  • The village must once again teach…

    Junior high school in Chicago in the 1960s at Lewis-Champlin School was even more exciting and interesting than the previous grades had been.
    The classrooms were filled with those kinds of teachers who took an wholistic approach to learning. They weren't just concerned with us students on an academic basis, but they were concerned with the whole of us. We couldn't be low performers or achievers and that be the end of it; neither could we be high performers/achievers and that be the end, also.

  • Happy birthday, my beautiful baby girl

    Today is Mackie's sixth birthday. I am remembering back to the ultrasound picture Cindy brought to me as a gift one February long ago. I am remembering the day Daddy and I hurriedly got ourselves together and ready to go to the hospital early that morning for our long-awaited birthday celebration of our first baby. Our first baby girl, McAllister Grier Furr Price, our beautiful baby girl Mackie. I am remembering Sheldon and I holding her for the very first time as if she were our very own. Oh so gentle, oh so loving, oh she was so beautiful.

  • Stop the whirlwind....of madness

    I was most recently in Winston-Salem, N.C. attending a relative's wife's transitional services. Nice little jump to Winston, having to take a couple of interstates and another highway to get there. The church was not too far from Winston-Salem State University, where a few of our Chester graduates attend. (Very proud of that fact).

  • L.B. Sealy's service earns Honor Flight

    Leuico "L.B." Sealy wasn't sitting in his regular seat with his regular group for breakfast at the Chester Hardee's on Wednesday. He was still among friends, though.
    Sealy was one of two local veterans to fly to Washington D.C. as part of the Honor Flight program, which takes veterans, primarily those that fought during World War II, to see the new World War II Memorial in the nation's capital.

  • Chiseled in stone

    Veterans were acknowledged and thanked and many had their names on the program for Monday's Memorial Day service at the Chester County War Memorial Building. All acknowledged, though, that the day wasn't for them. It was for the men and women whose names are chiseled into headstone and on memorial statues.
    "This is a solemn day set aside in reverence to God and country and those who fell fighting for this country," said State Representative Greg Delleney.

  • Strawberries hit their peak this weekend...by Greg Summers

    Rebecca Whisonant of Chester has been bringing her son, 12-year-old Ryon, to Jordan’s Farm for at least the last 10 springs to pick strawberries.
    However, the two don’t come alone. These days, Ryon’s siblings – Nicholas, 10, Nathaniel, 8, Alex, 6, Annette, 5, Iassac, 3, Amelia, 2, and 16-month-old Dominic – join in for a sticky, sweet time. The gooey juice from a just-picked strawberry was running down the chin of every Whisonant under the age of 13.
