Two Labrador retrievers recently attended a County Council meeting when Councilman and retriever owner John McBlain reminded pet owners to get their lifetime or annual dog license.
“As the owner of a golden retriever, I can tell you that dogs bring a lot of joy to people. But dogs also bring responsibility, and one that tops the list is making sure your dog has a current dog license,” said McBlain. “Today, County Council is partnering with the County Treasurer’s Office and the Delaware County Kennel Club to remind pet owners that it’s time to get your 2017 dog license.”
People can get a dog license at the Treasurer’s Office located on the first floor of the Government Center in Media, go to the county website at www.co.delaware.pa.us to apply and pay online, or visit one of the registered agents in the county.
For 100 years, members of the Rotary have been helping people around the world achieve better health, clean water, education, and life-sustaining economies.
In Delaware County, there are 13 Rotary clubs whose members have traveled far and wide to help children and adults. The humanitarian engine that supports all of these Rotary projects is the Rotary International Foundation.
At a recent County Council meeting, Councilman Dave White recognized several Rotary Club members for 100 years of work on behalf of people in need.
Attending the meeting on behalf of the Rotary were Joseph Batory, Dan Lievens, Gary Zebrowski, Peter Mardinly, Fran Cross, Louise Vitello-Burroughs, Warren Sell, Edith Hilton, and Bonnie Korengel.
State Rep. William Adolph
Delaware County Council presented retiring State Rep. William Adolph with a resolution in recognition of his career as a public servant that started in the 1980s in Springfield Township.
“In today’s society, people are quick to complain about government, but very reluctant to get involved,” said Council Chairman Mario J. Civera Jr. “One man who stands out as a leading example of civic involvement and getting involved to improve your community is William F. Adolph.”
In the early 1980s, Adolph was coaching football for the Springfield Youth Club, and he went to the township to complain about the field conditions at the park. Next thing you know, in 1983, he’s a township commissioner. And in 1988, he was elected to represent the 165th Legislative District in Harrisburg. After 14 remarkable terms in state government, Rep. Adolph is retiring and returning to his Springfield roots.
Widener University’s School of Business Administration now offers a joint certificate program with the SAS Global Academic Program in Business Intelligence and Analytics. This is the first joint certificate program of its kind offered at the undergraduate level in the Greater Philadelphia region.
