    Home sweet home - Star news
    By Melissa Komar While libraries are often perceived as quiet places, there's quite a buzz at the Richmond Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. On Thursday, June 7, a colony of approximately 10,000 honey bees, with one queen, arrived at the Port Richmond library, and was installed in an observation box fitted in a window to the far right of the entrance.

Today I met with industry leaders from Bridesburg and Port Richmond to reach agreement about how to handle the problem of short dumping along this industrial corridor of the district. Most of the time short dumpers are small contractors or residents who don’t want to take trash and debris to a City Sanitation Center or privately owned dumps. Instead of being good neighbors, they leave piles of trash, mattresses, tires, and shopping carts in front of businesses and in neighborhoods. If you see someone illegally dumping trash or debris, try to write down their license plate and report the location to my office!
