Scarborough Marine Group to Begin O.C. Private Boat Slip Dredging

first_imgBy MADDY VITALEWhen it comes to maintaining a home, dredging doesn’t typically come to mind on the to-do list.But when owning waterfront property complete with a private boat slip, Sean Scarborough, owner of Scarborough Marine Group, said dredging to remove muck and silt could make all the difference in the world.“It increases the value of your home,” Scarborough said in an interview Friday. “It is just like maintenance to replace your roof, or cut your grass. It is the same thing. And when you own waterfront property, you don’t want it to be mud front property.”Scarborough’s company has been doing work in Margate and Cape May to unclog the channels for bayfront homeowners, making boat navigation easier.“We started in Margate in October,” he said. “We have been busy. We are on our way to Stone Harbor and Strathmere and back to Ocean City in February, where we will do work through March.”The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection extended the dredging season to March 31 back in 2019, giving homeowners an extra month to have their boat slips cleaned out.Scarborough estimated work to begin dredging private boat slips along Ocean City’s bayfront around Feb. 16. He noted that they will begin at Tennessee Avenue.Thick sediment has been clogging Ocean City’s lagoons and channels along the back bays for years, but with city projects as well as private dredging contractors such as Scarborough Marine, the channels are cleaner.Video Courtesy of Scarborough Marine Group  Ocean City Public Information Officer Doug Bergen said of dredging the private boat slips, “It’s in everybody’s best interest to have as much material as possible removed from private slips.”Scarborough, whose family-owned company dates back 75 years, specializes in doing private slips.“We do about 40 jobs in one year. Our jobs have ranged from 50 cubic yards to 15,000 cubic yards,” Scarborough said.He said the city’s work to remove muddy silt from the channels with an aggressive dredging program has greatly improved the lagoons and the channels.“The city’s consistent maintenance helps out all of the bay area because it enhances the water flow. That is what we all want and it helps with the dredging of the private boat slips.”Scarborough’s company does a lot of dredge work on private slips in Ocean City year after year.“We have booked many jobs in Ocean City and we are actively taking new contracts in Ocean City,” he noted. “The Ocean City market is good.”Dredging the boat slips makes properties more attractive for homeowners, renters and boaters, Scarborough added.And typically, depending on the location, a dredging job lasts five to seven years before it has to be done again. Some jobs last seven to 12 years, he said.“I think that the Ocean City project is getting closer to a maintenance program now,” he said. “I think people recognize that dredging your boat slip is no different than having to cut your grass. You need to keep up with it or it will overgrow.”For more information call 609-904-5444 or visit scarboroughmarinegroup.comA boat operated by Scarborough Marine Group pushes one of the containers, called “hoppers,” that hold the muddy sediment after it is removed from the lagoon back in 2019. Sean Scarborough’s company will start dredging private boat slips along Ocean City’s bayfront next month. last_img read more

Long Island Gang Murder Suspect Nabbed After 1 Day on FBI 10 Most Wanted List

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Juan Elias Garcia, 21, has been added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.The reputed MS-13 gang member wanted for his alleged role in murdering a Long Island woman and her toddler four years ago nearly set a record for the shortest time spent on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted.Juan “Cruzito” Garcia, 21, an El Salvadorian immigrant who is the last of four suspects wanted in connection with the notorious Central Islip double murder, surrendered Thursday to authorities in Nicaragua, the FBI said. His capture came a day after the FBI offered a $100,000 reward Wednesday for tips leading to his arrest and added his name to the nation’s worst fugitives.“Garcia’s callous disregard for human life resulted in the senseless murder of a young mother and her helpless 2-year-old son,” George Venizelos, FBI Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office, said earlier this week.The record for shortest amount of time on the list goes to Billie Austin Bryant, who was apprehended two hours after making the list in 1969 for murdering two FBI agents. Victor Manuel Gerena, wanted for a $7 million Connecticut robbery, holds the record for longest time on the list: 30 years. He’s still at large.Garcia had dated the victim, 19-year-old Vanessa Argueta, but when the relationship ended, authorities said Argueta had asked friends in rival gangs to jump Garcia.Garcia then allegedly got approval from a Brentwood MS-13 clique leader to kill Argueta, who brought her toddler son, Diego Torres, along for what she thought was dinner at a restaurant, authorities said.Garcia and two others lured her into the woods in a Central Islip industrial park, where they fatally shot both the mother and her child in February 2010. Their bodies were found the next day.Heriberto Martinez, the MS-13 leader who prosecutors said authorized the execution, was sentenced to life in prison in December for racketeering as well as charges related to the murder.Two others other MS-13 members face up to life in prison as well in the case. A federal jury convicted Adalberto Ariel Guzman in September and Rene Mendez Mejia pleaded guilty to the murders in June 2011.Garcia was reportedly the first MS-13 member to make the Ten Most Wanted list. Authorities say the gang is the largest and most violent on LI.last_img read more

Energized leaders avoid “panda-monium”

first_imgPandas are like complacent leaders—they don’t accomplish much.by: Lora Bray“Pandas Literally Evolved to be Lazy,” says The Washington Post.Initially, the panda diet included meat and plants. About two million years ago, it became exclusive to bamboo—a hard-to-digest, low-nutrient food. Consequently, panda energy expenditures declined.Like complacent leaders, they don’t accomplish much.Consider impending evolutions in the financial industry and different attitudes leaders might employ as they anticipate and respond to change.‘Let go of the illusion of control.’ –Ooguay, Kung Fu PandaChange is afoot for those providing financial services, according to risk advisory company Willis Group.

One of every three households in your membership is dangerously exposed

first_imgAs Director of Client Relations at LifeHelp, Mike Lemon coordinates a team of industry professionals, carrier partners, and sales representatives who are dedicated to the financial success of credit unions … Web: www.lifehelp.com Details One of every three households in your membership is dangerously exposed to financial catastrophe through the loss of a loved one. It’s a very serious problem, but fortunately, one with a very simple solution – Life Insurance.The difficulty is that this solution is not being widely made available to the low and middle income households that need it most.With the number of U.S. life insurance agents continuing to decrease, and the remaining agents tending to focus on the affluent, an insurance gap has been created among those lower and middle income households. In fact, 41% of all adults – 95 million Americans – have no life insurance at all, and half of all U.S. households say they need more life insurance.The unpleasant yet unavoidable fact is that over the next 12 months some within your membership will have passed away. Sadly, the family and loved ones left grieving are faced with the additional burden of funeral expenses and other end of life costs, not to mention the possible loss of income from the deceased.With life insurance ownership among your members at an all-time low, this is your opportunity to help. Working together, we can offer solutions for members who need coverage and don’t know where to turn.Your membership includes the young and the not so young, the healthy and the not-so healthy, two parent families, single parents and empty nesters, and so on. By including many types of coverage, our program meets the full spectrum of your members’ life insurance needs, including final expense coverage, family income replacement, home ownership protection and everything in between.Contact Allied Solutions to learn more about how we offer life insurance solutions through LifeHelp to give your members easy and affordable access to family financial security and help your credit union generate revenue. 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Mike Lemonlast_img read more
