The column that says thank goodness for people like waitress Sydney at DiLisi’s, who only could not figure out why everybody among the kitchen staff wanted the Patriots to lose, but didn’t know what “first down” meant, and was dutifully attending to all her customers while her boss had been at Lincoln Financial Field since 1 p.m. Sunday while mentioning her othe place of employment — Hope Chest — has 6,000 followers on Facebook and also that her parents think a Pizza Plaza 40th Reunion is a great idea, but, right now, Eagle Mania must be served, and we wonder if anybody just goes to tailgating all day, and then goes home.

Anybody else besides Gary E. Meyer couldn’t hear Saturday’s show on 92.1 FM with Bruce ACO Barry?
“Trying to listen live from your website as I am out of the area and the link http://www.wvlt.com/listenlive.htmlshows nothing to even clock on to listen as I have done previously.
It’s the Russians again, Gary!
They’re been pouring money into other radio accounts. Full Senate investigation coming.
We can tell you this, Gary Bruce ACO Barry didn’t leave anything on the field Saturday as he spelled out what is going to happen in the county with the SPCA and what could and could not happen.
The man is an animal titan!
For safety’s sake …
“The stop sign at Newport Rd & Cedarville Rd is a STOP SIGN!
“The people who are using it as a yield, even when a emergency vehicle is upon them, are risking their lives as well as ours and the people we are responding to help!
“Is it really worth the 5 seconds you are saving?”
— Brian Scarlato
If the Cumberland County SPCA cruelty investigators are trained to carry firearms — but don’t — how long will it be in this crazy world before some homeowner is tired of everything he’s dealing with and acts out simply because a cruelty agent is approaching his house?
And the whole county goes into mourning and people cry for change, but a good life is lost forever?
Arm them! As a deterrent! Is there any difference between serving a warrant and answering an animal cruelty call? And we’ve learned what can emerge during a warrant serving.
On the substance abuse front …
“One of the most difficult weeks in the last 10 years! So hard, so sad. I know 7 people who died this week to addiction.
“I worked with 3 people to find treatment who all refuse to go. I have families asking me how to help their kids who refuse to face reality.
“I saw someone relapse after 9 years of Recovery. I see so much infighting and backbiting within the Recovery Advocacy movement and SOOOO Many zealots pointing people to the pharma-path of freedom while they replace therapy and counseling with a pill and a swig.
“I’m watching our Government completely fail families in America with rhetoric and pittance funding and the media lie to people about what’s happening.
“I don’t WANT a break, but I guess I NEED a break. I’m going to take the next week to convince 5,000 People of Faith to start Living their faith when it comes to the nation’s Addiction Pandemic. I believe it’s our Only Chance! I really do! #HigherPower#GodHelpUs #Pharmageddon #Recovery #RecoveryArmy#KLoveCruise2K18 #GodistheAnswer.”

Michael, Inspira opening 20 detox beds this month! For heaven’s sake, talk to John DeAngelis!
Cedarville suddenly hungry for Girl Scout cookies!
Oh to own a log cabin in the woods!
Philadelphia media going crazy over the $$ to be made between now and the Super Bowl. Advertisers will go crazy! Anybody want to go on WVLT Saturday between noon and 2 p.m.?
JT Burks, the Millville man interested in everything for youth, will be on Saturday at noon, hopefully followed by Maria Stoerrle, of Second Chance for Animals, talking about her program for seniors.
Sudden thought: Did anybody schedule a year in advance a fundraiser for tonight?
The results would be worse than those in a blizzard.
It’s an Eagles blizzard!
A little history
One year ago today in this space
Never buy lunch for a group until they explain to you how to fund Main Street, because they won’t talk with their mouths full, and they’re always full.
As we said before, if the purpose of Main Street is to improve the economic condition of the downtown, how can you attract visitors without an advertising budget?
The city doesn’t have money to give to the library, let alone Main Street. The state doesn’t have any money.
If there were a federal grant, we would have had it by now.
So do we do it from within? Do we do it with community money when few people seem to care, except where one-day events are involved?
Being the biggest historic district — 2,200 properties — in the state gets us what?
Having a 1,100-acre city park with a zoo and a lake that needs to deepened to prevent recurring bacteria has gained us a wonderful splash park, and guardrails blocking trails preventing motorists from trashing the woods.
The zoo is a gem, and only getting better, thanks to the Cohanzick Zoological Society.
Veterans Park is a serene, monument-filled setting fully appreciated only during patriotic holidays.
The Donald Rainear Amphitheater begs for folk music to entertain the visitors from the self-contained, self-regulated, self-policed Recreational Vehicle Campground suggested for north of the lake.
YOU CAN BOOK IT: It’s been a good weekend!
