To the editor:

The New Jersey Supreme Court recently exonerated a Cape May County woman of child abuse charges, reversing a lower court finding of guilty when her newborn tested positive for cocaine. The Supreme Court came to this conclusion since state child abuse laws do not cover a fetus, and the child did not exhibit any obvious complications at birth.

Letter to the editor Letter to the editor

To the editor:

As the need for more revenue deepens, cash-strapped municipalities such as Galloway may increasingly continue to turn to colleges such as Richard Stockton College, as well as other nonprofit groups, to request payment in lieu of the taxes, or PILOT, on their property. Private colleges and other nonprofit organizations, such as hospitals, churches, and soup kitchens are exempt from paying property tax in all 50 states. The forgone revenue may well total as much as $32 billion nationwide.
