Monday morning raids by the FBI and New Jersey Law Enforcement results in several arrests in Lakewood of residents who allegedly ran a welfare scheme to defraud the government of over a million dollars, law enforcement sources confirm to WOBM News this morning, as first reported by the Asbury Park Press.

The suspects are accused of falsely reporting income to public assistance programs to get things such as medicaid, section eight housing assistance, food stamps and social security disability and more arrests are possible.

A Nine-month old Lakewood boy remains hospitalized in the burn unit Monday morning after pulling a hot coffee percolator on top of himself Sunday.

The boy suffered severe burns and needed to be airlifted to St. Barnabas in Livingston.

Police say his mom was home at the time and that it appears to have been an accident.

It's in a billion-dollar hole and doesn't meet the needs of everyone, so who really needs the National Flood Insurance Program? 

Shore Congressman Tom MacArthur says nearly 140,000,000.00 of us in the country and he's gone to the drawing board to make revisions to the Re-authorization bill with affordability in mind.

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) expires on September 30, unless Congress reauthorizes it.
