Red Bank Rethinks Ban on Tattoo Studios

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |RED BANK – With a major annual convention in nearby Asbury Park and Bayshore-area shops in abundance, tattoo artistry has gone mainstream.In Red Bank, tattoo shops have been prohibited in the central business district. But now elected borough officials want to re-ink the rules.At a Sept. 12 meeting, the governing body introduced an ordinance amending Red Bank’s Land Development Regulations, effectively deleting the prohibition of tattoo parlors in all primary commercial zones.Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna said he is confident the ordinance will be adopted upon second reading at the public hearing Oct. 13, which would allow artists to set up shop in the borough’s Neighborhood Business District (NB), Central Commercial Districts 1 and 2, and Business Residential Districts 1 and 2.“The only reason that prevents these artists in town right now is because of some accumulated antagonism over the years to when only sailors got tattoos, or people involved with some sort of illegal trade,” Menna said in an interview with The Two River Times.“That’s no longer the case. You don’t have to be a member of the military or Navy to have a tattoo these days. It’s now an accepted artistic expression. As long as it’s done safely, with safeguards in place, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be allowed here.”Menna said governments should have more faith that their constituents know what’s good for themselves and that the market will work itself out.“In this situation we’re dealing with stereotypes that have plagued the way we look at commerce for so long,” Menna said. “My point is, why don’t we let the market decide what works in a particular area and what doesn’t work.”“A liquor store would not be able to make it in a downtown setting anymore. That’s not just Red Bank, it’s anywhere. The market has dictated that. But a tattoo artist providing his or her craft, in a safe and convenient setting; that’s proven to work. But the market will dictate.”It is not unusual for municipalities to have bans against tattoo shops. Last year at this time, Shrewsbury Borough passed legislation banning them, along with vape shops and gun stores.Tommy Wood owns and operates White Wolf Tattoo with his wife Danielle in a Hazlet strip mall. Three years ago when he launched his own Route 35 establishment, Red Bank would have been an alluring location, he said.“It would be really hard for me to make that move right now because we’re established, even though at one point I really did want to,” Wood said.For an upstart artist looking to lay their roots, Red Bank could be a great option, but the situation would have to be right for both the business owner and the town.“I hope Red Bank shows that they’re committed to having these types of artists in town. It will go a long way if the government leaders and business leaders show that they’re willing embrace and support tattoo shops,” Wood said.“And I hope they get the right shop down there, too. Someone who is going to do it right and not hurt the reputation of the (tattoo artist) community. I wish it could be me, because we are reputable. But hopefully whoever goes in there doesn’t ruin the opportunity,” he added.Jim Scavone is the executive director of Red Bank RiverCenter, an organization founded in 1991 to manage the borough’s business district. He said experiential retail establishments – like DIY enterprises, breweries, art spaces and tattoo parlors – are the future of the municipality.“I think moving forward, in addition to their retail offerings, places that can offer an experience that you can only find in that particular establishment are going to be more successful,” Scavone said.The issues that could serve as deterrents to tattoo shops are the same for any new business moving to town: rent costs and lack of parking.The borough recently formed a private-public partnership with Red Bank RiverCenter to conduct the town’s first parking study in 26 years, which will aim to alleviate the lack of long-term customer and employee parking spaces.As for rent, Wood said it’s the biggest overhead a shop owner has to contend with, which means tattoo artists could be hesitant to make the move.“At the end of the day, most of these people are starving artists,” Wood said. “Unless you’re the shop owner and have five people working under you, you’re living just like everyone else is. Because some days, if the weather turns, you won’t tattoo a damn thing. It’s a gamble being an artist, whether you’re a painter or a tattoo artist. But it’s a labor of love.”This article was first published in the Sept. 27-Oct. 3, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

‘I am not worried’

first_imgKingston College’s (KC) track and field head coach, Neil Harrison, has hit back at his detractors three days after the school lost narrowly to bitter rivals Calabar High at the 2017 ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships.Harrison considers last weekend’s loss to be disappointing but he has challenged himself to overcome defeat with success after leading KC to three consecutive second-place finishes at the championships.”I am committed wherever I am coaching. I have given it 100 per cent. The fact that I have not achieved the objective, it has made me a little stronger, and I always want to prove a point to people,” Harrison outlined.KC entered the championships the overwhelming favourites to unseat defending champions but were beaten by three points, 317 to 314, after Calabar won the final event of the meet, the 4×400 metres.”Most of the people who are making noise have made no contribution to the programme. I am not daunted by them in any shape or form. I am not moved, I am not touched, I am not worried,” Harrison told The Gleaner.”I have been recruited by one Mr (Dave) Myrie, I am answerable to the principal, and until he says otherwise, I am quite fine,” said the coach.He admitted that the KC principal expected a win last weekend.”… He (Myrie) knows we have the team to win. He understands what happened, because a lot of people thought that Friday night we would have been out totally, but we fought gallantly on Saturday, and he lauded us for our efforts. Yes, he wanted a win, but we don’t have a principal who wants to win at all cost,” stressed Harrison.HUMBLE PERSON”I am an individual who is characterised by humility, and I was never ever a person to be overconfident. You will never find me on the media saying KC must win, or will win, even if we have the opportunity,” he underlined.”It’s just very, very unfortunate. I did not succumb to any form of pressure. When you are a winner, there are many mothers and fathers; when you are a loser, you become an orphan. I think we were very unfortunate. We suffered injuries with Jhevaughn Matherson,” he said. According to Harrison that was 18 points lost, as the athlete would have won both the 100 and 200 metres,”KC also lost nine valuable points with (Wayne) Pinnock in the 100m hurdles when he also got hurt,” lamented Harrison, adding that simple mistakes were made by some of his [email protected]last_img read more

