  1. Ocean City - A lot of times, when certain "taxpayers" spout off, I detect a twinge of jealousy in their spouts. For instance, the spout about the Avalon employee who takes a borough truck home to Cumberland Co.; depending on his assignment, hours and possibility of being called out, it may actually make good sense for him to drive that truck home. Not all government jobs are "ice cream and cake" jobs, and being called in to work for urgent matters at all hours of the day/night, on overtime, is a reality, and for years, managers have weighed the pros and cons of take home vehicles for certain employees.

  2. Lower Township - "The innocent victims of crime have been overlooked, their pleas for justice have gone unheeded, and their wounds, personal, emotional and financial, have gone unattended." This goes for all ages; child, teen, adult or elderly. It is a disgrace how the justice system and DCF turn their backs on the victims and put them back in harm's way; even with all the evidence, they dismiss it. How many more victims are going to suffer from the courts' and DCF's ignorance?

  3. Wildwood Crest - I used to share the "Most Wanted" on Facebook. It was a great tool for the public to help out. Why did the Herald stop allowing us to share these things several weeks ago?

  4. Cape May - Can someone explain to me why the Coast Guard Base hires private security? Isn't it a military facility? Can't the military provide their own security? I don't understand why they need to hire retired prison guards and police. What happened to military police? How is this fiscally responsible? These are our tax dollars, seemingly being squandered.

  5. Avalon - The CEOs of the corporations in the 10 biggest U.S. merger deals this year will rake in a combined estimated $430 million in "golden parachute" payments, according to a study by pay-tracking firm Equilar. It would take the typical American household 830 years of work to get what the average CEO will receive in one fell swoop. If corporate taxes are too high, how can corporations afford to pay these CEOs such excessive and extravagant amounts of money, and how can they afford to pay CEOs, on average, 300 times what the average worker makes, compared to 30 times a few decades ago? It's obscene.

  6. Rio Grande - Work, where? My kids had to leave the area to find jobs. The powers to be do not want industry in Cape May County. Only tourism, retirement and nursing homes. Few jobs pay $12/hour, most pay less. Cost of living keeps going up and few jobs get a cost of living raise. Housing is only for the ones who can afford $300,000 to qualify for a mortgage. I have eight vacant properties in my neighborhood, all under $200,000. They won't sell because the Middle Township Code Enforcement Office tells me they have too many properties to keep track of. What does that tell you?

  7. Rio Grande - Is it true that a pool and clubhouse are being built at the affordable housing in Rio Grande?

  8. Villas - VA disability is not taxed federally or locally. You do not have to be injured on active duty, but can collect if your disability was caused by your service and is approved by the VA. It's a very long and arduous process. It took me over two years to reach the benefit stage. The Affordable Care Act bases subsidies on taxable income only. Military pensions are taxed federally, as they are considered ordinary income, and in some states, taxed locally, but not in N.J.

  9. Stone Harbor - The convenience of shopping local is being able to park near the stores and not having to walk a mile through the mall parking lot in the cold on Black Friday. This is not the case in Stone Harbor. Please close 96th Street from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Black Friday. The store employees will take all the parking spaces as they do every year, and those of us who are there to shop will have no place to park.

  10. Lower Township - There's been some past articles in the newspapers describing a bike/walking path that extends from somewhere north of Lower Twp., possibly Court House, all the way to the Ferry terminal. I can plainly see where a new section of path was constructed a year or two ago, from the railroad tracks on Rt. 109 to Seashore Rd. What I don't see is where the path runs from Seashore Rd. to the Ferry terminal. There's virtually nowhere to safely ride a bike and certainly not to walk along Rt. 109 in that area. If there is a path in that area, it'd probably be a good idea to post some signs.
