Sandy's Monday night tidal surge littered rocks all over South Shore Beach destroying the reconstruction of the beach and parking lot that was done last Spring.

Once there they tip toed through the garden of rocks strewn all over the entire beach.

When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
