I'm sorry that M.R. Montgomery (Op-ed Page, Aug. 20) doesn't appreciate the beach, more important, that wonderful body of water called The Ocean. Nothing soothes my "withered brow" more than looking out on that ocean and walking in it along the sandy oceanfront. He should try it - he may like it. Mr. Montgomery obviously enjoys the country paths - trees, plants, insects, animals and bugs. Perhaps he doesn't like that either. In any case, that's why we have chocolate and vanilla.

CANBERRA, Australia - Australia has created the world's largest network of marine reserves and will restrict fishing as well as oil and gas exploration in a major step to safeguard the environment and access to food. With the expansion announced Thursday, Australia will protect 1.2 million square miles of ocean. The reserves will encompass a third of the island continent's territorial waters, which sustain more than 4,000 species of fish. Australia is surrounded by the world's third-largest ocean territory, which provides important habitat to threatened species of whales, sharks and turtles as well as spectacular corals.

Among my earliest memories is this one: I'm about 3 years old on a beach facing a roaring mystery called "the ocean. " I'm terrified. It's wild and fierce - and I'm so small. But my mother is next to me, and she takes my hand in hers and tells me not to be afraid. Because she is there - because she is my constant in a chaotic world - I meet that wild thing lapping at our feet. And that day, I begin my love affair with the ocean. Ever since, it's been a torrid romance.

When the Connors family decided to rebuild their Shore house in Avalon, they knew the most important element of the design was already in place - just outside their window. "Our No. 1 goal was to capture the views," Terri Connors said. "We didn't want decks or awnings in the way. It was a very different concept, if you look at other houses that are on the beachfront. This is probably the only house on the island with 180-degree ocean views. You see the dolphins in the morning and the afternoon.

Sorry, New York. Tough luck, North Jersey. Try as you might, you'll get no sympathy around here. You're being required to finally make the same hard sacrifice other communities, including Philadelphia, did long ago - to quit dumping your sewage sludge into the ocean. And the fact that you've dragged your heels and thrown your weight around in Washington for the past decade or more has only made the alternatives more complex and expensive. New York City and communities in northern New Jersey currently dump more than 28 million tons of sewage sludge into the ocean each year.

OK, CALL IT far-fetched, but after his death on Thursday, Ed Devlin may have made it known how happy he was with the Eagles' victory over New England three days later. After Ed died, a Catholic priest who went to his bedside, told the family to expect a sign from Ed letting them know everything was all right. "While we were watching the Eagles game on Sunday, I suddenly knew what the sign was," said his brother, Terry. "It was the Eagles beating the Patriots!" Whatever, Ed certainly would have been thrilled by the unexpected victory.

Ocean City's Half Marathon is no idle Rumer The shore's not closed yet, at least not for the running crowd. This Sunday will be the sixth running of the OCNJ Half Marathon in Ocean City, N.J., an event weekend that now includes a 5k and a 10-mile walk. It's not an entirely new event, though, says Lisa Rumer, who has also been putting on the town's Labor Day race for 25 years.

"So I talked to my partner, and he decided to pursue it, and, lo and behold, [the Beach Boys] liked the idea of playing in Ocean City.
