Tragedy for Jimmy John's: Bruce Oas, their 'Old Buddy,' is not coming back

Bruce Oas started working at Jimmy John's at the age of 16. He began asking for a job years before, but the landmark restaurant's staff, and his mother, told him he had to wait.

Once he had the job, though, he became a near immovable fixture behind the counter of Route 202's famous "pipin hot sandwiches" shop.

I recently saw a rerun of one of our town meetings. I was so angry. Not only did we waste time saying how the council stated they wanted to save time, and where they are cutting issues at meetings. We spent the next several people discussing the same things and pointing fingers.

I am sorry if everyone is not happy. Ok. Now let's move forward. I want everyone to ask one simple question to themselves and then answer it. WHAT OR WHY DID YOU MOVE TO RIDLEY PARK????, WHAT MADE YOU…

Fountain at the Lake in Ridley Park

Doesn't the fountain look beautiful sitting next to the storage building at the lake.  The $40,000.00 Tax Payers Money Fountain that was left in the lake for two consecutive years ( Including two winter seasons ).  Bob Berger and Paul Matus told all of us at Council meetings that the fountain COULD stay in the water over winter.  The Borough Engineer, echoed this ridiculous notion, by saying the manufacture stated that leaving it in the lake over winter was an option.  Run it at full speed (…
