Eyewitness News OG

This is a new Blogfinger segment.  It will only work by sending us news items relating information that hyou have witnessed in Ocean Grove.

A.  Last night, a car came down Delaware Avenue and crashed into my car, parked next to my house, curbside.  A loud crash was heard by a neighbor, and the incident was witnessed by another neighbor, dog walking.  The first neighbor came out onto his porch and saw a silver or greenish Volkswagen Beetle stopped at the scene and then it rode off, turning left onto Mt Tabor.

My car was left sitting partially on the grassy strip.  The witnesses did not get the license number, but one neighbor recognized the car as being from our part of OG.  NTPD came to the scene immediately and set out to find the “leaving the scene” perp.

Within about a half hour, they caught up with the car on Memorial Drive.  The driver did indeed live near me.   She was given several tickets and high fines.

My car sustained $5,000.00 in damages.

It’s pretty shocking that a neighbor would not have stopped.

B. A couple from OG were getting ready to move away, and they left some black garbage bags out with the trash.  The trash workers were seen rummaging in their garbage.   When confronted, they said that they thought that recyclables  might have been in those bags disguised as regular garbage.

Without speculating on what occurred, it is disconcerting that this has occurred. No summonses were issued.

These are the rules , from Neptunetownship.org  DPW:


Here is a quote from Mayor Eric Houghtaling dated 2013:

From Neptune Township Mayor Eric Houghtaling:  

“”Mayor Houghtaling

Mayor Houghtaling

“In Neptune Township, we have several goals in establishing our new single stream recycling program:

1.  It is cheaper for us to recycle than to pay “tipping fees” to the landfill.

2.  We get paid for materials that we recycle.

3. We think that it is easier on the homeowners to put all the recyclables in one container without having to tie newspapers, etc.

We hope that the residents will abide by a few simple rules.  It is required that homeowners recycle, but that will not be enforced by special inspectors or police. However, there are ways we will know who is and who is not recycling. Mistakes are one thing, but blatantly not recycling and not participating in our new easier process  will have consequences.

If anyone is not sure what they can or cannot recycle, they can call public works during the week during normal business hours or stop by the yard seven days a week. I hope this helps you.”

This lovely but largely unknown Cole Porter song was first  posted on Blogfinger in 2012. It’s time to hear Gertrude Lawrence perform it again.  —-PG


Gertrude Lawrence (1898-1952) was a musical stage star–singer and actress. She was born in London. In 1923, she was introduced to American audiences when she became the first British female performer to star in a Broadway show. It was a musical review by Noel Coward called “London Calling.”   Subsequently she was featured in two Gershwin shows including “Lady in the Dark.”  The NY Times review called her “a goddess.” In 1951 she won the lead in the original cast of the” King and I” for which she won a Tony for “best actress.”

In 1933, she starred in a Cole Porter show called “Nymph Errant.” Wickipedia says, “The somewhat controversial story concerned a young English lady intent upon losing her virginity. Porter considered the score his best because of its worldliness and sexual sophistication. The musical was produced in London in 1933 and received its US premiere in 1982.”
