What an odd story. Mr. Foreman was appointed unanimously by the City Council so its pretty obvious he was a pretty uncontroversial choice. Al has now devoted two weeks worth of ink to trying to weave a bizarre conspiracy theory involving Donal Trump to "tie" Zimmer to an appointment made by the City Council which nobody (but Al) has even voiced an objection to. My favorite line (other than the odd attempt to connect a local Board appointment to the appointee's supposed national political views): "While Zimmer-aligned people claim otherwise, many believe it was tamping down this opposition vote that was the real reason behind taking control of the Housing Authority and removing Carmelo Garcia as its executive director" Besides Al and the voices in Al's head, I wonder who the "many people" are who believe that? Maybe in next week's column Al can explain further. He has 3 or 4 more columns to go on this topic before it starts to rival the legendary "Zimmer is resigning."

"The Zimmer administration tends to pick one of its own often over the best qualified for board positions,..." hey al, instead of just being a lightweight BSer and throwing out blanket accusations like this, how about you put your money where your mouth is and actually name some names? c'mon, smart guy, tell us who some of these "best qualified" people are who have been habitually passed over? if you're gonna make stuff up, you really should try to be slightly more believable that this, geez.

While Braddock Park is within the Township limits of North Bergen, North Bergen does not own the land. As a County park, all twelve municipalities within Hudson County are equally entitled to usethis park for its original purpose: open space, parks, and recreation. North Bergen has no right to usurp ANY County park land for its own use: nor does its Board of Education have that right. Our municipal leaders from each of the other eleven Hudson County municipalities need to lead the charge against Mayor Sacco's capricious and selfish designs and actions with regard to Braddock COUNTY Park. North Bergen Mayoral Candidate Larry Wainstein is to be commended for standing up to Mayor Sacco's land grab of part of our precious Braddock County Park. Please sign the petition if you havent already, and send a letter to N. J . Commissioner of Environmental Protection. Patrick R. Cullen, Jr. W.N.Y., NJ

HOBOKEN – The Hoboken Historical Museum will host numerous events in June, and plans to extend the “Frank Sinatra: The Man, the Voice and the Fans” exhibit – initially planned to close on July 3 – through the end of the year. The decision was done “due to unprecedented public interest” in the exhibition, a museum spokesperson said. On June 4, the museum will have the opening reception for the upper gallery art exhibit, “The Real Poop on Pigeons: Paintings by Kevin McCloskey” from 2 to 4 p.m. His work will remain on display through July 3 and the exhibit is free to the public. The Sinatra Singer Series will continue, featuring Jack McDade on June 4 at 4 p.m. Admission is a suggested entrance fee of $5. The 19th Annual Secret Garden Tour will be held on Sunday, June 5 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The rain date is June 12. “Tucked away behind Hoboken’s row homes and converted factory buildings is a world of lush gardens and cleverly designed courtyard spaces, as diverse as the city’s residents. Gardeners and non-gardeners alike are invited to indulge their curiosity and pick up urban gardening ideas [at the tour],” the museum said in a statement.
