    One of the biggest threats to Philly murals? New construction
    In Point Breeze, the "Dream in Flight" mural is a symbol. "It represents people coming together," said Alfred Rodgers, 53, who owns Goodman's clothing store on Point Breeze Avenue near Dickinson, about a hundred feet away. Commissioned by Mural Arts, the image of a young boy with a dove in his outstretched hand was painted by community artist Josh Sarantitis in 2000.

    Philly DA Krasner's new unit to prosecute elder financial abusers
    Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner is forming a new unit in his office focusing on financial elder exploitation cases, noting the problem strikes close to home: His own father-in-law was targeted by a "grandparent scam."

    New video: GOP gubernatorial hopeful loves West Philly
    Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner has posted a new internet video featuring a setting not typically associated with a Republican candidate. Wagner appears (see video above) in Malcolm X Park in West Philadelphia, talking exclusively with black people - hugging, shaking hands, high-fiving a little girl, speaking with a woman wearing a hijab.

    Philly suburb issues cease-and-desist orders to residents running Airbnbs
    Collingswood, a small, revitalized borough with a quaint downtown shopping district a few miles to the east of Philadelphia, is not the sort of place frequented by tourists. With its proximity to Philly, its major events and area hospitals, it's the sort of place that a few dozen residents deemed perfect to offer short-term lodging, mostly commonly through the online service Airbnb.
