A Message from Congressman Donald Norcross

Gas prices are out of control. I see the high prices every time I fill my gas tank, and I know you do too. It drives me crazy that oil and gas companies are squeezing working families even as they make record profits. Wealthy executives just spent $35 billion on stock buybacks and left working people with the bill. I’m introducing the GOUGE Act to help change that.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The Healing Touch of Flowers

What has happened to the committee who decorates our city with flowers in the spring? Beautiful urns were purchased a few years back and they sit empty. There used to be beautiful hanging baskets on Monmouth St but I don’t see them any longer. I see other small communities, i.e. Westville with their urns/vessels decorated with beautiful spring flowers, but not Gloucester City.
