Robert Newman Robert Newman CAPE MAY - Cape May Stage tackles intense family dynamics with “Other Desert Cities” by Jon Robin Baitz. A finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this depiction of a family with deeply oppositional political views is a stirring reminder of the depth of family ties.

After a six-year absence, Brooke Wyeth returns to her Reaganite parents’ Palm Springs enclave for the holidays. But the warm desert air turns chilly when news of her upcoming memoir threatens to revive the most painful chapter of the family’s history. Perception and reality grapple with love and mercy as old family wounds are opened, childhood memories are tested, and the Wyeth clan learns that some secrets cannot stay buried forever. Full of surprisingly touching moments, Other Desert Cities brings family drama to new heights.

LOWER TOWNSHIP – The township solicitor’s advice to council not to spend taxpayer money to advocate a position on the school funding fight prompted some members of the public to ask last week if the LTMUA board had not violated state law in that regard.

“You can advocate to your hearts’ content,” solicitor Ron Gelzunas told council members, “but you can’t spend public funds.”

Gelzunas said the township can spend tax money to give the public factual information, but ads or public relations material could not contain advocacy for or against the school dissolution. Gelzunas said if they spent taxpayer money to advocate one side, the opposition should have the opportunity to spend public funds to present their case.

CAPE MAY OURT HOUSE - Access to health care services is an ongoing challenge to the New Jersey health care system. With a physician shortage, aging population and a growing prevalence of chronic disease, the lack of accessible and convenient public health services is critical. 

To help meet the need for greater access to health services and bridge gaps in patient care, while also improving care coordination, Freeholder Kristine Gabor announced that the Cape May County Department of Health will now be providing clinical services in Lower Township. Public health clinics will be held at the Lower Township Senior Center located at 2612 Bayshore Rd., in Villas. Clinics are to be scheduled by appointment for the first and third Thursday of each month from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

CAPE MAY – Mayor Ed Mahaney announced last week the beginning of a state dredging project that will begin in Cape May Harbor.
Mahaney said under a new formula, Cape May and the Port of Cape May would be the first entity to receive dredging under a new state contract.
“After Hurricane Sandy the state directed the DEP to look at all channels and determine which ones were in need of dredging,” Mahaney said.
In March the New Jersey Department of Transportation announced a State Channel Dredging Program, which includes Cape May Harbor and Middle Thorofare in Cape May County.

CAPE HENLOPEN – Cape Henlopen High School will host the Lower Cape May Regional Caper Tigers, Saturday, Sept. 13, for a 1 p.m. varsity football game. The winner claims the DRBA Commissioners Cup.

The Cape Schools hadn’t played in the regular season since the early 1980s. The host Caper Tigers beat the Vikings 25-3 in that first meeting while Cape Henlopen returned the favor on September 17, 2011, winning 32-14. That means the DRBA Commissioners Cup series is currently split 1-1.
