history at risk? west whiteland?

This came into my blog’s Facebook page a little while ago.  I thought I should share:

West Whiteland has NO agenda posted , but the meeting is at 7 PM (website says it starts at 6:30 PM )  at the Township Building Main Meeting Room 101 Commerce Drive Exton PA.

I would love to know WHY this is being considered, and I will definitely think less of Malvern Federal Savings Bank if this is true….

OH and I forgot to mention that…. it’s historic! Stone addition to the log house was built in 1771 then enlarged in 1810. For more information: http://history.kivlin.net/items/show/1219

Malvern Federal Savings and Loan PA Historic Resource Survey Form

As per West Whiteland:

This is a prominent township landmark which used to be on a small tenant farm of 23 acres. The core was built c. 1810. It was the office and residence of Dr. Andrew Wills (c. 1829) and Dr. David D. King (c. 1842). It housed the headquarters of West Whiteland Silica Company (1905-1910). It was adapted for commercial use as a bank in 1964 and renovated in 2000.

In other words, this structure is a historic asset?

very interesting in the realm of unwanted solicitation

I received the above spam text at the end of October of this year.

I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (it’s easy and only takes a minute or two CLICK HERE.)

I found out at the end of last week that a gentleman in St. Louis, MO named Kevin Etzkorn filed a law suit against the 3 Day Blinds company for just the same reason. I do not know this person in St. Louis at all.

Below is what was filed.  I am guessing that the days of this company and others doing things like this may hopefully be limited? Even non-profits should pay attention to this – I have had one recently send me a text message solicitation and I found it to be a turn off to the non-profit I have formerly given donations to.

If this litigation is successful, it will set precedence here, won’t it?

dear pennsylvania state game commission

Dear Pennsylvania State Game Commission,

I have no problem with legal hunting, but illegal hunting concerns me greatly.

A couple of Sundays ago at dusk a first grader was with his dad. The first grader looks up and sees a hunter in a make shift stand in a tree in woods adjacent to their woods.

A deer hunter with a gun. On a Sunday, no less. That is not legal in any dimension, let alone in such close proximity to houses.

A call to the game commission office responsible for Chester County (610-926-3136) was not exactly satisfactory. You see, the person taking the calls didn’t want to talk to anyone unless it was their personal safety zone and where the hunter was was adjacent to the personal safety zone of the caller. They were next door, so essentially the person taking calls for the game commission had a case of the customer service snotties.

Pennsylvania Game Commission, you can’t have it both ways. You want us as citizens to report illegal hunting, right? Then make it easier on us. Take the reports if we are taking the time to telephone you people.

Illegal hunting is illegal hunting and I keep hearing about it this year in Chester County. More than in years past.

Just today I heard about bow hunters in a residential neighborhood in Willistown. This is not ok. And no, people can’t just trespass and hunt.

Illegal hunting and poaching gives legitimate hunters an unfairly bad rap. It is also dangerous. In November a New York woman was shot and killed by a hunter less than a 100 yards from her property.

If you see illegal hunting, get to where you are safe and call the police. Don’t confront them.

christmas bluebirds

I love my own personal Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom that lives in our woods and in the gardens.  This year I have some new winter residents, Eastern Bluebirds.  I first saw them a month ago, and then I saw them again just now. It’s official, I’m in love.

These are the things that make living here in Chester County, PA so darn special. These are the things we need to conserve and preserve.  These are the things that all the wanton development spoils.  Tyvec wrapped stick frame construction with nary a tree to be seen can never, ever replace the simple joy of seeing bluebirds in your garden.

Anyway, if you enjoy the birds one of the things you can do is participate in Cornell’s Feeder Watch.  It’s fun! (My husband doesn’t know it yet, but I signed us back up!)

restoring architectural history in exton, pa

These are the things that make me so happy to see!

And yes, these farmhouses are indeed part of the architectural history of Chester County, Pennsylvania.
