Bankruptcy Judge: IT'S A DEAL!

A hearing scheduled today in Newark Federal Bankruptcy Court successfully closed out the creditors committee settlement and sale objection allowing the City of Hoboken to move ahead in selling the Hoboken University Medical Center to Holdco of Bayonne.

After a late start, the sticky issue of the nurse's union JNESO and their filed objection was managed without the need for a hearing leading to the objection being withdrawn.

The bankruptcy judge will sign the official order on the settlement and sale leaving the NJ Health Department to issue a Certificate of Need before the sale of the hospital is completed.

THE HOBOKEN UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER IS HERE TO STAY

Talking Ed Note: Congratulations to Mayor Dawn Zimmer, HMHA Chairwoman Toni Tomarazzo, the entire HMHA, and all the employees of the HUMC who will keep their jobs and Holdco for their hard work in saving the hospital.

Before the end of the month the sale will be completed.

HOBOKEN TAXPAYERS:

YOU CAN KISS GOODBYE THE $52 MILLION BOND


THIS IS A HUGE VICTORY FOR ALL OF HOBOKEN!

Hospital hearing off to late start

A source close to the hearings on the settlement and hearing of the hospital informs MSV the planned early afternoon start has slipped with 3:00 seeing the hearing not yet underway.

The bankruptcy judge was attempting to broker a deal to what MSV suspects is the lone obstacle - JNESO the nurse's union.

JNESO appears to be attempting to block the entire settlement among 5,000 creditors on the basis of the union contract, not the settlement terms.

The bankruptcy judge who was looking to move forward will likely need to act.

(Do you think JNESO has been coordinating today with a certain councilwoman?)

Wonder who that might be?

Update: It's 5:40 pm, do you know where your hospital hearing is? Still talking.

The hope is a hearing will not be needed.

Steve Jobs 1955 - 2011




Much can be said of a man who's impact in the digital realm spanned several technology landscapes: computing, music player, phone, tablet and beyond. More can be said of a career that exceeded several in its versatility, impact and breadth.

We're not even going to try. Many of us have a love affair with Apple going back decades and grew up with it as "our" technology, our answer, our rebellion to the status quo.

Here's a link to a story by a team of original Apple people who retell stories of working with Steve Jobs and the vision they created and what he took to heights never seen. The basis for that story is about Steve's "Reality Distortion Field" and offers an insight to a man driven by a passion he carried as far as his illness allowed before it took his life.

We shall not see his kind again.
