    LOVE Park? More like loathe park! Criticisms mount as JFK Plaza slowly reopens.
    On Thursday, city officials gathered at LOVE Park to dedicate the southeast corner as Bank of America plaza and garden in recognition of a $250,000 donation from the financial institution. Jamie Gauthier, executive director of the Fairmount Park Conservancy, had the honors of thanking and introducing the bank's regional president who would present the oversized fake check.

Riding on the vehicles is perfectly legal if you are off road, but highly illegal on city streets. "There are no headlights, no tail lights, no brake lights and they're out there riding in the dark.

    Politically Uncorrected: Why the GOP Gubernatorial Primary seems so crazy
    For many, national politics today seems bizarre. Indeed, viewed historically we are living through an abnormal moment, a chronically controversial president, deeply polarized political parties, bitterly divisive issues and an angry, frustrated electorate. But for truly aberrational politics, Pennsylvania is ground zero.
