 To the editor:

Here’s an update on the Grubb v. Upper Township zoning officer Shelly Lea. For those of you not aware of the situation, in October of 2012 Ms. Lea removed my 18x24 KG Landscaping business sign from the woods line of my parents’ property on Route 50 without notifying anyone in anyway. I went to Township Hall to inquire if she did take the sign and she confirmed she did, claiming it was in the right of way of the state highway and I was not allowed to have it based on the ordinance. I informed her it was on private property and not the state’s property and asked if I could read the sign ordinance, which she produced for me. I read the entire ordinance and when I finished I asked her where it stated she could take my sign. The only answer was “That’s just what we do, the county does, the state does it, and that’s what we do.” I asked where the sign was and she informed me it might still be in the dumpster.

To the editor:

It is school budget time again in Upper Township and we are hearing the same old thing. That it is a barebones budget but it increases about two percent, which happens to be the state cap figure. We are told that we must increase spending to the cap or we will lose money next year.

To the editor:

Another dog in the Philadelphia area was found frozen to death this week. The last few years several deaths in both Atlantic and Cape May County New Jersey were reported. Who knows how many more deaths there were that no one knew about? Before another tragedy like this happens, please pay attention to your neighborhood. You possibly could save the life of a dog if you do.  Pets left outside in extreme temperatures without food and shelter are at risk of hypothermia, frostbite, and even death, placing their owners at risk of facing criminal charges.
