This Saturday in Oxford is the place to be as three stages of bands, lots of great artwork, and fun and games for all ages converge throughout “Main Street” Oxford. HERR’S is hosting this event and WXPN is providing radio sponsorship for the event. This year’s headliner will be the 90’s band, Blind Melon. Oxford Borough is offering free parking. Come join your local community for all of this, plus food trucks, street performers, cold craft brews and wine from our local vineyards.

ARK Spine Care & Pain Management offers the most comprehensive non-operative pain management care available. Dr. Jha is a triple board certified (Pain management, Neurology, Psychiatry) physician who is dedicated to upholding the highest professional standards and providing the highest quality of healthcare while striving to deliver pain relief for her patients.
Chronic pain is a complex condition with multiple layers of challenges, many which unfortunately are invisible to others except for the person suffering. It often has multiple facets to its presentation ranging from physical and emotional to social factors. Unfortunately, very commonly, chronic pain goes untreated or under-treated in our society.
Given the complexity, the essence of comprehensive pain management at ARK Spine Care & Pain Management includes a multimodal approach, which includes different modalities spanning from physical therapy, medications, psychological treatments if indicated, and injections. Reliance on only one modality may result in minimal or partial improvements. Our ultimate goal is to improve our patient’s level of functioning and pain scores in the most compassionate and safe way.
Providing the most advanced medical approaches and highest quality of pain management, Dr. Jha strives to work with patients to develop a plan of care that best meets the needs of each individual. She evaluates patients with a variety of pain problems and devises a carefully thought out treatment plan according to each unique pain problem. Implementing interventional and non-interventional therapies of pain management to deliver effective comprehensive care, ARK Spine Care & Pain Management provides the highest quality of non-operative pain management available.
According to the CCEDC (Chester County Economic Development Council) a new CCEDC-led taskforce has been created to facilitate new business along the US1 corridor from Kennett Square and traveling Southbound to the Maryland line. This is our backyard folks. We are excited and anticipating the opportunities this poses for the Southern Chester County business community, not to mention the Commercial Real Estate biz in our local region.
Representatives from a dozen municipalities have come together to brainstorm and create a “draw” to this specific area of the Greater Delaware Valley. Within the next ten years, they estimate 3 million sf of commercial real estate to be in the project development stages.
The foremost hurdle they must bound is targeting the issues that hinder new growth and interest. Pinpointing those ball-and-chains is paramount before moving forward with new marketing and splash about Chester County. Key infrastructure challenges include public transportation, sewer and water utilities, affordable housing, land planning and the overall approval process. Without a coordinated effort by all key parties, we lose countless opportunities to other states. Jobs and revenue cast away for naught. Agencies working together, efficiencies in executing new utility extensions honed and innovative implementations by the local leadership would all be integral portions of this new “plan” as I see it.
We do have positive attributes going for us. Large thriving companies have made their home here. They include:
- Herrs Corporation
- Dansko Corporation
- Dole Mushroom
- Flowers Foods/Tasty Baking Oxford
- Genesis Health Care
- W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc.
- Neuchatel Chocolates dba Confiseurs, Inc.
- Leading Edge Composites, Inc.
- Pollert Plastic Systems
- Endo Pharmaceuticals
We look forward to new possibilities, challenges and successes for the Southern Chester County corridor and are very proud to be a part of the transformation of a new portal of flourishing business and industry.
