Baseball: Broomall-Newtown scores 10 in the first to roll to take opener

If the Broomall-Newtown 13-year-olds were looking to get off to a fast start in the Mid-Atlantic Regional tournament, they couldn't have hoped for a much better opening salvo than Thursday.

The Broomall-Newtown club jumped all over Prince George County (Md.) with a 10-spot in the first inning, waltzing to a 13-1 win in five innings in the first game of pool play in Atlantic Shore, N.

Softball: Cullen, Dolly, Palmerio team up to lead Murray's to championship

Murray's Bar & Grille cooked up a winning combination Thursday night, blending solid pitching, timely hitting and stellar defense into a 7-5 victory over Dolan's for the Suburban Women's Slow Pitch B Division softball title.

The deciding game of the best-of-3 series turned in Murray's favor thanks to Kelly Ann Cullen's performance in the circle, a two-run double by Eilleen Dolly and an all-around strong game by Jen Palmerio - who went 2-for-2, scored once, drove in a run and flashed some serious leather at second base.

Covanta spells out plan for incinerator

CHESTER - The Chester Environmental Justice organization met Thursday night to discuss residents' concerns with a land development proposal made by Covanta, which operates a trash incinerator on Highland Avenue.

Borough Street Re-Paving Question

Posted by Casey on July 26, 2014 at 11:52pm 9 Comments

Hello everyone! I am a new member to this site and this is my first post. I just recently realized it even existed. I am not new to RP, however. I've lived here my entire life. I currently live in the 3rd precinct by the ABC field. I've lived by the lake before that.

My question is in regards to the re-pavement of streets that were torn up to lay new piping. Our streets between Moore's Lake and the ABC field were amongst the first torn up to lay new Aqua pipe over a year ago.…


Hooray for See-Click-Fix

Posted by Jim Butt on July 20, 2014 at 6:13pm 2 Comments

I'm really impressed with this tool. It's a terrific way to collect information on keeping RP looking sharp and sustaining its great curb appeal. I doubt most communities have such a resource. 

Is there a way to see if issues are being dispositioned? I understand that not everything can be fixed immediately.

Public Service issues - Borough Hall and Ridley Park's Police Chief

Posted by TRUE PARKER on June 26, 2014 at 10:30am 39 Comments

Someone please tell me why we have a borough manager.  I have left several phone messages and not one gets returned.  I have stopped in Borough Hall only to find that the borough manager arrives sometime after 11:00 am.  I have gone to Borough Hall to find the manager is out to lunch at 2:00 pm.  I returned to borough hall to find that she has not returned from lunch and its 4:30.   

Can someone tell me what we pay this person and why that position is even necessary if it is…
