What are our desires and expectations for our lives here in Cape May County, whether we live here year-round or only part of the year? The Cape Issues group ponders this every month.
Cape May County was shocked Jan. 21 to learn of the sudden and tragic death of one of her sons, Mike Walter, in a terrible automobile accident while on a golf outing in Myrtle Beach, S.C. with his friends.
From the first job I ever had, working in a Christian bookshop on Mechanic Street in Court House for 50 cents an hour, three hours a day, paid with a silver dollar and a 50-cent piece, to the present, payday has changed in practice and meaning.
Unless you are the rare anomaly, you are surrounded by too much. I don’t just mean stuff (though that is part of it). You have too much going on in your life.
When I can get my wife to write a column, she invariably chooses to write about children, finding lost jewelry, a Christmas trip to visit family, and that sort of thing.
Kelly and Todd love each other as deeply as humanly possible. Married at ages 30 and 50, they live and love to full measure, decade after decade, in their historic, suburban and local beach homes.
We fight to win. Let’s be honest; you don’t fight to lose. Conflict isn’t enjoyable, and if you are the kind of person who LOVES to get in fights… well, you might have issues.
Miraculously I returned to the mission field a few weeks ago by leading an amazing group of 18 people from The Lighthouse Church, a team consisting of a variety of individuals of all ages, to Quito, Ecuador.

As I write this, I see the date, Jan. 9, and I remember. Twenty-six years ago today, my first late husband died at about 7:30. I should know. I lovingly closed his eyes and became his too-young widow after just about a quarter of a century of the best marriage one could wish for.
The homeless population in Cape May County and elsewhere is growing. There are various "camps" that view the problem from vantage points that seem untenable to the others.
For the past several years, because of a practice that I first picked up on from my daughter Abbie, I have chosen one specific word to act as identifying my primary goal and hope for the New Year.

The Cape May County Herald’s news pages exist to accurately cover and impartially analyze events and trends, which impact the lives of our readers.
"Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me." In a grand imagining, with the words of that song echoing in my ears, I envision myself shivering when getting off a sleek jet plane in Pyongyang, North Korea.

The Judean Province where Jesus was born actually lay beneath a double curse. Their primary burden was the fact that the Romans dominated the Israelites in just about every area of their lives.
The taxpaying public knows that there are more efficient ways to perform some public services than via governmental structures.
I just finished a series on a healthy church, and I thought it would be an appropriate time to bring out a letter I received a month or two ago that was filled with some rapid-fire questions about heaven.
Somewhat over a year ago my wife, Patricia, announced to me: "I've had it with television news programs." From that point on, she hasn’t watched a single one.
This final week in our mini-series, we want to talk about how a healthy church and a healthy follower of Jesus must go beyond simply connecting with one another and must connect with the larger purpose of God’s mission.
