Letter: Golf club plan wasn’t given a shot Letter: Golf club plan wasn’t given a shot To the editor:

At the last council meeting most of the meeting was about the golf course. Almost everyone that had gotten up to speak said they would like Ron Jaworski to lease the golf course because of his knowledge and the experience because he has three or four other golf courses. He would have saved the taxpayers money and he would have done capital improvements. I believe with all he had to offer he would have brought more business into the city.

Who pays?

Regarding the city-owned golf course, the Republicans, the majority party on city council, say their primary concern is to “put taxpayers first by rejecting the Ron Jaworski Golf proposal.”

Letter: Golf Links proposal not up to par Letter: Golf Links proposal not up to par To the editor:

The main reason for attending this meeting was to finally hear about the future of the Links golf course. The meeting started with a complete and factual report by Matt Galvin, concerning the lease proposal history and the future of golf. I think Matt was being optimistic in saying that the downturn in the golf industry seems to be flatting out. In researching the industry I found that in 2014, nationwide only 14 new courses were opened with another 158 being closed.

Letter: Golf course plans have plenty of holes Letter: Golf course plans have plenty of holes To the editor:

I don't see how anyone who either attended or watched last Wednesday's City Council meeting could feel good about the future of the Brigantine golf course despite the best efforts of the people that run the everyday operations.

 

Little was discussed about the real elephant in the room which are the aging pumps and pipes that make up the golf course's irrigation system.  Both have outlived their usefulness and are operating on borrowed time.

Letter: GOP gives jobs to friends Letter: GOP gives jobs to friends To the editor:

Well, the Republicans are in control and right away they fire some of the good people who ran the city. They’re also giving jobs to contractors who were not given jobs since the Democrats were in.

Brigantine Garden Club news, Feb. 17 Brigantine Garden Club news, Feb. 17 Bed tenders are the lifeblood of our organization. Without their hard work and dedication, this island that we love would be much less beautiful. Have you noticed that every bed is different? That is because every bed tender is different. Each tender makes his or her own choice as to flowers and style for the bed. With so many beautiful plants to pick from, we get a wonderful variety to appreciate. Bed tenders receive a small stipend each season; many of them go over and above this amount at their own expense. Some bring flowers from their own home gardens when they do separations. Sometimes we get donations from kind people.
