There’s nothing quite like a day of hanging out with a gaggle of your favorite gals.
An Monmouth County man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of armed robbery and kidnapping in connection with November 2016 Neptune Township and Asbury Park crimes, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni announced on Friday.
An investigation started earlier this year culminated last week in the arrest of an alleged area cocaine dealer, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni announced.
As the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Class of ’78 prepares for its 40th reunion, one more place has been set at the In Memorium table — Bill Caldwell’s.
It’s summertime and the living is, well, let’s say pretty fishy if you live in the Rumson-Fair Haven area.
In fact, it’s downright status quo when you grow up in the area to do so with some sand between your toes, a fishing pole over your shoulder, a crabbing net and trap and a bucket in which to tote your catch home — even if that catch is a couple of river rocks, some seaweed and a dried out crab shell.
It’s part of the magic of living by the Navesink River — growing up Rumson-Fair Haven style.
It’s a simple concept. And it’s one of those fabulous things in life that’s free. A walk, a view, a little fishing for a great summer day.
So, the Simple Summer feature today is all about fishing for some fun down by the river — honing in on a little spot by and on the Fair Haven Dock.
The catch is a keeper.
Take a look at our slideshow above for the whole picture. (And don’t forget to click on the lower right icon to enlarge!) See you down by the river!
The Monmouth County DWI Task Force will conduct two DWI checkpoints from Friday through Sunday, Brielle Police Chief and Task Force Coordinator Michael W. Palmer announced.
Remember that horror movie When a Stranger Calls? The babysitter gets a repeated freaky call from a stranger asking, in measured terror tones, “Have you checked the children lately?”
Well, that movie, and its resounding iconic question, ironically came out about the time that today’s Retro Pic of the Day was taken. And, rather, on the minds of the parents of many RFH teens back then was more recurrent chant of “Have you checked the teens lately?”
Well, maybe. Maybe not. But, if and/or when these guys were checked on, the above scene, or something similar, is what parents would have found. Good, ol’ harmless goofing around. No, there was no boogyman after these teens on a hot summer’s day at a Sea Bright beach in the late 1970s.
They did a good enough job scaring one another with their own mere presence (in a good way, of course) and pranks.
You have to wonder how many times it took for them to perfect this little pyramid by the seashore without tripping one another up. Hmmmm.
Recognize any of these clowns, uh, I mean fine upstanding Rumson fellas? Wait, one of these guys is from the Class of ’78. Guess who.
The weather has been downright steamy and stormy lately. When the sun’s been out, it’s been a kind of dive in and cool off moment.
That in mind, there’s nothing quite like making a big summertime splash in the ocean with some RFH buddies.
So, the Retro Pic of the Day is dedicated to the warm and fuzzy, the splash and staying oh, so cool with RFH friends.
These guys are great friends from a late ’70s or early ’80s graduating class at RFH.
Everyone in the … ocean!

An 18-year-old Middletown woman and a her family dog were killed in a fire in her Neptune Place home early Tuesday morning, Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said.
There will be a DWI checkpoint on Friday night in Sea Bright that will be run earlier than the usual checkpoint hours.
Once upon a time, in those school days right before summer, when Knollwood School kids gathered on Sportsman’s Field for, well, some Field Day fun, let’s just say it was a bit hard to keep them focused.
