direct tv loses CBS

Looks like direct tv can't come to terms with CBS. Have not had CBS for the past 3 days. I think this might be the last straw for Direct tv. Not saying it is or isn't their fault-CBS is probably being greedy but between what we pay and now losing a major channel, it might be time to think about cable-though I've heard horror stories about them too. I'm hoping they come to an agreement before football season and the new September shows, but who knows.

Wheel alignment BMW

Hey all,

I need to get my wife’s wheels aligned on her ‘13 BMW 3 series. I hear varying opinions on whether local shops can perform the work. Ive called a few places that say for a “proper” alignment I need to take it to the dealer. Apparently they put weighted bags in the car to simulate passengers sitting in the car. First time I’ve heard of this. Another local shop told me “no problem, bring it in.” Any opinions? Thanks in advance.

Road to the Sandbar

What's up with the road leading to the Sandbar.The road is terrible for bikes and for walking, very dangerous. The Sandbar is one of Hackettstown's treasures. Pave the road and make it safe for crying out loud.

Purchasing a house

Hello everyone and I’d like to thank anyone who chimes in in advance. I’m looking into purchasing a home I’ve pretty much narrowed it down to Mt. Olive area and came across a decent house in long valley now. I’ve researched all the threads I can find but most of them are old. I’m commuting to Bergen county area mom-fri. I cant really move to much further east because prices and taxes really sky rocket, or I would. Anyone commute from long valley? And how is it? I’m on the road by 5-5:30 a.m.. I also read long valley is... More
