Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
We’re attuned to hearing stories about polluted water, land, and air when someone sounds the alarm about visible pollution we can see with our naked eyes.

Insidious pollutants and unseen…Continue

We received a letter in the mail yesterday from who appeared to the Borough of Ridley Park. The envelope and the letterhead say "Borough of Ridley Park," and the letter inside is signed by Ridley Park Mayor Hank Eberle.
What shocked me is this letter is a solicitation for services from the "Services Line Warranties of America." I'm writing to ask if any other Ridley Park resident thinks it's a bit strange for the Mayor's endorsement on Borough Letterhead for outside services…Continue
It's 9/11 today and I know exactly where I was this time 14 years ago, who was with me, and exactly what I was doing. I remember my wife Debbie phoning me from work and telling me to turn on the TV. I'll never forget what I saw on live on television that day. I'm also old enough to have the same memories of JFK's assassination.
If anyone knew of the unfolding's on 9/11/2001, I imagine they would have planned more for their absence, hugged and kissed their kids and family…Continue

"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…Continue
