A reprise in honor of forever RFH best friends … Two who we saw yesterday are pictured here in this jolly TGIF kind of RFH club. Where are they? Cheers to Friday, courtesy of the RFH Ladies of the Round Table!
There’s a pair of besties in every crowd, or club. And there’s a club for just about everything, including things that likely would be frowned upon in the millennium.
It’s not every day that you find a fox literally having a ball in you back yard, or enjoying a little swing on the seesaw, for that matter. Sometimes it’s on a Friday — last Friday, in fact, in this case. TGIF?
“Driver error” is what Fair Haven Police Chief Joe McGovern attributed to Tuesday’s post office accident that left a car in the lobby of the building at the River Road plaza. A similar such accident has happened before and next door.
While the chief said the accident that occurred at 6:19 p.m. that evening is still under investigation, he said that no summonses have been issued at this time.
The facts, so far, he said, are that an 89-year-old local woman “was pulling into the parking spot in front on the post office to mail a letter and accidentally hit the (car’s) accelerator instead of (the) brake.”
The car ended up completely inside the office, breaking out the entire front window and door, the chief said. As a result, there was no structural damage done to the building and “no one was injured, including the driver,” he added.
Fair Haven Police, Fire Company and First Aid responded to the scene.
The vehicle versus building accident has happened in the area and with frequency at one point a few years ago. The last time something similar occurred in the borough itself was about 15 or 20 years ago, the chief said he recalled, when a vehicle struck the building next door.
“You gotta have heart … all you really need is heart!” ~ You Gotta Have Heart, Damn Yankees, lyrics by Jerry Ross
The signature championing song was belted out loud, clear and with a lot heart in the musical Damn Yankees. Heart is what former nine-year Fair Haven Councilwoman Susan Sorensen says you need at the core of not only your own legacy, but that of your home town. It’s a legacy that she’s forever striving to fulfill, on and off the dais.
Service to community is at the heart of family legacy for Sorensen. And, she said recently, she’s not anywhere near done fulfilling hers and continuing in her family’s without skipping a beat.
They call it a gaggle of geese, because when geese get together, they’re so excited to hang out that they are quite rambunctious. Well, maybe just have a lot to say. And they’re a close-knit bunch — just like this group of RFH girls from the early 80s.
