Editors slowly return focus to voting, other state issues

On Saturday, the Bergen County Utilities Authority stationed a truck in the parking lot of Sears in Hackensack to shred residents' unwanted documents. The so-called Shred Event is held in each municipality.

It was as easy as driving up and dumping the papers into one of these two containers before they were transferred to the truck for shredding.


A small part of The Record's front page today is devoted to Governor Christie's veto of expanded voting, and a bill he signed to regulate group homes for people with dementia.

But Editor Martin Gottlieb continues to give most of Page 1 and two inside pages to the Friday night terrorist attacks in Paris (A-1, A-10 and A-11).

On voter reform, two Record reporters do their best to cast the issue as a strictly Democratic one, in keeping with the paper's editorial endorsement of Christie's mean-spirited veto (A-1).

The story on group homes for people with dementia conforms to the Woodland Park daily's policy of reporting only on institutionalized seniors (A-1).

Local news

In Local, there are three stories on schools, but nothing about Hackensack (L-1 and L-6).

Assignment Editors Deirdre Sykes ad Dan Sfroza appear to have ordered an embargo on any news about the Hackensack Board of Education.
