  1. Heard some great news yesterday that happened in the village, I’m sure there’s more great news to come. Wow, holy Molly.

  2. What was the “good news” 6:26? How about sharing.

  3. Last night Mayor Knudsen gave a shout-out to Facebook Pages It Takes a Ridgewood Village and Ridgewood Moms and Dads With Free Speech….and also to THE RIDGEWOOD BLOG! She acknowledged their role in getting neighbors to help neighbors during the recent storm, in getting the word out about downed trees and power lines, about those who were without power, etc.

    Let’s hear it for social media.

    How do you like THAT Jeff Voigt???

  4. Hahaha, Jeff Voigt, hates social media but trolls it constantly.

  5. Pave the village streets and all might be forgiven …shit can that hudson street mega garage mistake too .

  6. Well 7,32 many of us are very happy. Why well up top made a chess move that had to be done, and done well . Thank god it was done , let’s leave it a that for now.
    All we can say is thank you.

  7. Boy am I confused. What was the good news/chess move?

  8. I believe they are talking about the removal of the superintendent of the department of public works. Look at the new post on the this blog about sexual harassment. The village does not condone that.
