Project Transition patients forced out of CH Village homes

About two months ago, Chestnut Hill Village management decided not to renew more than 20 apartment leases held by Project Transition, a Chalfont-based, for-profit, psychiatric treatment program that seeks to reintegrate its patients into society.

The problem is that no one from the Chestnut Hill Village management office or AIMCO, the Denver-based apartment management company that owns Chestnut Hill Village, told Project Transition CEO Luke Crabtree that all of his patients would need to be out by June 30.

Resurrected. The Celtic cross at the intersection of Germantown Avenue and Winston Road recently underwent a full restoration under the care of Laurel Hill Cemetery’s general manager, Bill Duran, who lives in Mt. Airy. Duran completely cleaned and re-pointed the cross, erected as a memorial to seven Hill and Mt. Airy residents killed in combat during World War I. Chestnut Hill Garden District Fund president Emily Daeschler and vice president Dottie Sheffield said they were pleased with the look of the restored cross and planned to begin planting at the site immediately.

In recession, business actually better than ever
Two years of hugs and kisses at Bacio, an Italian BYOB in Mt. Airy

What is it with apartment complexes anyway?

It seems that every couple of years, one of the major apartment complexes in Chestnut Hill has a serious flare up of resident outrage.

So it was no surprise when Chestnut Hill Village resident Thomas Lind came to visit me a month ago complaining of multiple problems with the management company that owned his apartment building: AIMCO.

Springside School alumna Katie Bolton ‘04 was back at her alma mater this month discussing bioethics with Biology students.  After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania last year with a B.A. in Health and Societies; Concentration in Health Policy (Minor in Intellectual History), she currently serves as Development Coordinator for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Prior to her visit, during their DNA technologies unit, students learned about genetic screening, used PCR and gel electrophoresis to screen an area of their own DNA on chromosome 1, and analyzed several genetic screening case studies.  They then met with Bolton to hear about the realities and legal issues involved in genetic screening and other bioethical issues.

GFS sticksters top struggling Springside

After falling behind 3-0 at the start of last Wednesday’s non-league lacrosse match, the Lions of host Springside School showed some pluck by rallying back within one goal of visiting Germantown Friends.

The tally was 5-4 with a little over eight minutes remaining in the first period, but then the Tigers put the hammer down, taking control of the contest with a 7-0 run that bridged the two halves. Germantown went on to win 13-7, receiving six goals from senior Lydia Kring, four from freshman Iris Williamson, and a hat trick from junior Betsy Sachs
