A candidate for Media Borough Council has questioned the borough's acquisition of a private parking lot for $117,000 last year. John Stubbs raised the issue of the acquisition of the lot, at State Street and Galey Street, at the council's Thursday night meeting.

Mayor Frank Daly said in an interview that the borough purchased the lot in June as part of the council's attempt to improve Media's chronic parking problems.

A plan to turn portions of two Paoli properties into a parking lot is unfair to the property owners and a waste of public funds, the owners told the Tredyffrin Township supervisors at their meeting Monday. Township officials said that the plan was proper but that the owners could challenge it in court once condemnation proceedings began. Meanwhile, said board Chairman Paul Olson, "the Paoli area is desperate" for parking. The proposal to condemn the rear portions of two lots on South Valley Road, south of Lancaster Avenue, cannot solve Paoli's parking problems, according to one of the owners, attorney William L. McLaughlin Sr. The properties in question are the rear lots of McLaughlin's home and law office at 23 S. Valley Rd. and of a neighboring apartment building.

There's a certain romance to Jeff Dobkin's concept: Older guy, entrepreneur - with guts - toughs it out on a parking lot with a new idea. In a very public way. Because, at age 63, with four marketing books and a handful of inventions on his resumé, there still had to be time for one more great idea, for one more chance to launch something big, and maybe most important for Dobkin, one more time to avoid life's could-have, should-have regrets....
