There is always something more to know.  That’s what Kent CBG brings to the area at an early hour on a weekly basis.  The work of the three member panel of the Orphans Court is there to assist family members when they are having issues with the last wishes, the will or lack of a will for a deceased member of their family.  These are trained citizen judges, not necessarily formally trained in the way lawyers are, but that may be one of the good choices that government has made over the years.  Allowing the common sense of those individuals who are known and respected in the community to give skilled, trained, yet sympathetic assistance and judgment based on the law is a good thing.  With 15% of the deaths in the county ending up for some version of guidance or supervision, there is always something to be done by this panel of concerned citizens who sit as judges in such matters.

There seemed to be no end of interesting stories from the incumbents.  The job sounds intellectually rewarding, but don’t get involved for the money.  There is very little pay for this work, but it is of very high value to those who need this guidance to get past the probate process.

We wish all 4 candidates for the three positions good luck in the election.  The 4th candidate will visit with us Sept 13th.
