Woodbine 3.22.2006

By Rick Racela

It’s spring, the first daffodils spotted being the miniature ones in front of the post office.
Crocuses are up in the municipal holly patch.
Pansies, the non-winter variety, are showing up in the supermarket.
Happy 84th birthday (again, a “Dog”) to my Mom today, and may many more be ahead.

Licences were issued for 43 pets at the recent rabies clinic, and 76 received their shots.
Licenses, which are annual, are currently due for renewal.
License fees are:
Dogs, spayed or neutered, $8.20 and for non-fixed, $11.20.
Cats, regardless, $5.
After Mach. 31, a $5 late fee will be added to all animal licenses.
Rabies shots must be current to obtain licenses.
Little Cat Or Not takes this opportunity to thank hubby for rescuing him from the clinic, and even more so for his new, not-so-little cat sized carrier, which enabled him to endure his “working time” there in much more spacious comfort than in year’s past.

The Borough of Woodbine received Certificates of Achievement in three areas from the Atlantic County Municipal Joint Insurance Fund (JIF).
The first was in recognition of outstanding performance by the employees and volunteers of the borough whose efforts resulted in the best claims reporting record in 2005.
The second was in recognition of outstanding performance by the employees and volunteers of the borough whose safety efforts resulted in zero “lost time” accidents in 2005.
The third was in recognition of outstanding performance by the employes and volunteers of the borough whose loss ratio average from 2003-2005 beat the JIF’s three-year loss ratio average.

Amber Jane’s (across from Cap’n Scrap) is having a special weekend March 25 and 26.
Celebrate the warmer weather (or belated snow – you never know this time of year!) with a tour of Woodbine’s antique, collectable, and gift shops.
Handmade items new at Amber Jane’s include wine bottle covers, pillows made from antique napkins and hankies (they are soooooo soft,) and glove sachets.
Hubby’s been buying up the cast iron and cookbooks there as part of his cook-through-spring break initiative.

It’s spring, whether the weather is in tune again by the time you read this or not.
The recent run of warmer days and evenings let us do the March frog run in a timely manner, actually reaching the 45 degrees an hour after dark required by the State frog-counting commissars.
We went out March 11 (the eve of niece Molly’s 18th birthday,) and heard a leopard frog, woodfrogs, and full choruses of spring peepers.
Daffodils and peepers do indeed a spring make.
