BEDFORD HILLS, N.Y. — The sound of Pamela Smart arrives before she does. Down the prison hallway it comes. Boot heels clattering on floor tiles. Moving fast.They call her “Tinker Bell” here, she says, because she flits from one place to another like the cartoon fairy, always in a hurry, always in motion, trying to forget that she has all the time in the world. Years before O.J. Simpson’s case became a made-for-television extravaganza, Smart starred in the first gavel-to-gavel broadcast of a murder trial in U.S. history. It was a seamy tale of blood and lust. The trial became an international sensation, so compelling that CourtTV aired it in 1991 and a local television station in New Hampshire, where the trial was held, pre-empted daytime soap operas in favor of testimony about sexual obsession and betrayal. Smart lives with the echoes of the truths and the myths of those long-ago days at a maximum-security women’s prison in New York. She was 23 when she … [Read more...] about Pamela Smart: The misunderstood murderess?

Chris Jordan Asbury Park Press Published 7:45 AM EDT Oct 25, 2018 We got it all in Jersey, and lots of it, too. We got rock stars, reality TV shows, Turnpike exits, taxes and more. We also have a seemingly disproportionate amount of haunts, scares, ghosts and things that go bump in the night. Hey, it’s all about being in the right place at the right time, said Don Stine, president of the Asbury Park Historical Society. The carnage of the past begets the spirits of the present. More: Creepy concerts, costume parties and campy fun to haunt your Jersey Halloween “Along the Jersey Shore, hundreds if not thousands of people have died in ship wrecks and not only ship wrecks, but other events,” said Stine. “In particular, the New Era and the Morro Castle, which ended up sitting right on top of each other in Asbury Park, which is very ironic.” Two hundred and forty passengers on the New Era, all of them German, died in an 1854 wreck off of … [Read more...] about What exit for real life horror?

Within the next three decades, nearly 8,000 homes in Charleston County could flood at least 26 times a year if the sea level rises by 2 feet, considered by climate experts to be a worst-case scenario.That's according to an analysis of data released today by the Union of Concerned Scientists in a study that estimates how many properties will regularly flood along the coasts over the next century, given a range of predictions.While this sort of study is published often, this one is unique in that it shows what could happen in the near future to the property values and overall tax bases in frequently flooded coastal communities.The researchers used property data from online real estate company Zillow to give a highly localized picture — by ZIP code — of the number of homes, residents and property taxes at risk.Kristina Dahl, senior climate scientist with the nonprofit that conducted the study, said many people envision sea level rise as a distant problem, a lifetime … [Read more...] about Sea level rise study shows Charleston area one of the riskiest places to live in Southeast
