Paving Euclid Avenue with good intentions

Drivers would be foolhardy to go more than 20 mph over this frequently patched stretch of Euclid Avenue in Hackensack, above. The first crew I've seen plugging potholes in my neighborhood appeared this morning at Clinton Place and Linden Street, below, but the two men didn't do any repairs to that pockmarked block of Euclid, between Grand Avenue and Clarendon Place.

At last week's City Council meeting, City Manager Stephen Lo Iacono said crews were working six days a week to repair a rash of potholes left behind by winter.

Did they lose their maps of the city?

As of today, Euclid Avenue has barely been touched, but I did see repairs to Grand Avenue, in front of Fairmount School, ater its potholes rated a mention in The Record's Road Warrior column.

Dead wood

You can't say much about today's paper when just about the only must-read is a gee-whiz story about a golfer who was killed by a falling tree after he went looking for a lost ball on private property (A-1).

The story doesn't tell you much about the luckless golfer except his name, age and hometown.

But both the victim and homeowner have Korean names, and the golfer breathed his last in Alpine, one of the wealthiest communities in the United States.

Editor Marty Gottlieb leads today's paper with more endless blah, blah, blah about Rutgers University (A-1).

Today's thin Local news section has two Teaneck stories on L-1, but nothing from Hackensack, suggesting no resident left the house over the weekend.
