Dialysis center OK’d despite neighbor fears

Despite the objections of near neighbors, the Chest   nut Hill Community Association’s Board of Directors endorsed plans to renovate the industrial building at 10 E. Moreland Avenue and open a medical office and dialysis center on the site. 

The meeting started on a contentious note. Before it was even called to order, board president Walter Sullivan ruled on limiting comments by members of the public to three neighbors only, who would each get two minutes to address the board. This motion, however, was overruled by a majority vote of the board to allow the public an unlimited amount of time to present their concerns to the board.

Duped

The byproduct of online journalism that I dislike the most is the comments section.

Journalism is a tough trade to begin with. It’s a profession that depends a lot on quoting sources, sources who often tell the truth but can also say things that veer from the truth in ways that range from delusional (it’s not true, but the person believes it to be true) to outright lies (obvious). It can be confusing. It is because of this that many people dislike the press.

I KEEP ON RUNNING INTO PEOPLE WHO ARE HOMESCHOOLING THESE DAYS. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING IT AND HOW DID YOU GET INTO IT?
“I’ve been doing it for four years and I found out about it through my cousin. Actually, I home-schooled [my son] through public school the first year, cyber charter for the past three years. Public school wasn’t good for home schooling. … Now the cyber school, they have a lot of support. He has a special ed. teacher, a regular teacher and specialized teachers.”
Tameica Lawrence of Mount Airy.
