"More than 70 people – parents, grandparents, teachers, educators, library staff, and residents – packed the conference room at the Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library, 68 W. Chelten Ave. in Germantown, on May 18 to meet with members of Mayor Kenney’s appointed Philadelphia School Board, which will replace the School Reform Commission on July 1, 2018. Attendees said the new school board needs to be more transparent, develop a master plan to implement policies to address issues, establish basic facility standards, change the current format for board meetings to include more community decision-making involvement, increase partnerships between the schools and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department."

Hoarding is a serious problem amongst older adults. For National Pat Rack Day, learn how to help:

    5 Methods to Help Senior Hoarding
    It may seem like the elderly individuals within your life retain so many material items. With age comes great clutter. Often, belongings increase over the years; therefore, the more years a person has within their life, the more possessions they may own, generally speaking. There are various reasons why senior citizens are prone to hoarding.
