Whew! Bayfest No. 22 is in the history books. Great job by chairman Dave Biggins and his entire crew of hard working volunteers. As usual, Harry kept the reins on the rains and Sunday was absolutely gorgeous. Many thanks to all who attended and made this a big success for all of our charities.

It is hard to believe that today starts the Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end to another summer. What have you got planned? Don't forget that Friday and Saturday, food returns (beats cooking).

Letter: Shark Park nets are unsafe

To the editor:

Today I took my children to Shark Park to enjoy some rides and play some basketball. I was surprised to see the deplorable conditions of the basketball nets. I realize that the park is undergoing renovations, but I feel that those nets are unsightly and unsafe. The rims are set so low that my son scraped his hand while dunking a ball into the net. After receiving yet another tax increase this year, I think the City of Brigantine should do better for our children so that they can continue to enjoy the park.

After vacationing for 30 years in Brigantine, we retired last year and moved here full-time. Last week we enjoyed watching the movie "Frozen" on the 17th Street beach. What a positive experience to see hundreds of people on the beach at night enjoying a movie under the stars. My compliments to the Brigantine Chamber of Commerce and all those who helped to make this event a success. Keep up the good work in promoting our beautiful island.

Sadly, the last weekend of the summer tennis season is rapidly approaching but we are thankful for the beautiful weather we had all summer. It has been a stellar season and just wanted to thank the regular groups for their continued support starting with Deb Schlesinger and the Weekend Crew, the BLT’s, Jimmy and the Boys, Len & Stu and the newly formed BGTs. Also want to thank the Monday Night clinic participants and all those who took lessons and clinics through the summer.  Don’t forget the weather is beautiful in the fall so don’t pack your racquets away just yet.

BRIGANTINE - Cathy Crossland from Bayside Marina reports that the white marlin last week was not 280 pounds. It was a typo!

This is fishing with the big boys! As you read this, the DO-AC Beach-N-Boat challenge will be starting. For more information go to www.BeachnBoat.com .
