Community leaders including Downtown Merchants Association co-President Skip Tolomeo, Ocean City Business Administrator Mike Dattilo, Councilman Keith Hartzell, Mayor Jay Gillian, Chatterbox owners Bob and Marie Boyer and Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michele Gillian help cut the ribbon to mark the reopening of the Chatterbox Restaurant at Ninth Street and Central Avenue in Ocean City.While crowds have already found the Chatterbox Restaurant in the past few weeks, the new owners and Chamber of Commerce officials marked the occasion of the iconic restaurant’s reopening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday.A line marks the level of floodwaters inside the Chatterbox Restaurant in Ocean City (NJ) during Superstorm Sandy.The building — with its Spanish Mission Revival style and its pink exterior — has been a landmark at Ninth Street and Central Avenue since the restaurant was first established by Jean Campbell in 1937. The Repici family had owned the Chatterbox since 1972 but sold the business to Bob and Marie Boyer earlier this year.The Boyers have renovated the restaurant, which saw extensive flooding during Superstorm Sandy, and they’ve brought in a new chef, Art VanDerPool, to create a new menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He added a creative flair to the traditional diner menu with signature dishes like the “Box Burger” — a burger stuffed with pulled pork, smothered in barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese, and topped with onion rings.They new owners also have brought in an extensive ice-cream menu. The Boyers owned and operated Tory’s Ice Cream Shop at 3308 Asbury Avenue until they sold it in 2005. The shop has since been torn down.The Chatterbox is open six days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner (it will be closed only on Wednesdays for the next two weeks before opening every day).For more information, call 609-399-0113 or visit chatterboxrestaurant.com.The renovated Chatterbox is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Ocean City’s Brynn Gallagher, NSSA Explorer Women’s winner, is held up by her sister, Mia, (green wetsuit) and other friends. (Photo courtesy of NSSA) By MADDY VITALEOcean City sisters Mia and Brynn Gallagher had a memorable time with the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) at the East Coast Championships in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., earlier this month.The sisters took home trophies and also some experiences they will never forget, they said in an interview on Sunday.New Smyrna is known among surfers for its consistent waves. But it is also known as “the shark bite capital of the world.”The April 8-11 surfing competition was extended a day due to some shark encounters as well as some intense weather, according to a NSSA news release.Mia Gallagher, 15, the defending 2020 East Coast titleholder, missed the 2021 win by a narrow margin, finishing second in the Open Women’s final.But she also made the finals in Explorer Women’s with a fourth place finish.Brynn Gallagher, 13, finished with an extremely close second place in both Open Girls and then again in Open Super Girls and took first place in Explorer Women’s, according to the release.NSSA Executive Director Janice Aragon has watched Brynn develop over the last year.“There was just no way that Brynn Gallagher was leaving that beach without a title,” she said.The Gallagher sisters were not the only South Jersey surfers to make the podium.Callie Duff, of Margate, finished fourth overall in Explorer Longboard and Stephen Zakroff, of Ocean City, placed third in Explorer Men’s. Cooper Jewell, also from Ocean City, surfed in both the Explorer and Open Boys divisions and he made the semi-final in Open Boys.Mia Gallagher rides a wave in New Smyrna Beach, Fla. (Photo courtesy of venspiration)For Mia, the weather left the most lasting impression of the contest.The surfer, who took up the sport at just 10, said, “The weather was definitely very crazy some of the days. But it wasn’t the craziest waves I have surfed. It was the weather with all of the lightning and the sharks that I will remember.”Mia described the darkness.“When we were coming down the beach, there were the darkest clouds I’ve ever seen,” she pointed out. “It was crazy. My sister’s heat was the last of the day. People started leaving.”Like Mia, Brynn didn’t let the weather stop her competitive nature or her enjoyment of surfing.She put together some solid surfing to make finals in three different divisions and had a close second in both Open Girls and then again in Open Super Girls.But finishing second seemed to give the start surfer more drive to win.Brynn won the Explorer Women’s final.Within two minutes of the start of the heat, Gallagher dropped a 9-point ride which set the pace for an aggressively surfed heat and her ultimate win, the news release stated.“The heat before my third final, I lost and I came in second. When my heat was coming up, I was so pumped up,” said Brynn, whose father, Chad Gallagher, is also a surfer. “I wanted to win so badly. My sister was in my heat and I said, ‘This is awesome.’”Lightning strikes extended the competition a day. (Photo provided by NSSA)Brynn’s advice to beginner surfers is to keep doing what you love and you will improve.“The main thing is to just have fun,” she said. “I just love it and love being out in the water. It is super fun to go out in the ocean with friends and my dad and sister.”Randy Townsend, the NSSA Northeast Conference director, traveled from his home in Long Beach Island to New Smyrna Beach like he does every year to watch his Northeast kids compete on the main stage.This year, though, Townsend said he was particularly excited to see the local surfers compete, commenting, “The level of surfing among the young girls that are coming up is getting really exciting to watch.”And the girls from South Jersey certainly delivered.In addition to Mia and Brynn Gallagher, Callie Duff, from Margate, surfed her way through many heats to make “Finals Day” on April 12.Mia and Brynn’s mom, Kristen Gallagher, said that there is more to the competitions than the titles.“It’s so great for the kids to make friends all over,” she said. “Win or lose, they can look back at their childhoods. They probably won’t remember where they placed, but they will remember all of those great life experiences.”Brynn Gallagher holds up her trophy in victory.
