JerzDevil :

Are there different parts of Bergen County? Are places like fort lee, edgewater, and palisades park good parts of bergen county? i've heard there are a lot of asians there but from what i've originally heard, bergen county had a lot of white people. is that true?

General Cucombre :
"They say New Jersey is like Greece - it has everything. So does Bergen County. It is not that big, but it's pretty diverse and it certainly doesn't lack white people. There are also definitely lots of Koreans, especially in the areas close to the city, like Fort Lee and Palisades Park. Good parts mean completely different things to different people, especially in this part of the world. I wouldn't live there myself, but I have friends in Bergen County and they seem to be happy."
charlieshepp :
"Bergen county is average size (not knowing what you consider big). All of these areas are racially mixed, like anywhere else. Alot of professionals call this area home. I believe it is also the richest area per capita in New Jersey."
NYC Chutzpah :
"As the others said Bergen is very diverse. Plaisades Park is heavily Korean with most of the shops catering to the Korean population, most stores only have signs in Korean and discourage non-koreans from shopping in them. There are also parts that are mostly black or hispanic, some that are white. Bergen is just like the city."

Just wondering if she is her Mom? Candice is Edgar Bergen's daughter, right?

Jennifer S :
"Candice is edgar's daughter but I don't know if POlly and Candice are related or not."
pipi08_2000 :
"Candice's mother is Frances Westerman Bergen and from anything I found on they are not related."
Yogi P :

Does anyone know what is gonna be on the bergen academies entrance exam? I know that there is math but what if any is going to be in it for the reading portion?

rustin313 :
"The exam will consist of two portions: Language Arts and Math. The math portion will consist of 40 questions. About half will be word problems (more difficult). There will be 2 "extra credit" problems which will be very difficult but will only count if they are right. In the language arts portion, there will be a short story given for you to read and then you'll have to answer one question persuasively."

Barnevernet i Bergen ansatte kanskje Norges verste overgriper mot barn, i media er saken kjent som "lommemannen" (hans bror var politi i Bergen). Men hvorfor ble ikke den siktede stoppet i 1999, da fantes det gode vitneforklaring. Finnes det en ukultur i den bergenske maktelite og er kameraderi årsaken til at lommemannen fikk holde på så lenge?
