 : Amanda Brough stars in ‘Finding Faith.’ : Amanda Brough stars in ‘Finding Faith.’  CAPE MAY -  Faith is a mysterious woman with no past – at least it seems that way. Who is she, and where did she come from?

The questions multiply in “Finding Faith,” a Cape Island Theatre production that blends science fiction, mystery and comedy as it breaks down the boundaries between fantasy, reality, the past and the present.

Written by Ray Crew, the play is part of a three-course dinner theater program running Fridays in September at the Cold Spring Grange Restaurant, 735 Seashore Road, Cape May.

 Found it in … Wildwood 


 This huge inflatable water slide was seen on the beach at Leaming Avenue last Friday.

WILDWOOD - Think you’ve seen everything in Wildwood? Think again. This huge inflatable water slide was seen on the beach at Leaming Avenue last Friday. The blue and yellow slide is a short way from the boardwalk and so massive it’s hard to miss. City officials said the ride will continue to stay open through September, weather permitting. So if you feel the need to get in one last trip to the beach, you can kill two birds with one stone and take a ride down the slide, too. The price is $5 for one ride or $25 for an unlimited day pass.

Once upon a time, I was trying to learn how to drive a standard transmission.

I was after clear, concise instructions. How fast should the car be moving before changing from first to second? How many rpm? How quickly do I release the clutch in relationship to depressing the gas?

The answer was always the same: You just have to get a feel for it.

WILDWOOD - Cainin Noon lifeguarded for five summers while in his early- to mid-20s.

He liked the job, but he found that his mind would drift during the summer months as he longed to sit on a lifeguard stand.

Super Boys

by Brad Ricca, St. Martin’s Press

Subtitled “The Amazing Adventures of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Creators of Superman,” this hefty bio will be a treat for comic book fans and anyone who loves a great rags-to-riches-to-rags story. Just as in the comics, “Super Boys” has its heroes and villains. In the hero category: the imaginative, obsessive, adorably geeky writer and artist who created the Man of Steel while in their teens. The boys who created Superman might have become super-rich if not for one grievous mistake: they agreed to accept $130 from DC Comics (in the villain category) for exclusive rights to the cartoon.
