Toward Safer Rail Tank Cars

Here's an article that should get some folks attention.  The CSX line along our borough line uses these older rail cars and they remain a hazard until a new design is developed and tested.  CSX appears to be opposed to the upgrades.

String of Officer Suicides Rattles DelCo's Police

In the aftermath of a third Delaware County police officer suicide in less than 4 weeks, RPOL reminds our members how important it can be to know our Ridley Park's police officers, to talk with them, and to tell them how much we appreciate their protection in our town; you might just make a friend.

Political Advertising in the US Mail - Dirty Politics

In case you didn't know, I am a life long Republican voter who is so disgusted with the TRASH that is starting to come in the US mail to my home on a weekly basis.  The political advertisements making statements and accusations about candidates.  One in particular has me scratching my head.  Tom McGariggle's advertisement showed up the other day and on one side it has Tom in a suit and tie and color picture stating that he saved refinery jobs.  How did Tom help save the jobs?  Tell me what…
