PEYTON AND ME MEANDERING: Stops in Audubon, Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Gloucester City

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ--For whatever reason, there are sections of Gloucester City that are being used as dumping grounds by people who have no respect for the environment or the community that you and I live in. They litter the main streets of the City with their trash and or drop it in the fields across from the Cold Springs School Campus. Some of these same individuals are responsible for the trash piles along Water and Charles Streets in the old industrial area. Some playgrounds have become a favorite target, even though trash cans are visible in most city parks. Sadly the offenders are not only from out-of-town but residents who live here. The fields across from the Cold Springs School Campus have been used as an illegal dump site for years. The trash in this photo was discovered in early May 2022. Discarded mail... Read more →

Mayor Bailes' Promise Of Open Government In Gloucester City Has Arrived; First Newsletter In A Decade Released

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNewsnet GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (March 22, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--For over a decade or more residents in Gloucester City, including the press, have had to rely on bits and pieces of trickled information coming from the Municipal Building to learn about what was happening in the City. In the past whenever the Press would ask a question the response was always "you'll have to submit an OPRA (Open Public Records Act) request". As far as this reporter is concerned the OPRA process is time-consuming and costly for taxpayers. Most of the time many questions from the Press can be answered with a simple yes or no answer. Plus the law has no teeth; meaning the punishment levied against a municipality for not complying with a request is a slap on the wrist.

In these instances, individuals were able to buy drugs from websites that had been checked out by either users themselves or a trusted reviewer system which would leave a review stating whether they...

Landscaping Trends In And Around Gloucester City 

In Gloucester City, the carnage wrought by Hurricane Ida is still a raw memory. The storm produced sixteen tornado warnings in the Philadelphia area and in Gloucester County alone, damaging more than 100 buildings.

What are slot machines and how do they work?

Everyone is familiar with the slot machines that used to be installed in nightclubs, bars, and casinos. There are modern-day equivalents known as "online slots." Despite the fact that a large number of slot machines exist, each one has a parameter known as the return coefficient (RTP) and other unique features. RTP can range from ninety-four to ninety-eight percent among the most popular slot machines found in various casinos. This parameter is coded in the core of the slot machine, and it means that the slot machine will refund this proportion of the total bet amount in the long term. Of course, the algorithm of their work is a developer's trade secret, and the player's professionalism is in to unravel it and other software’s features.

Smart Reasons to Use Local Businesses

An economy is the circulation of wealth within a specific area. Thus, it makes sense to support local businesses because they are part of one's own economy. These businesses also rely on the spending power of their customers in their immediate geographical region, so they are more inclined to offer better deals, lower prices, or more personalized service than high-volume, low-margin companies. For example, you might want help on learning how to day trade crypto currency and there is a company down the road that will do just that. You can both help each other out. Supporting local businesses stimulates local spending which in turn moves money within the community, generating more income for everyone who lives there. As a result, people are happier because they can afford to shop around and get better service at their convenience, plus there is more employment since additional clerks may be needed to...

Eric Dalius’s Views on Machinery Loans to Succeed in Your Manufacturing Business

You are the owner of a manufacturing plant that builds something like microchips and fabrication devices. Keeping the plant running for several years, you now realize that the equipment and tools working in the plant have become old and outdated. Now, the maintenance team has to devote a lot more than expected time to the repairs and upgrades on the items, which is hampering the overall productivity of the plant.
