Yes, nothing like traffic jams, impatient people, high gas prices, and speeding tickets-the official sign of Summer!!

and not to mention, somebody hitting the "stop traffic" button at the new bike intersection on 9th street. who came up with that brilliant idea?

The bike intersection…thats politicians saying look how great I am for saving you from yourself. Residual effects of the "I brake for Casey" campaign. A tragic accident that had nothing to do with a lack of crosswalk propaganda laws.

Think of each car representing a certain dollar figure which is contributing to our summer success, which pays our bills, feeds our families, pays our taxes and gives economic vitality to our region. With in mind, thank God for our many visitors.....now remember what it is like when a hurricane or some over environmental disaster comes to the area and everyone runs away during the summer.....not fun. Like it or not, we are a summer resort, blessed with many natural infrastructure attractions and everyone wants to be a part of that. Capt. Joel S. Fogel Chairman, Eco Tourism NJ Tourism Council www.actourism.org
