To the editor:

First off, I’m an advocate for golf. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been attached to the game or the business side of the sport. Our golf course, The Links, has been a fixture in the City of Brigantine since 1927. One does not have to look too far to see that the debate regarding The Links going forward will be tumultuous, to say the least.

If you’ve been reading the local papers lately, you might think that the Brigantine Public Schools aren’t doing their job. I beg to differ.

We write to recommend the consolidation of the Brigantine school district’s two elementary schools into one such school within the same building. We believe that consolidation is warranted for the following reasons.

To the editor:

Know why there were no firemen, policemen or Beach Patrol people at the budget meeting? Because ‘it’s all about me.’ They don’t care how much the taxpayers have to pay each year. They just want to get what they want for themselves.
