HUDSON COUNTY -- What's in the print editions of the Reporter newspapers this weekend? Stories that affect your life, your tax bills, your participation in city government, your schools, and more.

The print editions hit your stoop this weekend, or come back to hudsonreporter.com on Sunday and scroll down to your town's section on this site.

In Jersey City, the school board voted against the contract for the new superintendent of schools. School is starting soon, so what happens next?

In Union City, the mayor has refused to say whether he and his commissioners are receiving benefits, which would apparently contradict a state policy saying elected part-time officials should not receive benefits in towns receiving discretionary aid. The state also was uncharacteristically tight-lipped about whether the city got an exemption. So what's going on?

In Hoboken, a critic of the mayor has filed a defamation suit against two bloggers and more than 10 internet commenters who he says have posted items against him and his family. The bloggers, in turn, say that they are the ones having their free speech threatened, and that the suit is an attempt to stifle them. What do you think? Find out more about the issue this weekend. (See this website, hudsonreporter.com, for prior coverage from Monday).

Also - A vote on a bond for street improvements was rejected by the council minority, and the animal shelter serving Hoboken has a big fight on its hands.

In North Bergen, an NFL player's wife was featured on "Say Yes to the Dress."

In West New York, mayoral hopeful Count Wiley responds to longtime rumors about his brief employment at a strip club (see prior breaking news item) and talks about his plan for an election to recall Mayor Felix Roque.

In many editions, we look back at the huge earthquake a year ago...that wasn't so huge.

Read these stories and more at hudsonreporter.com starting Sunday, or pick up the print editions in your neighborhoods.
