Herrera's triple in 8th lifts Phillies over Pirates, 2-1

PHILADELPHIA >> On yet another chilly April night in their ballpark, the Phillies stayed hot at home.

Odubel Herrera hit a go-ahead triple in the eighth inning to lift Philadelphia to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Herrera, Cesar Hernandez, Carlos Santana and Maikel Franco each had two hits for the Phillies, who have won nine of 11 overall while improving to 7-1 at home.

Americans told to toss romaine lettuce over E. coli fears

PHOENIX >> U.S. health officials on Friday told consumers to throw away any store-bought romaine lettuce they have in their kitchens and warned restaurants not to serve it amid an E. coli outbreak that has sickened more than 50 people in several states.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expanded its warning about tainted romaine from Arizona, saying information from new illnesses led it to caution against eating any forms of the lettuce that may have come from the city of Yuma.

N. Korea, setting stage for talks, halts nuclear, ICBM tests

SEOUL, South Korea >> North Korea announced that it will suspend nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile launches ahead of its summits with Seoul and Washington, but stopped short of suggesting it has any intention of giving up its hard-won nuclear arsenal.

The announcement, which sets the table for further negotiations when the summits begin, was made by leader Kim Jong Un at a meeting of the North Korean ruling party's Central Committee on Friday.

Road Woes: I-95 South reduced to 1 lane in Chester starting Friday night

PennDOT announces that the Delaware County Regional Water Authority (DELCORA) is planning to close the right and center southbound lanes of Interstate 95 between the Interstate 476 and Route 320/Route 352 interchanges in the City of Chester from 8 p.m. Friday, April 20 through 5 a.m. Monday, April 23, for the replacement of a damaged utility pipe underneath the interstate.

Darts & Laurels: Starbucks brews up a week of controversy

A look at the week that was, the issues and people who made headlines, and a few darts and laurels for those who deserve them.

DART: To Starbucks. People seem to sit around these popular coffee shops without necessarily buying something all the time. Apparently only when "sitting while black" did this become a problem at one Philly location.

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

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…
