https://whyy.org/articles/pa-state-appellate-court-judges-could-be-elected-by-districts-under-new-proposal/

    Plan to elect Pa. judges by regional district has less precedent than suggested by Senate GOP
    When senators passed a proposal this week aimed at creating a citizens commission to draw Pennsylvania's congressional maps, they tacked on an amendment that would fundamentally change the state's appellate courts by electing judges based on regional district, instead of statewide. It's not a unique concept for state courts to be arranged that way.

    Letter-to-the-editor: Another anti-growth measure comes out of Philadelphia City Hall - Philadelphia Business Journal
    The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia has serious concerns with the legislation introduced today that will create a rigid mandate for employees and employers related to their work schedules. This is yet another anti-growth, out-of-sync initiative introduced in City Council. The mandated scheduling employee/employer legislation will restrict and discourage economic growth.

Three months sober and looking for a place to stay in Philly, Louis Gay shelled out $200 to a recovery house recommended by a city social worker. After finding bed bugs, roaches and an abusive manager, he left without staying and asked for his money back. Didn't get it. The recovery house is still operating — but at least the city won't send people there anymore. https://billypenn.com/2018/06/16/after-allegations-of-bed-bugs-and-grift-city-facility-cuts-ties-with-south-philly-recovery-house/

But times have changed, and they've changed rather quickly. The transition is nothing short of amazing, as the block has gone from zero buildings to over a dozen new residential structures.
