News Updates as of 25 July 2010

  • Kayla Killian of Cliffwood Beach achieved the Honors List for the spring term at Fairleigh Dickinson University, per the Bayshore Courier News.
  • Is it always going to take nearly three weeks to post approved minutes of MAPL Board of Trustees meetings? The June minutes are still not up and they were presumably approved on 7 July. The May minutes were posted at the end of June. And, btw, who is listed as Director on the board roster on the website?
  • Today is the last day of the Monmouth County Fair! APP says there are cooling stations set up to keep you from getting overheated. To be honest, I stayed home Saturday due to the predicted sweltering temps; our July fair is hot enough when the weather's cooperative. Now they're calling for rain on Sunday.
  • I saw SALT and Inception this weekend. Both are fast paced, tightly woven thrillers. I think I kept up with the logic in both pretty well, but it was a lot of work. I've had my dose of movies for a while.  My wife and I were trying to place the guy who played Arthur - Joseph Gordon-Levitt. IMDB says he was the kid in Angels in the Outfield, but I think I remember him best from 3rd Rock. His recent stuff includes GI Joe.
  • The signs are up and running at the new Goodwill Store at Cliffwood Avenue and Route 35 N.
  • Did you realize that the 84 Lumber store in Cliffwood shut its doors? Just another vacant store near that bad luck intersection of Route 35.  Apparently the vacant lot where the old Burlew's Pizzeria used to stand and construction of a more workable intersection, plus a bunch of other improvements are all waiting on a state roads project that now may never happen. It seems unlikely that Trenton will fund the project, which has been planned for some time.
  • The Firemen's Fair runs this week in Keyport beginning Monday 26 July, per APP. Check out the festivities, which include music and food & drink and fireworks.
