Towns Have Boundary Issues

Mary Moore has lived for 83 years in Jackson, New Jersey. Or so she thinks.

Keith Kugel ... is suing Jackson and Howell, claiming that in the 1960s officials from both towns secretly moved the border that divides the two towns and separates Ocean and Monmouth counties. According to the Jackson resident's conspiracy theory, 8 square miles of northeast Jackson really belong to Howell.

Nonsense, said Moore, who was born and raised in those 8 square miles and who raised her own family there.

"It's still Ocean County, Jackson Township, and it will always be," she declared, echoing the sentiments of officials in both towns who called Kugel's contention baseless. [Link]
