Proposed dialysis center will go before CHCA board for final approval

Revised plans by Fresenius Medical Care to convert a building at 10 E. Moreland Ave for use as an outpatient dialysis center and medical office suite were unanimously approved May 18 by the Chestnut Hill Community Association’s Development Review Committee after a lengthy discussion and hearing of public comments.

In its second appearance before the DRC, Fresenius presented changes to its original proposal based on input received from other CHCA committees.

Loves Mt. Airy with a passion
‘Theresa’ hits home run with Mediterranean BYOB

If there is one thing Theresa Vendetti Jonas loves more than pleasing customers in her new restaurant, it’s the Mt. Airy neighborhood she grew up in more years ago than she’d like to admit. Theresa’s BYOB, which is owned by Theresa and her partner, Bedros Kayserlian, a handsome native of Bulgaria, opened last December at 140 Moorehead Ave. in West Conshohocken, just to the right of the ramp off the Conshohocken exit of the Schuylkill Expressway.

The Mayor Quixotic

Like so many lousy summer blockbusters, the unfolding budget impasse between City Council and Mayor Michael Nutter feels rottenly familiar. It’s the same thing you’ve seen before. Again, the city faces a potential shortfall in funds. Again, libraries, fire and police departments are on the chopping block.

CHA second, PC fourth in Inter-Ac track

Rolling through the Inter-Ac track and field regular season with a 5-0 record, defending champ Malvern Prep was favored to win the league championship meet last Saturday.

HOW OLD WOULD YOU SAY THIS PHONE IS?
 “It’s stamped inside. I think it’s like 1943.”
HOW IS IT THAT YOU CAN FIX THIS PHONE
 (THAT I TRASHPICKED) SO IT STILL WORKS
WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY?
“It’s definitely a statement about how our technology
creeps along slowly. Luckily our technology is backwards
compatible which means they’ve added new technology
 but haven’t phased out the old stuff yet, although I think
they always threatened that your old phones wouldn’t work. But it never happened.”  — Jim Reed, Chestnut Hill resident.
