Letter: Expectations for golf course should be realistic

To the editor:

By now many of the residents of Brigantine have heard that only a few proposals for the long-term lease of the golf course have been submitted by the deadline. The fact that only a few proposals were submitted, out of the nine reputable and successful golf course ownership groups that attended the initial meeting, should be viewed as a statement on the perceived future profitability of the golf course in a shrinking industry.

To the editor:

Do the Republicans really think that Brigantine taxpayers can’t see through the charade of their $20 million savings plan? Everyone knows that the current financial problems are a direct result of their poor financial management and governance. Clearly they had a self-serving agenda behind these questionable financial decisions.

To the editor:

It is interesting to note that the "moderator" of the Brigantine Now website apparently has been given or has taken the authority to refuse to post comments that present an opposing point of view.

The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense

The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense During a recent trip to Europe I had the experience of using the Euro coin, that is the common currency in use through the 28 member countries known as the European Union and currently valued at around $1.30 per Euro. I’ve written before about how the Euro utilizes coins from the 1 cent size through the 2 Euro size and then paper from 5 Euros up, resulting in a substantial savings by not printing 1 and 2 Euros in paper. There are higher denomination Euro coins, 5 Euros, 10 Euros and up, but these are typically what is known as non-circulating legal tender because they are not intended for use as money and they are minted in limited quantities for collectors and sometimes are minted in silver or gold.
