The plan, or lack there of, is generating much opposition in the housing industry.”[The National Association of Realtors] supports the goals of simplification and structural improvements for the tax system, and individual tax rates should be as low as possible while still providing for a balanced fiscal policy,” Iona Harrison, Chair of NAR’s Federal Taxation Committee said in a statement during a Senate Finance Committee hearing. “We simply believe that to achieve these goals, Congress should commit first to doing no harm to the common interest that homeownership provides.”NAHB’s Howard, however, sees the plan as an opportunity to embrace creative alternatives and said that members of the tax code writing House of Representatives Ways and Means and Senate Finance committees have expressed interest in creating a homeownership credit.

NORTH BERGEN BRIEFS

first_imgUnion City commissioners backtrack on resolution opposing North Bergen power plantThe Union City Board of Commissioners have rescinded a resolution opposing the proposed $1.8 billion North Bergen natural gas plant, according to city spokeswoman Erin Knoedler.The commissioners originally passed the resolution on July 10, arguing the plant would produce mass greenhouse gas emissions and further complicate north Jersey’s power infrastructure.“We just wanted to give North Bergen the opportunity to properly vet the project fully, before other localities weigh in,” Knoedler said, regarding the turnabout, on Tuesday, July 24. “Also we don’t know what Gov. Phil Murphy will do.”Knoedler was likely referencing Murphy’s uncertainty surrounding the controversial proposal. In May, the governor didn’t take a strong stance when a local reporter asked for his take on the plant.He was also confused as to how Jersey would benefit, because all the energy produced by the plant would go to New York City. “I have to admit I always scratch my head when something is being done here that another state will benefit from,” he said. “Beyond that I don’t have an opinion.”North Bergen Liberty Generating, the company behind the proposal, argues that natural gas gives off fewer emissions than coal or oil. They also say that natural gas can create more electricity with smaller land use than renewable options, such as wind or solar power. North Bergen officials are in support, saying the plant would generate hundreds of union jobs and millions in tax revenue for the township.Local environmentalists, however, counter that the plant is a biohazard waiting to happen.“These [officials] will tell you that this is the best deal that we can get, and it’s not,” said Hackensack Riverkeeper Bill Sheehan at a press conference denouncing the plant in May. He was joined by other advocacy groups.But regardless of the opposition, the plan proposal continues to move forward. On June 26, the state DEP issued permits authorizing a gas turbine, two storm water outfall structures, and the installation of the cables under the Hudson River.The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers still needs to approve the plan. ×Local officials celebrated the 208th anniversary of Colombia’s independence with a flag raising at Town Hall July 20.

The state DOT is set to close traffic lanes on Route 495, starting Aug. 10, according to a press release.The headaches commence with the closure of the 31st Street ramp from JFK Boulevard to 495 westbound in North Bergen on the 10th. Traffic will be detoured onto Paterson Plank Road. On the 17th, one lane on 495 will be closed 24/7 in both directions.

The project’s first phase began in September of 2017 with local street improvements.The entire project is projected to finish around summer 2021. Motorists are advised to consider alternative routes during that time, such as the George Washington Bridge, Holland Tunnel, public transportation, or carpooling.

That’s how we always honor the game, by giving our best until that final buzzer.

World Cup: Ronaldo puts Paris agony behind him in 2002

first_imgWATCH: LeBron alley-oops slam dunk off backboard in NBA Finals Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina In the 1998 final in Paris, Ronaldo turned in a subdued performance against host France and Brazil lost 3-0. Brazil’s underperformance was blamed on the health of Ronaldo. To the shock of just about everyone, Brazil coach Mario Zagallo left his main striker out of his starting lineup, apparently for health reasons. Years later, Ronaldo said he had a seizure earlier in the day.Whatever happened that night, Ronaldo endured a series of injuries thereafter and was lucky to make the trip to Asia.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownArmed with a curious haircut involving a triangular wedge on the front of his head, Ronaldo was the main attraction.

Brazil won the match 2-0 with Ronaldo scoring both goals. The 21st World Cup begins on Thursday, June 14, 2018, when host Russia takes on Saudi Arabia. (AP Photo/Dusan Vranic, File)The path to glory can be a painful one. Ronaldo, one of Brazil’s greatest strikers, can attest to that.The big question at the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan centered on Ronaldo and whether he could exorcise the ghosts of four years earlier.ADVERTISEMENT China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls With eight goals during the 2002 World Cup, including his two precise finishes in the final that finished off Germany, Ronaldo scored more times in a tournament than anyone since West Germany forward Gerd Muller in 1970.His goals helped Brazil reclaim the crown it lost on that curious night at Stade de France. Brazil, led by coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, won an unprecedented fifth World Cup.Ronaldo was back in the Brazil team that went to Germany in 2006, a World Cup many expected it to win — not least because the striker was partnered up front by Rivaldo and Kaka. That didn’t quite pan out with France winning 1-0 in the quarterfinals.With another three goals in 2006, he became the World Cup’s all-time leading scorer with 15 — a record since overtaken by Germany striker Miroslav Klose.No matter, though, because Ronaldo had been well and truly redeemed.ADVERTISEMENT Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding View comments Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operationslast_img read more
