Message from President Kesselman on Roe v. Wade Decision

Today’s 6-3 decision on Roe vs. Wade from the U.S. Supreme Court, while expected, is still shocking, disturbing, and a huge step backwards for the basic rights of women to determine their own health care and reproductive choices.

Old Video Surfaces Of The Ocean City, NJ, Boardwalk From The 1930s

Get ready to throw it waaaaaaay back. If someone asked you for one must-do activity when visiting the Jersey shore, could you even make a list without mentioning an excursion to the boardwalk? Probably not. In fact, it'd probably be one of the first recommendations you make, right? After all, you can't do a beach day without finishing it with a walk on the boards. I mean, did you even go to the beach if you don't at least grab some fudge or ice cream on the boardwalk?

Towing Fail Captured on Security Cam

Occurred on October 28, 2021 / Tuckahoe, New Jersey, USA Info from Licensor: "Pulled car off trailer. The car missed the wood 4x4 placed behind the car so it would not hit another car. Jumped out of the truck and forgot to put the truck in park. The truck started down the driveway and pulled the car towards the other parked cars. I was able to barely get back into the truck to put it in park then back out and put my body between the Prius and the Honda CRV. As a note. I moved my brand new 2-day-old Subaru from in front of the truck. Was very tired after a long day and almost did not do it. Could have wrecked 4 cars in 60 seconds."

Wawa’s Opening 50+ More Stores This Year, Another Opened Today In Vineland, NJ

The question needs to be asked: can you ever have too many Wawas?. If you're a born and bred resident of either New Jersey, Philadelphia, or the Philly suburbs of Pennsylvania, then you frequent your local Wawa at least once or twice a week. Wawa's a staple in the Delaware Valley. To be honest, it's fair to ask the question what would this region be without Wawa's existence? It'd be sad, that's what.
