Welcome summer. As we move into the season for barbeques, graduation parties, and fun in the sun the Police Department is preparing for a surge in our calls for service.  Traditionally, during the summer, our calls for service increase. This is due to additional traffic heading to the shore, transient populations in the motels along Route 30, kids being off during the day from school, kids being allowed out late at night because they have no school, heat related arguments and issues, along with the everyday issues.

To the editor:

The Wawa on Pitney and Jimmie Leeds Road is well on its way to opening its gas station across from the ShopRite Supermarket.

There is already traffic congestion on Pitney Road with cars entering and leaving Wawa and ShopRite. In addition, I have been told that Bank of America will be reinstalling an ATM machine in the location (the original ATM was removed quite some time ago from the Wawa).

To the editor:

It was recently reported that the Obama administration has appealed a federal judge’s order that lifts all age limits on who can buy morning after birth control pills without prescription.  The president does not want to allow girls younger that 17 to be able to buy the pill.

The president has long supported abortion. He and his administration have not only lobbied for government financed abortion, but also late-term abortion.

  OPINION OPINION

This is in response to a letter in the May 9 edition from a writer who groused that we should get rid of all our "superstitions" and "baloney beliefs" – which is how he defined belief in God. 

1) Scientific research has proved that the universe had a definite beginning. Science has also proved that every effect must have a cause greater than itself. Thus, something greater than the universe that pre-existed it must have caused it to exist.

LETTER LETTER

Despite a dysfunctional Congress unwilling to put America’s best interests over partisan objectives, our economy continues to slowly recover. 

The Federal Reserve wisely effectuates a policy of bond purchases to the tune of $85 billion per month. Allowing the Fed to control monetary policy, perform duties originally delegated to Congress by our founding fathers, is a major reason why today we have avoided a double-dip recession.
