A certain story line played out in the local zeitgeist: local private school 13-year-old, stressed over late schoolwork, left his home right before a big snowstorm and had been missing for days. The kid’s family and local authorities called for massive media attention and search crew help. The indication was that maybe this normal, well-adjusted, […]
I love my town. And its mosquitos love me. Endless Love H-Town is a fantastic place to live. The people are great, the lawns are all squared away (for the most part) and we’ve got plenty of good bars lying around. The only thing I hate are the mosquitos. When I say they are a pain […]
Being Human in H-Town
Haverford High School students were sent back to normal class activities at 9:50 a.m. this morning, Monday, January5, 2015 after a student reported a threat delivered via another student to the school’s principal, Dr. Nesbitt. Facebook lit up this morning with parents searching for information after receiving texts from their students currently told to “shelter […]
Looks like Dr. Keilbaugh is retiring. Chester County Intermediate Unit seems to be the go-to group for this kind of search. Guess what! You get to weigh in. Please see the flyer for open forum times and dates.
Builders tore into the aged structure located at 101 Tenby today. The demolition began this morning in the rain. We visited the (very chilly and wet!) site and gathered some shots. The last photo in the series is courtesy of the homeowners. It depicts partial demolition of the house’s outer wall.
Dr. Nesbitt, principal of the Haverford High School, sent out a robocall this evening to all HHS parents. The message states that a pencil-scrawled threat of a bomb going off in the high school set to detonate tomorrow at 12 noon was found in a bathroom stall today. Dr. Nesbitt made a note of the […]
Pertussis Contact The HHS school nurse just sent out the following email detailing the pertussis contact in the high school and what to do if your child is coughing. Also to note: adults need boosters for this, as our immunity has run out and there is obviously not enough herd immunity anymore. Please see attachment […]
The Friends of Haverford Trails sent out a how-to email with a step-by-step guide using Google Maps to highlight bike routes in the region. Here’s how you do it (all quoted from the Friends of Haverford Trails email newsletter): The “Bicycling” layer of Google Maps highlights three types of facilities: readily bikeable trails, dedicated bicycle […]
Stars are falling, angels are being stuffed into boxes, and lights are going out. It’s the de-christmas-afying of Haverford Township. We’re making better progress today than we predicted. What we thought would be a 3-day takedown will probably only amount to 2 broken days’ worth. We’ve gotten everything off the upstairs tree and everything that […]
Guess this doc in Clifton, NJ (one of my husband’s many hometowns) is running afoul of the law over his Halloween display. You read that right. Halloween. Not Christmas. How’s that for scary? The bar’s been raised while I was napping. That guy’s almost arrested because of Halloween decorations and I have yet to bring […]
For the past year or so, my fellow parents and I have noticed an epidemic of mismatched socks on the toes of our teens. The kids around here wear contrasting hosiery with pride. Like most parents, I poke my progeny for clues to keep me up-to-date on the latest trend amongst the teeny-bopper set (<-ha! […]
Just got an email from the Haverford Middle School. Turns out the NFL isn’t the only organization with a bacterial problem. A student has been diagnosed with MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, colloquially pronounced “MERR-sahh” by the medical community). This is a very strong, antibiotics-resistant bacterial infection that can kill people. Although the numbers of deaths […]
