    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.

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.

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.
