Lack of Strategic Planning for the Rebuild By Design Hudson River Project Spells Money Down the Drain

In June 2017 the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) sought comments from the public on their final Environmental Impact Statement for a preferred alternative to address storm surge and rainfall flooding near Hoboken. Adequate funds are not available to construct defenses against both sources of flooding and NJDEP phased the project to construct storm surge defenses immediately then address rainfall flooding as funds became available over about a 50-year period. Ken Rood, M.S., Senior Reviewer with Environmental Review, Inc. provided comments on July 17 suggesting that the phasing should address rainfall flooding first. Rainfall flooding occurs every five to ten years but storm surge flooding is infrequent and may not occur during the 50-year period needed to acquire funds for the second phase. Tom Price, Director of Environmental Review, Inc. said: “Apparently the Hudson River Project lacked strategic planning which should have identified rainfall flooding as the highest priority for allocation of resources.” For a full version of the comments provided by Environmental Review, Inc. click the link .

I have a story about the NY Waterway Ferry service stranding vacationers on their first day. Maybe this is common for your area, but not for us Houstonians. First ever vacation to New York and the Ferry treated us horribly. If interested, would love to tell the story to you and see if you want to follow up.

I would like the Hudson reporter to look into and write an article about the North Bergen Police Departments work schedule. Our police officers are working on an around the shift schedule. Their shifts constantly rotate from 8-4 to 4-12 to 12-8. This around the clock schedule has been abandoned by almost every police department in New Jersey due to the adverse effects it has on a person's health and well being. NBPD is putting our police at risk by not giving them a set schedule where their bodies can rest and have a normal sleep pattern. Many if not all of the officers that work this schedule have to take sleeping pills to be able to get rest and sometimes stay up for ore than 24 hours just to reset themselves. This is obviously dangerous for a police officer but also for the community of North Bergen. Please look into rhis matter further. It's time we do what is right for our boys in blue and our community.

Dear Sir:

My wife and I have been married for 31 years.

Before she met me she was married to an alcoholic who abused her physically. She found the courage

to escape his abuse.

Now, she has written a booklet titled: Saving my Sister. It is basically a “how to” manual on how to escape an abusive marriage.

The message of the booklet is clear: Find the strength to leave.

Thank you,

Wayne Adams
