CNBNEWS Editorial:

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO GLOUCESTER CITY?

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNewsnet This past Sunday, (July 31) driving north on Broadway we stopped for the traffic light at Broadway and Market Street and noticed right away the pile of loosely thrown litter laying on the sidewalk up against the old Twin Bar building. The city owned trash receptacle was overflowing with debris. CNBNewsnet photo We wondered to ourselves what type of person throws away their trash in this manner? And, why is Gloucester City attracting these inconsiderate people to our community? A few yards north there was used furniture dumped (see arrow above) at the curb in front of a rental property in the 200 unit block of S. Broadway. Trash pickup for Broadway residents is Monday. The City’s ordinance states trash cannot be placed at the curb until after 5 PM the day before. And yet we have witnessed the owner of this property place... Read more →

Author James Patterson says, “...But remember you have to move on somehow. You just pick your head up and stare at something beautiful like the sky or the ocean…” One day we will know what it was like to love you with wonder, not grief. Emmaline spent her entire circle of days as a Gloucester neighbor. During her early years, she loved to disco and belly dance.... Read more →


Nine New Jersey Counties on the Top 30 List with the Highest Foreclosure Rates in the United States

Samuel Stebbins, 24/7 Wall St. via The Center Square The worst inflation in 40 years has led to cascading effects, with consumer sentiment declining and gross domestic product decreasing in the first quarter of this year. While the Federal Reserve has been raising rates to tame inflation, this has resulted in higher mortgage rates. Combined, these factors appear to be cooling the U.S. housing market after white-hot demand in the past two years sent prices skyward. So far, the number of foreclosure filings in the first six months of the year is still slightly lower than it was in the same period in 2020. But these filings are up 153% from the first half of last year, according to property data provider Attom Data Solutions. Home foreclosure filings include default notices, bank repossessions, and scheduled auctions and are used as a measure to gauge the health of housing markets at... Read more →
