PHOTOS: Lacey's Waterfront Communities Suffer More Flooding

Less than 50 residents still without power

As of 11:30 a.m. Thursday morning, Lacey residents still had to travel roads carefully as garbage cans rolled, large puddles formed and the Barnegat Bay met with the streets.

After a winter storm brought terrential rain and strong gusts of winds, the Department of Public Works was on the roads setting detours and cleaning up the streets.

Homes that were already compromised due to Hurricane Sandy experienced floodwaters once again.

Wednesday night, more than 900 residents were without power. As of 3 p.m., JCP&L's power outage map reported less than 50 customers without electricity.

How did you make out after last night's storm? Tell us in the comments.

Not a problem But don't ask me to pay for your lakes. Never go there.
Louie December 28, 2012 at 02:05 AM
I cannot believe these comments. FRB residents pay taxes as well. All Lacey residents deserve the services and respect of our community . Shame on You.

I'm thinking you don't pay taxes. Cause if you did, you'd be afraid of losing the very high taxes this town collects from all the "charley pearl crap or section 8 housing". You know, waterfront homes are taxed at a much higher rate. And if you ever looked, you'd see your description is about 20 years out of date! But you don't want to let facts, or consideration of other people, get in the way of a good rant!!!!!

It's only Charlie Pearl in the front section of FRB. The rest of us have plowed, and built great houses in a really desirable part of town. And pay for it in hefty taxes. No ones paying for anything we own, that was destroyed. OK? Your taxes agents paying for us to fix stuff. We are. So, sit back, and relax. Just don't stop by and your small boat on your way out for a drink. Our Vikings are in the way.

I think all people that moved to the area from up north should shut up and go back where they came from. You all ruined our area. That's why most of the people from the area have left. City people (Bennies ) should go back to where ever.
Emily December 28, 2012 at 08:46 AM
I think some of the comments on here are rude and sickening!! "let's bulldoze FRB or donate them to Watertown" whoever said that should be ashamed on themselves!! FRB (not the beginning of beach blvd). Is a beautiful and wonderful place to live! These homes are filled with...GENERATIONS of memories. I grew up at FRB and I wouldn't trade it for the world!! If you do not live in this are then you need to just go back to wherever you came from and keep your mouths shut! You may also want to pray and karma does come after for your home with the comments you've made here...karma is a bitch :-)

I fully agree they should just knock down the entire beach it's useless and it's nothing but a headache
Lisa December 28, 2012 at 01:26 PM
Amazing the level of hate and, I assume, jealousy, among the people of Lacey. Glad it's a small minority. Don't worry Emily. They have to live with themselves. That is the true karma.
Lisa December 28, 2012 at 01:26 PM
@ ben dover- see above

what the heck is charley pearl?
Lisa December 28, 2012 at 01:45 PM
He built this great summer community in the 50's/60;s and developed FRB. Little summer houses, no heat or insulation. On the beach there was a pool, tennis court, playground. And of course the bay. Some of those old houses have been upgraded for year-round use. A few not upgraded as much as others. That's what the ignorant are talking about. Some are now beautiful homes. And some have been replaced with larger homes.
Louie December 28, 2012 at 02:28 PM
I agree Emily.. FRB pay taxes and deserve our services. Let the landlords clean up the few that are a mess. We can contact Lacey to notify these Landlords. Most of FRB is well kept and many waterfronts paying high taxes. Some of these comments are sickening.

