Proposal: Public Media Funding Eliminated

The FY 18 federal budget has been released and it calls for eliminating funding for the Corporation For Public Broadcasting.  Although this funding accounts for 0.01% of the federal budget it provides critical funding for over 1,400 of local public television and radio stations around the country.

23% of 90.5 The Night’s annual budget comes from CPB.  Imagine this station running 23% less of the programming you love…23% less of all this great music, 23% less interviews, 23% less DJs, 23% less traffic, weather, and local programming.

This is a true threat to what you enjoy and rely on.  We need the support of you, our listeners and members.  Help us provide 100% of what you love on the air now!

Private New Jersey beach fears state will seize its business

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. (AP) — A privately owned beach on New Jersey’s shore is contesting the state’s plan to build dunes on it, fearing the state’s real motive is to seize its business.

The latest challenge to Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s plan to build or widen dunes along most of the state’s 127-mile coastline comes from a privately owned beach in Point Pleasant Beach. Risden’s Beach acknowledges the state’s right to build the dune, but fears the state will try to usurp its business if it wins the condemnation case. The state says it has no intention of operating Risden’s Beach, but the company’s lawyer says the state is claiming the legal right to do so. It’s the latest in a long line of court challenges to the project, nearly all of which have failed.
