  1. Middle Township - On trash pick-up day, we saw that the recycling was missed by accident. I called public works and a very nice woman took my number and called back to say that they would come back to pick them up. Now, that's service. This is all the people of this township are asking for. I vote this woman for employee of the month.

  2. Lower Township - I do not understand the spouts suggesting public workers are "special" and we are lucky to have them. They are performing a job just like workers in the private sector, only with many more benefits. The jobs performed by all workers are needed. That is the crux of the problem; public workers have the mentality of entitlement; they are special and needed and therefore, deserve exorbitant benefits. Public workers need to stop bargaining with that mentality, especially in light of the revenue losses NJ faces from the demise of Atlantic City.

  3. Villas - During the Congressional hearings to ascertain resources to defend us against the terrorist ISIS threat, Code Pink tried to disrupt the hearings. How beneficial it would be if they were really so concerned with keeping the peace that they volunteered to deter the Ebola threat in West Africa, an even bigger threat to the whole world. Time for Code Pink to show their true colors, which at this point appear yellow.

  4. Stone Harbor - It is obvious from all the spouts that Stone Harbor should pull out of the Cape May County library system and have their own library, or partner with Avalon Library. Our town could better use the $1,400,000 annual taxes we now pay to the county. This would be best for Stone Harbor and for all of our taxpayers. Let's stop fooling ourselves that the county will build us an appropriate facility in Stone Harbor; they have other priorities.

  5. Wildwood Crest - The number of spectators watching the annual parade of firetrucks in the Crest has dwindled considerably. Therefore, is it really necessary to tie up traffic by closing off streets in the northern Crest? Perhaps the parade could start on Cresse Ave., between the Crest and Wildwood, next year.

  6. Dennisville - Where there are concentrated pockets of drug problems in neighborhoods, more police presence on the streets and vice squads makes perfect sense, but the best thing individual families can do if they worry about their children being exposed to a bad element, whether it be drugs, or even bullying, is to move them out of the particular area. No amount of talk or punishment will help with that kind of peer pressure. The hassle of moving is so worth it when compared to the agony of dealing with drug addiction or being bullied.

  7. North Cape May - Please stop bashing public employees. My father was a correction officer. He worked on Christmas, birthdays and holidays. People say he got overtime pay, but believe me, it was not much, and not what we wanted. He was assaulted, spit on and had things thrown on him just for being there. If you had a family member in public service, you would understand.

  8. Avalon - Contrary to what an Avalon spouter thinks, the Canadians do not have our backs. They stayed out of Vietnam, which was their prerogative, then sheltered our draft dodgers and allowed the shipment of medical supplies to North Vietnam, as if anyone would be so foolish to believe they ended up in the hands of non-combatants. One does not have to agree with the war in Vietnam to realize that giving aid and comfort to our enemies was not having our back. With a population only about 10 percent of ours, their greatest value is still as a physical barrier to Russian invasion, as in the Cold War.

  9. Wildwood - There is a very simple explanation for why Wildwood's taxes are so high. It is because the operating expenses are so high. So, if operating expenses are cut, then the taxes can be cut too.

  10. Avalon Manor - Someone is spouting against beach replenishment and saying barrier island residents should live there at their own risk. Nice, but what is going to happen to the rest of Cape May County when the half a million or so tourists and summer residents don't have barrier islands to come and play on? Is fishing or farming going to keep all of the mainland residents in jobs? Tourism, like it or not, is Cape May County's livelihood. Yes, it is foolish to live on a sand bar, but when people who feed the economy live on that sand bar, you realize how important those sand bars can be.
