Let’s agree that some of those who went to Washington were there for insurrection they proudly said so on any media interview they could find.

The highway network into and out of Cape May County, from the Gloucester/Cumberland/Salem Counties has needed upgrading for years.

I begin by extending my thanks to certain members of the Republican Party. Those who continue to advocate a common-sense conservatism while conducting themselves with a sense of decorum.

I am a Republican and resident of Cape May County. I am once again disappointed and dismayed at the blind fealty of Congressman Jeff Van Drew to President Trump. He should well know that there was no significant irregularity in the recent election in any state.

As we say goodbye to our 45th President, we should honestly evaluate his influence on our nation over the past four years. 

When thousands of people assemble to attack, in some minds, it’s called first amendment. Wrong, and in the case of Jan. 6, it’s called insurrection. 

I asked a young mother from our church to explain to you where she gets the strength to cope with all the stresses of her life.

I am the chaplains of Cape May American Legion Post 193 and Cape May VFW Post 386, and would be remiss, especially in these days of history being tossed aside, if we did not commemorate the selfless acts of the Four Chaplains on February 3rd, 1943.

In my opinion, U.S Rep. Van Drew needs to resign his public position due to his anti-constitutional, anti-democratic and anti-American behavior. 

This is the time of the year when many churches are asked to their annual reports together.

The reason we have over 350,000 Covid deaths in the U.S. is that we don’t have and never had any real leadership. The leadership we elected four years ago campaigned using smoke and mirrors. 

I was aghast at how a letter writer was treated by underpaying her property taxes by $2, forced to pay a late fee of $42.01.

If we, Americans, still stand for truth and justice under the rule of law as a democratic nation where the voters decide our future, then President Donald Trump needs a good crack on the knuckles.

Even after the mob stormed the doors of the Capitol building, Jeff Van Drew continued to vote not to accept the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

I want to applaud Congressman Van Drew for having the courage to vote against certifying the Electoral College results.

As Jesus' believers and disciples, we have already been called to run a specific race that God has set before us.

This election has been an eye-opener in many ways. Here are a few that have occurred to me.

What is America? Never having the benefit of a civics lesson, most today would likely say it’s a country bordered by oceans and includes a collection of states. 

As the year comes to a close, we can all agree that it has been a challenging year for us to endure. The holidays have always been a special time for my family and me.

I can honestly admit that 2020 was the most challenging year I have ever navigated, and there is no doubt I would not still be standing in one piece without the Lord. 

I am a lifetime resident of Cape May County who has always been responsible for paying my bills and have been an asset to the community.

This year has been one crisis after another, where God exposed us with the intent of humbling us.

On June 28, 1787, Benjamin Franklin, a leader of the America Enlightenment, as well as a successful businessman, scientist and diplomat, made a most remarkable speech to the assembled delegates at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Franklin called for prayer.

For everything I am not, one trait I have is God gave me a lot of volume when projecting my voice. 

Recent comments by Rudy Giuliani made me write regarding his insensitivity, his attitude, the president's attitude, and many politicians' attitudes towards this pandemic.

One of my favorite holiday tunes is “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” but this year, amid a global illness surrounding us with fear, being merry while others struggle for life and a return to health seems a bit superficial.

The progressive wing of the Democratic Party is urging President-elect Joe Biden to issue an executive order early in his administration to eliminate up to $50,000 of student loan debt per borrower.

Publisher Art Hall’s recent editorials stating “they” must come together, indicating each side as a warring camp seeking a win, demonstrates the total lack of the fourth estate of informing the people.

I wish to point out the absurdity of national GOP hacks by using two of them: Sidney Powell and Roger Stone, a college graduate with no degree. 

We have consolidated technical education into one building - Cape May County Technical High School - and left the academic training in local communities

When you pastor the same church for nearly 24 years, you can’t get away with, what we ministers call, “recycled sermons.”

The ordinance eliminating invasive species in Cape May has been withdrawn from consideration. I would like to use this letter as a step towards educating the public on the danger of invasive species plants to the environment.  

It’s comforting to know that the Democrats are, again, in charge of our government.

I saw so many nice blessings in the last few weeks.

When you go into select local stores and see a $1 sign on the Herald, that is because that store is working with us to help finance our costs.

When I was a new Christian living in northern New Jersey, I would listen daily to Family Radio, an FM radio station.

I like to joke that being a Libertarian is like being a Jets fan. It’s easier to enjoy the playoffs if you were never a contender.

Recently, my husband, John, and I went looking for a small tree to put on our back deck on the bay, near the Wetlands Institute, to give thanks and embrace the holiday season, but 2020 is not like other years.