Maple Leaf subsidiary Canada Bread has announced that its new C$100 million mega-bakery will be in Hamilton, Canada.Speculation has been rife over where the plant might go since the announcement last month that Canada Bread was looking for a site outside Toronto to replace three smaller bakeries, which it described as ageing and unable to expand.The company said the 375,000 square foot bakery will be built on a 10-hectare site, creating 300 jobs. Construction will start in June and the first production lines are due to be commissioned 12 months later. The Toronto bakeries will close by the end of 2013.Canada Bread already employs approximately 340 people at its Fresh Bakery and Olivieri pasta facilities in Hamilton.“We are very pleased to be growing our presence in Hamilton through this investment to establish a world-class bakery facility,” said Canada Bread president Richard Lan.Canada Bread Company is 89.8% owned by Maple Leaf Foods which operates across North America and in the United Kingdom.
Sunderland-based Baked Cupcakery has had a welcome boost to business, with an order for 2,000 cupcakes from Virgin Money.The home-based business, which opened in October last year, supplied cupcakes to celebrate Virgin’s official launch into high-street banking last week, after the firm came across Cupcakery’s website and got in touch.Owner Helena Reed said it had been a conscious decision to target the corporate world, as she felt she would be more likely to achieve larger bulk orders. She is also looking to supply wedding cupcakes.“It’s great to be able to talk about this news on my website,” said Reed, who hopes it will help more orders to follow.Although Reed predominantly runs the business from home, for larger orders she has access to a local bakery, situated in the back of a butcher’s shop, after a chance meeting with the owner at a Christmas fair. “It’s a new business, so I don’t want to stretch myself too thin, but I would look to take on staff when more orders come in,” she added.

Robert Plant is a musician who needs no introduction. As the iconic Led Zeppelin singer gears up for the release of his eleventh LP, Carry Fire, Plant has released a brand new single to preview what’s in store for fans looking forward to the eleven-track album’s release on October 13th via Nonesuch/Warner Bros—a follow-up to 2014’s Lullaby and… the Ceaseless Roar. For this new single, “Bones Of Saints”, and the rest of the tracks on Carry Fire, Plant teams with The Sensational Space Shifters, a group composed of Justin Adams, John Baggott, Dave Smith and Liam “Skin” Tyson, though other numbers on the record include cameos from cellist Redi Hasa, violist/violinist Seth Lakeman, and vocalist Chrissie Hynde.As Plant noted to Rolling Stone about the creative direction of Carry Fire, “It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new. . . . Consequently the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation.”You can get a sneak peak at Carry Fire by taking a listen to Robert Plant’s newly released single, “Bones Of Saints” below. Plus, stay tuned for upcoming announcements about tour dates in support of the legendary singer’s eleventh full-length album.
The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news. Latonya Wright ’00, who’s played the cymbals with the Harvard University Band at 22 consecutive Harvard Commencements, can easily jot off her favorite moments over the years.There was J.K. Rowling’s speech in 2008; Joe Biden’s speech in 2017; and in 1997, the first Commencement she ever attended, musical legend Quincy Jones briefly conducted the Band, the reason Wright has been returning all these years. “When he came over, there was a big flurry of people finding pens,” Wright said.Yet despite all the pomp, pageantry, and tradition of Harvard’s annual Commencement, Wright’s favorite moments are about the people attending and the joy they express throughout the day — hugs between classmates, smiles as they take selfies, dancing as the band plays, and families proudly witnessing their special students receiving diplomas.“It’s exciting to play for the celebrities, but it’s becoming more rewarding to play for the students, families, and alumni who come over and film us during the ceremonies,” Wright said. “That usually means that the Band sounds good and the drumline has a satisfying groove happening. The Band is certainly having fun, and I love seeing that others are having fun with us by celebrating and dancing along.”It never gets old, Wright said, so she hopes to see it all again this year.“I haven’t missed one since ,” she said. “I suppose at first it was the excitement of a number of different things: getting to spend more time with my friends and [being] in Cambridge, getting to perform for so many people, getting to see and hear all the celebrities and dignitaries receiving honorary degrees. … All those things are still important to me, but now they’ve grown deeper.”“For me, it’s really moving to have the entire University family together to observe everyone’s special day,” Wright said. “It is Harvard at its most Harvard.”At her 23rd Commencement, Wright continues to do what she’s done since her very first: crashing cymbals.,“They’re the big bright shiny plates,” Wright said of the thin disk-like percussion instrument, which are often used in pairs to produce a reverberant crash. “They add a little special dash [to the drumline]. They add a little spice.”The loud crashes, which Wright calls “flourishes,” are hard to miss and a lot of fun to make. Often, they’re in the music sheet, she said, but a lot of the times it comes down to creativity and having a good ear. For instance, during “Ten Thousand Men of Harvard,” the University’s fight song, if she hears the drummers doing something special she might add in a crash to complement.“I usually try to time the flips, clicks, and crashes in places where the drumline is doing something equally visual or interesting [or] if there is a definite pause in the music the Band is playing, where a crash can fill the space,” Wright said. She will also add in flourishes when the corresponding words call for action, like the “Fight! Fight! Fight!” featured in the lyrics of many Harvard songs.Wright had no experience with cymbals when handed her first pair at a Harvard hockey game her freshman year. She’s thankful for that moment, because it led to deep bonds with the University through membership in the Band.“The current Band members are not really from my era, but I love the warm welcome I receive from them each year and I love keeping up with their lives and hearing how their Cambridge differs from mine,” Wright said.Each year, Wright travels to Commencement from North Carolina, where she lives and works.“It’s a recurring thing,” she said. “It’s like a reunion. We literally get the Band back together.”Wright plans to keep that going as long as she can.“I usually think I’m going to do it just one more year, but I expect I’ll be showing up to perform at my 75th [reunion] in 2075,” she joked. “In returning to play for so long, I’ve become a Harvard Commencement tradition in my own small way.”
