Catch up on what happened this week in Tabernacle.

Sun Editorial: Playing the (expensive) dating game

A recent study by 24/7 Wall Street ranked New Jersey as №2 on the most expensive states to date in list at a whopping $260 per date. The state followed only New York at $297 per date. Clearly, someone out there isn’t making full use of the various “value menu” options at local eateries.

The cheapest place to pitch and woo? South Dakota at $38, meaning, if the chemistry is super right, the entire dating process, from first meeting to ring on a finger, in South Dakota might be wrapped up for the cost of just a few outings in New Jersey.
