The column that says there must be a reason everybody bucks traffic on a Friday night to go to Ocean City when a Tuesday afternoon is just as sunny, the air smells just as oceany and the Tuckahoe Inn is not crowded, so maybe it’s the call of the boardwalk and the pizza, but it can’t be Laura’s Fudge because Laura has retired.

Good evening!

Ric Kuhns drew an overflow crowd of supporters at the county freeholder meeting tonight hoping to garner support for the TNVR program for the 25,000 to 30,000 feral cats in Cumberland County, and wouldn’t that kind of a turnout automatically qualify his effort for a $1 million grant from a dozen combined organizations from here to Doris Day’s Foundation.

Today, the Doris Day Animal Foundation is a nonprofit that issues grants to many animal-oriented nonprofit groups, supporting pet food pantries, veterinary care and educational materials.
It also contributes to programs such as World Spay Day, a scholarship at UC Davis for veterinary students and horse rescue and adoption.
In addition, there is the Duffy Day Lifesaving Program, named after one of Day’s own rescue dogs. This program helps defray the costs of veterinary care for aged and special needs pets, and thus spares them from being euthanized.
Ric Kuhns is every bit as passionate as Doris Day. And just as good-looking in the pool, so why not start his own, nonprofit foundation?

Alex Calabrese, call 856-213-5903. He thinks he knows you. You may live on the same block. He may even own the fierce neighborhood dog that plagued your walks.

Maybe not.

You made him laugh with your call to our show last week.

~ Some 20% fewer homeless veterans in Cumberland County from 2016.

~ A 7.9 % increase in homeless.

~ An increase of 67.2% in homeless using emergency shelters.

— Pastor Robin Weinstein,

founder, M25 initiative

“The Wine kittens arrived at the shelter in terrible shape!

“They are suffering from severe Upper Respiratory Infection and eye infections. They are 9 weeks old.

“Cabernet is a torti and Merlot is an orange tabby (the bottle baby that was found with them has been rescued).

NEEDING CARE.

“When you’re building your own business/brand, you’re working at least 12-16 hours every day not even knowing how successful the business will be, the other hours shouldn’t be spent trying to prove yourself to doubters and haters (on Facebook and real life).

“You don’t need to feel the need to waste time proving to people that your risk was the right decision! Reserve your energy and add new energy to your circle!”

— Bryan Real,

Takes A Village

Passed tent revival on East Broad Street tonight, then had to detour at Manheim and wound up passing Pastor Russell Alston’s 40 Bank Street church, where the lights were on and Michael Mickey Williams was preaching his second of eight straight Tuesdays there.

It’s all good at two locations, but will be better when Lernell Williams gets emotional behind a microphone rocks a crowd.
Bridgeton PAL basketball and soccer league sign-ups Friday, 6 to 8 p.m., at the Alms Center.
Get your kid there.
Get your neighbor’s kid there.
When the total reaches 7,000, we’ll know we have all the school kids in the city, at-risk and otherwise, although otherwise is trailing badly right now because of us, not PAL.

BOB HUTCHINGS IN BARCELONA CELEBRATING SECOND PLACE WORLD FINISH WITH HIS U.S. STUDENT-ATHLETE TEAM. HE WANTED TO BE ON 92.1 FM BEFORE HE LEFT, BUT MAYBE WHEN HE GETS BACK.
Can we push unhealthy food in the neighborhood any more than we are?
Can we get the national chains to help us even more? Maybe throw more fat into the meat? More salt on the fries? Are home fries the worst thing we can pile on a burger? Can’t we find something greasier?
How about declaring lard the national food chain champion?
OK, so we’re the unhealthiest county in New Jersey, yet we spend more trying to get our school children to eat healthier, but those ads aren’t TV. It’s hamburgers, hamburgers, hamburgers.
Just like Michael Mickey Williams said about his youth — everybody else was doing drugs and it looked cool, so he did them. too. Just like everybody eating hamburgers — like the 1,050-calorie triple burger at Wendy’s. Get the kids hooked on them for later in life.
What chance does Mayor Albert Kelly have with annual Last To First health walk through the park?

 

 YOU CAN BOOK IT: Can the right fat-free dressing make the right healthy salad No. 1 in the food group?
