A Trump Museum, Earth Shakes, Tax Deals and Narcan – Friday’s Roundup

A Trump Museum
A Stockton University professor and a tour operator are collecting Trump artifacts and hoping to open a museum in Atlantic City all about the soon-to-be President Trump. On the one hand, it’s something that would potentially draw visitors, provide employment and it’s not a casino… On the other hand, it’s a museum to someone who prompts mixed – but usually strong – emotions around here. What do you think? The Press of Atlantic City has the story.

Did The Earth Move For You?
There was a lot of buzz yesterday about an earthquake… apart from according to the experts as the U.S. Geological Service, it wasn’t an earthquake. It isn’t the first time people in this part of South Jersey have felt the ground move – earlier this year it turned out to be sonic booms.

Tax Deals
SNJ Today reports on a shindig in Camden to celebrate Governor Christie’s plans to scrap his scrapping of the New Jersey-Pennsylvania tax agreement. And there was a lot of national news yesterday too about tax deals for corporations. They are different kind of tax agreements, to be sure, but it is hard from this perspective in Atlantic County not to think that this is one geographical area that illustrates how and why tax deals for businesses (like casinos) just wind up backfiring on local government when the tax rate eventually has to rise.

Narcan in Schools
Following up on a few articles yesterday on the opioid epidemic, The Philly Voice has this one about how Ocean County high school nurses will now have access to the overdose antidote Narcan.
