Tripping Kosher visit Ottimo in Lakewood

PR Stunt or Empty Threat

Well the LSTA is reportedly going to cease operating transportation tomorrow because it does not have funding to operate.
Legally they are required to provide transportation to all mandated students. If there are no funds the BOE should declare bankruptcy. Agudah of NJ should go to court with it's team of lawyers for  the children of Lakewood
get an injunction to stop this continued insanity.
The LSTA recently got extra funding from lakewood township for public school courtesy busing. The townships first said they have no money and raised taxes significantly. Somehow there was a surplus and they allocated 2 million for the LSTA.
The LSTA also received a $1.5 million dollar loan from the LDC in August.
To suddenly issue a threat to cancel busing is suspicious and perhaps there's another motive for a savior to come by.

PR: Lakewood fights anti-Semitic image to become model for neighbors

Article via Lakewood Neighbors posted on Religion News Service
"Lakewood’s squabbles may never have come to a head had not the internet come along. “The zoning battles we see today aren’t new,” said Kotler. “With social media and the quick spread of news, we hear about it more widely.”
"Animosity toward Lakewood’s Jewish population began to manifest itself as far back as the 1980s, when plans to build the Zichron Schneur Synagogue met with a zoning challenge from its neighbors",
"continued cross-border mediation efforts that include Lakewood’s surrounding towns will help demystify the Orthodox Jewish community from its neighbors and even help form lasting bonds.
On the heels of the social media attention came a barrage of negative news coverage, which drowned out the stories the town’s leaders wanted to tell about Lakewood’s growth and prosperity.
LAKEWOOD, N.J. (RNS) — Like any rapidly expanding exurb, this town of 103,000 residents 1 1/2 hours south of Manhattan along the Jersey Shore has received its influx of outsiders with trepidation about the changing nature of their home turf. One thing that makes Lakewood different is that nearly half the town’s population boom over the past three decades is primarily the result of the arrival of Orthodox Jews, who have nearly doubled the town’s rolls just since 2000.
