Letter: Quarantine is the only way to contain Ebola Letter: Quarantine is the only way to contain Ebola To the editor:

This is in reference to allowing fatal contagious diseases into the country.

I don’t believe that any country has ever allowed a contagious, fatal disease into it, until now. Add to that, there is no known cure. At this time, there is the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, and Saudi Arabia is not allowing people in from certain countries, to prevent Ebola from spreading.

Letter: A few casino execs get the gold mine; all others get the shaft

Letter: A few casino execs get the gold mine; all others get the shaft Letter: A few casino execs get the gold mine; all others get the shaft To the editor:

The lead article in the Oct. 3 edition of the Atlantic City Press asserts $700,000 will be split among key Revel employees from proceeds of the casino’s sale. Meanwhile, thousands of laid-off employees are hoping for an extension to their unemployment benefits. A few folks get the gold mine while everybody else gets the shaft.

Furthermore, Taj Mahal muckamucks are threatening to close their casino if they are not allowed to trade union pension payments for 401(k) plans.

I guess it’s no pain for the execs, but lots of pain for the labor force that makes everything work.

Letter: AC used to be a town of traditions Letter: AC used to be a town of traditions To the editor:

As the annual Miss America competition approaches and decades of tradition continue, one question comes to my mind: “Where are all the new traditions that Atlantic City will be remembered for?” I see so many people smile and reminisce about the Show Us Your Shoes Parade, the big final night and how they have loved the pageant since they were kids. These nostalgic memories make me question, however, if we will ever get any more wonderful traditions out of Atlantic City.

Letter: A society needs a well-educated citizenry to survive

Letter: A society needs a well-educated citizenry to survive Letter: A society needs a well-educated citizenry to survive To the editor:

Much concern has been voiced at town meetings about increases in property taxes. As a senior citizen on a fixed income, I feel these concerns are understandable, but let’s look at the problem from a different point of view. Has the cost of maintaining your home increased lately? Have your utility bills increased? Gas prices up? The schools, and their employees, are trying to cope with the same increases as the rest of us. There are six school buildings in Galloway to heat and maintain, and their utility and service bills increase just as yours and mine do.

Letter: The economy does better with Democrats in the White House Letter: The economy does better with Democrats in the White House To the editor:

If you vote your pocketbook, here are a few facts to consider: We are entitled to our own opinions, but not our own facts.

According to Matt Egan of Fox Business (not exactly a liberal source), the U.S economy, stock prices, and corporate profits do better under Democratic administrations than Republican ones.

Letter: It’s time to move out of Galloway Letter: It’s time to move out of Galloway To the editor:

My wife and I moved to Galloway about seven years ago and the taxes here have gone up every year and are now out of control.

I moved from Absecon, which also has high taxes, but they get services for the money. We don’t in Galloway.

Letter: Time to cut government across the board Letter: Time to cut government across the board To the editor:

I would like to suggest that the following items be considered regarding the local financial situation, not just in Galloway, but in the general area.

I would like to try a 1 percent, across-the-board cut in all government departments and for all employees. The next year do the same thing, but increase the cut to 2 percent, resulting in a 3 percent total drop in the cost of government.

Letter: Attend tonight’s Galloway meeting and start asking questions Letter: Attend tonight’s Galloway meeting and start asking questions To the editor:

Over the last several years, the residents of Galloway Township have patiently endured the rhetoric coming from our town council and previous town manager, Arch Liston, regarding the need to balance our budget by cutting $1.6 million in services and employees.

We need to merge our collective brainpower, step up and come up with ideas that could save Atlantic City. We need to merge our collective brainpower, step up and come up with ideas that could save Atlantic City. To the editor:

My wife Roseann and I are fortunate to live in Four Seasons, a senior community adorned with manicured lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, aesthetically pleasing bushes, ornate flower beds framing winding rows of attractive homes. 

Ponds alive with floating fountains, tree-lined pathways designed to accommodate pedestrians and bikers add to the charming ambience. And let’s not forget a clubhouse, more like a resort, with indoor and outdoor pools, bocce, tennis, shuffleboard and pickle ball courts offering so many activities a resident could fill his or her day with nothing but fun and games.

10 things locals should do before summer’s end 10 things locals should do before summer’s end As August sneaks up on us, “Back to School” sales are hitting the stores and students are packing up their boxes, it can be difficult to utilize the last weeks of summer. 

1. Take a tourist day.

Treat yourself to a day of purely tourist activities. Go on the rides, go to the water park, eat a funnel cake, or whatever it is that you secretly wish you could enjoy the way tourists do.
