pressofAtlanticCity.com - Monday, March 26, 2012

Costumed pets strutted their stuff, local artisans displayed their best work and two dozen brave souls took a brief dip in frigid waters Sunday, all in the name of raising money for the South Jersey Cancer Fund. The second annual Leprechaun Leap in Brigantine melded together many forms of fundraising into one at the suggestion of Brigantine residents who worked together to come up with the idea for a post-St. Patrick’s Day celebration, said Isabel Pullella, leading organizer and the wife of Brigantine Councilman Tony Pullella. Last year’s event raised $8,000.

South Jersey Non-Profit Marine Center Faces Uncertainty With Federal Grant Cuts Looming

CBS Philly (channel 3) - March 7, 2012

Employees at the non-profit marine mammal-stranding center in Brigantine bring back a 60-pound harbor porpoise that washed up on Long Beach Island Wednesday. As they try to determine what caused its death, four harbor seals picked up from other beaches recover inside the center’s bays. A proposal in President Obama’s budget to eliminate a federal grant program, which provides over $100,000 a year to this center and others like it nationwide, has the center’s director Bob Schoelkopf concerned about its ability to cover 1,800 miles of coastline each year.

There is a shift in population happening in New Jersey shore communities. The 2010 U.S. Census figures show the towns closest to the shore and beach are seeing dramatic decreases in population. The borough of Avalon lost nearly 38 percent of its year-round population over 10 years while Seaside Park, Lavallette, Mantoloking and Deal each lost about 30 percent of their residents. Southern locales like Sea Isle City, Brigantine and Ocean City each had about a 25 percent reduction. NJ.com users are discussing what population decreases means and why it may be happening.

6 abc Action News - Wednesday, 05/26/2010

BRIGANTINE, N.J. - May 26, 2010 (WPVI) -- The State Department of Environmental Protects and Rutgers University are taking no chances when comes the oil spill and New Jersey beaches.  

With New Jersey sea shore towns preparing for the multibillion dollar summer season, scientists say the chance that tar balls will wash up in the next couple of months is very remote.

"Whatever is floating in the surface has to come ashore across about 400 miles of northeast Atlantic Ocean," Stewart Farrell, director of the Coastal Research Center at Richard Stockton College said. (Read more at 6 abc Action News)

State Police: Jet Ski Law Changes

Cape May County Herald - Wednesday, 05/19/2010

WEST TRENTON — Personal watercraft operators are reminded that New Jersey personal watercraft laws have recently changed.

According to New Jersey State Police, the law now states that a person is not permitted to operate a personal watercraft above minimum headway speed within 100 feet of buoys or signs that mark the boundaries of a swimming area, the shoreline, any person in the water, or residential dwelling units. Additionally, personal watercraft are not permitted to be operated in such a manner so as to make the vessel completely leave the water or otherwise become airborne within 100 feet of another vessel.

Jet Ski Law

Preexisting laws that remain unaffected by the recent changes require that personal watercraft be operated only between sunrise and sunset and during times of good visibility.

Personal watercraft are not permitted to be operated within the confines of the Point Pleasant Canal in Ocean County, or the Cape May Canal in Cape May County. Personal watercraft operators must be at least 16 years of age, and must have a boating safety certificate in their possession.
