• A positive solution

    I'm tired of negative campaigning. That's why I'm voting for Mike Fanning to be our next senator in Tuesday's run off election.
    Mike has run a positive campaign unlike our current senator who should be ashamed of himself.
    Our senator spends more time criticizing Mike than he does telling us what he's going to do for our struggling community. We don't need someone in office who has that kind of time to waste.
    Mike Fanning is positive, he has energy, and he has shown his dedication to Chester County.

  • 18-0

    18 to 0 is not the score of latest sports blowout. Rather, it is the blowout gap in experience between State Senate candidates Coleman and Fanning.

  • Vote for experience
  • Proven results

    Each election cycle some candidate seems to always clamor for change and, if elected, he promises to change Columbia or where ever. This change agent also always claims to be an outsider and his lack of experience in the system is touted as a great attribute. It seems politics is the only job in which a lack of experience is lauded as a positive. However, I have never heard of anyone in need of a plumber who hired the guy who says he has never fixed a water pipe. Rhetoric is fun to listen to and excites folks, but it is results that matter.

  • Taxpayer money being misused

    To the Editor:
    The shenanigans that go on in this county would be laughable if they weren't so sad. The powers that be spend money as if there is a never-ending supply of it.
    The former county supervisor and the new sheriff engaged in a needless dispute that ended up in court over the 911 office. The taxpayers paid the county supervisor's legal fees. The taxpayers also paid for the truck that was evidently gifted to the former sheriff.

  • Offended by Civil War Monument

    It offends me to go to downtown Chester to see a monument erected for traitors of this USA and to possibly have my tax money help with it's upkeep. I may not pay my taxes. I'm going to start a petition to make people aware of this racist, murdering symbol. Someone needs to make the Confederacy know they lost the war. If I can put slavery behind, they should accept the fact that the Confederacy was wrong...Traitors,murderers, losers against GOD. They  
    can say what they want but Truth IS True.

  • School board not doing a good job

    To the Editor:
    I do not understand every reason that the newest school administrator had for leaving, but I have heard that he had some issues with the school board.
    I would like to say that the school board needs to do their job and let the administrator do theirs. Due to the past mistakes of the board, I am not sure they are doing their's well.

  • Tennis courts to be restored

    To the Editor:
    This letter is written to thank Mrs. Joan Guyton and the Herbert and Anna Lutz Foundation for the generous grant given to the City of Chester to restore the tennis courts at Wylie Park.
    This grant will make it possible for the Chester tennis team, of which I am a member, to play our matches at Wylie Park. Last year, we were forced to play all of our matches on the road since we did not have five courts which were playable.

  • Lewis Fire Tanker 621

    To the Editor:
    Over the past several years, Lewis Volunteer Fire Department has been building a new 3,000-gallon tanker to serve the Lewis area and fire suppression support for Chester County.
    The tanker is now in its final stage of completion. The Herbert and Anna Lutz Foundation announced this week that Lewis VFD will be receiving a grant to go toward the completion of this project.

  • Friends of the Animals helps whenever possible

    To the Editor:
    I started Chester Friends of the Animals nearly 17 years ago with the help of many other friends who have come and gone over the years but had a genuine interest in trying to put an end to the overpopulation of dogs and cats in Chester County.
    Working with local veterinarians, they agreed to do spay or neuter procedures at a reduced cost to help reduce the number of animals being taken to our local shelter due to overpopulation and unwanted litters.
