    After 40 years, first of MOVE 9 is paroled - but others denied
    On Saturday, Debbie Africa left the State Correctional Institution Cambridge Springs and, after 38 years, became the first of the MOVE Nine to be released on parole. She also said goodbye to two women she's been incarcerated with for four decades. Both were denied parole last week, for reasons Africa can't understand.

    A gnawed bag of raw poultry, meat particles on the ceiling close Philly eateries
    A gnawed bag of raw poultry with mouse feces on the package in a walk-in cooler is just gross. Knowing there could be meat particles on the ceiling will have me looking up from now on. And, the person in charge at another restaurant placed his hand inside a rice container after handling a container with mice droppings....ick.

When the ‘Skeleton Crew’ becomes just a skeleton, from People’s Light

“Skeleton Crew” is extended through July 15 at People’s Light, 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern. 610-644-3500 or peopleslight.org.

    Review: When the 'Skeleton Crew' becomes just a skeleton, from People's Light
    The question at the Detroit plant that produces thousands of car parts a day is not just whether the place will close down. The persistent rumor along the assembly lines is that it will. The question is whether the skilled workers will get a financial package before they're led out the door.

    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.

    In early June 2018, City Council approved the first round of sites for Rebuild! Here's what that means and why that's important. Rebuild is the City's program to improve parks, rec centers, playgrounds, and libraries across Philly's neighborhoods. Most sites will be funded through bonds paid for by the Philadelphia Beverage Tax.

    Queen Village makes room for memorial to a historic African American burial ground | Inga Saffron
    Over the course of his two-plus years in office, Mayor Kenney has been unable to make good on his signature campaign promise to rebuild the city's dilapidated rec centers. But last month his administration quietly took the first step toward demolishing a perfectly sound and heavily used Queen Village meeting hall.
