    Quinn Bithell is a major reason why. The versatile sophomore already owns or shares six program records in a variety of events.

    Bithell and her teammates set three new records at the recent Buena Relays. Bithell, Destiny West, Lizzy Sulecki and Suzanne Beteta set a new program mark…

 CAPE MAY – A legal team looking into the city’s school funding fights presented its latest finding to city council this week, submitting that “the dissolution of the Lower Cape May Regional (school district) is both feasible and beneficial.”

“Lower Township would become a PK-12 district and…each of the other communities would have an opportunity for both tax savings and for the education of grade seven through 12 students in a PK-12 district by virtue of sending-receiving relationships,” according to a 94-page report from the four-member team summarized for council on Tuesday, June 18.
