Roadside Assistance - AARP vs AAA

I am a member of AAA for many years (along with my husband and child). We used AAA road assistance service a couple of times, hotel and Amtrak discounts. Now my husband can become AARP member. There are so much commercials about AARP benefits. Does it worth to switch to AARP? I am mostly concerned about road side assistance. AAA was extremely helpful when we need it. We have road assistance service through our auto insurance but AAA was much faster to respond and easier to deal with.

Cicada Killer Wasp

An Asian giant hornet landed on my back deck. Caught it, put it a jar. Has anyone seen one in Hackettstown or surrounding area? I googled them. 10 of these hornets can kill 30,000 hunny bees and take their nest for their hunny. I was wondering if the town ofHackettstown needs to know they are in our area?

Homestead Rebate not received this year

Live in Mansfield. Last year, the rebate came a week after the tax bill, in the form of a credit off the new quarter. This year, taxes were due August 28th. Never received the homestead rebate. Anyone else having this problem?
