    EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP –  Egg Harbor Township Committee is expected to approve a new affordable housing project at its Wednesday, Sept. 17 meeting.

    If approved, the project would create up to 135 units of affordable “family housing” by the Marlton-based Michaels Development Company at the intersection of Doughty and Fire roads.

    The township is required by the state to provide affordable housing, despite years of court battles attempting to get its many existing mobile home parks and apartments used as credit toward that obligation.

To the editor:
Graduation time has come around again. In a few weeks we will be hearing from commencement speakers and valedictorians.
In recent years it has become all too common for area schools to censor or otherwise restrict the words of student graduation speakers. Valedictorians have been asked to submit their speeches in advance for approval by the school administration. Student speakers have been unceremoniously shut down for deviating from an approved script.

Legally speaking, killing Stevens was like killing Obama

To the editor:

Regarding the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, it’s important to remember that Ambassador Stevens was the official representative of the president of the United States to the head of state of Libya.  

I was hired as secretary to the very first Indonesian consul to the United States and worked at the consulate in Rockefeller Center from 1951 to 1953.  I recall that one of our secretaries was fired for not saying “good morning” to the then Indonesian ambassador plenipotentiary to the United States, Dr. Ali Sastroamidjojo.  He was on one of his rare visits to the consulate, and the secretary failed to look up and greet him as he passed by her desk.  Five minutes later, she was fired, and that was the reason given.
