Concerning the news that the township is going to stop backing out of parking spaces for municipal vehicles, I really don't know what else to say except, "Are you kidding me?"

To the editor:

History is frequently being changed. New books contradict old books. A fact one year is dismissed as a fib the next years, leading readers to conclude the past is less solid than formerly supposed.

Upper does not pay more for less

To the editor:

My family moved to Upper Township from Cumberland County almost four years ago for two reasons: low taxes and good schools.

We spent more money on a house here than we would have in other areas we looked, but overall moving to Upper was a better "deal" than any other area in South Jersey. Our taxes are lower here than they were where we lived before, considerably lower in fact. And the schools are considerably better. It's just a better way of life in general, we think. The value proposition is obvious (at least to us) when comparing Upper Township to neighboring areas.

To the editor:
 
The Strathmere Post Office reduced its window service from eight hours to four hours in the afternoon starting Monday, May 20.

Last week's paper, which indicated that "Strathmere residents opposed the change and tried to get the post office to remain open in the mornings” did not tell the whole story.

 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.
