Greetings, my name is Tedman O'Hara and the creator of this blog. I'm currently running for Mayor of Media because after 18 years of neglect and complacency, Media deserves more from this important position. I'm not looking to make this a career (two term limit), nor am I looking for compensation (I'll donate 100% of what I'm paid back to the community.) What candidate does that? I will, because it's the right thing to do!
You're Better Off Ted!
I know thousands stop by this site each week, so here's what I need: I need your Vote November 5th so we can lead with enthusiasm, vision and a spirit that I know will make Media one of the best places to live in America!
Thanks! And enjoy this week's Media in Two Minutes!
Media in Two Minutes
Today is the Media Food and Craft Festival
Not sure what Media's Food Festival really means anymore, as it seems to be the same format that took place at Super Sunday. Crafts with food, but this time it is food with crafts.
What you can't miss, is the big show going on up a Joclyn's today. It's Media's favorite band, the Broozers. They kick off at 4pm.
Media VFW Gets Renovations
Looks like last weekend we had another record turn out for Media VFW's Sunday Breakfast. WOW, there was a line almost out the door, so maybe we need two people making omelets. If the vets need me, I'm there.
What did attract a lot of excitement was the new kitchen renovations done by the local Home Depot. I was able to get a couple pictures, and can say everyone was thrilled with how this turned out. Thanks for everyone who looks out for the Media VFW!
Media's Leaf Pickup Schedule for 2013
A search on the borough's award winning website doesn't yet list this year's leaf pickup schedule, but it usually starts around Oct 15th. We will post it here when it becomes available.
More of a Good Thing - Fellini's!
Fellini's is about to get bigger with plans to start expanding into the adjacent building that was recently vacated by Salad Stop. Don't get you hopes up, the added space won't have an affect on the wait time or reservations that are typically needed to get a table here. The place is that good! Try the prosciutto and peas dish.
Greek Food Fest - Middletown on Old Forge Road.
I'd rather drink ouzo on a beach in Kefalonia Greece, but the next best thing is the fantastic Greek Food Festival in Middletown this weekend. I spun by on Saturday and the place had a lot of people. Check it out, it's all ages with activities for the kids.
11th Annual Harvest Festival
Calling it Media's Napa Valley may be a stretch, but maybe not. Either way the 11th Annual Harvest Festival is going this weekend out in Chadds Ford. You want to get into the spirit of Fall, this will having you feeling it immediately. Wine, music, events.....you can't go wrong on this one. Maybe we'll see you there!
Rose Tree Colts Football Homecoming!
I haven't had this much fun in a long time! The Rose Tree Colts during their homecoming ceremony invited me to be recognized along with some iconic figures on Sartuday. One of which was Chief Hampton who was on tap for his vision and dedication towards making the Rose Tree Colts the program that it is.
I was called out on the field first so running down the field slapping the hands of the players lined up was great. Thanks to the Rose Tree Colts for a great tradition and program for the youth of our area.
Register of Wills - Jen Holsten Maddaloni
|Candidate for Register of Wills, Jen Holsten Maddaloni|
Look no further than Jen Holsten Maddaloni who is running for the county job of Register of Wills. A dynamic young woman with proven experience and skills for the position. I caught up with her this week at a speaking engagement in Media. She'll be out and about in the coming weeks to campaign in Media.
|Media's First Annual Turkey Drive|
There will be more about this in the coming weeks, but we're getting ready to do the biggest turkey drive Media has ever seen! I've got the best marketing and promotional minds getting ready to help make this a lot of fun.
Media Retailers Unite!
I'd like to recognize the great work that was done in a recent ad in Town Talk promoting Media's retailers. Retail Businesses got together and took out two full pages and filled it with individual ads made up of the stores in Media. At $75 for a business to participate with an individual ad, the TT pages were filled! The ad campaign was "Shop Local, Shop Media!"
