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.

Army-Navy should be a game to remember

elks No, I didn't forget the Army-Navy game in last week's column. I wanted to save it as this week's headliner.  But first let's backtrack a few days to Sunday.

This year's Memorial Service was shameful. With a membership of 867, you mean to tell me that only 10 members plus the officers were able to attend to honor our absent brothers?  I guess Yogi Berra got it right when asked by a reporter why he went to all his friend's services, he said, "I figure that if I don't go to theirs, they certainly won't come to mine."  Amen Yogi.

In allowing time to collect my thoughts and to consider this violent attack on Har Nof synagogue that initially left me speechless, I find that I cannot escape the irreparable rending of the universal fabric of our collective spirituality.
