    The Mom’s Beat: Some common sense tips for parents on Halloween

    Many of the rules and traditions my husband and I follow in our house are inherited from our parents, and our rules about Halloween candy certainly follow that pattern.

    When I was a kid I darted from house to house, filling my pillowcase with candy to see how much loot I could collect in the allotted trick-or-treat time. But even amid all of the excitement, I always knew not to eat anything until my…

Strong support for dune project

To the editor:

I strongly support the construction of the 16-foot sand dune project for the Wildwoods. Hurricane Sandy resulted in a 14-foot storm surge in Sea Bright. Although the proposed sand dune project would have minimal protection from a storm like the March Storm of 1962, which brought persistent flooding over a period of three days, it would have protected us from a direct hit of a storm like Sandy, the category 4 Hurricane of 1821 or the Category 3/4 Hurricane of 1804. During those storms, there was a strong but apparently brief storm surge. The communities to the north of us exposed to the storm surge from Sandy with sand dune barriers did much better than those lacking this protection.

To the editor:

The entire coastline of New Jersey is going to be ruined by the Army Corps of Engineers and their like-it-or-not attitude with building dunes. Dunes wash away. It's like dropping money into the ocean.
