Mile Square Early Learning Center
Hudson Bike Share Sponsored by CarePoint, Suez North America, Bijou Properties, Zipcar, Investors Bank & Keller Williams City Life Realty
Early membership discount available starting today; System to Launch in September
The City of Hoboken, in partnership with Bike and Roll, nextbike, E3Think, and P3 Global Management, and, is announcing the pre-sale for Hudson Bike Share, a Hoboken-based regional bike share program, in advance of the planned launch in September. Beginning today, residents and visitors can immediately register for annual memberships by visiting www.hudsonbikeshare.com or through the nextbike mobile application. Annual memberships purchased before the launch will cost just $75 – a $20 discount off of the regular $95 annual fee.
The first phase of the program will feature 250 bicycles with next-generation “smart-bike” technology and 29 official stations in Hoboken. Users may ride anywhere within or outside of Hoboken during their rental. In addition to the 29 official stations within Hoboken, this first-of-its-kind program will permit riders to connect to regional transportation options and make longer visits to neighboring areas by allowing them to return and rent bikes from several locations outside of Hoboken without added fees. Thanks to on-board GPS technology and an integrated cable lock, riders will not be charged a fee for returning bikes to any legal bicycle rack within designated ‘Regional No Fee Zones’ outside of Hoboken. Bicycles that are not returned to official stations will be charged a $10 fee within Hoboken and $25 fee outside of Hoboken, with the exception of designated Regional No Fee Zones.
The City of Hoboken will host a special double feature Movies Under the Stars at Mama Johnson Field, located at 4th Street and Jackson Street. Admission is free.
“Movies Under the Stars is a community-favorite event, and we’re glad to expand it and for the first time to provide a special double feature at Mama Johnson Field,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.
On Tuesday, August 25, 2015, there will be a double feature starting with the Lego Movie (PG, 100 mins) at sundown (approximately 7:30pm) followed by Guardians of the Galaxy (PG-13, 121 mins). The event opens at 7:00pm. Bring a blanket or low-back chair.
“I’m very appreciative of Mayor Zimmer, Director Pellegrini and Geri Fallo for accommodating my request to bring Movies Under the Stars to the 4th Ward,” said Councilman Tim Occhipinti. “I know my neighbors and I are excited for this event and we hope to incorporate more movies at Mama Johnson Field next summer.”

HFA is committed to helping children and youth succeed and ensuring every young person is ready to learn. Children living at or below the poverty line will find it difficult to get enough to eat this summer as their parents struggle to keep the lights on and make rent – they simply cannot afford to buy backpacks and school supplies.
Our donations will go to children in need from the following organizations: In Jesus Names Charities, Division of Youth Family Services (DYFS) and York Street Project.
What’s Needed: NEW Backpacks (Unisex backpacks are preferred if possible), lunch boxes, pencils, pens, pink erasers, two-pocket folders, binders, loose-leaf paper (wide rule), notebooks (both spiral & composition), scientific calculators, protractors, crayons, colored pencils, markers, calculators, rulers, pencil sharpeners with cover, pencil cases, glue sticks, scissors and index cards. Flash drives are also requested for the older children.

THE OYSTER WAR
In 1976, an estuary of stunning beauty was protected by the Point Reyes Wilderness Act, threatening to shut down a small, family-run oyster farm established in the 1930s. The owner vowed to take his fight to the Supreme Court.
MST Dance Academy specializes in pre-professional-level training in Ballet, Modern Dance and Theater Dance, and is staffed by working professional dancers. Emphasis is placed on alignment, technique and purity of form.
Classes are based on a semester system. Parents may attend the final class of the Fall and Winter semesters to view their child’s progress. There will be a Spring performance to demonstrate the students’ abilities and give them a chance to dance in front of an audience.
All students are placed according to ability. Dancers may advance to pointe shoes at age 12 or older, when the appropriate musculature and bony supports are generally developed.
Girls should be attired in dark-colored leotards, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes, with hair neatly back in a bun or tight braid. Boys should wear white T-shirts and black tights or shorts, with black ballet shoes and neat hair.
Dance Education Director Sarah Weber Gallo holds an MFA in Dance Performance Studies from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts. She is a longtime member of the Metropolitan Opera Ballet, has performed a diversity of repertoire nationally and internationally, and was a Radio City Rockette.

HOBOKEN SEEKS VOLUNTEERS TO GROW COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM
The City of Hoboken invites members of the community to join its 100-strong and growing Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). State-certified trainers will hold a series of free CERT classes this fall for up to 60 participants. Those interested in joining CERT can submit an online application at: http://hoboken.
“Our Community Emergency Response Team is made up of residents who care deeply about their neighbors and community,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Joining CERT is a great way to get involved and to help make your community more resilient.”
Hoboken’s CERT volunteers have been recognized as “Community Preparedness Heroes” by FEMA, and CERT Coordinator Lou Casciano was honored as a Community Preparedness and Resilience “Champion of Change” by the White House.
The City graduated its fifth CERT class in October 2014, bringing the total number of trained volunteers to 106 members.
CERT training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people that they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train members of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. CERT members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area. CERT members also participate in assisting with large scale community events, staffing emergency shelters, and various other ways.
If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community’s professional response, CERT members can assist others by applying the basic response and organizational skills that they learned during training. These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. CERT skills also apply to daily emergencies.
Participation in CERT requires the successful completion of a training course on a range of subject matter specific to emergency response and disaster relief.
All classes will be held at the Multi Service Center, 124 Grand Street starting at 9:30am sharp and concluding at 4:00pm. There will be a 1 hour lunch break between modules. The training schedule is as follows:
10/24/2015 – Disaster preparedness & Fire safety
10/25/2015 – Disaster medical operations 1 & Disaster medical operations 2
11/1/2015 – Light search and rescue operations & CERT organization
11/7/2015 – Disaster psychology & Terrorism in CERT
Participants must attend every module of training as well as participate in the final emergency simulation exercise in order to receive certification as a fully trained CERT Team member.
Upon completion of the training, each participant will be issued a CERT Member Emergency Kit
