Letter: Purse returned, lesson learned

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

To the editor:

To the man, a father of two children, who found my purse on Churchill Drive, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are an angel on Earth.

Egg Harbor Township Police Officer Kolman, another wonderful person, told me how you wanted to teach your children honesty. You certainly did that and a lot more because you turned what could have been a nightmare into a blessed day.

Letter: School board promises are rarely kept

Letter: School board promises are rarely kept Letter: School board promises are rarely kept To the editor: 

The recent Northfield Community School bond referendum, although successful in its purpose, shined a bright light on a critical issue: lack of voter participation. One only has to look at the number of votes cast, around 500, compared with a voter registration of more than 5,000.

Does having only 10 percent of the registered voters coming to the polls indicate that Northfield residents have an apathetic disposition, are prone to being lazy, or maintain a lackadaisical attitude?

Letter: Post Crashers’ help is much appreciated Letter: Post Crashers’ help is much appreciated To the editor:

I have been the commander of the Harvey D. Johnson American Legion Post 295 for the last nine months. Like many Legion posts across the nation, the membership is mostly World War II and Korean War veterans who are aging. We have 50 members, and at 60 years old, I am the second youngest.

We have one man who was a tail gunner on a B-29; he has been a member of the Legion for 70 years. But we now have a building which is old and badly in need of repairs and maintenance because our aging members just haven't been able to keep up with it over the years.

Learning the real story of Richard Somers Learning the real story of Richard Somers To the editor:

On Sept. 4, 1804, Somers Point native Richard Somers and the crew of his ship Intrepid were killed in Tripoli during America’s first war against Islamic terror. This Saturday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m., LibertyAndProsperity.org, the Somers Point Historical Society, and City of Somers Point will hold a brief ceremony to remember them.

As in past years, I and some others, including military journalist/scholar Chipp Reid of Annapolis, will tell their remarkable story.

Letter: Make closed casino into Veterans hospital to support vets and the economy

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Staff Reports Monday, July 28, 2014 12:00 am

To the editor:

While I sincerely hope additional casinos in Atlantic City do not close, I suggest a possible use for one if it does happen. Consider transforming one closed casino into a VA Hospital and Rehabilitation Center. This would not only benefit area Veterans but also provide hundreds of jobs and generate income across the board from Veterans and families for existing casinos, restaurants, hotels, boardwalk, etc.  How therapeutic for the Veterans to enjoy the ocean and beach. Atlantic City hosted them in years past successfully! This would be a year-round entity not dependent upon season, day of the week, or weather conditions.

Restore liberty, rebuild Atlantic City

Many casinos in Atlantic City are closing or moving elsewhere.  It is good to talk about replacing them with other things.

But what business is more profitable?  If a casino can’t make enough to cover expenses, how can any seasonal, non-casino hotel, restaurant, stores, or amusement pier survive?

Letter: Radom drug testing is violation of student’s rights Letter: Radom drug testing is violation of student’s rights To the editor:

The Mainland school bureaucrats are trying to sugarcoat a violation of their students' constitutional rights with their random drug testing policy.

Have they not heard of the Fourth Amendment?
