While a few new stores plan to open in Lakewood  shoppers are hopefull the  prices would be affordable.
See it HERE
We, the people of Lakewood are desperate for a supermarket that will offer affordable prices in a convenient, nearby location. We don't need another fancy grocery store that will focus on selling expensive prepared foods and everyday groceries at convenience store prices.
KRM, we know good and well that you will be able to open an amazing supermarket as has been shown for many years in your current locations.
Please do us a favor (probably even a mitzvah) to the 99% of families that can't afford the current grocery pricing in Lakewood.

NO homebound bussing for private schools tomorrow

The BOE has informed all private schools that they will not provide busing or transportation for the way home from school tomorrow. It has to do with the shortened day schedule at the public schools. Expect grid lock as many will be carpooling at the same time. The town will shut down between 12 and 1 pm. This could have been avoidable but the incompetence and self interest of others has led to this. Some schools will have early dismissal at 10:45 with transportation. The Igud have filed a law suit but as of now there will not be any busing.

Lakewood has recently suffered many tragic losses of young people with untimely petiros. A 25 year old Kolell youngerman R"L a young kolell wife a one year old child, a Yeshiva bochur in his prime Lo aleinu all within the past month. We can not and do not know any cheshbonis from Shomayim hanistaros lahshem eloiykaynu, these events are beyond our control, understanding and comprehension. We listen to what the gedolim tell us, to do teshuva kol echad yefashfesh bemaasuv.
Its unfortunate though that there is an area where we do have the ability to control, yet its allowed to go on. The issue is the many living yesomim, heiliger innocent children that are made parent-less by our own doing.

Brooklyn Hatzolah: New Kids’ Radio Puts Deadly Block on Frequency

Does Lakewood also have this problem?
BROOKLYN - A new radio sold in toy stores for children goes beyond listening in to Hatzolah calls, and at times has actually caused potentially deadly interferences with the rescue outfit’s radio frequencies, a Hatzolah official charged.

Herzka Halpert, the coordinator of Hatzolah of Boro Park, told Hamodia on Tuesday that they are urging parents not to purchase any radio that has the ability to transmit on the Hatzolah frequency, and confiscate them if their children already have them.
“These kids have already blocked the communications on a very serious call,” Hertzka said.
