LONG BEACH ISLAND residents fighting to stop Army Project!

Sound familiar? Resident's of Long Beach Island are fighting against another NJDEP /Army Corp of Engineers so called Shore Protection Project. As usual the Press article today made them seem like bad guys. Why is it when people organize to protect themselves from being screwed over by the Gov't the Press seems to have a fit? I would advise those individuals who are fighting the Project on Long Beach Island to come on down to Absecon Island if they want to see what's in store for them if they let the State (sic) protect them. While they're here though they should also come on down and visit us in Margate where sanity still prevails.

Unfortunately unlike Margate area, most of the houses on LBI are owned but not occupied by the owners, so they are happily in Morristown, Homdel etc... not having any coordinated voice against the powers to be. Don't expect much in the way of resistance.

True but it seems if they can stick together and avoid that Lawyer mentioned in todays press they just might win? Do u know if they have a leader or group fighting? Somebody had to organize that meeting they held yesterday. I'd love to come speak to them about our fight with the NJDEP down here.
