Tribute: Barnegat Light memorial unveiled to lost fishermen

BARNEGAT LIGHT — Tears mixed with the salty air of the sea Saturday as more than 200 people showed up to help dedicate the Fishermen’s Story Memorial near the Barnegat Lighthouse.  The memorial was created in memory of Jim Mears, who died Jan. 11, 2012, when his commercial fishing boat, the Mandy Ness, sank off Long Beach Island. He and his two brothers, Dan and Rick, had gone out in three separate boats in search of monkfish. [email protected]
