Bergen Record mistake: no safety grant for Ridgewood
You may have seen the article in the Bergen Record last week -- saying that Ridgewood and Fair Lawn would be sharing a $100,000 grant for school safety. Well, that was a mistake. It's RIDGEFIELD that got the grant -- which is intended for things like metal detectors, locks and security lighting. I thought it was odd when I first read about the grant (do we need metal detectors?)...and no one at the District knew anything about it. Turns out, reporting mistake.
Am I the only one who thinks the Record is not the paper it used to be?
I served on the Ridgewood Board of Education 2008-2011, and I continue to blog on education issues in Ridgewood, the state of New Jersey and the nation. I've worked in direct marketing creative for 20+ years, creating and writing catalogs, websites, corporate marketing, emails, white papers, and more. I live in Ridgewood, NJ (since 1997), married with two children (one in college and one at RHS).
