I am so glad that the park will be restored. I was down there today. I can't see why more of theRead More park isn't open now. Just an observation.

The Board of Chosen Luftwaffe will be there any day now with a third (reich) and borrowed round ofRead More funding.

From the bottom up our community could really accomplish many things. Sadly it's our town leadershipRead More that is failing us by not listening. "The advice that was given: "Get together with your community, meet and meet and meet, figure things out and get the support of your community so you can lean on each other and you’re not on your own," said Rowe." If only our leadership would listen to what people had to say and then act accordingly. What we see here though is "money wasted on bureaucracy" at the top level as well as the local, with residents sandwiched in between. People, we can't expect our leadership to fight every battle. In fact we shouldn't expect them to fight any battles for us because their agenda is different than ours. Self serving vs. community driven and we know which is which. What does it say about a community and it's leadership when the town administrator over steps and over speaks his boundary? We all wished that we could have learned a tremendous amount from Katrina and I guess to some degree we did. That is we still can't trust any form or our local or state government to help victims unless their is political gain for them, it's that simple. As Chris Christie departs onto the white house, he'll forget about the few promises he's made to us victims. Heck I am sure he has already forgotten them because to date we still are waiting on funding that has been promised. If we think 19 months is long, consider 9 years. The best quote in this article, "I heard from many people that the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and you have to keep hammering." This is exactly what we all need to keep doing, and well beyond after we get into our homes. Don't give up...don't ever give up.....

if it is GOP in Ocean County, then it is a Gilmore kneepad - Gilmore kneepads are so well greasedRead More that they can only purr and roll over

Time to clean house...last time the voters cleaned house they left spodofora in office and likeRead More untreated sandy mold you see what kind of leadership and spending has grown back in Town hall...Cant leave any behind this time ....

I love political math, it never adds up. 2700 x $30,000 = $81M and they have $100M to spend for theRead More program what'll happen to the remaining $19M. Also only 32 out of 2700 have been given the funds 19 months after the storm, they should be ashamed of themselves. Failed state government failed local...No Worries though, we'll have 2 nice new community centers to look at...

Hey Chief, sorry to tell you Rand Paul probably won't run, despite all the bluster. The state ofRead More Kentucky bars running for 2 offices at the same time. He is up for re-election to Senate in 2016. He's not gonna give that up, only to lose a presidential election. He petitioned state government to change the law. They declined. Some states have the law, it's known as the LBJ law, because he ran for Senate and V.P. in 1960.

I live across from the wetlands at the end of the Metedeconk and watched 8 barge loads of debrisRead More removed. The guys had to haul most, if not all, out by hand. I couldn't believe how much was hauled out. We watched and figured the first two barges were all they would find, but they just kept coming back and going in deeper. Incredible job and extremely well done.

Kathleen, the commentator states that there is "still an issue with flood insurance beingRead More subsidized". John, no one says this is an $150,000 house. I heard them bring quite a bit of attention to the fact that most of us are still waiting in that story. Did we all watch the same video?
Mattie April 24, 2014 at 09:56 am
Just got word this week that my sister's Silverton home won't even be demolished until some time inRead More JULY!! WTH? She's been completely qualified, approved and allotted the grant money (to add to her insurance and flood insurance pay-outs) since the end of OCTOBER!! Now they're claiming the house will "probably be done" by the end of September... Does anyone realize that will take it to 23 months after the storm?? Yeah, Christie's doing a FINE job of restoring the shore, isn't he?

If only the Ocean County GOP would go the way of Good Luck Point. With the foresight andRead More preparations made by them prior to Hurricane Sandy, Good Luck Point never stood a chance. Perhaps that is why they hid from the public prior to, throughout and until the first Freeholder meeting after the elections. I'm sure trying to hide the fact the Ocean County Emergency Management team had no leadership throughout the Hurricane Sandy fiasco had nothing to do with their closet act.

was in toms river today. it has been a few months. came down to check on dads old beach house on aRead More lagoon off of fischer. wound up spending the day in town. I honestly felt like the crying indian from the 70,s. the place is going under very quickly. Drugs, crime, insane traffic, 70mph on fischer blvd?? garbage all over the place. it does not resemble toms river of even 1985. so sad I loved this town.

See the "Sandy victims UNITE!" item over there on the right =========> for detailsRead More about how you can tell off the state about its bungled recovery programs, either in person at the next public hearings or online in writing. This man-made disaster has been worse than Katrina!
Mike Mazzucca February 12, 2014 at 08:32 am
I had planned on going to this meeting, I know there are two more this week. I spent my 3 hours inRead More Lakewood fighting for $10k as if I were a prisoner being interrogated over and over with the same questions as if they wanted to catch me in a lie. They are just looking for ways to make it harder for you. The woman beside me had already been there 3 times and yesterday was the fourth because they continue to change the requirements. The push next should be to attack the insurance carriers. The politicians don't want to hear they are at fault, so they'll need a scapegoat, the flood carriers should be that goat...We've got to continue to push forward.
Mac February 11, 2014 at 12:49 pm
@mr henry - only the Seaside Heights fire company knows for sure since they stored the records underRead More the Seaside Park boardwalk - perhaps all these 'most popular stories' repetitiously headlined here are all individual confessions by our Jersey Shore’s most notorious community-minded first responder recovery crews – addicts of recurring public trust crimes fits the Seasides to a ‘T’ – no wonder Christie sold out his federal prosecutor’s post and joined the gang – itssoeasyinnj – even Gilmore’s playpal hero Norcross is getting in on the game – Norcross has recalled Andrews from Washington to run for NJ Governor and give the western side of the 3rd District a Gilmore spit-shine his brother doesn’t have what it takes to do himself – Camden and the Seasides: Perfect Together

I guess the federal prosecutor subpoenaed the confessions. WTG. Things are looking up for the baconRead More factory hostages.
Mike Mazzucca February 11, 2014 at 01:59 pm
So let's put it all in perspective. Since the 1960's the NFIP has been collecting premiums. ForgetRead More about what they paid out, let's look at premium dollars. In all these years of dealing with floods and policies etc etc. they are still this screwed up? What does that tell you? They really should stop printing stuff like this....because it just gets too comical.
