Sandy helps shore town reach deal on bar closings - Article Photos 5/6

FILE - In this On May 6, 2012 file photo, a beer bottle sits wedged into the fence of a homeowner near the Point Pleasant Beach, N.J. boardwalk. The town and its largest boardwalk bar operator have reached a deal to drop an earlier bar closing law in return for the company dropping lawsuits against the town, and contributing up to $1 million toward the cost of fixing the storm-damaged boardwalk. The town last year took a number of steps to combat rowdy behavior by tourists drawn to boardwalk bars. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry)
