To the editor:

Well, it’s three strikes and you are out for Jeri-Lynn Gatto, principal at AbsegamiHigh School.

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

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

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.

It would be difficult to find any American that doesn’t believe our country deserved to govern itself free of British rule.  The Stamp Act, Tea Act, and the phrase “taxation without representation” are ingrained in us as some of the reasons our forefathers chose to revolt against what they felt was a tyrannical government that didn’t have the support of many of the American colonists.

To the editor:

As you are aware, the last two graduation ceremonies of Absegami High School were disrupted by bad weather.

I wish that the school would be able to come up with a solution for weather conditions out of their control. There should be a contingency plan to either have a rain date for the ceremony, change the start time of the ceremony, or move it indoors.

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.

Galloway police calls rise with the thermometer

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.
