  1. Cape May Beach - What happened to being connected from well water to public water by the end of December? I see many have not complied as of yet.

  2. Dennisville - Van Drew, my family is tired of choking on the exhaust fumes year after year from shore traffic grid-locked for miles on SH 83, SH 47, SH 347 and Court House South Dennis Road. All of this endless mess is in your district and hometown, so I am certain you are aware of this traffic fiasco that occurs every weekend, and only gets worse year after year. When is something going to be done before we are all asphyxiated?

  3. Dennis Township - Thank you Herald for your ongoing coverage of Dennis Township Committee meetings. Now, DT residents can make a good comparison to what officials are doing in other communities and what actions are not happening here. For instance, Woodbine has sent out 69 violations for unkempt properties and secured a "Clean Communities" grant from NJDEP for $8,226 to combat litter in the Borough. Avalon just opened a new environmental nature trail using $25,000 of Open Space funds. We sure do have many unkempt properties, tons of litter, and open space in DT. Why no actions?

  4. Stone Harbor - An LA Times article reports widespread cheating by homeowners who defy the state's restrictions on lawn watering because of severe drought. With the possibility of home water use restrictions, why would people prefer a green lawn over limited drinking water? What is this fascination we have with green grass?

  5. Cape May - Although the opinion in an editorial in a daily paper offers questionable arguments supporting self-serve gas, the reality is Senator Sweeney, our most likely next governor in two years, will not allow this bill up for a vote, and wouldn't sign it as governor. His real concern as a Democrat would be job losses, especially in South Jersey, an area already in severe economic decline, which Sweeney represents.

  6. Court House - Reading a spout which criticizes a previous spout by a millennial made me chuckle as a mom of two millennials, who frequently spar with their conservative dad, forcing me to serve as umpire. The spouter citing national polls that show how millennials differ notably from their older conservative peers is correct to point out how this young group feels about social and political matters.

  7. Villas - I agree with the spouters complaining about dogs in Villas. On Weber Ave., it's like a continuous bark-a-thon some days. Dogs are tied up outside or left in fenced yards to bark as early as 6:30 a.m., and some bark all day long.

  8. North Wildwood - The North Wildwood seawall is a wonderful feature of our town! I do think that it is dangerous for people to have dogs on the wall. I saw a little boy almost fall over the side because two dogs started fighting and scared the poor kid. There are conflicting signs about allowing dogs on the seawall. Can someone please tell me once and for all if dogs are allowed?

    Editor's Note: 
    Dogs are permitted on the seawall, according to North Wildwood Police Captain John Stevenson. Here is a link to the ordinance: ecode360.com/8050732

  9. Court House - I saw that Cape May County Freeholders want to get a boat with grant money. It was stated it won't cost the taxpayers anything. Grants are not free, they cost for all of us. Who will pay for the fuel, staffing, maintenance, training, etc.? I am sure the State Police and Coast Guard are more than capable of patrolling the waterways.

  10. North Wildwood - I thought they might have passed a new ordinance in North Wildwood allowing alcohol on the beach. It sure looked like it this past Memorial Day weekend. Everyone, including large groups of teens, were freely consuming out in the open. The police came if they were called, but there was no presence to deter the bad behavior. What a mess. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.
