To the editor:

There is no greater expression of love for humankind than the sharing of what one has with those who have not. He or she doing so and seeking no reward in return deserves a permanent seat at the summit of our respect.

Pinelands pipeline is a dangerous step

 To the editor:

South Jersey Gas is planning to put a 24 inch steel gas pipe through our country’s first National Reserve – the Pinelands – in order to fulfill the profit needs of its shareholders. This is a very dangerous step towards the destruction of the very core of New Jersey. There is no turning back if this pipeline is approved.

The South Jersey gas plant would replace the B.L. England coal-fired plant in Beesleys Point which is a peak demand generator of electricity, meaning it operates approximately 40 days a year when electricity demands are at the highest. The gas plant would run 24-hours, seven days a week. This will result in noise, pollution and danger. It makes one wonder whether the eventual goal is to export gas.

To the editor:

During my college days, I was fortunate to hear Kurt Vonnegut speak. He likened the human race to a hot meat glacier, crawling over the earth, smothering everything in its path. When I read the article about the piping plovers in Strathmere and our mayor's statement, "For three or four birds, we could have someone seriously hurt," it reminded me of Mr. Vonnegut's words.

 To the editor:

On Feb. 28 after 10:30 at night, I lost my Petersburg home to fire. My son Charlie, 6, and I barely escaped. Unfortunately, we lost our sweet animals and everything else we owned. I was the keeper of our family treasures, and everything burned to ruin, every childhood picture I had of myself and my sister, letters from high school friends, my mother’s books, my great grandparents’ country plates, Charlie’s first tooth.
