Bradley Beach Food Pantry Founder Turning 100 — By JOSEPH SAPIA If you can spare a hundred, the Bradley Food Pantry is ready to take it off your hands. The 100, in honor of founder Eleanor Pierson turning 100-years-old Friday, Sept. 19, can be in various forms, such as $100, 100 dimes, 100 cans of food, 100 minutes or hours of volunteerism and so on.

Summer at the Shore: Ready, Set, Go — On Tuesday, Joanne Letson was planting canna flowers and palms at the "Bradley Beach sign" on the oceanfront. Earlier, she had planted marigolds and begonias in the area. Soon, the B-R-A-D-L-E-Y B-E-A-C-H lettering sitting in the flower bed would be getting a coat of white paint.

Noel Kirchner was in his office at a children's wear manufacturer in New York's Fashion District when a co-worker got a telephone call. "She broke into tears, I remember that," Kirchner said.

Dredging Begins in Sylvan Lake — Working with a federal grant of more than $300,000, Avon and Bradley Beach officials have been dredging Sylvan Lake, along with removing debris from it. An estimated 10,000 cubic yards of spoils would be removed, opening water drainage to east end outflow gates that are clogged, along with adding lake depth to retain more water, said Steve Kegelman, Avon's deputy emergency management coordinator.
