    Remember this name: Tamir Harper, a kid from Southwest Philly, is going places.
    Remember the name Tamir Harper. At 18, the Southwest Philly kid has become a go-to speaker at education conferences both local and national. Superintendent William R. Hite Jr. considers Harper "remarkable," and Michelle Obama recently introduced him on stage in front of thousands of cheering students.

Congrats to our friends and partners from Community Solutions CDC on this great write-up about their Father's Day Block Party tomorrow! Go check it out if you can, they have lots of fun stuff in store. And Happy Father's Day in advance to all the dads in the community!

    How does West Philly celebrate Father's Day? With a 1,000-person block party
    West Philly likes block parties. A lot. Two years ago, it ranked first for the Philadelphia neighborhood with the most block parties in the entire city. So naturally, warm weather holidays often mean more of the same: outdoor fun featuring barbecues, bouncy castles, the closing of streets and re-routing of SEPTA buses.

    He confessed to 3 murders, but is being tried for 1
    When James Barrow walked into a Delaware State Police station more than two years ago and said he'd killed a Philadelphia man in 2009, he did so "knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily," and therefore his video-recorded confession can be used against him during his September trial, Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Sandy L.V.

But last month his administration quietly took the first step toward demolishing a perfectly sound and heavily used Queen Village meeting hall.
