Churches "going out of business"? Is this a sign of the decline of Lower Merion? LowerRead More Merion's population and economy have not grown, housing prices have declined as the cost of government escalates above the rate of inflation with no increase in quality or quantity of services.

Unfortunately, the decline of places of worship in Lower Merion and our American society at large isRead More just the move away from the very foundation of our beloved country; Jesus and God. Also churches are no longer interested in "loving their neighbors", one of the two basic laws of Christianity. They are only content with the bottom line strategy that translates to financial numbers. If Church boards would focus back on the real essence of Christianity which is to be a place of serving others with love and affection, then needless to say the numbers in the churches would increase and there would be no need to destroy these institutions that really hold the fabric of America together. Enough of addressing everything through the lenses of secularity. The spiritual things will never fit into some board of commissioners meeting. Never.

No blog but his twitter is twitter.com/glennochal there was also a nice article in the inquirerRead More yesterday about him, his brothers, and his workouts

Thanks, Amanda, for a wonderful writeup! p.s. how do you find out about such community events? DoRead More the organizers contact you ahead of time?
Amanda Mahnke (Editor) June 11, 2012 at 01:09 pm
Hi G Kimmo—thank you! Sometimes I just happen upon things (if there's anything mentioningRead More Ardmore, Wynnewood or Merion online, I get a Google alert about it and find it), and sometimes I get a heads up from someone within an organization. I try my best to get to the events I can, but can't always make it—for example, I missed GreenFest yesterday. I'm always looking for tips though, either on events or other other newsworthy things happening around town—I can be reached at ardmore@patch.com with any tips/ideas.
Amanda Mahnke (Editor) June 11, 2012 at 01:11 pm
I forgot to mention—I also try to preview said events in a stand-alone article or at least inRead More my weekly "Get Out" column (posted early Friday morning) so people know about them before they happen. Thanks for reading!

Mr. Peskin and others, Many years ago my father spotted a car repeatedly going around the block ofRead More our home in Rosemont. They were "casing" a neighbors house and my father ended up stopping a burglary in progress. That was the 1960's. As far as people making it easier by leaving their doors unlocked, that's all it does. Makes it easier. I want all of you to know that if criminal types want access to your house they will get it. I have lost count of young adults, I've discussed this with, under the age of 35 who KNOW how to make keys to locks in your doorknobs. Someone very close to me has been stalked and robbed repeadedly, and changed their locks multiple times, and these psychopaths each time gotten new keys to new locks. Yes, an alarm system would be the next thing, but these sick people are so determined, they would just trip it so the police must begin charging each time. I no longer live in Lower Merion, but it's a sick world out there....:o/

The use of technology would help our local community watch groups, ESP at night. Even Philly managedRead More to get neighbors and business involved via the use of existing cameras and all. People assume LM is on this same page. maybe so, maybe not. They do the best they can every day. My three decades in LM, the crimes seem to be the same, much more scary lately however in these times.

Wish this had been sent a week earlier so I could have done it.

Canned meats, paper products, beef stew; soap, detergent, shampoo and other toiletries are up there on our list, but we appreciate any unexpired shelf stable food - or groceries!
