In this week's Chester County Press, we share the announcement made this week that longtime Kennett Borough Police Chief Edward Zunino will retire after 40 years on the force ... We share the finding of hundreds of dead fish and other aquatic creatures along the White Clay Creek ... We take you to East Marlborough Township, where Township Manager Jane Laslo has her last meeting ... We profile a local family fighting for approval of a drug that has slowed muscular dystrophy in their two young sons ... From a video series planned for Kennett Square to a new book about Chadds Ford -- and Uncle Irvin, too -- it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
