Reader says ,” this place is gonna look like Hackensack”

Sealfons-rendering

” It’s amazing how so many individuals are so arrogant. How they think they can just walk off the sidewalk into a road without looking how stupid can you be. You got to be the biggest Dummy too do that. That’s for the walkers. For the drivers speed limit should be changed in the CBD. It should be 15 mph. And the damn New Jersey transit buses should not utilize Ridgewood Avenue at all. Let them Use Franklin Ave., Maple Avenue, maybe move the bus station This is not going to work when all these apartment buildings are done we are just too congested. If you think people are getting hit now you just wait and see you have buildings being built right on top of the road on Broad Street Chestnut St., Franklin Avenue and then Maple and Ridgewood Avenue. This place is gonna look like Hackensack. “

Reader calls , “These pathetic little groups of usually 12/20 people continue (as evidenced here ) to broadcast their narrative of anything “Trump negative “ and as such the fake news is more than happy to oblige”

“These pathetic little groups of usually 12/20 people continue (as evidenced here ) to broadcast their narrative of anything “Trump negative “ and as such the fake news is more than happy to oblige. The only thing that gets accomplished here is that these far left emotionally disturbed fruit cakes continue to widen the divide within their own party and are only making it that much easier for Trump in 2020. This is how stupid these people are thinking that impeachment is actually going to happen regardless of what their own party bosses are trying to tell them….It’s not going to happen. Get a grip on reality”

Ridgewood NJ, a three judge appellate court panel has affirmed the 2017 ruling in favor of the three municipalities in their suit against Ridgewood Water for excessive rate hikes during the 2010 -2012 time period .

It is however very unclear if rate payers will receive any relief . The appellate court confirmed the factual findings made by the original judge Perez-Friscia stating they were supported by substantial credible evidence.

“Please feel free to drive on over there during the night and take these people to your home for food and shelter. Of course you won’t. It’s something “we” should do. For someone who is retired, I find it remarkable you’ve made it so far and haven’t figured out life’s issues. Yes, there will always be people who fall through the cracks and if we lived in a perfect world, where everyone did their best, was honest, and tried their hardest, we probably could solve all these problems. If Ridgewood started a program to help these people, do you have any idea just how many more would flock here knowing that there’s free stuff to be had? Sorry buddy, but life is a little competitive and it’s that way for a good reason. White privilege guilt is already becoming way too much of a thing with Liberals.”
