"Jerk" Chicken

What you didn't see on our story about the Bronx Caterer owed 7,440 from the Bronx Pride Community Center was all the hard work which goes into running Jane Smith's take-out restaurant and catering business.  She's 74 and every days she's up there morning till night making her Jamaican food -oxtail, curried goat and Jerk Chicken.  Its a shame she got "jerked" around by this community center. We were glad the new Director saw to it to get her some of the money owed to her. Jane was late on her con ed bill, her lease and her advertising bill.  All this because she continued to provide after school meals for kids even when she stopped getting paid, never believing a "community" center would stop taking her calls..she waited 7 months to see a dime.
