Angelo “Junior” Petrone was sick of shoveling sand.

Every year, winter storms would blow sand across the wide, flat beach and pile it like snow drifts on the deck and yard of his family’s house in the South Seaside Park section of Berkeley Township, according to a report on nj.com.

And every spring, when the family came down from New Brunswick to open up the tiny shoebox bungalow for the season, Petrone’s parents assigned him the job of shoveling it all up back onto the beach.

One fall in the late ’70s, Petrone, then in his mid-teens, gathered some driftwood and scraps of snow fencing and laid it across the yard to block sand from blowing onto the property. It worked.

Done by private citizens. voluntaryists. Not the public takers. Otherwise they would have been washed Away. Do not count on the public takers to help you. They are never proactive.
