Shore Guide

LONGPORT, N.J. - The Coast Guard suspended its search Monday evening for a champion powerboat racer who disappeared late Sunday when his pontoon boat apparently hit a buoy and then slammed into a jetty at the southern tip of Longport.
TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Officials from New Jersey's four Shore counties and some municipalities that front on the Atlantic Ocean pushed back strongly Monday against a proposed Senate bill that would allow the towns to voluntarily relinquish the management of beaches to their counties under a shared-services agreement.
The question that hung in the overcast sky over Atlantic City was counterintuitive. Could this part-glitz, part-seedy, all-camp metropolis measure up to its tiny seashore neighbor Asbury Park? (In terms, that is, as host to one of the biggest gay beach parties on the East Coast.)
OCEAN CITY - You've been there, stuck in traffic on the way to the Shore behind a car piled so high with bikes, trikes, and two-wheelers with training wheels that it looks like a Dr. Seuss sculpture.
NORTH WILDWOOD - The rain is coming down in sheets, but Jeanie and Vince Hubach, 48 and 47, of Drexel Hill, are nonchalant. The three dozen children coming from West Philadelphia for the day are still on their way. The weather will improve, the lifeguards
In his sixth - or perhaps seventh - pair of running shoes this year, David Wilcox, 15, ran from the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to downtown Collingswood. His father, Brett, his aunt, Julie Stuehser, and the family dog, Jenna, ran along with him.
SEASIDE HEIGHTS - In a light-blue Ford Falcon convertible, Floyd Moreland used to drive across the country in the 1960s from Berkeley, Calif., to Seaside Heights. Every summer, he was drawn back to work on the carousel, built in 1910, housed on what is today known as Casino Pier.
With the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino's expected closing, Donald Trump, whose name is emblazoned on the casino and who once owned three of the gambling palaces here, said he can't help but feel bad for the resort he helped build.
