The column that says you never know who’s coming to 92.1 FM on Saturday at noon, because last week Jim Williams took a turn for the worse and couldn’t call in before passing, and we haven’t heard from West Cumberland Little League since the president popped in to our hospital room in Elmer and said, “I’ll be there.”
By Jack Hummel
Radio: 92.1 FM WVLT Saturdays noon to 2 p.m.

So we got John Paff, the man who specializes in Open Public Records Act requests from municipalities back on 92.1 FM again to talk about how infighting on Bridgeton City Council is not reason to go into executive session.
Some months ago, economic development director Kevin Rabago heard some derogatory comments about not having a plan for the future and remarked that if was going to get raked over the coals, is was going to be in executive session.
But he didn’t and they didn’t have to.
Why can’t we be like Fairfield, where slamming each other is the first order of business and usually leads to a lawsuit.
“The Police Explorers are a group of high school aged students who are interested in a career in law enforcement. We have an album dedicated for the Explorers if you want to see some of the Explorers we have in the program past and present.”

South Jersey Community Reentry Coalition held at Cumberland County College Guest Speakers: Michael (Mickey) Williams Jr., founder Minor Adjustment Program/ Anywhere but Backward & Leslie Bailey, Senior Student/Social Service & Drug Alcohol Certification.
She’s coming on 92.1 FM to talk drugs and alcohol on March 4, at noon.
Jorje Romero and Mike Abbott will definitely be on.
We would like to do a tribute show to Jim Williams, the Cumberland County College sports announcer who we suddenly lost this week after a year of suffering without seeing sunshine.
If you want to call to talk about Jim, please do.

Shep reminisces …
“Robin Roberts was a Phillies pitcher and Grandmom Shep used to cuss like hell when they lost, which was most of the time.
“As for my man Goose (Goslin), got a lot of stuff on him. Last time I saw him, he was sitting on Main Street so drunk he could not find his way back to Bayside.
“I drove him home and walked back to Greenwich.
“When he did move to Roadstown, Pop bought his truck.”
Jim Williams on Jan. 27, 2017 …
“Tomorrow evening marks two weeks since coming to MeadowView Rehab.
“It’s been an interesting 13 days so far. I’ve gone from not walking with a walker to being able to walking down the hall with one, albeit wobbly at times.
“Transferring from sitting to standing is still difficult without some level of assistance. Yesterday, for instance, I couldn’t get from sitting in a wheelchair to standing on a scale without the help of others.
“Oh, by the way, I’m closer to my senior year weight having lost about 10 pounds since being here.
There have been embarrassing moments, to be sure, but the staff here has been accommodating to my needs.
Do I feel stronger? A little, I suppose. Do I notice progression in things? Yeah, I guess. I know this is a process that will take many more days and weeks.
“The support of friends like you and family truly does help more than you’ll ever know.”
— Jim Williams,
CCC Dukes sports announcer hoping to make spring training.
“Shoutout to Millville Target for their donation of a gift card to help us out at Millville Code Blue. They called me today and I went over and picked up the card this afternoon. This will be put to good use next time we have Code Blue.
“Looks like in a week or two we will be getting some more cold weather coming in.
“Don’t forget to support the businesses that help the citizens of Millville. If you go in make sure you let them know how much we appreciate their support of our community!”
— Cindi Stanger Cooke,
Millville Code Blue
“Started off strong and fizzled out running through the trails, lol.
“Used my cool down walk as an opportunity to clean up the park as I walked the paths. I must have picked up at least 20 plastic bottles and aluminum cans.
“Why are people so damn ignorant and dirty? How hard is to take your trash with you or place in a trash can?”
— Jorje Romero
So is Pennsville custard stand, Verona’s in Vineland and Blinker in Millville.
And all people can think about is when the cold will return.
You would have bitched about the taste of the fish and the staleness of the bread when Christ fed the 5,000.
If you’re going to doubt something, doubt the bad stuff.
