Air Marshal Training
Did you know that a new round of U.S. Air Marshal recruits (the first since 2011!) are training right here in Atlantic County? It was news to us too, but The Washington Post has a neat behind-the-scenes look at what the training program entails and the special set-up at the William J. Hughes FAA Technical Center where it all happens.

Online High-School Chemistry
Atlantic City doesn’t have a high-school chemistry teacher, so kids are learning online, Diane D’Amico writes for The Press of Atlantic City. The piece talks to students, who on the whole aren’t very impressed with the lack of a teacher, and looks at the reasons why the school hasn’t been able to find a teacher (it’s still looking).  Science and math teachers state-wide are in short supply – but it seems like luring them to Atlantic City has been a particularly tough sell and no one has any good solutions. Applicants were offered the job and backed out, Assistant Superintendent Sherry Yahn explained to the school board.

It’s going to feel like spring this week! Thanks to @leannwnuk for this photo.

In the rest of the headlines from Friday and the weekend, a baby seal was rescued off of Cape May with help from Brigantine’s Marine Mammal Stranding Center, $400 million in NJ roadwork money won’t mean much for South Jersey, Oakcrest grad Cody Stashak is pitching his way up the Minnesota Twins’ system, and, if you’re procrastinating in the office, you could check out these pictures from the Ocean City Doo-Dah parade. All that and more below:
