Question: Is Denny's Coming to Barnegat?

From a reader:

Hello. I believe in the December 2013 issue of The Barnegat Leader I read an article that said that the mayor at that time was looking into having a Denny's and town village built where the old Sweet Jenny's used to be.

Is the new mayor going to proceed with that initiative and also work on getting stores built in the empty space next to CVS ?

Mac, Did you know that all of those red lights are timed at 1 ½ minutes? That means if you were unfortunate enough to catch every red light from Rt 9 to Lighthouse for the full time, which is highly unlikely, it would only take 9 minutes out of your very important life.

Wow! I didn’t have a clue. A minute and a half per traffic light. Who would have thought? Thanks for sharing Rick. I’ve got to admit though that I was happier when I still believed each light was just too long. Now I understand why so many cut through the parking lots. However, I’ll make an effort to apply your logic the next time I find myself with nothing better to do in my important life. Regardless, I’m happy that you had such a successful evening last night. From your last two posts I can see you saved a whole minute on your last test run. Eight minutes. WTG.

The turf field at Lower Shore Rd. is a big mistake. First, they paid 28K to transport it here and left it lay for awhile until it couldn't be used. Next, they got a turf field from Giant Stadium and promised it would be ready in Sept. and only would spend 20K. Now they have spent 65K and it's still not finished and Mayor McCabe is a big promoter. She doesn't keep her word and then Breeden makes excuses. As far as the used MC's are concerned, if they were good then why did Stafford get rid of them. We have bicycles, ATV's and now MC's. With only 43 Officers who is going to use them. The excuse that they would be used to patrol the Barnegat Trail is bogus. MC's are used for traffic and parades. The pros are they can get through traffic faster then a patrol car. The cons are they have limited use. You still have to call for a patrol car to transport a prisoner, they can't carry much equipment, and they are dangerous and cause many injuries.

The current agenda has two non certified police to be hired at a combined salary of 88K and an additional part type typist (no salary mentioned). Who are thew police replacing? If no one then this is another 100K hit to the budget plus benefits.
