Op-ed from John Buffington

Let’s Reverse Trumpery

    Op-ed from John Buffington
    Representative John Taylor has decided to retire, so this year's election for the 177th Pennsylvania House District Seat is the one and only time that Democrats have a good opportunity to rise up in their righteous anger and deliver a stinging blow to Trumpery, gerrymandering, global warming, fracking, gun violence, misogyny, and compulsory pregnancy.

Can You Be A “Turning Point” In A Child’s Life?

Do you have space in your home and your heart for a foster child? Could you be a foster parent – full or part-time or on an emergency basis? This is the question that Latasha Myers and Marcus Wing, Resource Home Coordinators, at Turning Points for Children are asking us to consider. Their “job”, but it is so much than a job, is to build stronger families, giving them and the community a foundation for a brighter future.

Community Garden Taking Shape in Frankford on Paul Street

Mizpah 7th Day Adventist Church has permission to use the vacant lot next to the church at 4353 Paul Street.

    Community Garden Taking Shape in Frankford on Paul Street
    The planning meeting for the Community Garden was attended by 10 residents last week and everyone brought their best ideas for the project. The good news was that a local neighbor, who knows the owner of the lot next to the church, contacted him and he was happy to give the church use of the property and would be happy to donate the land.
