• GUEST EDITORIAL: United we stand...by Sheriff Max Dorsey

    September 11, 2019.

    Today, we remember those who perished on September 11, 2001. We honor their lives and will never forget their legacy. We particularly pay tribute to our valiant first responders – law enforcement officers, firefighters, and emergency medical workers who sacrificed their lives in service to others. Their bravery will be memorialized for all posterity.

    When it comes to athletics, the rivalry between Great Falls and Lewisville could not be more fierce.

    “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech.”

    That is a portion of the first amendment to the United States Constitution. It is a bedrock principle of any free society and it establishes that government has no authority to police your words and thoughts. It is also one of the most misunderstood rights that all Americans enjoy.

  • Welcome to Chester

    In the past, we’ve used this spot in the newspaper to complain about the lack of candidate attention Chester County has received in recent presidential election cycles. It only seems fair then to thank a candidate for planning a visit here today.

  • "In the public interest"

    What is in “the public interest?” If elected officials are not acting in your best interest or are committing crimes, is that in the public interest? If your tax dollars are being misspent, is that in the public interest?
