What is the problem. We can’t even get Porta John’s cleaned out on Maple field. Forget about the lighting. You can’t make this poop up. Well last year the Porta John was over flowing with a duty. Who the hell is in charge.

Reader claims , “the indifference of residents that is killing this town”

VOTE_theridgewoodblog

It is the indifference of residents that is killing this town. Spring break or no spring break, those who are interested to vote would have found a way to do it. People who move here anew just do not care to get involved in local issues. They come mainly from metropolitan area and have the typical indifferent mindset. They are under the false impression that everything is prefect in this place they chose to live especially the schools. Half the village has no idea what high density housing is and how the place is being transformed into a mini city or how the RHS is approaching 2000 students and is the size of a small college.
Developers and narrow minded local politicians love this kind of place where they can easily make $$$ without any major trouble.

Gonzalez signed a non disclosure agreement in early 2012, under the belief he would be “transported into heaven during the apocalypse” later that year, and “would no longer be living in a human body on earth,” according to a Superior Court lawsuit.
