Beachcomber

 

 

 

As if there weren’t enough to worry about at St. John’s Hospital, we hear they’ve been without air conditioning for much of the recent heat wave.

We’ve heard of drive-in movies but this is ridiculous. A car smashed through the wall at Blockbuster Video on Monday.

Keyspan, doing its best to build good relations in the Rockaways, was the major sponsor of the recent rock ‘n roll concert at Fort Tilden hosted by RMAC.

Congratulations to the Mets. Even though they’ve made a nice run towards first place most fans were talking about their new ugly uniforms. The Mercury Mets? Sounds like an ad for a car.

Don’t forget to get out on Tuesday Night. One of the highlight nights of the year is the Night Out Against Crime. There’ll be entertainment in addition to the fireworks along the boardwalk after 6:30 p.m.

The Buildings Department ordered residents of 106-20 Shore Front to stay off the terraces. For now they’ve been deemed unsafe.

The New York Times ran a lengthy investigative piece about PS 43 and all the corruption surrounding the construction of the school on Beach 32 street. The Wave editorialized and drew attention to this boondoggle years ago.

The Park Nursing Home on the boardwalk at Beach 115 street looks absolutely beautiful after getting a facelift. Maybe others will follow suit?

State Senator Joe Bruno is holding up the confirmation of Sen. Al Waldon who was picked by Governor Pataki to become a judge. Apparently, Bruno’s a bit miffed that Pataki picked a democrat.

With the closing of the Neponsit Home why does the Green Bus (Q22) bother going to all the way to Beach 169? The company should combine its services with the Q35.

A group of 9-10 year olds have made Rockaway Little League proud. They copped the Queens Flag in District 27 play. President of Rockaway Little League, Marty Andresen, has been beaming ever since. The team takes on Manhattan on Saturday at Fort Tilden, 11 a.m.
