Republican Chief Agrees to Change in Nomination Convention Date

Only in the Bergen County Republican Organization can the mere rescheduling of a party function avert another round of internecine warfare. But that's what happened Saturday. Chairman Bob Yudin relented to complaints from committee members and agreed to hold the party's nominating convention on March 15, a day later than originally scheduled. Freeholder Rob Hermansen of Mahwah, who is running for a second term, pressed for the change.

Homeless Man Charged in Security Officer Assault

HACKENSACK -- A resident of Bergen County's homeless shelter was charged with aggravated assault after repeatedly hitting and kicking a security officer early Saturday, police said. Kamani Porter, 20, lashed out at county Security Officer Michael Shaffer after staffers asked him to leave the center on South River Street about 4:15 a.m., police said. Porter had been causing a disturbance throughout the night at the Bergen County Housing, Health and Human Services Center, police said.

A Cut Above the Rest

Take a seat in Tony Joe D'Ambrosio's two-chair barbershop in South Hackensack on a Saturday and it feels like you're on the set of a 1970s TV sitcom. Every few minutes, another character walks through the door. Here comes Amos Liberti of Little Ferry, age 87, wearing a cloth fedora and clutching a bag from McDonald's. He brings D'Ambrosio lunch every Saturday.

Burglar in Fair Lawn Smashes Door of Convenience Store

FAIR LAWN -- Police are looking for a man who smashed the door of a store on Maple Avenue early Saturday and stole cartons of cigarettes. Police were called to the Fair Lawn Convenience Store at 24-18 Maple Ave. shortly after 5 a.m. when the burglar alarm activated. The front door had a hole in it and a rock was on the floor inside, said Lt. Derek Bastinck.

Cyclists Blast Nj Transit

NEW BRUNSWICK -- Bicycle riders from across the state complained Saturday that NJ Transit's policy about carrying bikes on trains leaves most of them stranded at the station. The policy -- allowing bikers to bring their wheels onto trains only at stations with high-level platforms -- is particularly distressing to bikers in Bergen and Passaic counties because most stations have low-level platforms, said Andrew Besold, one of 150 biking enthusiasts who participated in the New Jersey Bike and W...

Teen's Film Tackles Dating Abuse

While fans and critics alike were aghast last week when Rihanna released two songs with Chris Brown, the former boyfriend who had abused her, Jordan Coleman was not surprised. "It makes sense that they're back together," said Coleman, a budding filmmaker who sat in his Hackensack living room on Saturday in slippers and a blue fleece. "Because the one that loves the abuser usually goes back. Even though that is not the smartest or the safest thing to do -- they usually go back."

2 Men Shot On Paterson Street

PATERSON -- Two men were hospitalized with gunshot wounds to the stomach early Saturday after a clash outside a lounge on McBride Avenue, city police said. Officers who arrived in the area shortly after 3 a.m. found a 25- year-old Bloomfield man seated in a vehicle with a single gunshot to the abdomen, said Sgt. Patrick Murray.

Old Tappan Man Rescued From Railroad Tracks

CONGERS, N.Y. -- A 62-year-old Old Tappan resident escaped death as police pulled him from railroad tracks in a Rockland County hamlet just seconds before a train struck his car. Anthony Benvenuto was attempting to push his 2011 Audi off the tracks Friday about 8 p.m. after it became disabled. He lost consciousness and collapsed onto the tracks, said Clarkstown, N.Y., police Sgt. JoAnne Fratianni.

2 Charged, 2 Sought in Robbery, Assault of Couple in Passaic

PASSAIC -- Two men are in custody and police are searching for two more who assaulted and robbed a couple as they waited for a bus Saturday morning. Pedro Soriano, 27, of Passaic and Oscar Figueroa, 19, of the Bronx were charged in the incident, which took place about 2:45 a.m. in the area of Main Avenue and Monroe Street, Detective Sgt. Gabriel Guzman said.

Garfield Takes Steps to Mend Relations

GARFIELD -- Officials plan to put in place two new initiatives this week aimed at improving communication among government, police and the public, in the wake of a December police shooting that left a city teen dead. The City Council approved a community outreach program Tuesday that will make police officers available at least twice a month to meet with residents. At that same meeting, City Manager Thomas Duch said he was forming a pastoral council that he hopes will bring together the city'...

Local Issue: Vehicle Thefts

It's a crime of opportunity that can be avoided with the simple click of a button or turn of a key, police say. But all too often, owners of luxury vehicles in northwest Bergen County leave the doors unlocked, providing easy access for criminals looking for an easy score.

North Jersey Streets No Tire Should Have to Put Up With

If instead of bestowing Oscars tonight for top-notch performances, we gave awards for poorly performing roads, some readers believe the Palisades Interstate Parkway would surely win one of The Road Warrior's ninth annual Black Hole awards. "We shouldn't have to drive ... on an obstacle course," wailed River Vale's Mark Odenheimer after losing a tire on the PIP near the George Washington Bridge.
