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.

You've all heard the old expression; it's either feast or famine.  Well, last week's famine is this week's feast.  All of a sudden the lodge calendar has started to fill in from now until year's end.  As usual, there is Friday food, Saturday snacks and on Sundays there is the football feast.  Then on Friday Oct. 24 we have round-one of candidate investigations beginning at 7:30 PM.  The next night is the adult Halloween party (signup board and tickets available in the lounge).
