HEADLINE: In Surf City, a ticklish beach find
The fear is that there is more buried.The discovery of more than 1,000 unexploded World War I-era munitions in newly placed sand on the beach just weeks before the start of the summer season has triggered a public-relations nightmare that no one saw coming.
And no one is sure how to deal with it.
Surf City Mayor Leonard T. Connors has pledged that the beaches will be open by Memorial Day, and the Borough Council has been debating an ordinance that would prohibit beachgoers from digging deeper than a couple of inches when they build sand castles this summer.
Is this another argument against beach replenishment ?
When I home visiting LBI, I might buy one of those t-shirts.
