Reader explains a definition of an ombudsman: “someone whose job is to deal with complaints that people make about an organization or particular type of business”

3 amigos in action Ridgewood NJ

Hahaha, here is a definition of an ombudsman: “someone whose job is to deal with complaints that people make about an organization or particular type of business” Oh my god, so Paul Aronsohn is taking complaints and dealing with them, what the heck? He is the most insensitive, nasty man ever, remember how he was for our 8 years of hell when he was on the council, sniping at people, writing nasty emails, screaming at Bernadette Walsh and Tom Riche, then at Susan, remember how he tried to kill Mike Sedon’s candidacy by contacting his employer, oh man, the list goes on and on. What the heck was Murphy thinking putting THIS man in charge of helping anyone, most especially those with disabilities.

Ridgewood NJ, The Ridgewood Health Department reminds you that influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Over a period of 31 seasons between 1976 and 2007 the CDC states that in the United States range from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. During recent flu seasons, between 80% and 90% of flu related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older. “Flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May. During this time, flu viruses are circulating at higher levels in the U.S. population. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community.

Readers Debate Crime Wave at Bergen County Wild Duck Pond in Ridgewood

file photo by Boyd Loving

I am SHOCKED. This is depressing. I never knew this can happen in Ridgewood. These things do not happen in the Bronx in the middle of the day let alone a small, cozy town in Bergen County. If this has been happening on a regular basis why is no one arrested? Why can’t there be hidden cameras in these places? If there is no punishment things will get worse.
And I am sorry but continually advising people to not leave stuff in their cars is insulting. It is suggesting we have to accept crime as a normal thing and accept that we have no power over criminals.
