Plan for police HQ at Inquirer building prompts call for outside appraisals in city real estate deals

The revelation that the city received no independent guidance on the property’s value could add to concerns over its spending on the Police Department’s planned move from its current headquarters in the dated four-story building at 750 Race St. known as the Roundhouse.

This article has 3 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

The bill, introduced Jan. 25 with Councilman Bobby Henon as a cosponsor, was a response to Domb’s discovery late last year that no independent appraisal had been done for the 400 N. Broad St. building. which housed editorial offices for the Inquirer, the Daily News, and Philly.com until July 2012.

    Plan for police HQ at Inquirer building prompts call for outside appraisals in city real estate deals - Philly
    Philadelphia officials say their agreement to pay $249 million to a developer for a new city Police Headquarters in the former Inquirer building on North Broad Street is a good deal for the city. But that position is not backed up by an independent appraisal of the property's value, because none was completed.

    In Elkins Park, the Year of the Dog starts off ruff - Philly
    In Cheltenham Township, the Year of the Dog has gone to the dogs. Two of them, to be exact. A yellow Lab named Sadie, and a black Lab mix called Lanie. They trotted into the Elkins Park Library this week to provide a friendly, furry welcome to the Lunar New Year, joining about 30 children and parents in a boisterous red-and-gold celebration.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today’s post comes from the Allegheny National Forest (ANF), Pennsylvania’s only National Forest. This photograph was taken in August 1926 and shows two lovers on the trail to Heart’s Content near Warren, PA. At this site in particular, the U.S. Forest Service conducted a series of experiments and ecological studies that focused on developing new methods to protect America’s beautiful wealth of land. A few examples of the new sustainability concepts introduced at ANF in the 1920s included preserving seeds for future growth, maintaining watersheds, and guarding wildlife habitats. The purpose of this mission was to create a long lasting and healthy forest, one that generations to come could all explore and enjoy. So on this day dedicated to love, show your affection to not only the people you care about, but the places you appreciate too! This post was written by Megan Kelly, Research and Writing Intern at the National Archives at Philadelphia. #happyvalentinesday #valentine #valentinesday #alleghenynationalforest #ANF #forest #love #hisory #archives Citation: Photograph from Heart's Content Trail; Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, Timber Management Research Station; RG095 U.S. Forest Service; National Archives at Philadelphia (NAID: 28208828) and (HMS ID/Record Entry ID: PH-3926).

“I mean what would people say if I told them that the Partridge Family was probably the single biggest influence on me becoming a professional musician? That doesn’t fit the standard narrative but I’d like to mention it.” - Stew Explore the musical influences of of PASSING STRANGE in this new blog post. #WilmaPassingStrange #PlayAllNight

    Musical Influences
    Stew had a passion for music from a young age. Between singing gospel at church and joining an R&B band at 14, his influences span every genre, from Gospel to Pink Floyd. Stew said in an interview with Wilma Dramaturg Walter Bilderback, "I mean what would people say if I told them that the Partridge Family was probably the single biggest influence on me becoming a professional musician?

The Wilma Theater added an event.

PART TWO: ADVANCED HOTHOUSE METHODS March 6 – 9 Advanced HotHouse Methods is designed for participants who already have some foundation in the physical and vocal practices of the Wilma HotHouse, either through taking Part One of the HotHouse intensive or through a previous intensive with Blanka Zizka. Advanced HotHouse Methods follows a similar structure as Part One, but will progress into new content. Justin Jain introduces the next level in the Method of Mr. Terzopoulos, which focuses on the vocal aspect of this training. In the second portion of each class, Blanka Zizka delves deeply into text work and what it means to fully embody the text in performance, which as Blanka explains in the Wilma HotHouse's New York Times feature, “is to have emotion, body, voice, all in fluid expression.” SCHEDULE PART TWO: Tuesday, March 6: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Wednesday, March 7: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Thursday, March 8: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM Friday, March 9: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM ... Click on the ticket link to purchase tickets for both part one and part two of the HotHouse Intensive. For questions about the class call Education Assistant Rachel Beecher at 215-893-9456 ext. 113. TUITION: $250 for one week or $400 if you take both Wilma HotHouse Intensive: Part One and Part 2. NOTE: "Introduction to HotHouse Methods" or a previous intensive with Blanka Zizka is a prerequisite for taking "Advanced HotHouse Methods." * All HotHouse intensives are designed for advanced acting students and professional actors, but curious and brave directors, playwrights, educators, etc. are always welcome. * Come prepared to move. The work can be rigorous but adjustments will be made for various body types, injuries, and physical limitations
