Scene of witch trials:



Revere rode here first:

Passed right down Route 1, about a mile from here.

Belmar residents pay something north of $8 million every year in state income tax.  Belmar residents now get back from that fund only $939,000, down $26,000 from last year.  Belmar residents are told the problem is they’re taking for than their fair share and that their property taxes are too low.


You can’t say I’m not at least trying to get the information to you.


And speaking of redevelopment…..

This came in my mail yesterday:

What Day Did Mike’s Open?

Was is Wednesday, November 20th like this piece says?



Just wondering because someone (I don’t know who) OPRAed the permits and approvals, including the CO, also on November 20.


And it looks like the CO wasn’t issued until two days later, November 22.
