Missing Dog

Large white dog escaped(?) from 2744 More Street. This dog has been seen wandering out and about several times since Sunday and has almost got hit by cars several times at the corner of 28th & Moore. The occupants of the house do not speak English and the dog does not appear to understand English. It was last seen on the 2700 block of Pierce Street heading east at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, 2/10/16. The owner's door was closed and locked when I knocked to tell her the dog was out AGAIN. She appeared unconcerned. With the polar freeze coming I hope anyone who sees the dog would send me a message so I can help it.

  • LinLee UC resident

    Please report this and any subsequent sightings to ACCT (Animal Control) 267 385 3800 x600 (or opt 1), and if you think this dog is being neglected contact SPCA 24 hr hotline 866 601 spca. You can also post this information on craigslist (lost & found) and on the ACCT lost & found page: www.facebook.com/LostAndFoundPhilly/

    South Philly Review
    I did not storm to any store to stock up on bread, milk, and eggs ahead of last weekend's snowstorm, so French toast preparation was not among my endeavors as 22.4 inches of our frigid foe fell from the sky.

Jonas dumps double-digit snow figures

It seems one of the biggest piles of snow in the city, where tow trucks were dumping large amounts of snow, is at the intersection of Broad Street and Washington Avenue.

Ilene Wilder, president of the Columbus Square Advisory Council and resident of the 1300 block of South 13th Street, said “Columbus Park had a fun, impromptu snowball fight with parents and kids who’d built a snowball shooting range – they had such a good time.”

Anthony Caroto, husband to Newbold Civic Association president Levana Layendecker, said their go-to bars, South Philadelphia Tap Room, 1509 Mifflin St., and American Sardine Bar, 1800 Federal St., were humming with cold-weather specials like biscuits and gravy or grilled cheese with tomato soup.

    South Philly Review
    South Philly is still digging itself out of Winter Storm Jonas several days after snowfall ceased. And there was a lot: at the Philadelphia International Airport, the official measurement was 22.4 inches; the Lehigh Valley Airport recorded nearly 32 inches of snowfall; and most reports are declaring Jonas the fourth-biggest snowfall in 132 years of record-keeping.
