Nearing 100 days, Trump says his presidency is 'different'

WASHINGTON >> For nearly 100 days, President Donald Trump has rattled Washington and been chastened by its institutions.

He's startled world leaders with his unpredictability and tough talk, but won their praise for a surprise strike on Syria.

He's endured the steady drip of investigations and a seemingly endless churn of public personnel drama.

Major changes coming to how your credit score is calculated

NEW YORK >> The math behind your credit score is getting an overhaul, with changes big enough that they might alter the behavior of both cautious spenders as well as riskier borrowers.

Most notably for those with high scores: Abiding by the golden rule of "don't close your credit card accounts" may now hurt your standing.

CHEAP EATS: $10 dinners to try tonight

Tightening your belt after Tax Day? Stretch your budget with healthy $10 dinners your family will love like black bean chili.

"It's a one-pot meal," said Ashvini Mashru of Wellness Nutrition Concepts in Malvern, who serves chili with a side salad and whole-grain roll. "It is very healthy. It has fiber and antioxidants.

Coffee Break: Bowling a perfect game in 90 seconds

Rainy days and Monday's get me down. Or something like that.

MIGHT AS WELL

If you watch CBS News in the morning, you will here the venerable Charlie Rose say "Here is your world in 90 seconds."

Then there's a bunch of highlights and talking heads in what seems to stretch out a bit more than a minute and a half.

End of the line: Crews set to take down 600-year-old New Jersey tree

BERNARDS, N.J. >> An imposing white oak tree that has watched over a New Jersey community and a church for hundreds of years is about to come down, leaving residents with a sense of loss as they recall the site that's been a go-to location for formal photos, a landmark for driving directions and a remarkable piece of natural history.

GATEWAY TO RIDLEY PARK BOROUGH?

As I recall, a few years ago Borough Council revised Codes and hired a Code Enforcement team so that, as President Berger stated "now we can move on these properties." This meant the Borough has capability to correct "code violations" involving private properties, and Berger intended to make it happen.  That was then; this is now...Check out the accompanying photo.  This is the first thing one sees as one enters the Borough on Swarthmore Ave.How many "Code Violations" can you spot?  The garage…See More

Charade of Nay Sayers at Council Meeting - SORA Revitalization Proposal

Posted by Jared Brennan on February 22, 2017 at 12:00am 3 Comments

Tonight's council meeting turned into a comical charade of "nay sayers" trying to create an atmosphere of fear and misinformation in regards to the proposed revitalization in the business district by Sora , a real estate Investment firm. 

After several past public meetings with SORA, the next logical step was to have the Business Owners meet with SORA to answer questions and concerns.  This took place in Borough Hall on Thursday Feb 16.  The owners wanted a meeting where they…

Verizon Installing Fios - Complaints by Residents

Posted by Jared Brennan on February 10, 2017 at 8:32am 0 Comments

We've been receiving numerous complaints from residents on Hillside Road and Burk Avenue regarding Verizon's installation of Fios to these neighborhoods.  Any rightfully so. 

Seems that Verizon has filed the necessary requests with the Borough of Ridley Park to "open the street" for installation of Fios.  Whenever a utility company wants to get access to the "right of way" along the streets to install their lines or equipment, they must advise and request permission from the…

At a Public Meeting of the Shade Tree Commission (STC), Chairman John Hosbach asked me if I had "bashed the Shade Tree Commission on Ridley Park Online (RPOL)."  John had been prompted by another member of the Commission to ask me that question because that is how he/she interprets some comments I posted on RPOL. 

Since I was challenged in a Public Forum, I will respond in this Public Forum.  I will also reply directly to Chairman…

Politics

Posted by Lynne Leach on January 22, 2017 at 11:18am 1 Comment

Jared's description about Borough Manager and the strong political influences of the Party leader and State rep. also apply to the School Boards in Del. County, including Ridley School District. How do you think that district administrators and teachers get hired, despite "sealed" files from previous employment by other school districts ?

The voting public need to demand transparency AND integrity from borough, school district, county, state, and national representatives - all…
