  1. Stone Harbor - Contrary to what a Stone Harbor spouter says, municipalities can prevent the tearing down of old homes by writing zoning laws that cover historic properties. They can legally protect buildings built before a specific date. Generally, these historic district laws only apply to the facade, and owners can do what they will with the interior. Charleston, S.C. is a fantastic example of how zoning laws like this work and preserve beautiful buildings.

  2. Cape May - The Brigantine seagull lover needs an education. Seagulls are natural predators who are perfectly capable of feeding themselves. When they become too assimilated to humans, they become a nuisance and can cause problems not only for the humans but for themselves. They come to rely on 'scraps of bread' instead of hunting the way nature designed them to. They become annoying and even vicious scavengers who resort to actually stealing food out of the hands of humans, causing a serious potential for harm for both. This person's misplaced kindness needs to be corrected. They should remain wild.

  3. Wildwood - I have been given a police scanner as a gift. It opened my eyes to what our police and EMTs are dealing with each and every day! God Bless these men and women who keep us safe and secure. If only the people who gripe about them would get a scanner and see what they deal with daily! Believe me, they would gripe no more!

  4. Cape May - The bike racks in Cape May are useless. The space between each vertical bar is about five times too wide to hold any bike. They look like they were made for anything else but a bike rack. The racks along the beach are what should be in and around town. Never seen such a waste of taxpayer money. Get rid of them ASAP!

  5. Rio Grande - I heard Middle Township police are now conducting bike patrols in the Rio Grande area. I think this is great! Thank you for looking out for the people of Rio Grande and being proactive. God bless the MTPD.

  6. North Cape May - The LT sandbar complainer should realize that a sandbar probably forms there because of the rock piles, built there to prevent erosion, and eventually help save his/her property. Sandbars occur naturally and are not a township problem. If kids (and dogs) choose to play in the bay, they should be aware of how to handle themselves in the water. Unless of course you want to increase your taxes and pay for bay beach lifeguards.

  7. Upper Township - These clandestine videos of Planned Parenthood are disturbing, gruesome and hard to stomach. As a parent of two beautiful children, I couldn't imagine deciding to end their lives in the womb. I do not understand how human life can be dealt with so cavalierly. How can Planned Parenthood harvest viable organs from unviable tissue masses? We need to reexamine this practice for God's sake.

  8. Avalon - My family, visiting from Santa Barbara, are passionate skateboarders and were looking forward to skating while here. As a resident who thinks Avalon has the best of everything, imagine my shock and dismay when we found the features covered with debris and worse, some were in such disrepair as to be unsafe with nails popping out. It should either be the best or be demolished.

  9. Villas - Are there any laws currently in Lower Township that define problematic rental properties? I know in other areas there are and actions are taken against the property owner. If there are none here, they should be considered. These problematic properties consume resources that could be utilized elsewhere, along with slowing response time for those who rarely need or use police services. It would be interesting to see a 12-month report on multiple police responses to properties by address.

  10. Wildwood Crest - Why are people so inconsiderate when it comes to manners on the beach? Wildwood Crest is an enormous beach. There is absolutely no reason to sit right on top of other people! Keep a minimum of 10 to 15 feet away from others already situated on the beach. Why do people jam in on top of each other, and isn't it common sense not to play ball where people are sitting? I remember when it used to be enforced that all ball playing be kept to the back of the beach. Also, do not feed the seagulls!
