Joe Wilkins fits in real well with the far left loons.

His column on illegal juvenile immigrants shows that he is more interested in backing the president than worrying about the economy of the country.  If we take in 50,000 children now, and more are anticipated from Central America, what’s to stop more children from relocating from that area or even other locations in the world?

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – The J. Harold Duberson School on Farragut Avenue in Mays Landing has sat dormant for many years as it continues to fall into disrepair. During that time, many rumors and ideas have been floated about as to potential developers and uses for the building, originally constructed as Mays Landing High School, none of which have come to fruition.

At the Tuesday, June 24 school board meeting however, Solicitor Eric Goldstein offered perhaps the most promising glimmer of hope yet when he announced that a potential buyer will attend the meeting on July 1 to address the board.
