Chester County PRESS Dec. 31, 2014 Edition
The clock may be ticking down on 2014, but the wheels of news in southern Chester County are forever in spin, and covered every day by the Chester County PRESS. In our last issue of the year, we go to Oxford, where Maya Angelou's memoir “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” is the subject of controversy in Oxford schools. We sit down with the West Grove Police Chief Michael King, as he looks to create a trusting and transparent relationship between law enforcement and the residents of the Borough. We report on the 2015 budget finalized by Franklin Township, which calls for a tax reduction, and we preview the upcoming retrospective of the artist Jamie Wyeth, which opens soon at the Brandywine River Museum. You'll read all of that and more, in this issue of the Chester County PRESS.
