ENOUGH ALREADY The winter of 2010 is being called "Terrible Ten" here in Cape May County. The record has been set as this being the most snowfall ever, with 48" on the ground as of February 11th.

Help Us Fight Hunger March 3rd, 2010 As realtors, we get inside a lot of homes during the course of a year.  Sometimes, what we see is appalling.  Senior citizens subsisting on Saltine crackers the last few days of the month and financially-strapped families bulking up on white bread and big gene...

Lower Township's Revaluation February 19th, 2010 Sometimes a municipality in New Jersey actually shows foresight and at the same time saves itself a lot of money.  Such is the case recently in Lower Township, Cape May County.

Our Blizzard Drama February 12th, 2010 The big blizzard of February 5-6th, 2010 dumped about 22 inches of snow on Cape May County, New Jersey.  The wet, heavy snow paralyzed a peninsula that rarely receives more than 7 or 8 inches of snow in an entire winter.  February 9-10th, another blizzard bl...

Well, we are certainly having our share of snow this year.  I've seen more snow in the last 2 weeks than I've seen in the 32 years I've lived in this area.  Actually, I bought a hotel in Wildwood in 1978 during a big storm that dropped over 2 feet of snow and the agent had to carry me over the dr...

RIP New Jersey COAH February 2nd, 2010 A New Jersey State Senate bill recently introduced would abolish the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH), taking implementation of low and moderate income housing standards from the state and putting it in the hands of municipalities.  It's about time.

Phil, Say it Ain't So by Mountain Man (Douglas Jewell) January 30th, 2010 The phone call yesterday went something like this:  "Your boy got accused of cheating," I said, speaking of PGA Tour golf icon Phil Mickelson who also happens to be City Girl's favorite golfer. "That's impossible," she repl...

One Take on ‘Avatar' and the Vatican January 30th, 2010 The movie ‘Avatar" doesn't have enough "curb appeal", as we realtors say, to get us to go pay $12 apiece to see it.  It's just not the kind of movie we like. So when the Vatican gave the movie a thumbs down, it piqued our curiosity.  This mo...
