In the Delco League, Chester is the league’s best team. It’s such a contrast to the Chester High baseball team who are woefully bad considering that both teams wear the same colors and use the same field.
The Delco League Chester team does a magnificent job grooming the beautiful Chester High baseball field which they use after high school baseball ends.
Local folks, particularly the blacks one, chronically complain about the Daily Times. They claim the news is always negative, the coverage isn’t balanced, and Chester folks never have enough Chester stuff to read.
Today I read that a black guy has been stealing the Daily Times by the bundle for at least a week. Since you only need one paper to read, what could he be doing with the rest?

Sometimes on Sundays you're glad you went to church once you got there but struggled with staying in bed until the last moment.
Well, after the week I had, only the phone woke me from my exhaustion Friday eve where I realized it was 8pm. I wanted to stay in the EZ chair, but I made it over to Andre's Acoustique.
And I'm glad I did.
It's something about high energy live jazz that lifts the spirit. Infinity is an experience not to be missed. For those of you who did miss them, don't miss them next time. It only becomes a waste of a nap.

|L.A. Parker keeps it real|
Have you noticed the black face getting a few articles in the Daily Times lately? His name is L.A. Parker.
This week, L.A. Parker is covering the U.S. Open for The Trentonian and all the other papers owned by the Daily Times’ parent company.
He got a chance to ask a question Tuesday to Sergio Garcia, who made insensitive remarks in the direction of Tiger Woods last month. L.A.’s question was as follows:

|Chester's Favorite Publishers Stefan Roots (L)|
and Paul Bennett (R) of the C/C Spirit.
We agree to disagree respectfully.
As recent as yesterday, someone thanked me for featuring their neice in the Chester/Community Spirit. For the zillionth time, I had to explain that I have nothing to do with that paper.
Yes, it's confusing. When they started in 2008, they choose a name very close to my Chester Spotlight paper. Maybe they intended to confuse people or maybe it's the best name they could come up with.
