Chester County Republican leaders railed Friday against Gov. Wolf's budget proposal, saying that it would force four-fifths of the school districts statewide to pay more and that county residents would have to shell out $177 million more in new taxes than they might save in property-tax relief. Gathering at the county courthouse in West Chester, the state and county representatives said they might be willing to consider one aspect of Wolf's plan - a severance tax on natural gas drilling that he has said could generate $1 billion for public schools.

Police and school officials in Chester County say they are investigating how a 7-year-old child was left alone in a parked school van for more than five hours in Kennett Square last week. The child, a pupil in the Kennett Consolidated School District, was the only passenger the bus driver had to pick up that day. But instead of dropping the child off at school, the driver parked the van for the day, apparently unaware the child had not gotten off. The driver was fired. Police and the district are investigating the incident, school officials wrote in a letter to parents Tuesday.

The pilot flying an airplane that crashed March 29 in Chester County had not flown since 2011, according to a preliminary report released Monday by the National Transportation Safety Board. The report - which officials said is subject to change - illustrates through eyewitness accounts what happened in the few seconds that certified pilots Joseph Deal, 64, and Richard Poch, 67, were in the air before their small plane crashed into a backyard in West Goshen Township. Both men were killed in the crash.

Joseph Deal loved adventure. Richard Poch seemingly spent nearly half of his life in or around a plane. On Sunday, the men, both certified pilots, boarded a small, single-engine craft at the Brandywine Airport in Chester County as part of a routine flight review conducted every two years to test a pilot's skills. They traveled not even half a mile before their plane abruptly crashed. "Joe was a kind soul and a wonderful man," Deal's family said in a statement Wednesday, after police publicly identified the men as the pair killed in the early-afternoon crash.

An airplane crash in Chester County that ended in two deaths Sunday came during a routine flight review conducted every two years to test pilots' skills, officials said Monday. The two victims aboard the flight were both certified pilots, officials said. The pilot flying the fixed-wing, single-engine airplane was accompanied by a certified flight instructor with Federal Aviation Administration designations. On Monday, 24 hours after the crash, many questions remained - mainly, what caused a small plane to fall abruptly from the sky Sunday after traveling just two miles from the Brandywine Airport in West Goshen Township.

At first blush, Upani Consultants of Chester County appeared to be a group of ambitious workers, mostly from India, who came to the United States on specialty visas to be employed as quality-assurance analysts and software engineers in information technology. But in fact, according to the guilty plea by Sudhakar Majety in federal court in Philadelphia late last year, the company he created a decade ago in Phoenixville ultimately exploited the H-1B "specialty occupation" visa program by using shell companies and sham contracts to give the impression that Upani needed staff.
