On October 17, 2013, credit unions in 100 countries will celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) DayÂ® by joining together and celebrating their cooperative spirit.
Hudson Countyâ€™s own Liberty Savings Federal Credit Union is proud to take part in the initiative. Unlike many banks, Liberty Savings isnâ€™t in business to make a profit. Credit unions all over the world are a united front focused on you, the members, with an unwavering belief in the â€œpeople helping peopleâ€ philosophy upon which they were built.
In the U.S., they’re Â known as credit unions, but across the world, they go by many namesâ€¦co-operative societies, cooperativas, and caisses populaires to name a few.
This year, the cooperative spirit is coming to the Falkland Islands. Currently, one bank branch operates there, but the 2,300 workers find access to credit limited. Through the World Council of Credit Unions, staff from a U.S. credit union are assisting in the development of a credit union that can help the business that were refused bank financing.

Â If youâ€™re in Hoboken and an ice cream truck pulls up, donâ€™t be surprised if a furry canine tries to cut in line for a Peanut Butter Puppsicle. Thatâ€™s just one of the items sold at the Frosty Pooch ice cream truck where owners Angela and Raymond Meyers bring ice cream to the dogs.
Itâ€™s easy to spot the Frosty Pooch truck. It has a big dog face painted on the back and a line of pups wagging their tails while waiting their turns. When an owner makes a transaction, their dog can usually be seen with its front paws propped up on the counter waiting impatiently for their Frosty Pooch ice cream.
And what dog wouldnâ€™t love Frosty Poochâ€™s menu of ice cream flavors like Bacon and Peanut Butter? Thereâ€™s also Bacon Peanut Butter, Banana Peanut Butter and Apple Pumpkin, which happens to be good for doggie digestion. Angela makes her home-made doggie ice cream free of additives and uses only pure ingredients and lactose-free milk.
â€œIce cream has lactose which is a problem for dogs,â€ Angela says. â€œIf they have lactose, theyâ€™re gonna have the â€˜runsâ€™.
JERSEY CITY, NJ (April 8, 2013) â€“Coming this May, a new barbershop will bring back the nostalgia of a time long since passed. Vâ€™s Barbershop will be opening at 389 Washington Boulevard, its second location in Hudson County and 21st in the country. At Vâ€™s Barbershop, a haircut is a ritual, a nostalgic experience harkening back to a simpler day when men gathered at the corner barbershop to discuss everything from business, to sports and current events. Vâ€™s barbers provide both traditional, short haircuts, as well as contemporary and trendy styles. Every haircut will include a hot lather neck shave and will always end with a relaxing shoulder massage. As you get your hair cut, sit back in one of the authentic refurbished 1950â€™s-era Koken barber chairs while enjoying your favorite game on your own flat screen TV.
Â Mayor Mark A. Smith announced that Moodyâ€™s Investors Service has upgraded the City of Bayonneâ€™s bond rating from Baa1 with negative outlook to Baa1 with stable outlook.Â Smith said, â€œThis upgrade is very good news.Â It shows that Bayonne has made significant financial progress during my Administration.Â Moodyâ€™s has raised Bayonneâ€™s rating for the first time in more than five years. Our hard work and fiscal discipline are paying off. We have turned a corner and are moving in the right direction.â€
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Moodyâ€™s cited several factors in its decision to improve Bayonneâ€™s rating: 1) The agency recognized that the Bayonne Municipal Utilities Authorityâ€™s (MUA) joint venture with United Water and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) removed $120 million from the local debt burden. The transaction paid off all the MUAâ€™s debt and a portion of the debt of the Bayonne Local Redevelopment Agency. 2) Moodyâ€™s noted that the City no longer has any deferred charges.Â All charges deferred in the past have been paid off. 3) The City of Bayonne has a declining reliance on tax anticipation notes (TANS) to cover its cashflow needs.Â 4) Bayonne has a large tax base.Â 5) Bayonne has declining debt.Â 6) Bayonne has new revenues from payments in lieu of taxes (PILOTS) coming from newly developed properties.

Â When they opened Tachair Bookshoppe last July, Carol Valleau and her daughter Aleta Valleau took a gamble that local book lovers wanted something more than downloading a book to their Kindles and Nooks. The mother/daughter booksellers gambled on the idea that book lovers want a place to browse new books, thumb through old classics and maybe read a chapter or two while sipping a fresh brewed coffee. It seems their gamble paid off â€“ big time.
Â â€œTo have the ability to walk down the street and find a bookstore, itâ€™s nearly impossible,â€ Carol Valleau says between trips to the counter to help customers with their purchases. â€œWeâ€™re the only book store in Jersey City.â€
Â â€œWeâ€™re an independent bookstore to the â€˜Tâ€™,â€ Aleta Valleau says.
