Good evening!

Did you know that air conditioner techs are not allowed to work outside while it’s thundering?

Isn’t it great that the thermostat was inside?

How much of your property do you own vertically?

The top of your tallest tree?

How high could build on your property? A replica of the 555-foot Washington Monument?

Could you declare a no-fly zone for crop dusters?

Some day, it could become important.

Darla from Secret Sauce is doing a special performance at 7 p.m. next Saturday at the Bait Box.
Her and two band members will be provide us a great night of music!
But don’t talk behind her back!
“Thank you Lord for the privilege of serving our brothers and sisters from the community.
“God Bless those who were able to serve at The Bethany SDA Sunday Soup Kitchen.”
— Mayor Albert Kelly
A lot of people talk the talk.
Not everybody walks the walk.
This girl does not belong in red-neck Cumberland County:
We relocate. I have a humane mouse trap. If I have a mouse and he goes in, I take him, or her, for a little ride down the road to a field and a pond. I also leave him, or her, some peanut butter crackers to get him started in his new home.”
— Gail Ward
“Pebbles is beginning to wonder why no one has come to her rescue. And quite frankly, so are we. She has a great temperament, great with kids. No cats though. Please continue to share her for a home. Fosters also welcome. ”
— Pennsville Animal Shelter

Cumberland County top law enforcement. Special congratulations to Bridgeton’s Ret. DET. Charlie Leyman.

CC Prosecutor Webb-McRae, Bridgeton PD LT Speranza,, Vineland PD Police Chief Codispoti, Millville PD Police Chief Farabella, CC Sheriff Austino, and CC Under Sheriff Santiago.



On Aug. 17, the Atlantic City (Atlantic County) Council, by a 7 to 2 vote, approved a $75,000 settlement to resolve a lawsuit brought by an Essex County man who said that he was beaten and falsely arrested by police after a bouncer removed him from a casino nightclub.

“This has been a difficult summer for our dogs. It’s been really tough to find placement for many of our urgent dogs and I want to make sure we are all doing all that we can give them every opportunity possible.

“I’m looking for a volunteer team of strong dog handlers to help me interact with and take pictures and videos of our urgent dogs.

“Current CCSPCA volunteers are welcome and I’d love to have some new folks on board, too.

“This is really important, as kitten season is still eating up tons of time and my schedule will only become more limited when school starts up again.

“Email me at CCSPCA_rescue@yahoo.com smile emoticon:). Thanks!”

— Gail Ward
