“The county and local roads are only for gladiators and chariots.

Franklin Avenue was bombed out well before the faulty towers train side housing construction ..the roadway was crap before the trench cutting and utility chop and hot spackle treatment rather than a professional road repair so it is like demolition from town side franklin avenue to from the train station side of town . Shame..we deserve better no excuses .we are a broken town .local and county roads are beyond neglect and are dangerous to drivers ,pedestrians and bicyclists.ALL FACTS”

“Mr. Kim spends a lot of time documenting whatever he presents. Wish the Council, School board, and Library had enough sense to do the same. They seem to just pull abstract ideas out of the air and then stick to them as if they were the Gospel truth–circular stairway? Unneeded garage located in an area where it will be only used by commuters and the owners of the new condos which come with no way nearly adequate parking? The above mentioned groups can’t stand him as he consistently pulls the curtain back to tell us what “the wizards of Oz” are REALLY doing!”

Ridgewood NJ, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) relies upon the cooperation of local law enforcement officials to expeditiously remove dangerous criminals from our communities.

ICE commends our local law enforcement colleagues who work to minimize that risk by cooperating with ICE to apprehend criminal aliens at the time of their release from local custody.
