Don’t judge a sunscreen by its cover. Not all sunscreens are created equal. Most block the sun’s UVB rays which cause sunburn. Only a few block UVA rays which can cause cancer.

For the past two years you have made poor judgment calls about graduation and have ruined the day for family, friends and of course the graduates. Maybe running Absegami should be left to someone more qualified.

Time for an Election Day revolution in America

To the editor:

In a few short weeks America will celebrate Independence Day.  Many of us will attend parades and barbecues to celebrate our independence from Great Britain – freedom that was paid for by the blood and sacrifice of our brave patriots more than two centuries ago.

Competing in a global economy can be hazardous, in the long term, to our nation’s health, especially on the consumer side of the economic equation. White and blue collar workers in many foreign lands, especially in developing nations, accept way less compensation than workers in the USA.
