To the editor,

Wow! I read your story, “A story of terror and murder” in your Nov. 7 edition of the Wildwood Leader. My name is Sean Breslin, and my aunt was Doris Breslin, that you referred to in the story. I’m 52 years old and was never told about this crime. I read your article with great interest and just ordered the book. I guess every family has secrets, but mine was mind-blowing.

The saints came marching in for Cozy Morley on Friday and he had them laughing all the way to the great audience in the sky.

The curtain came down on the life of Thomas Francis Morley at the age of 87, leaving behind a heritage as a comedian, a musician, a nightclub owner and a benefactor of seashore culture. For many of the legions he entertained since he was 17 years old, Cozy Morley was to the Wildwoods what Bob Hope was to the nation.

To the editor:

We are writing to publicly extend our love and gratitude to the management and staff of the Little Italy restaurant in Wildwood Crest.  Over the nine years our daughter Fiona McKechnie worked there, even on the busiest days, Fiona considered Little Italy her ‘other home.’  Pancreatic cancer took Fiona from us all on 17 March 2013;  at 41 such a loss, far too soon.  Everyone at Little Italy has been a source of great strength and comfort to us.

To the editor, 

A news article on baggy pants, etc., appeared in our local newspaper a few weeks ago, courtesy of the Associated Press.

I totally agree with your town mayor, and I was prompted to compose this short verse on the subject. Several friends here thought you might enjoy a copy:
