The West Chester Area school board decided Monday how it will redraw its voting boundaries into regions, marking the latest step in the district's move away from the at-large system it has used since its consolidation in 1966. The board voted, 6-2, to approve the new map, which divides the 75-square-mile district into three regions of about 36,000 residents each. It keeps West Chester Borough in one region, a previous point of contention. Approval of the map means the new voting system could be in place in time for next year's primary elections in the district, which has almost 12,000 students.

Red-light cameras soon will be legal in some Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties communities, under a bill that was poised for legislative approval Friday. A bill to continue Philadelphia's red-light camera program past its scheduled expiration Saturday was broadened in the Senate to include Pittsburgh, as well as Philadelphia-area towns with more than 20,000 people and accredited police departments. That would include Falls, Middletown, and Warminster Townships in Bucks County; West Chester and Tredyffrin, West Goshen, and West Whiteland Townships in Chester County; Chester, Media, and Haverford, Radnor, Springfield, and Upper Darby Townships in Delaware County; and Norristown and Abington, Horsham, Lower Merion, Lower Providence, Montgomery Township, Upper Dublin, and Upper Merion Townships in Montgomery County.

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.

Kandie Esterl and her 20-year-old daughter, Kellie Caldwell, stopped their car on Route 322 in West Goshen yesterday to visit the burned-out wooded area where "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn and his friend were killed in a fiery crash Monday morning. Caldwell, a huge fan of the "Jackass" film and TV offerings, will turn 21 in September. Her mother wanted her to be able to pay her respects - and to come away with a warning. "I wanted her to see it so she can see what speed and drinking does, even to good people," said Esterl, of Downingtown.

West Goshen Township officials voted Wednesday to accept a settlement agreement that would limit Sunoco Logistics' pipeline construction but that critics say would make fighting future pipeline projects more difficult. The 5-0 decision by the Board of Supervisors came a month after the board tabled the vote after hearing from angry residents who wanted more from the deal with Sunoco Logistics. About 50 people attended Wednesday's meeting. After the April meeting, the board reviewed the agreement based on residents' concerns about safety and about the township's ability to contest future pipeline plans, said Theodore Murphy, vice chair of the Board of Supervisors.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities.   Like love and marriage, West Goshen and West Chester go together like a horse and carriage. It's not that West Goshen Township, which surrounds the Chester County seat, can't stand on its own. It's simply that West Chester's growing restaurant scene and other amenities have made it a destination for those living in the towns nearby. The fact that West Goshen is just minutes away from the borough's downtown gives its residents a head start on parking.

In response to Sunoco Pipeline L.P.'s plans for a pumping station, a Chester County town passed a series of amendments to its zoning code Tuesday that will make it harder for pipeline companies to win approval for their projects. Under the amendments West Goshen Township supervisors approved at a special public hearing, the township will restrict pipeline companies to industrial areas, require them to prove their projects are necessary as public utilities, and force them to meet a series of requirements regarding safety and emergency planning.

Sunoco Logistics representatives, whose attempts to answer residents' questions about a proposed pumping station were met with anger Tuesday night, will get another chance to hear residents' concerns at a West Goshen zoning board meeting next Thursday. Sunoco hosted a question-and-answer forum Tuesday at West Chester East High School, where more than 250 people showed their frustrations about Sunoco's communications with the public and the pumping station itself. Sunoco acknowledged that it should have reached out to a broader range of residents earlier than it did, which is one reason it hosted the forum.

Four environmental advocacy groups filed to intervene formally in Sunoco Pipeline L.P.'s application for public utility corporation status, which would exempt its 299-mile Mariner East pipeline to Marcus Hook from local zoning codes. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network, the Clean Air Council, the Pipeline Safety Coalition and the Mountain Watershed Association filed requests by Monday's deadline with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to intervene in the case. The advocacy groups argue that Sunoco does not meet the legal standard for classification as a public utility corporation and should not be exempt from the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code.
