  1. I have tried to get a post related to the school and now I can. How is it that, Ridgewood always gets a rise in my taxes due to the school;s, when Glen Rock,( which is higer rated than Ridgewood)is able to have 2 years in a row with no increase in taxes for their residents?? Is there something wrong with this picture??

  2. With the mantra of ” Its for the kids” the sky is the limit. Between the BOED and The three amigos on the Village Council the residents are TOAST. It just time to get out of town.
    This isn’t about the headline but I don’t know how to post anything. My conceren is. why is it that Ridgewood always gets a tax inrease due to the school? Ridgewood used to be thebest, but no more. How does Glen Rock, which is higer rated able to have no

  3. This problem does not belong to the school. It is social media and a community problem. Young girls did something that they regret and their error will live on through the internet.

    This is an issue of “education” maybe through health classes – much like sex education. It is also a family problem. The girls are someone’s young children and do not deserve to be embarrassed anymore. We need to teach our children right from wrong and when they make a mistake they need to be forgiven.

  4. There is no right and wrong.

    That is what is taught.

    No problem here… move along.

    1. Do you think that someone needs to be punished?

  5. I think this is a prime example of laws not keeping up with technology. Ten years ago this wasn’t a problem because the technology wasn’t really used in such a way. In 2004, I was a Junior at R.H.S. and I don’t remember anyone having camera phones. The laws used to prosecute child pornography where written under the assumption that those who would capture and distribute images of “children” would not legally be children themselves.

    1. Sadly, this passes for critical thinking of today’s young adults…

      1. And your comment did not add anything to the topic. Stop judging people.

        1. Yes.
          Let’s not judge people.
          There is no right and no wrong.

          You are validating my statement.

          BTW and for the record…
          Your comment did not add anything to the topic and was judgmental of me.

          Another example of stellar critical thinking.
