    Stacey Lee Webber at the 2017 PMA Craft Show
    So this is what's happening at the Globe Dye Works. "I am often inspired by my environment," she says. "Currently the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia in the Globe Dye Works building [is inspiring me]. The row housing, electric wires dangling, trash on the street are all sources of inspiration."

Skateboard Company Pays it Forward

A few years ago, after passing the skateboard park at Carmella Playground for the 1,000th time, I stopped by there to take some pictures.  It was no big deal but I ended up staying two hours, watching the kids do their thing.  They are the best of the lot, honing their skills there rather than down at Love Park.  It was news to me, but this is a serious sport and some of our local guys, John Valentin, is right up there with the best.

Election Day is November 7th

Nobody gets too excited by these mid term elections but they are important nevertheless.  Those judges on the ballot do make a difference and the election process makes it hard to decide.  The Committee of Seventy has finally come up with something to help sort this out.  There is an online tool that will let you look at the ballot before those folks at the door of the polling place put anything into your hand.

ELECTION DAY IS TUESDAY!

    The procrastinator's guide to the November 2017 general election
    The first general election in Philadelphia since Donald Trump shook up the establishment is shaping up to be a small one. No City Council spots or even state representative seats are up for grabs. Instead, this election features a few judgeships and two ballot questions, City Controller and, most prominently, District Attorney.
