    Dozens ordered to leave West Philly apartments ahead of sale
    Dozens of residents in two West Philadelphia apartment buildings received letters April 9 telling them to move out by April 30 when the doors would be locked and utilities shut off. The letter said the city was ordering the landlord to cease operations. The city, however, said Tuesday that it issued no such order.

Neighbors: THIS IS ILLEGAL. Actually several aspects of this story indicate illegality. If you are a renter your landlord MUST have and be able to show you a rental license. If they don't have one, you do not have to pay rent AND they may owe you back rent. Furthermore, evictions must go through a legal process, landlords can not force evictions without doing so. Contact us if you have questions. We're not experts but we can help get answers if you need them.

    'People realized smog could kill': Legacy of 4 deadly days in Donora, Pa.
    It wasn't unusual for smog to hang over the town of Donora, 27 miles south of Pittsburgh on the bank of the Monongahela River, in the mornings. But on Oct. 26, 1948, it just grew thicker and thicker. And people began to die.

    This time of year is notorious for potholes, and there seems to be even more of them than usual. If you live literally anywhere in Philly, chances are you can name at least four road craters giving your neighborhood trouble.

    Even small changes on the playground help students develop confidence, build social and leadership skills, and get the "brain break" needed for academic success. A report from the Institute of Medicine found that children who are more active "show greater attention, have faster cognitive processing speed, and perform better on standardized academic tests than children who are less active."
