In this edition of the Chester County Press, we look at the Oxford Area Sewer Authority's controversial 30-percent rate increase, and how it is directed to address short- and long-term issues ... We take you to the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, where educators discussed the district's 10-year plan ... We introduce Lower Oxford Township's first junior supervisor, and we take you around the track at the inaugural Victory Mushroom Cap 13.1 race in Kennett Square ... From high school football to Uncle Irvin, it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
