Pelican Island Residents In Both Berkeley and Toms River Can Go Back Home Briefly Thursday

Homeowners have a three-hour window to return to their homes, Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. says

Pelican Island residents of both Berkeley and Toms River will be allowed to return to their homes between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, weather permitting, Berkeley Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said tonight.

Residents will have to check in at the Bellcrest Plaza at 935 Fischer Boulevard in Toms River tomorrow morning. Proof of residence is required: driver's license, tax bill or utility bill, Amato said.

"Only one vehicle per household with a pass will be permitted to cross the bridge," the mayor said. "We appreciate all of our residents' cooperation."

The approval to re-enter Pelican Island came after "long negotiation sessions" between Berkeley and Toms River officials and various state agencies, Amato said.

"We know this information comes quick and often at inconvenient times for some..." the mayor said. "We need all to cooperate fully, so we can allow further re-entry to your homes, possibly at a later date."

Using an email alert and a post on the township website, Toms River Township issued an identically worded message for residents on its portion of the island.

Pelican Island sits between the Toms River mainland and Seaside Heights along Route 37 near the Tunney and Mathis bridges, which remain closed with emergency access only over the bridge since Monday Oct. 29 when Hurricane Sandy hit.

Headline should really state: Mayor Amato finally spotted, makes comment, then heads north to power and heat.

Why are the residence of Seaside Heights being treated like the dregs of society? Our house was unscathed, yet we are limited to 2 small suitcases per household.

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer. The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path. It starts with building facilities. We need http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com/ Coach Outlet Online to start investing in outdoor courts and indoor gyms for kids to play.

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".
