Letter: How many pedestrians have to die?

To the editor:

How many people have to die before the state of New Jersey, Atlantic County, and local municipalities do something? I grew up in Camden County before moving to Somers Point back in the 1980s, and everywhere you go there are sidewalks. Here in Atlantic County there are long stretches of highly traveled roadways that have no paved sidewalks, leaving people no alternative but to walk in dangerous traffic.

The other day I was out in the meadows pursuing my passion for waterfowling when I noticed something was different.

The electronic billboard is gone. The abomination is no more.

Ralph Ralph

To the editor;

Ralph and Isabelle
Dog lovers in Atlantic County will no doubt remember the frantic calls for help eight years ago to locate Ralph and Isabelle, brother and sister family pets, adopted at seven months from the Pleasantville Animal Shelter. They escaped one stormy night, leaving through a storm caused hole in the fence, not noticed by their owners.

To the editor:

Nice to read that our Linwood mayor appointed a 14-member "blue ribbon committee" to create a recreation master plan – but really, are there only three women he could find in this whole city to be a part of this? Just wondering.

To the editor:

Alzheimer's is a devastating, debilitating brain disorder that robs people of their cognitive abilities and ultimately their lives.  Every 67 seconds someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer's disease, which is the nation's 6th leading cause of death.  Alzheimer's is the only disease in the list of top-10 causes of death for which there is no way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression.  In 2013, Alzheimer's cost the nation more than $200 billion, making it our most expensive disease.

Letter: Christie out of line Letter: Christie out of line To the editor:

I watched with disgust as Governor Christie verbally attacked a so called "heckler" who dared to hold up a sign encouraging the governor to finish the job. More than 8,000 people are still out of their homes two years after Hurricane Sandy and 70 percent of the funds given to the governor to distribute by the federal government have not been distributed to people in need.

Letter: Decriminalize concealed carry Letter: Decriminalize concealed carry To the editor:

The terrorist incident in Canada is but the latest example of why the time to decriminalize the concealed carry of firearms by law-abiding citizens in New Jersey is now.

It is self-evident that we are living in dangerous times. Nothing is more important, and nothing should be held in higher esteem by our political leaders, than our God-given right of self-protection.

Letter: Thanks for help with Legion hall issue Letter: Thanks for help with Legion hall issue To the editor:

The old American Legion building in Linwood has finally been demolished. After 10 years we no longer have to look at and deal with that unsightly safety hazard. Now in its place the neighborhood has a graded lot, ready for a new home.

With all that behind us, there are several parties that we as Elm Avenue residents would like to say thank you to for their support resolving what turned out to be a very complex situation.
