Letter: Island moved in a positive direction under Mayor Guenther Letter: Island moved in a positive direction under Mayor Guenther To the editor:

After reading several articles in our local paper and viewing recent City Council meetings, I feel compelled to write to support Mayor Phil Guenther, Councilman Andy Simpson and our island’s population.
I was not born and raised here, but my family had a summer home for years until we were able to move here permanently. Like most people who spend their summers on our lovely island, we loved the feeling we had coming over the bridge and feeling that we were home.

Another Labor Day has come and gone, and with its passing, summer is now unofficially over. But don't despair, the best time of the year is upon us.  The crowds and related traffic are gone, the greenheads are getting fewer, the days are warm, not hot, the nights are cooler for good sleeping, and the water is at its warmest. So turn off that tired air conditioner, open the windows and enjoy!

Letter: Mayor reaches out to Brigantine’s unemployed Letter: Mayor reaches out to Brigantine’s unemployed To the editor:

I believe a big “Thank You” is in order to Mayor Phil Guenther for, as always, showing his concern for the hundreds of Brigantine residents who will soon be unemployed.

On Monday, Aug. 13 Mayor Phil Guenther invited casino workers to a town meeting held at the Brigantine Community Center. The meeting was a gesture of goodwill and support for the soon-to-be-unemployed workers, as three Atlantic City casinos (Showboat Hotel and Casino, Revel Hotel and Casino, and Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino) are slated to close during the coming weeks.

Whew! Bayfest No. 22 is in the history books. Great job by chairman Dave Biggins and his entire crew of hard working volunteers. As usual, Harry kept the reins on the rains and Sunday was absolutely gorgeous. Many thanks to all who attended and made this a big success for all of our charities.

It is hard to believe that today starts the Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end to another summer. What have you got planned? Don't forget that Friday and Saturday, food returns (beats cooking).

Letter: Shark Park nets are unsafe

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Staff Reports Thursday, August 28, 2014 12:00 am

To the editor:

Today I took my children to Shark Park to enjoy some rides and play some basketball. I was surprised to see the deplorable conditions of the basketball nets. I realize that the park is undergoing renovations, but I feel that those nets are unsightly and unsafe. The rims are set so low that my son scraped his hand while dunking a ball into the net. After receiving yet another tax increase this year, I think the City of Brigantine should do better for our children so that they can continue to enjoy the park.
