Aqua still interested in Chester Water Authority

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-07-21 06:30
Remember a couple of months ago when behemoth local water company Aqua America sets its sights on the Chester Water Authority.

At that time the Chester Water Authority board rejected the offer.

But the popular thought was that they would not be going away.

They were right.

Aqua continues to be interested in the firm, but so far Chester Water Authority continues to resist.

You can read the latest here.

I have a person stake in this story. Sort of.

Take a close look at the bottled water on the tables during yesterday's meeting of the Chester Water Authority Board at Neumann University.

Yes, that sparkling water is the pride of the Octoraro Reservoir. I am guessing most people in Delaware County don't know that. They don't realize that when they turn on their spigots that beautiful water that flows out comes from right outside my home town of Oxford, Pa. I've done a lot of things in that water, including being chased out of it on any number of occasions.

Come to think of it, today would be a great day to cool off while fishing and swimming in the water I spent a lot of time in back in my youth.

I feel a sick day coming on.

One more salute to Officer Chris Dorman

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-07-21 06:19
Folcroft Officer Chris Dorman was back in uniform yesterday.

But he wasn't on patrol.

He was in a Delaware County courtroom to see justice delivered to the man who shot him in the face.

He wasn't alone.

We talk about Dorman on our editorial page.

And if you're interested in the sentence meted out to the man who shot him seven times and then fired at other officers, you can find that here.

It's Fry-Day!

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-07-21 06:04
Welcome to Fry-Day!

I can remember actually using that headline on the front page of the paper back in the day.

One thing you can usually count on when we get into one of these kinds of heat waves.

You know it's going to end with a bang.

We're almost at 80 already before 6 a.m., and later today we'll be back in the broiler with a high 95.

We are under an excessive heat warning from the National Weather Service until 8 p.m.

The actual real-feel temperature this after will soar well over 100 degrees.

You have to think that at some point we are going to get hit with some nasty thunderstorms to break up all this heat. But right now it looks like we'll stay in the soup through the weekend.

You can get the full forecast here.

Me? I'll be smiling. I love this weather.
