    A story of love, loyalty, the Eagles, and the Super Bowl | Mike Sielski - Philly
    BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - This is a story about love and loyalty and football in Philadelphia. It does not involve batteries or booing or snowballs or Santa Claus or any of the stereotypes and clichés that, for so many people ready to believe that the worst of Philadelphia is all of Philadelphia, have come to define Eagles fans.

"Schuylkill Banks announced Wednesday that South to Christian has opened to trail users, extending the trail by another 1,400 feet and closing the gap between the Boardwalk and Grays Ferry Crescent. It’s a soft opening for the trail, with an official dedication following in the spring, according to the Schuylkill Banks, which also asked users to “please stay on paved areas only while plants and grasses become established.” In the meantime, the trail is open and already saw some use on Wednesday by cyclists and pedestrians."

    The South to Christian segment on the Schuylkill River Trail is open
    It's been years in the making, but another portion of the Schuylkill River Trail has opened, this time between South and Christian streets.

    Rasual Butler knew how to fly - Philly
    The mural at Smith Playground, 24th and Snyder, shows football players and hoops players and baseball players and a track runner and a gymnast all in action. There are words spread around the mural. Practice. Soar. Help others. Be Strong. Fly. The words apply to anybody's life, but they should add a specific portrait to the mural.

"The refinery is Philadelphia’s single largest generator of particulate emission air pollution, according to city data. In the 19145 zip code that Thompson and her son call home, asthma is common among children, and the rates of hospitalization for the ailment are among the highest in the city. The cancer mortality rate too is among the highest in the city. ... Irene Russell is 66 years old and has lived in Grays Ferry all her life. She said her daughter and a couple of her grandsons have asthma, and that some friends have died of cancer. She blames it on the refinery but says she’ll never move out of her neighborhood. “If I’m not in Grays Ferry, then I’m nowhere in Philadelphia — I’ll rather go to Florida,” Russell said."

    With South Philadelphia refinery in bankruptcy proceedings, neighbors see an opportunity for cleaner air
    Zalaka Thompson lives less than a mile from the biggest oil refinery on the East Coast. Though the Schuylkill Expressway separates her home from the Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) crude facility, she feels its presence daily. Her 14-year old son has asthma and carries an inhaler with him at all times, on the doctor's orders.
