OPINION POLL: Point Beach Downtown Christmas Lights

Since it's almost four months since Christmas is over and the Point Beach downtown lights are still draped across Arnold Ave., should the town:

A) Keep the lights up for Easter

B) Keep the lights up for 4th of July

C) Keep them up indefinitely so the tourists can ridicule the town

D) Petition the council to remove the lights ASAP.

Penn Cross, I disagree with you. Manasquan's, Spring Lake and Asbury all have a better downtown atmosphere than pt. pleasant. Pt. Pleasant is outdated like their hanging snow flakes that they couldn't afford to put up or take down. The million dollar bathroom being built is not in the downtown area where it is needed the most.

FIMF - good point about the baseball analogy. I shoulda said that when an infielder makes a great play and throws the ball away, it is a half play. The lights were put up and not taken down. Half a play or better yet, half assed job. As to the ACLU, yes they would come to town to compel compliance. The only problem is, our Rep. Dominated council decided to challenge the ACLU, lost and paid a 12K fine once before . Remember the "prayer" debacle? I'm sure they would do it again. As to Spooner, it's a she?? Have a Mr. Happy Easter!!

ED, I didn't say PP Beach has the nicest downtown, I said it has one of the better downtowns. I agree, Manasquan, Spring Lake and Asbury Park all have nice downtown area's too. I agree, it's time to take down the Christmas lights.
