Mayor Rich LaBarbiera’s Take On The Effect Of Hurricane Irene


I bumped into Mayor Rich LaBarbiera as he was leaving Hackensack Supply where Operation Goody bag was being hosted. I asked him about his views on Hurricane Irene and the Borough. His immediate response was “Paramus is the best!”.  He explained that while there was still some cleaning up to do, Paramus had worked hard to maintain all working areas. He praised the Paramus employees for their dedication to the town and the heroic efforts that they exerted. Very few areas were left unkempt and power had been restored almost everywhere.

Pulling Designs Out of the Past for Present-Day Walls



Q: We are slowly doing over a Greek Revival house. There's been a lot of serious rehab, so we're just getting to the "fun" part -- choosing colors and wallpapers. But it's not so much fun after all: I'm overwhelmed, especially when looking at all those books in the wallpaper shop! Could you help me narrow down my choices to designs that would be appropriate for a house that dates to l910? We are people who like formal, own antiques, but don't want fusty or busy.

Show Me the Fraud



Connie Schultz
Show me the fraud.  Show me the hordes of college students using fake IDs to cast votes for president. Show me the poor people boarding buses and trains or walking for miles so they can cast a vote in the wrong precinct using somebody else's name. Show me throngs of citizens spending entire days traveling from precinct to precinct to cast their votes over and over in the same election. Until Republicans can produce these felons, any attempt to restrict voters' rights by conjuring such mythical malefactors is partisanship of the ugliest and most dangerous kind.

Screw Up, Move Up, Cover Up: The Fast and Furious Edition



Michelle Malkin

There are now enough Operation Fast and Furious officials playing hide-and-seek in the Obama administration to fill a "rubber room."
That's the nickname for taxpayer-subsidized holding pens, such as the ones in the New York City public schools, where crooked employees are separated from the system and paid to do nothing. Perhaps the White House can stimulate a few construction jobs by adding an entire rubber room annex for "reassigned" scandal bureaucrats at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It's getting mighty crowded.

BoatUS: Irene Could Cause Up to $500 Million Damage to Recreational Boats


Upstate NY and New England Regions Hit Hardest
Coastal areas are usually the hardest hit when a hurricane strikes. However, early reports from Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) indicate that Hurricane Irene struck inland lake and river regions in New York and New England particularly hard, including the Hudson and Mohawk River Valleys, Lake George, NY, Lake Champlain, NY, and Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, as well as Cape Cod, MA. The nation’s largest boat owner’s group estimates the total damage to recreational boats from South Carolina to Maine could total up to $500 million (editor’s note: this early estimate applies to boats only; this figure does not include any boating infrastructure). The last hurricane to strike the US, Hurricane Ike (2008), was estimated to cause $200 million in damage to recreational boats.

Paramus In The Aftermath Of Irene - Rambling Around Town On Tuesday


Aftermath of Irene
Tuesday morning started with my usual Paramus Sunrise Rotary meeting at the IBEW on W. Century and Robin Roads. Except we couldn’t hold the meeting there because the Electrical School building had no power. Unbelievable, because they have a solar panel source on the roof. However when I asked DJ about it, he mentioned that they were not allowed to use it when the grid was turned off as in this situation. Paramus Sunrise Rotary moved to Doctors Express on Ridgewood Avenue to hold their meeting.

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.
