Coins Coins

I’ve written extensively about the grading of coins and how it helps insure the buyer is getting what he pays for and how someone with limited experience with coins can buy with confidence. And by grading I mean the grading done by independent grading companies who have no financial attachment to the coin, their compensation coming from providing the service.

To the editor:

I am a sophomore at Franklin and Marshall College pursuing medicine. I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa McClay at the Farmer’s Market two weeks ago by accident, though I have known for some time that she is campaigning for mayor of our city. I wanted to let everyone who reads this newspaper know that Mrs. McClay is dedicated to serving our community with genuine care, trust, and vision.

Letter to the editor Letter to the editor This is a response to the letter “Golf.... ‘Common Sense’” by Michael J. Lange Jr., which was published last week in a local newspaper.

Some background information: The golf course in Brigantine was designed by Wayne Stiles in 1927. I believe our golf course is an asset to the city, and it should always remain as open space and a golf facility.

mmsc mmsc BRIGANTINE - The private, nonprofit Marine Mammal Stranding Center is the only organization in the State of New Jersey authorized to rescue and rehabilitate stranded marine mammals and sea turtles. Since its founding in 1978, it has cared for more than 4,000 animals, including whales, dolphins, seals and sea turtles. The center’s work has been supported by donations, grants, memberships and the museum gift shop to raise funds. However with no permanent funding in place, donations are needed now more than ever to keep this vital service available.

In an effort to continue the work that they do, the center has stepped up fundraising events to raise needed resources. One of the larger fundraising efforts to benefit the center will be held Sunday, Oct. 5: the MMSC’s third annual “Dancing with Dolphins” event.