Public Security Ministry to enforce protocol for Police donations

first_imgThe Public Security Ministry will examine new protocols for the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to receive donations so that professionalism is not compromised.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan made this pronouncement on Wednesday at the Ministry on Brickdam, where he pledged to examine establishing protocols that stipulate that donations to the GPF be made through the Ministry, the Government Information Agency (GINA) reported.The current operational protocol states that donations to the GPF must be made to the Commissioner of Police. Minister Ramjattan noted that this protocol will be enforced in the meantime so that Police officers’ professionalism is not compromised.Donations by businesses often help to meet an immediate need of Police Stations and officers, Minister Ramjattan noted. “Indeed there are times when the Police and/or the CPGs (Community Policing Groups)… require the assistance of businessmen and there are genuine businessmen who give without wanting anything in return, and who will never compromise the professionalism of the Police Force,” the minister pointed out.However, he emphasised that donations received from businesses do not guarantee any protection if they break the law. “We do not want to see businessmen giving and expecting that they, having committed a crime, will now see that CPG group or Police Force compromising the investigation thereafter,” Minister Ramjattan said.last_img read more

Galaxy’s Cobi Jones to retire

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cobi Jones planned to retire before the 2007 season — but when the Los Angeles Galaxy signed David Beckham, he decided to play another year. Jones, a pioneer on the U.S. national team during the 1990s, said Monday he will retire after the 2007 Major League Soccer season. When Jones originally let his intentions be known to Tim Leiweke, president and chief executive officer of Galaxy owner AEG, Leiweke interrupted him to say Beckham might be joining the Galaxy. “And Cobi said, At the end of this next season,’” Leiweke related, smiling. The 5-foot-7 Jones, who wears distinctive dreadlocks and is quick with a smile, said he’s had a great career, and “I want to go out on a high — with a championship.” Jones, who turns 37 in June, first played for the United States in 1992 and last played in four games for the national team in 2004. He has 15 goals in a U.S. record 164 international appearances, and he played every minute of the U.S. games at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, as well as appearing during the 2002 tournament. He had the Galaxy’s first goal in MLS’s inaugural season, scoring in the 37th minute of the opening day victory over the MetroStars in 1996. He has appeared in 281 games for the Galaxy, with 66 goals and 86 assists — all team records. Los Angeles has made the MLS championship game five times, winning the title in 2002 and 2005. Galaxy general manager Alexi Lalas, formerly Jones’ teammate with the national team and the Galaxy, said soccer in America owes a debt of gratitude to Jones, calling him a “soccer icon.” “It is because of players like Cobi Jones that our team, our league and our sport has survived and thrived,” Lalas said. Jones, who was a walk-on at UCLA, had to prove many critics wrong on his way to becoming one of the country’s best players. “When he first went out for soccer, when he was 7, the coach told us that Cobi couldn’t play the game, so he should give it up and try something else,” Jones’ father, Freeman Jones, recalled. Mada Jones, Cobi’s mother, said, “He was determined. He came home and started kicking the ball against the stair steps again and again, going up step three, then step four.” Freeman Jones shook his head and said, “Who would have guessed back then?”last_img read more

De Gea admits he almost quit Manchester United

first_img David de Gea in action for Manchester United David de Gea admits he considered leaving Manchester United a couple of years ago – but he is glad he opted to stay.De Gea walked away from Old Trafford on Sunday with a big smile on his face after playing a crucial role in United’s 2-1 win over Everton.The Spanish goalkeeper earned glowing reviews for the way he acrobatically denied Leon Osman and Bryan Oviedo, as well as Leighton Baines, who saw his previously impeccable penalty record vanish thanks to De Gea’s right-hand save.“It was probably one of my best performances for Manchester United. I was really happy about that,” De Gea said.“Games like that helps your confidence grow.”Rewind three years and De Gea could barely muster a smile.His dream £18million move from Atletico Madrid immediately turned into a nightmare when he was blamed for both goals in United’s narrow Community Shield win over Manchester City.Worse was to come in the course of his first six months at Old Trafford.Errors against Basle and Benfica quickened United’s early exit from the Champions League while domestically, De Gea cost United points against West Brom and Blackburn among others.De Gea was struggling to bulk up to help him cope with the demands of playing in the Barclays Premier League and, understandably for a 20-year-old, he was finding the move away from his family to a foreign country extremely difficult.At times, the pressure proved too intense for the young goalkeeper, who had played less than two years’ worth of first-team football before he moved to Manchester.“Sometimes,” De Gea said when asked whether he ever thought about leaving.“It’s difficult when you get a lot of criticism like I did. But I kept strong and I always tried to remain positive.“Those early days were difficult for me and my family. But when you play for a big club like Manchester United (being criticised) is normal when you don’t play well.”Although he does not remember the early days of his fledgling career fondly, De Gea is glad he went through the experience as he feels it toughened him up and made him the goalkeeper he is today.“What happened at the start helped me be the player and man I am now,” he said.“When you have bad moments you have to improve. You have to become stronger to deal with it and I believe I have become stronger. I am much better now.”Although he is not completely error-free – last season’s Capital One Cup clanger against Sunderland proved as much – De Gea has improved immeasurably since those opening six months.He has seen off the competition provided by Anders Lindegaard and at international level De Gea is threatening to displace Iker Casillas as Spain’s number one.De Gea credits Frans Hoek, the goalkeeper coach brought in by Louis van Gaal this summer, as one of the men responsible for his upturn in form.“Frans Hoek has helped me a lot,” said De Gea, whose distribution has improved just as much as his shot-stopping.“We are working on trying to start moves from the goalkeeper.“I think I’m playing the best football of my career. Now I’m ready for everything.” 1last_img read more
