Bike shop in Asbury Park serves as after-school volunteer activity for kids - 11/29/10 12:45 PM
"Miss Kerri, this won't come off," said King Woods, who was working on a Dunelt bike. "These old bikes, it's always a tight fit with the forks," Kerri Martin replied, handing the 14-year-old Woods a screwdriver. "Wiggle it down." The wiggling worked, and Woods continued on his repair job. "I'm a bike doctor," explained Jack Pitzer, who was working on an Electra Townie 7D. "I'm taking bikes and giving them a second life. I give a diagnosis, get them treated and send them home." He smiled. "We never lose a patient."

The “Jersey Shore” Cowboy – Monmouth Man Named a New NFL Head Coach - 11/17/10 09:42 AM
The new Head Coach of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys is 44-year-old former Monmouth County resident, Jason Garrett. It's a very big opportunity for a very smart guy. Although marked with the dreaded "interim" label, Cowboys owner, billionaire Jerry Jones, says Jason will get a fair shot to keep the top job based on team performance over the second half of the season. New Beginning?It's hard to see how the Cowboys could do any worse. They began their season at 1-7 and the defense allowed 35+ points in three straight games, something that hadn't happened since their first season in 1960. Jason, (1 comments)

Assembly Gives Final Approval to Private Transfer Fee Ban, Bill Now Goes to Governor - 11/02/10 11:00 PM
NJAR® secured another victory in its efforts to ban private transfer fees in New Jersey. On October 25, 2010, the General Assembly unanimously approved A-2861, legislation that bans the use of private transfer fees (PTFs) on newly constructed properties and creates new disclosure requirements for existing properties where PTFs are in place. The measure, unanimously approved by the Senate last week, now goes to Governor Chris Christie for his approval. NJAR® would like to thank those REALTORS® who participated in previous Action Alerts supporting this legislation, which enabled A-2861 to receive full legislative approval in just over four months. In addition, (0 comments)
It is official... Asbury Park is the home of the "‘World's Largest Gathering of Zombies"! THANK YOU ZOMBIES! The outbreak in Asbury Park did in fact BREAK THE WORLD RECORD. Before the Halloween Weekend, the Guinness Book record for the ‘World's Largest Gathering of Zombies' was 4,026. WIS International Inventory Services, a non-partial 3rd party who counted each individual zombie that walked into the beach ‘quarantine zone' gave us an official count tonight of 4,093 zombies! That being said, the inventory company, event organizers and city officials are all certain that the actual body count was quite a bit more. Many (1 comments)
