Superstorm Sandy

Rebuilding Belmar | Mayor Matt Doherty

Posted: Updated:

Rebuilding the boardwalk along the Jersey Shore after Superstorm Sandy is about to get underway without the help of the federal government.

Construction of the Belmar boardwalk is set to begin in mid-January.

Congress has not approved the relief funding the town is hoping to receive to pay for the new boards. Washington will vote on a small part of the bill later Thursday, but it doesn't help pay Belmar's bills.

Belmar officials say they can't wait to build, because the town needs the boardwalk to be finished before Memorial Day, but rebuilding while waiting for federal money could mean higher interest payments for the town.

Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty talked about the rebuilding.

    Long Island native Madison Beer seems to be walking the same path to super-stardom as her mentor - and the person who discovered her- Justin Bieber. The pop star was on YouTube one day and found a video of Beer singing 'At Last' by Etta James. "I posted a YouTube video when I was 12 about to turn 13 and then Scooter and Justin had gotten in contact with my mom. She was like you're Justin  Bieber, right, right," said Beer about the moment that changed her life.

    At least a dozen scathing reviews were printed about Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s new book on a preservative used in vaccines before it was released. It's not fair, says Kennedy Jr., and he explained why during Good Day New York. "They attacked me for what they believed was going to be in the book which was a discussion about autism and that is not in the book," said Kennedy Jr.
