Breaking NewsRobotic garbage pickup coming to Rutherford?

By Susan C. Moeller / Senior Reporter

RUTHERFORD (Nov. 18, 2010) — For Rutherford, 2010 could be remembered as the year of the garbage overhaul.

The borough council decided earlier in the year to reduce its residential garbage pickup and eliminate commercial service altogether. Now, a proposal to purchase trucks with robotic arms to pick up and dump specially designed cans is on the table for the Borough of Trees.

Top StoriesThe Guru of the Gratuity tells all

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

RUTHERFORD (Nov. 18, 2010) — Standing on line at the Starbucks inside of the Clifton Commons Barnes & Noble, author Steve Dublanica turns around and offers the evening’s first anecdote.

“Notice, no tip jar,” Dublanica says. “Do you know why there’s no tip jar? Because the people behind the counter are Barnes & Noble employees — they make what the people on the floor make, and the Barnes & Noble employees working the floor complained that why should the Starbucks workers get tips when they don’t? So they don’t.”

By Chris Neidenberg / Reporter

Top StoriesLyndhurst looks to help local restaurants expand

By Kyle Orlowicz / Reporter

LYNDHURST (Nov. 18, 2010) — At its Tuesday, Nov. 9 meeting, the Lyndhurst Board of Commissioners passed a measure that will allow township businesses to borrow public property. By purchasing a license from the municipality, a business owner can now use public property such as sidewalks, or even streets, to build temporary structures that support business means.

The ordinance appears to be most attractive to restaurants seeking additional dining space by way of temporary enclosures.

Top StoriesSmall birdseeds making giant strides in New Jersey’s environmental conservation

By Jennifer Vazquez / Reporter

(Nov. 18, 2010) — It may sound unbelievable that by purchasing a specific type of birdseed New Jersey’s environment could grow greener, but that’s exactly what experts are saying is true.

Consumers can now purchase sunflower birdseeds, thanks to a program run by the New Jersey Audubon Society. The bird food will not only serve as a scrumptious meal, but also benefit the Garden State’s agricultural community and environment.

Breaking NewsLyndhurst trustee shown the door

By Kyle Orlowicz / Reporter

LYNDHURST (Nov. 18, 2010) — After 20 years of service on the Lyndhurst Library Board of Trustees, Mayor Richard DiLascio showed Annie Rowe the door last month when he opted not to reappoint her to her long-held position.

Perhaps it was time for Rowe to move on; however, the longtime public servant and volunteer said she was not given the opportunity to step down gracefully. Instead, she was the last to find out of DiLascio’s decision to replace her and was not even told by the mayor himself.

Top StoriesNo Passport Required with Andrew Segedin: SCOTLAND

By Andrew Segedin / Reporter

KEARNY (Nov. 18, 2010) — Over the next six weeks we will travel throughout the area in search of some of the local spots most indicative of our communities’ cultural diversity. On our first stop, we explore the deep-seeded Scottish heritage of Kearny.

Our search begins Saturday morning, Nov. 13 in the back of a darkened banquet hall on the second floor of the Scots-American Athletic Club. Though its beloved Rangers Football Club, playing on a big-screen projector at the center of the hall, is beating fellow Scottish Premiere League team Aberdeen handedly, my first 15 minutes at the club are dead silent apart from a few angry shouts and anxious sighs from the supporters sitting at the tables.
