    Every year I end up writing about the snow vs. rain debate, and I think it’s come early this year. Some people are saying it’s too early to be as cold as it is. I’m not sure. Just because it is this cold, now, doesn’t mean it won’t warm up later.

    Isn’t that what Indian Summer is?

CAPE MAY - For the first time ever, the Nature Center of Cape May will field a team to compete in the World Series of Birding (WSB), thanks in large part to the generosity of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry and the Delaware River and Bay Authority. Calling themselves the “Young Yellowhammers,” the team has a distinctively youthful flare since all members are New Jersey residents between the ages of 13 and 17.

The World Series of Birding, scheduled for Saturday, May 10, is a well-known birding competition that draws participants and teams from around the world to Cape May County. The goal of the competition is for each team to encounter as many different species of birds as possible during a 24 hour period. The professional teams will compete during a full 24 hour cycle, but since this is the “Young Yellowhammers’” first WSB outing, they will compete on an abbreviated 16-hour schedule from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Early postal service was mostly an informal system

While America was achieving its goal of independence during the Revolutionary War from 1775-1783, its leaders knew that starting a new nation was not to be all that easy. They were on their own then. Limited and oppressive that it had been, there was no help from the mother country anymore and, as the saying goes with a bit of alteration, now was the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

One of the problems facing the new kid in the world was the lack of communications. There were no e-mails then or telegrams or telephones and the postman did not ring twice or even once. In Cape May County, as elsewhere, the primitive roads were conversions from the paths of the Lenni Lenape Indians and were not conducive to general travel. Sometimes, in the era of the stage coach, it took four or five days, if at all, for messages to get from one end of the county to the other.
