Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Alex Charlton for a Corner Table conversation. Alex is the President of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce and quite capably explained to me the many benefits the Chamber provides to local businesses. But it doesn't stop there. The entire community in Delaware County wins as a result of the Chamber's work through their membership, advocacy and support of their businesses and the families of those who work for them.

Yohn sees no difference between feeding the homeless outside at City Hall or outside in city parks along the Parkway, or that it is better or any more dignified on the concrete compared to the grass. He will be extending his temporary injunction against the enforcement of Mayor Nutter's city law banning outdoor feeding of groups larger than three for at least a year. This should give the city and various religious and secular groups plenty of time to come up with a... Read More

Although not planned, Sheen gave a speech which ended in a demeaning insult of Guns N' Roses partner Axl Rose. Sheen said, "You know, it’s quite fitting, I think, that Slash is getting a star on the very street that Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on." Slash did not protest this insult but instead, gave a little chuckle at the remark. Sheen wrapped it up by saying, "This star is going to be... Read More

The open air of Fairmount Park was filled with the sounds of 80s rockers Tesla and Scorpions last night. Tesla took the stage around 7:45 with the energy and intensity they always bring to the stage.

As Tesla wrapped up the set, they thanked the Scorpions for inviting them to open and be on the tour.Read More
