It's easy to be confused with talk of the Child Tax Credit on the State and National levels.

Here's what we do know. There is not a fourth stimulus check for any amount of money scheduled in the near future.

A woman named Stephanie Bonan started the campaign and wrote on

I’m calling on Congress to support families with a $2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and continuing regular checks for the duration of the crisis. Otherwise, laid-off workers, furloughed workers, the self-employed, and workers dealing with reduced hours will struggle to pay their rent or put food on the table.

We all know there are lots of trolls and bots spewing lies on Facebook and other platforms, but to joke about stimulus money that many families really need is pretty low.

Love the beach, but want to leave New Jersey? LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
