  1. Lower Township - The flowerbeds at the entrances of Mitnick and Sandman schools could really use some sprucing up. Has the supervisor ever thought about having a local landscaper do the fronts free with the agreement they can put a small sign advertising their business? This would freshen up the entrances and help the contractor advertise, and show off his or her skills to the public.

  2. Wildwood - I have to agree with the spouter who said that parents allowing their children to opt out of PARCC testing are creating, as he stated, "entitled brats." The way to score high on the test is to be good at basic subjects like Math and English. American students are given a soft ride, and graduation rates are treated as more important than performance. I feel sorry for teachers who are hampered by politically correct, "touchy-feely" regulations that prevent them from getting down to the basics and pushing hard, and even failing kids who don't work up to their capacity. Why fear hard work?

  3. North Wildwood - President Obama and the Democrats are bragging so much about the unemployment rate dropping, yet the number of people on welfare is still over 46 million. That could mean one of three things; the people being hired are already well off, they're not making enough money to get off welfare, or they're hiring illegal aliens or foreign workers and not the Americans who they should be hiring.

  4. Lower Township - It's time to bring back Secretary John Kerry from this comedy of errors, also known as the Obama foreign policy. Send him to his base in New England where he can preach to Bostonians why we need to spend billions more of taxpayer dollars on global warming. Perhaps they'll finally see the light of April sun shining on 40-foot plus mounds of snow. They will have plenty of ammo (snowballs) to fire at this strange-looking dome.

  5. Denns Township - I observed three employees drive up in a trash truck March 27. Two of them got out of the cab and loaded a piece of furniture in the back while the other employee just watched, as there was nothing for him to do. Really? Three guys? That's the best use of time and manpower? What about leaf pick-up, litter pick-up, brush pick-up, pothole repair, building maintenance, etc.? All of these are things that the third guy could be doing instead of standing around.

  6. Villas - Governor Christie, do not do another pension reform bill. Honor the pension bill of 2011, as ordered by the court.

  7. Erma - Twelve years ago, I put in a new septic system at a cost of $13,000 and a new deep well at an additional cost of $3,200. There are costs to have it pumped and maintained, along with electric to run the well pump. It is far from a free ride.

  8. Wildwood - Candidates speak of creating more jobs to boost the economy and reduce the unemployment and poverty rate, yet most of the jobs are low-paying private business, often in companies with mega-rich CEO's who please board members by keeping workers part-time to avoid benefits or any real career, yet some of these business owners would love to see skilled, dedicated, taxpaying public safety and municipal workers who support local business unemployed. With nothing but menial and seasonal jobs, why should young people stay here and continue the family generations? Continue the cycle; collect checks!

  9. Court House - To a North Wildwood spouter: Do you really think someone will volunteer their time to be a police officer and put their life on the line, deal with rule breakers and fight for their life when in that situation? Get a grip and appreciate the law enforcement that makes sure your home is safe every day and night, and is willing to possibly put their life on the line for you 365 days a year.

  10. Ocean City - To the so-called teacher from Dennisville talking about the testing: I do not know one dedicated teacher who agrees with the testing. It is a waste of time. The old testing that took a day or two is fine, but the new testing is taking weeks of education time to take, and even more to prep. The schools are focused on the results of the tests from the first day of school until March. Most teachers I know say they have the end of March until the middle of June to really teach the children.
