Who's who and who's appointed to what
Some familiar Fair Haven names were part of the Borough Council meeting agenda Monday night. The governing body, via resoluton, made appointments to the Fair Haven Fire Department and Public Works.

Ethel Hodgkiss Truex surprised by many Rumson and Fair Havenites
Ethel Hodgkiss Truex thought she was going to Atlantic City on Saturday night. The well-known Fair Haven Fire Company volunteer made it only as far as the Fair Haven Firehouse. Her husband, Joe Truex, former captain and present 2nd lieutenant of the Fair Haven First Aid Squad told her he had to pick up something at the station before they took off. He also told her to come into the truck bay with him to help. When he pressed the button and the door rose, Ethel was shocked to find a crowd of Rumson and Fair Haven friends with roots in the area as steeped as hers cheering her on for her, shall we say, 39th (ahem) birthday? Much love and appreciation was shown for Ethel, her volunteerism and longstanding friendships in the community. For a …

Volunteers are needed for this year's fair
It's a sure sign summer is coming to a close when you drive by the Fair Haven Firehouse and see Majestic Midway trucks, dismantled amusement rides and cleared fire truck bays. They're setting up for "the fair." To Fair Havenites, that's what the Fair Haven Firemen's Fair is — simply, "the fair." It has always marked endings and new beginnings: R-FH students meeting up on the grounds and saying their week-long good-byes before heading off to college; kids coming back together before school starts and talking about who got what teacher; and those many familiar volunteer faces handing out balloons and prizes and serving up some classic fair food. It's always the last year in August, but, to be exact, this year, the fair runs from Aug. 24 to …

For the past 40 years, the Monmouth County Fire Academy has been training firefighters to protect all of Monmouth County. Earlier this week the members of the 92nd and 93rd Firefighter class were recognized in front of a packed room of family and friends for their training accomplishment.

Candles lit for a holiday party in the Carriage House Lane house caught curtains and touched off the blaze. The family escaped unharmed.
A Victorian-era home on Carriage House Lane in Little Silver was destroyed Saturday, with several area fire departments called in to knock down the flames. All of the occupants were evacuated before the major damage took place. Officials said the fire began in the circa 1892 Queen Anne style home at 28 Carriage House Lane when preparations for an annual Christmas party at the Loftus residence went terribly wrong. The Red Cross and neighbors have offered assistance to the Loftus family. The Loftus' will be staying with family during their displacement. The American Red Cross, Jersey Coast Chapter can be reached at 732-493-9100. Five candles lit in the kitchen between the sink and curtains caught the curtains on fire, and flames quickly …
