SEASIDE HEIGHTS — The Fourth of July fireworks show in Seaside Heights Saturday night was a washout, literally. A large wave ran so far up the shore, that it soaked all the fireworks set up on the beach, the borough said in a Facebook post. “The fireworks were set up closer to the surf than usual… Read the rest of this entry »Posted: July 5th, 2015 | Author: admin | Filed under: New Jersey | Tags: 4th of July, Fireworks, Fireworks washout, Forth of July, Seaside Heights | Comments Off on Seaside Heights fireworks display washed out by wave

A group of former mayors and a former congressman who led their Mississippi communities to recovery from Hurricane Katrina are coming to the Jersey Shore next week to share their knowledge and experience with New Jersey’s mayors and senior municipal officials who are continuing to deal with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
The group will be speaking at a meeting of the Bayshore Conference of Mayors on Friday evening May 17, 7PM, at Anthony’s Restaurant, 65 Church St in Keansburg. All mayors and senior municipal officials of towns impacted by Sandy are invited, according to Union Beach Mayor Paul Smith, the conference president. Those wishing to attend should contact Smith via text or phone call at 732-713-0506. If someone who should have gotten an invitation didn’t, this is it. Readers are encouraged to pass this post on to their mayors.
The Mississippi delegation, comprised of former Congressman Gene Taylor and former mayors Brent Warr, Eddie Farve, and Tommy Longo, is being flown to New Jersey free on charge by Southwest Airlines. Their lodging is being donated by Dominique Ervin, General Manager, Hampton Inn of Neptune/Wall and Sal Cannizarro of Immediate Care Medical Walk In of Hazlet.
This mayors helping mayors project is the brainchild of author and former CNN correspondent Kathleen Koch. A Bay St’ Louis, MS native, Koch has dedicated herself to supporting survivors of natural disasters since Katrina. She is the author of Rising from Katrina: How My Mississippi Hometown Lost It All and Found What Mattered and is donating a signed copy as a door prize for the conference. She was sent to Japan by the U.S. State Department in March of this year to deliver her message of Resiliency and Words of Hope to the survivors of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami of the second anniversary of that catastrophic event.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Dina Long, Hurricane Sandy, Kathleen Koch, Matt Doherty, Monmouth County, Serena DiMaso, Shaun Golden, Superstorm Sandy, Tom Arnone | Tags: Bayshore Conference of Mayors, Belmar, Congressman Gene Taylor, Dominique Ervin, Gulf Coast, Hampton Inn, Hurricane Katrina, Immediate Care Walk-in of Hazlet, Kathleen Koch, Mayor Brent Warr, Mayor Eddie Farve, Mayor Paul Smith, Mayor Tommy Longo, Mayors helping Mayors, Middletown, Neptune/Wall, Paul Smith, Sal Cannizzaro, Sea Bright, Seaside Heights, Union Beach | 4 Comments »
Governor Chris Christie had a SITUATION in Seaside Heights last night.
He exchanged harsh words with a heckler on the boardwalk and pursued his taunter who preferred to keep walking rather than engaging in a confrontation with the ice cream cone wielding executive.
Someone recorded the exchange and sent the video to TMZ.
The Governor’s office has yet to comment.Posted: July 6th, 2012 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2012 Presidential Politics, 2013 Gubernatorial Politics, Chris Christie, Jersey Shore | Tags: Chris Christie, Governor Chris Christie, Jersey Shore, Mitt Romney, Seaside Heights, Situation, TMZ, V.P.

Snooki won’t be cavorting along the Jersey shore of the Hudson River anytime soon.
The birthplace of the Chairman of the Board and baseball doesn’t have to worry about Snooki and JWoww filling the vacancy created by Jon Corzine’s departure, thanks to Mayor Dawn Zimmer telling MTV that a spinoff to the show that made Seaside Heights an international destination will not be filmed in her city, according to a report on NJ.com.Posted: January 31st, 2012 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Jersey Shore, Media, NJ Media | Tags: baseball, Chairman of the Board, Dawn Zimmer, Frank Sinatra, Hoboken, Hudson River, international destination, Jersey Shore, JWoww, NJ.com, Seaside Heights, Snooki | 2 Comments »

Governor Christie had such a good time in Belmar today that he’s going back to the beach tomorrow to promote New Jersey’s clean beaches and water.
Christie will be making a stop in Manasquan at 2PM with remarks to the press and then head to the Boardwalk and Dupont Ave. in Seaside Heights at 3:45PM.
Christie spokesperson Michael Drewniak hasn’t responded to my email asking if there are any plans to meet or avoid the cast of Jersey Shore during the Seaside Heights visit.
You never know what Snooki will do!
