  • Food for Thought0

    There is so much going on around the world to talk about, unfortunately none of it is good news. ISIS, Hamas, Syria, Gaza, Iran, Iraq, could the Middle East be any more of a mess? There is no reasoning with any radical Islamic group, or country, or both in the case of Syria. So there

    What is fact and the truth is under attack in our great nation.

This adds up to the

  • Political Fertilizer0

    As I watch, listen and read the nonsense that comes out of the mouths of our elected officials it is hard to take.

  • The Israeli Nation and Deportation0

    As I observe what is going on in the Middle East it’s mind-boggling that our President and his staff, many mainstream media people and the liberal left find any way possible to criticize Israel for defending itself.

    It was an early morning a week or so ago as I sat in the breakfast area of a Vineland New Jersey hotel sipping on my coffee. The area became alive with young soccer players grabbing a quick bite before heading out for that dreaded 8:00 AM game. Jimmy and I were there for baseball.

    Summer has arrived. School is out, Drive safely and watch out for the young ones. I would have thought by now Mayor Gabriel Campana would have realized the importance of basketball to the community. My article last week, “So Long Sech”, was about how through Dave Sechler’s efforts so many folks from so many walks

    People cross through your path of life each and every day. Some spend a short time in your journey, others a little longer. Often it is not until they leave you that you remember the timeline and how special they were. If you knew Dave Sechler you liked him. Thin fellow, not real tall, always

    It was the end of the workday and I was rushing around to get up to Jersey Shore for a middle school hoops game. Pick up Michelle; hit the MAC machine for a quick sixty, so she doesn’t have to buy her own ticket. Ahead of schedule, we ran through the drive-thru at Burger King

    I’m not a shopper. Every holiday season I wait until the last minute and then hit the stores looking for that special gift to make Christmas morning memorable.
