While the Atlantic roils at high tide, the rumbles of a crane moving six-ton boulders muffle the sound of waves crashing against the beach. It is a welcome noise for Donna Patrignani and others who live at the southern tip of this barrier island resort. "They can make all the noise they want to with that crane because that noise means that we'll have a beach here eventually and our homes won't fall into the ocean," Patrignani, 47, said as she walked her golden retriever and watched while the dinosaur-like contraption lifted charcoal-colored rocks from one pile and dropped them onto another to form a rock jetty, or groin, that will reach 675 feet into the ocean.

An 18-year-old casino security guard was arraigned yesterday on charges that he beat his young girlfriend to death using rocks and a ball-peen hammer on an Atlantic City jetty early New Year's Day. Police found the body of 16-year-old Helen Croudy, a Atlantic City High School junior who had aspirations of attending Temple University, at the far end of the jetty at Melrose and Maine Avenues after fishermen noticed a significant amount of blood...

Five people sustained massive injuries last night when a speeding car was driven onto an Atlantic City Boardwalk ramp and landed on a jetty where several men were sitting, Atlantic City police said.

A search is still under way for a 10-year-old Philadelphia boy who disappeared Sunday evening while swimming in the ocean at Atlantic City. Officials have now classified the mission as a recovery operation, instead of a rescue. Two state police boats, one with a tow-able side scan sonar unit, are involved with the search along with other agencies. The Coast Guard said its boats looked all night for the boy, identified as Khitan Devine, after a close-in search of the surf was called off because of darkness late Sunday.

A sailboat evidently hit a submerged jetty off Barnegat Light, N.J., and broke into pieces, but the four people aboard escaped serious injury, the Coast Guard said. A crew member aboard the Odes of Joy notified the Coast Guard about 7:20 p.m. Thursday that the 38-foot sailboat was taking on water. Officials say the boat, which had been sailing in three- to five-foot waves, broke up on the rocks after hitting the jetty. A 47-foot Coast Guard boat happened to be patrolling in the area and reached the sinking craft just minutes after the distress call went out. Crew members then rescued the four, who were not identified, and took them to the Coast Guard station in Ocean County.

Sailors here have long-known about the submerged jetty near Pea Patch Island, a treacherous stretch of rocks built by Confederate soldiers imprisoned at Fort Delaware during the Civil War. To avoid it, they navigate far north of the island to a "hole" marked by a buoy on which three grey herons posed heroically yesterday afternoon. Sailors who don't know about the jetty soon find out. At the Delaware City Marina here, a mile from the island, several boats whose hulls have recently been ripped out by the rocks sit as idle testaments to their captains' ignorance.

Sanford wins GOP nomination MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. - Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford on Tuesday cleared another hurdle in his bid for a political comeback, defeating a former county council member to win the GOP nomination for a vacant U.S. House seat. With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Sanford had about 57 percent of the vote to 43 percent for Curtis Bostic, a former Charleston County Council member. The candidates were vying Tuesday in a GOP runoff in the First Congressional District, which covers the southern coast.

POINT PLEASANT BEACH, N.J. - A fishing boat that capsized moments after setting sail Wednesday morning could remain stuck in the Manasquan Inlet until next week, and it was not clear whether the heavily traveled gateway to the ocean would remain closed until then. The boat's owner and a private contractor were developing a salvage operation for the 70-foot Atlantic Traveler. It probably will not get under way until Friday, a Coast Guard spokesman said. The main concern is that bad weather could further damage the boat and spill the 3,000 gallons of diesel fuel still aboard.

In Cape May this week, they said no to more nos. Or at least for now. Cape May City Council, sensitive to criticism that it was overregulating beach activity, has decided not to vote on a new beach ordinance that would have restricted kayaking and jetty fishing. Instead, council members are going to spend the winter reviewing all their beach regulations. The ordinance regulating beach and promenade activities was tabled this week, by a 5-0 vote, by members who said they wanted to examine the issue of overregulation more thoroughly.

In this place that is both a fragile ecosystem and the Jersey Shore's answer to Daytona Beach, the debate continues: Should the plight of piping plovers roosting on the dunes take precedence over a desire to drive SUVs on the beach? Or can the 3,800 SUV owners who paid $150 for the right to four-wheel on the sand in Brigantine - one of only three New Jersey locations that permit beach driving - impinge on fishermen, surfers, kayakers, kite flyers, bird-watchers, swimmers, or beachgoers who simply want to sit and relax?

Unlike other barrier islands that link the Jersey Shore resort coast like a long strand of pearls, this town comes to an abrupt dead-end at its northernmost point. And longtime Brigantine residents and visitors - everyone from surf anglers to high-rollers - will tell you they like it that way. "Brigantine is not somewhere you stop on your way to somewhere else," says Phil Fors, 57, who has been casting surf lines off Brigantine nearly his entire life. "When you come over that bridge, you're here because you want to be. And that remoteness is what makes it the place that it is. For me and many others, that's what makes it a paradise for surf fishing.

Joe Bascio had his lucky weather-beaten floppy hat on and his favorite line in the ocean off the 98th Street rock jetty. He'd only been out 15 minutes and already had his first weakfish in his red plastic bucket. "Looks like dinner," said Bascio with a chuckle. "But you should have been here yesterday. My son caught a manta ray. Took him a good half-hour to reel it in. A hundred people were out watching. Threw it back, but it was exciting. " Surf fishing sometimes seems intimidating to shoobies, and even some seasoned shoregoers.
