Hoboken Breaking News Corner

4/28/2008:

Since it’s next to impossible for me to be awake 24 hours a day, I’ve created a new category today.

Breaking News Corner

This section will be reserved EXCLUSIVELY for “citizen reported” breaking news events, and can be utilized to discuss any important stories or incidents BEFORE (or IF) they get published as an entry on Hoboken411. Please comment in this section only for those types of incidents.

If the incident warrants it’s own story on 411, you can continue the conversation there (once I put it up). I’ll do my best to add the appropriate link(s) in the comment section here.

Do’s and Dont’s

hoboken-breaking-news-corner.gifUse this entry only for breaking news items such as:

  • Fires
  • Severe auto accidents (with injuries, or multiple cars, etc. – not minor fender benders)
  • Flooding
  • Building Collapses
  • Injury/Death to prominent Hoboken figure (politician, celebrity, etc.)
  • Water Main breaks
  • Crimes (muggings, riots/big fights & brawls, shootings, etc.)

Do NOT use this section for:

  • Political purposes (to quote another source, or mention some kind of press release or statement from a local pol)
  • Rants and Raves (there are sections already for that)
  • Anything not considered breaking news (stuff like “I almost got hit by a car” – you can put that in the rant section)

That’s it! Hopefully, there won’t be too many severe or disastrous items clogging up this category, but we all know it’s inevitable.

Have a great week everyone!

Health alert… mumps outbreak. Watch for symptoms and don’t touch the handles on those Big Bell cans.

First warm weekend of spring definitely warrants some street and parks patrol.

Too many preventable drowning deaths over the years along the waterfront. This time of year the water in the Hudson is around 45 degrees. Even the strongest of swimmers will suffer hypothermia quickly. Perhaps Hoboken and Hudson County should look to install some Ring Buoys with rope along the waterfront perimeter. They are cheap and effective.

My condolences to the families of those that drowned.
