Light Switches and Circuit Wiring

Electrical Question: I would like to switch my basement utility light fixture. The Power from 3-wire with two red and one white to light. Another 3 wire going out of box not connected to anything (protected). Can I switch the unconnected 3-wire. I would also like to put another light in the circuit and use one switch for both lights.

This electrical question came from: Scott, a Homeowner from Kalamazoo, Michigan.
