Dylan Baker dumped a handful of grass seed near one of the 90 or so trees he helped plant a few weeks earlier, then looked at a group of boys swinging from a vine attached to a 30-foot tree.

“That’s what the project’s all about,” said Baker, glad to see people using the space.

Classic iron out of the garage

The gas wasn’t reaching the carburetor in the 1933 Plymouth PD DeLuxe, and for the second time in a month, Richard Parsons tracked the problem down to the fuel pump.

He spent Wednesday morning in his West Whiteland Township garage trying to fix the antique in time for Sunday’s 29th annual Chester County Car Show.

“So with our fingers crossed, we’re hoping that it’s going to start up soon,” said Parsons, who was working alongside Dean Jones, a friend and former owner of the car.

Eatery’s fans hunker down for break

Eatery’s fans hunker down for break

Matt Crunkleton entered the no-frills, no-fries hamburger joint at 1:40 p.m. last Sunday, looked at a sign, and pumped his right hand in triumph.

“We came on the last day. That’s awesome,” the 23-year-old from Springfield said to his friend, and then ordered five cheeseburgers with ketchup and relish.

If Crunkleton had come around 1 hour and 45 minutes and about 240burgers later, he would have had to wait until Charlie’s Hamburgers reopened on Jan. 16.

The shop, founded in Springfield in 1935 and then relocated to Folsom in 1986, takes a vacation every winter.

The time off has decreased over the years from three months to six weeks to 3 1/2 weeks this year — the first time the restaurant will reopen
before the Super Bowl.
