coins A weekly column dedicated to “digging out” current information about precious metals, coins and other numismatics.

Much has been written about bubbles, bubbles in the stock market, bubbles in the housing market, etc. Bubbles occur when too many people jump into a market where they think it’s easy to make money, with the end result being just the opposite when the market crashes and there are no buyers or buyers paying a fraction of the items’ original worth. And this is not a new phenomenon. The same thing occurred in the 1600s with the Dutch Tulip Mania when people paid huge sums for tulip bulbs thinking they were going to get rich by selling them at a higher amount to someone else. I guess you can see where this was headed. And the end was not pretty. And the ends to recent bubbles have not been pretty either.

Golf course RFPs are detail-oriented for a reason

I’m happy to report that revenue at the Links is up 43 percent. Any increase in revenue is a positive one which benefits everyone, from the taxpayers to the residents to even golf brokers.

Touché, Gary Shea, touché. You now have let everyone know that your involvement with the Links is purely financial. I’m glad you identified me as a friend, fireman and a real estate appraiser; however, we are talking golf and the benefits the Links at Brigantine Beach offers to the island. I do not wish to engage in a character debate, as it’s been my honor and privilege to serve this community on many levels since I was 15 years old. The only goal I have going forward is to promote and educate anyone who will listen to the facts and events that have taken place since the City of Brigantine purchased the Brigantine County Club in 2002.

To the editor:

If you want to see your taxes go down, vote ‘No’ in this special election. Because if you let the mayor and Andy Simpson and the rest of the Republicans have their way again, your taxes will never come down.
