There are growing concerns if the department will be able to handle an influx of duties such as snow removal and leaf pickup on top of their day-to-day maintenance plans.

Letter: We were never supposed to forget, but Absegami did Letter: We were never supposed to forget, but Absegami did To the editor:

Churches were once the hub of communities responsible for teaching and preserving our local heritage, values, and traditions.  Children were taught community pride and an understanding of what their town held near and dear to its heart.
