LOWER TOWNSHIP – The Lower Township Taxpayer Association has started a campaign to place signs around the township urging voters to reject questions regarding changes in the Lower Cape May Regional School District.

The first question comes on Nov. 4, asking voters if they would like to change to a per pupil funding formula rather than one based on property taxes. This is essentially the position of Cape May, and the Lower Township group would like to see the question rejected.

CAPE MAY – President Ronald Reagan was widely known as “The Great Communicator.” Many people don’t know it was a Cape May resident who was behind Reagan’s effectiveness as a debater.
“He was a great communicator well before I met him,” Martel said. “What I thought I brought to the table was a sense of focus to the debate process as well as strategic insights. His communicative gifts were evident throughout the process and his career. I was amazed by his ability to absorb and express ideas.”
Martel will be participating with actor Robert Newman in a “Talk Back” session after the Friday, Oct. 17, performance of “Other Desert Cities,” running through Oct. 31 at Cape May Stage.

CAPE MAY – Why are beach sweeps so important? 

Because even though those who live at the shore know how hazardous balloons and plastic bags can be to marine life, visitors to the shore are very often less careful.
For over 30 years Clean Ocean Action has carefully tracked and cataloged the type of debris and refuse recovered during every clean up so that focused emphasis can be placed on specific items. Twenty years ago it was hypodermic needles, 10 years ago it was plastic 6-pack rings, and today it is balloons and plastic shopping bags.
The only way to remove trash and dangerous debris from our beaches and harbor is by picking it up. Consider joining the Nature Center on Saturday, Oct. 25, for Clean Ocean Action’s biannual beach sweep. Meet at the Nature Center of Cape May at 9 a.m. – they wil
