Kudos to Cop, 1st Dist, in white suv 3:20 am Mon. 6/18, 1800 Mifflin St, 19145, stopped senior citizen as she was entering her home w/a bucket of gravel from street paving to fill around her tree.

Kudos to Cop, 1st Dist, in white suv 3:20 am Mon. 6/18, 1800 Mifflin St, 19145, stopped senior citizen as she was entering her home w/a bucket of gravel from street paving to fill around her tree. "Excuse me, Miss, what are you going to do with that bucket of gravel, asks he", "Why, I'm going to place it around my tree" says she. The truck tore up the pavement digging up the street, there's grass growing, neighbors don't like it, dogs are pissing in it', so I"m going to put gravel to discourage it'... "As long as you're using it on City Property" says he. This is a scene from a Keystone Kop episode, Certainly, taking property from...egad!...the city..that doesn't belong to you should be punishable accordingly. Is there cause for real concern here? At the same moment as the cop stopped to give her the business, across the street, a guy in long dreadlocks and looking very unkempt was shining a light into cars looking for something.
Gee, Officer K, I hope you drilled him on why he was shining a light into cars that early in the morning.
While you're on intense patrol, be on the lookout please for the culprit that broke into the 2 homes in the 1800 block of S.19th Street and stole real items of importance to city dwellers. Those crimes have never been solved although it's been said that it's a very local culprit. Not as important as thievery from the city, I agree, nevertheless...

Great Job Kyle Shenandoah!!.... Recruiting more than 50 city employers and agencies, like SEPTA and PECO, featuring nearly a 100 job offers, Shenandoah says the upcoming event hopes to reach as many South Philly residents as possible. From the University of Penn to the Urban League of Philadelphia, close to a dozen organizational partnerships from around the city are working to make the fair a reality. https://southphillyreview.com/second-annual-career-fair-in-grays-ferry-set-for-june-2-7e96be7de448

    Second annual career fair in Grays Ferry set for June 2
    While teaching first and second grade, Grays Ferry Civic Association Vice President Kyle Shenandoah conducted an experiment to maintain order in the rowdy classroom. Assigning students various tasks, like sharpening pencils or attending to the bathroom, he noticed a shift in their behavior - a correlation, he'd come to realize, that also exists in his backyard.
