Vare Washington is trying to bring musical theater back to their school! Performance will be this May, and open to the public. Please consider a donation to help purchase costumes, lighting, props, and the rights to the musical itself. Any amount will help achieve this goal!

    Bring Back Our Musical! by Zachary Duberstein
    Prior to the merger of Abigail Vare and George Washington Schools, George Washington was known for putting on amazing musical performances; lighting, elaborate costumes, choreographed dance and song routines, the works! Sadly, due to lack of adequate funding, the school has gone without a musical for several years.

One of Philadelphia’s Finest Recognized for His Work in the Community

Paul Bryson started playing ball at Edward O’Malley Athletic Association, 144 Moore St., at age 5 and coaching at 13. In fact, the whole Bryson clan spent most of its time at the athletic haven.

“It kept the family out of trouble,” the native of the 400 block of Winton Street said. “It was something for us to do in the community.”

As a teen, he refereed hockey at EOM and umpired the summer baseball league at Burke Playground, Second and Jackson streets — in between playing his own hockey, baseball and football games. During the school year, he would try to squeeze in a snooze between school and practice.

“Sometimes I didn’t have a cat nap,” the St. John Neumann High School, 2600 Moore St., and Lincoln Technical Institute grad said. “I’d go right down to football. … I was always on the run from the time I got up to the time I went to bed.”

With his day job as community relations officer at the 1st District, 2301 S. 24th St., Bryson, who resides on the 2600 block of South Front Street with wife Patty, has sacrificed his vacation time to ensure he rarely missed a game.

    Mice gnawing on dried fish, an unapproved George Foreman grill close Philly restaurants
    It's the holiday season and you have to expect everyone to indulge, including mice. There were reports of the little critters in snack bags, gnawing on dried fish and roaming the candy isles. Couple those citations with expired bacon, dented cans, dirty deli slicers, an unapproved George Foreman grill and you have this week's Clean Plates report.
