To the editor:

Committeewoman Aline Dix asks valid questions at Hamilton Township public meetings. She brings up important issues that need to be addressed, discussed and resolved. Isn’t that the reason for the meetings? Why is she cut off and stopped from asking questions? I don’t hear many questions from other committeepersons.

Letter: Confessions of a former Dix supporter Letter: Confessions of a former Dix supporter To the editor:

My name is Harry Rogers, and I am a recovering Aline Dix supporter. I confess that I campaigned for her twice, donated to her campaign twice and went door to door in support of her candidacy. For these misguided actions, I must sincerely apologize to the voters of Hamilton Township.

I was once captivated with Ms. Dix’s activism and encyclopedic grasp of trivial facts. When in 2011 she accused the township committee of “multimillion dollar bond malfeasance,” I once again marveled at her grasp of the situation. On the strength of her allegations the committee called in state inspectors despite coming off two years of spotless audits.

Letter: Vote the incumbents out Letter: Vote the incumbents out To the editor:

This November I plan on voting against every incumbent. It seems the issues that were present when these fine people took office are still an issue. Take heed, members of Congress, county and local council incumbents – I'm voting for your opponent, and these are my reasons.

I am voting for the opponent of any governing officials who monitor the intersection of New York Avenue and Route 40. For more than six years they would rather buy more orange barrels than repair a drainage issue.

Have respect for non-fans of the World Cup Have respect for non-fans of the World Cup To the editor:

In reference to the story on the popularity of the World Cup this go-round, that's great news for new and old soccer fans alike. What I object to is the snobbery shown by many soccer fans toward me, a non-fan of the sport.

It’s time to tighten up our borders It’s time to tighten up our borders To the editor:

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?

The ‘smart gun’ is flawed technology The ‘smart gun’ is flawed technology To the editor:

The recent column in The Current, "Have you heard about the smart gun?,” is just another example of the kind of disingenuous verbiage we are accustomed to getting from leftwing zealots intent on creating a particular mindset among readers via half-truths, distortions and omissions of facts.

Point of cleanup lost on one family Point of cleanup lost on one family To the editor:

I'm sure there's a moral to the following story, but I need help with it, perhaps from your readers:

After Egg Harbor City's trash cleanup on May 3, everyone who participated was invited to a barbecue lunch at the City Lake Pavilion.  I watched a family and a group of boys enjoy their food on a beach at the edge of the lake.
