CHEER-To the people from Gloucester City, Brooklawn, Mount Ephraim, Westville and Bellmawr who, despite tough economic times, donated gifts and holiday dinners to those families less fortunate so they could have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
JEER-To people who park unlicensed/unregistered vehicles and trailers on their property, on city parking lots and in the streets. The same goes for people who store trash, junk and debris on their property. These eyesores affect the quality of life in the neighborhoods were they are located. To report a violation (s) call the Housing Office, the department that is responsible for enforcing the law, at 456-7689.
CHEER-To all firemen, be they volunteer or paid, and to all police officers for risking their lives to protect you and I on a daily basis.
JEER-To Rob Andrews for lying about the reason why he bailed out before his term was over. Only a shameless politician getting drummed out of office wants to "spend more time with my family" after their
kids are grown up.
CHEER- Over 40 inches of snow this year has made it difficult for letter carriers to make their appointed rounds. Even so the men and women who deliver the mail in the South Jersey area are out there everyday serving the public with a smile. Thank you!
JEER-To NJ Transit and the NFL for forcing fans to use an overloaded rail system, making them wait hours to get in and out of the game, setting an all-time record for thrown beers and foul language at a Super Bowl.
CHEER-To Rob Andrews for stepping down after serving 24 years in Congress because spending time with his family is more important than politics.
CHEER-To NJ Transit for making New Jersey the first “mass-transit" Super Bowl state, setting the all-time record for the smallest carbon footprint in Super Bowl history.
CHEER—Kudos to our military people who have served and those who continue to serve. They have stood guard throughout the years and made sacrifices many of us can only imagine. Many of them made the ultimate sacrifice. Let us never forget those who fought and defended it as well as those who continue to serve.
CHEER-The ShopRite of Brooklawn, owned and operated by the Brown Family, recently donated a new Technology Center to Audubon High School. The Center offers new learning opportunities for the students at the school, who come from Audubon and Mt. Ephraim. This is not a one-time donation, over the years the Browns have always gone out of there way to help the communities in the area with financial help whenever they are needed.
