We're nearly finished with our 20 Years, 20 Stories series, but not before we check in with Mariposa Food Co-op. Check out how the cooperatively owned grocery has stayed in business for 45 years, what are some of the staff members' favorite items, and learn more about Mariposa's evolution from operating out of basements to their popular Baltimore Avenue store.

    Mariposa: The Little Co-op that Could
    A recent frigid morning didn't stop shoppers from making their way into Mariposa Co-op. The cooperative grocery store fills the building at 4824 Baltimore Avenue to bursting with farm-fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, bulk grains, nuts and pasta, high-quality meats and cheeses, and much more.

“We want a bill that creates a predictable environment for charter applications and renewal and that low-qualities are shut down or never opened.” ICYMI: Rep. Jordan Harris, Rep. James Roebuck Mastery Charter Schools and others discussed the new Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) report on Charter Schools. http://ucreview.com/new-report-opens-debate-on-how-to-regulate-pa-charter-schools-p7637-1.htm

    New report opens debate on how to regulate PA charter schools
    A new report on charter schools confirms some of the concerns lawmakers, school officials, parents and others have had about the state of education in Pennsylvania. However, it also points the way toward improving it. Last week, the nonprofit group Public Citizens for Children & Youth released data comparing the performances of public and charter schools across the state.

Widely distributed and numerous, birds of prey populate Penn’s campus

Suite 200 3901 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19104-3608

    Widely distributed and numerous, birds of prey populate Penn's campus
    Red-tailed hawks and other birds of prey have become a common sight on campus, surprising some unfamiliar with these adaptable birds. While crisscrossing campus this winter, careful observers may have noticed some wildlife species beyond the typical trash-picking squirrels and waddling pigeons.

The Philadelphia Historical Commission voted to designate five very different buildings as historic, which means that any exterior changes would have to be approved by the commission.

He's quitting his job and, to a large degree, banking his first political campaign on it. Curry, a Democrat, entered the race for State Representative of the 188th District early this month.
