Running for Office in Ridley Park, dates to remember

"What comes around, goes around" applies to Ridley Park's would-be politicians this month as candidates for Ridley Park's Borough Council seats make their way to the faithful for signatures on their nomination petitions.  February 17 was the first day to circulate and file nomination petitions before March 10.  Each candidate is required to have a minimum or 10 "valid signatures." Artists in the trade tell me each candidate aims for 30 because protests over signatures in Ridley Park's are…

Being a Responsible Ridley Park Citizen

By these actions, we are making…

Do any of you realize that you are NO better than the "cyber bullies" or "bullies" that attack your children or our society in that matter on social medias or in person?  What makes you people, excuse me, “adults” any better than them? You all haven't…

Plummeting temperature brings "black ice" travel warning

The plummeting temperature through the rest of this evening (Feb 2, 2015) will make for icy traveling and slippery walking conditions on untreated highways and sidewalks after dark.  Wet roadways, wet sidewalks, and wet car door locks will freeze tonight as temperatures plunge into the upper 20's.  Accelerating the plunge in the temperature are high winds from the Northwest at 15 to 25 mph with gusts to over 45 mph to be expected.

Be alert for frozen wet surfaces, or "black ice"…
