Long Beach Township, on the cusp of getting a long-awaited beach replenishment work, has fought with and cajoled residents for the past several years to sign over easements for the work. These takings represent some of the last pieces needed for the project to start.

LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP —In the ongoing battle over how far government can go to build protective beach dunes in New Jersey, a group of oceanfront homeowners in Long Beach Township has sued the town over what it says is an illegal taking of property as a major beach replenishment project nears.

The homeowners, mostly in the affluent section of Loveladies, contend the town based its actions on a law that doesn’t apply to their situation and took portions of their property without their knowledge.

Eight singers went home tonight from ‘The Voice,’ including Ricky Manning of Jersey City

Tonight’s episode of the “The Voice” brutally whittled the top 20 to 12, with early frontrunners Luke Wade and Danica Shirey as well as Barnegat Light’s Matt McAndrew voted through. (Jersey City transplant Ricky Manning was sent packing.)

The top two vote-getters from each of the four teams advanced to the finals automatically, and the mentors saved one of their remaining artists. The only relatively surprising pick? Indie singer Jessie Pitts by coach Blake Shelton. That meant he passed over one of his personal favorites, country singer James David Carter, whom he had earlier picked over Craig Wayne Boyd in the battle rounds before stealing back Craig in the knockouts.

Team Blake

My prediction: Craig Wayne Boyd, Reagan James and James David Carter.

Voted in by viewers: Craig Wayne Boyd and Reagan James.

Saved by Blake: Jessie Pitts. He says the decision was solely based on who can thrive on the stage, as opposed to who is the best singer.

Going home: James David and Taylor Brashears.

Team Pharrell
