Pinelands Pipes II
Just in case you were thinking that all the furore around the Pinelands pipeline proposed by South Jersey Gas (and others), would put anyone else off of proposing a large pipeline through the Pinelands, think again. The Pinelands Commission could vote this summer on a new proposal by New Jersey Natural Gas dubbed the “Southern Reliability Link”. The Asbury Park Press has the details.

Small Recount
Atlantic City Council President Marty Small, who lost last week’s primary election to select the Democratic mayoral candidate, is contesting the vote. Small lost the vote on mail-in ballots (he was ahead after machine votes were counted on June 6) and he filed paperwork in state superior court to challenge the result. Christian Hetrick has the details for Observer.

As we were compiling the Roundup, the husband of murdered radio host April Kauffman was taken into custody, after he allegedly pulled a gun when law enforcement came to search his Egg Harbor Township office. Lynda Cohen has the details on BreakingAC.

Watch our collaboration with SNJ Today on the double dutch skipping contest in Atlantic City this weekend.
