Six employees had received roughly $17,000 each from the fund, with no clear sense of what they had done to earn the stipend, how their actions could have resulted in equal payments to each, why the city council was not asked to approve the disbursements or how city financial controls would allow Inderwies to twice pay himself a stipend basically on his own authority. 

I am writing to pass along my thanks and congratulations to your staff on a very good run of front page, hard-hitting stories, including your excellent coverage of local police misconduct cases.

To call the events of Jan. 6 a normal day in the Capitol is madness. I hope this helps the deniers. You lost the election and the insurrection.

January 6th is a religious holiday called the Epiphany. Now, we have a new and very different reason to mark this day.

As an English instructor, I take special note of the words. Reading some word-of-the-year choices from 2021, I came across a phrase from the 2020lists that I had missed last year: “Doom scrolling.”

King’s method used nonviolence to put the evils of racism in view before the American public. This is the king of the “I Have a Dream speech. In many ways, he has become more symbol than man.

This is long overdue. There are things that happen in this world that no one can prepare for. It happens and then there is a response.  

My husband Neil volunteers his time to friends to do small jobs around their houses. He enjoys tinkering and creating with his hands and he can usually sort out mechanical problems.

It was with great interest that I read the Herald's lead story on the Wildwood police budget and was shocked by the gross omissions in that story.

As a retired teacher, I read with great interest a recent newspaper article on teaching immigrant students English. English as a second language to many is not new in the U.S. 

Twice in the last six weeks, Middle Township Committee has approved a closed separation agreement with a municipal police officer. The resolution authorizes municipal officials to execute “a settlement agreement and general release” between the municipality and the departing officer.

Why would the police department not want the public to have the information they need to keep themselves and their families safe? We certainly hope it is not concern for the city’s reputation that is being placed above the need for public safety.

Now that he is out of prison, his column is characterized by Old Testament-style judgment of you name it: politicians, preachers, society, American culture... it's a long list.

This county is a $7 billion bonanza for the State of New Jersey. More than $1.5 million in tax revenue per day is generated by the county’s tourism economy.  

As we step away from Thanksgiving Day and move toward the celebration of Christmas, I am considering, as many of us are, all the things I am very thankful for in this life.

Living in Cape May County is such a pleasure. I enjoy getting away occasionally, but not too often.

I think, no,I know this is one of those oft-misunderstood pieces of Scripture debated amongst pastors, and yet much-touted, in this day and age of extreme governmental overreach, empirical mandates, and attacks on our children through perverse educational curriculum.

In January 2020, before the first signs of a coming pandemic hit New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy signed Executive Order 100, which, among other things, directed the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to integrate climate change considerations into its regulatory and permitting programs.

I would like to add my thoughts to a recent letter submitted by Sam Kelly regarding the homeless situation in Cape May County. My focus, in particular, is Rio Grande.
