Letter: City auditor, manager did a fine job Letter: City auditor, manager did a fine job To the editor:

Elections have consequences, as in November 2104, particularly when control of a governing body passes from one political party to another. Changes are made in important appointed positions. Let’s not forget the immediate predecessors of the new appointees who are now gone, subject to the political winds. We refer to two positions, both of which should be appointments based solely on merit. They are the municipal auditor and the city manager.

Brigantine Garden Club news Brigantine Garden Club news I keep seeing on Facebook and in the news a countdown of how many days until spring. Instead of wishing our lives away, perhaps we should focus on the beauty of this season. Breathe in the cold crisp air and feel invigorated. Really see a snow-covered pine tree. Look for bird tracks in the snow. Be grateful to experience all of the seasons in this area. How many people have ever had the privilege of seeing a beach covered in snow or the bay with ice at the edges? Beauty surrounds us; take a moment to discover it!

Happy New Year. The year 2015 in the Garden Club is Cause For Celebration. Thirty-five years ago our humble club was started by a group of dedicated gardeners.  Here we are 35 years later still following the tradition of making Brigantine a more beautiful place to live by tending gardens throughout the island. That's 35 years. Happy anniversary.

Our newest club member, Ebenezer S. (Dickens, I can't remember the last name...) tells us this strange and spooky story.  One morning he was visited by a daffodil named the Flower of Garden Club Past.

This is a response to Mayor Guenther's article in the Jan. 2 Beachcomber, “Together we can move Brigantine forward.”

To quote the mayor, “New members of City Council will be seated in January, bringing fresh ideas and a less divisive approach to city government. With less focus on partisan politics and more unity of purpose, we can begin to address the big issues that impact our budget and taxes.”

Dr. Frank Kern and his staff thanked patients and members of the Brigantine Democratic Club for their support in collecting toys and checks for the 2014 Toys for Tots campaign. Here, program coordinator Ron Powell, retired from the U.S. Marine Corps, joins Councilman Joe Picardi and Councilman Tony Pullella. The office donation box was filled to the brim three times, making this year’s collection the best yet.

Thanks for supporting Zumba for Deana Thanks for supporting Zumba for Deana Once again, Brigantine has shown what a great community we live in. The Zumba event for Deana Donofrio Saturday was a huge success. It was amazing the amount of people who came out to support our friend who has been having many medical issues in the past two months. She is on the mend but has a long road ahead of her.
