People in the area knew it was coming — a four-month West Front Street Bridge closure.
But, right now, with plans long in the works to replace the bridge, which spans from Red Bank to Middletown, Monmouth County officials today announced that there would be intermittent lane closures in the area in preparation of what has now been determined to be a Jan. 2 shut-down of the span.
Until that closure, county officials announced in a release, “there will be intermittent lane closures between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Hubbard Avenue and other roads on the Middletown side” of the 92-year-old bridge.
By all accounts, the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Tower Players’ Miracle on 34th Street was a smashing success.
The show, which ran Friday and Saturday nights, closed with a Sunday matinee.
Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect couldn’t make it to this show, but cast member Julia Mosby’s mom Barbara captured a couple of post-show moments and sent them. So, the photos are being featured as our Retro Pic(s) of the Day.
The photos, of course, included Julia and RFH grad and friend Ben Ley, a former RFH Jazz Ensemble drummer, who now attends NYU.
Take a look. If you have any photos you’d like to add, please feel free to send them to us, with proper credit, at email@example.com.
Yes, R-FH people, it’s cold outside! So we thought we’d warm you up with a Retro Pic of the Day that’s all about summer and one warm hearted lady — the Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair circa 2012 and Jeanette Choma.
We call her one of our fair ladies, and she’s just that. She’ll tell you in a heartbeat that she’s lived in Fair Haven for 50 years and she’s been working that Grab Bag Booth almost as long.
The following is an edited press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School:
Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) French teacher Christine Berg is one of only about 4,000 teachers nationwide who has received this year’s national board certification in Early Adolescence through Young Adulthood/World Languages – French.
According to information released by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, National Board Certification is the “gold standard” for accomplished teaching.
To date, more than 110,000 teachers in all 50 states and the District of Columbia have become board-certified teachers, or NBCTs.
Well, with all the excitement of the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School Tower Players’ opening night of Miracle on 34th Street, it was inevitable that we would run a Retro Pic of the Day featuring none other than the Tower Players circa 1977.
So, here in our shot from the yearbook is the group in costume for one gathering or another, or just for fun.
Recognize anyone? Your own Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect founding editor is somewhere in there!
Feel free to send us your retro pics at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, let’s go on with the show!
