Tommy Inge is finally throwing in the towel.

Not only is the town going to lose the opening of his wonderful dream of a family place to gather and enjoy in the Hornets Nest Restaurant, but he will also be closing the 'little' bar. I have always hated politicians and now I know why. Mr. Inge saw an opportunity to improve this town for his family and ours and he took action. He poured alot of funds into his dream, much of it from his own pocket. But he was blocked. By petty, greedful people.

Since his conception of this family spot, Mr. Inge has poured not only his time, but also money from his (and his family’s) pocket. He is a true ‘homeboy’. But time & time again he was shot down and each time he and his crew rose to the occasion and ‘fixed’ what they were told was wrong. Only to be told someone made a mistake and it was wrong again.

As time passed, the decision was made… Enough is enough.

Tom has spent so much in the past 2 years, lawyers and such, to get the restaurant opened, and has been so wrongfully stymied on it that he must now not only give up the dream he had for the town, but also for his family & friends and the people of this town. I, for one, looked forward to working a couple of lunches there to help support my family. And I am not alone. Mr. Inge took a township eyesore and transformed it into a beautiful structure.

In this town we have many decrepit structures and everyone complains about them. Our government mouths about improving the basic visual structure of this town. Then one person with a vision for the people and his children’s future buys an old 'eyesore' and transforms it. But the politicos make so many waves and impossible demands.

For those of you who have driven up/down Lakehurst Road every day past the old library for the past couple years and have noticed the changes in it and anticipated the chance to take your wife to a special dinner, or the whole family to a lovely meal.
Forget it.
The dream is dead.

I could not wait until the Hornet's Nest opened. Every time that I passed, I kept waiting to see a "Grand Opening" sign. To see that the politicians in this town could give two sh-its about cleaning up and making this town more presentable is just discouraging! I wonder how many times they will stop the new physician's office from being completed? Highly doubt they will... In this little town that is full of drug addicts, run down/vacant buildings, you would think someone would wake the hell up and see that not only the Hornet's Nest would have contributed tax dollars to BM, but also a few jobs for those that are unemployed and could just walk to work.

Nice going Pemberton Twp. leaders... You all suck!

Politicians in Pemberton Twp put their own feelings and needs before the residents and of course we the residents have to pay for it. One day it will come back to haunt them. It really disgusts me when they try to utilize religion as a reasoning for what they do.

It seems to be coming true,Pemberton TWP will be another Camden. I also was awaiting the Hornets Nest to open.This TWP is going downhill fast,from it's corrupt police,politicians,and drug dealing gang members,and poor school system As soon as the housing market for sellers goes back up,I will definately sell my house and move out of this God forsaken town.

The Hornet's Nest is now open for busy. It opened on the 4th of July. Those of you out there who think that Mr. Inge did this himself, you are sadly mistaken. I would not put it past our town counsel and mayor to delay his opening, or any other business coming to Pemberton Township, because of their political views and feelings. They are all corrupt and need to go. Pemberton was a much better place to be when we had Mayor Kay in office. We need to change our whole counsel and mayor to those that actually want Pemberton to prosper and succeed, not just fall through the cracks!
Either way, the Hornet's Nest is now open, as I have stated above! Can't wait to try it out!!

The Place is beautiful and the food is VERY good. Still need to work out a few kinks... but that's to be expected with a new business. I wish you all the best. We can be proud to have a nice new establishment by a local family... not the big outsiders that come in and get our business.

Have never supported this man after hearing the things out of his mouth belittling the people of browns mills. Believed he purposely became a councilman for his own interest of opening this place and pocketing more money into his wallet. So now the Grand Opening has come and gone. Glad he wont be voted on the ballot again!!

I personally could give a darn about all the controversy and the politics. It's refreshing tosee the library transformed into a family restaurant and all who call Browns Mills home shoudl be proud to have this in their neighborhood. maybe it will start a trend to re-development and re-newal, as honestly, that town is looking a lot like "little Camden" with all the run down and abandoned buildings. From reading this blog the town has a lot more to worry about than old buildings--corruption, drugs,poor community services---WTH?! This restaurant looks like a breath of fresh air...just hope the meanies don't try and suffocate it.
