Happy Birthday to us! Today is the 48th anniversary of WOBM-FM hitting the airwaves as Ocean County’s first radio station began broadcasting on March 1, 1968 from that little white building off of Route 9 in Bayville that was our home until just a few years ago.
The 88th Academy Awards, a 3-hour plus gala in which Hollywood pats itself on the back, featured some major surprises on a night when the theme was clearly the controversy over the film industry’s lack of diversity.
I somehow missed a story that surfaced earlier this week about a New Jersey Assemblyman wanting to lower the drinking age to 18 in the state. I honestly knew nothing about it until my wife mentioned in to me Thursday and I actually questioned the accuracy of the story until doing a bit of research.
If you attended last night’s talent show at Toms River High School North and were not notified in advance there was another event taking place on the campus you might have been jolted when you pulled into the parking lot.
You often here the expression “it’s a game of inches” used in sports but rarely when it comes to auto racing yet it was a matter of inches that decided Sunday’s Daytona 500 and coming out on the short end was a Southern Regional High School alumnus.
One of the most amazing things about Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency is that he’s by far the wealthiest individual seeking the office yet he’s not had to spend all that much to rise to the top among Republican contenders...
Here’s a guaranteed bad start to your morning. You pull up to a Dunkin' Donuts and order coffee at the drive-thru even though you’re a couple of minutes behind schedule. When you drive around to the window you see there’s a car in front of you and unfortunately they have ordered things that take a bit longer to make like a frozen Dunkaccino and breakfast sandwich. Now you’re going to be late.
I have always thought of the Shore Conference Tournament as the highlight of the basketball season even though I was opposed to the change made several years ago to expand the field from 16 teams to all of those with a .500 or better record. I’ll admit to being “old school” and feeling the tournament should be a reward for having a good season and a .500 record is not something most teams celebrate.
I don’t need any extra motivation to pay a visit to The Office Restaurant & Lounge as I was there twice over the weekend but my guess is I will be stopping in at some point tomorrow as well to wish Phil Citta a happy 72nd birthday.
