CHESTER — In a city rife with accomplishments in music performance and production, Jahlil Beats became the first Chester native to bring home the industry’s top prize of peer recognition on Sunday at the 61st annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
Beats received the honor for his production work on Anderson .Paak's “Bubblin'," which tied with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future and James Blake’s “King’s Dead” for best rap performance.
“Chester – we did it; we on the map, baby,” Beats said by phone Tuesday. “It’s a long time coming. We got more work to do.”

MIDDLETOWN — Elwyn is looking to a future that would include a smaller geographical footprint while planning to engage the community to preserve open space and create meaningful development.
Charles S. McLister, president and chief executive officer, joined other Elwyn executives in attending Monday’s Middletown Township Council meeting to make the public aware of some of the changes coming to the human services organization.
Although only in the conceptual stage at this point, McLister explained that as part of charting a five-year vision for Elwyn, the organization is considering continuing to shift from its on-campus residential model to a reduced-size campus, where educational and other services would continue to be met. The move would also include selling a sizable portion of its real estate, including the former Sleighton School property.
