person walking trying to open all automobiles doors which are left unlocked.

There's a man walking down 7500 block of Limekiln Pike and he's checking all doors to your automobiles to see if they were left unlocked. 2 people have had things taken from their automobiles due to their own negligence. He's a petty thief who takes cartons of water and paper towels toilet paper and any change you may have in your car. He even took handicapped placards left in the glove compartment.Please take a moment and lock your doors.He goes from car to car. I witnessed him doing this but he moves quickly.

Free Library of Pride For the second year, the Free Library of Philadelphia is going all out for Pride, with neary 50 LGBTQ-related events at its more than 20 branches. “The Free Library of Pride program is really driven by librarians, and the the librarians are really responding to the needs that they see from their patrons,” says Andrew Nurkin, head of the Free Library’s Center for Public Life. That means events for all ages, ranging from the scholarly to the silly. Here are a few highlights and the entire lineup of events: https://libwww.freelibrary.org/calendar/main/home/page/1/terms/free-library-of-pride

    Celebrate Pride Month by returning to its roots
    June is Pride Month, which means celebrations of the LGBTQ community all month long, including the 30th annual Philadelphia Pride Parade this weekend. Pride has become synonymous with rainbow flags, day drinking, and glitter, but it began with the riots at the Stonewall Inn in 1969 and was fueled by decades of activism - raising awareness about AIDS, agitating for equal rights and marriage equality.

While there are many different formats these days - it looks like traditional books may be best for some children.

    What's Going On In Your Child's Brain When You Read Them A Story?
    "I want The Three Bears!" These days parents, caregivers and teachers have lots of options when it comes to fulfilling that request. You can read a picture book, put on a cartoon, play an audiobook, or even ask Alexa. A newly published study gives some insight into what may be happening inside young children's brains in each of those situations.

Is a Montco Elected Official Mixing Government and Politics to Closely?

The Times Of The Freedom Valley: 1929 Johnson Road, Plymouth..

    Is a Montco Elected Official Mixing Government and Politics to Closely? - MoreThanTheCurve
    Elected officials need to walk a tightrope between governing and campaigning. For example, an elected official will have a website for whatever elected office he or she holds (a government-owned website) to communicate as an elected official and then a separate one that is for campaigning and communicating as a politician.
