NOTE: New Rochelle citizens will gather at 10AM on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at New Rochelle City Hall to voice their outrage at the illegal and irresponsible garbage tax that will cost every New Rochelle home and apartment owner hundreds of dollars more in city taxes every year.
Shakespeare in his timeless tragedy Romeo and Juliet said, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet". In other words, regardless of what name you call something, it doesn't change what it is and it certainly doesn't change the way it smells. In the 2012 New Rochelle city budget, Mayor Bramson and the City Council hid a $223.00 tax for every single house and individual apartment in New Rochelle. They refer to this tax as a Garbage Fee but that doesn't change the way it smells or what it is…it stinks and it’s a tax.
In a matter of 1 hour between 1:50am - 3:10am The New Rochelle Fire Department was kept very busy Sunday morning.
1st- A house fire happened at 33 Franklin avenue which was quickly put out.
2- A call for a heavy smoke condition at 550 fifth ave on the 4th floor which turned out to be a pot on the stove.
3-A car accident with a possible car fire which turned out to be a accident but the passengers in the car left the scene it turned out later that the car hit two parked cars on Woodland Avenue.
4- A call came into the New Rochelle Fire department from Sound Shore Medical center that several people had come into the EMERGENCY ROOM with high levels of carbon monoxide that live at 77 Pelham road.The Fire department responded to the address Which is also home of CJ Cullens bar and and a few apartments above it to have high levels of CO in the air. The source was found and turned off and the building was vented by members of the fire department.
Four and counting were the number of cars broken into behind 838 Pelhamdale avenue in New Rochelle Saturday evening. Police were called to the parking lot by the super of the building after he saw car windows smashed in the lot.
New Rochelle police were trying to notify the car owners and find out what was missing from each car.One owner said that a watch was taken from there car.Police are searching the area for the suspects.
Today I woke up to both snow and a snow job. The Journal News featured an Op Ed piece of all things covering the heroic liberal view that it celebrate diversity, this makes the city great, and by implication, those who are members of other than the liberal wing of the democratic party are divisive, anti-establishment and, by reasonable extrapolation of the unbundling of code, we, thus, are racists, anti-feminists, homophobes, anti-semites, and God knows what else. The Author, Dr. Lipow, a practicing dentist I believe, must be sniffing some random nitrous oxide that has led to delusionary thinking.

Frontline Investigates The Hazards And Benefits Of Nuclear Energy (video after the link)
Has the world lost faith in nuclear power?
Almost a year after a devastating earthquake and tsunami crippled Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, there’s an emerging consensus in Japan and Germany that the hazards of nuclear energy overshadow its benefits. In the United States and other countries, the question remains unresolved.
In Nuclear Aftershocks, airing Tuesday, January 17, 2012, at 10 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings), FRONTLINE correspondent Miles O’Brien travels to three continents to explore the revived debate about the safety of nuclear power, the options for alternative energy sources, and questions about whether a disaster like the one at Fukushima could happen in the United States.
