FROM THE PIXILATED mortician who spent the day at the Dublin House in preparation for his umpteenth Bruce concert to the blue-jeaned Mom who flew in from Rhode Island to hear the guy who used to play at her husband's high school dances, the crowd at the Bruce Springsteen concert at the Count Basie Theatre last week were, for the most part, seasoned Bruce veterans who know how to roll with the punches.
MAKE WAY FOR the red, white and blue!
The Borough of Red
Bank will celebrate the hundredth anniversary of its incorporation this weekend with a parade and picnic
on Saturday and a Boat parade and maritime exhibition on Sunday - and
everyone is invited.
RED BANK - A west side resident who is a running for a seat on the borough council is asking for help in ridding his neighborhood of members of the world's
oldest profession. The profession Leighton Avenue resident John Tyler was talking about is not politics.
RED BANK - The borough is facing a tough time over its finances.
In the face of a faltering economy, the borough is seeing a decline in revenue from development permits and other sources.
The borough also expects a significant reduction in state aid, although it is still required to adhere to state mandates for which there is no funding.
RED BANK - Is the purchase of a new fire-police vehicle a necessary expense to ensure public safety or an unaffordable luxury for a municipality facing a precarious financial situation?
That question was raised at Monday's Borough Council meeting as members debated the need for a new fire-police vehicle.
RED BANK - A Tinton Falls woman was arrested this week for allegedly impersonating a police officer and an immigration officer, and for robbery, according to police.
Police arrested Maria Collins, 41, and charged her with two counts of impersonating an officer involving incidents that occurred on April 29-30 and on Sunday.
WALL - Saturday's Monmouth County Softball Tournament championship game between Red Bank Catholic and Mater Dei was one of those games in which both team had much to be proud about. For RBC, it was winning a nine-inning classic, 1-0, on a two-out single by Holly Klodin, but Mater Dei showed that it a small school could compete with the best that the Shore has to offer.
NEPTUNE - Usually, when a team loses a championship by a point, there is great disappointment, but that wasn't the case with Rumson-Fair Haven girls track coach Joann Johnson. The Lady Bulldogs were edged out by Matawan,
54-53 Saturday with Colts Neck right behind with 52 points. Rumson, though, had some fine individual performances. In the end, it
was Matawan's strength in the field events that made the difference.
