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.

Separated by the Delaware Bay and a short trip aboard the Cape May – Lewes Ferry, the schools renewed their football rivalry in 2010. 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.

CAPE MAY COUNTY – County counsel Jim Arsenault said a meeting was scheduled Wednesday, Sept. 10 to discuss how the special election on dissolving the Lower Cape May Regional School District would be paid for.

At the Sept. 2 Cape May City Council meeting, Deputy Mayor Jack Wichterman said their attorney for the school dissolution issue, Vito Gagliardi, had provided the county clerk and county attorney with information suggesting, in the past, the regional school districts have borne the cost of a special election.

“I have seen the stuff (Gagliardi) sent me. It’s interesting, but I don’t know if dispositive,” Arsenault said, indicating he didn’t believe the information provided would affect the decision.
