An 'execution' in Glenolden

Heron's Nest - 6 hours 3 min ago
It's hard to imagine the terror that unfolded inside a home in Glenolden Monday night.

Valerie Morrow was all too familiar with the volatile nature of Stephen Rozniakowski. She had obtained a protection from abuse order against him earlier in the day.

But as is too often the case in domestic incidents, it did her little good.

Rozniakowski, with whom she had broken off a relationship, showed up at the Morrow home Monday night wearing a bulletproof vest and packing a gun.

He didn't go there to talk.

Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said Rozniakowski, a cop with a bad history of harassing women, went there to "execute" the Morrow family.

He was only stopped when Valerie Morrow's husband, Thomas, himself a police officer in Morton, returned fire, wounding Rozniakowski. You can read all the details of the horrific incident here.

Earlier in the day, Rozniakowski had resigned his position on the Colwyn police department. He had been on desk duty while awaiting trial in Montgomery County for stalking and harassing another woman. He was due in court for a pre-trial conference.

Rozniakowski now faces first-degree murder and a slew of other charges. Whelan said his office will consider the death penalty in the case.

Actually, the death penalty has already been used.

Stephen Rozniakowksi, a spurned suitor, used it on Valerie Morrow.

Chester Upland's top brass visits 'Live From the Newsroom'

Heron's Nest - 6 hours 21 min ago
Do you have a question you'd like to ask the top brass of the Chester Upland School District?

This is your night.

After surviving an attempt by Gov. Tom Corbett to remove him from his job, Chester Upland receiver Joe Watkins will pay a visit to our live-stream Internet show, 'Live From the Newsroom,' tonight. Joining us will be Chester Upland Superintendent Gregory Shannon.

Watkins was targeted in a surprise move by acting state Education Secretary Carolyn Dumaresq, who filed a petition in Delaware County Court to have Watkins ousted. But Delco Judge Chad Kenney decided Watkins deserves more time to turn things around in the seemingly forever troubled school district.

We'll talk about the reasons why Watkins may have been targeted, why he believes it was the wrong move, and the things he's done to reverse course in Chester Upland.

Shannon will be on hand to talk about the current state of affairs in Chester Upland, and where the district goes from here. Do you have a question you'd like to ask either Watkins or Shannon? Email it to me at editor@delcotimes.com, and I will ask them tomorrow night.

Then tune in to DelcoTimes.com tonight at 7 night as we go live with Joe Watkins and Gregory Shannon. Join the conversation!

How would RGIII look running Chip Kelly's offense?

Heron's Nest - 6 hours 49 min ago
The Eagles just might get a glimpse of their future Saturday when they travel down I-95 for a crucial game against the Redskins.

The Eagles need to keep winning - and hope for a Dallas loss - to have any hope of winning the division and making the playoffs. The odds of making it as a Wild Card team are even longer.

But they might be looking at the ghost of Christmas future across the line of scrimmage.

Robert Griffin III will be back as the starting quarterback for the 'Skins, thanks to a neck injury that has put Colt McCoy on the shelf for the rest of the season.

RGIII, once heralded as the face of the Washington franchise, clearly has fallen out of favor with new coach Jay Gruden. Most people believe he will be playing somewhere else next year.

Could that spot be Philadelphia.

Griffin ran an offense similar to that employed by Chip Kelly when he was a college standout at Baylor. He's mobile, which most people believe is something Kelly desperately wants - and does not really have with Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez - in his QB.

The down side? RGIII has proven to be brittle, reeling from a string of injuries since he's been in Washington. Part of that comes with the exposure that the run-option demands of a signal caller.

But it's still an intriguing option.

It is unlikely that the Eagles will be able to pull off any kind of blockbuster that would put them in position to draft Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, who Kelly also coached at Oregon.

I happen to think that Kelly's franchise quarterback is not on this roster.

He just might be staring at them from across the line of scrimmage on Saturday.

white chocolate cinnamon cookies with oatmeal

Chester County Ramblings - Tue, 2014-12-16 18:11

This is my new recipe for Christmas 2014. The cookies are very cinnamony, chewy, and soft. The white chocolate adds a mellow sweetness and the cinnamon chips enhance the cinnamon flavor of the cookie.

I just took the last batch of these out of the oven. I hope you like them if you try my recipe!

RECIPE:

1 cup of butter softened (2 sticks)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup quick cook oatmeal (plain no flavoring)
2 cups white chocolate baking chips
1 cup cinnamon flavored baking chips (I buy mine from Edwards Freeman in Conshohocken)

Preheat oven to 350°

Cream together until well mixed butter and both sugars in a large bowl. Add eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla, beat until light and fluffy.

Add cinnamon, salt, baking soda.

Mix in 2 cups of all-purpose white flour until mixed well. Stir in oatmeal, followed by white chocolate baking chips, and finally the cinnamon chips.

I like to chill my batter about 30 minutes.

Drop by rounded teaspoons on parchment paper lined baking sheets. I actually like to roll might dough into about 1 inch balls. I place them a couple inches apart on the sheet.

Bake at 350° for 10 to 11 minutes depending on your oven. Do not overbake and please cool these cookies at least five or six minutes before removing from baking sheet to cooling rack to cool completely.

This recipe makes a little over 4 1/2 dozen cookies,

Enjoy !
