Chester County PRESS Jan. 21, 2015 Edition

To commemorate the national holiday, we saw southern Chester County put its hands to work on Jan. 19, as hundreds of volunteers gave their time and energy to the Martin Luther King, Jr. CommUNITY Day of Sharing and food drive. We stopped by the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford to welcome Jamie Wyeth to a 60-year retrospective of his work that runs through April. We heard public outcry over the Lower Oxford Board of Supervisors' decision to greenlight the construction of an electronic billboard on Route 1. We also continued our coverage of the Save Our Water Committee's fight to prevent Artesian Water Pennsylvania, Inc. from being given the authority to activate a well in Landenberg. Read these stories and more in your Jan. 21 edition of the Chester County PRESS!
