Analysts from Purdue University and the University of Texas, in cooperation with the Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group, conduct focus sessions May 23 in Manahawkin.

Researchers seek home owners of Tuckerton, Little Egg Harbor and Long Beach Island. Sessions are scheduled for 4-6 PM, and 6:30-8:30 PM. Those who take part will be offered $40 for their time.

OCLTRG did not pinpoint the site in which the focus groups will take place, or how the information would be employed, but there's an easy way to find out. Email Assistant Executive Director Bridget Holmes, or call 732-569-3484. Include your contact information and your choice of sessions.
