Ridley Park's Mental Illness is no laughing matter

This is an open letter to all of the recent posters on this website.

After reading this feed...the main thing I see is a LOT of people making fun of mental illness... Do you all think this is okay? Is calling someone "crazy" "insane" or "off their meds" funny to you? You do realize that this site is one of the first ones to come up when people google "Ridley Park" right?  A person comes to this website to see when the farmers market starts and BAM! Name-calling overload. Some people…

Ridley News endorsements?

Mr Maurone,
Is the Ridley News really endorsing Jared Brennan, Sue Murth and Kevin Atwell? As evidenced by this website Jared, Sue and Kevin pay you to produce campaign literature. While endorsing paying advertisers is legal in PA, it is illegal in several states. At the very least it is highly unethical. Jared "Mr. Transparency" Brennan how much did this "endorsement" cost or are you only transparent when it benefits you?

Keeping Ridley Park clean

I had a couple of thoughts after this weekend of lovely weather. 


After your own YARD SALE, please try to go around and take down all the signs you have put up announcing it.  Likewise, if you see a sign on a pole for a yard sale that has already happened, why not rip it down and put it in the trash?


Let's say you are taking a walk.  Why not carry a plastic bag with you and pick up some trash along the way?  I have acquired a pair of long-handled tongs that I…
