The column that says if the shoe doesn’t fit and unemployment is down to 6 percent in Cumberland County, it’s time to walk in new shoes, but you keep on walking and soaking up experience like a sponge, and we saw overnight pharmacist Tisha Hickok at Bridgeton Rite-Aide for maybe the fourth time since the News left the city.

Dinner with Glory Days magazine editor Giuseppe Ungaro Tuesday to make sure Somers Point is still there and maybe we’ll ask for the firing of the head coach on Giuseppe’s girls flag football team expected by we fans to compete for the title this season, but this one other team is acting like the New England Patriots with like a 20-game winning streak, like when Washington plays the Phillies, so dinner could get contentious — Joe’s the coach.
Didn’t the Phillies extend a manager’s contract one other time, then get rid of him? But he’s not on shaky ground as much as the Eagles’ head coach, even with the new big back shot. The Pats know when to let somebody go, especially when we could score 18 TDS with that offense.
This is only May and the Eagles are expected to win NOW. The 9-7 predictions were ramped up to 10-4 after the draft and are now 11-5 with a conference title because Wentz is only going to get better while Dak experiences the sophomore jinx, the Giants don’t know what they’re doing and the Redskins have the worst owner in pro football.
So the fans say, force-fed by sports talk radio.
“A parade coming up in Cedarville with no lack of people showing up, just a lack of vets.
“But too many events on the same day. You can’t hit them all. But I’ll be there with Russ DeCamp, even if we are the only two.”
— Cpl. Shep,
Pennsville had a parade Saturday and we’ve seen better attendance at midnight.
Nobody cares anymore, Shep. You’re history. You’re not on sale like the grills at Walmart and you sure as hell don’t taste like a ribeye.
When we went to the Cedarville parade hoping to interview a few veterans in the firehouse after the parade, you rode by in the back of a stake-body standing like Julius Caesar with a cigarette in your mouth, we couldn’t even see the others sitting down, and only a couple showed up at the firehouse, and they wouldn’t talk while Jeff Van Drew was introducing running-mate Audie Murphy.
Where is the honor, Shep? Where is the line you go down like after a wedding to honor the vets, and who reads the list of the locals lost in the wars?
Or did we just have a bad spot watching the parade?
What has happened in Cedarville since Linda Quay isn’t involved, Shep?
In Bridgeton, they don’t like parades anymore. And don’t think people haven’t tried, from the mayor on down to we privates, not to mention organizations.
Invite the VA, Shep! Invite the ones who let the bugs crawl all over the beds in the VA hospital, and the ones who let the vets die waiting for treatment. The ones no one has marched against in this age of marches.
“CCSPCA is looking for help with two feral nursing moms who have been in our care for weeks. Stormy is a beautiful light blue/grey with 5 kittens and Mayflower is an orange and white tabby with 6 kittens. Stormy is currently hissing and running from humans, but was letting us pet her before she delivered. Mayflower will let us tough her briefly. Please contact CCSPCA_rescue@Yahoo.com if you can help with appropriate placement for these families-. Thank you!”

Maria D. Stoerrle has a cat program at the CCSPCA? How come we’ve never met you?
“Well done posting this here in this group. Some people here on this group have colonies, some foster, some only have pet cats and one at least that I know of does not have anything yet, but she has helped others with their colonies.
“As someone who has fostered cats and kittens, it is a rewarding experience. I’ll be the first to admit I have cried more than once giving them up in the end, but I know it help bridge and overloaded system by giving a buffer to save their lives.”
— Gary E. Meyer,
Millville Community Cat coordinator
Stop this getting along right now!
“I really enjoyed listening to the doctor on Saturday. He is a wealth of information. Great show.

Get the Pennsville store on the phone that ALWAYS sells the first sweet corn.
Pennsville Farm Market. They probably plant it inside on Christmas Day.

— Jack Surrency,
Did you mention LaSalle High of Philly was canceled because of the threat of violence?
Did you know we had to talk Coach Jim Horner into bringing his Haddon Heights to Bridgeton for fear of trouble after some clown went on the opposing after an earlier game?
You want to tell us about the good ol’ days in Bridgeton, naysayers? That was 46 years ago, and, yet, you decry the town today?
Not you, Councilman Jack, now running for freeholder.
YOU CAN BOOK IT: We’re open for a two-hour veterans show Saturday, with Kristi Birtch maybe coming on at noon to talk about Warren Robinson as part of it, so don’t say we didn’t ask you, and did you hear those two, huge Marines from the Vineland detachment speak on Saturday from Founder’s Day?
