Wagner Wins GOP Gov. Primary, Fetterman Pulls Off Upset

Incumbent U.S. Reps. Dwight Evans and Brendan Boyle were the first declared victors in the Pennsylvania mid-term primary election Tuesday night. Both were heavy favorites in the 2nd and 3rd district Democratic primaries, respectively. Evans will face Bryan Leib while Boyle will face David Torres. 

    Wagner Wins GOP Gov. Primary, Fetterman Pulls Off Upset
    Scott Wagner, a York native who made a fortune in the sanitation business, won the Republican primary for Pennsylvania governor and will challenge incumbent Gov. Tom Wolf in November.

These Are the 10 Most Affordable Homes in Pennsport

At 904 square feet. 512 Emily St. is one of the roomier houses on this list. It’s also the one that was most recently rehabbed. | Bright MLS image via BHHS Fox & Roach Realtors

“The property in need of some renovation (139 Morris St.) is rightly priced among the lowest asking prices on a per-square-foot basis to reflect the needed work that the buyer will be assuming,” said Constantine Valhouli, director of research for NeighborhoodX.

    These Are the 10 Most Affordable Homes in Pennsport
    One of them needs some fixing up, and two more could use some freshening up, but most of these offer good value for the money. Besides being home to most of the Mummers clubs, Pennsport is also home to both modest rowhomes and more luxurious new construction.

‘No Complaints’: From Life in Poland to Philadelphia

They settled in South Philly in a house with three or four other families at Seventh and Dickinson streets. Her mother started working at a factory while looking for an apartment.

They eventually found an apartment at Fourth and Tasker streets, and Kornsgold and her brother started school — which was detailed in the 1949 Exponent article.

    'No Complaints': From Life in Poland to Philadelphia - Jewish Exponent
    Rose Kornsgold got a call from her granddaughter a few months ago excitedly telling her, "Bubbe, you're famous!" Kornsgold's picture was featured in the Sept. 28, 2017 issue of the Jewish Exponent for a flashback story about 200 refugee children who began attending public schools in Philadelphia.
