Running stop signs near Ridley Middle School.

Just want to bring this safety issue to the attention of parents that there are people running the stop signs. They aren't driving slow either, doing 25mph or better. RPPD is aware of this. Also PSP have been notified about this.

Tasmania, Australia

Been in Tasmania the last few days seeing some of the interesting sights they have here. Went to Cradle Mountain for the day, got to see the amazing Tasmanian devil.  Quite small little animal, got to watch some younger ones being fed. Very entertaining to see which one is the strongest & meanest one.

Ridley Park's Cancelled July Council Meeting - Notifying residents of cancelling meeting.

Ridley Park's monthly meeting was canceled last night.  There needs to be a better way to give notice to our residents in our borough.  I understand quite a few residents came the borough hall last night to find locked doors & no notice on the door.  I also discovered two of our own council members didn't know the meeting was canceled.   Looking forward to hearing about how this happened at the next council meeting.  I think the council needs to work on this problem.

Olso, Norway -Sweden-Denmark

Was in Norway last week for a tour of the country, really nice place.  Really big traffic jam at rush hour because of the free concert Justin Bieber had.  Also there was very little police because they were on "STRIKE".  Had a really great time.  The sun rose at 4:00 in the morning & would set about 11:00p.m.  Even after the sun set, it still didn't really get dark. Copenhagen, Denmark was also was great.  Got to see the Queen of Denmark leaving the summer palace !

Impoundment Lot- Bright Lights & Noise.

While visiting some residents in the 2 Hundred block of E. Rodgers St. this past week quite a few residents had asked me why they have to put up with the bright lights & noise that goes on after 10:00 p.m.  The lights are really bright & shine into the bedroom windows of these houses.  The residents have also told me about the noise that goes on during the late hours into the early morning.  I asked them if it could of been noise from the Home Depot, & it wasn't coming from the HD. … Continue

Phila. Airport Expansion-More jobs for workers.

Reading the article about the Phila. airport expansion, it touched on a good subject about new jobs coming into the region. It was interesting to see that there would be more people employed by this project. They are talking about 4,000 jobs being created. With unemployment at 9.5% in PA., I would think this would help our whole economy in this area. I have watched people from the Phila. region go to college and after graduating they leave the area because there are few jobs in this area.…

Veterans Day November 11,2010

I would like to thank all the veterans for what they have done for our country. I am also a veteran, having served overseas. Nobody gave us us this title veteran, it has to be earned. If you know someone that is a veteran, tell them thank-you. For our surviving World War 2 veterans this gesture is what they want to hear today.
