Beachcomber

Next time we read about Kings Pharmacy it might be in Historical Views. A truck with CVS items was making a delivery to the Dayton Shopping Center this week. Staff, by the way, is supposed to remain intact.

If the Mets don’t make it to the World Series they’ll at least get to play in another part of the world. Next year the team opens up against the Chicago Cubs---in Japan.

A Belle Harbor resident won $25 million in the lotto. The question is who? Nobody’s come forward to admit they’re the winner. But if there‘s a new Rolls Royce or Humvee in the neighborhood….

A new Green Line bus has been spotted. How do we know it was new? It was not spewing black smoke.

We know it’s true. We just know it. There are more spiders weaving webs these days than in any other rime in memory. Cobwebs are everywhere!

Things really are slow this time of year. We called the Community Board for some scuttlebutt and they said things are so quiet no one’s even complaining about the mosquitoes in Edgemere.

The Wave’s on-line edition is a big hit. We got an email from someone in Israel saying how much they enjoy reading The Wave thanks to cyberspace. Please have a look at www.rockawave.com.

The nudists have long left Riis Park but we hear there’s a clothing shortage on the Fort Tilden beaches.

We might not see Noach Dear making a run for Anthony Weiner’s seat in Congress, after all. He’ll be busy answering questions about campaign funds.

Gerard McCarthy of Breezy Point is the new "acting interim" principal at PS 114; Pat Tubridy will remain as assistant principal.

It’s a secret but if you know where Shore road is in Rockaway you can treat yourself to a beautifully scenic car or bike ride.

Beach Channel drive, no matter how many "chevrons" they place on the street, still resembles the Indy 500 at various times.

If you’re a politician or wannabe now’s the time to place ads in The Wave. With no elections in sight your ad will stand out!
