Prescription Benefits Probe
The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office is seeking records related to prescription benefits of Mainland Regional High School employees, Suzanne Marino reported for The Press of Atlantic City on Friday. The subpoena sent to the school is similar to those sent to city governments in Atlantic City, Ventnor and Margate in July (those three towns were also subpoenaed by the FBI in June). Five people pled guilty last month for their role in the multimillion-dollar case that allegedly involved doctors prescribing compound creams under the names of public employees to the tune of $10,000 each month.

A ranking of shore towns by last year’s beach-tag revenue shows that Atlantic County’s beaches actually don’t make all that much money (between $210,000 and $340,000) compared to Ocean City’s mega haul of $4 million. Cape May also makes more than $2 million from its beaches. Read the full piece (of just scroll down to the chart and hover over the bars) for more details via NJ.com.