How long has your family been here. I think your ancestors came from somewhere else should they have stayed.
ed crowley December 28, 2012 at 08:20 PM
I am from up north but I also have been to the Forked River Beach Clubhouse. My father was a bartender there. I know that some people make out ragious comments just to see the responses and the arguing among the responders.
Francis December 28, 2012 at 11:47 PM
sounds like a good time Ed

The problem with Beach Blvd is that the beginning part before you get over the bridge is not well kept by some homeowners. They are mostly rentals. They really should crack down on the landlords.especially on the 100-200-300 block(the beginning). The problem is that the landlords collect the rent and don't care, and why should the tennant. Most people don't realize how beautiful Channels Point, Orlando Drive area, the Hawaian streets(when not flooded) and the bayfronts really are. Call the code enforcement officer @ 609-693-1100 and make a complaint if you want to be heard. You don't have to give your name and can just say how you feel. Write down property address that are not maintained and complain. It's not only Beach Blvd. It's Laurel Blvd as well. There is trash all over the beginning part of Laurel. It's a disgrace. Add nautilus Blvd to that list. Again, if it bothers you call the code enforcement officer.
Condor December 29, 2012 at 12:22 AM
Is it just me. But, does anyone ever wonder what the heck is going on with that lime green house at 201 Beach Blvd? It's been like that ever since I moved down here.
Jay Burnett December 29, 2012 at 03:58 PM
I sent the video to out of town and in once case out of country ex Forked River residents...Here are just 3 comments I got back... "Sorry you guys can't get a break weather/water wise and also saddened by the ignorant comments some have made under the article :-( " "Wow was reading those comments, people are nasty there, a divided town" "Who are these agressive people ? Is this small town America at heart? " My answer to them was maybe they are holdovers from the election, can't drop their nasty pants and come together for the good of all.
Louie December 29, 2012 at 04:05 PM
We are a smaill town these comments represent only a handful of ignorant and rude people. Our Residents came together during Sandy and continue today. Thank You United Methodist Church. We will never forget your help and continued support!
Penelope December 29, 2012 at 06:04 PM
I would ignore people like "Shutupcrybabys". They are known as trolls and write nasty comments just to get a rise out of people. His goal is met if you respond. Don't waste your time. They are ignorant people with too much time on their hands and live a sad and lonely life. I love Lacey and I'm not going to let anyone negative take that away
Jay Burnett December 30, 2012 at 02:35 PM
Absolutely, Pastor Applegage should get the woman of the year award. How she manages to feed all, with this tiny congregation's limited resources is nothing short of a miracle.
Theresa Marie Stackles December 30, 2012 at 06:55 PM
I love Lacey FRB. We owned a Charlie Pearl Bungalow for 18 years, made it adorable , loads of wonderful memories when our children were growing up. Yes we were BENIES, & for the last 17 years we are natives, we knocked our bungalow down, & built a beautiful 3 story home. We improved the neighboorhood,& have made friends with GREAT people. We are sooo sorry the way some people feel about us Bennies, get to know us we are a pleasure to be around. We are fabulous family people , caring giving, concerned for our Community, With OOOOdles of LOVE The Stackles Family
Theresa Marie Stackles December 30, 2012 at 07:15 PM
PS dont the negative people realize if it werent for us Bennies your taxes would be much higher. the Bennies that dont live here all year round, they still pay taxes. Since Hurricane Sandy we are all pulling together even more to make a better Forked River Beach, God Bless the United Methodist Church, what a great teacher how to LOVE ONE ANOTHER Care giving, We sure are grateful to live in such a GREAT PLACE. Theresa Marie Stackles
ed crowley December 30, 2012 at 08:18 PM
We are all Bennies. Unless you live and work in town and never travel out of it .You are a Bennie to someone where ever you go.
Condor December 30, 2012 at 09:26 PM
What's a Bennie? There once was this guy named Bennie who had a beach concession stand in Bradley Beach. He rented beach umbrellas and chairs to the peolpe who would just come down for the day. On the back of his chairs and on his umbrellas he had his name. "Bennie". All the locals had their own chairs and umbrellas. When the day was over, they left the chairs and umbrellas on the beach. That's when we knew the Bennies went home. But, before they went home, left left their money. That's how a lot of people earn a living at the shore, off of tourism. So, Bennie is not a derogatory word. A Bennie is not someone who owns a home at the shore. It's a daytripper. If you don't like Bennies, move to were there are no Bennies and stop complaining about them.

I prefer the story of visitors luggage tags.
