1. Purchase of part of the Birchrunville Schoolhouse Property
Here is an article in the the Daily Local about the acquisition of
the Birchrunville Schoolhouse (former West Vincent Township
From the article: “There’s a limit to what a governing body
can do to limit development on land,” Brown said.
Sadly, David Brown, now a 2 year veteran of the Board of
Supervisors flagrantly ignores the fact that the Supervisors CHOSE
the Zoning for the property and to NOT deed restrict it prior to
the sale by the Township. This created the entire problem and
ensuing chaos with the citizens of West Vincent. Re-read my
e-mails dated 22 December 2013 and 1 January, 2013 to refresh how
the entire story unfolded.
2. West Vincent Website hacked
I have been informed that not only has the West Vincent Website
been hacked, there are warnings were coming up on FireFox and
Explorer to not go to the site as it may contain viruses. Oops!
Even as I write the site is also a mess. Meetings and minutes are
missing, unless you want 2011. At times, that won't even come up.
A quick look at Safe Browsing by Google doesn't leave one overall
confidence in the security protocol of the Township. Take a look
at the attached screenshot. Looking at the report, the site has
been a risk to computers for quite a while. I recommend that
anyone that has been to the township website in the last 90 days
and noticed something strange with their computer should check
their anti-virus is up to date (you do have an anti-virus program
installed on your computer?) and I would suggest running an anti
malware program. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is an excellent
program for this, and free. For anti-virus both Avast! and AVG are
very good, and free. Above all don't (ever!) give out any credit
card etc numbers in response to an email request, responsible
companies will never ask this by way of an email.
Hopefully, by the time you read this, the site has been fixed.
3. Charity benefit for Ken Miller
Here's some interesting reading. http://chestercountyramblings.com/2014/01/13/great-balls-of-cheese/
Perhaps some of you might want to consider attending to help the
finances of the Chairman of the Board and Roadmaster of West
Vincent Township. His part time job as Roadmaster, 20 hours per
week (undocumented) pays over $25,000 per year, plus he just
received a 3% raise! In addition, he and his family get full
health care on your dime, good for over $15000 per year. But his
full time job is Farmer and cheese manufacturer. He is the
beneficiary of a charity to help his cheese making business
(WHAT?!) by combining the operation from both his location for
milk and the actual production facility at Kimberton Camphill
Special School into one location, which is at his farm. That's
right, Ken Miller's farm, here is a report on it from the EPA,
