Baltimore Grill
Route 40’s Bill Sprouse brings you news on an Atlantic City icon, plus a nostalgic look at what the Baltimore Grill means to him. (For those who don’t know him, the answer is EVERYTHING, from the white plastic canisters to missing teeth, so you should just go ahead and read it.)

ReStore At The Shore
Habitat for Humanity’s new furniture store is now open in Egg Harbor Township. They are selling great furniture (some of has come from local hotel renovations and they have nearly-new stuff too) – and, if you’re a hoarder looking to offload some clutter, they will come and pick up your unwanted furniture. The Current has all the details.

The Press of Atlantic City has a brief story here about growing activist movements in South Jersey including four in Egg Harbor Township, Absecon, Atlantic City and Margate. The Current also has a more detailed piece about a recent presentation to the Atlantic County Federation of Republican Women, that discussed how women can make more inroads into the local political landscape, which seems increasingly relevant after this week’s NJ.Com piece showed Atlantic County has the fewest women representatives. As a side note, there is an inter-faith and social-justice vigil today at noon at Atlantic City hall.

AC Schools

Atlantic City’s school board and the Atlantic City Education Association have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract (the last contract expired at the end of June). If members approve the contract, the school board would likely put it to a vote at their meeting on Feb. 21, The Press of Atlantic City reports.
