Veterans of the Month for February 2018

100 years ago, the United States was at war.  It became official on April 6th of 1917 and in June of that year, young men all over America and Frankford, began registering for the draft.  The war in Europe had been going on since 1914 and was at a stalemate.  It would take the entry of the United States to bring it to an end.

Price of Children’s Lives

NEAR AND FAR

    Price of Children's Lives
    We must ride the tide for Humanity, dig deep for sanity. No longer can we not face reality, when the nature of life is not a fantasy. When children are dying in buildings that they call sanctuaries. Politicians should hear the call of parent's near and far.

Unfortunately, Frankford Branch is closed. However, did you know that you can take the Market-Frankford Line on the corner from here and get off at Allegheny Station, walk two blocks, and you will be at McPherson Square Branch? Or, you can get off at York-Dauphin Station and walk one block to Kensington Branch?

Happy Valentine’s Day! Big thanks to everyone who’s helped us #lovethatlot, transforming a vacant lot into Frankford Pause Park! Special shoutout to Community Design Collaborative, Philadelphia City Planning Commission , PHS : Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Hinge Collective, Frankford Garden Club, Tookany/Tacony-Frankford (TTF) Watershed Partnership, and Frankford Friends School​.

I attended the meeting concerning the current planning stage of the new park to be located where Orthodox meets the Delaware River. Many of us would like this park to be named Point-No-Point Park. Representatives from Langan Engineering asked about this name. Wikipedia has a good article about the name of this area in colonial times. Read the story here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridesburg,_Philadelphia#Point-No-Point --Mike Finn

    Bridesburg, Philadelphia - Wikipedia
    Bridesburg, the northernmost of Philadelphia's River Wards, is a river-front neighborhood in the Northeast section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Bridesburg is an historically German and Irish community, with a significant community of Polish immigrants who arrived mostly in the early- to mid-twentieth century.

Op-Ed from State Representative Jason Dawkins

At age 13, I lost my older brother to homicide. A few years later, my younger brother made a bad decision that resulted in a murder conviction. My story is not unique. I have been a witness to both sides of the criminal justice equation, and I have experienced tragedy that is far too familiar to families and individuals across our nation. But this tragedy has not defined me. I believe in redemption. Our Constitution was founded on such a principle, and I believe that the people of Pennsylvania deserve that same chance at redemption – they deserve our support and they deserve our advocacy.
