HUDSON COUNTY – News… entertainment… sports... business… political comment, and much more. In this weekend’s Hudson Reporter newspapers you’ll find the widest variety of reading of any periodical in Hudson County.
In Hoboken, it’s all politics all the time, this week over the new Western Edge redevelopment plan and the city budget. The city wants more public input on these matters, and on the NJ Transit plan for the rail yards, and you can be sure they’re going to get an earful after our stories hit the streets. We also have stories on Gov. Christie’s town meeting on charter schools, and a warm portrait of Giovanni D’Italia, who for 50 years has been practicing the nearly lost cobbler’s art.
Jersey City has its first openly gay council member. You’ll read the first of a series of stories about the controversy over tax abatements and taxes in general, plus the effort to find money in the city budget to save library branches that are scheduled to close, and all the information you need to enjoy the upcoming Hudson County History Fair.
A proposed housing development in North Bergen to be built next to a natural gas pipeline has neighbors to the project concerned, and in this paper and several others we examine the county’s Open Space Trust Fund’s finances and what local park projects are likely to be approved.
Union City is the place where Dvine Konektion, a local food bank, is helping out those in need, and West New York was recently the scene of the Latin Grammy parties. We’ll bring you reports on both.
And in Weehawken, an interesting and unusual new performance artist named Mykel is making a name for himself in entertainment circles, one artist among many who are making Weehawken a gathering place for creative types.
All this, plus Jim Hague’s sports reporting and the always controversial Al Sullivan on politics, in this weekend’s Hudson Reporter newspapers.
