Golf: Radnor's Walker claims PIAA championship

SPRINGETTSBURY -- Radnor junior Brynn Walker is a big, strong girl who can blow her tee shots 30 or 40 yards past many of her high school competitors.

That, however, is not why Walker brought home the PIAA Class AAA championship home from the Heritage Hills Golf Resort Tuesday.

Walker needed poise, focus, determination and the wealth of experience she gained playing a national junior schedule this summer to outlast Canon-McMillan senior Lauren Waller with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

Phillies sign pitcher Jerome Williams to 1-year deal

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Right-hander Jerome Williams has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Williams was 4-2 with a 2.83 ERA in nine starts for the Phillies after being claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers on Aug. 10. He also pitched for Houston last year and was 6-7 with a 4.

U.S. expands Ebola checks; Rwanda to check Americans

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fending off demands to ban travel from Ebola-stricken West Africa, the Obama administration instead tightened the nation's defenses against Ebola by requiring that all arrivals from the disease-ravaged zone pass through one of five U.S. airports.

The move responds to pressure from some Congress members and the public to impose a travel ban on the three countries at the heart of the Ebola outbreak, which has killed over 4,500 people, mostly in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, since it emerged 10 months ago.

Wayne man charged in overdose heroin death of Berwyn man

Justin L.'s Review of The Tomato Bistro - Manayunk (2/5) on Yelp

Have been personally hearing from contractors and receiving phone calls about Anthony Tartaglia Commonwealth Code Enforcement who handles the Ridley Park Borough Code Enforcement.

The emphatic and consistent words used to describe the borough's newly hired Code Enforcement subcontractor are, " arrogant, ignorant, impossible to work with, never shows up for scheduled times to inspect.  Doesn't return phone calls, then shows up with an attitude when a follow up phone call is…

As a resident of RP, got a ? With all the discussion regarding its visual beauty or not and maintenance, are the residence of this town aware that between the use of lawn chemicals/treatment and the continued use of mosquito spraying creates runoff making the lake the reservoir for all these contaminates? May look beautiful on its surface but may be a body of water that will not sustain aquatic life, basically dead water. Where is the discussion about that...Hmmm, maybe just my issue or…

Toward Safer Rail Tank Cars

Posted by Jim Butt on September 30, 2014 at 8:08pm 1 Comment

Here's an article that should get some folks attention.  The CSX line along our borough line uses these older rail cars and they remain a hazard until a new design is developed and tested.  CSX appears to be opposed to the upgrades.

String of Officer Suicides Rattles DelCo's Police

Posted by RidleyParkOnline on September 26, 2014 at 9:30am 0 Comments

In the aftermath of a third Delaware County police officer suicide in less than 4 weeks, RPOL reminds our members how important it can be to know our Ridley Park's police officers, to talk with them, and to tell them how much we appreciate their protection in our town; you might just make a friend.

While police officers are supposed to be strong and nearly invincible when they wear their bullet proof vest, sidearm, and uniform, the self-inflicted death of a Darby Borough…
