The column that says when they run out of large salad containers at Wendy’s, you know the apple pecan chicken salad is selling like crazy, or is it the citrus salad, but all we know 15 vehicles were in the drive-thru line Wednesday at dinner time, so the large containers were gone. but they gave us two halves, but charged only for a large.

Ric Kuhns continued his spay/neuter journey today …
“With an afternoon in the pool to think about it, I’m more than just a little pleased with the progress of the Bridgeton meeting.
“The people we talked to today are in two of the make or break positions as far as how successful a program can be, and that both Chief Mike Gaimari and ACO Billy Knipe are both just the right type of people needed in those positions.
“So, of the five county municipalities in which I’ve observed the TNVR introduction, I think Bridgeton has the best pieces in place to be successful right from the word go. I’ll do whatever I can to make that happen for them.”

“Since Wednesday night, we have transferred 27 cats/kittens to rescue/shelter partners, placed 15+ in foster care, and have another 23 cats/kittens pending rescue.
“Since the need was so urgent, we combo-tested many of them without reimbursement from donors/rescues. While we wish we had limitless funds, we currently medicating over 80 animals per day.
“Please help us keep up this pace by making a donation to cover a combo test. $25 covers one test, but a donation of ANY amount is so greatly appreciated! Thank you.”

These lifesaving efforts can be costly. Multiple tests, vaccines and medications are often required in order for an animal to be accepted into rescue in addition to the costs of traveling.

On the Bridgeton appearance front …
“You don’t have to be a high school graduate TO PICK UP TRASH. As I was driving down Pearl Street, I was seeing everybody sitting on their front porches and on the railings as trash was just laying all in their yards. MAKES ME SICK!”
— Reva Christian
How many front yards, Reva?
Since the advent of the red and blue trash buckets, we’ve noticed an improvement in the trash situation and remember a promise by Dean Dellaquila, of public works, when he was selling the recycling program that “we’re going to clean up this town.”
That hasn’t happened, Reva, or are you just not aware of that effort by Dellaquila? Not too long ago, trash littered the streets because we had those little, green, square recycling buckets that held nothing. Bottles blew down the street.
We had a man come to city council who told of a neighbor throwing his garbage out a window on to his property.
At one time, the city didn’t know who to go after, the tenant or the landlord, when it came to citing trash in a yard. At least it brought trash to the forefront.
Before we forget, we want to talk about the string of buildings on West Main Street in Millville that have beautiful new exteriors. We don’t know who owns them, but they are a credit to the community.
“How the hell can parents think it’s OK to smoke weed in front of their kids, with their kids? I just don’t get it. And if you think this is a rare thing, you have no idea how bad it’s getting.
“Please mark my words … Please! America’s ignorance to what marijuana has become will become its Trojan Horse. You’re Kids Are Being Targeted, America, and you’re not even paying attention!
“100,000 people are going to DIE this year to an overdose! You think I give a crap about being politically correct and professional when it comes to THIS PANDEMIC? Well, I DON’T!
“Love AA, love SMART Recovery, love NA, love Celebrate Recovery, love whatever fellowship you need to find to find a life free from addiction. But what this post is about, and what I can’t stand, are the fake people in this movement and in this fight that do it for money, do it for notoriety and do it for fame, yet they can sleep at night with their ringer off when these kids are back on the streets killing themselves.”
— Michael DeLeon,
BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT?
“Congrats to CCC alumnus Will Latcham on being drafted by the Cardinals.
“Also a great accomplishment for our Head Coach, Keith Gorman, the coaching staff, volunteers, and all others who helped him get there.”
— Prez Yves Salomon-Fernandez
YOU CAN BOOK IT: You never know what people are thinking, but, most of the time, it won’t make any difference.
