RED BANK: SHINE A LIGHT FOR BIKE SAFETY

Dean Ross, founder of the “Shine a Light Foundation,” has announced the second annual “Shine a Light” free lighting for bicycles program in the Red Bank Area. The program, which last year helped to save countless lives by installing lights on more than 200 bicycles free of charge, returns to St. Anthony of Padua Church Parish Center on the evening of Monday, April 4.

After weeks of silence, the Red Bank council is expected next month to consider a proposed resolution that has thrust the borough into a national debate on illegal immigration.
