 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.

 Most mornings this week, the Atlantic looked like a big, choppy, beautiful lake. 

 Most mornings this week, the Atlantic looked like a big, choppy, beautiful lake.

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.

Since the first week of July, there have been numerous lifeguard competitions held, as many as three to four per week.

While winning an individual event or a team championship at any of those previous competitions is a worthy accomplishment, most likely any individual or patrol would trade any of those victories for the ultimate success this Friday night.

The South Jersey Lifeguard Championships, the oldest and most prestigious of all lifeguard competitions held in the South Jersey Lifeguard Chiefs’ Association, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9 in Margate.

fruit If you want to start a small riot, say out loud that Jersey tomatoes aren’t the best tomatoes grown on the planet. Garden Staters are proud of the food grown locally and plenty of rain and equal sunshine has produced a bumper crop of almost everything New Jersey farmers have to offer. Fresh foods offer more than good eats at supermarkets and roadside stands-they are a big reason some people visit New Jersey, along with the beaches and attractions.
