Video: President Reagan, the Last Great President of the US

Gloucestercitynews.net files WASHINGTON POLITICS WASHINGTON, DC--There was a time when both Republicans and Democrats actually got along. They had their differences of course.

August 2008 Archives: Same Gas, Different Prices, What Gives?

A Few Thoughts published August 7, 2008 By Rich Luongo There's really a lot more to the high price of gas than we've been told.

Check out the same brands in different locations and you can see a price difference of about 15 cents a gallon. For instance I saw a station down the White Horse Pike with regular selling for $3.61 a gallon but that same brand of gas at another station closer to this area was $3.77. What gives? It's the same company, same gas, same distributor, same formula but there... Read more →

published Thursday, May 30, 2013 THE UNBEATABLE RAMS!!! --This year's Rams team had their way, once again, with the Lions Alumni. Rams Manager/Head Coach Bob Chew was asked what he attributed his team's success to? Chew said, "First of all, our team practices all year long. And, as you can see, that hard work pays off, both in the field, and at the plate. I am not taking anything away from our opponent. However, I do think some of the players on this year's Lions team were too old to be playing against us. I thought for sure a couple of them were going to have a heart attack. Maybe next year they will retire some of these old guys and bring younger alumni to... Read more →

A Black Eye for the Green Generation, Coyle v Schmidt, Public Loves Local Government

(PUBLISHED April 23, 2018)(Gloucester City, NJ)--Let this be a reminder to those who use Martin's Lake for fishing and other recreational areas, here and elsewhere, to clean up after themselves. Don't leave your discarded fishing line and hooks at the park. The birds, geese and ducks can get injured because of your carelessness. There are only six trash cans spread around the one acre plus park. It would be a nice gesture if some local organization (s) purchased a few more receptacles for this beautiful park. Sad to say, but some people today just don't care about the environment. Take a ride around this city and elsewhere and you'll find liter thrown all about. So much for the so called “Green Generation.” Despite their reputation... Read more →
