We will also help all that we’re affected in rebuilding, the Lakewood community is known for chesed and compassion , and will show this time around also how a yiddishe heart works to help a fellow of ours in time of need, Chag kosher

  6. It might be a good idea to to put your bathroom fans on a separate switch. If the builders cared about the people they sold houses to instead of how much money they can save by cutting corners on construction they would use a better quality fan in the bathroom.

  7. Why do you have to bashmootz the builders? They provide the stuff that you want. Basic everything, no upgrades available. They are convinced that you wouldn’t want to pay an extra $100 to have better, stronger, quieter and safer bathroom fans. And they may be right!

  8. #21 i understand the cuts being made. but i dont think the tax payers know that buy cutting our budget we cannot replace damaged equipment. we do not have enough air packs on our fire trucks as per NFPA requirements ! cutting the fire budget is going to cost us lives . we need to stop and think.
