Hi Howard! Hmm.. for a mural/painting of that kind at that size one or two people could create something over the course of a few weekends or if working everyday over a week or two I'd say. I'd love to do something like that, of course the image/design and the level of elaborateness would factor in to the overall time ect.. Is there a particular image in mind for the bridge?
Well it goes to show that a council person who truely acted out of hand and was more rude and out bounds and only wanted to argue was just not right and that the point in hand he did not really want to hear it, so now my question would be why even go to council if this is really how things can go, And yes I stood my ground and and was herd but I have also been trying to be HERD for sometime. As for Mr. Berger being there or not that should not be a reason for things not to happen and for someone to be told to shut up. And WOW another council person did have the thoughts to remind council and the one that got out of hand that I do live in Ridley Park and that I do PAY TAXES...and that residents need to be herd and not put thru a WAR ZONE od bashing like the onecouncilmember did. So more or less I can see where he wants to be and thats not with the Residentsof Ridley Park...at the workshop he sure showed what he was like.
As for the business owner yes he was very supportive and I did respect what he said and how he was and as I have said I have nothing against that business or him.
thanks for getting back to me regarding places to stay near to ridley park. I may end up not coming in November due to a previous committment that I had completely forgotten about until today ! However, I may end up coming "home" next July en route to Italy and England ( for the 2012 summer Olympics ) and maybe on the way home to CA since I must change planes in Philly.
Thanks so very much for all of the time you have put into this amazing site!

Whats up with the dump truck on vacant property across from your house. I believe that there is an ordinance against this. Also, looks pretty bad as this is a main road traveled by many coming into RP.
Hi Howard ! There is a really great Veterans Forum tonight @ Ridley Senior High School on Morton Ave. in Folsom PA., 19033 The time is 6:00p.m. to 9:00p.m. I will be there representing Weichert Realtors, to let veterans know about their benifits from the V.A. to buy a house, also about the $8,000 Tax credit they are entitled to.

Hey there, were you aware that borough residents can get free wood at the maintenance building at the lake? We looked at the pile last year and saw it was all soft pine, sycamore, etc. This year the wood is being kept behind a locked fence, but borough residents can come down during the work week (?) to get wood. What is bothering me is there is a Ridley Park employee (don't know if he resides in the borough) who is loading his truck with good firewood and taking it somewhere. I questioned Joe Yorke about this and he has done a good job of avoiding answering all my questions. Such as, is the borough selling firewood, is the employee a resident of RP, is the employee selling the wood for profit, when is the employee splitting the wood and loading his pick-up truck (I see him driving through the borough during the day loaded up). Joe Yorke said they moved the wood because some residents said it was unsightly (like the recycling containers are not). I'm not against anyone getting firewood, but I feel this employee has an unfair advantage. Joe Yorke says the employee splits and takes the wood on his own time and has loaned the borough the use of his log splitter. Ok, but why does he have a key to the fence after hours, but residents cannot access the wood after hours. I am awaiting a reply from Doris Lamb. If you're interested, I'll keep you posted.
