EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - Children at Greentree Church in Egg Harbor Township were treated to a short story about Easter by Pastor Paul Long, a magic show and the all-important Easter egg hunt. Children were broken into age groups and herded outside with colorful plastic eggs dotting the grounds.  At the command to go, children, with their family members dragging behind, picked the lawn clean in no time at all.  One by one the eggs were opened and kids devoured the sweet treats inside.

Letter: Back bill to allow more funding for volunteer fire companies

Letter to the Editor, Egg Harbor Township Letter to the Editor, Egg Harbor Township

To the editor:

As an active member of the Egg Harbor Township Volunteer Fire Department, I am writing in hopes to gaining support for Assembly Bill 3048, sponsored by Assemblyman Chris A. Brown.

The bill would amend NJ 40A:14-34, which limits funding by municipalities to volunteer fire companies. The limits would increase from $90,000 a year to $125,000 a year and from $30,000 to $70,000 a year for municipalities with more than three fire companies.

Egg Harbor Township would directly benefit from this amendment as we have five companies in our township, limited to receiving only $30,000 a year.

The amendment has gained the unanimous support of Egg Harbor Township Committee as well as the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders.

Letter: EHTHS prom policy is an abuse of power

Letter to the Editor, Egg Harbor Township Letter to the Editor, Egg Harbor Township

To the editor:

This letter is concerning Egg Harbor Township High School’s mandatory breathalyzer and property/person search for every prom attendee.  Not only is the policy insulting, I believe it is unconstitutional.

Our Fourth Amendment right protects us against unreasonable searches and seizures. It states that “no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”  

There is some gray area regarding unwarranted searches of public school students; nonetheless, based on previous Supreme Court cases, the invasion of the students’ privacy is more severe than the nature and immediacy of the government’s concern.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – Attendees of this year’s Egg Harbor Township High School prom will have to take one more step before being allowed to attend the biggest dance of the year.

 All students and guests will be screened for alcohol at check-in as part of a set of new policies for the 2014 prom.

 The use of breathalyzers was introduced in the prom packet that was sent home to parents and discussed briefly during a parent meeting to discuss mandatory changes held Tuesday, April 8. The meeting was set to provide the administration with a chance to inform parents on the rules and requirements for students who wish to attend the event as well as to allow the Egg Harbor Township Police Department to share information on drug trends among teens and inform parents on the ways to detect use.
