AccuWeather: Where Will The Best Skiing Be This Season?

AccuWeather meteorologists issued their annual ski season forecast, highlighting that this winter could be “very interesting” for skiers in one of the country's most populated regions. AccuWeather Global Weather Center – November 21, 2022 – The wait is finally over for skiers and snowboarders across the United States as snow has returned and a new ski season is underway, although AccuWeather forecasters warn that some popular mountains could be hurting for snow in the coming months. Ski resorts across the country are starting to open for the season, thanks in part to La Niña.

First appeared in the Gloucester City News (newspaper) on January 30, 1986 Gloucester High School's basketball team, having divided a pair of games last week, finds itself in a position of having to win two of its next three games to qualify for state tournament play. The Lions took a 6-7 record to Carneys Point this past Tuesday to face an improving St. James' team.

Glassboro visits the Lions tomorrow night (Friday), and Schalick travels to Gloucester for an important game next Tuesday. If the Lions weren't victorious against St. James, its tournament hopes would appear bleak heading into the Glassboro games.

The Story Behind The Story: Another Question for the Gloucester City Council Candidates

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (In the spring a long-time public works employee was accused of stealing city property and using a city account for personal purchases. Old-time Gloucesterites know the details, no reason to go into them here. Each time the part-time Chief of Police is asked about the status of the alleged incident the answer is the same "under investigation." It didn't take this long for the Warren Commission to investigate the Kennedy assassination (hyperbole, but making a point.) I would like to know from each candidate if, by January 1, 2023 when the new city government is formed, this accusation has not been settled and the taxpayers given the facts of the settlement, would he support turning this case over to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office or to the State Police?
