LGBTQ and the Freeholders

November 30, 2020

NIMBY.

Not In My Backyard.

That seems to be the attitude of the Sussex County Board of Freeholders.

They've come out against marijuana law reform and reproductive rights.

Their latest target of opposition is educating students about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) issues. The Freeholders recently passed a resolution opposing the revised standards approved by ...

Reproductive rights

It's always about priorities for the Sussex County Board of Freeholders. 

 Too bad their priorities are misplaced. 

 With the county facing health and economic crises due to the pandemic, you would think the five Republicans tasked with leading our county would be focusing on these important local issues 

 They're not. Instead they side step and ...

The New Normal Rockwell

Dear diary,

I love Thanksgiving. Even though I don’t get any presents, it is my favoritest holiday of the whole year.

On Thanksgiving Day our family gets together at our house. My aunts and uncles and cousins and grandmas and grandpas. Sometimes even some awkward girlfriends and boyfriends who we never see again after that. We light a fire in the fireplace and fill up the house with ...
