Mayor Issues Weather-Related Advisory, Reminds Residents About Service Contacts

February 5, 2014 at 1:18 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - With district schools and many businesses closed for the second time this week due to snow and ice, and another weather system on the way this weekend, Summit Mayor Ellen Dickson is asking residents to please be advised of the following:

•       Trash collection for Wednesday, 2/5 is rescheduled for Saturday 2/8

If your power/gas goes out the numbers for reporting outages are:

•       JCP&L 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877)
•       PSE&G 1-800-436-PSEG

Do not assume that your neighbor has called the outages in or that the power company knows of the outages.  The way to get your power restored is to make the call.

JCP&L is reporting an outage mostly in the Summit area and parts of New Providence affecting approximately 600 customers. Wires came down onto a snowplow, causing the driver to be trapped. JCP&L has crews on the scene and working with local police and fire departments to insure the safety of the driver and restore customers.

•       JCP&L is providing municipalities with a status update on outages and storm response at 11 AM.

Please do not call 911 if you do not have a life-threatening emergency.

•       The police non-emergency is number is 908-273-0051

Our public works division has been working almost around-the-clock, clearing our roads after what seems like non-stop, heavy snow over many days. Please follow these guidelines for snow removal:

•       Please keep cars parked off-streets
•       Shovel snow to the right of your driveway so plows can move it easily
•       Considering waiting to shovel the last 5 to 10 feet of your driveway until snowfall has ceased and your street has been plowed from curb to curb
•       Do not shovel or blow snow into streets
•       Clear fire hydrants to allow for emergency access

Please check http://cityofsummit.org regularly for updates and information.  The City also utilizes facebook and twitter and posts often.

Summit’s Unfortunate Message to Its Kindergarten Students

November 30, 2016

When we drop off our five-year old daughter at the public school where she currently attends kindergarten in Summit, New Jersey, she and her friends all appear quite similar. I see the same smiles, the same backpacks and the same level of excitement about learning. However, there is one difference among the students.

Beckerman’s Theory of Everything

Any armchair theoretical physicist knows that Stephen Hawking has pursued a lifelong quest to come up with a Theory of Everything. This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...

To Be a Better Investor, Be More Rational!

Many posit the theory of rational man, who coolly and carefully calculates his self-interest in a logical manner. We all fall somewhat short of that ideal.  In the financial markets, irrationality can be costly. What are some of the common foibles, and what can we do to minimize their damage to our portfolios?

Getting a Handle on Thanksgiving

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.

We typically don’t thank our body parts because they seldom leave us.  Most of us have not experienced unfortunate accidents or suffered the horrible consequences of war; tragic events  which might cause us to lose a limb.  

Most of us take our fingers and hands and elbows ...
