southern ocean county: Little Egg Harbor's Osborn Island...HIT HARD - 11/01/12 01:45 AM

southern ocean county: New Jersey's North-South Divide Gets Serious! - 01/05/11 10:52 AM
As if there weren't enough reasons for New Jersey's great divide...the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles has just created another. Dating back to the 1600's north and south Jersey seemed separate. At that time it wasn't north and south Jersey, but east and west Jersey. Little Egg Harbor in southern Ocean County at the Jersey Shore was considered by most to the the eastern portion of west Jersey.  East Jersey was primarily the north Jersey coast, running inland a few hundred miles. In my lifetime, north and south Jersey were defined by area codes. Before cell phones New Jersey had just two … (7 comments)

southern ocean county: Getting Bit By Going Green at the Jersey Shore! - 05/16/09 12:14 AM
Going green could be a double edged sword for Jersey Shore utility customers. Atlantic Electric, the company that serves most of South Jersey and customers in southern Ocean County, wants to raise its rates 3.5%.
The reason it quite surprising!  Utility generation costs are too low!  Now, you say, wait shouldn't our rates being going down?  Well that would be the case anywhere else but here in New Jersey.  Back in the 1980's, in an effort to encourage independent energy production (that includes the excess generated by residential wind and solar power generation and sold back to the utility), New Jersey … (4 comments)

A Statue Stands in Tuckerton, NJ!

When I first moved back to southern Ocean County many years ago, the statute in the middle of Tuckerton was always a bit of a mystery to me.
It sits on a small island on Route 9, where the state highway and Great Bay Boulevard intersect, in between the Tuckerton Seaport and Lake Pohatcong.
The statue is a tribute to those who gave their lives in World War I, and was erected by the Improved Order of the Red Men.
Here’s a little background on this very old fraternal organization…
