Jetty rocks are piled. Sand is raked and plowed into a vertical dune-like stretch down the beach. Trucks are digging, pulling and plowing sand. The relatively new boardwalk that earmarked a piece of a beginning after Superstorm Sandy’s wrath is demolished. The Where Angels Play playground has been dismantled. It’s what Sea Bright Public Beach and north and south of it look like on any given day lately. Sea Bright beach rebirth has begun.
Area authorities are investigating an early morning Long Branch shooting that left a city man in critical condition.
The following September arrests were reported by Red Bank police. An arrest does not constitute a conviction.
Let’s cheer it for the RFH boys of 1977! They were game for pretty much anything.
The moment doesn’t get much more classic than this one — some young guys of the RFH Class of ’78 getting all dressed up with somewhere to go, like the RFH football field, just to cheer the girls on in style at a powder puff football game with some feminine wile, gusto and guts to boot!
Yes, you’ve seen this collection of Retro Pic of the (George) Day snapshots of that day in the fall of 1977.
So, just to cheer you on with a smile for the weekend, here they are again.
Hip, hip, holy cartwheel! Gooooooo RFH guys! One question. Where did they get certain under garments to augment (ahem) the cheering gear? We’ve always been afraid to ask.
Recognize any of these renegades? Some are still in the area.
Thanks, once again, to George Day for providing this classic look into the past!

It’s not a typical time of the year for fishing off the end of the Fair Haven Dock. Yet, Wednesday wasn’t a typical fall day, either.
Call it nature’s little overpour of summer. And no one was in a hurry to clean up the spill into the cooler season. The sun was bright, the leaves were turning and falling, and the Navesink River was beckoning the warmth and reflection of the sun and the solace of some lone fishing.

Fair Haven police are investigating a fraud case involving the use of an ATM skimmer at 1st Constitution Bank in the borough.
The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office has compiled statistics for the first nine months of the 2017 calendar year relating to the Bail Reform and Speedy Trial Act that went into effect at the start of 2017.
It’s October. Scary season is setting in. People in the Rumson-Fair Haven area aren’t just out raking leaves, either. They’re haunting up their homes, crafting costumes and getting into the spirit. So, why not add a little extra retro spooking from RFH students of the past?
BOO who or what? It was all in the haunt for RFHers back in the 1970s. They started getting the Halloween party going early on and ended up with a pretty festive feast of ghouls on the grounds of the high school and, yes, beyond.
Yes, football season has kicked into high gear at RFH, so let’s take a moment to tackle this handsome team of players of an unknown year and the issue of name and uniform style.
Is it all in a name or uniform? Certainly not. It’s all about the game and how it’s played, of course. But, there are some quirks worth taking the ball and running with for a bit. No harm, no fumble. Just fun.
