Here’s the Scoop–Aug. 31, 2018

We regret to report the passing of retiree, Betty Ramsey.  She was 81.
Betty worked at Atlantic Cape from 1973 – 1998,  serving as a bookkeeper until her promotion to payroll supervisor.  Betty’s biggest contribution to the college, aside from her delicious pumpkin bread at the holidays, may have been her kindness and guidance in working with new employees on the college’s financial and human resources computer systems.  She was always willing to take time out to guide others and help them rectify errors.
She is survived by her children, Pamela, Suzanne and Thomas E. Ramsey.
Visitation will be held from 10 am.-noon on Saturday, Sept. 1, at Parsels Funeral Home, 324 New Jersey Ave., Absecon.  A service will begin at noon.

Expressions may be sent to the family in care of Pamela Ramsey 159 Muirfield Court, Mays Landing, NJ 08330 Continue reading

But first, a few Seattle tidbits…  

While we may all know Seattle as the birthplace of grunge music or Jimi Hendrix, here are some things about Seattle you might not know.

Where is it? 

Seattle lies between Puget Sound and Lake Washington. To the west is the Olympic Mountain range and to the east are the Cascade Mountains. It covers about 142.5 square miles (wow!) and as of 2016, Seattle’s population was 704,352 Continue reading
