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.

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.
