For the first time, Facebook spells out what it forbids

NEW YORK >> If you've ever wondered exactly what sorts of things Facebook would like you not to do on its service, you're in luck. For the first time, the social network is publishing detailed guidelines to what does and doesn't belong on its service - 27 pages worth of them, in fact.

So please don't make credible violent threats or revel in sexual violence; promote terrorism or the poaching of endangered species; attempt to buy marijuana, sell firearms, or list prescription drug prices for sale; post instructions for self-injury; depict minors in a sexual context; or commit multiple homicides at different times or locations.

Today in History: April 24, 2018

100 Years Ago - 1918: With his ankle so shattered that he is refused admission to the fighting ranks, John Presley Barr, graduate of the Pennsylvania Military College 1901, has now gone over in service of the Young Men's Christian Association. In a recent letter to the college he says, "As my ankle does not permit me the honor of fighting, I am privileged to assist the more fortunate chap to 'carry on.

Thank You Voters of Ridley Park

Posted by Michael S. Taddei on November 9, 2017 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Thank you to everyone that came out to vote in the election on Tuesday. What started out as a beautiful fall day in our borough turned to truly nasty weather by the time the polls closed. (Special thanks to my sister, shown below, who braved the worst of the weather with me.)

While the result wasn't a win myself or most of democrat team, I am deeply grateful to each of the 950 people that voted for me. I wish my opponent, Jim Glenn, great success in his new role on council. I…

Ridley Park Residents Petition State Representative and County Sheriff for Explanations

Posted by Parkergirl on November 5, 2017 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

On Friday, November 3rd, a political attack ad was sent to residents of Ridley Park Borough accusing candidate Dane Collins of being an “Alt-Right Republican.” This attack included pictures of the candidates young daughter in multiple locations.

We are calling for an immediate explanation of this unfortunate decision by PA State Representative Nick Miccarelli (162nd Legislative District) and Sheriff Mary McFall Hopper (Delaware County, PA). In addition to her role as Sheriff,…

Miccarelli Lies and These are Facts

Posted by Jared Brennan on November 2, 2017 at 9:00pm 10 Comments

In response to State Representative Miccarelli's recent letter to all Ridley Park residents I want to say; "Mr. Miccarelli, stop meddling in Ridley Park Politics and do what you were supposed to be doing as our State Representative! Start securing monies for your constituents and stop taking credit for the sound barriers."

Nick, you continue to hide the Auditor's Report of the Borough's Budget that Ridley Park continues to overspend over a quarter of a millions dollars…

"The Pot Calling the Kettle Black" - Low ball Ridley Park politics

Posted by Jared Brennan on October 27, 2017 at 8:30pm 10 Comments

I just received the Republican attack advertisement in my mail over the weekend - I’m not surprised.   I’m not surprised how low the Ridley Park Republicans will go in their attempt to stop the residents of Ridley Park from voting for councilors who are United for Ridley Park. 

"United for Ridley Park" is a collection of both Democrat and Republican residents who want to end the deception and strong-arm politics that have been running Ridley Park for far too many years. …

Parkers Before Party

Posted by Jim Butt on October 21, 2017 at 5:30am 8 Comments

When they say “Parker's before Party” what does it mean?

It’s about picking good, experienced, knowledgeable people to help manage our Borough, regardless of their political party affiliation.

It’s recognizing that being a Republican or a Democrat has little to do with whether your trash gets picked up reliably, if your street gets plowed in the winter, or if that bridge finally gets fixed.

It’s acknowledging that whether you…
