If FEMA Won’t Pay…..

Maybe we can still build some MODEST buildings up there and sell the naming rights.  There could be the “Hang Ten” Pavilion, and maybe the “Ron Jon” Pavilion, or maybe Coppertone or Speedo Pavilions.  As long as we keep it beachy and not approach banks or insurance companies, it could be kept fairly tasteful. Of […]

We’re Not In The Money!

FEMA cops out. When the mayor told us the other night that FEMA was going to pay for 90% of the cost of the new pavilions he was sorta half-right. Yeah, well, he was wrong about the 9, but he was spot-on about the 0 part of it! Without FEMA money, Jersey Shore beach pavilions […]

Asbury Park Press Or Weekly World News?

I found this headline in today’s Press and thought this couldn’t be true: Little Silver woman gets 57-month term for writing oxycodone prescriptions   So I looked in to it a little further and found this photo of this little silver woman being led, in chains, to her court appearance.

Hey, Matt. What’s The Weather?

Either the mayor’s Twitter followers are all working down in the coal mines or they’re in jail or something. May 26:  Tomorrow, Memorial Day, is going to be a perfect beach day. Come join us in #Belmar on our new 1.3 mile boardwalk. June 2:  Sunny and 85 today in #Belmar June 4:  Vote in […]

Belmar’s Disenfranchised Republican Voters

One of several problems with winner-take-all democracy is that the majority, no matter how slim, can use their slight electoral advantage to completely lord over the minority and take them places they don’t want to go.  (And take their money too, while they’re at it.)  This is why the founders gave us not a democracy, […]
