Lower 2/15/2006

By Christine Cote

Hey, it’s winter. What a surprise.

Hope you all had a pleasant Valentine’s Day.

As you are reading this I’m spending two weeks in Africa, so if you try to call me and can’t reach me, I’ll be back Feb. 27.


Congratulations to the members of Lower Cape May Regional High School’s mock trial team who worked really hard and did their best.

We should all be proud of them. I am.


Tomorrow the Women’s Community Club of Cape May has invited Glenn Leipe of the forestry service to speak at its meeting at Price Hall at Cold Spring Presbyterian Church on Seashore Road.

Leipe will be accompanied by his firedog.

The meeting starts at 1 p.m. but get there at 12:30 for some refreshments and to meet the members.

If you can’t make the meeting, but are interested in finding out more about the club or in joining, call Jean at 522-0290 or Dot at 886-4554.


If you haven’t signed your kid up for Little League yet, your last chance is Friday at 6-8 p.m. or Saturday from 10 a.m. till noon at the VVA Hall on Seashore Road in Erma.

Hungry for pancakes? Stop by the clubhouse of the Cape May Beach Property Owners Association in Townbank anytime Saturday from 8 a.m. till noon.

Call 886-3874 for more information.


I got an e-mail from the DEP (I’m on their list) that it is considering a moratorium on horseshoe crab commercial bait fishery for 2006 and 2007.

The purpose is to improve conditions for the red knot and other shorebirds, which have been dwindling in numbers along our western shore.

If you have an opinion on this and want to share it with the DEP, written comments are accepted until April 7.

Write to: NJDEP, Gary J. Brower, Esq., ATTN: DEP Docket No. 01-06-01/581, Office of Legal Affairs, PO Box 402, Trenton, N.J. 08625-0402.


The Planning Board meets tomorrow in the municipal hall meeting room at 7 p.m. and has a number of discussion items on its agenda, including zoning changes and the endorsement of the acquisition of Ponderlodge.

It will also consider a request to expand Villas Liquors.


That’s it for now. You can call me at the number above but I won’t be able to return calls until the end of the month when I return.

The fax machine at that number will be off to keep down the spam that spits out of it daily while I’m away.

I’m always in touch by e-mail though at
