08/16/2017 08:36AM ● Published by J. Chambless

In this week's edition of the Chester County Press, we look at how state regulations for immunizing students have put some local parents in a bind ... We announce that a stop sign will be added to an intersection in Franklin Township where Amish families are living and working ... We visit Oxford, where Borough Council takes a big step toward authorizing the construction of a parking garage ... We meet a local author who has written a book about her remarkable mother, as well as a young dancer who is fulfilling her dream of being a ballerina ... All this, and Uncle Irvin, too, in this week's Chester County Press.
