>The tree is an embarrasment. This season is one of kindness, love and charity. A garbage strewn tree does not reflect the season.
And it is inappropriate for the holiday of Christmas or Hannukah or Kwansai…or anything else. I think Ms. Zusy needs to understand beauty and have some common sense in regard to when and HOW to use recycleables. There are so many wonderful things being done with recycleables. But the Ridgewood tree is not one of them. It is a disgrace. Children have to learn how to create something pleasing to the eye and to the heart when using recycleables. Creating is not just moving them from the recycle barrel to the tree!!!
Take the decorations down, NOW, and leave a beautiful lighted tree.
Another shame on Ridgewood. As a Ridgewood resident and taxpayer I stress that our council needs to be voted down and out.
