Neighbors and some officials indicated that the Ridge Baseball Club may have made them a victim of the club's success — in attracting tournaments to the Valley Road baseball complex. The Township Committee responded to complaints of parking on neighboring streets by prohibiting parking in some spots. Meanwhile, the club says it will renew its tabled request to install artificial turf in the infield at the complex, a proposal derailed by the parking issue.
This Sunday launches the start of a yearlong celebration of the history of St. James R.C. Church in downtown Basking Ridge — with a chance to learn about many fascinating facts that most parishioners don't likely know.
It was a fun event for many local kids, not only the nine Basking Ridge children and teens who won gardening prizes (provided by Back to Nature Garden Center) for their award-winning sunflowers or sunflower-growing journals in different age categories. Who even knew sunflowers grew this big? The contest was launched by the Bernards Township Beautification Task Force.
Bernards Township residents are invited to a forum this Wednesday night for the three candidates — a Republican, Democrat and an Independent — competing for election to one three-year seat up for grabs this November on the Township Committee. The forum is scheduled to be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ridge High School, 268 S. Finley Ave.
