Millennials would love H-Town, if they could afford it

A bit of information is coming out about Millennials and where they’d like to settle down. Turns out, it’s the ‘burbs. Great! H-Town’s a ‘burb. And we have all the things here these younguns are lookin’ fer: “It appears that what many Millennials want when picking out a place to raise a family isn’t a […]

Being Human in H-Town

PECO gonna creep your backyard. Maybe.

Chris Rock joked his only job as a dad was to keep his daughter “off the pole.” Seeing that PECO pole inspectors are usually of the male persuasion, we’re guessing he doesn’t mean utility poles… Haverford Township will have a bunch o’ pole workers in the area though. Every PECO pole (south of the Merion-Infernal-Buzzing-Goodyear-Blimp […]

ICYMI: Chestnutwold 5th graders win local essay contest

On January 11, the Delco News Network site reported on the (former Gov.) Rendell Center’s “Citizenship Challenge” essay contest.  The contest was held on December 17th 2015 and the winners, who took home a big ol’ check for $1000 were our own Chestnutwold 5th graders! Get this – they had to write about the 4th […]

Photos of theft suspect

Haverford Police Department released some security camera footage of a possible suspect for the rash of car break-ins (most recently along Colonial Road in H-Town). Below each pic is a guess at the suspect’s traits. Contact 911 if you’ve seen anyone like this.

Haverford Police: We’re on the prowler. You lock your car doors

A post is going around Facebook this week that reported of a masked prowler in the WestGate Hills section of H-Town. Here is a screen shot from Facebook, dated Jan. 15, 2016: We called the Haverford Police Department for an update. Lt. Hagan said there is increased patrols in the West Gate area but at […]

Fog on Karakung Drive

Here is a slideshow of a creepy bit of fog rolling over Karakung drive yesterday.

Whooping cough in HHS again. Babies Beware.

The Haverford High School nurse has sent through a warning letter containing information from the CDC about Whooping Cough. If you have a pre-vaccinated infant, take special precautions. If you are around infants, get a booster shot. Lots of adults contract whooping cough but it goes undiagnosed because adults don’t always get the “whoop” cough […]

H-Town Winter Sunset

From our walk last night. Grange Park.

Drones, drones, everywhere, and not a minute to think…

So H-Town cops have their own drones. The only shooting it does is with a camera, which the cops used in the summer to get arial shots of Merry Place’s Life. Be in it. Day. (Which, according to reports from H-Town’s youth, involved some sort of Kumbaya hold-hands-in-a-circle moment that was waaaaay awkward). Don’t shoot […]

Find the black dog – photos from today’s walk

We went for a little walk today along Pennsy Trail to see the snow before it melts. Shout out to the other dogs we met along the way, including new resident puppy Frank and his sweet mom and dad who know the former Miss Sandowich-now-Coffey (coffee n a sammich, anyone? Can’t make this stuff up) […]

What to do in H-Town if your pet makes a run for it

Dogs and cats are living together, out on the mean streets of H-Town. Well, maybe they aren’t living “together” exactly. They insist they’re just roommates. Still – what’s the procedure if your pet makes a break for his gang banging buds? And what do you do if you find a domesticated animal? Search your surrounding […]

Bamboozled: Bucks County town tryin’ to be like us

We’re just famous. That’s all there is to it. Or else, the Philly.com is obsessed with us like the New York Times is obsessed with Philadelphia. This time, Bucks County folks are planting the seeds of thought for a bamboo ordinance. The article mentions we Townies are pioneers, as we already have one in place. (BTW […]

Bee the Soda…

Saw this on Haverford today, in front of Ardmore Beverage:   Would this be soda for bees? Or soda made out of bees? Or, more of philosophical command, a la Caddyshack: Let it happen. Beeee the Sodaaa.  

Spiriting: Why your street’s trees are TP’ed

It may seem like mischief night has come early to H-Town, but what’s really happening is some good ol’ fashioned school spirit, in the form of bathroom tissue. Any trees on your street look like this lately?   Haverford High School’s Fords (Yes, they are named after the original car. Go figure) are a fun […]

Cars hitting houses

 CURB APPEAL Over on his blog Abominations, local author and college prof Marc Schuster tells of an SUV knocking the hell out of his rock retaining wall. It is the second of such incidents that we’ve heard about this Spring. Go on over to Marc’s blog to read between the lines and hear the angst that […]

made the Crab from an angel into a devil, put a bag of money in it's claw. Changed name from "Crab House & Sports Bar" to Crap Louse and Shorts Bar

Chickie’s & Pete’s have admitted to nothing…

But they are going to pay almost 7 million smackaroos to past servers for shorting them on their tips. Yes. STEALING their tips. Apparently it’s OK for an employer to take a “tip credit” (whatever that is) but then a base rate of $2.13/hr must be paid. Along with stealing 60% out of the shared “tip […]

Building in roman style in Harrisburg PA

Some Townie dropped out of some political race

In the very probable case you missed it, Townie Jack Stollsteimer dropped out of the PA state Commonwealth attorney general race. Currently our AG is Kathleen Kane and she ruffled a lot of feathers because we have dirty old creeps as judges in this faire greene land. Some accused her of misdeeds, but that all still […]
