    New, easier-to-use SEPTA App offers real-time ETAs
    SEPTA released a new mobile app Wednesday night. Called SEPTA beta, it's a major overhaul of SEPTA's oft-derided old app. Users will notice some big changes: A brand new interface, the ability to save "favorite" routes - like your daily commute - for easy access, and, probably most importantly of all, vehicle arrival time updates every 30 seconds.

    Fly pupae on soda gun, live mice in glue traps cited at Philly eateries
    Twenty four restaurants, markets and stores were closed temporarily by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health between Nov. 1 and Nov. 15. Inspectors were busy in the last two weeks citing food establishments for a myriad of offenses. It's fall and while leaves are dropping from trees, finding them on cheese is never a good thing.

    SRC votes to dissolve, taking first step toward local control of schools
    Many, including Mayor Kenney, have wondered aloud in the past if the dissolution of the SRC would damage relations with Harrisburg and imperil attempts at cooperation. Monson and Geary, however, said they noticed no change in lawmaker attitudes toward the formula change, even as the momentum gathered for local control.
