Uncle Irvin: Gettin' old, gettin' sick

07/19/2016 01:02PM ● By Richard Gaw
Uncle Irvin was recently discharged from Chester County Hospital after a week of recovering from various illnesses, and is not ready to resume the rigors of a weekly column. There will be weeks that no column will appear, and at most they will be sporadic until I get up to speed.
It is interesting to point out that some London Grove Township citizens are clamoring for more police protection. Even though the Avondale State Police Barracks are in the township, the response time is too long to be relevant.
Uncle Irvin warned of the need for local police protection for London Grove, and advocated for a regional force, which London Grove supervisors dropped. Those supervisors are one of the worst boards in southern Chester County, and are more enamored of losing money on the public-owned golf course than they are in public safety.
David Connors, although he is not chairman, is one of the worst supervisors ever, and has been a real detriment to progress in London Grove for years.

(Uncle Irvin's column is his opinion only, and is not a news story.)
