I hope it's a joke too. This guy only needs help keeping his breakfast, lunch and dinner arrangements straight. Just look at his blog and you'll see how he spends his days. And we pay him for this?

Don't you guys get that his blog is a joke. It's meant to be as ridiculous as some of the blogs in this town. Jim's blog is one of the only good reads. Most of the others are meant to inflame peoples views and fan their distrust. As far as needing an assistant, maybe he does. Why don't one of you folks go down to Barry's office and spend a day or 2 with him and see if an assistant would be helpful. The guy has helped (key word helped) transform our downtown into a unique town with plenty of things to see, do, and buy. I don't like everything Barry does and often disagree with him but the guy gets a lot of funding secured to acquire our lamps, benches, trees, brick sidewalks, trash/recycle bins, flowers, entertainment, fountain, etc. I guess you don't see that? Please, someone tell me some things that he has done to earn your distrust (facts only, no false information)? What I don't get is that some of you people don't trust Barry and I can't see what he has done to earn this distrust? I believe as our downtown goes the rest of our town goes. If you were here years ago the downtown was run down and unsafe and the rest of the town reflected that. Now our town is thriving and moving up and that is also reflected in the rest of the town. I think we should be supporting our downtown efforts and be involved in making it better. That is the best way to effect what direction our towns progresses. Not by complaining about everything that gets done. Jeesh!

Hey great comeback (yeah right). You obviously did your homework. Anything else you would like to add? I mean, the amount of time you must have put into that answer is incredible - I'm serious. So witty and yet charming at the same time. Have another drink!

How about those of you are complaining spend some of your own time making this town better? If you aren't doing that then you have no basis for complaining.

If it weren't for the revitalization that has occurred in Phxville's downtown I wouldn't have moved here (and there are many others who would say the same). While Barry isn't the only person behind the revitalization, he is a big reason for it.

Hey Solo, I like that you're up early in the morning with a clear head. Thats all anyone does on this blog site and others - complain, complain, and probably complain to others. So f..... boring. How about some good positive solutions to go along with all of these complaints. Actions speak so much louder than words. Ahhhh, so many words and so little action.

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…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:

Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s.

The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at the sty…
