  • Bruce Ratner – The Daily Newarker
    home Sure some of it is just that good old fashioned brand of trash talk that only you only find in New Jersey But I particularly love the on message feel of Ms Cameron s statement it s wonderfully positive and polished without revealing any information that isn t meant to be public I hope they pay her well While light on inside information the title is pure speculation a Jersey Journal piece also published today would throw water on Ratner s column The Nets may stay in Jersey after all Ratner had hoped to move the team into the New York home for the 2009 2010 season but there is no way the arena will be ready In fact the entire Atlantic Yards project is progressing very slowly The Nets owner is facing a very tough credit market that is getting tighter every week A bleak economy will only continue to hurt the prospects of the Brooklyn development It is the perfect time for New Jersey interests to put on a full court press and have the NBA squad become the second tenant in Newark So stacking up against the arena in Brooklyn are local opposition tight credit markets and increasing construction costs and legal battles only add to the costs as deal maker Goldman Slacks can t find funding until Forest City Ratner can close the books on their court cases But according to this New York Sun piece moving to Newark might not be a slam dunk either Getting the Nets into Vanderbeek s building is simple on paper but it is also extremely complicated because of how revenues generated inside his building are distributed Ratner would need access to monies from luxury boxes club seats and in arena concession areas Vanderbeek would theoretically have to give up lucrative revenue streams from NBA games that he would normally keep from non Devils events in the building But Ratner could not financially survive without getting the lion s share of those revenues As I read it Ratner purchased the Nets for the purpose of getting leverage to begin a building project in Brooklyn the centerpiece of which would be the Barclay s Center arena Due to legal delays and increased costs the developer has scaled the project back to phases the first of which will be the arena planned to begin later this year and the last of which will be completed in 2018 Booker and Vanderbeek are reportedly hoping to find investors to bring the Nets to Newark which would be fantastic for the city for fans the team and its investors But in order to do that Ratner has to be selling The question really lies in whether the Atlantic Yards project can move forward without the Nets Nobody s going to build an arena without a team to play there and it s unclear what would be left of the project without the arena In his column Ratner highlights more than a dozen residential buildings

  • Opinion – The Daily Newarker
    three disgraced mayors and forty four years of corruption in City Hall Newark suffers from a poverty of hope An obstinate cynicism permeates this city to the degree that many man on the street interviews revealed Newarkers asking sympathetically why wouldn t Sharpe take care of his own We are only just beginning to see this dogged attitude chip away two years into what appears to be a substantive renaissance in the nation s third oldest city truly one of our great American stories But the Sharpe James sentence too short to account for the years of undue influence and too long to shake Newarkers perceptions that the establishment is trying to undermine the city s progress offers nothing but a sad reminder of our torrid history of corruption Author Ken Walker Posted on July 30 2008 Categories History Tags Courts History Opinion Sharpe James 1 Comment on No Tears for Sharpe The Undoing of Sharpe James The Undoing of Sharpe James My piece from April written the day after the Sharpe James conviction Sharpe James saw Newark through some tough times and was a tireless cheerleader for the city but government was never meant to be run this way Newark is undergoing a transformative change seeing a drastic drop in crime and renewed economic interest It s time to put away old ways of apologizing for cronyism evolve our political discussion away from racialism call for accountability from our leaders and stop thinking of potential partners in the city s success as outsiders James approach to governing the city created a culture of secrecy suspicion and fear that was more about him than the city It was that very cult of personality that led to his larger than life attitude and his ultimate undoing Perhaps the real legacy of Sharpe James will be a warning of what can happen if we don t demand more from our elected officials Author Ken Walker Posted on July 29 2008 Categories Uncategorized Tags Courts News Clips Opinion Sharpe James Leave a comment on The Undoing of Sharpe James Analysis with Joan Whitlow Analysis with Joan Whitlow Joanie provides an analysis of the sentencing for the Ledger Live video podcast Author Ken Walker Posted on July 29 2008 Categories Video Tags Courts Government News Clips Opinion Sharpe James Video Leave a comment on Analysis with Joan Whitlow 27 months Bloggers react to former Newark mayor Sharpe James sentencing 27 months Bloggers react to former Newark mayor Sharpe James sentencing Excellent round up by Kelly Heyboer of the blogger reaction to Sharpe James 27 month sentence for violation of public trust Author Ken Walker Posted on July 29 2008 Categories Uncategorized Tags Courts News Clips Opinion Sharpe James Leave a comment on 27 months Bloggers react to former Newark mayor Sharpe James sentencing Smearing a city isn t entertaining Smearing a city isn t entertaining Brief editorial on Esquire s July feature of Newark The most heinous crimes of Scott Raab s piece are

  • New Jersey Devils – The Daily Newarker
    Comment on Judge reopens Prudential Center after technical closure Judge reopens Prudential Center after technical closure A city inspector closes the Pru Center for the weekend over an expired certificate of occupancy The arena has operated under a temporary certificate since opening last October because the building lacks a smoke evacuation system Pru Center management has been compensating for the lack of the system which sucks the smoke out of the stairwells in the event of a fire by employing a dozen or so fire watchers during events A state judge reinstated a temporary certificate of occupancy that has allowed the Prudential Center to reopen after it was closed early Friday by a Newark construction code official The 18 000 seat home of the New Jersey Devils hockey team was ordered shuttered after the temporary certificate of occupancy expired at midnight The completion of a smoke evacuation system to help clear the stairwells in the event of a fire is the subject of the dispute It s safe It s just technicalities paperwork bureaucracy and miscommunication Devils co owner Michael Gilfillan said Friday afternoon as he was leaving negotiations between the city and the Devils management Author Ken Walker Posted on July 14 2008 Categories Prudential Center Tags New Jersey Devils News Clips Prudential Center Leave a comment on Judge reopens Prudential Center after technical closure Search for Search Recent Comments The Simpsons Monora on NorthJersey com writes AirTrai Chad Sykes on Forbes thinks vertical farming Drug trade turf disp on Brick City Cast Member Shot De Noted Newark Schools on Newark Launching Community Sch David on Forbes thinks vertical farming Archives Archives Select Month February 2016 3 December 2015 19 May 2015 3 April 2015 22 November 2013 1 October 2013 1 June 2013 14 May 2013 5 January
