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.....

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.

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?

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?

Now 18 months post sandy, many of these affected business owners are just throwing in the towel andRead More deciding NOT to rebuild and re-open their businesses and just walk away. Same thing going on in Seaside with many of the fire affected businesses on the burned boardwalk area. There just doesn't seem to be much light at the end of the Sandy tunnel. I feel sorry for them but they were grossly misled by the gov following the storm. False hopes, false promises, Chris Christie. You got what you voted for.

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.

WMS- The reason I am angry and mad is because you continually make unnecessary and insensitiveRead More comments about the current articles concerning the deaths of local people, without concern for their family members such as young siblings and mother and fathers, might read your nonsense. Does that make you feel good that a young child may be reading the nonsense that you might have posted about their family member. I may not feel for a person that causes their own demise, but I my heart breaks for the families, and to post many of the comments attributed to you on these articles is nothing short of disgusting and ignorant. Voicing your opinion on a topic is one thing and I am all for it, but if you plan on attacking people and trying to cause pain for people going through a difficult time, then you should at least be man enough to not hide behind your computer, or better yet, just shut the fuck up! Quite frankly I don't think you have posted (1) positive comment on this site in over 1740 comments. A little far off on the "addict" comment, don't dabble in drugs. Don't even drink, which I can see do plenty of, you might be in need of a little visit to that new place in TR. They might even have a special bed for slow people, just for you.
