Rusty Bikes
Got a bike that’s suffering from rust because of the tough Absecon Island climate? We spoke to the owner of AAAA Bike Shop in Ventnor, Mike Wiesen, about how to protect your bike from rust or clean up an already-rusty one. Also – read Nanette LoBiondo of Downbeach Pilot on AAAA Bike Shop’s 40th anniversary.

Offshore Wind
State plans for offshore wind development in New Jersey look good, but at a public hearing yesterday officials urged the administration to “hurry up”, NJ Spotlight reported. Separately, offshore wind co Orsted recently opened its new Atlantic City headquarters.

NJ Gun Crime
Most of the guns used to commit crimes in New Jersey come from out of state, according to a new report. NJ Spotlight says Gov. Phil Murphy is trying to shine a spotlight on gun crime in New Jersey. Looking at the data locally, Atlantic County is middle-of-the-road for gun recoveries. I’d love to see these numbers reported on a per-100,000 inhabitants basis though. You can find the links to the original reports by the NJ State Police here.

Elsewhere, Margate firefighter Dave Funk lost his appeals to overturn his 2016 shoplifting conviction and the ruling that cost him his job, actor Mark Wahlberg was in AC for dinner with the owners of the casino formerly known as Revel (as an aside, get over to the restaurant they visited – Girasole, in the Ocean Club – when you can. Food is great and they have an amazing two-course $15 lunch prix fixe menu) and finally we are inching closer to an economic incentive zone around the Atlantic City airport.
