Cool People for Week of 5/18-5/24…

May 18, 2008


REPORTED TO BE DOING WELL AFTER A 12-PLUS HOUR DOUBLE LUNG TRANSPLANT SURGERY SATURDAY MAY 17TH
, please keep Seaside Heights Police Captain Dave Szalkowski in your prayers  as he now faces a difficult recovery period.


BEAUTIFUL MOMS CELEBRATING MOTHER’S DAY are the focus of the remaining COOL PEOPLE for this week, led by Ms. Kimberley Beckwith, seen with daughter Sierra.


Kim, Sierra and friend Chad have made several recent Seaside Heights appearances, having all recently transplanted back to Ocean County after many years in Florida.

Sarah Cole.


Elayne Whalen with husband Steve.


Cara Cangelosi, with John Saddy.

#1 SPORTS FAN MOM Joann Duszczak.


Iryna Cimorelli and husband Wayne.

MOMS-TO-BE make our list, like Phyllis Camera, who is the most anticipated new mom in Seaside Heights, but not the most famous. That honor goes to…


“STARR MANNING”
, played by Kristen Alderson on One Life To Live. Starr’s teen pregnancy/runaway storyline, filmed almost entirely in Seaside Heights, is the hottest storyline on daytime television, and has brought Kristen and colleague actor Brandon Buddy (Cole) to new heights of their fame.


EATING FOR TWO, at least on the show, Kristen Alderson is a big fan of Fried Oreos from Seaside Heights. Kristen and Brandon Buddy recently appeared on The View, and Kristen is blogging online about her teen pregnancy storyline experience.


Kristen Alderson, shown here on a break from filming One Life To Live in Seaside Heights last month, has recently been honored along with ABC Daytime at the Candie’s Foundation’s Event to Prevent, focused at preventing teen pregnancy. Kristen recently said, “ABC and OLTL are not preaching to our viewers. We are putting our story out there so teens can learn from Starr and Cole’s decisions and hopefully never have to be in a situation like theirs.” CLICK HERE TO GO TO KRISTEN’S BLOG

“Lucky Leo” Whalen honored by New Jersey Amusement Association…

May 18, 2008


“Lucky Leo” Whalen was honored as the New Jersey Amusement Association’s Man of the Year on May 12, 2008.


The entire Whalen family, and the New Jersey Amusement Association family honored “Lucky Leo” Whalen, gaming industry legend since 1953


ONE OF HIS LAST AND MOST LONG-LASTING ACCOMPLISHMENTS Leo thanked part of his success to the late Seaside Heights Mayor J. Stanley Tunney, who was his first landlord, and a strong advocate and lobbyist for the creation of Legalized Games of Chance in New Jersey, Circa 1960.

“Lucky Leo” Whalen honored by New Jersey Amusement Association: Mr. “Lucky Leo” Whalen of Toms River and Florida, was recently given the highest honor possible by the New Jersey Amusement Association, its prestigious Person of the Year. Leo started in 1955 with just one stand. Working only summers at first, he had been a teacher when he began on the boardwalk, eventually leaving the field to game full time. (Mr. Whalen pointed out that Fritz Rolle, longtime active NJAA member, was once his 7th grade pupil.) Leo was introduced at the podium by son Steve, who currently operates the landmark Lucky Leo’s arcade and expansive gaming frontage at Hamilton Avenue and The Boardwalk in Seaside Heights with brother Tommy. In his acceptance speech, Leo first thanked his wife of 58 years, Barbara. Leo said that when he first opened, games of chance were not sanctioned and were illegal by the state, but the Borough issued a license for $100.00 anyway. In 1960, a bill was introduced in the New Jersey Legislature, creating the Legalized Games of Chance, a state sanctioned gaming permit. According to Leo’s story, the bill was passed by the efforts of all the concessionaires, but especially, the late Seaside Heights Mayor J. Stanley Tunney. Front that point forward, the license was $100 for the State, and $100 for the Borough. Upon finishing his speech, Leo was granted a standing ovation from the NJAA membership, which is a cross section of the industry statewide.

See rare Jersey Shore May Nor’Easter…

May 18, 2008


THIS CRAZY RADAR
shows the approach of the rare May Nor’Easter that pounded the Jersey Shore on May 12, 2008.


LARGE SWELLS AND SAND DRIFTS were evident along the beach.


Some have compared this storm to the March 1984 Nor’Easter of local legend.


NEAR HURRICANE FORCE GUSTS
leveled awnings and signs all over Seaside Heights.


According to Tony Modero, our loyal reader from the National Weather Service, the highest officially recorded gust was 60 miles per hour at the Webster Avenue Lifeguard Building at 10 a.m
