>No Comments on the Great Debate?

bored with it all said...
Ho hum. A very poor turnout; only 10 people in the audience and most of them were from the League of Women Voters.

As expected, “What should be done with Pease Library?” was one of the 3 prepared League of Women Voters questions. The League really needs to let that issue go and move on to something else. The same question was presented to candidates in 2004; I’ve heard quite enough about Pease Library, thank you.

Also as expected, Mancuso and Pfund both read their answers from carefully prepared scripts; very few candid comments from either.

No startling revelations. One member of the public challenged Papietro on his plan to turn Ridgewood Avenue into a one-way street heading westbound. Other questions from the floor focused on parking and leadership in the public safety departments.

Friction between candidates was non-existent.

I give this Candidates’ Night a 1 star rating out of 5.

>fly on the wall

>The Ridgewood Blog has also been informed by various sources the many people in the Village Hall think it is “NO BIG DEAL” that the Taxpayers were forced to pay $30 thousand for a certain date gone wrong. Our suggestion is that if it is “NO BIG DEAL” simply write a check out of your own account and refund the taxpayers . Thanks we are waiting …….

village%20hall%20flood

I dont want to “rain on anyones parade” but is the Village Hall fixed yet ?

Why does the police parking lot slope toward the building ?

Why was all this money spent with no additional parking?

Did it realy flood because of the river ,thats funny Vets field wasnt flooded but the parking lot was ?

Why wasnt drainage considered since the building is in a flood zone?

Isnt it dangerous that both our first responders (Police and Fire) are headquatered in flood zones ?

How much is going to cost to fix it?

Do we have any recourse with the “architect?”

The RRC Blog rides to my rescue

>https://www.ridgewoodrepublicanclub.org/weblog/index.php

The Ridgewood News, a smaller, less important rag of the leftist North Jersey Media Group, declared war on the Ridgewood Blog (www.theRidgewoodBlog.blogspot.com) today. Dismissing the proprietor of that website and it’s posters as a bunch of anti government grumblers, the Ridgewood News promoted its own version of a blog. The promotion of their own blog underlines the real reason for the attack. The Ridgewood News is losing circulation to the bloggers and ad dollars are very dependent on circulation numbers. And another problem that is worrisome to the Ridgewood News is the fact that the Ridgewood Blog scooped them on a number of issues. The blog uses the input of the entire community instead of a small set of reporters looking for a story (and usually missing the elephant in the room). Having those types of resources is priceless and the paper knows it.The Ridgewood News editorial writer delighted in the fact that the Ridgewood Blog was banned from the computers of village hall. They pointed out that this did not surprise them as the blog used “anonymous” postings from people. Sadly, the paper missed the point again. Anonymous or not, a lot of people are upset with the way the village is being handled. Dismissing the posters as a bunch of anonymous crack pots misses the real story. Oh and by the way, the editorial in the Ridgewood News was unsigned.So the battle is joined. On the one hand is old media, with an ever shrinking stream of revenue and readers on one side, and new media emerging and engaging the public in a way that the news papers could never do. The real issue here is control of information. The Ridgewood News is no longer the only game in town. And if it keeps this attitude up, it won’t be in town much longer.
