Jersey Magazine with Jim Monaghan

Jersey Magazine with Jim Monaghan

Last Sunday morning here on Jersey Magazine, my guest was Kevin Larner.

Kevin is president of Ridge Baseball Club (RBC) in Basking Ridge, New Jersey and he was telling us about a lawsuit that had been filed against Ridge Baseball Club and Bernards Township by several homeowners over issues related to the Ridge Baseball Complex.

Well, on Monday of last week, Kevin was pleased to announce that that law suit has been dismissed and this is the press release from Ridge Baseball Club.

Ridge Baseball Club press release on the lawsuit dismissal

This morning, the several homeowners who filed suit against Ridge Baseball Club and Bernard’s township seeking to invalidate RBC’s lease with the township for the Ridge Baseball Complex, filed a notice of dismissal with the Somerset County Superior Court terminating their lawsuit.

In the statement, Kevin went on to say, “Ridge Baseball Club is thrilled that the plaintiffs have decided to dismiss the lawsuit. We cannot express enough thanks to all the community members who reached out and voiced their overwhelming support for RBC over the past week.”

“We also want to thank our local elected officials. It was truly humbling. We are all blessed to live in a community as supportive as Basking Ridge.”

Kevin finished the statement by saying, “It is now time to put this entire unfortunate incident behind us and focus on what is important, the kids.”

“The RBC board and all the volunteers who support RBC are happy that we can now turn 100% of our attention to our true mission, providing the best baseball program possible to the boys and girls of Basking Ridge.”

The story was recently covered by Channel 7 Eyewitness News.

  • Laura Gassner Otting On Why Your New Years Resolution Will Fail

    Laura Gassner Otting is back for her third visit to Jersey Magazine. A Washington Post and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Laura likes to challenge people – like telling you that your New Year’s resolution will fail.

    As an author and dynamic public speaker, Laura’s goal is to empower people to realize their full potential and reach beyond often self-imposed limitations.

    In her book Limitless, Laura spoke of getting unstuck when pushing for personal and professional goals that sometimes feel well beyond our reach.

    Laura’s most recent book Wonderhell; Why Success Doesn’t Feel Like It Should, takes us to the next level – success isn’t a final destination, but the opening of another door that builds upon what we learned in Limitless.

    In a recent email to her audience, Laura started out by telling them why their New Year’s resolutions were going to fail, and then offered suggestions on how to NOT let that happen.

    Laura and Jim Monaghan talk about all of that and more in this morning’s interview.

  • Rock N Ruff

    Hi Animal Lovers,

    We finish our “Trifecta Of Cuteness” third video with our friends from Gingerbread House Animal Rescue and Sanctuary Gingerbread Dogs Dot Org   

    This great group reached out to Rock N’ Ruff a while back to gain some attention to the beautiful, small dogs, many seniors, and many Pekinese in their care. I have known many people who have adopted from Gingerbread House and they have a wonderful reputation for rescue, caring, and vetting the dogs they take in, Lynn their founder brought a carriage full of pups to her visit and we decided to break them into groups! So cute and so. much fun.

    This week we highlight “Bodie and Spaulding”….. Both of these pups require a bit of patience and lots of love.


    Bodie is small, a purebred Pekinese, super gorgeous, and best in a child-free home (as he was purchased and brought into a home with small children and did not have a great experience) He is chill, learning to trust and doing GREAT in his foster home. He is decompressing and learning to be a dog.


    Spaulding Spaulding has a similar history, is pure Pekinese, and needs an adult-only home. He is energetic and fun…..a bigger guy (not fat, it’s the type of Pekinese he is!) he knows basic commands, is housebroken, and would make a great companion in an adult home.
