Media in Two Minutes:
New Book by Media Resident, Dr. Sam Lemon
Media Town Talk had an excellent article about Media resident, Dr. Sam Lemon and his new book "Go Stand On The Rock"
This book eloquently captures
the struggles and achievement of his ancestors dating back to the
1800's. This inspirational story isn't just any book, but a look into
the past of a family that still calls Media home. When people say they are proud of Media, PA, it really starts with great families such as Dr. Lemon's who had such an important impact on our town.
Congratulations, Dr. Lemon!
It's Registration Time for Local Athletics
Be sure to check out the schedules listed for Media Little League and Babe Ruth. For Media Little League, the first day of registration will be on January 19th at the Media Borough Community Center. For Babe Ruth League, you'll have to download a copy of the registration form and drop off at Media Youth Center's snack bar or send to group's location on the form. Here's a link to a previous post that includes dates, website links and other information.
Also, Media Youth Rugby will be having a meeting January 17th, 7pm at Media Borough Hall. A special THANKS to Matt Heavens for providing this information and helping with this cause. I'll post more information about this as it becomes available.
Foxy Brown comes to town
No, not that "Foxy Brown," but the one I saw run down E. 6th Street at 5:20am this morning. I don't think foxes bother cats too much, but probably prefer squirrels, mice and last night leftovers in uncovered trashcans. Bon Appettite
Discarding Christmas Trees
If you live in Media Borough and still have you Christmas tree, it can be left curbside to be picked up by the Media Highway Dept.
Is Media putting Opera on the Map.......or is that the other way around?
Either way, it is great to hear a world class opera production will be coming exclusively to Media, PA. I look forward to attending and think this will be great for the town.
Third Street Bridge - UPDATE
Back in November 2012, Judge Proud, after receiving a contempt of court petition filed against Media Borough, requested that the three parties (Media Boro, BLCC, Delco) work out the differences over Third Street Bridge. In that time, BLCC in good faith submitted an offer to Media Borough Council, which didn't even get addressed. It even included a one-way design option.
Much like the Super Wawa embarrassment, we again see a total lack of leadership by Mayor Bob McMahon and borough council. Councilman Paul Robinson complains about how badly written the original agreement was, but yet when he and council has a opportunity to do something about it, as they've had over the last 45 days, NOTHING gets done.
Have we just wasted another year(17th) and incurred more costs towards the bridge at the hands of the mayor and borough council? To have the audacity to continue to hold this project up, they at least should have defended their position.
