Meet the Asian immigrants running some of Philly best French bakeries

Han’s first business was a grocery store at 54th and Race, which he left to open Paris Baguette. The European influence, he says, comes from his training in South Korea and his European coworkers in the hotel kitchen where he worked.

    Meet the Asian immigrants behind some of Philly's favorite French bakeries
    Maybe you did a double take when you saw that new storefront in Chinatown: Paris Baguette. But if you went inside, you'd realize that the shop, with its cashiers clad in Breton stripes and gray berets, is quite at home next to the Chinese grocers and hot-pot spots.

Dozens spend MLK Day looking for a second chance at a clean record

MLK Day gave Sullivan the chance to get some guidance in how to do that. He went to the rec center at 5700 Haverford Ave. for a three-hour workshop, “Pathways to Pardons and Expungement,” hosted by State Rep. Morgan Cephas and Lt. Gov. Mike Stack.

    Dozens spend MLK Day looking for a second chance at a clean record
    While thousands of volunteers fanned out across the region Monday to spruce up forlorn places to mark Martin Luther King Day, about 100 people gathered at West Philadelphia's Shepard Recreation Center to learn how to clean up their own backyards - that is, their criminal records. Leon Sullivan was among them.
