  • Chester needs a teen center

    To the Editor:
    Having read over the county government's wish list and how they plan on spending $15 million in bond money I felt I should write this. The government is wanting to spend millions on ballfields and constructing and installing lighting on existing ballfields.

  • Chester needs a new high school

    To the Editor:
    Today while reading your article on the sales tax wish list, as a citizen of Chester County, I don't see a problem with paying the penny tax. I do, however, mind about how it is to be used.
    Streetscaping $65,000, refurbish city Activity Center $125,000, renovation of parks $30,000. Are they used that much to spend that much money to renovate?

  • Two important days

    Memorial Day was Monday, May 26. The primary election will be held June 10. If there were no day to honor the fallen...those men and women who fought and died giving us the right to vote, there would be no need for election day. Dates and times of these two events are, or should be, very important to us all.  Most people, I believe, depend on the news media to tell us the when and where.
