Biting Back at Mosquitos in H-Town

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

Announcement saying the mall common areas are now closed.

Granite Run Mall Runs No More

From the Granite Run Mall social media pages: People are leaving comments with memories about growing going to the mall, how it was in its heyday back in the day, etc. We here at H-townies didn’t grow up going there, but when we moved to the area in 2000, that’s where the local townies told […]

So many questions in local teen’s death

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, […]

Facebook lit up this morning with parents searching for information after receiving texts from their students currently told to “shelter […]

HSD looking for a new superintendent

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.  

Part of the structure demo which happened later in the day

101 Tenby Demolition Begins

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.

De-Xmas-ing

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 […]

Halloween Decor Gone Bad

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 […]

Mismatched Sock Revolution?

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! […]

Giant’s A+ Rewards Program Not A Point-Stealer

Both Chatham Park and Haverford Middle School PTOs sent emails asking for us to sign up our Giant cards to the A+ Rewards program. The emails pleas have been a bit on the desperate side, containing reports of low sign-up numbers so far. We here at Havertownies are typical Haverford Township residents, which means, we […]

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 […]

A few prices for currently available spaces downtown for Pope Weekend on AirBnB

AirBnB wants your house for the Pope’s visit

  We all heard rumors about homeowners over by the golf course making gaboogle bucks renting out their house or even their backyards for the PGA tournament. But the reality was a bit different than that. Most people made the going rates, one to two hundred dollars a night per person-ish. Still, that’s some nice cash if […]
