Billions have been spent rebuilding property and restoring infrastructure. There is one amenity that some Jersey Shore residents will never again enjoy…old-fashioned telephone land lines. The AP reported last week that the Ocean County borough of Mantoloking <a href="http://www.app.com/viewart/20130708/NJNEWS18/307080098/Mantoloking-just-start-providers-abandoning-copper-phone-lines">lost its copper wire telephone infrastructure </a>in the storm, and that Verizon – which services the area -- refuses to replace it. The story cited Mantoloking as “one of the first places in the country where the traditional phone line is going dead.” <strong>Rob Fleischman</strong> doesn’t see it that way.
