Interesting article in the Allentown Call about the potential for the Deepwater Horizon disaster to affect Cape May and the Jersey Shore. From the article (which I recommend you read in its entirety by clicking the link): Beachgoers this Memorial Day weekend can expect pristine conditions at the New Jersey shore, but coastal experts and environmental officials are worried they may not last.
All eyes are on the path of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. If the residue is carried into the Gulf Stream, a major warm-water current running from Florida up the eastern seaboard to Iceland and Norway, it could affect East Coast beaches this summer.
Another interesting story can be found in the Herald, which details the Jetty Motel's owner's efforts to build a four-story hotel on the property. You can read that HERE ... and again, another snippet:
The Jetty Motel is a two-story “L” shaped building built in the late 1950s. The proposed condo-hotel would be four stories tall with parking under the building on the first floor level.
The city’s Historic Preservation Commission approved demolition of the motel in February 2006.
