    A Philadelphia library gets 'risky' with a new play space
    It's a weekday afternoon just before 3:00 p.m. and Cecil B. Moore Library in North Philadelphia is quiet. But librarian Kayla Hoskinson says when school lets out, kids will flock to the library's newest attraction: a ten-foot-by-ten-foot climbing wall. "They really, really love it," says Hoskinson.

    Imagine finding mouse droppings on a duck that was about to be cooked or rusted paint chips in a barrel of pork. That is what Philadelphia food inspectors recently encountered. Add those discoveries to the spoiled and rotting bar food, baby roaches crawling around sinks, live and dead mice, a couple of cats, overflowing sewerage, undated Scrapple and you have the newest edition of Clean Plates.
