Get Hold of a Reliable Plastic Surgeon for an Early Facelift

(December 19, 2020)--As people age, one experiences the wearying effects on the skin. With wrinkles, fine lines, sagging of the face, and loss of elasticity, one can opt for a facelift. If you think you are too young for a facelift, it is a good indication, and this is the right time for you to explore the options. A facelift by a reliable plastic surgeon can aid a patient as young as forty to turn back the clock and maintain a youthful appearance. Age is Just a Number Since every person ages differently, do not focus on how old you are. The factors that influence our age include our genetics, lifestyle, diet, and environmental influence. A forty-year-old lady with healthy habits might look ten years... Read more →

Peyton and Me Meandering Through the Streets of South Jersey (Brooklawn Chapter II)

CORRECTED William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews PEYTON (Gloucestercitynews.net)(October 28, 2020)--Daniel Boggs recently submitted a Letter to the Editor titled "Are The Communities of Gloucester City/Brooklawn Turning Into Slums?". Although we agree with Mr. Boggs about some neighborhoods in Gloucester City having a housing and trash problem the only thing we found walking through Brooklawn today were two derelict cars missing license plates and NJ inspection stickers. Derelict cars CNBNews photo We liked how the Borough placed a tarp with a woodsy scene on one side of the public works property. Every street we viewed was cleaned, the homes were all kept nice, and there was no trash blowing around. The residents should be commended for taking pride in their community. The Borough placed a...

Memories of Gloucester City: Do You know Where This Is?

GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ--(October 19, 2020)--Frank Devlin needs help identifying the location in the attached picture. The event is the 1930 American Legion Parade. The man on the horse is his grandfather J. Frank Devlin. He also appears on this site in an October 20, 2019 post. The notes on the bottom corner and at the top of the picture were made by my father Jack Devlin. I cannot make out the sign in the window of the store in the background, but the store window has a banner at the top that might read “Marvel Ice cream”. He would also like to know if this was a Memorial Day or 4th of July parade and what the route was? Editor's Note: I think the building... Read more →

Brooklawn Drops Championship on Emotional Decision

by CNBNews Staff BROOKLAWN, NJ—Brooklawn School's first year Coach Austin Darrow never expected his first championship game as a Head coach would be decided off the court instead of on the hardwood floor of a gym. Darrow was forced to decide before the game whether to sit his best player over a personal issue and probably lose the game for his entire team or play the game as if nothing happened. After getting support from players and parents, Darrow felt setting aside his principles was not worth a Championship. Darrow sat his best player and with his top player sitting and watching, the Brooklawn Bears battled the best they could, but soon found themselves losing by 30 points. Darrow visibily upset continued to rally his... Read more →

Detroit Free Press Is An Absolute Disgrace

January 2, 2020 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a news story in the January 2 Detroit Free Press: By Bill Donohue | The Catholic League Let's say you are a reporter who detests the Catholic Church (there are more than a few out there), and would like to do an article that reflects badly on it. You come across a story that may qualify, but it is rather routine: it is about high school boys acting inappropriately. Not satisfied that it will really put the Church against the wall, you decide to enhance the piece by trotting out a story about a noted Catholic public figure (Brett Kavanaugh) who was accused of acting offensively when he was in high school. It happened decades... Read more →

M.A.G.A.: Trump and Dem Candidates Dance to YMCA Tune in Viral Video

A Florida lawyer whose work for WikiLeaks landed him before the Mueller Commission and a small group of supporters of President Donald Trump just dropped on social media a humorous pro-MAGA video on the riffs of the 1970s disco anthem YMCA. Released about noon Monday, the video starts in the same fashion of The Village People's original song with vintage views of the Manhattan's old YMCA building -except that in his version, the real neon sign was replaced with MAGA. In the parody by the fake band The American People, the faces of the original singers dressed to look like a motorcycle cop, an Indian Chief, a cowboy, a construction worker, a biker and a GI are replaced with the faces of Trump as the...

Memories from the Past: THE YEAR WAS 1955...

RELATED: GLOUCESTER CITY HISTORY SOME OF US may remember our parents saying some or all of the statements below. History does repeat itself. ***** Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter? If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store. When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage. Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball?

Travel: All in for All-Inclusive Fun? Let's go to Cancun, Mexico!

By Nicole Pensiero | CNBNewsnet There's a first time for everything, as they say. And finally, it was time to give an all-inclusive vacation a try. Aside from ocean cruising, I'd never been very interested in all-inclusive travel, imaging long buffet lines, watered-down drinks and sub-par food. But when pondering a good getaway for my 60th birthday, the idea of a four-night jaunt to Mexico (with five longtime friends) seemed ideal. And an all-inclusive resort, selected online, seemed our best value. We opted for the Mexican Caribbean for a few reasons: half of our group ad never been “south of the border” and were eager to visit Mexico, and everyone agreed it would be a great cost-savings over some of the other island destinations we...

10 Staggering Photos Of An Abandoned WWII Bunker Hiding In South Jersey

There are abandoned places all over New Jersey, some of which are truly fascinating. For prime exploring, many head to the Pine Barrens. The woods are filled with remnants of former milling and mining towns, several of which are hidden and others which are well-preserved attractions (like Batsto Village). However, you can find abandoned barns up in Sussex County, abandoned factories in Essex County, and abandoned bunkers in Cape May County…formerly vibrant buildings become nothing as the years go by. While the bunker I’m referring to may not be considered hidden to locals, it’s certainly an unexpected surprise for many visitors. Exactly how much of the bunker you can see at any given time depends on the tides. This is Cape May's iconic WWII bunker,... Read more →
