    What the heck happened to this Center City trash can?
    A BigBelly solar trash can right in the heart of Center City looks like it had a tragic stomachache. The trash can, located at the northeast corner of Broad and Sansom streets, was completely destroyed Wednesday morning. It appeared to have been severed in half while some of the plastic looked to have melted.

We are thrilled to play a part in impacting the lives of families such as Amari's through the Everyday Literacy program! Read more about Amari's experience in the program: http://www.parent-child.org/home-visiting-remarks-philadelphia/ Everyday Literacy is a play-based family program for children ages 0-5 and their families in North Philadelphia. Smith is pleased to partner with Pennsylvania Parent-Child Home Program and the Philadelphia Housing Authority's Raymond Rosen Community Center for this two-year initiative, funded by the William Penn Foundation, to take early learning programming directly to families in ways that not only engage children, but also involve adults as active participants by building their skills to support language and literacy learning at home. #informallearning #playmatters #learningthroughplay #smithplays

    The opioid overdose crisis is hitting all of Philadelphia, new data show
    A new analysis of overdose deaths and where they occurred in Philadelphia over the last decade shows that although the Kensington area is by far the hardest hit, few corners of the city are untouched by an opioid crisis that usually kills in private homes, away from the open-air heroin encampments that have received so much attention.

    Guest Commentary: It's time to shake up the Office of Property Assessment
    Budget season in Philadelphia comes with at least one guarantee: ritual beatings of civil servants and grandstanding by City Council members. As stories about School District deficits , property tax delinquents , and a missing $33 Million make headlines, Chief Assessment Officer Michael Piper's Office of Property Assessment has largely escaped scrutiny outside PlanPhilly.

    Imagine receiving an 'F' from your teacher because of errors in the first draft of a term paper, even though your final paper had no errors? That's essentially what occurred last week, when City Controller Rebecca Rhynhart embarked on a PR campaign accusing the City of $924 million worth of errors that, in fact, have long since been resolved.
