The race is on in the 7th

Heron's Nest - Tue, 2017-04-11 06:12
Well, that didn't take long.

Two Democrats yesterday announced their intention to take on incumbent Delaware County Congressman Pat Meehan, R-7.

And both made it clear who they were running against: Donald Trump and his policies.

Dan Muroff is an attorney and the former board president of the anti-gun violence group CeaseFirePa.

Molly Sheehan is a bioengineer and medical researcher.

Muroff is not a stanger to local politics. He entered the Democratic Primary in the 2nd Congressional District in 2016. He came in a distant fourth, behind the evential winner and the troubled Chaka Fattah, who was awaiting trial on corruption charges.

Whoever wins the Dem nomination will face an uphill fight against Meehan. The 7th District, once considered a tossup district, is now solidly Republican, thanks to the magic of redistricting. It now includes most of Delaware County, as well as a bizarre jigsaw shape that touches on four other suburban counties.

Century Marks

Heron's Nest - Tue, 2017-04-11 05:52
Even after 100 years, some things don't change.

We still live in dangerous times. A century ago, America under President Woodrow Wilson was reticent about engaging in foreign entanglements. Then we plunged into World War I, ostensibly "the war to end all wars."

Didn't quite work out that way. A hundreds years later, we still find ourselves juggling crises on a world stage, even as many Americans look to pull back from our role as the "world's policeman."

This weekend two events took place in Delaware County to mark the historic events that took place 100 years ago.

In Media, they gathered to note the entry of America into World War I. And in Eddystone, they took the time to remember one of the borough's darkest days, and honor those lost in the great Eddystone Ammunitions Co. blast. More than 130 people lost their lives in the disaster. The remains of many of the victims were never recovered.

But that did not stop many from traveling to their common grave in Chester Rural Cemetery to remember the lessons of the past.

Spring fever arrives

Heron's Nest - Tue, 2017-04-11 05:30
Back when I was a kid in school, an 80 was nothing to write home about.

Of course, it helps if you were a product of parochial elementary schools, where we awaited with trepidation those numerical grades, with a 95 being high praise, an 80 being about a B, 70 a C, and below that - well, we don't really like to talk about that.

More then a few decades later, 80 takes on a whole new meaning.

Yes, we actually hit 80 degrees yesterday, on April 10. That was the official recording at the airport. Raise your hand if you think of George Carlin every time someone mentions the temperature at the airport. (Ask your parents, kids!). We apparently hit 80 just after 4 p.m. yesterday. Unfortunately, by the time I got home just before 7, some clouds had dimmed the sun and there was a touch of chill in the air. I had to settle for standing out on the deck, dreaming of dripping hot, humid summer nights.

Today looks to be even better, as we threaten records set back in 1887. The forecasters tell us we could threaten the mark of 84 degrees. Which means that we could be facing a serious case of spring fever.

You can get the full forecast here.Now where did I put those golf clubs?
