Routine cleanings are important, and an occasional steam clean is a great option if you want a fresh smelling carpet. Regular carpet cleaning can prevent your carpets from harming your health. They are a perfect breeding ground for allergens and bacteria, and they can expose you and your family to dangerous pollutants.

Woman stole phone in KFC, then gets punched in face by victim's boyfriend: police
By Michaelangelo Conte
The Jersey Journal

A Bayonne woman charged with stealing a woman's cellphone from the counter of a Jersey City KFC was slugged by the victim's boyfriend when she refused to return the phone, authorities said.

Adrienne Everett, 53, of Bayonne, was charged with theft and giving police false information about her identity following the incident Sunday, the criminal complaint says.

Rashad O. Mongare, 23, of Jersey City, was charged with simple assault for allegedly punching the woman and criminal mischief for shattering the KFC door when he was asked by workers to leave, the complaint says.

The complaint says Mongare told Everett that "there will be a problem if she did not return the phone," but she refused, and the pair began arguing, the criminal complaint says.

The manager asked them to leave, and on his way out, Mongare allegedly slammed the glass door, causing it to shatter. While outside, the argument escalated, and Mongare punched Everett in the face, the complaint says.

When police officers responded, Everett gave them false information about her identity, the complaint says.

The complaint says Everett did not know the woman whose phone was taken. It also says the incident was captured by KFC security video.

The Kitchen Step occupies the space that was once 30 Acres. The decor is less stark than its predecessor and more welcoming. The menu seems intended to serve a variety of clientele, with snacks, small plates and large plates.

Oysters were fresh and served with a classic mignonette and the excellent cheeses were sourced from Van Hook on Jersey Ave. Buttermilk baked chicken breast was moist and tasty and the pomegranate chili glazed pork chop was a treat. I didn't try the Moroccan braised chicken, but it sure looked good.

The Kitchen Step has a well chosen wine list with a mix of new and old world, a list of fifteen cocktails and a good mix of beer.

I'm looking forward to going back.

WeWork parted ways with Sean Black a week after the executive made disparaging remarks about Jersey City, one of WeWork’s newest markets.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Black was fired or whether he resigned, or whether his comments played a role in his departure. Black and WeWork declined to comment.
At a panel discussion last week, Black said: “If you look at Jersey City, it’s so far ahead relative to a lot of different product it has, but it doesn’t have life, it doesn’t have vibrancy, it’s not cool, it’s got no vibe.”  As it happens, WeWork plans to open a 101,000-square-foot co-working space in Kushner Companies’ Jersey City tower One Journal Square. It was also mulling opening a WeLive co-living space in the building.
Black’s remarks drew outrage from Jersey City residents. Local councilwoman Candice Osborne went on a tweetstorm Saturday, sending WeWork’s account images of Jersey City to showcase its vibrancy.
“Confusing… is WeWork no longer taking $59M tax abatement & 100,000SF in JSQ Jersey City?” one Twitter user commented on Thursday. “Sean Black and @wework can get out of Jersey City and stay out,” tweeted another.
Black, a former Olympic boxer, joined WeWork in March after less than a year as a leasing broker at Cushman & Wakefield.  At WeWork, he was an executive vice president tasked with overseeing the firm’s expansion in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Boston. Prior to Cushman, he spent six years as a leasing broker at JLL, working with tenants such as Foursquare and Business Insider.

Sneak Peek: The Hutton Celebrates {Soft Opening} This Sunday
The Hutton will open at 11am this Sunday, October 9th, with food service beginning at 4pm. It will be open for dinner service daily from 4pm until late (tentatively 11:30pm Mon-Wed & midnight Thurs-Sun). Doors will open at 3pm when drinks and snacks will be available. Brunch service is in the works, and will most likely begin in 2-3 weeks.

The Menu
Ian moved to the U.S. from Ireland when he was 19 years old, so there are definitely some pub classics on the menu, though he describes it as New-American gastropub fare. He also aims to have The Hutton pour "the best pint of Guinness in Jersey City." Chef Deuhana describes the menu: "Some items contain an Irish flavor, but it is not an Irish pub." The Hutton features a full bar with 12 beers on tap (6 craft) as well as an extensive wine list divided into "Old World" and "New World" options. They do plan to host food and wine pairings in the future. Chef Deuhana's favorite wine on the menu is the Vietti Moscato d'Asti (also featured on the dessert menu).

The city could avoid closing companies — brownouts, in firefighter parlance, which administrations have done for decades — by paying overtime to fully staff them, firefighters say. One told The Jersey Journal the city is playing "Russian roulette."

Or maybe FD brass needs to clamp down on allowing comp and sick leave that leads to understaffing.

and treat the fire department like any private business and manage the work force?  I think that's probably beyond the supervisors abilities.

It's part of their contract, so the brass has no say in it at all.

City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said the city budgets to staff all 26 fire companies daily — that represents 104 firefighters — but must close as many as four when there are numerous absences. Nearly 20 firefighters were out on sick leave or using comp time on Wednesday, and on Saturday, 39 were out, mostly using sick or comp time, Morrill said.
