    Rodent droppings in kid's classrooms close Philadelphia care centers - Philly
    In this Clean Plates edition, there was moldy food, rusty food slicer blades, rodent contaminated cat food bags and a men's restroom without a door. But what was really disgusting was the number of cases of mice and rat droppings that were found in children's classrooms and restrooms. Philadelphia food inspectors temporarily closed 34 facilities between April 1 and April 13.

Never give out financial info over the phone.

    As Tax Day Approaches, Watch Out For Phone Scammers
    It's not every day that the Pennsylvania State Police call to say they have a warrant out for your arrest. But that's exactly what happened to me in late March. At least, that's what the caller said was happening.
