Can anyone give me the name of the newspaper most commonly read by personnel at Ft. Monmouth Military base or surrounding area. I find when moving to a new area I can get more information from the newspaper than any other source - provided I know the name and can get something online.

the star ledger is not too popular in monmouth county, the only people who read it are transplants from north jersey, the ledger doesn't even cover mnmouth county stories, stick with the APP or the local weeklies

You're right. Being a transpant I craved the Star Ledger, but what I found out is in Monmouth County you can only get what's called the "state edition". I didn't want the news about New Brunswick or obituaries from Trenton. I wanted the good ole Newark Star Ledger. I called them and the best they can do is offer it on-line to me at the subscription price. Somehow that's not the same when you're having your morning coffee.

I would agree with others and say the Asbury Park Press, the press also puts out a weekly publication called the Transcript which is centered on local NJ topics.

In case you didn't know... Ft Monmouth is closing and that area is going to be a ghost town.

the fort may be closing, still years away and the area will hardly be a ghost town, what exactly are your predictions based on?

I think there is still a glimmer of hope left on it not closing. And rest assured, that precious Monmouth Cty. land will in no way go to waste and become a "ghost town". Does anyone know how much acreage is involved?
