Platelet donors are far and few between, step up and help folks. When/If you need platelets you willRead More be thankful that someone was kind enough to donate for you.

Nice work; congratulations! Becoming an Eagle Scout is difficult due to so many other externalRead More pressures/stress pulling young people in many different directions. It takes dedication and tenacity to get to this level of scouting.

The ACA only covers what you can afford. Even some of the most expensive plans won't cover the bestRead More cancer treatment available, especially certain types of cancer. We will be seeing more and more cases like this poor young man's. I'll be praying for Joe.

Exclude any private beaches from this free clean up. Eff 'em and feed em beans. After enjoying mostRead More of the east coast's wonderful free beaches, the asinine, home rule, New jersey idiocy of paying to go into the ocean shows how backwards this state is. I take much joy that Sophie Bubkus, the litigious old fart from Loch Arbor lost her oceanfront home to Sandy, after spending over a decade in court and hundreds of thousands of her retirement dollars suing to get her second floor ocean view back after a dune was built. Her house was totally destroyed after she won in court and the dune was removed. Well Sophie at least you still got your ocean view. No home but a nice view. Jackass!

Best Day Foundation volunteers teach special-needs children how to surf at Brick Beach III on Sunday (Aug. 4).

What a great organization!

After attending a recent fundraiser for Best Day, that was attended by many children and theirRead More families, my daughter was asked, and had the privilege of volunteering for this event. Nothing prepared her for the feeling she experienced connecting with her buddy. He was non verbal, but VERY independent. The first time he reached for her hand, and accepted her as his buddy, she said it was an indescribable feeling of accomplishment. I truly hope people continue to get behind this organization. The difference it makes in the lives of these children, and their families simply cannot be put into words.

The salary for the mayor's position is $52K as it has been for several years. A mayor can waive theRead More salary if he or she wishes.

@ Knarfie ..they wanted to take an experienced clerk out and put in a non-experienced DEMOCRATE inRead More to the position to pad her pension ...And as far as housing for volunteers into housing is going to bit them in the ass .What happens when you want them to leave and they don't ..??
Sam Foster May 14, 2013 at 04:15 am
Knarfie: You are absolutely right, Knarfie, about Doofus (Ducey) & LIEdecker (Lydecker). ThereRead More is no reason to replace our township clerk. In all my dealings with the clerks' office they have been polite, knowledgeable and professional. Lynnette is a very hard working, professional, nice woman, who does not deserve to be disrespected this way. And what Dems did was just not right. And I am really tired of hearing LIEdecker run her mouth about the clerk's office. When I had a question about an issue in town about a year ago, she told me, just before a caucus meeting, for me to not send any emails or letters to the council because the Mayor could subpoena them. I told LIEdecker I didn't care, because the mayor had every right to know what I said. She then told me to not to say anything in front of the clerk's assistant, the woman who sits next to Lynnette during council meetings. LIEdecker said she was a “spy” for the mayor. Good God, Almighty. Talk about paranoia. It makes me wonder if she should be sent for a psychological exam. Or subjected to random drug & alcohol testing. I wonder what would show up in the test results. I did not view the council meeting that you mentioned because LIEdecker & Doofus make me so sick I am afraid I'll become so ill after watching them that I'll miss work. You are also right about Sangiovanni, who I would not hesitate to vote for rather than Doofus. Remember, everyone: Vote GOP in 2-0-1-3.

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have anRead More average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer. The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path. It starts with building facilities. We need http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com/ Coach Outlet Online to start investing in outdoor courts and indoor gyms for kids to play.

All cancer should have support June 4, 2012 at 12:52 am
Thats great support, to a great cause... To bad the schools sensor what cancer they wants to showRead More support for & "BAN" the ones I guess they dont support ( Live strong " fight Like hell" & I <3 boobies forbidden ) I wish & HOPE that the schools we see & understand Its only " bad" becauses thats the way they view it, Shame on them for senoring which cancer awareness our kids should we aware of & support

It IS Vieno Wurret, NOT Wurrent. You spelled it correctly in the March article. The woman at theRead More very least deserves to have her name spelled correctly. By the way, I posted this last night, instead of correcting her name you deleted my comment. Thanks.
