Three Reasons to Like Malvern Patch on Facebook
Drug searches, road washouts and 'Who bought the manse?'
Every so often, we bug you to like us on Facebook—or to encourage your friends to do so—by providing examples of how it's a mutually beneficial deal.
Here are three such examples from last week:
Lockdown at Great Valley High School—On Thursday, a reader asked, Do you happen to know why state police were at GVHS this morning? We did not know, but a couple quick phone calls revealed that the school was locked down while police dogs searched for drugs. We answered the question on Facebook first, then posted the story on Malvern Patch.
Water main break on Paoli Pike—On Friday, a reader gave us this traffic tip via Facebook: water and police on Paoli Pike near Devon road looks like a water main break. We confirmed with police, who said the normally busy roadway would be down to one lane during the Friday afternoon rush hour. Within minutes of the tip, we were able to send out a breaking news alert (sign up!) letting motorists know to avoid the roadway. On Saturday morning, we posted a photo of the reopened roadway.
Who bought the manse?—The gated home for sale at Paoli Pike and Sugartown Road has captured the curiousity of many neighbors. A quick post about a "Sold" sign now hanging outside the house generated much discussion on Facebook. One possibility—only the barn sold, and the house remains on the market.
So, if you haven't liked us on Facebook yet, we hope you'll consider it. It's easy. Click here. And thanks, as always, for reading!
