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.

To the editor,

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.

New England starting fullback James Develin began working out at the ultra- modern Brigantine weight facility a few years hoping to get a roster spot on an NFL team. The long hours in the gym would eventually pay big dividends after many disappointments. Develin had been cut by Cincinnati in both 2011 and 2012.
Last Sept. 2 he was cut by New England and then resigned four days later. He proved his worth by playing in 16 regular season games.
This year James is developing into a double threat, not only running over opponents but additionally catching passes from Tom Brady.
