Things are slowing down a little from the frenzied building that was going on before. I even see it in this blog. There were multiple entries a day, now I go away for a few weeks, come back, and only a few new entries. Not to despair friends. JC is still an affordable alternative to the city. Its coming. Two more years my friends, the economy sucks I know, banks are not lending I know, but two more years and we're back at it again. Hang in there. I know these things.
Good comment Tbal, as far a the homeless in the Grove. But beleive me, we still have plenty in the Square. And as far as the police, I dont know where they are. They may have a stong presence in the Grove, but I dont see them in the Square, outside of the path itself. The only presence I have seen "away" from the path was on one occasion where there was some gang thing going on that the Jersey Journal had reported so heavily that they could not ignor it. They had two officers walking down Baldwin. The only time I ever saw a food patrole south of SIP. Then there was the wolf pack thing where the woman got her head bashed in by some punks, and the Chief denied it was a wolf pack. That anoys the hell out of me. I have no problem with the police, they are our friends, but I really wish they would show some more presence in the Square, and not just the 'pretty' part. I just had my second break in a week ago and its getting old.
On a more positive note, the governmental center is coming along well near Baldwin and Mill Rd. The new park is moving along well.
Hang in there all.
