MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Neighbors complained recently to officials at Naval Weapons Station Earle about music being played loudly at 8:00 a.m. each morning.
Bob Wille, an Earle neighbor, was quoted in a recent Asbury Park Press article, “Why should someone not in the service have to wake up to reveille?’” Mr. Wille and some of his neighbors on 11th Street in Belford have asked officials at the naval station to turn down the volume.
The neighbors say they first noticed the loud music early last summer. The naval station had installed a new emergency address system to replace one that broke down three years ago. One woman called Middletown Police three times before realizing the music was coming from Earle.
MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Over the last seven years, the Garden Club R.F.D. (GCRFD) has been associated with the New Jersey Blind Citizens Association (NJBCA) in Leonardo at 18 Burlington Avenue. This organization is the oldest organization serving the blind and visually impaired adults in New Jersey—a 501c3 non-profit, non-sectarian charitable organization that attempts to improve the lives of the blind and visually impaired economically, vocationally, educationally and socially.
GCRFD’s work is an outgrowth of the Garden Club of New Jersey’s Garden Therapy Program. For six years, an herb and vegetable garden was established and maintained by the Club, working with Blind Citizen, Charles Blood, who acted as liaison between GCRFD and the NJBCA. Two years ago, a $500 grant was awarded to GCRFD by the Garden Club of New Jersey to help support their gardening efforts.
