How did a bunch of little things turn into a “BIG THING” in our community?

Hanging flower baskets on Monmouth Street are still hanging with dead flowers for the past 5 weeks. Welcome to Gloucester signs are not maintained sending a negative message to people coming into our town. Litter laws have to be enforced in parking lots of retail stores especially on Broadway. Every year the city has to be reminded to hang the Betsy Ross Flags along our Riverfront Park. This is not done yet in 2021. Put your recyclables out in a proper container with a lid to prevent neighborhood litter. Teak benches on Freedom Pier should be reinstalled on stronger brackets. People paid to sponsor these benches in honor of their loved ones. The benches have been stored in a warehouse for the past five years! The total cost to correct these problems is “0” dollars. Let’s start bringing the pride back into our neighborhoods. Look at Monmouth Street from the... Read more →

ICE Arrest 16 Sexual Predators Here Illegally; But They Were Set Free Because Of Sanctuary Cities Like NY

NEW YORK – Officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested 16 sexual predators during a 2-day period, ending Sep. 11 in New York City, the Hudson Valley and on Long Island, in an enforcement effort dubbed “Operation SOAR” (Sex Offender Alien Removal).

When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry...

SURVEY SAYS!--Across The U.S., Non-white Neighborhoods Are Hotter Than White Ones

(NAPSI)—Nationwide, in both major cities and small towns, neighborhoods with more Black, Hispanic and Asian residents experience hotter temperatures during summer heatwaves than nearby white residents, regardless of a neighborhood’s income. These racial disparities exist because non-white neighborhoods tend to be more densely built up with buildings and pavement that trap heat, and have fewer trees to cool the landscape, according to the nationwide study in the AGU journal Earth’s Future, which publishes interdisciplinary research on the past, present and future of the planet and its inhabitants. The trend held up even when wealth was taken out of the picture. When residents had a similar income, non-white neighborhoods still faced significantly higher temperatures than white ones in 71% of the counties. “Urban climate is different from temperatures outside the city,” explained the study’s co-author Susanne Benz, an environmental scientist who conducted this research at the University of California, San Diego...

Deptford Doctor Profiled in Magazine: Fighting for Herself, and Others

: [DEPTFORD, N.J., July 28, 2021] When her first migraine attack happened at age 23, Courtney White, MD, was upset--but not that surprised. White had regarded her health like a ticking time bomb: all of the women in her family experience migraine attacks. Even though she knew what to expect from seeing family members cope and was a medical student comfortable advocating for her health, it took years to find strategies that helped. Today, White is a neurologist and headache specialist currently serving as a fellow at the Jefferson Headache Center in Philadelphia, one of the top headache centers in the country. There, she uses her experiences to inform how she approaches caring for patients. For example, White believes a comprehensive approach to care is often best--combining a variety of treatments instead of relying on just one type. But she advocates for patients even outside the clinic: White is a... Read more →
