"I know we are OLD, but we are still best buddies and Valentines," wrote Kathleen Levering.

Patch asked our readers for love stories on Valentine's Day and Angela couldn't wait to tell us about her pair of men – Brian and little Jaxon.
Angela says a picture is worth a thousand words. That's why she sent us this photo series of her love story – a picture of her and Brian dating, their engagement picture, a wedding picture and a picture of the happy couple expecting their first child.

Ever since Chik-fil-A President Dan Cathy proclaimed that the fast-food chain is supportive of the biblical definition of marriage, social networks across the web have been awash in arguments from both sides of the debate. Now, a local voice has chimed in on the matter, as Domenick Scudera, a theater professor at Ursinus College, has firmly stated his opposition to the chain in a recent update to his blog on the Huffington Post.
