It's Take a Chance Day! It's also the second (and final) day of Morristown National Historical Park's annual Encampment Weekend at Jockey Hollow. Why not take a chance and visit the reenactor camps and ask how their Revolutionary forebears survived the hard winter in that very spot! Kids can learn to drill just like Continental soldiers, the whole family can watch colonial games -- it's more than battles! Today's schedule: www.nps.gov/morr/planyourvisit/encampment-weekend-2017.htm
The British are coming! The British are coming! See a reenactment of the occupation of Trenton by Beitish forces in 1775 at the Old Barracks on December 3rd ...
The British are coming to Trenton! Come to the Old Barracks on Saturday December 3 as the 17th Regiment of Infantry returns for the first time since December of 1776. This event will commemorate the occupation of Trenton by British troops just weeks prior to the Battle of Trenton, and offer visitors a view into this often misrepresented side of American history.
Throughout the day you can interact with reenactors as they portray the daily lives of British soldiers. These men will drill, perform musket demonstrations, cook over the outdoor camp kitchen, sew winter clothing, and more in this unique event that will show a side of the Revolutionary War not often seen before.

There was a one car accident at Crossroads - ShopRite Plaza in Toms River which seems to have closed down Scottrade and Sports Clips due to the damage to the front of the building. I went outside to take a walk and I turned the corner and there were about 10 emergency vehicles (police and fire) in front of the stores.
Crazy accident at the Crossroads – ShopRite Plaza on Rt 37 in Toms River. This person must have been going VERY fast to take out two of the pillars before crashing head-on into the third. I’m not sure if the person was drunk. suffered a medical emergency or if the brakes failed. I did not
Welcome To LBI The sign of summer tomorrow on LBI - the traffic lights will be in effect and no longer in blinking mode.
This is something locals always have to get used to when this switch occurs, more so than tourists since tourists rarely enjoy the benefits of the traffic lights being "turned off" in the off season. ...
Today is the last day of blinking lights for the season all you fabulous LBI lovers! Tomorrow, all traffic lights become fully-functional across the sandbar. Please drive safely and be aware of your surroundings at all times. #BeOnLBITime #welcometolbi #lbi #community
The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is issuing a warning letting people know that seal season is spilling over into the tourist season. Seal pups will still be found coming onto the beach. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE and call them at 609-266-0538 so they can send staff out to check on it. ...
Seal season is not quite over. Please report all sightings and stay back 50 yards from a resting seal. If everyone would SHARE the word, then we'll hopefully give the seals the space that they need to rest and be on their way. Most of the seals on beaches are young pups at this point. Call us if you see one so we can send a staff person or trained volunteer to check that the seal does not need our help. 609-266-0538 Thanks!
