Boardwalk dress code is overdue

To the editor,

I read the article about proper attire on the Wildwood boardwalk. I think it's a great idea and long overdue. I remember, back in the day, when you couldn't even come up from the beach to get something to eat without shoes and a shirt.  That's how it should still be…what happened to that rule?

To the editor,

I think this new ordinance about attire on the boardwalk is awesome. I am a seasonal renter in North Wildwood and I am appalled at the way some people dress on the boardwalk. It's pretty sad when you have to make excuses to your children on why a person chooses to look like a streetwalker.

To the editor,

I enjoyed reading your article on the marbles tournament and want to commend the Wildwood School District for encouraging kids to participate in the upcoming National Marbles Tournament.

Although, as was stated in the story, there has never been a New Jersey (or Wildwood) National Marbles Champion, it was a New Jersey kid and his well-known mentor who first fueled the inspiration for creating the national tournament.

Writer’s outrage misplaced, out of date

To the editor:

Letter writer William Murphy's collective writings suffer from one-way outrage, especially when he considers Bush actions as important topics of the day.  Forget that Clinton ignoring Osama bin Laden and stripping security agencies led to 9/11.  Forget that Obama owes all his gratitude for capturing bin Laden to Seal Team 6 and Bush's interrogations.  Murphy says Bush missed one briefing.  Maybe.  How about 200-plus security requests in Benghazi Obama ignored?  No one's "giving" 5-year-olds guns except in Murphy's world, but the justice department ran guns to drug lords and Islamic militants.  Silence from Murphy.

 What’s in a name? Some may have asked that back in the 19th century when they didn’t have a name and were looking for one.

Certainly the name wasn’t Wildwood, at least for another decade.
