HOBOKEN -- According to Hoboken Police Chief Ken Ferrante, a woman pushing a baby carriage was struck by a traffic light on the corner of Fourth and Washington streets in Hoboken on Tuesday morning. "A woman pushing a baby carriage across the intersection of Fourth and Washington streets was struck by a traffic light which fell during the construction in the area," said Ferrante. "The light came down and it appears to have struck her arm, so she was taken to the hospital for x-rays. There were no signs of major injury." Ferrante added that Sgt. William Montanez from the Office of Emergency Management shut down the site. Washington Street is currently undergoing a multimillion dollar renovation as part of the city council approved Washington Street Redesign in which the city's aging infrastructure will be replaced, roads repaved, and new traffic lights will be installed among other safety improvements. The fate of the woman or baby could have been worse. Four years ago, a baby girl in a stroller was killed after a pole fell on her near the waterfront in West New York. Her mother had been out for a stroll with her when a jitney bus slammed into the pole, causing it to fall. The mother was not injured. The tragedy led to the passage of "Angelie's Law" about jitney buses.

HOBOKEN – An opening reception will be held on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for the new hob’art gallery exhibit M&Ms. M&Ms is an exhibition of exciting new art by two hob’art artists: Meredeth Turshen and Miriam Untoria. Turshen creates oil paintings on paper that can be interpreted as summery landscapes or read as abstract works. Inspired by Paul Cézanne, the nineteenth century Post-Impressionist painter, Turshen layers delicate oil colors on graphite drawings, giving the work charm and depth. Miriam Untoria’s acrylic paintings and mixed media pieces are inspired by the human figure, which she examines in multiple settings and contexts. Untoria delves into realistic and fantastic explorations of figures, shapes and hues, creating exciting, provocative canvases. The exhibit opened Friday Sept. 22 at 720 Monroe St. and will run until Oct. 14. Gallery Hours are Thursday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment. Call (201) 319-1504.

Tiff can you identify a single issue on which Jen has actually led during her 6 years on the CC? Also you say she has been your partner in conducting financial reviews or transactions. Can you be more specific about each of your roles was in conducting these financial reviews? Do you expect to have an active role in the city's negotiations if Jen becomes mayor, helping to guide her using your greater expertise?
