"Schuylkill Banks announced Wednesday that South to Christian has opened to trail users, extending the trail by another 1,400 feet and closing the gap between the Boardwalk and Grays Ferry Crescent. It’s a soft opening for the trail, with an official dedication following in the spring, according to the Schuylkill Banks, which also asked users to “please stay on paved areas only while plants and grasses become established.” In the meantime, the trail is open and already saw some use on Wednesday by cyclists and pedestrians."
"The refinery is Philadelphia’s single largest generator of particulate emission air pollution, according to city data. In the 19145 zip code that Thompson and her son call home, asthma is common among children, and the rates of hospitalization for the ailment are among the highest in the city. The cancer mortality rate too is among the highest in the city. ... Irene Russell is 66 years old and has lived in Grays Ferry all her life. She said her daughter and a couple of her grandsons have asthma, and that some friends have died of cancer. She blames it on the refinery but says she’ll never move out of her neighborhood. “If I’m not in Grays Ferry, then I’m nowhere in Philadelphia — I’ll rather go to Florida,” Russell said."
It happened at 11:40 a.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Wolf and Hemberger streets.
"Governor Wolf made the announcement at The Fresh Grocer of Grays Ferry in Philadelphia, where he was joined by legislators, local elected officials, store management, staff, and local workers, who were quick to praise the governor’s announcement."
"Bids were received for the new Schuylkill Crossing at Grays Ferry Crescent on December 7th, with a low bid of $15M by AP Construction. Bids are currently being evaluated. It is hoped that construction of this exciting project will start in March."
"The Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia, which handles the city's animal control efforts, is joining with the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society and the Pennsylvania SPCA to create the "Philadelphia No-Kill Coalition." The coalition will seek to end the killing of healthy, treatable and manageable cats and dogs in Philadelphia, which saved about 82 percent of cats and dogs that entered ACCT last year. That's a stark contrast from 2005, when about 89 percent of animals were euthanized. "
