Drexel grad's close friends honor her 'beautiful spirit'

"She was always the quiet one," Toney said as dusk fell at Drexel Park, on Baring Street near 32nd in Powelton, where about 10 of Wright's friends gathered to honor her memory. "But once you got to know her, you saw she had this amazing energy and humor."

During the somber Drexel ceremony, Toney recalled the last time he saw Wright: July 13, at the NAACP convention in Center City. Later that night, he had dropped her off at her home on 50th Street near Locust in West Philly, watching to make sure she got inside without incident.

    Posted: Thursday, July 23, 2015, 12:16 AM IT WAS ALMOST by accident that Tyshawn Toney reconnected with Jasmine Wright, an old friend from Penn State University. A few weeks ago, a photo of her at Drexel University popped up on his Facebook.

    A&P bankruptcy to shutter local Pathmark, Super Fresh stores
    Posted: Monday, July 20, 2015, 1:47 PM The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., better known as A&P, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York - its second such petition in five years. For now, business will continue as usual at the company's stores.

  • well with the crime they had there at 840 Cottman Ave I figure people might've stayed away. They needed better security there with the stabbings going on. People don't go where they don't feel safe.
