Belmar Planning Board Meeting Of Jan 30, 2013

So it was all a big mistake.

Belmar Council Meeting Of Jan 30, 2013

Belmar Council Meeting Of Jan 16, 2013

Sorry so late.


Sea foam, Belmar style.   With BOOZE!   There will be two secret special meetings Wednesday night, the Planning Board at 6:00 and the Council at 7:00, to rush through their plans to line Ocean Ave with bars!  No kidding! Anyone who might have an opinion on the subject might want to attend these meetings. […]

Tiananmen Square Survivor Speaks Out!

“The Chinese Constitution has all the same rights in it as the U.S. Constitution……except one.”  

A Great Inauguration Speech!

No, Not Obama’s.  That was just more of his usual drivel. I’m refering to Warren G.

One very reliable source for the true economic figures is […]

The SID Flinches

Wednesday evening the SID withdrew it’s proposed $176,000 budget, thus avoiding an embarrassing rejection by the council.  Apparently even the Democrats couldn’t go along with a 30% increase over last year’s $135,000 budget.  I thought it was kind of crappy to drag all those interested people to the meeting, many of them having prepared to […]

House Passes The Pork (And Gravy!)

mmmmmm……..smells good!  Pass some over to me! From the Patch: The aid was approved in two measures, the first in the form of a $17 billion package designed to provide immediate aid primarily to victims of Sandy in New York and New Jersey, and the second, overarching package, adding an additional $33.7 billion in aid […]
