Postmasters The Story Of Highlands From , when Giovanni de Verrazano first came to explore the area, through the 17th and 18th Century Dutch and English settlers, and up to the 20th Century, the first sight of land for the many hundreds of thousands of immigrants and visitors to our shores was the rugged and thickly wooded hills of the Highlands of Navesink. Mitchell, at feet above sea level the highest point on the U. Eastern Seaboard, has welcomed many of the most historic and legendary figures in the development of America.
Joshua Huddy , the Gloucester fishing fleets, the U. Armed Forces, and the infamous Rum Runners; as the setting for such legendary figures as Capt. William Kidd, and the bewitched “Water Witch” and “Lust in Rust” of James Fenimore Cooper’s flowing imagination; and as a mecca for fishermen, bathers, hikers and artists, the hills of Highlands have stood towering in the fore front of the development of the New Jersey Shore.
The history of Highlands is as diverse as the varieties of trees, wild flowers, fishes and people that populate its woods, shore and waters – no area of the Jersey Shore has played so important an historic role, nor gone through as many changes as the little town of Highlands and the ever changing spit of land called Sandy Hook.

Captain Chris Hueth reports that fishing was a little better today. We caught some fish on jigs. Guys did manage several keepers. Some spots were better than others and we did manage a little catch. Bring your shads and crocs tomorrow.

Fishing in Cape Hatteras, NC is legendary. Hatteras offers outstanding year round fishing for Tuna, Dolphin, Wahoo, and Billfish. It is one of the shortest runs to the best fisheries, anywhere in the world, and we are thrilled to be able to bring this fishing option to our customers. The run can be as short as 10 miles and is usually not more than This means more fishing time! Currently we are targeting Bluefin Tuna ranging from 80 pounds up to pound monsters!
Yellowfin can be found year round when the Bluefin are not around, and Wahoo will show up in force with Mahi and Billfish close behind in April and May. Hatteras has had an absolutely incredible Billfish Bite the last couple of seasons in June, and we are locked and loaded! Beginning in February, we expect the Bluefin fishing to pick up and if things are at all like last season, it will be EPIC from mid February through early March.
The fish are typically to pounds. We try to find the fish trolling, then get on top of them and hook them up jigging.

Animal Tears By Royal J. Nadeau PhD Last spring, our neighbor called to us from her deck. It’s been bleating for two days and driving my dog bonkers. We haven’t seen the mother around either.

In Cape May County, New Jersey , officials advised residents on barrier islands to evacuate on October 26, becoming a mandatory evacuation on October Most schools, colleges, and universities were closed October 29 and at least out of school districts were closed October The declaration allows the state to request federal funding and other assistance for actions taken prior to Sandy’s landfall.

Only for runners or good mountain bikers September, by mystang52 I rode the entire length from Nyack to the end at Haverstraw on my hybrid bike. It became a quixotic quest once I started, but frankly it was not fun, and maybe dangerous. A couple of steep hills, but numerous other rolling hills. On the downhills easy to pick up speed too dangerous for the crushed gravel surface.
I never spun out or fell, but I can see that one could easily do so. This was a scenic trail, but I was too busy white-knuckling to have the time ti take in the view!

August, by plesorgen My wife and I did this trail on a weekday in August. We started in parking lot D, then rode north to the lighthouse, and then we turned around and continued to ride into Sea Bright. The trail was great, open, and pretty empty on a weekday. I would imagine it is packed on the weekends, especially in summer. It is flat, for the most part open, and there are rest rooms along the way. We had lunch in Sea Bright, and then returned to our car.
Overall, a very picturesque and relaxing ride. I would recommend it highly. Awesome bike trail August, by rosalind33 My hubby and I loved this bike trail. We just purchased 2 folding bikes and wanted to try them out. We biked only 2 miles but it was awesome.

By Brother Nathanael Kapner Copyright There are so many unanswered questions regarding the Sandy Hook killings that it not only boggles the mind but inspires anger and legitimate outrage. Even Lieutenant Paul Vance, head of the Connecticut State Troopers, admits that much information surrounding the crime is being withheld. But there also some issues that we need to keep the cards close to the chest. And what about the first responders? Why were they not allowed to enter the school until DAYS after the murders?
Why not those with an opposing view? Was that helpful for you all? My daughter Natalie was interested in asking him if he could pass some kind of legislation so that the only people that had guns were military personnel and law enforcement. And if people needed guns for sport that they could go to a range and the guns would have to stay there.
Banning guns is NOT the answer. Americans have abandoned Christ and their accountability before God. Instead, more and more questions keep piling up. No rifle, we are told, was in his possession at the scene of the crime.
