News from Around the South Jersey Shore

Where do I even start? Let's deal with the casinos first:

So Donald Trump quit the board of the company that runs the casinos with his name -- and then they all go bankrupt. Cut and run? I think so. I'm not shocked about this. We knew it was coming, but it still hurts to see it.

It's official: Resorts is facing foreclosure.

The Tropicana's former owners -- who were so bad at running the casino that the state essentially kicked them out -- wants a second chance.

I don't see that happening -- especially since billionare Carl Icahn, who had owned the Sands, has shown interest.

And Trump's getting sued for a tax settlement, too.

And then the tragic news that Tracy Elizabeth Hottenstein of Conshohocken died in Sea Isle last weekend. She was in town for the Polar Plunge. Nothing yet whether she died while plunging, though early reports said she was in town to watch, not swim. Horrible news.

Ocean City's considering boardwalk cameras.

The owner of JP Prime in Wildwood is facing contempt charges for continue to operate the restaurant after it was ordered closed -- twice.

This gas station always gave me the heebie jeebies, even before the recent robbery.

This is cool: Rock Band Nights in Atlantic City!

Here's a nice piece about Cape May Stage.

It's duck stamp time!

More about snow owls in Stone Harbor.

Thank you for mentioning Tracy Elizabeth Hottenstein. I went to high school with her and had her dad as my gym teacher. I really enjoy your blog. I get a glimpse of what life would be like down the Jersey shore.
