Though the Barnegat Lighthouse has stood as a beacon to sailors and beachgoers along the Jersey Shore for almost 150 years, the state's fiscal constraints might force a local agency to take control of the park. During the last two weeks, a variety of groups, including the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce and the Borough of Barnegat Light, have expressed an interest in operating the Barnegat Lighthouse State Park. The state Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Parks and Forestry runs the park now. During a recent Borough Council meeting, the council adopted a resolution asking the department, the agency that now runs the park, to consider turning over its management to a local group. Officials said the group would include municipalities on Long Beach Island and ...

Barnegat Township and the Barnegat Water Utility have erected a Watering Guide Sign in front of the water tower on West Bay Avenue.  The sign will change daily and will indicate the daily amount of watering that is needed to lawns healthy, or you can check in their website for a daily update.  For example:  The Daily ET Index for Friday, June 10, 2011 is 0.25 inches. This means you should water your lawn 15 minutes today, if you haven't watered your lawn in at least three days. Watering amounts will be based on the ET (Evapotraspiration) number published daily in the Asbury Park Press.  The ET number monitors rainfall, wind speed and humidity to determine how lawns should be watered in order to them healthy.  You will still need to comply with watering restrictions.  Simply, water per ...

It isn't often I get to participate in distributing more than $106,000, but I did this evening.   It was the 4th Annual Barnegat High School Scholarship Awards Ceremony.  More than 50 Barnegat and southern Ocean County organizations came together to honor graduating high school seniors and give them a financial boost in their advanced studies. I attended for the Friends of the Library (FOL), presenting the Barnegat FOL $500 scholarship.  I like giving away money! Good luck, Barnegat High School Class of 2011!

A new restaurant by Michael Selvanto, Michael's on the Bay, was recently opened in Barnegat overlooking Barnegat Bay. Michael's On The Bay, at Sun Harbor Bay Club, is sure to be the "Jersey Shore's" premier Steak, Seafood & Pasta House. Proprietor Michael "Uncle Mike" Selvanto, decided to provide eclectic cuisine & warm service to the neighborhood & tourists alike with breathtaking bay-front views. Michael's On The Bay is a great place to "flock" when meeting friends, relaxing, or getting away from the daily routine. One of the unique ideas Michael has for the restaurant is putting up a 50 foot screen in the outdoor dining area for a drive-in...except this drive-in is by boat.  That's right, you'll be able to sit on your boat and watch a movie...great fun! Michael Servanto is a music p...
