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.

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.
