What word, after seven months, is more descriptive for what is happening to my country at the southern border than stupidity?  

If anyone needs to rethink their stance on placing wind turbines off the Jersey coast, it would be those who are pushing such a foolish venture.

Have you ever seen what we're seeing now and since 2016 to now? Can you trust these people to uphold our country and democracy: Rudy Giuliani, Bill Barr, and Tucker Carlson? 

There is a great debate raging in the nation, including here in Cape May County, over the issue of critical race theory (CRT).

My neighbor moved permanently to Florida a few months ago. Shortly after, his house was to be occupied with new tenants.

I’m writing to alert my neighbors in Wildwood Crest about a sad phenomenon that has happened three times to my garden.

New Jersey voted for Joe Biden hoping that he was a moderate centrist whose 40-plus years of experience and foreign policy experience would make him a far better President than Donald Trump with all his mean tweets.

For when they say “peace and safety,” sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

I was recently admitted to an area hospital for a sudden illness that occurred, requiring an ambulance ride to the facility. Upon arrival, I was taken to the fast-track area, where I would be cared for by an excellent registered nurse. 

It is kind of ironic... a bunch of White people discussing racism - an issue we will probably never ever experience, but I feel compelled to disagree with some of the statements made by Mr. Monzo, whom I like and respect.

I am writing to give a "big shout out" about how grateful I am to the amazing entire Beach Patrol team on duty at Stone Harbor's 83rd Street beach access point.

I agree with U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew. “It’s a time of great concern.” 

In a recently published Op-ed by Tony Monzo titled, “Critical Race Theory in Public Schools: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion - a Trojan Horse,” Mr. Monzo claims that educating our youth about systemic prejudices is “Marxism.”

Sixty-one years ago, in 1960, the Sea Isle City Beach Patrol (SICBP) doubles crew of Hugh Bowen and Dale Bonsall placed first in the South Jersey Lifeguard Championships.  

When people complain about their families, the most common response I hear is, “You can’t pick your family.” How true for blood relatives.  

A fatal accident involving a motor vehicle and a bicyclist in Stone Harbor tragically brought home a growing problem that we have been unable to deal with.

In response to Mr. Monzo and his comments that the state's new law regarding teaching diversity in our schools is a Trojan horse is without any basis.  

The New Jersey Legislature and governor have decreed nine days of early voting in New Jersey, starting this fall. From Oct. 23-31, Cape May County voters will have the option to vote early in person at one of three early voting centers being set up at county library branches in Lower, Middle and Upper townships.

Over the years, I have used this medium to express my dislike for many things.

Human life must be protected and respected from the moment of conception. Abortion is a violation of the rights of our youngest members of society and the human family. 

In my last column, I asked readers to watch for God’s blessings in their lives, and I hope they've seen His hand working around them.

I’m writing to ask for the support of all Cape May County employees as I run for president in the upcoming officer’s election for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Union Local 3596 this September.

Governor Phil Murphy has set a goal for 7500 megawatts of offshore wind-generated electricity by 2035. It is an ambitious goal. It is also a goal that leaves little time for the niceties of public engagement and dialogue. The state clearly showed that it has a plan, and it is going to implem…
