New Book by Local Author Dr. Rocco Leonard Martino

Villanova, Pennsylvania — As an international authority on finance, planning, space flight, and computer systems, Dr. Rocco Leonard Martino recently published his latest novel, 9-11-11: The Tenth Anniversary Attack. Prompted by recent terrorist instances, Dr. Martino wrote this political thriller to address the need to avoid complacency and to counterattack with Cyber Warfare.

The timeliness of this novel transcends its reference to the upcoming tenth anniversary of 9/11. Dr. Martino reveals, “In my doctoral thesis, I worried about the re-entry of space vehicles. In this novel, I worry about how to defeat the terrorists and their deadly obsession. In this work of fiction, I propose some ideas.” 9/11/11: The Tenth Anniversary Attack triggers an undeniable awareness that calls readers to consider the future and act immediately. It depicts Cyber Warfare against the terrorists.

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.

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.

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'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
