Cavalier became a lieutenant in 1972 and was named captain in 1976 before leaving the patrol for six years after the summer of 1978. He rejoined the patrol as chief in 1985.

Cavalier’s love for the beach started as a 14-year-old in the early 1960s, when he worked at an umbrella rental stand on the North Wildwood beach. He joined the patrol a year after graduating from Wildwood Catholic High School.

It was a great day at Reef Site 11 for the Wheeler family with keeper flounder up to 24 inches while fishing on their boat Big Bone out of Wildwood.  It was a great day at Reef Site 11 for the Wheeler family with keeper flounder up to 24 inches while fishing on their boat Big Bone out of Wildwood.  Waters inshore and offshore are alive with big fish

When Robin Scott of Ray Scott's Dock in Margate wrote in a report, "Early August is the myth-busting time of the year," anglers in the area couldn't agree more. Just when some fishermen thought the striped bass and keeper flounder moved out of the back bay, some large fish are being netted.

There is no cut and dry pattern this season, and anything goes – the waters in the back bay, inshore and offshore are alive with big fish, and lots of them.

Tammy Carbohn of Avalon Hodge Podge is also in agreement with all of the activity of late. She said there were even more fluke taken this past week from the back bay and inlet. The biggest, she said, was caught by James Mehale of Willow Grove, Pa. His fish weighed in at 5.5 pounds, 24 inches and was caught using croaker for bait at Paddy’s Hole behind Avalon. Charlie Davison also limited out with five keepers from the Avalon Yacht Club area using minnows and cut mackerel. Tautog were caught off the Eighth Street jetty using either crabs or shrimp.

 East Lynne Theater Company's

The year is 1782, and the village of Tarrytown is surrounded by ghosts from the past – including the Headless Horseman, the ghost of a Hessian soldier who was killed during the Revolutionary War who roams the countryside at night looking for a head.

When the town’s new schoolteacher, Ichabod Crane, suddenly disappears, is the Headless Horseman to blame, or something or someone else? 

The East Lynne Theater Company will present “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” based on Washington Irving's supernatural tale, adapted by James Rana, who created last season's "The Poe Mysteries."  Like "Poe," this production, under the direction of Gayle Stahlhuth, travels up to Ocean Professional Theatre Company in Barnegat in late October.

A couple of times this summer, I was ready to comment on how good the waves have been. It looked like a summer without doldrums.
Good thing I hadn’t gotten around to it. Somebody would have had my head by now.

 ‘Smurfs 2’ will leave viewers feeling blue ‘Smurfs 2’ will leave viewers feeling blue

There are many children's movies out there that satisfy both young and old, and that tell a worthwhile story with humor and grace without dumbing down the experience. “Smurfs 2” is not one of them.

Every bit as loud, obnoxious and unnecessary as its predecessor, “Smurfs 2” may entertain the youngest children, but it makes the unfortunate assumption that kids will eat any CGI-stuffed garbage that is thrown their way. Sure, it’s just a kids movie. But kids aren't stupid. They crave quality entertainment as much as the next person.
