The Morning Report: Indictment, Electricity Update And Open Space Poll Results
Good morning, Barnegat and Manahawkin! Today is Thursday, June 21.
Happy summer, everyone.
I am just back from New York City, where I have gone for corporate Patch training — and let me tell you, I had a blast and learned a lot about how to make the site work for you. I can't wait to implement all the new knowledge I have acquired.
Here in the area, you — and I, too — sometimes forget how much bigger this thing is -- this grand exciting venture we're all a part of.
But as I'm back, let's get back to local business.
We are starting this morning off with some indictments news — a Barnegat resident and several Toms River residents were indicted for shoplifting at Manahawkin stores.
Then, it will time for me to take a look at that open space poll we've had running for eight days now. I tried my best to be even-handed in my approach when I asked you: is recreation or open space a more important priority to you? I will post an update on what you said shortly.
Finally, our contributor Steve Moran is going to follow up yesterday's coverage on outages in Manahawkin later on today. We want to make sure everything is back to normal, and let you know if it isn't.
The crazy heat will continue today, with temperatures expected in the low 90s, lots of sunshine, no rain. A trip to the beach, anyone?
Have a great day everyone. It's good to be back!
