03/18/2015 10:00AM ● Published by J. Chambless

In this week's Chester County Press, we alert the community about the search for Lauryn Thompson, a 16-year-old from Oxford Borough who ran away from home on March 9 and was last seen in the area of Honey Brook and West Brandywine Township at approximately 4 a.m. ... We bring you the latest from the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District's negotiations between the administration and teachers over a three-year contract ... We bring you to New Garden Township as an award is given to Gerald Davis, past police chief for New Garden Township, as well as to the announcement of supervisor Betty Gordon's resignation on April 1 ... We also take you to the Lincoln University celebration of the life of World War II hero Waverly Woodson, Jr., whose exploits at D-Day saved hundreds of lives at Normandy Beach ...
All of this and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's edition of the Chester County Press.
