    U.S. Army veteran Jared Goering was kicked off the North Wildwood boardwalk Thursday night because he had his service dog by his side. A North Wildwood police officer issued Jared and his wife a summons because of the dog. Goering said, “I expected to get more respect from him because of the jobs that we both have to do." "He mockingly asked if all veterans get service dogs," said Jared’s wife, Sally Goering, “his dog is medically necessary and he is a service dog." Jared and his wife Sally say the incident occurred on the 26th street North Wildwood boardwalk....

    Nathan Louis Campbell is the crazed man who plowed through crowds of people, killing a bride on her honeymoon in Santa Monica. He subsequently turned himself into police. Why hasn't the media showed Campbell's mug shot? There are a few Nathan Campbells out there, but probably not many Nathan Louis Campbells.

    Hindsight will soon be punishable by a $25 fine in this Jersey Shore resort. Wildwood passed a law Wednesday night banning overly saggy pants on the boardwalk, prompted by numerous complaints from longtime visitors about having to see people’s rear ends hanging out in public. Subsequent violations of the law, which could take effect as early as July 2, could result in fines as high as $200, and 40 hours of community service. … Wildwood is a resort town near the southernmost tip of New Jersey. It is famous for its doo-wop ’50s musical culture, its neon art-deco motels, and...

    Love was in the air as NJ Governor Chris Christie won his new object of obsession, President Obama, a teddy bear while the lovebirds strolled along the boardwalk in NJ. With his administration mired in scandal, Obama is trying to play his greatest hits – revisiting all the places where he got a bump in the polls. But the media seems to be missing one of the biggest stories from the day, and only Glenn had it. And while many news outlets picked up on Chris Christie stepping in to win a stuffed teddy bear for President Obama, only Glenn...

    Mayor Bloomberg made an impromptu visit to the Rockaways this week—although he was predominantly there to discuss Sandy recovery efforts with local paper The Wave (and declare that the age of the wooden boardwalk is so over), Bloomberg also was confronted by some Occupy Sandy members. And for once, he had nothing but praise for them: "Thank you for everything you've done. You guys are great," Bloomberg told them, as you can see in the video below. "We really do appreciate it, all kidding aside. You really are making a difference. Goodbye," he said. (VIDEO AT LINK) Bloomberg probably would...

Onlookers scurried into nearby stores and restaurants, huddling in fear as the bullets flew near...

    New Jersey's most popular beach town is about to make a decision that has been unpopular with environmentalists around the world -- using wood cut from the Amazon rainforests to repair a section of its boardwalk. Wildwood, voted the state's best beach last summer by vacationers and others, will become the latest of several New Jersey communities opting to use the more durable rainforest wood to build or fix boardwalks. Environmental groups contend the world's tropical rainforests are being wiped out by logging to satisfy demand for this kind of wood. Mayor Ernest Troiano Jr. said Wildwood reluctantly turned to...

    The world's first boardwalk was nailed down at the Jersey Shore in 1870 to solve the nuisance of sand being tracked into hotels. Now boardwalks themselves are the problem in some Shore towns. Plans to redo the fabled boards of Wildwood and Ocean City this fall have environmentalists and activists fighting local officials over the wood for the projects. In bid specifications for the work, both Cape May County towns have requested wood from the ipe, a tropical tree that grows in Central and South American rainforests, fragile regions some environmental groups argue are being ravaged by unscrupulous loggers.

McKnight broke off the chase when speeds reached 40 mph because he feared for the safety of the few pedestrians who were on the wood

That doesn’t mean coalition troops and civilians stationed at the largest military base in southern Afghanistan can’t enjoy a (sometimes bouncy) walk on the boardwalk, and grab some American fast food while they’re at it. The wooden structure, located near the geographic center of the base, was a pet project of Lt. Col. Jim Hardy, the recently departed...

Under the sale agreement, Asbury Partners could demolish the building, build a new club elsewhere in the city and call it the Stone Pony, while Santana would be allowed to use the name to...
