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.

Letter: Beware of the paranoids

Beware of the paranoids Beware of the paranoids To the editor:

I was reading a book titled, “The Paranoid” by David Swanson, M.D., et al. This book was written in 1970. It is the most complete analysis of this subject written for laymen that I have been able to find to date; it seems that very little new work has been done in this field.

One major part of the paranoid character is that “the paranoid’s omnipresent anger and the indigent conviction that he is correct take precedence over knowledge of potential risk.”

Letter: Push for Route 30 interchange needed sooner

Push for Route 30 interchange needed sooner Push for Route 30 interchange needed sooner To the editor:

The State of New Jersey has given us the run-around on a full Garden State Parkway interchange on Route 30 for decades, despite the economic and public safety benefits it would provide to the residents of Galloway, Absecon, and the barrier islands. Ever since I've been on council, I've urged the Turnpike Authority to pursue an interchange, but to no avail.

Voting should be required by law Voting should be required by law To the editor:

In a democracy, it is the responsibility of every adult citizen to vote.  We require folks with potential tax liability to file returns, don’t we?  Is voting not as important as paying taxes? Furthermore, all efforts to suppress voting must be aggressively thwarted.

Letter: Freeholders let politics interfere with a chance to help veterans in need

Freeholders let politics interfere with a chance to help veterans in need Freeholders let politics interfere with a chance to help veterans in need To the editor:

Last week I attended the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders meeting.  Like most people in attendance, I was there to show support for an ordinance that would establish a county trust fund for homeless veterans and families suffering from Hurricane Sandy. 

At the heart of the ordinance, a $3 processing fee would be applied to all county documents, with the proceeds establishing the trust fund.  It sounds pretty cut and dry, but few are things in local politics.

Letters pushing left-wing policy are misleading

Written by Opinion Tuesday, April 29, 2014 11:00 pm

To the editor:

If last week’s letter “Government works for us only when we pay attention” went something like this, I might have enjoyed reading it (plus, it would have been more accurate): “Folks living in the far left side of the political spectrum who were led to believe that big government is always the solution, never the problem, that government intrusion is too small, have all the rights to the business regulating government and business – they just don't get it.”

Cat rescue was a community effort Cat rescue was a community effort To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of the community behind Cologne Animal Hospital for all their concern and watchful eyes while I was trying to trap my lost and frightened cat, Des.

Thanks to Justin for checking on me as I was parked in the hospital lot, making sure I was OK and not having problems.
