Debate Moot

Letters

To the Editor: The debate surrounding wind farms off shore from Long Beach Island is amusing at best. In the history of the country there is not a worse case of NIMBY. Those fighting the offshore wind farms have the most to gain from them if they are built, and the most to lose if the farms are not built. […]

Seeing the Light

Letters

To the Editor: Thank you, Ship Bottom, for covering traffic lights on the Boulevard entirely instead of having them blink yellow. Now drivers have a fighting chance of seeing if the light at 28th Street is red or green. It would be nice if Long Beach Township would do something similar and then turn on just a few key lights to […]

Challenges Remain

Letters

To the Editor: The 2022 General Election here in Surf City is in the books. We thank the more than 300 voters who gave their votes and their trust to each of us. We did not win this time and the incumbents will return to their seats for yet another term. We wish them well and, in turn, hope for […]

LBI Bliss Is Marred by Planned Wind Project

Ampersand

To the Editor: I remember when I was younger the Jersey Shore beaches would often have to close due to medical waste washing ashore. The water had a brownish green color. You could barely see your feet. Fast forward to today and what a marvelous transition! You hardly hear of such occurrences, and the water is the greenish hue of […]

No Need for Panic

Letters

To the Editor: The results of climate change panic hurt the poor, cost trillions, and fail to fix the planet. Climate change is a problem, but it is not the end of the world. To put it in perspective, if the U.S. went to net zero today (i.e. reduce carbon emissions to zero), and was at net zero for every year […]

Voting Snafu

Letters

To the Editor:
 After 22 years of voting at the same polling place in Beach Haven Terrace, I was unable to vote there. I was told to vote in Beach Haven due to an error on my sample ballot. Since I don’t live in Beach Haven, I was told I could vote on a provisional write-in ballot. I filled out […]

Congratulations to Kitty Snyder on her election; l look forward to working with her and the other council members. Thank you to my family and friends for their time and efforts over the past few months. I am truly humbled by the continuing support that […]

Farther Out Is Costlier

Letters

To the Editor: I am not sure how visible the wind turbines will be. Obviously they will be visible, but at 9 miles and being relatively thin structures I am just not sure of the impact. What I do know is that moving them farther out will increase the cost. The foundations must be taller due to greater ocean depth, […]
