Whether to support Trump
Updated: February 26, 2020 - 8:49 am

Hold onto your hats. I’m going to vote to reelect Donald Trump as president. If you know me at all, you’ll know I’ve been a Democrat most of my life. I voted for Al Glore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. I marched in anti-Iraq war protests and wrote columns for another newspaper critical of President George W. Bush. So, why would I vote for Trump?

‘Clubs’ not a model for alcohol in Ocean City
Posted: February 26, 2020

This Ocean City Dinner “Club” phenomenon is a mess! Kudos to the Sentinel for the ongoing coverage of the story.  The “clubs” are not going away, seem to be getting more pervasive and the issue needs to be formally addressed by town government.  It should not be ignored.

Welcome to the Party, Van Drew – now go home
Updated: February 07, 2020 - 9:28 am

When I decided to run against Rep. Jeff Van Drew in New Jersey’s Second District, he was one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the House. Republicans attacked him as a socialist who leaned too far left for a district that supported President Trump by nearly 5 points in 2016. So imagine my surprise when Mr. Van Drew reinvented himself as a Republican last month.

When folks talk about where they would like to retire, New Jersey is rarely on anyone’s list. Not that there is anything terribly wrong with our state, it’s just an expensive place to live. A poll last weekend ranked New Jersey 47th on a list of places to retire.

You may have noticed our little Cape May Acme recently installed another row of self-service checkout machines. I have seen a number of people being instructed in their use by employees. I assume these folks don’t shop at the North Cape May Acme or Rio Grande ShopRite, where the machines have been in use for years.
