    Jullion Kelsey has gone through a lot. The tall, strapping 18-year-old from South Philadelphia grew up with his grandmother as his primary caregiver. He had nobody else - his mom lived in Georgia "and I couldn't live with her." His grandmother made an effort.

    Will audit findings spark a Philly takeover of the PPA?
    A move to potentially bring the Philadelphia Parking Authority back under city control had been floated around before Pennsylvania's auditor general released damning audit findings on the authority Thursday. A state House bill proposing the city take back control of the PPA from Harrisburg was referred to committee nine months ago and still awaits a vote there.

    Why police are finally looking into the Philly restaurant scammer case
    Thanks to some quick action by a couple of small business owners, the Philadelphia Police Central Detective Division is opening a file on the woman who's been repeatedly scamming Philly restaurants for cash. The woman visited Waffles & Wedges near 15th and Pine on Friday afternoon and attempted to pull her usual ruse - which has prompted local restaurateurs to start calling her "the hair lady."

    How redlining segregated Philadelphia
    Or consider public housing, which began as a segregated service with different complexes designated for white and black workers. But by the 1950s, public housing became mostly populated by black Philadelphians, and so the location of the sites almost perfectly correlates with the areas of the city that HOLC rated D and colored red.

    How diversity saved a historic church in West Philly
    Kirk was brought on board by his neighbor, Bob Jaeger, a co-director of the then newly-founded Partners for Sacred Places, a local non-profit group that works to preserve endangered historic churches. "I think the Methodist hierarchy, at that time, wanted to close the congregation down," said Kirk.
