To the editor:

After reading your article on Middle Township's business growing in the July 25 edition of the Gazette (“Middle says business is picking up,” Page 1), I am very insulted and appalled at your lack of mentioning the small business, servicing oriented, family owned businesses in the Cape May Court House immediate area.

To the editor:

Recently I was walking with a friend on Magnolia Avenue in Cape May Court House. We were surprised at the trash that had become apparent in the last few days.

The first thing, next morning, I walked the same area. The trash was gone, municipal workers were already there cutting grass, weed whacking, and even shoveling out the drains. I was able to thank one worker who smiled and kept doing his job.

On July 3, 1911, New Jersey Gov. Woodrow Wilson dedicated the road into Stone Harbor.

The road into southern Ocean City is named after Franklin D. Roosevelt. The road into Sea Isle City is named after John F. Kennedy. The bridge into Wildwood is named after George Redding, who was mayor of North Wildwood for 20 years before being elected to state Senate in 1945.

To the editor:   

We would like to address your attention to the following matter of concern; namely, your recent budget cuts which eliminated 12 teaching positions in the Middle Township School District.

At the Middle School, the entire World Language Department was cut (two teachers) completely eliminating any possibility for the students to be able to learn introductory Spanish and French. In addition, the World Language Academic program - French 1 and Spanish 1 - that will enable students to matriculate into advanced placement French or Spanish by senior year, was cut.

 To the editor:

The anonymity of the internet brings concerned citizens to great criticism from dubious sources. It is difficult listening to folks who blindly defend either party simply because it is their affiliation. Worse is when it appears their livelihoods are entangled in the mix.
