British Royal greeted by Gov. Christie to begin tour
He may have focused his visit on Mantoloking and Seaside Heights, but Prince Harry's trip to tour Jersey Shore devastation began in Sea Girt. The British Royal landed on the base here, and was greeted by Gov. Chris Christie. The governor took to twitter, announcing the prince's arrival, and presenting him with a "Royal Fleece." Christie's own fleece became synonymous with his press conferences and tours following Hurricane Sandy. Prince Harry continued to Mantoloking and Seaside Heights as one of the last days spent stateside of an approximately one-week trip. The purpose of his visit to the Jersey Shore was to tour devastation of areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Community Development Block Grants may be used by homeowners to rebuild
With 100 days since the devastating hurricane, Gov. Chris Christie’s visit to Sea Girt focused on what he called another rebuilding success — the reconstruction of the borough’s boardwalk. The visit was to celebrate another town’s big step in rebuilding their shorefront, and the governor used the opportunity to predict summer will be “open for business” on the Jersey Shore. “It’s been a hundred days now, they are wondering, is the Shore going to be back for the summer, and there are those who don’t think so. We know that is not true,” Christie said. The governor toured Sea Girt’s beach and now-under construction boardwalk, then praised that another town was rebuilding “responsibly” and with “future generations in mind.” Getting people back…
