A largely abandoned building that once housed the local library is coming back to life as a community center. "We've had a number of meetings with the community regarding use of the former library," said Niki Tennant, spokeswoman for Councilwoman Ruth Galanter, who helped initiate the conversion with a $75,000 city grant. As a result of the meetings, the Vera Davis McClendon Center, scheduled to open in September, will include computer courses as well as classes in construction and tile design.

And in case anyone doubted that the oceanfront strip was fully back in business, another boardwalk regular, Tony the Fireman, also performed at the ceremony. Tony breathed, ate and rubbed fire onto his body.
