As reports of violence escalated the past couple of weeks, one of the things that was considered was a crackdown on public gatherings. Here's the proof. It's more proof that there area a lot of good things in the city of Chester. On Saturday, we detailed the efforts of a group to start putting into action some of the things that have been talked about during brain-storming sessions in the city in terms of 'solutions' to the violence that has the city in its grips. I would have understood if the mayor had gone ahead and cancelled the parade. But I'm glad he didn't. The county and region needs to see that there are more than one story coming out of Chester.
