Additional Info on the Phoenixville Education Campus released

Neumann College, which, along with the Phoenixville Education Campus at Franklin Commons, is set to open its doors in September, has announced plans for its initial educational offerings. The first is a master's of science in education.

---
The program can be completed in two years of part-time study. It is designed, he said, "for classroom teachers, or those who would like to become teachers, to earn the M.S. with certification in any of four areas: early childhood, elementary, secondary, or special education."

The second program is a certificate program in intelligence studies.

About options for programs in business, Bell said that Neumann officials would be talking with their colleagues among the participating colleges about possible collaborative programs.

But Neumann has already planned at least one other offering, a certificate program in intelligence studies. "This has been an offshoot of our criminal justice program here," said Bell.

This one-year, four-course program concentrates on methods in intelligence analysis, and supplements the concentration with electives in terrorism, organized crime, money laundering, drug smuggling, political corruption and Farsi. It "provides an opportunity for those who already have a college degree to enter a career field in which they can … help the national security effort," according to Ron Chance, professor of political science and criminal justice.

And that's not all! Two new schools have been announced as co-tenants. Joining Neumann and the previously announced Alvernia College and Montgomery County Community College will be Delaware County Community College and the Lansdale School of Business.

---
"At this point," Moskowitz said, "Neumann is coming in September and offering both a Master in Education program and a Certificate Program in Intelligence Analysis. Alvernia, MCCC, and DCCC will begin offering courses in January 2008. Lansdale School of Business will begin its work in Phoenixville in the Spring of 2008."

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

---
Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
