A DelCo driver could have used some of Cliff Lee's focus early this morning when he wrecked his car because he was distracted by a text message about the Phillies win against the Dodgers, police said.

Claudio Kuhn, 39, was driving his Toyota Camry on Rose Valley Road in Rose Valley around 1:28 a.m. when a friend sent him a text message that read "The Phillies won!"

With eight scoreless innings on the mound and a home run at the plate, pitcher Cliff Lee dominated in the 2-1 game in Los Angeles that ran from last night into early this morning.

A DelCo man's murder investigation has led police all the way from Nottingham to Indianapolis.

On Sunday, Andre Dupuis 32, of Aston, was found dumped along Lees Bridge Road in West Nottingham Township, Chester County. Dupuis, a landscaper, had been shot to death, police said.

State police honed in on robbery as a motive and put out an "attempt to locate," message to authorities across the country, telling them to keep a look out for Dupuis' 2006 GMC Sierra truck.

It's about time

My Facebook friends may already be familiar with this brilliant ad campaign I stumbled upon last night while driving down Chester Pike in Sharon Hill in my '98 Monte Carlo with an Arby's Jr. Roast Beef.

Today, I thought you should see it too. Because it just works.

I think this used to be a Hollywood Video, which got Netflix'd awhile back. Anyway, things are finally turning around in this shopping center. In some ill-defined way.
