Shopping the Shore for Good of LBI; Why We Have to Ferret Out Veterinarians  

The Fish Story

CLAUS FOR CONCERN: This entire hubbub over hellish gaps in the holiday supply chain of holiday goods has me, along with a boatload of others, detecting an all too convenient act of reaching early Santafication. Sound suspicions have big market merchants parlaying mere transport and delivery slowness into empty shelf horrors for buyers. This unceremonious fear mongering is successfully goosing […]

‘Daylight Complainings’ Time During a Great Month on LBI

Liquid Lines

Did you feel like Sunday night’s sunset was more than just another pretty sunset? It kind of felt like a peace offering.

End This Nonsense


To the Editor: $450,000 for each person on our southern border affected by the family separation policy – are the people behind this out of their minds? I read that a parent separated from a child could possibly be awarded $900,000 for the two of them! It was terrible to separate a child or children from a parent. However, I […]

Halloween Foot Note


To the Editor: Will the person or people who took the “foot” from the Halloween grave display at the entrance to Mallard Island please return it. No questions asked. I’m not sure if the foot belonged to “Issy Gone,” “Frank N. Stine” or “Bone Voyage.” But if it’s not returned one of the three buried there will haunt you until […]
