Ferguson, nation prepare for grand jury decision

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- Crews erected barricades around the building where a grand jury has been considering whether to indict the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, even as a grand jury decision seemed unlikely this weekend.

Tension has been mounting in Ferguson and elsewhere in the St.

The Cosby Conundrum: Shifting attitudes at play in high-profile allegations

Tamra Wade struggled mightily over whether to go to the police more than a decade ago, when, she says, a trusted professor forced himself on her in an empty classroom. Ultimately she couldn't bring herself to do it.

Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry dies at 78

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Divisive and flamboyant, maddening and beloved, Marion Barry outshone every politician in the 40-year history of District of Columbia self-rule. But for many, his legacy was not defined by the accomplishments and failures of his four terms as mayor and long service on the D.

Simmonds makes Jackets blue; Flyers snap skid with 4-2 win

PHILADELPHIA >> Wayne Simmonds was less than thrilled at what he had been producing of late. It had been five games since he last scored a goal, and it probably wasn't a coincidence that the Flyers were on a four-game losing streak as they commenced battle Saturday night with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Anthony makes sure streak hits 13 as Sixers fall again

NEW YORK >> Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points, Amare Stoudemire added 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the New York Knicks dropped the 76ers to 0-13 with a 91-83 victory Saturday night.

Jose Calderon made his season debut for the Knicks, who had lost consecutive games but had an easy time against a team that was every bit as bad as its record for most of the game.

I heard that Council is going to be asked to make a decision that could affect ALL Ridley Park Residents this Monday November 24, 2014.  Incase you are unaware of what is going on in this Police Personnel matter; one of our Police Officers is going to find out how the Council will vote for his future employment in Ridley Park Borough.  The officer was injured in the line of duty when his patrol car was struck by a drunk driver while responding to a call.  The Officer has been on the police…

Missing Person Alert!  Bob Boland showed up at the council meeting tonight with his gang.  We haven't seen Mr. Boland since the debacle of the Billboard that he orchestrated.  Found out why he showed up.  He was receiving numerous phone calls about the massive parking tickets that have been ordered by Clyde, our acting Chief.  ( Is there any coincidence this action started after Bonnie was asked to resign? Retaliation? ) Over the past two weeks residents have been ticketed throughout…

Any last minute gardening should be done today or tomorrow.  Use some of the leaves to protect your perennial bulbs.  Trim the tea roses if stems are way too long.

I planted over 200 bulbs in a 6 x 6 area 2 weeks ago.  Within 2 hrs the squirrel were out digging them up!  And I had soaked them in water and sprayed with a squirrel repellent!  So Lily, my dog, and I trekked up to Home Depot.  Bought some screening and gardening nails and with fingers crossed it seems to have done…
