The NATION’S LARGEST WIND FARM is planned offshore in New Jersey – from Long Beach Island to Cape May with over 200 turbines 15 miles offshore. (Photo Credit: Save Our Shoreline Facebook) By Tricia ConteI represent Save our Shoreline NJ, a group of nearly 4000 concerned businesses, homeowners, residents, fishing community members, and New Jersey shore vacationers.The view of the industrialization of our ocean by these giant wind farms is the least of our concerns. At first I was concerned about the view, which will be a horrible blight upon our beautiful Jersey Shore, but now I know that other issues are of greatersignificance. One major environmental concern is for the severely endangered Atlantic Right Whale and other juvenile whales that regularly visit the Jersey Shore. There are currently only 360 Atlantic Right Whales in the entire world. The loss of these whales will contribute to the ecological collapse of the Jersey Shore. Whales play a significant part in the ecosystem of the ocean.As you know, President Biden canceled offshore industrial wind farm projects in New York because of local political opposition. We at Save Our Shoreline NJ are organizing local political opposition to Governor Murphy’s poorly considered plan of industrializing our ocean which is bad for our environment, bad for our economy andbad for the future of NJ.That is why we are supporting and we have an ally in Commissioner Director Gerald M. Thornton and we are asking Cape May County residents, homeowners, and businesses to attend our peaceful demonstration on Tuesday, April 27, at 4:30 at William E. Sturm Jr Admin Building, 4 Moore Road, Cape May Courthouse, NJ. Martha Oldach proudly displays her sign at her Ocean City home.I also urge people to send emails to each county commissioner asking them to support Commissioner Director Gerald M. Thornton in opposition of offshore wind farms.Cape May County Commissioners:● Gerald M. Thornton – Commissioner [email protected]● Leonard C. Desiderio – Commissioner Vice Director –[email protected]● E. Marie Hayes – Commissioner – [email protected]● Will Morey – Commissioner – [email protected]● Jeffrey L. Pierson – Commissioner – [email protected] major economic concern is for the likely increases in our electric bills, which will cripple our New Jersey economy just as we begin recovering from the recession caused by the COVID lockdowns.A major environmental and economic concern is for the fluke fishery because studies in Europe show that similar fish will not cross the electromagnetic fields created by miles of buried cables.” Fluke is important for the commercial industry and is arecreational fishing draw. The negative effects of the fluke not crossing the electromagnetic fields will affect not only the fishing community, but also have a significant negative impact on tourism in our coastal communities – which rely on tourism to survive.I’ve provided the information above to exemplify just a few reasons of why offshore wind is bad for the environment, bad for the economy and bad for the future of the future of NJ.People who want to learn more about the serious dangers posed by the industrial monster wind farms should go to our website www.saveourshorelinenj.com and follow us on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/saveourshorelinenj/ and Instagram.Join our campaign to “Save the Whales and the Jersey Shore!”Tricia Conte Save Our Shoreline NJ
The University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team will come back to LaBahn Arena this week, still unbeaten and still the No. 1 ranked team in the country.The Badgers (9-0-1, 7-0-1 WCHA) continued their impressive five week winning streak against Minnesota State University-Mankato this weekend, topping the Mavericks 3-0 Friday and 3-1 Saturday. Wisconsin managed to top off Mankato, even with heavily modified lines due to the absence of two key players.UW was without key forwards Annie Pankowski and Samantha Cogan this weekend. Pankowski, who is also expected to miss the Badgers next game against Bemidji State University, is currently competing with Team USA in the Four Nations Cup.Even with their first and third lines severely modified, the Badgers still managed to sweep Mankato over two nights of intense play. The Badgers and their star goaltender Ann-Renée Desbiens held the Mavericks off through six intense periods, clinching their third weekend sweep this month.UW has been successful for this long this season due to the emergence of dominant scorers in their last few matchups. Their matchup against Ohio State University saw junior Emily Clark emerge and clinch a win in crunch time. Senior Sarah Nurse stepped up and made an impressive five goals against the then-No. 7 University of North Dakota to help the Badgers defeat top ten foe.Women’s hockey: No. 1 Badgers record first sweep over No. 9 North Dakota since 2010The No. 1 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team swept the No. 9 University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks in Read…This weekend, junior Baylee Wellhausen got her chance in the UW spotlight, when she helped the Badgers skate away from Mankato Saturday. The Badgers had been a point behind the Mavericks until senior Mellissa Channell helped to tie the game up 1-1.Wellhausen would then time two well-placed pucks into the Mavericks net during the second period, helping the Badgers hold down Mankato by a two-point deficit. This would be the safety net that the Badgers would need to win the game, and Wellhausen told UW Athletics that helping to solidify this win felt great.“It felt really good to get the win today,” Wellhausen said. “It was definitely a battle, I think that the team pulled together and pulled off the win and it feels more victorious when you have such a battle like that.”Even with such a modified roster, Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson was proud of the effort that he saw from his team this weekend. With Pankowski’s absence continuing into next week’s matchup against Bemidji, Johnson knows their next home game is going to mark the end of a difficult, but successful, stretch of playing.“The kids played well and hard,” Johnson said. “We’re missing a few people this weekend but the kids got an opportunity and played extremely well. Now we’ve got an extra day of rest before the Saturday and Sunday series, and then a weekend off. We’re getting better which is the most important thing.”The Badgers come home to LaBahn Saturday to take on Bemidji. After almost a month on the road, they will play one last weekend before earning a much-deserved week off.
