Election and security officials outlined the safeguards in place to protect Delaware County elections. Delaware County Elections Director Jim Allen, lead record writer Crystal Winterbottom and cybersecurity expert Kevin Scoglund, CEO of Citizens for Better Elections, introduced the protections already in place during a hot topic forum Friday hosted by the League of Women Voters in Central Delaware County titled, ” Delaware County Elections: Are They Free, Fair, and Safe?” Among the issues addressed were the voting process itself, mail ballots and the chain of custody in the electoral process for the county’s 410,000 registered voters.
Critics of mail-in ballot procedures in the last election filed a suit in Chester County Court asking officials to alter security procedures at two “round-the-clock” drop boxes used in the last election, alleging that people provided the ballot kit at those locations, in exchange for rules specifying that each A voter deposits only one ballot – his or her – at any time. The complaint, which was filed in the Joint Court of Appeals, on behalf of four county registered voters, was filed with the assistance of attorneys from Villanova’s prominent conservative law firm and an organization led by former Trump administration officials, the America First Legal Foundation.
Besides applause and cheers, there was a thunderous roar from start to finish during Saturday’s sixth annual Coatesville Invitational Vintage Grand Prix. Vintage and historic racing cars and motorcycles competed individually over a 2.2-mile course through Coatsville. This was the sixth annual event. During the opening ceremony, registered vehicles and motorcycles participated in a military parade on Lincoln Highway accompanied by the Coatsville City Police Department. A member of the Southern Coatesville Police Department sang the national anthem while the National Guard watched the flags being raised.
The site formerly known as the GSB Building in Bala Cynwyd is about to undergo major changes. This week, the Lower Merrion Buildings and Planning Commission recommended approval for new construction at the One Belmont Avenue parking lot along Belmont Avenue and St. Avs Street. The plan for the seven-acre site calls for two new buildings to be constructed in the front and side parking areas along Belmont Street and St. The buildings will be linked by an elevated footbridge.
More information was released Friday about Thursday’s explosion during bomb squad training at SCI Phoenix in the town of Skippack Thursday morning. “Everyone’s heart sank when we got the news,” said Sean B. Kilkenny, the Montgomery County Sheriff, during a Friday afternoon news conference, thanked the public for the prayers, good wishes and thoughts the department has received over the past 36 hours. Five bomb technicians were injured, including three deputies from the Kilkenny office, one soldier from the Pennsylvania State Police and a Philadelphia FBI special agent.
Ronald Acuna Jr. attacked and drove in four rounds from Aaron Nola and threw some great defense in the right field, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 4-3 win over the Phillies on Saturday night. The Braves’ victory was dwarfed by a broken right pinky finger sustained by second base officer Ozzy Albis, who appeared to be injured slipping safely to second base in the fourth inning. Albis, a two-time All-Star, may be out for several weeks. He just came back from an 81 game absence on Friday with a broken left foot.
Galen Regor will have revenge in mind when he checks in at Lincoln’s financial field on Monday with the Minnesota Vikings. Take that as a warning, Minor Eagles. At least worry a little if Rigor, who went bankrupt in the first round with the Eagles, gets a surprise attack this week. Last week, the wide receiver that was supposed to revolutionize the situation when the Eagles took him off the board with the 21st overall pick in the 2020 Draft took one kick back at seven yards, and the Show gained two more in a 23-7 win over Green Bay Packers.
