Civic Progress Party Candidates Announced
During its Jan. 31 caucus, the Civic Progress Party, until recently, the only political party in Sea Cliff, announced its candidates for mayor and two positions on the village board of trustees. Mayor Claudia Moyne will be seeking re-election as is trustee Eileen Kennedy. A newcomer to Sea Cliff's political scene is Paul Marchese, the Civic Progress party's other candidate for a seat on the board. The caucus was held in Sea Cliff's Village Hall and open to the public. It is hoped that the election process this spring, an exercise surprisingly similar to the situation in Florida during the Presidential election-complete with court dates-will go smoothly.

The Queen of the Sea's regained composure is the result of hard work by an incredibly optimistic, determined ship's captain, diver and carpenter who is besotted by wooden ships----that person is Gerhard Schwisow. Gerhard owns a marine construction company in Savannah, GA., and a barkentine of his own, the Barbra Negra. He was born in Hamburg, Germany and after numerous stops in different ports, he calls Savannah home-well, sort of.
