PennLive.com visited Historic Strawberry Mansion and Julia Hatmaker took some incredible photos of our holiday decor. While everyone talks about our ornate ballroom, they particularly like the banquet room with its mural of Fairmount Park. http://www.pennlive.com/life/2017/12/holiday_decorations_eleanor_ro.html

    This historic mansion is filled with treasures (and Christmas decorations): Cool Spaces
    Holidays and history coincide at the Historic Strawberry Mansion, a 18th century summer home built by one of Pennsylvania's foremost abolitionists, Judge William Lewis. The mansion is one of five historic homes participating in A Very Philly Christmas, a holiday house tour in Fairmount Park.

Ethel Allen, at 33rd Street and Lehigh Avenue, has a student body that is almost entirely African American and low-income. The school has a computer science teacher, Amrita Desai, and a 6th-grade teacher, Syreeta Thomas, has emerged as the digital learning evangelist there. They both work to infuse technology, problem-solving and coding into every aspect of the curriculum. All students have access to a Chromebook or iPad. Desai said the coding brings together younger students and older students, as well as those who are proficient readers and those who aren't. When coding, "they can work on the same website and talk the same language," she said.

    Coding: The new literacy?
    Kahleel Odom, an eighth-grader at Ethel Allen Elementary School in North Philadelphia, had one goal in mind: escaping the zombies. He was peering at his Chromebook, and the maneuver required several steps, so he could move his Minecraft avatar block by block.

Suspect sought in attempted lurings in Philadelphia; photos show vehicles used

Police believe it's the same man, a light complected black male in his 20s with a mustache and possibly a beard, who managed to lure two brothers, an 11 and 14-year-old into his car. It happened at a gas station at 3301 Ridge Avenue in Strawberry Mansion.

This article has 3 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Now they say he's back at it again, and this in the neighborhoods of Germantown and East Mount Airy.

Police say in East Mount Airy the predator tried to lure a 16-year-old boy into his car at a bus stop in the 6600 block of Stenton Avenue on Monday evening around 5 p.m.

And Thursday night about four or five blocks away at Stenton and Haines in Germantown, he did it again. He approached another 16-year-old male waiting for a bus. In both instances he showed them pornographic video on his cell phone, but the young man ignored him and got away.

    Suspect sought in attempted lurings in Philadelphia
    Philadelphia Police have released surveillance pictures of two vehicles in connection with two attempted lurings. According to police, the suspect has already successfully lured two young boys in Philadelphia's Strawberry Mansion section, and indecently sexually assaulted them. Now they say he's back at it again, and this in the neighborhoods of Germantown and East Mount Airy.
