Field of Heroes is just around the corner

Boy Scout Troop 25, which is led by Matt Klimansky, was recently joined by Dr. Patricia L. McGeehan, Commander Glen J. Flora, and Joe and Carol Kochanski at a promotional booth ahead of Bayonne’s Field of Heroes Ceremony.

U.S. Army Major Bryan Jones will be this year’s keynote speaker. This year’s honorees are Theodore Garelick, Jon Christopher Jacobson, Barry David Jones, and Cornelius Carroll, Jr.

Flags will be placed in the Field of Heroes, on the lawn of Bayonne High School.

Flags are $5, and can be purchased through the end of October using a form that can be filled out at bboed.org/domain/207. The funds will be donated to the Joyce-Herbert VFW Post 226 Veteran’s Museum.

Mayor Jimmy Davis and legislators meet with NJ Health Commissioner

Mayor Jimmy Davis, Senator Sandra Cunningham, and Assembly members Nicholas Chiaravalotti and Angela McKnight met with New Jersey Department of Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli to discuss what would happen if Bayonne Medical Center were to close.

During the meeting, a spokesperson for Davis stressed that losing an acute care hospital in Bayonne would deprive residents of access to healthcare services. In an emergency situation, he argued that the closure of Bayonne’s only full-service hospital could be the difference between life and death.

“Commissoiner Persichilli understands the urgency of this situation and several unique factors that make saving our hospital absolutely critical,” Davis said. “She is aware we will do everything in our power to keep Bayonne Medical Center open and that this fight is only just beginning.”

Bayonne PD has safety tips for Halloween

The Bayonne Police Department is prepared for Halloween celebrations, and issued an advisory with safety tips for the holiday. Uniformed officers will be assigned to directed patrols in high volume pedestrian and vehicular traffic areas, as well as the city’s annual Halloween Parade, which is scheduled to take place on Oct. 31 at 5:30 p.m., on Broadway between 2nd and 25th Streets.

The BPD urges trick or treaters to use flashlights, stick to familiar neighborhoods, stay on sidewalks, cross at corners with traffic signals, avoid entering roadways from between parked cars, avoid phone use while crossing the street, watch one’s step if wearing loose costumes, and have an adult inspect all candy prior to consumption.

Adults are urged to leave outdoor lights on so that stairs and walkways are visible, remove debris from stairs and walkways, keep pets away from the door when trick-or-treaters arrive, drive slowly, and hold young children’s hands while crossing the street.
