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.

So much for inflategate; on to lodge business. Friday, Feb. 6 is the second and final round of interviews for membership candidates. The committee will sit from 7 p.m. until all candidates have been seen.

At our meeting Tuesday, Feb. 10, we will vote on those found acceptable by the committee and hold the nomination of officers. It is still not too late to throw your hat in the ring. See ER Don ASAP if you decide to run for an office.

Letter: It’s high noon for the golf course

Letter: It’s high noon for the golf course Letter: It’s high noon for the golf course To the editor:

Apparently sometime in the next couple of weeks City Council will finally vote on whether to accept the proposal by Ron Jaworski Management to take over operations at golf course on a long-term lease. Why the city of Brigantine would not be thrilled to have a high-profile, successful golf course ownership group like Ron Jaworski Management as part of the community is absolutely beyond me, but my understanding is that the new majority and their supporters are against the proposal and it will probably be voted down.

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.
