As the calendar turns from January to February, the Chester County PRESS turns with it, covering the news of your towns, your schools and the issues most important to life in southern Chester County. In the on-going controversy surrounding the planned activation of a well in New Garden Township, we report on Sen. Andy Dinniman's criticism of Artesian Water Resources' application process ... We take you to the East Marlborough supervisors' meeting; there, they decided to sidestep the controversial electronic billboard issue ... We introduce you to Scott Steele, a local historian who is eager to share his collection of West Grove historical memorabilia ... All of that and a new Jamie Wyeth gallery show, high school sports coverage, Uncle Irvin and much more, in this week's edition of the Chester County PRESS.

New Year, new style for the Chester County PRESS! Scroll all the way to the bottom to read our full, current issue right from this page!
