Holding Big Oil accountable; Protect Liberty State Park; Jersey City council got housing ordinance right | Letters

Momentum rising against Big Oil

Ed Potosnak is right (“More NJ cities should follow Hoboken’s lead, sue Big Oil”). ExxonMobil and other Big Oil companies deserve to be held accountable for misleading the public for decades about the climate change damages they knew their products would cause.

However, he understated the growing nationwide level of support for such efforts. To date, more than 20 municipalities across the country have filed lawsuits against Exxon and other fossil fuel companies over their climate change deception. These include not just city and county leaders but also the attorneys general of many of New Jersey’s coastal neighbor states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

While Mr. Potosnak is right that other New Jersey communities should join Hoboken in this fight, so, too, should Gov. Murphy and Attorney General Grewal take action on behalf of all New Jerseyeans to make the companies that earned billions

Accessible Custom Furniture And Decor Is The Next Big Interior Design Trend

2020 has been a year of collective realization about the importance of our living spaces and interior design. Not only are we all spending more time at home, but most of us are renovating, redesigning, and refreshing our spaces to fit the new normal. Because the pandemic has limited our choices in many ways, the appeal of custom, made-to-order furniture and decor has increased significantly. 

While major players like Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Restoration Hardware have offered made to order furniture for years, buying truly customized and bespoke pieces used to require using an interior designer or knowing the right place to have something commissioned. This also meant visiting a brick and mortar location.  

But now, smaller, direct to consumer and online-only retailers are leading the way in this category for both industry and regular consumers

20 big homebuyer turnoffs that make houses unsellable

If today’s seller’s market for homes and this year’s incredibly low mortgage rates have you thinking it’s time to sell your house, take a good look around your property.

It probably needs some work to make it sell-ready. What you do or don’t do to get the place ready for the market will determine whether potential buyers come flocking or go fleeing.

Many sellers never realize that their houses have icky issues that need attention, which is why they get few showings and even fewer offers.

Here are 20 of the biggest homebuyer turnoffs and how to avoid them.

1. The place looks hideous from the street

Your house had better have some curb appeal.

You’ve driven by the front of your house so many times that you barely take notice. And unfortunately, once you decide to sell, most

Big changes coming to Laramie airport | News

A visit to Laramie Regional Airport now can make you feel a little like Rip Van Winkle. Forced inactivity during this pandemic has meant that we have not been paying much attention to airline travel.

But in Laramie, that downturn coincided with a perfect opportunity for a major change — airport terminal replacement.

Overcrowded terminalAnyone who has flown out of Laramie in the past knows that a terminal expansion was sorely needed. That was evident even before the days of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inspections of all passengers and baggage.

When I first flew out of Laramie in 1966 for a job-related trip to a meeting in Seattle, the terminal was a tiny little place with a few chairs. Every passenger brought their whole family with them for a splendid send-off, it seemed, so seats were scarce. But you only needed to get to the airport maybe 10

The post in question shows two photos of her younger brother, Axel, on the verge of tears, holding what appears to be his learning module for the school year 2020-2021.

The caption reads “*gets yelled at by me while being taught* ‘Don’t yell at me, ate. I’m sorry. I’m really having a hard time understanding (the lesson).’”

a big, family-friendly SUV with diesel-rivalling fuel economy

Happily, it gets better at speed; in fact, the CR-V proved to be a very effective way of undertaking long journeys, so as a cruiser it makes a little more sense. There was one disappointing feature here, though, too, in the adaptive cruise control. 

This system has a feature which spots when cars are drifting into your lane; sounds sensible, but in reality it’s rather too sensitive. As a result, you find the car braking hard for no apparent reason, in the mistaken belief the car to your left is moving into your lane. Of course, drivers behind you start to wonder why you’re brake testing them, much to your embarrassment.

On one journey, this happened so often I disengaged the cruise control; no great hardship, but then what’s the point in paying for a top-spec model with adaptive cruise control if it doesn’t work very well?

Money on my

Eagles’ Jordan Mailata gets his big shot … and he’s not shaking in his boots

During the 2017 offseason, Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland was going to spend a few days playing golf with high school friends and enjoying something rare — time off in the NFL.

But then, of course, Stoutland’s phone rang. Eagles GM Howie Roseman wanted him to work out a 6-foot-8, 350-pound Australian rugby player who had piqued the interest of the scouting department. Stoutland canceled the golf getaway and headed to Florida to see what this curiosity, Jordan Mailata, could do on a football field.

Stoutland — the guy who sold the Eagles on Lane Johnson after watching him in a workout — didn’t see a great talent, but he liked Mailata’s size, quick footwork and ability to change direction. Of course, there were many questions about a player who had
