Last summer marked the first production of the new community theater in Brigantine, the BB Lighthouse Players. "Night Watch," by Louise Fletcher, directed by Anthony Vraim and Chikita Wallace, was put on in the gymnasium at the Community Center. The people of Brigantine showed up in record numbers to see this play, which got good reviews.

The Lighthouse Players learned from their first time out that the gym is not the best place to put on a play, due to the noisy air conditioners and the huge space they had to fight for the actors to be heard.

The Gold and Silver Mine- Some collectibles just have to be saved

The Gold and Silver Mine- Some collectibles just have to be saved The Gold and Silver Mine- Some collectibles just have to be saved I’ve written many times and told countless individuals that collecting is about doing something you enjoy. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money and it certainly shouldn’t be considered investing, but it should be enjoyable and something you look forward to doing.

I’ll admit to collecting many things while growing up, coins, stamps, matchbook covers, sports and non sports cards - you name it. I had a small bedroom, but it was filled with my treasures, and they gave me hours of pleasure, putting them in albums, looking up their values - although  at that time I had no reason to part with any of them. I guess had I continued down that path I could have become one of those hoarders you see on television.

Although I’ve been able to transform my hobby into a successful business and I no longer agonize about selling my inventory, there are a few items I keep when I come across them.
