To the editor:

A huge “thank you” goes to the Ocean City postal workers, the members of the Ecumenical Council, Food Cupboard volunteers and members of the community (youth and adults alike), who gave so generously of their time to assist with the Dec. 6 Postal Food Drive by weighing, sorting and organizing the food donations.

Misrepresentation in skatepark process

To the editor:

Did you ever wonder why it is the new skateboard park will be located at Sixth Street and Asbury Avenue? Do you remember the statement that we had to quickly identify a site so we could apply for funding from the county before the window closed, but that we could select another site after the funding was in place? Well, that apparently wasn’t true. The funding was specific to the site.

Guest Column: The cost of Black Friday is getting too high

Written by Claire Lowe Thursday, November 27, 2014 12:00 am

It’s something we all have been thinking, but who will say it out loud: Black Friday deals aren’t just ruining Thanksgiving, they are ruining Black Friday.

I was one of those Black Friday shoppers. Not the crazy ones, who would wait in long lines in the freezing cold and push over old ladies in wheelchairs to get the best deal. But I did get up extra early on the Friday after Thanksgiving, no matter how much wine I drank or dessert I ate, to get to my favorite stores for doorbusters and major discounts.

Locals should value historic district

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Tuesday, November 04, 2014 12:00 am

To the editor:

I don’t know of any community that outdoes Ocean City, where its entire population seems to agree in their professed love for the town. Every municipality has its booster class, but in how many towns does that love get passed down for generations? In addition, there are hundreds of thousands of people from other parts of the country who love Ocean City, too. That’s why the people who live here carry a bigger responsibility to preserve whatever it is that produces that love.

Some facts on historic districts

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Monday, October 06, 2014 11:00 pm

To the editor:

Is the proposal recently put forth by members of the City Council to reduce the city’s historic district just another way to have more of the ugly duplexes that have destroyed the simple seashore community that Ocean City once was? This is a question that needs to be answered before any changes are thought of to adjust or modify the current historic district.
