  1. North Cape May - There should be some sort of crosswalk at Old Mill and Bayshore roads. Kids try to cross the street often and speeding drivers have no concern for the speed limit, human life or rules of the road. Someone is going to get seriously injured, or worse, all for the sake of getting somewhere one minute faster or reading a text.

  2. Cape May - Maybe the courts have it right after all, that requiring all towns in our state to provide affordable housing might lessen the racial divide in our country in the long run. As a senior citizen, I can't remember a time in our past here where social tensions have been as high as now, and I wonder if the TV media, especially, is largely to blame.

  3. Court House - What's wrong with creating government jobs for people who are already collecting a check for doing nothing? Elected officials should govern their area of responsibility as a head of the household would govern their home. Public works and beautifying the surroundings would be a great place to start.

  4. Avalon - Environmental experts get paid $130,000 to study Armacost Park and come up with recommendations. Birding experts, with nothing to gain financially, present an opposing view on what is best for the birds; they say vines and understory promote habitats for resident birds, much needed food for migratory birds and a critical alternative nesting option. Parks are for people; a sanctuary/ refuge is for birds, but birds can't pay experts to put forth their agenda. When the birds are gone, it will be a sterile, manicured park worthy of a golf course community. Is that really what we need or want?

  5. Ocean City - In life, we all have to play with the hand that we have been dealt. Since the turn of the last century, tourism raised its ugly head in southern New Jersey. It soon outgrew farming and fishing as the cornerstone of our economy. Many big-box stores can only afford to stay open year-round because of the profits they produce during the three-month tourist season. A Lower Twp. spouter stated, "Trying to base an economy on a three-month tourism season is dumb," and that may be true, but it is irrevocable. No barrier island homes, motels, bars, etc., no money.

  6. Ocean City - The Avalon, "anti-gun" spouter is criticizing the "...let the crime occur and then punish the criminal" approach. Well, it is true, none of us want to see the crime occur to begin with, but gun control will not change humanity's tendency toward violence. Guns may facilitate violence, they don't cause it. Human nature does that. It is only by strictly enforcing and punishing gun criminals that we can hope to have any kind of deterrent of gun violence. Mass shootings are tragic and get much news time, but it is the thousands of inner-city gun murders that are the real tragedy.

  7. Wildwood - It's unusual for once that the Arab countries are taking their fight to ISIS in Yemen, instead of expecting us to offer our young servicemen to fight their battles. We have sacrificed our precious lives and trillions of dollars for involvement in that region, and still, chaos prevails. Let them do their own fighting in their backyard.

  8. Wildwood - A Goshen spouter sure does have Utopian ideas. Of course, in typical Utopian/liberal fashion, he/she neglects to consider who is going to pay for all of this. Most of us have a hard enough time paying for our own healthcare and education because so much of pour money is taken in taxes to pay somebody else's way. I believe in charity, but I have gotten worn and tired of paying for drones who are of sound mind and body, yet refuse to contribute.

  9. North Wildwood / Philadelphia - The Iranians and Iraqis are fighting ISIL, the Saudis are fighting the rebels in Yemen and the Muslim nations, such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt, are discussing the formation of an Arab military unit to handle violent breakouts in the region. Amazing, isn't it? Once we pull out our people, the region decided it's a good idea to handle their own problems. Shame we didn't learn this from the Vietnam war.

  10. Wildwood - Why are the City of Wildwood commissioners holding their meetings at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoons during the middle of the work day, in the middle of the work week? I'm sure there are plenty of working professionals who would like to attend, but can't afford to take time off from their jobs to do so. Please consider moving the meetings, especially budget meetings, to a reasonable time to maximize taxpayers' opportunity to attend.
