How could we have a Retro Pic of the (George) Day during baseball season without a photo of the unforgettable RFH coach, Hal Lorme?

Mr. Lorme passed away not long ago. So, in honor of him and the season, we are bringing back this 1970s photo that was featured in a memorial slideshow of the well-liked gym teacher, coach, RFH Ski Club director and RFH Athletic and Jersey Shore Sports Hall of Fame inductee.

Take a look back at the slideshow and remember Mr. Lorme, RFH grads! Just click.

Thanks so much, once again, to George Day for the wonderful photo of Hal Lorme!

A View of the Oceanic Bridge Revamp

It’s a pictorial view from the underside of the Oceanic Bridge, which has been undergoing unforeseen structural repairs before the summer season starts.

“As the construction work has progressed, additional areas of critical structural steel and concrete deterioration were found,” Monmouth County Freeholder Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering, said in a release about the progress of the repairs to the bridge.

The bridge, that spans the Navesink River from Rumson to Middletown, is in need of concrete and steel deck repairs that are slated to be finished on or about April 30.

“The limits of the additional deterioration were unknown when the project began and have become evident during the cleaning and preparation process for the repairs as originally planned,” Monmouth County Engineer Joseph Ettore said in the release. “The additional steel and concrete deck deterioration must be repaired immediately to maintain public safety and the use of the Oceanic Bridge.”

The bridge, being revamped by Howell-based George Harms Construction Company Inc., is closed overnight, from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., with intermittent daytime one-lane closures.
