Last week's nor'easter helped deliver a message in a bottle that was tossed into the ocean 24 years ago from New Jersey to North Carolina.Ocean City held a contest in 1985 to reward the vacationer whose bottle traveled the farthest. The message was written by Heidi Kay Werstler of Trembler's Trailer Park in Pennsylvania.Workers at The Sanderling Resort & Spa in Duck, N.C., found the bottle while cleaning up after last week's storm.The contest has long since expired. But Ocean City wants to track down Werstler to award her a prize of saltwater taffy.___Information from: The Press of Atlantic City, http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com
