  1. Erma - A cashier attempted to charge me $14 for an order than was $10 before tax (according to their posted prices). Her response was "they raised their taxes." Not sure if this deceptive practice was dictated by the owner/manager or just the cashier's idea. Customers, be on guard.

    Editor's Note: 
    If you suspect deceptive behavior by a cashier, demand to see the business' manager. If you're not satisfied by the manager's response, pursue other avenues of address, commensurate with the level of offense - e.g., consumer protection agency or police.

  2. Green Creek - Every year we tip the trash and recycling collectors. This year was the Friday before Christmas. After the recyclables were collected on the Saturday after Christmas, the street was littered with recycling material. We picked ours up and then saw the glass in the street from the bottles they dropped. This had to be swept up before cars ran over it all. As we looked up and down the street, we saw the whole block was littered and as we turned the corner, that street was the same. So we will save some money as next year by foregoing the tipping.

  3. Stone Harbor - Why do a few Stone Harbor spouters express concern with Avalon's Mayor's tenure and council actions? What's the problem? Avalon has an excellent public safety building, a five star library returning monies to our town not the county, one outstanding 911 memorial, a beautiful Veterans plaza, community center over 50 years old which still is the best on the island and active year-round, seven days a week, dedicated municipal employees in all departments, plus much, much more. We are very happy here just take care of your town. Our Mayor and council are doing fine work.

    Editor's Note: 
    This spout was submitted with Stone Harbor town, but seems to read like its from Avalon. Hmmmmm???

  4. North Wildwood - Well now that the mid term elections are over, the jv team of Isis is folding up like a cheap suit with none of our troops on the ground . The Ebola panic proved unwarranted. The "hack attack" has been quelled by us shutting down North Korea's Internet. Okay, what and when will the wing nuts trump up some other apocalyptic disaster to try and print out we have the "wrong" person in the White House? Oh, forgot to mention that chess player Putin is on his heels too.

  5. Villas - I think the Editor misunderstood the Spout-off about the re-gifting and giving back old gifts that were given by the worker years ago to his customer. The worker does not have a bad attitude toward his customers. He would just rather not get a gift at all than to have his rejected gifts re-gifted back to him.

    Editor's Note: 
    If that be the worker's meaning and desire, the worker might adopt a mutual no-gifting policy with his customers, to alleviate potential embarrassment or disappointment.

  6. Wildwood - What an admirable example those cops at the funeral set for our young people by turning their back on the city mayor. The message is clear and pointed, that it's okay to disrespect authority. Worse, some out-of-town cops participated. Supervisors should put a reprimand in their file Monday morning. Now, our kids can follow their example of disrespecting authority, including police.

  7. Stone Harbor - To the 'We debate' Spouter: Are you kidding? When's the last time you heard a serious debate on anything from this council? This is the most NON transparent council ever. Rich, Lane and Kramer are the worst offenders. It's their way or the highway! Go to an Avalon meeting, it's much different..and the Stone Harbor Mayor is a fence rider..never commits and will say anything to appease. And she never follows up on anything. We need a good Mayor here; the one that we have just doesn't cut it. It's 2015 and we need new blood. Her past mistakes have cost us millions.

  8. Wildwood - Wildwood must have leadership with ideas and vision beyond city property sales and purchasing used vehicles and equipment. Selling off assets and buying used junk is not how to manage a city, a business, even a household.

  9. Middle Township - When the kids opened their presents last year, we thought the toys and games could not get any cheaper in their construction. Boy, were we wrong. What these toy companies are doing is disgraceful. It's one thing to take hard earned money from people who are struggling and deliver a product worth the money. These products are not even worth half of what they are priced out at. Why?!

  10. Wildwood - We have lived in Wildwood and owned a business here for 60 years. In the last 20 years it has gone down the drain thanks to the BLT Team. Wildwood, if you care about your town then it’s time to get rid of the BLT Team. We need a mayor that will cater to the residents, not his friends and family.
