widespread electric outages, the heavy rain and storm surge may result in gas outages. Water could enter the utility's gas distribution system, as well as flood customers' basements and gas appliances. Customers are reminded to call PSE&G to report gas odors and to contact their local municipal officials for direction and assistance in pumping water out of their basements.

Paramus In The aftermath Of Irene


While waiting for a quote from Mayor Rich LaBarbiera, let me fill you in with the little that I know. Paramus has been flooded on parts of its major highways and areas of town are without power. PS&G has asked that they be called, that they are aware of the outages and will fix the problem as soon as possible. Of course they are prioritizing places that tend to emergency situations like hospitals, police and fire stations and some businesses. Cablevision has also issued the same request stating that they are monitoring the subscribers and will maintain their lines.

CKO Boxing
Passion is the driving force behind Loula Karapiperis, the youthful, pretty owner of CKO Paramus. Preparing to open in September in the location vacated by Standard Tile on Route 17 South, Loula has taken a kiosk, temporarily, at the Paramus Park Mall to pre-sell membership. With a charming personality, she seems to have made a smart merchandising move. While we were there, Paramus First Lady MaryAnn Labarbiera stopped by and proudly stated that she had signed up for membership. The Mayor’s wife stayed around for awhile to pose along with Loula by the kiosk.
