The column that says another visit to the new IHOP adjacent to the Ramada Inn produces a new manager with six hours on the job, fresh from 28 years at Denny’s, and we once again talked about the negativity that abounded during the first six months, and he said give us a second chance, and we said go see how Texas Roadhouse takes care of its customers, but he said he doesn’t eat that much meat.

How can you not love IHOP?
Pennsville is begging for an IHOP.
Isn’t it amazing how many eateries there are in western Cumberland County without a chain restaurant?
And how major arteries — traffic — control the placement of restaurants, as if everybody drives down a major highway and happens to see a Texas Roadhouse, etc.
And, yet, Texas Roadhouse in Millville has as many repeat customers as anybody — a lot of them from western Cumberland County.
“Having lunch with the championship Millville football team!
“Great kids and coaches!
“Awesome shout out to Jim’s Lunch for taking care of their check!”
— Shaun Connors
Somewhere, Bob Hogan is wearing his 1975 smile!
More on Shep ringing the Salvation Army bell and collecting SPCA food in Greenwich.
“SPCA was delighted with all the donations!
“I told them Shep sent me!”
— Debbie Ackley,
the Marine Ackmonster’s wife
“Thanks for the birthday poem, Jack!
“My hair wasn’t golden! But, yes, more than a little gray!
“Thank heavens for the Hair Barn!”
— Peggy Gentile-Van Meter
The new Hair Barn where you can see everything from Shiloh Pike.

The final word on education:
“YES, MY FRIEND SHOWED UP TODAY WITH A CHECK.
“ON EDUCATION, SOMETHING I AM SHORT ON. DEFREES DON,T MAKE YOU SMARTER, COMMON SENCE WINS EVERYTIME.”
“The inherent problem with slinging mud for the sake of slinging mud is that you have to get your hands dirty to do it.
“Sometimes, when people are doing such a great job at making a fool of themselves, it’s best to not interrupt. Of course, I should probably take my own advice here, and let the circus takes its course.”
— D. Bailey Miles,
Taking Back Millville
Send in the jugglers, I’m through with the clowns.
Coming from a farm family, don’t pick on the pig.
His only problem is his weight, all you people who live in glass houses.
As a pet, he’s very neat.
And he’s never knocked over three glasses of diet Coke in his pen, like some people in Texas Roadhouse.
“People always have an opinion on why you make the choices in your life.
“Well, I have news for you., You don’t have to understand it if you aren’t a part of it. Who you love, who you decide to be in a relationship with, who you decide to marry … no one’s choice but yours!
“Don’t do something because others will be happy if you won’t be completely satisfied. They don’t have to live with your choice. YOU DO!
— Kelvonne Rhett
Kelvonne will be on stage at the “Put Down The Guns” program at the Frank Guaracini Center at Cumberland County College Saturday night at 6 p.m. arranged by Lawanda Reid.
“As an adult, when you recognize a problem, simply create a solution!
“Fifty local high school kids between BHS and CRHS are cut from the basketball team because they simply were not good enough this year!
“This happens every winter and nothing is done! So, we create a high school league for those kids for the next three months so they have something positive to do!
“Sounds like a simple solution! Stay tuned for an update because a few people think that this solution is a bad idea!”
— John Fuqua
If Albert Morgan says it’s a good idea, it’s a good idea.
If Tom Gramp says it’s a good idea, it’s a good idea.
If Josh Thompson says it’s a good idea, it’s a good idea.
Remember, Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team.
So was Carmelo Anthony.
So was Charles Barkley.
Any feral cat colonies in a community should go through the animal control officer in that community.
The animal control officer in Millville is Anthony Cills.
Will he work with the feral cat activists like happens in Vineland?
Petsmart has been bought out and what will happen to their grants remains to be seen, because the people who worked with those grants for the company have been let go/.
They DID have grants for feral cats, not just owned pets. We didn’t know that.
Will the SPCA assist the Millville City grant writer putting together such a grant, since the SPCA has been successful in obtaining Petsmart grants in the past?
There are a lot of hoops to jump through.
YOU CAN BOOK IT: If the SPCA receives a feral cat, it must keep it for seven days, but then it will give it back to the city it came from without a holding fee, but including any medical attention.
