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

“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.

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.

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.

“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.”

How Jesus Christ Block Parties help fight Philly’s opioid crisis

Lawler’s twisted journey began in the 1980s when he was a young teenager on the 300-block of Gladstone Street in Whitman, popping Xanax and smoking marijuana. His early rebellion would morph into years of addiction, crime and incarceration.

    How Jesus Christ Block Parties help fight Philly's opioid crisis
    The Dunkin' Donuts at Fifth and Oregon attracts as diverse a clientele as you'll see in Philadelphia. Police officers, men and women in scrubs, a few people in suits and others in clothes ready for the curb stand in line for coffees.

This Week In College Basketball: Porter Jr. Done For Year

Porter suffered a back injury in his first college game, and it will require a microdiscectomy of the L3-L4 spinal discs. A recovery period of 3-4 months is likely, and the 6-10 Porter is not likely to return in March if he recovers by then.

    This Week In College Basketball: Porter Jr. Done For Year
    It's a long college basketball season that is just at the beginning stages, but it's clear that the Duke Blue Devils are setting the early pace. Duke is the No. 1 team in the nation according to the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the third straight week, while Arizona and Kansas follow at No.
