• A compromise

    This is an odd thing to say this close to Election Day, when our country seems its most divided and least inclined to find common ground, but we were recently part of a compromise that we believe will be very beneficial.

  • Planning for growth

    There is an old adage that if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. With that in mind, we are very encouraged by some actions we’ve seen taken recently by Chester County Council.

  • EDITORIAL: SERVE (with corrections noted)

    Editor’s Note: An incorrect version of this editorial ran in print in our Wednesday, Oct. 10 edition. This is the complete and corrected version that should have run.


    With midterm elections on the horizon, there is a lot of talk about people registering to vote and becoming more involved in the political process. Certainly that is important, but there is a way people can make an even greater impact and be even more involved in the process.

  • Working for free

    We’ve heard before that good help is hard to find. Free help is even harder to find and turning that down seems like a bad idea.

  • We need your voice

    From council chambers to courtrooms, ball field to board rooms, we try as best we can to keep you informed on what is happening in your county and what government is doing on your behalf. Our job is to be your eyes and ears, but with one recent development, we hope that you might be willing to be our voice.

  • Clearly, freedom isn't free

    We don’t know who coined the phrase “freedom isn’t free” but they were more right than they probably even realized.

  • Do the (side) hustle

    It used to be called “moonlighting” but it’s now commonly referred to as a “side hustle.” Basically, it is a second job or alternate source of income that a person uses to supplement what they make at their regular job. The practice became a topic of much conversation in Chester County last week.

  • A free consultation

    There are a lot of service-driven businesses that tout the fact that they offer customers “free consultation.” You may or not actually end up paying for it in the long run, but the idea there is that they review your individual case or circumstances, apprise you of how they will proceed on your behalf if they are willing to take you on as a client and then begin to charge you once they are actively working for you.

  • Totally free
  • By the book

    When there is any question about how matters should be handled, when there is uncertainty about how any matter should proceed, we think the best option is to follow applicable rules and laws. Doing things by the book makes for the smoothest, most efficient path forward.
