    December 14: Abate and switch | Blatstein & Super Wawa | Voices on stop-and-go
    Bart Blatstein's plans for a "Super Wawa" at Columbus and Dickinson directly counters the pedestrian-friendly goals of the city's Central Delaware waterfront master plan, Inga Saffron writes. Saffron criticizes Blatstein's proposed design and autocentric use, pointing to the intersection's potential as a walkable urban passageway, citing neighboring spaces like Race Street Pier and Spruce Harbor Park.

    Blatstein's Wawa proposal ignores pedestrian-friendly goals along Delaware waterfront | Inga Saffron

One of Philadelphia’s Finest Recognized for His Work in the Community

Paul Bryson started playing ball at Edward O’Malley Athletic Association, 144 Moore St., at age 5 and coaching at 13. In fact, the whole Bryson clan spent most of its time at the athletic haven.

“It kept the family out of trouble,” the native of the 400 block of Winton Street said. “It was something for us to do in the community.”

As a teen, he refereed hockey at EOM and umpired the summer baseball league at Burke Playground, Second and Jackson streets — in between playing his own hockey, baseball and football games. During the school year, he would try to squeeze in a snooze between school and practice.

“Sometimes I didn’t have a cat nap,” the St. John Neumann High School, 2600 Moore St., and Lincoln Technical Institute grad said. “I’d go right down to football. … I was always on the run from the time I got up to the time I went to bed.”

With his day job as community relations officer at the 1st District, 2301 S. 24th St., Bryson, who resides on the 2600 block of South Front Street with wife Patty, has sacrificed his vacation time to ensure he rarely missed a game.
