    Four key things to know about taking maternity leave in New Jersey

    Writing this week’s column brought me right back. As I tried to refresh my knowledge on the laws regarding maternity leave in New Jersey to offer a primer for local expectant moms, I remembered how I felt when I was in their place; it seemed no one could give me a straight answer about how much time I could take off and…

    Senate President Steve Sweeney’s surprise announcement about gambling in North Jersey creates even more difficulties for our region, already experiencing tremendous economic challenges. It is particularly troubling now as Revel goes through another bankruptcy and as Showboat prepares to close in August, putting more than 2,000 people out of work.

Members of the various Egg Harbor Township fire departments had the rare opportunity to train together in the abandoned Sea Breeze Motel in West Atlantic City on Wednesday, July 9.  Firefighters from the Cardiff, Scullville, West Atlantic City, Bargaintown and Farmington fire departments were able to practice their skills in a relatively safe and controlled environment. While the use of real fire in the drill is not permitted, firefighters were able to simulate actual scenarios of breaching walls, gaining access to the second story and maximizing teamwork in the course of a fire emergency.

It is a disgrace how the Egg Harbor Township teachers are being treated and characterized by some members of the Board of Education It is a disgrace how the Egg Harbor Township teachers are being treated and characterized by some members of the Board of Education To the editor:

I recently read letters to the editor from parents expressing concern over the lack of a settled contract in Egg Harbor Township, which could impact their children’s college application process. This is unfortunate, but I do not understand why these letters place all of the blame for this situation on the teachers.

Parents need to understand that the Board of Education is at least equally to blame for this stalemate. Sadly, I feel that the only reason most of these parents are even engaging on this issue is because it may now affect them. Where is the support for the teachers from the parents?
