Patti Rodgers Morrisette Fundraiser 7/28

Penncrest Heads to Canada for North American Envirothon Competition.



It won't be hot enough to fry an egg, we tried that, but it'll be plenty hot this weekend.

It won't be hot enough to fry an egg, we tried that, but it'll be plenty hot this weekend.  5 years ago to the day we had temperatures here in Media that reached 107 degrees.  I don't remember it being that hot since, but the heat back then did make everyone crazy enough to take a look at the "solar special" hosted by the Plumstead Inn.  Yeah, I admit, I thought it would at least fry an egg.

Though a typical hot Summer day in July remains the same, things in Media sure haven't.  With the closing of the Plumstead this year, I'll doubt we'll ever see another "solar special".  The community spirit and small town fun these types of places provided seems to have been lost on the ongoing quest of urbanization.

What really is the objective of Media's Speed Radar Display?

The mystery around what the borough intends to do to prevent speeding down Media streets has taken another turn.  Last week there was a speed display radar on 5th St. (Councilman Robinson's street),  which has since been removed and relocated to North Jackson Street by 7th Street.

Is the intent just to move this display around to individual streets?  What's really the point of that since the speeding just returns after a few days to the street the display was formerly on.  In fact, where's the explanation of this effort and why isn't it posted to let people know what's going on? Who gets to decided where the display goes?

Is this really the solution residents on 5th and 6th streets petitioned for regarding speeding?  Or is it, "Lets just hope residents see we attempted something, knowing that it does nothing to address the problem  maybe they'll just stop complaining."
