  1. Tuckahoe / Ocean City - Why is the Tuckahoe Fire company having a benefit? I bet it is because the amount of money they receive from public funding is not enough to sustain the expenses involved in running and equipping a modern volunteer fire company. That includes not only apparatus, tools and equipment, but also social functions and amenities that are used as incentives to make people want to participate in such a dangerous and time consuming avocation free. Without fundraising, volunteer fire companies couldn't provide the level of service that they do. Have you thought about volunteering?

  2. Ocean City - As a former public employee, the spouts concerning public pensions bother me. Yes, tax money does make up a portion of the pension, but that money is supposed to be wisely and prudently invested by the state, the same as many private sector businesses invest money to contribute to employee pensions. One of the main incentives to become a public employee has been a secure and reasonable pension. If we continue to de-incentivize public employment, how will we fill the jobs on which we have come to depend; police, sanitation, education, etc.? Blame the investors.

  3. North Wildwood / Villas - We attended and enjoyed the Mummers Parade in North Wildwood Sept. 6, but who forgot to open the parade with a color guard and an American flag? Veterans groups, police departments, fire companies, fraternal organizations, etc., would all be proud to serve in this capacity.

  4. Lower Township - What could possibly be going on in the National Felons League (NFL)? People are saying we need to talk about domestic violence. I say open your ears and buy a police scanner. You'll find a large chunk of time is spent on domestic violence calls. How long can you babysit this dysfunctional element permeating throughout our society?

  5. Court House - As a life long resident of Cape May County, I have seen so much change; some good and some really bad. When I read this forum, it saddens me to think what is happening all around us and no one seems to mind. Political parties bashing one another, school board members who freely give up time out of their lives being attacked for doing what the public wanted in the first place, county agency's not helping those in need, but yet advertise as if they do, and on and on. Doesn't anyone see the hungry in our county? Doesn't anyone see the homeless right under their noses? What about the children?

  6. Dennis Township - Who else has noticed recent letters to the editor in newspapers attacking the Atlantic prosecutor for his trying to keep our children safe from out-of-staters who bring guns into New Jersey against our strict gun laws? Do you really suppose there isn't some organized lobby group behind such letters, attempting to remove that prosecutor? Gun owners, of course, are hopeful this may work.

  7. Avalon - Women in Frank LoBiondo's voting district should know of his vote Sept. 11 against a bill to ensure health care laws do not result in gender bias, such as higher premiums for women or being denied pregnancy care. LoBiondo sided with over 200 other Republicans to defeat this attempt to prevent gender discrimination against women.

  8. Stone Harbor - A town surrounded by water should have a marine unit, correct? Six people were saved Sept. 11, but the police can't count on the presence of a good Samaritan at every water rescue.

  9. Villas - Why don't people use the tongs provided by the store to pick out their rolls? Very scary.

  10. Middle Township - Middle Township schools may want to rethink their efforts to increase school enrollment. The last thing we need are overcrowded schools again or to attract the wrong kind of students. There are some students Middle schools are simply better off without. Middle schools need to stop trying to change things that don't need to be changed. If enrollment is down, it is not because of a lack of electives or the type of school schedule. The real reason enrollment is down is due to some of the students already enrolled that cause nothing but problems.
