It’s a sad day when two candidates can’t find the time to debate important local issues.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened when the Republican slate of candidates in Point Pleasant refused to work with the League of Women Voters to set up a debate between the four candidates vying for two Council seats. Last year, both sides promised there would be a debate this year. Now that it’s time for the debate, the local Republican ticket is running for cover. That’s not cool.
Point Pleasant residents deserve a robust debate on the many important issues facing our town. Refusing to debate is a slap in the face to the residents and their concerns.
Nothing like a car in the water to liven up the day!

Point Beach is having a Council candidate forum tonight.
Anyone know when the Boro is having a candidate forum? Both parties agreed last year to hold one this year. We’re now just over 3 weeks from the election and no forum that I’m aware of is on the calendar.
So, when is the candidates forum for the Boro Council candidates?
If Roxbury and Mount Arlington can discuss unifying, can Point Pleasant and Point Pleasant Beach have the same conversation?
The Point Pleasant Police Department is investigating several residential daytime burglaries that have occurred during a three day period. On Wednesday, June 13th, 2012 a home in the 200 block of River Ave was burglarized. On Thursday, June 14th, 2012 an attempted burglary occurred in the 1100 block of Sunset Ave and a burglary occurred in the 1300 block of Sunset Ave. On Friday, June 15th, 2012 a home in the 1200 block of Bay Ave was burglarized. All burglaries occurred during the daytime hours while the residences were not occupied. Jewelry, cash and electronics were stolen from within.
Although the police department is working on several leads generated through the investigations, residents are encouraged to report any suspicious subjects or vehicles to the Point Pleasant Police Department at 732-892-0060. Any residents who have information regarding one of the burglaries are requested to contact Detective Ed Miller or Detective Michelle Hill of the Point Pleasant Police Department.
A story in Friday’s Ocean Star quotes Laura Beeden regarding the Nazi image she posted to her website. In it she states, “People were offended so I took it down last week.”
Oh, really? The vile image was taken down last week…?
Then what’s this?
UPDATE: The vile Nazi image has finally been removed from Laura Beeden’s website. Interesting how something that circulated underground for nearly two years was removed within a week of being made public, proving yet again that rats always scurry for cover when exposed to the light.
A municipal budget workshop will be held tonight at Boro Hall. The workshop starts at 7:30pm with the agenda items listed below. Public attendance at the workshops so far has been abysmal.
Ever get the feeling that’s the way they want it?
Who would create an image featuring Boro residents in front of a Nazi flag? Who would stoop to such a level?
That’s the real question.
