Good Bye .....Charlie Nash, a long time Gloucester City community activist passed away last week at the age of 81.. Charlie was a fighter and if he saw something wrong in our community he didn't hesitate to speak his mind and work to correct the problem. Today there are fewer and fewer residents like him who really care what happens to our beloved City. They have either gone to heaven or moved away. Yes we do have the professional complainers but rarely will you see them do anything but complain. Thank you Mr. Nash for all the sacrifices you made to help make Gloucester City a better place to live during your lifetime.. You certainly will be missed by all of us who knew you.

(www. CourierPostonLine.com May 5th)………A 20-year-old Gloucester City man pleaded guilty Monday to endangering the welfare of children, admitting he touched the buttocks of seven boys for his sexual gratification. Philip S. Chafe, 3rd, of the 600 block of Division Street, reached a plea agreement that recommends he be sentenced to five years in state prison. Assistant Camden County Prosecutor Donna Spinosi said Chafe is charged with inappropriately touching seven boys, between 10 and 14 years old, between May 23 and June 14, 2007. Chafe did not know any of the boys, but told police after spotting them while he rode his bike, he would dismount, walk up to the boys, and pat them on the buttocks. He then would ride away, Spinosi said. The touching incidents took place in Gloucester City and Brooklawn, she said. continue

Democrats divided-When Democrats gathered around U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg at the Trenton Marriott on the last day of March, they thought they were starting another easy reelection campaign. But two days later, U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews, a Camden County Democrat, leaped into the June 3 primary against Lautenberg. Ever since, the two men have been acting like a couple of street fighters, and their personal battle is becoming a party-wide rumble.
