Media in Two Minutes

Media in Two Minutes

My deepest sympathy and condolences on hearing of the passing of Shawn Brodie during the tragic fire in Chester on Saturday.  I knew Shawn as "Brodie Bear" and he was one of the most likeable guys you could meet.  I never saw him without a smile on his face.  He will be greatly missed.


Having been to opening day for Media Little League yesterday, I now know why Media has state champion teams; it's one of the best run organizations around.  From the fields, to player, to coaches and the many who support this program on a host of levels; it's TOP NOTCH.  

Yesterday's ceremony that included hundreds of people was excellent.  Thanks for the recognition and providing an important program that everyone is proud of.

Please support the Conquest Family whose house was ravaged by fire this week.
Thankfully, no one was hurt in the fire on Summer Lane this week.  However, the family's house was totally destroyed which would be a hardship for anyone.  If you can, even a $5.00 donation can add of quick to help a family in need.

ROTARY Does it Again
Everywhere I seem to  turn, I see Media Rotarians out and about helping the community.  Yesterday was the 48th Annual Media Pancake Breakfast.  Even at 8am there was a line forming to get in and looked to be huge success.  Great Job!

MC Automotive for Motorcycles
Media, you're in luck if you ride a motorcycle and need repairs.  I found out after knowing someone who knows someone; that Media does indeed have a motorcycle repair shop right here in the borough.  Craig down at MC Auto did an EXCELLENT job on my bike and the recommendations he had for tires on my '08 KLR 650 were spot on.  Thanks!  I'll have a few more coming your way. 

Media Fails to Notify Community about Olive Street Garage

The ask was easy: Put signs up in Olive Street Garage warning people of the effects of rain run-off leaking through the seams.  And yet again nothing is done by Mayor McMahon and Borough Council.  Yesterday, I was contacted AGAIN about damage incurred to a car because of this problem.  It's not just dirt, it's the harsh substances that make up concrete that is being carried by rain water onto people's cars and destroying the paint and finish. 

Delaware County has an Edge!
I see these kind of videos all the time and I don't usually watch pass a minute or so, though this one was produced extremely well and resonates with viewers.  If you're interested in what this county has to offer and what direction it is going in, check out the video.  Well done and produced by a company in Media.


  1. How much did that video cost to produce?!?!

  2. You forgot Super Sunday today .. boy is this a disgrace

  3. thanks for the props to MC Auto.. from some one who knows someone

  4. Just an FYI for anyone who's car is suffering from damage....I spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove the run off from the olive street garage from my daughter's car.......what finally worked with some serious elbow grease was straight white vinegar....pour it on a sponge and hold it on the stain until it loosens enough to be scrubbed off..........painstakingly slow but works! Be sure to rinse off the vinegar when you are finished to prevent further damage to your paint...........high school chemistry finally came in handy.....

  5. Delco has poor taste in lamps.
