THINK PINK…Survivors and friends recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month…

October 21, 2007

THINK PINK: From left to right: Diane Stabley, Maureen Berman, Linda Brasier, Kathy DeVito, Ruth Drake, and Tracy Lizardi of the Seaside Heights Borough Hall recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Day.

Anita Alliston also wore pink to recognize Naitonal Breast Cancer Awareness Day, October 17th.

Breast Cancer is the most common type of cancer in women, and the third most common cause of cancer death. According to National Statistics, the average woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing Breast Cancer in their lifetime. Breast Cancer is one of the oldest known diseases in the world, and many women have died far too young from it throughout recorded history. However, modern Breast Cancer research continues to produce new treatments, and more women then ever are surviving the dreaded illness. At the Seaside Heights Borough Hall, two women are survivors of Breast Cancer: Ann Stabile and Linda Brasier. On Wednesday October 17th, all of their co-workers wore pink or at least wore a pink symbol to recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the 6th Annual, “wear it pink” day. Additionally, many of the office workers will also be participating in an October 21st walk in Point Pleasant Beach called, “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.” Each walker will find sponsors who will donate money that will go towards more research. Ann and Linda are among many, many survivors of Breast Cancer throughout the world. Because the 1 in 8 odds are so great, many notable women have been treated for and are survivors of the illness. The list of notable survivors include: Former U.S. First Lady Nancy Reagan, Former New Jersey First Lady Mary-Jo Codey, Singer Sheryl Crow, Soprano’s star Edie Falco, Golden Girl Rue McClanahan, Grease star Olivia Newton John, and British pop-star Kylie Minogue. Pink became the adopted symbol of Breast Cancer awareness in 1993, when the pink ribbon was introduced by Breast Cancer survivor Evelyn Lauder of Estee Lauder. Today, the color is immediately recognizable as the symbol for awareness. Even the Empire State Building’s lights have occasionally gone pink to promote awareness of this disease.

Seaside Heights Fourth Graders love Mayor Ken Hershey…

October 21, 2007

Mayor Hershey was extremely touched by this poster made by the fourth grade students of Mrs. Marsha Dionisio at the Hugh J. Boyd Jr. Elementary School in Seaside Heights.

A few weeks ago, we reported that Seaside Heights first graders met Mayor Ken Hershey as part of a unit on local government. Additionally, fourth graders also recently visited the Mayor at the Borough Hall as part of their curriculum of New Jersey government and history. Teacher Marsha Dionisio remarked that the Mayor was extremely kind and patient with the children, who asked him a list of prepared questions. As he did with the first group, the Mayor handed each child a large Hershey bar, his signature calling card. Upon return to the school, the children prepared a special poster for the Mayor that read, “We Love Our Mayor Hershey.”

Recently, the Office staff from the Borough Hall in Seaside Heights were treated to a free lunch from radio station 105.7 The Hawk. The prize was won by Kathy DeVito, who entered the contest on the internet. A catered lunch from Wallach’s in Toms River was delivered to the Borough Hall. Many of the office workers are loyal 105.7 listeners, especially Kathy. So she was very pleased to have won the lunch and to have the opportunity to speak live on air as the contest winner.

THEN….136 Lincoln was heavily damaged by fire in 2005.

In the summer of 2005, the house located at 136 Lincoln Avenue in Seaside Heights was heavily damaged by a structure fire. Last year, permits were taken out to repair the property. Now, the building is totally remodeled, and has been converted into condominium units. The units are now being shown to potential buyers. The once 1940’s-era house is now updated completely to modern standards.
